Patagonia Rock Guide Pants 2011

The Patagonia Rock Guide Pants weigh 302g (size men’s L); stretch nylon is very comfy and resists light water; zipped thigh and seat pocket; two non-zipped hip pockets; belt loops; diamond crotch; articulated knee. But no ankle cuff adjustment; not as water-resistant or warm as soft shell pants; pockets are relatively small; no reinforcement.

The Patagonia Rock Guide Pants are light and comfortable, but they lack the performance features of some others.
