Patagonia Men's Performance Straight Fit Jeans - Regular
Who says you can't climb in jeans? The Patagonia Men's Performance Straight Fit Jeans feature the classic denim look with the feel of a performance climbing pant. The denim fabric uses an innovative dyeing process that reduces the amount of energy, water, and chemicals needed to be used. This 71% organic/29% COOLMAX® fabric with combines the high breathability and comfort of natural fibres with the moisture-management properties of synthetic, and both feature a mechanical stretch to enhance mobility across all climbing manoeuvres. A DWR (durable water repellent) treatment protects against light rain and dirt for protection whilst abseiling in an unexpected shower and for easier cleaning. Slim-fit is best for lean-to-medium builds.

Patagonia use an innovative dyeing process that usse 84% less water, 30% less energy, and emit 25% less CO2 compared to conventional denim dyeing processes.

DWR (Durable Water Repellent) Finish
An ultra-thin chemical coating applied to technical garments as the first line of defence against wet weather. This coating creates thousands of densely packed polymer “hairs” that prevent water droplets from reaching the surface of the jacket and encourages them to bead together and roll off. The first line of defence against wet weather.

As of May 2016, more than 7,000 people working in factories that make Patagonia clothing had benefited from the program, and as of February 2017, workers have earned an additional $833,000 through Patagonia's Fair Trade program.
