Didn't fit me right

Well put together! They just didn't fit me right. Too tight in the thighs. Otherwise, fit true to size

Difference in >$100 pants?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

At first I was skeptical given that Columbia makes similar lightweight hiking pants which are 60-70 dollars less but I decided all the rave reviews were worth giving these a shot...Here is what I found.

Many of the lightweight hiking pants I see have "liners" similar to swim trunks and these have none. There is just enough elastic in the actual pants to make the fit flawless. They stretch on me roughly 1/4 inch around the waist which will be nice especially when I lose weight on a long thruhiking venture. If they made a 33x30 I would have gone with that but most of the other inseams are 32". No issues with mobility or pull and they fit me well all around with enough room in the legs for thermals under if needed. Also considering I have a fairly large butt for a guy (175lb, 5 ft 9.5") they give me enough room without feeling like spandex pants.

The pockets are also unlike any I have seen. The "main" side pockets are not as deep as they could be but they are made-up for by leg pockets which have overlapping fabric to form the closure. Yet another way they cut weight. I like that there are no snaps or zippers or buttons because there is nothing to break when in the back country,

For light bushwacking these do work but I wouldn't recommend them. To give them a good beating I walked off trail through some thistles and wild rose bushes and the pants did not rip but you can certainly feel some of the thorns through them. Nothing came out of the pockets. To top it all off, on a 90+ degree day these pant's kept me pretty cool.

They are well worth the money in my opinion for anyone very active outdoors AND looking for very lightweight pants. As a bonus, these are one of the few brands which actually look nice enough to wear outside.

Do these run long? i don't like having a large break at the shoes (extra material gathering at the ankles) typically a 31"L would fit just right... If those existed. Would I want these in a 30"L or 32"L. I normally wear 33x30 (if it doesn't shrink) or 33x32. I am 5'11". Thanks!

Best Answer Responded on

Normally wear 33x30 and ordered 34x30. Length fits right to me - just like a picture above. But need a belt for the waist.

Responded on

Caleb, the Arc'teryx Rampart Pants will not shrink. I'd recommend a 33"x30". Enjoy!

Great Pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These breathe really well. I tested pouring water on my pants and within a couple minutes they were dry, it was pretty amazing. The fabric is very durable and the pockets are very handy. They are a bit noisy because of the fabric but it doesn't really bother me since i am not trying to be a ninja in them. The fit was spot on for me in the sense that they weren't snug but slightly bigger which i appreciated since i expected to wear a belt anyway.

Great Pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I have been wearing this pants for a few weeks now. both in the city and out in the field. really comfortable and useful and also good looking. while they are not water proof they tend to ward off light drizzle, the kind that is very common in Seattle for quite a long time.
I agree they they tend to run a little large. I'm usually a size 34, and with this ones I need a belt to keep them on, It's probably advisable to order one size down.

Great the second time around.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had 2 pair of the older Ramparts in 36/32. I burned a hole in one :( when an ember from our campfire landed on me. Needless to say I order 2 more of this newer version in the same size. I was hesitant when I read a few reviews. But don't worry they are inaccurate. My new 36/32's are identical in everyway. I laid them out next to the old ones and the waist, inseam and length are spot on. I wear a 36 in everyday jeans as well and I would have to say these run true to size. Great product.

Responded on

Even Arcteryx admits they changed the waist size.

Responded on

Yeah the manufacturer can add 1/16 of an inch of material but that doesn't mean the consumer will notice. They have to specify, its required by law. For the general public there is no difference and you and I will never notice.

Still the best pants on the market

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

the price is steep. but these pants are so bomber. Bug proof, breatable, stretchy and durable. I would fill my closet with these if my wallet were thick enough.

There's no excess material to manage. The material is strechy so the pants move with you, allowing for a streamlined, athletic cut. That makes these pants passable in many locations from the crag to the (Casual) dining atmosphere (my wife is not sold on this...yet).

The cut is also FINALLY long enough. with a 35" inseem, these work perfectly for taller customers. I am sure that Prana and Mountain Hardwear make great pants. I've heard they do. But they don't sell pants with inseems greater than 32, so I am out of luck.
I had hesitations about getting the 13/14 model Rampart. I loved the past design and hear the changes weren't so desirable. Wearing them now, and I am pretty happy with the cut and the pocket orientation. I will add that i did opt for the smaller waste size and can vouch for a bit of generosity there. I'd argue it's less than 2 inches, but sizing down is recommended.

Love these pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Got these pants for Christmas and absolutely love the sizing and overall fit of these pants. there are no zipper pockets on these pants but the pockets are deep and reliable for most items. I plan to use these pants while winter snow shoeing and fall/spring climbing. So far they are everything I have wanted.

Is the "nighthawk" color anything close...

