Patagonia Women's Happy Hike Studio Pants

Runs Large
October 16, 2021


Comfortable for sports, a casual dinner out, or to wear all day.

October 13, 2021

great fabric

I liked everything about this pant except the fit. It was way too baggie in the small and too tight in the x small. It was also very short.

October 13, 2021


Love these in pant form and shorts!

October 9, 2021

Great all around pant

I love these pants and could (and do) wear them for almost anything. The rise can be adjusted higher or lower since its stretchy. I like the higher rise which doesnt give muffin top. I like the positioning of the pockets; 2 big front and 2 in back, one big enough for phone, the other with zipper. Fabric is sturdy, but not too heavy. Cuffs at bottom...

Versatile & so comfortable

I bought these hoping they would work as an alternative to leggings for daily walks and hikes. They are so much more versatile than that. They are perfectly comfortable and stretchy for a hike but they are also clean lined, flattering, and don't look obviously like athletic wear. They are perfect for days when I want to hike and then run erran... Read Moreds etc but I have also grabbed them for days when I just want to be comfortable and look a bit more polished than jeans.

Very nice

I like these pants. Great length. Nice styling..why not other colors please!

October 1, 2021

Best pants ever!

Comfortable, wide waist band, flattering, 50 UPF make it the perfect pant for me. I have 3 colors and love them all!

September 30, 2021

Perfect Studio Pants

This is the second pair of these pants I have bought. They are so comfortable but look classy. My only objection is that I wish they were about 1 inch longer.

September 27, 2021

Exactly what I was looking for

The hiking pants I tried in the past were tight and constricting, and I knew I needed basically sweatpants that you can also camp and hike in. These are perfect. So lightweight and stretchy and water repellent and durable. I have done yoga in these just fine, and hiking in them was a tremendous improvement over hiking in jeans. Sooo comfy, I need t... Read Moreo buy another pair. I also think they *almost* look good enough for the office, though they are pretty thin so slight underwear lines can be an issue. Overall though, perfect and exactly what I needed.

September 26, 2021

Flexible Wear

These pants are great for hiking, yoga, and as casual work wear.

September 16, 2021

Comfy hiking pants

Found these pants while visiting the Patagonia store. They didn´t have my size so I decided to order them online. I love them. They´re super comfy and good looking.

September 10, 2021

Very confortable

Its thin and easy to move. It has gathers on the back of the ankles I like

September 3, 2021

light weight & water resistant

The fit is perfect! I am hard to fit and after buying the first pair I immediately ordered another pair.

September 2, 2021

I have 4 pairs of these.

I love them: never wrinkle, great for travel. I tried the XL after my first 3 pairs of loving the L, but XL is a bit too roomy. Try the lined pair for colder weather. Great dark grey color.

September 2, 2021

comfiest pants ever!

I love these pants! They are so comfortable and versatile.

September 2, 2021

Pandemic times need these pants

So its been a rough few years for us all. And these pants are perfect for it. Comfy like you are wearing sweat pants but presentable in public like you havent fallen into a funk. You will walk your dog in these pants and you will see how long you can go without washing them and lo and behold its a long time. But eventually you go out because you ... Read Morecant stay down forever. These pants are perfect for a hike. Comfortable and flexible. And after a long hike they can still look good. If I ever needed to go on the lamb these are the pants Id throw into the go bag. I said too much

September 1, 2021

My daily casual pants

These are my go-to pants since I retired. I have 3 pair. They are extremely comfortable and have a nice stretch yet hold their shape. I especially like the wide waistband. They are well made and still look great after many washings. The fabric is light and works well for warmer climates. I am 5'2", 108 pounds and purchased an XS. They are... Read More plenty roomy to use them as active pants. They hit just above my ankle although ideally I'd prefer them a few inches shorter.

September 1, 2021

Super Comfy

Love these pants for hiking. They are super comfy! They move well as I hike and the material allows brush to go right by. I have two suggestions. One, I wish they were a bit longer. My ankles tend to sunburn in these pants on a hike. Two, I think these pants would be great with built in underwear.

