Patagonia Women's Stand Up® Cropped Pants - 26"

True To Size
September 19, 2020

My favorite pants ever!!

I LOVE these pants! I'm 5'2 and 110lbs and the 0 is a little large in the waist but nothing a belt can't fix. They are the perfect length for someone short like me, they hit a little above the ankle and still look a bit cropped! The fabric is so soft and stretchy these pants are so comfortable. You won't regret buying these!

Looks very nice dressed up with low heels/flats or dressed down with sandals, material is soft and well made, love them, great colors although my first choice in a pigeon blue was out of stock, I got smolder blue which looks nice with almost any color top, length is trendy

Fantastic casual pants

I adore these pants and would buy a couple more pairs as they are super versatile, but my size has sold out. Fit is great, comfy, just right. Fabric is soft and I have found, despite other reviewers, that any wrinkles disappear with body heat instantly. Machine wash and dry didn't affect the fit. Please Patagonia, restock these fantastic pants... Read More!

I like the fit

I am curvy at the bottom and love how they fit. I am 5'4" and about 135lbs and they fit really well. The length is good on me and they are great for work and casual wear. I have them in blue and orange and like both colors. One more summery and the other is great for autumn. The pockets at the back are different but I like them.

Fits perfect!

I'm 5'8'' and weigh 130 pounds and I got a size 2, they were a perfect fit and they got delivered in only 2 days!

Nice pants but waist too high

I like the fabric and the style of these pants and the color I got (smolder blue). Size 6 was good for me (I am 5'6", 140 lbs). Unfortunately, the waist is too high, it hits me above my navel and it is uncomfortable when sitting down. I wish they had a lower-rise version of these pants.

July 20, 2020

SO awesome

Hands down my favorite pants I've ever purchased from Patagonia. The crop is the perfect length and the flare is extremely flattering. The pants are quite stretchy so prefer them over jeans any day!

June 19, 2020

cute but proportions seem wrong

The pants have great potential. Typically a size 4, the pants fit as a 4 everywhere except the high waist. It was tiny. I am keeping my fingers crossed that a size 6 could work.

June 19, 2020

Very high waist band

These pants are pretty much just what I expected. I wore the standup shorts many years ago. I wish the waistband wasnt so high.

June 17, 2020

Favorite casual pants

I bought these pants in every color. They look nice and tailored but have the comfort of yoga pants. Love these high waisted crop pants- If they made in a longer length I would buy those , too!

June 17, 2020

Thick Fabric

I bought these thinking they were a fabric that would appropriate for warmer weather but they are quite heavy and stiff (though they might soften up with multiple washings). Anyway, they weren't what I was looking for so I returned them.

June 17, 2020

Wrinkles easily, unattractive fit

I loved the look of these pants in the pictures online. However, after wearing them for just over an hour they were wrinkled and had stretched out to the point that they were unattractively baggy. I usually wear a Patagonia size 4 so this was unusual. I'm returning them.

June 17, 2020

Comfortable, but quite high waisted

I like these crops, but they definitely lean towards the high waisted (see also: "mom jeans") fit. Quite unflattering from the back, unless you're into that look. I do really like the pockets though. Nothing falls out when I'm moving around.

June 11, 2020

Quality materials, strange back pocket

I really wanted to like these pants. They are made of a quality cotton canvas fabric that's neither too thick or too thin. The smolder blue is a pretty color. However, the back pockets are a strange cut and don't seem practical. Also a bit of a tight fit at the waist, but baggy through the legs.

June 10, 2020

Stiff, unflattering and heavy

The waist is oddly narrow and tight. Heavy, thick fabric that feels like work attire on a construction site. Very disappointed.

Best all year-round capri!

These are so fun and comfortable! I don't normally like high-waisted pants or capris but it works with this style. I like the heavy canvas feel of the fabric, which lends them to holding up well; they won't snag or get holes in them easily.

Great pants!

I love these pants - they are super comfortable, stylish, and fit great. Yesterday I wore them for a gardening, a 6-hr Zoom meeting, and a ~ 3 mile hike. I have iterations of this high-waisted, wide-leg pants style from other companies, but this one wins on comfort, price, and fit across the board. An added bonus for me is that I'm petite (5&#...

These pants are SUPER cute, unique and comfy! I tried them on and then did not take them off! I love the high waist in them and the stretch to them. I want them in all the colors! You rock Patagonia

March 10, 2020


These pants are amazing! Very stretchy and comfortable. I can climb in these or just use them for everyday wear. The high rise goes to my belly button. I am a solid size 2 athletic build.

Looove these pants! Very similar to Everlane's Wide Leg Crop or Sailor Pants from Jesse Kamm but in my opinion a lot lighter and more comfortable. Love the high waist!

