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.

The pants are great— fabric, length (perfect for my short legs at 28” but probably this would be ‘cropped’ for people with longer legs—- and slim at the ankle). Pockets on the legs are nice too.

another weird fit

i have tried three different Patagonia pants this year and all three have really weird fit. for this one, the fit is tight in the calves area, just right in the thighs, but huge on the hips and waist area. so, if i go for a smaller size, it will make the thigh fit tight and the calves impossible. it makes it hard to find the right size with these d... Read Moreimensions. it seems that many of Patagonia pants this year (or last year) are big in the hips/crotch area and tight everywhere else. for someone who works out, my waist/hip to thigh ratio tend to be smaller. maybe i need to shop elsewhere for pants (but i love Patagucci so much!)

Nice casual pants

Im 175 lbs and 5ft 5in, I sized up from my regular 12 to 14 & I should have stuck with a 12. They are pretty loose around my mid section even with the inside cinch. As other reviewers pointed out, the ankles are so tapered as to restrict putting on & taking off. Also, the long length with tapering keeps me limited in my shoe selection - an ...

Great pants -- wish there were more colors.

I really love these pants. They are tailored/fit well, unlike many "outdoor pants" which are often baggier or the opposite end of the spectrum and are straight up tights. These are a nice middle ground. They are stretchy and comfortable. I have two suggestions: 1 - I wish the ankle had a bit more stretch to it. The first set of these that... Read More I bought, the seams came out on the outsides of both the lower legs, leaving a small hole in the fabric in each leg. That said, Patagonia has such a rad warranty program, that it was easy to bring them to the store and get a new pair. My second suggestion is to please (please!) get these in more colors. The men's version of the skyline traveler has a bunch of colors and women's currently has two (down from three, one of which was khaki, which I hope to never have to wear in my life). I've ended up purchasing the mens version of these pants in several colors, because the fabric is great and the colors (in men's) are so much better. If Patagonia made these pants in a women's version but in a color like that sedona red for example, I'd buy a pair the moment they hit the shelves.

September 29, 2022

Thought these would be the answer

I am 5'3", 145 lbs and ordered the 28" version in size 12. They fit at the waist and were a little large on my thighs, but were too long. You can't roll up the bottoms because of the ankle zipper. Had to return.

September 15, 2022

Super fun

It was very comfortable,perfectly tailored for every occasion. Wearing sports shoes by loosening the ankle zip was cool...Looked very smart.And Iwas happy to wear a brand Patagonia that cares for conserving the nature.

September 5, 2022

Practical and Versatile

I love the fit everywhere except the length. I'm only 5'2", and even the short style is about 2-3" too long. Since there is a zipper at the cuff I can't shorten the hem so I just fold the hem up, which isn't as neat a look as I'd like but works. The other benefits for the pants outweigh the length. The fit through... Read More the waist and hips is the best I've found. The multiple pockets, including the zippered thigh pocket where I can secure a passport or wallet, are excellent. The side pockets are deep enough to put my phone in without worrying about it slipping out as happens with other pants. The fabric is lightweight and perfect for travel, as it can be washed in a sink and when hung up will dry overnight. The fabric works with casual tops or with something a bit dressier, so on a river cruise I can wear a T-shirt for a day excursion and switch to a nicer top and jacket for dinner on board. As travel pants and for daily use these pants check almost every box for me.

July 16, 2022

The perfect office casual work pant

These are by far my favorite pair of pants to wear into the office. They look like professional work attire while having the all day comfort of Patagonia.

April 2, 2022

Great pockets

The material of these pants is durable--tough enough to rub up against some rocks or take the beating of kneeling but not overly heavy--and the pockets are rad! the pocket truly make these pants multifunctional and are so rare in a women's pant (large back pockets, front pockets, side pocket). Very forgiving on the sizing; short is helpful, bu... Read Moret this is a generous zero so at least there are belt loops.

The perfect pants

I bought my first pair of these ahead of hiking trips to the Rockies and Machu Picchu, and they are my favorite pants.

