Durable and comfortable
i have owned many pairs of these pants and overall they are are very good. On all pairs that I have owned, I have had to have a seamstress replace the inner white pockets as they wear out quickly.

Rugged heavy pants ready for true work
This pair of pants are the heaviest pants I have in my wardrobe. Excellent for working in the snow or windy conditions especially with a base layer under them. Still havent been able to get a tear on em so their definitely worth the money. Great pair of pants!
These are seriously the only pants I wear. I have a weird fit, narrow waist and big sprinter legs. These are the best fitting pants I've worn and the most durable.

Need a button, weird stitching
I love the iron forge hemp fabric but the cargo version of the cut is a bit ..off. You can feel the inside stitching from the pockets quite a bit. Slightly uncomfortable. The 30 was a bit snug in the waist but a shorter cut and the 31 was an extra inch in inseam and too large in the waist and leg width, as far as my preferences go. Will keep wearin...

Way tougher than denim
I own two styles of Iron Forge Hemp jeans and have essentially lived in them for many months, indoors and in the woods. They seriously outperform denim.

Bomb Proof Work Pants
I purchase workpants from a lot of different brands. These are most definately the toughest and softest of them all. I think that's where the hemp truly shines. Patagonia has definately over-engineered these pants. I had gotten them on sale for half the price, but even at full price I'd say they are definately worth it. Unfortunately ther... Read Moree are cons for me. First, the run really small in the waist. Like, really small. I wear a size 30" usually (pandemic boosted me to a 31"). I got a 32" just in case and they were still too small in the waist. I ended up with a 33" and they just barely fit the waist. I've never had to buy a 33" in my entire life. Also, the pants are hella baggy. This may not bother some, especially because there is no stretch in the fabric so the extra room is probably necessary. However, I feel that because i had to size the waist up so much, the rest of the pant like the leg width also increased slightly; maybe, I don't know for sure. This is probably more of a preferance for me; many work pants are now slimmer in fit so these seem like old school in fit. Lack of stretch material will definately bennefit these pants in longevity factor. They are so durable I dont think you can ever wear through them. So soft too.
As described, good quality
A very nicely stitched and thoughtfully produced item. A few previous reviews noted the weight of the trousers being too much; Patagonia have made this clear in their description and they are certainly not too heavy. It's difficult to find thick enough trousers that are also warm. Great work.
Rivet came off, but still a 5 star garment
Great pants so far. Only issue if you will is a rivet on one of the back pockets popped off the second time I wore the pants. Structurally the pants seem fine, not really a reason to send them back but it would be great if the rivets stayed put, long term it could be a potential weakness and result in a separating pocket. In that case I would have ... Read Moreit sewn back on. Love the pants now more than ever and my little girl loves storing things in the side pockets. To dig deeper, the rivet popped off when I put my hand in the rear pocket, so it was gonna fall off anyway. Comfortable for all day wear, good in cooler weather, and abrasion resistant enough to use for work and play. Measure yourself before you order, since these pants are true to size!

Hi Sam, thank you for submitting this review. We're sorry to hear that rivet has come off! As you may know, we offer free [repairs](https://www.patagonia.com/start-repair/). We will reach out to you about some options.
Returned a great product
These pants are amazing. But, they are quite heavy and I would likely only wear them in the Winter in the hot and muggy deep south. Also, the 34" waist was a tag snug for me.

Exquisite Fit; Heavier than Expected
One might say "heavier than expected? It's Hemp Canvas, of course it's heavy," but it's heavy. That said, truly a great fit.

Read Moreut hey it's a start) with some cargo capacity (better to have a pocket and not need it, than need it and not have it). It's pretty tough-stiff on the skin of the knees if you bend-squat quite a bit, but unless you're often squatting alot, it shouldnt be too much of an issue. They seem like they should last quite a while. I got some slight bleach on my black pants, which is mildly disappointing, and the black ones are also getting some of that orange edging coming off near the zipper, not too much of a biggie (after it got washed once or twice), I suspect my mild disdain for it is hurting the pants, because its black, but in full sunlight it kinda looks like dark navy blue. I'll think I'll be pleased with them for years to come
These are my favorite pants, because they are made of about half hemp-type cannabis. I wonder why it took me so long to buy these. They're heavier than you'd expect. Very soft. If you're a 32 waist, then a 34 would be my recommendation. I wish there was a cargo shorts version of these for the summer. They breathe just fine, but a sho...

