Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect every day capris for the Arizona desert I discovered the capris a couple of years ago in Palm Springs at the outlet mall. I must have at least 6 pairs and are the only capris I wear when it's hot. They are comfortable, wash excellent and pack easily. I just wish they would make more colors!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not capris! These pants hit me right below the kneecap. Not attractive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Capris These are my go to capri in the deep south! It gets nasty humid down here, and these dry very quickly and don't get sticky like other similar products. On top of that, I have the shorts and boot leg pants as well because the fabric is so comfortable and I get compliments on how they look all the time! My only issue with them has been with the blue capris; I wore them under some newer sweatpants for a morning and they pilled up in the croth area pretty bad. I think they mostly grabbed fuzzys from the sweatpants, but the fabric on those has not held up as well as the other colors. Might have been operator error, and it has not deterred me from buying more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Fourth Pair As a quality, day to day summer pant these are great! You do have to find 'your fit' but when I did, I settled in and bought a few pairs. They are lightweight, moisture absorbing, dressy enough to wear to a casual work space but then straight to the beach after. I've had one pair for 4 years and just now I'm debating whether to make them my 'old pair'. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Capri! I am a physical education teacher and love to wear these capris to work. They look nice and are very functional with all the moving that I do at my job. I have them in EVERY color! I usually wear a size 6 or 8 and I got these in size 8 and they fit great, not too tight but not too loose. They have a draw string to help make the waist tighter which is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Anytime Outdoor Capris are the best pants available! The Anytime Outdoor Capri pants are my favorites! In my hot & humid climate, they are the coolest and most comfortable pants I have found. The fabric is so light it's almost like wearing nothing! The side pockets are great for doggy bags, cell phones, etc. I especially love the fact that I can wash them out by hand, hang to dry, and they're ready to wear in hours. They look great on, and I always get comments ('where did you get those; what make are they?) It took a couple of tries to find the correct size (I thought I would need plus size), but the 16's are perfect, and I can also wear the 14's. I have several black pairs, and one each of the other colors. I do wish there were more colors. I am now retired, disabled but stay as busy as I can. The ease with which I can put these pants on, and take them off is important and the zipper/snap/ties makes it very easy. I also have a few pairs of the longer style, and am just as happy with them. I have put all my other pants away (storage), as nothing beats these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These capris are very comfortable. The capris move with you as they have stretch. The Omni shield is great for people who spend a lot of time outdoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best long shorts These are excellent long shorts. I have them in every color. They are light, durable, comfortable and look great. Highly recommend for activities,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in every way! These are the perfect length. The fabric is a little stretchy and amazingly soft. These are so comfortable, I immediately ordered three more pair in various sizes and they are literally all I wore all summer! I wash them separately as they can get pulls though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features These capris are easy to wear. They are comfortable when moving in any direction and give when sitting or squatting. They have a tie so that a belt is not needed and provide a custom fit. I have them in every color. They can be dressed up nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Athletic Trainers As an athletic trainer, I work indoors, outdoors, sitting, standing, upside down, inside out, etc.. These pants I own in several colors and lengths and they are perfect for any type of situation. They are comfy, stretchy, cool, soft, and durable, and have pockets. I recommend these to anyone looking for comfortable work pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the capris I was looking for Criteria: comfortable, weather-resilient (just in case), not too casual (workout leggings aren't working for me anymore) and durable yet soft. These are it! A friend bought a similar pair and I had to have it. I've looked everywhere and all I found were either too frumpy or too sporty. These are perfectly in-between. Thanks, Columbia!

Date published: 2017-09-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and well made I purchased the first pair in the store and was so pleased I ordered the second pair on line. The material is soft, a little stretchy, and comfortable. I'm 5'6" and the length is perfect for running around and I've also worn these capris to golf. It's pretty much warm all year long where I live so these capris are perfect! I am between a size 8 and 10 and opted for the 10 which is slightly big around the waist but there is tie around the waist which keeps it snug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy activewear I use these pants for sea kayaking, as they move nicely with me, dry quickly and are a perfect length for wading in shallow water. The light color keeps me cool in summer. This is my second pair. The first, a navy pair, I wore regularly for two years. Definitely a go-to capri!
Date published: 2017-09-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved these pants! I purchased these pants several years ago. They quickly became my "go to" warm weather choice. I liked them so much I purchased two more pairs of the same pants. They wash like a dream, dry quickly, are easy and light to pack for traveling and the draw string waist makes for a comfortable fit all day.
