The pants are very comfortable (without items in pockets) and durable. My favorite feature being that they dry very quickly and are very lightweight. Being convertible they are great for hot days that may include bushwhacking. Also compared to other brands the price is not bad. There downfall comes to the pockets, granted I carry lots in my pockets, but when full, the pants become really tight, due to lack of stretch, around the crotch and upper leg making movement less comfortable and more constricted. Also the tiny little belt it comes with does not do much for me and it extremely difficult to remove.
I would recommend this product.

These pants fit really well. I am 6'2" 195lb. and the 34" inseam fits great. The pants are a little slim fitting and snug in the rear-end. I wore them in the rain yesterday, they got soaked, but I was dry and they dried inside in about two hours. I recommend these pants for everyday use and outdoors/hiking.
I would recommend this product.

I love these pants. I live in sothern California with cool mornings and warm days. I play golf and these fit the bill perfectly. Easy to use and great quelity, so it last a long time. I wish they made a model that was a little heaver material for the cold mornings.
I would recommend this product.

We are going on a cruise in October, 2015 and I wanted something light for packing. These serve two purposes. If it's cool, I have pants to wear. If it gets warm, I have shorts. These fit well and look good. I have two pair ready for traveling.
I would recommend this product.

Lightweight, SPF built in, convertible from pants to shorts, lots of pockets, and comfy! I got both the shirt and pants. Velcro pockets scare me over long term use, but I'll see how it holds up.

I got my first pairs for a trip to Africa and learned how fabulous, comfortable and versatile they are!
I spent most of my life coaching and only wish I had these pants then. I went to a football game with my wife and got caught in a fall shower. By halftime, my pants were completely dry and comfortable, while my wife's jeans were wet and miserable.
I ordered my latest pair, because I just had shoulder surgery. I can wear these to work and easily get them on with my non-dominant hand. They are fabulous!
I would recommend this product.

I purchased my first pair of Columbia convertible pants, and LOVE them. I just spent 10 days in Costa Rica, bought these pants for that adventure, and loved them. They quickly became my pants and shorts of choice for the whole trip!

Adventure racers and orienteers love this pant because the ripstop sheds all the thorns, thistles and all those plants that stick to most pants. I love them for this, and they dry quickly too.
However they ride a little low on the hip, the crotch is short and the thighs are a bit small. I can feel them pulling my legs when running through the woods or semi-rough open areas. I can feel them restricting my range of motion when hurdling fallen branches or tree trunks. These actions also pull the pants down, so I have to pull them up. The belt is a little thin and cuts into the skin when tightened.
Overall, a nice pant for crossing through rough terrain, but they are made for the thinner crowd; not for athletic bodies (try the relaxed fit).
I would recommend this product.

Just bought my second pair and will probably add more colors. I love these pants. Bought them for sun protection when spending hours in an open kayak fishing. They are incredibly comfortable, even on hot days. I usually get the bottoms wet while launching, and they dry within a couple minutes. Another big plus is that it is very easy to reattach the legs, even while wearing the shorts. I've never had to struggle with the zippers.
I would recommend this product.

I wore these pants to Disney during July and was very pleased with the fit and comfort. I did not get hot at all. The pockets are perfect for carrying several things. The best part was how quickly they dried after getting wet in the rain. I highly recommend these for any outdoor occasion.

The product construction and material is very good quality. But, the designer of these pants must be uber-skinny with pencil-thin legs. I'm an average sized guy, with what I would classify as an athletic build at 6'0' 185 lbs and the legs are way to small for me to comfortably squeeze into. I bought a 34" waist, which was actually slightly large for me, but the legs are still too small for me to squeeze into. My hips and thighs look like I am wearing spandex. Restricts movement a ton. I'm going to return them and try the Blood and Guts pants, as I have heard they run bigger in the leg area.
I do not recommend this product.

purchased this pant for a coworker. He works outdoors nearly everyday and loves the functionality of the pant - can be worn to indoor meetings or out in the field. Loves the convertible pant and secure pockets. (I own the women's version and feel the same!)

Well made and functional, but my husband sent them back because they were small enough that he did not have full range of motion. He is slender and wears a 32-30 but they did not work for him. Too bad, because they were just what he wanted for a trip.

Lot's of pockets, rip-stop nylon to prevent tears from spreading, SPF, wicking and transition to shorts make these pants perfect for any fishing trip -- saltwater and freshwater.
