Women's Just Right™ Straight Leg Pant – Plus Size is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs big, few pockets After reading many reviews, I decided to order a size larger. When they arrived, they were not just big, but way too big. I think I may need a size smaller than I actually wear. Overall I liked the pants, except they lack pockets. I am taking a 2 week hiking trip to Alaska and realize these pants don’t have enough pockets for my needs. Will not be reordering them due to that. If pockets were not a concern, I would buy these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful I have now bought my third pair of these pants. I love the movement, comfort, pack easy, lightweight and awesomeness of the fit. My first pair are now 3 years old and look new. I hang them to dry and they dry quick. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stretch! These pants are great for outdoors! They are a light weight and water resistant material. I use mine for work every single day which includes hiking and zip lining in the rainforest in Alaska.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from go-to pants for long term travel - hiking, city, even business meetings I love these pants. The panels on the backside flatter your bum - for a range of figures. Because the zipper pocket is discreet (zipper and reinforced fabric are the same color as the pants) and the only logo is a small white "Columbia" on the rear - I can get away with wearing these with a button down shirt for business casual meetings. They also look great for city travel - not like hiking clothes. They are pretty lightweight - good for warm weather (and I paired with thin leggings for cold weather). For hiking and other active pursuits - the stretch is really nice. And these are really comfortable on long flights or bus rides because the waist band is nice and soft and the stretch works well. One possible drawback is durability. Because the fabric is so thin I can imagine it not holding up well if you are sliding along boulders or really rough on them. Mine began piling between the thighs after months of regular wear. The other drawback for hiking is the lack of pockets. There is just one zipper pocket on the thigh. But that lack of pockets allows a really flattering cut. So it's a trade off. These pants stretch out with time. To be fair I traveled for three years with two pairs of pants, one skirt, and one dress. So I was wearing them a lot. Also I was using hotel or full service laundry - so they might not have always been treated gently. (Though traveling in South America clothes are typically washed in cold water and hung to dry.) I had to replace them every 6 months to a year because they got baggy. But I like them so much I've bought 5-6 pairs (one gray, the rest black). The drawstring allows you to continue wearing them baggy but they don't look as nice. Also the sizing is irregular. When I replaced them I would fluctuate between sizes. Once I bought two pairs at the same time and I needed different sizes for the different colors. I wouldn't select these as primary hiking pants because I want more durable fabric and more pockets. But for versatility these are the best travel pants I have ever found!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable functional pants, but a little big These have become my favourite hiking, canoeing and camping pants. They repel water and dry quickly. The drawstrings at the bottom of the pants keep them up off the ground and prevent bugs from getting in. The only downside is they are a little on the large side and continue to stretch out the longer I have them, so now I can only keep them up using the waist drawstrings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love but stitching came undone I love these pants but after only 2 times wearing them (and they were a little big for me) the stitching started coming undone in the waist. I love love love the way they look and feel. I contacted customer care and they said no problem about returning. If it weren't for the stitching, I would have rated a 5 star.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sizing is Totally Off The thing about Columbia pants is that the sizing can be drastically different from item to item. I bought these in two sizes larger than other Columbia pants that are slightly large, and they're too small. I'm sure they're great pants, but they're being returned due to the sizing issue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short Rise I’m tall (5’ 11”) and found these pants on the short side, particularly in the rise. I bought them for a hiking trip and haven’t worn them yet but they are similar to other hiking pants I’ve bought so I assume they will work. Not sure how comfortable they will be, but my trip is tomorrow so not sending them back! If you are tall, these may not be long enough. But, they are better than the boot cut which have the wider leg bottom...and flap around your ankles like you’re trying to fly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just right for just right pants I lived in the capri version during the summer. I like the long pant version, but the ankle is too wide. I would also like pockets in the normal place instead of or in addition to the one on the leg.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy care travel pant I purchased this pant and another style for a month long vacation coming up. After trying them on I ordered a third pair. These are really comfortable and light. My pack test went well as these three take up less space than one of my regular pants in luggage. We are going with a single carry on and small backpack each. These fit the bill and will dry quickly when doing laundry in hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pant I've been looking for a light-weight quick drying pant for my birdwatching travel expeditions. I think this one is going to be perfect. The fabric is light weight, but not so tight that it shows everything that I am so conscious about in my legs (if it applies to you, you'll understand!) and generous enough to allow another layer underneath for colder locations on the same trip without being too baggy. I'm ordering a second pair now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday pants! I could wear these everyday and they go with everything. Like them so much I have purchased another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Look, Feel and Wearability I recently purchased a pair of these pants and loved the look, the feel and comfort so much, I immediately ordered another pair. I ordered my usual pant size (18W) and they fit perfectly. So nice to not have to do any tailoring. I will be wearing these on a 2 week road trip where lots of hiking and possible horseback riding will occur. I need the UV protection since I have LUPUS and it will be great to not have to worry about this aspect when I am outdoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just awesome These pants are just awesome in all regards. They are dressy enough to wear to work (here