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.

August 22, 2023

Awesome cords

These pants are so fun. I was a little worried about the fit but think the fabric will soften with time, and after a day of wear they were nicely stretched around my joints. The dark purple color is amazing and so much fun, but not too wild to keep these from being good everyday pants.

August 20, 2023

Want to love

I want to love these cords so badly! I previously bought a pair from the worn wear site, and THOSE I LOVE, those I want more of. Heres why. The fit is SO much better. These new high waisted, skinny cords are the best color ever, the fit is weird though. Im very tall, slender but not skinny. I have muscular calves - skinny pants have a tendency to m... Read Moreake my calves look massive even though theyre not. The high waist fits fine, hips were not baggy but not fitted either. I just want the old fit back with a waist that rest on hips, pant leg that hangs more naturally and the same unbeatable quality I love from Patagonia. Im going to return these since Im trying to love them but just cant seem to. When Patagonia brings back the original fit, Ill buy those, but in the meantime, Ill keep surfing worn wear for that classic design that I do love!

We appreciate your detailed feedback and we're sorry that the newer design isn't a good fit for you. We sincerely hope you're able to find the version you like on Worn Wear, perhaps by searching with the 5-digit style number located on your pants label. Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns. We'll be glad to [help](!

Very comfy!

Love these cords! Very soft and comfortable. I am between sizes so I went for the larger size based on other reviews and am happy I did, I'm not a fan of sausage stuffing my body into clothes haha. A great everyday pant and I can even get away with wearing them to work. The mid/higher rise works well for me.

July 2, 2023

Fijne broek, zit als gegoten

Ik heb de broek een maat groter gekocht omdat ik las dat de broek vrij strak zit (ik draag normaal maat 27 en heb nu maat 28 besteld). Deze maat past perfect en zit erg lekker. Hij sluit goed aan en is stretchy. Ik draag de Caliza Rock ook erg veel, maat 4, voor referentie. ;)

May 27, 2023


I love love love these. On the picture they look like a skinny fit. I choose two sizes up because I don’t like skinny pants, but I did like the look of these. Normally I’m between 26/27 but I choose a 30 and this is a perfect relaxed fit on me! Nice stretchy material too👌🏼

April 3, 2023

ran small and a tight cut

i have a pair of cords size 28 from five years ago and the cut was much more relaxed. the cut of these cords are very tight. narrow in hips, thighs and calf. they fit like "skinny jeans" but didn't have any stretch so they just feel tight even though they fit. the corduroy is nice materials and i loved the nest brown color.

March 17, 2023

Great material, and fit, but higher waistline is a no-go

I have 3 pairs of these from a few years ago and they all fit perfectly and sit on my hips, but do not fall down. The most recent pair (and I can see by the photos the newest have this feature) are 2-3 inches higher, and squeeze my stomach so that I do not wear them. In fact they are going to "Worn Wear" soon.

I am 5 foot 3 and a half (it counts) and weigh 122 lbs, not solid muscle but fit enough. These fit fine. I have smaller waist than hips and these were not too tight anywhere except maybe calves.

Wish the fit were better

I wanted to love these, but the fit is a little off so they aren't super flattering. Too loose in the thighs, but tight in the calves for me (athletic body type, 5ft 7 in, 135 lbs). Maybe I needed to size down, or maybe they'll fit better after washing.

Love corduroy fabric

Love the fabric of these cords! Pant fits are always tricky, but surprisingly these high rise pants fit at the waist and legs. Just wish they were an inch longer!

January 28, 2023

Slim fit

I love the material of these pants. They are definitely a slim fit as noted on the product description. I am a solid size 6 with a 28.5 inch waist and these are quite snug in the waist but fit nicely around my hips in the size 28. I am 5'8" and the pants skim my ankles. They do wear in nicely and kept me warm while running errands in the ... Read Morecold. I do like the high waist.

January 23, 2023

Runs really small

Received these pants as a Christmas gift. I am usually a 29 or 30 but had to go up to a 31 in these. Once I got the correct size I found the pants to be too short. Why such a short inseam on winter pants?

January 21, 2023

Too Skinny Jean-ish

Love the earlier version of these corduroy pants. There was more room in the ankle and thigh and considerably more comfortable. I hope the designers reintroduce a more relaxed fit. Otherwise, the pant has the usual great Patagonia fabric and detail.

Legs too short

I am tall and thin- the legs taper too fast/ and or are simply too short to fit properly on my legs. I compared this pair to the old pair I own. The old cut has longer legs that don't taper as much. The old pair is fabulous, the new pair cant be worn at all.

