Comfy and warm
I now have these pants in black and grey. They are my go to pants for a cold day. They really do keep the winter winds at bay.

Disapointed I can not exchange
I bought these pants with the $30 gift. They do not fit well. I asked at the pdx airport store if I could exchange and they said no the $30 gift is a one time use. This is not good customer service. The pants are warm and fuzzy but much too low cut in the front and they are not straight leg but flared at the bottom Thank you, Julie Slater

Waist is too low on pants
I returned the pants. In the field, xc or snow shoeing, these pants allow your lower back and rear to show. I do not want that kind of air conditioning, thank you! The pants are NOT ok for movement maybe they are for fashionistas. I am always for movement first, fashion second. I am wearing these pants to work out not walk down Park Avenue!
I am looking for a pair of good fleece pants with normal waists. You used to make these pants and I can't understand why you don't now. The former version I used were perfect for high intensity workouts in the snow - your booty never was caught out in the cold in that version. So, you lost the sale on this round. Maybe you might offer us pairs with normal waists and then you will have a sale.
Also, my mark for function was Poor even though the survey wouldn't acknowledge the choice.

Global Adventure Pant
These pants are comfortable enough to wear everyday and nice enough to wear out. The only problem is that it attracts lint, hair, and everything else like crazy so I'm constantly brushing stuff off of it. They're still the most comfortable pants I've bought in years and I ordered them in black as well.

The sweats are very dense and feel very well constructed. The length was long on me because they come in only one length. It would have been nice to have a Petite option. The elastic waist feels as though it could be a tad tighter. Overall, I really like the density of the pants. I expect them to fair me well during cold winter months.

a bit large
The pants are very cozy, soft and warm, which is what I wanted in them. I like the way they are styled, unfortunately, I don't have the hips to fill them out well :/ But this is not unusual. Overall, they are a great addition to my winter wardrobe!

Too long and heavy
I have a pair of Columbia vortex fleece pants that are years old and so worn I was starting to feel like a slob wearing them; But, did not care because I loved them so. However, it was time to stock up and after trying to find a replacement in various stores I found what I thought was a similar pair at Columbia. I ordered two pair, they were delivered and I tried them on. Comfy?definitely.. but they dragged on the floor and the weight of the fleece was a bit too 'fluffy'. I'm 5'5" and I ordered the regular in small but they were at least 3inches too long. I also loved the straight leg and light weight fleece of the Vortex style. Sadly, the fleece added bulk where most women don't want it. Bring back the light weight fleece for added warmth and better fit!

Warm and comfy
I got these to keep warm around the house in the winter. They are incredibly comfortable and seem to be very well made. I had seen a review saying they ran large so as a size 6 I got the SMALL size and they fit perfectly.

nice attention to detail
These pants were purchased as a gift so I can't comment on fit or funtion. But the quality is exceptional. Soft fabric which appears to be substantial. The waist is lined with a silky faric which looks super comfortable. Two nice zipper pockets that lie flat and don't eppear bulky.

Great pants but too big
These pants seemed so nice. They were very comfortable and felt like they would keep me warm during the winters here in Montana but I had to send them back because they were too big. I'm 5'3 and 100lbs and the XS was rather large on me. I was very upset to have to return them.
