Rated 5 out of 5 by Versatile Pants I purchased these pants in black and tusk (tan), after previously purchasing a pair in grey. They are extremely versatile; I can wear them camping and hiking, or I can dress them up with a nice pair of flats and a pretty top and wear them out into the world to do my shopping, go to work, etc. They roll and pack up nicely, and hanging them in the bathroom while I shower, any wrinkles fall out; so again, perfect for traveling or for those less inclined to being a slave to the iron. I have a black pair of the slim leg version of this pant as well, and they are just as comfortable. However, I do not have skinny thighs, and the wider leg pants just fit and look nicer on me in my opinion. I do not find them to be too wide in the leg as some claim; however, I also prefer a straight leg pant over a slim legged, and that is how these fit. I am 5'4" and weigh about 125, and these in the size 4 were perfect after I had them hemmed (which I tend to have to do to many brands of pants). They are a lightweight, water-shedding material, and I am perfectly okay with that. I find many of Columbia's pants are tight across my booty and gap a bit at the waist; however, these are not. I think the material and the cut make them perfect for a girl with more of a hour-glass figure then a stick figure, which is a plus for me. But this is why I rated them as running a bit larger then normal. So if you normally wear a size 6 in Columbia due to the booty/waist issue I mentioned above, you should be okay with the 4. I HIGHLY recommend you try these pants. I rarely say that about a pair of pants. November 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal pant for my sport Love this pant because we compete in dog agility and it's for all seasons. The weight of the pant is just right - not too heavy, not too light, doesn't soak up moisture, dries quickly. It allows one to run unrestricted, and there are plenty of pockets for treats, poo bags, etc. November 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Favorite Pants I love these pants so much that I bought a second pair, after wearing my first pair for the first time. They're comfy and functional. However, they're also dressy enough for wear into my office (business casual) and incredibly slimming. Simply fantastic pants. November 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfy These pants are light and comfy but still do what they need to do. I was wearing them in the wind and rain and did not feel cold and the water beading off them. By no means am I saying they are rain pants but for what I was doing, going in and out of the rain, they kept me dry. I will definitely be getting another pair. November 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I expected The pants are comfortable, lightweight, and stylish. They have just the right amount of 'give' for hiking and climbing. And I love that the short length isn't too short. October 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Extra long, huge pants I own the Women's "Outdoor Anytime" Columbia shorts and capris pants, and I love them so much I decided to purchase these pants for the upcoming cooler weather. Big mistake. I am 5'8" tall, yet the "regular" length pants were 5" - 6" too long for me. Also, there is absolutely no taper to the pants which, in combination with the excess length, makes these pants way too big. Too bad, because I really wanted to love them. October 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just love these pants I wanted a pant that would hike, do yoga, sit and travel with me. These are perfect. The material is so light but does not cling at all so the straight, no contours look is maintained. I had to take quite a hem in the regular length and I am 5'4". Bought two pair! September 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great fabric, light weight and comfortable. I like the garment however the legs are way too wide. Columbia's description "full leg" means what it says and should not be interpreted as "long leg." I had to have them altered so that they won't billow in a slight breeze! September 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pants! very comfy, all-weather, very light material, you will love it! September 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by S/B called Anytime EVERYWHERE Pant!! I purchased three pair of these two years ago for a hiking trip. Because they look nice, fit well and are super comfortable, i quickly found them to be my 'go-to' pants. They are wonderful for travel days since they have a little 'give' and spills tend to roll off them. They're also great to wear daily at home and away for shopping, sight-seeing and are still nice enough to wear out to dinner. I have multiple pairs in every color. The only downside is the fabric pills a little and needs an occasional shave. This isn't even bad enough to lower my assessment of quality! I think these are great pants and just purchased four new pairs!! August 18, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by For my body, it was to much fabric I had read reviews about wider pant legs, but did not realize how wide they were till I put them on. It was to much for me. Also, I had ordered the petite (short) but they were too long. If I had kept them, I would have had to hem them. I love Columbia, but these had to go back they were not meant for me. July 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outdoor full size leg pants excellent purchase the most comfortable pant I own! July 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The absolute best pants...ever I now own 4 pairs of the pants, 2 long shorts and 2 capri. They are stretchy, have a great fit and really are stain resistent. Perfect for work, life and the ultimate road trip pants for