Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pants! Love these pants. Take them when I travel as well a hike. Easy to wash and quick drying. Comfortable, good fit, and durable. January 2, 2017
Rated 1 out of 5 by What is up with that thigh size?? I am 6' tall and 130lbs. I have scrawny little stick legs. Like many other reviewers have said, the thigh zippers on these pants are miniscule! When I sat down they cut uncomfortably in to my leg and were too tight even when standing. The waist fit fine. Side note Columbia, 34" inseam is not tall enough for tall ladies. Can we get an extra inch?? December 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable Ordered size 2 short. Am petite, 5", 103 lbs. fits great. Love the cinched hem. November 12, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fabric didn't last a week I got these for a trip to Europe that was to be mostly urban walking plus visits to galleries/museums etc. The so-called "durable" fabric started to pill at the crotch with less than a week's worth of walking. We averaged about 15-20km of walking a day. I was expecting to have nice-looking pants for at least a full season. I am very disappointed given the price point and I'm regretting the purchase. On the plus side, they were comfortable and fairly stain resistant, odor resistant, and dried quickly after handwashing in a sink. They seemed to hold their shape really well. Sadly, the pilling in the crotch means the fabric will become threadbare far too quickly and I would not be okay relying on this product for a more aggressive outdoor aventure like backpacking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Skip this pant.. I bought this pants because my other convertibles where getting really old. These pants stretch so much that you feel uncomfortable after a few hours...don't buy them if your destination is really warm because the fabric sticks to your legs, don't wear them on the plane if you have a long flight the zipper on the convertible becomes very uncomfortable and tight. October 24, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice, light pants These pants are nice and light, but the zipper to convert from pants to shorts is a little tight around larger thighs. Can't wait to take these on an adventure to see how they do! October 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great look and fit. These pants look and fit great especially when compared to my old baggy hiking pants. So very comfortable. I have not worn them much yet so I don't know about durability. Fabric is very light weight but that is fine for me - I won't be wearing them in cold weather. My sister recommended them and absolutely loves hers. October 17, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ripped the First Wear These pants ripped (as well as another style) on the first wear! Both pairs of pants ripped right above the stitching at the back side. What a shame. Horrible quality. October 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light weight Very comfortable and fits true to size. October 15, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Fabric Pilling I bought at least three pairs of pants with this same kind of fabric and was very happy with it in the beginning. It was very comfortable and and fits well. After using it a few times for travelling and hiking, I started to notice that the fabric starts to pill and now it's not looking good. I am so disappointed with this purchase! October 3, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too short and top tight After reading the reviews, I decided to buy a size bigger than usual. I usually wear 12L-14L and ordered size 16L. The quality of the pants is below average and they appeared to be the length of average pants. Like many other reviewers commented, the zipper was way too tight around the thigh region. The material was very breathable and comfortable, but if needing to bend low, crawl, climb or walk through the bush, I'd very afraid of ripping them. Overall this seems like a good pair of pants for an average hiker with a very slim body build. September 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, functional pant! I recently went on an overseas trip to Europe. My luggage did not arrive until 7 days into the trip-at our last port of call. Luckily, I wore these pants on the plane. These pants were great! I unzipped them and converted them to shorts immediately. They were extremely comfortable in the climate and I was able to wash them out and let them dry at night. I cannot say enough good things about these pants, the material, the fit, they are a wonderful value for the $. Thank you Columbia! September 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Woman's Saturday-trail-ii-stretch-convertible-pant I bought a pair of these in the US and the waist band stretched. August 27, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by legs are snug I purchased an 8 tall and then returned due to being too snug. Purchased a size 10 tall which fit great except for the zipper off section of the pants. Way too tight and I do not have large legs. Disappointed as finding tall in a hiking pants is very difficult. August 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great hiking pants Love the fit and feel of these pants. They run a bit small and long so just adjust what you normally order. Well worth the purchase. I bought two pairs. August 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Hiking Pants I love these pants. They are very comfortable and functional hiking pants. I am 5'2" 120lbs and the size 8 short fits perfect. I am usually a size 6. Go up one size for comfort. August 18, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Zipper is Constricting The pants are comfortable and high-quality, but the zipper was quite tight around my thighs when I bent my legs. Granted, I have athletic legs, but ultimately the zipper did not give me enough range of motion and I did not keep the pants. August 9, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by The elastic zippers are FAR too tight on these curvy thighs! The elastics in the thighs are also FAR too tight. Even when you hold them up, you can see them pinch in at the thighs causing a very unpleasant squish on the thighs. Ahem... we are trying to draw attention AWAY from our thighs clothing designers... The elastics should be as wide as the thigh. I was so excited to see TALL hiking pants, I bought a pair one size too big based on all the other reviews. They are, heart-breakingly, still too short. 