        Comments about Columbia Sportswear Aruba IV Convertible Pants 30in. - Men's:

        I returned these pants because they had no fly and an uncomfortable looking mesh brief liner. Picture boxer style bathing trunks with zip-on legs. This is a special-use item, perhaps perfect for some, but not for the general use that I had planned for them.

          Whether the bugs are biting in the morning or afternoon, you are protected by the long pants and quickly become shorts for the water.

            • Swimming

            Comments about Columbia Sportswear Aruba IV Convertible Pants 30in. - Men's:

            These are very nice paddling pants; my son and I tested them for a week in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. They're durable, lightweight, quick dry and have a nice fit. I also like the elastic waist and drawstring; no need to use a belt. However, I am not a fan of the mesh liner; I wouldn't spend all day paddling without my performance boxer-briefs on, and the liner made things a little crowded. With the liner, they are basically swim pants with removable legs. If you were on vacation at the beach and wanted to hit the town in long pants after a dip, these would be perfect. However, I plan on removing the mesh before my next trip where I am primarily on the water, and not in it.

              Simply good, useful product at a great price. Used the pants when hiking and rafting. The pockets are well-placed and secure. Recommend it above more expensive brands.

              Sadly, my pants got left behind by accident when repacking in Denali National Park. Hope someone gets good use from them.

                Well-made, but the absence of a zipper fly is a serious design flaw.

                  • Q:

                    I have some Aruba III pants I ordered from you about a year ago. They are so good I want to order more. I notice the name is now changed to Aruba IV instead of the III. Is there any difference?
                    Thanks

                      Cargo Pockets were updated from Straight to angle flaps. Just cleaner and less baggy fit overall on the new style.
