DON'T LOSE THE RECIPE!!! My first pair of Roc's served me for years. The are now like the Oliver Wendell Holmes poem of The Wonderful One Horse Shay ( it lasted 100 years to a day and then went to pieces all at once). after months of searching in stores, I was so grateful to discover i could order the Roc pants on-line AND they are the same and better! Same great fabric, fit and construction...AND ... a better waist snap and cell phone/ pen pocket. I ordered two and am thrilled with them.
I would recommend this product.

I was expecting more of a durable fabric. This pant wears and functions more as an everyday pair of khakis. Very comfortable however.
I would recommend this product.

The Roc pant is a super tough outdoor/casual workhorse. I wear them to my day to day 9-5 job and they look great and are very comfortable. I also go straight to the hiking trail with them and they are great. A true pair of pants that are perfect for work and hard play.
I would recommend this product.

They are indeed at least an inch longer than other styles of the same size. The snap is worthless, it will not stay snapped. And the material is thinner than my ROCs of old. If you want old style Granite Cloth and a waist that stays secure, go with the Rugged Pass. The articulated knee is a little tricky to iron, but they have a button (although I wish it was the rivet style instead of sewed), and the material is sufficient for field as well as office wear. These new ROCs are going back for exchange.
I do not recommend this product.

Here is the only issue, and it is an issue with ALL Columbia pants-including shorts. After just a couple of months, the snap closure integrity is compromised allowing for the pants or shorts to become unsnapped. I have used my pocketknife to go in where the flange is located (that causes the snap to work) and narrow its width by bending it so that the rivet will stay in place.
I would recommend this product.

Somebody gave me a pair in 2008, and I've bought several pairs since then. I wear them for professional tree-climbing because they give me more range of motion than jeans. The cotton material is very tightly woven so it is stronger and more puncture-resistant than denim even though it is thinner and lighter. I use the thigh pocket a lot to keep a knife and a sharpie marker within reach even when the other pockets are blocked by my climbing harness. I hope Columbia never takes these out of production, they are my best pants ever.
I would recommend this product.

I thought I was getting a similar product previously bought, however this material is lightweight, not hardwearing and the fit is mis-leading.Not slightly small, classic fit seems to be at the other end of the scale, certainly not the same quality I had previously from Columbia.
I do not recommend this product.

I've owned 3 pairs for 2 years and hoped to buy more. However I realized that Columbia has eliminated their best feature, the right hip "gear pocket", which should have been called the "smart phone" pocket. I don't now how anyone can carry an iPhone in any other pant's pocket comfortably. The lesser Roc pant has a similar pocket but it is just 1/2" too small to allow easy access. The Ultimate Roc pants also have a reliable button rather than snap closure. Had Columbia seen fit to leave well enough alone I would have given them 5 stars, and bought 5 more pairs today.

Bought one pair to try. Instantly ordered eight more pairs to have good supply at my main home and my mountain home. My pants pocket contents every day include: car keys, small Bluetooth headset, ink pen, notebook stylus, pocket knife, multi tool, and small flashlight. I also have a concealed carry permit, so oftentimes also carry handgun and spare magazine. I am a serious Jeep rock crawler, dirt biker, backpacker, outdoorsman. The pockets have ample room for everything I carry, while at the same time distribute contents so well that they completely avoid the "squirrel with full cheeks" effect. These are hands down the most versatile casual pants I have ever owned. Their style is casual outdoor, but not so rugged that my wife won't let me wear them to dinner at our country club. Complete "tactical" function with zero "tactical" look. Fabric and construction are plenty tough for brambles in wood and field, but also plenty supple for comfort . Dear Columbia, PLEASE DO NOT STOP MAKING THESE PERFECT "GOLDILOCKS JUST RIGHT" ROC PANTS!!
I would recommend this product.

My husband loves these pants and I can't find them in our local store anymore. However, when I ordered the same size as he is currently wearing, they were too small and had to be returned for the next size. Other than that, they are great!!!

I have to say, I am a little disappointed. I've had the Roc pants for several years. The quality was outstanding, the fit was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing. With that in mind, I saw the opportunity to replace my pants with new ones at a great price. I received the pants last week and noticed the huge difference. The fabric was lighter weight, the snap changed to a cheaper snap, they fit tighter than the original design, the inseam was no longer a double inseam but a single inseam. Why would you fix what wasn't broke???? Why the changes. Was it just for price? I would pay the full price for the real deal. Shame on you Columbia for changing this design.
I would recommend this product.

These pants are still my favorite pant, but the fabric is much thinner. They also ran almost a size small. No, I have not gained weight. The delivery time was painfully slow.

I have been wearing Columbia Roc pants for over 10 years. They wear like iron, wash like a dream, and best of all have a pocket for my cell phone...I have never had an issue with these pants. I have in my closet these and the Ultimate Roc's.

a snap button above the zipper instead of a traditional button? what were they thinking. No matter what size you are, they stay snapped until you sit down then "pop". I would return but I already cut the tags and worn them (once).
I do not recommend this product.
