Rated 3 out of 5 by change back to button fly instead of snap Prefer the older pant construction with button fly closure above zipper instead of current trend to go to snap. Sometimes doesn't stay closed. May 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Overall this is a good pair of pants. As far as the pockets go, the zippered pockets hangs a little low. If I put anything in this pocket, it hits at the knee. It would be nice if it was a little higher up. It would also be nice if the opposite pocket would accommodate a cell phone, like the Roc II. The legs seemed to run a little longer than the Roc II. But I do like the fact they had this in gray and like the lighter weight fabric. May 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The ultimate pant It's what I wear every day-can't say anything better. I have them in various colors and really don't need any other type of pant-works all season. May 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Traveler I like the slacks and they fit well. I have three pairs and one of them is tearing out in the crotch due to the seam being poorly sewn. The other two are fine. I like to wear them for hiking, yard work and traveling. April 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by great fit comfortable and last a long time/ I wear these pants everyday April 9, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Love the fit but quality and durability suffer When I first got these pants I was contemplating buying several more in different colors for my work pants. I work in the water resources field and Loved the water resistance and pockets. After only 2 washes the pants no longer bead water very well and the seams are coming apart. The Columbia Tag on the back has only a few threads holding it on. This is the second pair of Columbia pants I have bought that have manufacturing defects. Quality control and durability just isn't what I would expect from an "Outdoor oriented" company like this. March 18, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Embarrassment to the Columbia brand I really wanted to like these pants. I tend to be an odd size, and have a really hard time finding pants that fit well. So when I find pants that fit me good I get excited and buy a few pairs. I really like and Columbia stuff and have had a lot of success, but these pants fell far short of my expectation. They are not rugged at all, they attract dirt and grim like a magnet and pears are thinning and wearing out way too early. Every pair I own in thinning out at the crotch. And it isn't a fit issue. They fit good and have plenty of room to move around. I don't even wear them running around the outdoors. I just wear them for day-to-day wear around the house, at work, out shopping, etc. I've had these pants for for less than a year. I usually wear pants 2-3 times between washes to avoid over exposure to the harsh environment of the washer and drier. So my efforts should be helping to extend their life, but the fabric itself just sucks. It is a poor quality weave. It thins out and expands turning more into a mesh material. Holding them up to the light you can see where they thin out. The weave likes to separate. There is no interlock to the fabric, so the slightest flaw and it just unravels. one misplaced stitch near a seam and it causes the whole thing to fall apart. And as I said, the fabric just attracts dirt and grim and seems to hold onto it. Overall I am extremely disappoint and won't be buying any more pairs. The ROC line stinks. March 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pants Have worn these pants for several years now. They are comfortable and durable. Highly recommend this for everyday use. February 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best pants in the history of the world These are like wearing scrubs. if you ever wanted to wear scrubs to work every day, but don't work at a doctors office, but do work somewhere you can wear khaki's, buy these freakin pants!! BEST PANTS EVER!!! I bought 4 pair!! I usually wear a 34/36, had to get a 38. February 16, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!! The pants I received are about an inch too long in the waist and 2 inches longer on the inseam. They are of a cheaper quality than the Columbia pants sold in Belk's Department Store under the same name. February 11, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Construction Quality The legs are very full as it the seat except in the "butt crack" area where the seams are very poorly done and are tight. Had previous problem with ROC II where pocket area was poorly constructed. Wrote to Columbia Customer Service on 2/9 about need to revisit the overall "quality control" for construction and sizing. February 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice, comfortable pants I like how they feel and how comfortable these pants are. Also, they seem to be pretty durable. I found them true to size. The only feature I did not like much is that they are baggier than I could tell from the picture. Overall, these are great everyday and for outdoor activities pants January 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great casual pants I liked the first pair so well, I bought another one. January 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very versatile. Having four pair of Ultimate ROC pants, I can tell you they are comfortable, durable and versatile. They are sized right. I am a bit on the chunky side and these pants fit me well. These pants are perfect for everyday wear around the house, yard work, and casual wear around town. I especially like wearing Ultimate ROC pants when hiking in the mountains. January 22, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Men’s Ultimate ROC™ Pant I have mixed feelings about the Men’s Ultimate ROC™ Pant. I own many items from Columbia including a few pairs of these same pants, which have provided great service. The recent pair I ordered were much smaller than normal. Unfortunately, I took the tags off and threw