I love these pants. They're really comfortable while also looking nice-ish. I brought them on an Iceland trip and was looking forward to using them, but it was too cold (~40 degrees F), so they ended up just being used for airport travel. Hoping to get some more active use out of them in the future!
The thinnest of fabrics
I bought these pants for hiking, and to replace a great pair I had from another vendor. This had all the features of those pants. The fit on my athletic frame is fine. The features are good. But I was very surprised to see how sheer the fabric is. I have been using them in Spring weather, but they seem to be designed for Summer hiking where shorts ... Read Moreare not appropriate. In three weeks of wear, the brambles have pulled threads and the pants offer no protection from them. First items from Patagonia I have been disappointed with in a long time.
Great Travel Pant
These pants are a good weight for on the go travel. They are stretchy and comfortable and thick enough to be warm in damp weather but not too hot. I love the security of the zippered pockets, and they look good enough to wear all day and still go out to a nice dinner.
Wear these all the time
I used these to hike in Peru, wear them in gym, and go to bars. Point is they are a great pair of pants, very comfortable and versatile. Now have several pair and hope Patagonia doesn't mess them up and innovate something silly on the next iteration. Just add colors and keep them around.
Super Comfy and Tough
These pants are amazing. Bought a pair a few weeks ago, and they are so comfortable (like silk against the skin) and tough out in the hills (no scuffs or tears after a day of climbing and scrambling over granite and through brush in Colorado in the winter) that I just bought a second pair. Also they're great at work, look just fine for the off... Read Moreice even with all the pockets being zippered. New favorites for sure.
Comfy for clean trails
Feels really good. Got chewed up on my first hike through brushy non-trails. A shame.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review and we are incredibly sorry to hear about what happened to your pants. Please feel free to start your [repair](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at any time as we want to make sure these pants last you many more seasons to come.
Great everyday pant
Very light weight, stretchy, warmer than I thought and so great for Fall. It's so comfortable and easy I wear it pretty much every day. Really like the zip pockets. The only possible improvements would be a bigger/deeper pocket on the back; a strap opening for the leg pocket, instead of the zip; and more color options.
Love the Patagonia Altiva Trail Pants. I use them as a daily wear and find them to be light-weight, no wrinkles, stain-resistant, comfortable, flexible, secure, and easy to care for. My dislikes include that the Black is actually a Gray and that the fabric sheen comes off much too sporty (think track suit). I will order more.
Great fit. 32 inch waist, with the 31 inch inseam was perfect. I thought that I needed a 32 inch inseam, which is NOT available. Once I started wearing them, I now know that the Patagonia designers had the sizing correct. Plenty of pockets, and I appreciate the extra one on the thigh. And the back pockets have zippers, which provides that additiona... Read Morel security. Love the fact that the fabric dries quickly, since I rarely carry rain pants, and a rain jacket always drains onto your pants. My new favorite pants!
Good looking at the office
I purchased this after having one for a number of years. I also have the Alvia Light pant and the Altvia Alpine pant. My favourite is the Altvia Light version with an elastic waste and loose fit. I bought this one for work in an office environment and have not tested it on the trails. It seems a little flimsy for the trails so I got the Alpine pant... Read Mores which seem a little more robust. It would be a five star if I thought this would make a great trail pant as well, maybe I should try it and see.
Perfect trousers for casual
Perfect fit for slim physique. I wear these trousers for airline travel -- love that the pockets all have zippers so I don't lose anything getting in/out of seats -- and love the no-wrinkle, light weight fabric. Probably will wear them a lot more when "shorts season" ends.
First time out with the pants and just finished a 3 day 28 mile hike through the alpine, super light weight, but concerned about durability, worked great in windy conditions, they shed light rain. Not sure why they have zippered cuffs. Pockets are well placed. The only complaint is I always wear 31" waist, but these run big, and I don't c...

Response from PatagoniaSeptember 7, 2022
We appreciate your thoughtful and detailed feedback. The zipper at the ankle is to allow for fit over more bulky hiking boots, if those are worn. We're sorry to hear that the waist is running big. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you need to return. We'll be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/)!
Wore these for several days during an Alaskan fishing trip. Very comfy on the long plane ride to Alaska, then performed well in the rain and under hip waders. They are lightweight and great for warmer weather. Nice stretch both in the legs and waste. Great pants.
Love the Colors/Style
This is my second pair of these pants. I purchased believing yjey would the same as the first pair. Upon arrival, I noticed the inseam was much shorter than my first pair, and this is do to the cut bot being "long". While the pants fit, customer service informed me they no longer make this style "long." I still wear them, but t...

