Prana pants strike again!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Small (2)

My love for Prana pants is ever growing, and getting these pants has fueled my love even more. I find these great for around-the-town errands, work, and casual nights out. Not so great for climbing because they dont have much stretch. They come in many fun colors and these pants look very flattering on. These definitely run small though. I typically wear a XS (0) in the Halle style and I got these in a S(2) after reading the reviews and they are just the smallest bit too tight. Luckily, I think they will stretch out over time and fit like a charm.

I'm buying 8 more pairs.

Maybe not really that many, but these are fantastic - they fit JUST RIGHT and my boyfriend thinks my booty looks great in them but more importantly, they're the most comfortable pair of jeans I own!

LOVE THESE JEANS!

I ordered two colors, the green and mud, I love them both. The green is a beautiful dark forest, the mud is just that - midway between gray and brown, super practical, doesn't show dirt (hello dog paws) and goes with everything. I love the stretch and fit, they look good with everything.

Great fit, but colors much different

Love these pants but the colors are not represented well to the real color. The “dark mud” looks almost identical to a mossy/earthy dark green. The cargo green faded out fast despite washing cold water, light dry inside out, and they look way lighter than the picture. I attached a picture of the dark mud below

Great fit, but colors much different

Great pants for every day wear.

I truly enjoy these pants! I love the fit and the overall stretch with the pants. This is my first pair of Prana pants. I got the dark mud color to switch up my pants color and so happy I did. I will defiantly buy more Prana pants in the future!

She's got legs!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My wife is absolutely in love with prAna and can you really blame her? Personally I have my fair share of prAna pants and shirts as well and you can't go wrong with the quality and style. Sizing can vary from item to item, but typically they aren't off to far from each other.

She is 5'5" and 135 lbs with a 30" waist. She ordered an 8 so that she can wear them lower on her hips, but that in turn takes a 28" inseam and makes it even longer. Her only complaint, which really isn't a complaint, but more a piece of info to tell others is the inseam seems longer than 28" and she has to roll them up a couple of times to sit above the ankles.

Overall she loves these pants and has several pairs and would recommend them to everyone.

Fit Great

LOVE these pants! Totally true to size and are super comfortable for any activity. Movable, flexible and super cute! I get compliments on these every time I have them on and will soon have one (or two) of every color.

Odd sizing

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 4

Not sure what it is about the Kara but these pants do not fit me at all. I usually find Prana to run large and wear a 4 in other styles but these fit so small I could barely get them on. Returning for the Kayla which I've had really great success with. The dark mud is a nice color.

How long is the inseam for size 2? are they 35 in as well?

The inseam on this pant is 28in

What is the leg opening width?

Hey Jess, the cuff is 5 (12.7 cm)

Great all around pants!

I had been looking for pants that I could do everything in that weren't leggings. These are them! They look great worn casually and while doing active things! I just wore them scrambling in the flatirons and they were so comfortable both while hiking and scrambling! I don't want to take them off and I'm ready to buy another pair. I like this much more than the Meme pants (those had no give for me and were a pain to climb and hike in). The meme pants also sag on my waist. I'm 5'5'' and 130 pounds. Average athletic build. I go with a 2 now in Prana pants. These are the best fitting ones I have found.

BEST pants.

I absolutely LOVE this pants. They're the only pants/jeans I buy now since I discovered them a few years ago. The colors are great, they're super stretchy so I can wear them climbing but they still look nice enough to wear to work. After time they do stretch out a bit, but for me, it sort of creates a "relaxed" jean that I can still wear out wherever because they're still SO comfortable. My only criticism is that the inner right leg seam somehow always ends up on top of my shin, but that might just be my weird legs. Still love them!

Great At First, Stretched Out Over Time

I purchased these jeans about 7 months ago and at first, I was so excited to have them! They fit great, were super comfortable, and were perfect for all sorts of situations, from hiking to a day at work to a night out. Then after a few months, they started to stretch A LOT. They went from a nice skinny jean to a baggy jean with a slightly tapered leg. It didn't take many washings for this to happen. After only 5-6 months of wear, I've retired these jeans because they do not look good or feel good when I were them. I'm really disappointed, as these jeans are fairly costly and didn't last more than a few months.

Oddly Sized

It fits true to size, exceot for around the waist where it is super large. Will be returning these.

I have 3 pairs!

I have these pants in three different colors. I wear either the 0 or 00. These pants are great. For me - they start as an around town pant and then as I wear them to death I start climbing in them. They tend to run slightly loose on me and the material is nice and stretchy. I LOVE the volcanic plum color.

My favorite pants!

It is hard to find pants that fit in the leg and waist for an athletic build. The Prana Kara jeans are my solution! These pants are my favorite and I own them in several colors. The stretch is also nice and they allow easy movement and they always stay comfortable.

Love the stretch!

These jeans are a great staple piece to have in your closet. You can have many different colors to choose from and never go wrong! They offer great stretch so you can move around easily in them, and even wear them to work and hit the crag after to climb a few routes without changing.
I love that you can roll them up or wear them long, they are really a versatile, cute pant. They have a great fit in the thighs, I have a bit bigger thigh and they hug in all the right places, but give you that stretch as I mentioned so they aren't overly tight.
The only reason I gave 4 stars out of 5 is the rise on them & the fact that they seem to be very attracted to dog fur. I wasn't fond of the low rise waist, but that is honestly just a personal preference too. It just makes it hard to bend over and feel comfortable doing so unless I have a longer length top on!
Other than that low rise, the fit on these was perfect for me! I went with my usual size and they had the best feel on.

Great Jeans!

I was pleasantly surprised by these jeans- they are awesome. I got the denim color and love the wash. They have a lot of stretch in them, so they are super comfy. I am now thinking about getting another color!

Best Jeans Ever!

I love love love these jeans. I've had trouble finding good jeans for several years now and then happened upon these and think they're the best. They're really versatile. I've worn them hiking several times and to work as well. They are super comfy, like you're not even wearing a jean, but they still look nice.

GREAT fit!!!

I have a really hard time finding pants that fit my body shape. Typical pants are made so skinny in the legs with a wide waist. These pants fit incredibly well, not sucking tight on the thighs and butt, yet are made for the curves of a woman, and the waist fits well. Not too short like so many of the pants made nowadays. Great material. Wash and dry just fine.
