Fit differs between colors

I bought a 27 in both 'pelican'/khaki and 'wine' color. Fit was totally different between the two, the khaki was fitted but the wine was looser fit and the fabric seemed to become more baggy during the day. The belt loops tore through after about a year of use on the khaki, even after I sent in for repair, a hole appeared in the... Read More same place within a month. Overall I like the fit and quality but it seems to be inconsistent.

Favorite winter pants

These pants are my winter every day go to. They fit like a favorite pair of jeans after wearing them once or twice. I love them so much I bought another pair.

Comfortable and can be dressy

Perfectly fitting cords. Soft and comfortable. Casual or dressy

Super Warm and soft

Love these pants. A sales guy had on pants like these and I said I want pants like you have. He found me the perfect pair. I wear them daily. They have not warn out. Getting a new color for fun and in case these wear out someday. Excellent pants. Would like more colors to choose from. Thank you.

Different fit and quality from past versions

I've had these pants from previous years (probably 2017-2019), and they were always soft, slightly stretchy, and the size 26 fit perfectly for 35.5" (with fluctuation) hips and cyclist's thighs. This year's version (purchased 9/2020) are not as perfect as previous: 1) the cord material isn't as soft, thick, or stretchy, 2) ... Read Morethe hips and thighs feels more straight/narrow and, 3) the waist and ankles are wider. The fit has no curves whatsoever, and with less stretch, it is less forgiving to movement. I only wear these with tunics or long shirts because of the fit, but I wish I had returned them earlier.

Oh so soft and thick

I was looking at buying corduroy pants for leisure and work from several different outdoor companies. A friend with whom I can share clothes had Patagonia cords from over five years ago and she was urging me to try them on. I did. They were double as thick as other brands and much softer, more luxurious feeling. I bought these hoping they were of s... Read Moreimilar hand feel and quality. I love them, they fit me perfectly. I bought a 28. I have a small waist and wider hips, a butt and moderately muscled thighs. I am a fit 55 130 pounds.

Great color, not for women with curves

This pant has absolutely zero room in the derriere or thighs. I'm 124# and fit comfortably in 27/4 pants from all the brands. These were SO TIGHT I could barely peel them past my thighs and there was no buttoning them. They have stretch but the cut is not accommodating. I returned them and got 28; even these are t-i-g-h-t. I had 29 shipped out... Read More and those are tight in the thigh yet loose at the waist and below the knee! Very aggravating fit for what should be an adorable classic pant.

My new favorite pants!

I found a pair of these in the brown color at a thrift store and liked them so much I bought two more pairs in navy and olive. The corduroy is so soft, and the colors go with everything.

Too low cut

Hi Patagonia! I love how these pants fit...I have a curvy butt and hips...but the low rise on these is just silly. What gal who is active wants a low-rise? I've bought three pairs in the past because they fit my legs and hips so well (got them for casual and hiking) but...until you make a higher rise I can't repurchase.

So comfy, so fun 10-outta-10

Friends, these are great. I'm tiny and nothing ever fits. These fit and that's a miracle. I'm like 5'3-ish and 108lbs....and they aren't super baggy on me like every other pant ever....and I can still bend. I do wish the pockets were a bit deeper. But it's not gonna stop me from considering a second pair. Thanks Patago... Read Morenia.

Runs two sizes small

I have Patagonia pants I love from two years ago in size 27 (Im usually a 26 or 27 in jeans, so these were running on the small side but within the margin of normal). After reading that this batch was running small, I ordered them in 28 and could BARELY get them fastened and could never have worn them WAY too small. Im not even sure a 29 would have... Read More been big enough. Had the same problem with another style of Patagonia cords this year. I dont care for vanitys sake, but inconsistent sizing is just not a good use of time, money and the carbon waste of shipping & returns.