August 31, 2021

Great for the plane ride. Warm but not at all hot.

I can wear these pants out for dinner at a nice restaurant. They can be dressed up with a nice top and scarf.

August 21, 2021


These run a little large (barely noticeable), but they are the best product I purchased from Patagonia. I wear them all the time! Great for hikes when the weather might turn (particularly here in CO). So comfortable and lightweight. I especially love the soft & stretchy waistband. It's similar to their legging/tights material, without over... Read Morely restrictive. As I've said in a previous review, I prefer higher-waisted bottoms, and these are perfect for me! I'll probably end up getting another pair in a different color. Highly recommend. They've completely changed my hiking game.

August 14, 2021

Very comfortable

I love the happy hike studio pants. I wear them everywhere.

August 12, 2021


Love these pants! What cant they do. They pass as dress pants for work, I can hike, bike, and lounge in them. The back pockets are awesome. Overall, these pants are great! I wear them all summer so I dont have to put sunblock on my legs. They are lightweight and a great sun pant!

August 10, 2021

Does the trick

These pants are so comfortable I own 2 pairs. In the morning I do my walking around Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge or Westmoreland Park & sometimes I keep on wearing them all day. When we travel they stuff in a bag with ease. Love em'!

August 10, 2021

Love these pants! I have 3 colors!

Pants travel well and look nice even after hours of driving. Easy care!

August 4, 2021

Nice for warm weather

I like the fit, I can wear it all day so comfortable!

July 30, 2021

Very comfy!

These are great for hiking or lounging. Very stretchy. I'm 5'9" and weigh 140 and usually find Patagonia pants quite small and order up; but these mediums are pretty baggy and comfy on me.

July 27, 2021

Excellent comfort

The material and fit of these pants is terrific! True to size and very comfortable!

July 19, 2021

So Comfy!

I wore these pants for the first time this past weekend on a trip to the mountains - beyond comfortable, have just the right amount of stretch, and warm enough to wear on a cool evening sitting outside. They run a little big around the waist and do stretch a tad after wearing. I usually wear a L in Patagonia pants but the M fits perfectly.

July 17, 2021

Easy like Sunday morning

These pants are extremely comfortable & very versatile too. I use them to walk the dog, hang out around the house & last night wore them to see a play in the park. They also work well with hiking boots. Im thinking of buying a second pair.

July 16, 2021

Love the detail and comfort!

I purchased a M and on my 5'2" frame it is longer than what is shown, but I love them. It is actually a lightweight pant that I can wear out for a day or evening. I may even wear to work. The way they look on the website is much different than the way I wear them. Please more colors. :)

July 15, 2021

Super light and lovely to wear.....

I love these pants. They are so cool, air-wise and fit so well. The back pockets are wonderful for credit card and phone. One has a zipper. I have 3 pairs of them. The feel of the fabric is lovely. So glad I found them!!

July 15, 2021

lightweight, pull on and go

Most comfortable pant ever. I have 2 pair now.

July 15, 2021

Best pants ever

My partner got a pair of these and she loved them so much that I had to see for myself. Turns out they are amazing. So comfy. Perfect for working from home, dog walks, hitting the trail and lounging around the house. I think we have 8 pairs of these pants between us now. :)

July 12, 2021


I am amazed at how comfortable, versatile and well made these pants are! I especially like the stretch waist and nice fit. The fabric is comfortable and tough enough for workouts but lovely enough for everyday casual wear! And I love how the back pocket fits my phone. Quality versatile pants!

July 9, 2021


Very comfortable. Nice quality fabric. Waistband a bit too tall for me as I am a short person.

July 2, 2021

Amazingly comfortable

I'm 4'11" and 105 lbs. I got the blue grey XS on these studio pants and they fit perfectly! So happy with this purchase that I bought 2 more pairs, green and dark grey. They are super soft and so comfortable, love it that I can pull them up with no zipper or tie. Perfect to wear any time and any day!

