A bit baggier than expected.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The material and color (black clay) are awesome. Stretchy and soft, however these seem to ride a bit high on my waist. And the cuffs are baggier than I expected. With the athletic fit I assumed these would fit like the Spotter pants, still sexy looking but a tad baggy. I would compare these to the Outdoor Research Voodoo pants. Those are pretty slim in the cuff, if that's your preference check them out.

My 'go-to' pants!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

These have pretty much replaced my Ramparts and even older Candidate pants from Arc'Teryx. These are a great material; they are softer, smoother, and stretchier than the Ramparts and shed water better. They pack down small and don't hold a wrinkle.

I don't know how so many reviewers are saying these shrink; they're a nylon/poly blend of fabric. I've washed and dried mine dozens of times over the past 6 months and they stay the same size & length. Having said that, they are like nearly all of the Arc'Teryx hiking/climbing pants, which is to say that they seem to run about 1/2 to 3/4" short in length. This is great to keep them out of the way for outdoor pursuits, but they do tend to look a bit 'high-water' for urban adventures. For the sleek look and comfort, though, I don't mind terribly, but if they were available in a 33" length I'd choose those.

These are also an 'athletic fit', meaning they're pretty slim. I have an 'endurance' build and these don't leave me a lot of room. They're not tight, but if I were to miss a couple weeks of training they could get that way. Definitely not made for guys who spend their gym hours at the squat rack.

Only other place I'd look for improvement is to have cargo pockets on both thighs, and maybe add a zipper or 'credential flap' to the rear pockets, and a hidden zip to one of the hand pockets to keep gear secure.

If these came in olive or coyote/crocodile I'd buy them again without hesitation.

shrinking issues

I should have bought this one size bigger in the waist so that it would shrink perfectly in the wash. Unfortunately, I bought it in my regular go-to size and had to return it after it shrank one full size during the first wash.

Everything else was awesome.

Since when did nylon shrink? Did it melt in the dryer?

I wonder if "Anonymous" may have purchased a different model with a cotton blend fabric. I have washed and dried my Rampart and Perimeter pants dozens of times and they do not shrink.

Great, comfortable, but shrunk

I bought Perimeter pants for travel in Europe. Nice fit, nice feel, dry quickly. But after washing and drying, they were signficantly shorter. Wouldn't be a problem except they apparently aren't made in 34" length. Why not??

Do Not Buy

I've had two pairs of these pants and both times the stitching came out after one or two uses at the rear part of the gusseted crotch. And this after only casual use. Do not buy!

I have multiple seasons on a pair Perimeter Pants and the Perimeter Shorts and haven't had any issues. If the product has legitimately failed Arc'teryx will warranty it. Seam failure is commonly caused from an improper fit. I'd recommend double checking your size.

Get the Rampart instead

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Yes, the material is neat and, yes, they are light and stretchy, but it's been a bit too many and too long of companies having 15 versions of any given garment. Case in point - these pants. Why not just put zippers on the Rampart pant cargo pockets, insert a stretchy panel in the right spot and call it done (basically - make a slightly modified version of the older Palisade pants)? Instead, Arc'teryx makes another version of pants, with a different pocket pattern (which is almost useless), different cut and different "purpose." Get the Rampart (or maybe, Palisade) or just keep your current hiking/backpacking pants and save some money.

Different strokes for different folks. The Rampart and Perimeter Pants are made from different materials and have different fits. The Rampart features a Relaxed fit and is constructed from TerraTex (94% Nylon, 6% Spandex) while the Perimeter features an Athletic fit and is constructed from Cresta (89% Nylon, 11% Spandex). The Rampart is slightly more durable and has a looser fit. The Perimeter has more stretch, a softer hand and a trimmer fit.

Responded on

I have both the rampart and the perimeters - I like the perimeters better. They have a more athletic fit and I like the material better. I also like the pocket placement better as I feel like a dork wearing pants w/ cargo pockets.

Good pants, great fit, but they shrink

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I like these pants. They fit me well and seemed sized about right, but they shrunk quite a bit in the wash, at least 1" in length. Dryer was on low temp, and I've never had shrinkage with Prana, Columbia, Patagonia, or North Face pants, so I was unpleasantly surprised to suddenly have high water pants, when these are the most expensive hiking pants I've purchased. Luckily, they have a generous bottom seam, so I could have them let back out to the original length. They're a little snugger in the waist/hips area now, but they have a great stretchiness so they remain comfortable, and I still like wearing them. Mine seem pretty durable out of the dryer, but I've not tested them much yet.

the best

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Hands down the most comfortable pants i have ever worn. very pricy, but very worth it. Nice little mountain biking pedal slip tore up my shin through the pants. pants did not suffer any damage at all. (not sure how that is possible). Almost perfect fit. They run a little bit short in the legs. i typically wear a 30/30 - inseam just slightly too short - i bought 2 pairs, one 30 one 32 inseam - 30s about an inch short, 32s an inch long. easy fix with a little hem work. highest recommendation.

Nice pants, Snagged easily

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Wore these first time for a short fall hike, snagged on some brambles. Pants have a little pulled thread. Not a big deal, still wearable, but hardly a rugged adventure. I expected better. They did shed light rain well and are comfortable.
