Great lightweight hiking pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 38/32

Durable for the weight. Quick drying, and funtional. Six pockets are plus (four of them either zipper or velcro closure). Very lighyweight; great for warm or hot weather backpacking.

Style makeover flops

    Columbia and others have taken the classic convertible cargo pants and moved the pockets to the side from the top. This destroys the whole purpose of this pant which is to use cargo flap pockets to give the birder, explorer , photographer or hiker easy access to gear needed for the trip— and still allow him or her to sit down!
    You can’t sit comfortably with a bird book or lens sticking you in the bottom! Also harder to open and you can’t see from the top or front what’s in there.

    Nice pants

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

    Light weight and durable pair of pants. Convertible when the weather gets toasty, and quick to dry after getting wet.

    • Size Bought: 36X30

    These pants have always been a hit and my dad seems to add them to every father's day, xmas, and birthday list he gives me. I am sure by now he owns every shade that Columbia makes in this style. Light weight, durable, and great for any season/trip. These can be used on the trail, around town, or off on an adventure abroad. These are my dad's go to pant for travel and around town and I know if he was reviewing these it would get a 10 star rating (if possible). Overall these have always been and will probably always be a hit.

    He is 6'0 and typically wears a 36x30. The 36x30 fits him like a glove.

    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

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        • 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

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: 36/34

          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

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          • 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.
