Venga Rock Pant

If you ever find yourself climbing in Mallorca, Spain, and people are yelling, "Venga," at you over and over, it isn't because you're wearing the Patagonia Women's Venga Rock Pant—it's because they want you to send. The Venga's organic cotton stretch blend breathes, keeps you cool, and offers a full range of motion, so you can do just that. Its climbing-specific fit includes an articulated pattern, darted knees, and a gusseted crotch so you can drop-knee, high-step, and stem your way to the top. 

  • Exceptionally lightweight and durable pants for hikes and climbs
  • Organic cotton blend has spandex for stretch when you need it
  • Articulated pattern and gusseted crotch opens up mobility
  • Adjustable OppoSet waistband customizes your fit
  • Multiple zippered pockets create tons of storage options

I generally trust Patagonia to make quality stuff, but these did not meet expectations. The fabric is soft and breathable and light, and the construction seems pretty solid. I was excited about the gusseted crotch design. They fit ok in the legs but were a struggle to get over the hips. Okay fine, not built for my body (even though my hips are on the narrower side of average...). But the major issue for me was that they had exceptionally little give. I couldn't bend my legs more than 90 degrees at the hip, which is pretty useless for outdoor sports, and sitting down isn't comfortable. I don't think sizing up would help unless I sized up enough to swim in them. I'm not sure how this could have been designed for rock climbing. Also, aesthetic note, the 'smokey violet' color is a lot paler in person than it was on my screen.

Like others recommended, I sized up -- but it wasn't enough. They're fine in the legs, but the waist is way too tight for this new momma - even really sized up from other clothes I'm wearing these days.

I ordered 1 size up so they’d be a little baggy in the hip/thigh for movement while climbing or hiking that I could then adjust at the waist. But no, they are way too small. I would need to order at least 2 sizes up, and I don’t want to go through the hassle in case I get it wrong a second time so I’ll be returning. They seem well-made and comfortable, if they were to fit properly.

This is my 3rd pair of Venga rock pants. The first two did not stand up to climbing. I purchased these because they were on sale. I also selected a size larger than my previous Vengas just to have a baggier fit. These were WAY TOO SMALL! Thinking I was crazy, I held them up to my size 2 vengas and found that these are actually smaller. Very disappointing considering Patagonia is a company very vocal about the quality of their goods. These are going back.

The style and material are great. Unfortunately there is no stretch to the waist/thigh area. Not practical for hiking and/or outdoor activity.

I've bought a bunch of different pairs of vengas over the years - I've worn the hell out of the first three, am busting through both knees - they're worn 2-3 times a week in the gym and then outdoors for every trip I take. But I gave the fourth away to a friend (they stretched out super big) and returned the final pair (the thighs were crazy tight with no give) - the fabric changes from year to year and color to color - the original was a cotton-heavy blend which stretched and wore well - the more recent years appear to be a blend with less cotton that doesn't stretch at all. Again, I love my first couple of pairs, but I am holding out hope that the fabric will be swapped back for better stuff.

I bought these in the size 4 thinking they'd fit my normal size. I couldn't get them over my hips and once I finally did it felt like they would rip if I bent over. So I wound up returning and then reordering size 6 and 8. The 6 is also small and the 8 fits, but is tight on the thighs. This leaves no stretch room, which isn't comfortable for hiking or any physical activities. Such a funky design. I don't even have big muscles, just your average/small girl. Very disappointed.

These are my go to pants, not only casually but for some climbing as well! They are super comfy and I love the green color! They are not super tight which I like, I did try the size 0 first and they were way too tight around my hips so I got the size 2 and they are a much better fit!

Love love love these pants. For a girl who is extra small (5'' 100 lbs) finding a nice pair of climbing pants that actually fit properly is pretty much impossible...but these pants fit so nice in all aspects. Yes they do run a bit big waist wise but that is why they have that belt fit into the pants that work great so far. They are longer as well but i usually roll my pants up anyways. Other then that i love these pants, they are so comfortable, fit my body, and i could literally wear them everyday!

Not sure why these are called rock pants... they have pretty much no stretch (i.e. mobility).

What size did you purchase? Thank you

I wear the crap outta these pants. I have a size 8 and 6 and the 6 fits better, 8 is still loose with the belt cinched and tied in a knot to keep it there. The gusseted crotch is perfect for mobility in climbing and the stretch is everything I want it to be. The length is short, which is usually a problem for my 5'9", but I usually roll up the bottoms when I climb anyway, and just deal with the slight high-waters when I wear them out. They're too comfy not to wear all the time. The pockets are actually big enough to hold real-sized items, which is the most annoying part about women's pants to me, and the thigh pocket fits a phone nicely as well. I only say it runs large because the description states it's a slim fit. I'd say it's fairly true to size for a relaxed fit

She ordered these the other day and they look great on her, a little long in the sleeve but not super long as she is petite.

Wore these for a solid day of climbing, and they're really comfortable and light. They also have a ton of stretch, and as others have commented, run large everywhere, but especially in the waist. I would recommend going a size small when ordering these- I'm usually between a 6 and an 8, and the 6s that I ordered are really comfy but they fit a bit like scrubs, and I have the waist tab tightened all the way. Not really a problem for climbing in a harness, but might be annoying for bouldering.

I can’t remember when I got these pants, but they might be an older model and since been changed. I am disappointed in the fit and quality though. I am 5’10”, 145lb, long arms/ legs, average torso and I got a size 6 (my usual Patagonia size) which fit well only in the waist. Usual sizes: Carhartt 4 long, Prana 4, American Eagle 2/4 The crotch area is weird and the length is too short. After wearing them a few times at the crag, I got over the length and fit because wearing them under a harness and rolling the ends up a little alleviated any previous fit issues. However, after taking them up a multi pitch climb in Red Rock, they came back with a lot of abrasion and were worn through on the knee. I know I wasn’t the easiest on them but come on, they lasted 4 or 5 wears. I will continue to wear them out but they aren’t my first pick when it comes to grabbing pants for climbing.

Since purchasing, I've climbed and worked out at the gym with these and I love them! Breathable and stretchy, but also cool and casual looking enough for me to wear them everyday. The 6 fits my thighs and butt perfectly, but the waist stretches out so quickly I have to wear a belt.

These pants are a durable material and I really wanted to like them. However, just as a personal preference, I like my pants to sit on my hips without squeezing. Although he pants fit right, the waistline is just a little tighter which I dont like. The Prana pants as a comparison have a looser waistline so they sit perfectly at the waist without a squeeze at the top. They also have a slimmer leg than the Prana.

What is the inseam?

Hi Lynn! Thanks for your question! The inseam is dependent on size. Be on the lookout from an email from me (dbernstein@backcountry.com) and we can discuss further. :)
