Rated 4 out of 5 by I even wear them for work People cant notice if its between a lounge, sporty, comfortable or formal pants because of the cut, design and fabric. These are pretty well designed and I am not disappointed at all. In fact I would even buy them again if I find other colors. January 16, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Pants Ever These pants feel great, look great and work great. This is a FIVE star product all the way! January 5, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful pants! I bought these last week for pickleball. I just love them. The legs aren't baggy and they are not like tights. As they are called.... Just Right! Very breathable fabric, lots of stretch. They sit just a tad below the waist, not a low rise like so many pants. I know I will buy another pair as soon as I see a sale. Order a size up from your regular pant size as all Columbia pants do run a little small. Columbia- don't change any thing on this pants except offer more colors. December 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Pants Ever! I have these pants in both black and grey. I love the quick dry material and they make you look long and slender. Good for outdoor adventures and for wearing out to concerts, etc. I can wear a size 6 but I like a little bit of looseness in the size 8. The drawstring makes them fit perfect in the waist. The short size are a tad long for me (I am 5'1.5") but I just roll up the small hem and they work fine. Overall, a great outdoor water repellent pant that is not baggy and not unflattering. December 13, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Pockets!!! I put them on and loved them. Loved the fit. Loved the fabric. Then I went to put my phone in the pocket. No Pocket!! One small zip pocket on the leg -- good for a key fob, but no front/back pockets. Can't go around carrying my phone all day. Bummer. Over priced for leaving out the detail of side pockets. December 10, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Odd Waist Tie I was really hoping to like these pants. Fabric feels nice. Does have good sized pockets and a zipped leg pocket, handy for ID and key. There is a zipper and snap closure for waist. There is also a drawstring / tie closure to tighten the waist, if desired (and for a good fit, I need that). Problem is the holes for the tie to exit the waistband are set too far apart . . . about 2 1/2 - 3 inches from each side of snap closure . . . so when you tighten the ties, snap and zip front pooch forward. Tacky looking. Better placement of tie openings would have prevented this. Won't be buying more. December 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable and flattering! I work outside at a barn and didn't want to wear jeans everyday. These pants are perfect, they are very comfortable, they fit true to size, and they are appropriate for work environment. Very happy with the purchase! December 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by just right Love these pants. Not too baggy, not too tight. I am in between a size 8 and 10, 5'2", 145lbs. The drawstring in the waist is great for those of us in between sizes. Super comfortable. November 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I LOVE THESE PANTS I love these pants. I had to buy them in a size 4... I am not a size 4. I'm generally around an 8 ... a 6 if I'd had a good stomach flu or something ;) On the other side of the size, these pants are my go-to. I have taken them on all my travels - which are many, mainly Latin America and the pacific. I can also wear them here in the States, and I get lots of compliments. They are soft, stretchy, and super comfortable. They don't get misshapen, even after being worn for a while. I have them in grey and also in black. I just love them. I will probably buy a pair for every pair that wears out until they no longer make them! November 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My new favorite pants!!! I originally bought these for a multi day hiking trip. Now, with my pack constantly rubbing, the material at the waist deteriorated a bit, but it by no means destroyed the pants. I normally wear a size 6 and these I was able to wear a pair of thermals underneath. These are my favorite comfy pants for everyday lounging and they are perfect for traveling as well. I normally don't write reviews but since I'm buying a second set I thought I should October 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by love these pants! I love these pants, they are a great fit, love the slimming look of thm. I can were with my running shoes or feel comfortable with a long sweater and boots. This is my second pair, and a true favorite. October 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love- would love pockets more Love how they fit and feel. Just wish they had pockets. Fit true to size and make my legs look good!! Just need some place to put my chapstick and cell! October 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Delivers As Promised Good fit, lightweight but strong, room to move but not baggy. Truly "Just Right." October 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2nd pair !! I got a pair 6 months ago , i HAD to get a second one .. I had to return the 14 , it ran small for me ..I now ordered a size 16 , i like a very loose waist and to wear then mid hip ..plus i