We're glad to hear you're liking our Canvas Cargo Pants! We use a hemp/polyester/organic cotton blend of fabric in these pants which can also be found in our [Iron Forge Hemp Canvas Cargo Shorts](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-iron-forge-hemp-canvas-cargo-work-shorts-11-inch/57080.html). Thanks for your feedback, Robert!
I've been wearing these primarily for everyday life for 2.5 years now. I use them regularly for hard hiking and general work. they fit me well. They tend to rip out at the crotch after about a year for me, but I want to stress that I use them religiously and for hard work. I have gone through 3 pairs now, and am ordering more.
I like these a great deal. I have a hemp shirt from Patagonia so I figured Id try the pants. I was very surprised about how comfortable they were. They seem to be holding up well after several washes. Pockets are roomy and useful and the fabric is very flexible unlike other brands of work pants
Comfortable Work Pants
Without realizing it I had accidently bought a size just a tad tight and after much debate I decided to keep it because of I have been losing weight at a steady rate. Despite that tiny detail on the waist it doesn't hurt at all. In fact it feels so bulk elsewhere it's as if I've had the pants my entire life. I use this for Flooring a...

I would love LOVE it if you guys could let me know how to clean off paint and glue on the pants. Preferably a green or sustainable way since I would love to eventually change sizes if need be or get it repaired without having the repair workers deal with the grime of dry paint, caulk, glue. If you guys find a way to be able to clean this off I would appreciate it so much.
Great Pants, would love more options!
This is my first pair of hemp pants, and I'm overall loving them. I was a little concerned the fabric would feel rough, stiff, and uncomfortable but they actually feel great! Without even a washing they exude both comfort and durability, which is an impressive combination! Holding them you know you'll keep them for years. I really like th... Read Moree knife clip spot as well. With some reviews saying they ran really small I was pretty nervous about ordering my normal 36 size, so I had my wife (who has run a custom costumes tailoring business) measure me according to the size chart on the website. I ended up buying a 38 based on that, but the 38 ended up being too big! Moral of the story, ignore weird sizing reviews and get what you'd normally buy size wise. Patagonia team: AWESOME job! However, can we please PLEASE get a pant in this material with rugged design consideration in a straight leg? These are fantastic pants but I'd like something just as rugged that is less of a "dad pant" and more of a true "every situation" pant. I'll happily keep these of course, but would love to have more wardrobe options in this fantastic material!
Waist size is laughably tight. What a disappointing product.
Probably the first time in 50 tries i purchased a Patagonia item and was irritated. I wear 34 waist in all my pants - and have a 33 waist pair of climbing pants from 10 years ago (Patagonia) which still fits. I couldn't even get the buttons to even touch!

Softest Heavy Duty Pants You'll ever Own
This is my second pair of Patagonia Hemp Pants. The first was a pair of Iron Forge Hemp work pants (single thickness on the knees). The hemp material is incredibly comfortable. Straight out of the package, you could easily think you pulled on a pair of soft flannel pants. Yes, you can feel the seams but the fabric is buttery soft and feels broken i... Read Moren and comfortable day one. The fit on these pants is less 'relaxed' and less 'baggy' than the work pants. I have a true 37" waist and a 36 fits well which is exactly what the fit quide says. The rise is a bit shorter than the work pants as well. Overall, these are roomy in all the right places for active work but not overly baggy nor does the rear view look like 'droopy drawers'. The cargo pockets are accesible and useful - note: there is not button, velcro or snap on the cargo pocket flap however the curvature of your leg tends to keep the flap closed. So far, the lack of a fastener hasn't been a problem. If you like heavy duty pants but are open for something that feels a bit different, these are well worth a try.
Amazing and durable
These hemp beauties are literally a "jack of all trades" when it comes to use. Really great for casual / work use although way out to a night out. Since purchased I've really worn these only. I suspect washing will continue to soften the hemp fibers further... so only better with time. Sizing in legs and thighs are loose. Waist is pr... Read Moreobably true to size.

Really tough, wish they had better colors
I have several of the Iron Forge hemp garments including the cargo shorts and absolutely love the material. The design is great and I really wanted to keep these. I tried both colors but ultimately did not like the coriander brown and the black is just too dark. Returned both in hopes of better color options in the future.
Really well made and versatile
These are exceptionally well made. In terms of what to do in them, theyd work for casual or work equally well. They are roomy but not baggy, and quite thick and durable. Its one of those items that will do whatever youre doing that day, and do it well.
Pants Great, Pocket Kaput
I purchased these pants in April, 2020 and have worn them nearly daily since then. Now, 1 year and 4 months later the pants are doing great but the pockets are kaput. About 6 months ago I noticed holes in the front pockets and repaired with needle and thread. I have continued to repair the pockets since then and have finally decided that the front ...

Comfy, but cargo pockets can't be closed securely.
This is a nice comfy pair of trousers, roomy and stretchy. However, the cargo pockets lack any form of closure, no buttons, nor velcro or zip. This makes them useless for carrying stuff you don't want to drop. If they had buttons, they can be left open when needed open and closed when more security is need; it would make them more versatile.

