Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional Great cool comfortable fabric. Nice to be able to easily pull the legs up for capris. Great for any activity. Very easy care. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Womans anytime casual ankle pant Was very unsure about ordering these as I'm fussy when it comes to how my pants fit and what fabrics they are made of. I read a number of the reviews and decided to take the chance. They do fit true to size, have found them a tiny bit tight where I'd like them a bit looser but am trying to loose a few pounds. They are very comfy, love the elastic waist. I was a bit disappointed in the length of the legs, had assumed they would reach my ankle when the pull was let loose. I'm 5'5" and they fit as a longer version of a capri which does work for the Spring & Summer but maybe not in the Fall or Winter. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pants These are my go to Spring thru Fall pants. They are comfortable, stylish, and keep my pale legs from getting sunburned without causing me to be overheated. I own them in 3 colors and wear them almost everyday! I'm 5'5" 125 lbs and the small fits perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Columbia Women's Anytime Ankle pants I LOVE these pants - so comfortable and they look great - ruched sides. I wear them on the weekends when it's cooler outside. I have them in every color and they are so well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect hiking pants for me I have 3 pairs of these pants because I love them. I'm only 5feet tall and slim and these fit perfectly including the length which falls right on my ankles. I wore these a lot in Iceland in October where they saved me from getting wet from the rain and during our visits to many waterfalls. They are comfortable, thin, stretchy, and breathable...good for hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants for travel and casual wear Pants are comfortable for long plane rides and great for summer travel. I really enjoy the nylon fabric: light, cool and wash and wear. Columbia has a great selection to choose from. I even wore leggings under one these pants in very cold Naoshima Island. I was expecting the low temperatures. It was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best casual pants Love this style. Have all four colors. I don't care for the ties so I cut them and wear the pants as regular style. I am 5'1" and the length is perfect. I purchased the black and blue for traveling and ended up purchasing the green and light gray for everyday wear. The cypress is a very pretty sage color. Perfect for the warmer weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Favorite hiking pants These are my favorite hiking pants (I love the length, pockets!, and general style) but mine fell apart after 10 months (the stitching around the waste band completely fell apart and they were ruined). So great pants but poor quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Anytime ankle pants Only worn once since purchase on a hot, humid day. It was comfortable. The material is very thin so I hope it wears well. There are ankle ties which are also thin. I bought a light gray and wish it were slightly darker for dirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit was great for hiking in Sequoia & Yosemite National Parks These pants are a perfect fit and didn't tear while hiking. They are very comfortable and dried quickly when we got wet while rafting on the Merced River.
Date published: 2018-06-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to pants anytime The fabric is so light and breathable that these are my pants even in humid 100 degree days. They keep the sun off my legs which actually makes me cooler. I’m not much of a shorts person so these pair w cute tanks and any sandal. I do like the ties at the ankle, a nice touch. Have the black and going back for other colors. I’m 117 and 5’6” and long waisted so the waistband on the small hits too low. I’m in a medium which is a little on the big side but manageable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought for hiking, but wear them everywhere! I wear a size medium and am 161 lbs and 6 feet tall. I bought these pants for a backpacking trip I was planning. I tried them on when they arrived to make sure they fit, and now I can't not wear them. They are so comfortable and flattering! I wear them everywhere. They are great in the heat and more conservative than shorts. I plan on purchasing more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ankle pants These ankle pants fit great. They stay in place perfectly while I am working. I clean houses so I move a lot. I am short so theses actually fit me like pants so I chose not to use the ties. I usually wear an extra small but I ordered a small so they would not fit too tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Frequent customer GREAT fitting. Since it was slim fit I ordered a size up. Loved it so much bought two more. Not sure about the ankle ties, cut them out of one pair. My favorite pants now. So comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go- to everything pant These became my favorite pants as soon as I tried them on. Wide waistband, flattering cut, versatile, and comfortable in the heat and when it’s cool. I’ve worn these hiking and I’ve worn these with flats and a cute top. The fabric doesn’t get any better..holding its shape and color. When I went on a cruise I wore these every day much to the chagrin of my cruise partner. But even on day 5 they didn’t hold any odor. You can’t go wrong with these pants. Lots of compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anytime Casual ankle pants I love all the 'Anytime Casual' line. I have the dresses, skirt and pants. Best Travel clothing ever! No wrinkle and so versatile from casual to dressed up. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite pants! I purchased these for daily wear, travel and hiking and want to wear them every day! They are stretchy, easy to clean, hold their shape and super comfortable. As a shorter person (5'2"), I have finally found pants that hit at the ankle and don't drag.
