Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! September 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! August 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! August 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Pants! Purchased these for travel and they will be the only ones I take. They are light weight, stretchy, durable and they fit perfectly. July 29, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. July 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. June 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love everything about these pants It's the perfect travel-hicking pants. I'm ordering a second pair! June 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these pants I just ordered these pants to take on a trip this summer. I love the material and fit. I have very thick calves and these have a generous cut in the leg. I am planning on ordering the two remaining colors. I March 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 15, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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! February 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. February 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. December 26, 2015
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 4 out of 5 by Comfortable Great pant, washes and wears well. October 5, 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 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 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 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 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
