Ms Performance Straight Fit Jeans - Regular

April 30, 2021


Comfortable and looks great

April 28, 2021

Absolutely perfect jeans

These jeans have become my go to jeans for everyday wear. I have a slim build at 5'8" and 140 lbs and the slim straight fit is perfect in that its not too slim nor too loose. The leg opening is spot on too - again not too narrow or too wide. To top it off, the stretch makes these super comfortable. I typically wear a size 28 waist and the... Read More size 28 for these jeans are perfect. My only complaint is that I would like to see some other colors!

These are my third pair

These are my third pair now. They’re so comfortable and fit well. Hardwearing, and still look great. Would love more colour ways. A great alt for jeans all the time.

April 6, 2021


These denims are stretchy, which is good, but my normal size was too big. They are also a bit snug in the legs for me, but the stretch makes it tolerable.

Perfect pants!

Comfy and Rugged Feeling

I enjoy these jeans alot. They are very comfortable and they feel tough and strong. My only complaint is that they fit a little odd and can feel a bit awkward at times.

April 3, 2021

They Run Huge

Obviously I made a mistake, these jeans are so baggy, my error. Had to donate them as I looked foolish in them.

Hi Jeffrey, we are very sorry to hear that these were too large on you. In the future, please feel free to [return or exchange]( anything that doesn't work out.

April 3, 2021


In general, good. A little too stretchy. The waist stretches out during wear and makes it almost manditory to wear a belt.

Hey there, thank you for leaving us a review on our Performance Straight Fit Jeans. We're sorry to hear of the stretch out! If you think a size down could help, feel free to get started on an exchange [here](

My second pair

This is my second pair, The first pair wore like iron and fit well, i was glad to see you were still selling them

March 29, 2021

Great fitting jeans

This is by far the best pair of jeans I have ever purchased. The stretch the fabric has is just the right balance between fit and comfort.

March 28, 2021

Great product

Very good product

Great fit.

Wonderful dark indigo

These jeans are nearly perfect. A tiny bit more stretch and a tapered leg option would be a nice-to-have but these have become my go-to jeans.

March 27, 2021

Great fit

These jeans fit well. Only suggestion would be to add a small amount of stretch. Hard to find jeans at 38 waist w/o baggy legs- these are perfect. Thanks

March 27, 2021

Good title

These jeans are great. They look good, I love how they feel and sit on me. I love the deep colour. They are also good as they stretch which most jeans don't but they still feel tough and like they'll last a long time. I will buy another pair when these are worn out and beyond repair.

Dont be fooled, for athletes these are skinny jeans

I'm not a huge bulky person, I'm 6'5" and weigh 200 lbs so im not small either. Patagonia Twill pants in a 36 fit me nearly perfectly, though a hair tight but these jeans fit me more like leggings despite being the same size, and they have all the stretch I'd expect from a pair of jeans designed to be skinny jeans. That sai... Read Mored, they're a great pair of skinny jeans but they're not what I expected or wanted. If you have a moderately athletic amount of meat on your legs and dont want skinny jeans dont buy these.

Comfortable but Poor Durability

These are the most expensive jeans I've ever purchased. Unfortunately, after a year,the amount of wear was too much. I would wash the jeans in cold water inside out, but that didn't seem to help. Washing seems to accelerate wear. Now the legs have holes in them and there's soon to be a hole by the zipper.

Comfortable, but...

These really are some of the most comfortable jeans I have owned, unfortunately, I just don't think they are worth the price. The cut is perfect for me; fitted at the thighs and straight to the cuff. The fabric stretches and is breathable, making for a really comfortable pair of jeans to wear in the summer. So, here's what I don't li... Read Moreke. I prefer a darker, more classic denim color. I don't hate the color, it actually looks nice, it just wouldn't be my first choice. If that was the only problem, I would buy them again anyways. More importantly, they wear out really quickly. First my pockets fell apart; and I was planning on taking them in for a repair when both thighs split open because the fabric had worn thin. For the price, I'd like to get a lot more life out of my jeans. Other jeans I have bought at last about 4 times as long, are pretty comfortable, and cost about a quarter of the price on sale.

