I work in these, I play in this, and I have taken 8 dumps while wearing these. The gusseted crotch is a very nifty feature, as it keeps these pants from the same fate as many past pants: crotch rips. These pants are a bit expensive, but they are worth the price really. I haven't taken them off for almost a month now. The integrated belt is super nice too, because it don't need a belt now.
I work as an outdoor educator so I do a lot of work outside. These pants have been absolutely phenomenal. They dry quickly, are very comfortable, have roomy pockets, and allow me to freely move so I have hike and run with the crazy kids I work with. And they lot really nice, not to baggy like other brands. All in all I love these pants and would recommend them to any one.
Ordered these pants and received them promptly. I can even begin to explain how comfortable these pants are. I am 5'11 and 160lb and I bought the medium. They fit perfect. The elasticity of these pants is amazing. Another great thing about them is that they don't look like stretchy pants. The only time I am not wearing these now is 9-5 when I am at work. I will definitely be grabbing another pair of these pants in the khaki color as I bought the charcoal version. Dont hesitate when looking at these pants, they are well worth it as you can see from 99% of customer reviews. The zippers and pockets are well made and durable. The pocket placement is perfect so that nothing overlaps when you have your pockets stuffed full. The little built-in in belt is pretty nifty too. Recommend all day. Eat, sleep, and live in these pants.
I climb multi pitch, work at a bar, and do late night Tai Chi.... I do it better when I am wearing the Prana Stretch Zion Pants. If you find yourself unable to bring your knee above your shoulder and your facing the crux...your going to wish you were wearing these!!
I bit the bullet and bought a pair of these six months ago, and now I have three pairs. They're great for outdoor activities, especially climbing because of the stretch fabric and non-relaxed fit. The adjustable waistband is a nice touch too. We'll see how long they hold up since they're very lightweight, but so far I've found nothing better.
"These pants are like the energizer bunny"
I have had these pants for 4 years now and there is not wear and tear on them at all!!!! These were the first pants that I bought for climbing. Until these I had no pants other than athletic shorts to climb in. So for a year or two these pants were what I climbed in every trip. Still to this day I wear them camping, hiking, climbing, and even out and about because they look very nice as well. Overall I could not ask for a better set of pants!
I've worn these pants rock climbing, hiking, trekking and they just haven't given me a single problem. The amount of abuse they have received, lesser pants would be taters. The stretch material is really cool in my opinion. They also look good. I wear them when my regular clothes are dirty and I'm too lazy to do laundry.
I've never worn Prana clothes before, but these pants make me want to never take them off. I still might. If you're a climber, I really recommend these pants. Super comfy and stretchy for those "check me out" heel and toe hooks. Get them.
Do you like comfy pants?, Do you like climbing?, Do you like still having skin on your legs after slab falls? -Then these may be the pants for you.The pants fit great the button roll up pant legs allow you to make a great fashion statement either in the office or in line for miguels pizza. They are thicker and more durable than some of the other climbing pants have have bought which is nice, except for they can get a bit hot during summer climbing, But if the weather has a slight chill to it you will be comfortable.
Prana's Zion Stretch Pants are without a doubt my favorite pair of pants. Their stretchy nature allows one to move with freedom not normally attributed to pants, which really comes in handy on those up hill hikes. They are breathable so wearing them in warmer temps isn't that much of an issue, also if you get too hot you can roll up the bottom of the legs. Water wicks right off of these bad boys due to the water repellent finish. These pants are both functional and stylish that can take you from the trail to the city. Also the are resistant to wrinkling, so if you wear them multiple days in a row(which I do) they still look like new. I highly recommend you purchase these fine trousers.
