Best pants ever
I now have 5 pairs of these Caliza and they are so comfortable for all kinds of activities. I always get compliments when I wear them. I love the flexibility of the fabric and the snap adjustability. I think they would be perfect if they were 1 inch longer, but I still think they are the greatest as is. I wear them for work, yoga, walking, casual e... Read Morevents. Pretty much every day ! Please do not ever discontinue them.
Stay away if you're tall
I love the waistband, I have a huge hip to waist difference which makes climbing pants really difficult. However they are waaaaay too short, they ride up the calf while climbing and get stuck there. I'm 175cm, would not recommend for anyone above 170. They make a short version and no tall version, but this barley fit average height women. Al...

Really flexible and comfy
I had to return my original purchase of a size 6 for a size 8 because they run a bit small, but I should have known better since I'm an hourglass trying to buy Patagonia.

Would be perfect with some tweaks
I am with the reviewer Amanda below. These are super comfortable, durable , and stretchy and the wide elastic waist is such a great idea.

These are great pants, but they are short. Please make a tall option! Also I no longer see the pretty green/blue color that I have. Please bring back/ expand the color options. Its so hard to find good climbing pants for women, and these are oh so close to perfect.

Hello Cada, thank you for your review. We'll share your thoughts on the inseam length with our product team. We typically switch colors out seasonally, so we recommend checking back! It looks like we have a few new colors that will be tentatively available August through January so keep an eye out for that. If you'd like an update on a specific size or color you're looking for, reach out to [customer service](https://help.patagonia.com/s/?_gl=1*7l4g5f*_ga*MTE3MzgxOTU4OS4xNjQ3NTMxMTc0*_ga_1SYPSJZYJ5*MTY4MjQzNzM3NC43MzQuMS4xNjgyNDM3NTQ1LjYwLjAuMA..) and we could give you more details.

My favorite pants for climbing, just too short!
Pants are well-named as these hold up great on sharp limestone! I am in love with these pants and they fit like they are made for me except they are a couple inches too short and when Im in a harness they land at about mid calf! Id be first in line for a tall version of the Caliza pants!
Perfect, could use a tall option
I am a hiker and bicycle rider and these pants fit those activities perfectly. Just the right amount of stretch and slim fitting. I love the Henna color and the waistband, it could be a tad wider.

Nice pants, useless pockets
Not sure why the team would choose to design such a nice technical pant with such useless pockets. If you look at other men's pants like the venga, the pockets aren't as slanted and could feasibly be used to hold objects, not these!

I live in this pants!
I originally bought a pair for climbing...but it then quickly turned out that I live in these pants. I just wear them all the time as they are so super comfy.

Great Climbing Pants
I love these pants so much (bought a second pair and am considering a third). They are super comfortable (don't ride up or down), and the material is great and seems to be very durable. I do wish they were a hair more loose-sitting, and an additional slanted thigh-pocket would be great for when you're wearing a harness, but overall these ...

The fit was accurate and
The fit was accurate and they are very comfortable for casual wear. I purchased the blue and love the color, they do look like hospital scrubs however. I am a bit worried about the waist, they seem to fall down a bit while walking, thus the rating of 4 stars
Quality and Good Fit
I was hesitate to order these pants because I don't usually spend that much money on clothes, but these were worth every penny. I was on the fence about size and these worked out perfectly.

Most comfortable trousers I've ever worn
I love these trousers. These have to be the most comfortable trousers I have ever worn. I now have 3 pairs in different colours. I wear them everywhere. The cut, stretchiness and waistband design make these ideal for leisurely bike rides, yoga/stretching, lounging around, walking etc.
Would give 5 stars if they made a longer version!
My only complaint is that the size 2 feels too short and the size 4 didn't fit in the waist. The snaps at the bottom often pop open when they ride too high on my calf with a high foot, etc. For reference, I'm 5'8 135lbs.

Comfy but takes forever to dry
I like how comfy these are, but..I just wore them this weekend. I was canoeing in a remote area and as I was getting out of the canoe, fell in up to my waist.

Love the style of the pants, but lots of improvements needed. First the waste band needs to be tighter. I am an athlete as most women buying these.

I wouldn't wear these multi pitch because of the lack of zipper pockets but bouldering should be fine. Almost great please if you're going to do one thing please make the pockets deeper so frustrating.

Theyre great! The waistband hits me above where my climbing harness hits and its comfortable and doesnt roll when I move around.