June 25, 2021

Comfortable Pants

These pants are lightweight and very comfortable. Nice to wear in place of leggings during the summer which are hot to me.

June 10, 2021


These pants are amazing...I would wear them every day if I didn't have to wash them occassionally. I have an older version in a size up that were bought to be super roomy, and was so thrilled that the smaller size was perfect for outdoor adventure, and the leg cuff is super nice!

June 8, 2021

Love these pants

I love these pants. The waist is really comfortable and the legs are loose and airy. Great for cool to warm temps. Dries quick and repels stains. They do stretch out a bit so go down a size if you're between.

June 6, 2021


I needed a pair of pants to backpack 25ish mi into a canyon and these were perfect. They're extremely comfortable and they're quick drying and stretch enough to pull up to waddle through knee deep waters. They do slip a little and part of why they worked for me is because my pack clips over the waistband allowing for a makeshift belt. I w... Read Moreould appreciate something with more of a cinched waist but they didn't slip down enough for me to have to pull them up. They're a lot more flattering in person than they are in the pictures Patagonia posted. I purchased them in the ink blot color which is actually a really beautiful shade of black. The pockets are also pretty deep and the back pockets have zippers which were perfect for small items like chapstick. Overall, these are perfect for my backpacking needs and I can see myself lounging around the house in them as well.

June 1, 2021

If Only The Waist Fit

Have three of these (the lined ones) over a year now and I jut had to leave them in the closet. The body of the pants fits ok but the waist is way to big. It falls off and then allows the entire pants to sag with lots of material in the front. very unattractive. I had darts put in them but even that did not work because the material was so thick.... Read More So for over a year I kept them because I thought I ruined them and therefor they are not returnable. Had an idea to ask Patagonina to adjust waist but was told that option is not available but I could return. Really appreciate the customer service. Will return and get these XS because they are really nice pants !

May 25, 2021

Great for hiking - runs large!

These are great pants! If you ever wanted the fit and feel of joggers on your hike, but with the fabric of a more technical pant, these are for you. The waistband is super comfortable, the fit is slim (if you size down) but not tight like leggings, and they seem like they will hold up well. So far they seem to be relatively warm and able to keep a ... Read Morecold wind out. I haven't tried them on a hot day yet. I appreciate having 4 pockets, although the front pockets are a bit too shallow to hold a phone securely (especially with the smoothness of the fabric) and the back pockets are small. They do run large - I'm usually size ~10/12 or L in pants, and the L in the similarly-cut Hampi pants fits me well, but I had to size down to M in these (the L was obviously way too big).

May 14, 2021

Love these pants

So excited you are offering extended sizes! These pants are so comfortable and great for outdoor activities.

May 14, 2021

My Favorite Pants

These are by far the most comfortable pants I've ever owned. After having the black pair for a year, I ordered the other colors.

I noticed they get listed as "Runs Large" but I think they are true ... Read Moreto size - they are meant to be loose and are not intended to fit tightly.

Comfortable and smart

The pants look good and are comfortable. I can wear them out to dinner or on a hike. I love them.

Perfect jogger style pants

I am obsessed with these pants. I kept seeing a girl wear them at my climbing gym and I finally asked her about them. She raved about them and now I do too! I'm 5'3-5'4, 160 lbs, curvy, but athletic. With pants, I'm usually between a medium and a large. I got the medium and they fit perfectly - not tight and not baggy either. Al... Read Moreso, since I'm on the shorter side, the pant comes to my ankle, they're not cropped like on some of the models, but I prefer that. If you're unsure, size down!

Casual Wear for sure, but with a nicer top, a little more Casual

I love these pants. I just wore them with a nice sweater and jewelry and were comfortable and held the outfit together. With some pumps, I am glad to wear comfortable and nice looking clothes.

