Size inconsistency

I'm been wearing Patagonia since their inception and I'm usually very happy with their quality and functionally. I have some gear more than 25 years old that's still in good shape. The only gripe i've ever had with Patagonia is the inconsistency in their sizing. That's why I only give this 4 stars. I typically wear XL in Pa... Read Moretagonia but with the Trail Pacer Joggers, like certain other styles, I must go down to L, and they're listed as "slim fit". But then on the flip side XL is too tight sometimes so how does one know what size to order? I've also learned the hard way to go into the store if I can any time I'm buying a Patagonia style for the first time but it should not have to be that way if you're going to run a mail order business. Patagonia, by now you should have learned how to correctly size your cloths and stop inconveniencing your customers. I know I'm not the only one based on other reviews I've read and by talking to your sales staff. Whatayousay? Having to send stuff back and the resulting shipping pollution certainly doesn't help our personal lives or the life of the planet.

Versatile Active Pants

You can wear these to the gym or for running or similar activity and you can detour to the grocery store or cafe afterwards and still fit in.

November 14, 2023

Great All Around Active Pants

These are great for going to the gym, going for a run, or similar and they work for transitions back through a coffee shop or the grocery store.

September 13, 2023

Great casual joggers

Great casual joggers, they are form fitting but fit perfectly in a M. I'm around 190lbs at 6'1" if that helps for reference. I'd use these more so around the house or of I went out for a casual walk, run, or easy hike. They look too much like tights for me to wear out and about as casual wear

September 12, 2023

Great all around item

I run in them, I travel in them, and I watch football in them. The light weight material is just enough for cold morning runs and the soft super comfortable fabric makes the great for travel. I like when a piece of clothing can be worn for just about anything. Must have!

September 11, 2023

Soft and comfortable

I originally purchased these for cool weather runs. I was a little surprised the fabric was so soft on these! Very comfortable. They are a slimmer fit, but great for running and soft enough that I find myself wearing them around the house as well.

April 19, 2023

Great but pockets need work

I've absolutely loved these joggers - perfect for running, hiking, rucking and wearing in the gym. The only flaw is the front pockets - after about 2 months of use, the seam on the front left pocket completely separated from the pants.

Great fit. Color goes with almost everything. Patagonia always delivers!

March 26, 2023


During this cold winter, I lived in these pants. I planned on using them for long early morning runs, when it's still frosty on the ground. I quickly realized the cut and material allow you to wear these pants anytime. I'd say if your looking for one pair of pants that checks all the boxes, these are them. I highly recommend them as a mus... Read Moret have just based on the versatility. I wish they offered them in more colors!

Maybe some of the best jogger pants I've worn. Excellent fit and finish

Good pant, sizing inconsistent.

I have 2 pairs, one from F21 and one from F22. I The ones from F21 do seem to run a little large, which many other reviews indicate. I have many pairs of Strider Pros in S, but the F21 was slightly loose in the XS. For the F22 pair, I also have an XS. It is noticeably more trim in the legs and slightly moreso at the waist. Regardless, if you wear S... Read More in the Strider Pro, I'd go down to XS for these in order to get the waist elastic correct for running even with the new F22. Despite the sizing, these are overall great. Very much like a tight, but maybe a bit less revealing as they have a little more room in the crotch. I use them between 0-25F.

February 8, 2023


Very comfortable perfect for the gym or hanging out and these fit great around my thighs and have a decent length and not tight around the crouch True to SizeTrue to Size

February 8, 2023

Beyond comfortable and a perfect fit

True to size and I love the color. Zipper pockets are a huge plus and the elastic stretches very well if you are doing yoga or running for maximum comfort. No complaints here at all. The perfect, casual pant!

January 30, 2023

fit good and pack even better

love them, my new favorite casual pants.

So comfortable and great customer service!

I'm so impressed with the customer service at Patagonia! My order was shipped to the wrong address and they immediately sent a replacement at no cost! Awesome sauce!

December 31, 2022

Love them

So soft and comfy.