February 24, 2021

One pair per year, destroy, repeat

I buy one pair of these a year and wear them as my only pair of jeans. They're comfy, decent fitting, and usually last up until the 10-month mark when the crotch (which has slowly been wearing through and becoming threadbare) blows out spectacularly. At this point it's only your dignity and the size of the hole in the crotch as it grows t... Read Morehat helps you time when to buy the next pair. Be great to see some kind of reinforcement or extra stretch, or creative cut to help alleviate this wear point. Very thankful Patagonia does 33's.

Good Fit

Most comfortable jeans I've worn.

February 18, 2021

great jeans

Love the fit. Slim but not skinny. The waist size is accurate, but the length is generous. Normally I would need Long, I bought Regular and they are plenty long enough for me (I'm 6'3"). Very comfortable and nice colour denim too although I expect that will fade after a few washes.

Bulls Eye!

Buying the right jeans has always felt like a challenge to me. Shopping for clothing I equally dislike. At the same time I am very precise about my likings. Finding this Jeans was a bull’s eye!

Quality Jeans for a fair price

Seriously hardwearing and smart jeans for a fair price. The backside is possibly not the best fitting on my skinny derriere, otherwise top marks. Thanks

January 19, 2021


Baggy in seat and legs. Also, my other Patagonia jeans, admittedly old, have buttons instead of zipper which I prefer.

January 11, 2021

Super comfortable

Ordered these because I loved my cords in the same size but the fit is different. They are looser in the butt than the cords, they are nice but I would have preferred the same fit.

December 22, 2020

Very Comfortable

I bought the jeans as part of my winter quarantine wardrobe. They are comfortable for all day wear and dog walking.

December 16, 2020

Best Jeans

Simply put, these jeans are near perfect. I love the way they start dark denim and then wear in over time, almost molding to the owner. The fit is tailored, but the stretch accommodates play outside. The seams are very tough and the small details on the back pockets, the rivets, the tri-color stitch on the coin pocket and the Patagonia logo inside ... Read Morethe cuff are well thought out. I still wear the first pair I purchased at the Patagonia Salt Lake City outlet store in 2013.

December 1, 2020

Great fit!

Love these jeans! Fit great, right amount of stretch. Will definitely be getting another pair. Highly recommend.

November 30, 2020

Great fit and very comfortable

I would defiantly recommend these jeans because they fit great and are extremely comfortable.

November 29, 2020


I knew they would bleed the indigo but dang... I think Ive lost 3 shirts and two other pairs of pants because these suckers leak. WASH THESE BY THEMSELVES. (Wash with light colors if you want a tye-dye affect)

November 18, 2020

Crotch Crunch

Didn't love the color these came in, but that would have been fine. Waist and length were very good, but these were super tight in the crotch area for me. Having to return. Looks like most folks had better luck with fit than me though.

November 17, 2020

Best Fiting Pants ive owned

Was suprized that these were so conforbatble and i ordered online without trying them on. Will order again.

November 9, 2020

Good Quality Pants

Durable fabric though I would like to see this exact cut made in hemp fabric. Overall great pants and will purchase them again.

November 9, 2020

Well made, but not a fit for me

These jeans have a very long rise, so if your pants tend to settle down to your hips like they do on me, there may be a lot of bagginess in the seat and crotch area. The seat seems to be cut big too, which adds to the extra volume. The result is that these jeans do not fit well on my rather slender frame. On the positive side, I like the straight c... Read Moreut of the legs, and the fabric seems to be high quality. I can use them for lounge wear. I normally dont buy pants online, but took a chance this time because of coronavirus concerns. Next time, Ill try them on in the store, although I note that the Patagonia shop in Washington D.C. appears to be closed.

Response from Patagonia
December 9, 2020

We appreciate your comments about the fit and we are sorry to hear that these didn't quite work. If you decide you don't want to keep them for just lounge wear, please feel welcome to [send]( them back.

Great Fit

The fit on these is great. Not too restrictive and breath well. Thanks Patagonia!