April 30, 2021


I am a gymnastics coach and cartwheeling in these pants is a dream! Super comfy and durable and I love having pockets

April 26, 2021

Magical Pants

These are my favorite hiking pants. They keep you magically cool when it's hot and yet also provide some warmth when it's windy. The knit waist band means they are great for travel as they are loose and comfortable. Lots of pockets, hold up well on long hikes.

April 23, 2021

BEAUTY, love these

Ok so basically perfect for climbing indoors + outdoors, dont snag, and super airy and comfy, wont get too hot in the summer! I got the Kale green as size XS

I am obsessed with these pants. They are so comfortable. Theyre the most comfortable pant I own. I bought every color. They are perfect. I cannot recommend them enough

Great design and fit! Love them! Ordered a second pair!

Loose waistband

At 5'4.5 and 125 pounds, I'm almost always a size small. However, these pants I had to return and go down a size to X-small because the waistband was so loose. Lots of extra material and immediately started to sag with my phone and keys in the pockets. X-small has a comfortably snug waistband and doesn't start to fall off my body wit...

They are very comfortable require easy care and can wear them anywhere casual .

I absolutely adore these pants

I am a fit 76 and I think these pants make me look younger and thinner and very fit. Well maybe not all that...but they are so cute and comfortable. I wear them to all my nine year old grand daughters events and she thinks I'm cool.

Super comfortable

Great looking pants that are super comfortable. Durable with soft comfortable fabric and lots of pockets make these pants perfect for hiking and casual wear.

SHOCKING! Too Big for me

I never thought I would say those words about something from Patagucci. I am an active women, 5'3, 200pd and never is there something that fits me because active women are only tall and thin!

Trust me when I say they are too big for my thighs. Love this pant and will probably get another pair in a Large. Keep thinking about us bigger, bad-a$$ women! We will buy!

Unlined Happy Hiking Pants

I tried the Lined Happy Hiking Pants and they fit me perfectly. Then I thought, why am I buying lined (hopefully warm) pants which don't make it down to my ankles? Brrr-rr, from my mid-shins on down! So I thought, try the Unlined Happy Hikers, thinking that these would be useful for warmer weather hiking, but found that the thighs were now too... Read More blousy. They kind of looked like riding pants, bulging out above the knees. Not a lot, but too much for me to want to wear them. Also, what do I have to do to get Patagonia to make pants that don't stop at mid-calf, but go all the way to your ankles? Please! I have to wear socks with these short pants, which looks stupid.

Response from Patagonia
March 31, 2021

Hi Catherine, we're so sorry that neither these nor the Lined Happy Hike Studio Pants worked for you. The shorter length works for and is preferred by some people but not others, which shows that having more length options could be beneficial to accommodate different heights. Thank you for this really valuable feedback, we've passed it along to our Design Team. You could consider trying out the [Tech Joggers](, though these are intended for Fly Fishing, they are a similar jogger cut, however, the inseam is 3" longer than on the Happy Hike Studio Pants.

Great for everyday!

Accurate fit but waist runs a tad big.

March 28, 2021

Best pants ever!

I absolutely love these pants. I am 5'4" and a chubby 155 - these pants are somehow a sleek fit without being too tight or too baggy. Comfortable and good looking. Easy care.

March 27, 2021

Cute style

I love this style and cut. Didnt give 5 stars because they seem to run short in length but long in the crotch. Based on many reviews that said these run huge, I ordered an XS and had to return. I am 54 120 lbs and always wear a small. Reviewers said to size down. That was a mistake for me. Shouldve stuck with my regular size small. These are very c...

Gaped at the back of the waistband

I wanted to like these, but the back of the waistband gaped, despite its being elasticized. The rest of the fit wasn't bad.

March 9, 2021

Every Day Pants

This is my third pair, one lined and two regular happy hikers. I wear them every day because they are just that comfortable. The tapered ankles distinguish them from other pants - they are good for hanging out at home, or going out. Perfect.

