    Details

    Big mountains and big cities.

    You're just as likely to find the Patagonia Men's Performance Straight Fit Denim Pant in the heart of San Francisco as you would find it atop El Cap. That's because it represents a harmonious balance of outdoorsy performance and city-worthy style. Its fabric is a blend of breathable organic cotton and moisture-wicking Coolmax that stretches for uninhibited mobility on the mountain. Its slim and straight fit looks just as good swinging on a climbing rope as it does swinging on the dance floor. Patagonia treated the denim in DWR to fend off light moisture and spilled beer.

    • Patagonia's performance denim for urban and mountain environments
    • Organic cotton denim blend with Coolmax for moisture management
    • DWR treatment fends off raindrops and light moisture

    Sweet Jean but too Skinny

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    I wanted these to work but they were way too tight in my thighs. I'm 5'9" and 180bls with pretty athletic thighs/calves and just can't fit into skinny jeans. I was hoping the straight fit would be a little looser, but it just wasn't enough.

    wears out quickly

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

    I wish I could give these jeans 3.5 stars. They're extremely comfortable and look really good but they wear out very quickly.

    I got a pair of the nonperformance patagonia straight denim jeans about a year and a half ago and wore them everyday for work in an office. I also biked pretty frequently in them (roughly 30-40 miles/week to get around town) but 6 months later they had a small tear in the crotch. I brought them into the patagonia store and they replaced them immediately with no cost to me. I kept using the nonperformance pair they replaced and cut back on biking in them. 6 months later they were starting to wear thin the same place, so I brought them in to the patagonia store again to get them repaired. they repaired them and I got a pair of the performance jeans to try them out. like I said, these are even more comfortable than the nonperformance type, but 5 months later, they had an even larger hole than the pair i had gotten replaced less than a year before :/.

    To be fair, I do wear them every day, and patagonia is really good about replacing them/repairing them when they wear out, but I expected them to last longer than 5 or 6 months. The second time i brought them in, the clerk said the performance jeans wouldn't have the same problems with tears in the crotch as the non-performance type. I guess he was wrong. Anyway, I just brought the ripped ones into the store today and they replaced them again. we'll see what happens.

    Skinny Jeans

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 30 short

    These Jeans run super small. I'm a 30" waist and i couldn't even close the button barely. These are not slim fitting, they're compression jeans. I go at least 2 sides bigger in the waist size if you're considering buying these tights (I mean jeans). They do seem to be made well and I really liked the color.

    Timeless.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 28

    Originally I bought these for my husband, who deduced that they were too narrow in the waist for him (he waffles between a 28 and a 29 depending on the brand, but decided that the 29 in the Performance Straight Fit was more comfortable), so I adopted the 28-waist jean instead and I'm kind of obsessed with this pant. It's super convenient that boyfriend-style pants are all the rage right now, because I love the way this pant fits and feels. I definitely could have opted for the short inseam, but regular does just fine. I tight-roll these jeans when I need to get the cuffs out of the way.

    I don't have much in the way of curves, but where I do have them, the fabric stretches comfortably to accommodate them. The 28 fits comfortably on my natural waist, not too tight or too loose. The thighs are taut, but not painted on, and the rest of the denim fits as a men's jean typically does. The wash is dark, but ages super well when you wear them as often as I do. Also, I'm a 25 in the Patagonia women's denim, for fit reference. I wish, wish, wish that Patagonia had the performance denim line available for women, but I'll take a boyfriend-fit jean any day of the week.

    Skinny jeans. Large waist.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 31

    These were way too skinny. Not slim, skin tight. Think Levi's 510 or 511 with tapered ankles. The waist sizing is off. I'm a 30 and ordered a 31 which was still pretty tight. I ordered the grey color which was really nice and had a hint of blue. The denim is very soft. Not very water repellent. I wouldn't recommend these unless you have crazy skinny legs. And I'm a pretty skinny guy.

    daily denim

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 31

    I've been wearing these several times a week when it's cool enough for the last two years. The wash still looks great and the fit is perfect. Overall, these are a timeless pair of jeans in every way. Fit, wash, durability, stretch - they're 5 stars in all areas.

    Forge Grey is great new color!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34X32

    I just got the Patagonia Performance Straight Fit jeans and the color is awesome. It's a perfect break from traditional blue jeans and somehow feels a bit softer than my old blue ones. Fit is true to size.

    Awesome pants, but...

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs small

    I got these pants for my boyfriend, and they certainly do function as advertised. Great jeans for climbing or all-around adventuring. They are tough, comfortable, and flexible.

    However, the polyester content is what ended up disappointing. Once the smell of sweat or mildew got into the fabric - my boyfriend could never get rid of it. It's like polypro. Oh the stink.

    I'm checking out some small startup companies on IndieGoGo that make stretchy adventure-type jeans from 99% organic cotton (instead of 71% here). Love you Patagonia, but seriously, the polyester isn't necessary...

    Fantastic

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34x32

    Fit great, look solid, and the material is really, really nice. Just a bit of stretch, and they dry quickly. My only complaint, as others have mentioned, is that it would be nice to have some more wash options. Regardless, I'll probably pick up another pair.

    Great active jean

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 32/Short

    These jeans are much stretchier than normal jeans making them great for active lifestyles. They are stylish and super versatile. I'll rock them in class then hit the rock wall afterwards no questions asked.

    I got typically wear size 30/30 pants but after reading the reviews I got these guys in 32/30 and they fit well (maybe a little large in the waist). Also I'd call these pants more of a skinny fit than a straight fit but they still allow plenty of mobility with the stretch.

    Overall they seem like a great pant and I'd recommend to all.

    Great Pants!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 34 Short

    These pants are awesome. If you are looking for a comfortable, straight fit jean, that isn't super skinny, these are the ticket. I just bought my second pair in grey and they are awesome. I love the fact that they have a bit of elastic stretch to them. After you try a pant that has stretch it is impossible to go back. I wear these to work primarily, but if I decide to go climbing or go on a walk with the dog afterward they allow for plenty of movement so there is no need to change. I did find that they run a little small in the waist; I am normally a solid 32 , but I bought these in a 34.

    Bitchin

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 32 / Short

    I just grabbed a pair of these since I liked my Patagonia All Wear pants so much. These have the perfect amount of stretch, and are very well made. I typically wear a 30 / 30 in other brands, but went with the 32 / short in these and they fit perfectly.

    Strange fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Size Bought: 33/32

    I wanted to love these pants, but found that the fit was not right for me. I'm not oddly shaped, and have a pretty standard inseam, but found that these pants were really long from the waist to the top of the thigh.

    This left me with the option to wear than way up above my waistline (Erkel style), or return. Unfortunately I had to return them.

    Other than the less than perfect fit in the crotch, the legs fit well (a bit slim) and the stretch fabric on these pants is awesome. I wish they fit me, because they are killer jeans!

    Rad Jeans

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30/Short

    I purchased a 30/Short, which is my usual pant size, and they actually fit a bit longer than I had expected (more like a 31 or 32 length); The waist size is spot on.

    Fit aside, these jeans are extremely comfortable, have a great amount of stretch, and the forge grey color has a very subtle blue tint, which I really like.

    Runs Small

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 34

    I typically wear a 32, I purchased a 32 and they were a little tight and a little short. I sized up to a 34 and they fit great. Super comfortable and they break in nicely!

    Unanswered Question

    Will these jeans shrink?

    Usually wear a 30 so not sure if I should size up as I like to just throw my jeans in the dryer after washing.

    What the size of inseam for the 34/reg?
