Old-school looks with new-school tech.
There's no disputing the fact that a red flannel shirt and pair of blue jeans is the most outdoorsy combo you could wear—just ask Paul Bunyan—but let's be honest, stiff denim isn't the most comfortable thing to wear to the crag or on the trail. The good news is that the Patagonia Men's Performance Regular Fit Denim Pants have that old-school lumberjack look with all the modern bells and whistles you need to stay comfortable in the great outdoors.
A regular chip off the old block, these denim pants have the same fit and feel of Patagonia's Regular Fit Denim Pants—regular rise waist, slightly relaxed through the thighs and seat, and straight through the legs—but with a mechanical stretch denim, Coolmax polyester, and DWR finish to repel light rain and the occasional stain. And if you do find yourself in town, their classic five-pocket layout and unsuspecting looks will let you blend in with the rest of the city folk; although, you may want to ditch that big blue ox that's been following you around.

Great Dark Wash Jeans
I just got these for my fiance because I have the women's ones and pretty much live in them. And he is now a convert too! The dark wash looks great, and they fit him really well.

I wanted these to work but they were way too baggy. I'm 5'9" and 180bls with pretty athletic thighs/calves and just can't fit into skinny jeans, so was hoping these would be slightly looser, but they are an extreme opposite from the straight fit - literally like twice as wide in the legs.
Way too baggy.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 30
- Height: 5'11"
- Weight: 150lbs
After buying and returning the straight fit jeans, I purchased the regular fit thinking they would fit better. Not the case. These were very baggy as the straight fit jeans were skin tight. Then waist sizing is at least true to size unlike the straight jeans. If you want baggy jeans the these will work. If you want skinny jeans buy the straight fit. If you want slim fitting jeans look else where.

Personally, I think that these pants run true to size. To get a perfect fit after the jeans break-in, you can size down the waist by 1". I typically wear 34" waist pants and shorts, and these fit me well in 34"... as mentioned, I could fit in the 33" waist if I wanted a more contoured fit.
