To call the Columbia Girls' Silver Ridge III Convertible Pant versatile might be an understatement, but to compliment its moisture-wicking, quick-drying, breathable, lightweight characteristics would be completely apt. An Omni-Wick lining cycles out water and perspiration, allowing it to evaporate through the surface rather than accumulate. When spending long days in the sun, you don't want your daughter's skin burning up and ruining her week; so, Columbia included an Omni-Shade fabric, able to protect her gentle skin from UVA and UVB rays. Whether your girl is hiking, climbing, or traveling abroad, she has the pants (and the shorts) to meet her demands.

My daughter loves them

- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
I got these for my 8 year old daughter for a backpacking trip. She loves them, the convertibility worked well. During the day when temperatures were hot she wore them as shorts, as night fell we zipped on the lower portion for extra warmth. The zip on lower legs were a little fiddly but I've never seen a pair of convertible pants that weren't. Although we haven't really put them through the wringer so far the quality looks good.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: L
I love the pants just have to return them for get right size .
IT IS TOO BIG FOR ME, I need smaller size .
Are these pants suitable for rock climbing? My 9 year old is on a competetive team and the only thing I can find to fit her are leggings which don't hold up to the wear and tear.

These are awesome pants for hiking and summer camps for young girls. I bought these for my daughter for a "mud mucking" camp. She thought it was so awesome to be able to unzip her pants and wade in the river and lake and then zip the legs back on to climb up rocks and walk through the weeds and fields. They have an adjustable waist band for the perfect fit. They are water resistant and dry very quickly in wet conditions. Highly recommend these pants for young active hikers.