Excellent build, small in waist
I really enjoy the quality of these pants. The material and sewing is excellent. However, despite buying the 36, which usually fits me with Patagonia, the waist seems very tight. The length of the pants seem perfect for my 6'4 (195 cm). I do powerlifting, so I really like the seizing at the quads and but.
Great design, great pants
Though Hemp Canvass Pants are great the weight was heavy for my purpose. i thought the weight would be similar to "jungle pants" i wore in 1968-69 in Vietnam, but with typical Patagonia panache. The panache is there though, even in an Iron Forge design. Bravo!
I love that everything is being made by hemp, finally! I did order this pair in my normal size and they were definitely 2 sizes too small. I re-ordered to a 36 and am very happy now. I can't wait to wear for years to come and of course if I have any issues Patagonia will take of it. Great company with wonderful stand-behind values!
Love these pants
I ran across these pants online and I thought that I would give them a try. When they arrived, it was clear that they were substantial and rugged and built to last.

I ski regularly and always need a pair of heavy duty pants for ski trips, these are they, and they will also work well on camping trips, but they are nice enough to wear around in the evening for a night out to dinner (when we ever get to do that again!) Overall, a high quality, heavy duty pant, backed by the best guarantee out there.
Relatively light and super tough

We were enjoying a nice, rainy afternoon watching Dances, and walking the grounds. To make a long story short, while we were sitting in awe of the traditional Grass House which sat on the property, an EF3 tornado landed on us without warning. My wife and I were caught in the middle of 165mph winds, outside, unprotected. We sustained several injuries, but that day I happened to be wearing a pair of these Iron Forge Hemp pants. From the waist upwards my body was COVERED in what we started referring to as "tornado rash," basically road rash from tiny, wind born debris. BUT, from the waist downwards, everywhere my Hemp pants covered, I had no superficial injuries! These pants saved me a lot of hurt. Now I'm not suggesting anyone go get in the way of a tornado in some Iron Forge Hemp clothes and expect to be okay, but this is a testimony to how incredibly durable these are. When it's in my budget, you better bet I will get another pair. Thanks for making such a quality product.
Real, last-forever cargo pants.
These are my winter pants for around the Bay Area. Carry all your gear around with you right at hand. Combined with a Patagonia shirt with the giant zipper pockets and the only thing my day pack is needed for are extra layers etc. These pants should last at least ten years.
I've had them for 10 months and they are no more worn than the day I got them. Although, the material is thick and durable, it is very soft and not at all stiff. The only issue is that they run a little small. I ordered my normal size and they were just a little tight in the waist. I exchanged them for one size larger and they fit great.
Not for use while on you knees
I have two pairs of the iron forge pants and have used them for construction and yard work. Last weekend I had some cleanup to do on a concrete deck and spent a fair amount of time on my knees.

They have the right amount of "hang" off the hips and are very comfortable. The legs are loose but not too relaxed and are comfortable standing,bending,or sitting. The front and back pockets are deep and full and hold everything necessary very well. There is no cell phone pocket but I find the cargo pockets work for that. They are well constructed; a little tighter at the top to keep whatever you are carrying from popping out. The flaps hang free but are thick enough to stay down and not fold up at the corners. I've had no problems there. They are good for a casual work environment as well as tearing about town or hiking in the woods. The material isn't heavy enough to protect you through scrub or brush but it's good for casual use. I've only worn them in the Fall and Winter but they hold up well against the freezing winds we have had here in Oklahoma. Highly recommended! I'll be buying another pair.
All around useful work pants
I live in my work pants,literally,and have found the roominess,comfort and all around utility of these pants pretty refreshing. They fit well underneath chainsaw chaps with items in the cargo pockets,this was a big requirement for me and the rear pockets can hold a variety of different sized wedges with ease. Fit is loose and roomy but I don'... Read More;t feel like I am going to snag anything on a tree and get stuck while felling,also a big deal for me. I typically wear 34x36 in other brands and the 34 x Long fits fine,maybe with a little excess length. These pants also stuff well into the high boots that I use on boats or in wet coastal areas. The ink black color even cleans up fairly well for a night out. As far as functionality of the pants I can't see any improvements but a forestry green color would be pretty dope.
These pants are super rugged ! The pants are perfect super nice feel and great range of movement I was a little worried at first with the relaxed fit being to baggy but the fit is just perfect in the thighs and leg.The only complaint i have is there a little tight in the waist.I went up one size in the waist it was perfect ! It's nice to s... Read Moreee Patagonia making this style pant ! Some time the lightest fastest moisture wicking pants doesn't always fit the job. Way to go
Great Work Pants
Love these pants! The fit is true to size on the waist,and legs are definitely on the looser side (which is perfect for moving around). I live in Hawaii,so I was a little afraid they would be too hot,but not at all! They feel very durable,and I've been using them for about two months doing construction and landscaping work without a problem! ...
