Protect the ocean so it can protect us

Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.

Ms R1® Pants

Kinda Large
November 8, 2023

Good layer

Bought these for a late October fishing trip on the Kenai River (AK) with temps in the 30s. I’m 5’11’’ 180 and bought a medium, which worked for one more layer underneath and great under waders but a bit snug as stand alone - I don’t hang at any fishing lodges but if I did not sure that would be the best look. Look forward to having these for under... Read More bibs when skiing with kids this winter.

So comfortable! Have used them fir years. This is my third pair

August 4, 2023

Full of holes!

These pants are comfortable, but within the first year, several holes have appeared, on the buttocks area and at the pocket where my keys are. Whatever they're made of, it's not very durable

Hi Ciaran, thank you for submitting this review. We're sorry to hear your R1 Pants didn't hold up better! We would consider this a warranty issue, and we are reaching out to you about options for returning them.

Warm and comfy lounge pants

Warm and comfy pants while lounging around in my cabin. Perfect fit and length.

April 27, 2023

Solid pants

Simple piece with only the necessary elements nothing wasted. Performs well, true to the Patagonia ethos. I found the inseam to be too long for me personally, as with other items and I usually purchase the short inseam items if available.

Long in the legs

I love these pants, but they pill

This is my second pair of these pants, I love them for just bumming around the house. The first I had for a few years before holes started appearing in the butt. I bought these new ones about two weeks or so ago to replace my holey ones and there's already some major pilling. If they could figure out how to fix that, it would 100% be 5 star.

March 18, 2023

Comfy all day pants

If they only made these in a shorter length they would be perfect. Great material.

February 16, 2023

Super warm and comfy

R1 fleece is the best. So warm and comfy for chilling at home or layering up on super cold days riding lifts. The waistband isn't super tight but it does have a drawstring for us tall skinny folks. Wish they made these in a long so I could order the correct size for my waist. All in all I'm willing to sacrifice the perfect fit for the qua... Read Morelity and comfort. I do wish they had a back zippered wallet pocket so I could wear these all the time. I still recommend them.

I want to be buried in these pants

This is easily the most comfortable garment to ever grace my legs. Runs very slightly small, but it is by design and fits very well. Worth every penny.

January 17, 2023

Super comfortable

I wear these all winter for casual wear: In the house, shopping, walks (down to about 40). I avoid wearing them if cold and windy for the wind goes right thru them.

Ms R1 pants

super comfy really, can't stop wearing

November 19, 2022

Excellent comfort, fit and quality

At 195cm and 85kg the L size is perfect. Can easily stretch more, but I like it the way it is. Also length is perfect, my previous joggings were short on the bottom, these are longer.

Amazing Dad Dad Pants x2

Think I wrote a review before, but the hive mind requested I do another. Amazing dad pants. So amazing I bought a second pair. Highly recommend.

Very nice material and fit

Everything fits perfectly, great for hiking

I'm a large size in

I'm a large size in order a large size, but it turned out I really needed an extra large and the extra large was out of stock

Amazing House Pants

Needed some dad pants in my life and for the winter. These pants did not disappoint. Outer material is very similar to the military "waffle tops". Inside has a fleece material. Not as soft as I thought it'd be, but its great nonetheless. Definitely plan on buying a second pair soon. For sizing. I'm 6.1 with a waste of 33 inches... Read Mores. The pants land perfectly on my heel, making them the perfect fit. Waste band is elastic, so you got a lot of wiggle room depending on dad bod since dad bod mileage may vary.

Quality, comfortable, fit not quite consistent

I bought the R1 Fleece Pant as a warmer option for around home, camp and training. Quality is superb as expected and they are very comfortable. At 5'9" with a 32" waist I found the Medium to be perfect on the waist but too long in the leg. Opted to keep them because I love the product and Small would be too tight. But run them with... Read More a double turn-up which is not ideal. Would prefer a more tapered leg as the straight cut is a little flappy. It also means they're not ideally suited to active wear. Worn as a mid layer underneath an overtrouser there's a bit too much fabric. Best suited to casual use.

6'= medium

Bot a Large- returned as it was way too L. Medium is perfect.

April 5, 2022

Most comfortable sweats I own

These pants are incredibly soft and very comfortable. Great for a thermal base layer, or while lounging around the house. My only complaint is that they started to pill in the inseam after less than a month of wearing them.

April 2, 2022

So nice bought twice!

I liked these comfy pants so much that I bought a backup pair. I run in these, hike, wear at work, walk the good boy and laze around the crib. Love them!

