Women's Anytime Outdoor™ Capri - Plus Sizes is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anytime Capri These are truly anytime capris. You can dress them up or down by changing your tops/ blouse and accessories. I have seven pairs. I live in these Capris from Spring till winter. I can dress them up and goto a high end restaurant or wear a T shirt and go hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Capris I ordered 2 pairs last year for a trip to India and was impressed at how cool and comfortable I was. Easy to pack and clean, I highly recommend these capris. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cross country functionality I purchased these for a trip to Arizona in November. They are breatheable, stain resistant, and so very comfortable. They pack up so thinly, can be rinsed in a sink, hung up to dry and be ready to go again in a short period of time. My only regret is that i need to wait until next Spring to wear them again in Minnesota!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Capri’s l’ve ever owned I bought these for a trip to Vietnam. They ended up being the only pants I wanted to wear. They were light weight, comfortable and stood up to the 95% humidity. I bought them a size up and glad I did as they fit perfect. When I came home, I purchased a second pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Capri trousers that fit - yay! Delightful and attractive, they also are tough. But, like all good relationships, they give a little. I use them for commuter cycling with a gel saddle pad and they rock. Perfect for non-size 0 folks who are active. I’m buying another pair as I write.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for travel These capris are perfect for travel, super lightweight and comfortable. I would like a little more taper in the leg but great length. The black does pick up a little lint but does brush off easily. It’s more of a matte finish to the fabric rather than shiny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So freaking comfortable! I love these capri's! They are lightweight and easy to roll up and pack for my upcoming trip to Africa! Really comfortable and easy to move around in, does not bind or feel restricted in any way. They have deep pockets so my phone doesn't fall out, a bonus. I am 6' tall and they are a great length for me. I only wish they came in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone should own a pair! These fit so well and look so nice I wear them everywhere! I work in a very busy cafeteria where I'm always on the move (walking, bending, twisting). I was looking for a pant that would move with me (without bunching up), dry quickly if they got wet, but look nicer than sweat pants. These exceeded my expectation!!! I am 5'4", 180 lbs and the size 16W fits me perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy lightweight shorts These are comfortable shorts for trekking. I hate shopping for pants of any type as I am large around my hips and upper legs but have an hourglass shape, so I was holding my breath when the parcel arrived as often pants will either fit around my waist and be too tight at the hips, or fit around the hips but be too large around the waist. I found these shorts to be slightly too large around the waist, but fit well in the hips. I found them a little long as I prefer shorts to hit at my knee, but one extra hem will easily fix that. I bought the Anytime outdoor full length pants at the same time and strangely enough I found the shorts version slightly larger/more relaxed in the fit. Overall I was pleased with the purchase and feel that the pants were good value for money. Thank you Columbia for doing outdoor activity clothing for the large woman!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight Any activity pant These pants are aptly named. I bought them for water activities, but use them for hiking and just general wearing around due to their being so light and comfortable. This pair seems ever so slightly smaller cut than the first pair I just bought, but still great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants! I was so happy with these pants that I was happy to find them in other colors and lengths. They are very comfortable, move nicely and breath well. I first discovered them when I went to Kenya in 2015. They were fabulous for that trip that I bought several pairs this year to replace my previous purchases. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy! I love these and hope to order another color soon. I got the black and they were super comfortable. I liked that I could easily pull the legs up higher to get more sun on my legs when I was lounging on our boat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, Love These Pants Can't say enough about these pants. Light material, fit true to size, stylish. I ended up buying 3 pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple for summer These have become a go to for me. I can dress them up for work, but they're comfortable enough to wear casually. I now own every color!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Capris I love these Capris and have several pairs. They are light weight, airy, and dry quickly. My only complaint is the pilling between the inner thighs.
Date published: 2017-05-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pants I love the look and feel of these pants! They are perfect for both work and play. They retain their shape and the fabric is great for traveling. I appreciate being able to buy quality clothes in plus sizes that make me feel special and like a valued customer. As soon as I tried them on I ordered a second pair. I ordered one size up for extra comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THESE!!!! These capris are absolutely amazing! Being a plus size it's hard to know what you buy online. I'm in between a 16 and an 18 and I bought these in a 16. They have a stretchable waistband so they're not too tight. The fabric is so lightweight and comfortable. I bought these for golfing but will definitely be using them for every day activities as well!!!
Date published: 2017-05-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anytime capris- plus Love the fit and the feel. When you are a plus size the fit from online buying is always a guess. These were perfect! Hasn't been warm enough in Wisconsin yet to wear them, but they feel like they will breathe and be perfect for the summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Live in These I am grateful for Columbia making women's sizes that fit so well. I practically live in these and wear them all the time - whether it's to the grocery store, or for a hike in my favorite state park. As always with Columbia products, these were well made with me as an outdoor person in mind.
Date published: 2017-05-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these capris - even fo reveryday wear I'm a bigger girl (size 18W), but that doesn't mean I'm not active. I want something that is easy to move in, doesn't stretch and get baggy and doesn't ride up and give me a wedgie. These capris are perfect. And they look dressy enough to wear on an everyday basis too. The fabric is lightweight and does dry quickly. I can put them in the dryer and they don't come out wrinkly. They look good with hiking boots and a t-shirt. Or with a dressy t-shirt, jewelry and my vans sneakers. Columbia doesn't always get sizing or cut right (I can't wear any of their hiking pants), and I'm in between a 1X and 2X, so I appreciate these capris so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable I bought 4 pairs of these capris and they fit great and are very comfortable. The only thing you need to know is that they are more a peddle pusher length than capri length. I am 5'7" and they come just below my knees. The just right capris are made a little longer and are capri length. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits well Fits very well. It is very hard to find plus size outdoor clothes that fit, and look nice. I ordered the size i normally wear.
