Patagonia Women's Happy Hike Studio Pants

Durable, great mobility

I have a thicker waist and slimmer hips/thighs, so I love the wide elastic waist band. I worried that there might be too much fabric for my thighs, but its fine. DURABILITY- I hiked up and down Mt Katahdin in these pants. They were light weight and gave a ton of flexibility. Not once was I uncomfortable. There was a significant amount of time durin...

The ONLY parts that tore were the two lower inside corner stitchings of both rear pockets. Thats. It.

Happy Hiker

Love these pants. I wear them to work, on the trails, errands, and are the perfect pants and fit for travel. They are perfect for everyday wear. They fit like spandex/leggings around the waist, but are baggy in the hips, similar to a jogger with stretch. I am definitely in between a medium and large in Patagonia sizing. I sized down and scrunched u... Read Morep the bottoms on this pair. Love love love.

Affordable, easy, good fit

December 13, 2020

Comfy Waist

I was looking for a lightweight, pant that would work to drive across the country or go camping and this was it! The soft, stretchy waist with the wide band was so comfortable. I liked the relaxed fit, but could have also been fine with a size smaller, but they still work great. Very pleased.

Best. Pants. Ever.

Super comfortable and lightweight. Stretchy but loose, look great. Perfect for getting out in warm weather.

October 8, 2020

Perfect pant

Love the light fabric, love that it's 50 UPF. I bought them for hiking and I don't like tight hiking pants, these are roomy and perfect. The waist band is perfect for hiking, it's so soft. If you want tight fitting hiking pants maybe go a size smaller. I wear them at home to run errands, too. Will definitely buy more. For tall people... Read More, wear them like the model shown.

Runs large, but very comfy.

Sooo excited to see Patagonia finally making sizes for people who arent marathon runner yoga bodies. Bought these in an XXL and they are surprisingly big, particularly since Patagonia traditionally runs so small. I would say they are a normal (not athletic i.e. supper skinny) size 16-18.

Wanted to love but sizing was off

Bought these as a hybrid WFH/hang out/hiking pant. The simplicity and overall silhouette is perfect. Unfortunately the fit was off, Im usually a med in Patagonia but I was swimming in the M.

Favorite pants ever

These are my new favorite pants. They are durable, water resistant, and incredibly comfy. The only problem is Im going to have to buy more pairs now! Im hooked. They run a little large too, typically I would wear a small but an extra small fit me perfectly and arent too tight.

July 8, 2020

Size Down!

Normally a 12P; ordered XL because I usually find pants are too tight through the hip and rear. The XL was too large; returning for a L. Theyre a cropped pant; so the length was perfect for a shorty like me! The fabric and cut also worked well... just too big!

June 26, 2020

120 pound lady regular size 2

Not my favorite pants, they do run a little large. For someone that is ok with a little room it will be a perfect fit, but I like to feel my pants on my waist for my taste.

Good material but weird fit.

I followed the sizing chart recommendation and ordered a large, but the waistband is way too big. The legs fit nice enough and are a great length, so I think the fit is just not made for my hourglass figure.

Great Fabric, Wacky Fit

I really wanted to love these pants. First off the fabric is fantastic. I'm a big fan of durable yet pliable - of which, these meet both. The fit however is.... wacky. I have a size small in these pants and I really like them. They fit quite tight though and I wanted to size up because I loved them so much, but wanted the more "jogger&quo... Read Moret; feel. In Patagonia sizing, I normally fit in the mediums sometimes even going large to get the extra mobility. These however fit me like drop crotch pants. They don't fall completely off due to the waistband, but they certainly do sag. Maybe these will fit better on someone who doesn't have a stocky, athletic build, but for me, its a game of constantly pulling them up - with about a 2 inch gathering in the waistband they would fit perfectly. I gave them 4 starts because I think on the right body, with the right size they would be great. Because of the fit I am currently deciding if I will keep these pants for loungers, or if I will end up returning them and finding something that fits me better. Hope this helps!

Very comfortable, a little short

I wear these all the time and find the material and waist band to be very comfortable. They dry quickly and are breathable. A+ My only complaint is that they are a bit short.

