PatagoniaQuandary Pant - Men's

Looks good for work, feels good for play.

Wear the Patagonia Men's Quandary Pant for a day at the office, and then duck out early for an evening hike in the woods. This versatile year-round pant is made of lightweight stretch fabric with a DWR treatment that repels light moisture. Articulated knees and a gusseted crotch allow for freedom of movement whether you're hustling down the stairs before your employees catch you, or climbing a steep mountain trail.

Is the material more like soft-shell or just nylon? The description mentions stretch which makes them sounds soft-shellish

Best Answer

Hey Chris - These Quandary Pants have a bit of spandex in them to make them stretchy, but they are primarily nylon and I would not consider them a softshell. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

Does backcountry carry these in odd sizes? Looking for a 35-32 thanks -Steve

I'm looking for a durable pair of pants that dry (relatively) quickly. Any word on how fast these dry? I'll be fishing, hiking through rivers, and rafting - getting wet is a given. But I like to wake up to dry pants.

This would be an awesome pant for what you're looking for. They barely soak up any water, and when they do they dry super quickly.
