These pants Silver Ridge IV are the same fabric and quality as the Silver Ridge III. I like the new colors as well. The length is perfect for my 11 years old tall daughter but the waist of the pant is too large. This wasn't a problem at all with the old version since it had the adjustable elastic waistband but why on earth Columbia would removed it for these new version??? There is no way you can tighten up the pant. It's just a "partial elastic at waist". You could probably use a belt but the adjustable elastic waistband was much more convenient.
I am a petite adult (5’2) and I bought this in size large ( the medium was too tight ), I normally wear and XS or 25 in women’s pants. I found the waist too large and so I need to wear this with a belt ( I have a 26 waist) , the hips fits fine (I’m 34). The length is a bit long on me and I shortened them and added elastic to turn them into joggers, which made them wayyyy better looking. I wore it out on a hot day and did not feel hot in them at all, so they really did keep me cool. here is not indication at the pant leg zippers ( as found in other convertible pants ) to tell you which leg is left/right so I used nail polishes and painted the zip tab as color code to help distinguish which leg goes where.
Huge! My daughter wears a 10-12 and so I ordered her a large. They fell to the floor. I guess i will try medium. Otherwise, the color is great, and they look like sturdy pants. I just wish they had a better size chart.
Was very disappointing to find Columbia drop the adjustable strap with the newer version of these pants. Otherwise, it is a great, quality pair of pants. Found the size to run slightly larger.
