This pant fights back against abrasion on climbing routes and brush on the side of trails with a durable but stretchy nylon blend. Meanwhile, the UPF 50 rating gives us peace of mind while solving a tricky problem in the hot sun.

Very Comfortable Not A Pet Hair Magnet

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great fit, comfortable and pet hair doesn’t accumulate on them like on my other pants—i.e.jeans and cotton products.

Needed some new ones

I have the previous version and came to order some more and I'm reading all the reviews about how the new version nobody likes so I don't feel I can even give them a try with all the negative comments. Guess I'll look for comparable characteristics in a diff brand.

Comfortable and flexible.

Nice fit and flexibility. Comfortable for hikes and wearing around. They have a built in belt that you may or may not like. I would prefer to have belt hoops and use my own belt but, the included belt is comfortable and works fine. You may feel differently.

LOVED the old version, HATE the new

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Please bring back the old version without the integrated belt and slightly less tight fit. The old version are my favorite pair of pants and after at least 5 years maybe 8 or 9 are starting to fall apart. I've been stitching and patching them back together but would love to buy several new pairs to replace them, but not with the altered design. I get what you where going for with the new design but you've completely changed an existing and well loved product such that it no longer captures what we so enjoyed about the previous design. Perhaps the new design would be better suited as a different model but please restore the Arch Rock Pants to their previous glory!

Old Version Better

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the old version. I have owned 10 pairs of the old ones and wear them daily (going all the way back to when they were available in long). The BEST pants that I have ever owned. They were perfect in fit and durability. The newer version doesn't fit as well (tighter) and the belt limits wear options. If you bring back the old version, I will by 10 more pairs to last for the next 5 years.

Material great!! Pockets awful.

I've owned 3 pairs before the design change i.e. I like them. I get the impression that whoever came up with the new design hasn't actually worn pants before, or they designed women's clothes. They're arguably more stylish than before but I was at a coffee shop in china and another customer came over and said "Your phone fell out". Definitely not cool. You need to change the design to more of jean style pockets and deeper IMO, plus velcro or a zipper on the back pockets. The side pocket is not good to hold anything and if you put something in there it rubs a hole in your leg. I never use it. Great material and personally I like the built in belt and see it as an improvement. These can be excellent traveling pants and they're easy to wash on the road. Another suggestion: add some sort of blue color so they can double as jeans - I'll buy some if you do.

Please return to the previous design

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Like many others here I'm a huge fan of the previous version, It's my everyday wear and adventure pant. I have many pairs. I tried the new version and the built in belt really limits the utility as a everyday wear pant and gets in the way of the pack belt.

Arch Rock Pant

These newer pants are not nearly as well made or designed as the previous Arch Rock pant.

Great value

I love the material you guys use. I wear these pants in a job I have to be on my feet all day walking around. Im always comfortable and they are also rain resistant. I love your products. You should give your existing customers a discount for customer referrals. I think you would generate lots more sales!
