Columbia has great clothing products
July 29, 2017
I bought these and a pair of shorts....love both. They are true to size (a rarity...I'm tiny and seems most companies like to make larger sizes with smaller numbers...makes things annoying for someone who truly is a size 2). These pants and the shorts are a durable quick drying material and are comfy to wear. They do not give like stretchy material but are still great for an active person. Make sure you follow the sizing guide when you order. I went to Columbia's website to make sure I had the size correct.
Review for fit
February 6, 2016
This review is purely for fit, I haven't worn them hiking yet. I am 5'8" 150 lbs and I normally wear a size 6 pant. I read the reviews and ordered the 8L. They fit perfectly. An extra layer fits underneath the pants and the length comes just above the floor.
Great for Hiking
December 27, 2015
The Cascades Explorer Pant is durable, comfortable and looks good. They're thin, but they handled sticking to ice (and falling on it a couple of times) no problem. I used these as an outer layer on a hiking trip and the pockets were very helpful. They're deep enough to fit my Nexus 5x and the cargo pockets came in handy a few times. I'll be definitely using these more often!
Great buy, versatile, fit well.
December 13, 2015
I love these trousers for camping. Lightweight, wash well, dry very quickly. They are a thin fabric, but that's why they are so lightweight. In cold weather, I've added another layer underneath (leggings or long underwear), and they're great. The fabric cuts the wind, but not hot in warm fall weather. I haven't worn them in summer heat yet. Only complaint is the self-belt that runs through the waistband can get a bit twisted, but so far not an issue to twist it back around. I've worn them about fifty times, but they still look new after repeated washings.
Fits perfect!!!
September 17, 2015

good for long hikes and backpacking
March 17, 2017
they fit as expected, i'm 5' 8.5" tall and ordered the long option which worked out with hiking boots. i've done a few 6+ hr hikes and they were easy to move in, dried super fast and stayed cleaner than other materials. they did start to fray after the first hike (it was 7hrs and a lot of climbing). it's not that noticeable. went backpacking for 10 days and only brought 2 pairs of pants, these stayed clean and were easy to wash and dried super fast
As described.
July 18, 2016
These fit as expected. They don't have much of a shape/curve to them if you have hips, however there is a belt included for cinching up the waist to keep them from sliding down. I would say the length is similar to jeans length in average cuts. The fabric is lightweight and dries quickly, but is not see through (I ordered the black). These are built for function rather than fashion, but they worked well for that purpose. I have also used them layered over leggings for warmth and had no problem with fit. Additionally, I have worn and washed them at least a half a dozen times now, and the color and construction has held up. I have also not had any issue with the plastic belt buckle as some customers other have mentioned.
Tight waist, go full size up
January 7, 2016
Bought the 12 large (Long). I am usually a 12 in pants, but due to reviews stating tight knees and my height of 5'10", I figured the long size would give more room (Generally tall/long are a bit bigger all over in my experience). Waist fit right at natural naval snugger than I would like while pant legs were quite large. I'd call the bottoms appeared to flaredye the longness bunching a bit at bottom, swooshing like track pants when I walk due to hitting each other. Ordered the 14 regular length to compare sizes, this pair fit well and I will keep.

July 24, 2015
I have had several pairs of Columbia pants before and order the size I normally wear (size 8). These arrived today and I have to return them because they are very tight in the thighs.
Correction: Small = short
July 23, 2015
Correction is needed in the description on Amazon! Small is actually short, which is what I hoped so I'm pleased. By the way, I'm 5'3 and the short is perfect length for me.

So if the product size has #/small, know that small is actually short. Happy shopping!

Very comfortable to wear but not durable
April 30, 2017
It's very comfortable for traveling pants. Thin material is good for warmer days. The belt came with it looks cheap. I pulled it off and wore without if fine. The only problem for me is the fabric quality itself. I bought it in Nov. 2016. After couple trips, it's now showing lint balls around the inseam joint area. That is a really a shame because I liked it so much.
Material Is Incredible, But Fit Isn't Great
April 27, 2017
I recently purchased these to wear on a weekend getaway where I would be doing a lot of hiking. I wanted Columbia as their products always seem to have decent quality and this was one of the cheapest pairs. I went with a size 12, I wear 11/12 in jeans and medium 8/10 in pajama and exercise pants. The size is a little small, but still wearable, but definitely go with the larger size if trying to decide between two. The fit isn't very good though. I read several reviews about these being high waisted which was my primary reason for maybe going with something else, but I decided to try it anyway. They are VERY high waisted. There's pretty much two options with this: pull it up to where it fits rear/crotch and have it sitting above your belly button or put it comfortably around your middle and have the crotch hanging very low and letting your thighs rub together. I'm definitely not a fan of either. The back pockets do have velcro which is nice, but they are very small so good luck fitting anything in it.