the pants in the dryer with a wet load of laundry before trying them on. The new paints don't fit over my legs and certainly don't fit my waist despite the fact that the size listed on the tags was correct for me. Perhaps the size was improperly marked. Anyway, I'm stuck with them since I didn't try them on first. January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is it! Finally found the perfect pant! I live in the South and this is good for all seasons here and wears well! I like the fact it is all cotton. When wet it dries quick. I also vacation in the West and it holds up there as well. Comfortable to wear while driving, walking, biking or just lounging. January 15, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Alternate pants I have purchased a similar pant in the past. The older version of the pants is not available. Not sure why. The newer version seems to be of a lesser quality, lighter in weight and seems to have fewer pockets. January 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good pant but a little ight around the lower backside I'm a pretty tall guy's at 6' 8" 220 lbs., so I was looking for a good fitting durable pant with a good amount of utility with cargo style pockets. For the most part I enjoy the design, quality, and feel of the pant, but the lower rearend needs a bit redesign due to it being much tighter than it should be (should be more like the SilverRidge pant). It does loosen up a bit and I've gotten used to the feel, but the designers need to loosen that area up a bit. Other than that, the pockets are nice (although again I wish they were more like the SilverRidge style) and the material is comfortable and of good quality. Overall a good pant and comfortable to wear in most activities. I primarily wear them to a casual office/work environment and running around town etc. January 10, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible quality control! I ordered 2pairs of these pants, to replace a pair I had bought at a store, and liked. 2 pair, same size 34x34. One pair received has an extra inch in waist, and inch less in inseam, as well as being extra wide in legs! The other pair is inch too long in inseam. Pairs labelled identically. January 9, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent Pants - Tight in the Butt! I am an average sized fellow, about 6 foot and 175 lbs. My pants are a little loose in the waist, as this is how I like to wear them. I have worn my 2 ROC pants throughout backpacking trips to Central America. My only complaint is that they are terribly tight in the rear, and this is made worse if anything is placed in the front pockets. A diamond gusset crotch might fix this. They give me a slight wedgie and are embarrassingly snug. I'd say try before you buy, but as they are 100% cotton, they may shrink in the rear! January 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by pants tight around the crotch January 3, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Legs are too big The sizing is right on, but the diameter of the legs is unnecessarily large. I returned them right away. January 3, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ultimate ROC Pant I ordered a 36/32 and either the pants I received were mislabeled or these pants fit way to big. It fit more like a 40/34. Other pants I have ordered with 36/32 fit fine? December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zippered security pocket These pants have zippered security pocket on the thigh and I returned these pants and reordered the "ROC II" pants which have the zippered security pocket on the front hip behind the regular front pocket. If the pictured pants on the web page were more detailed, then I wouldn't have ordered the wrong pants. Otherwise, these pants are good quality and I do recommend these pants. They're good for both outdoor activities and casual wear. These are the pants I wear 95% of the time because of the concealed security pocket on the front hip. December 30, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Tears apart quickly in crotch area These pants are very comfortable and they are loose fitting on me but the crotch wears out waaaaaaaaaaaaay to quickly! Had to throw them away after wearing to work for only 4 months doing general warehouse work. Columbia fix this now please. December 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable These are comfortable pants. Just wished they had a 28 inseam for those with shorter legs. December 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ultimate ROC I blew the crotch out after about 12 uses. They didn't tear at the seam either, so I can't repair them. I wasn't even hard on them, just some casual wear. December 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Go-To Pants Going For A Hike, A Trip To The store Or Out To The Movies, When They Are Clean, These Are My Go To Pants! Great Fit, With Enough Room To Do Some Climbing On More Aggressive Hikes. December 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better Than Jeans I work in agriculture and I find these pants so comfortable that I no longer have jeans in my wardrobe. They wear well and to me, look nicer than jeans. I love them! December 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The "Ultimate" Outdoor Utility Pants I got my first pair of these pants in 2006 in the Arabian Gulf - they still look great and going strong. It is the material and it no kidding "ROC's." The neutral colors allow you to the option to wear these pants with just about evey imaginable color shirt. I mention outdoors utility but they look good enough to wear on "casual Friday." They are not you typical cargo pants. I am a 34" inseam and have them tailored - perfect fit. November 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice casual pants I like these pants as a khakis type of casual wear. I like the hidden pocket in the thigh where my phone fits nicely. As far as fit, I found them to be a bit shorter rise than I expected and they grab me in the butt slightly. November 14, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Oversized Comfortable fabric but very baggy in the back and legs are cut way to large. October 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love these - mucch better build consisteny Sizing and manufacturing consistency is great on these. Very comfortable, but would be great if there was a sibling model that was a bit thicker for colder months. :) October 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rugged, well designed pants These pants seem to be very well built and rugged enough to be used for challenging environments or outdoor work. There are a lot of pockets, but not much unnecessary bulk. The material is thinner and more comfortable in the summer than some similar pants I've owned from manufacturers like Carharrt and Mountain Khakis. I did find that these fit me well in the waist but were more "baggy" along the leg than I typically wear, as well as a little longer than usual. October 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super durable The Ultimate ROC canvas looks great and holds up to wear and tear. I wear them to work and for outdoor activities. Super utilitarian. October 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everyday casual pant. Great when a slight upgrade from jeans is proper. Good fitting work pants that look good enough to wear to any "casual wear" event. I have always liked 100% cotton that is strong enough to work in the woods and smooth enough to go to town. September 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pants I like these pants for work. September 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pair of pants! I have three pairs of these pants. They are a real go-to for me. They are comfortable no matter the activity. They are great in the woods or out to supper with the family. They also have several "hidden"pockets. Overall, my favorite pants in my closet! September 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Second Pair I had a pair of these for a year and the snap did not seem to stay closed all the time. This new pair has a much improved snap. The fit is great, they seem rugged but also thin. I will enjoy these pants for some time I am sure. September 10, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does not fit Do not buy these without trying them on. I have 2 pair of the same stated size, but one is 2 inches bigger in the waist. I can't return them because I took the tags off. September 9, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Runs large I returned my first order for 33W 30L pants. Waist was closer to 34", length almost 32". Replacement pants, also 33 X 30, are a better fit, but still a little long. Attractive fabric, color and style. September 4, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by GET RID OF THE SNAP, COLUMBIA! Great pants. Own many pairs. HATE THAT DANG SNAP! Won't stay snapped. Have replaced the snap with button on ALL of mine! I'd buy more except for the stupid, cheap, snap! August 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great replacement Had issue with snap. They replaced or fixed item to where it looks new. Just order 2 more pairs on outlet. Great for caring gear at office. Only wish the have more extended length in other styles. Tough to find 36 length July 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Versatile I habe worn these hiking and camping, as well as to business sales appointments. They are light weight and tough. They look good and are comfortable to wear all day in any environment. Only issue I've had is tearing a little in the crotch with normal wear and tear. I used a travel sewing kit to stitch it up, and it has held just fine. I would buy these pants again. June 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great in rain Just wore ROC pants in Houston downpour. Shed water nicely and were very comfortable on plane ride home. Wish 38x36 was available in all colors, especially black. June 14, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Unusable and frustrated I normally love these pants, and still do when they fit. I purchased three pairs of these to match a pair I bought and love. To my surprise all three are marked the size I ordered, but are actually three different sizes. The pair I currently own fit fantastic, the three I received from online do not fit, and cannot be worn. Very frustrating. I cannot order a larger size, because if they show up actual size they will be to big. June 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great all around pants I can wear these to work as business casual, or I can go hiking, hunting or fishing w/ these on and not worry about durability. Great pants and the 36" inseam works perfectly for tall guys June 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ultimate ROC Pants Waist size and length run true to size. Good material and comfortable to wear. May 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs Long, not large Nice pants. My 3rd of a similar design. Casual pants, but can pass for business casual. Waist runs true, length was very long. I can usually wear a 36 length. These went past my heels, midway through my foot. Had to return for 34's. Now fine. I like. Hate that I had to return & pay for shipping. May 20, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bummed. Major Lack of quality. I waited to review these pants until I wore them 5-7 times to make sure they were decent quality. I am glad I waited. When I purchased these pants they felt great. I have owned them for about 2 months. Where the crotch seam is and where the belt loop seams are, there are holes and separations. This started happening after about the third time wearing them. I just wore them for everyday use but was hoping I was going to be able to wear them hiking and fishing etc. These pants are pretty low quality. They are now my most expensive oil changing pants since thats about all they are good for now that they are falling apart. Columbia needs to step it up. May 18, 2015
