Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best before, now even better I have an older version of these pants (which has two side and two back zipped pockets), and love them. Comfortable, durable, easy to wash in a sink, and good looking enough to wear almost anywhere while traveling. I was disappointed initially by the fact that REI removed two of the zippers. But then I realized that they hid a new zipped pocket inside the left pocket. That plus the reinforced hem in the pant legs and a couple other nice additions like a small loop and hidden watch pocket make this version even better than my old one. Yes, the sizing is smaller than any other pants I own, and adding a black version would be nice. But these pants rock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect summer swelter pants Really light weight and venty. Small breeze blows right through providing heat dissipation. Other reviews said runs small so I got normal size and one up. Normal size fits fine. Waist is snug; loose and totally unrestricting everywhere else. I didn't test abrasion resistance in wear around the house (twice) and all day yesterday on a hot site walk. Would expect problems if you were bushwhacking through heavy stuff. Waist band has stray threads that should have been trimmed at mfgr, but no other issues. Legs have nice heavy band about an inch wide inside at the very bottom. I expect this will help keep cuffs in good shape for a long while.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Redesign the zipper pocket and do deeper pockets Overall, a decent pair. Still, I struggled to put items into the zippered pocket inside the left pocket. And there is no way to close the zipper with only one hand, given its vertical orientation. How about a horizontal zipper that can be opened and closed with one hand? So the left zipper pocket was nearly worthless as a place to keep valuables such as my wallet and my passport. Finally, the pockets simply are not deep enough, and I often worried that something would fall out. Once a dollar bill fell out of the right pocket as I was sitting in a restaurant. The pants are a very comfortable fit, but the pockets need a complete redesign!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Travel Pants I bought these pants just before my trip to Portugal and Spain. I wore them everyday for 8 days straight. They are light and breathe well. Didn't stain or look like they had been worn for so many days. Even on hot days I was comfortable. Since you can't enter many churches in short pants these are perfect. I had no problems with the pockets and appreciate the three zippered pockets. I liked them so much I bought another pair as soon as I got home because I know in a few months I won't be able to find them. That has happened to me before with other REI products that fit well but get discontinued after one season.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pant, magnet for lint/hair I really like this pant. 4.5 stars. Pros: * Very lightweight fabric, comfortable in any weather above ~40F * Clean appearance, can wear these to the office * Hidden pocket on the thigh gives extra storage but does not detract from the clean appearance * Reinforced heel Cons: * Collects amazing amount of lint/hair. I ordered this in 3 colors. After a few washes, the two darker colors did not attract so much lint anymore, and I'm happy with these pants. But the lightest color still attracts a ton (which is more noticeable on the light fabric anyway). I have had to return this one. * No stretch in the fabric. I prefer prAna Brion as an alternative to these pants with an upgraded fabric. Other: * 30" waist fits more like a 29", which works for me but maybe not everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from REI Adventures Purchased these pants for traveling, specifically Europe. Material is a quick dry, length fit is well (I'm 6'3") but the ability to move in them seems limited. I'm a fairly well built guy and the pants are tight (I HATE tight pants). These might be fine for a size 32" waste guy, but if you workout a lot and carry around muscle these pants might not be your thing. Construction seems to be well with them, pockets are fairly big. Hidden zipper pocket is nice. Cargo on the leg is good, but I can't really use it because if the tight legs. Wish REI offered these in a slightly looser fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product / Issue with certain colors I have purchased the REI Adventure pants in a variety of colors over the years. As travel pants, none are better in my opinion (fit, construction, pockets, you name it). My only issue relates to colors. The grey (asphalt), depending on the year you buy them (and the dye lot) either has a green or blue cast to it, and does not go well with other greys. Earth tone colors are fine. Also, why no color black?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Pant... but the sizing is off. Own one pair, and have used them on a variety of outings, ranging from casual to full blown backcountry adventure. Thus far they've held up nicely, and handled various conditions better than expected. My ONLY complaint is the sizing... the 32" waist fits more like a 30" pant, which is a bummer each and every time I pop them on after a fresh washing.

Questions & Answers

Do these Pants still have Secret Zipper Pocket INSIDE the Left Hand Pocket? I was at a store the other day, and could not find any Pants that had the Inside Zipper Pocket, but only Outside Zippers.

Asked by: KandTsDAD
Perhaps REIService misunderstood: when I bought my second pair of the current Adventure Pants in early March ’17, there was still a zippered pocket inside the left-hand pocket. (I've bought *seven* pairs of these in various designs since 2005. I didn't even notice the left zipper pocket until I'd worn them for a few days, nor the change/watch pocket for a few weeks.)

Do these make noise when you walk?

Asked by: td12
​These pants do not make more noise than any other pair of pants, but they are a relaxed fit. How much the fabric rubs and brushes against itself may depend heavily on how the pants fit your specific body shape

Why are the REI Adventures Pants only offered in 3 inseam lengths (28,30,32). I'm usually a 32''x32'' at 5'10''. I was looking at a 32'' inseam but then read a 6'3'' person's review that said they fit great. What's your recommendation?

Asked by: HCAM01
As of May 2017, we sell the Adventure Pants in four inseam lengths – 28", 30", 32" & 34". There are multiple waist sizes. We recommend ordering the waist size and inseam length that you typically order in other pants. Based on the information provided, a 32" x 32" is the best choice for you.

It appears that, after 15 years and several iterations, REI is discontinuing these pants. What REI-brand alternatives will be offered?

Asked by: Oldnslow
Yes, the REI Co-op Activator Softshell Pants are the newer replacement for the Adventures Pant in the men's hiking apparel category. The fabric for the Activator is a nylon/poly/spandex blend instead of nylon like the Adventure Pant.
