Great Pants!

These are made well and have a modern fit that looks in place wherever you wear them. They're made with a comfortable, lightweight fabric with a bit of stretch. But not so lightweight that they totally lack durability or feel. The zipper wallet and thigh pockets are nice details. The short length seems real close to a 30" inseam that I usually wear.

Bought a new pair as wanted a different color and loved the old version. Bought same size but these are WAY tighter. Closer inspection of the label says slim fit, but didn't even know these came in different fits. Explains why they don't fit the same as my older pair.

I wear a 32/34 in all pants, so I got 32/Long in these pants. I'm athletic but definitely on the skinny side and still, these pants are unbearably tight in the upper thigh area. There's not enough room in the crotch area and I can barely move in these things without my voice going up an octave. I'd highly recommend sizing up in the waist; hopefully that gives a little more room to breathe.

Finally pulled the trigger on these after going thru a bunch of other pants that just weren't perfect. These pants are great! Fit was slightly small (mainly because I'm using these primarily for backpacking/talus scrambling). Originally ordered 32/reg, returned for 33/reg and was just right. Nice soft but durable material. I like that the are simple and functional. The internal drawstring is great as I don't want to wear a belt while backpacking. I hike primarily in the southern Sierra where in normal 3 season hiking rain pants are overkill and wet out from the inside. I use these as "around camp" pants, daytime bug protection, or for those sunrise summit attempts when temps are low. These pants are great for all of those conditions. They also look nice as well so no worries about wearing them in town. Just spent a week backpacking in these and they washed nice and clean when I got home after dirt, tree sap, sitting on the ground, etc. The price is a bit high but worth it. Loving these so far!

Wear for work, casual, climbing, hiking, etc. Stretch works great. They are light & durable. After my son bought me a pair 3 years ago, I've bought 3 more.

I'm pretty happy with these pants after I've gotten them. I took them to a camping trip at Zion National Park and they were great to wear while we bouldered in the morning and hiked Angel's Landing later in the day. A full-length gusset and stretch fabric are awesome as they don't restrict mobility, and there is an internal drawstring that provides a snug fit, keeping the waistband in place.

Great for wearing to the office or being outside all day. Well made and can take a beating. Stretchy but tough.

stretch creates sags

Good fit and pocket design, nice light material, BUT in my humble opinion the 2-way stretch, which goes north-south (length) and not east-west (width) creates ugly awkward sagging when you carry a full wallet or modern cell phone, or flashlight in zipped thigh or back pockets. I am surprised nobody else mentions this issue. Stretchy thin material is comfy but also comes at a price. My search continues.

I tried my normal size, and the next size up and unfortunately they fit funny in upper thigh and waist - like yoga pants tight. Sort of bummed!

They are true to size, stretch without being baggy and cool. Perfect summer wear, hiking along a trail or around town. I liked them so much I bought another pair.

These are terrific. Comfortable, light, and good looking. I will buy another pair in different color. May want to size up if you want a bit more room.

How is the fit compare to Arcteryx Rampart pants? I ordered the Patagonia RPS pants which seems to be more relaxed through the thigh than Rampart. Patagonia Quandry seems to have what Patagonia called slim fit, but how does it compare to Rampart around the waist, hip, thigh and leg?

>Rating:

Do these pants have any metal in them: zipper, rivets, buttons?

>Rating:

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.
