Columbia Saturday Trail Stretch Convertible Pants - Women'sis rated4.0909out of5by11.
Rated4out of5byBakesterfromHike in Comfort with ConfidenceI bought these for hiking in Wyoming and had to be ready for bushwacking mountain hikes, badlands desert environment, and possible snow in September. These pants offered perfect protection and great comfort for all these scenarios. The only reason I didn't give it four stars is because I liked the Mountain Hard Wear Convertible pants, which I bought at the same time, a little better in terms of fit.

Rated4out of5byWander Woman 00fromZip off pantsI liked the material and the fit - for zip off pants these pants look good! However, although I have a fairly average build, my upper legs felt confined and I could feel the zipper around my thighs. Great pants if your thighs are slim!

Rated4out of5bymerryberryfromConvenient and lightSo happy to find zip-off pants that are mid-rise and comfortable at the waist. The waist band has nice soft material so it does not rub when backpacking. The shorts are a nice length just above the knee. They have a flattering fit and do not ride down too low at the waist. (I used to love Northface and Prana pants when I was a size 4-6, but gained some weight around the middle and can't wear the tight-fitting low-rise styles anymore.) These pants are very comfortable when hiking or standing. My only complaint is the zipper wraps around the thigh too tight when in a seated position. This makes car rides a bit uncomfortable. The problem is that the zipper sits closer to the knee when you are standing, but rides up the thigh when sitting. People with skinny thighs will probably not have this problem. :) My only other complaint is the sizing runs a little small. I wear size 8 in jeans but seem to need a size 10 in hiking pants because I am too curvy for the slender fit.

Rated3out of5byZoochicafromflattering fitI bought these pants to wear on a field expedition to Belize (think forest, not coast) where pants are often necessary and opportunities to wear shorts are a sporadic but welcomed. I liked the length of these pants. I am 5'10 with a 32.5" inseam and they were long enough (that does not happen all of the time!). The legs taper in at the zip off point (which hit me about 5 inches above the knees) and this restricted movement and chaffed a little, especially when I was sweaty. Perhaps this was due to my height and the taper hitting higher on my leg than it was designed to.
Regardless, the material held up to some rugged circumstances very well. They also did not get, for lack of a better word, "funky" smelling like my other pants did in the constant heat and humidity. This was a plus because I did not have a lot of laundry opportunities!
Speaking of laundry, the zipper separated halfway through its length the first time I washed them (at home). I thought this might be a fluke, but it happened in subsequent washes as well (even on the gentle cycle in a front loader washer). They unzipped and zipped back together correctly no problem each time, but now I wash the legs and shorts together in the same load, but separated from each other.

Rated5out of5byaliz0611fromConvenience and a perfect fitThese are the best-looking hiking pants I've ever had: just tight enough at the thighs and butt that they make my legs look really good, yet they're comfortable. It's easy to remove and rejoin the legs with the top of the pants. The only con is that you can feel the zipper around your thigh even in "shorts mode". It's a slightly bothersome feeling at first, but you get used to it.

Rated4out of5byadm0046fromFinally!I have been searching for a pair of convertible pants for an upcoming trip to Peru (Amazon & Inca Trail). All the pants I have tried on have fit horribly. I was SO happy to find these because they actually fit both my waist and my thighs.
It's true that the zipper is tighter and doesn't stretch. But I'm not sure how this could be remedied unless there is an elastic zipper out there on the market. What these pants have going for them is that the shorts are bermuda length and so the zipper is closer to your knee than where your quads are likely to be the largest.
Not like it matters that much, but these pants actually look good--something that cannot be said of most convertible pants. They still have plenty of pockets, but I know I wont look like a trekker all the time while I'm touring cities while travelling. I think I'll get a lot of use out of these pants.

Rated5out of5bySky DogfromGreat comfortThese are so comfortable, I have to keep myself from Waring the shorts all the time. I did buy a size up because I wanted room in the pockets.

Rated4out of5byAmberNfromGreat for backpacking!I have gone backpacking for the last several years. Usually I am on the JMT or PCT so the trails are pretty clear and I am not going through brush so my little yoga pants have always been just fine (I'm not one to spend money on new items unless I HAVE to).
After a short overnight in the Los Padres Wilderness, and going through brush, losing the trail and walking through water here and there, I decided it was time to break down and get some hiking pants.
These were awesome! I opted for the convertible pants in case I wanted to unzip the pant part and go for the shorts when I got too hot but these were so light and breathable that I never had to unzip at all! I wore them on a 33-mile, Ojai to Fillmore trip this past April. It was HOT (high 80s/very low 90s)! The trail wasn't clearly cut in some areas so, again, we were walking through brush. I was so relieved that I had these pants when I found two ticks stuck to the material of the pant legs (their legs were stuck in the actual fibers) and again when I got home and came to the realization that I had no cuts on my legs from branches! The pants dried quickly after they were wet from creek crossings and did not show sweat (well, none that I noticed anyway).
There was room in the waist and belt loops if needed. I am 5'7" and loved the length...covered the tops of my boots but didn't hit the ground.
The only negative is that I have bigger legs and the pants were a little snug where the zipper is that separates the pant leg from the short. It wasn't really a problem when I was hiking but when I was squatting or climbing, I could feel the restrictions against my thighs in that area. All you would have to do is one little squat in the fitting room at REI to see if this will be a problem for you :) I think for my next pair, I will just opt for a pair of pants that I can roll up instead of worrying about the zipper option to convert them into shorts. But, as I said earlier, I won't be spending money until I have to so these pants are working just perfectly for the time being!
