The Ponderosa Pants are our flagship, award-winning product that were designed from scratch to shake up the industry. The "Pondos," as we lovingly call them, are a wardrobe staple whether you're traveling, summiting a new peak, walking your dog around the block, or grabbing a coffee with a friend. Featuring an abrasion-resistant fabric, 5 pockets, a built-in belt and more, they were made with extensive feedback from real, amazing people, and were designed to be your adventure bffs.

For Spring 2024, we've updated the fit to have more room in the waist across both Fit Styles, so be sure to check out the size chart (even if you already own a pair!) to get your perfect fit. 

Free returns & exchanges after they ship in 2024.

Size Guide
Fabric & Care

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

94% nylon / 6% elastane body; 86% nylon / 14% spandex waistband.

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.


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.

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".