Stand Up

I LOVE THESE PANTS!!! I am 5ft and the length, shape, and waist fit me perfectly!! Highly recommend! They give enough stretch to walk around in all day! Plus they're high waisted :)

January 3, 2020

Unfortunately unflattering

Love the quality and the color, but very unflattering for anyone who doesn't have a completely flat abdomen. After two kids this pair is a no go.

Awesome pants

Loved these pants- wore them on hot days walking around Disney- yes, the theme park. Gulp. They seemed stand-up-ish and pretty snug around my waist and hips and butt, straight out of the mailing envelope, but then loosened up as I wore them- 3 days in a row. They became very loose- so if you’re not looking for the skin right look, these are terrifi... Read Morec pants. I’m size 2 and ordered 2. Happy with color too- the grey, I think.

Really like them

JUST got them in the mail and have been lounging in them. I am 5’6”, 145 lbs, all legs super short torso, more of a straight figure with a booty. These fit really nicely and are super flattering for the butt. They fit my legs just where I hoped they would, they are a true crop on me. They are quite high waisted on me - Top of the pants hit me at ab... Read Moreout one inch above the navel. Quality feels great, surprisingly light and cool feeling. Almost more of a work pant look and feel - in a very good way. The waist is a little tight when I sit, waistband doesn’t seem to have too much stretch but all the reviews say these pants will stretch so I’m interested to see if they get more comfortable to sit in. The legs are SUPER comfy and I love the look. Definitely will get wear out of these. Really wish I could add pictures!

October 22, 2019

Terrific fit, very flattering!

Love these! Was nervous about back pockets but they flattering. High waist is nice and cropped length cute. Fit loosens after awhile for an even better fit. Highly recommend - wish could've gotten green before size 8 was all gone. Will hope for more colors and same design next season!

October 14, 2019

Fun and comfortable

They fit true to size, I love the green color, very fun and cute. I will be buying more in other colors

Works for this curvy girl

Got them today and was luckily surprised with how well they fit. I am used to most outdoor brand pants only offering a 'mid-rise' fit and these were quite different. I have a shorter torso and these hit at the top of my navel. Material bends with movement and feel pretty lightweight overall. These are edging on high waters for my 5'3... Read More" frame. Only 4 stars as they sorta accentuate my stomach but not terribly. Order a size up if you want a looser fit. Regular size for regular.

September 22, 2019

Great fabric, weird fit for me

The fabric is wonderful and lightweight but the waist was ultimately too high for me. I ordered a size 10. I’m 5’7, 150lbs and curvy. My stomach is not flat and these really accentuated my paunch! Not the look I’m going for.

Just a tad bigger than I hoped

I love these pants, super comfy, lovely cut, but... I hate to leave a but.. they run a little big. I'm fairly small, 5'6ish 115, athletic build. I typically wear 0 in most Patagonia items but these were BIG. I need to wear a belt. Love them nonetheless!

I'm keeping them and...

They will last forever and the stretch is great, but they run a bit longer than I expected for cropped pants. The front pockets also pouf out a bit, maybe because of the high waist, which is a style I will need to get used to.

Stand up cropped pants

These are great. I love the wider leg, the fabric is comfortable and durable. And I appreciate the larger size.

Love the return of the stand up pants

Thank you Patagonia for bringing back this style. We girls with hips and thighs have been awaiting the return of the wide legged pant! They are soft and oh so comfortable. These fit true to size and for reference I am 5’ 5”, 150lbs. and wear a size 30. Please make a full length version for winter.

August 31, 2019

Too slim fitting

The trousers were the right size, but to slim fitting to be comfortable. I thought they’d be looser in the keg

My third pair

I love these pants. Great weight, fit and fabric. True to size.

August 21, 2019

So great, just stretch out a little

I tried these pants on in the green color in store and loved the fit, but the brown is a little bit bigger and seems to be a different fabric than the green ones. They also fit a little big, so size down. Otherwise, I am completely in love with them. They are so comfortable and would be great for travel, gardening, or wearing around. For reference ...

Love these

The wide leg is really my new favorite pant trend and these stand up pants are perfect! The pockets really add some cool style, and I feel kinda boho chic and mountain crunchy in them, while also just being on trend! I bought one pair and ended up getting two more.

August 10, 2019

Great quality, not great fit

I wanted these to work but alas not to be. High waist didn’t work for me- I’m 5’2 so really high, and uncomfortable and not flattering with my 60+ spare tire. Like my old stand up shorts but lighter weight. Good colors, nicely made.

August 10, 2019

Stand-up crops

These super comfortable and durable. I have 5 pairs and wear them frequently!

August 10, 2019

It’s ok

Not a fan of the shape of the rear pockets. The high waist drops on me when fabric stretches out and it becomes a dropped crotch pair of pants, but oh well. I have to fold the waist band down after fastening, to get it to stay put.