Also, my number 1 problem is always shredding pants between my legs and Ive worn these almost nonstop since they showed up and have not had any wear and tear yet which is definitely an unexpected bonus!
Great for climbing!
Great for climbing! Wore these outside on a recent trip and they were great at protecting my leg from scraping on the rock, stretchy for all movement needed, decently breathable, and also a great pant to hike in to keep off bugs/thorns. Also casual enough to wear to the office or running errands.
Nooooo! Sizes changed (got bigger)
I got these in the green and they were my FAVORITE pants. Gave them rave reviews and got another pair in the brown (new season). They totally changed the sizing between seasons/colors. I measured against my other pair - they are like 3+ inches longer throughout (the knee hits lower, pants are longer); wider leg; wider waist; look slouchier. I was s...

Great for nearly anything
After purchasing three pairs of these pants (and will likely purchase more in different colors), I wear these in nearly every situation that I can.

Im difficult to fit and allergic to synthetics, yet need versatile, performance clothing. I wont be climbing in these pants, but they are ideal for multiple activities. I love the subtle design statement, color (green), the stretch and the snap ankles. Wish there was a pair in blue available, but alas.
Wonderful pant, but had to return
I ordered the Borealis Green color and it is beautiful; but the inseam was too long. The short version will probably fit perfectly, but does not have the color options the regular inseam does.

Just got these in the mail, Im 120 lbs, 55 the waistband is a little small but tbh you want it that way because there arent any drawstrings on it (and it stretches) but for me it fit PERFECT! LOVE these pants and I will be wearing them every single day from here on out. Comfy enough to sleep in, rock climbing, yoga, hiking, you name it!
Flattering and comfortable to move in
I love these pants for bouldering. I ended up ordering 3 pairs in different colors because they are so flattering and comfortable. Easy to move in for climbing and they also look nice enough to wear out and about and even to work if your workplace is casual. I love all the pockets and the snaps at the ankles. Highly recommend.
Great comfortable cut
I would usually wear size 10 but I had to size down. The 8 is perfect around the hips and legs, but maybe a taaad short at the ankles. Still, no bother for me. The hip elastic is comfortable, though I'm wondering if a drawstring might help it last longer -- TBD. Wish the pockets had a zip somewhere, were longer, and that the internal materia...

My new favorite pant
These pants are incredible they have enough stretch and thickness to be perfect for indoor and outdoor climbing in most weather.

I love love love love the fit of these pants. They look great, super comfortable, perfect movement ability with the articulated knees.

After over a year of trying to find the perfect pair of climbing pants, these are it! I adore the waistband - the elastic is perfect under a harness, it lays flat, and is extremely comfortable.

I love these pants so much I bought them in two different colors (which I never do because it feels superfluous, but I can't emphasize how great these pants are). For sizing reference, I got the 0 regular and they fit perfect. I am a 25" waist, 33" hips, and 28" inseam. They did shrink a little bit when I dried them, but that made them fit better for me.
Ordered two sizes 18 and 16, usually wear a size 18. Soon as I tried it on, I didn't want to take it off. They are warm without being hot, stretchy without looking like workout clothes. Classy without feeling restrictive. I ordered 2 more in other colors and waitlisted for the other two out of stock colors.

I am 5'10/178cm, wearing UK size 8/10, depending on how buggy I want it to be. I ordered size 6 and it fits perfectly. Fabric is soft and stretchy.

Comfortable and stretchy
Size 6 is great. Waist is perfect, pockets lie flat, but like all Patagonia pants for women the inseam is short. If your inseam is longer than 32, you will find these to be high water pants. It is fine because these are for summer but I wish they came in tall.
Order two while you're at it
As soon as I tried these on I ordered another color. Of all of the Patagonia products I've purchased over the past 40 or so years (most of which are still in service), the most-times-worn record was broken by my still-beloved Synchilla hoodie a couple decades (?) ago, but these pants might already be in second place.

Great climbing pant!
Just what it was made for - fabric is stretchy, but seems durable; waistband is super comfortable/not too tight; length hits just above the ankle - keeping it away from my footwork. So far I've only used them for bouldering and have made no effort to use the pockets.

I own three different styles of Patagonia climbing pants, and these are my favorite pair. So far, I've only climbed indoors with them but anticipate that they will perform well outdoors, too.

Flexible Climbing Pants!
These pants are excellent in durability and flexibility for bouldering and rope climbing! I am 118lbs, 5'4", and the size 4 fits perfectly it is not too snug but also not baggy. I have great mobility and no limitation in these pants for high steps or heel hooking. I have had several different brands of climbing pants in the past and these...

