Very satisfied

    Fits perfect and true to size. He really likes the light weight materials and how quickly they dry when they get wet. They pack up a very small in his pack.

      Good pants

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small

      These are good pants, they work fine. They seem to run just a little small to me, and as a result, I'm hoping that I don't stress tear them out in the field, but we'll see how they break in.

      Love these pants

      • Size Bought: 40x30

      These are the perfect warm weather pants for me. Incredibly comfortable and durable. I use them for everyday around town in summer as well as trips abroad to warm weather places. Having the option to turn them into shorts in a flash is a bonus. They are super light for packing; wash and dry quickly; and look nice too. And, finally Columbia modified these pants to give you 2 rear pockets. Love them!

      Wrong Size; Perfect Pant

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 32x32

      Beautiful pant in 32 x 32. Too small in thighs/buttocks; will reorder 34 x 32 immediately.

      Comfortable and casual

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 36x34

      I've taken these hiking a few times, and they've worked really well so far. They're very lightweight and comfortable, and they adapt well to both cooler and warmer temps. Plus, the many pockets have come in very handy. I'm very happy with them so far.

      Looks good, Feels good, does the job

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32/30

      My go to pants for hiking regardless of weather, thus the zip off option. They've kept me from charring in the summer heat and sun, and they've kept me warm during the frigid morning hikes to peak with wind and frost.

      It looks good but 'M' size was too tight

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 32w x 34

      Order arrived on time and well packaged. I ordered the black pants and it looks nice and material seems to be good.
      I am 5'11" and 180lbs and ordered the 32w x 34 size. If fits well around the waist and the length is also good. The issue was around the thighs. It was extremely snug to the point I decided to return it.
      I have 04 other hiking convertible pants (including another Columbia) and none of them are that sung/tight.

      Back for More

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      My dad loves this pant so much that I am back for more (new color). Well designed and comfortable style with a nice light weight material. Great for summer or winter use and can be used day to day or simply out on an adventure. Overall a great buy and I am sure I will be back for more in the future.

      Amazing pants to stay cool at work

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      This pants fit amazing, I can used like my uniform, since color are pretty nice, they can combine with everything I have in my stuff since color is very easy for combinations.
      Very recommended for all, and obvious, I can go to walk in the forest after job without change the pants since they work in casual and adventure...

      Great product, runs small

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 36x30

      Ordered this for hiking in wet weather. Was looking for pants that dried quickly but didn't want to over heat in waterproof pants. These did the trick. Warning these run small in my experience. Usually a 32x30. Had to send these back twice. Ended up with 36x30

      Ran a little small

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 34W 34L

      I ordered a 34 waist and 34 inseam, this is what I normally wear in pants but these were very tight on my thighs. The waist and length were good though, but if you have thighs that are on the larger side, try something different.

      Comfortable

        Comfortable and shipper than others, i love them

        Trust me, these are your new go to pants

        I bought these convertible pants for a backpacking trip a while back. i packed about 3 bottoms and 3 shirts for a 5 day hike. These pants were so comfortable i ended up wearing them all 5 days. very durable. that was about 3 years ago and i am still wearing the same pair. and they are still in great shape, minus the camp fire 1cm spark hole form a Yosemite trip. great pants for a great price.

        nothing but convertible

        • Size Bought: 34x30

        Light, loaded with pockets; dry quickly; belt actually works and these things just don't seem to get dirty. This is my second pair I got for an 8 day hike through the Smoky Mountains but I could have done with one. I like convertibles way better then one pair of shorts and another pair of pants.

        Great Pants

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: 32

        Sized correctly (32 is a true 32). Doesn't shrink. Lighweight and comfortable.

        "Nice pants"

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: 38

        I use them to bike commute to the prison where I work as a nurse. I use the pants in the AM, and remove the lower legs for shorts when it gets hotter for my ride home. It has secure pockets to hold keys and wallet ( keeps from losing them or having them stolen). They look and function very similar to my scrubs with cargo pockets. They also dry fast.....I bought extra to have a clean set for each day.

        Good hiking pants, poor stitching.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: Large

        I have ordered four pairs of these pants for myself and my son.
        We have both worn them for weekend hikes and a week long hike this summer. He and I compared notes and we both discovered the stitching in pockets are coming apart. The side pocket on the right leg completely separated on my pants and both pairs he wears have holes in the back pocket stitching. Besides this very important issue, the pants are nice, durable and comfortable.

        Thanks for the review Steve! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

        Great at what they do

        These Columbia pants will do exactly what you want them to. They are lightweight but durable, and easy to adapt to the current temperature. I continue to recommend these year after year.

        Great pants!

        • Size Bought: Sizing is accurate (waist

        This my 3rd pair of Columbia convertible pants (no, I don't work for the company). They're easy on/off, light, and comfortable. I would prefer if they had a snap-off waist button but I'm getting picky. Only potential con is that the light colours (e.g. fossil) become somewhat see-through when wet - I accidentally discovered this feature during a deluge and showed the world my black underwear.
