Arc'teryx Perimeter Pant -
Log mile after mile of intense trekking, get back to camp, change your socks, but leave your Arc’teryx Perimeter Pants where they are, because they are also perfectly suited for a bit of lounging. Designed with a mobility-centric focus, these pants also include the added bonuses of comfort and durability. This means the Perimeter Pant can take on your most challenging hike and mesh well with your most comfortable folding camp chair too. Polyurethane fabrics team up with stretchy nylon to give you a massive range of motion that is only enhanced by the gusseted crotch and an articulated pattern that all adds up to unrestricted mobility. Loads of breathability comes standard with the lightweight, quick-drying materials, so the Perimeter Pants are ready for action anytime you are. An athletic fit eliminates any unnecessary bulk that normally gets in the way with other trekking pants, but a plethora of pockets also give you the option to load up on any goods you may need out on the trail. Whether you are tackling a mean trek or simply celebrating the completion of one with some well-deserved relaxation, the Arc’teryx Perimeter Pants provide all the flexible, comfortable ruggedness you could possibly need.

Positive Reviews:

I like these pants. They fit me well and seemed sized about right, but they shrunk quite a bit in the wash, at least 1" in length. Dryer was on low temp, and I've never had shrinkage with Prana, Columbia, Patagonia, or North Face pants, so I was unpleasantly surprised to suddenly have high water pants, when these are the most expensive hiking pants I've purchased. Luckily, they have a generous bottom seam, so I could have them let back out to the original length. They're a little snugger in the waist/hips area now, but they have a great stretchiness so they remain comfortable, and I still like wearing them. Mine seem pretty durable out of the dryer, but I've not tested them much yet.

Hands down the most comfortable pants i have ever worn. very pricy, but very worth it. Nice little mountain biking pedal slip tore up my shin through the pants. pants did not suffer any damage at all. (not sure how that is possible). Almost perfect fit. They run a little bit short in the legs. i typically wear a 30/30 - inseam just slightly too short - i bought 2 pairs, one 30 one 32 inseam - 30s about an inch short, 32s an inch long. easy fix with a little hem work. highest recommendation.

I should have bought this one size bigger in the waist so that it would shrink perfectly in the wash. Unfortunately, I bought it in my regular go-to size and had to return it after it shrank one full size during the first wash.
Everything else was awesome.

Wore these first time for a short fall hike, snagged on some brambles. Pants have a little pulled thread. Not a big deal, still wearable, but hardly a rugged adventure. I expected better. They did shed light rain well and are comfortable.

I bought Perimeter pants for travel in Europe. Nice fit, nice feel, dry quickly. But after washing and drying, they were signficantly shorter. Wouldn't be a problem except they apparently aren't made in 34" length. Why not??

This is a lightweight, stretch pant that works as a casual pant and climbing pant.
Made in Bangladesh.
89% nylon, 11% polyurethane.

Negative Reviews:

Yes, the material is neat and, yes, they are light and stretchy, but it's been a bit too many and too long of companies having 15 versions of any given garment. Case in point - these pants. Why not just put zippers on the Rampart pant cargo pockets, insert a stretchy panel in the right spot and call it done (basically - make a slightly modified version of the older Palisade pants)? Instead, Arc'teryx makes another version of pants, with a different pocket pattern (which is almost useless), different cut and different "purpose." Get the Rampart (or maybe, Palisade) or just keep your current hiking/backpacking pants and save some money.

I've had two pairs of these pants and both times the stitching came out after one or two uses at the rear part of the gusseted crotch. And this after only casual use. Do not buy!