Almost there

Just tried on my new cords with high hopes because I liked the idea of a higher rise. My last pair of cords from Patagonia the waist was too low and uncomfortable to wear. So, with these new ones the waist fit is great. But, oh boy, these are skinny pants! Too skinny. Especially from the knee down, they are restrictive due to the nature of corduroy... Read More.

Fabulous high-rise, perfect-fit pant. The legs and ankle are just-right tight. Love the colors. The most wonderful pant I have had in years! Thank you!

Returned due to high rise

I might have missed it in the Item description but these definitely fit like high rise pants. I have another pair that is not high rise and love, unfortunately these went up to my belly button and was not what I was looking for.

November 3, 2022

Sizing is way off

These have been my favorite pants for years. I have them in 3 different colors, and have always ordered size 28, which fit perfectly. I last ordered them in 2019 or 2020. I love the color I recently ordered (black), but the fit is huge. It's more than the high rise...they are baggy through the abdomen. I ran them through the washer and dried t...

I will have to return them, but am unsure whether to exchange them for a smaller size (27? 26?), because I'm not sure that would fix the problem.

Response from Patagonia
November 11, 2022

Hey Moira, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We're sorry to hear that the fit of these pants have been a disappointment. Typically, we ask that exchanges for size be made within a month of purchase, and the item being exchanged out be sent back in new condition. Since you've washed and dried these pants, and they don't necessarily have any warranty issue, we recommend sending them in to [Worn Wear]( for a trade-in credit. If you need help on picking a size in the future, feel free to reach out to our customer service team and we'd be happy to provide you with measurements.

Stretchy, comfy, and a cool color

I usually wear size 4 in pants but with the mom jeans style I don't like things tight around my waist so I bought a 27 and its comfortable. I weigh 117 pounds and a little taller than 5 3 I have to cuff them theyre a little long. Really like the pants!

October 26, 2022

Nice fit and feel but..

I prefer deeper pockets. The front ones I can barely fit my hand two knuckles in. Also the legs taper to a tighter fit than I like - makes putting on ankle length and longer socks a bit challenging. Its a nice pair of pants but I probably wont purchase again for the above reasons.

October 23, 2022

Look Good Feel Good

I bought these pants for work because I needed pants that would look good with a blazer. They definitely do! And they look good with a sweater and a T-shirt and a tank. The corduroy has just enough give to fit my curves. I feel like I can get pretty active in them, definitely good for cycling and tromping around town. Mine are navy but Im going to ...

Not for women with curves

These pants were almost perfect: high rise, made of corduroy, soft, fitted leg without being completely skinny and with some stretch for free movement.

Try them for yourself.... I think they're perfect

So, I never owned the earlier version and have nothing to compare these to, but I love them. The fabric is so soft and the fit was perfect right out of the bag. I want more colors! As a point of reference, I have a "ruler" shaped body with relatively thin legs. I'm 5'9, 160 lbs and bought a size 30.

September 30, 2022

Cozy and practical-great fit!

I love these pants so much, I bought them in all available colors. I bought some last year, and they were great, but these are even better! The fabric feels sturdier, and the waist band is a little thicker and more comfortable. They look nice enough to wear to work, are super comfy and stretchy, and the narrow calf makes them super practical, great... Read More for bike commuting!

Rise is awful

Please tell me when you will bring back the originals? Why did you make these high rise? Stop following the crowd. I buy Patagonia because its a staple, not a trendy fashion statement.

Great cords

Best fitting, feeling all year long wearing cords!! I own 6 pairs and update them every year, they last forever!!

May 5, 2022

Great cords but tight in the ankle

I love Patagonias women corduroys and have 2 others from past seasons. The fit in the leg has changed since I bought the others in that the lower leg and ankle are tighter which makes it a little difficult to pull on/take off and also causes leg creep. I found myself needing to pull the lower leg down towards my ankle whenever I stood up as they wa... Read Morented to stay scrunched up above my ankles.

Love the color

In love with the color. Doesnt stretch easily so consider larger size if snug fit. Length true to size. These pants can go with so many outfits.

March 17, 2022

Very cute!

I had a previous version of the women's cords which I love, and this newer version seems to be great too!

March 2, 2022

Nice fit

I like that these are actually decently high-rise. They dont squeeze my hips or fit weirdly down the legs. Theyre comfy, soft, have some stretch, and look flattering. I got the grey and orange, and the orange is definitely more vibrant than neutral.

February 26, 2022

I love corduroy!

