Women’s Just Right™ Straight Leg Pant 4.7 5 60 60
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Love These I first bought these pants in 2010 when we lived in the PNW and I wore them for hiking, rock climbing, spring back country skiing and just around my house. They fall very flattering not hugging in the wrong places. The fabric is so breathable and comfortable. I liked them so much I wore them through my entire pregnancy for hikes. This year I just bought a new pair because I ripped my others, I wore them so much. Great all around pant. February 9, 2014
Just right I love these pants for lounging or going out. Great for travel! I own four of these and recommend them to my friends. January 29, 2014
multi function I can wear these pants hiking, walking, golf, around town. Flattering fit and very durable!! January 20, 2014
hard to tell By the size chart I am on the edge between 10 and 12, and I am not at all fit. I ordered the 12 since Columbia markets to the active type. These pants were so large in the belly and thighs I can't tell whether a smaller size would have been proportioned right for me. Seems like a good product though if it fits. December 30, 2013
Comfortable, light, & durable I bought the pants specifically to use volunteering at a wildlife rescue center in Costa Rica. They fit great and are super comfortable and very light (perfect for hot Costa Rica weather!) The omni-shield seemed to work really well, because I had no problems with stains even though I usually got pretty dirty. After getting back from Costa Rica, I ordered a second pair! The only thing I would change about them, if I could, is to add more pockets. It only has one smaller, side, zippered pocket. I found myself continually trying to put something in a pocket that I didn't have. December 18, 2013
So Comfortable If I could wear these pants everyday I would! Not only are they comfortable, they're stylish and hold up well throughout the day. Size and fit is just right. December 10, 2013
Just bought my third pair Love these pants! I had two pair -- black and gravel -- and I just bought my third, the grill color. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these pants. I love the PERFECT (short) length. PLEASE NEVER STOP MAKING THESE in case mine wear out. I am considering stashing my third pair to save JUST IN CASE. I love the fit, the comfort and the look. Only suggestion. Possibly one more pocket but otherwise PERFECTION. December 9, 2013
Love these pants! These are so comfortable! The material is quick-dry and has a little bit of stretch. I use them to wear to work, travel and hike. For such light weight material there very tough. November 19, 2013
great customer service These pants are very versatile - you could hike in them or wear them to work. I love the drawstring in the waist allowing you to avoid the dreaded gap!! On another note - I had to talk with customer service reps a couple times on different things - they have all been EXCELLENT. Friendly, knowlegeable and took care of everything at that time. Great job Columbia. November 8, 2013
Fits and looks great Lightweight, relaxed but close fit, stylish October 22, 2013
No fuss pants for hiking I have now worn these pants for a week of daily hikes in the open space in the high desert of New Mexico. I like them very much! The pants are very lightweight and pack small, but they have enough warmth to be comfortable on chilly mornings in October. They fit comfortably and have enough "give" for the rigors of hiking. The waist is not bulky due to the way it is constructed, but it is also the one area I would change. I wish the waist had more structure and built-in elastic, rather than the simple stretchy drawstring. As it is, the waist probably works for a wider range of waist sizes. I can live with it. Overall, a great fabric and a nice slim design (as is the fashion today) but with enough "give" to be comfortable for exercise. October 19, 2013
Great for curves Very excited to find these pants! As someone with a small waist and larger hips, I love the hidden inner drawstring which allowed a perfect custom fit. I am 5'8" and the length is perfect. The higher waist also lets me bend over with no worries. Am buying a second pair! Also enjoyed the lighter weight of the fabric - doesn't grab. September 12, 2013
Hiked Old Rag! My pants hiked Old Rag last Friday and they were spectacular (unlike my calves which are killing me)! Old Rag is an awesome rock scramble in Shenandoah National Park. There's lots of pretzel-like contortions involved and my pants went everywhere my legs went! Plus, they were amazingly light and cool on a hot summer day. They are so comfortable that I feel like I am hiking in my jammies. I LOVE these pants. I want some more! August 5, 2013
