Bronson Pant

The prAna Bronson has rivet reinforcements and added stretch so it's durable enough to handle all kinds of crazy stuff like vaulting over fences in pursuit of bad guys and sliding across car hoods as you sprint through busy intersections. Or maybe it's just durable enough to handle kicking back with a cold one after you finally send that stupid-hard bouldering problem.

  • A touch of spandex adds flexibility for kicking your feet up
  • Standard fit works well for post-climb chilling
  • Gusseted crotch gives your legs room to move

Can't Go Wrong

    These are great pants from a great company. The fit is a little on the slim side as far as the waist goes, but fits true to size as a regular fit overall. The light stretch give a comfortable feel and fit. The material feels tough and durable, and I know I will have these for years to come.

    Stylish and Rugged

    I'm a true 31x34 and very few companies makes this size which is what drew me to try Prana. I absolutely love these pants. The material is thick enough I can do trail work without worrying about thorn bushes or wading around in the thick. This does lend to a material that can be wrinkled out of the dryer but if hung up warm, they look straight and fresh when it comes time to put them on. Lots of bad comments on the leg cuffs but I actually like them. These are the only pants I have that don't get hung up on the pull loop or lace hooks when I stand up and stay low like they should. Huge fan of these, I'll be getting a couple more pair in different colors.

    Great Everyday Pant

    These pants quickly became my go to pant for everyday activity. Just stretchy enough, and super durable fabric. Not to tight, not to baggy. The burnt camel color looks super rad as well.

    I wear these pants everyday

    It’s not weird though because I have them in black, green, khaki, and mud. The mud is my favorite because it reminds me of a Carhartt work pants, but I don’t work hard enough to justify Carhartt and I definitely don’t need a hammer loop. These are super durable and great for climbing yet flexible enough to do yoga in, which I have many times. Prana killed it again. 5 star pants!

    Thats a nice pair of pants

    Just ordered my first pair of these hoping to find a comfortable, durable, somewhat stylish look, although the first two are more important. Im 5'11, 180lbs, but my legs are pretty bulky. It's always hard finding a good pair of pants that fit right in the thighs without getting a pair of husky pants. These are pretty dang nice without trying on beforehand I was skeptical but they were on sale so I figured why not. Great length, great fit at the waist and in the legs. I know some people said they could be slightly more tapered in the calves, yeah maybe, but I could care less. Comfort wins.

    Love me some Prana

    Purchased Bronson pants in acacia brown. I have also purchased Bronson pants in the color mud previously.
    Both are true in waist and length.
    These pants can be worn on the trail or out on a Saturday night. Love these pants!!
    I also own stretch Zion pants and shorts and Bronson shorts. You can’t go wrong with Prana.

    Thank you for the review, Mike!!

    Nice pants

    This is one of those rare instances where the pants fit me perfect without tailoring. I was looking for a red pair and this one had the right hue. I have washed several times without any bleeding or discoloration. The material is comfortable but rugged. It is quickly becoming my favorite pant for traveling.

    It's hard to find pants in 28x32, so these already had a leg up before they arrived. I've worn them through several washes now, and they fit perfectly, the color hasn't bled, they're very breathable, I love the gusset crotch. This is one of the rare products I have no criticism of. I'm a fan now.

    Perfect Cut

    Loves these pants. Perfect cut. Just the right amount of stretch.

    Excellent cool weather climbing pant

    • Size Bought: 32x34

    Go to fall pants for climbing. Length and sizing are great, especially for a tall individual. Material is tough, washes well, and the cuff around the legs works well for folding up when climbing. Belt loops are good too. Survived a whole season of climbing with no signs of wear.

    Bell cuffs?

      I had to return the pants. I like everything else about these pants but the cuffs are comically large - I wear engineer's boots and wear a lot of boot cut pants. The cuffs are beyond a boot cut. I read some reviews about the pant being baggy but the cuffs make my boots look tiny!

      Prana did not disappoint

      I've had my eye on these pants a little while. Picked up the shorts last summer and loved those. Just got a pair of the pants and I can't stop wearing them. Classic Prana quality and fit. They look a little nicer than jeans and are more comfortable. Durable material seems to hold up very well to abrasion. As with most most of Prana's pants they offer exceptional range of motion and are comfy to climb in.

      Great Pants

      I love the way that these pants fit, not to tight anywhere but not so loose you feel like you are wearing parachute pants. i simply love them and have not had any issues with the inconsistent sizing.

      First prana item that disappointed...

      I'm a huge fan of Prana, have tons of their stuff, even have another pair of the Bronson's in cargo green, but these pants disappointed. Either something changed from previous years, or because of the khaki color, but these pants stay wrinkled beyond belief and feel like cardboard. I know the Bronson is supposed to be a rugged work pant, but these stay so wrinkled that you can barely wear them. My wife cringes when she sees me try to wear them. Still a prana fan, but def don't recommend the Bronson in khaki.

      Men's Pants Fit Me Best!

      I LOOOOOOVE prAna, and when I got tired of suffering over the women's sizes I turned to the men's side! They are a little loose on the waist, but that is to be expected because they form to a boxy man shape. Love the stretch. Perfect for climbing (:

      So close to perfect

      I normally wear a 36 in the waist so that's the size I ordered these Bronson pants in. I'd say they are 36-ish... just a tiny bit snug after washing. The length is dead on -> 34 inches. They have a comfortable cut. The material is thicker normal pants, but not appreciably stiffer... just a bit. I'm living in Lubbock right now and the wind blows most of the time. The wind doesn't cut through this material so no need for a base layer... the pants breath great. WHY NOT A PERFECT %?! The bottoms are so open... not bell-bottom open, but at least boot-cut open (maybe more?) at the bottom. On the other hand, they match up with my Danner boots perfectly... I just don't wear mountain boots to class.

      Nice Non-Jean Alternative

      I'm about 6ft tall and 207 lbs currently with medium sized legs and a 34-35 inch waist. Got these as an all purpose casual cargo-type pant. The waist is true, the butt and thighs are snug, but the stretch makes them really comfortable. Below the knee they are loose and large. I probably could have went with the 32" length, but they seem to work just fine being a little long. Comfortable and can probably be used for active stuff (a lot of cotton though) or to hang out, or go out to dinner. I always figure if something is too big, I can just cook it in the dryer... but these don't seem to shrink much so far. Still, I like them.

      Solid Pants

      These are some of my favorite pants--they look great, fit well, and feel durable. The only downside is that they are pretty heavy and can be kind of restricting.

      These Prana pants are super comfortable and very flexible. They look like casual pants and can be worn about anywhere. Easy to work in and then hit the local watering hole.

      This is a great pant, it's constructed in a very intelligent way to provide more mobility in the thigh region whilst not sacrificing style. In this way it's a form fitting and stylish pant yet breathable and comfortable. I'm planning on buying more of this and other prana pants in the future.