I bought these in a 29 because I have slim legs based on other reviews, but I still felt it was a little too tight at the top of the VERY high waist. I exchanged for the 30s. They are more comfortable, though there is a bit of extra fabric now at the top of the legs, kind of bunching in the front. I still love the pants and the color. I'm a co... Read Morerduroy lover through and through. One note, when I had the 29s, the belt loop ripped off easily. I feel like they aren't sewn on very strongly and I will be extra careful with my new pair.

bring back the old fit campaign

After wearing my old Patagonia cords for years, I have torn a hole in them. Unfortunately, reading the reviews I realize that the fit has changed and from the sounds of the new fit, they will not work for me. Ugh! Please bring back the slightly low (just below the belly button) rise and the previous fit! I have multiple pairs from 2011 - 2017 (stra... Read Moreight leg and tapered) and love them! I literally wear them all the time. The fabric, cut, and color (smolder blue) have been perfect! Timeless. I am 5'-5" 120 lbs, athletic, and the 27 fit me perfectly in the old fit. All high waist pants I have tried (aside from finding them very unflattering for me) are too tight at the waist. So adding my name to the bring back the old fit campaign!

January 28, 2022

Disproportionate waist to hips

I'm very thin with a BMI of between 17-18. The size 26, higher waist pants was really tight in the abdomen above my belly button. However, they fit perfectly through the hips and legs.

I really wanted to like these pants. The fit in the waist and hips was good, but the legs were short and very tight at the calf and ankle.

Tried and true

I have purchased several pairs of the corduroy jeans from Patagonia. I really like the comfort of corduroy, and the fit is usually great. Not baggy. But, this pair the lower part of the legs are more tight than my other pants. I'd prefer a tad more room, so they don't ride up every time you are seated.

High-waist so unflattering

I loved the previous version, like many other people who wrote reviews. The mid-waist was perfect, and so were the pockets and the feel over time. This new version is so old-fashioned and unflattering on someone with a fit yet feminine body. The burnished red color is absolutely gorgeous and I wish I could have kept it, but it makes me look 30 year... Read Mores older...

Cozy in my comfy cords!

Cords are hard to find this season so I was pleased to see Patagonia offered these. These pants fit true to size and are retaining the fit even after washing. The ink black is a versatile color - its more charcoal gray than saturated black - as is the burnished red. However, in my box of 64 Crayola colors, its burnt orange. While as some reviewers ...

Radiant Color

I love the unique, radiant color of these cords. I have not yet purchased pants from Patagonia prior to this, and so I referenced the size from my Levi's pants. The cords fit me quite well, but at times they feel rather tight and I have not yet washed them yet.

Pale in comparison to older pair

I'm joining the Bring Back campaign. I have two newer pairs that sit in my closet untouched, next to my faded, stained, ripped and repaired cords from 5 years ago that I refuse to let go. That says a lot about the previous fit (perfection. sexy and timeless) and material (less stretch). The pair from 2016 looked and felt good throughout the da...

Skinny Jeans - but Cords

These are definitely good quality fashion corduroy, which is what I was looking for. I (5'8", 135-140lbs, cis-f) bought both a size 28 and 29. I usually wear a size 6 (some brands a 4), which maps to the size 28, but so many reviews said these run small so I figured I should get both. When I first put them on the size 28 seemed too tight/... Read Moresmall and I thought the size 29 fit better. But as I wore the size 29 for a day or two, they stretched out a ton and felt a little too big on me - like most size 8's feel. I gave the size 28 another try, feeling super uncomfortable for the first day, but then after a day straight of wearing them they fit like any other skinny jean/pant (fitted but comfy). I think corduroy is particularly stiff, so you have to break them in a bit. A very long winded way to say that these run true to size - but you need to give them a few hours for the corduroy material to break in. Otherwise they're super comfortable and look great! I think now I'm going to return the size 29 as they're a little too loose looking in the knees and behind. But if you're actually looking for more outdoors workwear, then a size up might work better for you, for even more maneuverability.

I agree, fit is off

As noted by other reviewers, the fit of these pants is not great. I am tall and lean and these are too big in the waist, too tight in the calf and too short (even accounting for my height of 5 ft 8). The construction is great and I want to love them, but the awkward fit means they sit in my drawer more often than not.

very comfortable

First of all like all my many Patagonia products the workmanship is fabulous . The only problem I have with the very comfortable cords is that they are quite bulky in the butt and upper leg. Since a lot of your customers are athletic it might be a good idea to have a regular and slim fit.