Runs large

I am 5'3" and wear a size 4/small across most brands including Patagonia; however, I followed the advice of the other reviews and sized down from a Small to a X-Small.

Very comfy but snags!

I loved these pants from the beginning! Bought them for hiking but wear them around the house and climbing too. True to size! I rated 4 stars because I have 4-6 snags in the fabric. Slightly disappointed!

May 9, 2020

great length!

pants are always too long on me unless they have a "short" hem, so these are perfect! I'm 5'5". they hit above ankle and you can push them up because they have elastic on the bottom. I like the back zip pocket. Only complaint is the side pockets that are more fashion pockets than function - I have lost things because the po... Read Moreckets are not secure. A large heavy item might be okay because you would feel it fall out - but small items not so much.

Great travel pants

Love these so much, I just ordered 2 new pairs in different colors! Very comfortable and they fit me perfectly. I love that they don't wrinkle and dry fast. They worked really great on my vacation in Tasmania (lots of hiking).

February 21, 2020

Seems to Run Kind of Big

These are great pants, but they run kind of on the larger side. I'm usually an 8 or medium in pretty much everything, but I feel like I would probably be pulling these up all the time, since the waist runs big. I would suggest one size smaller than you normally wear. If they were true to size, they would be 5 stars all around.

February 20, 2020

Want to try the right size

These pants DEFINITELY run large, as they're baggy and almost falling off of someone who usually wears a M/L and ordered a M. Since S is out of stock, I probably will have to end up returning these and getting now exchange. I'm bummed, they seem great, but just way too big.

I ordered a large and needed to exchange to a medium. The replacement pants got lost in shipping and they promptly took care of matters and sent replacements out to me that fit perfectly.

Best Pants EVER

These pants are amazing. I wear them everywhere, they're built for anything. XS is perfect for me, it is a flattering, loose but cut right fit. 5'5", 125. I keep thinking I should buy another pair just in case something ever happened to mine, but they have stood up to every abuse I've thrown at them.

wrong size?

These pants fit very oddly on me. I think they would fit fine for a woman who has a really high waist. On me the crotch hung uncomfortably low. When I tried to roll the waist band to create a smaller rise the pants looked ridiculous. The waist is stretchy so really loose and feels like it will fall down when doing something active.

Great pants but front zipper pocket needed!

Super comfortable and versatile pants! The only thing I would hope for would be a front or side pocket with a zipper to hold my phone securely while hiking. Currently the only pocket with a zipper is one of the back pockets.

Strangely shaped

No not me, the pants. To be fair, I bought these to wear for everyday, not for a particular sport, so possibly they would work great for I don't know, rock climbing.

Beware of inseam length change for latest version

I have two pairs of these in medium and ordered a third recently because I wear them frequently. I have both the first iteration with open patch pockets, and the second with zippered pockets on the back. The new pair is about 1 inch shorter, same style with zippered back pockets, Spring 2019.

Lightweight and no bulk

For a pull-on pant, these have no bulk around the waist or hips. It's a very nice, lightweight hiking or casual pant. I like the fit on these pants. I'm pretty average build so the M is comfortable. Pretty shade of blue too.

Great, comfortable, all around outdoor pants

These are my go to pants for almost everything: hiking, climbing, school, work. The fabric dries very quickly (except for the waist band) as well which makes them great for camping trips. Patagonia if you are listening I have two suggestions about the waist band to make them even better: 1. I love the wide waist band, however a drawstring would improve this design as they tend to fall down overtime. 2. The different fabric of the waist band does not dry as fast as the leg material, which is annoying when you get wet and the legs dry quickly but then the band is still soaked!

Loving my HHSP

Perfect fit, comfortable material has give but remains snug to my body. I enjoy the extra pockets in the back. The waistband is extremely comfortable and stays put. These pants can be dressed up or down which is a bonus for me. Thanks Patagonia!

Nice improvements but miss the old cuffs

I have hiked hundreds of miles in the old old version of this pant. I am so happy with this new one (it is lighter and fits much better than the older one--the old one was very baggy).