September 8, 2020

A great label for anything you need to attack in the city.

It's with the effort fighting a slow internet connection to have the chance in reaching others here about these Patagonia jeans. Have had my share of different jeans over the many years, and these fit, look, and act better than anything before. This makes three pairs, neatly folded on my clothing shelf, and you would have to pry them from my... Read More greedy hands if you want a closer look. The color is true to the picture, it is a mild amount of stretch, and the logo label on the back is the same color as the jeans; perfection.

Fit just right, the 36 waist true and the regular length perfect for 6/1"height

July 13, 2020

Love it but required alterations

If youre a size 29 waist size up to 30. Inseam length is not accurate. The guide says its 30 inseam but both pairs of different waist sizes Ive ordered were around 34 inseam. It wasnt a retailer error either since the tag said short on both. No points deducted for this, but they border on regular fit for my body type. The lower half of the legs w... Read Moreere very baggy. It may have been due to the mismeasurement of the inseam. I had to get it tapered. Additionally, they do not feel like jeans. The material is thin, but durable. So take that as you will. No points deducted for this either, just something to note. Otherwise, it is very versatile for work, casual, and light hiking.

July 5, 2020

Everyday pants

Great pants. These are my daily wear pants. With the added stretch material they wear out a little faster than straight denim, but they still last a reasonable amount of time. I just wore out my 2nd pair and bought a 3rd. When these wear out I'll be back for another set.

Great but one serious design flaw

These jeans are my favorite jeans. I wear them nearly everyday and they are extremely comfortable. Not that durable because of the mixed fabric but thats the trade off you make I suppose. One serious design flaw I have noticed is that the pockets are incredibly weak. If you keep keys, flashlight, phone wallet, etc in them youll get holes in them p... Read Moreretty soon. I find that Ive been going to Patagonia for repeated repairs until the seamstress decided to reinforce the pockets with thicker fabric. That definitely did the trick!

Some of the best pants I own

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

I bought two jeans and got them within two days. Fit perferctly after using the fitting aid.

Good but needs a few adjustments

I've owned these jeans for about a year now and wear them on a very regular basis. First off, the fit is good but not the best. Like many other reviewers have commented, the waist is a little tighter than expected compared to the rest of the pant. Regarding durability, I just developed two holes in the crotch area, and the front of the pock... Read Moreets as well as the seams in the crotch are wearing down as well. I wear them a lot and do pretty active things with them, so it's not unheard of for a pair of jeans to wear out in a year, but I was honestly expecting some more durability out of them for the price paid. I think that if the denim weight were increased a bit it would help to make the pants more durable.

Men’s jeans

Fit perfectly and amazing quality.

March 3, 2020

Excellent Jeans, better size selection wanted

I love these jeans, even with the just-shy of perfect fit. The only reason I do not give 5-star is due to the size selection. If I could get 0.5-inch longer leg and 1-inch off the waste they would be perfect in every way.

February 24, 2020

Nice jeans but needed 34,34

Nice jeans but needed 34,34 not 34,32 just too short

High quality but very small in the hips

Materials and stitching are great but fit is very small, especially in the hips. I went up a full size from my other Patagonia jeans and they are still too small in the hips and almost too big in the waist. None of my other patagonia pants fit like these.

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

Such an important mistake on otherwise well-made jeans.

I bought a pair in 2016 and they are still going strong as my "go-to" jeans. Super comfortable and stretchy. These are what I'd call slim fit jeans except without the taper below the knee. I just ordered a new pair 11/2017 in a smaller size (32x32 at 5'11 160lbs) and the fit is still great. Plenty of stretch in these jeans. Heav... Read Morey enough to not feel like khaki pants,but light enough to wear during moderate summers.

These are better than plain cotton jeans in every way. They're lighter weight,stretchy,softer,moisture wicking and they shed rain. Gone is the limited range of motion and heavy,abrasive feel of traditional jeans - buy a pair of these and you will never go back. I got the blue straight leg ones in a 32 inseam (I'm 5'10" with long... Read More legs) and I love them so much that I immediately bought a grey pair. The straight leg is a moderate skinny jean - not skin tight but not at all baggy.

