I primarily use these pants in a mixed conifer forest and a scrubland environment. In a typical day at work I cover 5-10 miles over rugged terrain and through brush. These pants are very sturdy. I have yet to rip a pair. The crotch is well cut to allow clamoring over logs without constricting movement. In fact, they haven't yet worn through at the crotch, like most pants that are heavily used tend to. The water repellancy is good for quick spashes, but extended moisture will wick through to the skin. On the plus side, the material dries quickly and repells stains. The lightweight material also sheds burrs well, but if walking through thorned plants, you will feel them.
I would recommend this product.

First, I love these pants - very comfortable, lightweight but sturdy fabric, look good dressed up or down. I have 4 pairs, they have replaced my jeans and dress cotton twills. However, the color selection is limited. I ordered a pair in the Flax color - what arrived is much darker than the photo above. Not what I wanted so I have returned them. There are some issues that many other reviewers have pointed out. The snap at the waist is weak. It will pop open with the slightest pressure. I find I have to wear a belt with these pants all the time. This must be corrected. The color selection is limited - the darker colors all look very similar. What would be great is a true khaki color and maybe a dark slate blue and/or black. Overall, these pants are among the best items in my closet and I wear them a lot, but there are improvements to be made.
I would recommend this product.

I found my first pair in Ross at a huge discount, and wear nothing else since. Just ordered two pair Grill and Flax... HEY GUYS I NEED SOME OTHER COLOR OPTIONS IN 40x34 PLEEEAAASSE!
PROS:These pants are awesome, durable, and comfortable. Mostly used at my job as a teacher. But cool enough to wear out on a Friday night!
CONS: The only con for me is the color difference between whats on the site and what i actually received. The Flax is much darker than depicted, which is fine. But the Grill is mostly greenish and a bit blueishgray. (adding pic shortly). Not really the color I wanted or expected . But I am keeping them.
OVERALL: I will continue to buy and so should you!
I would recommend this product.

Overall a good product. Water resistant and cotton seemed too good to be true, but both function well. The phone pocket only works with older smaller phones though. It seems that we need ever increasing space for these electronic appendages.

Pants are nice but wrinkle easy. Length is actually true, I could have gone down one length as the ones were tall.

These are quality pants that look great and feel great. 2 caveats. 1. They are a little wide around the ankles. The taper is minimal so if you are looking for that slimmer fit, this is not your pant.
2. They shrink up about a 1/2 length. Cant blame columbia for that as most cotton pants do. Order 1 length longer.
I would recommend this product.

I love these pants. I've given up wearing jeans and wear these all the time. The fit is loose but not baggy. The pockets are deep. I have been buying these for the past four years. That said, these pants have changed over time. The fabric is a heavier weight than it was a few years ago, which is good in the winter but not in the summer. Last year, the color "Grill" was more dark grey, this year it is more very dark green. If the color changes, the name should change. Please keep the extended size range.
I would recommend this product.

I live in these pants. Have them in every color and when they wear out I buy another pair. Comfortable, great fit. Prefer ROC pants over jeans. another primary reason I wear them is the perfect sized cell phone pocket so I do not have to carry my phone in my back pocket. My wife calls them my "iPants".
Only reason did not rate 5 stars...bought new iPhone 6 and does not fit in the pocket anymore. Time for a re-design...and FAST! Don't want to look for competing brand with larger pocket.
I would recommend this product.

As a 6'5" man, it's great to have access to purchase comfortable casual wear like the Men’s Ultimate ROC Pant. These pants are well made and run true to size.
I frequently have problems with pants shrinking in length, but these haven't displayed this problem. Thees pants are extraordinarily comfortable, and I find myself ordering additonal pairs in different colors.
The Men’s Ultimate ROC Pants have become my go-to choice for casual pants, and they wear like iron. I especially appreciate the side pocket in the right leg which relieve's me from wearing a hole in my back rear pocket when sitting on my wallet. There's also a small pocket on the left leg that I find very handy for storing my car keys.
I'll be a very unhappy camper if Columbia ever drops this item in the 36" length.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered these pants in my regular size, which is 33x32 but they were much too large. I exchanged them at the company store for a size smaller, but legs are still too wide. I am going to keep the pants, but I am not satisfied about this purchase as I thought I would be. My rating is significantly based on expectations but overall it is a quality product for someone who likes a relaxed fit.
I would recommend this product.

I really love these pants. VERY comfortable and versatile. Look good at work and great for lounging. I like the sleekness of the pockets and the fabric. I bought one pair and then bought a second and will buy another soon. They are generous and relaxed fitting. I can wear them in summer OR, in winter, and there is room for me to put on some long-underwear.
CONS: Would like a couple more color choices.
Some of the seams frayed on the left side near the thigh pocket and also along the edge of the back pockets. Those seems could be beefed up. But, it might be that I am pretty hard on pants, in general, so no biggie. Perhaps they can beef the fabric up.....then, again, I love the light weight of the fabric and its versatile composition.
I would recommend this product.

Columbia has been my favorite casual pants and shorts for a long time. These ultimate ROC pants fit well and are extremely confortable. The material is very light and thin...hope they last. Wish the bottoms of the pant legs is a little more straight legged, not flared. Will be buying more.

I found these pants at a local Cabellas for my husband. He previously wore a similar product that Carhart does not produce any longer, so we were in search for a lightweight, non-jean product he could wear to work. These fit the bill.
Only bad thing I could say about the entire transaction was that once we received the email stating "your order is on its way" it took at least another five plus days to receive it.
I would recommend this product.

I had purchased 2 pairs of these - and now they are my go to pants for everyday life and light outdoor activities (day hikes, cragging, etc). I love the hidden zipper side pocket for my wallet. The button could be improved upon, but aside from that these pants are perfect. I just ordered 4 more pairs.
I would recommend this product.

Great for travel. Doesn't wrinkle much, easy to clean, can be a little dressy or a little casual. I ordered the Flax color. It was a little mare brown than pictured, but OK. The only improvement would be some Velcro or snap to secure the back pockets.
I would recommend this product.