Favorite Go-Anywhere Pant

They are stretchy, they have pockets, and can be worn for any activity you throw at them.

My go-to pant!

Can’t recommend these highly enough! Ten stars out of five! Pros: —Most comfortable pant ever. Waistband lays flat and smooth against skin. — versatile design: fabric has a nice drape and there’s a generous amount of wearing ease so it can function as an exercise pant or be dressed up with heels or ankle boots for a dressy event. I’ve worn them for... Read More yoga, trail runs and out to a fancy restaurant. —the size range works over about a 15-20 pound span. I lost weight over a few months and these spanned multiple sizes so I didn’t have to replace as often as if I were buying the numeric sizes. I did buy them in large, medium and small! —they work for petites. The elasticized cuff keeps them above the foot. I turn the cuff under if I want to eliminate the slightly harem-pant look; then they hang straight like a dress pant. —they work for cold weather. The fabric is thin, but the generous wearing ease means it’s easy to put a pair or two of long underwear under them. They pair with the cap air bottoms to make the coziest, most comfortable cold-weather set-up ever. Cons: Fabric isn’t very breathable. On a hot day the half-elastic cuff can be pushed up to cool the ankles, but it’s still pretty warm. —they stretch out with wearing. If they fit perfectly when you first put them on then they’re going to get a little baggy. They tighten up with a wash and dry but not to original snugness.

Baggy in the hips

The positives: right length (26 inches), light weight material with stretch, 4 good deep pockets, back one zipped, (all fit an iPhone8), and good length. Could improve: I bought an extra small but the hips/thighs are way too roomy. I’m 5’ & 103 lbs and the long pants were over all too big. Sad because the style was very cute. Returned.

Nice all around pants

These are very versatile pants, they are good for around town and also on the trail. I like the cut, they are ankle pants that can also be pulled up to your calves because of the stretch. The fabric is a nice medium weight with a finish that doesn’t seem to snag. The knit waist is so much nicer then strings to pull in the waist. They run true to si... Read Moreze. I get compliments on them and will be buying another pair.

Happy pants

I bought a Medium as I am 130 lbs and 5’4”. Really like these pants. However wish they were about 1” longer.

August 30, 2019

Good quality but ...

I really like the material , and the way it can be dressed up/down in different occasions. I ordered XS, it sits ok on waist line, and the length is fine, but the hip part is so wide that it looks like clown pants! I don't understand why ....

Out of the frying pan and into the office

I am a big fan of these pants. I own them in grayish black and stone blue. They are great for a hike, as intended, but they also double fabulously as office-appropriate joggers. Who can resist an elastic waistline?

August 29, 2019

Love these pants!

True to size, pull on pant. Nice weight fabric ..great length..washes well. Take these pants everywhere.....packs well. Wear for all outdoor activities as well as for lounging and chill times.

August 29, 2019

Great, versatile pants

These trousers go beautifully from trail to studio to dinner out. Perfect for travel as a result; quick-drying, easily cleaned, a zippered back pocket. I bought a second pair and feel ready to go anywhere, do anything. Fit is generous without slump. I am 5’8 and wear a medium.

August 23, 2019


I do not know why these pants needed an "updated" style, they were perfect the way they were. This new version is shorter compared to the older version, and the bottom back elastic does not work. If the idea is that they are more versatile and can be "pushed up" to serve as a capri pant, it does not work. It is too bulky and puf... Read Morefy, the elastic is uncomfortable, and it does not stay up (in the capri position) when active and moving! Thus when worn as a regular pant it is too short and I am 5'2"! The new material is lighter but compared to the original it is stiffer. The original material was almost silky and more versatile because it could be "dressed up" with the right top. I have 2 of these pants in the older version and have taken them traveling, used them for work, and casual everyday use . They were great for travel: light, easy to wash in the sink, and dried quickly on a hanger. I wish I would have bought more colors in the original style because this new updated version is not as versatile. This new version for very casual use only. I am keeping it because it was on sale. I would recommend it if you are new to these pants and have nothing to compare them to because they are light, well made, and would work for casual use.