Is the "nighthawk" color anything close to a "navy blue"? Thanks for any input...(I'm trying to find a 'waterproof' pants to wear around the swimming pool as part of an uniform)

Solid pant!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I haven't done much in these but I think I can report back with some initial impressions.

First and foremost the quality of construction is, as to be expected on par with what you'd expect from Arc'teryx. The fit is probably a bit on the large side, but on part with my other Arc'teryx and other branded outdoor pants I own in 36" sizes. So if you're rocking pants of a given size, I doubt you'd notice much difference in the fit. Thankfully these are offered in various inseams, as I'm a short stocky guy and it's hard to find a quality pant in short (30") inseam. The Rampart is a more relaxed fit pant which shows some bulk around the ankle. I've got rather large quads and the loose fit on these is nice when moving about allowing me full range of motion without restriction. I think for a lot of you skinnier folk these might be a little on the loose side for technical use but for a short stocky guy they're good to go when you don't want to be restricted. Nice and stretchy.

I haven't had these wet, so I can only speculate, but based on the feel and thickness of the material I suspect these would dry in a heart beat if you found yourself caught out in a downpour.

I like the pocket layout with a quick access pocket on the right side cargo. Probably one of my fav. features!

Beyond that I think if you decide to give these a go, you'll have a pant that will transition well from office space to trail time and leave little on the table doing so.

Super comfy outdoor pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Just picked up a pair as I wanted dedicated pants versus zipoffs. They are very lightweight and supercomfortable especially when scrambling. The only thing I wish was a little more comfortable waistband, possibly with some elastic versus using a belt.

Moroccan Approved

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Spent 2 weeks all over Morocco in them. Got soaked in the rain - dried quickly while wearing them. Walked around in 35C temps - comfortable. Hiked for a couple days up Mt. Toubcal with snow and hail - performed great (I did end up putting on rain pants for more thermal protection). I also really liked the tapered ankle, it prevented the bottoms from getting drug around while walking.

The downside: front pockets are for your hands only.. They are very shallow, I didn't trust keeping anything in them. The cargo pockets do not have any zippers, however they are deep and more secure. Which is nice, but as a travel pant, I'd appreciate at least one secure pocket.
Overall, I'd buy it again.

awesome lightweight pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Not showing any wear so far as my main pair of travel pants. I use em climbing, on planes, buses, and trekking when not wearing shorts or softshells. Easy to hand wash, and so far pretty durable, though I've only worn them about 40 or 50 days total. Both snaps need to be done to avoid having one pop off, but the sizing is pretty on. Put on a leather belt and you can pull of a nice dinner too.

My husband loves these pants!

Gave these pants to my husband for his birthday a few weeks ago and he loves them. He is 5'11, 175 pounds, slim, and normally wears a 36 waist, although that's a tad large for him. The 34s fit perfectly. He has looked a long time to find pants with these features that not also convertible in style. He hasn't had them long enough to know how well they will hold up.

GREAT PANTS ALL AROUND!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

these pants i wore everyday for 1200 miles on the PCT. The fabric and fit is comfortable, and the fabric itself is really strong (only have one tear from a cow gate, stupid barbed wire) HOWEVER the stitching is vulnerable to wear after 3-4 months of everyday use. they are so expensive, that i took them to the cleaners to get restiched in certain areas (groin, back part where it rubs up against pack, and bottom cuff) rather than shell out a bill for new ones. overall great pants, great fit with length and width available. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

i wear a 30x30 pant size all the time, im...

i wear a 30x30 pant size all the time, im barely 5'7" (not that big/tall) should i go with the 28x30 on these pants or the 30x30?

Responded on

Hey Chris,

Reading the reviews that have been added I can see where you might get a little confused. Some people are saying that these are looser this year and some people are saying that are tighter, Honestly, If you wear 30x30 for every pair of pants you own you should be fine staying with the same here. Now if you always have to wear a belt to keep your pants up then maybe give the 28's a try. In college I would have killed to have a pair of 28's, lucky for me I don't have that problem any more.

New version sizing off.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

They've added way too much to the waist size. Ruined a perfect pant. 32W is more like 34.

Responded on

I disagree. Sizing is dead on. I wear size 32W...and these fit perfectly. I think you may in fact be a size 30W.

Responded on

Disagree also. Wear 33W and ordered 34W. little roomy but fits fine w/ a belt.

Arc'teryx Elephant Pant

I wear these pants all the time, for hiking in winter and summer, and around town. Light, fast-drying, and surprisingly sturdy. Haven't managed to damage these pants, even when hiking off-trail. The only weak spot is the crotch seam, if the pants are worn too low.

Unfortunately, Arc'teryx appears to have added a full 2" to the waist in this year's batch. This is a problem if you have a slim build and long legs, because the smallest waist size for the 35" inseam is 32" (which now measures more like 35")!