Travel pants Love these very comfortable pants and plan to travel with them. I'm short waisted and a little surprised that they fit lower on my stomach, but other than that perfect. As other reviewers have written I don't understand the inside string. Haven't washed them yet so hope they retain their shape and size. July 4, 2013
Great product Love these pants. They are so comfortable and great for travel as they never wrinkle. They are sporty but can dress them up with a nice top and/or sweater. I usually wear a 14 in pants but because they are so stretchy (without showing any bulges) I go down a size in these pants. July 4, 2013
The Perfect Hiking Pants I ordered these pants for a backpacking trip in Yosemite, and I wore them all day every day. They were extremely breathable, but also warm and protective when the wind started blowing. They didn't rub uncomfortably on any part of my legs, and I especially loved how water just rolled right off of them! June 16, 2013
Mismarked Ordered a 14. It was huge. Returned them to Retail outlet where I measured them against other 14s. They were an inch larger ie 16s. Store was most accommodating but put them back on rack mis marked as 14s. This shouldn't happen. Love the pants where they are correctly marked size. June 7, 2013
Awesome! Most comfortable hiking pants I've ever purchased! I also have trouble finding pants long enough, and these were great! Might buy another pair! June 6, 2013
A day-in, day-out pair of pants I do most of my shopping at Goodwill, and it takes a lot for me to shell out $60 for a pair of pants, but I did it for these, and now all my other pants pretty much sit in my closet having a black pair of these (3 months old). A perfect and flattering fit for me (who has a bit of menopausal tummy fat and a size 14 physique.) The material cant be beat-incredibly comfy and stretchy and light without being sloppy looking. In fact I wear some pretty dressy shirts with these and get away with it. I was not crazy about the string tie on the inside of the waist, so I cut it shorter and put a cord lock on each side of the zipper. Now they are always a good waist fit (I think Columbia should make them like this for easy adjustment), and wish they had a few lighter colors- stone, beige, light grey, sage. Cmon Columbia..I'd buy them all! And that's saying something from an avowed thrift shop junkie. May 29, 2013
Lovin them, minus the waist cord These are great fitting pants for my shape. I can do without the waist cording. I shorten them and attached a cord lock to easily adjust fit. Both slimming and very very easy pant to be in! May 10, 2013
great pants I bought these pants in both colors after trying them on and reading all the great reviews. I love the fit of the pant, hugs my body just right, and is very breathable and love the weight of the pant. I wish it had at least one pocket by the hip, but not too big of a deal. The only thing I would change, is that it would be just a bit longer. Just about an inch. The regular fit does give good length, which I always have a problem with, but would love just another inch. They wash up great and dry fast. May 2, 2013
Tight fit in all the wrong places Seems like I've tried hundreds of active-wear pants made out of performance material, i.e., a nylon/lycra blend or similar material that wicks moisture, washes in a hotel sink, and dries wrinkle-free quickly -- and they all fit too tightly below the navel and show way too much of one's personal contours. My friends share this complaint, and it's an obvious problem for almost all the women I've observed wearing this type of pant. I tried a black pair of these pants on (too) quickly in a chain store, thought they were an exception, and ordered this beautiful gray pair. Unfortunately, they have the same issue as the dozens of other brands/styles I've tried, so were returned. Too bad because they're really nice looking and appear to be well made. I'm still on the hunt. So far, the least problematic styles I've found are the Royal Robbins Paseo Traveler II (in black; the khaki must be made in a different factory because the same size fits tighter and is therefore unacceptably revealing), the Prana Viva, and the Lucy Spa pant. This Just Right Pant by Columbia is great if it fits your build; I don't recommend it if you're built like me. April 27, 2013
great travel pants I bought these pants for traveling to Ireland so I can pack light do lots of touring. These are so comfy, wash and wear. I highly recommend these. I have them in both colors. My only critique is could you make these in more colors, maybe kahki and dark blue or green? I want more! April 14, 2013
Love them! These pants are incredibly comfortable! I love them.14 April 4, 2013
My new favorite pants! I love these pants! They aren't too tight, they move with you, they're comfortable material. I wear them everywhere! I'm plus size 18W, but the 16 fits just fine. Get the 18 if you like them loose. My iphone 4 fits well in the zip leg pocket, and I think the 5 would also fit. I'm retired and we travel a lot, and these are GREAT travel pants. March 29, 2013
