Men's Silver Ridge™ Convertible Pant is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 296.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Older than dirt Yup, That's me! These pants are exactly what I was looking for. They're lightweight and very comfy in winter or summer, and living in New England, we experience both! Great for cool mornings as pants and zip-zip, they become shorts when it gets very hot. They dry fast, keep the sun out, yeah, I like them....in fact, I have them on right now and bought them 9/2017. Just ordered another pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hardy at sea Used these on a long range fishing trip at sea. They performed great. Held up under multiple days use that included salt water and fish slime. I especially appreciated how quick they dried. I do wish they had a few loops in front near the belt line to attach clips to. I use such loops to hold hand towels, small tools, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic pants I've worn this style of Silver Ridge pants since 2011 from safari in Tanzania to snow / ice festivals in Hokkaido and everywhere in between . Durable, fashionable and lightweight for packing. These pants are rugged for outdoors yet can be dressed up with a sports jacket for fine dining. I'll continue to purchase and enjoy Columbia Silver Ridge pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Pants Tried these out spending 4 days in Colorado's Weminuche Wilderness. The pants are light and thin, but still provide decent protection. I would buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pants ever! I have been buying pants from other companies to work and hike in for years. I have never thought about Columbia sportswear. My friend talked about how comfortable they are to work in. I am very happy with my purchase. I will be buying more in the coming year. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silver Ridge pants I have 2 pairs of the Silver Ridge convertible mens slacks; 2 pairs of the regular style. It's a comfortable fit and they look great. I don't hike but wear them when its too warm for jeans & too cool for running shorts. They are my go-to pants for travel (especially when traveling from Chicago in the colder periods to a warm weather place).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convertible pants Went on a 10 day trip to Europe with backpacks only to avoid luggage losses and waiting for bags. I had 2 pair and hubby had 3 pair of convertible, quick dry pants. So easy to convert to shorts on the hot days (as in Rome) and longer pants on the cooler days (as in Amsterdam!). Dry quickly after being caught in rain or washing them out in a sink. Many secure pockets help keep valuables close by and pickpockets away! We love them. They take up very little room in backpack, are light to carry and give you options. Perfect for travel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from silver ridge convertablePant Pants are cool and if they get wet dry quickly. Start out on a cool morning with long pants if day gets hot unzip the lower potion. If trecking thru tall grass or wooded area, zip low portion on to keep insects off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What You Want! I use these for work and couldn’t be happier with my purchase. Having the ability to convert to shorts, and still have functional pockets is great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Silverridge Convertible Great material and very comfortable to wear. Overall fit I disliked as it runs too large. I wear a 30 x 30 and have little to no issues with other pants. This one is long in the inseam and cannot wear it without shortening and also runs large. I bought a Kestral from Columbia outlet with the same size of 30 x 30 and the fit is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants/Shorts These are great pants albeit a little pricey. Very versatile because they convert to shorts. I do a bunch of fishing and bought these especially for that purpose. It's sometimes chilly in the morning and evening but hot during the mid-day so these are great because I can unzip the legs off of them and turn them into shorts. They are very light and don't feel heavy at all. They are supposed to dry quickly but I haven't really tested that yet. I know they're designed for hiking but I love them so much for fishing that I bought 2 pair. I've only wore them a few times so I can't speak of the durability yet. I know sometimes the rear bottom of pants legs can wear out if they are walked on so I make sure not to. Time will tell but so far I love them. I haven't tried the Blood and Guts convertible pants yet to compare these to, but I hope to soon. I do recommend these pants highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants for travel or anytime I have 2 pairs of these pants and really like them. Light weight and very comfortable even in hot, hot weather. I got caught in a downpour recently in Rome and got soaked to the skin. They did not cling when wet and dried out quick without having to hang them up. Probably my favorite pants for any outside occasion. It helps also that the legs zip off for instant shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light on weight, heavy on quality Love wearing these as they are so light. I get a lot of compliments on them as well. I have not tested them in the woods or zipped off the legs yet, but the zippers look quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Men's Silver Ridge™ Convertible Pant " THE BEST PANT EVER!" I have worn the same 2 pair of pants for over 8 yrs. They are sooo good, it is beyond description but I will try. They dry quickly...zippers have never failed... belt has never failed...they breath great and are easy to convert. Colors look good too. I accidentally ripped mine and think the material may be getting tired, so I bought 2 new pair. My greatest use is riding a motorcycle and wearing them under my protective pants and every where else I go off the bike..I even use them to go into