Date published: 2017-09-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product was just what I wanted Great fit. The material was soft, light weight, stretchy and breathable. Quick dry was great. I liked the pockets and drawstring. Length was perfect. I bought second pair in alternate color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely wonderful I had never ordered capri pants from Columbia before so I wasn't too sure what to expect! I ordered this pair in both colors and I am so glad that I did! They fit perfect, have just the right amount of stretch, and wash nicely. If more colors were available, I'd be ordering even more! Very versatile! Dress up or wear casual. So comfortable, and lightweight. Sizing runs true/accurate. I highly recommend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Anytime Outdoor Capri I bought a pair these outdoor capris in an outlet store in TN to go ziplining in. Loved them so much that I went online to see if they had them in any other colors. Very excited to find them in a Khaki color(Tusk). Can wear to work or for outdoor activities. Very confortable too!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Bought 3 Pair I loved the weight, fit and wearability of these so much that I bought 2 more pair. I could wear them every day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these pants I am 5 feet tall, 108 pounds and wear petite small clothes. These capris are size 4 and are a perfect fit. I have purchased 3 pair (black, grey, and light brown). They are comfortable to wear around the house as well as walking and jogging. They also will travel really well, light weight and easy to wash. They go well with Columbia long sleeve shirts
Date published: 2017-07-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second pair, and I still love them. I have found that this capri pant is perfect for so many things -- everything between sporty/casual and dressier. Because it's black, it goes with my nicer summer tops for a casual evening out or even a bit nicer spot with a scarf for pizazz. I wash all my Columbia clothes in cold water/gentle cycle with a good delicates detergent to protect the finish and extend their life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent. I bought these for work because I'm always running around like crazy! Hey are excellent. They are a little big though. Will definitely buy more :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for rafting, dry very quickly I recently purchased these in Columbia store to wear on a whitewater rafting trip while in Colorado. I got soaked and was completely dry within a few minutes. So far they have served the purpose and they are comfortable. I am 5'4" and 140 lb, size 6 was a little snug, size 8 is a little big and the pockets poof out making my hips look bigger (in size 8). However, I'm willing to look past that for their comfort and ease of movement. Have not tried them in the heat of Texas yet though. Hoping to purchase a second pair in different color. I also hate to see the negative reviews about the fabric and quality, especially since I haven't worn them a second time. Did not receive any incentives to write this review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Capris Ever I have many pairs of capris that I wear all summer. Most are jeans fabric, which are not very giving or forgiving. I have them in most colors. I have a trip planned in August and wanted something more comfortable for a lot of driving. Something that would not wrinkle yet be functional. I love these pants!!! I recently went to Fla in all this heat and they never failed me, always looked great! So Comfortable and wash and wear so fast. So that's why I have ordered another pair, Unfortunately there are limited colors available now, but next year I ll be stocking up!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Florida I purchased my first pair of capris Last Summer. I liked them so much and they fit so well that this year I have ordered a pair in every color offered. Great for everyday casual wear or for travel. The fabric does not wrinkle and dries quickly after washing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Capris! These capris are very comfortable and dry quickly. They are great for being outdoors. I also love wearing them when I have a day off with the kids because dirt wipes off easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the coolest. Can't beat these for comfort, fit and style. The fabric is amazing for active wear in hot humid weather and it launders beautifully. Wish they came in long pants too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to pants I love the fabric in these capris. The pants are so light and cool. They are near impossible to wrinkle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for my body type I was excited to receive this pair of pants and crushed to find the rise was much lower than I had expected. The fabric was wonderful - there just wasn't enough of it for my body type. I thought I'd chosen a style that came up to my waist. I do not recommend this product only because of the style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Capris I was looking for something between long pants and shorts and found the Anytime Outdoor Capris at a local sporting goods store. The sizing was perfect for me. They are extremely light weight and very comfortable, the perfect length for me. After purchasing the first pair I went to the Columbia web site and ordered 3 more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Round Great Capris I can wear them to work with a nice top and sandals. Can wear them with a tank top and sneakers. Material is nice and lightweight, fits great. Love this color too! I also have black and tusk. Best Capris Ever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile, comfortable pants I love these pants. I have two capri's and two pair in full length. They wear and wash well. I love the drawstring and snap closure. My only suggestion for feedback is to work on pilling after 6 months of wear. The pilling cleans up fairly well with a sweater shaver.
Date published: 2017-06-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and comfortable I purchased several colors of these shorts, they are very comfortable and last a long time. I bought one pair before about 2 years ago and purchased more of these when I saw them go on sale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would have been 5 stars except for Bad wrinkles after drying. Remove these immediately after dryer stops to avoid a mess!
Date published: 2017-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wear to work daily! To say I love these pants is an understatement. I wear them to work every day. The addition of the draw string is great for being between sizes. Water runs off of the fabric so if you have a minor spill you won't have stains. They wick away sweat so that I'm comfortable. Ever since I found them, they are for sure my choice of pant/capri to wear to work 40 hours a week!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect capris These have become my favorite capris. I really like the length and the lightweight fabric make these perfect for warmer weather and the stretch is just right. I now prefer these to shorts.
