    Rock, paper, scissors.

    But mostly rock, right? That's what the Patagonia Men's RPS Rock Pant thinks. Polyester and nylon create a light and breathable environment during technical multi-pitch climbs, with articulated patterning keeping the odds in your favor. The pockets are constructed to lie flat and comfortable beneath your harness and placed for easy access. The waist and cuffs of the RPS can be adjusted according to desired bulk, streamlining your way to the top of every route.

    • Lightweight pants for multi-pitch rock climbing
    • Durable fabric is breathable and quick-drying
    • DWR finish helps shed light rain during the approach
    • Articulated design and gusseted crotch provide mobility
    • Low-profile shock cord and lock let you cinch down the cuffs
    • Patagonia was founded by climber Yvon Chouinard in 1973
    • Item #PAT02C1

    Great quality, well made pants.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    These pants are very lightweight and comfortable. They have been great hiking and have held up nicely sport climbing. The only down side that I have found is that the built-in adjustable “belt” doesn’t want to stay tighten where I put it. It’s not a big deal because they still fit pretty well but I will notice they feel like they are sagging just a little under my harness while I’m climbing and it’s difficult to adjust with a harness on.

    Great pants

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

    Great all around outdoor pants. First used them on hike through Glacier NP and loved them. Light but tough. They dried quickly. Good fit. Like the draw string bottom to use when climbing.

    Quality material but too tight in places

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 30
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    I sport climb and boulder (in and out of doors) in the central Texas area. I bought these pants hoping I’d find my go-to climbing attire for the chillier months, for eliminating a few shin scrapes, and to add a layer between my sweaty legs and the rest of the world. These pants would probably have done the trick, but after trying them on (and performing mandatory toe hook demonstrations on various door knobs and tables around my house as well as doing some quality lunges in the living room) I quickly realized a major issue for me: the saddle region (er, um, the groin area) was seriously tight and restrictive. I concluded that I just couldn’t have my junk all bound up like that on the regular (think: casually having these pants on almost compared to having my junk all scrunched up in a climbing harness on the wall...). In the end, I decided to return the pants. I’ll keep searching! P.S.: I love Patagonia gear and I hope I find something else that fits my needs a little better.

    Best hiking pants/do anything in pants!

      I love the cooling material. The adjustable waistband is great too! Now I’m waiting on another sale so I can get another color in these! Thank you, Patagonia it’s a homerun!!!

      Patagonia RPS rock pants

      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Size 30
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 115lbs

      Liked the pants except they were marked as size 30 when in fact they were size 32! I had the length shortened before I discovered the size error. They wouldn't stay up with a belt. I ended up giving them away. Would suggest that you measure your purchase as soon as you receive it to determine the correct size. Patagonia need better quality control wherever they have these manufactured.

      I look good!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 34x34
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 200lbs

      I look so good in these pants. I love the fact that they feel like pajama pants, but look like I'm getting ready for business. They are so comfortable!!!!!

      Spot On

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      The first thing I will say is that these are more durable than the description lets on. They're my new go-to over my Venga pants also from Patagonia. The breathe very well and the cut moves with you in a way that they go unnoticed, unlike my Vengas which keep moisture and stick to my legs in big moves. I'd say an overall out of the park home run on these, Patagonia.

      Supreme Quality

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Size 33
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 185lbs

      I used these pants during a climbing expedition in Colorado, and they were marvelous! The quality is top-notch: comfortable, and dependable. These pants withstood rocks, water, and glissading -- no rips or tears, and kept me dry.

      Differences in sizes

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 31
      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 150lbs


      Buy this pantalon in blue (31), which I thought perfect, after buying the black (31) same but the latter is bigger than normal and when it is adjusted wrong.

      Comfortable and functional

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 33
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      These pants fit great on me, which is rare because I have pretty big thighs. They're great for climbing and most activities you would do outdoors. They dry quick, and the cinch cuff is super nice so you can pull them up to your calf or even your knees if you need to.

      Adjustable waist slips

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 30
      • Height: 5'6"
      • Weight: 140lbs

      I really wanted to like these pants. They get good reviews and I generally like Patagonia gear. The adjustable waist slips on my pair of pants, so within a couple minutes of walking I'd need to tighten it again. I'm generally about a 29" waist , but ordered 30" since they don't make a 29". I figured I'd cinch up the excess with the adjustable waist.
      These also seemed to fit a little tight in the thighs. Not a major issue, but given the other fit issue I think I'm going to return them and look for something else.

      wish they were longer

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 155lbs

      A problem I've had in my life is having a longer inseam than waist size. These pants only come in set inseam lengths. This makes these floods on me when the waist fits and even though it's not a huge deal it looks funny. Other than that they are a nice material that performs well and the pockets are functional.

      So good

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      These pants are absolutely incredible for climbing. The adjustable waist and cinch cuffs are perfect for getting just the right fit. The mobility is invaluable for being comfortable through the variety of moves climbing can require of you. I climbed Fine Jade and Honeymoon Chimney in Castle Valley in these pants and they were perfect. From thin face , to offwidth and chimney climbing, these pants were perfectly comfortable for all of it. These are my go to for any big climb.

      New FAVORITE!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      Of all of outdoors shorts and pants that I own, these are by far my favorite pair. They feel more durable and of higher quality than any other climbing/outdoor pants I've ever seen. Everything about the pants is high quality and on top of that, the green color is amazing. I am 5'11" and weigh 180 lbs and the size 32 waist fits me perfect. The only semi-negative thing about the pants is that a size 32 for me at a 5'11" are a little long. However, this is completely negated by the elastic ankle straps which are excellent.

      Great light weight pants

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 35
      • Height: 6'2"

      These pants are awesome, I've been wearing them way more than my stretch zions because they're a little lighter weight and the cinch at the cuff is way nicer than having to fold up/snap your pants up. Liked them so much I snagged a second pair. They do run a touch big, so I ordered a single waist size smaller than I normally wear

      Great light weight pants

      Durable

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 30
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      These look nice and fit well. The shockcord cuffs are a great feature for keeping the pant bottoms out of the way, and the angled zipper pocket is easy to use either standing or sitting. The integrated tightening thing is cool and also works well.
      The fabric seems quite durable so far. It's survived a few climbs on the very rough rock of Powerlinez, but did get a small hole in the knee when my bike slipped out on a high-speed turn on concrete... However, I think I fared far better than if I'd been wearing shorts. Great pants!

      Love these pants!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Size 34
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 195lbs

      The only other technical/climbing pants that I can compare these pants to is the Prana Wyatt and these blow them out of the water both in term of functionality and comfort. They do run slightly larger, but then that might be due to the fact that most pants I wear are slim, and these are labeled as regular. I ordered size 34 and they fit more like 35/36. They are very thin, but the material is tried and true and holds up quite well. The cinch cuffs on these are what sold me, they are great when climbing but nice to have them down for the approach if the temperatures demand it. I will be ordering another 2 of these! Great pants!
