Rated 5 out of 5 by Boar Omni-shield material works
This is the first pair of trousers I have that's designed specifically for outdoors, so what I found might not be anything special for this type of clothing. Yet I was still impressed with how well the Omni-Shield material worked.
The material is flexible, so it is easy to walk in it. It is indeed water repellent to some degree, but not waterproof. In light rain the droplets tend to bounce off.
I hiked for a couple of hours in dense fog and tall wet grass in these trousers. The bottom part got soaked and muddy, but not excessively. Since I was also wearing long underwear for warmth, my legs didn't actually get wet or cold.
As the weather got sunny, the material dried very quickly, and most of the dirt just fell off naturally. I observed this several times, and it was quite impressive to me. The dirt would have stayed attached to other types type of materials (like denim).
I only had the trousers for about 2-3 weeks, so I cannot tell how long they will last, or how long the material keeps its dirt and water repellent property. I did make heavy use of them during this time though (1-week camping trip), and I was very happy with their performance.
The original fit was not 100% comfortable, but it got adjusted by itself after wearing it for 2-3 days.

This was my first set of "quick dry" pants and I am sold! After wading through streams they were completely dry within 20 minutes!

Rated 1 out of 5 by rwf66 FIX THE SNAP
I love the pants but HATE the snap. This is the second pair I've owned with a dis-functional snap. It pops open way too often. Actually, once is too often. But the snap mechanism is so fragile that it makes the pants useless.
I figured my first pair with a malfunctioning snap was a fluke. Not so. This is a problem with the whole line.
Columbia, please fix this.
