Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pant Dear Columbia, I would buy 100 more pair of these pants if you made them in navy blue too. Please make them in blue!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel pant I purchased these pants for a trip to Australia and was not disappointed! The fit was true, they were very comfortable, easy to wash and very quick drying - perfect for travel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not exactly what I expected I was excited to see another option for a long pant besides the boot cut pant. And the reviews were quite positive, saying you can dress the pant up if you want. Having gotten the pant, there are a few things I wish I would have known before I bought them. One is there is a zipper on the thigh of one of the legs. I don't remember seeing anything about that in the description. I got these mainly for being able to wear in the evening on cruises or while traveling, to pair with a nice blouse and jewelry for a dressier look. The zipper on the leg is not so great for me because it takes away from the dressier look. Also, the bottom hem of the pant has an elastic band in it. I was really surprised to see that! What the heck is that for? I certainly don't remember reading anything about that in the description. The fit is good, and I am glad to be rid of that annoying velcro back pocket on the boot cut pant which never stayed velcroed nicedly together. They will be okay but I wish the hem was normal and the zipper pocket was gone. I am going to look again at the description of the pant to see if there is any mention of those two things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and comfortable for everyday or travel. Bought the black pair and liked it so much I went back and purchased the grey ones. Would be perfect if they had one normal pocket around the waist instead of the zipped pocket on the leg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, functional and attractive I have purchased five pairs of these pants. They fit great and the light weight is perfect for active days--whether on the trail or just around town. The drawstring waist provides the added benefit of keeping the pants snug if you lose weight. I have short legs so wish they were a little shorter, but otherwise, no complaints!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants I have several pairs of these wonderful pants! They are an integral part of my work wardrobe but can easily be worn on the weekend for a variety of activities. My only wish would be for a Navy pair and then my collection would be complete. Did I mention that they wash and dry very quickly so are great for travelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants, wish there were pockets! I bought these because I've been a huge fan of the boot cut variety, and thought this would be a slimmer profile. The drawstring is on the inside of the waistband, which is a definite improvement. THe pants look and feel and fit GREAT. But they don't have pockets. No back pocket. No front pockets. Just a slightly awkwardly placed pocket on my left thigh above the knee, so no place to put a phone, keys or lip balm (the three things I always keep in my pockets!) Otherwise, I love them. I just wish they had pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable pant I bought these for a hiking trip and couldn't believe how comfortable they are so I ended up buying another pair. I am hard to fit with wide hips and smaller waist so love the drawstring in addition to button for an better fit. I was worried they would be too tight in my legs but they stretch just enough to give some slack. These pants are so incredibly comfortable to hike in. They move and stretch with you. If hiking in cold temperatures I had enough room for a base layer if needed since they are rather thin but kept me warm enough in 50 degree weather. These are a great lounge pant too. Love them and highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy pants Just the right amount of stretch. Loved them so much I ordered a second pair. Superior to the zip off leg pants that rubbed my thighs when I walked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-to for all things! Love these comfortable yet sleek pants. There is a stretchy give for hiking and other active pursuits, but the pants don't bag or sag out. I wear them with nicer tops for work, and can even layer tights under them for outdoor use. All around winners!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing pants for curvy girl traveler I bought these pants and the Anytime Outdoor Boot Cut pant for a summer trip to England. I loved both but these were a phenomenal fit -- I couldn't believe that they were small enough at waist but still fit me at hip and thighs (a miracle!) I felt like I always looked "put together" and I was able to dress these up on the few times that we were at a "nice" restaurant. They also washed and dried quickly and easily -- a huge help since we were traveling light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best casual pants ever! Just Right Pants arrived just before I left for England for two weeks of walking in the Cotswolds. They were fantastic! Quick hand wash & dry and ready for the trail the next day. Nice looking and I could pair it with a classy top for going out to dinner. I'm back at the Columbia website to buy two more pair!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Women's Just Right straight Leg Pants I literally live in a pair of these year round. They are comfortable, stretchy enough to be comfortable when sitting or bending over, and have taken the place of my jeans, linen or cotton slacks that had to be ironed. Perfect for running errands, too. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars, is the material, over time tends to attract lint due to the surface becoming a tiny bit fuzzy, but they are still serviceable. I just ordered three more pair to replace the 5 pair I been wearing almost non-stop since ordering them over a year ago.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I found my weekend pants These pants are great. I bought a pair in black, then had to have a pair in grey also. I wear a 22W in most pants and slacks, but I've found Columbia always runs a little smaller in Women's sizes. I'm 5'7", and these pants are the perfect length to wear with running shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel pants! I ordered these pants for a trip to the East Coast. They are amazing - super lightweight, dry quickly and you can layer long johns underneath them for added warmth. The fit is true to size and the length is perfect for my 5'4"frame. I highly recommend these pants for those who are travelling and want versatile, comfy pants for all sorts of activities! The only thing is that these pants can get static-y when it's really dry in some buildings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Love these pants. Stretchy and comfortable. I do wish that they had side pockets but the one pocket works as well. While I bought these for traveling and hiking, I will be wearing them at home too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adjustable Pants, Great for Travel I bought 2 pair of these pants for a 10 day cruise to the Panama Canal. They were cool & comfortable on excursions, plus nice enough to wear on the ship. Generous fit with plenty of room in the waist, seat and thighs. The thin, soft fabric keeps them from looking bulky. Added bonus: the waist and ankle ties allow for a custom fit without any worries about hemming. Travelers can hand wash these pants and hang to dry overnight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Love These Pants! So comfortable! Bought these pants for my trip to Iceland. These pants fit true to size and still fit nicely even when wearing my wool layer underneath (which was necessary during my trip to Iceland in March). They were extremely comfortable for hikes to glaciers and waterfalls and riding in the car for hours. I highly recommend these pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants for Hiking These pants are very comfy! The stretchy fabric gives me full range of motion, and doesn't put stress on my legs or knees when climbing. Pants are lightweight, and I'm sure they will stay cool in the summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right Straight Leg Pant Great everyday pant for walking, hiking, running errands. Travels well - comfortable to wear on the plane, easy to pack, wash by hand and dries quickly. Spent 30 days hiking England, Wales and Ireland. Took 3 pair, didn't need to pack another pair of pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Pants These pants are my favorite of several different brands. Please don't xhange the cut any time soon. I have long legs and hips and I feel comfortable in these pants.. Not vacuum sealed or left wondering why my pants are tight in the thigh and loose in the calf like with other brands. They stretch when I wear them for a while but not too much. Just enough to look like comfortable, well -fitting, straight leg pants.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from weird seam down the front I'm tall (6'), and it's hard to find a plus size pant with enough length for my long legs. I was very happy with the length of these, and the fit. Unfortunately, the construction was such that the middle seam down the front of the leg rubbed quite heavily on my knee (the stitching on the inside front of the leg is quite substantial), so I had to return them. Fix the stitching issue and I will buy these pants in a heartbeat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them I love these pants. Have them in both colors and in both lengths. If I could make them perfect, they would have regular pockets and belt loops.
Date published: 2016-02-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Pants I just ordered a second pair of these pants. Very light weight fabric has a slight amount of stretch. They have enough seaming to hold their shape and not become baggy. I have used them for travel, working out and as pajama bottoms. Thank you Columbia for providing plus size active wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