comfort and ease. July 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by my second review ever I bought these based on the reviews and how much I like the "just right straight leg pants" I don't know which I like better. The strait leg pant is slimmer and more streamlined, i.e.. no pockets to speak of. These have pockets and have fuller legs. Both pants are great. I hope they wear well. July 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product These pants fit and look great. They ride a little below the waist but very comfortable. I usually wear a size ten in jeans and that was perfect for these pants also. Will certainly consider buying more. June 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Pants! I already have a pair of these in black and I wear them all the time. I originally bought them to hike in but they are great for so much more than that. You can dress these up or down, wear them out to dinner, shopping, whatever. You will be comfortable and look neat. The fabric has some give and wrinkles just a bit. But they are so lightweight which is perfect out here in the desert Southwest. I do not have an athletic build and they have the right amount of room in the hips. Wish they had more colors! June 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the extra room in the legs I work outside for about 4 hours a day and the summer temperature can easily reach 100 degrees. These pants keep me cooler than others and they dry quickly. June 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite hiking pants These are my very favorite hiking pants. They material is lightweight, a bit stretchy, and super comfortable. The drawstring waist is a nice feature, but I usually take the tie out because I don't need it and prefer not to have the bump from tying it. I ordered my regular size as well as a size up and decided to keep the larger one. Both fit well, but my usual size was a bit tighter in the butt & thighs than I was looking for. Overall, love these pants and am considering purchasing a second pair. June 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Pants Very nice pants, ordered another pair in a different color since I liked them so much. June 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost perfect They are comfortable, easy to take care of, look nice enough to wear to work. I would really love it if they offered different lengths. I'm tall and these are just a smidge shorter than I would like. But I will definitely order more. May 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Warm Weather Pants I Own I thought the Just Right Line was my favorite once I adjusted for the sizing. These pants win hands down. I wear my normal size. The waist has a lot of give, but the ties are there for those who need them. The pants are not tight, which I love. The pockets, fit and length are perfect. The styling is appropriate for so many uses. I am buying 3 more pair because when I finally find something I really like, they usually discontinue it. These pants don't stretch out permanently like the just right pants did. May 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by surprised! I have been trying to find a regular, plain pair of pants for walking in the woods. I don't want baggy pants that weigh you down. I don't want the cargo pockets that accentuate big thighs. I just wanted a simple line. Not too big, not too tight. Wahoo! These just got put on my size 14 older adult body and they fit! I'm ready to wear right now! I have tried on so many pants lately that are way too tight or way too baggy with pockets all over the place, etc. these are really nice. I'd like to say the regular length is way too long so I will have to get them hemmed. I'm 5'8" and they are several inches too long. I don't want them dragging in the morning dew or in rain puddles. But I like the fit so much that I will get my son in law to hem them for me! I'd like more dark colors for the woods and maybe sneak them into the work place! April 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect day hike I've been searching for the perfect pants for a woman with curves....these pants are perfect! April 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE! I am short (5'4# and pear-shaped #145lbs# with fuller thighs and rear. I bought a size 10 in the short length and they are awesome. I actually found them in a local department store #Belk's)and was able to try on different sizes. The boot cut version was nice too but a little snug in the thigh. The ones I bought are black, I tried the khaki colored but they are not as flattering on the rear (tend to show cellulite and panty line). April 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these Pants Very flattering and comfortable. Good for slightly dressy to working out at the gym. I use them for my walking. Great for when I travel very light. Any wrinkles seem to disappear with wearing them. Bought my first pair 2 months ago and have now bought 4 in all of the colors. I love the length. Hangs perfect for my 5'4". My true Go To pants for this season! March 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I wanted Reference: 5'10" 140lbs usually size 6. I was looking for a pant to wear for my spring break trip to Smith Rocks, the Redwoods and up the OR coast, and these pants were exactly the right find. I originally ordered the Silver Ridge pant from Columbia in a 6, but they were pretty tight aross the butt and thighs and too short for me. Length is a common problem for me, I'm 5'10" and need about a 38" inseam to really be comfortable. I then ordered these in an 8 and was very hapy with the turnout. The Anytime pants were plenty long enough for me though, a huge plus! They also have a nice amoun of stretch to them but are still sturdy, and have lots of room for