Good Looking

The Happy Hike Studio Pants are almost too nice to hike in. Lovely drape. I ordered a large so they would be comfy but they were a little sloppy, so I returned for the medium which looks way better.

Not the Best

I ordered these pants in the lined version in my normal size, a medium, but they were too big and fit really awkwardly.

I was so excited to receive these after reading reviews, however they were a HUGE fail for me, unfortunately. I am 5'4'' and about 145 lbs with an athletic build.

Super comfy!

Thank you Patagonia! As always a pleasure to shop with you. I had originally ordered these pants in size M and they were too large.

Too short

I loved the fabric and the style but the leg length was too short- would not be able to avoid poison ivy unless I had long socks on with my hiking boots.

Super comfortable

I already had the Happy Hike shorts and they became my every day summer clothing choice. With the weather getting cooler the Happy Hike Studio Pants were a no-brainer. Good looking, useful pockets, great fit, and the waist-band is comfort perfection.

I do love these pants....they are casual and are a great substitute for jeans to look a little nicer. My only complaint is the swishing (noise) the fabric makes....but, I understand this is how it is.

I absolutely LOVE your happy hike pants. Aptly named! Super comfy and classy looking. If you feel moved to send me a second complimentary Happy hike pants please do so. Or send me an email alert telling me about sale price.

comfortable and practical

The fabric is lightweight, has a very nice feel to it, and it hangs quite well. The cut is loose and extremely comfortable. For me, pockets are a must; these pants have well placed, ample size pockets.

Super Fab!

I love these pants! They look clean and nice all the time. Lightweight and stretchy so they're good for any activity. I like the waistband. It sits nicely on the perfect spot just below my natural waist. The band is stretchy yet comfortably compressing such that it holds in my fat pochu but doesn't squish and make a muffin top. The fabric... Read More is durable and breathable. The leg length is perfect fo my short legs. They are my favorites!

Happy Hiker

The medium is a little small and the large is a little big, but very comfortable nonetheless.

September 15, 2020

Very comfortable

These feel like pj's! I do wish I would have gotten an xs, they are big in the waist. I'm 5'4 and weigh 120. Otherwise, I love them!

September 12, 2020

Love these pants for hiking!

I ordered a size up from my typical size to get a looser fit which works well for me. The pants are light, with excellent stretch and so far tough enough on rock scrambles. I have used these for late summer and early fall hiking, camping, clamping, and casual use. Another great Patagonia product.

Very Comfortable

Bought these for my mother, she absolutely loves them! They are breathable and perfect for doing anything!

The crouch of the pants hang low making the pants feel weird

Favorite pants for everything

These are my favorite pants. I would say they run slightly large. The waist band is perfect, I dont find myself needing to adjust. I have this pant in the shorts style too. Both cuts are awesome. Just fantastic items. The fit works for me very well.

Runs very large

I like the design but had to return. Im not even sure an xs would fit? Im 53 and 115 lbs and was swimming in a small.

Hello Marnie, we're so sorry these ended up being too large. Our designs and fits are constantly being revised and customer's feedback is one of the contributing factors to these changes. We hope that we won't disappoint you in the future. Thanks for your review!

Great product but size down

I've tried joggers from a ton of brands at this point and this is one of my all time favorites - simple construction, silky stretch material, nice waistband. With that said, size down! I'm 5'9 140 athletic build and had to go down to an XS.

September 3, 2020

Runs One Size Too Big

Everything about the pants look and feel great. I am 5'3" with a thin frame. I typically wear an XS / 0 in Patagonia pants. Unfortunately, this particular style of pants runs one size too big and also is about 2 inches too long for me.