March 30, 2022

Comfort Unmatched

I buy Patagonia because the products are as high quality as any products I purchase. These R1 are my second pair. The first pair, large, are still perfectly wearable after many years but Im smaller and the new pants are medium. Warm and most comfortable as are all my Patagonia clothing.

March 10, 2022

Insanely comfortable

These are probably the most comfortable pants Ive ever owned. Will likely order another pair. Its embarrassing how much I wear these.

February 7, 2022

Nice cool weather fleece-lined pants

Good fabric and construction. Pants feels warm when putting them on. Keep your legs warm in cool but not cold weather. Pant side pockets are not deep or zippered so with lying down or with vigorous activity contents of pockets may fall out.

Ridiculously comfortable

About 20 years ago while working in a Outdoor store in England I purchased a pair of R something grid fleece pants and still have them and wear them several times a week. I decided I wanted a new pair, not that there is anything wrong with the old 20 year pair. They are still going strong. What sold me on them is there lightweight to warmth to ever... Read Moreyday use nature. I seriously use these for work, walking the dog, running, and hiking. The are easy to throw in a bag for travel they fit super well and hold up in multiple washes and they are just so darn comfortable. Only negative is the waistband ties are just a little too short and so when you pull on the waistband to slip them on the ties are in danger of popping a turtle on you, meaning they disappear. Does Patagonia have a longer waistband tie that could be a replacement for this mild but none the less annoying issue? Bottom line though is these are awesome pants.

January 9, 2022

Comfy and warm

Super soft/comfortable pants and even nice enough to be able to wear them as an outside garment

January 4, 2022

Buy these now

Great pants. Buy 2 pair.

December 31, 2021


I'm 6'2 & weigh 170lbs and purchased size medium, but they were too short. So I then purchased size large and the length is fine, but the waist is too big. I suggest Patagonia offer the R-1 pants in Short, Regular & Long lengths to remedy this issue. Thank you.

December 12, 2021

Perfect, comfortable, typical Patagonia

Just like everything else from this company, its absolutely perfect.

November 30, 2021

Perfect for around the house or under waders.

I like these pants so much Ive worn out 2 pair and on my third pair now. Super comfortable. My go to leisure wear. Great under waders.

November 18, 2021

Comfort +

I've been wearing R1 for a number of years, and I am convinced they are the most comfortable and practical layer/active pants around. Warm when needed when layering for fishing or skiing, yet also comfy on their own. With a textured/smooth finish, I've even worn them to meetings.

Favorite sweatpants, except for the pilling

Owned these for about two years now. Super comfortable and the fit is perfect: not baggy, tapered just enough without being tight. My only complaint is that, as others have mentioned, these pill really badly, like even after the first wash. I've only worn them casually, have never put them in the dryer, and have only washed them according to t...

A must have in your arsenal

Can't think of a better layer under your waders, period. Super warm, comfy, and can stay in them after a long day of fishing. You will not be disappointed.

May 11, 2021

Very comfortable, fits well, keeps me warm

I wear these as my day-to-day trousers when I'm working from home; they're super comfy but still make me feel like I'm not just lounging. They're very comfortable to wear indoors throughout the day, and for running errands outdoors; they seem to adapt well to warm and cool conditions. The legs run a bit long for me, but otherwis...

May 1, 2021

Extremely comfortable

These are definitely the most comfortable pants I own, the stretchiness helps on that front. Great under waders or for the long car ride home. I'm 5'9" and the length is good for me. I turn them inside out when I wash them, which I think helps reduce pilling.

April 21, 2021

Pilling within hours

Very comfortable however had started pilling within a few hours so not sure what it's going to be like after even 1 wash

Worst Patagonia product I have ever owned

I have a lot of Patagonia stuff and this is the only product that I hate but wish I could love. Within 2 months, the fabric is beaten to death. Im not doing anything strenuous with these pants, in fact these past two months I was recovering from neurosurgery. Yet it looks like I rubbed them against a cheese grater. I dont get it. My R1 and R2 techf... Read Moreace dont look like this after years of wear. Yeah, I get that we are rougher on our pants but the worst wear is on my thighs and the only thing that consistently touches my thighs with these pants is my laptop or sheets. Please fix this Patagonia and Ill buy 5 of them. This will be my third return of the R1 bottoms. Its even more frustrating because Patagonia has no similar product for me to replace these with. Also Im 61.5 tall and the mediums are 1-2 too short: Anklet socks expose my ankles. They are not windproof however if you wear them with the capilene air baselayers they are virtually windproof and incredibly warm! Also, my girlfriend would love a female version of this because according to her both the XS and S doesnt flatter her bum so she never wears it. le sigh

I've been buying these fleece pants for over 20 years and they are great. Very comfortable and functional. My only wish is that they offer more colors other than grey.