Love the pants, but not great construction

I bought a pair of these last year and within 6 months the fabric had worn through in the butt. I kept wearing them, as I really like the pants! But alas about 1 year post-purchase it's time to retire them. There are holes at each of the pockets corners and any extra pressure on a pocket or seam leads to further tearing. While I like the feel ... Read Moreof the stretchy fabric, it does not seem to be very strong. I wore these as around the house/city pants mainly. So it's not like I was doing anything extreme to cause this. I felt like the fit was good, contrary to other reviewers, I usually wear a 6-8 and actually found the 28 to be a little loose at the waist. I have a fairly thin frame however. Despite the issues, I am going to repurchase now that these are on sale to see if perhaps a different color holds up better. I originally purchased bence brown. If not, it's pretty wasteful that a pair of pants can't last more than one year. I will try to patch the pair I have to keep them in the rotation, but at this point it's probably futile.

Yep, too small

Usually I disregard reviews of "too small" as most of the smallest size Patagonia items fit great. Not this time. Could barely get them on. I still rated fairly high, however, because they are good quality, and look great. Will be returning them, unfortunately.

August 21, 2020

Too Small - dissapointing

I read previous reviews and order a size up. Well, there are too small. Returning... Too bad cause I love the color and the quality is very nice.

June 26, 2020


I originally ordered these in a size 24, but they ran small near my thighs and I could barely button them. Ive always bought clothes in petite. I love corduroy so returned them and ordered them in a size 25. I was so excited to try them on, but they also dont fit and still too small!

Strange Fit

I was excited to receive these pants until I tried them on and found them to be too small in the waist and hip areas and way too long in the length. I've never had trouble with sizing before now. Disappointed in the quality, as well.

Love it

Love it. Looks good and very warm. Buy size 28 because some comments pretend the fitting was small. It was a mistake. I should have buy my usual size 27.

February 14, 2020

Warm pants

These are very warm pants. The reason I did not give 5 stars is because they sit very low at the waist and sometimes they don´t feel comfortable. Also I was disappointed they did not make them in short sizes.

February 7, 2020

3-Season Favorites

I own these pants in four colors, plus a spare of my favorite for when they wear out. I am 5'3", 130#, pear shape. The size 29 Short is absolutely perfect. I can't really say whether these run large or small. I usually wear a 6-8, and these aren't numbered like that. They are my go-to pants for casual wear and work. There is jus... Read Moret enough stretch for real comfort for full movement. The blue faded just a bit after the first washing, giving them a softer appearance. I have already recommended these pants to a co-worker who was admiring the warm Bence Brown color.

January 4, 2020

Vanity Sizing

I usually wear a 29 or size 8 in many other brands. I tried on the size 30/size 10 in these corduroy pants at the Patagonia store. I was THREE inches away from being able to button the size 30. Please Patagonia, stop vanity sizing and excluding women who wear anything larger than a size 4. Please make pants that will fit a diverse world!

Great fit

I wasn’t sure about the fit of these cords after reading reviews, but I wanted to try them out because of a comment about the low rise. I prefer a low rise and these pants have it right.

Best corduroys

I own 2 pairs of this style in 2 different colors. Slim fit without being too tight. Very comfortable waist band that doesn’t squeeze me or ride down at the back when bending or squatting. Nice material with a touch of give and does not become baggy at the knees or bottom after a wearing.

I’m 5’3”, 105lbs & wear a 25 in all my jeans & pants. These run super small! I could barely button them & the construct all throughout the hips felt like it was crushing my pelvis.

Very Low Rise, but super comfy!

This are super great cords, however very low rise. Other than a little too low for my liking, everything else about these are awesome! The length is perfect (I'm 5'7") and the fit in the hip and leg is great! I just would prefer a little higher rise.

December 4, 2019


These jeans were returned. I hoped that they would fit because I loved the color and fabric, but they run very small, much smaller than I usually wear, and they have a very low rise.

November 23, 2019

Excellent fit & quality!

This was my first pair of the fitted cords. I love Patagonia corduroys and wear the more relaxed, straight leg fit nearly every day. They are so versatile, warm, and comfortable. I decided to try a fitted pair to add some variation to my wardrobe and to have a pair I could dress up a little more. I originally bought the size 25 because my straight ...

