Women's Insect Blocker™ Cargo Pant 3.9 5 21 21
Great travel pants I got these to wear on safari in Tanzania. Because of the reviews about sizing, I ordered them in both 4 and 6. The 4 fit perfectly everywhere except the seat, where it felt (sorry for being graphic) and looked like a wedgie. It's too bad, because otherwise I would have kept the 4. So I returned the 4 and wore the size 6, and though they were a little looser than I'd like, with a belt they did work exactly as I needed, including repelling tsetse flies and other pesky insects. They were lightweight, easy to rinse out, and dried quickly. They were perfect for a warm climate. Other than fit, there is one other negative that Columbia REALLY needs to address. The opening on the angled leg pocket, which is clearly designed to hold a passport, is barely large enough to put in and take out the passport. If it were even 1/4" wider, it would work perfectly. I love that the pocket is there and perfectly positioned, but the flaps over each end of the zipper make access too difficult. December 7, 2013
Fit Most of the reviews I read recommended a larger size because the pants fit small, so I ordered a size 10 instead of my usual 8, only to find they were a bit big through the waist and hips, but I didn't have time to reorder a smaller size. October 19, 2013
Perfect Fit Based on previous reviews I did get one size larger than I normally wear. At 5'5", 115 lds the size 6 is perfect. There is plenty of room to move comfortably. The fabric is great - light weight and not hot. I can not speak yet to the insect blocker feature. I will be trying that out on a trip to Belize...my hope in not to get "eaten alive" as I did on my last trip there. September 12, 2013
This size 10 runs small The Cargo Pant is a small size 10 so I would suggest that you buy one size larger. The quality, color and fabric all look good. August 27, 2013
No bug bites Since moving to Missouri from the Northwest, I have been eaten alive by mosquitos and other creepy crawlers. I purchased this product, received within 5 days and have worn it once in the great outdoors with NO BITES! I'm so glad I don't have to scratch. I'm pleased as punch! As far as sizing - I wear a 6 or 8 short. There were no short so I got a regular length. Since the pants have adjustable elastic at the ankle, length was not an issue. I've washed them once and they came out of the dryer almost wrinkle free. August 27, 2013
Effective and lightweight! These pants are effective mosquito barriers and are nice and comfortably lightweight for hot weather wear. If they only came in petite size they'd be perfect! August 23, 2013
Repellant Pants These pants may have thwarted some mosquitos but did not stop some of them from biting me on the back of the thighs. There may be a flaw or defect in this area of the pants. They are very comfy, I ordered up a size and am glad I did. The material is nice, there isn't any weird smell, and if I didn't tell people they were "different", no one would know. August 21, 2013
very light It´s my second pant, it´s very light to carry on the lugagge. Could exist in more bright colors. August 15, 2013
Nice Pants Product fits and wears well. This product runs small especially around the hips. July 27, 2013
Light, comfortable, but run alittle small They seemed to keep the bugs away. When they got wet in the rain forest they dried quickly. My only gripe is that the waist runs a little small so size up. July 22, 2013
Pant worked so well i've ordered a shirt too This has been one of the worst bug years I can remember in Alaska so I needed some heavy duty defense. These pants seemed to do just the trick. Consistent with Columbia sizing and my bottom half has stayed bite free so far. July 6, 2013
pants it is low rise. Use for working in the yard, with lots of bending, not comfortable They do repel chiggars June 28, 2013
Great pant! Great pant - love the style, material, and color. The fit is great except it's maybe a half-inch tighter than I'd like around the waist. Everywhere else it fits perfectly. I'm 5'5", about 115 pounds, and I have the size 2. Remains to be seen if it really repels mosquitoes... just got them in the mail last week in building my arsenal against the bloodsucking monsters! (I am terribly, terribly allergic) June 16, 2013
Beware the skinny leg When another reviewer said this was not good for curvy girls I didn't think that would be an issue for me. At 5'4" 105lbs nobody has ever used the word curvy to describe me. My waist is smaller than my hips and butt and the pants fit well there, the problem is the thighs. You can't do a skinny leg cut when the fabric used has zero stretch. The "cargo" pockets don't help either since they are interior leg pockets rather than patches on the outside, so you really can't fit anything in them. They didn't pass the sit test and had to go back, sadly. The insect blocker jacket is great though. June 4, 2013
Good pant but narrow legs aren't ideal The pants are a good fit (next size up would fall off me) and look fine. However, given that the current style for women these days is the narrow leg, it unfortunately makes for a tight fit around the thigh which is particularly noticeable while climbing. Also, although there are plenty of pockets, putting much of anything in them impacts the tightness around the thigh. But they were quite comfortable in general hiking through the woods and easily tucked into my socks. The quality seems good, but I've only had them a few days. May 1, 2013
No bugs on me!!! First trip out with the pants. We went deep into Alaska bear country. As many of you know Alaska's state bird is the mosquito! And not a single bug bit on me!!! I love the draw string at the bottom of the leg nothing is crawling up there. Nice little side pocket perfect size for GPS. As for the fit I wear an 8 I bought an 8 and the fit is snug in the thighs but in my waist they fit perfect. I will be getting another pair! August 12, 2012
not for women with a waistline and leg muscles I'm an athletic 118 pounds and have problems finding pants that fit because the waist is usually too big. These have the typical problem of being too tight in the legs with a gaping waistband. So, if you're a curvy woman with a small waist look elsewhere. The quality is good, though. August 11, 2012
Lightweight, comfortable, sturdy, wonder about the chemicals... These pants are great, they are light, comfortable and sturdy at the same time. I use them to work in the woods, clearing trails, and they're perfect. The pockets are very handy. They also definitely keep the ticks off, which is a relief. Since I have been wearing them I have had no ticks even walking on me, while others around me have. On top (shirt, etc) I wear just regular (untreated) clothes with natural insect spray. I wish that Columbia had included more information about the chemicals (Permathrin) in the pants, though; do I need to wash my hands after I touch them? Does the chemical come off in the wash and get into the septic tank and the streams? June 28, 2012
Love the fabric and the protection Well made pants. Insect repellent works great and the fabric is light weight enough to be comfortable in the summer. Wish these were available in a petite length. They cannot be shortened without losing the drawstring feature at the hem. I can wear them for walking in the woods/countryside and that's what I bought them for, but would have been a bonus if the length was right and I could use them as "anytime" pants. June 8, 2012
LOVE THESE! These pants are fantastic. I had the Insect Blocker pants from different company, but these are MUCH better. I love the narrow legs, and there is even an elastic and toggle at the bottom to cinch further to keep the bugs out. I am a mosquito magnet and these will be perfect. They are very thin and comfortable - just enough stretch in the waist to be comfy without looking like 80's pants and should keep me cool in summer. I haven't tested the insect repellent qualities yet, but I have used other insect shield products and they are great. Very flattering and comfy! I was impressed. April 10, 2012
Legs are too tapered at the ankle The legs are too tapered at the ankle, making it difficult to fit over shoes or hiking boots. I ordered other pants in a different style and plan to keep those. February 9, 2012