have thick thighs, so is you have heavy thighs , order one up . My first pair was a 14 , i purchased them at Gander, not sure if the size was marked wrong on the pants .. customer service was great we measure my 14 , and they were actually a size 16.. I wear a 14 in regular jeans , but the 16 fits great, not tight and look really slimming.. the comfort of these pants are unbelievable , you wont want to take them off.. I used them when i attend a survivor man course with Les stroud , i was in the woods foe 3 days sweating 90 degree heat, making fire and learning to build shelter , the pants stayed totally dry , and super comfortable through out the whole course . They stretch , and bend with you , and dry in a flash , plus they fold up super small for back packing and traveling !!! October 5, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Grey color All the black pants I ordered were true to size. The grey - smaller and longer. September 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great,Comfy These pants are very nice and comfy and attractive. They move with me. They are true to size. My inseam is 27" so I ordered the short and that was perfect. September 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for travel I bought these pants because I had a pair in green that I bought a few years ago. I like to wear them when travelling, especially when flying. They are super comfortable & I like that there is a pocket to put your passport in. August 26, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Missing Pockets The fit is fine. I was surprised when I ordered Regular to find that the inseam was 32" so I returned them for Short. I'm 5'7" so I didn't realize that was considered "short". The pants do not have pockets, this makes them fine for street wear as one can carry a purse etc. but not outdoors. I bird so I'm in and out of a car or van and backpacks can be a hindrance so pockets are a necessity. August 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pants A bit long, but I am super short so what I expected. I just wish they had regular pockets. Otherwise, great pants... Flattering. August 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite pants! These pants are so comfortable! I wish they had pockets; however, still would rate these as the best fitting pants I have. I wore these as my "airport" pants on a recent trip to Yosemite. They have stretch but maintain their shape, even after several days of wear. The drape of the fabric is flattering but doesn't look tight. LOVE them! I wore them hiking one day, but opted for my convertible pants/shorts the other days. July 31, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Women's Just Right Straight Leg Pants In general, I like Columbia pants because they come in short sizes. However, this pant falls short on its functionality for climbing. It could use more pockets for things like bars/beta. The one pocket that it does have is situated on the front of the thigh, as opposed to the side of the thigh making for constricted movement when one is stepping up. Also, I find the stretchy ties to be somewhat futile in their function. If they were made of a static material, it would allow one to cinch the pants tighter at the waist after multiples consecutive days of wearing have stretched the waist out. In addition to this, it would be helpful to have the ties located on the outside of the waist band as they seem to get stuck in the zipper every time you try to refasten the pants. July 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wonderful feeling but not good for rough field work I bought these to work in the field in. I figured they would be breathable and help with climbing and hiking mountains. They fit wonderfully, true to size and stretch for comfort. However, with climbing hills with vegetation they don't quite hold up. I'm talking not on trails here. With branches scratching my sides they have already had a few strings on the inseam come loose. I love them to pieces and would be wonderful hiking pants, but not field work tough. June 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Everyday Hiking Pant! I purchased these pants at REI to wear for hiking trips with the family. I've only ever worn hiking capris, but the hike we were going on was very rocky and still had snow in many areas so I wanted a pair of pants. After trying on literally every single pair of hiking pants REI had in my size, these were one of two pairs (both Columbia) that actually fit me. My hips and thighs are my biggest problem areas as these pants didn't cling to me like all of the other pants did. They were lightweight enough that I know I'll be able to wear these on warmer hikes, but still warm enough for the snowy areas. I loved how quickly the pants dried out too. I highly recommend these pants for pear shaped ladies! June 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Pants for Women My wife loves these pants. They're tremendously comfortable and great looking. I bought her a pair and she was so pleased that I quickly picked up two more. Highly recommended. June 7, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Pilling fabric This is ridiculous. After only 3 washes it started to pill. I have never had hiking pants do this. Very unhappy with the quality of the pant. June 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Haven't