September 3, 2020

Fits OK

I ordered a large at first and it was huge so I ordered a small and the woman I spoke with was very helpful but told me probably going down two sizes was not a good idea, so I got a medium and a small as her suggestion was and the medium was also fairly large so I ended up keeping the small which I am enjoying, and returning the medium and the larg... Read Moree. However I am kind of disappointed that I still have not seen my refund for the large and medium that I sent back. I spoke to someone on August 31 for the second time and they said yes we did get your return, it was a little confusing apparently for her because the label to return was the one for the large but the first woman I spoke to told me I could put both in the same package. The person I spoke with on the 31st told me that you had received them but for some reason it takes 4 to 6 weeks for a return to show up on the card? I understand things are backed up but this seems like an unusually long amount of time to wait for a refund? So my review is: pants are pretty great but very disappointed in the refund time. I am a customer of yours as you can see and most everything has worked out well in the past. Hopefully this will be cleared up shortly.

Size down

Im 5 ft 5 in 125lb normal build - not muscular ordered a small but they were too large around the waist, not to the point of falling down but I felt like they were loose and would possibly get stretched as the day progressed. Swapped them for an XS and they fit great. They arnt hot pants that are extremely complementing, but perfect loose fit comfy... Read More pants for hiking/plane rides.

My favorite pants

I really like the fabric and the fit of these pants. I have a relatively short inseam, and they come to my ankle. Comfy waist and no wrinkles. Great travel pants.

September 1, 2020

Nice pants

These pants are pretty comfy. Im 5-2 and about 120lbs. I bought the small, and they fit ok. They are full length pants on me. They are a little loose in the waist but a think the xs would be too tight in the hips.

August 30, 2020

These pants are amazing

I love the fit, material and cut of these pants. They are loose fitting in the legs but perfect in the waist which I appreciate.

Comfortable joggers

These pants are a bit roomier and more relaxed fit than most of my other Patagonia pants. The material is very breathable and comfortable. Great for around the house.

Great All Around Pants

Love these, so comfortable. I wear all day and during the course of the day might hike, ride my bike, do yoga, or do nothing. I have purchased 3 pair.

Comfortable but not durable

Pants run large and are very loose fitting. Comfortable and move with you well. The stitching on the front pocket ripped out after the first time I wore them. Would not recommend.

My absolute favorite pant. I actually wear these to work at my office more often than not. They don't look overly sporty and can be dressed up with a nice shirt and heel.

Read Morem down with chacos and looked great too. These do run slightly large - I'm 8/10 in jeans and the M fits a little loose in the thighs/waist but I actually prefer it. Material has a little stretch as well. I also love the high waist made of super soft fabric. The pockets sit well on the hips and are very convenient. I have the cobalt blue (brighter blue, past season) and forge grey colors - gorgeous and versatile. Please make more colors! Maybe eggplant? Maroon? Forest green? Rust orange? (I clearly have autumn on the brain!) Thank you Patagonia for this staple item!

I love the material these pants are made of. They are perfect for hot days, hiking or doing yard work. My only issue is that they are huge! I'm petite, 4'11" 95lbs and I'm swimming in the XS. As much as I love them I can't wear them off my property because they are so baggy. Please make xxs in these and the happy hike short... Read Mores! Most comfy pants ever for pregnancy too!

Stretchy and cozy and flattering

I am hiking the PCT (OR and WA) right now and I wear these pants I love them. They protect my legs from mosquitoes, the sun, and snags. They were just washed for the first time in weeks and look like new. I get compliments on the slightly oversized, comfy fit from fellow hikers and can wear them running around town with most dirt in... Read Morevisible. I have even slept in them when I am too tired to change! I too wanted hiking pants without any buttons or zippers or ties to rub underneath my pack hip belt and these fit the bill 100 percent.

I absolutely LOVE these pants. They fit perfectly and are RIDICULOUSLY comfortable. I have three pairs!

August 2, 2020

Comfort & Style

These pants are just so comfortable. They are my go-to hiking pant as I really hate buttons/ snaps/ zippers & ties on my pants while wearing a hip belt. The waist band has enough grip where it doesn't fall down (yet - we'll see if it stretches out, but I have hope!), and I love that it is more high rise. I'm 5'4" and th... Read Moree hem goes down to my ankles, unlike the model shown. Short ladies, this looks nice as a slim leg trouser with the jogger touch on the backside. Front pockets hold my iPhone fine, but I wouldn't trust them to keep the phone in for higher impact activities. They're super breathable - I don't get swampy crotch during my hikes with them, which is the true test of breathability for me! I've recommended these pants to multiple customers and everyone really seems to like them in store!