Great pair of jeans!

Slim straight is perfect description. Love the dark denim color.

June 26, 2017


I bought these a few weeks ago to have a second pair. I've had my previous pair for almost 2 years and wear them day after day. From commuting on bike,to bouldering and on dinner dates with my girlfriend,these pants handle it all and look stylish! Can't recommend them enough!

Best fitting jeans I've ever had

I bought my first pair in Indigo and liked them so much that I bought another pair in Gray. They just have a perfect fit for me (5'11",175lbs,big butt for a white guy,I got the 33x32). The natural stretch built into the weave makes them easy to bike to work in,they're not tight through the thigh,and they have a nice taper towards the... Read More ankle. The Regular length is a bit long for me,but they hold the cuff fold so well that I'm probably not going to worry about getting them hemmed. I wish they came in more colors.

Awesome all-day pants

These pants feel awesome and have plenty of stretch. You need to like "skinny jeans" to pull these off.. they feel a bit like jean spandex (I say that in a good way). You can hit the climbing gym right after work with these bad boys.

Great Jeans

I bought these from the Patagonia store in St. Paul and have really enjoyed them. The durability is great and the added stretch is very nice for active wear.

I didn't take them off for 5 days.

Okay I admit I did take them off to change my underwear but other than that,I'm not kidding. I slept in them as well. This is a pair of jeans that you can run in and then wear to work. Truly versatile and comfortable. I'm wearing them right now... :)

Amazing jeans,slightly inconsistent tailoring

I have been trying for probably 10 years to find a pair of Patagonia jeans that fit well -- this is finally the pair. Most Patagonia jeans were awkwardly tailored,at least for me,which has been frustrating because I am a very typical size and shape...e.g.,levis 511 fit great on me. After years of trying and failing to find some Patagonia jeans that... Read More I could actually wear,these are finally the ones. The fit is great -- tight fitting,yet stretchy and really fluid for active motion. I love everything about them (fit,color,materials,manufacturing process). Great for work and bouldering. I would give them a 5 star rating if the tailoring were more consistent -- I bought a second pair shortly after the first pair (exactly the same size) and the second pair doesn't fit quite as well as the first -- noticeably looser in the thighs. Try them on in the store to avoid that web purchase pitfall.

Most Comfortable Jeans you'll ever wear.

I own both the dark blue and forge grey jeans in 33s. The dark blue ones fit perfectly. However,the forge grey ones were embarrassingly tight. I thought they would stretch out a bit like my dark blue ones,but they did not,so I just sent them back. But other than that,if you don't mind a tighter looking jean,you will never buy another pair from... Read More anywhere else for a lifetime. These are the best!

Inconsistent fit,but one of my fave pairs of jean

I bought these in Forge Grey from a local retailer and they quickly became my go to pair of jeans for every weekend adventure. I got to love the fit,the color,and the quality of the pants. I say "got to" because,as others have mentioned,these are tight. I'm usually a solid 34 waist,and depending on the brand and cut can go down to 32... Read More. I had to buy these in a 36 to get them to fit like pants rather than running tights. As a result,the waist is huge,like I could fit a softball between it and my belly,but the rest of the fit is perfect. Weird,but it is what it is. I liked them so much,in fact,I bought a second pair online from in Dark Denim in the same size. I don't like them as much for two reasons. First,the color is a vibrant dark denim,like real bright,almost purple. Second,they fit different and are slightly smaller in all facets. Same size,same materials,same manufacturer,and yet they are noticeably smaller and less comfortable. Lessons learned: size up,get a belt,and avoid dark denim unless you like a bright denim. Really bright.

Fits small,too stretchy

As many others have observed,these jeans fit small/slim. If I were to buy my usual waist size (34) they'd fit like "man jeggings". Fortunately going up to 35 gets me a decent fit. I find these jeans a bit too stretchy. Before Patagonia brought these out a few years ago they made jeans with less spandex and a bit looser fit (imagine ... Read Morea levis 501 with a bit of stretch). I wish they'd bring those back. They were perfect! Being over 50,I feel like a bit of a hipster poser when I where these skinny jeans. All that being said,I did just buy my second pair.

