Thank you for your feedback.
The pants look and feel good, fit well, and I like the zippered pocket at the right side leg, perfect for my cell phone.
He said they're great and very comfortable - they fit true to size.
They fit as expected but were missing 2 belt loops that are supposed to be over the rear pockets.

    These used to be my favorite pants in the world, but the manufacturing quality has substantially declined. My old Ultimate ROC's held up through anything, but my last 3 pairs suffered from the following problems:

    - The button snap wears out quickly and will not stay fastened. Very frustrating problem. I asked Columbia to send out new buttons and they refused.
    - The fabric quality has gone to junk, the crotch blew out in 2 of the last 3 pairs within 2 weeks. You better know how to sew if you buy these pants.
    - In high humidity environments, like SE Asia, the pants stretch out and become too long. as much as 3 inches longer than normal. A wash and dry and they are back to normal, but the problem repeats itself in any kind of hot environment with moisture.
    - Columbia warranty service is terrible, instead of just making it right, they want you send them in and cross your fingers that they will do the right thing. As a result, I just threw mine in the trash can.

    Sadly these pants are way too expensive to put up with such poor quality.

    *** Update 12/8/2015

    Gave in and bought another 3 pairs. The pants seem to have been updated, but not for the better. The 2 main problems remain. The crotch still blows out the snap wears out quickly. See included photos.

    I originally bought these pants for a mission trip to Honduras. We were going to be doing some hard labor building adobe brick houses. The zipper pocket came in extremely handy as I had to have my passport with me at all times. I slept in these pants too as they were so comfortable. When I got back to the states I found myself wearing them to work, to church, to games and everywhere else. They are the most versatile pair of pants I've ever owned. I hope they never do away with this line.

    These Ultimate ROC pants are much more casual than the original "classic" ROC pants. The originals could pass for Chinos with their slant pockets in the front, inner zipper pocket, inset rear pockets and low-key side patch pocket that did not draw attention.

    The Ultimates feature big stupid-looking patch pockets on the rear with contrast red stitching on the upper corners. The same red thread is used on the corner of the right side patch pocket. The Ultimate material is much lighter in weight/thickness than the original. The discreet inner zipper pocket which was great for cell phones now starts about 4" below the bottom of the left front pocket, so you have to reach halfway down your thigh to get to it.

    These are not at all suitable for the conditions I needed them for. I feel like I wasted my money. These are more like very light weight jeans as far as where I could wear them. Extremely casual. Too casual for any Casual Friday I know of.

    This line in the Amazon description "the ultimate roc pant has retained all of the classic style and function of the original version" is simply NOT TRUE.

    My husband works in Exploration, and I bought these pants for his trips. He said they're great and very comfortable - they fit true to size. He works in very harsh terrain, and they have held up.

    Also, they make his behind look great! :-)

    The fit is not as labeled. I have a pair of ROC pants that I got from Sports Authority & I compared it to the ones I ordered here. These are 2" longer in length. About 2" longer. In my photos, the light color is from Sports Authority 30"x30" and the dark one is purchased from here 30"x30".

    I ordered 5 pairs of these. The very first time I wore them the material where the pockets and belt loops started to rip. I have seen pants do this if they are too tight but I wear a 30" waist and I ordered 32" just to be sure that they would still fit well after washing and drying. Iv'e had to buy iron on patches and put them inside to keep the tears from getting larger. I will never buy columbia pants again.

    These are my new favorite pants. Very very comfortable, the fit does seems to be just slightly large. After washing there was no shrinkage noticed. They are slightly more casual than traditional Khaki pant, but I have been wearing them to the office with no complaints. Actually on the contrary, I have gotten 2 complements on how nice they look. The only complaint is the closure is a snap which even with a loose fit seems to not be very secure. I wear a belt so not really an issue for me. I like the "Hidden" Pockets, they give you a few more places for storage without the CARGO pant look. CARGO will not work for the office. The quality seems to be excellent, with double stitched seems. Highly recommended if your business casual policy is not too strict. Match there with an oxford or polo and you are ready for the office.

    I actually bought 4 more pairs in different colors, the color selection is pretty good.

    Bought two pairs (and a "non ultimate" version as well) for an upcoming trip. Fit nicely, though I think the rise could be a little shorter for my taste. They look good and have no-nonsense belt loops. I hate pants where the belt loops appear to be only good for show and have no real strength.

    Theyre lighter weight than I expected, but that is a good thing to me. Look good out of the dryer without an iron. The pockets are...curious. I hope I'll get used to them. The zip pocket on the right leg might be good for some cash or something? Anything of any size (pocket knife, wallet) bulges thru the fabric.

    The button is a little odd too. When I push it together, it seems like there are two clicks rather than one. After the first "click", the button can still easily come open. The second "click" seems to mean theyre fully secured.

    UPDATED 9/10/2013
    After two wearings (and two washings) the back pocket is tearing away from the pants themselves leaving an obvious hole. Nothing ultimate about these pants...order with extreme caution if you expect them to last more than a few weeks. Requesting a replacement pair to see if this is a fluke...the other pairs I've ordered have not had the same issue. Hopefully they were just a lemon.