I was looking for hiking/summer everything pants, but wasn't considering climbing pants. Traditional hiking pants all looked like they had PFAS, and I couldn't find anything in my size on Worn Wear... so I decided to give these a try.

These are the only pants I ever want to wear climbing (and after). The fit is perfect (especially for someone like myself who has hips and a small waist).

The Best Climbing Pants.
So, I'm a guy who has been on the hunt for a pair of really stretchy + really abrasion resistant climbing pants for quite a while. The men's Venga rock pants are okay, but in my opinion don't stretch nearly enough for harder technical climbing. Same issue with the men's RPS pants -- they limit my mobility quite a bit. After my... Read More girlfriend got two pairs of these I was incredibly jealous of how the fabric felt, so I just ball-parked what my waist size would be and went for it. They are incredible, these are the holy grail of climbing pants. Perfect stretch, perfect weight, the fabric feels durable. I'm 5'9" and usually wear a 31 waist in men's pants, and went with the size 12 for these. I would probably also fit in a size 10, but 12 feels fine. If Patagonia makes a men's version out of this same fabric, I'll give them a shot. Until then, I'll happily rock these.

I must admit, I have been apprehensive in ordering these pants as my experience in Patagonia's pants seizing has been mixed. Having said that, these pants are absolutely perfect!

I don't write reviews ever, but for this product, I had to.

I have hips and a backside that makes it hard to shop for pants and while in the last 10 years most clothing companies have caught up with the times and are making pants for people like myself, for some reason outdoor gear companies have not. Then I came across these pants. One of the models used to display them seemed to have a similar body type as myself, so I figured I would give them a try and let me tell you, they.are. perfect. Thank you Patagonia for making body inclusive clothing and showing diverse body types in your displays. I kid you not, I cried when I tried them on. It may seem silly, but finding these pants made me feel truly seen in the outdoor space for the first time. As a minority woman, I greatly appreciate your work!
Best rock pants!
Love these pants for bouldering! My first Patagonia pair and I could not be happier. Great for gym or outdoors. Im usually a size 4 bu my sized up to a 6, which Im happy I did (advice from other reviews). Feels like they will last a lifetime and Ill wear these for years to come.
I struggle to find climbing pants that actually fit, are comfortable, flattering, stretchy enough for those high feet moves, and are durable. Maybe for the first time ever I have found the pants that do it all- I want to give away all my other climbing pants because they no longer compare, highly recommend giving these a try
I find myself reaching for these several times a week since I bought them a couple of months ago. I love the adjustable snap at the ankle. Material is durable and comfortable. I will definitely be buying more pairs, especially if they make more colors and restock existing colors.
I am disappointed on the colouring/fabric; after just one wash, colour on the seams became white and the pants looks like they are at least 10 years old. They look worn and tired.