32 inches is NOT a tall pant. I can usually get away with one size larger and they hang lower... but not these ones. Most stores carry 33, 34, and even 36 as a tall option. These pants are just no good for us tall curvy gals! However, the hips and bum did fit well, so I'll keep the capris I bought in the similar design. I have yet to find a Tall Hiking pant that is long enough to accommodate my height AND curves Columbia. With your $7/shipment AND the cost to return items is not feasible... I am getting very discouraged! July 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these pants!! I bought a pair of these while I was in Yosemite National Park two years ago. It was July and very hot. These are great pants for hiking in. We usually started out early in the morning on our hikes when it was relatively chilly. Then as the day wore on and the temperature increased, all I had to do was unzip the bottoms and I was wearing shorts!! The material is not too heavy, even if you want to keep your legs covered, like if you are walking in weeds or tall grasses. I purchased a second pair as I am headed out to the Pacific Northwest where it is going to be considerably cooler & felt I needed two pairs to sustain me for the week. July 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I needed Fits well, looks good, very functional. Just what I needed for days in the field. July 13, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Zippers too tight After reading all the reviews I still decided to give these pants a try but like others have said the zippers are way too tight. I even ordered a size up and they were still too tight. I will be returning them. June 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE! I am wearing these for the first time today and I absolutely love them! The fabric is so lightweight and comfy: they might be my go-to pants in the dog days of summer. I bought these for a hiking trip and some other travel but honestly I kind of want to wear them all the time now. I'm debating whether they are dressy enough for business-casual work wear. The waist isn't low cut, but it's not high-waist either: it's pretty much perfect. I hope they will not stretch too much on our hike as I'm hoping to wear them for multiple days. I actually like the roll tab cuffs with the snaps. They roll up very nicely but not too high. The leg cut fits easily over my hiking boots when they are unrolled to full length. I'm 5'3", 120lb and the 4 regulars fit loosely (the 2s were skin tight). If I weren't wearing them out hiking I might get the short length - that would work better with flats. The pockets are another huge benefit - I really love that there's a zipper pocket, in addition to the two front slit pockets and back pockets. Overall I'm extremely pleased with these pants. Might have to order another pair! June 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best ravel pants I love these pants -- have them in every color offered, because they wear and work so well. I've long been a fan of zip-off pants for traveling, as they allow you to bring pants and shorts in one. These Saturday Trail ones are the best I've found. June 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by AWESOME PANTS I read the numerous reviews about these pants before I bought them. Most of them said the zipper rubs again the thighs during walking and climbing. I went ahead and bought them because I needed some convertible pants for a hiking excursion in Utah Canyons. I bought the black because I felt they would go with everything. I love them, they are light weight, very comfortable and although I did feel the zipper rubbing again my thighs it was not uncomfortable. This is why I gave them only 4 stars. I have worn them on hikes where it rained and snowed and they are water repellant. I would highly recommend them! June 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best professional work outdoor pants I work outdoors but I am often asked to escort important dignitaries through the woods. These pants are the best of both worlds. Great fit and so light and cool that I can be comfortable while looking great. June 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by love the feel I have always wanted these pants! Get fit and feel to them. Easy to move around!!! June 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great! Those leg seams though... First off, I think these pants are awesome. I've taken them on a few hikes so far and they've kept me warm, but not hot, and most importantly, dry. Spring hiking here includes navigating trails with streams running across them occasionally. These pants have not let me down once in that regard. The sizing in the waist seems a little small to me but my normal size still fits. I have a 35"-36" inseam and the long inseam fits me perfectly. Now to the seam connecting the bottom of the leg: they are just too tight. They are uncomfortable (in that seam) when I sit down. And I don't feel as if I have large thighs for someone my size. This is not a deal breaker for me though. May 17, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by too long I love the bottom feature of a pull string but it keeps me from altering the pants since I don't want