Rated 5 out of 5 by Best long flight pants My favorite pants for international travel, especially the multi-hour flights! They're like scrubs but in a lightweight, stretchy fabric that doesn't wrinkle. Easily washed out in a sink and dry by morning. I have both the black and gray. February 3, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Beware if your buying again this year The fabric has changed. Much thicker and not nearly as soft. Huge disappointment, wish I had bought more last year. I will be shipping these back. January 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great black pants! These go for hiking to the workplace. Don't show dirt and doesnt wrinkles while traveling. I have gotten several compliments on these and they were the first thing I packed for my upcoming trip. I am 5'10 195lbs and the 16 fits nicely. I like the side leg pocket for keeping my phone while hiking. January 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great quality and very versatile These pants are very comfortable and wear well. They stand up to constant use and years of washing. January 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorites These pants are my favorites by far. If I could wear them every day, I would. The lack of waistband, smooth fit and strategic seaming all work great on my petite but curvy frame. They are stretchy and weightless and feel great on. As others have stated, the drawstring is also stretchy, so limited in terms of functionality. And I do wish for a heavier weight option for the winter months. Lastly, mine have pilled a bit over time, but I have to admit that I have worn them fairly constantly to get to that point. January 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love these pants! I bought a pair last year (black) and wear them all the time. I just got another pair in grey. They are great in the rain, with a base layer when it is cold, and are perfect for a warm weather hikes. The cinch hem is perfect for biking or tucking into boots and they look nice for casual wear. I love these pants! December 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ladies trail pant excellent product, fit well ,sales person extremely helpful.Will purchase from again December 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Ok, so I say it on these as well, most comfy pair of pants ever. These and the everyday wear, I can't say enough about them. They are the best pants ever. I swear I ordered 6 pair between the 3. (Back beauty) I also got the Saturday trail 2. All are a 4 short or a 6 short. The length is perfect! The fit is amazing. Also a plus, it was raining the other day and I stayed dry, the rain ran right off! Love love love them. Thank you. November 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable pants Very true to size, very comfortable fit as well as an inner draw string. Very professional looking. November 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super comfy for all activities Great fit and very comfortable. Great for hiking, walking, biking and even everyday activities. Love the zippered pocket on the one leg. I am not tall, so the short option was perfect. Light weight fabric. The stitching give them a better fit and trim look. November 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great lightweight pant These pants will be perfect for spring and fall hiking- I may even play a round of golf in these! November 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Back on line to order another pair LOVE these pants! I'm back on line to buy another pair. October 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Hiking Pants I have had it for a couple of years (or an earlier model very similar). I used it a lot. It is very comfortable, light to carry, and looks great. The stretchy fabric makes it both comfortable and durable. It stretched instead of breaking when it's caught in rough rocks. It still fits me if I gain or lose weight (sometimes during a multi-day hike) due to the fabric and adjustable cord. All trail stains wash easily out of it in the washing machine. I climbed Kilimanjaro mountain in Africa and hiked Mayon volcano in the Philippines in this one. I love it. October 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfort Easy to wear, dressed up or down, and having a pant that comes in "short" is a bonus! October 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb fit, excellent quality I got these pants for hiking and warmer snow shoeing. They fit great whether or not I have my long johns underneath. Today I was rock climbing, and the fabric got snagged on a rock. I backed up, unsnapped myself, certain to have a nasty reminder of this trip. To my surprise, the fabric is perfect, no sign of having been snagged up. Other pants would have a small tear from what I did. I often have a problem with pants that gape at the back. These ones do not. The little draw string on the waist band is not really needed for me, but makes an absolute perfect fit. I will most certainly be getting another pair. Just wish there was an option for a slightly longer leg for when I nordic ski. October 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for travel Best pant ever for warmer climates. Wore it to Guatemala in 2014. Liked it so much I ordered another color for travel to India and Thailand in 2015. Super comfortable. Can wash in hotel room sink and it dries quickly. I like that there is a short inseam option. October 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome pant! Love, love, love these pants. I get compliments on them every time I wear them! Super light weight and very comfortable. Can be dressed up or down. September 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great well made pants I bought these because I love the capris in the same style. I was afraid the pants may be too short. I am 5'11" and to my delight they were not. Great for wearing with flat shoes or sandles I know I will get many uses out of them. They move with you and no binding. August 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice pant Heading to Madagascar and these are the perfect lightweight pant. Great fit. Only wish they came in a lighter color. August 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I bought 3 pairs! These pants are the most comfortable pants I own. Worn daily for work, they are still in mint condition. If you can't wear shorts...these pants are so thin that you don't get hot. After wearing them for months, I feel uncomfortable in jeans! August 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for moving! light weight stretchy dry fast I have bought 6 pairs of these pants. The material is not super durable even when washing and air drying, but they are very very comfortable except in hot