July 2, 2019

LOVE them- Runs big

LOVE the pants and style. I I am 5'6" 130 lbs and usually wear a 4 but they are too baggy. Very loose in the waist and there is fabric bunching at the crotch for me. I am ordering a new pair in the size 2. They are highwaisted to the perfect height. for me.

Finally a high waisted pant that flatters

I was hesitant to order these as I am long waisted and slightly curvy but the thick cotton fabric and back pocket design seemed like it might work. I am not disappointed! These are perfect!

These pants are perfect for Spring projects out at my land. They're light weight but durable at the same time. I'll be purchasing more for sure!

Go to shorts

Easy to throw on, comfy, and look good. What more do you want?

May 8, 2019

New Pants

I ordered online two pairs of pants. One fit like a glove, and the other I ordered too big. I went to the store here in Denver, and they immediately found a pair that was the current season and gave me the exchange at the online sale price. I never want to buy another pair of pants anywhere else!

May 8, 2019

Had to return

These were way too small and I returned them to a store.

May 8, 2019

Nice summer pants

Perfect fit. Fabric is lightweight, which is good for summer, but the feel is kind-of-cheap.

May 8, 2019

comfortable pants

nice for relaxed works days and the side seasons, spring and fall.Very comfortable. I love to put my hands in the deep pockets. I probably should have gotten a size smaller though.

May 8, 2019

Love the Pockets

Hard working pants with awesome pockets! Great on the trail and in the garden. Would have preferred full length, but only the cropped style was available. They do show off my work boots :)

April 23, 2019

Regrettable purchase

I have a lot of Patagonia items, and this is unfortunately my least favorite purchase to date. They stretch out immensely in the waste and then ride down after 1 wear. Not a good look if you have any sort of butt. Bummer because I was so looking forward to a good crop flare! May be good if you are slender without much of a butt.

Not sure about the fit --

I am always trying to find the right Patagonia pant -- loved the idea of the Fair Trade products and such - I bought a size 2 (I am 5'6" 120 lbs) --- they fit but they look a little awkward -- fine in the waist / slim in quad / length a little short? --- not sure if I just need to throw some sandals on and give it a go -- not the most fla...

potential crops

I really like my Stand-Up shorts, and had hoped this cropped version would be similar....nope. The waist was extremely high and not so attractive on this aging frame. I even got the same size as my shorts, which fit well, and a size larger just in case. Neither size worked. Bummer-

not crops, but comfortable

I am 5'5" 120 lb -- size 4 is basically the length of regular pants, also size 6 comes to ankles. No indication of "crop." but the 6 especially is comfy, though it stretches out enough to pull off without unzipping... simply not flattering, but who cares?

March 26, 2019

Ammending my review

After wearing these several time now I find that no matter what, the waist band of the pants eventually gravitates to sit on my hip bones, which are at least an inch below my navel, and anything with a high waist line like these puts the waist band right about navel height. And when they gravitate to rest on my hips, then the crotch of the pants ha... Read Morengs below my crotch and the fabric there rubs my skin as I walk (and in my work day I walk around all the time). But they are good looking, well made pants, and I'd really recommend them if you do well with a high waist. They're just not as comfortable on my particular bone structure as I'd like, and they're not so uncomfortable that I'll never wear them. I'll stick to lowish rise pants now but unfortunately low rise is kind of out of fashion right now and they aren't easy to find. For reference, I'm 5'5", 120 pounds, and the size 2 works the best. Right out of the dryer the green ones are a bit snug but loosen quickly. The beige ones are a bit larger in the same size.

March 1, 2019

Pretty great

These pants have worked out pretty darn well. These are a mid or high-ish waist which I'm not a fan of (I think a mid-low rise is perfect) but these are actually ok in that regard. I mean, I usually don't find that waist very comfortable but these are not bad. I'm usually a 2 or a 26 in Patagonia pants and I bought the tan ones and t... Read Morehe olive green ones in size 2. The olive ones are quite a bit snugger at the waist and upper butt than the tan but both are working out. I just belt the tan ones. Right out of the dryer, I think: "oh, no way!" about the green ones but after a few squats they're fine and an hour into my shift at work and they feel normal. I love the material and the level of stretch, and I really love the fit of the rest of these pants.

February 6, 2019

Great quality and so flattering!

I am normally a size 6 (5'6" and 135 lbs), and they fit, but I like wearing these high waisted, so I ended up keeping a size 4 and LOVE them.

runs big

Really nice fabric and love the style, but fit runs a little too big. I normally wear a size 4/6 in Patagonia, sized down to a 4 and it's still a pretty relaxed fit, especially around the waist.

Perfect 4me! ...after sizing up!

I originally ordered these pants in a 4, they fit just the way Patagonia designed them, cropped and high waisted...but, I like a low rise fit. Using the sizing chart, I decided to order an 8.

Great everyday pants!

I originally bought these pants in a size 10,but found they fit a bit large (because they were stretchier than I was anticipating) and sized down to an 8.
