    LOVE these pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 6S

    I bought these pants primarily for travel, but I found that they are perfect everyday pants as well. They are super comfortable and fit well. The stretch is just right. A couple of things I'd note- the zip pocket does fit my iPhone 5, but it's quite "lumpy" due to the clingy fabric. I wish the pocket was a bit larger or at least not as tight. Another zip pocket on the other side would be nice for a map/GPS/etc. For sizing, it's really true to size. Following the reviews here, I bought a size 6S and it fits great. But it does stretch out a bit with use, and so it's a bit big after wearing it for a while. The drawstring waist helps alot. If you're between sizes, you may want to keep this in mind when selecting your size. A 4 might have fit better but been snug at first. The length of the "short" is perfect for me, as I have about a 30" inseam. I would like to get this in more colors!

    Perfect fit for this non-perfect body

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10

    I wanted pants that I could roll up, had pockets including a side leg pocket, had some stretch to them and fit my not so tiny waist but still a size 10. These fit and met all my requirements for hiking pants.
    These fit perfectly and have just enough stretch all over including the waist. You don't need to have a tiny waist or thighs for these to fit. I am still able to wear my knee brace under the pants and the pants do not feel constricted in any way.
    The one concern I had was whether my Galaxy 5 (without the protective case) would fit in the right leg pocket and it does. Much easier to grab it out of there than wrestle it out of my backpack's hipbelt pocket.
    They roll up just enough to provide some air movement/venting on the legs as I did get pretty warm at first in them. I feel confident these will be perfect my for my upcoming Mt. San Jacinto and Grand Canyon hikes.

    Winter Spring Summer or Fall

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 12

    Roll them up for Summer. Roll them down in the other seasons. They are light weight, but can wear undergarments if you don't have a long down coat going from indoor to outdoor. I wear these well throughout the week. Bend stretch and just plain comfortable. I've had 2 pair for 2 years. They look brand new and I wear them weekly.

    Great pants!

    • Size Bought: 4

    Love these pants! I am 5'8", 118 lbs, and really debated between buying a 2 or a 4. I finally went with the size 4 based on some reviews I read. They could not fit better! I am fairly straight from waist to hips, and long waisted. I consider the rise on these high for Patagonia based on pants of theirs I have owned in the past, and the higher rise for me is a plus. These pants come about 2" below my waist. They have a nice straight fit through the hips and thighs (no jodphur like curves) and the 32" inseam is a perfect length for me . I'm wearing them rolled up to the capris length right now and that feature works well and looks nice. I am 67 years old, so a perfect fit for me is not skin tight, but these definitely don't look baggy. Based on that, I would recommend these pants to anyone who wants a good hiking pant that will also work as town pants or capris. If debating between sizes, size up for a looser and more comfortable fit. Worked for me!

    Really great pants

    I bought these pants for thru-hiking this summer. When they arrived, I loved the fit and look and started wearing them everywhere. I am pretty straight through the waist and hips, and these fit me well. I have gardened, hiked, and gone out on the town in these. These resist water, have lots of stretch, but are very abrasion resistant. I will be purchasing more of these soon and highly recommend them.

    Sister Loves Them

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I got the Quandry pants as a birthday gift for my sister. She took them on her trip to Africa and she absolutely loved them. They offered great lightweight protection from sun and mosquitoes, all while being comfortably stretchy and breathable.
    If you're looking for a pair of pants to be active in, definitely check these out!

    Best Pants I've Ever Owned

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 4

    I bought these pants over a year ago and they are still in great condition. I would argue that they are my most worn pants for most if not all occasions (casual, work, outdoors). These pants are very comfortable and have great range of motion. I frequent these pants for climbing and the abrasion resistance of these pants are absolutely amazing. There is no fraying of the fabric that I can find. I love the fact that I can have the pant leg down when hiking trails to protect myself from bugs and plants, but I can also roll them up when I ascend a climb. The side pocket on the leg makes it easy to have a harness on and still have my valuables handy.

    Pants are also breathable and very water resistant! So when abroad, they are easily hand-washed and dry very quickly.



    Notes about fit:

    I am a size 0. However, at the time when I made my purchase, a size 4 was all that was left. I took the risk and am still happy with my purchase despite the roomier fit. The pants have an elastic string that you can tighten a little more if needed. I do need to have a belt with these pants due to my sizing up, but my legs thank me for it. The inseam hem is 32" and is a bit long for me, so I hemmed the pants about an inch or so and they are now the perfect length!



    Overall, I am so happy with these pants and am looking to buy another just so I can have another color. :)
