I like'em!....VERY nice material that seems quite durable & thicker than expected but still dries fast. Waist is a bit low but not extreme, so if you have a high waist, you may want to think again. Strong zippers & good mesh pockets. I expect to be wearing these for the next decade, they are THAT go... Read More

    Well made and fits true to size. My only complaint is that there is only one large side leg pocket (right side) Good material

    These fit true to size and look great on my husband. The fabric is nicer--more sturdy--than most convertible pants and they washed up great. Not as many pockets as some styles, but the trade-off is a nicer overall appearance.

    Great travel/hiking pants. trim fit, keep their shape, great material, not too hot, not too cool. water runs off.
    only disappointment is that I cannot find any more of this model -- anywhere, including the Columbia website. Guess they've been discontinued.

    Quality product. Just what I was looking for.


    The fit is snug throughout. Including the legs. The zipper to remove the lower leg does not stretch in circumference. For those of us of a "lean" build, this is no problem. But folks with muscular quads might find the legs over restricting and uncomfortable.

    The fabric is heavier than on many other convertible pants I'd looked. That makes for a "warmer" pant... but... that's what the convertible option is designed to deal with.

    While heavier, the fabric has a fair amount of stretch to it, which makes for comfortable scrambling.

    There is one zippered thigh pocket on the right side. It's small and oddly shaped. It will hold a small map, or a snack, but not much else


    If the fit works, this is first rate addition to the outdoor wardrobe.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by AT hiker's mom from Belfast Maine on Tuesday, May 13, 2014
    These pants were bought for my 16 year old son who is hiking the Appalachian Trail. He is tall and slim 6' and 150lbs and they fit much better than those with a "relaxed" fit, but definitely not tight. The fabric is not super thin, so maybe not best for very hot weather, but will be rugged for several months wear as his only pants. They will be his shorts too as they zip off. He did say that the he could feel the zipper but thought he would get used to it. They look very nice -- good fit. Green color kind of looks like work pants, but in the woods who cares? Surely they will not show the dirt.

    • Answer As with most all Columbia convertible pants that I've purchased, the shorts come down my thigh a bit more than half way. I to have long legs. These pants make excellent Fall, Winter and Spring pants ... also fine in summer at higher altitudes with cooler termps,

  • Question “are these pants cool enough for a day of surf fishing in the hot Florida summer sun”
    Asked on 4/8/2014 6:09:37 PM by Darrell The Fisher from Florida
    • Answer yes. I surf fish with them here in California. Great pant. They dry fast.
      Answered on 4/8/2014 9:13:19 PM by MARKUS BURGER from Los Angeles
    • Answer Not really. I just got back from fishing in NC and I had to zip the pant legs off and the temperature was only 75 degrees.

  • Question “Do these pants have elastic in the waist?”
    Asked on 4/1/2014 9:34:29 AM by Charlie from California
    • Answer There is not elastic in the waist.
      Answered on 4/1/2014 9:58:25 AM by Product Specialist Greg from Sierra Trading Post
    • Answer Unfortunately NOPE! This was a concern form me as well because on long hikes I lose weight and the pants would get too loose. I also bought the white sierra convertible pants in M size (32-35" waist), and they were basically the same price but were a lighter material but they have elastic on each side of the waist. For hiking I'd prefer those. Hope that helps.

    • Answer No ... but they are true to size.

  • Question “Do these pants have a cargo pocket on the leg or a zip security pocket?”
    Asked on 3/17/2014 9:26:07 PM by Lost Dutchman from Superstition Mountains
    • Answer No, they're not cargo pockets, and are indeed a zip security pocket on the right. By the way, they are the best Colombia convertible pants I've ever purchased ... which is significant. They are very true to size.
      Answered on 3/17/2014 9:35:25 PM by Doc B from Augusta, GA
    • Answer these pants do not have cargo pockets but it does have a small zipped up pocket right underneath the right pant pocket.
