The Patagonia Women’s Happy Hike Capris mix lightweight, comfortable fabric with durable style for hikers and backpackers. Flattering lines and cool, stretch construction make these summertime favorites.
Lightweight, comfortable and stretchy, the Patagonia Women’s Happy Hike Capris are perfect for travel, every day use, backpacking, hiking, camping or anything you can throw at them. They are very comfortable material here. It is a mix between polyester and spandex and you have a four way stretch. So with this material as you are moving, it is going to stretch and move with you. And the style lines here are really flattering and really nice. You have got two seams that come down the leg here, so you have a lot of mobility, a lot of stretch and these seams are very durable. So instead of having that one seam that comes down the side, you have got these two, which make them great also for climbing. So you can move and have a lot of mobility with these pants.
The material is very lightweight. So it feels like as I am hiking and moving they are going to be very, very breathable. If they become wet, they are going to dry out really fast. So it makes them great for travel, because you can wash them leave them out to dry and they will dry really, really quickly.
These are capri pants, so they have an inseam of about 22 inches and that is referenced from a size eight. So if you have a lower size the inseam is going to be shorter or longer for bigger sizes. And I am wearing a size six now. It is definitely a relaxed fit, so, you know, these fit me really well. They fit as I would expect Patagonia pants to fit. They come down to a really great length so kind of mid calf. You can even roll them up a little bit, because it is more of a relaxed fit on the bottom. But in the warmest of temperatures these are lightweight enough that they are not going to feel too warm, you are not going to overheat in them, because, you know, they are a little bit longer. But they are definitely a great style, perfect for travel or every day use.
These pants are really streamlined and simple, but they have just enough features. So starting at the top of the pants you have a really nice wide waste band so it is very flattering. The inside of the waist band is a really nice wicking material so that is almost like a mesh. It is also very soft. So it is not going to chafe or anything like that. And you have a button and a zipper here on the inside of the pant, but there is also a stretchy draw cord on the inside. So there is belt loops with these pants, but if you are not wearing them with a belt, you can cinch down the waist with that small draw cord.
There are five pockets, two always open pockets on the front. Those are very stretchy pockets. And on the back it is also an open pocket, but you have a little bit of a flap over top of that pocket for ... just to keep your items inside. And then down on the leg you do have one zippered pocket. And it is big enough for a cell phone or a granola bar. And it is nice. It has that zipper. You know that the items you have in that pocket are going to stay secure.
Overall these are a really great fitting, light weight pant that you can take on any adventure. They are the Women’s Patagonia Happy Hike Capris.
