Mountain Hardwear Dynama Capri - Women's

High-step or dyno. Luckily this capri can do both.

The Mountain Hardwear Women's Dynama Capri has the stretch that dynamic climbs call for. Its lightweight stretch fabric has a DWR coating to shed the falling raindrops that ruin your sending sessions. A low-profile wide waistband gives you a flattering figure at the climbing gym.

Holy Stretch!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

These things rock. The material is light, breathable, stretchy, flattering, comfortable, breezy, and just all around lovely. The waistband is stretchy and just the right thickness- about 2 inches.
I recently wore these for a long night of beach volleyball. I never had to adjust them or hike them up. Sand brushed right off. They chinch just below the knee so you can have them snug or loose depending on personal style.
If you have any questions on sizing, give me a ring!

OMG

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: small

I love these pants so so so comfy. The waistband is so soft. Very flattering fit.

Great pants!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: xs

I have worn these to the climbing gym a couple of times and on one hike, and they were great for both. Very comfortable, and I like that you can cinch the hem. Roomy pockets. Will probably buy a second pair n a different color!

Flattering, versatile in form & function

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Size Bought: XL

Gym, hiking, around the house, en route to the river, sleeping, also great ON the river if it's cooler out, to the grocery store, reading in the hammock, and if I was into yoga I would use them for that, too.

The waist band is phenomenally flattering, the overall fit works great for someone like me who is pear shaped w/ thunder thighs. The fabric is light and breathable without feeling cheap or being clingy. I love the bit of stretch in the fabric, it makes them extra comfortable. I also love the pockets so you can toss a key or card in there if you're running to the store. And its great to have the option to cinch the bottom hem, or leave it open/wide. (I look like a sausage if I leave it cinched, so I was glad to find I could leave them open). Another point of versatility.

I like them so much I am considering a second pair!

Update: I bought the second pair! I have worn them so much that the fabric on the inner thigh is starting to pill. That part is kind of a bummer, but I still love the fit and fabric so much. So comfortable and versatile overall, and so hard for me to find a good fitting bottom.

Another thing to note, the "Mountain" color looks like a grey/blue here, but it is really a light dusty blue. And the "stone green" looks pretty close to reality, but I'd say is a touch lighter or less saturated in color in real life.

What size pants do you wear normally? I'm a 10-12 and am just trying to get a size. I am also a pear with thunder thighs *proud*

I am a 14-16 depending on brand. Current measurements are 33-ish natural waist and 43-ish hips. I lost a few lbs since that last review, but I also ordered a third pair, still in an XL. They are starting to feel a bit loose, though, so I am considering trying a L, though according to the chart I am just an inch narrower than the XL. Also of note, the fabric on the new pair (I got the grey ones) seems to be just a touch heavier than my original two pairs, which I think is for the best.
