These pants are great for light work or just casual wear. However, if you intend to do some real tough hiking or work, the material is not strong enough. I often carry a large pocket knife and after only a few times taking in an out of the pocket the pant began to tear. Also, I often do workouts (pushups, burpies....etc....) during my hikes/light jogs and the pant has begun to wear thin on the knees and around the belt loops. But I often beat the heck out of my clothes, so if you are just wearing them for light use.....great pant.
I would recommend this product.

Pants work great as a summer or fall-weather hiking pant. They are very thin and work well when you don't want to wear shorts or you just need a little bit more covering.
I bought them to keep ticks and grass off my legs during summer hikes. Fit well and get the job done.
I have not tried them out in wet weather to see how they perform. They won't give you much warmth on cold days.
I would recommend this product.

I get more comments on the look and style. However, it is the first pair of pants that I grab for casual wear. They are the best... and last forever... can't wear them out!!!

I bought these to travel light on my trip to Europe this summer and was hoping to cover both sight-seeing in town and day hiking in the mountains. For hiking they were good. They are well made and fit well. But - the pockets are shallow and tight so I wouldn't say they are really a cargo pant. The net is that you can do better for hiking. For sightseeing they just didn't achieve my goal of looking a little dressier than a hiking pant. Also - I wanted black to hide dirt and work better with multiple shirts but they are not offered in that color. Why is this basic color not offered? I didn't want green so got the darkest color available which is Tusk. It was ok relative to dirt but I discovered one glaring issue - when you wash your hands and there is even a drop of a splash - it leaves a large visible dark spot for a few minutes while you try and get it to dry. This was an embarrassing thing given that sink level for me is just about the level of the zipper. Net - the pants are ok but have a lot of drawbacks. I would not buy them again.
I do not recommend this product.

I am a Fly Fishing guide. I spend a lot of time in and on the water. These pants are great for wet wading and they are very comfortable when rowing a drift boat or canoe all day. I highly recommend these pants.

I'm grateful for the reviews of these pants. My waste is a 35" measured so typically purchase 36"x34". Ordering one size up, 38"x34", like some reviews advised was great. The fit was just a bit loose but very comfortable. The lightweight material with a closer fit is not what this 59 year old was after anyway, haha. The cargo pockets don't have flaps, sleek, and won't catch on drawer pulls, airline armrests, etc. It might help to sew the cargo pocket openings maybe 3/8" at the edges so loose objects won't slip out when zippers not closed. Very comfortable in 90 degrees plus.
I would recommend this product.

These pants are amazing. I would own 10 pair if I could. I wore them in India and the pants were true to their function, the sweat was wicked away from my legs and dried quickly. They are amazingly comfortable too and breath great. I would give them five stars but the velcro patches for the pockets seem a little small, which is fine, but it feels like they won't last a long time. But in all honesty, velcro can only survive so many washes and uses before it just gets worn out.
I would recommend this product.

Like the heading says...literally...I live in these things - Whether at the office, out on the water fishing, or working a film set - I almost always have on a pair of these. They're super comfortable, dry quickly and look great in any situation. Protecting myself from the sun is something I strive for everyday. This product certainly does that without making things too hot or too restraining. I only wish they came in more colors like green and black.
I would recommend this product.

These pants are very comfortable and lightweight. Maybe a little too lightweight for walking through brush or thorny plants. They do not shed water, so if you get a light color, be aware that water will show, but it dries quickly. They do run a little small. I usually wear a 38X32, but a 40X32 fits great.
I would recommend this product.

If you want to use them for hiking and such, get something else. These are just like all of the trendy skinny jean styles out there. The pants are nice, yet the are very "crowding" in the thigh. I like mine to be a little less binding when I hike.

For a given waist size, the fit around the hips is very tight. Recommend ordering one size larger in waist than your normal size.

I have several pair of Silver Ridge Cargo pants and love wearing them! I no longer wear 'convertable pants' so these are perfect in that respect. My only disappointment is the color. I ordered 'gravel' this time hoping to get something close to charcoal or even black..

The sizing is very skimpy ,the rise is too short which makes the pant difficult to put on. The legs are too tight which makes the pant impossible to use for hiking.
Why can't Columbia be consistent in their sizing, and where is the Quality Control to make sure a size 30 hiking pant is a hiking pant and not a tight fitting jean style .
I own many Columbia pants and have never encountered this before.
I do not recommend this product.

Ordered these for my husband. He loves them, definitely more for spring summer than winter. They do run a tad small. I asked him if we should trade them in for a bigger size and he said no so they must not be that much more smaller.

Nice pants, well made, nice fabric & color. Unfortunately, your longest inseam is too short for me. Why are they not available with longer inseams, so taller people can wear them?