Great Pants! But Sizing Could Be Adjusted

I was looking for a flattering pair of cords and finally landed on these. I will say, they're insanely comfortable and flattering! I wear them to work frequently (business casual office environment) and I've also worn them to climb in. I find them very comfortable for climbing, plenty of stretch (in my opinion). They don't slide down... Read More in the back to show my butt, which is obviously a minimum requirement for climbing pants. I will note, I am 5'6" 145lb, athletic build with a bit of squish. I ordered these in a 28, however I think a 29 would've given me a more relaxed fit. The 28s are snug when i put them on, not like, muffin top snug, but fit pretty perfectly. I got a bit of a more relaxed fit by just not washing them for a week and wearing them until they stretched out. They do have a bit more of a straighter cut in the hip/waist, so I worry the 29 would've been too loose in the waist/hip. I have wide hips and a lot of booty, but still feel like the 28 is okay. It does seem that Patagonia is missing the mark with their pant sizing. I almost always need to size up a size or two from my usual size 27 to wear their pants. Anyway, will probably order more colors because I really love these!

Quality and comfort = love!!

These cords take me back to when I was in college. They are comfy the way cords are meant to be . I bought these in the Sisu brown ( color in picture is accurate) to pair with a fjord flannel and it is a great looking outfit . I am 5'2" , 120 pounds , athletic build .

The corduroy fabric is of

The corduroy fabric is of a good quality - soft and of a nice thickness. I wish the waistline was about 1" higher, and that the legs were a little more fitted. I tried the 29" waist size, and the legs were a little more fitted which I liked, but the waist a bit too tight. I like the color.

November 12, 2019

Great Fit, Awesome Material; DEEPER POCKETS

The fit was extremely flattering. I am not a fan of skinny pants, but the style shaped my legs quite nicely. The material is durable, but also wicked stains: I spilled red juice on my pants, and when I went to wash it off, I noticed the liquid had simply clumped and all I had to do was wipe away the stain. I had never seen a pair of casual pants do... Read More that before. One only negative I will add... ADD DEEPER POCKETS.

nice pants

I ordered these pants in the same size (31) as the slim jeans and I could not get them buttoned up, although the jeans were fine. I returned them easily and ordered the next size up and they were perfect. Still the length is a little long, need to be cuffed. tThe fabric is nice and soft.

So comfy!

These pants are awesome. So comfortable and the fit is perfect! I am 5'8" with about a 32-33" inseam, and a big strong booty and thighs, so many times I will find pants that fit or are loose in the waist, but are tight in the butt and thighs. I wear a size 12 typically and many times they are also slightly short. But these cords were... Read More a perfect fit. Great fit on the waist and not too tight on the butt and thighs. Also, they were nice and long too. They're great for work/ casual. These pants are my new favorite for sure.

October 17, 2019

Great Pants sized up

After reading all the reviews and purchasing Patagnonia pants previously, I went with the advice of sizing up. I went up from my normal size 27 to a 29 and super glad I did. They fit perfect. Love the color and the feel of these. They have just the right amount of stretch and are dressy enough for office casual when required.

These are not for the majority of outdoor enthusiast body types

I've been wearing Patagonia cords for years. I LOVE them. They are my holiday presents every year. But two years ago, Patagonia started making these slim fit. This is for a very small portion of people, and it's concerning that Patagonia continues to move in this direction. As the company is for people that do things outdoors, one would t... Read Morehink that the leisure clothing would be there to fit people that have the body types of people that do outdoor sports. I'm just really frustrated that I'm the same size as I've always been, but now when I try on Patagonia clothes, I'm made to feel like that size is too big or not the right mix of measurements. I expect that from other brands, but I'm saddened that it's Patagonia as well. So as my previously purchased cords start to wear and are turned into patchwork blankets or something similar, I will continue to look to see if these are redesigned to once again fit somebody with calves and legs that hike and climb mountains. So the next time somebody complains about all of the people wearing leggings instead of pants, maybe consider that it's hard to squeeze muscular calves into skinny jeans.

October 15, 2019

Too low waist for curvy

I ordered the pants in my size and while they fit, the waist is extremely low and uncomfortable. I have a larger hips, belly and butt and the waist on this slides down all the time and with a belt, it is too tight to breathe in.