to loose that feature but they are about 2 or 3 inches too long for my 5'3" frame so there is a lot of sagging at the bottom of the pant making it look weird. I also wish they were a higher rise for my more mature body. i love the light weightless of the material but there is also a sound when I walk with this material. May 1, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Convertible Trail Pant I love everything about this pant except the zippers. I have very muscular thighs from years of bicycling and the zippers do not have any stretch to them so they bind on my thighs when I lift my leg to take a step up. This is especially frustrating when taking quick movements up rocky slopes where it impaired my range of motion. I tripped a couple times when I let my guard down. I love the nonconvertible pants and shorts as they have a lot of stretch. I think this product would be awesome for someone with slender legs. I am 5'5" and 130 pounds. April 4, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Tight in leg I bought these pants and they fit perfectly everywhere except where the convertible zipper was. They were so tight around the zipper I couldn't sit down. I do not have large legs. If I was to go up a size, they would be too large everywhere else. I was sad they did not fit as I really liked them. March 29, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfy pant but it stretches out I love these pants and they are very comfortable. However, after a couple hours of wearing the fabric stretches A LOT. When trying on, size down or buy them a little snug. They will stretch out. I'm 5'8" and 137 lbs. I usually wear a size 8 but I think I might have to buy a size 6 for the next pair. March 10, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for the trail I bought these for a 5 day Inca trail hike to Machu Picchu. The days started very cool and warmed up enough to appreciate shorts on the accent. They are comfy and stretch for maximum comfort. They are breathable, wick and dry rapidly. A great multi purpose pant that isn't "nerdy" like most zip offs. I am 5'7", 125 lbs and I ordered a small tall. February 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by They look nice... Fit is good, function is great, but mostly like that they look nice too. January 4, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Zipper in legs too tight When I first tried these pants on I felt they fit well. True to size. I set off on my adventure. It wasn't until I was actually using them that I realized the problem. The fabric the pants are made of stretches but the zippers don't. In fact, the zippers seem to be a bit smaller than the leg opening making it very tight when climbing uphill or over rocks. I am a size tall (that may be part of the issue) but my thighs are not large so this was somewhat of a surprise. I will not wear them again as they are too uncomfortable. January 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by petite size fit well I had read complaints about the zipper being tight but I did not find this to be a problem I'm 5'2 and wear a size 12 petite. these fit perfectly. they washed well and very wrinkle resistant. I would buy them again September 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent fit Soft, comfortable fabric September 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Pants Very attractive and high quality. I didn't have a problem with the upper leg area being too tight where the shorts end and the legs are zipped on, like other reviewers mentioned. I have medium legs as far as bulk. These pants do fit a little small though so I listened to other reviewers and sized up. I like this type of pant to fit a little loose anyway. They do hug and accentuate your booty, but at the same time they make it look really attractive too. Bonus! I really doubted I'd ever wear these as shorts but I think I will now based on how attractive they are as shorts, since the leg opening is a little close fitting, not gaping and the length is really nice too. I'm 5'6" and 128 lbs. I ordered the Fossil color and the color is a bit lighter and a little less rich than pictured. It's close enough though and they have many redeeming qualities so I'm keeping them. September 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hiking pants I bought 2 pairs of straight leg fit (size 4 - 125 lbs 5'7") and they were great for hiking. Fit was perfect and colors nice. The only remark I and others have noted is that the thigh zipper is a little snug when you sit down but not uncomfortable, just noticeable. I would still buy another pair but they could make the thigh a little looser fit. August 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome I bought these in the fossil color , the light tan and got huckleberry stains on them today and didn't realize till later, so as I rinsed the area in cold water, "voila" the stains disappeared instantly!Plus they were super comfy as I was doing a lot of crouching and bending picking those berries as we hiked up the mountain side! I'm 95 - 98lbs and barely 5ft tall and I bought size 2 , they fit great, of course way too long, like every pants I buy but the ankle cinches solve that problem ! August 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice fit, very comfortable. These shorts run true to size with other Columbia products, but smaller than other brands so that's why I gave it "runs a little small" As other reviewers have noted, the legs are quite narrow, but this is exactly what I wanted as most shorts I find are way too baggy and unflattering through the legs. They are comfortable and flattering. August 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Leg zippers are way too tight I have been looking for a functional, multi-tasking pair of pants for my first thru-hike of the rugged Appalachian Trail next year, and I thought I found The One. I'm a 