Excellent wear ability. Looks good out on a hike, or out in public eye. Stands up and conferrable in high heat.
I would recommend this product.

Love the Silverridge.
I've had several pairs of the convertible pants all in waist 30. Perfect fit. So I bought the non-convertible "cargo" version in 30" but they were slightly too small. (The website DID say they ran a little small.) So I returned and bought the next size up (32") Too big (as expected). I just wish they made these great pants in 1" increments. A 31" would fit me perfectly. 8^(
Otherwise I would give them a 5 star.
I would recommend this product.

Comfortable, durable and well made. They seem to be a little small for me, especially the thigh area when hiking. A friend of mine told me they run a little small so I ordered one size larger. I typically wear 38 and I'm 6'2" 215lbs.
I would prefer a looser fit in the legs.
I would recommend this product.

Picked up the Silver Ridge Cargo Pant for wet wading and walking through the woods where there are no trails. The pants might run a bit small on the waist size but I am thrilled to find a company that offers an inseam longer than 32 (seems like most companies only expect people to go outdoors if they have short legs). Three things that I really like about the pants are the cargo pockets that don't balloon and stay very snug to the leg, the extremely sturdy rivet closure at the waist instead of a plastic, sewn on button, and the belt loops that allow me to use the provided belt or one of my own.
I would recommend this product.

These pants are so comfortable after I got the correct size (suggest you size up 1 size). They wash well, dry quickly l and in our Texas heat they really do keep you cooler.

Great pant for traveling - lots of secure pockets, lightweight, washes & Dries quickly. It's the only pant I take with me to Europe.
Definitely get one size larger. I had a pair that I bought a year ago (made in Vietnam# - 34x30. The new pair I ordered - #made in Bangladesh) were very tight - I returned them and got a 36x30 and they fit great!!!
I would recommend this product.

I ordered these for my husband, who is a big fan of Columbia insect blocker pants. These are not just good for hiking but are nice casual pants, especially for warm weather, and pack down to nothing for travel.

These pants are great. Lightweight, good for gardening, which is why I bought them for my husband. Two words of caution...they run long, so although he wears a 34 length in every other pant, we ordered 32. We knew to do that because he has another pair that are 34 length and they are way too long. Got 36 to have them loose for gardening. That worked. But, I ordered gravel, which looks gray on the website. I also figured that, in life, gravel is gray. Well, they are green. I've never seen green gravel before. I guess I should have called Columbia to double check the color...but also suggest they use a more appropriate name for green pants, particularly if they show up gray on the website. My husband kept them though, since they are just for gardening.
I would recommend this product.

We haven't had the high 90 degree weather that I purchased these for but so far they seem to be exactly what I was looking for. I use these under my riding pants more as a base layer rather than an outer garment. I can remove my riding pants and have comfortable pants to walk around in.
I do some touring on my Motorcycle and need pants that do not add heat or bulk. The wicking attribute is a plus for cooling as it slows the evaporation of perspiration but helps keep me dry on long rides.
The pants are small in the waist but not in length, purchased a size larger and they fit fine.
The last long ride was 11,460 miles round trip. 72 day mostly camping, another reason for lighter weight. On a Motor Cycle the requirement for light weight and pack small and light is imperative.
I would recommend this product.

I had bought Silver Ridge convertible pants at REI. I am one of the MANY in between sizes, a 31 waist. The 32 waist fit fine. They didn't carry the regular Silver Ridge cargo pants there so I order them online. They are too big, fit like a regular 32 inch waist fits me,,,falling off.
Seems to be a confusing size difference in the style of pants, I am going to send them back and try a pair of 30 inch in the Silver Ridge cargo pants.
I would recommend this product.

Overall a good product in terms of quality. However, the issue with this pants line, and its a BIG issue, is that they run extremely small if you have any type of an athletic build, particularly in the leg/butt area. I normally take a 33/34 size waist and most times i have a little extra space in a 34 waist pants. I ordered these in a 34 size and I couldnt even get them up past my thighs to buckle them and I am 6'1 205 lbs. Great pants if you have a thin build and legs like a bird, otherwise I recommend ordering these pants in a size or even two sizes bigger than your normal pants size.
I would recommend this product.

I've owned Silver Ridge pants in the past and hoped that you had made some improvements. Sad to say, you haven't.
The thing that bugs me the most about this pant is that the belt loops are not distributed in such a way that the belt holds the pant uniformly all the way around. The pant can dip/sag between some of the loops. This makes for a lousy fit and lousy look. The belt, by the way won't stay securely adjusted as to length and the snap doesn't always work consistently/easily. Fix these for me and I'll be first in line to buy a few pair. Thanks!
I do not recommend this product.

I bought a pair to travel with in warm climates and they met every expectation.. They fit great, resist wrinkle and are cool and light but with a sturdy feel to them. I looked at other recommendations and went a size up with a bit of trepidation -- but they fit perfect!