Happy Hiker Pants

The BEST. So comfortable, practical, and versatile - work, home, hiking, sleeping, travel... you can’t go wrong! I missed out on the jumpsuit but these pants are pretty great.

August 22, 2019

Comfortable sport pants

I bought these pants for spring/fall fast walking and hiking. Size Large provide a comfortable fit…not skin tight…for my 5’2” 146 lb. body. For me, they hit at ankle but I can hike them up. Comfortable fabric. Lightweight for travel.

August 18, 2019

Awkward Fit

Crotch is so low in these pants if you are shorter. Just fit awkwardly and I did end up returning.

August 17, 2019

Awesome pants

These pants are fantastic - they are super comfortable, but are fitted enough that they’re still cute.

August 16, 2019


A great piece which washes well. Fits perfect.

August 15, 2019

Nice material

Great material, extremely comfortable. I’m 5’4” and the medium fits great everywhere except my waist it’s pretty loose. Small was too tight.

August 15, 2019

Excellent pants!

Perfect for backpacking, I love the soft yoga-like waist band, nothing I hate more than buckles or buttons digging into my skin under my pack's hip-belt. I love that they're tapered and don't hang long so they don't get muddy on wet trails. Definitely buying in more colors

Always Five Star

Great buying on line with just a phone call toco firm....really, a short phone call with a person answering right away.

My go-to pants

These pants are lightweight, comfortable, and roomy, with a little stretch. They have a flattering fit - loose, but not too loose, a comfortable/soft waist band, and are perfect for warm weather.

Great leggings

Went to Montana and my all the leggings I bought were great for the hikes! I could move around easy and comfortably.

August 15, 2019

Comfortable pant for multiple activities

As said, these pants do run on the large side, so consider sizing down. Overall they are extremely comfortable and versatile, from camping and hiking mountains in Maine to running errands, even working in the clinic, these pants go the distance in style!

August 15, 2019


Love, love, love them. So light and comfortable I sometimes think I have on pjs.

August 14, 2019

Bring back the old style

I bought these pants a few years ago and LOVE them, however the new style of cuffs is just not doing it for me. The bottom cuffs fit funny and feel awkward and just don’t look as flattering. Based on other reviews, it seems that I’m not alone in my dislike for the new design. Every season I check to see if Patagonia has returned to the old style of... Read More cuffs, but no such luck.

W's Happy Hike Studio Pants

I admired these pants worn by a friend of mine. They looked comfortable but also stylish. I was concerned how they'd fit me as I'm 5 feet. Somehow they work! I'm delighted. They're everything I want -- comfy, cozy, yet stylish. Great for traveling. Bought an XS and didn't need to hem them.

Comfortable and washable/dryer safe! Can dress up or dress down.

The Best Pants

I bought the W pant because It was the only style that fit me well. Little did I know they would become a favorite. I wore them endlessly and they always looked great I’m glad I got them in two colors. I love them!

August 10, 2019

Very nice pants

I really enjoy wearing these pants. I find them flattering and very comfortable. I have had only one issue with them. When I wash them, I seem to get some sort of white smudging on them. I can sort of wash it away, but it comes back again. I do not use fabric softener, so it cannot be that. The issue with smudging is why I did not give them 5 stars... Read More.

Perfect Travel Pant

Light weight, comfortable, stretchy travel pant that looks like it can handle anything you throw at it--hike, train, bike, whatever. Fits great, a tiny bit short but cute with flats or hiking shoes.

The old style is SO much better

I have a pair of the old style of these pants that I wear for everything - lounging, hiking, yoga, gardening, long flights.

Amazing pants

When I first received these pants I wasn’t really sure how I felt about them. I’m tall and the length is a bit strange but I decided to give them a chance and and keep them. These have become my favorite pants. They’re perfect for my office and also fantastic for the fishing boat and hiking. They’re quick drying, breathable and comfortable.

Runs WAY LARGE. Would be fab pant if they fit you.

Love the fabric and design, but these run HUGE. Will definitely have to return them, which is a bummer because they would be so good if they fit. Please make these in XXS!!

