Women's Anytime Outdoor™ Capri is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Knee pain I have 3 of these and wear a lot. One pair has a lot of picking due to lots of washing. Wish they would come out with more colors and then I'd get more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome capri I was looking for something that looked nice for work, but I could be very active in. These are super comfortable and perfect! I do wish they were slightly looser, but nowadays all women's pants are tight to your rear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect capris I ordered this capri in black at sale price. Had just come back from trip to Cuba in Jan and this was a piece of clothing I did not have and wished for while there. Capri fits great, fabric is light weight and stretchy for comfort, good quality and nice appearance. I do not buy low waists because my hips aren't curvy enough to hold them in place. This waist band hits slightly below waist for a comfortable and secure fit. I have not worn them yet (too cold here) so cannot speak for wear, but I was impressed enough to order two more pair in gray and blue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from capri I love these pants. I wore them to Florida in the Disney Parks and also traveling in Europe. Versatile, easy to pack, and comfortable. My only complaint is some piling on the inner legs on a previous pair. Hope the same doesn't happen to these. I only wash in cold water on gentle and hang dry so - piling is from "cheaper" fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight shorts for travel Heading to South-east Asia this winter! I need clothes that wash in the sink and hang-dry overnight. I think this will do the trick. I usually wear a size 10, but I needed a size 12 in this, and the waist is a bit too big (as in most pants I try on). But the draw-string will take care of any slack in the waist. I like a roomy fit to be comfortable in, for long drives, hikes, and lounging around. I tried the size 10, and it would fit, but just a little too snug for my preferences around the hips. Yes, I'm curvy-- 5'2" 146 lbs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice capris; do get alittle baggy Nice capris. Dress them up or down. Are cool in hot weather and dry quickly. Has a snap at waistline and a tie closure which is needed because they do stretch/bag out at the waist after wearing for awile. Super comfy. I find the tie is Not handicapped friendly if a knot occurs and ya cannot get the knot undone and are in pain. This is why I did not give a 5 star rating. I now refrain from buying any more pants with a tie closure. Wish Columbia could re-do these wonderful capris so no tie closure is needed. NOTE: These capris sold online are different than the same ones sold in Columbia outlet stores: the Outlet store ones have the tie closure on the inside of the pants while the online ones have it on the outside. I find the tie on inside is better aaa far as a less bulky showing look. And the name of these capris is different! Price is the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cool in hot weather I love the Anytime Outdoor Pant, so I thought I'd try the matching Capris. Glad I did! These are great. The material is so "barely there" they are perfect for long forays outside in very hot weather. I work outside in a hot, dusty climate, but we aren't allowed to wear shorts! These fit the bill. I actually wish they were a couple of inches longer, as I like my capris to hit about mid-calf, and these are more just-below-the-knee, but that is totally just a matter of preference. The material is a little slick-ish, so when you're dusty, you just wipe them off with your hands, and the dust puffs right out. I have two colors, and they look great, work great. So far I haven't ripped, pilled, or snagged them or the pants, so they seem to be pretty rugged. I wear a size 10 in pretty much all pants and shorts, and these fit great. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So versatile It fits perfectly! I love how it feels. I even wore it to work on casual day and I got compliments for it. I actually bought the black one as well from an outdoor store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for warm weather I love these capris for camping & just wearing around town when it's really warm. I love how well they travel & how you can wash them i the sink & wear them the next day. The grey is a good neutral colour if you don't want black. The pockets are also a nice touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable fit Very comfortable pants. lightweight fabric, making it a great travel garment. Washes well and dries quickly.
Date published: 2016-06-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I finally found a mail-order pair of pants that fit! It's always been really difficult to find pants that fit online because of my build. I wear between a size 10 - 12, but I have a curvy rear-end and skinnier legs. Oftentimes pants pinch in the rear or gap on my legs. These are my all-time favorite pants ever! Completely comfortable, non-binding, non-baggy. They look really cute on, but they feel like you're wearing a comfortable pair of sweats. Seriously--I'm in love!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous but more colors please I absolutely love the anytime capris and pants. I have almost all of the colors. PLEASE Columbia make them in your everblu, bluebell , marine and tan colors !!! I'd buy them all. I especially love the 18 inch length of the capris; perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Travel pants I bought these pants for a trip to Estonia, Finland and Russia in June. I have a similar pair in the long version. I like them because they are lightweight and easy to pack and will dry quickly if washed. The color is pretty neutral and will go with many tops and dirt will not show easily. I think these capris will work out well for my purposes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Capris Comfortable, light weight, stretchy. I'm 5'5" and weigh 140 lbs. The size 10 is slightly too big...the size 8 is too tight. Kept the size 10. Easy hand wash and dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great style, perfect fit Love these, bought 2 additional after evaluating the first pair. Excellent weight for tropical living, and they're nice enough to wear to a restaurant when shorts are too casual. Pockets are a good size, but putting anything substantial in them ruins the line, which is a bit of a bummer for an anti-purse person like me. I wish Columbia offered a 21" inseam option in this style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome capri These capris are great. They're stretchy and are lightweight. Water beads right off them. I look forward to wearing these to work this summer. I have these in long pants as well and I like them a lot. I wear a 12-14 depending on brand and i bought a 14. They fit great. You don't want these pants to be skin tight, trust me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product is great. The pants are comfortable and do not wrinkle I originally bought these pants to travel but now that I have one then I will definitely wear them all the time this summer.. they look nice enough to wear anytime

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Pants I LOVE these pants. I have three pairs and I wear for multi-purposes - hiking, dog walking, exercise classes, etc... They are slightly stretchy so they will forgive a small weight gain, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent summer capri I was looking for a pant that wasn't a capri and wasn't a short. This fit the bill. It's comfortable and lightweight. I normally wear a 12 but bought a 14 in these based on other reviews. I have the long version of these pants and also love them. Both are perfect for traveling too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from total comfort I tried the trail pants on in a retail store. They did not gap at the waist. The fit is perfect and the fabric feels like it moves with you. I bought a pair at a retail store, I ordered two pairs on line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wear these pants...ALL THE TIME I love these pants. Extremely comfortable material. Great combination -- as comfortable as yoga pants with stretch and drawstring waist, but a little nicer with button/zip-fly. Good length to just below the knee. I own these in three colors and wear them every single week. After owning/wearing/washing them for almost 6 months, they still look like new -- no loose stitches, no wear patterns, etc. Great value.
Date published: 2015-08-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! My rear is bigger than my waist, which always creates the problem of how to find pants/capris/shorts that don't gap excessively at the waist, yet provides nice coverage for my back side. These capris are it! They are so incredibly comfy and there is absolutely no gap. They wash up beautifully too! Just catch them hot out of the dryer and hang up for flawless, wrinkle free pants.
Date published: 2015-08-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have one in every color They are light, easy to take care of, wear nicely without clinging. They will be perfect for my trip to Europe this fall. The only drawback is they are not great in really hot weather, but will still take them over cotton capris due to care and packability.
Date published: 2015-08-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable very comfortable and with enough stretch to wear anytime. I wear mine all the time so I got a second pair!
