At Moosejaw, pants are always optional. When we choose to wear them, however, we frequently opt for Patagonia pants. From lounging, to yoga and climbing Patagonia offers a wide variety of pants for any activity. They even have pants for babies, but Patagonia baby pants are mostly for crawling and being cute.
Check out Patagonia performance pants for everything from hiking to climbing. Pants like the Patagonia Rock Guide Pant are cut to move with you and are made from a technical, high-quality stretch nylon. In cooler conditions, you'll definitely want to check out Patagonia softshell pants like the Alpine Guide Pants or Simple Guide Pants. They're great for cold weather climbing or skiing.
Patagonia makes some pretty superb waterproof pants, like the Patagonia Torrentshell Pants or the Rain Shadow Pants. I like to imagine that those guys who work out on Pacific Northwest fishing boats wear Patagonia rain pants, but I don't really have proof for any of it. It's not just waterproof rain pants at Patagonia, they also make waterproof ski pants, like the Patagonia Powder Bowl Pant, or the Patagonia Rubicon Pant.
For off days when you're not being a fisherman or skiier, check out Patagonia casual pants and capris. Nothing fancy like insulation or waterproofing, just ultra cool, comfy pants specifically made for hanging around and generally being awesome. I'm not sure that capris are actually pants but I'm including them anyway.
Patagonia pants will not double as a parachute even if you tie knots in the legs.