Date published: 2017-04-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! Firstly, I was relieved to find that these were pretty true to size, if not a little bigger than I expected. They are very thin and I imagine would not hold up well to back country hiking, but that's not really why I got them. It's very hot where I live and I'm not a fan of wearing shorts, so I bought these. They are super comfortable and I love the color.
Date published: 2017-04-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants These are just what I was looking for. They pack well, come out lightly wrinkled but once they are on, they are great. I use these for everyday casual wear as well as days on the lake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Capris These capris are super lightweight, resist the sun and are waterproof. I'm ordering another pair for my upcoming trip to Europe. I would recommend these to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving Columbia wear I'm 64 yrs old and love the quality and how light they are. Very easy to move around in. I live near the beach and this is an every day wear for me. I'm buying another 2 pair.
Date published: 2017-03-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I'm wearing these expensive capris for the first time today in Mexico. They look OK but the fabric is far too thin and too stretchy. My inner thighs are chafed from walking around this evening in and out of AC because the fabric is too inefficient to wick any moisture away. The fabric is similar to swimsuit material but much thinner. What am I going to do with these capris? They are useless.
Date published: 2017-03-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2nd pair I got these in black last summer and wore them all around Europe. they repelled dirt, easy to clean and comfortable. I ended up wearing them more than I expected to. So when they came on sale I bought the Gray. Being 5'8" these are more like long shorts capri's the come to the top of my knees... but I like the length.
Date published: 2017-02-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfortable It's always a challenge finding plus sized clothing that is inexpensive, fits, and holds up well. These pants fit the bill. They are very light, which is great in the dog days of summer and they dry quickly after playing in the creek all day. Love them!
Date published: 2016-08-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Absolutely love these capris! I own two pair in tusk, a pair in grey, and a blue. These are my everyday, casual, summer go to wardrobe must haves! They are light and airy, have stretch but are still loose, wash easily, and seem to unwrinkle themselves! The fabric is water repellent, so I often wear while kayaking. Mine are getting a bit worn after wearing for 2 summers straight, so i need to reorder! I am seeing only tusk on the site right now, but truly hope Columbia stocks more for next season. They are the best! I also own 2 pair of Anytime Boot cut Pants, the knee length shorts which I love and recently purchased the skort (which is a tad too short for my plus size frame, but it will do for boating). You won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exactly what i was hoping for I hate ordering stuff online but took a chance and I'm glad I did. These are exactly what I was hoping for - stretchy, lightweight, comfortable, look nice. They do seem to run slightly large, particularly at waist, but they don't look baggy or unkempt. They fit my legs and behind great - not saggy, not tight, just right. Oh, and super love that they are actually capri length on me - I'm short (5'2") and they're a few inches below my knees instead of being ankle pants. Will totally buy more of these for my biz trip to FL next month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE PANTS! These pants are awesome - wish I had bought several more pairs. They are lightweight, fit perfectly, and are so comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great capris for traveling These capris are very very light and very comfortable. I bought a pair in every color. Looking forward to packing them because they will be very light in my luggage. The only thing I don't like about them is the drawstring. It's kind of unnecessary.
Date published: 2016-05-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from drawstring waist could use a makeover Order the size you would buy at a department store, The measurement charts here are not accurate. I had to return for smaller size. These are comfortable. The only thing I don't like about them is that the drawstring waist is too narrow for the size of the waistband that I feel it looks a little odd. If it was twice as wide then it would look more natural on the waist.
Date published: 2016-05-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Capris!! These are the best pants!! The material is soft yet durable. Dries fast and are not constricting at all. These are the best pants for traveling. Wash, hang dry and ready the next morning. I can't thank Columbia enough for making these pants in plus sizes. I have about 12 pairs of the Arch Cape capris in different colors that are still in excellent shape since I bought them back in 2008 but since having a baby a couple years ago, I'm not back to pre-baby weight yet so none fit. Pants that fit and fit right are hard to find for someone with a small waist but still has a baby belly in front. I thought I would have to live in yoga pants until I found these! Bought one pair, loved them... ordered 2 more for the summer. Thank you Columbia!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants These are very comfortable and versatile. They really stretch too. One word of caution, the hips kind of gap at the pockets, so I don't tuck my shirt into my pants. Not flattering on me, but not a problem with my tamaimi shirts un-tucked. Probably not an issue with less "hippy" women.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great capri for an active life I have 3 pairs of these capris and 3 pairs of the long version. They are great for warm weather and dry quickly when wet. I love the sun protection as well. My "shorts days" are over so these are a great alternative. My Columbia clothes are always a key component of my active travel wardrobe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit big but so happy I was worried about ordering pants online.. Sizes always very with every brand. I really wanted capris that have a drawstring and stumbled upon these. I ordered the gray, tusk and blue. I relied on the sizing/ measurements listed... And I'm wishing i sized down, but they will still work. They are just a little too big. Overall very pleased with my purchase. Super comfy and super cute. I will probably order the black next. I am 5'6, 180

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outdoor Capri I love these pants. It is so hard to find larger nice fitting capris and I would highly recommend this product. I did go up one size and they fit great not to tight or not to big.
