wishing they hadn't changed

I'm definitely a fan of prAna in general and the zion pants in particular. I just wish they used the same material and sizing for these that they used two seasons ago. This is my fourth pair so I guess I really do like these. New material is a bit more clingy in cold dry air and the fit is roomer. The upside is they improved the tension system for the built-in belt that now makes tighting one handed possible. I wear these for climbing (3-season) and as casual pants everywhere I can.
