Gear Review: Columbia PFG Armadale Ankle Pant

This spring, I’d been looking for a way to bring some spring color to my wardrobe and decided to order a pair of Columbia Sportswear PFG Armadale ankle pants. I had a sneaking suspicion that the pants would be more like capris on my long legs than ankle pants (and they are) but I really like them!

These pants are made of a great nylon blend that Columbia calls “Summiteer Lite.” They’re Omni-Shield (water and stain repellent) and Omni-Shade (UV protection). Most importantly, they’re incredibly comfortable and look awesomely stylish.

I wore these to school several times and got compliments from teachers and students alike. They’re probably a bit too casual for many work places but they really do seem to dress up well! In addition to looking great, they’re very functional. Yesterday, my mom and I went kayaking and I was really easily able to get in and out of the kayak, move around easily in the boat, and they dried super quickly once I got out of the kayak. (And in the places that didn’t get soaked you can see how the water beaded up in the photo below!)

I currently have these in harbor blue and realllllly think I need to order them in navy and foxglove because they’re super awesome.