Love these pants

I've had these pants for a few years so I'm not sure if there have been updates to the pant since I purchased but I'm obsessed with them! I wear them all the time- they dry quickly so are great for kayaking and canoeing. They do run big but I personally like the baggie look better than the way they are tight on the model so it works ... Read Moreout better for me (I'm 5'3 106lbs). Also because they are black, baggy, look nicer than sweat pants, and wash extremely well they are good period pants. They get a little hot for me to work out in at the gym, so I only wear them to work out if I'm bloated and not in the mood to put on tight pants. I've washed and worn the hell out of these over the last few years and they've held up perfectly.

Almost Best Everyday Pants

These pants are great. Super comfortable and cute. I wear them in black a lot (to work, around town, out on the town, traveling, etc.). But they tend to slip down when there's something heavier in a pocket (like a phone). Be great if the next style upgrade had a draw string feature.

Strange Fit

my first pair of baggies this summer (size small) and I'm living in them almost everyday. And I wanted to love these pants too, but they are so strange. I am 130 lbs, 5'6". I have a small waist and bigger hips, hourglass. I got the small first, it seemed really baggy and the waist was way too big. But the material is great and I ca... Read Moren see myself hiking and climbing in them. I switched to the XS and they are tight. I mean, I could wear them, and I might keep them, I can't decide. But now the waist fits great while the butt and thigh area are really hugging me, and I'm not a big person. I'm not sure who these are made for but it's not me and looks like not 75% of the other people that bought them either. I still love them and might keep them, but if you know of a better hike/climb pant that is comfortable, I would go that way. I was just looking for something more comfortable than tight, performance leggings.

In love!

A lot of Patagonia clothes run just a bit small for me- I am an apple shaped middle age mom but I love to hike and I love the style, quality and mission of Patagonia products. I ordered these pants after reading reviews that they run large- and they do- but in a perfect way. I am so excited about these pants. As an apple girl its hard to find stuff...

I hardly ever write reviews but these pants are perfect in every way and I felt compelled to write a review. How often do you get clothing to fit perfectly, wear beautifully, and look slick?

Too large - please make XXS

The XS in this pants is more like a SM or even M in other pants. Plus, they stretch out very easily. I have purchased two iterations of these and have been disappointed because they get baggy in the butt after 20 minutes. Please make a smaller size!

Not for actual hiking

These pants are stylish and comfortable. They are not hiking pants. They tore first time out on the trail. The fabric is too delicate for hiking and after 1 wear they look too worn out for casual wear. This is the first Patagonia product that has ever disappointed.

good quality pant

I wish Patagonia had XXS happy hike studio pant.The XS was a bit too loose on me. I want to keep the pant but it was loose on the waist. Sadly have to let go.

May 26, 2020


I absolutely love these pants. I wear them all the time: to chill, run, bike, sleep, hike. Even though they are lined, they feel cool. I've worn them on mountain and road bike rides in 75-85 degree heat and didn't feel too hot. I have three pairs and am seriously considering a 4th!

Super comfy, light-weight pants

I'm 5'6"-5'7", 130 lb and the xs fits me well. I could probably wear a small just fine but I wanted them to be a little more fitted.

Not what I expected

My husband bought these pants for me and I was looking forward to their arrival.

Imagine my surprise and disappointment when I tried on these adorable pants and discovered that the small would accomodate almost 1 1/2 of me! Acco... Read Morerding to the online description of these pants, there is a hidden elastic drawcord, which would have helped the fit. Neither my husband nor I could find a drawcord of any kind. I really wanted to love these pants. I do love the fabric and the style, but they are not as advertised so I cannot give them more than 3 stars.
