Size Guide

A curved, high-rise, adjustable waistband to hug your body in all the right ways

A built-in belt to give you just the right fit and prevent sagging

Five pockets, each designed to fit a cell phone: two front pockets; one thigh pocket with zipper; two back pockets—one with a zipper, one with a fold closure.

Key ring for attaching a carabiner for keys or other accessories.

Convertible-to-capri cuffs to adjust for length, weather, or adventure.

Alpine Parrot's signature pops of color throughout.

Fabric & Care

Easy-care, planet-friendly, abrasion-resistant fabric with two-way stretch and UPF 40 protection.

94% nylon / 6% elastane.

Made in a WRAP Certified factory in Honduras.

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.

Size & Fit

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".

Four Stars for Effort

I originally ordered a size too small, and appreciated how quickly ej helped me exchange these pants. Took them out for an inaugural hike, and had some thoughts.

Great quality of material. Love the base color and the pops of color. It's wonderful to find a well-made pant in my size.

The belt needs redesigned. I had to keep retightening it, and at one point, it came fully undone, so I had to stop to rethread it. The zipper also didn't lock as well as it should, so I had to pull it back up a couple of times.

Love the deep pockets! Needs to have a zip pocket on both sides, not just the right side though.

The shallow v-shaped seam on the thighs are BIZARRE. They serve no functional purpose that I can figure out. I could feel them as I walked, and they tightened on my legs when I squatted down or sat. They're actually the reason I probably won't order another pair of these pants anytime soon.

All in all, I appreciate the effort to make a high-quality hiking pant for plus sized women. For me, it's not quite there yet, but I appreciate the effort.

Green plus size cargo pants

These are amazing! My parents are taking my kids and me to Africa for vacation and I needed some either green or khaki cargo pants. Unfortunately what i found was that the norm was that they don't make room for curves in other brands. I ordered these as last resort and I'm happy I did. Yes they are expensive but they fit perfectly around my curves and are comfortable to sit and stand and walk in. The material is also high quality. Can't wait to hike in them on our safari.

The only thing I hike in!

I'm 5'3 with very short legs and a larger belly than hips..these are still too long (my mom hemmed them 4in for me!) but other than that they're a dream. The built in belt is great because I am very sensitive to things feeling too tight, so I size up and wear them loose during the drive or calmer walks but tighten the belt when being active. This is my second pair and the first one has held up like a dream with many adventures and washes. I agree that back pockets being a bit more on the side would make them more comfortable when sitting with things in them.

Love them!

I really like them but need you to offer them in short size ~had to shorten them a lot!

Perfect fit!

These hiking pants were exactly what I was looking for! Perfect length and perfect fit for my curvy pear shape!
