Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 57 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. December 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great capris! I love these capris. This is my 5th pair. So light, great fit, and easy to wear. November 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable very comfortable and with enough stretch to wear anytime. I wear mine all the time so I got a second pair! August 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Great pant. Fabric is very stretchy yet garment keeps it shape. Light weight and cool. Purchased several pairs of capris and long shorts. July 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for traveling These capris are great! They fit nicely and are so comfortable. Great for traveling because they don't take up a lot of space and they dry fast July 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most comfortable Capri These capri's are the most comfortable capri I've worn. I find them quite flattering, and the material moves with you...not against you. I bought one pair and decided to buy 2 more. They keep you cool in the hotter weather. Great for hiking or going to the grocery store. They're a versatile pant. June 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very, very nice casual capro I really like the stretch in these pants...wanted the grey but they were sold out in my size...I ordered a size up, but they were too big for me so the 12 size should fit like a glove...they do run small...I usually were a a 10. I like the higher rise pants, so I hope the smaller size wont be too low, as these pants are not a real high rise. June 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Capris for hiking, working out or lounging. I love these capris. I have worn them hiking, to the gym and just hanging out. I toiled over the size to order, so I will give my information in an attempt to help others order the right fit. I am 5'3", 130 pounds. I am fuller in the hips and normally wear a size 28 in designer jeans. I ordered a size 6 in these pants. They fit perfect. Maybe a bit snug initially, but they give just a bit after wearing for the perfect fit. I also bought the bootleg pants in same size...love them too! Can't say enough great things about these pants. June 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fit wonderful good price for plus size person True to size. Fit plus size person with wide hips, do not ride up, great protection for the hot sun. June 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great capris These are really comfortable. They work well with your outdoor activities, but are nice enough to pair with a cute top to go to dinner. Because of previous reviews, I did order one size up and was glad that I did. They run a bit small. June 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by No complaints Great fit, super comfortable. The green is a nice color. Surprisingly breathable and cool in our wicked humidity. June 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fit Great These pants fit across the bottom and hips without gapping at the waist. The only reason that I didn't give them a higher rating for function is that there is a drawstring at the waist that seems to be purely decorative since they have a snap closure. I wore them (in black) to a casual cocktail party last night with platforms and a linen shirt. Although, my intent for the purchasing was for outdoor activities. 5'7'' 145lb June 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by runs small I've ordered 2 other styles of pants from Columbia and the 12 fit perfectly in both of those styles. But these capris are too small. Sending back for larger size. But I really love Columbia clothing and am sure I'll be happy with the larger size. I'm 5'10" and weigh 155. June 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these Capris!! I bought a pair last year and loved them so much I thought I'd see if they were still available. I found an item number on a tag inside and ordered 2 more pairs. They are a slightly different material but STILL LOVE THEM. They have some stretch, they look great on, and they keep me cool on hot summer days. I'm actually going to be ordering two more pairs. May 31, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice capri's These do run small. I have the same style in the long pants and the med. fits a little big. I returned the capris. I do like the style and fabric as they hold up well without showing wear. I'm 5'5'' and 130 lbs. May 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is so comfortable! I was looking for a good fit and comfort. This far exceeded my expectations. You hardly know you have anything on. May 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great in the Galapagos I took two pairs of these to the Galápagos Islands and they were great. They held up well to hiking and sea kayaking. They washed out in the sink and dried quickly and still looked stylish. The draw string helped keep them in place. I'm 195 and 5'7". May 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Perfect Capri Pants As with all the Everyday Outdoor™ line, these capris are the perfect casual pant for everything from hiking to getting groceries. They're very lightweight and wash beautifully. I bought a pair in black and loved them so much I bought another in tusk. May 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love These Capris Love the fit of these capris! Very comfortable and they've become my daily go to pant - in almost every color offered. Good bye old faded jean capris and hello Columbia! May 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE I love these capris & bought several pairs. They look and fit great. Make me feel like I've lost 10 lbs. Great for long walks -- change top & shoes and have worn out to dinner. April 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by capri Great all purpose Capri. Comfort and light weight. April 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by just what I was looking for I'm very happy with these capris. I bought them for walking the dog, running errands, and so forth. They are lightweight, have some stretch, and look casual but nicely pulled together when paired with a cute top or hoodie. They are serving the purpose I needed them to serve. April 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice product I am very happy with these pants. I wear them a lot. Very comfortable and easy to maintain. April 9, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great if you like wide legs The pants were great except for the width of the legs at the calf. It would have been nicer if they were a bit tapered April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by anytime capri pants I now have five pairs of these capri pants: two black, gray, steel blue, and tan. I love them for many reasons. They are SO comfortable, are stretchy for exercising, bike riding, and I enjoy wearing them. They wash up nicely (no ironing) and dry quickly. They are just the right length too. If you're considering buying a