Columbia Men's PFG Airgill Chill™ Pant

The perfect companion to our Airgill family of shirts, this highly-evolved pant takes active cooling and breathability to all new levels. Gill-like venting at the thigh sucks air like a fish out of water, facilitating a refreshing, cooling feeling even in the warmest weather. But that’s just the start.

I used these pants in the low desert where the weather regularly climbed well above 100F. I found these pants to keep me cooler than other hot weather convertible pants I've worn, and the vents really help to make the most out of a stifling environment. I was worried that the thin, flimsy looking material wouldn't stand up to the harsh desert terrain, but they have stood up well against the rocks and cacti.
My only complaint is that I immediately encountered the same unstitching of the waist pockets.
These pants are great in hot weather, just be prepared to not use your pockets or you'll be fumbling for your keys and change lost deep in your pants leg.
I would recommend this product.

I wear these instead of shorts, and they are light and cool enough for the hottest days. They run a little tight in the seat and waist, (I'm 6'4" ), so I ordered a size up, and my wife just had to sew two little tucks in the waist, and it fits perfectly now. Otherwise, I think the color and fabric is so good, I give them 5 stars!
I would recommend this product.

Good pants. I don't go fishing, but I could see how they are good fishing pants, especially in the summer. I look for light weight pants that allow good air flow for hiking, and these fit the bill. The gills in the inside of legs keep you cool during high heat. Recommended for summer time and strenuous activity levels. They are very light weight.
I would recommend this product.

I'm sure the pants would have been awesome but they were too small so I had to give them away.

great pair of pants.
the fit is true.
the material is very thin, but sturdy.
these pants are made for warm weather activity because its like wearing a second skin.
im very satisfied with the quality and my choice.
I would recommend this product.

These pants are extremely light weight and they are also extremely comfortable. While the pants are a bit more expensive I think it is worth a couple extra bucks to get a phenomenal pair of pants
I would recommend this product.

I have owned these pants for about 4 months and immediately tore a hole in them with a cactus. But the hole never grew larger that it was originally. These pants are light weight and dry quickly. Wearing them in the desert I hoped they would breath a little more, but all and all they are a marked improvement all the other desert pants I own.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these for my husband, who works in a warehouse and cannot wear shorts. With the 100 degree weather we've been having, he said these pants were great. It was like the difference between night and day compared to the jeans he had been wearing. The cooling slots on the inside of the leg really work. I am very glad I found these on this website. Will be ordering him another pair in a different color and also a pair for my daughter who works in the same place.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these to wear with my Gills Shirt. The pants are a good fit, true to size & very light weight. I have been wearing them as casual wear. They look nice & pack well. I will test drive them on the boat soon. I plan to take them to Aruba for my do all slacks.
I would recommend this product.

I've had my Airgill Chill pants for a few weeks now, and I have to say they've exceeded all my expectations. Not only are they extremely comfortable and lightweight, but the ventilation is better than any pant I've ever worn. In addition to the terrific breathebility, the fabric really does cool when you sweat or get it wet. I fished a tourney last week in 90 degree weather and couldn't believe how cool these pants kept me.
My only criticism is the fit is slightly small in the butt / crotch area. If you wear a size 30 waist, the waist size is fine but the seat / front of the pants is a little snug. I would recommend getting one size larger than your waist size, which should compensate for the slightly snug fit.
I would recommend this product.

These pants are so light, comfortable, and repel the sun perfectly. I just hope the pocket stitching holds up. I'm ordering the other color I don't own now. These are my new favorite pants - light, cool, easy to pack.

These pants are great on those cool mornings when you know it will get warm quick. These pants will keep the cool air off your legs in the early morning, and by 11am when the sun is beating down they will let the breeze flow. If you happen to get them wet they will dry very quickly. The materials are top notch, and a great lightweight pant overall. The pants fit slightly large in the waist and just a little long, so I usually have to roll the legs up a little, and roll the waist a little to get a snug fit when wet, but when dry they fit great.
I would recommend this product.

I am on the water at least five to six days a week in the Southwest Florida/Naples area as a tour guide. This product is great when you have a slight chill in the morning and need some cover, and then have a 90 plus degree day in the sun. The ventilation on the inside of the leg makes this the most comfortable, breathable pair of pants I have ever worn!
I would recommend this product.