in Vancouver where the bar is dressier than yoga pants) you can cinch in the ties around the ankles which is great if you ride your bike. They are super stretchy, I pulled them up over my knees to go wading into the ocean with my kids and they stayed hitched up. They did get wet but dried fully within 10 minutes. And the stain proofing was a nice surprise, my period caught me unawares but without any treatment at all there is no stain after going through the wash. So I bought 3 more pairs. I have a big belly and big thighs, I would typically opt for size 26 pants so I could move comfortably in them but the 24s fit me and are in no way restrictive. (Hmm...for some reason this review is categorized under "incentive review" ...I purchased these having never tried them before, I paid full price and shipping, I'm just a random consumer like everyone else so not sure why it's saying that) (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pants ever! I absolutely love these pants. They are stretchy and very forgiving on a not so perfect body. I bought these for an upcoming trip to Iceland and I will be purchasing another pair. Very lightweight and great for packing. They can be used for hiking in the daytime and dress up in the evenings. The only complaint is the pocket on the leg. Not sure what it is for as I would rather have regular pockets. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pant Just received a pair of these pants. They look like they're going to be fabulous for hiking and touring around. I bought them for a trip where we're going to Machu Picchu and the Amazon jungle. I've bought two other pair that were a little bit wider flare also from Columbia sportswear but I had to go to one size smaller in this pant because the size that I had ordered for the other pants was too large for this pant so I went one size smaller. There's quite a bit of stretch in the pants as well. I really, really like them.There's quite a bit of stretch in the pants them. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous Fit but Tie is Cumbersome Great fitting pants in a very comfortable material. However, there is a tie at the waist which is cumbersome. If you are traveling, having to tie at the waist band first, then zip your pants doesn't work for me. In addition no pockets was also problematic. If these two issues were addressed, these would be fabulous pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these pants! I bought these in black and love them. The only things I would change is to have a little give in the waist band and a real pocket. They have an inside drawstring but the waist is static with no stretch at all for sitting. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not exactly what I expected I was excited to see another option for a long pant besides the boot cut pant. And the reviews were quite positive, saying you can dress the pant up if you want. Having gotten the pant, there are a few things I wish I would have known before I bought them. One is there is a zipper on the thigh of one of the legs. I don't remember seeing anything about that in the description. I got these mainly for being able to wear in the evening on cruises or while traveling, to pair with a nice blouse and jewelry for a dressier look. The zipper on the leg is not so great for me because it takes away from the dressier look. Also, the bottom hem of the pant has an elastic band in it. I was really surprised to see that! What the heck is that for? I certainly don't remember reading anything about that in the description. The fit is good, and I am glad to be rid of that annoying velcro back pocket on the boot cut pant which never stayed velcroed nicedly together. They will be okay but I wish the hem was normal and the zipper pocket was gone. I am going to look again at the description of the pant to see if there is any mention of those two things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and comfortable for everyday or travel. Bought the black pair and liked it so much I went back and purchased the grey ones. Would be perfect if they had one normal pocket around the waist instead of the zipped pocket on the leg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, functional and attractive I have purchased five pairs of these pants. They fit great and the light weight is perfect for active days--whether on the trail or just around town. The drawstring waist provides the added benefit of keeping the pants snug if you lose weight. I have short legs so wish they were a little shorter, but otherwise, no complaints!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants I have several pairs of these wonderful pants! They are an integral part of my work wardrobe but can easily be worn on the weekend for a variety of activities. My only wish would be for a Navy pair and then my collection would be complete. Did I mention that they wash and dry very quickly so are great for travelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants, wish there were pockets! I bought these because I've been a huge fan of the boot cut variety, and thought this would be a slimmer profile. The drawstring is on the inside of the waistband, which is a definite improvement. THe pants look and feel and fit GREAT. But they don't have pockets. No back pocket. No front pockets. Just a slightly awkwardly placed pocket on my left thigh above the knee, so no place to put a phone, keys or lip balm (the three things I always keep in my pockets!) Otherwise, I love them. I just wish they had pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable pant I bought these for a hiking trip and couldn't believe how comfortable they are so I ended up buying another pair. I am hard to fit with wide hips and smaller waist so love the drawstring in addition to button for an better fit. I was worried they would be too tight in my legs but they stretch just enough to give some slack. These pants are so incredibly comfortable to hike in. They move and stretch with you. If hiking in cold temperatures I had enough room for a base layer if needed since they are rather thin but kept me warm enough in 50 degree weather. These are a great lounge pant too. Love them and highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-to for all things! Love these comfortable yet sleek pants. There is a stretchy give for hiking and other active pursuits, but the pants don't bag or sag out. I wear them with nicer tops for work, and can even layer tights under them for outdoor use. All around winners!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing pants for curvy girl traveler I bought these pants and the Anytime Outdoor Boot Cut pant for a summer trip to England. I loved both but these were a phenomenal fit -- I couldn't believe that they were small enough at waist but still fit me at hip and thighs (a miracle!) I felt like I always looked "put together" and I was able to dress these up on the few times that we were at a "nice" restaurant. They also washed and dried quickly and easily -- a huge help since we were traveling light.

