I typically wear loose denim or twill cargos but was looking for something with a nicer looking fit. These pants are comfortable through the seat and articulate well through my daily activities. I service computers and will crawl under desks, move equipment to and from storage etc. These are handsome looking and breathe just enough whether working in an office or in an unheated garage. The ripstop should make them durable enough for outdoor adventures but I haven't taken them out yet. The zipper pocket pulls smoothly and is easy to grasp with the tab sewn on. It holds my larger style phone with room for other items if needed. They didn't have one of the colors in my length so I ordered a size long. They look passable cuffed as the material isn't too heavy but I think I will go ahead and get them hemmed.
I would recommend this product.

These are good looking pants. I have worn 34" waist for years but these 34" were too small, couldn't begin to button them.
I would recommend this product.

Really like the material. feels very nice. Also the pockets have nice placement and depth. They sit nicely on your actual waist which i'm not used to but didn't fell too odd since they were very comfortable. I would say they run a size too small around the waist. I normally wear a 30 but had to send them back for a 32. If you get them too small it is very annoying because the material on the rim of the waist is very sharp and cuts into your skin.
Good price right now as well as I got 2 pairs for the price of what normally is one pair.
I would recommend this product.

I got these on sale for a very reasonable price and wish more colors were available. The zippers are not exactly smooth, but they work. The only other thing I do not like about these pants is that I have to wear a size 40 waist...
When I wear them, I want to be outside. Maybe they will inspire enough adventure to require smaller size!
I would recommend this product.

ordered 34inch waist and it fit more like a 32 inch. Still waiting now a week for replacement. Also ordered a different pair of Columbia pants that fit perfect so I am not sure if this style pant runs small or it was mislabeled. Also, bothered that I had to pay return shipping so a $50 pair of pants are now costing over $60.
I do not recommend this product.

These pants are very durable. My brother gave me a pair he outgrew and I really liked them so I ordered two pair. I expected them to be to small but the description on web site said "true to size" and they fit perfectly. The metal zipper insures long life. I wear these to work everyday and by wearing these I am ready to take my hounds out to the National Park Trails 5 minutes from my small house. I plan to buy 3 more pair.
I would recommend this product.

I absolutely love these pants! They are probably the best pants I've purchased in several years. I didn't even try them on in the store but I bought my normal size and they fit perfectly when I first put them on. The pants seem very durable; I really like the fabric they chose. I believe these pants will last a very long time. But I have one very critical comment to make. The zipper for the fly is very short, it's only four inches, so the aperture is extremely tight when you need to use the urinal. I own two pairs of these pants and they're both the same, so this isn't an anomaly on just one pair of these pants. I've never owned a pair of pants that I felt the zipper was too short, and I'm 42 years old, so this is a off-beat complaint to make, but it's something I felt so motivated to comment about that I created this account just to say something on the Columbia web page. Please use a longer zipper when you design pants in the future, Columbia. Otherwise, these pants are fantastic.
I would recommend this product.
