Women’s Just Right™ Straight Leg Pant is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 209.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versitile Pants I love these pants and wear them almost everywhere. They are comfy, stay new looking, and don't require much more than wash and wear. Great for traveling!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, function and Style! I purchased these originally for traveling but find I am wearing them for daily errands and physical activity. They are very comfortable and figure flattering. The quality is excellent, the zipper pocket is located well and ensures you will not loose your items. Great value for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grandma needs pants in the sun! In the quest to be protected from the sun (new development in my life), I ordered the “Just Right” straight legged pants. Overall, a winner. Some Columbia products run small, these do not. They are keep me cool, offer 50+ sun protection, and I don’t have to bathe in sunscreen. So, a winner overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and comfortable Although I haven't yet worn these on the trail, my first order fit so well (size 12) that I ordered another pair. My only concern is that they are a little long, even though I am 5'9".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST PANTS I live in these attractive, comfortable pants! They are good in three seasons since sun, wind and rain resistant. They dry quickly and don't wrinkle when packed. The fabric is soft so drapes nicely. There are no pockets, except one small one on the left thigh, so no extra bulk around the waist and hips. They are flattering because not baggy. I only wish there were other colors besides the three offered, such as navy, dark grey, and a light grey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfortable! I bought these pants to wear for general use including hiking and fishing. I wanted something comfortable that still looks nice and doesn't scream "outdoor pants". These pants are my new favorite and I will be ordering more. I genuinely think they are more comfortable than my leggings. My only complaint though is that they are slightly loose in the waist and even though they tie I still feel like I have to pay attention to them. I am tall (mostly leg) and these pants were the perfect length. I wear a 29 or a size eight in most pants and purchased a size 8 in these and they fit great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great travel pant! Lightweight fabric super for summer travel -- so much cooler than standard cotton pants. Only issue is one that is common to many washable clothes -- seams pucker after washing, even in cold water on front load wash & wear cycle. Pants would appear dressier and more appropriate for dinner if the seams were smooth. Runs a bit large -- I normally wear 10 pants but I wear an 8 in this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I own 6 pair:) I own 6 pairs of these they fit nice with wonderful fabric that doesn't wrinkle. I can't have any UV sun and live in Hawaii so these UPF 50+ pants are my go to everyday. Dress them up with a nice top or just day to day wear. They dry quickly and you can machine wash or hand wash if you're on a trip. I'm 5'3, 141# and size 10 short is perfect no hemming. They also have a tie in the waist in case you loose weight, I started with 12 Short and lost 11# but I can still wear them by synching the drawstring waist:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants I was reluntant to spend the money on good pants but I am so glad I did. The are very light weight, comfortable, and look great. I bought them to wear hiking but they could go almost anywhere. Other reviews said they run a little large so I down sized and they fit great. I like that they don’t scream hiking pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants! These pants are great. They can be used for activities from hiking to casual dress up. The material is soft and light. I am 5'3", 150 lbs and the 10 short fits great! So happy they have UPF protection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful pants perfect UPF 50 sun protection After a transplant, I now have an extreme sensitivity to UV sun and I live in Hawaii of all places. These pants are perfect UPF 50 and block 98% of the UV rays. I've tested them with my UV meter. I can wear these all day along with a UPF 50 shirt and hat and I don't break out in a rash. Without good quality UPF 50 clothes I rash up after about 1 hour outside. I've tried other UPF 50 clothes from other big manufactures but they are not as good as Columbia's. I now own 5 pairs of these in 3 different colors. They can be dressy or casual they have a great look and feel. I'm 5'3" and 143# and the 12 Short fits great. My weight fluctuates but they have a draw string in the waste so you can tighten them up if necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to move in I bought these pants to climb in and I absolutely love them! They move with you so well and don’t feel heavy. The fabric also feels very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and lightweight I love these pants so much! I bought them for a summer trip to Europe. Love them so much I own 2 colors and am considering going back for a 3rd. Extremely flattering! Be warned that they do run large because of the stretch factor. I am normally a size 6 and due to recommendations from other reviewers I ordered a 4 which fits perfectly - not tight at all. I am 5'4" and got the short length. I wash in cold water and hang dry, they dry in a flash and are great for hot weather because they are lightweight and breathe. In case anyone is wondering I am over 50 so would say these are great no matter your age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light and comfortable The products material comfortable and sturdy. I was nervous about doing some climbing and scrambling in them but they turned out to be perfect. The only minimal thing I wish was different is that the pocket was a little bigger. But overall great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right Straight Leg Pant I love the fit and feel of these pants. They are quite comfortable, the right length, and they look great as well! I have worn them several times for hiking and birding. They wash well. I think I may get a second pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants!!!! I have never owned any Columbia Sports wear. I had always bought Prana, which i still love too. But, I was gifted a pair of the just right pants. Fell in love with them!!!!! I wear them to yoga, running, hiking!! I had to buy myself another pair. I also bought a pair of columbia running shorts. Love them as well. Yes, i would recommend this product Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite “go-to” pants Love, love, love these pants. They are as comfortable as yoga pants, but look a whole lot better. Super versatile. I wear them to work and play. They are my favorite “stretchy pants”.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy and light weight I love the feel, length was good. I ordered a size 6 short. At 5’1” I weigh 129lbs, the pants are too loose. I’ve tried on pants at their outlet and fit well in a size 4. However one style was way too tight in a 4 so I aired on the side of caution being the material is thin. Other than that I’m very happy with this style. I have a curvy figure little in hip area very round butt. Hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Fitting...Super Comfortable These pants were awesome, very comfortable and fit perfectly. I have a difficult time finding pants that fit well due to larger thighs from cycling and weight training. These meet the challenge. Will buy an additional pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Pant Ever I bought these pants a couple of years ago to travel. I was immediately hooked. I have bought at least 15 pairs because I wear them almost every day. They are so comfortable and do not wrinkle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Travel Pants! I now own 3 pair of these pants and every time I wear them I not only feel like I'm in pajama pants, but also never fail to get compliments and questions about where I purchased them. They run true to size and wash beautifully (never fade or shrink and dry quickly in hotel rooms). I travel a lot and always take 2 pair with me wherever I go. The price is great, the quality outstanding.
