Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Thinner than they look. First off, I love this pant. I wish it came in tan or a lighter color than black and charcoal. I am in Southern Utah and this is perfect for hiking out here for the Fall. I think these would be too hot for summer hiking out here even though they are lightweight (note they look like they are made of sturdier fabric in the picture). Also, these made great pants for climbing, longer to suit cooler temps, but light enough to not feel too cumbersome when climbing. November 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Feel I am a size 18-22 depending on the brand. I went with the 22 bc I have had some pants purchsed here run small. They were pretty big but super comfy. I will probably order a size smaller because I love the way they feel. November 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome pants! I purchased these pants to wear on the Trailblaze Challenge hike for Make-A-Wish. We did the big hike (28.3 miles) this past weekend and it poured rain the entire day. These pants were fabulous. They resisted the rain and kept me dry for most of the day. I was very impressed! They were also extremely comfortable even in the harsh conditions we endured. I will definitively be purchasing additional pairs and would highly recommend them. October 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these pants True to size, comfortably loose without looking sloppy. They retain their shape well. Material is lightweight but not too thin. Great for travel! August 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pants I just got the pants in yesterday and I am already in love with them! They fit a little loose, but that makes them more comfy. They are super light weight and breezy. I got them for a trip to the Amazon river in Brazil, but decided to go ahead and break them in. I'll see how they hold up after the trip, but I anticipate buying at least a few more pairs of these. June 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these pants!! These are very comfortable and very flattering; the material while light weight seems durable. They fit true to size. The only odd thing was the lack of pockets, but there is a pocket on the leg that will hold my phone so... Please continue to make these wonderful pants!! Nice to find a pair of pants that fit a plus size active gal!! June 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice pants I like these lightweight pants. They run a bit smaller than other Columbia pants or shorts but they are nice. June 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Favorites Extremely lightweight and comfortable pants perfect for camping and hiking adventures. Allows freedom of movement while keeping a nice fit. I need another pair for the office days as well! May 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super flattering and functional for plus size I have been looking a very long time for plus size pants for hiking, and I love these. I have given up on REI, and will look for columbia from now on. These pants are pretty thin, which I like because I am usually on the warm side. However, the quality is good and unless you're hiking in really rough terrain where they'll take a serious beating they will be fine. The pants are super flexible, so I have no concerns about tearing during activities. They are so comfortable and they are FLATTERING. FINALLY. May 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My "Go to" pants These pants do it all! They look great and are oh so comfortable. From driving across the country, to hiking the Grand Canyon to wearing them on an Alaskan cruise. They have been with me through it all. Even just hanging out on the weekends. These are my go to pants. I am 5'9 and wear a plus size. It's hard to find good fitting pants. They are plenty long, and after 2 years, have not shrunk. Would highly recommend them. April 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT!! I love love love these pants. They're lightweight, so not too hot (even the black), super stretchy and comfortable (not binding, even at the waist), and very practical. I was looking for something comfy like a yoga pant, but not binding like jeans can be, that I could wear out to dinner, shopping during the day, etc. We have warm weather here, so I needed something in a breathable fabric. They do run big and pretty long. The length is a bonus for me, as I have a very hard time finding pants long enough, often resorting to capris (I'm 5'10"). My only complaint is that they don't have hip pockets; there's only one zippered thigh pocket, and it's not even big enough for my phone. Would definitely recommend in spite of this. March 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Finally Pants that Fit!! Great light material - great for travel. I have trouble finding pants that fit right for 3x - with the style and the drawstring, these pants fit great and have a slim attractive look. Pants run very long. I would like to see another pocket too. March 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pants These pants are very comfortable. I will purchase more in the future. January 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nearly perfect! I love these pants and wish they came in more colors - I'd order more! Super comfy for around town or travel. I only have two complaints. They need more pockets (there's only one) and they're too long. I'm 5'4" and even with hiking boots I had to roll these up a good couple of inches. There is a drawstring "cinch" on each leg though and that helps secure them. True to size. I didn't have the problem of them stretching out as other reviewers did. I recently wore these in Bali and they were great. Easy to wash in a sink and air-dried overnight. Like I said, nearly perfect! November 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So glad I ordered these My new go-to pants! Easier breathing for yoga, wider flat waistband. I now own three pair! November 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by runs true to size but stretches out Pros: flattering shape, high-quality technical fabric, no bulky cargo pockets, good for layering (as base or outer layer), very comfortable Cons: stretch out after a few hours, inseam too short for anyone abI've 5'6, fabric tends to pill with washing (even using gentle cycle and air-drying) Bottom line: I haven't found another retailer that sells decent-looking hiking/backpacking pants in plus sizes, so I'm sticking with these despite the short inseam. This is my third pair. October 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these pants! I LOVE these pants and wear them all the time. They are so comfortable and stretchy. My only complaint is that they only come in two colors and there could be more pockets. I am usually a size 16. I ordered a size 16 and a size 18 online and they both fit great. The 16s are a more true fit for me, but with the interior drawstring, I wear the 18s all the time too. September 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Pants! These are really great, functional pants. I have worn them hiking in hot weather as a trial run for a trip to Asia where it will be very hot. Excellent breathability, great fit and really flattering as well. Super comfort and ability to move full range. August 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I loved these pants! I wore these pants over the weekend to hike in Wisconsin. I bought a size 20 even though I usually wear a size 18 and I'm glad I went one size bigger. This left the pants a little more roomy which I like when I'm hiking and there's a drawstring in the waistband so you can tighten them. The only complaint I have is I'm 5' 5" and the pants run a bit long. I was able to roll it up two or three times and it actually stayed for the whole day of hiking. Overall, great