The Columbia Silver Ridge Convertible pants are another classic and a good value. We like the pockets and general design and they get rave reviews on Amazon. These pants have a gusseted crotch and knee design for more mobility, but a timmer fit and lack of stretch fabric make them seem trimmer and snugger than we would like for full freedom of movement — at least if you have muscular thighs. Compared to the Kuhl Renegades they lack ankle/calf zips so you’ll need to take your shoes off to remove the lower leg and convert the pants to shorts. Columbia uses OmniShade technology to protect against UPF rays, and uses OmniWick technology to help move moisture away from your body as you hike in the heat. Again, this is a fairly good price for a pair of durable convertible pants that are readily available in a large number of sizes.

AVAILABLE SIZES: 30 – 42 waist; 28 – 36 inseam
