The Columbia Men's Ultimate Roc Pant is just that; the ultimate pant for your adventures on rocks, big or small. Durable cotton canvas material features Omni-Shade and Omni-Shield treatments to protect the pant and you against that which plays as much a part of your mountain and desert getaways as the vistas themselves.

  • Omni-Shield coating offers a barrier against stains and moisture to keep the material looking good even during hard use

Great all around outdoors pant!

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit:Runs large

My Step dad loves wearing these when hes outside working around the house, while hiking, and casually. I sent him a pair for his birthday and he's already worn them multiple times. He loves how comfortable and versatile these pants are. They do run slightly on the large side.

Unanswered Question

Do these pants have a gusseted crotch?


Like Reviews State, They Run Large

  • Fit:Runs large
  • Height: 6'0"
    Weight: 180 lbs
    Size Purchased: 34x32

Like the reviews below stated, the pants do run large and I have to return mine for a smaller pair. With that being said, they seem to balance between being rugged and still looking nice with a lot of carrying options. The running large thing isn't an issue, that's just the chance you take when ordering offline. I'm 6', weigh 180 and my normal pants are 34x32. These were way too baggy at the ankle so I am going to order 34x30. If you're the same build as me I would recommend going with 34x30.


Good pants

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs large

Classic fit. Good features such as the zipper pockets and the snap button. The waist seems to run a little bit larger than what I'm used to a 32 being, but not a big deal.


A Columbia classic

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Wonderfully tough without sacrificing comfort. Count on wearing these puppies for years - and they just get better with age - until they finally deteriorate from use and wash. I prefer these over the ROCs, but only just, mainly because of the waist snap. The "cell phone" pocket on the leg is ideal - even for a smart phone - quick access without worrying about dropping anything.

5 out of 5 starbursts baby!


Nice Looking Pants

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit:True to size

I bought these as a Christmas gift for my dad and he loves them. He said he is a solid 34x30 and these fit him perfectly in the waist and inseam. My dad has had a number of these Ultimate Roc pants over the years and he clearly loves them as he keeps going back for more.


Great Pants

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

Picked up a pair in Alpine Tundra color. Love em so far. Sizing is nice, not too tight, not too baggy - good fit for stocky builds like me. I'm 5'10" 185, and the 34x30 is a perfect fit. The fabric isn't as thick as my Mountain Khakis, but the fit is better. Time will tell how they wear. I work out in rugged places alot (Geologist), and generally wear pants out quickly.


Great for hiking

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

Good Material, soft canvas not stiff as a board like some other brands and ample leg room for wearing thermals under. Great range of movement done several 5-7 mile hikes not a snag yet.

What color is alpine tundra?

And do the grill or India ink come in 40x34?

Alpine Tundra is a brownish color with a hint of green in it. The Grill and the India Ink both come in 40x34 however we do not have those variants in stock.


Fan of pants

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs large

If you've gotta wear pants, you might as well wear these. I tried these out in comparison with the standard Roc pants and ultimately chose the Ultimates over the standards. Not for any negative aspect of the Roc pants, but just that I felt the Ultimates were just more superior for what I was looking for in my pants.

The water/dirt repellency is great, and the pants are oh so soft and pliable right out of the package. I appreciate the fit on these over the Roc pants and these are a little less baggy. The sizing seems to be just a little bit big. I'm 6'1" and 180lbs and usually go for a 33x32 if they've got them and I found the 32x32 to fit much better than the 34x32's I tried. I've been wearing the same pair of these since I got them a week ago and I find they work for all occasions. Stylish enough to wear to church and yet durable enough to fall down a mountain in.

Also, on a side note, my wife says they make my butt look awesome.


Runs big

    I have to agree with the other reviewer, these pants run a bit big in the waist. Dig the fact that it is UVA/UVB protective. Great quality pant. Very durable.

    what is the smallest waist the ROC pants come in?

    The smallest waist that BC offers and that is made by Columbia is 30. Hope this helps you out:)

    Does the Ultimate Rod Pant come in a size 31 waist? Thanks, Dale

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    the Columbia ultimate roc pant is an excellent pant in casual style, color,material weight, and material softness. The only issue i have had with this pant is in the sizing, it tends to be 2 sizes to large in the waist, The length has always been true to size.The 5 pair that i have purchased through 2012 from different sources on the internet have all had the same issue with sizing. These pants have been perfect for someone like me ( a 55 year old cowboy) who always wore bluejeans but at times wants to look a little more dressed up.

    Are there ROC-like pants without the pockets...

    Are there ROC-like pants without the pockets on the sides of the legs? I like the material and design - they fit my work - but I need something that looks slightly more formal. A ROC pant without the side pocket on the leg would do this.

    Yes- the Columbia Roc Pants(Not the Ultimate) Item # COL1220.

    Only has 2 front pockets, 2 back pockets, and 1 stash pocket that's inside one of the front pockets.

    Slightly different fabric too- this one has canvas and the other has a lighter cotton material.

    All in all the same pants minus the zippered pockets and Omni-Shield coating

    Would the Alpine Tundra be considered a...

    Would the Alpine Tundra be considered a grey color?

    Yes, they'll be a grey color. The pictures we have on the site for these pants at the moment are very accurate to what the color will actually look like



      I bought these pants to wear with a boy scout uniform, because there wasn't any way I was wearing actual scout pants. Very comfortable in the Georgia humidity, good looking, and lots of pockets.


      Not as Good as ROC Pants

        After having worn both the ROC and Ultimate ROC Pants, I prefer the ROC Pants. The ROC Pants have a roomier cut, two extra belt loops in the back that keep your belt from riding up and prefer the zippered security pocket up behind the open pocket for your hands. The zippered pocket for the Ultimate ROC pant is by your knee and anything you place in it bounces off your knee when you walk.

        If they made the ROC Pant with the water/dirt repellant it would be perfect.

        Ultimate Roc pant 46 inch waist?

        Hey Randall,

        Unfortunately not. The largest waist we currently have is a 40.
