by fromDisappointing For pants designed for hiking, the cut is too snug. Too restrictive around the thighs and the rise is not high enough.

by fromToo tight in the crotch These pants are generally awesome with the exception on two things. First, the pants are way too tight in the crotch area, it is as if they chose one place to skimp on proportionally sizing the pair of pants and that was it. The second thing is that the threading around the crotch area is pretty poor, I have worn my pants twice and the seams are starting to come undone, this just seems like poor craftsmanship. I have a friend who has the same type of pants and the same thing is also happening with his pair. This just shows me that these products aren't really built to last and are overpriced for what you do get.

by fromI'll be returning it Nice looking pant, put runs small and needs more room in the seat area. Also, the survey request email was sent too early. My husband saw the email on Christmas morning, so he already knew what he was getting before he opened it. Keep trying.

by fromQuality has suffered. Purchased two pair Columbia convertible pants in 2009. Since then, I have searched high and low in various sporting goods and clothing stores to no avail for something that matched those excellent pants. I wore those convertibles 12 mos. per year (winter in AZ), almost every day. I took them on three trips to Australia and wore them exclusively. I still have one pair left, but wanted one or two more. Took a chance on-line and ordered one pair from Columbia. I will wear them around the house but they do not come close to matching the quality that Columbia used to sell. They are baggy, have a riveted front button which will not stand the test of time, and only one zippered cargo pocket. The "original" convertibles had two zippered rear pockets, and a zippered key pocket. Unlike the new pair, they fit comfortably, and were slimmer in the legs. My "originals" wore like iron. I'll have to see how long these last, but I know I won't wear them as often. Will have to search for other makes in the future. Columbia quality has suffered, probably due to increased costs to make them like they used to. For what they cost me, I am not satisfied.

by fromMens Silver Ridge Pants Ordered these pants in 5 colors. Each pair of pants were suppossed to be the same size. The length varied as much as two inches between the colors. Not happy that I had to take them to a tailor.

by fromGreat...if you want to look like you're wearing Peter Pan tights. The product construction and material is very good quality. But, the designer of these pants must be uber-skinny with pencil-thin legs. I'm an average sized guy, with what I would classify as an athletic build at 6'0' 185 lbs and the legs are way to small for me to comfortably squeeze into. I bought a 34" waist, which was actually slightly large for me, but the legs are still too small for me to squeeze into. My hips and thighs look like I am wearing spandex. Restricts movement a ton. I'm going to return them and try the Blood and Guts pants, as I have heard they run bigger in the leg area.

by fromA bit tight in the upper leg area Got a pair of these because REI wasn't carrying the North Face version. These were a bit tight in the upper leg and thigh, and I wound up taking them back. Probably fine for someone with smaller legs, but I personally like the fit of the North Face pants.