Great hiking pants with plenty of pockets

I got the 12 short hiking pants and they fit perfectly for me. I like the front zippered pocket for my iPhone. The other pockets dont have zippers but are deep enough that things dont fall out. I bought two pairs in different colors. Youll love them.

Skyline Travelers Pants

Purchased this pair of pants for hiking. Lightweight snd comfortable. Wish they had more zipped pockets.

July 10, 2021

Poor fit

I have a black pair that I absolutely love and they fit perfectly. I was excited to get a different color and selected the same size, but they were way too tight for comfort so I returned them.

July 7, 2021

Incredibly versatile

I am one of those people that doesn't really care about how I look, so I am notoriously know to wear my hiking outfit all the time. This piece therefore is the perfect addition to my minimalist wardrobe: it is equally fashionable in the mountains as it is at work! Practical enough for the trails, with big pockets (yes, even the small & sho... Read Morert female pants can hold my phone!) one side-zippered pocket, a DWR coating for light rain and it's even big enough to wear a merino legging underneath when it gets cold at night. Also stylish enough not be know as "the girl in the hiking outfit" at the office. Win win situation! The fit is great, I love the short version. It fits my short body (1m60) perfectly. Not too long, neither too short, and the pants sit right in the middle of my waist without lots of extra fabric around the lower belly (which is my personal problem with almost any pants: wide hips but narrow waist). Nailed it, Patagonia!

Perfect for Field Research

Love these pants! I've been using them for working in the Santa Monica Mountains during the summer and so far they have held up well. They did get a small snag on the 4th wear, but I'm constantly hiking through thick, spiky chaparral, so that was bound to happen sooner or later.

I also love that they are slightly high waisted, so they offer great coverage in the back. For reference, I am 5'3", 215 lbs and wear size 18.

May 31, 2021

Skinny legs

I should have read the description closer. I am not a fan of the skinny legs, but overall it is a good fit.

May 17, 2021

Great Purchase

Very pleased with these hiking trousers. So comfy and lightweight!

May 16, 2021

I didn't know hiking pants could be so stylish

These are a tighter fitting style but very complimentary and most importantly comfortable & easy to move in. I got the 2 petite because I am 5'2 1/2 and long waisted and the legs are still a bit long but with the zipper on the bottom it works just fine. It has all the pockets I need.

May 15, 2021

Very comfy

I have the same pair in a size larger. They do stretch as the day grows. I decided to try a size smaller. They are tight when I first put them on but stretch out to fit me fine. Order your true size if you like it comfortable right away. Order a size smaller if you want it to fit true as the day goes on.

May 7, 2021

Great Pants!

I love these pants. I was surprised to be fit perfectly by a size 10 (I usually wear 6-8), but I love the fit. (I am 56 135 lb). Very comfortable, sleek, perfect length. Fabric looks chic but feels like it will be rugged. I love the zippers at the ankles.

May 4, 2021

Comfy and attractive

Love these pants - they feel almost silky, but theyre durable for outdoor adventures. Just wish they came in black and beige as well.

May 3, 2021

Super comfortable

Stretchy, but not too much. Comfortable, a lot. Long enough but not too long.

March 23, 2021

Great gift for my wife

My wife loves these walking trousers. They are a cool slim tapered fit and the 4 way stretch makes them very comfy.

March 18, 2021

Not disappointed

Its hard to find a tech pant with a high enough rise & short length. This works. I hesitated buying these pants because I am 72, a grandma who doesnt dress like a grandma, but who doesnt want to look foolish either. These are slim, but very flattering & extremely comfortable. I hope they make more colors, I love the Kale green.

February 2, 2021

Odd fit

All my other patagonia pants are size 6 - short. Im pretty straight waist through hips and thighs. 54 135 pounds. These were loose through upper leg, but tight / fitted through lower leg / calves so they looked like jodhpurs. I had to unzip at the ankles to get my feet through the pant legs. I have toned muscles but not bulky legs. The overall fit ... Read Morejust didnt work for me. Side zip pocket on thigh too small for phone or passport.

