Flattering and functional

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These are the pants Ive been looking for. I am 5'5'', 110 pounds and have a hard time finding convertible pants that don't fit like pajama pants. The slim leg is flattering but not restricting, the waist fits perfectly. Even after wearing these for several days in a row, they don't get baggy and saggy. I just wish the shorts were a little shorter, they hit just above the knee. I ordered a size 2 reg.

No stretch in the zipper

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Something went wrong when Columbia was designing these because when standing up they fit like a charm, but any time you have to bend down, sit down, or stretch, you'll feel your legs becoming restricted by the zippers on the legs. And I do not have larger than usual thighs.

Ignoring the leg zipper issue, these pants are everything a woman could want in hiking pants, just don't plan on being comfortable when sitting down in these.

absolute FAVORITE hiking pants!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

My main concern in buying any hiking pants is length, as a 5' 10" woman Columbia always supplies the long lengths I need. But not only do these fit perfectly for leg length, they also are the most flattering pair of hiking pants I have ever owned. The cut and style is very feminine without having to be clingy and sticky. I am a huge fan of convertible pants and love wearing these just as shorts some days. The only thing I could see being a problem for some ladies is the zippered part of the pants. Another customer made mention of this as well but when I sit down, the zippered area constricts a lot and if my thighs were larger, it would be very very uncomfortable. But overall, these are my go-to hiking pants for hot, sticky, humid, tick infested Virginia hikes. A second pair is already in my shopping cart!

Great pants!

These are great pants, they are durable and very comfortable. Not to mention the fact that on a day when it starts out cool you can start out with long pants, and as it gets toasty out you simply unzip the legs and now you have shorts. The pockets are also great for storage of gear, keys, phone and shell/rocks things that one might collect along the way. I strongly recommend these pants to anyone!

Nice pants but not for me.

My experience is that these are true to size. However, for someone who has been riding horses her whole life these pants a quite snug around the thighs. To be more specific, the zipper is a bit too tight. The pants themselves are very stretchy.

Awesome for hiking/backpacking!

The fit is perfect - I'm 5'4" and weigh 115 lbs and I got a size 6. These sit lower than the waist and the back is a little higher than the front. Very comfortable hiking all day with a backpack. I stayed dry and had the bottoms to zip on in the evening. The pant legs have a toggle on the bottom so you can tighten around the ankle to adjust length - great idea! They washed up great.

Should be 4 and a Half Stars

For reference: I'm 5'7-ish, 140 lbs. I bought a size 8.

I love these pants. The fit is absolutely perfect in the waist, thighs, and length.
The FABRIC is stellar. It's soft and super comfortable. I could easily wear them for days on end and still love them.

They breathe and wick moisture away. They have a zipper to convert to shorts that hit right above the knee.

The ONLY reason I didn't give it a full FIVE stars is the snap closure at the waist. There are two snaps and one of them has already broken in the week that I've owned them. It's an easy fix but still disappointing. I would have expected a little better quality for the price tag.

All in all, amazing pants. I'm NOT returning them because I love them too much. Broken snap and all.
