Pants are great. Fit well and comfortable.
Would like to see them offered in a light tan color. The color swatches on the website are very hard to discern as they are too small and too similar looking
I would recommend this product.

Don't get me wrong, these pants are great. About six or seven years ago I bought two pairs of the previous version of these pants and they are still holding up great. I'm back in Afghanistan again and thought it would be nice to have a couple of extra pairs. The previous version of these pants were a little bit better and here's why. The previous version had a zipper on each cargo pocket and snaps on the back pockets. Zippers are a great way to be sure nothing falls out. The new version has a very small velcro closure on the right cargo and back pockets and just the one zipper on the left cargo pocket. The previous version also had a small elastic loop in the right front pocket. This is great for hanging on to keys or a pocket knife the new one does not.
But the fit, flexibility and packability of the new version seems to be just as good as the old ones.

Fit and feel great! Repels Light rain and snow. I'd buy more but apparently columbia has stopped manufacturing 30 Inseam - I am very annoyed by this. Good look trying to get rid of size 44!

Columbia makes good clothing: good design, good materials, good workmanship. Where they fail is sizing. In my recent order, I purchased one pair of Columbia's Lander Pants and two pairs of Silver Ridge Cargo Pants. All three pairs were exactly the same size: 30x32. The Lander Pants (made in Pakistan) fit great. They're even a little loose. The Silver Ridge Cargo Pants (made in Bangladesh) are so high and tight in the crotch that I'm afraid I'm going to hurt myself if I sit down in them. The waist is also very tight. If you order these pants, you might consider ordering a larger size than you would normally, especially if you are in-between sizes.
I would recommend this product.

The pants were more than I thought I'd get. Well made, lots of pockets, good color. Saw another review about getting pants one size larger because of skimpy crotch and it worked well.

All of my shorts and outdoor casual pants are Columbia. Only brand I buy and I know they will fit, comfortable, and functional. Just wish there were more color selections available.

I bought this pair of Men's Silver Ridge Cargo Pant because the pair I have worn since the early 1990's was becoming too stained to wear in public. And a bit too small in the waistline (which is my fault not the fault of the pants). I still wear my old pair to work in the garden take walks at night. I hope that my new pair lasts half as long. Thanks for making such a fine, strong, long-lasting product.
I would recommend this product.

I wore the pants to play golf. I'm fair skinned and don't want to expose myself to the sun more than I have to. I'm thin (not 17) but much older, with a 34 waist (5'11). The pants were a little tight around me below the waist and in the thighs. They'd probably be too small for thick thighs and stout backside.
They work well enough for me though.
I would recommend this product.

I had the prior version and liked it better. I am a size 36 and I ordered a 36 and it is a little tight across the front and crouch. You do need to order a size bigger to be comfortable; not a good thing Columbia. Both back pockets have a small velcro strip to keep it down, but it is not adequate. I would prefer one back pocket to be zipper and the other a velcro about twice the size. I will take the new pants to the seamstress and have her add another velcro strip and maybe a back pocket zipper. The security pocket is the left cargo pocket and it is at the kneecap and it bangs into your kneecap all the time; so you can only carry something very light weight. While I am still a fan of Columbia sportswear I am concerned that the accountants are cutting cost and now in charge instead of people that love the brand.
I would recommend this product.

These pants are awesome! Lightweight, comfortable, and dry fast. Great use of pockets, honestly wish I could wear them everyday. I'm hooked, had two older pairs and wore them out, just bought two new sets of Silver Ridge's and when I'm not wearing these, I'm wearing the Silver Ridge shorts. Highly recommend if you want a lightweight, breathable pant with a lot of function. Pretty much awesome for every activity!

Lightweight pant (nylon/polyester)keeps you cool even in very warm weaher (85-92). Fit is better than the old style of large (baggyer)since it now comes in waist/length specific sizes. One note is I orderd 36-32 even though my waist size is slightly larger than 34. I tried these on in a local store and 34 was too small in the waist for me. The baggyness is gone from this newer style and fits more closer to an actual pant. I like the better fit. That is why I gave it a fits slightly small rating for the waist issue, length is true to fit.
I would recommend this product.

You would think in this modern age that buying a sunblock pant in size 34x34 wouldn't be that difficult...wrong. Competitors didn't even come close so I tried Columbia. The website looked promising, however this size was not an option. I had to resort to a 36" waist with a long option to even get the 34' inseam. Needless to say the pants don't fit great. They are too baggy but the main problem is the inseam which is 35" plus. Even after I rolled up the inseam 2 1/2 inches and double taped the cuff they were still too long and drag on the ground. I will have them tailored to try and salvage. I don't know why clothing mfg focus on box shaped men. There are slender guys out there ya know! I strongly suggest you do not order the long inseam unless your true size is 36-38". Disappointing, esp given the hefty price tag. I probably could have gotten by with a regular inseam.
I do not recommend this product.

I have been wearing Columbia pants for more than 10 years and these are the first to have the wrong inseam. I had to have these shortened by almost 3 inches to keep from walking on the pant legs. The pants fit me correctly in the waist. They are very comfortable and cooler than other pants I have. I wear these on hot days for working outside and hiking.
I would recommend this product.

I returned my first purchase because it was cut too tight in the hips and waist (and I am fairly skinny there). I like the product otherwise. Fairly soft for nylon, good features, well constructed. I have ordered a size larger which I expect will be a little loose in the waist but looser in the hips.
I would recommend this product.