pants and I would highly recommend! June 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for travel or fun Love these pants. They are very comfortable and great for travel or for playing outdoors. I've done both with this pant. Good, secure and easy to use pockets, too! May 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love them, but too long. These pants fit beautifully and look very stylish when compared to my other "adventure" pants. My only complaint is that they were o long. I am 5'6" and had to cut off about 3"s. I don't know why the extended size cannot be made in 28 or 29 length. March 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Pants! I love these pants. They are so light and comfortable you hardly realize you have them on. I first purchased these in a capri style and I loved those so much I had to get them in the full length. They are so versatile I can wear them for every day or on long hikes. December 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very nice pant I bought these in both an 18 and 20. I kept both because they fit well. I love the drawstring at the bottom of the leg, sometimes I use it and other times I don't. One thing I noticed is they are not as straight of a leg as I wanted. Loose from the knee down. Very stretchy fabric and as one person said, they feel like you are wearing nothing. The fabric is thin but I wear long underwear while hiking so they work perfectly. I use the drawstring waist to cinch them tighter. they have a nice snap and zipper. They are a mid rise waist which is absolutely perfect for me since I hate long waisted pants but they are by no means at all low rise. December 19, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Extremely thin material I have to send these back; they were a tad too small around the thighs (material was pulling) and the material is so thin I can't imagine wearing them without the fear that they might rip. Not worth the $60+. November 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these Pants These are incredibly comfortable pants, lightweight material, very stretchy...like wearing pajamas all day, but professional enough that I can wear them instead of my scrub pants (an unintended bonus). Great for biking on a misty day, they don't feel wet at allm (not clingy when damp). If they were available in more colors, I would be ordering them... November 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Pants for Travel These pants are made from a very light, stretchy fabric that is extremely comfortable. The tailoring is excellent and the elastic waist cord works well to adjust the extra fabric at the waist I experience in most pants. October 26, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Pants fit fine but they're weird When buying Columbia pants I always add a size which was adequate for this purchase; regular length was good for 5'8.5" tall. These are weird pants. I would say more like knit warm-up pants. Alas I wanted a pair to wear to work and these definitely aren't appropriate. I kept them for winter lounging. Still looking for nice pants with pockets for work. July 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So very comfortable Bought these pants (and a pair of capris) to take on a recent trip. These pants were exceptionally comfortable for traveling. Lightweight and virtually wrinkle free. Just be aware that they run very, very large. Had to return two pairs to get one that fit. Would recommend buying two sizes smaller than your usual size. But overall, love these pants and would buy in more colors. May 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great style, good stretch, no waistband This was a great pair of stretchy, stylish pants that would go from hiking to around town and look good. I found the size 20W to be the same fit as all 20W Columbia pant styles. I also buy 20W in most other brands too. Inseam was the stated length of 32", which is not always the case. Regrettably, I had to reluctantly return these pants as I found I did not care for the no waistband style, I like to feel the clothes. Others may find that a plus. I would still recommend these pants to those who do not require the firmer feel of a true waistband. March 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Definitely comfy! I bought these pants with an upcoming late spring trip to Alaska in mind, thinking they would be lightweight for travel but also very functional. And they are! Very comfortable--and it will be easy to put a thin layer underneath them if needed. They can be cinched at the ankles, so that will be good over boots when we are out and about. And, with the right tops, they will also be good for evenings out, whatever that means where we are going! Overall, I'm very pleased with these pants though the fabric seems to hold dog hair a bit more than I'd like. January 28, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Straight leg pants I could do without the center front seam but these pants are so comfortable that i will get so much use out of them. They also look nice for all kinds of occassions so I can dress them up or wear casual ; they are nice for travel because they are light weight and easy to hand wash out. January 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Geat lightweight pant - freedom of movement I bought the Just Right II pants about 6 months ago, and wear them sailing all the time. So I thought I'd try a pair of these, so I had a backup pair. These are actually slightly more stylish, and the fabric is a bit more stretchy -- so they are more comfortable. But because they are thin, and stretchy, the windbreaking/water-resisting capability seems to be slightly less good than the Just RIght II. Glad I got them though, and will likely use them all the time when I sailing in non-foul weather conditions. September 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for packing on long trips Got these pants for an upcoming trip to Australia and New Zealand. Wanted something that would be light weight and take up little space in the suitcase. Also something that would dry quickly if I have to wash them out. We will be in hot, desert-like conditions, in cool, late fall-like conditions and at times on the water. These should be great for all of those. I liked them so well that I ordered a second pair. Only drawback is, I'm 5'5" and they are a little long, so will have to shorten them. September 16, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable Great pant, washes and wears well. October 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great urban pant. This pant has great coverage and ease of fit with give in all the right places. Water resistant in heavy rainfall while walking yet extremely light weight and packable. Not sure if the pant would hold up to sitting on rough logs or resist pitch but great for urban use or international travel. Fabric is a lighter shade of black than expected. July 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these! Beautiful pants but why are you almost out of stock? Want two pairs in different colours, you had only one pair my size. A beautiful pant in a plus size. Thank you!! Please make more styles for us plus size active women!! February 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stretchy stylish comfort These pants are fab-u-lous. Im 5'9" 200lbs and i typically wear a size 18, but i purchased a size 20. They fit very well. Not too snug or loose and the length is perfect. I thought i was going to have to hem them, but i don't. Love the drawstring waist. Lots-o stretch. They are a nice thin pant i purchased for a trip to Australia and weekend kayaking. Only (minor) downside is there is only one semi hidden pocket (zipper) on the left leg. Shipping was extremely fast and a good price. A+ to Columbia for helping us voluptuous outdoorsy gals. March 13, 2013
