Jeans are the last thing you want to slip into when going on a long hike, riding on a single trail, or doing any activity that requires flexible movement. They just don’t wear well in those situations. Unless, of course, you’re wearing Patagonia’s Performance Straight Fit Jeans, an erstwhile normal-looking pair of denim pants with the flexibility to keep you comfortable when you’re staying active.
Unlike regular jeans, it’s made from a blend of cotton and technical Coolmax T400 polyester, giving it the necessary stretch to support your movements while managing moisture a whole lot better. Whether you’re skateboarding to school, bicycling to work, or doing yoga stretches during a lull in the ballgame, this thing lets you do that while decked out in a proper pair of jeans.
Along with the stretchy and sweat-wicking material, the Patagonia Performance Straight Fit Jeans get a DWR coating for shedding any water that catches on the surface, making for quite the technical garment to support a whole host of activities. It’s done up like any traditional pair of straight-fit jeans, with five-pocket styling, a zip fly, and a high rise that sits right on the waist, along with a streamlined comfort fit through the seat and thigh that tapers into a straight leg from the knee downwards. Features include an antique nickel shank button closure, reinforced lower portions on the rear pockets, double-needle belt loops, and antique nickel piton rivets.
Available now, the Patagonia Performance Straight Fit Jeans are priced at $119.
