Why We Like The Hardwear AP Pant

The Mountain Hardwear Men's Hardwear AP Pant tackles our bike commutes through the city, afternoon bouldering sessions, impromptu post-work nachos with our coworkers, and everything in between. Reflective strips under the cuff increase visibility on twilight bike rides home from the brewery, crag, or office, and we love the roll-up snap closure on the hem that keeps our pants from getting caught in the crankset.

Versatile Camp Pant

Great pant for hiking, camping and hanging out. Bought a couple pair for a camping, research trip and wore multiple days while doing some hiking and field work. Great fit, looks good and good weight for changing mountain conditions.

The sizing is significantly different than the AP Active pant. I tried an AP active paint on locally and 30 x 32 was too tight and too short. I ordered this AP pant in 31 x 34 and the waist was at least 2 inches too big. Either the sizing varies significantly between their pants of different materials or there is inconsistency in production. Returning and not planning to re-order since they do not offer a 29" waist and a 30 will likely be too large based on how big the 31 is. I typically wear 30 x 34 of most athletic brands.

Tear in the knee the first time outdoors

Size Bought:
5' 10"

Got these pants for Christmas. Have 4 in other colors, but those are the older version. The newer model is a little more snug and less giving/flexible but still seemed to do the trick…for a while. I wore them around town running errands and whatnot but the first time I really took them outdoors this May they tore. All I did was kneel down while putting in a tent peg. Boom, I stand up and see a tear in my left knee. Didn’t seem to kneel on anything sharp. Just tore. I’d like to think this is a fluke and just a bad sew job or patch of fabric. If not, then the quality has really dipped. Some of my other AP pants are almost 10 years old and still function like the day I bought them. Can’t really return them so I’m stuck with them. If it is just a one off I’d change my review to a 5 because up until that moment I was loving them. But outdoor gear is meant for the outdoors. And these left me unimpressed.

My husband loves these

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 8"

Got a second pair in a different color for my husband. Makes his but look good, I think because they are a little tighter around his bum. The snaps that keep the pants rolled up are a great touch.

Comfortable, functional, durable. Work, hike, or play, they work! I ended up buying them in each color. I normally wear a 36w but had to buy these in 38w.

Gym rats be aware.

I'm so glad I didn't order these online, I opted to try on my normal size at a local retailer and they were crazy tight, like early 2000s skinny jeans. I then tried on 2 sizes up from my regular waist size and they fit nicely with a belt. If you work out and have thighs and glutes that are semi-built order a size or two up in the waist for mobility. As far as quality goes, I like the thickness and rigidity of the material, definitely a nice resistant fabric.

Major shrinkage after washing, quality control issues

Order at least one size longer for length. Pants shrunk 2 inches after first washing and no longer wearable. My previous AP pants from last year did not shrink like this, and fit completely different.
