Pros & Cons

Reasons to buy:

User Reviews

  • Quality material.
  • Comfortable and ability to stretch with movement.
  • Dries quickly.
  • Belt loops are larger and better-placed compared to previous models.
  • Fit is more tapered and stylish than previous styles.
  • Moisture-wicking abilities due to CoolMax synthetic material (used in conjunction with cotton.)

Expert Reviews

  • Coolmax fiber provides nice moisture management.
  • Weather-resistant DWR finish.
  • Zippers at the bottom of the pants to keep debris out and heat in.
  • All cotton is organic with a lower environmental impact.
  • DWR finish to increase water and stain-resistance.

Reasons NOT to buy:

User Reviews

  • Longer length, so may not be suitable for those with shorter legs.
  • Runs on the small side, so may have to size-up for the pants to fit in the waist.
  • Shallow pockets.

Expert Reviews

  • May not be suitable for some activities due to a tighter fit.


The Patagonia Performance Straight Fit Denim Pant for men is a comfortable and stylish pant for around town that can also be used for excursions. The weather-resistance qualities make this suited for some outdoor wear, but we don’t recommend this denim pant for intense outdoor activities in the elements.
