Men's Fit Guide Details & Info

Patagonia's measurements refer to body size and NOT garment dimensions. Sorry for yelling about it.

Each Patagonia product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, and below are their generalized four fit descriptions, and details about each fit. The Patagonia fit for each style can be found in the product description features or specifications.

• Conforms to the body's contours.

• Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.

• Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers. Men's regular fit pants have a slimmer fit through that thigh, lower leg, and cuff.

• Drapes loosely on the body. Men's relaxed fit pants have a bit of extra room through the hip, thigh, lower, and cuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from like it so much we got another this is a gift for my boyfriend. his blue friction belt has been around forever (so has the boyfriend) and it was starting to get a little dull looking (the belt, not the boyfriend). the old belt is still in perfect working order (as is the boyfriend.) but BF said he wanted a brown belt now and was very particular about the shade of brown -- weird, i know, for a guy to care that much about specific color. the "axel balsam stripe" was the only brown that he wanted and i do hope he likes it when he sees it. the old belt has been great for holding up pants, tying people up, and as a climbing accessory, and we are looking forward to many more happy years with the new one

Rated 3 out of 5 by from As a belt, it holds my pants up...huzzah! Bought this hoping it would last me like my old web belts. Durability has been good so far and it's been out in the back woods, the mountains, even hangs out around my waist at work while I'm welding. Only problem I've had is that after a few months of use, it always seems to want to slip loose when I'm doing something important, and don't have the hands to grab the waistline... so I end up duck walking ever so slightly(i'd like to think it's quirky and eccentric seeming) till I have a free hand. I've remedied this by running it double backed...but it seems like I shouldnt have had to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and elegant, yet durable and effective... I have been having a hard time keeping my pants up lately, so I decided this belt to solve my problem. This is more or less a glorified nylon strap similar to those used to put around a sleeping bag or something, but it is definitely more stylish and works extremely well. I now wear this belt all of the time and it works equally well while hiking, backpacking, playing soccer with my nieces/nephews, or just walking around town. The webbing is 1.125" wide and 43.75" long. The buckle is slim and is comfortable underneath the hip belt of a backpack. I haven't had any problems with it slipping. I highly recommend this belt and will definitely purchase another if this one ever wears out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this belt, use it all the time I love this belt, I've been through a lot of belts, for some reason I'm very particular about my belts. I got this belt and threw out every other belt I owned, it's that awesome. I got the black one so it goes with pretty much everything. I wear it when I'm mountaineering, I wear it when I'm rocking those pastel shorts from J Crew, I use it when I'm rock climbing and the rope isn't quite long enough. Could probably get away with wearing it as a head band, it's that awesome. I've got a size 32 waist and there is just the right amount of length left over at the end. Perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This belt doubles as a back up cinch strap. I have cinch straps that double duty as belts too. It's a piece of nylon web with a buckle. Not too much of a ground breaking advancement. It works but there are two flaws; It is only 1" (mine must be older models as they're spec'd at 1 1/4" now). The buckle would actually be practical if they had the extended flange on the OTHER side of the buckle so you could stick your finger behind it to pry it back when sliding in the tag end of the belt. That would make it A LOT easier to cinch up tight. I have had two of them for about 10 yrs and after the nylon begins to fray they slip a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non Slip Grip This belt is great! I got mine with the Fitzroy design and it is probably the coolest looking belt I've seen that isn't gaudy and flashy. True to it's word, this belt has yet to slip on me, a testament to the quality of patagonia's gear. It's reversible too, though I don't know why you would ever want to put the fitz skyline away. It's a tremendously simple belt, just stick the tail in then out and your set. I've heard that the size is so it can be used as an emergency pack strap. True or not, that's a pretty cool idea.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mountaneering belt for all weather conditions! The Patagonia Friction Belt is a great mountaineering belt for a number of reasons. On some of my previous hikes I had worn leather belts that would stretch and disfigure when they got wet. This will no longer be a problem with this belt. The only thing is the belt is not as thick as I thought it would be, otherwise it is great. I am a size 32 waist and it fits great. This belt might be a little small for someone larger waist sizes. It is light, easy to adjust and also easy to pack since you can roll it right up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best canvas belt I've ever had! This belt is great. It's affordable but totally does the job. It never slips and looks great even when I'm not in the woods. It's reversible too, and I hear it's long enough to strap stuff onto your pack if in a pinch. It's a bit long for me, but I just show of my fancy knot skills with the excess and it totally takes care of the problem. Of course the belts quality isn't a surprise with Patagonia's reputation. Not only do they do their best for the environment, but their products last!