Read Morethe placement and contour of the Caliza.) I was nervous about this waist band and no draw string, but it works and is comfortable with a harness. Will see how the stretch holds up over time. I tend to prefer neutral colors and my choices were black and dolomite. I would have gone dolomite but thought the busy waistband was a bit extra. I chose black and like them, dressy enough for work too! However, chalk and lint really cling to them (as one might expect) so you have to be willing to embrace that.
Finally pants that fit my thighs!
I bought these to have a pair of flexible and light pants to chase and play with my kids in the park, climb on the slide and sturdy enough for the outdoor rough playing. These are very soft and flexible, lightweight and with enough room to move, they look nice on me. For reference I have wide hips and thick thighs.
Comfy and looks nice
I love these trousers! I specifically got them for indoor and outdoor rock climbing, but i tend to wear them more often. The are stretchy and unobstructive when it comes to movement. I was unsure about the red colour, but it's actually very pretty - more of a pink-red, than blue-red. Highly recommended!
Best pants I've ever owned
These pants are wonderful!! I'm in between sizes 12 and 10, and decided to order the 10, since I am quickly losing volume. It was absolutely the right choice. My waist is relatively small (around 77 cm) compared to my hips (around 105 cm), and I have thick legs, specially the thighs, and because of that I was worried that a size 10 might not f... Read Moreit. Ultimately I went with it, and I'm so happy. I tried them on, and immediately decided to go climbing in them. After moving a bit, the fabric stretched from a slim to a regular fit. The pants are very flattering and comfortable. The fabric also feels sturdy and durable, which is always a plus. My thighs, calves and hips fit perfectly, and the elastic waist band hugs my waist without crushing it, nor does it float around my tummy (which is usually the case with climbing pants that fit my hips and thighs). The inseam is perfect for us short women. Even though there's a bit of extra fabric around the ankle, it's not a massive pool of fabric that hangs around there. This might mean that taller women end up with cropped pants though. For reference, I'm 153 cm. It may be worth to keep in mind that women with a longer rise might not be able to wear the pants around their natural waist. If you're short and have a curvy body, I totally recommend these pants. I love them so much, I'll definitely buy them in more colours.
My favorite pants
These are my absolute favorite pants. They're the only pair of Patagonia pants that fits me properly and I own 2 pairs in black and 1 in blue so I can wear them all week. I don't love the waistband on the blue ones because I tend to tuck shirts in and it becomes the focal point, but that's okay! They sit right above my ankle and I lo... Read Moreve the snaps that give the option of how tight the bottom of the leg is. I've worn them to work, hiking, biking, and rock climbing. They've held up to considerable wear and tear in the last year and once they wear through (no time soon) I plan on patching them with some fun colors!! Love these.
Perfect for climbing!
Got these recently. Mainly use for hiking and climbing. I absolutely love them! They move so well, don't get in the way when I am climbing, and are super comfortable with a harness on. I was mainly looking for a thicker pant to protect my knees when I (accidentally) bump them while climbing, and these are perfect. Only thing I would change is ... Read Morethe length; I am 5'9'' and they run slightly short, but I tend to roll them up when climbing anyway so this doesn't bug me, but might for some others.
Awesome pants but run short as usual
These pants are almost perfect. The yoga waistband is so comfy but beware it is slightly small for a size 6. The cut, fit and color (bright blue) of these pants is really flattering, I might end up wearing these as casually too. These pants would be honestly be perfect if Patagonia offered a longer inseam option. The inseam on these is about 29, so... Read More they hit about 3 above my ankle. Not terrible but since theyre cotton I probably wont dry them to prevent them from getting any shorter. (Im 510, 135lbs, typically a size 6 or 28 in pants for reference). Patagonia, PLEASE offer some different inseam options for your tall athletic ladies out there!
y'all, pants never fit me. ever. i am not a climber but these looked nice enough that i could wear them to work and i could pretend they were nice pants and no one would notice. let me tell you. they look amazing but more importantly, they actually fit me. they are the only pants that fit my body type. for reference, i have a big bum, big thig... Read Morehs, and medium-big calves, but a pretty small waist. usually if i can get something over my bum it just falls right back off but the waist band on these is perfection. plus, since they are climbing pants they stretch all over and allow me to do my job well without worrying about my clothes (i'm an elementary teacher.) seriously, i cannot recommend these enough, especially if you have a body type similar to mine as described above. i cried from happiness to find pants that fit well and look good!
These pants are fantastic. They are higher waisted with a stretchy waist to fit comfortably under a harness. I love the detail of the foot snaps so I can still see my feet while I'm climbing, but can have the more relaxed fit around the ankles when I'm running errands. I find the material to be very breathable and doesn't hold on to ... Read Moreodors.
NOT for tall girls
I'm just over 5'11" with long legs and and a straight rower's build, with a slightly more solid tummy than I used to have, after having a kid!

These are definitely cut for petite women with a defined waist and athletic hips and thighs. Avoid if you are tall and built straight.
Response from PatagoniaMarch 30, 2021
Thank you for your review on our Caliza Rock Pants. We're sorry to hear that these didn't end up working out for you. We're working on offering more extended sizing, including tall options, but it will take some time for us to nail it and present it to the public. In the meantime, we'd recommend checking out the [Women's Chambeau Rock Pants](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-chambeau-rock-pants/82935.html?dwvar_82935_color=CMPG&cgid=root). We double checked on the measurements and they do offer a longer inseam.
Best Climbing Pants Ever!
Love these. Soft, comfortable, not too thin to wear outside like some of my Prana, but not too bulky and oversized like my E9s.

Climbing pants of my dreams
These are everything youve been looking for! High waist, comfy yoga pant like waist band, durable stretchy material, ability to cinch ankles...Im obsessed.

Comfortable and stylish
These pants are very comfortable, cut really well and look good. The material is light but feels strong, and the design is really well thought-out. These are going to get a lot of wear! I'm a UK size 8-10 and the size 4 fits well, if slightly loose around the bum. The narrow ankles with snaps are a great feature for climbing.
Best All-Around Pair of Pants I've Ever Owned
I love these pants! The fit is awesome - they're comfy, loose, and have the perfect amount of stretch but look fitted and great.