The good things about these pants: the material is awesome! It was stretchy and I had no issues with bending around the knees. It is very cool and I imagine it will do great in the heat. My weekend was spent in the pouring rain though. I didn't have high hopes as the material seemed so thin, but it was incredible. It rained the whole weekend, some serious downpours (it was my first weekend off in about 9 months so I was not spending it inside) and the rain did not come through my pants. While my shirt was soaked all the way through, my legs were still dry. I will definitely be looking into this material for all future outdoor pants. I also like the belt and the front and side pockets were nice and roomy.
Casual, quick-dry
December 25, 2015
These pants fit a little tightly on me, though certainly still wearable, and I probably was just too optimistic in choosing size. They don't seem to have any "give," so I'd be inclined to err on the side of big rather than small. They seem to hold some wrinkles, but maybe that's part of the charm, at least when traveling casual :)

Pros -- the material is thin and seems likely to dry quickly when traveling to a humid area, and the pants seem to be built well. I like the fit and adjustability of the belt, especially with the slim buckle.

Cons -- the material is thin enough to not be suitable for cooler weather, a bit rougher/noisier than I had expected, and not as comfortable as I'd hoped. The color is okay-ish, though kind of a sickly-pale green.
No give or stretch for hiking or climbing
September 2, 2015
These pants were fine but I have a short torso so they seemed to go above my belly button. They fit relatively well but did not have any stretch or give so I decided that would not be good hiking pants for me.

June 14, 2015
These pants were nearly perfect, but had one fatal flaw--the knee area is too narrow. Standing/walking is okay, but sitting is a bit uncomfortable. I'm not overweight (5'7" and 120 lbs), so this really surprised me. Other than that, I LOVE the material (very lightweight, great for summer) and pockets (side, cargo and rear). I'm going to have to return these, and hope Columbia will someday make this pant with slightly wider legs.

Run WAY small.
August 30, 2017
Columbia sizing is an exercise in frustration. VERY disappointed. I wear a size 10/12 in most every brand and usually in Columbia but these in a 12 were so snug on my bum you could see my flesh dimpling! Terrible LOL. Returned. I recommend if you order to order one size up. I am not bothering because I'm just annoyed with the entire thing, but I do sincerely believe the next size up may have fit better.
Buyer Beware!
April 19, 2017
Buyer Beware! This "Tactel Nylon" does not wear like Nylon. I am very disappointed in this fabric! I wore this pair of pants 2 times and the area between the legs began to wear and pill (like polyester might). I have other/similar Columbia "Nylon" pants that I have worn more than 100 times and they have not pilled or worn like this fabric. "Tactel Nylon" feels like a very misleading term. It does not equal the quality of previous Columbia NYLON fabric!
These pants do not fit!
September 13, 2016
These pants do not fit! I read many of the reviews that recommended ordering up a size but I ordered my regular size 12 anyway and they were absolutely huge. Especially in the thighs and rear. I returned them and the return went very quickly and smoothly. I ordered a size 10 and although they were smaller they still were too large in the thighs and rear but fit my waist. I washed them thinking they might shrink because I had no time to return them and took them to Peru with me thinking they would be good for visiting Machu Picchu. I could not wear them they fit so poorly. I kept checking to make sure they weren't men's pants because they absolutely don't fit my female body. The seams puckered badly from washing and they wrinkle easily. I wish I had just returned them before washing them because now I'm stuck with pants I cannot wear in public. Very disappointed.
more comfortable belt. Also
January 22, 2016
The first pair I ordered was a bit baggy so I tried again with one size down, but that was too tight. The pants have a built in belt that when cinched closed has the buckle part up above the top of the pant where it would dig into my stomach if I sat down. The belt is not removable, so it can not be replaced with a softer, more comfortable belt. Also, fresh out of the box, the pants were full of static and would just cling to my legs. I don't know if that would go away after washing since I returned the item.
I really wanted to like these pants
January 19, 2016
I really wanted to like these pants. Normally I'm a size two, but when that arrived I couldn't get them over my thighs. I tired the four and those made it over the thighs but there was no way I was getting them closed. Now I've just gotten the six and got them on and buttoned but they were way to thought around the waist! Theses pants have absolutely no give, I expect that from a weather proof pant. But this is like wearing computer paper. I'll be returning the size six but this time I'm not ordering an eight.

November 21, 2016
These pants were so thin they were see through! I get wet alot on the job and that would not be good! Returned immediately.

September 27, 2016
The sizing is very far off on these pants. They were extremely tight, even after I ordered a size larger than I normally wear. Also, the fabric is ridiculously thin. They show every panty line and every flaw you may have. I'm not sure why Columbia misses the mark so poorly on women's clothing.
Disappointed
May 30, 2016
Pants are a very small size 8, and have already started showing signs of wear and pilling in the inner thighs after only 3-4 wears. I am usually a size 6 and their size 8 is tight on my hips. I am very disappointed and will not be buying other Columbia pants.
material too flimsy
January 14, 2016
Material too thin. Not comfortable at all. Fit as expected though a bit short. Returned them.
Short is actually not short.
July 28, 2015
Alright, I thought these pants would be great because they are so cheap. They fit truly to the size, no stretching at all. I ordered short and I got what seemed like a long. Not sure how the other ladies got it to work but I'm 5'4 and when I put these pants on They covered my feet as well. There's nothing to roll up or button too. They need to fix their sizing bc a short should not be a long. Unless these are made for tall giants. Which I am not. Loved the fabric though.
