Columbia Silver Ridge Cargo Pants for Men
Great light hiking pants
Pants work great as a summer or fall-weather hiking pant. They are very thin and work well when you don't want to wear shorts or you just need a little bit more covering.
I bought them to keep ticks and grass off my legs during summer hikes. Fit well and get the job done.
I have not tried them out in wet weather to see how they perform. They won't give you much warmth on cold days.

The Perfect Pant
I get more comments on the look and style. However, it is the first pair of pants that I grab for casual wear. They are the best... and last forever... can't wear them out!!!

Cool pants for working around the property in the summer, I also like the passport pocket useful when travelling.

I wanted to like these pants more than "just ok"
I bought these to travel light on my trip to Europe this summer and was hoping to cover both sight-seeing in town and day hiking in the mountains. For hiking they were good. They are well made and fit well. But - the pockets are shallow and tight so I wouldn't say they are really a cargo pant. The net is that you can do better for hiking. For sightseeing they just didn't achieve my goal of looking a little dressier than a hiking pant. Also - I wanted black to hide dirt and work better with multiple shirts but they are not offered in that color. Why is this basic color not offered? I didn't want green so got the darkest color available which is Tusk. It was ok relative to dirt but I discovered one glaring issue - when you wash your hands and there is even a drop of a splash - it leaves a large visible dark spot for a few minutes while you try and get it to dry. This was an embarrassing thing given that sink level for me is just about the level of the zipper. Net - the pants are ok but have a lot of drawbacks. I would not buy them again.
