Small bow to you all for conscious business and for "horse sense" customer policies. My personal preferences are; 1. Put zipper on right back pocket where most of us keep the wallet. (Like the deep pockets, and the belt loops) 2. Make the mouth of the zipper larger than the pocket! ... so you don't get hung up on the withdraw. Not cr...

Great pant, but...
I really like the cut, fit, and build of these pants; I bought three pairs at the get go. They fit perfectly and, then, they began to stretch out in the waist. Now, theyâ€™re too baggy in the waist and wonâ€™t stay up without a belt. If youâ€™re ordering a pair, make sure the waist fits snuggly because theyâ€™re going to stretch out. Theyâ€™re not ...

Best pants (2016) version
I have the 2016 quandary pants and they are the best,I wear them every day! I can wear them for all of the outdoor sports i participate in. And for work! I recently tried on the latest and greatest quandary in a local Patagonia store and they fit all wrong,i like the zippared wallet pocket in back but,the above the knee area was too tight,and I... Read More7;m a thin guy. If you guys had kept the same cut as 2016 the pants would be perfect.
Bought these in January and have worn them a few times. Very thin and breathable but still good to wear as casual work attire. Love the stretch. I'm not the biggest fan of the industrial green,so I'll probably get another pair in a different color. No comment on durability yet but I'm happy with the purchase
Couldn't be more disapointed with the changes
I own 2 pairs of rock craft pants (the even better predecessor to these) and 3 pairs of the original Quandary pants. They are my only pants,and I couldn't be happier with the fit,comfort and durability for long hard days hiking and working outdoors. I noticed the new (industrial green) color,so ordered another pair,but am terribly disappointed... Read More. The new waist design,and eliminating both the articulated knees and gusseted crotch (despite still being described as features on the website) make for a pant that is tight in all the wrong places,and which hangs in a weird way. Also,what's with a drawstring? I'm returning them. Please go back to producing high performance pants.
Older version of Quandary was outstanding
I previously purchased a pair of men's Quandary pants - they are terrific,fit great,wear well,I like the fabric,etc. They look good enough to wear to the office and they perform great as climbing or hiking pants,I can go straight from work to my outdoor activities. After wearing them for a while,I was ready to get rid my other pants and buy an... Read Mored wear only Quandarys. I ordered another pair and they were not nearly as good as my original. Apparently a re-design had occurred and the new version is just so-so or average. Here are my issues: "New" version of the Quandary has one less belt loop,so your belt is more likely to ride up above the waistband. Crotch gusset is gone,replaced by a linear panel of fabric that extends clear down the legs - not as much freedom of movement for climbing,doesn't look as good for office wear,and the leg fit is not as good,in addition,the leg design was changed so the subtle darts at the knees in the old version is gone and the legs just hang straight down on the new version. There is an odd,extraneous drawstring inside the pants below the belt line - the drawstring is stretchy,so wouldn't serve its purpose well,but it is unnecessary anyway,the only thing it does is hand out the fly if your not careful about making sure it is tucked in. Zippers on the pockets of the new version have loose,dangly zipper pulls which are annoying,don't look appropriate for office wear,and would snag up on the rock,or on brush (I removed them,no good). Again,the older version was superior,zipper pulls had trim little plastic tabs that stay folded out of the way. I suppose if I hadn't been spoiled by experiencing the wonderfulness of the old version of the Quandary,I would think that they were okay,but the new version just does not live up to that standard. I am a big fan of Patagonia and Patagonia products,sorry to have to give a poor word on this. Please,Patagonia,bring back the old version of the Quandary and I will be the first in line to buy more.
Good pants going the wrong way on design changes
I like the Quandary pants and have several pair. The fabric has a soft hand,is fairly quiet,and very comfortable with the slight stretch. However,some of the latest changes have me scratching my head. Belt loops...should be simple enough. These have grown to 2.5" in width,which is too wide,plus with the stretch fabric,the loop is functionall... Read Morey larger than that. The pants also went down to 5 loops from prior 6,and it impacts the function of a belt,which should be to hold your pants up,without the belt stretching over the top of the pants and looking odd. Consider Patagonia's popular belt is 1",largest belt is 1.5". Not clear why such a large loop is used. The rear pockets,adding a zipper on the left side,maybe,personally the right would be better. I actually miss the earliest version of this pant (former Rock Pants) that had an innovative flap over the rear pockets,no zipper,simple but it helped keep items in your pockets.
