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 would recommend this product.

Purchased the pants on-line for our upcoming Africa Safari. The quality is very good and fit well. Make sure you order one size larger (length was true).

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..
I would recommend this product.

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.
I would recommend this product.

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?
I would recommend this product.

These pants look like they would have been very good, but the sizing seems way off. 30 x 30 size was very snug through the hips and thighs although the waist fit fine. The 30" length was considerably shorter than 30" length in similar L.L. Bean pants. Unfortunately, without a 31" waist option, can't get the correct fit since 32" is way too large.
I do not recommend this product.

They're great, light weight material, quick drying, very comfortable & lots of pockets!! They're also available in shorts. In my opinion they run a tad small(I like a looser fit) so I got them several sizes larger. I made a few adjustments as well, adding a draw string inside the waist & zippers on the main left and right pockets.
If you're going to be near fire or sparks just be aware that the smallest ember will leave a hole in this material. This does however give one the opportunity to apply a unique patch, thus adding "character" to the garment..
I would recommend this product.

as others have said - sizing is on the tight side. Lovely latch for the belt but a bit hard to get used to. Very light and feel good on. Typical durable Columbia quality.
Bought these for the tropics.

I cannot seem to find a size in this pant. The legs on the 34" waist seem like they belong on the 30" size pant. If I move up to 36" waist, the pant seems bulky in the crotch area. Columbia needs to figure out their sizing in pants and start making pants for people who actually have a little muscle in their legs.

My inseam is 30". However, had to take it to a tailor to shorten it. That was an expenditure that I did not appreciate. I did note a previous customer's review mentioning the fact of the excessive length of the pants.
I would recommend this product.

Bought all three colours right off the bat because I knew they'd be awesome from all the reviews. They're super lightweight, absorb wetness (sweat, water) quickly, and wash awesomely.
They're true to size except for the length - they're just SLIGHTly too long. I got a 30/30, and I'm pretty sure it's more of a 30/31... It's no hassle though, just looks kinda funny when they gather that much at the bottom. But whatever, I don't care that much how it looks, it keeps me cool and dry in the heat and humidity of Africa!
I would recommend this product.

Like the pants very much but have two small problems:
1. I wear a 35/31 in a pair of slacks--to get a good fit in these pants I bought a 36/30, i.e. order a slightly larger waist and a slightly shorter length.
2. the names of the colors are unintelligible. Ex: tusk is a medium khaki--gravel is a dark green,etc. Wish they would be a little less 'cutesy' with the names
Otherwise is a good pants
I would recommend this product.
