Amazing!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I love these pants! Zion stretch for life! i own probably 4 of these pants, ive used them for travelling, camping, hiking, climbing, canyoneering you name it. Ive used them in the winter/snow, and in the summer, these pants fare well year round! Durable, tough but very comfortable, breathable, wicks moisture well and even dry really quick. they have just the right amount of stretch so they dont restrict me when i climb or im down the the depths of a canyon. i love these pants! Highly recommend!

Tough and Comfortable

I ordered pairs of these pants for my son and me for a climbing trip in Custer State Park in South Dakota. We wore them in driving rain in the Badlands and on the Black Elk Peak trail, and for three full days of climbing abrasive rock in the sun. They showed little dirt and no wear and were super comfortable. I am a Prana convert!

Great pants!

These pants fit to size. The fabric is comfortable, stretchy and light weight. I recommend these pants.

Sweet pants!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34x32

I should have bought these a long time ago. Good time to buy with the sale going on, don't miss out!!

I would compare theses to Kuhl renegades, but with a tougher feeling material without the added weight. I do miss my cell phone pocket though.

The fit is spot on for me, not baggy but not skinny jeans either. I did go with a 34 and usually wear 33. The built in belt gives options as far as comfort. I do have my CCW permit and Appendix carry a G19 with a Vanguard holster, the built in buckle is right where it clips, so I have to move it over a tad. My Shield 9mm at 4:00 IWB disappears. I like the option of using my CCW belt or not, as I do not always carry.

I'm really thinking about donating all my jeans: Levi's, Cinch, Carhartt...these are good, but nowhere near the comfort.

I also have the Zion shorts in 10", will go 12" next time.

Slim Fit?

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 31x32

I have average sized thighs and these were too tight. I really wanted to like these but if you like some room in the thigh, you might want to look somewhere else. The waist was true to size; I guess I could order up and use a belt, but I'd rather not make such a compromise.

Very comfortable and durable pants for everything

These are great!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Size Bought: 30/30

Absolutely amazing, so comfortable, fit great. Bottom buttons I think are unnecessary as when you roll them up they stay on their own anyways

Comfy pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 32x32

These are truly a standard fit to slim cut in the waist. If you prefer a relaxed fit pant, go up a size and you will be fine. The material is great and help provide great freedom of movement.

Fantastic Pants But They Run Long

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 34x32

These are my absolute favorite pants for climbing and hiking in hot weather, or just lounging around home. The fabric is stretchy and comfortable, which makes the pants perfect for bouldering. The only downside to these is that they run very long relative to the other brands of pants I have, but these are my first pair of Prana pants so that might just be a brand thing. Overall I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great pair of active pants.

Brings hope to an otherwise bleak world.

Perfect amount of stretch, lovely fit, and they breathe well. My wife tell me I look super-dandy and the water-resistance is awesome for when my son, standing next to me at the urinal bank, mis-aims and hits my leg.

Best Climbing Pant!

I love the Stretch Zion Pants! It is one of the top picks around the Backcountry office. They are super stretchy, durable, comfortable, and look awesome!

97% Nylon, 3% spandex makes them very durable, and breathable. With a DWR finish for great water resistance and additional durability.

It is a great go-to pant for Hiking, Climbing, Travel, and pretty much anything you want to throw at it. As many of us say it's a great "trail-to-cocktail" pant.

They are a little on the longer side so depending on how long you like your pants. I'm 6 feet and 170 pounds, my general measurements are 32 x 32. I bought these in a 33 waist, 32 inseam. I like them a little more on the comfortable side but can still be snugged down with the built-in waist belt.

Your standard pocket layout, two in the front, two in the rear. Flaps over the rear pockets for added security closer, and one thigh pocket for stashing away personal items while in a harness.

You can roll up the legs with a built in snap closer if you just want to air out your legs, Articulated knee and crotch is great for movement when climbing, hiking, and overall movement.

I would highly recommend these pants!

First Test

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 33x36

I have only tried these on one time and have not used them in a performance setting....YET. My initial impressions are that these are extremely well made pants that have the perfect amount of stretch to the fabric, aren't too baggy, and aren't too constricting either. The fabric is heavy enough to settle down past the heel pull found on most of my hiking boots but is also light enough to dry quickly once wet. I absolutely love the adjustable built in nylon 'belt' and can envision using these for years and years. The only downside I see to these pants is that I don't believe the 36" inseam to be as long as they claim. I haven't taken a tape measure to them yet but they're about an inch too short for me. I am 6'6" and around 195 lbs. I am have a very lean, athletic build and have a very hard time finding performance pants that are long enough for me and that don't make me look like a goober while at crag or hiking through the Winds. My previous pants, a pair of Fjallravens, were definitely long enough. However, the fabric wasn't stretchy enough nor are they a heavy enough material to get past the heel pull loop on my 5.10 Guide shoes or any of my other hiking boots for that matter. Overall, I'd currently give this product a 4-star rating and would give it a 5-star rating and would purchase multiple pairs IF I thought the inseam fit as advertised.

Best Pants Hands Down

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 36x30

Picked up a pair of these last Fall and wore them on every single hiking and backpacking trip since them. The material is breathable and dries quickly which is a huge plus. Not willing to commit to the zip-offs it's nice to have the option to roll them up when it gets warm. Can't recommend these enough. Find your size and pick up a few different colors, you won't regret it.

Great lightweight pants

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

  • Size Bought: 32 x 32

These pants are lightweight and a bit stretchy. I'll be buying a few more of these.

Great Pants...If You're Not a Toothpick.

After having worn various other Prana products, I figured it was time to try out the pant that put them on the map. I'll say I understand the hype, but as with other Prana pants the fit is just too loose for my liking.

I like to wear my pants tight - even in a performance environment. Just because you're wearing them day in and day out on trail doesn't mean your clothes can't be flattering. For me, the fit just isn't right. That said, there's number of features I can appreciate with the Stretch Zions. The roll-up legs, gusseted and ventilated inseam and low profile thigh pocket are all standouts. I could love these were they to fit a bit slimmer.

Best pants ever

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This is one of the best pairs of pants ever! In addition to high quality, they fit great and are extremely comfortable. They are great in the outdoors, and for all of my everyday activities. After wearing them a few times, I promptly went and bought another pair. I highly recommend!