Date published: 2017-12-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit Is Great For A Thinner Pant I’m 5’7 145 and the size 10 regular fits perfectly. The material is thin so I’ll need to wear thermals in the cooler months. There are no belt loops but there is a drawstring. The only pocket is on the outside of the left leg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Perfect! I have never had pants that fit me so perfect. I live in Florida, so these pants are perfect for our very warm weather. I notice the availability of sizes and colors has diminished. I hope this doesn't mean that you will not longer be offering these pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome hiking pants Super comfortable pants! Love that they have a drawstring to keep them up. Very lightweight, but were very comfortable in 30 degree weather while hiking. Would definitely recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them These are super comfortable, they wrinkle easily but they're worth it.
Date published: 2017-11-12
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lightweight but a couple reservations Great lightweight hiking or casual pant. I have worn these extensively backpacking, canoeing, hiking, and around town. Two cons: 1) the drawstring in the waist is stretchy so they don't stay up very well, bunch up in the front, and you have to keep tying them tighter throughout the day 2) the fabric pills badly when worn and washed a bit, and isn't water resistant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right Pant Just right is the perfect travel, city pant even for a desert dweller. The adjustable waist & ankle makes it a truly great fit for every day wear. Highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right Women’s Pants I love these pants. They’re so comfortable. My sister bought some for me originally and I’ve purchased 3 more pair myself, along with the capris. I have a friend who liked them so much, she bought some for herself.
Date published: 2017-10-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Pants I seldom write reviews but I have to tell the world how great these are. I have 5 pair and when my sister tried mine on, she ordered 2 for herself. We both took them on our 2 week European trip and left our jeans at home. While getting caught in a torrential seaside downpour in Portsmouth England, our Acadia Columbia raincoat and these pants saved the day. Quick to repel water and quick to dry. Never wrinkles. They are my go to for work, causual and dress, with a pair of Tieks flats. True to size. A bit thin on the panty line, but easily covered with a shirt/tunic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy pant, but poor stitching I love the fit of these pants. Super stretchy and light-weight, but I recently wore them rock climbing and came back at the end of the day with all the stitching coming undone. Super bummer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable These pants are super light and comfortable. They were perfect for fishing on the river or from a boat. They are also perfect coverage for hiking and keeping bugs off your legs. The fit is great, just loose enough and a little stretchy. My only complaint is that they don't have traditional pockets, only a small little zipper one down the leg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants but too short length for tall gals Well made. Nice soft and movable material. I am 5'9" and I ordered the size 10 Regular Length. This size on me was: too big overall, and too short. Sadly I returned them :( Columbia: Please Make LONG LENGTH for us taller gals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants for traveling! I just returned from Switzerland wearing the two pants (grey and black) the entire time. They are a great fit. I am 5'7" and 138 pounds and purchased size 8. They dried quickly and are nice enough to wear adventuring during the day and in the evening with a nice top. I never write reviews and the reason I am doing it is because I would LOVE to see these in other colors. A light tan and a lighter grey would be a wonderful addition!!! Not having pockets give the pants a nice clean look. the pocket on the leg was the perfect spot for the card to my room or a ticket for the train and tram. So, please...more colors to chose from...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very light weight material. I ordered these for fall walking but the material is more suited for a spring/summer day or evening. Very thin, slightly big for size and high waisted. Not a dark charcoal colour but a light grey. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fabric Pills after Several Washings I took a pair on a three week trip to Europe because they pack small & light, wash & dry easily. By the end of the trip the fabric on the front thighs was pilling. The pants were very comfortable. I wish they came in a long length. I am 5'8" and they are a little short.
Date published: 2017-08-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My 2nd pair Bought 2nd pair, 2nd color because 1st is quite nice. Material - pleasant on skin, slides readily over knees when hiking, and dries quickly. Pants are a good balance of warm enough yet not hot. Short length is a great plus - just right for 5'2". My wish? That leg pocket was a tad bigger. That waist was smaller so cinching waist tie is not needed as much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to casual pants I love these pants and have purchased several pair; I would purchase again ... and again.