December 26, 2022

Very Enjoyable Joggers

I've typically always work tights when running in cold weather. As joggers, these fit a bit looser, more like sweatpants. I wasn't sure how I would like them but I have to say I prefer them over tights. They're more comfortable and warmer than tights overall.

November 29, 2022

Thinner Than Expected.

Patagonia makes a great product. I wanted to love these, unfortunately they were a bit short for my tall build and a bit more thin than expected. Think more like a loose running tight. The zipper pockets are great. Fits as sized. I hope Patagonia makes a warmer layer jogger as an every day use product someday.

October 10, 2022

Very warm

these are pretty slim fitting, almost as the running tights but not quite. I did buy them in medium, even though I am usually a large. My waist is 32 or 34. Even then, some of the material bunches up at my ankles. The material is pretty thin and light, but still warm. I wish the material was a bit thicker so that it's not too revealing of body... Read More features. They are very comfortable. I wish the draw string in the front could be threaded to go inwards so that the knot doesn't show under a t-shirt. Love that the pockets have zippers, they work great. For some reason, the stitching that runs along the side of the leg on the outside stands out quite a bit. I wish that was more seamless and the material just merged together seamlessly. Overall, I love these

September 28, 2022

Uncomfortable material, strange fit, best described as a pair of scuba diving pants.

I wanted to be stoked about these pants, but instead I returned them to my local Patagonia store shortly after. Trying them on at home. The fit and fabric is not very comfortable, stick with the other joggers Patagonia makes.

Sizing Off

I am 5'10" 175 lbs and typically find myself getting size large slim or formfitting fit or medium relaxed fit items. Thought these would be ok in large, maybe a little loose. Unfortunately the waist is really large (measures approx 34" prior to tightening waist band). 32" or so seems more common in other brands' athletic fi... Read Moret joggers. Tightening leads to bunching in the waist. Length is also long, baggy throughout. Obviously I should have sized down to a medium. Hope this is helpful for other buyers. The fabric feels really nice. Zipper pockets and other details also nice. If the fit was right I think I'd be happy with them.

Hey J, thank you for the review, we think it will be very helpful to other customers! So long as your joggers are still in new condition, you're welcome to begin an exchange [here]( We're also happy to provide you with garment measurements if you ever need them, just reach out to customer service. These pants have a flat waist measurement of 17.25" in the size large. The medium measures in at 15.75".

Kinda big & long

Fantastic soft & stretchy fabric! Feels great for activities or relaxing. Nice details like the zipper pockets and smart waist tie. My only complaint is that theyre pretty baggy and long. I wear a large in some other items and a medium often seems too small. Im 510 185 and would recommend others size down or be prepared for a loose, relaxed fit...

Response from Patagonia
June 8, 2022

Thanks for your feedback, Jared! The Trail Pacer is a "slim" fit design so it may cause you to size up or feel snug compared to our ["regular" or "relaxed" fit styles]( like the R1 Fleece pant or R2 TechFace Pant.

April 29, 2022


The pants are very comfortable. I bought a small. Fits well in the waist but I feel a need to roll up the extra material at the ankles.

March 16, 2022

Great material

Nice zip pockets. Fits well.

January 3, 2022

A little high-waisted

I really like the fit - they're fitted but not so tight that they're embarrassing. I wish they had a shorter waist, though. I don't have a particularly short waist, but these are higher-waisted than I'd like for running tights. And the drawstring should have some elasticity. Otherwise, they're great.

December 13, 2021


Lounging, hiking, Pilates, yoga and walking the beach, these are perfect for it.

November 30, 2021


A pair of loose tights is a must have for me and these are perfect. Great for lots of activities but not so technical that you can't drop by the cafe afterwards and punch out a couple hours of work in them too.

November 12, 2021

Comfy to wear

I really enjoy wearing the Trail Pace. The fit is perfect for me. They are soft to the touch, with a stretch that just makes them comfy to wear, hiking, walking my dog and just hanging out at home. Being so versatile makes them a good buy. Oh yea, one more thing, they look great.