Love these pants. A little weird fitting at first if you are a bit curvier in your legs than your actual measured waist. Fit snug on my legs and just right on my waist for the first couple of wears. After that, waist a bit baggy - legs just right. I have faith that with more wearing and a few washes they'll be perfect. Did I mention sooo comfy... Read More tho!

Very Comfortable

These pants are stretchy enough to be comfortable all day long. The calves are very fitted which could be a problem for some people.

Wanted to like them...

Love where Patagonia is coming from and want to support them, but not with this pant! The waist was huge and the bottom of the pant from the shin down was so tight I felt like the pants weren't able to move properly.

Too small

I have worn Patagonia cords for years. This time the fit was snug - way too tight in the ankle and waist. I could tell the fit was part of the design so I didn't try a larger size. I wish Patagonia would size the cords as they did in the past. I suspect tighter pants are in style - so I get it. Just not for me.

I like the high-rise of these cords although tight in calf

I like these pants. I think high-rise pants are the best for being comfortable and flattering. There could be some fine-tuning to this cut though. In particular, I think they are way too tight in the calf, and so the cord fabric might bunch above the calf rather than drape nicely all the way down the leg. I wish they came also in straight leg and b... Read Moreoot cut. As for color, I like the pelican and black...would also like to see charcoal.

Accurate sizing

The other reviews made me nervous that these would have odd proportions. But no. These are skinny jeans made out of corduroy. These fit like mid-high rise skinny jeans and look like corduroy pants. They're exactly what I was hoping for.

Great fit and feel - a bit short though

They fit and feel good but I wish they were a bit longer. I love these pants and get compliments on them all the time!

Rise too high

These cords used to be my favorite fit of any pants or jeans I owned when the rise was lower. They fit me like a glove! Now they hit way too high and are both uncomfortable and unflattering on me. Pretty please consider changing them back to the original rise?

legs too tight

I purchased these in size 31, gave me a lot of gapping and they went up too high, would fall down during the day all bunched up. then tried a 30, the legs were so snug I could barely get my feet in them, and were so tight on my calves, that they sort of twisted when you walk.

So Soft!

These pants are amazing. They are incredibly soft and the fit is just right. Perfect with a pair of sneakers and t-shirt.

Almost perfect

A great everyday / work pant! They are not super high rise, but just right at the belly button. The front pockets are so small, which is disappointing! Would love to have these with an inch higher rise at the waist and deeper pockets! Colors are pretty true and size true, I ordered ink black and topsoil brown.

I wanted to love these, but the rise was ridiculously high. The rest of the fit was great, but I could not get past the Steve Urkel-ness of the rise!

Love these

Nice fit and flattering.

stylish and comfy

I've been looking for a comfortable, well-fitting cord for some time--these pants fit the bill. I bought two pairs and am very happy with them--fitted, but not tight.

Comfy cords

These cords are pretty sweet. Definitely a little high waisted, but that doesn't really both me, and they fit well. I am a dependable Patagonia 6 in pants and the 28 fit perfect. I like the skinny legs- I have athletic legs and they aren't too tight; well-proportioned for the active lass.

The pants are not like the previous cords.

The new cords are to short and it is impossible to push your foot through the leg opening. The material is not of the quality I am accustomed to in Patagonia cords.The thigh portions are large; giving a wearer 'thunder thighs' Wish Patagonia would still produce quality products.

Definitely High-Rise

After reading the description, I decided to order one size up from my typical Patagonia pant size- this was a good call. I had two pairs of the straight leg cords from 5-6 years ago (back when they came in tall), and those were 28s, but with a lower rise so fit perfectly. These cords are HIGH RISE! Not in a bad way, it's just different. Sizing... Read More up meant that the legs were slim but not confining. They do stretch a wee bit during the day. Overall, comfortable and great for work.

Well constructed

While these do run a little more snug than others I own at 27 inch waist, they are well cut for bending and squatting and rest at a comfortable waist line. Great sturdy material!

These are very well made. In the past I liked that the Patagonia womens cords were organic cotton, fair trade, and beautiful colors. However, the previous design had a low rise and they were very uncomfortable and revealing when doing any physical activity. This new version has a perfect higher rise and in my opinion -very comfortable and nice look... Read Moreing. The fabric is also great -they dont stretch out and get baggy, which allows you to wear them longer before needing to wash.

Great Quality

Very nice cords that I will have for years.

Strange Fit

The lower legs of these pants were so tight I could barely get my feet through them, and they were beyond uncomfortable.

Legs too tight

I was so happy that your corduroy pants are available. However, the cut of the legs is very snug. I wish youd make a more straight legged version . I own several pairs of Patagonia cords that you sold several years ago and they are just right. Bring them back!
