My new holiday pant

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34x32

I love these pants, the adjustable sides make them great for hitting that turkey dinner and opening the waist up. Super comfortable really stretchy and have a great fit. I do wish they had a slightly deeper front pocket. The back pockets have a zipper so you won't loose your stuff and the left leg pocket also has a zipper large enough to throw a phone in, zip shut and hike the trail, climb whatever and maybe even ride your bike without getting the leg in the chainring.

My only complaint was the plastic buckles on the side of the pant for the adjustable waist had the drawstrings threaded incorrectly. I simply undid the drawstrings and reinstalled the correct way and now they work perfect.

I ordered 34x32 I am 5'9" 175 pounds with a 34' waist and 32" Inseam.

Side cinch doesn't work

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 32" 30"

My main issue is that the pull tabs on the sides don't work at all. I got these hoping that I could cinch them down without a belt but the straps slide right through the plastic piece and don't hold. Also the side pockets are very shallow and made me afraid I would lose anything in my pocket when I sat down.

Hi Michael, my pants where the same way. It seems that the draw strap was routed incorrectly on the side of the pant through the buckle. It's simple fix to simply reinstall the draw string in the loops. This is what I did to mine and they work great now! If you need help with that you can reach out to me at

This is the first pair of pants I've bought from Basin&Range but they definitely won't be the last. They fit better than I'd imagined, can't wait to get them outside. They're super light and stretchy, the pockets are convenient and they seem like they can take a beating. Highly recommend them if you're looking for solid hiking/climbing pants.

Good mountain pant

    These are a good option for lightweight, hot weather summer hiking. The stretch should make them decent climbing pants, too, but I haven't gotten them out on the wall, yet. The cut felt pretty athletic to me, and my only gripe is that the pockets are a bit small.

    What are the leg opening measurements for the 32W/30L pant? Am trying to determine if they are a slim fit, or a baggy old school cut.

    Hey Deb! These pants have a straight cut and the leg measures 15 3/4" in total circumference. Hope this helps!

    Very satisfied with these pants, they're real stylish and made to be put through the wringer with all kinds of activities. I am real excited to climb and hike in them as the comfort and stretch exceed my expectations.

    Stretch, durable, and look good

    I'm a big fan of these pants. They look sleek and clean so I can wear them to work or around town, and also have some good stretch to them so I can wear them climbing or for other adventures. They fit well and are comfortable because of that stretch as well! since the stretch Lightweight and breathable which is always a great plus! Definitely have become a staple of my wardrobe!
