Women's PFG Armadale™ Ankle Pant is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great pants, inconsistent sizing I bought these originally in-store in Black and loved them, so I saw online they came in others colors - bought the Blue and the Red. Very different fit in both of these colors - Much Bigger, looser. I chose to keep them anyway as they were on sale and ok enough for knocking around the neighborhood, lightweight and easy for hot NYC summers. Very odd that although I bought the same size in the 3 colors, the Blue and the Red ran so much larger, the Blue even more so than the Red. If this style had been offered in a size down, I would've exchanged.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved these, just too small! I ordered these for the versatility- I am an outdoorsy girl and love pants that can go from work to a climb! These pants are so cute they actually would have done great with heels too. They definitely deflect both water and UV rays. I am slowly building up an arsenal of Columbia pants for their versatility, and loved the slender elegant style of these pants especially. I know Columbia runs a little small, however I was hopeful I could make a 6 work, I wear between a 6-8 in other brands. Got these on sale (6 was the only size left) and LOVED how they fit other than they were just slightly too snug to make work. I am 5'7" and 140lbs, for reference to anyone else who needs it! I would have been perfect in an 8, however that size is not currently available, I hope these pants come back next season, they are top of my list!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hike pant meets work pant I truly love these pants, so much I bought two! Most dry-fit, technical/hiking oriented pant SCREAM hiking pant from a distance. They’re baggy and hardly flattering. While sometimes those baggy, convertible hike pants fill the need, it’s nice to have another option. These are slim fitting but with some stretch. I was worried about them being a tad too tight for actually hiking in, but with the slight stretch, I find them to be extremely comfortable. They also don’t stretch TOO much like some stretch materials can leading to a shapeless blob. The slim, ankle length cut mimics on-trend work pants, to the point where I actually can wear these to work. No one really notices they aren’t actual slacks (so long as I have the Columbia logo covered); the material lays nice, don’t wrinkly excessively, and is easy to clean. The only down side to this style, is it comes with the customary lack of pockets to achieve the form fit lay, but between packs and jackets, it’s an okay trade off. They’re cute and versatile, I think they’ll become a standard travel wear they’re flexible to both looking nicer, and going hard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect summer pants I was looking for casual summer pants to wear to Seattle. These are great. Pants are lightweight and comfortable as well as smart looking! They can be used for shopping, or walking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable & Stylish I love this pants! I own 4 pairs and I wear them all the time during the summer. They are comfortable, flexible, and stylish. You can dress them up or down. They are very light, easy to wash and dry up very quickly, perfect for traveling! I will like more (darker) colors

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I love these pants!!! They are lightweight and they move! I've bought 2 colors so far and have worn my blue ones to pieces! Sometimes I wear them as work pants and just wear a shirt long enough to cover the Columbia logo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PFG armindale ankle pants I bought these pant a year and 1/2 ago from a friends referral. I was taking a cruise and she told me they are great travel pants. Oh boy was she right theses are great everything pants. They fit well - wrinkle resistance. Extremely comfortable AND very slimming. I now own 5 pair of these pants. One in almost every color. You can wear them as dress pants or hiking pants, very versatile!!! I have also got my daughter and mom hooked on these pants. LOVE- Love ❤️ them

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Comfy! The only reason I give this product 4 out of 5 stars is the tiny pocket. I already had another pair in a different color, so the lack of pocket certainly wasn't a deal breaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants! Last year I got a black pair and decided to get a second pair in navy this year. These pants keep me cool in the summer heat. They stay wrinkle free and hold their shape all day. They are definitely my favourite pants - I love the length and their slim look. They also wash like a dream and are great for travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite pants This is the 4th pair of pants in 3 colors that I have bought. They are so comfortable. Lightweight. Don't wrinkle. Have worn them to casual dinner, at the beach, and in the rain today. They do exactly what they say they are going to do. I love them. Now...if they only came in a true denim color, I could save my jeans for when it gets cold here. