To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This fit my curvy, athletic frame very well. I'm a size 8 and took a size 10 (5'7", 140). However, the material felt pretty warm on a summer day and has a crunchy plastic texture that made noise whenever I moved. Guess that's what you get in exchange for water resistance.
As others stated, I had to go one size up to get the same fit I usually get with Columbia pants. Also as others stated, the fabric is VERY LOUD. I have had many other pairs of technical/quick dry pants and capris, and none of them were this loud and stiff. I chose to return them because I didn't want to annoy myself walking around, so I don't know if they would change after washing.
They looked good, though, and the pockets were decent.
I've worn a size 4 in Columbia for years. However, this year, I ordered a batch of new pants, capris and shorts and NONE of them fit. According to their size chart, I should be a size 4. My old size 4s still fit. I just don't know. Even though they were too tight in the waist, these pants still managed to gape at the waist in the back. I really want to like them, but I just can't. However, if they fit your body-type, these are well-made, good quality capris. Good luck!
