Good Hiking Tights

I like the reinforced areas for extra durability, and they look good on, but one star deducted because the reinforced sections don’t blend seamlessly. While the leggings material moves with me, the reinforced sections don’t and I’m aware of slight friction as I’m hiking uphill. I do like that the waistband isn’t too tight and doesn’t roll down on m... Read Moree.

Ws Pack Out Hike Tights

I live in the tropics and compete in the Adventure Racing World Series events. I bought these tights to use in the upcoming world championship in South Africa and figured they would be great to use in the veldt and thornveld. I was suprised that they did not fit as well as I had expected. I usually order small from Patagonia and that is what I ored... Read Moreerd for these but they sag around my calves - they aren't tight fitting like most exercise leggings which for racing is elemental. I also was surprised at how warm they are. Not sure they were made for warmer climates but maybe I didn't read enough. I love the material used on the rear and shins, feels like it will resist a good trek through the african wilderness. Thank you!

We're sorry to hear these Tights didn't work for your needs in your race, Melida! Thank you for sharing this feedback. You might be happier with either the Endless Run Tights, or for colder conditions the Peak Mission Tights. Please let us know if we can be of any help!

Perfect Cold Weather Hiking Hybrid Tights

I waited a long time to wear these not sure about the combo of fleece and the lighter material on the knees and other areas - and now I can't believe I waited. As the title suggests these are perfect for cold weather hiking. They pull up (no buttons or zippers under the waist of your pack) There are large pockets for your phone on the side of ... Read Morethe hip for easy accessibility, the fleece parts are warm and they are stretchy for scrambles and difficult moves. They are easy to pack and super flattering. 5*

Comfortable & Rugged

They fit perfect and were very comfortable. Love the reinforcement in the knee and leg area.

July 1, 2023

Not for the Curvy

I was excited about these - but unfortunately they did not work out. I read the reviews (focused on the fit), and I ordered what I thought was appropriate. Length, waist, etc. was great, however, if you are curvy in the "seat" area, the reinforced area does not have much give and makes these uncomfortable. I sent them back.

April 27, 2023

My favorite

I absolutely adorn these as outdoor pants. Plus, can wear these at work when manual labor is necessary, be comfy and professional all at the same time. Will be buying another pair before camping, fishing and hunting season which is right around the corner.

The waist is large compared

We appreciate the feedback, Hope. These tights have a formfitting fit, so the waist definitely should not be big. We're thinking a size down could help, to begin an exchange [click here]( If you need garment measurements in the future please reach out to our customer service team.

Comfy and well made

This is one of two first pairs of leggings from Patagonia. I did not know what to expect. These leggings are so versatile and well made. I will be buying more

As usual, all your products

As usual, all your products are well made and very durable. The only bummer on this product for me, was just a litttle too short. I like a pant that comes down over the ankle. If you offered a tall size, would be perfect!

Fantastic for outdoor work and weeding

Just pulled these on to go do some stuff around the property and was inspired to write a review. I'm 5'8", 125 lbs, thin but with a legit butt and these pants in an XS are perfect fit of support/squeeze and comfort. They also are a nice bit sexy, that never hurts eh? Waist comes perfectly just above my hips. Normally I wouldnt say I&... Read More#x27;d wear an XS, more like a S in other Patagonia tights, so I think these run slightly large. But mostly wanted to promote these as great workpants and weeding pants (garden/farm work needs to be added to the "use this product for" list)! Not for super heavy work, but for repairing things outdoors and general putzing around fixing things or hauling things here and there and using our equipment, they're awesome. And majorly for weeding action. The reinforced knees and butt are perfect for those activities (and the pockets). When I first put them on after purchasing I could see how people find them slightly uncomfortable initially (because of where the seams for the reinforcing fall, we aren't used to feeling our clothes in those spots) but after 20 minutes or so your body and mind adjust and you don't feel it anymore and I actually find them super comfortable. Also a perfect balance of kinda cozy but not too much to get hot. I go out and mow in the sun wearing these. We live at 2000ft altitude in Hawaii. I'll try them out hiking, too, I'm sure they're great for that. I both mine on the winter sale (green ones, color tone is perfect classic timeless green) so didn't pay full price but I would, given how much they serve my needs. Cheers!

