    Best pants ever

    • Size Bought: 33L
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    I took these pants to South East Asia. I took them everywhere. Super light and fit perfectly. Patagonia nailed these pants.

    New version is worse.

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

    The new version of these pants is worse than the old. The zippers are loud and the pockets are conspicuous. No longer a clean looking pant that doesn't necessarily look like it belongs on the trail. Also the lack of articulation around the knee now makes the pants look odd and straight-legged. Not a fan. Now I have to look for a new pair of go-to pants. Really unfortunate. And Navy Blue is gone too. I don't understand Patagonia sometimes.

    Full size or two too small

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 34
    • Height: 6'5"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    The construction of the pants seems good, but there is no way the pair I ordered was actually a 34 waist. It was at least one, possibly even two sizes too small. The pants seem good enough to try ordering a size up, though.

    My favorite climbing pants

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33/short
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I might have a pant problem. I have a pair of all the major brands and styles (Prana Zion, Brion, Marmot Arch to name a few) and these are my favorite overall. They are pretty lightweight, so when things get chilly, I opt for different ones, but these are great in all other cases. The fit slimmer through the leg than other styles, but are not too tight through the thigh, which is a must for my thunder thighs. Also (and most importantly) chalk dusts right off! I will likely end up buying some more pairs.

    Favorite Pants

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34 Short
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    These pants fit well, dry fast, and hold up to lots of abuse. I've had my first pair for 4 years and they've been my go to for all backpacking trips, which include lots of bushwhacking, and off trail adventure.
    They have a slimming fit, and seem true to size

    Great pants!

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

    What could be better than a pair of pants that are super comfy in the Cascade backcountry and in chasing kids around town. Buy them, you won't regret it.

    Best "adventure" pants that I own

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I bought these on sale & decided to order other colors after a few weeks. Lightweight and cool for warm(er) days with the typical Patagonia quality. These may be the most comfortable pants I own. You'll also get a lot of compliments, if that means anything to you.

    too small, too loose

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 30
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I felt these fit a lot smaller in the waist than my other pants the same size (30). They were also too loose for what I was looking for. I wish Patagonia would make this same thing with a tapered leg!

    I wish I had more pairs of these pants

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    These pants are absolutely awesome for all sorts of situations. I love wearing them when I go out for long multi-pitch climbs, just hanging around the house, going out with friends, or anywhere in between. They fit incredibly well, are lightweight and super comfortable! The zipper pocket is just the icing on the cake. Super handy and representative of the overall quality Patagonia offers in their pants.

    Blue slightly tighter than tan

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32 Short
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 173lbs

    Absolutely love these pants. I bought them mainly for office work slacks, but wear them casually out of work. Glass blue pants purchased after tan were slightly tighter in the waist, seat and rise. The 32 Short tans fit my 173 pound 5'8" frame perfectly. Very comfortable and have plenty of give for an active person. Really happy with my purchase. This was my first Patagonia product and won't be my last.

    Climbing Galore

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium Regular
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 167lbs

    I was skeptical at first that these pants would hold up on the granite of Yosemite and the other places I climb but was very impressed. I have had several pairs of BD Castleton pants with the double knee and they wear out faster than I would like. The Nylon and Spandex hold together very well and I have yet to have any issues with tears or rubbing and I have put at least 100 pitches of crack climbing on these pants already. I could also wear these out and look stylish, or have worn them 20 days in a row and be living in my van and nobody would know!

    That Fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I love the fit of the Quandary pant - finally a technical fabric pant with a slimmer fit! I did, however, return the pair I originally ordered because the blue ones totally look like hospital scrubs. I just picked up the Tan color and I'm way happier.

    Business casual

      Loving these pants. I like a straighter fit, not necessarily slim, and these fit the bill. I'm 5-11" and 180 and a 32" waist fits snug enough not to need a belt, but enough that I can get a shirt tucked in if I needed to. I worked out with them this morning and they handled everything I could throw at them. Durable, lots of movement and good looking - what more can you ask?

      Great quality!!!

        I gave this as a gift. After reading all the reviews, I decided to buy this pair. They are super comfortable and stretchy, great for hiking! It's also very breathable. The fit is great! I ordered 33 long, the gift recipient is 6'2" and 188 lbs.

        Great quality!!!
        Unanswered Question

        Do these actually have an articulated knee or not? Description says yes; reviewer says no. Patagonia website shows stitching around knee area but not seeing it in this photo.
