Softshell pants for snow, ice, and rock.
Designed to make light work of rough weather alpine ascents and long multipitch climbs, the Patagonia Simul Women's Alpine Pant delivers plenty of lightweight protection, breathability, and water resistance in a stretchy softshell. The double-woven knit is durable without being heavy, while the DWR coating sheds light precipitation and the OppoSet adjustable waist ensures a snug but but bunch-free fit. Patagonia also built the Simul with an articulated cut and gusseted crotch to help with your high stepping, French technique climbing, and glacier walking, and it included a narrow lower leg with a drawcord cuff to keep your pants out of the way and snow out of your boots.

- Q & A
Not for small waists and strong legs
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Size Bought: 6
I really wanted these to by my go to climbing pants but they simply are not cut for someone with muscular legs. I bought these in my usual size for Patagonia, 6. I found these pants to be uncomfortably tight through the thighs when I tried to move around. Yet, they were quite loose through the waist. They will be going back. Aside from the bad fit for my body type they seem to made of high quality, durable material and the stitching also seemed very well done.
Very comfy, but runs big! :-)
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Size 2
These pants are very comfortable to wear for most anything; however, they do run a little on the large side. I am 5'6" and weigh 110 - I had to go with the size 2, and they are still pretty loose-fitting. They will be perfect in the winter with long underwear though, so I don't mind too much. I like the fact that the bottoms will cinch up if needed, and that the pockets all zip. Because of the high waist, it keeps my climbing harness from rubbing. If these are worn high like they're intended (which mine won't because the waist is too loose on me), the inseam will only be about 32". I have longer legs and are kind of grateful that the pants fall a little below my actual waist, and therefore give me an extra inch or so for the length. lol