Fabric feels great, fit was off

I was really excited for these pants to arrive - they check a lot of boxes for my summer schedule/needs. But when I put them on, the crotch seemed to be ow and have too much fabric, kind of a pooch. They feel wonderful, but I ended up sending them back.

Super comfy and cute

I love these pants. Comfortable, durable, with great lines. I'm 5'3" and 125, with a round rear. I usually wear a S in Patagonia pants, but the XS has worked well here, though the length is just at my ankles so they aren't that cropped. Love them!

May 8, 2019

Love These!

I absolutely love these pants. I have a bigger butt and have a very hard time finding outdoor pants that fit me well – these are amazing! I rock climb a lot, hike, camp, etc and they work perfect for all activities.

May 8, 2019

Good all-around pants

Great semi-technical option for hiking, bicycling, cooler outdoor activities. Also fine for a casual office setting (a nice step up from sweat pants/yoga pants). Haven't tried them for yoga but would be good if you didn't want to bother changing before a class.

May 8, 2019

Most comfortable pants every made

These pants are amazingly comfortable and surprisingly durable. They do run a little bit large. Highly recommend as they are my around the house, doing chores, and going for easy hikes.

May 8, 2019


Really dig these pants! Lightweight, comfy and well made.

LOVE old version

I absolutely LOVE the old version of these pants, so I bought two more pairs last week, and was very disappointed that they changed the style (they have a different cuff, different pockets, sit differently on the waist/hips/butt, are baggier in the legs and are shorter). Please change these back to the old version.

These pants are awesome!

You can dress these up for work or just walk out the door for yoga, a hike, a bike ride, a sail, or whatever and have great sun coverage. I get so many compliments when I wear my grey pair of Happy Hikers. Size small is just fine for my 5’3, 125 frame. Enjoy!

April 18, 2019

Love these for camping and hiking

This is my second pair of the Happy Hike pants. I did prefer the first iteration of these as far as the ankle cuff goes. They run slightly big. I go between a small and a medium in Patagonia and opted for a small in these. Love the stone blue color!

April 13, 2019

April 11, 2019


I'm 5'3 about 125lbs and purchased size SM, these pants fit great! They run on the looser side so I could have sized down one, but I prefer them loose. I love wearing them hiking, biking or just wearing around (but wouldn't recommend for running). Great because they never wrinkle and are never staticy (an issue I've found with o...

I got the Stone Blue color which is close to navy but a bit brighter and lighter, perfect for wearing around because it's a nice color but still relatively neutral.

I searched for a really long time to find a pair of pants that I could wear for all different types of activities and settled on these.

Funny from the front.

I wanted to love these but the fit was weird— too baggy around the middle.

I looove these pants! Even more comfy then leggings, but more wearable then sweatpants! I wear them to do yoga, training, run, walking but are too thin for climbing! I usually size medium-large (mostly large in pants) and medium are perfect for me!!

Want the old style back!

I had two pair of the old style happy bike pants I bought a couple of years ago - and like many in these reviews, I bought the new style and really didn’t like the changes. Much less comfortable. I ended up returning them both. If they go back to the former style - I’ll buy many pairs!!!

Love these pants, but run big!

I am 5ft 7 and 120 lbs and got an XS. Usually, I am a S or M in pants, but these fit super big! I could have fit into the small for a more slouchy fit that rested lower on my waist, but the XS fits high waisted (which I love). The XS is also snugger and is more flattering than the S on me.

I went to purchase a fifth (yes fifth) pair of these pants today at Patagonia, Burlington VT. Up until today I would have encouraged ANYONE, any shape to buy these pants. How disappointed I am to see that you have changed everything! The cuff, the pockets. After years and years of purchasing pants elsewhere, after being a Patagonia-only for over ... Read Morea decade before...these pants made me believe in the brand again. Now, to find the *perfect* pants reengineered...and to find almost every shirt in “slim fit”, not “regular”. I can wear slim fit, but don’t want to as movement is restricted when shoulders in shirts are slim cut. How am I going to climb or ride when I don’t have full range of motion without busting a seam or showing a crack? Ah! Not sure what to do...your sizing through the years have just been wacky (not consistent, the 90’s were excellent, late 2010-12 was good and just recently I felt it shift back to stellar). But, the cuts on tops (especially) have really gotten weird over the past year. My husband even had to return HIS Christmas because of the “slim fit” issue.

