Great but one serious design flaw
These jeans are my favorite jeans. I wear them nearly everyday and they are extremely comfortable. Not that durable because of the mixed fabric but thats the trade off you make I suppose.

Some of the best pants I own
Not sure if these are the exact pair but I purchased a pair of Straight Stretch 28x32 jeans from the outlet about a year ago.

Good but needs a few adjustments
I've owned these jeans for about a year now and wear them on a very regular basis. First off, the fit is good but not the best.

I wear them a lot and do pretty active things with them, so it's not unheard of for a pair of jeans to wear out in a year, but I was honestly expecting some more durability out of them for the price paid. I think that if the denim weight were increased a bit it would help to make the pants more durable.
Almost perfect, however...
These jeans fit perfect. I love the stretch and wicking, they're great for work or play. However, why would Patagonia cheap out with the front pockets?

Everything about these jeans is great, except the front pockets. They are comfortable, fit well and are great in almost every way. However, the front pockets aren't deep enough for a guy.

Such an important mistake on otherwise well-made jeans.

The pants fit great in the store, but after a couple of wearings they stretched out and didn’t fit any more. Disappointed by the fit and quality.

Amazing jeans,slightly inconsistent tailoring
I have been trying for probably 10 years to find a pair of Patagonia jeans that fit well -- this is finally the pair.

The fit is great -- tight fitting,yet stretchy and really fluid for active motion. I love everything about them (fit,color,materials,manufacturing process). Great for work and bouldering. I would give them a 5 star rating if the tailoring were more consistent -- I bought a second pair shortly after the first pair (exactly the same size) and the second pair doesn't fit quite as well as the first -- noticeably looser in the thighs. Try them on in the store to avoid that web purchase pitfall.

I had to buy these in a 36 to get them to fit like pants rather than running tights. As a result,the waist is huge,like I could fit a softball between it and my belly,but the rest of the fit is perfect. Weird,but it is what it is. I liked them so much,in fact,I bought a second pair online from patagonia.com in Dark Denim in the same size. I don't like them as much for two reasons. First,the color is a vibrant dark denim,like real bright,almost purple. Second,they fit different and are slightly smaller in all facets. Same size,same materials,same manufacturer,and yet they are noticeably smaller and less comfortable. Lessons learned: size up,get a belt,and avoid dark denim unless you like a bright denim. Really bright.
Fits small,too stretchy
As many others have observed,these jeans fit small/slim. If I were to buy my usual waist size (34) they'd fit like "man jeggings". Fortunately going up to 35 gets me a decent fit. I find these jeans a bit too stretchy. Before Patagonia brought these out a few years ago they made jeans with less spandex and a bit looser fit (imagine ...

The thin material makes them breathable,however,if you plan to wear them for a winter hike I highly recommend you purchase a thin pair of capilene underwear for an ideal match. Enjoy!

Bought these a month ago and almost literally haven't taken them off. Look sharp like jeans,super comfy like sweat pants,stretchy enough to rock climb in,and step over the baby gates all over our house!

Great but they hold onto odors
I've put these jeans through the wringer for about 6 months -- I climbed throughout New England in the fall, bouldered in Tennessee/Georgia/Alabama in the winter, and sport climbed in Arizona in the spring.

Even though both jeans say the are at the waist and a regular rise,these are nearly an inch higher. That's getting into mom jeans territory. For me the highe... Read Morer rise means they fit tighter at the waist,so thankfully they stretch. It seems to me that for a performance jean,it makes more sense having them wear just below the waist.

Great everyday jeans
I've worn these for the last couple months and gotta say they're Patagonia's best jeans yet. The dark denim looks really nice and hasn't begun to fade at all.

The fabric also has a little bit of stretch, but still holds it's shape very well. The only thing I think they could improve is to use a darker thread for the stitching.

These jeans are awesome. Since this is the performance fit, it's got a little bit of stretch and it's super lightweight. I would really recommend these for spring/fall, as well as winter in moderate climates. I'm 5'11 165lbs and got a size 33x32 and they fit great. Not too tight at all, not too baggy.

The Performance jeans are Franz Ferdinand tight. The capper is, Patagonia ALWAYS has this problem. Guys, I love your stuff. When other stuff wears out, Patagonia is my go-to. But it is SO FRUSTRATING to size. Sometimes Slim means athletic, sometimes it means ultra-marathoner-skinny. Sometime Regular means roomy, sometimes it means must-have-a-large-beer-belly-to-wear. I asked an employee about this. She said she ranges between a Large and an Extra Small. This is why I never order anything Patagonia online: I don't want to order 5 different sizes, only to find none fit. Figure out sizing, and you will have this and many other winners.