humid (cotton only) weather. I can readily move & bend my body in any way, bring knees to chest, etc, w/o constraint, so they let me exercise comfortably, and they dry fast if they get wet. Use w/long underwear or rain paints if you need warmth. They roll up easily w/o bulk to allow wading in water. I am tallish (5'7") & they are long enough for which I am grateful. Would be easy to hem. July 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite pant and capri!!! Love these pants! I have black & grill in the pant, and black and khaki in the capri. I bring them bicycle touring as a change to street clothes, they pack very small, are super comfortable, and look great. Dressy enough to wear in DC! They're cool in hot weather and in cold weather I wear a layer of silk under. Please bring the Khaki back in the capri and add Khaki color for the pant!!! I'm 5"2 & the petite is 1" too long and need to be hemmed. July 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by first review ever I love these pants. They first pair I ordered were a bit big so I gave them to my sister who admired the smaller size I was wearing. They are slim fitting and flattering. Not a lot of pockets. I have worn them flying fishing several times both in waders and wet wading. They dry is about 20 minutes. July 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Terrific slacks for every purpose I've worn these to the opera, hiking, flying, touring, dining. They are the best for dressing up & down- I only wish there were more colors available. Also, if pockets are essential, these aren't for you. June 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great find Not one to write reviews... so this must be good. These pants are comfortable and yet smart enough to not look like you are shopping in your yoga pants. Everyone has said it before, if the same material can be found in different colors that would be even better. I bought two in black and one in grey. I also love the capris and skort......bring it on...dark brown, navy, olive etc. More pockets would be fabulous but I'll survive. I am 5'11" 160 lbs and the 10 is a good fit. If there was an actual "long" inseam I would chose the size 8, and I normally wear a 10 or 12. Happy trails. June 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy Pants...needed a Tall inseam These pants are terrific...so comfy. Could you please make them in a Tall inseam? Thanks! June 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Well Made I am 5'1" and find it difficult to get pants that are an appropriate length. These surprised me-they are perfect and do not need to be shortened. I like the light weight, the shape is streamlined though has give. They stretch but retain their shape. They are useful for many casual occasions. I would purchase more if additional colors were available. I have 2 pairs black, 1 pair dark gray. The only reason I gave them a "4" rather than "5" is that the drawstring is set to draw and tie on the inside so it sits at my real waist rather than the outside of the pant. Not very comfy. May 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by straight leg pants So comfortable and great fabric May 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love them! Great fit, lightweight, dry fast - the perfect outdoor adventure and everyday pant! I have worn these hiking, playing with the wet dog, bike riding, out to lunch/dinner after the adventure, and just for everyday. The simple long lines are figure flattering for a tall girl (5'7"), and the elastic around the ankles is perfect to hold them around your hiking boots and to prevent them from dragging on the ground when wearing flip-flops. These are my go-to pants for the lovely in-between weather of spring and fall when rain is always a question mark. They are functional enough to ride my bike to a destination and still look nice enough to go out for lunch or coffee. My husband said it best : "How do you look so cute when I look like I've been outside all day?" May 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Stylish These pants are great. Exceeded my expectations. Stylish. April 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great pant This pant is comfortable and attractive. One issue, just a tad long for a petite pant. Still needed to shorten quite a bit. April 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by These Are Great Bought them for travel. I have another pair in black that a bought a little while ago...they fit great! So comfortable. March 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great travel pants This is my third pair of these pants. They are lightweight and comfortable for travel and you can dress them up a bit, so they work well to go from day use to a casual evening out on the town. I usually wear an 8 and these run a tad large. I tried the 6 but they were just a tad tight. I'm right in between the two sizes (a problem I seem to have with this company, but not others). But the drawstring waist helps a lot to tweek the size. It may be my imagination, but it seems the other pairs I own stretched a bit after several uses. I do wish they had more than that one tiny side pocket. Why don't more of the nicer looking women's pants come with pockets? I need pockets! But overall I do enjoy these pants. March 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Far, So Great These pants fit great, are very flattering and are super comfortable (a wonderful silky fabric that's stretchy but holds its shape). I'll be curious about how durable they turn out to be after a summer of hiking and outdoor use, but in the two weeks I've had them, I've done many long walks/hikes, as well as some light gardening (kneeling) and a lot of housework -- and I have been surprised at how they don't look dirty at all and the fabric shows no pilling or snags. I'm 5'8", 137 lbs. with long legs and they're plenty long enough for me (some people thought they were on the short side). My usual size 6 fits just right in these pants. I got two pairs, in black and grey (as any sensible woman would do for a great piece of clothing like this!), but the grey is kind of a dull color, and I would love to see Columbia offer them in a fawn or a nice green, too. February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazing but no tall size tried on a pair of these pants today and loved them - only problem they don't come in tall. PLEASE make these in tall for those of us with long legs that would love to order some. Thanks. December 30, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice if you know the issues first I ordered these and plan to return them for another size. I usually order larges or 12 so I ordered this in a size 12 and it's too large. I need to tie the interior drawstring to keep