I absolutely loved the original model of this pant. The original cool creek (model I ) had a nice slim fit in the legs and a comfy waist with a good fit in the butt and crotch. The little side leg pocket was nice and small and the front pockets were inconspicuous.
The new model (cool creek II) has a terrible fit. The waist is too high, the crotch seems tilted too forward and now the legs taper. The small leg pocket is now huge and covers almost the entire thigh...who would want to have a huge pocket right above their knee? The front pockets now have a little cutout that is obnoxious and the closure on the rear pockets is even more difficult to get into.
I am really disappointed in the new fit as the original model was my favorite pair of pants ever. Too bad you cannot get the original model in the buffalo color.
I do not recommend this product.

Bought a pair of Columbia Cool Creek Pants for Work. After wearing them found them so comfortable that I have since bought three more pair for outdoor and general casual wear. Size was perfect especially the length. I am short and always have issues with trouser length, but he Cool Creek Pant was true to size. Great Pants!
I would recommend this product.

Bought these for a change from the same old hum-drum denim, and cotton khaki. Trying them on, I felt a bit like the emperor, like I was wearing nothing at all. These pants are light and have a ton of give. The fabric is rough like cotton but stretches like poly. I picked up two pair just because they fit so nice.
I would recommend this product.

If you like pants that cling to your legs, then these are for you.
Otherwise, avoid these uncomfortable pants. or you will be unhappy, especially in warm weather. Columbia's claims for this product are exaggerated.

I have worn the same size in pants for several years. The other customers rated this as True To Size so I ordered the same size Ive always ordered. It was my first pant from Columbia. When it arrived it fit fine with the exception of the waistband. The waistband was more than one size too small. The quality of the pant is good, however I'll have to wait to wear this pant. I ordered a second pair in a larger size. I also ordered a second pair of water resistant pant to wear. I wanted to make sure I got a pant that fit so I ordered the Paso Alto pant in the larger size, thinking that Columbia ran small as a whole. When I received the next two pair the Cool Creek fit, however I was swimming in the Paso Alto pants. Clearly these pants are sized small and it's not a universal Columbia sizing problem.
I would recommend this product.

My second pair, the first a gift. This particular pair was on sale which made it even sweeter. I have several Columbia sun shirts and overall am impressed with the looks and quality. Living in sunny Arizona, these are just what the dermatologist ordered!

I have a pair of the Men's Cool Creek Stretch Pant and they fit perfect , now they have gone and changed , the fit in the crotch on the mens cool creek II pants are way smaller than the original pants , they need to make the crotch a little longer on these pants & also maybe make them in the color Black , still like them but will get more use out of my first pair even though I've lost weight and they are big in the waist the crotch is still better in them
I do not recommend this product.

Very comfortable pants, I like that the material has a bit of stretch. Also that they shed water, I'll be buying more in the future.
And please bring back those fantastic merino wool socks, I love them, warm soft and really comfy too. I went to the outlet store and they had only 2 pair !
I would recommend this product.

One of the most comfortable pairs of pants I own for all weather conditions. Very durable and sturdy, yet lightweight and great in cold or hot weather. I bought a Tusk pair at an outlet store (only color they had) and immediately went home and purchased the other two colors online. Has a nice zipper pocket on the right side that is subtle so it doesn't look like you are wearing cargo pants, but great for securing valuable things. My only complaint is that I wish it came in a 33 inch waist and not just 32 or 34, though the 34 works fine with a belt.
I would recommend this product.

I've worn the original Cool Creek pants, and now the updated version (Cool Creek II) and have to say I really like these pants! They are comfortable and have enough stretch to accommodate activities like bouldering and hiking. The fabric is almost sheer, so it repels water and feels very lightweight, although it also blocks wind to a degree. I hope Columbia keeps making these pants for a long time, 'cause I'll keep buying them.
I would recommend this product.

I've had these pants for only 2-3 weeks, but I wear them all the time. They are extremely light and comfortable. Pockets are deep and made of a mesh material, and the side zipper pocket is useful and stays hidden until needed. They do wrinkle a little, not a big deal for outdoor wear though.
Some reviewers thought the fit was small. I thought it was exactly right; however, the rise is a bit shorter than most pants, so that may be the issue. It is not a problem for me (5'9", 160 lbs). I am considering a second pair in a different color if they wear like my last Columbia pants did.
I would recommend this product.

Besides being very lightweight and comfortable to wear, these pants have a little stretch for any activity. I intend to fish, golf and work in these pants. Nice deep pockets keeps change, keys and phone from falling out when getting in and out of a car seat, sofa or bar stool. The maintenance and cleaning could not get any easier. Throw them in the washer, really no special care is needed, give them a quick shake and either hang dry or into the dryer. No ironing, just hand pat them down and they are ready to be worn like new again. Great travel pant due to convenient pockets and comfort.
I'll never wear cotton or cotton blend khakis again. I bought one pair and have since bought 3 more!
I would recommend this product.

These pants are great for your active travel and casual needs. Even looks good with a blazer despite the tough construction. The tapered fit is fine since the fabric stretches. Great details: snaps, zippers and pockets. Great value compared to other brands...NF, MK etc. Bought 3 pairs and love'm.
