Women’s Saturday Trail™ Stretch Pant is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 132.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from wish it has better fabric quality Bought it last December but it already has serious pilling issue within half year use of time. Only wear it as the casual wear not even go for outdoors but fabric quality is not good to make it last longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pants I bought these as work pants and they are fantastic! I do a lot of bending and walking and these allow movement and the breathability keeps me cool throughout my workday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than traditional "khakis" I bought three pairs of these pants to wear as a PE teacher and athletic trainer. After wearing them for a weekend basketball tournament, I will never go back to wearing traditional khaki-type pants! These were more comfortable, light weight, and moved better. I will be buying more as soon as sizes become available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fit While these pants run a bit small and are narrow in the legs, the fit is flattering. I am 5'7" and 135 lb, and usually wear a size 8. I sized up and the fit is perfect for me. I now own 3 pair of these pants, in grill/gray, tan and now, black. The pants have plenty of pockets, are well constructed and durable. They wash and dry easily, and are the perfect travel companion when weight and ease of cleaning are important. I'm planning to bring 2 or 3 pair on an upcoming cruise, and bought the black pair specifically because it has a less casual appearance than the others and could be worn to dinner with a dressier top and perhaps a scarf. Not cheap, but worth the money...particularly when on sale!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hiking Pants I first purchased the capris version of these pants and loved them so much I went on line to see if they came in a pant version which they did. These have the same great fit (they run small - normally buy a 4 and I bought a six) which was key to me. I like the mechanism for rolling the pants up - nicest I've ever seen. They also launder and travel well. I hope you keep making both the pant and capris version because these are all I want to continue to buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WOMEN’S SATURDAY TRAIL™ STRETCH PANT I love Saturday Trail pants! They are very comfortable and flattering. I also own a few pair of Saturday Trail II knee pants, including plaid shorts. I used to buy them in size 2, but after reading other reviews I ordered these stretch pants in size 4 and they fit well. Great for outdoor activity as well as travel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be good quality I bought two different pants for a particular purpose so I could choose between. I chose the other because I liked the fit better. These seem to be very good quality though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saturday trail pants Pants are light weight. Snaps work nice for making pants into capris. I am 5'10" 126 lbs. I purchased theses in 4L color is Grill. This color seem to run a bit smaller then the other colors I had tried. A bit shorter and snug. Not enough to to need to change sizes. I have other colors and found that the British tan run larger. I wear a 2L in some and the shorts I have 2 & 4. They wash and wear fine and seem to be well made there is a little piling on the inner thigh. But pulls right off. I highly recommend these pants/capris and the Long Shorts Too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality I purchased these pants based on my experience with the capris that I have which are made of the same fabric and of similar styling. Yes, they are a great pant, durable, while also giving a feminine appearance

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bit small in the hips I ordered a 4 short and am pretty true that size in the hips, but these were more snug than I would like for trail pants, so I returned them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hiking pants These are awesome, much better than the zip off ones (which are too tight on the thigh). Cool and lightweight, which is much appreciated in the South where I live, and protects me from the poison ivy everywhere around here. They do run small as I wear a size 8 in street pants but need a 10 in these hiking pants. I'm 5'9" 155lbs and the size 10 long fit just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Pants I bought these pants for a research trip to Costa Rica. They are light weight, fast drying, and fit well. I have muscular thighs that made wearing the convertible trail pants a struggle. Whenever I would bend down/crouch, the portion where you can zip off the pant legs to make shorts would cut into my thighs, but that's not a problem with these pants! I'm also relatively short, and the inseam on the regular-sized pants isn't as long on me as I expected, which is great.
Date published: 2017-07-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pant for summer The fabric is cool and comfortable. I'm 5'1" and have the regular length to wear with hiking shoes and the short length is perfect with sandals. My only problem is that the solid pair I just received is definitely smaller than the black & grey camp pair I already had.
Date published: 2017-07-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable pants These are super comfortable light-weight pants that fit great and aren't too tight in the thighs like some of the other styles!
