Perfect for the Polar Vortex in northern MN
I love these pants - bought XL which is great for layering. I can still get out and hike, bike or xc ski during the coldest days of our northern MN winter, from below zero to about 5 above. I sometime wear them downhill skiing on chillier days too. I can wear a couple of base layers under the XL size. They are also my go to for standing outside at ... Read Moremy kids hockey games. My heavy use has resulted in some areas of wear in the inner thighs, which I will send in for repair after winter. 10/10 recommend these pants.
Super warm and comfortable!
I bought these for my wife after owning my own pair for a year and she absolutely loves them as much as I do. I originally got them as insulation while skiing, but brought them out for backpacking this summer and now I've started just wearing them around the house or on walks. They are always the perfect temperature and tremendously comfortabl... Read Moree. They do rip/cut easily, I've already had to repair mine twice but it's easy enough with a sewing kit. Wouldn't be a problem at all if used entirely for skiing. Also not the most stylish but I don't think that will shock anyone. Fully planning on getting a second pair, they're great.
these pants are amazing
I couldn't love these pants more. Paired with a good base layer, these are FANTASTIC for walking/hiking and even just sitting outside in this very cold NE US winter. I wish there were a pair just like this - with the same stretch and the same fit, but more durable and waterprof - for me to wear to work, but they wouldn't withstand a day o... Read Moref farming/landscaping work, so I'll be layering these under waterproof/windproof shell pants until it warms up. I don't want to take them off!
Fell in love with these
They are very warm, soft and comfortable. I usually wear lulu lemon yoga pants but those sometimes start to feel restrictive on the legs. These are as though someone took a warm/lightweight comforter and stitched them into pants. Days when it's cold I wear them all day even indoors.
These Nano-Air pants are fabulous for me. I bought them for camping, but have started wearing them around the house (which we keep cool). They are light weight, comfy, and warm. Add a pair of liners and they are of course even warmer. The fit is slim and don't look absurdly bulky when worn. They have pockets! I loved these so much that I g... Read Moreot a second pair. They are expensive, but obviously for me I felt that they are worth the cost.
The perfect pant for me
I never write reviews, but I sing the praises of this pant to anyone who will listen. I looked for this type of pant forever. I hike all winter in Wisconsin and sometimes work outside, so I need something very warm that I can still move in. I don't want or need the bulk of snowpants (or the swish swish sound they make). I wear these alone in ... Read Moreabove freezing temps and with a pair of long underweear underneath when it's below freezing. No matter the conditions, I always feel like I'm wearing shorts on a pleasant 70 degree day. It's awesome. I've worn these on a hike in a very wet snowstorm and they kept me surprisingly bone dry. They're like miracle pants. I am 5'7, 135, bought a small and wish I had bought a medium, but they still work. I wear them constantly. The waist is just a bit tight, and that's notable because I have a small waist and larger butt, but these pants fit well in the butt, but are small in the waist. It's usually the opposite for me. Highly, highly recommended! I'm saving up for a second pair, but I'll get a medium next time.
Perfect x-country ski pant for cold days!
I am 5'10 approx. 165lbs and have STRUGGLED with cold weather x-country ski gear my entire life. These pants are perfect. They are stretchy enough for good mobility and they are nice and warm! They are just long enough that they tuck into my ski boot and the bottoms are tapered, so it's a great fit for x-country. As people have said above... Read More, that waist band is terrible, but because I layer, I don't feel the scratchy part so it's not an issue at all. Also, again as mentioned by other reviewers, they are definitely unflattering, but they're so comfy and warm I don't care. Thanks Patagonia! If you fixed that waistband these would be 100% perfect.
Dont wait, purchase these now if you live in a cold climate
Wow just wow. These pants have saved this CA girl in a Chicago winter. They are not only so toasty outside when its cold but they also are not too hot for in door lounging. I bike in these bad boys when its 20 degrees and dont feel a thing. Cant wait to try them out below zero. Wish it wasnt covid and I could give a winter camping review too! Defin... Read Moreitely worth the money.
Loved them, but don't do enough cold outdoor stuff to justify the price!
I so, so, so wanted to keep these -- they were super comfy, soft, and warm -- like wearing a favorite blanket, but I just couldn't justify the expense as I don't do a lot of winter camping. With COVID we're doing a lot of outdoor fires at night, which made me think twice about returning them, but I would have a cow if a rogue piece o... Read Moref hot ash burned a hole in them! It took me three days to come to terms with letting them go back to Patagonia. If you do a lot of cold weather camping or if you don't have a problem spending a couple of hundred bucks on really nice cozy pants, these are right up your alley. Also, some people have written that they didn't like the way they looked, but they didn't look bad at all, and honestly, they were so comfortable I didn't care. Also, no waistband troubles for me, and I'm 51 and losing a bit more of my waist every year... Part of me still regrets sending them back...
TOO TIGHT IN WAIST...COULD BARELY PULL OVER HIPS!
TOO TIGHT IN WAIST. My friend also ordered and said the same thing. I could barely pull over my hips and I do not have big hips. Modify the waist and I will buy 2 pairs. Also, not crazy about the piece of elastic. I LOVE pull-on pants with elastic but these need more attention on the waist design. I am 65 and have worn Patagonia for over 30 years.
Unbecoming design ....
Love Patagonia more than ANY other brand - but these were not what I needed. A bit too fragile for hiking anywhere near brambles - branches, etc. A lovely cozy feel, but not practical. Need to be a bit less sweatpants-like - maybe a slimmer leg with stretch panels down the legs or something.... PLEASE remake the original windshield tights - from 30... Read More years ago... Tough, comfortable, sleek and more becoming. Only thing they needed was a cozier lining/interior.
We are so thankful to have your support and are sorry to hear that these missed the mark for you. Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) those back to us and we appreciate your feedback.
Pretty awesome comfy pants
These are just what I was looking for, which was a warm pair of lounge pants for the winter. They are comfy & versatile. I mostly wear them around the house in the evenings, but I can also use them on dog walks when its cold out. Theyre a little snug around the waist (& Im a size 2), but otherwise they fit well. My only complaint is I wish ... Read Morethey had a pocket in back for my phone.
So soft, weird waistband
These pants are so soft and seem like they will be very warm. I love the cuffs but the waistband is raw grippy elastic and its not very comfy. If the waistband was made of the same material as the cuffs these pants would be amazing. I would also agree with other reviewers that the legs are a bit bulky and the waist is comparatively small.
Warm and comfy
The pants are so warm and soft! I got them for cold weather/winter camping and they have served the purpose with no complaints! However the fit is hard for me.

