Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 53 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Sizes don't match between colors The blue color is a completely different sizing scale. I purchased a 4 in blue and is the same size as a 2 in black I purchased last year. The 4 I purchased in black fits perfectly, unlike the blue. January 20, 2017
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Thought these were going to be the perfect pant for me. I've generally had good luck with the fit of Columbia Gear pants but these were an odd fit for me - very loose in the leg, snug in the waist with a very short length from waist to croch. Sadly I had to return both pair that I purchased. December 16, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice Pants, But Way Too Small I normally wear a 2 and the size 2 in Columbia's convertible pants fit fine, but when these arrived they were way too small. They were so small, that it wasn't even close to be able to button or zip them up. Too bad, because I actually liked the color, fabric, and style. Good adventure travel pants. Will try to exchange them at a Columbia store. December 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good pants, but run small First, these pants seem to be designed for women with straight hips (like myself). If you are blessed with curves, these pants may not work well for you. Additionally, the sizing of these pants seems somewhat smaller than other Columbia pants/shorts. I’m 5’5”, 120 pounds, and consistently wear Columbia size 2. However, these pants were too snug in the waist and thighs in size 2. I reordered size 4 and I love these pants so much so that I now have two colors; navy and sage (which is dark khaki). The thigh pocket is generously sized and will accommodate my cell phone. The only cons are that the hand pockets are a bit small/ shallow and the waist could use two more belt loops at the hips. December 7, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Way too small Most of the reviews on these pants say they are too small. Why don't they adjust this problem after all these same reviews? I ordered 1 size larger than I normally wear and could not even get the button closed! December 1, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good pants but runs small Good pants overall but after one wash they shrunk a lot and were too short to wear as pants. I only roll them up now. I normally wear a size 6 but bought a size bigger, an 8, since it said they run small, and they were still a little small overall. October 12, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good quality but poor sizing I own these exact pants in a different color so I thought they would be the fit I wanted, but instead I couldn't even get them on. I was very surprised that the same size and style would be such a different fit. I love the fabric and the durability of it, but am not happy that I have to return them because the sizing was not consistent. September 25, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too small Bought two size 8 regular pants. One fit perfectly, these were way too small. Would size them as a 6. September 15, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by either tight or big I first got a size 4 which is typical for me and they were too tight so I returned them for a 6. The 6 fits ok overall but I have to cinch the waist so they stay put. A bit bummed that they don't have a drawstring built in like my faithful North Face pants. My colleague, who is the same size as me, got a 4 and they fit her fine so maybe I got a dud on my first try. Overall happy but wish they had the drawstring. September 6, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by too tight for me not the classic fit I had ordered before Short waisted ... not for curvey women September 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the feel but runs small Just got these and was so excited to slide them on. I'd ordered a 4 because I'd lost some weight and all my 6's were saggy as heck and the last 4's I ordered in shorts and capris fit great. Not so much on these. They were very snug. I had to exchange them for a larger size. The larger size it a bit too roomy but I'm wearing them anyway because they are just incredibly comfortable. September 1, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Way too small I have this pant a low review based on the terrible sizing. I normally wear a size 10 in many other Columbia pants and other brands add well. I tried them on and couldn't come close to zipping them. I love the looks but they probably run 2 sizes too small. They also may be cut for a body type that has no hips. June 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs a little small I also purchased the shorts - they are perfect in every way including true to size. The pants are perfect but was a little disappointed they were not true to size and are a little tight - same size as the shorts - but next size larger would probably be too big so I'll live with them being a little snug June 10, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Runs WAY to small I'm a 14. I wear a 14 in most Columbia clothes and pretty much anything. I ordered size 14 in these, and it fit like a size 8/10. Other than that, I love the pants themselves. Since I'm on a weight loss journey, I'm going to save these for when I lose about 30-40 lbs. They might fit then. LOL. June 8, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bad Fit I really wanted to like these pants. I like the idea of a roll-up rather than a zip-off, as the zipper tends to cut in to my thigh. I went up two sizes, and these were still very tight around my hips. I suppose if you don't have curves, you may be okay in these pants, but the look was unflattering and they were uncomfortable, so I returned them. June 8, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too small at hips Pants are very narrow around hip area. If you are curvy they