Just as expected

Love these. Comfy and warm for cool fall days and then cold winter days. Paired with a cute pair of boots, and I’m ready to go to dinner with friends. Put some sneakers on, and I’m ready to walk the dogs. Living in the mountains isn’t always easy. These cords make me feel a little more stylish yet still give me the comfort I need.

Inconsistent sizing

perfect fit

These are the best fitting pants I have had in ten years. For me, the zipper length is perfect as it makes the pants a low rise which is hard to come by these days. They are as flattering as they are cosy.

August 16, 2019

What happened ??

I have been buying and wearing these cords since they came out - what, like five years ago? I've replaced pairs of the same color when I wear them out. I was excited to treat myself to a new color this year, certain they would not go in the "send back" pile. But they don't fit!!! First of all, the zipper is like an inch long. Th...

Lovely feel, but poorly fitted

It’s kind of a bummer. These pants have a lovely feel and are super comfortable, but the cut is really odd. They’re much more of a straight leg than fitted and I wound up with a lot of loose fabric around the knees and calves. Sizing down doesn’t work as the fit is very tight around hips, butt, and thighs.

Well made. I love these but I agree with most reviewers - they’d be even better if they were a skosh less like leggings. Add 1/2-3/4 inch to the width of the legs would be great and they’d still have a slim profile.

December 29, 2018

Small back pockets

I really liked the pants but found the back pockets oddly small. I thought it made them look very weird from the back view.

too tight in the calves

Nicely made pants and in a color I've been looking for (olive drab / green) but had to return them because they were overly snug on my lower legs.

They’re a little too low rise for my comfort (hips, amiright ladies??) but sizing up and having them taken in on the waist line helps. I would beware of plumbers crack situations.

As a lady with long legs the 32” inseam is juuuust barely long enough, and I often find myself rocking the high-water look (but what are you going to do?) Overview, great style and super comfy, but these pants would probably sell out with a high rise and more selections for length. I’m a solid size 28 in most pants. I bought a size 30 to fit my booty and legs, and had the waist line taken about 2” in so they would fit snug on my hips.

Too Small

I love Patagonia as a company and have found many upper body items that I love and wear regularly. However these pants are yet another example of improper sizing in pants.

Extra Low Rise

These pants were a great length but the waist band was SO LOW. It hit right at the widest part of my hips and my backside was not fully covered. If they made a high rise version I would buy those,but the low rise ones are going back.

January 30, 2018

Great all around pants

Originally regretted sizing up. I'm 5'5" 167 and I got the 31 instead of the recommended 30. There were loose and required a belt.

Favorite Corduroys - but issues with sizes

I've owned a pair of these pants for about a year and just recently decided to purchase another pair in a new color because I love the fit so much. My old pair had a little bit of stretch to the waistband making them so comfortable. They are fitted through the hips and snug through the legs - without being tight. For last years pair,I would sa... Read Morey they fit true to size. These have been my go-to pants for post- long fishing or climbing days. My 1-yr old pair still look brand new. You can dress them up or just throw on a flannel. They are also SO good for cold weather days. My only issue is that this new pair doesn't fit as well as the old pair. I ordered the same size,same model - the only difference is the color. The waistband doesn't seem to have as much stretch in it this time. This pair just isn't as comfortable - so I say they run a little small. It also feels like the rise is shorter so the sit lower on your hips. That being said,the next size up would be too large. I've seen this happen with other Patagonia products over the years and hope there can be some consistency someday.

Amazing fit,my favorite pants

I bought these in a size 24,they fit perfectly and as expected. I am 5'2",105. They are so comfortable and soft. Highly recommend!

January 5, 2018

Too fitted even when sizing up

I bought a pair of these last season and LOVE them. I bought them 1 size up so they wouldn't be totally fitted and they are the best cords I have ever owned. This year I bought another pair,same size as last year (one size up) and they are almost too tight to wear. This is really frustrating. Why can't there be consistency from year to ye... Read Morear anymore? Anyone with a hint of muscle in their legs will find these too fitted. It's really frustrating to see a tried and true outdoor company designing more for the lifestyle customers than the athletes. If I wanted that I could have gone to North Face.

Favorite pants

I own 3 pairs of these cords because they're so awesome,very comfortable and they look professional. 5'5" 165 lbs - 31 fits just fine with pear shaped body.

