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.

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 would recommend this product.

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.

I purchased the Ultimate Roc pants a few years ago to wear at work. Being a mechanical engineer, I can be demanding on my clothes, especially my pants. Three years and 6 pair of Ultimate Roc Pant's later, I am still obsessed with them. The pants are lightweight and relaxed fit, this makes those long days in the office or in the outdoors much more comfortable. Not only that, these pants look nice in a casual office environment. Many of my co-workers have commented on how these pants seem to resist everything from wrinkles to stains. As an engineer, what more could you ask for!
I would recommend this product.

This is the first pair of trousers I have that's designed specifically for outdoors, so what I found might not be anything special for this type of clothing. Yet I was still impressed with how well the Omni-Shield material worked.
The material is flexible, so it is easy to walk in it. It is indeed water repellent to some degree, but not waterproof. In light rain the droplets tend to bounce off.
I hiked for a couple of hours in dense fog and tall wet grass in these trousers. The bottom part got soaked and muddy, but not excessively. Since I was also wearing long underwear for warmth, my legs didn't actually get wet or cold.
As the weather got sunny, the material dried very quickly, and most of the dirt just fell off naturally. I observed this several times, and it was quite impressive to me. The dirt would have stayed attached to other types type of materials (like denim).
I only had the trousers for about 2-3 weeks, so I cannot tell how long they will last, or how long the material keeps its dirt and water repellent property. I did make heavy use of them during this time though (1-week camping trip), and I was very happy with their performance.
The original fit was not 100% comfortable, but it got adjusted by itself after wearing it for 2-3 days.
I would recommend this product.

I love the pants but HATE the snap. This is the second pair I've owned with a dis-functional snap. It pops open way too often. Actually, once is too often. But the snap mechanism is so fragile that it makes the pants useless.
I figured my first pair with a malfunctioning snap was a fluke. Not so. This is a problem with the whole line.
Columbia, please fix this.

I like these pants. The 34 waist pants fits me loose and comfortable all over. I can wear the 33 but I prefer the looseness. They iron easily if you like to have a crease, which I do, I just have to quickly iron from about the crotch down. I did have Velcro put on one back pocket for my wallet because its relatively loose with the 34's on me. Like I said, I have 4 pair.
I would recommend this product.

I like the materials your pants are made of and the innovative pocket arrangement. On some of your pants there is velcro in the back pockets and these didn't have that. I like that particular feature and missed it in this model. Your pants are among the most comfortable I have ever worn. I buy these long for me (32) so that I can rubber band them to the outside of my boots and keep weeds and cold out. I normally wear a 29.
I would recommend these to anyone who wants a casual comfortable outdoor pant.

This product did not meet my expectations, since it did not match previous Ulimate ROC purchases. Especially in design, fit, and tailoring. The design was less formal than previous purchase, like a pair of Levi's. Too casual. This product mfd in India. Previous purchases mfd in China. Maybe that's the difference. Or was design for Ultimate ROC modified. Not fully satisfied.
I do not recommend this product.

Unlike the original ROC pants, which I still have several pairs of, these were short in the rise and the material seemed less substantial. I also didn't like the new pocket design. I did like the colors. But, basically the pants didn't fit well enough to keep.
I do not recommend this product.