Date published: 2017-07-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stretchy and comfy I bought an XS in grey, tan, and navy green. They are awesome pants, I'm 4'11 and the XS Short is perfect fit for me with a little inch more to give. I have bought this pant regular as well, and it does run a little longer but great when wearing a pair of ankle boot, nice scrunch. The fabric is stretchy and really comfortable for all short of activities. The only issue I have with them, if you're like me, who wears these pants probably 3 times in a week or have bigger thighs, the fabric sorts of wear in the inner thigh area due to rubbing and it starts to collect fabric ball pieces, which you get from socks. They are still amazing even so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My favourite pant Love this style. I have two 3/4 length and just purchased a full length Saturday Trail pant. Almost give it full marks, but the front snap has a slightly sharp edge that can be a bit bothersome, and they are difficult to hem. But they are so incredibly comfortable, fit beautifully, and look dressy enough for many non hiking adventures. I will be buying more - please don't discontinue this line. Highly recommended. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The fit and fabric are perfect--Pocket on thigh needs to be bigger I do love these pants. I'm 5'2" 123lbs, slim in the hips and the 4 Short fits perfectly. My only recommendation for change is that the pocket on the right thigh is relatively useless for me. It's too small and shaped oddly. You have to unzip (love that it has a zipper rather than velcro!) and then try to face your fingers toward the back of your leg to grasp whatever you've managed to fit into the pocket. Awkward! If it has to be small at least face it forward to the front of the leg. That's the way your arm reaches best, yes? Thanks for continuing to make great garments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saturday Trail pants Love these pants. Very lightweight, comfortable, flattering fit. I like them rolled up as capris better than the capri version of these pants. They don't look so hiking-like to be out of place in town, so are especially good for those hikes when dinner out follows. My daughter has two pairs and talked me into my first pair; now I also have two pairs and tried to buy some in black yesterday, but the store was out of my size. I usually wear 0 or 2, but like the looser but still flattering fit of the 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the adjustability for length! Great material and I love that you can covert it into capris length. Love that it has UV protection.
Date published: 2017-06-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from not enough stretch I usually order this type of pant in an 8 as the stretch compensates for any "snugness". These pants did not fit the bill. The were tight in the crotch and the waistband did not have much give. I felt the overall design would not fit my body type even if I went up one size. I recommend this product due to quality and workmanship.
Date published: 2017-06-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from great pants but why did the size change? I love these pants and have them from last year in the same size, but when I ordered them again because they are so good, they are too small. I am very disappointed that I had to pay for shipping to return pants that should have fit so I could exchange them for a bigger size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My mom loves these! I got these for my mom, she lives in Costa Rica and goes hiking every weekend, she absolutely loves them, she has them in 3 different colors, and wears them all the time, they get dry super quick and look really pretty!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile Pants These are great hiking pants. I love that Columbia makes them in long sizes. They did well in the heat on a 4 hour long hike this weekend. At the end I was able to fold up the legs and secure them to soak my feet in the river at the base of the mountain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Love these pants! Originally ordered one size too small, they run smaller than the sizing chart suggests. However, customer service was very helpful. The pants are light weight, well constructed and comfortable. My "go to" pants.
Date published: 2017-06-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the stretch and fit These have become my go-to pants, cuffed for warmer weather and down for cool evenings. The fabric has just the right amount of stretch and the pants look much dressier than my previous travel type pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product but Size Runs Smalla I ordered these for an upcoming trip to Iceland. I'm in love with the pants and the quality, however they RUN SMALL. I usually wear a 2 or 4Long, so I ordered a 4L. The length is perfect but I can't even button them. Columbia did not have my size in a color I wanted but searched online for me and found them from another website! So happy with the customer service! Thanks Scott

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pant I am a full-figured gal and these pants don't feel like I am wearing pants at all. Great fit and love the stretch fabric that moves with me.
Date published: 2017-05-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs VERY small - but worth it once you find the right size I normally wear a size 8-10 in pants but in order for these pants to fit around the waist I had to order a size 14. Other then sizing these pants are great. They are light weight, comfortable, and styled well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THESE I ordered these to wear hiking and they are awesome to say the least. They are very and comfortable so they are easy to maneuver around in. I am definitely going to order more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful clothing choice Fit is amazing. So comfortable. I am very short and for once the advertised sizes are perfect. They're lightweight and dried rapidly after I washed them. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants! I have the convertible version of these pants in three colors. I purchased this pair to wear for "good" - especially for travel since they are so comfortable. I am a small woman and have a difficult time finding pants that fit and look good on me without being baggy and too long. They are stylish while still being casual. No doubt, I'll be ordering these in other colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for hiking I bought these just in time to hike around Arches and Zion. They were extremely comfortable. I'm buying another pair right now just in case Columbia stops offering them!