Date published: 2017-08-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pant I have this pant in both medium and large, both fit, the large isn just looser and more casual. If you take the tie show out, the pant is a bit dressier. Very comfortable and versatile. I am 5'2", it is a good ankle length for me. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from High waters These pants would have been great if they weren't too short to be regular pants and too long to be culottes or capris. Great comfort and craftsmanship, impractical design.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Where oh where does the description say "skinny leg"? I am debating whether or not to return these. I looked at the fit and size guide before I ordered and realize that "active" would be more snug than other styles but these fit like "performance". I realize I am a plump little thing, but here's the thing: the tag reads "leg: skinny" which I know enough not to order. Me + skinny leg = uh-uh. So why isn't "leg: skinny" anywhere in the description? Sshould have paid more attention to the review that compared them to leggings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from even better than previous Anytime versions ... I was looking to add another Anytime ankle pant to my wardrobe. I wasn't too sure about these since they are not exactly like my original Anytime pants ... BUT - I am so glad I bought them! I bought the darker grey color and it's just great. I'm considering purchasing the pond color to add to my summer wardrobe. What's great about these pants is that they fit even better than the older Anytime pants. They hold their shape better and don't stretch out and sag after a couple of wears. And they look equally fitting for the trail or the office. I wore mine to work and got compliments that day. Size small fit my 5'3'' 130 lb body.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs Much Smaller Than Old Style I have an older pair of anytime outdoor ankle pants that I've had for a couple of years. These are comparable in comfort (I actually prefer the elastic waist instead of the old snap, zipper and drawstring) and just as nice of quality. The old ones don't have the ties at the bottom of the leg. However, these run quite a bit smaller. I have 2's (the smallest available) in the old style, and they are quite loose and a bit big on me. I ordered these in an XS and they are very snug. Fit like a legging. Still great pants though!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ankle pants for any weather! Loved these pants. I'm so happy Columbia offers these sun protection clothing. Great fit. Cute detail on the sides of the legs make them adjustable. They kept me cool and fresh, washed easily and dried rapidly. ( Loved the stretchy waistband. )

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pants ever I like reviews that help me understand the product. I am 5'6" approx 150 pounds and ordered two pairs of these in large. I probably could have worn a medium but assume they would have been too tight. I live on a farm and have a second job of working at a fast paced outdoor restaurant. They are the best pants. With the elastic waste there is no tugging or pulling and cool, better than wearing shorts. I have them on today on a 50 degree rainy day and surprisingly I am not cold! Also they can be worn as dress up or down and while they are casual they appear dressy. Great travel item no questions. I don't know what I would do without columbia!!! There are no comparisons in many of their clothes and are a go to source for me regardless of price. I love my columbia outfits!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Comfortable Pants! I have these in several colors. Wear them constantly and get compliments constantly. They are comfortable, functional and breathable! I've worn them while traveling, while hiking and while grocery shopping. Absolutely love them. And the elastic waist just makes them that much more comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pant but short I love the pants, the size runs true, the fabric is great but I am a short women 5ft4in and these do not hit my ankle. I'll wear them as a Capri which works for me with the legs chinched. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for work and workouts! I have found my new favorite pants! I wore these to work with a nice shirt and shoes and was complimented for looking "glamorous", even though that was not my intention. They are, however, extremely flattering and body conscious. Because the fabric is thin, a longer shirt or tunic would be best over these for work. I went straight to the gym in these, where I climbed comfortably for two hours, thanks to the stretchy fabric and elastic waist- woohoo! I'm buying these in more colors asap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, but runs small. I where a 10 in Columbia pants and they fit slighty loose but an 8 is too snug. I ordered these in a medium which should be an 8 to 10 equivalent. They have a lot of stretch but seem very small almost to the point I think they are a small. The ankles are adjustable but snug. I saw these at a local store but they didn't have the color i wanted, the medium was bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great pants with style brought 3 of these pants to ware walking on the beach and spending the day in the sun touring Florida and the Islands. I have other sun protection pants with wide legs and these have more style to them. small is tight and medium was to big for the style. I am 5'3 at 124 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants I have had these pants for 2 months. I wear them several times a week to walk the dog at the park. The fabric resists water and the dirt falls off. The pants wash beautifully. The stretch is just right and the pants have held their shape after hard ware. I have short legs, so the adjustable ankle is very handy. I highly recommend these pants. I am buying more. Carolyn

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice pants but the length varies! True to size. Colors are as shown. Material is soft, pants are well made. The wierd thing these are not ankle pants for me -they are calf pants because I am 5'9" tall (134 lbs) so I took off a star for the poor description. I got the size medium. I guess they would be ankle pants is you are 5'. They are nice as they are not very snug on thhe calfs. They looks nice on. Can be dressed up or down. I wish Columbia made these in a tall so I can have ankle pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the quality of this product. These ankle pants have great quality but run large. I usually wear a size 16 or xlarge but these fit larger. Unfortunately size large is no longer available. I liked the length of the ankle pant as you could wear them longer or cinch them up for a shorter Capri length. Will order when available in smaller size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants! I am so excited about these pants. I needed something for summer travel that would be durable, comfortable, light, not take up a ton of space in my bag, and versatile in terms of temperature. These are it! They look neat and stylish, are very comfortable, not hot at all, and will be great from walking around all day to going out to eat at night. Super happy with them. I got the black (not sure I like the steel grey or I would order those too) and might by another pair so I can take two with me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pants, period. I bought these to go deep sea fishing, I prefer long pants to the shorts since the Gulf gets HOT in the summer. I found these pants to be simply lovely. Light, flexible, and practical. I loved the wide elastic waist, it doesn't look dated and fits so comfortable. I liked them so much I've been wearing them to the ball fields, and just about everywhere else. The drawn ankle keeps them stylish too! I'll be purchasing another color. Wish these were offered in more of the lighter colors too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and perfectly stretchy These are my new favorite pants. I bought them in preparation for a trip through Europe and I think they are going to work perfectly. They are light weight, very breathable, and perfectly stretchy without stretching out and looking baggy. I purchased the light grey in store and look forward to adding more colors to my collection. I wear an 8 or 10 in pants normally and the medium fit perfectly.
