Favorite pants ever
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 8
Seriously hope these are never discontinued. I was super excited when these came out, since I was a huge fan of the Meme pants which I've put through hell for years, but wanted something more stylish that could transition from work to trail. These totally hit the mark. I wear them to work (frequent kneeling on concrete, no holes/wear in the knees), travel, commuter biking, and long day hikes. Super lightweight, don't snag, don't stain. They are cute and plenty stretchy, although not enough for scrambling. I'm between sizes (always, it seems). If you're in the same boat, size up for a more practical (but still flattering) fit on the trail, but plan on having to wear a belt. Size down for a true skinny-jean fit with less movement. Be aware that like all Prana pants, they are slightly loose in the waist. For some reason my black pair starting pilling quickly, while the rest are fine as are my very old Memes. I'm 5'6" and the regular length is a little long and I have to cuff them, while the shorts are about a 7/8 length hitting above the ankle. I agree with another review that some colors are way off in sizing, while others are right on the mark. I have black, smoky blue, and ashy and they fit true to size like other Prana pants. Coal, thistle and moonrock all fit totally differently (and not like the Meme pants in the same colors). Total shame, and hopefully manufacturing has been solved since I ordered in 2019.