Date published: 2017-05-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not true to size at all I'm 5'3 and normally wear a womens 29 or size 8 pant. The regular fit is way too long and so I ordered up a size in a short. I was shocked to find that the leg length was good but the inseam and waist were still way too small and uncomfortable. I'm now ordering a 12 short in the hopes that it will fit well all over. There is no stretch/give in the material. It's disappointing because I really love the look and feel of the pant but I'm having to spend a lot of extra money in shipping because the fit is so untrue to my normal size. I'm still recommending this product pending further review and receipt of my size exchange.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these! Love these pants, have every color. Great style, great fit, super comfortable. Didn't make a 5 star because the material starts pilling on rub zones.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too small in waist Wanted to love these pants for work but they were way too small in the waist but fit everywhere else. Wish the waist band had a little more flexibility but with still the belt loops.
Date published: 2017-04-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile pant This pant is a classic. It is well designed and easy to care for I purchased three pairs. They are functional in warm weather for walking or hiking. They can be dressed up for evening with the right top and accessories. A true find for a petite sized woman who is active.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy athletic trainer! I'm 6'1" with an athletic build at 185-190lbs. I love these pants! They weren't as long as I had hoped (purchased the 12L), but they covered my shoe and because of the fabric, do not ride up or expose my ankles when I move or sit. By trade, I'm an athletic trainer and work in Georgia (which means a lot of swamp butt). My job requires me to be outside daily, get down on the ground or climb around to assess patients in a variety of settings, and be physically active throughout the day. These pants wick, stay put, dry fast, and give when I have to get down on the ground. Perfect for my job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants! Worn for snow tubing, walking in rain or shine and will be taking to AZ for hiking (using the very useful option of turning into capris) Very versitle pant and comfortable to wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Longs are lovely I normally wear a size 10 long but after reading the reviews ordered a size 12 and glad I did. Overall fit is good although the waist is a bit large. Luckily there are belt loops to ameliorate that. Otherwise, the fit is good and flattering with a below the waist fit. The long length is perfect. I am about 5'11" and so appreciate a pant that doesn't look like they shrunk in the wash.
Date published: 2017-03-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too Small I am between a size 6 and 8 at most places, so seeing the reviews ordered an 8, which was much, much too small. There is no stretch to the fabric at all. Due to the cost of return, in case a 10 is too big, I will not be re-ordering.
Date published: 2017-02-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Tall length isn't tall enough While these pants are great style and fit me well in the waist and upper leg, they just aren't long enough and the is no extra fabric to lenghten them. Am considering a return for this reason.
Date published: 2017-02-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Hiking Pants The best hiking pants ever! If you have long legs this is an amazing pants that you can get in "tall". The quality is great and it is true to size. The pants are super comfortable and fashionable. If you want to feel comfortable and at the same time look beautiful -- I highly recommend this pants :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pant I bought these for an 11-day trapse through Peru. They were GREAT for hiking, I never once rolled them though since they did not roll up too high on my 5'3" frame. It was fine because they were cool even when the sun came out. I wore them for a few days straight and they did not smell too badly either! They got wet when it rained, but dried very quickly. Overall a great hiking/travelling pant!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Curvy/hourglassy girls, these are for you! I have a very difficult time finding pants to fit my very curvy and petite body (5'3'', 38" hips, 26" waist) but these pants are simply excellent. They are incredibly stretchy, light, breathable, comfortable, soft and hug my waist. I can bend and move and climb and hike without the dreaded "waist gap" but have plenty of room in my hips and thighs. They fit flatteringly and smoothly by themselves, but I can still fit a base layer underneath to keep warm during cool weather. I don't agree with the reviewers who say the pants run small-- they're true to size for me. I think that it's more likely that these pants are better suited to curvy builds with large waist-to-hip ratios. 4 stars because these pants do snag easily and can pill up. I've had them for about 10 months and they're still very wearable, but they definitely don't look as nice as before. Also, they're not as water-resistant as I would have hoped. But I love these things and own 2 pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I now live in these pants I'm 6ft tall, normally wear a 12. The 14/long fit but I got the 16/long for extra wiggle room. The 14's were a little tight in the thighs, but I'm also a weightlifter. Half my days at work are spent in an office and the other half are on a boat. I've been looking for a pair of pants that worked for both and these are perfect! The material seemed a little thin at first, but after wearing them every day for a few weeks, I feel like they are indestructible. I now have a pair in every color and rarely wear anything else! These are so comfy and move so well that I could even wear them to the gym! Also, normally even the tall sizes are too short on me. These are exactly the right length! I sure hope these never go out of production!
