After it was introduced to the outdoor community, the popularity of the Men's Piero Pant spread like wildfire. Mountain Hardwear has since updated the style to bring this pant in a little closer to the body for a cleaner fit, but don't worry, you won't sacrifice any mobility when you're scrambling over rocks or 'packing the Long Trail.

Great pants with small sizing

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs small
  • Size Bought: 32x32

I love these pants for working around the house or a casual outing. They are comfortable, rugged and don't look too technical.

Great climbing pant

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

These are great for cooler weather climbing. Probably a bit too thick / heavy duty for warm weather climbing. Very durable to abrasion, and they fit great.

Weird rivets but awesome pants.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs small
  • Size Bought: 30x32

Trifecta ! Light, strong and inexpensive. Wore my first pair in the BWCA for a week. Came back, bought two more. Mobility and durability are great. And with the pokey rivets I get to "inadvertently" mess up my mother-in-laws antique dining room chairs.

Comfy and Sturdy

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs large
  • Size Bought: 30x32

These are some of the comfiest pants that I have owned, and they have the added bonus of having nicer a looking fit and texture than your average pair of hiking pants. These pants are also quite tough. I liked the pants so much that I ended up buying a second pair while they were on sale. They do tend to run fairly large and I would not recommend them for hot weather.

Pants are still pretty good....

    When Mountain Hardware sold to Columbia, they changed the design....not for the better. The belt loops are inferior, the side pocket is inferior, and they removed the cargo strap from the leg. Come on Columbia, you can't go cheap! Charge more if you need to make more, people will pay for quality. Don't screw up a previously great design!

    Awesome Field Pants

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs large

    I am a field biologist and need pants that can keep up. I have two pairs of these pants and love them. They are breathable and dry quickly. I have gotten them tangled in barbed-wire and cactus and all sorts of thorns and they are still going strong. I love the stretchiness of the fabric for when I have to squat down or scramble up a hill. The side zip pocket works well for keys or anything that needs to be kept safe.

    Great rock climbing pants!

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

    Abrasion resistant, elastic and comfortable. I've tried both indoor gym routes and granites of the central Andes in Chile and have responded perfectly without any sign of wastage. Ideal for cold days. The pocket on the right leg allows access even with the harness, allowing hand out an smart phone or anything like that. (not recommended for hot days)

    Beware the fit!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: 28" x 30"

    I got the Piero Pant because for a couple of reasons: 1) to check the fit and comfort and 2) to compare it to prAna's Stretch Zion Pant. I am already a fan of the latter but am looking to diversify my climbing/hiking pants collection.

    I had tried on the Piero at the Mountain Hardwear retail stores and pretty much knew they would run big because the size 30 they have there (they don't care 28-in waist in the stores) were HUGE and I often try on 30s as my own waist is 29-in. I got the Piero in 28" x 30" and indeed they run big. It's a bit too roomy but acceptable.

    The fit is also quite relaxed: very roomy, boot-cut legs. The rise is actually a little too high for my taste and I do prefer a slimmer cut. I mean, why have such awesome grommets and overall good style but not have a more contemporary fit? Plus cutting out some of that extra fabric will help these pants be a tad lighter.

    The water repellant-aspect of the fabric is great. I live in Seattle and wearing them today, the light rain was beading off my pants. Today was also particularly windy and cold and these pants kept my legs warm and were quit wind resistant too. More bonus points.

    The construction seems very secure with all the double-stitching. The angled side pocket on the right leg is perfect for my phone and wallet. And soft and warm deep front pockets are also a welcomed feature.

    Overall, they are a good pant that I think will be quite durable on the trail and a good pant to have rainy/misty Seattle, but on climbs, the Piero's bulkier fit makes it less preferable to the Stretch Zion Pants. Never the less, I would consider getting these pants in a couple of other colors, but hopefully Mountain Hardwear will correct the fitting sooner rather than later.

    Awesome pants. Thoroughly over sized.

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: 30x32

    Really nice weight, about that of a good pair of jeans. Great features, fuzzy pockets, good placement, etc. Well thought out cut and everything. I really wish I could fit them. I have never in my life fit into a size 30 without a great deal of muscle and wishful thinking. I ordered the 30x32 seeing reviews saying they run large. They were so large, a phone, wallet, and keys in my pockets were enough to pull them off just walking around the house. Going to try the 28x32 (it's cool that's even an option) but note that I am a 31" or 32" waisted guy going down to a 28.

    Great all around pant

      These were gifted. The recipient loves the comfort of these pants and that they are able to be worn to the office and while climbing. They fit perfectly and he says they feel like they will last a long time. He thinks they run true to size.

      Sizing Issues

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times
      • Fit:Runs large

      I purchased a pair each of Piero and Yumalino pants size 32 inches with is my normal sizing. Both were 34 inches in the waist and fall off me without a belt. Subsequently, I tried on a pair of Pieros with a 30 inch waist which fit fine at my waist but were too small in the thighs and backside. I plan to try a 31 inch waist next but if that doesn't work I will have to find another line of pants that does fit. So sad as I really like Mountain Hardware. My first pair (Mesas) fit well and wore like steel and these show every promise of similar performance.

      Greatest Pants Ever!

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

      The Piero pant runs a little long in the length and the waist, but the cut is very clever. Very comfortable with nice features; fuzzy front pockets (micro fibre) as well as a tech pocket. My wife cannot keep her hands out of my pockets. Durable enough to hike in the bush and nice enough to wear to a casual meeting. The Piero are great for a fall walk, I will be purchasing another pair.

      So sick!

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

      I work in these pants so I need them to be light, durable, comfortable and functional. They accomplish all of this without looking like a pair of nylon pants. Awesome side zipper pocket for your phone or what not. Slight longer than I was expecting but it still work in anything but sandals. I'm 5'9 and I bought the 34x32's. Awesome pants!

      Most Durable Nylon pant out there

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit:Runs large

      The Piero's are outstanding pants if you're a trad climber or avid hiker that demands durability. My other favorite in this category of pants is the Prana Zion but these are better. The stretch and comfort is insane and has a sweet zippered thigh pocket that is perfect size for your phone. I own two pairs in Grey and Brown and looking to add a third in black before they get discontinued or something. They fit a little baggy which I prefer but the newer models are a bit closer fitting.

      Doesn't get any better!

        I bought 2 pairs of these in 2010. After 2 years of daily use on farms, the only thing that cut the fabric was when I got myself in the knee with a bill hook!



        They dry really fast, have just the right amount of pockets, and are thin enough to be comfortable in fairly warm weather. Sadly, I'm going to have to retire these for the summer in Thailand, but I'm hoping that the Mesa pant can more or less replace them....Time will tell!
