"These Pranas are my go to for casual style and comfort"
So I initially purchased the prana zion stretch pants. these are mostly cargo looking style yet are theeeeeee most comfortable pants I've ever owned. Then I was told by the sales staff that the Brion's are the exact same feel yet without the cargo look, so I bought to in different colors. LOVE THEM! If Im not going out hiking or fishing, these bad boys are on me. I would like to see a more sleeker fit or tapered down the leg rather. I'd love to get me some of these in black. till then, my seemstress can probably make it happen.
I needed some new climbing pants and these are great, I used them for a 4 day trip recently and keep your legs protected but allow you to stretch a lot more than jeans. Great pants for anyone who prefers pants, these are even great for wearing around town too. Sizing was nomal I am 5 11 and got the standard length 28 waist (true to any standard sizing).
I have the Prana zion stretch convertible pants that I use for the outdoors and bought these for casual wear/travel. They're very similar in material, construction and weight which makes them really comfortable, lightweight and have a little stretch. They look much like any pare of jeans or other casual cotton pants but offer more manouverability and comfort. They pack up small and are hard to wrinkle - perfect for long car rides, air travel, etc. but would also be an option for the outdoors if you would rather go with a more "normal" pant look without some of the features like zip-off legs, cargo pockets or the built in waist drawstring.
"I feel limber as a cat when i put these on."
The waterproofing is adequate, the material is thin, and just stretchy enough. I have huge thighs (completely average thighs) and they are hugged by the pant, but i don't mind it. I seriously could wear these to bed and not even notice, absolutely no restriction. Would not recommend hiking/climbing in cold weather with these (reference how thin i said the material is). Totally great for spring/summer/indoor climbing sessions.
"I just did a 10 day expedition in Colorado. This is the only pair of pants I brought."
In all sincerity, these pants are flawless. They breathe well, stretch even better, and look EVEN BETTER. Seriously, the perfect pants. I wear them every chance I get, and even when they are dirty, they don't smell too bad thanks to the material they are made out of. Like I said, I just got back from an expedition in Colorado where me and two other guys spent 10 days living out of the back of an SUV. During that time, we mountain biked, kayaked, and climbed our pants off (pun intended). I very intentionally planned to take only this pair of pants to put them to the true test. They performed flawlessly. I was able to hike, climb, and bike in them with no problem whatsoever, and they were even tough enough to take my tumbles without so much as a snag. I decided immediately to come home and write a review on them. I literally just walked in the door (still wearing the pants), sat down, and started typing. Long story short, buy these. They are the last pants you will ever want or need.
Got these pants last week from a local store because they were almost half off. They are comfortable, flexible, and fit well. There is extra material in the crotch so they are always comfortable when you are sitting down (no bunching). I climbed in them and they worked great. Can be worn as a nice pair of pants or something to go outside in. Definitely get these for any and all occasions.
"I'm a huge fan of prAna gear! I'm relatively new to the brand, but so far so good!!"
I bought these pants in a 33 neglecting for some reason to remember that I'm 6'4 I bought them in a 33 short when I should have not been in such a hurry and got the 33 long, but I couldn't wait for them to get to me! I love the material and the fit is AMAZING!! Minus the fact that I ordered them in a smaller size I'm in the process of shipping them back to get the correct size! Ohhhh and the material is soooooo comfortable.