leggings/long johns underneath them. The drawstring waist is also a huge plus. I wore them walking/hiking, climbing and just day to day and they performed exceptionally. They dry super fast and are light enough for pretty warm temps but warm enough for chilly days too. overall super happy with them! March 15, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by This product has some decent features The size is a lot bigger than my expectation. I like this product because it has pockets. February 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Lightweight and very comfortable. January 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fit Great fit! I'm a curvy girl and it's hard to find active pants for hiking and other activities that fit nicely. These not only fit perfect, but they look great too! Love these so much, I immediately ordered another pair. December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable pants I love these pants. They are soft and comfortable but run just a tiny bit too large. I'm keeping them since the drawstring waist will allow me to make them fit a little better. Can't wait to wear them in New Zealand. November 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alaskan Molly Love these pants. They are my go to pants now. I can wear them from the boardroom to the fishing deck. They look professional when needed but offer the comfort of pants you want to wear. THANKS. The size 16 is a little loose, but a good length for a 5'!0, 195lb woman. November 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by super comfy Love the pants. Had a black pair I bought for hiking in Canadian Rockies. Even though very breathable, kept me warm. Great for traveling, and quick drying. October 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pants As a soccer mom, I'm out on the field come rain or shine and these are my go to pants when the weather is iffy. I have fuller thighs and the bootcuts were tight but these fit just right and have a little give. October 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pants These are great ! They fit so well and well made. September 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Columbia pants I recently ordered a pair of anytime outdoor pants, just right pants, and global adventure pants. Of the three, I decided to keep the anytime outdoor pair due to comfort, styling, and fit. I am 5'6", 130 lbs, and normally take a size 8 in almost any brand. The 8 was a perfect fit for me in these pants. Because I liked these so much, I ordered the crop pants version, which didn't work for me--the 8 was snug and the 10 was big. I will have to try another style. June 11, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Waist too low and too large and pants too short I really wanted to like these hiking pants because the quality is very good. That said; the waist was much too low and too big. I tried a smaller size, but both were still too low and big and then the leg became tighter so I couldn't keep them. I should also mention that Columbia needs to start making pants with a minimum 33" inseam similar to Not Your Daughter's Jeans. 32" doesn't cut it with many women who are getting taller, not smaller with each passing generation! One can always shorten pants, but not lengthen them if you're tall. At the very least, provide a hem that can be taken down several inches. Finally, make pants that hit right below the belly button for the most comfort. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Women's anytime outdoor full leg pant I love the weight, comfort of these pants. They dry quickly and roll up compact in luggage. Good for hiking on well groomed trails. I'd not wear them on trails that have brush, bushes rubbing your legs as these pants would snag, get caught up. I am 5'4 and the short length is just the right length for me. I also have the same pant in a boot cut which is nice but I prefer the full leg when engaged in lots of activity, movement. March 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great anytime pants These pants are great, very comfortable and can be worn anywhere! March 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features I already had two pairs of these pants (one gray, one black). I love them so much I both two more pairs, again one gray and one black, so that I could have a set at my home in Buffalo, NY and my vacation place in Florida. I'm always a happy camper with my Columbia clothing. March 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better then sweats and can wear in public I've worn Just Right pant but they have been running out of stock. The Columbia rep recommended these pants as an alternative so I ordered them. The rep was excellent at telling me to order a size smaller and I'm glad I did. If too large they'd hang funny, if too small they'd be a bit too revealing, these fit perfectly. They are tailored to look like pants but the fabric and cut feels like a comfortable pair of sweat pants. Nice to find pants that are comfortable and fashionable without being bound by waistbands or seams. I highly recommend these pants, so much so I've ordered all the colors and 2 pairs of black. March 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Never thought I would like a pair of pants better then jeans but I do now. I have a pair in size 4 and now a size 2 with the draw string the 4 still ware able .. February 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Anything and everything I ordered up sizes to allow room for leggings for outdoor activities. I'll be ordering more as these pants can be worn just about anywhere for any activity. Very comfortable, stylish and functional January 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable pants Like the fit and they came in "short" length. December 2, 2013