5'4", 185lb female CrossFitter and have the thighs that go along with it. I was surprised to find that I fit in a size 12 given that my hips and thighs measure more than my waist; the material is stretchy enough to fit comfortably whether standing, lunging or squatting, but for an Active pants style (articulated knees and all), the leg zippers seem to be the dealbreaker to an otherwise awesome pair. At the knees and bottom half of the thighs, these pants feel more like bootcut rather straight cut. I think I'd have better luck with the Modern Classic style, but I think it'll be too much at the waist. Or maybe just size up to a 14 instead. Either way, I will definitely be returning these. Please fix this, Columbia! July 29, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too tight around convertible zipper area! I have a couple of saturday trail pants that fit GREAT, so I gave these a try. I was disappointed in that the zipper around the leg/knee/convertable area was just too tight. When I sat down the zipper around the leg was uncomfortable and tight, just not comfortable or flattering. I am 5'7", 135lbs so I am considered slender by my friends, but I think you have to have skinny legs for these to fit right. July 29, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Tight knees. I was really really sad about purchasing these pants. I have had the worst time finding a pair of hiking/hunting pants (in a ladies cut) that are not loud and "swishy" and also have belt loops, as I carry a side arm while out in the wilderness. I thought I hit the jackpot until I went for a short hike in them - the zipper'd knee area was noticeably tighter in the store while trying them on, but I did not expect it to impact my movement too much because I have slender legs. To my dismay I will not be packing out an elk in these pants, no matter how quiet they are. From the zipper up 4 to 6 inches gets so tight when stress is put on the fabric. These are not adequate for hiking treks or hunting and I am legitimately disappointed. Especially cause they fit really nicely overall in the butt and length which is really rare for this kind of pant. July 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Leg zips are too snug My sister loves her size 10 in these but I'm easily a size 8 in the shorts version (which are a bit too short for me). They fit great except regarding the diameter of the leg zips, like so many others have said. Took me a while to decide if I'd keep them or send them back. I kept them, but couldn't wear them on a steep hike or sitting for long periods. July 16, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by I Thought I Had Found the Perfect Hiking Pant This is difficult to write because I love these pants. The fabric is light and dries quickly, they have just the right amount of stretch, and they have a slim silhouette, not baggy and rumpled looking like some other convertible pants. Not to mention they also have ample, utility-wise pockets that zip or have Velcro closings - something very difficult to find in women's pants. My one problem is the fit. I'm 5 foot 3 and three quarters of an inch (okay, okay . . . but I want that three quarters!) and weigh 130 lbs on most days. Petites or Short sizes are usually an inch too short. I tried on the size 8's but the crotch bunched, so I tried on the size 6 regulars - perfect! Great length and fit around the waist and hips. The problem came later when I sat down. The zipper area was too tight. So much so, it constricted blood flow and I had to keep pulling them down. These pants are too narrow at the knee at the zipper. I wanted to buy more, but this has turned into a deal breaker: pants only good when standing or zipped off. I still wear them because I have yet to find another pair that fits all my needs and look so good while doing it. Pleassssssse fix this. It's a good design. July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saturday trail II Yes, I love these pants but I miss the soft lining around the waist of the previous Saturday Trail pant. June 16, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Women’s Saturday Trail™ II Stretch Convertible Pant I really fell in love with this pants, it fit just right, I ordered the short, and with the elastic cord on the bottom, it fit really good. however after the 1st wash, the cord on the right leg, broke off and I couldn't put it back in, so I ended cutting both cord off.. so now its too long, for $65.00 that I have paid, now it's just not worth it. If I could I would return it for a refund? June 4, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Shrinkage I bought these a size up, because that's what fit best. I tried them on, sat down in them, they seemed like the perfect pant for my upcoming trip. I washed them as instructed, and packed them in my suitcase. I was really disappointed when I put them on, as the seams/ attachments around the leg zippers had shrunk (a lot). I couldn't sit in them comfortably, or hike up anything steep, as the zippers cut in to my thighs. I don't have long lean thighs, but was shocked that they had shrunk so much. May 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Purchase Bought these because a friend of mine had a pair and absolutely loved them. I needed khakis for work at a zoo and wanted a pair that would withstand outdoor work, weather, and dirt. I purchased a size 2 and they are a bit loose around the waist but a belt should fix the problem. The material is soft, stretchy, and comfortable. I'll have to wait a while to see how they perform during work but so far they seem to be worth the splurge. May 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this product! I usually do not spend a lot of money on clothes but these pants are way worth the price. I needed pants that I could zip off so that I could walk during my lunch break at work. These are perfect! May 6, 2015
