Women's Saturday Trail™ II Knee Pant is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfort in action I am pleased with these capris. The updated version of a pair I returned because the side pocket zipper got stuck on the fabric. I received great, prompt service from the warranty dept. They eliminated the fabric concealing the zipper which solved the problem. These pant are very comfortable and can be worn for everyday use not just hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants These are my fifth pair. I love them for sailing as they are UV protected and quick dry. Also very comfortable and easy to move in. Great for running errands and just lounging too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Looking Pants I love them and have them in two different colours. They wash and move well. I find it is easy to be active in them whether I'm hiking a mountain or going for a quick run. I would recommend them to anyone looking for pants that are knee length and flattering for the body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these capris I buy these every year in multiple colors. They can start to "pill" and look worn but I wear them a ton and the price is terrific.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all-round go-to pants I bought a pair of these capri knee pants four years on a holiday in the US. I have worn them almost daily since - for yoga, for hiking, for biking, for just dashing out to the shops. They are fantastic. Comfortable, hard-wearing and quick drying. I am frequently asked what they are and complimented on how they look. I have just ordered three more pairs in different colours. It is a pity they are not available in Australia, but at least I can order online and have friends in the US mail them to me. I am between a 4 and a 6, and the size 6 fits perfectly. They are a close fit, but are super comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE them These capris are the bomb! I discovered them two years ago and love the fit, feel, comfort... I had some issues with pilling on the inside of the thigh area (and I have slim legs) so I returned them and received credit. I went a whole summer without them bc I was told I could only use my credit for sale merchandise. I thought that was odd and after getting over my frustration, I kind of forgot about it for a while. I recently went back to my credit and with the help of some awesome Columbia customer service, I was able to order them with my credit in time for my fall OBX vacation. Perfect!! I hope black comes back. I have gray and beige.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LIKE THEM BUT FABRIC PILLS :-/ I bought 2 pairs of these capris and otherwise would like them alot, but just as the others who commented, the fabric pills badly after wearing them only a short while. I do not recommend them...at the price paid for them this should not be happening! I have another pair of Columbia capris in a different style that I've been wearing for several YEARS without this problem. Columbia you need to do BETTER!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fabric Pills badly These are comfortable however I found the material slightly clingy after a summer of wear and washes. Also, the material has pilled so much that I don't feel comfortable wearing them in public.....just for yard work or solo hikes. I would not classify these as "trail" pants as they snag on rough surfaces such as logs and rocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Third Pair When these pants went on sale, I decided to get a third pair. I loved the feel of the first pair I bought, then bought a second pair in another color. Now I could get a bargain third. While I still love the pants, here are two differences. 1.The material feels different, not bad, just different. 2. The first two pair ran small in size so I had to order a 10 instead of my usual 8. BUT these are a true 10 and are a tad larger. I am thinking a hot dryer ought to make them the right size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Haves I have these in every color. Starting walking 8 miles per day and these are by far the best walking pants I have. I just spent 9 days in Yellowstone doing day hikes and hands down these worked beyond expectations. I am only hoping they last for years or that Columbia keeps them in the line up and adds more colors. Thank you for a great summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knee pants but fabric pills I love these knee pants. I have had them for 3 months and they are my go-to for hiking, walking, and other summer activities. Runs a bit small. They are cool and lightweight but not clingy. My only complaint is that the fabric has become completely pilled, and I find is not up to Columbia's usual high standard. Otherwise I would have given them a 5-star rating. Too bad as they are otherwise great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these capris Very comfortable. Light weight, nice stretch to them so good for any activity. Bought a second color. They are my summer "uniform" to wear around home and out and about. It was helpful to know ahead of time that they run a bit small. I ordered one size larger than normal and they are a great fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too cool for school I love these pants! This is my second pair. They are so nice and cool in the summertime. They don't stick to you when you sweat and are great for hiking. Nice big pockets too, which seems impossible to find in most ladies clothing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from different fit i've been wearing this trail pant for several years and reordered new ones. Sadly, you've changed the cut and fit and they now run too small. The pants have been returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable These run slightly small but that is true of most Columbia pants that I have tried. I am 5'3" and 145lb. The size 8 is a little tight but it does stretch out after wearing it for several hours. I work outdoors in Florida, and wear a climbing harness so heat is a factor. These do dry very quick. The material is very stretchy so they are great for someone that is active in them. The only issue that I have had is the pilling of the material. The material catches and "balls" up very easily - especially around the leg straps of the harness. I have another, newer pair that I save for days that I do not wear a harness and I have not had the pilling problem so it is probably not an issue for most people. I would recommend these pants and will continue buying them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants for all outdoor activities. I now have 2 pairs of these great pants. Great for hiking, walking or just casual wear. They are cool to wear, light weight and dry rapidly. They wash up nicely in cold water, no dryer time. They do run small in the inseam, so I purchased not my usual size 6, but an 8. I am 5'4'', 125 lbs. They are light weight and a great pant. I purchased the India Ink and the Grill colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Light Weight Capris The fabric on these shorts is lighter than I anticipated but I absolutely love them. They are quite breathable and are great for hiking in or just wearing on a hot day. I ordered the fossil color and really think it is quite lovely. They fit well and are fun, stylish, and are great for those in an active lifestyle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous I love my new Saturday Trail Knee Pants. The material is extremely comfortable. The fit seems somewhat slimming. Wish the waist was a tiny bit smaller relative to