I am 5'8", 140 pounds with an athletic build (not muscular, lean) and purchased these in a light blue size 8. They are a perfect length and fit. Speaking of the fit, it is really different than other hiking pants out there, very fitted with a narrow leg. But, while other, more generously cut pant... Read More

    Usually I am true to size with Columbia brand products, but this pant fit tighter than expected. It worked for me, but ordering one size larger than you usually wear might help with fit, especially if you desire the pant to be looser when doing different types of outdoor activities. The pant is a nice light weight, which makes it suitable for most outdoor activities other than extreme cold. Am rating the pant a 5 because it is a great pant if you can find the size that works for you.

    I like these pants a lot, wish they were available in other colors. I got the Lt. Metal. These pants are lightweight and seem to be sturdy construction. BUT... they are very snug. I am 5'7", 128 lbs and ordered a size 6. I sent them back and re-ordered a size 8, so I'll have to update my comments when they arrive. I concur with many of the other commenters/reviewers - order a size up from your regular size. Even if you've had other Columbia pants (as have I), these are not consistent with the Columbia size 6.

    Nice features but cut too small to fit my athletic build. Normally can wear a 6, but the 8 was too small too.

    I am 5'7" and 125#. I usually wear a size 6, and have ordered other Columbia pants in size 6. The Bug Shield Cargo Pants were very snug. I figured if I gained any weight at all, or if they shrunk at all, I would not be able to wear them. So I am returning and reordering a size 8. I really like the style, so I'm hoping the 8's will be okay. Great pants for the price, just need to figure out the sizing better. As with many of the other commenters, I would recommend sizing up 1 size for these pants.

    I originally bought these for the bugshield properties but have found myself wearing them for several types of occasions. I now own 2 pair. It was late summer by the time I bought them and the bug season was largely over so can't truly verify the bugshield. When I go to Costa Rica this winter maybe I can update their effectiveness. They are a slimmer fit as is mentioned in other reviews but that makes these pants much more attractive and wearable as town pants as well. The narrow legs work great for easily stepping into rain boots.

    • Answer Yes a phone would fit in the pocket. However, like other reviews have said, these are more form fitting than most hiking pants, so depending on how long you're hiking it might not be the most comfortable.

    • Answer There is a narrow zipper pocket on the right leg, and a velcro hip pocket, plus the normal hand pockets. A smart phone would fit in any of them. This is a slim fitting pant, I wear a 6, and have two pairs of these. They are flattering and comfortable. I get them when there is a 40% coupon through Facebook:)

    • Answer There is a fairly deep zippered pocket on the right leg at about mid-thigh that comfortably holds my iPhone 5.

    • Answer They're not technically pants with a cargo pocket, but there is a secondary, zip-top pocket that can easily hold a smart phone. It holds our iPhone 3 with plenty of room to spare.

    • Answer The zippered pocket on the right thigh does hold my iPhone 5 with no trouble.