Love these pants! These pants are so comfortable that I wear them almost every day! Flattering and a great look for running errands, going to a movie, or for walking with friends, in addition to outdoor activities. Lightweight, but also somewhat wind resistent, they are neither too warm nor too cool - just right for a walk in chilly temps. Also comfortable in warmer weather, too. The gentle stretch in the fabric has just enough"give" to ensure that they don't bind when moving or sitting. I especially like the tie at the waist. I am petite (5') and have a hard time finding pants that fit. I had to shorten these, but that's nothing new for me. I highly recommend these pants! March 2, 2013
Look and feel great! I was looking for pants versatile enough for travel - with an agenda of lots of walking, some biking, mixed with hiking and friends. They fit very nice, the length is excellent. I bought petite and they actually fit perfect from the hip to the hem! They never make it back to the drawer - they go right back on out of the dryer! Nice job, great value Columbia! February 27, 2013
Best pants ever! I found my first pair of these pants at REI in Santa Fe. The clerk commented on how good they make your fanny look! Regardless of look - it's how good they feel, how easy they are to take care of and the fact that I don't wear sweat pants anymore that has made them an invaluable part of my daily wardrobe. Don't ever stop making these pants and thanks for offering them in short length. Job description: retired (yeah!) 65, active, nature loving outdoorsy and bookish person who loves to cook and keep a camera within reach. February 10, 2013
best pants ever These fit any woman's body. They even come in lengths--finally. Not all of us are "regular." Sleek flattering design. no gaps at waist (drawstring). Dress up or down. Wash and wear. Comfortable--stretch in every way. It doesn't get any better than this. You can see it in all the five star reviews. They're like wearing PJs. Columbia--We need more colors in this one!!! January 22, 2013
needs pockets These fit awesome and are so comfortable. I love wearing these for everything. The pants have one thigh pocket which zips and is nice but it would be better if they also had normal pockets to put my wallet/keys in snce I wear these NOT just for sports. January 16, 2013
Great hiking pants These fit perfectly, are very comfortable, and are just great for hiking. Have worn them with silkweight long underwear in cold weather and was warm without overheating. January 12, 2013
Love these pants I had bought the original Just Right capris and loved them. Then I tried the 2012 Just Right II pants and capris and was disappointed to find that the fit was quite different - had to return them. These fit just like the original and are great. Can work for casual, dress-up and hiking. Dry fast, water resistant, stretchy, comfortable. Like the black on black trim around the pants leg pocket and the black tie instead of the turquoise. Hope you keep this product - was a bit disappointed that REI doesn't care this one. December 29, 2012
Don't fiddle with what works! I have been wearing the long and short of this pant for 2+ years and always wish I'd bought more-I wear them everywhere for everything and scared they'll wear out and I'm empty! I ordered the lastest pair a few weeks ago and while the overall results are the same-I want the ones I bought the previous 3 or 4 times. The difference? Well-old ones had flat seams off center,(so much more flattering than the center, somewhat raised seam now), a snap with string type closure so you could roll them up to capri length, which these don't have, and a toggle on the drawstring to tighten the pants around the ankles. I do like that I could order these in short even though I'm 5'4" and the others were too long-. Just give me back the seams off side and the chance to roll up-the best ever and the shorts! Great for so many things. Please hear me Columbia. And I'm outdoors 350 days a year- November 12, 2012
Finally, the pocket trim matches I didn't like the contrasting pocket trim in last years pants, but stocked up on them anyway because the pants are so great. Now the pockets match and for the first time, I found them in the 'short' version and they are perfect. All my others were shortened, which is a pain and gets expensive. The back seam is a little puckery. The stretchy waist tie may be comfortable for some, but for me, it lets the pants sag too much if I wear them for work because I carry two phones and the weight is too much for the stretchy tie to keep the pants in place. These dry overnight while on vacation, so I can pack less and not check a bag. They can be worn forever without that feeling that you can't wait to get home to change into something more comfortable.