November 21, 2017

Very cute!

Bought these 2 weeks ago,and am loving them. Very cute! I am 5'7" and 135 lbs,athletic build,got a size 27. Probably could also have fit a size 28,just depends on if you like them loose or tight. Lower on the waist that what I prefer with my jeans,and also wider around the ankle area. Looks grat cuffed!

November 17, 2017

Skin-tight from the knees down - meh

These fit like comfy jeans in the waist and the butt but fit like compression socks in the calves. (I'm a runner,but my calves aren't THAT big.) Judging by the model,I'd anticipated more of a straight-leg fit. Even if you're into skinny jeans,which I'm not,these still probably wouldn't work for you - they're super...

November 15, 2017

Not for curvy women

I consistently have the same problems with Patagonia pants and shorts,including these lovely cords--too tight in the front (crotch and waist) and gapping at the back waistband.

These cords are almost perfect. They fit my perfectly,and the cotton is super soft and stretchy,but still sturdy. The color is rich. The length was perfect.

Super soft and awesome color!

I absolutely love these pants. I wear them as much as I can! They are super soft,and I love the fit of them and the length in regular.

In general,I have a problem with pants because I have a bigger butt/hips and then a skinny waist.

The fabric was not regular corduroy. I didn't like the feel of the fabric. It felt like velour.

Become more comfortable over time

Like some other reviewers,I thought about returning these pants when I first received them. They felt like they were too small. I'm glad I kept them on around the house for a couple hours and gave them a chance to loosen up. They're very comfortable after they've been given a chance to fit you properly.

It's an individual choice.

But I realized a few days later when I tried them on again at home that I mostly bought them because I wanted them to work. I'm 5'11" and a 32" inseam just doesn't work for me. Patagonia offers a 34" inseam on the straight leg cords,but just like their jeans,the skinny legged versions only come in 32". While I'm grateful that they offer long inseams at all,I wish they would offer long inseams in their skinny leg pants (and jeans!!!),too.

I ordered two of these pants - one in a size 29 and the other in a size 28 hoping that one of them would fit me. I am 125 lbs, 5'5.5", athletic build. I typically take a size 8 or 10 in other Patagonia pants. Admittingly, my butt is muscular due to skiing (last season 100 days) and biking. The 29 was skin tight and uncomfortable. I didn&#... Read Morex27;t even attempt the 28. My 12 year old daughter (105 lbs, 5'3", slender build) wears a size 4 women's and pants and tried on the size 28. A tiny loose, but pretty much a great fit, esp. with a belt. Beautiful pants, but I would say they run a bit small.

favorite pants

bought a size larger than my usual and they're perfect. They do not stretch too much with wear, which is always a problem for me with other brands, and the legs are not too skinny-tight on my thighs, which is often a problem with skinny jeans/cords. Most comfortable pants I own, I wear them constantly.

versatile and comfortable

Love my pair in Rockwall. I can wear them with almost anything, dressed up or down. Originally purchased the other pair in Blue too, but the sizing was quite different.

Flattering and comfy

Love these cords. They have a really great, skinny fit without gapping, and just enough give to make them really wearable. The gray color is very dark/almost black, which I really like. Bonus that the cotton is organic!

Tight at first

I almost sent these back after the first try-on. I looked like a stuffed sausage. From the reviews I thought there was a chance that they would grow like corduroy tends to do, and they did. After about the 3rd wear they broke in to a more appropriate fit. I've owned them for about 2 months now and they get worn at least once a week. They fit s... Read Morenug, a little skinnier than how the model in the brown wears them, and they are so comfortable. They are like wearing leggings. I tend to run between a 26 and a 27. I got a 26, and I think a 27 might have been ok except maybe a little loose in the waist. They are a tad shorter than I'd prefer. For reference, build is slim and muscular. 5'9" 132lbs waist 26 hips 37. I like the brown pair so much that I got them in the grey/black too(waiting patiently)! I hope Patagonia will bring something similar back next Winter.

Love these! Very comfortable, and have been good to climb in. I'm 5'6", 130 lbs and went with a 27, which fits well, a little tight at first but stretches.

finally a great fitting cord!