Hey Branden, thank you for the feedback. We recommend checking out our [Worn Wear](https://wornwear.patagonia.com/shop/search?q=altvia) website, where we sell lightly used gear from past seasons. We add to inventory everyday, so you might have some luck and find a long pair. If you're not seeing them now, definitely check back!
Love the zip pockets and cargo pocket on the front of the leg. At first the slim fit was a little strange to me as I usually wear loser fitting pants, but I'm a believer now. The fit is great, and they really move with you. So comfortable!! They are also very breathable and stay comfortable even in hot, humid weather. I love them!
Good travel pant
My only gripe here is that the pant legs could taper a bit more. Not even close to approaching bell-bottom territory, just a personal preference.

Hi Jake! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We really appreciate the feedback regarding the fit in the legs. We rely on comments like this from our customers to improve things for future seasons. We'll share this with our design crew.
Awesome for Backpacking! Need lighter colors
I just returned from 6 days backpacking in the High Sierras and made these my NEW go-to backpacking pants. They are comfy, stretchy and handle the dirt well. I am a sorta Ultra Lighter so these were the only pants I wore for 6 days/5 nights straight and they held up perfectly. Now I am wearing them days later, all cleaned up in the office. Love th... Read Moree zippers. Perfect placement. Love the general comfort and stretch. I was nervous about lack of belt / cinch, but honestly found a good lightweight backpacking belt to use w/ the pants and found I now prefer it this way. The button on the pants is solid and does not have the risk of popping off like competing pants. One major recommendation/request. PLEASE add lighter colors like Stone/Beige or similar. The pant fabric is touch heavier than ideal and so that w/ the color can run you hot. The Navy looks great, but did run VERY hot at times in the High Sierra's sun. Lighter colors would work better. More importantly, at present, they only run two colors for those w/ SHORT inseam (like me) Black and Navy - so doubly important if they add more / lighter colors to keep in mind us shorter folk. Overall really love these pants. Nice one Patagonia!

We really appreciate your feedback on all aspects of these pants and we hear you on the availability of lighter colors for the short version. Thanks for the review, Josh!
Great fitting pants
Feels like these pants were tailor fitted for me. Comfortable waist, flexible around knees. Zippered pockets keep everything safe and not slip out. The factories has a cooling sensation when the outdoors is warm. Real nice pants. Love the slim fit feature too, no baggy look but "neat" look.
Found one of my favorite pants... finally!
These pants are great. They are light, stretchy, slim fit, wrinkle-free. I love wearing them. I purchased them two weeks ago and I have worn them since then. They are not the most warm piece, but for springtime, summer evening and fall, they are great. Highly recommended!
Pants function great and the material that will alleviate overheating. The thigh pocket is kind of an obscure size that is too big for most phones or wallets, which will slosh in your pocket, also too small and delicate for something like a radio, gps, kestrel, etc. Overall, they're perfect for hot and mild days for most activities. The only... Read More strike against is that the price is outrageous for technical clothes.
Light weight breathable
The fabric is quite stretchy. As a result the stylish slim fit doesnt sacrifice mobility at all. The first time I wear the pants, as I am walking outside I suddenly feel like I am not wearing any pants as if its a dream. Then I realize the pants is the most breathable and lightweight pants I ever tried. A few times I have to go off trail and walk t... Read Morehrough shrubs. That doesnt leave any tear on the fabric.
I love these pants, and refuse to take them off! They are light, not tight, fit close, and they are relaxing to wear! Great all around pant, go to work, ride you townie home, and stop for a bouldering problem at the park en route to happy hour, no change of pant necessary!
I don't like skinny jeans. And not much in size selection. I would prefer a longer leg length. Sure this is a supply chain problem.

Hi Bryce! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disapointment with the fit. These specific pants are a slim fit, however we do offer quite a few hiking pants in regular fit. We'd encourage you to take a look at our [Quandary Pants](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-quandary-hiking-pants-regular/55181.html?dwvar_55181_color=FGE&cgid=mens-pants-jeans-hiking).
Fabric doesnt breathe and clings
While I like the light fabric, I found that it clings to my legs and also doesnt breathe as much as I had wanted it to. Keep in mind that the size I wear is not tight fitting, but a rather relaxed fit. So is the compromise between light fabric and stretch versus breathability and less clinging? Perhaps the pants will be more suitable in a cooler cl... Read Moreimate.

Light and Flexible
These pants stretch but always go back to true form and never get stretched out. They are super light and comfortable. The zipper gets stuck A LOT. Its been easy to fix, but annoying. Im usually a 32/33 length. I got the 33 waist and it says its a 31 length. So if thats true they run a little long because these fit me great.
Altvia trail pants
I like the pants. That being said, they are more like warmup soccer pants than hiking pants...The material is very thin and extremely stretchy, and very comfortable...The fit is very athletic, which I like. The pockets are awesome. If you put these pockets on the Quandary pants, you would have the best hiking pants ever made! Patagonia changed the ... Read Moreregular inseam on these pants from a 32 to a 31, so if you're 6 ft. you will be wearing high waters. All in all, I like the pants alot!
