Wash in cold water with a mild detergent. Tumble dry on low heat or hang to dry. We don’t recommend ironing your pants, but you can use the nylon setting (low heat) for a quick touch-up if needed.
Tested on hundreds of fit models and developed from the ground up, the Ponderosa Pants come in two unique Fit Styles to celebrate your shape and move with you.
We highly recommend checking out the size chart and choosing the size that fits you best, according to your measurements.
For a more leggings-like fit, choose a size down; for a looser fit, choose a size up. If your measurements are a perfect match for a given size, they'll fit like a pair of stretch jeans.
When rolled up, the inseam of the pants decrease by approximately 10".