February 1, 2021

Great Idea

These pants have great promise. However, I returned them because the fit was awkward in the knees for me. Great high waist, good through thighs, baggie at the knees, and then good through the calf. I ordered a 6 and am 130lbs- with athletic thighs and calves.

January 17, 2021

Comfortable and Good looking

I wear theses pants multiple times a week around the house and out walking and shopping. I own a size 8 and a size 10 petite. At just under 55, the size 8 fits perfectly except the length is a little longer than I like. The 8 petite was too snug so I bought a 10 petite which is perfect in every way.

January 10, 2021


These fit very nicely and are comfortable. The material is more light weight then I expected and I don't think I can hike with them in the winter.

November 23, 2020

Perfect SHORT pants

These many use pants are lightweight, but still keep me warm on hikes into the cold desert evenings. Plenty of pockets. My normal Pat size. Higher rise.

October 24, 2020

Comfortable and the right length!

Not sure how I missed when Patagonia had Short options, but its awesome. About 53-54 140 and the short 6 flits like a glove. Love the expandable zipper at the bottom! I notice a little bit of extra material in the crotch when I sit or bend over, but its not a big deal to me since Im spending most of my time walking or hiking in these.

September 5, 2020

Skyline Traveler Pants-short

I really like these pants! Was disappointed that even though they are marked short, I still had to take them to a dressmaker to make them shorter. Since there is a zipper at the bottom of each leg, I needed professionals to hem them.

September 2, 2020

Great pant!

Love the pant. Very comfortable. Great for hiking or just running around. The length is a little long for me but I am 410 so I dont expect much. Because they are narrow with a zipper at the bottom, they work. They run a little slim through the hips and thighs. Overall, love the pants!

September 2, 2020

Perfect Fit with Pockets

I have always longed for a pair of pants that are both universal in its use and style. If you are a woman who wants a pair of pants that aren't jeans that has reasonably-sized pockets (I can fit my phone in these), and can be used both outdoors and at work, I highly recommend these pants.

My size is in between 2-4, and I hover around 120lb- 125lbs as a 5 foot 1 female, and it is slim fit, so I'm so glad I sized up to 4. Usually, hiking pants are too oversized, but this fits really well. It's so comfortable, as soon as I arrived I'm not taking it off.

Am loving these pants!

I’m on my second pair of these, they are some of the most functional pants ever. At first I bought them because they make them in a short length.

Zipper at leg bottom made it very expensive to shorten pants. Prior models much more adaptable.

October 3, 2019

Great pant but still a little too long

Used this a few times on a recent trip. Material seems durable, washes up well even in a sink, and dries quickly. Zippered pocket on the right leg is large enough for my iPhone XR - a HUGE bonus when you want to keep your phone safe but at hand for photos. This would be 5 stars but for the fact that although it’s a size “S” for short, at 5’2” it’s ... Read Morestill quite a bit too long for me, and with the zipper at bottom, too costly/difficult to have hemmed. Because of the length, it doesn’t fit easily over my hiking boots, even when unzipped, but the flip side is, it kept the sand out of my boots even as I trudged through shin deep sand in the Atacama Desert! Overall a winner. For reference, I weigh 120-125 and bought the size 6S.

versatile, comfortable, great fit

I like these pants so much that I have purchased them in khaki and graphite. Great for casual days at office and on the trail. I am 5' and weigh 110 lbs, Small fits well but a bit long, but I just fold them, zip and go.

Slimming, stretchy, breathable, lotsa pockets. I really like the zipper at the ankle. I got the "short" size and at 5'6" they are plenty long for me.

Amazing all around pants!

Bought these pants several months ago and absolutely love the fit. Perfect for hiking, biking, a campfire, or a night out. Definitely the best style Patagonia pants I have bought. Only downside is the stitching by the zipper is already coming loose.