the water. Oh so comfortable in either cold or hot weather and they pack down small. I will be going on a long trip soon and I know this is the perfect pants to take. I use one waist size large which seems to work well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great outdoor recreation pant These are just about the best pair of outdoor pants I’ve ever purchased. They are extremely comfortable and have very solid stitching in the all-important places. The only reason I marked function a little lower was that there have been a few instances that I’ve had a little trouble uncoupling the belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These pants are amazing! I travel and hike full time with my kids all around the country. We have been to almost every state and every climate. These pants have been amazing! I wore them with just a pair of underalls underneath in Colorado all winter. Then when spring hit they were perfect by themselves. We were in New Mexico and Arizona in summer where the daytime temps were very high. The zippers for the legs are both fast and convenient. My cat also tore a small hole in the leg when i first got them and here we are a year and a half later and the hole is the exact same size!! I love the material of these pants. Very durable and strong but pretty lightweight. I love these pants!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Women can were these too I am 5'9 and have a hard time finding women's pants in my length. I usually find men's but they don't fit my backside and hips. These work though. They are very comfortable to hike in and don't hold moisture. Light weight in dry heat and humidity. I have a few pair and never have to unzip the bottoms to keep cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only pants I wear These pants are perfect I wear them all year round. I have several colors if you get them wet they dry in minutes. I have worn them in the cold down to 13 degrees with a pair of silks underneath and been toasty warm. I wear them hiking,canoeing,kayaking and fishing as well as going out at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fishing Husband loved these pants! These were purchased in advance of a Gulf Coast fishing trip, where space was limited and every piece of clothing had to do double/triple duty (keeping sun/mosquitos/water off skin). My husband loved the comfort of these pants, and asked for a second and third pair. Easy to purchase with standard sizing, and the zip off legs are great when the breeze is stronger than anticipated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SIlver ridge convertible pant I use these pants every weekend for fishing in the Florida keys. I deal pant for hot weather and protection from sun. If it gets wet dries emmediately and if you feel like taking a dip in the water you can unzip the leg bottoms and go for it. Excellent pants highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Convertible Pant I have ever owned Columbia makes the best convertible pants ever, I have owned a Grey one for a while now and is so comfortable that I have overused it. So I recently started looking for more of the same and I bought a beige and a dark blue one. It has the best utilitarian pockets and flexibility, I have even used it while playing golf. Also, this one does not look like a convertible pant but a regular pant

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Traveling Pants I've Ever Owned This is my third pair of these pants. I bought the first two in 2012 and after extensive use they are still wearable but looking a bit stained. The original pants have been all over SE Asia on remote treks as well as canoe trips and mountain climbs in North America in addition to day to day wear. One pair became work pants and has survived a year and a half of major carpentry jobs. All the zippers still work and the ripstop fabric has proven to be true to its name. They dry fast which is great when it's monsoon season or you're doing laundry overnight while traveling. Ample secure pockets are another great feature for travel, hiking or working. They are comfortable and reliable and look good too. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Columbia Convertible Pants Very impressed with Columbia's product line. Outstanding quality and eccellent price. Was given a discount on my next purchase. Went immediately to a retail store and was able to add the discount to a item that was already marked down. They also added in my military discount. Staff eas helpful and took ghe time to find my size in their inventory. I hivhly recommend Columbia to any one looking for qualify, well designed, outdoor items at reasonable prices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MEN'S SILVER RIDGE™ CONVERTIBLE PANT is now the new PFG! I'm a vertical endurance hiker who backpacks over 1,500 miles a year, at a incline of over 75 miles of elevation change. I purchased one pair of of the MEN’S PFG BLOOD AND GUTS™ CONVERTIBLE PANTS 3 years ago... and wore them on every hike, for the past three (3) years. I finally was forced to retire them, only after accidentally washing the pair of pants with a pack of gum... and unfortunately, the gum won. However, it really makes you wonder how much longer that amazing pair of pants would have gone. In the winter, I put thermals under them, while blazing through chest high snow, up in the Northern Arizona mountains. I also took advantage of the convertible feature, by wearing them as shorts, when I hiked the warm, humid mountains of the Hawaiian Island of Maui. However, I recently noticed that Columbia changed the design features of the MEN’S PFG BLOOD AND GUTS™ CONVERTIBLE PANT. It now appears that the MEN'S SILVER RIDGE™ CONVERTIBLE PANT has adopted & incorporated all those wonderful features of the former PFG model... such as the zipper pocket. Therefore, I just purchased and received two pair of the SILVER RIDGE™, to replace my former PFG and am now a fan of the MEN'S SILVER RIDGE™ CONVERTIBLE PANT. Best Pair of Pants... Ever!
