Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down the BEST pants I have ever worn I am new to Arc'teryx, but I won't be a stranger after buying these pants. They are extremely comfortable, while keeping their shape and flattering appearance after multiple days of wear. I wore them on a 3 day hiking, canoeing, and portaging trip. Not once did I find myself adjusting them from riding up, or falling down. By far though, my favourite feature was their breathability, and quick drying. After 1 km of portaging through trails, I can honestly say I was sweating like a beast...but my Arc'teryx pants kept me cool, and didn't stick to my skin - then they dried incredibly fast afterwards. I just took them out for a test climb today, and the Parapet pants were victorious! Breathable with sufficient stretch so that I wasn't limited at all in my movements. Thank you for such a functional & flattering pair of pants Arc'teryx! I look forward to expanding my wardrobe with your gear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful pants for traveling. I love these pants. They fit well and are perfect for traveling. I can wear them over and over and they hold their shape. It is no problem to hand wash them as they easily dry overnight. No problem if you are caught in the rain, they dry so fast you hardly have time to get cold. My only complaint is the back pockets. They are not useful because they are too small and also there is no way to secure them. It would be nice to have a flap or a zipper. Also, the small pleat is not very flattering. If the back pockets were more functional these pants would be absolutely perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable in Humidity These were my first Arc'teryx pants and were beyond expectations. They kept me cool, dry, and comfortable hiking in Costa Rica. They worked beautifully both in rain and hot humidity. These pants were easy to move in, easy to keep clean, and looked more flattering than expected. I imagine they will also work well in the desert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favourite Hiking Pant I had the previous version of these pants (forget the name) and this version fits much better, more roomier for those of us with curves. Delighted they now come in various lengths as well, no more hemming! Purchased 2 pairs right away. The capris tend to be a bit bigger around the waist in the same size, and not worth sending back, I'll use a belt. Looking forward to wearing these all hiking season! My only wish is they would come in other colours such as a khaki and a chocolate brown as the previous version did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and comfortable I love these pants, they are super lightweight and comfortable for those hot days. The pale gray color is nice and they are a flattering fit. Very happy with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I got these pants for hiking. But I think I will wear them for lots of things. Very comfortable I love all the pockets, the gusseted crotch, and the length! I was able to order them with a 35" inseam. I normally buy jeans with 34" inseam so though I may have to get them hemmed but they are good. The 32" inseam I tried in the store looked like flood pants on me wayyy to short.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from buttons pinch The two buttons squeeze together and pinch my stomach everytime I sit down. The last time I wore the pants I was left with a really uncomfortable sore. I might have a coupel of pounds I could lose around my middle, but over all am a pretty small person, so I don't know why they pinch me. I have other similar pants with two buttons, that do not pinch. Otherwise the fit is great, and I loved them for climbing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice matrial, but some flaws It is true that these dry really fast, have great breathability and it is wonderfull to be able to get them with short inseam when you are 5,3. They also have a great fit on the backside, that is quite flattering. But there are some points that make me regret this buy. As you can see on the model, the pants tend tp make a horisontal fold just below the zipper. They do that on me too, as do many other Arcteryx pants, and it does really not look that great. Furthermore, the two buttons pinch my stomach every time i sit down, as a earlier reviewer also wrote. I think i could live with these two issues for the benefit of getting a pair of pants that is actually my length, but there are two more thing that kind of put me off. One is that they start to smell really fast, they are only good for one day in mid temperature range. The other is that they make quite a lot of noise. Way more than other hiking pants do. Washing them quite a few times does not seem to help. What I really enjoy in nature is the peace and quiet, which is not possible wearing theese pants. I bought them for a walking safari, but had to use another pair since my travelling fellows kept sending med looks....

Inseam? 32 inch? Is the frost color white? I like the white but am worried about getting them dirty often!

Asked by: RenaeK
The inseam is 32 inches. The color Frost is light grey.
