I bought these pants for work. They are a very comfortable fit for all day wear. My only complaint is that there is no fly. Keep up the good work.

Love these pants. Very practical and functional, hard wearing and wash and dry easily. Great for travel as they weigh almost nothing and can be easily packed down in an overnight bag, back pack or carry on. Well made, no lose threads hanging out etc.
I would recommend this product.

I tried on several styles of the women's pants but the fit was uncomfortable. My husband and I are hiking in Yellowstone this summer and needed comfort and versatility. I tried on the Aruba after my husband bought his. They were comfortable and was just was I was looking for in women's sizes but could not find it! I only wear a size 8 but am long waisted so the short zipper in women's pants don't work for me. The size S 30 fit great.
I would recommend this product.

These pants are comfortable and well made. Great pockets!
I bought two pair for our vacation. One pair for my husband and one pair for me.We love the fact that they convert to shorts. It saves us precious room in our luggage.
They do run large but I would rather be comfortable than constricted.
Peace to all
I would recommend this product.

Excellent for the cool mornings then when it starts to warm up all you do is zip into the shorts. Then you are good to go for a great day of fishing also there are very quick to dry if they should get wet.

Let me begin by saying that I am a woman. I buy the men's pants to get the extra length. I wear a medium long (34"). I wear them fly fishing, clay target shooting, hiking and dog training. I have all three colors and like so many others wish that there were more. I remove the liner for a comfortable fit. The pants wear well, dry quickly and look nice. I'd love to have some that were all one piece, without the the zip off legs and liner. That said, as someone who struggles to find pant legs that are long enough, I'm happy Columbia makes these!
I would recommend this product.

I have four pairs of these pants. They are light weight and versatile. I wear them mostly for golf. They are excellent for any weather conditions and dry quickly if wet. The zip-off legs make these pants convert into shorts in seconds. I would highly recommend these to every sportsman.

I have used these pants countless times in various outdoor activities and they are just plain awesome. They are very lightweight, breathable, and due to the elastic waist, very comfortable. Also, these are the fastest drying pants I have ever owned, one minute you are knee deep in a lake/river fishing, and five minutes later hiking back to the truck you are dry.
I would recommend this product.

These pants are great for fishing... especially in the AM when it can be chilly on the water. Love these pants but I hate the liner. I cut out most of the liner as it rubs against my thighs and makes the pants uncomfortable. After I cut out the liner these pants are perfect. I do wish the shorts (when you unzip the leg bottoms) were a little bit longer. Columbia just needs to make the exact same version of these pants without the liner. I've tried on all brands and types of these fishing pants... but the Columbia were the only ones that fit perfect. I have a 35" - 36" waist and I'm 6' 1" tall.
I would recommend this product.

these are so light and comfortable that i do not like taking them off. great for those transitional days when it is a cool ride in the jeep to get to the water but then as soon as the sun gets up the heat is on. i even like to wear them while working in the yard. a bit of protection from the skeeters but still cool enough to enjoy the breeze. they do fit a bit big though so be aware of that. i originally ordered XXl but had to send them back and get a size smaller.
I would recommend this product.

But the mesh inside rides up my leg and gets tight. I am thinking about cutting the elastic inside or taking out the mesh altogether. The pants fit fine otherwise.