them from falling down. Also, they are much thinner than I thought-NOT for winter wear. I am thinking of getting the 10 as I do like the look if I can get the size right...but not sure they will be long enough in a 10 as the length leaves nothing to spare in the 12. Still deciding. December 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Pants I could wear these pants ever day of my life. This material is so light weight, flattering, comfortable, sporty and looks good. I only wish these had normal pockets. It's hard to see in the picture, but the pocket is on the side of the thigh, and it's too small for my phone. Other than that, I LOVE these pants. December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love! It is hard for me to buy pants without trying them on, because I am pear shaped, and could try the same size pant from 50 different stores and they all fit different! I gave these a chance, and ordered for an upcoming trip to Germany, where the weather could fluctuate a lot. The waist is a little big, but they have a drawstring, which I wasn't aware of, so the fit is comfortable. The material is light weight, but I am thinking they will keep any wind out. September 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for work or adventure Love these pants. Bought an older version a couple years ago at the Columbia outlet, wore them constantly, and I'm so glad I bought this updated version in both styles. The fabric is great: nice enough to wear to work, with plenty of stretch for kneeling, crawling, climbing. I'm a true 16 in the hips & thighs, but smaller in the waist. With the drawstring waistband, these are a perfect fit. Wish they were available in khaki, too. September 24, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too short I have them. I like them. They are too short though, so I don't wear them unless I'm isolated in the wilderness. Even then, my ankles get cold from the breeze. Columbia makes them in regular and short, but why not tall? Loyal Columbia customer, but until they decide to make tall inseams, I'll have to buy pants elsewhere. I'm 5'9" and wear a size 4. 4 TALL please! September 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable Pants I purchased these pants to use for a bike packing trip as my end of day pants. In addition I was traveling to a conference at the end of the trip and I was in need of a pant that would double as a casual slack but didn't add a lot of extra weight to my pack. These pants are light weight and soft to the touch. They do hang a little loose on me and stretch a bit after wear. Overall they look fine as a casual slack for the conference and seem to unwrinkle after being hung overnight upon arrival. September 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by extremely comfortable pants Very easy to wear/move in, good-looking, amazingly comfortable fabric. The fit is flattering. Excellent for many uses: travel, hiking, and going out on the town. August 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A definite winner I purchased the first pair of these great pants at a retail store. I liked them when I tried them on....I loved them the first time I wore them. I have washed them, and they stayed true to size...I washed delicate cold, and a short time in the dryer.. Still looks like new, and fit fine. I've already ordered another pair to take on a 3 week European vacation. I really want to wear them, but am trying to save them so they will be new. Besides being so comfy, they really look good. Not too casual. I'll probably wear one pair on the flight...since it's an overnight one! I can wear them with walking/hiking shoes, or even with a pair of sandal crocs. Put on a cute t-shirt, add a scarf, and you've got a classy looking outfit! April 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love! I love these pants! I have worn them to work and on a four mile walk so far and they are so comfortable. I can't wait to go hiking in them. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable These pants I ordered in short because all outdoor pants in stores are way to long, so I was thrilled to actually have pants that fit! The draw string is a great feature. They are light weight and very comfortable. Not for cold, cold weather unless you layer but perfect for cool spring and fall hiking. Have worn them in the high 30s and a drizzling weather and they did very well. Will buy again. March 30, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Hikingladywholikescomfort I recently bought several different hiking pants from Columbia to try for hiking later this summer. I liked the stretch in these pants, but not the fit. The waist was too big and pants too short (with no ability to lower the hem several inches). I tried several sizes (12, 14), but both didn't fit well. The quality of the material, however was excellent. Please always offer pants in longer inseams (33"+) and with waists that hit right below the belly button for comfort. These went back to the store. As mentioned in another review, check out the Not Your Daughter's Jeans (Marilyn style, in particular) to get the dimensions right with the rise and length. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Is it socially acceptable wear these 24/7? Because honestly I would live in these things. They are the most comfy, cozy pant. They're a little stretchy, so not as confining as denim or khaki BUT they're not so much "stretchy" pants that I look like a weirdo going to work, the bank, or shopping in them. Seriously obsessed. I plan on buying 2 or 3 more pairs in different colors. They're magical pants. Made with actual magic, I'm convinced. Because my butt has never looked so fabulous before. I plan on taking them to Europe with me this fall. I will hike in them. I will go out in them. I will live and breathe in them. March 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect pants I have to say that when I bought the pants I bought them because of all the good reviews so I received my pants and all the reviews are true these pants are absolutely wonderful. They are the perfect go to pants they are very comfortable and they feel great on and they look great I would definitely recommend these pants March 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice fit the high back covers your assets no worrying about pulling your shirt down constantly. drawstring a plus for getting pant to fit correctly.generosly cut in the legs for maximum comfort. March 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything as advertised! When I slipped these pants on, I couldn't believe how well they fit, true to size like advertised, but also, probably the most comfortable pants I have ever had on. They also wash excellent. Will order other colors. February 24, 2014