A super pair of cords! The slim fit of the leg lays really nicely and the length is perfect. I have always found most Patagonia pants to be too short and these pants are finally longer! They do run a bit generous in the waist and I was happy that I bought a size smaller. They fit great- I possibly could have gone a size smaller even but they would ...

I didn't even know I was looking for these pants.

My husband bought me these cords for Christmas and I was happy to have a different pair to add to my closet. How naive I was. Once I put them on, I thought I would never take them off. The fitted cords are so comfortable that I must actively choose not to wear them everyday. Seriously. I usually wear skinny jeans or dress slacks when I'm at w... Read Moreork. Slipping into these when I get home is divine. They are great for working outside or riding your bike to work. As other people have mentioned, they run large. Buy down a couple of sizes.

Best Cords Out There!

I haven't stopped wearing these cords since I bought them a few months ago. I have both the grey and thatcher. They are the perfect length with just enough slouch over my Blundstones and skinny, but not too skinny. I'm 5'9 and 150lbs and ordered a 30 - they were a little fitted to begin with but have broken in to the perfect size.

Great pants, stretch a little too much though

These pants are cute and I really want them to work, however after wearing them for an evening they've stretched out quite a bit and look oddly baggy around the knees/legs. I'll give them a wash and see if that changes it, and may try a smaller size - even though I'm not sure that will work in the waist for me. Maybe I'm just to...

Versatile in Stlye

These pants are the most versatile pants i own--i love them! They are perfect for a days climb or a casual night out on the town. I would recommend going a size smaller than you are because they do end up stretching out quite a bit. (I'm typically a 28, but got a 27 and at first they felt a little snug but by mid day they were as cozy as yoga ... Read Morepants).

Great pants for climbing and chilling

These are the perfect cords for climbing in crisp autumn weather. They are super stretchy but hokd their shape and I have gotten many compliments on the blue colour. Now I only wish Patagonia would make the same pants in really stretchy denim!

almost perfect...

Thank you, Patagonia, for making a pant that fits today's skinny-style trend. I just ordered a pair of these in the brown color, and I think they are almost perfect, for work or play. The fabric is soft but substantial, stretches with movement, and is a lovely color. My only complaint would be that they might have a little *too* much stretch..... Read More.slightly difficult to wear without a belt due to the degree of stretch in the waistband. I first ordered size 28 and sent back for a 27; due to the reviews, I thought they would run small, but I think it's possible some of the other reviewers are not used to wearing skinny-style pants. I am 5'5" and around 135 lbs., with a roughly 28 inch waist, trim and narrow hips, and muscular thighs and calves.

The color is awesome, the fabric is soft and comfortable, and the cut fits great. I have athlete quads and a slim waist and both the thighs AND waist fit right. Score.

I've been looking for these!

By far the best courds that I've gotten in years. I'm 5'8"/size 4 and the 27 fits me perfectly. I tend to have a problem with the waist of pants being too big but this fit is spot on. the fabric quality is great, for some reason I have a lot of trouible finding courds that don't fall apart after they have been washed.

Love the skinny leg styling.

Love the skinny leg styling. Love the bold color. Love that the stretch means I can still move freely. Wish they came in a higher rise (Patagonia low rise pants tend to create/emphasize a 'muffin top'). I found these to run small: I ordered a size larger than my regular Patagonia cord pants (but the same size I own the straight jeans in) ... Read Moreand I can barely button them. The regular cords stretched a bit with wear, so I'm hoping these will enough, too.

perfect cords

These are great pants, I love the pair I got in blue. They are skinny and low rise, so look out if you want more coverage and less body-clinging style! Pros: very soft but sturdy, flattering, nice fall or spring weight, don't stretch out through the day, low rise with comfy and flattering waist that rises slightly in the back to provide just ... Read Moreenough coverage for things like bike riding, light stretch to give good mobility, nicely sized and placed back pockets, true to size. Cons: a little long (shortens with first wash), bunches a little around the lower half of leg. These sizing things may be because I'm a cyclist with a slightly larger booty and thighs, but the stretch and nice cut of the pants makes me think they'd look and feel good on a lot of different body types.
