I was very happy with these. I always like columbia products and this was no exception. Comfortable for daily use and durable for hiking. I think you would be pleased to own these.

Great All around pantelones!
February 14, 2011

These are great durable thick pants! Yet they are so light and feel so thin! I am impressed. So far I have had them since fall, no holes! I have used them rock climbing, hiking, biking and for everday wear. My only complaint is no back left pocket, but that is just because I am a left side wallet wearer. I will be taking these on the appalachian trail next summer so will re-post then!

Great pants

These pants are exactly as described. Great Columbia gear. Mine ran a little small, but overall there were no issues with fit. Pants to move in, look sharp and easy care, quick dry.

My review for the Columbia Resistance Way II
October 30, 2011

First time buying any Columbia pants. These pants fit true to size although they might have shrunk just a wee bit after my first wash. Very good quality and are very comfortable. They are not baggy at all which I believe is a plus for someone who doesn't want the baggy look. I have not hiked or done anything extreme with them. I wear them for around the town strolls and traveling. I do not think they will wear as well as some other pants for hiking as the material is more soft and built for comfort. They are good for everyday use though. The only con is the white stitching on the legs. I would think a black or dark stitching with black pants would look better than black with white stitching. Still a recommended buy however as they are very comfortable and still look pretty good.

Pros: Great design, Great value

Great pants
July 14, 2011

I was a little nervous when I ordered Columbia pants because they are usually longer inseam and crotch than normal. But this one fits perfectly. I may have to stock up with different colors.

Nice comfortable hiking pants
July 24, 2011

I was looking for a nice looking comfortable pair of hiking pants. Difficult task, many look baggy, with bulgy pockets. These Columbia pants do look a bit more dressy (but they're still obviously leisure pants). There is an integrated belt for waist adjustment and a convenient side pocket with a zip (ideal for these car keys, or even glasses because they will not be squashed in this pocket). The pants are also extra light weight, and clean up easily. I wish the legs would have been slimmer, that is all I can complain about

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Cons: legs are a bit large
