Heading to Costa Rica to give the shoes a real workout. Anticipate dry feet while the rest gets wet! Comfortable and durable so far....
I would recommend this product.

We ordered the shoes during Thanksgiving. It was really a good deal, but we were disappointed when we received them, because they smelled very badly, even the packing box smelled. We tried to expose it under the sun for a couple of days, but that didnt help. My husband cannot resist trying them on, but the smell just got worse a couple of days later. I hand washed the shoes thoroughly but the smell still stayed. We think the smell came from the shoe pads, it must be the smell from some materials, it was very unpleasant. Since my husband has already wore them, there was nothing we can do about it, we probably will toss them away. I would not recommend my friends to buy the shoes if the smell is so bad.
I do not recommend this product.

Highly recommended
I have worn these shoes walking miles along frozen Atlantic beachfront in Long Island
They are comfortable and offer excellent footing on ice and snow.
Would be even nicer if the tongue was a little longer
I would recommend this product.

I had been eyeing this pair since the beginning of the year, but $145 was way off my budget. One day I decided to take a look at them again, and realized they were in the outlet tab. I did not think twice!
I had never bought shoes from the internet before, because shoe size varies sometimes, but I chose 11 which is what I usually wear and it fit perfectly. I got them when the temperature started to drop where I live, and I knew exactly what I was going to be wearing from then on.
These shoes are awesome! From the aesthetic point of view they go well with anything you're wearing, and the leather gives them a really sophisticated touch. From the utility point of view, they are outstanding on any ground with powerful grip, and the OutDry technology is true to its meaning. I feel like I can walk anywhere and they will keep my feet dry and warm without fail, in the rain, and in the snow.
If you are the kind of person that, like me, wants a pair of shoes that will be useful for any season, any weather, and any social situation, and someone who does not want a big-old boot on your foot, this low-cut Pathgrinder is what you need.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased the Pathgrinder (non waterproof with yellow accent) last year and I'm still enjoying the comfort, style and wear-ability of the Columbia Patgrinder. I've been so pleased that I have come back and bought another pair. I have not been disapointed as the comfort and look just fell right in place the moment I laced them up. Now I'm thinking of picking up a third pair as a backup. Tony P

Comfortable and durable. As other reviewer mentioned it's tongue is a bit short but not a big issue. I have a narrow foot and they fit perfect. With this price don't miss it.

I typically wear wide versions but this one was on sale. I am less reluctant to order regular with Columbia brand because they are so comfortable and break-in well.
I would recommend this product.

I was disappointed my previous style was discontinued. After I got these, I am now very pleased.
They are lighter and very comfortable. However, I did swap out the insole for a Sofsole.
Just completed a month in Turkey working at an archeological site and touring. Comfort all the way!
I would recommend this product.

Very comfortable for a narrow foot. Runs a little small, and the toebox is narrow. Seems decently waterproof and the sole is grippy, but not the stickiest I've seen - will probably be very durable. One improvement would be to have rubber come up over the toes, rather than use reinforced leather in front. Already showing small signs of wear there with light use.
I would recommend this product.

This was one of the best fitting shoes I have had. I use it as a casual walking shoe that I could also wear with jeans. I also wear it when it rains and it keeps my feet dry.

The tongue is a bit short. If it were longer, they would be easier to get on.
