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.

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.

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 Favourite My favourite pant, can go from casual to dressy. Ordered a second pair in case Columbia stopped making them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great all around pant This pant is very versatile and great for packing for long trips. I am always concerned about UV and this pant does the job for me. Easy to care for while travelling. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

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.
Date published: 2017-08-27
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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too Large It was annoying to pay to return when other products fit fine in this size.
Date published: 2017-08-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel and hiking pants I now own 6 pair of these pants, two of each color. I use them for traveling as they look great, wash wonderfully and dry quickly. Also, I use them for hiking or for everyday use. Very versatile, and I can wear the darker colors out for dinner with a nice top. The fit is great as I have long legs, and the length is fine. I hope they continue this style, perhaps offering more colors!
Date published: 2017-08-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Columbia pants for outdoors or indoors The pants are very comfortable and can be worn as slacks since the leg pocket is hard to see in black color. I wished there were regular side pockets, but then it would not be as sleek a fit. It seems to wear well. Most wrinkles seem to hang out over night. Water beads up. Have not washed it enough to see if it is water repellant all the time. My other pairs of Columbia pants did lose their repellency over time.
Date published: 2017-08-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy something else Fit: I really liked the way these pants looked and fit in the store. But I didn't notice that they lack pockets! Which is really annoying. As I wore them, they seemed to stretch out a bit. Water: They are not waterproof and when they get wet (rain, sweat), they seem to absorb the water, then suction themselves to your leg. Not the best feeling, nor the most practical. (Jeans or regular yoga pants would keep your legs drier.) Durability: I have had this pair for less than six months, and the fabric is pilling and one of the seams is busting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Everyday Active Pants These are my favorite hiking pants! They are great in a variety of conditions. Light wind and rain are not a problem, but not too hot to wear in the summer. I love the fitted style; athletic but not skin tight.
Date published: 2017-06-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pants This has been my favourite pants for travelling. They are light weight and do not take a lot of space to pack. The pants look great in any occasions. The Short inseam fits me perfectly. I would like to buy the Tusk color in Short inseam which are always out-of-stocks. Please stock up more of the Tusk color in short inseam. They are in high demand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They Really Are "Just Right" I am very happy with the fit and comfort of the pants. They have a updated stylish look too. I believe that these will easily become my "go to" pants for travel and outdoor activities. The fabric is thin and comfortable. I ordered the size 6 in Tusk. The only drawback is the lack of side pockets, but they do have a sleek look without the pockets.
Date published: 2017-06-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Just Right" Pants! These pants live up to their name - they are just right for just about any occasion! I've worn them for work, hiking, and just hanging out. They do run large though...in other Columbia pants, I am a size 6/8, but with these I am a size 4, so make sure you account for that!
Date published: 2017-06-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy! I very seldom write reviews, but since I LOVE these pants, I had to let others know about this wonderful product. I wear these pants on the golf course, hiking, and perfect for traveling. They are lightweight, so comfortable and look good! I now own three pairs!
Date published: 2017-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and Comfortable I bought my first two pair of these great pants for a 5 day hike in the Scottish Highlands last year. They are lightweight and provide good ease of movement, wash well, and dry quickly. They are now also my flying pants! So comfortable, even on a 10 hour flight. Work well for road trips, too! And I can wear them with a nice top out to dinner. Great for travelling, and I can't say enough nice things about them. I have bought 5 pairs in various colors, and I highly recommend them!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Just Right I bought these pants in black to serve dual functions: comfort for trail use and suitability as dressier pants for evening. I chose the size based on reviews on this site and others. I'm 5'7 and 135 lb. I also purchased the Just Right Skort in the same order in the same size (10). I've bought 3 pair of Columbia pants in this size and all fit well. I missed noticing when I ordered that these pants have but a single pocket located on the thigh. No back pockets, no slant front pockets. I could live with that...but can't live with how large these run in the waist. Even though there's a drawstring inside the pants, cinching it up and tying it produces an unattractive lump in the front. Confusing matters on sizing, the same size skort is too tight. Go figure. By all accounts, Not Just Right for me. Both items will be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants I love these pants! They are going to be perfect for our upcoming vacation - light weight, easy to pack. The fit is exactly as pictured and are very comfortable. I actually bought the black pair as well.
Date published: 2017-06-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants for everyday I have been purchasing Columbia pants for a while, and just right pants are that: just right. The pants don't hug my legs and don't ride up anywhere. The material is quality the pants are well made. The small zipper pocket on leg is just enough for a credit card or cash. I have the Tusk color and the Grill color and they are my go to pants. If there were more colors I would try another color.
Date published: 2017-06-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pant I have two of this pant and they are wonderful for hiking. The fabric is breathable and has a stretchy material. It dries fast after a light rain. I would recommend this pant to anyone who is doing light or heavy hiking. I am a geologist and I would wear these pant for 8+ hours a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this pants This is my 3rd pair and wish there were more colors to select from, we travel a lot so not only pack well but they are easy to take care... more colors please... thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistently Just Right I am 5'4" (and about 150 pounds). I've been ordering & wearing these pants for several years. The size 12short fits my curvy frame well and the short length is just right too. It is hard to find pants that fit me and these have become a staple in my wardrobe. The sizing has been consistent over the years. The drawcord at the hem allows you to pull them up to the knee, which is helpful if you are crossing a stream or just too hot. I have ordered the "just right skirt" and it seems to fit exactly like the pants (size wise). Thanks, Columbia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right Straight Leg Pants These pants are just what I wanted,very light and extremely comfortable. I suggest ordering a size smaller than you wear. I plan on ordering every color. I'm sure everyone will be very pleased with this great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best travel pants As a travel writer, I need clothes that pack light and tight, are comfortable on the plane and lightweight and cool for sightseeing. My two pairs of Just Right straight leg pants are just the ticket for my trips. Besides all that, they are a nice-looking casual alternative to jeans for going out at night.
