Great pant for golf
I have recently begun wearing the Silver Ridge II Convertible pants when playing golf, and discovered they keep me comfortably warm in the early morning cold. As the day progresses and warms up it becomes very convenient to remove the legs and enjoy the comfort of shorts. The only regret is the inseam in the crotch is a bit too short (40 x 30") for comfort requiring me to wear the shorts lower than I am accustomed to.

I live in South Florida and these pants are my absolute favorites. They're lightweight and super-comfortable. When you get caught in a downpour, they dry in ten minutes. Also, when it gets real hot, you zip off the lower leg, and your off. If the temperature drops, you zip them right back on, and away you go again. I would highly recommend these pants, for warm to moderate climate areas.

Taken to a Greater Length
These pants were previously offered in S,M,L,XL sizes with the elastic waist band sections if you are between sizes and also provides a little "give" for those of us who need it!. Now it appears you have to order size specific which is fine except I found that I had to exchange them for a 2" longer inseam then my regular length for jeans and slacks. The XL length was just fine.

The belt seems a little scrawny and I prefer a parachute clasp to the hook clasp, but fit and comfort were otherwise great. These are great for the hot humid climate here in south Florida and when travelling to central america.

Columbia Silver Ridge Pants Review
Overall, they fit good, look great and functional. I use it for hiking and plain everyday use. Pluses and Minuses listed below: #Pluses -Lightweight - I can wear these in spring/summer for everyday use and hiking. -Pockets: The left side pocket has a zipper with tassel. Stowing secure items here is nice. The tassel is good if i'm wearing gloves, so that I can easily grab the tassel for zip/unzip. Right side pocket is velcro and good for items that require easy/quick access. -Not Baggy fitting: These pants look good if you don't like the baggy/oversized look on the thighs. These pants look good evey for casual/everyday use. -Dual use: These pants unzip to form shorts or regular pants. Great for hiking and summer use! (Good value for money :-) ) #Minuses -A bit thin: It does get cold wearing these in fall/winter. Not a big deal. I just put on an under thremo layer and problem solved!
