Patagonia Women's Skyline Traveler Pants - Short

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Flattering fit I think due to being able to order by numbered size. Thank you Pat for making a shorter inseam pant. Love the calf zippers because for me they help keep the debris out of shoes and j... Read Moreust easier to get on/off. Legs are fitted, but probably still room for fitted tights. Good for travel too if we ever can travel again...

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.

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.

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!

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. It's form-fitting for me (at about 135 lbs), fashi... Read Moreonable, and that extra side pocket is perfect for that something I don't want bulk on my hips. A match made in heaven for me. I will buy more in the future!

Seam breaks

Loved this pants- the style and fit are great! However, I have had 2 pairs for 2 month and the seam started coming undone in different places in each of the pants. One pair developed a large hole in my crotch (while I was at work as these are my work pants) and the other pair has part of the seam on the bum coming undone. They’re not too small- if ... Read Moreanything they’re a size too big. Very disappointed as all my other Patagonia clothes holds up very well and these are falling apart with less than 2 months of use (casual hiking).

Hi Eva, we're so sorry to hear about the untimely wear and tear of your Women's Skyline Traveler Pants. We'd be more than happy to help out with a warranty return. You're welcome to begin that process here,

Very comfortable

I absolutely loved these pants! I'm 5'2 and find it very difficult to find pants that fit me well and don't need to be altered. These pants fit like a charm, look feminine, but have a great stretch allowing me to do intensive activities without worry. They look great both with the ankle zipper open and closed. Very light material but... Read More sturdy. Definitely looking forward to using them this hiking season.

Great pants!

I bought these as a gift for my mom to use for walking/hiking. She put them on to try them on and hasn't taken them off as far as I can tell. She's in her 70s so doesn't like wearing leggings but these pants provide all the comfort and flexibility while still being a little more formal, which she appreciates. I'll be getting som...

Super Disappointed

Over the years I have purchased size 2 pants and with the exception of length (typically too long, a pair of capris the exception) they have fit very well. These days I rarely find anything that I want/like. Recently I took a chance and purchased the Skyline Traveler Pants, in size 2. They were WAY too long and WAY too big. It's like the sizin...

We are sorry to hear about the sizing issues and really appreciate the feedback on this. Comments like these are incredibly helpful to our designers and other shoppers. Please feel free to [send]( these back to us since they didn't not work out for you.

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. (Whenever I see their pants cut for us shorties I buy them before they’re gone. I hope Patagonia can see it in their hearts to start doing this with all of their pants!) The fit is great, and the material... Read More is quite stretchy and moves well with you. I’ve used them going out to dinner, bike riding, hiking, even yoga class. Good one Patagonia!

Zipper at leg bottom made

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

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.

September 23, 2019

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.

Great travel pants

Got these for a long haul flight and even though we haven’t left on our trip yet, I’ve worn these all day in various situations and I know they’ll travel well. Very comfortable and attractive on!

September 8, 2019

Very Comfortable.

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.

September 4, 2019

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.

September 2, 2019

Love these pants

Had to go get another pair because the first pair fits so comfortably just wanted a different color

W Skyline Traveler Pants

I loved my first pair so much i bought a second! I bought the short length because I'm short and with a 27" inseam, they were still a bit long. I still love them though.

August 14, 2019

Very Pleased

I have worn your Skyline Traveler Pants numerous times and are so happy with everything about them - fit, style, comfort. I usually have trouble finding good pants for outdoor activities as well as for everyday use, but these are just right for me, especially since I am short in height. Many thanks for a great product.

August 12, 2019

Fantastic Multi-Use Pants!

These pants have been such a great addition to my travel staples. I try to pack light, so I love it when I can find a garment that will do double-duty & these pants hit the mark!

Read Moreing around as a tourist and don't feel like I look like I'm wearing "outdoor gear." I'm 5'4" & 130 and got them in an 8 Short & they fit perfectly.

Great pants, not great on me

I wish these pants were flattering on me because I love the quality and design. Something about the fit just looked unappealing on me. I'm lean with a boyish build.

August 10, 2019

Perfect travel pant

Light weight, compact and easy to hand wash. Great travel pant.

August 10, 2019

My favorite Skyline Traveler pants!

These pants are so lightweight I can wear them comfortably in 100+ degree heat. I ordered the Dolomite Blue a size up, short inseam, and they fit perfectly with a flattering style. After wearing them on a seven hour flight I had to purchase a second pair in Black. I’m 5’ 4” 132 pounds.

August 10, 2019

Found the pant for me

I'm a tough customer for pants -- most ride too low, are tight in the thighs or narrow in the calf. This pant is a perfect fit for me and I love the 'hidden' belt feature. I can tighten the waist slightly without a belt. Great style, good 'em. Bought the blue then went back for the black later. Sizing: I'm a ... Read Moretrue size 6 and 5'6" and the regular are long for me, so I chose the 'short' size for the second pair.

Traveling Pants

Pants work for great for being on photoshoots. Love that I don’t have to worry about them getting ruined while I get the most out of the location I need. Either sitting in the lavender fields or on the beach or in the marsh, they are easily the best pants for the job.

August 10, 2019

Order up, they run small

Ordered 4 short in two different pants, (these ran a size smaller than 4 short Island hemp pants) They are Especially snug through hips and thighs. Wish you carried short length in store to try on & exchange. Sadly had to send back.

Great travel pants

Got the pants for a 3 week trip to Jordan/Israel. Wore it in the plane and several times for outings and bus rides. The fabric is extremely comfortable and does not wrinkle. Works well for day casual or casual dinners. love it

These pants are wonderful for me. Perfect fit and very flattering; each time I wear them I get complimented and/or inquired about them. When I say “Patagonia” it seems to answer all their questions about quality, comfort, etc. My first pair was black, the next dolomite blue. For reference, I’m 5’2”, 118 lbs., and ordered size 6 short.

great pants, length off

These pants are what I've been looking for for years. Great fit and look for a sporty pant. Only complaint is that the short length is not that short. I'm 5'3" with average proportions and they could be 1-2" shorter. My 5'6" friend, also with average proportions, tried them on and they were a perfect length for he... Read Morer. I'll still wear them a ton, but might I be cuffing them occasionally.

Love the fit, but not the quality

Patagonia's quality seems to be deteriorating. I bought 3 of these pairs and the seams of all 3 fell apart, not much but enough to upset me for paying so much for these and not getting what I paid for. If I had pulled on the seams, the pants would've fallen apart. This was horrible. 3 stars because I love Patagonia, and the fit of these.

I live in these pants

I am 5'8 150 lb and 64 y/o. purchased in size 10 short and they hit me at the ankle. These pants fit like a charm. Extremely comfortable, functional and durable.

Perfect fit!

I just got these pants and they're amazing! I am 5'4'',about 130 pounds and the size 4 fit like a glove.

Best pants ever!

Finally a super cute cut with "super powers" of quality for pants. I have the black ones and the cut and fit are perfect. Stretchy enough to wear all day long especially during travels and the daily. This ran TTS and the tag said it was a 28" inseam which is perfect for my 5"4 average frame.