will not fit well. I did order a size up from what I normally wear and they are still small. May 25, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sizing way off I have recently bought Columbia shorts & capris, all size 12. They fit perfectly. These pants fit like a size 8, so I had to return them - at my expense. May 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sad they don't fit I will be exchanging this pair for larger size. May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Pants Although these shorts are a little big on me (I wear a 0), I bought the 2 Regular and found them to be great for active vacations. They are light weight, durable, with some stretch and very comfortable. They dry quickly so were perfect for rafting. I bought more. May 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Pant, BUT Great pant, just what I needed for a long range fishing trip. The reviews are correct, these pants run very small; I am a size 8 but after reading all the reviews I got size 12. They fit nicely! I am ordering 2 more pairs. The 4 star rating is because the sizing is incorrect! May 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thanks, Reviewers! I read reviews that said that these pants run small. I usually wear a size 10 and ordered a 12. They fit well, so no need to send them back for a size that fits! Very helpful information found here! April 3, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Size Up 1 to 2 Sizes I sized up 2 sizes after reading the reviews and am glad I did. I also have Columbia's Anytime Outdoor pants and the fit of the Aruba is a lot more snug. Unlike the Anytime pants, these pants do not stretch. But I think the material is more durable as the Anytime pants will pill. I don't think the Aruba pants will have that problem. It's very lightweight and great for hot/warm weather hiking. Because it's nylon, it will dry quickly if you're having to slosh through water. I like the fact that they can be converted to capris. These pants would work well for traveling. I'm 5' 4" and will have to shorten these pants 3 inches. March 5, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by pants i agree, they run a bit small. Its the same good quality that all columbia products are. light weight January 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs small I usually wear a size 2 in Columbia pantts/shorts, had to buy a 6 in this pant October 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pretzel My regular size was way too small. Not happy I had to spend money to send it back. October 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice looking pants These pants look and fit great. Cool material, washes and dries easily. I like the stretchy material in the Anytime Outdoor Pant better but these are great also. June 27, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by cute but tight This is the first Columbia product to not fit anywhere close to size. Disappointed but will continue shopping Columbia because products fit my professional and personal style. June 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very versatile pant Looking for a light weight versatile travel and golfing pant. These are perfect, I am 5'7" 133 pounds I do wear a size 4 in most Columbia pants but a 6 in this pant, and the regular is a good length although it would be nice to have the option of long. Greater color selection would be nice, will order more. May 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Purchase I ordered these because I wanted a pair of pants to wear to work at a zoo that would withstand outdoor work, dirt, and weather. I purchased the sage color and it's a very pretty. I ordered a size 2 and found them a little big snug in the waist but not too tight where they were uncomfortable to move around in. I haven't yet tested their durability at work but so far I'm happy with my purchase and think these were worth the splurge. May 11, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Why are all the pants so little in the leg? I'm pretty sure Columbia pants are only made for slender women. I have very large legs relative to my waist from years of soccer, skiing, and weight training, and even by sizing up I can not get ANY of the women's pants up more than mid-thiegh level. These pants seemed like they would have been exceptional- if they fit. March 26, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by These Ran Small for Me I have several pair of Columbia pants, size 4. These were too small so I will return for a size 6. In this same order, I got 2 different styles of the Just Right pant (Straight Leg and Capri) in size 4 and those both fit me well. March 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable They run a tiny bit big but nothing a belt couldn't help. They are thin, light and comfortable. I bought the navy. March 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by At Last! Fabric is critical for me. Don't want knit/stretchy pants. These are all nylon with a slight texture. They don't cling and are flattering front and BACK! I want pants that slightly "graze" the body and these do just that. I have the black and sage and will order more. Nothing shows through those colors. The fossil is not see-through but leans toward that. Fossil is lighter than shown here. Sage leans more towar d a dark khaki than green. Looks great with orange, yellow. Please keep making these pants. Some of us still have very nice bodies but knit/stretchy fabic reveals less than perfectly toned flesh. Needed a ten instead of ususal size 8. I wear these to the gym. February 12, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ordered large based on reviews, but too bit I'm an average frame, 5'6", 145 lbs, 36-33-40. Reading sizing comments and looking at the sizing chart, I wanted to make sure the pants would be a comfortable fit around the waist. I ordered a 12 and it was way too big...by probably 1.5-2" in the waist which made it sit low. I could have slid them down over my hips. The hips were a little roomy as a result, but might be worth a comfort factor if you're fishing all day. The pants were also about 1.5" too long. I didn't have time to return this item, so wore a non-constraining belt and kept the pants rolled up and buttoned. 