Weak button,incredible jeans.

Easily the greatest pair of Jeans i've ever owned. Not exactly water resistant when bike commuting but extremely quick drying so i'll let it go. 32x32 fit right with a little stretch. Got the button caught on something and it popped right off,be careful. Easy fix

January 12, 2017

I just ordered another pair!

These have instantly become my favorite jeans. Great fit and a bit for stretch make the so comfortable. And my girl loves them on me!

January 11, 2017

Great jeans

I bought this pair in addition to the blue version. I did notice these seem to fit a little tighter,but that is not really an issue for me. These are pretty much the only jeans I will wear,the breathability and flexibility are game changers.

January 11, 2017

New Favorite Pair of Jeans.

Bought this in late 2016. The jeans stretch well and are very comfortable. I also really enjoy how they feel and look on me. If you're looking for some new comfortable jeans to wear around I'd highly recommend these. Only negative is the high price point.

December 13, 2016

Awesome jeans,just wish they'd change one thing..

These are some of the best jeans I've ever owned. They're incredibly well made,with high stitch-counts,and a great denim. I've worn them weekly for over a year and they're showing hardly any signs of wear. Even on the inside of the thigh which always wears through first,these hardly look scuffed at all. They're also a nice ... Read Moredark blue still,though they may have faded slightly from the original. Patagonia has also nailed the fit,not all baggy and sloppy,but not too slim either. The slight stretch in the denim helps. My only complaint is the feminine looking bright stitching across the back pockets. Not a fan of it at all,and I wish Patagonia would get rid of it all together,or make the thread the same color as the jean. Would also love a few more washes/colors to stock my closet with.

Go for a bigger size

Reading the reviews helped me find the right size and fit. I normally take 32 so I tried 34. It just fit standing up but was tight in the legs. So I tried 36 and it was just a bit big but I bought it. I had a felling it would just shrink a bit and it did. The legs are not too tight either. I just wished they were design to be low waist.

Very tight fit.

Thees jeans are of fantastic quality but they are very tight! So tight they are borderline yoga pants tight. I know it says slim fit but I didn't know it would be that tight. If you like tight pants,these are perfect.

Best jeans ever but...

I love these jeans. They are incredibly flexible,dries quick,and they look good! My only qualm with them is that the crotch wears out pretty quick when cycling.

Might be the #1 jean made in world history

True Patagucci. No,I'm not kidding. They are breathable,flexible,and look and wear like a 500+ dollar product from Dolce,or TF. But that being said,they are made to take a beating. They truly enjoy getting dirty as much as they clean up. Where have they taken me? Trekking across rocks and rugged 10,000 ft high peaks of Tahoe with ease or a... Read More casual bike ride through town. They have your vacation covered,from a day tour and countryside exploration in Napa,to sitting at a posh 5-star hotel in London enjoying an espresso or reading a book by a stream. These might be the only jeans you'll ever need. They have the ideal balance of a movable fit and are loose enough to feel comfortable in any occasion. 10 of 10 to Patagonia's design team. The thin material makes them breathable,however,if you plan to wear them for a winter hike I highly recommend you purchase a thin pair of capilene underwear for an ideal match. Enjoy!

September 21, 2016

LOVE. Wear them all the time. Look sharp,comfy.

Bought these a month ago and almost literally haven't taken them off. Look sharp like jeans,super comfy like sweat pants,stretchy enough to rock climb in,and step over the baby gates all over our house! These are definitely SLIM fit - I went a size up,and you gotta be ok with tight looking fit - if looking for baggy look this ain't it.

Not a big guy,~ 140 and 5'6" but wow these are tight. I guess that might be the style,but these have to go back.

I have been working in outdoor retail for the last 4 years. I've tried the Patagonia straight fit jeans before but the addition of the wicking polyester has made all the difference for me.

Fantastic jeans

I love these. Period. I bought them two months ago and the first week traveled for a ski trip. Wore them every day after getting off the slopes. Fantastic fit, movement, style and feel.