Comfort Plus

These are the most comfortable and long lasting pants made. Perfect for campfires, camping on the river and cool evenings. Lounging and apres ski wear at home after a day on the slopes. I cant live with out them.

I would take one size lower than the recommended size on this one.

Super comfortable, not bulky, warm. Please offer more colors because i'd like about three more pair. :) Plan to wear them WFH, hiking, and as underwader layer.

Best pants ever/ but they are not perfect.

I love these pants. They are comfortable, warm, and versatile. They can be used like sweat pants, in terms of what you would wear them for. They are not dress pants. But they are athletic and comfortable. They have to pockets and a draw string in front. I use them to hike and to go around in a casual way. They can be worn underneath as a base layer... Read More or a mid-layer. I use them under my snow shot pants as insulation. If it gets really cold (New England), I will wear a base layer, these pants as mid-layer and a shell over them. They are great. The run loose fitting and relaxed. For the tapered look size up. The only draw back, as some reviews state, they did start pilling fairly fast. I did return them and got a new pair. I put them to use right away. If they pile, I will use a fabric shaver because they are that good. Hope this helps.

Warm and Comfortable

Great pair of pants! Was looking for something warm but casual for winter. These pants are perfect

January 26, 2021

Nice, comfortable pants for in and outside

The R1 pants are everything i hoped for. Size L fits me perfectly (I'm 192 cm) and I wear them almost daily since I'm working from home. Also if I go for my walk, the fit, feeling and protection from the Dutch weather is really good!

Fantastic all round pant

I have been debating buying these for a long time now and I am glad I did.

These pants are extremely warm and super comfortable! They pack down surprisingly well and are pretty light. However, dont get these pants with the idea that they are anywhere near technical.

Quick to pill

First, these are extremely comfortable and fairly warm. However, they started pilling after just 8 weeks of around-the -house wear and not even in a high friction area. I've started to wash inside-out to see if that will show down further pilling.

Men's R1 - Great pants.

I got these pants for my husband for a casual wear at home and running errands on cold days - he loves them. The pants are well made of thick fleece material, warm, and comfortable. Front pockets are a big plus. Please, can you make a women's version of the pants?

Good underlayer

Use as an under layer when skiing and on their own for my evening walk with dog. Perfect for both.

Good for purpose

I'm 6'0" athletic build. They fit great at the waist but are long. Same great R1 fleece as my other pieces. A bottom cuff would help with length. Would recommend a fly. Tough to do what you need to when layered under other pants/shell.

Warm. Lounging.

These are relatively warm for late fall. Probably not warm enough outside for winter as cold air will come up loose pant legs. Would be better with at least one zipper pocket. Overall, love them and would buy another pair.

My only complaint is the pocket is made from a mesh material, probably for breath ability, that is very slick and everything falls out of my pockets if I sit down or squat (I stopped to pet my neighbors dog and my phone slid out of my pocket and fell on the ground along with my keys). Other then the small slipper pocket issue, these pants are amazing.

Hi Andrew, we apologize for the irritation with the pilling, knitted garments are prone to pilling, and this style is no exception. Removing pills can help lengthen the life of your R1 Fleece Pants, plus it’s easy to do with a sweater stone. Learn about removing pills at

Love these pants

They are great winter sweats that look a little nicer - I work from home and wear them during the day, and they're warm enough to wear outside walking the dog in winter (whereas with normal sweat pants I need to put on long johns under them). The only thing is I would love more colors (blue, black, dark gray, whatever) - I would definitely buy... Read More another pair or two.

Great for around the house but. . . .

after just a wash or two the fabric shows fraying dimples along the grid pattern -- most prominently on the upper legs. So much for sustainability . . . .

Hi Sam, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're really sorry to hear about the way the pants are showing wear after only a few uses. That is certainly not typical quality of ours so you're welcome to [return]( under warranty.

Had high hopes

I own several pairs of older R1 that I wear quite a bit in the winter. They’re more like lose tights, or snug joggers with no side pockets or draw string & a zip back pocket.

My trusty R1 a bottom.

