Arc'teryx Palisade Pant Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

My favorite hiking pants. I also got a pair of Palisade shorts , which are also excellent.
What I like:
- Excellent athletic fit. Good looking and very comfortable. I got the light carbide color which looks great.
- Clearly designed for outdoor use and well suited to backpacking, with water repellant quick drying fabric, light weight, a minimalist built in belt, and just enough stretch.
- No velcro. Zippers and so much classier.
- Pockets are lined with nylon, not mesh.
- They're clearly well made, using a mix of lamination and stitching. Still, I wish they still made all their stuff in Canada.
What I don't like:
- The built in nylon belt doesn't hold position well. I found a rubber O-ring can be wrapped around the plastic buckle to make it hold better.
- The cargo pocket zipper pulls are exposed and sit in the middle of your thighs when the pockets are closed. I don't like the way they rub against the bottom of my desk. Admittedly this isn't exactly the kind of thing you'd care about when out for a hike, but I like to wear these around town and even at work, so I notice these things.
The pocket configuration is completely different than last year's model. These have two ordinary front pockets without zippers, just like any casual pants, plus two zippered cargo pockets, but they don't have back pockets at all. Back pockets aren't really that useful anyway. Sitting on your wallet isn't good for your back, and sitting on your cell phone is a good way to crack the screen, so what can you really do with them anyway? Plus they're useless when wearing a backpack.

I bought these pants to replace my old ex-officio hiking pants.
The characteristics I was looking for were: light, resistant to abrasion, capable of retaining warmth yet breathable, flexible but not too baggy (a lot of American models tend to be too baggy for me these days).
I also wanted the pants to have many pockets, yet still be stylish enough for casual wear in the city for my travels around the globe.
These pants fit that description almost perfectly.They are not as baggy as the Ramparts from Arcteryx, so they are better for my intended use - but this comes at a price - they are more expensive.
I am using them right now for an extended trip, and they are so wonderful that I have just ordered a second pair. They are very light,so you can carry many pairs without adding much weight - a welcome characteristic both for backpacking adventures and standard overseas tourism.
The Light carbide color I got look very nice.

I've been searching for the perfect hiking pant for some time - this is definitely it. Sits up on the waist with a very comfortable fleece lining. The cargo pockets have a slim profile when not in use, but hold plenty when needed (perfect size for a passport with cash / travel docs). The material of the pants is synthetic, light and comfortable. Doesn't absorb odor, which is nice (put that to the test in Africa with one pair over 6 days, no showers and plenty of dirt). Food, sweat, blood, dirt all come out in the wash, no problem. I love them so much I bought a second pair.

Wore these pants hiking and trekking in Ecuador for two weeks. Great fit,the zip pockets are convenient for stashing a variety of items, and the weight of the material is just about right for hiking and knocking around town. I normally wear a size 34 waist, but the 36 waist fit me better in these pants. The only downside - very expensive. I'll watch for them to go on sale and then purchase another pair.

I bought these pants several years ago and so far I've used them on all my hiking and paddling tours. So far they have been at Elbrus, Kilimanjaro, Rwenzori, Swedish and Norwegian mountains and the archipelago of Stockholm, Sweden. Non of my previous pants have ever survived that long and they are still OK. I wonder if I should by another pair though, just in case they would stop producing them.

Peter Hellstrand at on 04/06/2013

reluctant to buy these. The 5 zip pockets were bomb. Have two pairs I wear for prescribed backcountry use and when I'm not in my work attire. Tell Arc'Teryx to go back a revision. Bump the price but put the 5 zips back. There is no Arc'Teryx substitute, especially for an inseam challenge gentleman like myself. OK You win, this is still the best backcountry pant for me!

Bob Weston at on 01/08/2013

Great pants. I wear them for everything. Hiking, archery, bouldering, banjo playing and everyday work. My kids always ask me why I always wear the same pants,( I own 5 pair) and I tell them it's for the comfort. Plus chicks dig them! The 2012 version fit better than last year's cut, less baggy in the seat! I like the gray color best.

I have just spent the last three weeks paddling around the Gulf of California (Isla Tiburon) and these pants are the best. Lightweight for sun protection but durable enough to take the abuse of hiking around the mountains. They were my go to pants every single day. 21 days in the field and still going strong.

This was a gift for my boyfriend and I just wanted to go with something I'd be sure he would like it. I was right! He does not stop talking all the greatest things about these pants, how soft and comfy they are. I can tell, he is in love with these pants!

Negative Reviews:

They changed them from the last version. There were three additional zipper pockets on the last version. The two front hand pockets were zippered and deeper on the last model. Plus there was a zippered back pocket. They also feel like the rise has been shortened.
The old style pants were great pants for traveling. These will not be nearly as nice. I have to keep them cause I am leaving on a trip, but next time I am just going to REI so that I am not surprised by a model change.

I have one pair of the Palisade pants and 3 pairs of the shorts, all of which I love for casual wear.They're extremely comfortable, look great, and hold items securely in their 5 zippered pockets.
That was then. This is now: no zippers on the slash pockets; no more back pocket The 5 zips were a unique feature that Arc'teryx chose to change. Why? To save a few bucks? They never asked me. I'll wait until they mend - or zip- their ways before buying more.