the hips, but they still seem to ride in the right spot. I would recommend them to anyone that wants a casual, comfortable mid length pant with some stretch to them. Great for those of us with larger thighs that cannot wear the convertible zip off pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, but beware of one thing If I could live in these shorts, I would. I traveled most of the summer and bought three bottoms with me; one of them I ended up never wearing, and the other one I only wore while I was washing these. The side pocket is great for things you want to hold securely -- a metro card, a small wallet, an iphone -- and the front pockets are roomy. The material is thin and comfortable and quick to dry, a major bonus when you're packing light. So why the four stars? The material, comfy though it is, is prone to pilling. I noticed extreme pilling in the bum area after the first wash (which was a gentle handwash). I don't know what caused the pilling -- the airline seat? The bus stop bench? The washing itself? That said, I'm going to give these another chance. I've lost a bit of weight and will be buying the next size down and taking the new pair with me on my next adventures. If they survive, I'll update this review and let people know the pilling was an anomaly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and comfy! I tried these on in a store and fell in love them, although they didn't have my size (I'm a size 1, tall and slender and I tried on a size 4). Ordered a size 2 online and crossed my fingers that they would fit. And they sure did! So lightweight, comfy, and so far, they have kept me cool. I have not washed them yet so I'm not sure how durable they will stay. But so far, I love them! And bought them in "grill" color too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'm returning these pants I bought two pairs of these in black & tan an the Columbia outlet store near me & almost did backflips when I saw this gorgeous blue color. The outlet pants fit me perfectly, but for some reason, both pair of the Harbor Blue capris from the Columbia web site just do not fit the same. The inseam is .5" to 1" shorter in them than my outlet pair. I ordered a 2nd pair hoping they would fit better, but unfortunately the 2nd pair had the same inseam problem (neither pair was supposed to be petits - I ordered regular fit). I will be returning both pair & am very sad neither worked for me, because the Harbor Blue would be an awesome, fun color to wear. I can almost aways get Columbia pants to fit right so am baffled by these two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THEM! I was up in Portland and my daughter took me to the outlet. I found these pants (and a top) and LOVE them. I'm looking at buying more in different colors but they don't have my size right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite go to pants I bought three! I wear them all the time... during the day teaching P.E in the hot Hawaiian sun, in the afternoon to walk the dogs, and in the evening for a casual night out. They are so comfortable and they really do repel water and stains!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from wrinkles--a lot! One of the musts in a pair of casual or outdoor pants is the ability to wash and wear with no fuss. These have never come out of the dryer without a ton of wrinkles and I have yet to find a way around that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These Run Small I love Columbia casual pants and have at least 4 pair already....all size 4, but these ran small. I will exchange these and the Indigo color for size 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A travelers dream These pants are so wonderful to travel in and with. They hardly wrinkle. You can wash and hang them up, and they look great. They are comfortable and nice looking. Dressier than shorts. Would buy again. I'm glad that I bought 2 pairs. They run small. I wear a 6 and I take a 12. My mom wears a 4 and she takes a 10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice pants beware of the size I usually wear a size 4 but this one runs a little tight around the waist. Order a size up if you want a more relax feel...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect adventure pant I have two pairs of these pants and love them. Breathable, comfortable, quick drying... I wear them all the time at work (I work in tv production) and on weekends (hiking or going out with my kids). My only gripe is that they stretch a fair amount with wear. I originally bought size 10s that fit me when I put them on but stretched out too big. So I repurchased them as size 8s, which are a little snug after washing but then fit perfectly after they loosen up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comfortable, not durable I bought these in August and wore them on an 8-mile hike in Glacier National Park. They were soft, comfortable, and dried quickly when I got wet. However, they immediately began pilling. Since then, I've only worn them a handful of times in social situations. They look old and cheap. When I pay full price for name-brand clothing, I expect it to hold up longer than a couple months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made for apple bodies! The waist is huge! Definitely designed for the apple body type, not for the pear shaped. Quality is good. I like the elastic leg because it can be pushed up into a short. I wish it came in a smaller size. Size 2 is the smallest which really fits more like a size 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these for hiking! Bought two pair at REI and fell in love with the super light weight fabric that breaths well yet looks great! Nice zip pocket, double snap and great cut. Came to the Columbia store to buy two more pair - four pair is not too many when you want to wear them every day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic, Multi-Purpose Pant In the summer, I look for clothing items that do double-duty for the sake of simplicity. These are a great example. The lightweight, breathable material has just a bit of stretch, so it's great for physical activities like hiking. But the clean design keeps them from looking like overly technical, outdoor-activity only apparel. I feel just as comfortable running through the sand with them as I do throwing on a pair of wedges and going out for a casual dinner. I've noticed I have to size up with Columbia pants, and size down with their shirts. I'm 5'5" and 140 lbs, and the size 6 fits me perfect. I think they're very flattering!
Date published: 2014-07-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hiking I am plus size and was very pleased by the fit. I got a size 16 in the "India Ink" (blue) and "Gravel" (olive green). I wore the Gravel today on a 1.5 easy hike and it felt great. Comfortable and breathable. Since I do not have the thigh gap, my only feedback possibly is the noise but I forgot about it very quickly. Will be wearing this also on an upcoming trip. Great buy at full price but definitely need to pick up on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great capris I was looking for some capris to wear hiking and out running errands, etc. These fit well, look good, and are even nice enough to wear to work on casual Friday. The fabric feels a little less sturdy than I expected, but it's holding up very well so far. Stitching is a little wonky on pockets, but barely noticeable and doesn't affect performance. I'm 5'7 & 140lbs, usually a sz6 pants but the 6 was too tight so I went with the 8. They're a bit loose after a few wearings, but better than too tight. I wish they came in black!
