Hip-huggers?

I have several pairs of Columbia pants that I dearly love, so I ordered this pair without reservation. I was disappointed, however, when I first put them on, finding them to be very "short-wasted;" I. E, the distance from the crotch to the waste band was at least two inches less than my others, thus making them reminiscent of the old hip-huggers of many years ago. Cool then; now, not so much. Would have returned them if not so much trouble and expense. Still love my old ones, though.
I do not recommend this product.

The weight of this fabric is good. I'm always relieved to find 100% cotton fabrics. The color selection is ok; at least the colors available are neutral and one can wear a lot of color with them. Since I am a woman and can't find this product in women's clothing, I may be a devoted fan of the pants. What's with spandex?
I would recommend this product.

I tried this product because the pockets in women's pants just don't cut it for me. I like to have room to put a few items of importance. It only got me a few extra millimeters but hey I'll take what I can get.
Please Ma, don't scrimp on the pockets!
Over all, these are my favorite pants for EVERYTHING!
Kayaking, working, cruising around, they are durable and don't pick up stains readily. They fit great and look fantastic!
I would recommend this product.

the only thing negative about the pant is front pockets are not deep enough and zipper is shorter than it used to be. I will continue to buy this produce and others.

I have worn the original ROC pant for years. I presumed these would fit the same. They did not. The rise was shorter and the fit through the thighs was tighter. I returned them.
Disappointing.

The pants fit really well and sizing seems about right. Very comfortable right out of the box so I expect that they will just get better and better as time goes on. Look really nice.

This was frustrating for me. I love my ROC, Lander and other Columbia pants. They are about all I wear since retiring. But the buying process/advertising for these was confusing.
1. This pant is advertised as a ROC pant. I thought ROC was the model name of the pant I liked. Now that they have appended that name to what is essentially a jean, I don't know what ROC means anymore. This is not the ROC pant it is a pair of jeans.
2. The web site (at least at the time I purchased) said the pant had a zippered security pocket. It does not.
3. The color names are perpetually confusing. If you must you marketing names, can you at least provide a users guide to decode the marketing names. Dark moss is, I think, a kind of greenish-Olive. Can you say that somewhere please.
I really like Columbia pants, I must have 12 pair in my closet. But this was frustrating.
And, by the way, the five pocket pants are usual good quality EXCEPT the front pockets are way too shallow.
I do not recommend this product.

The pant is nice for the price. My only complaint is that the crotch area is kind of small. I feel like it is limiting. The waste is also low and maybe that contributes to the small feeling.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these pants in the hopes that I could use them for my workplace, which requires black slacks. With a name like Abyss one would assume that the color of these pants would be black. Instead I got a nicely fitting pair of pants that seem to go from a dark gray to a blue color. I can't quite decide which. I will most likely keep these pants but I can't use them for my workplace. The naming conventions for colors really needs some work. I love making the names something unique and outdoorsy but Grill, Alpine Tundra and Abyss are NOT colors and can mislead your loyal customers. There are no casual or hiking pants that I can find from Columbia that are black in color. Disappointing. =(
I would recommend this product.

I was a Lander pants devotee. Then something changed dramatically about 3 years ago and the fabric used for these pants was literally water soluble. I stayed away from Columbia clothing period. Then I became eligible for a pro deal discount and thought I would give Columbia another chance. So far the 2 styles of pants(Roc and Ultimate Roc 5 pocket(UR)) I have been wearing are doing well(2 months in). The fabrics are different with the UR having a lighter material. The cut of the Roc is more generous with the UR having a less relaxed fit but not tight. I am 6-4, 250 and wear 40-32. Both loosen up after a brief time after washing. I now have 5 pair of the Roc's and 4 pair of the UR. Would recommend.
I would recommend this product.

I'm an athletic guy and therefore have a smaller waist with some muscle on my legs and butt - these pants do not work for me. It seems they are made for dudes with very skinny lower bodies. The waist (34) fit great but the pants were extremely snug through the crotch, butt and upper legs. They're just made for a way different body type than I have!