Hiking version of pack out meets expectations

I've been eyeing the hiking version of pack out tights for a while but there were no reviews - when they went on sale I finally took the plunge. I am a big fan of the regular pack out tights (over the years I've accumulated several pairs and wear them often). I'm happy to say the hiking version has same quality and weight of fabric, ... Read Moreand the sizing is consistent. Pockets are a little different (deeper, and the zip pocket is in a different spot) but just as useful. I love the double layers of fabric on the butt, but was a little suprised it was just a single layer on the knees and wish they were double, although it may say that in the specs and I just didn't pay attention. I bought them for hiking but think with an underlayer they'd work well for xc skiing on a nicer day.

February 6, 2023

Nice pockets and abrasion resistance

These tights are similar to the regular pack out tights, but with abrasion resistant fabric at the butt and knees. Its a good concept, but it lost a star for me because theyre a bit itchier, thinner and less cozy than the regular pack out tights.

January 24, 2023

Great Product

I love these tights! They fit perfectly, are super comfortable, and are great for my activities and my everyday life.

December 26, 2022

Comfortable and durable

I bought these because after 5 years of punishment the elastic on my last pair of pack out tights gave out. These are proving to be just as durable so far. My only critique is that I wish there was that soft fabric underneath the tough knee area. However, I acknowledge that this probably makes them easy to move in. I use them quite a bit for rock c...

not comfortable enough to keep. I exchanged for a larger size, which was too big at the waist. Returned both M and L and switched to a different style of hiking pants.

Tough + Warm

Wore these to hike around Mt Hood. 3 days/2 nights. Wore these two days and a lighter pair of REI pants for one day. These are perfect for sitting on the ground/rocks. We had to do some boldering over rocks and I scraped these really good and they held up. They are a bit heavy and need a lighter version of these for warmer days. I am 5'1 120 a... Read Morend an XS fit perfectly. I am curvy and never felt like these were too tight. I'd love them a bit shorter and may alter. Overall, well worth the money and glad I had them. Only complaint, a bit warm for 60' weather.

I read the review that

I read the review that the fit was for short plump people. Being a 70 year old great grandmother it is nice to have something tech that actually fits. My favorite hiking pants from the desert to rain so far, no snow yet we will see.

Well-Made, But Just Not a Good Fit

These are very well-made leggings, with thick fabric and a nice color pattern. However the fit just wasnt right for my figure. Specifically, they made my rear area look flat (and it is not!). If they had been a third of the price, I may have considered keeping them (to wear with long shirts); but they were too expensive for me to keep without lovin... Read Moreg them.

very comfortable; love the fabric blocking

Ordered XS to start and it was way too small for me: got the exchange and the small is perfect: have been living in them.

Functional hike pants

Really like these pack out 'hike' tights. Actually, I am liking the pack out tight line more and more. The hike tights are a comfortable blend of poly/spandex knit, feeling stretchy and light yet sturdy due to the nylon/spandex/DWR coated panels on the seat and knees. The lightweight patches are a great addition, BTW. The waistband is wi... Read Morede and comfortable. Something many tights lack. I purchased the smolder blue, which isn't as bright as the one the model is wearing, but still shows the color differences from the patches for nice definition.

Short and wide but great material / product

I have a chronic problem in that I am committed to sustainability and Patagonia does the best job of any brand I am aware of in this area but the sizing is honestly as though its designed for short plump people rather than anyone who is tall and needs the clothes to stay on when running or scrambling over mountain trails. I was shocked that even a ... Read Moremedium was way too short and definitely falling down as I run. I'm 5'9. This problem pervades almost all pants I've ever bought from Patagonia. Smalls often don't even go over my hips because they are cut for people so much shorter. Please fix your sizing.

