    Style and performance for all your projects.

    From an exposed rock route on the Tetons to the celebratory bar visit following the descent, count on the Outdoor Research Men's Voodoo Softshell Pant to conjure up ample style and performance for both. The double weave softshell fabric blocks windy weather and stretches for complete freedom of movement while the slick jean-style cut is intended to help you send an entirely different (although just as dangerous) type of project when you're done.

    • Nylon double-weave softshell fabric is breathable, quick drying, and weather resistant
    • 12% spandex and articulated knees provide freedom of movement
    • Trim jean-style cut with a button and zipper fly provide ample style for the bar
    • Low-profile waist is designed to fit beneath a harness
    • Zippered thigh and rear pocket keep valuables safely stowed
    • Item #ODR1134

    Perfect pants

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 30

    These are one of the few slim-fit hiking pants out there. They fit extremely well. I've used them up the DC route on Rainier in July and they were warm and water-resistant enough, while at the same time being comfortable in 35C days in Whistler, climbing in Squamish, Yosemite and the Sierras. Apart from some pocket stitching wearing out due to chimneys they have held up great. In fact, I've skinned my knees several times while climbing but the pant itself shows no wear. The waist does expand due to sweat, so I recommend getting the smallest size that will fit you.

    Fantastic pant!

    I have worn this pants a ton now. I have even taken them on a climb of Seneca Rocks in WV. I wore the OR feerossi pants, and I let my girlfriend wear these. She is not the most experienced climber, and it was her first multi pitch. Needless to say they got drug scrapped and rubbed all over those rocks for several hours of climbing and came out great. They have plenty of stretch for any activity, and look great on the mountain, or walking down the street. The fit was great for me, I am 5'8" 170lbs. I can't say enough good things about these pants, I'm going to have to buy my girlfriend her own set so she doesn't steal mine anymore!

    These Pants Do It All

    I wore these pants on the JMT this summer, have taken them on multiple backpacking and hiking trips, and wear them around town. I love the comfort and fit.

    These Pants Do It All

    Drew - WOW - what a photo! Thank you for taking the time to share about how cool these Voodoo Pants are. I am happy to say that we also have them for women! Great styling, rugged durability and awesome movement with the stretch.

    Thank you again!

    My Go-To Mountaineering Pants

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

    These things are absolutely flawless. Slim enough to minimize crampon snags and roomy enough for a medium base layer. From the PNW to the Tetons, along with numerous peaks here in Idaho, these pants have performed amazing. They're super lightweight, shed snow/rain, dry quickly, breath well, extremely abrasive resistant, and look good out on the town after a big climb. This is by far the most versatile garment I own, comfortable from -10F(w/ med base) to 80F. For reference, I'm 5' 10, 165lb and I purchased a 32, which is what I wear in regular jeans.

    Flattop Mountain

    OR Voodoo are awesome for winter hikes! Breathable yet windproof, with the ability to vary base layers for different conditions. Also, the loops at the cuffs connect to laces and are great for keeping snow out of boots.

    Wrong fit due to BC size chart

    • Fit:Runs large

    I've purchased size 36 as Backcountry size chart said 91cm waist. The real waist measure was 118cm. Too big to fix it. Even if I wanted to change it I wouldn't know which size to choose.

    As it was sent to me abroad, I cannot return it because BC doesn't take resposibility of transoceanic shipping cost (around 30usd from Spain).

    Pants quality seem to be good and they look well designed.

    runs a little big

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs large

    Awesome pants, used them on a climb and a really wet hike so far. They dried and breathed extremely well. Great stretchy fabric. I wear a 32 and depending on how bad the munchies were the night before in some brands 32 can be a little snug. In these I could have easily worn a 30. However with a belt the fit is great and leaves room for a baselayer for those colder fall/spring climbs.

    Don't Hesitate

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

    I bought a pair of these for a Costa Rica trip. They were the only thing that did not mold, and regardless of how sweaty I became these pants remained dry. Not to mention the fit looks great. I can wear these pants out to a bar and they would look great.

    Best climbing pant ever!

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

    I wear these pants almost exclusively when I climb. They are super durable, great amount of mobility, and they fit really well. I love the slim fit of these pants. I highly recommend these pants for climbing, hiking, running, any outdoor activity you may enjoy.

    Great pants... for beanpoles.

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

    Wish these fit. A lot. The fabric, fit, and finish is excellent, but the fit is really designed for beanpoles as far as I can tell. And I am not a bean pole.

    Nicely made, nice feel, great stretch.

    My favorite lightweight softshell pants!

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

    These are now my go-to pant for alpine rock climbing, sport climbing, hiking, you name it! They stretch great, and the fabric seems durable. The thigh pocket is great for some chapstick, topo map, power bar, while on a climb. Compared with OR's Ferrosi pant, I like these WAY better!

    Do All Pants

      Love these pants. A great technical pant for a number of things outside. I'm always traveling and spend a lot of time going from one environment to another. I like that the Voodo have a nice cut/style for cruisng the airport, but at the same time if I arrive to snow, I'm covered.

      decent warm weather ski touring pants

        Got a pair of these for spring ski touring- after years of using heavier softshells and finding them to be both sweat inducing and limiting my range of movement.

        For warmer days, when you're planning on skinning fast and not lazing around on windy summits they are an ideal touring pant. More light and breathable than any dedicated ski touring pant on the market.

        If you do plan on using them for ski touring be aware that the hand pockets aren't zipped- so you can't for example store your beacon it them (the back zippered pocket does the job for this though), and also that there is no reinforcement around the ankles so you might get them cut up from ski edges.

        I cut a hole in the back of mine to accommodate the throwbar on my scarpa aliens- and they look and function like a dedicated touring pant. Kind of like a pair of performance skimo tights, except they're not tights!

        Saved the day!

          I got these pants about a month ago and haven't taken them off yet. My first time wearing them, I wore them in Canadian Nationals Bouldering Championship and I was really impressed with the mobility and overall comfort I had in these pants. I wore them out yesterday to the crag where I thought it would be nice and warm out, i was surprised to find myself post-holing in waist deep snow, I got to the cliff and within a few minutes I was dry and ready to climb. Saved the day. These pants look great, and perform amazing, I strongly suggest you get a pair for this upcoming season.

          Hey, what's the exact Inseam length for a size 30" Waist? I'm 32" Inseam with a 30-31" Waist.

          Hi I'm having trouble figuring out which...


          I'm having trouble figuring out which one (30 or 32) is fitting well...

          I'm a Korean, and 177cm/72kg and usually wears 81 (or 32/asian fit) ---> waiste

          Some said on the internet that it was a little larger than they thought... and 30 is much like 32.

          Do you think it is ok to go with 30???

          No 36" inseam on these?