November 9, 2021

Very Happy With Trail Pacer Joggers

Size is perfect for me (5'9", 145 lb, -ish). These are not tight tights, although I wouldn't call them baggy. Have used them exclusively for two purposes, running, and lounging post-run.

November 5, 2021

Perfect running, biking, and wearing anywhere pants

Comfortable for everyday wear. I've biked in them between 30 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit and run in them between 30 and 50 degrees and they feel great. I like them so much I got a 2nd pair.

October 7, 2021

The positive reviews were right

Ive struggled over the years to find long running pants that fit comfortably and are neither baggy nor super tight. These fell into that sweet spot for me, and I like them so much that Im considering acquiring a second pair.

Great fabric, weird waist

First off these pants are super comfy. However, the fit is so strange. I'm 6'2 195lb, do mostly running and biking. I originally bought the medium and the waist fit perfect, but the legs were skin tight. I returned the mediums for the large, and now the legs fit closer to how they look on the models, but the waist is so loose they would f... Read Moreall off immediately if I don't tie the string. The waistband string is my second big complaint. It's essentially a shoe lace, and when tied tightly can dig into the skin a bit. All that being said, the material is wonderful. I've decided to keep the pants, but the waistband almost ruined them for me.

October 3, 2021

Uncharacteristically baggy

I'm on the thinner side, but these joggers fit way looser than I am used to Patagonia garments fitting, more in line with how baggy the workwear line is (which I also found to be uncharacteristically baggy even compared to relatively roomy garments like the Better Sweater jacket).

Crazy comfortable, seriously considering buying a back up pair

Patagonia's product description is spot on. Lightweight, stretchy, and beyond comfortable. As close to the freedom of shorts as pants can get.

Fairly slim build, and I typically wear a pant with 32-34 waist depending on the cut/brand with a 33-34 inseam. Medium is essentially a perfect fit for me. Waist is comfortable without being snug, cuff falls right at my ankle as I would hope for a jogger.

April 7, 2021

you'll never want to take these off

so stretchy, and oh so comfy. these run a little big. i am 32 " waist and the mediums felt pretty loose at the waist. probably next time i'll buy a small. hopefully they come back in stock soon and with more colorways.

March 4, 2021

Good but needs some improvement

I like these pants and material feels really nice and stretchy and feels like it could wick away sweat. But I thought the material would be thicker but oh well

February 28, 2021

Perfect, chafe free, just-enough wind & cold protection.

Just what I was looking for.

December 25, 2020


These are as comfy as my birthday suit. They are perfectly slim and stretchy without looking like leggings. A bit too casual for my work setting but perfect for around the house and working out. I'll avoid subjecting them to abrasion as the fabric doesn't seem super sturdy. Also they don't retain heat or keep out the cold, an awesome... Read More feature in my opinion.

The pandemic pant

These have cemented themselves at the core of my Covid uniform. They're great as intended - a jogging or warm-up pant, but just fantastic for casual wear. Stretchier than any other pants I've worn.

Ripped in crotch, kind of awkward fit

I bought these joggers online. Fit: I wouldn't have purchased them if I tried them on. They were big in the waste from the start, and stretched out after a couple washes. Durability: I'm an endurance athlete (ironman, trail runner) and a minimalist. I like to own a couple products that work great and last. These absolutely did not fit... Read More the latter (a surprise for patagonia). The seems at the crotch started coming undone after a couple wears; the crotch was torn after a month; after 2 months the pants were unwearable. Versatility: The reason why I'm not a 1- or 2-star is versatility. These pants were great for around the house, the gym, traveling, running, hiking, etc. Ultimately was disappointed in the product. I wish they were more durable and fit better. Fortunately was reimbursed by Patagonia since the product ripped after a couple weeks. Unsure if this was a quality control issue, or simply a poor product design. If you're an athlete who plans to wear these pants frequently and for multiple functions, I'd strongly recommend against a purchase.

Great Pants

These pants are super comfortable and light weight. Good for winter running and commuting on the bike.