I could seriously wear these pants every day of my life, in just about every aspect of it. Although I can't speak to the previous version, I absolutely love this version.

New style is no fun

I bought the older style in March with the wide bottom cuff and no back pockets. I always get compliments when I wear them. They are legit comfortable without lacking in style at all.

The new version showed up under the same exact name and they are nothing like the old pair. Two huge back pockets that stick out, and you can feel when sitting, also not flattering.

I don't have giant calves and there is no way I'm wearing these pushed up without cutting off circulation and buldging out my calf. Extremely disappointed in the new design and unable to find the old design anywhere. I sadly returned both of my new pairs. Bummed Patagonia designers.

Amazing pants

These pants are so comfortable and flattering. I get compliments on them constantly. Good for all occasions except maybe a black tie event. The only issue is that i normally wear a large with Patagonia and those were falling off me. I'd definitely recommend ordering a size down.

I have the old version of this pant and it's my favorite pair of sweatpants! But the new version with the elastic at the back of the leg is too short in the leg and too tight in the cuff.

Beware the update!

Originally got the previous version of these pants in May 2018 and I LOVED them.

Thankfully Patagonia is the best, so I will be exchanging them for mediums which will hopefully come soon because I already live in the one pair I own and I could use a little variety. I will agree with other recent reviewers that I like the previous ankle cuff better because of the look and comfort, but the updates cuff does make these pants appear a bit more professional, which is an benefit for some pseudo-professional use.

So Comfortable!

I just received my Happy Hike Studio pants and I wore them continually for 3 days they were so comfortable, light weight, breathable and everything I was looking for.

Was very excited when these arrived, and as far as quality goes they were great and lightweight without feeling like the first twig snag would rip them.

Got this pant when they first come out and I love them! This season I decided to purchase second pair and I am disappointed you changed the cuff and pockets on the pants. WHY?? They worked great the way they were. l. Please go back to the orginal style and offer more colors.

Very cute and comfortable, but a bit tight on the calves if you're tall and pockets can lose contents when sitting

I'm a big fan of these pants, but on me they're more like capris. I'm 5'8", about 130#, and went with size S. I initially ordered M, but they were too baggy in the bum.

I work as a PT in a clinic, and these pants look professional (or casual, you can dress them up/down) and they are extremely comfortable! I am 5'8" 145# and went with medium, but would have maybe gone with a small. I can't wait to get the other colors!

Love these!

These pants are great. Super comfy and flattering. Perfect pant to put on when I get home from work! They do run big - I'm 5'6" and 130 lbs, usually wear a medium, and the medium was huge. Small is perfect. I want them in every color...

Run Way Small

I'm 5'4 130 lbs, athletic body type and I usually wear size small pants, these are huge. They're long and baggy because the waist part is pretty loose.

Great pants

These pants are great. The fabric is light but durable. I just had a c-section and the wide waist band doesn’t bother my incision at all. I’m 5’9” and usually 150 lbs, but currently 172 2-weeks post baby and the large fits great.

My Favorite Pants

These pants were love at first try on. I’ve taken them backpacking in Glacier in Banff, wearing them from trail to town. I wear them to the office and work events. Yesterday I wore them while teaching in the field and then went to straight to hot yoga in them, no change necessary. I love the high(er) waist and appreciate that isn’t too tight. Hits ...

Thanks patagonia— you nailed this one!

Love these pants

I really like these pants. When I bought them I was surprised by how light weight they are so don't expect them to keep you really warm. But for warmer temps or around the house they are perfect. I'm 5'7" and 145 lbs and the medium was a good fit, but they are slightly loose.

