You can adjust the fit with an integrated, thin-webbing belt that Patagonia likes to call “Opposet”. If that doesn’t work for you, the Simul Alpine Pant sports regular belt loops as well. The cuffs are adjustable with cord and stay in place. A feature that I missed, and haven’t used yet, is integrated tie-down loops in the cuffs to attach to boots. Two wide, deep front pockets, two rear pockets, and a zippered right thigh pocket help keep your stuff organized. This pant will literally go everywhere with you.
