Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great capris I normally wear an 8 and the 8 fits. I ordered an 8 & 10 because of the reviews and ended up keeping both but need to wear a belt with the 10s. I really like the fit, material and length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for me My normal size was way too snug, I went up a size, and these are just awkward for me. The quality is good, soft fabric and super comfortable but they just look hideous on me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from There have been changes They fit snugger (it's not just me). The rise is a bit lower. I do like the elastic leg openings over the tie strings. Those never stayed tied. Could use a few more colors (not just a variety of neutrals). I would purchase again because the fabric is great for travel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from two sizes too small I wasn't able to wear these, though I like everything about them except the hem cord, which in unnecessary. They are about two sizes too small - I ordered using the sizing chart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from arch cape capri pants These pants are fantastic. Nice enough to wear shopping or out to lunch, rugged enough for beach combing. They are comfortable, roomy and stylish. I plan to get another pair and highly recommend them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY EXPERIENCE WITH COLUMBIA I can make this short by saying that I love Columbia clothing. When I purchase their clothing online, it is delivered well wrapped and always prompt. I am never disappointed in the quality of the fabric or the detail of the item. I guess if there is a negative, I do find that the clothing fits small.. but I honestly believe that because there is no spandex in the clothing, the fit is more of a perfect size. We all like to go down a size and with the spandex, sometimes you can. Columbia is more of an honest fit. lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly comfortable The fit looks very good (no sagging butt), but still absolutely comfortable. The back is cut high enough to anchor the pant in place, and that also keeps the slightly low-rise front from drooping. And the back waist ELASTIC makes them perfect! I should mention that I find the rise length of these pants to be like a "petite" size range, but that works well for my body type. And the front pockets are large enough to carry a wallet (very unusual for a pant that looks to be this slim). The light-weight fabric has the look and hang of a heavier cotton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite capris I love the Arch Cape III Knee Pants. They are primarily what I wear in the summer for work. They look professional enough to wear in the office and function well enough to wear in the field. They are light and cool and when they get wet they dry quickly. Which is perfect when working in a wet environment. They run true to size as far as Columbia stuff fits me anyways. The side pocket is nice because it is actually big enough to carry just about anything you need, it's functional and not just for looks. The one downfall I found was that the back pocket doesn't quite want to lay right after you have worn them for awhile so it opens up and you see the accent color that they lined the pocket with. Not a big deal to me I just put a stitch or two there (since I never use the pocket) and now it's not a problem. These also look great with the Columbia Drainmaker II shoe, which is a whole other review:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants I love all my shorts, pants, and jackets from Columbia. I won't buy anything but Columbia for myself or my family.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sizing Different Compared to Shorts I purchased the Arch Cape™ III Knee Pant and Shorts in the same size. The shorts fit great and I'm very happy with them, but the pants fit completely differently. They were tight in the upper thigh. I really wanted a longer option and I was disappointed by the fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just one disappointing feature I had difficulty rating these pants because I sent them back immediately after trying them on. I've been trying for years to find a replacement for the Columbia pants similar to these which I completely wore out. I thought I'd finally succeeded until they arrived and I tried them. The description said "Modern Classic" fit with regular rise. While the size was right, the rise was several inches below my navel. I certainly don't consider 3 1/2-4 inches below the navel to be a "regular rise." The pants come up high in back for bending. The combination was very unattractive on me. I am an older woman, but slim, and wear a size 2. I like waistlines to be an inch or two below my navel especially for pants I anticipate wearing for activities like hiking and biking. When the rise is very low like these pants, the description needs to be accurate.