pair, do it because you will LOVE wearing them!! March 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Anytime Very good quality, easy care when travelling or camping, comfortable wear with easy on/off. The long pant is also equally as high quality and comfort. Great buy! January 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pants! These pants are really great; true to size, and very comfortable. Highly recommended! December 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice pants that run small I bought the full leg anytime pants and the global adventure pants in an 8 and loved the fit, style, and fabric of both. I decided to try the anytime capris and found the 8 too small. I may reorder in a 10 since I like the pants so much. This is my biggest gripe in ordering online--the inconsistency in sizing in the same style. May 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect pants! These pants are amazing! They are so comfortable due to the lightweight material and stretchy fabric. They are dressy enough to wear to work but are also great for travel. I took these pants on an 11 day trip to Cambodia. I hiked all day in 90 degree temperatures and these pants kept me cool. I was able to wash them out in the sink at night to wear again the next day. Definitely recommend and about to buy more for an upcoming trip to Glacier. May 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy travel capris Recently spent 3 days hiking and on the beach with these capris. Cool, comfortable and clean-looking. A little casual for shopping at the mall but if you're going to be outdoors, they are great! March 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great caparis! I love these capris. They arrived at my house in a timely manner and fit great! Can't wait for the warmer weather to come so I can wear them!! March 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect summer pants These are perfect summer pants I love the feel and the comfort of them. I can wear them to the park I can wear them to the movies I wear them to the grocery store I recommend these pants they are very cute. March 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome capris! I wore these for a hike in Zion and then hanging around Springdale. I also wore them to work for a casual look on a Friday. They are so comfortable for just hanging out and for hiking! I got them for traveling as the material doesn't wrinkle and wicks water. I should've got one size smaller as there is some stretch once worn, but the drawstring helps hold them up towards the end of the day or the second day. March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Outdoor Capris I purchased these capris and the pants and also the shorts and absolutely love them. They fit great and are so very comfortable. They are great for hanging out in and great for travel. A nice casual look. I bought my normal size and they run just a little bit big but not so big you need a smaller size. Very comfortable! March 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great mateterial, great fit. Awesome lightweight capri, feels great, no wrinkles, looks great, too. March 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Big foot's wife My new camping favorite. Like the feel of the material and fit, very comfy February 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by love these capris comfortable good length January 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Capris! I already own the black capris and these are just as great. The Boulder color is a medium gray, not too light, but not too dark either. Very versatile color. I love the fabric - lightweight, dries easily and very comfortable. I chose "runs a little large" because I although think Columbia clothing normally runs a little small, I am a typical pear shape and I wear size 12 in other brands but size 14 in Columbia. The size 12 fit great with the drawstring waist without it being too big in the waist. December 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous Pants! I purchased the long shorts and loved them so much I went looking for longer pants for more coverage and protection from the sun. These capris are just like the long shorts in material, fit, color, but come below the knee. They are a medium gray and match my shoes and blend with practically any top I wear. The material is the best part because the stretch make them so comfortable and forgiving if you gain or lose a few pounds! I walk in Florida in 85 degree temps with high humidity, but somehow do not feel hot! I wash them in the sink each day when I return from walking so they are ready for the next day, or the day after if I switch them with the shorts. They dry quickly and do not wrinkle. These pants would be great for travel. I even bought the longer boot cut so I'm ready for cooler weather or travel up north. I find the fit the same in those too. Absolutely wonderful pants! October 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fabric and fit I would highly recommend this product for individuals who like to exercise in a comfortable and attractive pair of Capri pants. Fabric is easy to launder by hand when travelling, does not wrinkle and looks great after hand washing. I plan on purchasing another pair in the near future. October 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best traveling pants!!! These capris are exactly what I was looking for for traveling. They are lightweight, take no room in the suit case and can be easily/quickly washed and dried. The perfect traveling companion..... September 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy care, neutral colors, travels well Well made from very light weight, fast-drying fabric, these capris are styled to wear casually or with a nice top and shoes out to dinner. Packs down to nothing, machine or hand wash and hang dry in an hour outdoors or overnight in a hotel bathroom. Stretchy, good for sports or travel or everyday. Have them in both colors and bought the shorts as well. September 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for travel Bought these for a trip...need to pack light. Have worn them several times and am pleased with fit. September 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Nice Only wore them once...but so far...love them! Very comfy and flattering. Don't seem to stretch too much...so hopefully no sagging in the rear. Very nice quality. Sit just below the knee...I am 5'9" September 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by They've got the "Bling Factor"! The Women's Anytime Outdoor™ Capri is well made, extremely comfortable and looks as good at the end of the day as when you first put them on in the morning. A+ on quality. Yes I'll be ordering another pair. August 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Cool Capris These capris are great. I live in South Mississippi and they are cool and comfortable in the heat. I wear them to practice tennis in or to walk or ride bikes. They are comfortable and lightweight. I've washed them a couple of times and they are holding up well so far. July 12, 2013