Patagonia rocks

I have muscular athletic thighs,and I feel like these pants still fit great. I fill them out pretty good. The stretch is great,I was worried that if I ordered a pair of pants without stretch,that they may constrict some movements. So I gave these a shot and I really think they are worth it.

Great but they hold onto odors

I've put these jeans through the wringer for about 6 months -- I climbed throughout New England in the fall, bouldered in Tennessee/Georgia/Alabama in the winter, and sport climbed in Arizona in the spring. They've held up well. There's minor abrasion on the seat, but otherwise they're fine. I have one issue with these -- they h... Read Moreold onto odors more readily than pure cotton denim. The synthetic stretchy fibers in the fabric won't let go of odors even after repeated washes.

Good jeans with room for improvement

This is third iteration of Patagonia jeans I've owned and they are the best so far. They're not as baggy,which even the straight fit jeans are. However,these have a higher rise. Even though both jeans say the are at the waist and a regular rise,these are nearly an inch higher. That's getting into mom jeans territory. For me the highe... Read Morer rise means they fit tighter at the waist,so thankfully they stretch. It seems to me that for a performance jean,it makes more sense having them wear just below the waist. It would be welcomed for cycling so that the waist doesn't cut into you as you're bent over. Speaking of cycling,the leg hem does fold up nicely to avoid it touching the bike chain.

Great everyday jeans

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

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

Awesome denim

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

These jeans are a trifecta of epicness, the fit is spot on (I'm 6'4" 230 lbs and I bought 2 pair of 36" x 32") , they are very durable and the breathable / stretch denim feels fantastic and is non restrictive. I highly recommend buying some!

Great pair of pants

The best pair of denim I have ever owned. I can't find anything wrong with them. I'll address the fit up front, since a good majority of people have griped about that in other reviews. I'm 6ft 160lbs and I got the 32x32, which was perfect. The waist fits no differently than any other pants I own. Also, these are slim fit, just like i... Read Moret says in the fit guide and product description. That being said, try them on before buying. They make different fits for a reason. The stretch is definitely more of a highlight than I expected; subtle, but enough for hiking and climbing. Overall, a great pair of pants.

Favorite jeans

These are, hands down, an excellent pair of jeans. I'm 6'1, 190, and these jeans (got the 32x32) fit me better than anything in my closet, in part because of the stretch on the quad area.

I was initially very skeptical of these new Patagonia jeans. I wear selvedge denim and was wary to buy "stretch" jeans. I've worn these Patagonia jeans for a few months now.

They provide a flexibility that selvedge denim does not. I'm interested to see how they wear over time. I've really only worn them around town so far. But they are flexible enough to wear doing anything; hiking, climbing, commute cycling, frisbee tossing, etc. I did get caught in a huge rain storm and they did bead the rain very well. Overall, they are a super comfortable jean that is a solid addition to your fall lineup.

Great material, terrible fit

Patagonia, I want to buy more of your clothing. If only you could figure out sizing. I'm 5'11", 170lb, athletic. And, friends, these jeans are TIGHT. I play a lot of soccer, so my upper legs are big. I'm used to having to jump up a size or two. But these are just about skin-tight, even jumping up two sizes. And not just on the... Read More legs. Ankles? Snug. Calves? Snug. Knees? Snug. "Well", you say, "they are the Straight cut, for lean to medium body types." Well, allow me to rebut. I have a pair of the regular Straight cut jeans, and those are practically baggy in comparison. The Performance jeans are Franz Ferdinand tight. The capper is, Patagonia ALWAYS has this problem. Guys, I love your stuff. When other stuff wears out, Patagonia is my go-to. But it is SO FRUSTRATING to size. Sometimes Slim means athletic, sometimes it means ultra-marathoner-skinny. Sometime Regular means roomy, sometimes it means must-have-a-large-beer-belly-to-wear. I asked an employee about this. She said she ranges between a Large and an Extra Small. This is why I never order anything Patagonia online: I don't want to order 5 different sizes, only to find none fit. Figure out sizing, and you will have this and many other winners.
