Women's Anytime Outdoor™ Ankle Pant is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look and Comfort I love these pants that are so versatile and comfortable. They are nice enough to wear on an evening out and yet are so functional in an outdoor setting. I would highly recommend these as a travel item for their comfort, versatility and look. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the pants This pair of pants fits so well and the material is so soft. I have always find it hard to find pants that fits well in all areas but this pair hugs my body like a 2nd skin. Initially I worry that it would be too tight around the calf area as I have not been successful in finding a pair of tight looking pants with comfort. The pants is a little bit tight but still comfortable. The next size would be too big. I have been wearing this pants for going to gym and just to go out for the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anytime outdoor is an awesome line Just purchased my second pair of these pants. I am tall so they are definitely more of a Capri on me but not really an awkward length which is good. I also have 2 pairs of the shorts. Very comfortable for work. Able to dress up or down. And flattering. Just wish they came in tall sizes!! I should also note that in the shorts I wear a 6 but the pants an 8. It would be nice to have some consistency (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! What a surprise! I wasn't sure about a skinny pair of pants as I'm not any kind of skinny! But they fir very well, though a bit large. I figured I could add a layer when it gets colder so I'm keeping them. They look like cool pants you'd wear to a party but you can do yoga or hiking or whatever in them. Fantastic find, great for traveling light when you'll be doing various things. Super versatile! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO SOFT!! Purchased these pants for camping and didn't want to take them off! They were so incredibly soft and comfortable, not too tight a fit. I'd buy them in all colours! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product I bought the full length version of these for a trip to SE Asia years ago and love them. I bought these for an upcoming return trip and there are nearly as good - but not quite as good for me. I have 'sturdy' calves and I do find them a bit tight on the calves. Otherwise great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pant This is my new favorite pant for basically everything: I can wear the black pants to work, or for hiking while camping. Very comfortable, flattering fit. Wish it came in more colours! (I have 2 black, 1 blue, 1 red, and the long short in grey and khaki, and the shorter shorts in grey and the capris in dark grey). Yup. My favorite fit in Columbia pants! Only downside is that the material does pill, but has a good amount of stretch, is UV protection and I find that the mosquitoes have some trouble biting through it (not enough though). For reference I ordered size 4, and have a 28" waist and 38" hips and find that the pants stretch out a bit. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute pants, great-ish fit I normally wear an xs, size 0-2-4 - so had a very hard time trying to decide which size to purchase. Based on reviews, I went with the 2 and crossed my fingers that they would fit. For reference, I am 5ft tall, 108lbs. Out of the package, the calves were snug and the waist was too big - otherwise a decent fit because...the material did stretch enough to accomodate my calves, the waist tie helped narrow the waist. Ankle pant is perfect for a shorty like me. I normally wear jeans or dark coloured pants - so "sunset red" is a bit of a leap for me (justified with sale pricing), but I do enjoy the colour for spring/summer and it does go well with all the black, white, grey and navy shirts in my wardrobe. Depending on the top, totally appropriate for most environments, from camping to business casual - love the versatility! But, seems to wrinkle quite easily - and when my hubs doesn't fold it neatly out of the dryer, it needs a quick iron. Despite an okay fit, material that stretches out a bit, and the potential for requiring ironing - I would recommend these pants for the sale price I purchased them for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I own 3 These pants are great. They are so comfortable that I use them as lounge pants. At the same time, they are presentable enough to run errands in or even go to a casual dinner in, and tough enough to hike in. I will certainly repurchase if/when my current selection wear out. I took a size 6, and I am a hip heavy 5'2, 130 lbs. I usually take size 2-4, so you may want to order up a size. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these - starting a collection! I absolutely love everything about the Anytime pant (and have about 6 pairs now) despite the fact that I do find they are prone to piling, even when following wash instructions. That being said, I still continue to buy these for their comfort and fit. I wear them to work, out running errands, on the trail, camping... Have the full length ones, capris, ankles, and shorts. Recommended for travel also! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from happy! These pants, as are all your pants, shorts, capris are just wonderful. They are light, and wash and wear well. I feel that this model can be dressed up also if you need to. Good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pants! I have now bought a second pair in a different color. This pants are my favorite!!! I generally wear a size 4 in the anytime line but sized up to a 6 because of the narrow fit and my athletic build. The 6 fits perfect. These are high quality and so comfortable. I wear them in all seasons comfortably. They are a great outdoor pant but also look good for a business casual look if needed. Highly recommend!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Women's Anytime Outdoor Ankle Pants - Small Purchased Women's Anytime Outdoor Ankle Pants size Small Cyprus. Pants run small, I normally wear size 2-4P, Columbia size Small fit my 5 ft tall frame perfect with pant length resting on my ankle bone. Pants fit like leggings, lots of stretch, nice quality but in my opinion run small and are slim cut. Purchased pants to wear in our wooded yard for gardening. Pants worked great and slim ankle cut kept critters out. Pants are comfortable for gardening and were not hot on an 85 degree day.