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Lightweight Pants I ordered a size bigger than I normally wear in other brands and it worked just fine. These pants are amazing! They are lightweight, super comfortable and just great all the way around. I believe I could wear them 24/7 and be just fine. Will defiantly purchase in other colors. They are perfect for the South Georgia summers that I deal with daily!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pants! I am obsessed with these pants and I wear them to work all the time! I know their function is "fishing" but I can honestly say I haven't been fishing in them, and I think they make excellent dress pants. They don't wrinkle or stain, and they hold up extremely well in the wash. I have two pairs of the pants and I want every color! Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfort that looks good I bought these to wear to work--my attire is casual but no jeans or shorts and I wanted something light for summer. I got the black and navy blue. I love them. They are SO comfortable and even after wearing them a few times (I have to PAY to do laundry) they still look great. They're also great for hiking. My only complaints: The tab closure in front sticks out and looks a bit awkward with tight fitting shirts. They attract lint and cat hair (but come clean easily with a lint roller). And finally, Hello panty lines! Overall though, great pant Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Colors Please! My Favorite Pants I LOVE these pants, I bought them in every color and will buy every color made next year! I travel a lot and these are so lightweight and easy to pack but they dont look like it on. The fit is like an expensive designer ankle pant, slim fit and extremely flattering on. 5 Stars from me. PLEASE MAKE MORE COLORS!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too small, length is too short also I ordered the same size in these pants that fit me in 4 other styles of shorts and pants from Columbia (size 4), yet these are too tight in the waste and rump. Also, they are supposed to be above the ankle, yet they are about 1/2 inch too high, and I am a person with short legs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-purpose pants! These were great - I am consistently an 8 or 8-petite in Columbia pants and ordered the 8. They are a perfect fit and length. These pants are very flattering and did not feel too tight around the calves. Dog hair will stick to them, but that's to be expected with this type of material. I will wear these for hiking, weekends, they can be dressed up or down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants I bought these pants being a PE teacher. They are very diverse for the workplace, at home, and outdoors. The fit was great even being short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the love of pants!!! I just came back from a week-long Mediterranean Cruise and am so pleased with this product. It packs well, it can be easily dressed up or down, and the lightweight material made it comfortable to wear on hot/humid days. When we disembarked, it was raining heavily and to my surprise, it worked as advertised! It repelled water and it dried within the 15-20 minute taxi ride to the airport. The only con that I found was how big the reflective logo was above the back left pocket which they don't show in the photos provided. It makes it somewhat challenging to dress up but is still doable with the right length top. Overall, I highly recommend this product. I originally purchased these pants in black and have fell in love with these pants so much that I purchased two more in black and one in collegiate navy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Are they pants, are they leggings? I don't know but they are comfy! I would call these a hybrid legging/pant. A skinny fit, with comfortable material that has a bit of stretch to it. I travel a lot for work and these pants are great as they can be dressed up or down and travel well. I initially bought the blue macaw and then came back and purchased the black because I liked them so much. Haven't had a chance to test out the water resistance yet, but going to Ireland in October, so I'm sure I'll find out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. Cute, flattering and barely shows wrinkles! I really love these little capri pants. The green color is super fun. They are so flattering on me, I couldn't believe it. I wore them on a 4 hour car ride and there were barely any wrinkles! And.... these pants magically hide any lumps and bumps. They do give a little while wearing. But still the knees don't bag and they keep their shape. I am 5'4", 134 lbs and purchased size 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hides lumps and bumps The material is very thin but it hides the lumps and bumps. I ordered the green color and it is very bright. I love them. Very true to size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pant These pants are great. They're lightweight and comfortable, but still dressy enough to wear to work with a sweater and flats. The ankle length is a bit awkward; not short enough for a capri, not long enough to hit the ankle, but they still look good and I decided to keep them. I'm about 5'4" and 125lbs and ordered a size 6.
