Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Functional These pants are not really for hiking. I'd say buy them for a car camping trip with your boyfriend or wearing aound to look outdoorsy. But big NO on functionality for backpacking or hiking. The lack of pockets is a deal killer for true outdoor use. No place to stash phone or small essentials you may not want to fumble in a backpack pocket for. Front pockets not useful at all. Also a bit too thin and the waist strikes right at the same spot as my backpack belt. I was not convinced they'd be durable enough for several days in the back country. Too bad because there are so few convertable pants out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants for True Petite People It's always helpful when other folks provide their measurements when reviewing petite pants. I'm 107lbs, 5'0" with a 25" waist. Even with my muscular legs, particularly in the thigh area), these were excellent hiking pants. I use the ties at the bottom so the pants hug my ankles or boot. Without the pull ties, the pants might perhaps be 1-2 inches too long..depending on the height of your boot. The pants hang on hips...I could wear a belt, but wearing thermal underneath it works like a charm. I think the pants are actually good to wear for every day wear as well...that's how comfortable they are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for baby boomer These pants fit me so well! I'm a baby boomer and in pretty good shape, but so many pants have too short a waist to look good on me. These are perfect! I wore them all over Europe, and they are perfect for flying from our cold-weather home to a hot-weather place - just zip off the legs and you're ready for sun! They travel well, minimum wrinkling and so comfy. I just wish they had them in a different color, it would make my traveling wardrobe complete!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for fuller thighs I tried the regular Saturday Trail and the convertible version. I'm 5'0" and 125 lbs withi thicker thighs. The pants fit well standing up. However, when I sit down or extend my legs as if to squat or step, I feel the convertible zipper snug around my thigh. That's not okay, so I'm going back to the regular Saturday Trail pants which are relaxed enough to move freely but not baggy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy but... I bought these a little over a year ago specifically for kayaking. I wanted xipoffs and water repellant, which these are. I appreciate the higher waist these pants offer! It seems that all other products at REI are really low waisted (catering to younger, very in shape people?). They also have a long inseam which I need. They really fit well and are comfy. I'll try not to complain that I had to buy a size 10 even though I am normally a 6 or 8. So best to try these on. I have probably worn them about 10 times in the past year usually for kayaking. They have become very pilly on the upper thigh and rear. Also. One of the seams has let go in the back creating a 2 inch gap. I have washed them but always air dry. My last kaysk trip was an especially wet one and the water resistence mostly failed. This surprises me because Columbia is usually of high quality and for what I paid for them I thought they would last more than 10 uses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Great pair of pants but I wish they came in a smaller size! I'm 5'2" and normally wear a 0 but these don't even come close to fitting in the waist. I had to buy a belt to make them work. That said, they did a great job keeping me warm when needed, and cool when I got too hot. Wore in temp ranges of 40-75and they were great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fit I really liked the fit of the old REI convertible pants, but their newer stock doesn't fit right in the waist and butt. These fit so much better. These pants are very comfortable and light-weight. My only complaint, echoing a previous commenter, is that I have thick thighs and there is no give around the zipper area when sitting or crouching. I'm considering getting them altered in that area since they fit so perfectly everywhere else and when standing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE these pants! I wish I had purchased ten pairs of these pants. Finally, a pair of hiking pants that fit my body! There is just enough give and go in the fabric to allow for stretching over rocks and boulders, but not so much that you feel like you're swimming in extra fabric. The waist is perfectly proportioned to the upper leg area so there isn't any gapping in the wrong places.
