Customer reviews for Columbia Women’s Silver Ridge™ Pant

Columbia Women’s Silver Ridge™ Pant

On long journeys, every extra ounce starts to feel like an added five pounds in your luggage. That’s what’s so great about the Silver Ridge pant; made of durable nylon, it weighs next to nothing and packs into its own pocket so you can throw it into a day pack for extra coverage should you need it.

I'm 5'6" and 130# with an athletic build and size 6 is pretty tight around the thighs (my 37.5" - 38" hips). They are the perfect length though and I wear them for my power walks (can't really sit in them without them pulling really tight around my thighs - they aren't necessarily uncomfortable, but it looks funny with them being so tight up top and so loose on the lower leg). I would have returned them for a size 8, but I'm super lazy and am making them work. And a size 8 would have been too big at the waist, even with the internal band tightened. I will mention that I am a fan of the fabric (I know not everyone is) - they are super lightweight, breathable, and dry really quickly.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased these pants for a 10 day trip to Ireland. We did a lot of hiking and a lot of walking in the cool, wet weather. I was also able to wash them several times in the sink and they'd be dry by the next day. They were perfect! The fabric isn't as stretchy as the Omni shield pants that I purchased from Columbia but I knew that going in.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered up a size based on other reviews and it was a mix of tight overall and restricting at the seams. If you're a narrow hipped gal, this is probably a great pant for you.
I do not recommend this product.

Pants were generous about waist but had adjustable tabs. I am on trip to Portugal at the moment and worn them several times already. They are very serviceable. Color doesn't show dirt.

I was surprised by the fabric of these pants--a very shiny nylon. The fabric doesn't come close to being as comfortable as the other Columbia pants I have. These don't have enough give and they actually made a swish swish noise when I walked. I like the style, but the waist is too high. I returned them.
I do not recommend this product.

This is my 3rd pair of Silver Ridge nylon pants. They're great for travel - don't wrinkle, wash & dry quickly and are very comfortable. In cold weather, I layer a pair of silk long-johns under them while traveling. I travel a lot and am switching my wardrobe completely over to Columbia nylon pants and shirts. I can pretty much put a month's worth of clothes in the side pocket of my suitcase. I find size 4 fits me well - I'm 5'6" and weigh 123 lbs., big waist, no hips.
I would recommend this product.

These are great light weight pants.
They do run a little large through the waist and hips. Aside from that the function is fantastic and they are a great looking pant, both for activities, or stopping for a drink after a hard day of fishing. These are almost perfect. If only they were a more slender cut and if they were also available in zip offs, they would be perfect.
I would recommend this product.

I normally buy a 10, but my last pair were falling off the hip without a belt. I bought an 8 and they fit perfectly. The material is lightweight but not flimsy, perfect for warm weather, especially with the roll-up capri option. My favorite weekend pants

These are my favorite lightweight pants. Last year they were made in a different country, & I wore a size 10. This year, produced elsewhere, & I had to exchange 10 for size 8; no weight loss. I'm 5'6" , weigh 126, regular length great.

I am very happy with these pants. They are the perfect pant for hot weather hiking. They are light and the fact that they roll up into a capris is even better. The 2 snap closure at the waist makes them very comfortable and the 32" inch length fits perfectly over my boot. The best part is that they look really good too.
I would recommend this product.

First impression of these pants is that it is made of a material that is thin and really light weight. Definitely a material that you would want for backpacking and climbing. My guess is that is dries super quick.
Once I tried them on, I had to send them back. They were very tight around my thighs and the material did not stretch so it would not be good for climbing or backpacking. I have an athletic build, a long distance runner and rock climber. I normally wear a size 4 in Columbia, but I've had this problem in the past with some of their other pants. If I go up to a size 6, it would be baggy around the waist.
If you have skinny legs, you will love these pants. . I really wanted to love them.
I would recommend this product.

I bought a pair while traveling and liked them so much I bought a second pair in a different color. They are lightweight, but seem plenty warm when it cools off. I especially like the adjustable band that can be used to take in the waist. These pants are very packable.
I would recommend this product.

I was looking forward to these pants because they were one of the few I could find in a tall size. I really wanted a quick-dry outdoor pant, and the pants are made out of the right material but the seams that cut across the thigh are uncomfortable and the waist is loose. I bought a 4 and even that was too big for me, 5'10" 138 pounds, and the pant fit loosely around the lower abdomen. They cling strangely to my legs aren't very comfortable to move in. The best part of these pants is the length, which is really nice.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought these pants with the intention to do field research in them. These pants are now my go to when adventuring outside. I usually wear a size 00 but purchased a size 2 being the smallest size they had, they are slightly big in the rear (being 5'3 98Ib) but provide the perfect amount of room when bouldering and hiking mountains. The regular length is the perfect fit. They are not too tight on the thigh and provide enough room for comfortable mobility. I love these pants so much I am thinking about ordering another pair!
I would recommend this product.

Very true to size! I was so please that there was a tall version of these pants. I am 5'10 1/2 and they are the perfect length. I also love the adjustable waist band feature as my waist is a lot smaller than my hips. These pants look really nice as well. I can't wait to wear them on my Camino!

Every time I wear them casually someone mentions how nice looking they are. Great material and weight. I then joined a hiking club and decided these were my best option through brush on days with unreliable temperatures. How right I was! Lightweight made for easy climbing and trekking and no sweating. Nice pockets too. I bought 3 pair.

I love love love SilverRidge pants. They used to fit me great, were highly functional, and looked sharp despite the use they were put through by me.
I am dissapointed with the pocket on the front leg. It makes such a classy pair of working pants frumpy and forces it to look shabby in professional situations. I could go from the field to the meeting without worrying that I looked like I came from the field. Columbia has plenty of other cargo pants with pockets galore, why ruin a good thing?
I have curves and always felt that these pants were flattering, however the waist does seem to be shrinking. Thank goodness they still carry these pants in long! As a tall person, I appreciate being able to not see my socks as I walk.
