Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. It's cute to think of a fabric as being afraid of water. Now if only they could make a bearphobic coating. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

These are great knickers. Perfect for a day of yoga, then climbing, then relaxing with friends.These are amazing pants. I bought them on a whim recommendation from a friend, but they are quickly becoming my favorite pants for climbing as well as just wearing. They cut just below the knee so they are great for when its too warm for pants but too cold for shorts. This also makes them perfect for a climbing and a good knee bar rest. They don't rip - must be some steel woven into these pants. I've fallen hard while trail running in them and no damage done despite the fact that I feel pretty hard on some rocks and debris.,,,,Bottom line. If you are serious about climbing, serious about yoga, serious about looking good, or you just want some sweet knickers get these pants.

I LOVE my new Nemesis Knickers!I have been looking for a long short. These are perfect. Below my knee, wonderful material that stretches and bends, light weight, packable and I know they will hold up to and for many activities. The fit was perfect based on the size chart. I did look at that first.,,Also, to make things even better, I am a very active woman. 6' and not heavy. I usually were men's 32 waist size jeans. Women's shorts/pants tend to have a skinny waist and lots of material for the hips. My body style is not that...So, men's pants fit best. They are easily a cross-over look. Not at all 'tough of rugged' looking. Just nice....REALLY, just perfect! I am very happy with this selection.

Great Pants! Probably crafted in climbing heaven!I have had a pair of knicker pants(Man-pris) That I wore for a couple years. Everything that they lacked, these have, and MORE! They fit true to size, are comfortable, and as durable as they come. They have the flexibility of climbing in shorts, matched with the protection of climbing in pants. Whether its stemming, heel hooking, or knee barring, these pants have you covered! There is no excess fabric around the hips, so your harness goes on with ease, and stays comfy longer! The pockets are deep, one zippered, perfect for the valuables. I have spent a lot of time looking for the perfect pair of knickers. These are it! Save yourself the time and buy a pair, No chance of disappointment!,,

No homoHere's the deal. I bought these thinking they would make me some sort of super awesome ninja climber, but when I got them I think my man parts shrunk a bit. I’m 5'8" and these are to the bottom of my calf. With a harness on you can kinda see my stuff. A little weird. When I wear my boots I look like I hiked up my pants to avoid a flood. When I throw my rock shoes on I look like a fairy ballerina doing pirouettes. I just googled how to spell pirouettes so don't think any differently about me. Anywho...now for the good. They are super stretchy and amazingly comfortable. If I was a crime fighter in the night I would probably wear these. Only at night tho...so the bad guys couldn't see my meat.

Nice Stretchy Pant.These knickers are great. If you are in to climbing whether at the gym or on the rock these are the pants that you will want to have on. I also have the 3/4 basin pant made by Mountain Hardwear. While I love the way the Mountain Hardwear pants look, the Prana knickers are the ones I wear to climb in. The stretchy material allows for flexibility when trying difficult moves. I have found that the Mountain Hardwear pants restricts me a bit. I wear a size 33-34 and I had to send a size large back and get the size mediums.

Climbing monkey's best friendThese pants rock for rock! It was a hot day. Was climbing a hard, overhanging route. Sweating bullets and about to fall. Bam, managed to get a knee-bar and a no-hand rest. Pants stretch to support the crazy climbing moves, breath well and sit comfortably. Cons unlike Prana's Mantis Knicker, these pants only have one side pocket. One pocket is for a camera. Where should my power bar go? Also, the zipper is a little harder to open than velcro.

Spiffing KnickersI love these 'knickers'. The material is durable, the construction thoughtful, and the fit comfortable, but not obnoxiously baggy. The integrated belt works quite well for an integrated belt; assuming it holds (it should), it is a nice feature. The toothbrush holder on the left leg is also a nice touch; my dental hygienist and the girls at the gym seem more tolerant of my presence since my acquisition of the Nemesis Knicker.

AWESOMEPrana products have always treated me well, these shorts are no exception. Great fit, extremely durable and comfortable. The material is soft but stretchy and tough, Ive gone hiking, camping, bouldering and everything in between and they haven't frayed from rocks or the abuse i put them through, i have 4 pairs of these and the first pair is as good as the last. Definitely buy, great choice.