December 4, 2021

Love Them

These are such amazing hiking tights. Warm, durable and so comfortable. I get compliments every time I wear them. I am purchasing my second pair. Thanks Patagonia for always delivering great quality and environmentally conscious products.

November 26, 2021

Nice but not tough

I love the regular version of these tights and figured I would get this pair for hiking. Sadly the first time I wore them the reinforced fabric on the knee ripped with one snag of a tree branch on a hike. Super bummed because I was hopeful theyd be able to hold up better.

kinda slides down while running

I'm very comfortable in this and it's on a warm/thicker side. However, when using it to run, I find myself pulling the waist back up sort of often, the top elastic band sort of slides down.

The best hiking leggings ever!

One of my favorite Patagonia products by far. It's rare to find a legging that is durable, comfortable, functional and attractive. These do it all and they don't show signs of wear or pilling even after lots of scrapes from hiking and scratches from big dog paws. The parts that are double paneled protect against mosquito bites too. Reinfo... Read Morerced bum is great for scrambles! I liked them so much I got a second pair for an upcoming trip to Telluride. They're all I'll wear while training out new puppy because they're the only legging I know she can't destroy. Keep up the great work Patagonia and keep these in the standard loop!

July 31, 2021

I had higher hopes for them- odd fit on me.

Baggy in some leg areas and overall dorky looking on me so I had to return them. I wear the Centered tights (my all time fav) 2 x week for Pilates and the W's lightwieght packout pants for hiking/lounge.

Great durable hiking leggings!

Loved these with one exception. The waistband could have been a bit snugger. I found myself having to occasionally pull them back up to my waist. As for Durability they were awesome!

Love the color blocking

I love these pants, the two different materials break up the look of a typical legging. The only major bummer is that the different materials compete and drag the pants down while hiking and running. I am constantly pulling them up. I am 5ft9 with an athletic build for reference.

Functional, comfortable and flattering

I have the pack out tights and loved them. Hiking in Texas has its share of thorny vegetation and rough rocks, and the addition of abrasion resistant fabric to these is a very smart idea because tights aren't the best when you're roughing it.

These have a great fit and feel very comfortable. Ive taken them on a birding hike to test them out and they were great. It was a very warm humid day but I didnt get too hot! Im particular about seams and I have sensitive skin. The seams are not rough on these pants. I believe they will work well under my backpacking pack.

Versatile with Style

Love these - although I originally went with my usual S but too bulky in knees, calves so I exchanged went to XS - perfect fit and great look.

Great Hiking Pants

I am so happy I got these pants. Normally I just hike in leggings & dont particularly care for traditional hiking pants, but these are the best of both worlds. The reinforced knees and butt make them great when climbing, scrambling, or sliding is needed while giving the flexibility of normal leggings. These are super comfortable!

Perfect...but the knees aren't double-layered!

I was really excited to try these hike tights as I love the regular pack-out tights (the original, not the capri ones with the super tall waistband)...and they are wonderful and first the same (nice updated zip pocket), except for some reason the decision was made to not have the knees double reinforced.

Comfy, Warm, Durable

I purchased these to use at Orienteering & Adventure Racing event where we do a lot of bushwhacking through greenbrier and such.

I love the extra long gusset at the crotch which moves the flat seams away from places ... Read Morethat are more sensitive- and I think (not yet tested) that this will make them good for the MTB legs of my Adventure Races. The extra protective panels on the shins & butt appear to be very durable which was the main point for my buying these. They are warm, so probably will not be good for summertime events, but they should work great in the late fall and early spring.

Great Technical Fabric

These hiking pants are very comfortable. I have an older version and the addition of the abrasion-resistant knees and backside this year is a practical upgrade and looks cool.
