Columbia Silver Ridge Pull-On Pant

Bargain pick

Brand: Columbia Sportswear

Model: Silver Ridge Pull-On Pant

Just what you need from Columbia and no more: a drawcord, two side pockets, and one medium-sized thigh pocket. Ripstop nylon protected us from trailside brush through a hard season of backpacking and emerged unscathed. They dry fast, so we had no qualms about washing them in a campside creek after a day of hiking, knowing they’d be ready by morning, despite lows in the 40s. Stretchy ankle cuffs seal out debris. Ding: The waist sagged when we loaded the thigh pocket with snacks or a smartphone.
