So So Good, The Best

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought a pair of these pants finally cause I've read so many good things about them. After I got them I wore them climbing a couple times and loved them so much I bought the women's version for my wife, another color for myself and a pair for my dad. I don't know how they're gonna hold up over time, but they seem sturdy and they're super super comfortable. They've become my new wear-for-everything pants.

Really great pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second pair of stretch Zion pants. I also have a pair of the shorts too. I really like the way they fit which is very comfortable. Stretch is really good. Love the cinch up internal belt. I mainly wear these climbing at the gym or outside at the cliffs. Works great for both and mine have been durable. DWR fabric drys quickly. These pants look nice and I wear them out on the town as well.

Fantastic Pant

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Have only worn these a couple times but they are excellent. Great freedom of motion for a variety of outdoor activities. I have the same style in the shorts and loved them so much I had to get the pants too!

Solid Pant!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love these pants. I have owned several pair as well as getting a few pairs for my dad and they are always my go to pant for just about any occasion. They fit true to size and are a super comfortable pant from climbing to hiking to simply just hanging out. Definitely suggest!

Treat yo self

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These pants are great. I've had multiple pairs and still wear the first pair I picked up two years ago. They are really durable, i've dragged them through sandstone chimneys, along granite slabs, bush whacking, dumped wine and coffee on them and they still are going strong. Super comfortable, stretchy, and breathable. Can't go wrong with these. I love the built in belt, keep those pants tight with out bugging you in a harness. BUY THEM!

Love them overall

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 33x32

I have a 33x32.
Use: Indoor climbing (so far) and everday use.
Use: Everyday wear. I've used the shorts while climbing, but not these.
Awesome material, stretchy but durable feeling.
Love the built in belt so I don't have to feel another belt under a harness.
Super comfy...I feel like I'm wearing pjs all day.
Very minor pilling after climbing indoors after 1 session. So far I think they'll hold up, but I'll keep an eye out.
Took me a few tries to find the size that I wanted. My normal 32 length felt too long, but the 30's ended up being too short. They feel slightly baggy in the lower leg at first, but the more I wear them, the more I like them.

Awesome review. Thanks so much for contributing to our community, Devin.

Very happy!

    Just got these in the mail. Wanted to try them before deciding if I would take advantage of the amazing sale price going on. They fit so well and the finish and quality is so good, I ordered a second pair immediately after trying these on. Definitely give Kuhl a run for their money on the competition. Time will speak for the durability, but inspecting the garment, I have no doubts they will hold up for a long time.

    This is my second pair of Stretch Zion pant in charcoal. Just like the first pair it is all I hoped for. Great product.

    Basically perfect

    • Size Bought: 34/34

    I have five pair across two generations. I have most definitely put them through the ringer. I ended up with that many because of the versatility and comforts. They get a five star review for longevity. They take little space if needed, they are comfortable as anything I've ever worn. The roll up leg is actually handy on warmer days. They look good... form and function to the max. My favorite pants. I wear em when it's my time, or at work. They are comfortable to ride a bike in. Reasonably quick dry. Not too thin, not too thick, durable. The new gen with waist and length sizing is extra nice. I recommend these to anyone.

    Favorite pants ever

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30x30

    These are by far the best pair of pants I own. They're stretchy enough for climbing, durable enough for long hikes, and comfortable enough for wearing around the house on a lazy day. Gonna buy another pair soon. 10/10 Highly recommend.

    You will love these pants

    • Size Bought: large or 36/32

    I have 4 pairs of these zion pants. They are the quintessential active pants. They dry fast and if there was one pair of pants allowed on a trip, I would take these. They are like the Marmot driclime windshirt: don't leave home without them.

    One word for these pants: WOW!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: 33 waist

    Climbing pants have really come a long way since I started, when we usually bought ourselves a sturdy and loose pair of canvas carpenter's pants. I have heard all sorts of wonderful things about these pants, and based upon responses alone, I figured they were worth a try, even with the hefty price tag. All I can say is that they totally live up to the hype, and they're absolutely everything people say they are. They're super stretchy, but not in a loose way...they fit snugly, but give you total range of motion. I love these pants so much I'm already budgeting to buy several more pairs, because I find myself wearing them daily for work and other activities, too. All-around awesome product. If you've been hesitating because of the price, just stop and buy them. They're my new favorite pants, and I'm even wearing them right now at work, sitting in an office.

    Nice pants, vanity sized

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 31x32

    Ordered these and have used them for climbing indoors and out, and for hikes where long pants are appropriate. I think I generally like them. Durable, allow nice range of motion, but I have been frustrated with the sizing. I wear 31 waist for most pants, and these are clearly too big at that size. You'd think a company tag at markets to climbers and yoga practitioners would be true to size!

    The Hype is Real

    Heard so much about how these were the greatest climbing pants of all time from friends and online reviews. Guess what? They were right. Stylish, durable, well designed, stretchy, comfortable. The list goes on and on. Stop looking for a reason to buy them and just do it already, you won't have any regrets.

    The Hype is Real


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

    My dad needed new pants, and I knew I couldn't go wrong with these. He loves them and says they fit true to size and the fabric is very comfortable. He wears them to the office as well as hiking and going out to dinner. Said he loves how versatile they are.

    So Good!

      Bought this for a friend for his trip.

        Super comfortable, move well and they stay cool in the heat. What more can I say?

        Just so comfortable

        • Size Bought: 33

        I wore these at camp for five nights on a canoe trip in Quetico Park to keep the mosquitos off. First of all they breath very well, it was quite humid there and i thought i was going to heat up just to stay away from those tiny blood thirsty monsters. Nope I was perfectly comfortable, fast forward to now and I'm sitting on the couch wearing my Zions writing this review. I've also been wearing the same pair to work (construction) and all of my clothes take a beating and these have yet to get a hole in them. I will be buying a few more pairs for the fall.

        The best pant's I've owned

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: 33x32

        I've owned a pair in dark khaki for a while now and they are honest to God the best pair of pants that I have tried on. Almost indestructible. I've hiked with it on trips to Kilimanjaro, Half Dome in Yosemite and many other places and they are still functional with no tears. I can't say enough about the comfort level too as they are my go to on any flight. (My passport fit perfectly in the cargo pocket) Get yourself a pair and you won't regret it.

        Not just for men!

        • Size Bought: 30/32

        After stealing my boyfriends routinely, I finally sucked it up and bought a few of my own. I usually wear a 5/6 or a little smaller in bottoms and the 30/32 are flawless. It suuuucks that women's gear never has functional pockets, which is initially why I wanted these. Good deep front and back pockets, a ZIPPING side leg cargo (but low key and not tacky, + the zipper is covered discreetly)....and a built in cinch belt. Absolutely no regrets and next splurge is likely going to be in more colors. Climbing, yoga, work pants, and actually kinda cute just running errands if you have a more fitted top on, ladies. If you're reading this, you need these pants.