Been wearing the R1 quarter zip and R1 hoody for years and years, and finally was able to add the R1 pants to my collection. They function exactly as expected: awesomely. Comfortable, nice cut and nice deep pockets. The legs are maybe a touch wider than they need to be, but no big deal. The drawcord on the waist is a bit short though and can be a l... Read Moreittle bit of a pain to tie because of that. Also worth noting that they're starting to pill pretty quickly, but I expected that as the R1 fabric has a tendency to do that. This is a performance piece though first (I've used it snowboarding & fly fishing thus far, as well as just wearing them around the house) so I'm not too concerned about a little pilling as long as it stands the test of time, which I fully expect it to do as my R1 tops have.

cool weather pants

look great on. slim fit and true to size. great for 40 degree weather here in florida winter. out door tai chi practice and indoor yoga in a cool room. light weight and will be great for travel to cool climates. a bit expensive, even for patagonia.

Just what I was looking for, very comfortable pair of warm pants. Breathable enough to be active in too.

December 2, 2019

Perform as expected

I’ve been mostly wearing these around the house as sweatpants, and a few times under shell pants on especially cold days. They work as fleece sweatpants should. The pockets are a nice addition. No fly makes them less than ideal as a base layer, but it’s not a real problem unless I’m wearing a harness. I’ve experienced the pilling that some others h... Read Moreave mentioned, which doesn’t matter to me. But it is baffling because they are made from the same stuff as my trusty R1 shirt that I’ve worn for years on many expeditions and rock climbing trips (including offwidthing and chimneys) with almost no pilling at all. But after a few weeks of casual wearing these pants around the house I started to see noticeable pilling. But it hasn’t gotten much worse since it appeared, and like I said it doesn’t affect the use of the pants at all for me.

December 2, 2019

My favorite pants

These pants get more use than any Patagonia product I have. I've worn them as house pants almost every day for over 5 years. Bought another pair a year ago just in case they discontinue at some point. Have yet to wear the new ones but they seem identical in every way. I really can't tell that my originals have worn very much but as stated... Read More...they're primarily my inside pants. Having said that I've never hesitated to head out to the store cause they do look better than your average sweatpants.

Fitted casual pants that are surprisingly warm

Lots of positive reviews here, and I concur. I can’t speak yet to how well they’ll hold up, but with Patagonia’s lifetime warranty, that’s not really a concern. Wear them and see what they do.

Great at home, running errands, even at work if you are wearing a t-shirt or something of similar formality. Would be a spectacular yoga pant for many men or women (not bulky, good movement, not stretch pants). Good for travel in that they don’t take up loads of room and are easy to wash and quick to dry.

These are a hit, but could use some additional development to further refine

These pants are so close to being perfect for a variety of mild, casual conditions and situations. Extremely comfortable, warm without being too hot, and fit well. My only gripe after two months with them is that they started significantly pilling right in the immediate crotch area very soon after purchase and wear. I bought two pair to alternate b... Read Moreetween, and wear them often, but in thinking about the comparable R! fleece jacket I own, I didn't notice similar pilling in the analogous armpit area where fabric constantly folds and rubs against itself. So I worry that they will wear out in the crotch area far sooner than I would expect.

Love them!

I am a woman who fits better in men's pants usually because the hips aren't as big. So these men's pants in med. fit perfectly. 5'7", 150, athletic with long legs. The only gripe is that I wish the front pockets were zippered. They flare out when you bend and things fall out.

These are awesome

A friend recommended these to me a year ago and I didn't listen. Big mistake. These are my new go-to pants.

Mens R1 pants

I love that they are recycled, but would have preferred a selection of colors.. the R1 texture is not my favorite, something smoother would also fit my taste also

September 16, 2019

Super Cozy

I'm a sailboat dweller / alpinist, so these are clutch on those crisp cold mornings. The weight & pack-ability is just about right. The cut is almost perfect for me, although I wish there was a long option. I'm rather leggy, and these are the high-water side. 160lbs 6'3"

Whether you are layering for the cold or slipping into them for an evening of couch surfing, you can’t go wrong

Mens sizing too big for a petite woman

Love the style and R1 materials. I wish you made the R1 pant in women's specific sizes for the length and hips! The mens XS is still too big for me at 5'3" 130 lbs.

Read Moreplash pants when whitewater rafting or to throw on after a day skiing or snowboarding. I'm jealous of all the guys I know who own these pants and love them. If you're a guy or a woman over 5'8" then these are great. The guys have way better pant options compared to most of the women's are tights or slim cut tighter versions of the guys (i.e. woman snap-t pants are not overly realxed and ankles are tight instead of looser/straight legs and relaxed).

I've had a pair of these for a very long time and they have zippers on the side pockets. Please make them that way again and I'll buy multiple pairs. They are my go to hang around pant/layer under hunting/fishing pants/waders etc.etc. and have been on many trips. Please add the zippers back!!