Read Moreerlayer/midlayer for very cold weather/winter camping, but they are too baggy to fit as an active underlayer. Please reconfigure the fits please!
I really wanted to love these pants. My legs always get so cold cross country skiing. I think they would have been great but the elastic on the inside of the waist band is so bad. Its way too tight and scratchy and sits against your skin. If it was more like a legging style waist band with a draw string or something I would keep them.
Comfy and warm but TIGHT waistband
Its summer in my area so I cant truly speak to the warmth but I tried these on and think they feel real good and believe theyll be super warm. I wear a size XS in the happy hike pants and shorts and Id say these fit pretty similarly however, there isnt as much stretch in the waist and bum.
The pockets are deep so things don't fall out, you can also use the pocket to stuff the pants inside themselves for condensing/packing. The cuff's on the pant bottoms are super functional, easily able to pull them above my boots. They don't slip, or leave the lines in your calves from being too tight after finishing the day. After... Read More a long cold spell this January, I don't know how I worked outside without them before! The other reviews were that they ran small/tight in the waist band, so I went with M. I'm 5'6 130 (a perfect small/med combo). Medium is the right fit for me. I was pretty nervous on sizing not being able to try them on in a store.
Most comfortable warm pants for winter
I bought 3 pairs of these pants. I am 5’1”, 110 pounds and xs fir me really well. I have big calves so it’s a bit tight if I wear another tights underneath.

I really wanted to love these but....
A Nano-Air jacket for my bottom half? 😍 What is there not to love??! I read all the reviews and had low expectations on attractiveness, but still could not bring myself to keep, given poor fit.

