The critic's choice for hard-charging descents and high-flying aerials, the Patagonia Rubicon Pants for Men are made from a durable, 2-layer waterproof/breathable 100% stretch-woven nylon shell with excellent resistance to gravity-oriented locales. The interior is lined above the knees with brushed polyester mesh for light insulation and efficient wicking. Thigh vents, easily adjustable below a hip belt, regulate warm air on the uphills. Scuff guards protect from abrasion; fully featured gaiters hold firm with gripper elastic. At the waist, a soft tricot lining glides smoothly against skin. Articulated knees. Loops on the rear yoke seam connect to the powder skirt on all Patagonia® Ski/ Snowboard jackets. Two handwarmer pockets and two thigh pockets (one with an integrated pass holder) keep you organized.

Bomb Proof
January 17, 2011

The rubicon pants are built for durability. A little stiff out of the package but have broken in nicely. My old pants were acting like sponges so these are a nice change. Fit is true to size and are really not that baggy. Built for function not for style. Wish vents had mesh lining but not that big of a deal. At the sale price you can't go wrong!

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value

Great pants
June 30, 2007

Sturdy and high quality. I tend to go through ski pants quickly because my inside edge cuts the cuff of the opposite leg. These pants have really good protection against that. And they look and feel great.

Great backcountry pants
June 01, 2009

These pants are made with a super tough material that withstands snags and rips on even the burliest bushwhacks in the backcountry. The thigh vents are well designed for optimal heat shedding on those hot spring days and the waist tabs provide a superior fit so you don't need a belt or suspenders. Only downside I've encountered is the crouch of the pants tends to ride a little high. Other than that, I love them.

Super heavy duty cordura style outer fabric that repels moisture and branches equally well. Generous fit with several pockets in useful locations. Great pants for those who spend a better part of the winter on the hill.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever

Perfect Balance
December 07, 2009

Best snowboarding pants I've used. Moderate insulation - handle cold days with just long underwear underneath. Not too bulky. More trim than a lot of "boarder" pants without being too snug.

Great Pants
November 28, 2011

These pants are super tough as well as waterproof. I haven't worn them in super cold temps yet but I think they will be perfect. My last Patagonia pants lasted 10+ seasons with at least 30 days a season, these seem like they will go even longer. They are a little on the baggy side if you want something very fitted.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance

Great pants, tough as nails and usefull pockets.
March 27, 2008

Just got back form a week in Jackson Hole Wy. The Rubicon pants ate up everything Jackson had to offer. Skied in every condition from blue bird sun to waist deep powder and everything in between. I love the pockets and how they are angled to be accessable when you are on the chair lift. Only negative is the size. I am a 32 waist and ordered the 32. I had to cinch up the waist tabs all the way to get a proper fit (glad that option was there or would have needed suspenders). Overall a great ski pant.

Great Fit! Great Pants!

Great pants, Look and feel. Definitely cut for movement. Only complaint is they look almost navy blue. They feel very durable more so than any pant I have ever felt.
