I love these pants! They are so comfortable I want to wear them all the time, not just for hiking. But they are great for hiking, too, giving where they need to due to the stretchy material, with no extraneous material to get in the way. And they look great, too, so I can wear them day-to-day. These are my favorite pants.

Best Hiking Pants in The World
I love these pants! I have them in every color i could find. I wear them all the time not just hiking. They feel great very light but yet keep me warm. If there were more colors i would buy them. Right now all I can find are green, gray and black.

Lightweight pant that provides versatility and comfort. Do stretch out with wear. I am 5'6 and they are not too short or long. Work nicely with flip flops or hiking boots. The green is quite dark but different enough from black or gray.

Great Lightweight Pant
These pants are very lightweight and durable. I think they fit a teeny bit small, but they stretch, so it doesn't really matter. I guess I just prefer my pants to fit a bit looser, especially since I want to be able to wear a layer underneath for colder climates. They are wonderful in hot and humid environments, such as on a safari in Africa or hikng in Costa Rica. The cinch cord at the bottom is rather annoying, but great for dusty or sandy places.

Many positives outweigh the one negative
These Columbia Just Right pants are very comfortable and good looking; the fabric is a nice light weight stretch. Unlike many pants with a drawstring waist, these do not have so much excess material that it bunches unflatteringly when cinched. The waist is higher than many current styles of this type, sitting about 1 inch below my navel. I am 5'6", 135 lb, and the size 10 is a good roomy fit. However, as is often the case, they are too long. I will have to shorten them, which means I'll have to dismantle the elastic cinch cords at the leg hems. But this feature is quite poorly designed anyhow. If you tighten the cord at the ankles there is no mechanism for securing the long loop of elastic cord pulled out of the hem--it just sticks out behind, waiting to catch on something or trip you up. Just tucking it inside the leg doesn't work well unless you make the opening tight enough to hold it there. I still like them, am keeping them, and recommend them.