I would have to take them in by like 2 inches on each side. But the waist was actually correctly fitted, borderline snug and uncomfortable with that thin elastic band (fine when worn alone, but too tight if layering a baselayer underneath). So I'm doubtful that XS would work better. I looked so frumpy that I couldn't bring myself to keep them, even as an item to wear around the house. But 5 stars for fabric and cozy amazing warmness for sure! I'm really hoping that the next iteration of these will improve on the fit.
like wearing two soft hugs on my legs
I don't know how, but these insulated pants are unassumingly warm. They're softer than my old fleece sweats that these have replaced. I've worn these on colder ski days (under non-insulated ski pants, over ski socks). The description says you can pull them above the shin comfortably for skiing which I've tried, but I ended up ju... Read Morest keeping them down - they're low profile enough to fit in my boots fine. I also wear these around the house on cold days, as they're incredibly cozy. They're obviously not as fitted and flattering as leggings, but I didn't find them as frumpy on as other people seemed to have. Lastly, Patagonia pants fit is always kind of weird - I have narrow hips so the XS fit me just right (5'3", 125lbs, p muscular legs), but since the band isn't super stretchy, sizing is less forgiving so it may take some time to find your right size (but it's worth it).
Warm + light + lovely
These pants are so warm and lightweight! I’ve been wearing them under my ski pants instead of my wool long johns, and they feel so much nicer and warmer, and ask less restricting. They are not flattering, not even a little bit, but they are wonderfully functional. Bring a change of clothes for apres ski. One thing that would make them more comforta... Read Moreble would be to soften the inner lining of the waistband. They’re so functional and so unflattering - they could be a little cozier to round things out. Still, they’re go to outdoor adventure pants up here in snowy northwest Montana. I usually wear a small in Patagonia, but returned the small for a medium. The small ones gave me a muffin top.
Ugly and weird fit.
Too big and too shapeless. Nice airy weight. That’s the only thing nice I can say.
Hi Jane! Thanks for your feedback. We're sorry to hear these pants didn't work out for you. I would recommend checking out our [W's Crosstrek Fleece Bottoms](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-crosstrek-fleece-lined-tights-bottoms/23865.html?dwvar_23865_color=BLK&cgid=womens-pants-jeans#tile-3=&start=1&sz=24) for a more flattering, fitted insulated pant.
Winner for all around cold
So these pants are not a fashion statement but they fit perfectly into my hiking boots and keep me warm on a dog walk at zero degrees in New Mexico. They are not bulky and also are not too warm inside when worn as "cozy pants". I am 5'6"/140 lbs; the waist should not be any smaller for me but I can pull them on just fine. Length... Read More is perfect.
Trouble with Sizing
I love the concept of these pants but the size small was too small and the medium was too big. The trouble was mostly in the cut of the legs. Below the pockets, the material pouches out, like a riding pant. I considered keeping them and having them tailored but decided it would be added expense for an already expensive pant.
Cold Weather Fishing Gear
Very comfortable and light weight under layer for my waders. I love that the ankle area is a flat knit so there isn't any bulk around the top of your boots. These pants are designed for a rather curvy shape, not my build, but are perfect for cold water & Winter wading.
These came in the mail the same day a windy cold front moved in. I've loved them from day one. These pants are toasty warm and do a great job of blocking out the wind on cold hikes.

I may not be hiking in the arctic circle right now, but camping, hiking and biking in below freezing temps, these are my fav. piece of gear.

Warm and comfortable!
These pants keep me warm and toasty, despite the wind and cold. They are truly amazing and I can justify the expense by knowing that I will use them often. The material is extremely soft and gives during activity. The waist band is perfect! For reference, I am 5'5 and fluctuate between 125 and 130 lbs. I bought a small and they are perfect!
While I still cannot believe that Patagonia does not make insulated puffy down pants for women...these are a worthy substitute.

The best pants for any cold weather activity
I bought the previous version of these pants that are part of the alpine line and they were a staple in my wardrobe for nearly 3 years. I was so pleased to see a newer version had come out.

Great insulation layer
I bought these pants for ice climbing in the north east as I run very cold and have yet to use them for that yet, so these are mainly comments on the fit. I'm 5'8" mostly in the legs and these pants are just barely long enough in a size small (which is great because most patagonia pants are short on me). I have a butt and there is ad...
