Why We Like The Mountain Hardwear AP Active Pant

The Mountain Hardwear Hardwear AP Active Pant takes us from coffee in the city, to afternoon bouldering sessions, to evening strolls in the foothills with ease. Reflective strips under the cuff increase visibility on low-light commute rides home from the office, and the roll-up snap closure on the hem keeps our pants from getting caught in the crankset. Plus, with articulated knees and stretchy cotton construction, we always have a full range of motion through our daily adventures.


  • Casual style meets adventure-ready performance
  • Semi-fitted silhouette maintains a dapper look
  • Breathable, stretchy cotton blend lets us move in comfort
  • Reflective details offer a hint of visibility
  • Multiple pockets keep necessities organized
  • Runs small, so we recommend sizing up for ideal fit

Well made and good fit

Bought these for my partner to wear to work where he is indoors/outdoors back and forth in the rain but needs to look professional. They look nice like regular work pants but are way more functional. The fabric is really sturdy but lightweight. The black is super sleek, buying a couple other colors for him. He is a 33x33 so usually in between sizes, 34x32 fits him well. The legs are little wide but that’s the only imperfection. Great pants.

Pleased enough to buy 2nd pair

Overall very pleased with the AP Active pant. Material is stretchy-comfy; slim silhouette without being clingy. Front pockets could be deeper.

Length 32 was very short and not comparable to other Mountain Hardware pants I have ordered

Versatile pants

My second pair of these pants. Lightweight, stretchy, wrinkle & abrasion-resistant - they work well as outdoor wear or travel togs. Slim, hiking-pant silhouette, but perfectly presentable in town.

Weird fit!!

These ran a size small & are way too short in the legs. Ordered my BF usual size 32x32 and these ran at least a size small

Bad stitching

The stitching is terrible on these pants. It is coming out with very little use. I've already returned one pair of these pants and now the other pair is doing the same thing. The quality is going down hill at mountain hardware.

Improved little things, still great

I purchased an older series of these pants a few years ago and they are my go-to hiking pants, but not without some draw backs. The older pair are not quite as flexible, are a more baggy straight legged design and, while comfortable, they tend to bunch up uncomfortably at my hips and bits with my belt. This new series looks and feels like MH fixed all the prior little niggles, and continued to keep them as some of the best hiking pants I’ve ever worn

Pretty great pant

These are some of my favorite pants for outdoor activities to date. They’re comfortable, breathable, and look great. My only issue l, and the only reason I can’t give them a 5 star review, is because of the pockets. The pockets are way too high and the mesh lining gets snagged on almost everything I put in there. Don’t get me wrong, because the pockets are higher the pockets themselves are deeper, but they’re just way too high up. The color is great and goes with a lot of my gear. The fabric is also tough; I do a lot of hiking and these pants have stood up to the most rigorous trails so far. I’ll be looking to get another pair in a different color, but maybe wait until the pocket situation is fixed.

Very disappointed

I previously bought this type of pants a few years ago, and I loved them. I decided to purchase more because they held up well and the fit was good. This round I am less than pleased. 1) The pants are almost an inch shorter than my other ones, despite having ordered the same size. 2) They have a snag after 2 wears. I am a teacher, didn’t even try to hike in them. The other pairs I’ve had for years have zero snags. The new material is inferior and the length sizing is off.

Good pants, Small Pockets

Nice feeling pants, the main issue is that the pockets are so shallow it barely fits a phone.
