John M.wrote a review of Patagonia R1 Pant - Men's on November 29, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
I really hoped I'd hate these pants. I bought these on a whim recently after being tempted with a sale price and a newly deposited Christmas bonus check from work. Needless to say I was excited; Patagonia is great! Sales are awesome! What can go wrong? While I waited for them to arrive, the anticipation and honeymoon feeling wore off as I realized I just paid over $100 for freakin sweatpants. Are you kidding me? I could have had like 28 McFlurrys! Buyers remorse set in and I had it resolved to return these once they arrived on my doorstep. But lo and behold they arrived and I stupidly decided to try them on. Ya know, why not? They're here, might as well see what all the fuss is about. A sense of euphoria crept over me as I slipped them on one leg at a time. The next level comfort, the warmth, the perfect cut...I was stuck. And the euphoria is now being matched with frustration about how these do not suck like I wanted them too, not in the slightest. Now I have to keep them and somehow explain to my fiance how and why I bought $100 sweatpants. Because they're God's gift to mankind that's why! Lay off me! And while she is struck with disbelief about how my wallet is not unlike a cliffs of Niagara Falls, I will be in pure bliss with my lower half caressed by the unparalleled comfort of this heavenly pant.
