In the past 2 weeks, I wore them hiking in Mexico where it was hot. Came home to snow and cold so I wore them over long underwear to cross country ski.....and they look nice! I love that they are available in a short. I did not have to shorten them...oh and I have 3 pair! I am 5'1" and wear the medium-short. they fit perfectly.
I would recommend this product.

These are the first pair of pants that I have found that fit through the waist and hips, while still maintaining a flattering appearance! The moderate height waist does not fall down in the back and are roomy enough through the hips and thighs with the added stretch. The length is great for what I use the pants for...golf, outdoor activities, and all rainy games/practices with my 5 sons! I am 5'8, 165 lbs. I ordered the large size and they are absolutely perfect! They ward off chilly winds and some rain/water. I use a base-layer underneath if in colder outdoor actitivies and the pants still fit and look great! At 5'8 with long legs, I do not find the length to be too short. The tapered leg is flattering and also great for tucking in a boot! I purchased these initially in black, then purchased them in the gray and a second pair of black! If available in other colors, I would buy at least one of each! Additionally, there is only one small zippered pocket on the left thigh. Additional pockets would be great!
I would recommend this product.

I loved these pants so much in gray that I also bought them in black. They are sporty enough that I wear them for indoor winter tennis, and are tapered enough in the leg to work great with boots. Love the stretch waist, side zipper pocket, and fast drying material. They often look quite crumpled when coming out of the dryer, but that seems to disappear once you put them on and start moving around. Wish there were other colors so I could buy more!
I would recommend this product.

I wanted to love these. I even took them home to try them on again at home, but my mirror at home didn't change the short length of these pants. They run very short. I am 5'8 and 140 lbs, but I can always buy pants off of the rack. Always. My height is in my torso so fitted dresses and swimsuits are my usual fit problem. Never pant length. Other than that pretty big problem the pants looked really nice on me especially from behind. I hope Columbia fixes this problem because I would love to own these pants.
I would recommend this product.

I'm excited to find an affordable, slim fit technical trouser that has clean lines. I'm not a fan of baggy hiking pants. Excess fabric is not flattering or easy to pack. I am 5' tall and weigh about 115 lbs but have 37" hips so I decided on the size small in a short inseam. I found a perfect fit in terms of length and I wanted a slim cut so I'm happy with the trouser overall. However, the crotch seams are not the most comfortable and would've benefitted from a different type of construction. The trouser fabric definitely resists liquids and looks fine even after a full day's wear.
I would recommend this product.

I really wanted to keep these pants but they run extremely short! They looked very high watered on me and I am only 5' 7. No option for a taller length so I returned them.
I do not recommend this product.

I love these pants...don't get me wrong...but a 30" inseam is too short for me and I am only 5'5". I SO wish they would make an option for a 32" inseam or greater - I would buy several pair. As it is I have to return them and am disappointed.
I do not recommend this product.

I love the fit of these pants. The legs are perfect - not tight fitting, just "skinny" enough to be very flattering. The regular length is perfect for me. I'm 5'2" but my legs are long. I already ordered another pair.

Bought these with the boot cut as well. Am 5'4", athletic build but 32DDD and shortwaisted. So VERY hard to find pants that don't make me look "matronly" and squat. These (as with bootcut) are terrific! They fit smoothly at the front with no bulging pockets and are very flattering at the rear. Was a great investment, and will purchase both colors now. Very accurate sizing and length is perfect.

I would love to buy these in XL but worry that they might be too small. My body is that of a 70 yo woman - 160 pounds on a 5'5" frame. Any thoughts from buyers?

I bought size M/short and it fits perfect, 5'2" and 120 lbs. It's not a winter pant; but I wear a base layer under when out for fast walks in 30 degree mornings. I bought another pair in grey color. Like the looks. I am still looking for a warmer material for the cold weather.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this pants both in grey and black and am very happy I did so. Being short (5'2), it's very hard for me to find short pants that also fit nicely. This pants do it all. Nice flattering cut, light fabric, comfortable and stretchy. Omni-shade UPF 50 and Omni-shield advanced repellency make me completely protected from all the elements on the golf course. I wish they come in more colors. The short inseam fits me fine, although I wouldn't mind if it were half an inch longer. Overall, exceeds my expectation.
I would recommend this product.

These are one of my most favorite pants of all time. Super comfortable and versatile. Fit me perfectly and no weird muffin top lines from those extra holiday pounds! Love it. My only complaint is that I wish there were a khaki or stone color, please make one!

These pants fit great...love that they are cut higher in the back so you don't have to worry about showing anything you don't want to!they are also comfortable...already used them for 2 hikes.also nice that they are feminine...a lot of these type of pants look masculine and unflattering but these have a sexy fit.

Sad to say I had to return the pants. I would have loved them, but they ran small for me. I will order larger size. I have other size medium columbia pants so decided to go with same size. Should have paid attention to reviews which I believe said they ran small.

I was excited to get these pants in the mail. The material is really nice, perfect weight, no wrinkles and stretchy. They seemed to run a little small to me, I'm 5'10" and 160lbs...they also were SUPER short. I was sad they were not long enough...I even exchanged them for the XL - they too were way too short. They were also too big, so I guess I am a large plus not quite XL. Too bad, as these seemed like they'd be such a great functional pant.

I am 5'1 and am extremely athletic and weight about 135 lbs. I bought these in a medium short and they are the first pair of pants I never have had to hem and they are so nice looking that they almost look like dress pants but feel like sweat pants! I might try and wear them to work! the skinny leg looks amazing too! I just bought another one in grey!!!
