Look Nice But Hate The Material

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

These pants are really cute and flattering, but I hate the material. Any piece of lint or hair you come across during the day sticks to it like a magnet! I could not get the material clean after several washes, I only wore them once!

Softer Than Expected

I bought these for my wife, so this comes from her. First off, they are fairly true to size, but they are made to be slim-fit, so expect them to be close fitting. The good part of this is that they are very flexible, allowing easy movement and are exceptionally soft, and so they are also comfortable. This makes them very useful for wearing to work or even on a light day-hike. Highly recommended!

Favorite Jeans!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 2

I absolutely love these jeans so much I bought 2 pairs. They are super stretchy and comfy, but still hold their shape really well. Both green and black colors look awesome. They are on the long side but look great cuffed at the bottom so it works out well.

Adventure Ladies! If you are looking for a do-it-all, feel good, look good pair of pants; look no further! These are my third pair of Kara jeans, and I LOVE them. They are jeans I actually look forward to wearing because the material and stretch in the jean make them comfortable and easy. I will say that each color fits a little different due to stretch. The indigo fit really standard, although the dark grey ones ran big and my green ones run a little tighter. I still love them all, but when I climb in them I'll tend towards my stretchier pair. I have used them for climbing, hiking, beer drinking, couch lounging, and just living life! I'd highly recommend. I'm 5'7" and 140# and wear a size 4 with a belt for added security.

Too Long

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

I really wanted to love these after hearing ht big hype about them, but they were extremely long on me. The color was a little off too- I got the dark mud and it was more green than I was expecting. The fit otherwise was spot on, but they were too long for me to wear comfortably.

Kara Jean my favorite!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 8

Really love the Kara jean fit but this particular pant is running large. The sizing of the Kara jean depends on the batch or fabric used so it is a bit inconsistent
Didn't feel like returning it because I would have to pay return shipping so I will just use a belt

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.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

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
  • Fit: True to size

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.

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.

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 2

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.