had a chance to wear these yet, but they seem to be a perfect balance of rugged and refined. Wouldn't feel out of place to wear to dinner. I am 5'3" and the short were perfect for me. The waist is very forgiving and doesn't dig in. It has an internal drawstring for tightening. The material is soft and drapes well. June 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Pants I love these pants. The fit is nice they are lightweight and pack able. I wear them for everything from rock climbing to hiking. The only downfall is that they are starting to pile and I notice that near the waist ban the treads are coming loose. It has happened on every pair i owned. Despite that I will be ordering more soon.. Columbia these are awesome pants...keep then in stock May 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product wears well and fit great Purchased a pair a couple years ago, and absolutely love them. They are vey comfortable, and stretch with movement. Like that they dry quickly for back backing and repel moisture. The drawstring at the waist is a great feature. May 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great pant I have been wearing these for years and love, love,love them ! great fit, protects from the sun and mosquitoes while feeling cool and comfortable. I have them in the Capri style also. May 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Love this pants. Wish they came in a brown, and navy color also . May 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable for travelers & active people I've owned these pants for about one month and find them to be incredibly comfortable. I wore them while traveling across the pond and it was like secretly wearing PJ pants. They didn't bunch or bind and were comfortable when running to catch the next flight. The only issue I had was the zipper on the leg pocket flagged me for a pat down. Also, I'm 5-4 and they are a little long. When I wear these on the trail with hiking shoes/boots, the length is perfect. April 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love these pants!! These are the most comfortable pants! They are comfortable like pajamas, but drape nicely. Though a very, sporty style, I feel very comfortable in wearing them to work. I have just bought my second pair. I bought a size 10 at REI, because I thought the 8 looked a little tight over my butt. Well, the inner tie is also made of stretchy fabric, and is a little funky. The size 10, when the inner tie was tightend appropriately, laid above my waistband. OK for long tops, but not for tucking in or shorter tops. The second pair I ordere direct from Columbia in both an 8 and 10, and this time the 8 fit great. It's presently getting shortened, so I haven't yet worn it for real, but am certain the inner tie will work much better. I'm never disappointed in the quality of Columbia clothing. March 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by womens just right straight leg pant Just received straight leg, all purpose, black size 14, short trousers. I am going to get a lot of use out of these, both around town, traveling and even while paddling on a dragon boat. Definitely versatile, even elegant with the extra gusset of material on the outside leg seam, which streamlines the wider leg. I am 160 pounds, 5 ft 2 inches and have a 43 hip and with the functional draw string in front to pull in the waist a tad, the 14, short is perfect. I like roomy clothes, nothing bulging. I will be able to wear walking shoes or trainers, and strut my stuff without feeling inadequately dressed for summer or our mild FLORIDA winters. Thankyou Columbia! March 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hiking pants I've owned a pair in black for over two years, they have aged well. I just bought in tusk. March 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Versatile pants I love these pants because they're very comfortable, can be casual or a little dressy, and give easily when moving. They travel well because they breathe, repel water, dirt and food, weigh very little, dry quickly after washing, and take up very little space in your bag. March 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable & classy This is my third pair of these awesome pants (black, grill & now tusk colors.) Wrinkle free materials make them perfect for travel and errands; can be paired with a vest, topped with a sweater or jacket for style. I'm 5'3" and order the short length and avoid hemming. The elastic tie cord around the waist keeps them where you want them without the fuss of a belt. Easy wash/hang dry. Love them! March 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just Right Straight Leg Pants - Tusk Short Ordered Just Right Straight Leg Pants, Tusk color in sizes 2 and 4 Short. Normally wear Columbia size SMALL SHORT and either Columbia size 2 or 4 SHORT depending on cut. I'm 5 ft and usually wear size 4P in other brands. Columbia Just Right pants size 4 Short fit best and length is fine. Size 2 Short was a little too snug around the posterior. Waist has an interior draw string to snug-up and hem has a chinch string. Pants are really nice and comfortable. Waistline is a more modern style and rests at my navel with a short zipper. Will be great for travel and hiking. Recommend. February 29, 2016
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