Most versatile pants I own

I love everything about these. Yes, they run a little large. I haven’t worn them in hot hot weather yet, which concerns me a little, because I’m on the cusp of menopause and most synthetics make sweating that much worse. But it’s not the pants fault! The design is fabulous; skimming yet slim, great pockets, comfortable waist, and excellent ankle tr... Read Moreeatment. For a less workout look, I turn the elastic under one turn and wear with flats. I really want every color you make. Even my fashion-obsessed girls like these.

Great pants!

I love these so much. I have a pair from last season, and the slight changes to this seasons' pant make them much more versatile. The bottom cuffs look nicer to dress up a bit, the back pockets are better at holding items and the fit is more flattering. I'm an XS in these, and this year's version are just a tiny bit more snug, but st... Read Moreill oh so comfortable! I love that the fabric is stretchy, wrinkle resistant and provides sun protection. They are perfect for travel, climbing, casual wear and hiking. I've gotten so many compliments on these pants, and plan to buy more pairs. Wish there were more fun colors!!!

My go to hiking pant!

These pants are fantastic! They are very comfy, and have a variety of actually useful pockets- hard to come by on female outdoor gear. They do run a little big, I wish there was an XXS option, but I would still recommend these to any and everyone. I get compliments every time I wear them!

Great pants!

I just got these, so I haven't taken them out for a hike yet, but I already love them so much more than the ones I tend to wear when I hike. I got the Small and the waistband is so comfy - flat, wide, and doesn't dig in anywhere (I usually wear a 27 or 28 in pants/jeans). I'm 5'3", but I have "long" legs for my he... Read Moreight, so I found the length to be perfect on these - they hit me just at my ankle - and I like that it doesn't have elastic all the way around because that can be irritating to my skin for some reason. The hips are ever so slightly snug on me, but definitely not uncomfortable or tight. They give me a slim leg line, which I fully appreciate. Love these!

Not as good as original Happy Hike

I like these. But I LOVED the original Happy Hike pant. The new cuff on these make them less versatile. They also creep up at the calf. Please don’t stop making the original. The old Happy Hike could truly be worn in so many settings, serving as 3 pairs of pants in one. Work out, dress, and athleisure. This new pair is nice, but really only for ath... Read Moreleisure because they can’t be dressed up as easily and working out they get stretched/pulled up on the calf and have to be pulled down too often.

Wonderful Pant but... too big

I wanted to love these as they looked so great online but once they came and I tried them on they were way to big. I am a small/2 in all patagonia pants and shorts so that is what I ordered, however these were huge and they do not have any drawstring to tighten the waist. I am 5'7" and 125lbs. The length was great, however I do wish the e... Read Morelastic cuff was on both the front and the back. Oh well, will look for another product like this and order a size down.

prefer previous ankle cuff style

I prefer the original happy hike pants. The new ankle cuff on these changes the length and look a lot. I also think the back pockets were great with on zipper.

Comfortable Pants

The Good: Comfortable waistband, roomy (without being baggy) pant legs, great for long car/plane trips The Bad: I'm 5'3" and the small is just a smidge too long. If they were an inch shorter they'd be perfect for me. The Verdict: I'm going to keep them, but they probably won't be my go-to pants since they are a bit ... Read Morelong

Better than ever!

I own a pair of the first generation of these pants and ordered another pair because I like them so much. The new design is even better- I love the ankle stretch in the back, but a tailored cuff in the front. The waist is stretchy and soft. They have become one of my favorite pants ever! One caveat- they do run a bit large. I am 5' 4" and... Read More about 160 lbs and a medium fits me well. I would normally wear a large.

Would be 5-Stars If Fit Was True

Super comfortable pants. Seem like a dream, the sizing is just a bit off. I typically wear larges in all Patagonia tights (Centered, Pack-Out), but a large in these is too loose. Recommend sizing down. Pant size 10-12 5'5" ~145lbs

Happy hike studio pants...

Amazing pant! So comfortable! They are flattering and sleek, just skimming the leg. Not tight or snug anywhere but looks great on. Comfort my goal in any pant, and these fit the bill. I wear a 4-6 in pants and the small fits perfectly. I am 5'6" and weight 135.