2 zippered pockets #back and on leg# and 2 slit pockets at waist -- a little small for functional things like phone or camera but ok. Three stars because of challenges, but if you can get the sizing right I would recommend them for a knock-around pant. February 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by too long I was super excited to receive these pants in the mail. My plan was to use them on an upcoming trip to Thailand. The fit was great all over except the length. I wish Columbia offered Short, Regular, or Long options. I would have gladly exchanged them if these options were available. Needless to say I did end up sending them back. I am 5'2" 115lbs. I ordered a size 2. They fit perfectly other than the length. January 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pants I love these pants, they look nice for a day in the office and do great out in the field. They dry quick, and are not hot. they do run quite small, I am a size 4 to 6 and bought those in 8, they fit great but are still a bit snug on the hips. The waist is a bit higher then most pants I have but its fine. I do wish that the pockets were deeper, and had one more pocket at least... October 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great light weight pants! It runs small. I usually wear a size 4, and sometimes a 2 (are pants sizes getting bigger all the time?), but on these roll up pants I fit into the 6 perfectly. They are exactly what I was looking for a sailing trip - light weight, dry up easily, roll up to a nice length, and a nice color. August 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The pants are awesome The pants are super light and dry fast! They stretch for a very comfortable fit. I am 5'3 and muscular and usually where a size six, but I ordered and 8 and they fit perfectly. Very happy with this purchase! March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Runs Small Size Up I wear standard 8/10 in most all brands out there. 10 was too tight in waist but fit good elsewhere, so due to quality & selection re-ordered 2 pairs in 12. At 5'7.5" 145-150 lbs more of a boy's waistline suggest if you are thicker waisted, to size up one from regular fit, even Columbia standard fit. Regular length was fine, tend to have longer legs for height. Nice trim looking pant for warm, hot humid climes along w/working on farm, riding horses, or motorcycle riding. Good all around pant. Rise also plenty generous which is a must for an active pant - would say a tad higher than mid rise, won't have to worry about plumber's crack. March 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE these pants! Perfect pants for Texas surf fishing! These pants are awesome! I have several pair. They are lightweight and durable, but dry super fast after being in the surf wade fishing. They are also cute for casual wear as well. They do fit snug at first, but stretch after you have them on a little while, so take that into consideration when choosing your size. October 9, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Style and fit are good The style of these pants is great for my body type which is in between curvy and no hips. The fabric is very lightweight. I prefer fabric that is a little heavier than ripstop, yet still not stretchy. I had to hem the pants to fit, which was easy because of the straight hem, however it would be great to have adjustable tabs for the capri length to accommodate shorter figures. July 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by VerySatisfied They are a perfect fit for hiking with the exception of length. I am 5'2'' and they are long. Not a big deal for me because I sew and make them the length that is good for me. July 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I liked the idea that they can be rolled up. I read the reviews about the pants running small so I ordered a size larger and they fit perfectly. July 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love how lightweight they feel These were just delivered - I love how lightweight they feel. I live in Florida and need something light. They fit me perfectly (I am a tall, slender size 6), and I am very impressed with the fact that the inseam isn't too short ( a common problem for me). Haven't had a chance to try them outside yet, but they look well made so I hope they hold up. Should have ordered another pair! June 24, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not so much I read the reviews of these pants running small so I ordered my regular size and one size up figuring I would return one. I am returning both. The waist was very big and the tummy was a little tight. June 22, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Runs small, but would be nice They are great, but they run very small. If you could get the right size that would fit you, they would suit your needs. May 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Functional Pant These highly functional pants with cargo pocket, convertable leg to capri and super fast drying fabric and so comfortable. Wonderful for fishing, hiking and anytime. True to size I'm 5'3 and 145 Lbs ordered my usual size 12 and fit perfect! May 16, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Runs small These pants run very small. Don't care for the low rise waist. Will be returning to the store. April 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for the rainforest The final review will come after spending two weeks in the Amazon and really testing the pants for durability and ability to dry quickly. Wearing them around a little has shown the pants to be comfortable. I like the ability to hike up the bottoms. January 21, 2013