Quick hand wash & dry and ready for the trail the next day. Nice looking and I could pair it with a classy top for going out to dinner. I'm back at the Columbia website to buy two more pair!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Women's Just Right straight Leg Pants I literally live in a pair of these year round. They are comfortable, stretchy enough to be comfortable when sitting or bending over, and have taken the place of my jeans, linen or cotton slacks that had to be ironed. Perfect for running errands, too. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars, is the material, over time tends to attract lint due to the surface becoming a tiny bit fuzzy, but they are still serviceable. I just ordered three more pair to replace the 5 pair I been wearing almost non-stop since ordering them over a year ago.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I found my weekend pants These pants are great. I bought a pair in black, then had to have a pair in grey also. I wear a 22W in most pants and slacks, but I've found Columbia always runs a little smaller in Women's sizes. I'm 5'7", and these pants are the perfect length to wear with running shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel pants! I ordered these pants for a trip to the East Coast. They are amazing - super lightweight, dry quickly and you can layer long johns underneath them for added warmth. The fit is true to size and the length is perfect for my 5'4"frame. I highly recommend these pants for those who are travelling and want versatile, comfy pants for all sorts of activities! The only thing is that these pants can get static-y when it's really dry in some buildings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adjustable Pants, Great for Travel I bought 2 pair of these pants for a 10 day cruise to the Panama Canal. They were cool & comfortable on excursions, plus nice enough to wear on the ship. Generous fit with plenty of room in the waist, seat and thighs. The thin, soft fabric keeps them from looking bulky. Added bonus: the waist and ankle ties allow for a custom fit without any worries about hemming. Travelers can hand wash these pants and hang to dry overnight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Love These Pants! So comfortable! Bought these pants for my trip to Iceland. These pants fit true to size and still fit nicely even when wearing my wool layer underneath (which was necessary during my trip to Iceland in March). They were extremely comfortable for hikes to glaciers and waterfalls and riding in the car for hours. I highly recommend these pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Pants These pants are my favorite of several different brands. Please don't xhange the cut any time soon. I have long legs and hips and I feel comfortable in these pants.. Not vacuum sealed or left wondering why my pants are tight in the thigh and loose in the calf like with other brands. They stretch when I wear them for a while but not too much. Just enough to look like comfortable, well -fitting, straight leg pants.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from weird seam down the front I'm tall (6'), and it's hard to find a plus size pant with enough length for my long legs. I was very happy with the length of these, and the fit. Unfortunately, the construction was such that the middle seam down the front of the leg rubbed quite heavily on my knee (the stitching on the inside front of the leg is quite substantial), so I had to return them. Fix the stitching issue and I will buy these pants in a heartbeat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Pants I just ordered a second pair of these pants. Very light weight fabric has a slight amount of stretch. They have enough seaming to hold their shape and not become baggy. I have used them for travel, working out and as pajama bottoms. Thank you Columbia for providing plus size active wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thinner than they look. First off, I love this pant. I wish it came in tan or a lighter color than black and charcoal. I am in Southern Utah and this is perfect for hiking out here for the Fall. I think these would be too hot for summer hiking out here even though they are lightweight (note they look like they are made of sturdier fabric in the picture). Also, these made great pants for climbing, longer to suit cooler temps, but light enough to not feel too cumbersome when climbing.
