    stretch creates sags

    • Size Bought: 30-30
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    Good fit and pocket design, nice light material, BUT in my humble opinion the 2-way stretch, which goes north-south (length) and not east-west (width) creates ugly awkward sagging when you carry a full wallet or modern cell phone, or flashlight in zipped thigh or back pockets. I am surprised nobody else mentions this issue. Stretchy thin material is comfy but also comes at a price. My search continues.

    Smaller than normal

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 34 Long
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 189lbs

    I tried my normal size, and the next size up and unfortunately they fit funny in upper thigh and waist - like yoga pants tight. Sort of bummed!

    I liked these trousers so much!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36/34
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 215lbs

    They are true to size, stretch without being baggy and cool. Perfect summer wear, hiking along a trail or around town. I liked them so much I bought another pair.

    Cooler than the other side of the pillow

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 38
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    These are terrific. Comfortable, light, and good looking. I will buy another pair in different color. May want to size up if you want a bit more room.

    Love the Quandary line

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 31" regular
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I have both the Quandary shorts and pants. I bought size 32 in the shorts and they're a tad big, but the 31" pants fit perfectly. I wear a 31 typically, so they're definitely true-to-size. The quality is great, as you might expect from Patagonia, and the fit is great. They're not too loose, but not too tight and the material breathes really well.

    So comfy

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 35 Long
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 215lbs

    I wore these as my second pair of pants on a camping trip with the family. They were perfect! I look forward not to just camping with them but traveling with them. They have a perfect side pocket which will be great on planes for passports and IDs. They are very light and I love the drawstrings for in the event I ever lose weight I can tighten them. The only issue was I went with the long because I didn't want bugs to crawl up and I only have a 30 inch inseam. So they definitely are long if that is what you are looking for.

    Stop looking

      I started my search for a comfortable, durable, quick drying pant with these and this is where it ended. I hike and climb in these and they are beyond comfortable. When hiking, even when temperatures reach up near 95, these breathe well, wick sweat away, and dry quickly in the rain. I even reach for these to go out and about. You can find these on sale often, and are a great deal. For reference I’m 5’10” 180lbs and the 32 regular fits great.

      Cool and comfort

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      It's very cool in summer days and free of move. Like the feature of DWR and UPF50 (No UPF50 lable found), but the leg is a little bit loose.

      Best pants ever

      • Size Bought: 33L
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 195lbs

      I took these pants to South East Asia. I took them everywhere. Super light and fit perfectly. Patagonia nailed these pants.

      Full size or two too small

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 34
      • Height: 6'5"
      • Weight: 195lbs

      The construction of the pants seems good, but there is no way the pair I ordered was actually a 34 waist. It was at least one, possibly even two sizes too small. The pants seem good enough to try ordering a size up, though.

      My favorite climbing pants

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 33/short
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      I might have a pant problem. I have a pair of all the major brands and styles (Prana Zion, Brion, Marmot Arch to name a few) and these are my favorite overall. They are pretty lightweight, so when things get chilly, I opt for different ones, but these are great in all other cases. The fit slimmer through the leg than other styles, but are not too tight through the thigh, which is a must for my thunder thighs. Also (and most importantly) chalk dusts right off! I will likely end up buying some more pairs.

      Favorite Pants

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 34 Short
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 190lbs

      These pants fit well, dry fast, and hold up to lots of abuse. I've had my first pair for 4 years and they've been my go to for all backpacking trips, which include lots of bushwhacking, and off trail adventure.
      They have a slimming fit, and seem true to size

      Great pants!

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

      What could be better than a pair of pants that are super comfy in the Cascade backcountry and in chasing kids around town. Buy them, you won't regret it.

      Best "adventure" pants that I own

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      I bought these on sale & decided to order other colors after a few weeks. Lightweight and cool for warm(er) days with the typical Patagonia quality. These may be the most comfortable pants I own. You'll also get a lot of compliments, if that means anything to you.

      Unanswered Question

      Do these pants have any metal in them: zipper, rivets, buttons?

      Unanswered Question

      Do these actually have an articulated knee or not? Description says yes; reviewer says no. Patagonia website shows stitching around knee area but not seeing it in this photo.
