Baja Pant

The Cotopaxi Men's Baja Pant is an ultralight softshell suited for all sorts of adventures ranging from gym climbing to traveling around the globe. Cotopaxi made this pant to move with all your high-steps and heel hooks on the climb, and it resists light moisture to help keep you dry whenever it rains. The knit waistband feels comfy underneath harnesses or backpacks, and the concealed security pocket hides away cash and identification when you're traveling in more public spaces.

Bad fit among other bad things

I returned this product before using it

I have other Cotopaxi pants in size L, but these were a really strange fit. Tight in the upper thigh and crotch. I’m 6’ 1”, 210, and these were really uncomfortable. Besides the fit, these have nothing on my Subo pants in terms of comfort. The internal pull is weird. The waistband is strange too. Do not recommend. Returned!

Wow are these nice. Taper

Wow are these nice. Taper down the leg makes for a great fit.

Comfortable overall

I’m 6’3” and about 210 lbs and I had to exchange my L for an XL since the L were like wearing skinny jeans. The only problem with the XL for me is that while they are the appropriate length, the waist is super loose and the drawstring is so stretchy that I have to pull out like a foot of it and tie it off to keep them up. That’s not a huge deal though and they are quite comfortable for just wearing around as well as running and moving around in.

Amazing pants!

They are a perfect blend of tough, stretchy and shed debris and hair easily. Great mid-range warmth- I've already gotten a couple runs in 26 to 32 degree weather with no problem. You would need tights to be comfortable with low activity or high activity to dip into the low 20s or teens, but it also means that they are perfectly comfortable to wear around the house without getting hot. Everything I wanted!

I returned mine.

I found these pants to be uncomfortable which was surprising because I own a lot of Cotopaxi shirts and they are very comfortable. These pants were scratchy and not soft. I also did not like the fit so I returned my pair. Maybe you’ll like these, They didn’t work for me.

Baja pant

Super comfy and stretches with activity. Just enough material to keep you warm on cool nights but thin enough to breathe. Great pants!

I love these pants, they fit me great and they are made with excellent materials that make for a premium feel. They are breathable but are willing to take a beating, as I found out hiking in Olympic National Park in Washington. However, sizing may be an issue for some. I am incredibly average when it comes to size, so these pants were perfect for me. However, if you happened to have really long skinny legs or just big legs that are short, you would maybe want to see if you could find a place to try them on before you get them. Overall, however, I would recommend them. If they were less expensive, I'd be stocking my dresser with them!

Nice pants, good materials

Pants fit well in the waist and legs, but are very long on me (size small, 5'3", 135 lb), but I found that rolling the ankles works pretty well. I hope in the future this company will offer pants with different inseams/short sizes. The pants feel very nice and are cool in humid weather but keep the wind off when its chillier. The orange color is excellent and works surprisingly well as a 'neutral' color in my wardrobe.

Top of my list!

I have both colors available, and not only are they a great fit, the colors are true to photos and the pant is great in colder and warmer temps. Perfect hybrid pant!
