The Columbia men's Aruba III amphibious pants feature zip-off legs, letting you convert them into shorts for quick-change versatility in or out of the water. The pants are made of lightweight textured nylon, which dries fast and features Columbia's highest level of Omni-Shade sun protection. The self-draining pockets and interior mesh brief, meanwhile, combine to keep you dry and comfortable. Other details include an elastic waist with an adjustable drawcord, front hook-and-loop closure pockets, and a back zippered security pocket. The pants are available in 30-, 32-, and 34-inch lengths.
About Omni-Shade Technology
Columbia's Omni-Shade clothing protects you from damaging UV radiation by blocking the majority of the sun's harmful rays, letting you stay out longer on sunny days. Unlike SPF (Sun Protection Factor)--which is a measure of sunburn reduction from sunblock and protects you from UVA rays--Columbia's Omni-Shade products are far more versatile, combining a tight-weave construction, UV reflectors, and UV absorbing technology. These features not only prevent sunburns and long-term skin damage, but they also protect the wearer from UVB rays in addition to UVA rays. UVB rays are much more harmful than UVA, and are present even on cloudy days.
The men's Aruba III pants include zip-off legs for hot days.
About Columbia Sportswear
Founded in 1938, Columbia Sportswear Company has grown from a small family-owned hat distributor to one of the world's largest outerwear brands and the leading seller of skiwear in the United States. Columbia's extensive product line includes a wide variety of outerwear, sportswear, rugged footwear and accessories. Columbia specializes in developing innovative products that are functional yet stylish and offer great value. Eighty-year-old matriarch Gert Boyle, Chairman of the Board, and her son, Tim Boyle, President and CEO, lead the company.
Columbia's history starts with Gert's parents, Paul and Marie Lamfrom, when they fled Germany in 1937. They bought a small hat distributorship in Portland, Oregon, and named it Columbia Hat Company, after the river bordering the city. Soon frustrated by poor deliveries from suppliers, the Lamfroms decided to start manufacturing products themselves. In 1948, Gert married college sweetheart Neal Boyle, who joined the family business and later took the helm of the growing company. When Neal suddenly died of a heart attack in 1970, Gert enlisted help from Tim, then a college senior. After that it wasn't long before business really started to take off. Columbia was one of the first companies to make jackets from waterproof/breathable fabric. They introduced the breakthrough technology called the Columbia Interchange System, in which a shell and liner combine for multiple wearing options. In the early 1980s, then 60 year-old Gert began her role as "Mother Boyle" in Columbia's successful and popular advertising campaign.
The company went public in 1998 and moved into a new era as a world leader in the active outdoor apparel industry. Today, Columbia Sportswear employs more than 1,800 people around the world and distributes and sells products in more than 50 countries and to more than 12,000 retailers internationally.
Other details include an elastic waist with adjustable drawcord, front hook and loop closure pockets, and a back zippered security pocket. Authentic fit.
We bought several pairs of these pants for both of us for a trip to Uganda. Turns out we could have travelled with just a carry-on bag each thanks to these. Read morePublished 3 days ago by E. Turner

My wife and kids call these my MC Hammer pants. They are terrible, almost like long pant swimming trunks. I wore back packing once and they never stayed up properly. Read morePublished 2 months ago by SoopGear
