UPF Fabric

Lacking fur, feathers or scales, we humans have to think up clever ways to protect ourselves from the sun. Products with the UPF designation provide built-in sun protection that won’t wear off.

To achieve sun protection, Patagonia takes a varied approach, depending on the degree of protection desired and the fabric used. Elements of the strategy can range from yarn selection to fabric construction to the use of special finishes (especially for light colors which generally provide less protection).

Men's Quandary Pants - Long is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pants (2016) version I have the 2016 quandary pants and they are the best, I wear them every day! I can wear them for all of the outdoor sports i participate in. And for work! I recently tried on the latest and greatest quandary in a local Patagonia store and they fit all wrong, i like the zippared wallet pocket in back but, the above the knee area was too tight, and I'm a thin guy. If you guys had kept the same cut as 2016 the pants would be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits tall skinny guys like me I bought 2 pair of these pants 3 years ago and I have used them for absolutely everything. I wear them rock climb, skateboard, hike, and for going out. They still look and feel brand new. Go get you a pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great material Bought these in January and have worn them a few times. Very thin and breathable but still good to wear as casual work attire. Love the stretch. I'm not the biggest fan of the industrial green, so I'll probably get another pair in a different color. No comment on durability yet but I'm happy with the purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for canoeing I bought these expressly to take on a canoe trip, and they met my needs well. Lighweight, water repellent, and quick drying, they kept the sun off my legs, eyes off my genitals, and didn't smell terrible after 6 days of straight use. Would recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Couldn't be more disapointed with the changes I own 2 pairs of rock craft pants (the even better predecessor to these) and 3 pairs of the original Quandary pants. They are my only pants, and I couldn't be happier with the fit, comfort and durability for long hard days hiking and working outdoors. I noticed the new (industrial green) color, so ordered another pair, but am terribly disappointed. The new waist design, and eliminating both the articulated knees and gusseted crotch (despite still being described as features on the website) make for a pant that is tight in all the wrong places, and which hangs in a weird way. Also, what's with a drawstring? I'm returning them. Please go back to producing high performance pants.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Older version of Quandary was outstanding I previously purchased a pair of men's Quandary pants - they are terrific, fit great, wear well, I like the fabric, etc. They look good enough to wear to the office and they perform great as climbing or hiking pants, I can go straight from work to my outdoor activities. After wearing them for a while, I was ready to get rid my other pants and buy and wear only Quandarys. I ordered another pair and they were not nearly as good as my original. Apparently a re-design had occurred and the new version is just so-so or average. Here are my issues: "New" version of the Quandary has one less belt loop, so your belt is more likely to ride up above the waistband. Crotch gusset is gone, replaced by a linear panel of fabric that extends clear down the legs - not as much freedom of movement for climbing, doesn't look as good for office wear, and the leg fit is not as good, in addition, the leg design was changed so the subtle darts at the knees in the old version is gone and the legs just hang straight down on the new version. There is an odd, extraneous drawstring inside the pants below the belt line - the drawstring is stretchy, so wouldn't serve its purpose well, but it is unnecessary anyway, the only thing it does is hand out the fly if your not careful about making sure it is tucked in. Zippers on the pockets of the new version have loose, dangly zipper pulls which are annoying, don't look appropriate for office wear, and would snag up on the rock, or on brush (I removed them, no good). Again, the older version was superior, zipper pulls had trim little plastic tabs that stay folded out of the way. I suppose if I hadn't been spoiled by experiencing the wonderfulness of the old version of the Quandary, I would think that they were okay, but the new version just does not live up to that standard. I am a big fan of Patagonia and Patagonia products, sorry to have to give a poor word on this. Please, Patagonia, bring back the old version of the Quandary and I will be the first in line to buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice upgrade The addition of extra zippered pockets and other small improvements throughout the pants results in a perfect fit and excellent function. No complaints here.
