How well this item performed in its intended use, and beyond.
I have used Columbia since the mid 1990's as a skier and absolutely love the product. I have sold Columbia product working in the big and tall clothing industry and still believe it is one of the best products for quality and style in the outdoors. This pant would receive excellent marks in all categories but the length of the rise (distance cut from crotch to waist) holds the grade down. I have worn Columbia Jackets with great satisfaction but the pants weren't cut for my build which is larger in the thigh and seat with a longer rise than the average. As a clothing professional I realize they cannot accommodate each specific need nor do I expect it. This outdoor pant is the best option per dollar spent for a recreational skier/snowboarder. My recommendation is to buy one size up in this pant if you have a long rise and use suspenders to hold them in place. If you are a short rise buy your actual size and I believe you will be pleased (you will only need suspenders if you find that you typically have trouble with your pants sliding down). Good luck and great snow sporting to you!
I would recommend this product.
