Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Lightweight! Based on other reviews, I bought these pants in size 8 instead of my usual size 6. The waist is a little snug, while the hips and thighs are a little big. They still look nice though! I love the extremely lightweight material, which is windbreaker-like, but very soft with no swishing sound. Perfect for travel because they fold really small and do not retain wrinkles. They are a little long for me, but simple to take up because of the thin material. I would definitely recommend these for travel and casual days. With a dressy top, they would even look fine for going out at night. August 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adjustable Pant for Women Overall, I like this pant very much. I am 5'11", so regular was a bit shorter than I like, but it didn't come in tall. I generally wear a size 4, but purchased a size 6 based on comments on the site. These pants do run smaller than most other manufacturers. And although I am thin by most people's standards, my legs are not super thin, so the leg in this pant is not as generous as other Columbia pants I own, however, it supposed to be a straight pant. Though I bought them for hiking, I could easily be comfortable out and about in these. Happy shopping! :-) August 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to Alter I am normally a size 0, so these pants were a bit baggy in the rear, but it was easy to modify the side seams to achieve the perfect fit I wanted. April 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very slimming! I love this pant - the only reason I am giving it a 4/5 is because it might need to be pressed before worn. I washed the pant, hung to dry, and a few wrinkles were still visible. However, I love the material, and it is very slimming and complimenting to the figure. Loving Columbia pants in this material. Will be purchasing more in different colors. February 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Global Adjustable Pant Excellent for travelling...easy to wear, wash and withstand all activities without wrinkling! I purchases a brown pair and liked them so much I ordered a pair in Black. January 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing pants Have you ever wished that someone made women's hiking pants that were made for women, not just men's pants that have been adapted for women? Columbia did just that. They are great fitting, stretchy, WOMENS hiking pants. They still allow for the same maneuverability of your old favorite pair of hiking pants, but with a fit that flatters your figure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight, fitted. These puppies are a little snug in the buns, but hey, that's not always a bad thing. They're a sort of swishy, lightweight material with the look of a more professional pant but a totally casual, comfortable feel. I ordered them in Kettle and they were more of a light khaki than what I was expecting. I love how on so many of Columbia's pants and shorts the waist band comes up a little higher than is common these days, but it tapers just so to hug your curves, stay put and not gap. These definitely delivered on that front (or back, I should say) There's something about the way these are designed that when you roll them up the cuff lays perfectly flat, it's not bulky or awkward like you might expect when rolling up a boot cut like this. It makes them very easy to wear under tall boots. I like that the buttons are hidden, it's totally unnecessary, but it's fun and gives them a slightly more polished look for the workplace. I work in a shoe store and got shoe polish on these (on that pale khaki color, eep!) but it came right off, and when I scrubbed it up the water dried very quickly. I like em! I foresee myself getting a lot of use out of these and probably ordering the Mineshaft and/or Mountain colors. November 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect pant! Love these! I have them in 3 colors now. I usually wear an 8 but have to get a 10 in these. They look nice and are fabulously comfortable! October 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product appearance Finally, a beautifully tailored casual pant that unpacks without a single wrinkle and can be dressed up to qualify as "smart casual'. I've already ordered another pair. September 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by these are great travel pants I have a pair in kettle and just bought a second pair in black. They are soft, very light weight and comfortable. They pack in little space and look very presentable. I can roll them up for active sightseeing and wear them long with a dressy top for evening. August 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Functional and Stylish I love these pants so much I have ordered them in all four colours. They are so light weight, therefore perfect for summer and summer travelling. They don't crease and always look good. I wear mine around town mostly, as they are very stylish and fit well. I would normally fit a size 4 but these pants run to a slightly smaller size, so a size 6 fits best for me. August 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adjustable pant It looks dressy enough when the legs are rolled down to go anywhere. Yet, on hot days, they can be fastened up. The buttons are hidden - nice - but, that makes them a bit more difficult to access, and it isn't really necessary to tuck them away. June 23, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by I am going back to nylon and elastane. I bought a pair of columbia ''Titanium'' pants 10 years ago, and they have lasted in good condition to this day. I returned the Global adventure pants because the length adjustment feature is not user friendly , and the fabric is not crisp enough to roll up neatly. It has been my experience that polyester does not breath in hot weather. I also returned some columbia anytime pants because they were too big, and I don't like drawstring waists. But I plan to re-order them in sz. 8 because I would rather accept a drawstring waist than polyester. May 8, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by taichijo Although I like the fabric, I am returning these pants. They run very small, and I'm not sure that the larger size would fit. Size 14 regular nearly always works for me at Columbia, and I ordered 2 other pairs of pants in L that worked great. But these could be more than a full size too small. I won't risk ordering the 16.
