Good Buy for the Price
Verified Buyer Reviewed by TravelGirl from New Hampshire on Thursday, May 7, 2015
Size is true-to-fit and while the quality isn't top-notch it is good enough for day hikes. I was specifically looking for a light-weight hiking pants for the summer, and the Columbia Sportswear Silver Ridge Pant was everything I was looking for, for the price range I could afford. The pants roll up to just below the knee and the button is hidden under a pant flap so it wont snag on any loose branches on the trails. The material is okay for light, misty rain anything heavier and you are definitely going to get wet. Dirt and debris can be easily dusted off. The material seems pretty flimsy and haven't dared to test them out on rocky terrain or multi-day hikes that are a bit more strenuous. Like I said, I was looking for easy day hike pants. The pockets are average size pockets for women's pants, so don't expect to hold much more than a pocket knife and your car keys. All-in-all, the pants are a good buy for the price.