They fit so well and are so comfortable, I wear them all of the time. They are sufficiently presentable to even wear to some meetings and at night. I have multiple pairs of R-1's and would like to see them offered in different colors.

Great update of very versatjle warm layer

Replaced an 12 year old pair of r1 pants. R1 fabric is great for a wide variety of cool and cold weather activities. Warm, wicks moisture, functions well when damp, easy to 'wear dry' when wet. If soaked, wring them out, put them back in, and go. Not remotely windproof, but Very warm under shell pants. I use them alone on cooler walks ... Read Moreand cold weather hiking, nordic skiing, and under a shell for winter hiking and climbing. could sub as a pair of sweatpants for cool weather running. Looser than the older ones, and 2 side pockets (same location as a pair of khakis).

If you want that base layer fit, Patagonia thermal capilene bottoms give you that, though with a lighter/not S warm grid fabric. Live the drawstring on these.

Best Pants out there -- But Need zippers

I have 3 pairs of these pants. I wear them everyday. To work, everyday things, skiing, hiking, climbing. They're incredible, but the pockets are awful. Everything falls out of them.

Pilling far too soon

I will start by telling you that I LOVE everything I have every owned by Patagonia. In October 2018 I purchased the R1 pants and new full zip R1 with hood, one week after I received the pants, they started pilling. I contacted the Customer Service and made a report. I had not worn them under Blue Jeans and had not washed them yet. They started pill... Read Moreing pretty bad, in my opinion, for something that costs as much as they do. I have now had my new R1 pants that CS sent, and now two weeks of having them, they are pilling again. I do believe if I were to wear these as a base layer, they would totally look un-presentable. I am a little disappointed, because they are so comfortable...

November 16, 2018

Great Lounge Pants!

I love these pants! They definitely have a slim cut and the inseam for the Medium is probably closer to 33" (which works great for me!) These pants use the smaller grid pattern and stitched logo similar to the old R1 jackets. Please bring back the stitched logo for all R1 products. Extremely happy with this purchase!

Best cool to cold weather pants

I’ve worn these pants in every type of weather in Colorado for a little over a year . I wear them for camping all year combined with an r1 hoody and can be toasty warm below freezing all the way down to near zero or mild temps to just stay warm . My favorite pants to wear anywhere for any reason!

Go To Pants when the weather gets cool

These are my favorite casual pants once the weather gets cool. Wear them around the house, around the campsite, walking the dog, on car trips, to the grocery & under my waders when it really gets cold. Too baggy to wear as any sort of insulating layer though. I've read complaints about pilling but haven't experienced any for myself in... Read More the past year of owning them. I was 150lbs when I bought them and down to about 142lbs now and the mediums have always been too big. But since I'm 6'2" the Smalls would be too short I am afraid. Very comfortable.

August 4, 2018

Be careful on your purchase

The pants look great out of the box. After one wear and not one wash the pants began to fray and look like they are years old. For the price you expect a much better material. Beware before you purchase.

March 20, 2018

Perfect lounging pants

Bought these in October and I've worn them at least once weekly since. A little bit of pilling on the front which is disappointing,but the pants are great for cool weather casual wear and an outer layer to ditch once I get into the gym. I love them and may get the top. They almost mimic a military waffle bottom except with loose ankles.

Great material. Very Durable. Way too long

It would be nice to have an 30 inch inseam as an option. even the XS start at 31 inches.

Warm and comfortable

I first got R1 pants back in 2003 and really liked them but the elastic finally wore out several years ago. I replaced them,but that version was almost like tights,and I am skinny.

Read Moreggier,more like the old ones I liked. Loose fitting without a cuff at the bottom is what I wanted. They do run long,even the extra smalls start at 31 inch inseam which is odd to me. I would prefer a 30. But you can get them altered or do it yourself,they are fine otherwise. I am 5'7" male,140 lbs and got a medium,anything bigger would have been too big. While expensive,these will last for ages,I still have my 2003 ones but just need to fix the elastic and there are a few holes,its wearing thin after 14 years and a hundred washes. Now I just need to put my too-tight ones on the worn wear site!

Make them for Women!

My second pair of R1 Women's pants finally are biting the dust and there is no choice for women in this weight. Patagonia,please go back to making an R1 choice for women in pants. The men's version is not unisex enough and the color is so drab. Thank you.

Great Fit...more colors!

I've had these for over a year. Turned in to my go-to base layer for skiing. Great for traveling to and from the slopes and then throw on your ski pants.

Nice fleece pants

They are comfortable and warm. I wear these in my waders over a baselayer during winter months. My feedback on these pants would be deeper front pockets and add a rear zippered pocket.