I really like these pants they are cute, comfortable and breathable. I love the waist band and stretchy fabric. I like the snap at the ankle of the pant so that I can easily roll them up.

Great fit & flattering
I have a heck of a time finding activewear pants that don't give me a huge waist gap, and finding these has totally solved my problem. The waistband is super stretchy and the material through the legs is roomy enough for movement but still look really cute. I'll be snagging another pair!
Great for Summer Farmers!
I am a vegetable farmer and as someone who is working outside in the summer, pants are a huge challenge. Shorts would be great, but when I'm kneeling in soil all day, pants are a must. For bending, kneeling, and walking in the fields all day long, these are by far my favorite pants to wear in the warmer months. They were recommended to me fr... Read Moreom another female farmer and she did not steer me wrong! I do wish the pockets had zippers so my phone wouldn't fall out when I crouch down. I also would love belt loops so I could more easily wear my harvest knife sheath (but I know these are made specifically for rock climbing and not outdoor workers!) so I understand why there are no belt loops. If these pants can easily handle a year of farming, they're sure to stand up to whatever activities you have planned for them! I highly recommend these for year round wear, but I have particularly have enjoyed having a lighter weight, but sturdy pant to wear for farm work in the Summer.
I bought these for climbing since I usually climb in shorts and my legs get all scraped up, but I was skeptical because I'm generally not a "pants" person unless it's really cold. Then I tried these pants. They look like they're khakis but actually are much lighter and stretchier than they look. The yoga-pants waistband is ... Read Moresuper comfy too. They're a little long but easy to roll up. So far I've only climbed in them but they'd be great for hiking, too. They're not *quite* dressy enough to wear to work, otherwise I would, but they easily transition to lunch/coffee after climbing. Anyway, I'm stoked I bought these and just ordered another pair in the bright blue color!
Comfy and Casual
This is the second pair of Rock Pants that I have purchased. I wore the last pair out after five years and now wear them when doing yard work. The Caliza Rock Pant is incredibly comfortable and yet durable at the same time. Will probably get another pair again soon! Thanks for keeping a great product around!
I wear these pants for outdoor rock climbing. They are comfortable, stretchy, flattering and tough. They also fit me perfectly.

They are cool to wear in the summer and protect you from the sun, and warm enough to wear in the fall. I plan to buy another pair once the brighter colors are back in stock. Love these so so much!
Favorite climbing pants ever!
I am ridiculously enthusiastic about these pants. They are very thing I need in a trusty pair of climbing pants: sturdy, deep functional pockets, flexible, narrow at the ankles (cute ankle cuffs that snap), low volume at the waist for easy harness wearing, and super comfortable.

A product so nice I bought it twice
After a month of near constant wear I decided I should get a 2nd pair because I LOVE these pants.

They both look great as a dressed up casual and perform functionally on extended desert camping trips and ... Read Moreagainst the sandpaper-like walls of my local climbing gym. Being a bit shorter I go for a rolled cuff on the size 8 that still looks real nice. My only issue thus far has been a loose thread which has caused a small hole in the left pocket, but it looks be be a simple repair when I get around to it.
I don't even climb and they're amazing
I wear these mostly as a cover-up on my short bike ride to play beach volleyball, and I love them! I am 5'8", 145 lbs with more thigh/butt than stomach, and the waistband is surprisingly a bit tight for me in the 4. Still love them but would consider sizing up when I inevitably buy them again in a different color.
The Best Pants EVER
I always have trouble finding pants that fit because I have a small butt, but these are AMAZING! I am typically between sizes 2 and 4 in pants, and got the 4.

I haven't climbed in them yet because up until now it's been too warm, but I know these will hold up to the test as everything else Patagonia. If these go on sale I might buy another pair!
Snap broke off
I have two pairs of these pants. I loved the first ones so much that I decided to buy another pair in another color. The second pair that I got, one of the snaps at the ankle broke off after the first use. I love them but for that reason they don't seem very durable.

I love that these don't have any buttons or zippers but fit snug enough that I am not pulling them up all day like some leggings. They are lose enough to be comfortable but not so baggy that they aren't flattering. I love these so much that I bought a second pair.

I also really love the big front pockets, thank you Patagonia for making functional pockets in womens pants! My only request is a zippered thigh pocket thats big enough for a phone.
