The Ponderosa Pants are Alpine Parrot's flagship, award-winning product that were designed from scratch to shake up the industry.

Here at Vampire Outdoors we absolutely love them! And have been early awaiting our new stock with improved fit.

The Ponderosa Pants 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, Alpine Parrot has updated the fit to have more room in the waist across both Fit Styles, and a better fit in the hips for Mountain Fit, so be sure to check out the size chart (even if you already own a pair!) to get your perfect fit.

  • 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 mobile 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 and Fit

Tested on hundreds of fit models and developed from the ground up, the Ponderosa Pants come in two unique Fit Styles - Mountain and Forest - to celebrate your shape and move with you.

NOTE - Ponderosa Pants use US sizing!

To get the best fit please consult the size chart and choose the size and fit style that best fits your measurements. Do not just pick your usual dress size - Ponderosa Pants use US sizing! The hip and thigh measurement is the limiting factor - choose based on these measurements. The waistband is adjustable and can cinch-down comfortably if you are in-between sizes.

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 decreases by approximately 10 inches/25cm.

Fabric and Care

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

Main material: 94% nylon, 6% elastane 

Waistband: 86% nylon,14% spandex 

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.

Made in a WRAP Certified factory in Honduras.