February 5, 2020

Good joggers, need a bit more attention in the pockets

Good for what they're designed for and like everyone else has said: extremely cozy. My reason for not giving these a glowing review is the pocket design is lazy. These pants need a phone pocket like the Hampi Rock Pants. Also, no key stash or loop? Little more attention and these things would be out of this world. Would I recommend this produc...

After a recent weight loss it was time to replace the R1 pants...these are amazing. such a soft finish and great crisp fit...especially at the ankles. no floppy extra material. I really love these.

Extremely comfortable, just the right

Extremely comfortable, just the right amount of stretch, and they fit perfectly! Well done.

OMG they are so comfortable

OMG they are so comfortable I plan on wearing them until they completely fall apart and would be so glad to purchase again.

November 22, 2019


Men have a function option now to wear light, stretchy pants without suffering from the cold. I bought these since winter was coming and I needed a way to stay warm for car camping and be able to stretch freely. However, when I was out walking my dog, my thighs got wet faster than I expected.

November 10, 2019


The best pair of running pants I have ever owned, hands down.

November 9, 2019

Love them

Love these joggers. In fact, I’m wearing them right now. Super comfy during exercise or lounging around the house.

Soft fabric and great fit

Soft fabric and great fit with wide waistband

Very light weight. I use them for cooler weather running outside and, on really cold days, working out at the gym. Slim enough to be modern but not tights. Only thing I might like is a cellphone sized pocket in the small of the back.

November 3, 2019

Great all -purpose sports wear

Comfortable, whisper-light, and well-tailored. I think comfort range maybe down to 45F for running.

October 27, 2019

Perfect running pant

Love these. Perfect pocket placement for long runs on the trail. Best midway pant between a running legging and sweatpants. Highly recommend

Very nice running pants

I've been enjoying these pants a good bit since receiving them a week or so ago. I'm 6'1, 170 pounds and wear L in everything from Patagonia. Pros -They're well made and the soft material feels good against your skin -Good freedom of movement though I wouldn't want the material to be any heavier, as on the first run they ... Read Morefelt almost like light weight sweatpants -They breathe nicely and regulate your temperature well too. I've paired them with Sender boxers and the wicking, etc. is great -They make my cool weather runs more comfortable and make me want to get out for some miles Cons -I found the fit in the waist and hips to be too generous. To make up for this, I've had to cinch them above my hips. -The shoe string waist adjustment isn't ideal. I'd prefer a way to incrementally adjust it rather than having to re-tie it. This is inconvenient while out on a run. -I don't understand having reflective material in the shoe string -- I assume most people will have a shirt covering it. Overall a quality and nice feeling pair of running pants.

Great pant

First impressions are comfortable and light. I can even dress these up and wear them around the office. Good pant.

Finally yes!

Light, breath, not to tight, not to loose. Perfect.

I was surprised how light

I was surprised how light weight the fabric is and seems more like a weight for a top than a bottom. No problem with the quality or fit but I prefer a slightly heavier fabric. Not really very happy with this item.

Great performance, but make sure you size up by one size, even versus other Patagonia gear.

Multi-functional genius

I have well built legs, so these are a little tighter on my legs than a relatively normal musculature leg build. But still loose enough so that it doesn't look and feel like I'm wearing around tights. The pockets are perfect because they have zippers. I have terrabone's, which are more of a "go sweat" type of pant, and not something that you would logically carry valuables in around town (they slide out due to shallow terrabone pockets). I wear patagonia boxer briefs underneath them so it doesn't feel like I really have anything on my legs at all when sitting or moving. Still have yet to take these bad boys out for a run, but know they will fair well in that context too. Very thoughtful product. A company that can make brilliant products and save the world? I'm in for that business model. :)

What I’ve been waiting for!

Just got these in, and I’m very happy with the design! Very lightweight and breathable, loose enough in the thighs so they don’t look like tights, and tapered well enough to slide the cuffs up a little if needed. Zippered pocket are a great addition. The stretch and breathability on the pants are amazing!
