Crack-smokin' climbers

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

For the ladies who wrote they'd use these capris to climb in, I'd like to make the suggestion they put down their crack pipes, and go climb some cracks instead! I purchased these specifically for climbing, and there's a snowball's chance in hades that they'd last more than an hour on the crag. The fit was nice in the waist, etc. , but they didn't cover my knees, and all the frou-frou buttons and ties etc, would just get caught on rock features and torn off or whatever. The material was way too thin to last more than one climbing trip. These knickerbockers are best for around town only.

I dunno - maybe those others posts were just about climbing in gyms?

sad to return these adorable pants!

    i loved these pants immediately. the opal color is a really pretty light grey, the fabric is soft and comfy, yet structured. they also fit perfectly in the waist and rear, which is hard to find. (i ordered a 4 and i'm 5'9", 125 lbs). they would have been the pants i've been looking for, except for the length. these were bermuda shorts on me.... they didn't cover the knee at all. i wish Prana made these exact same pants in a capri length!

    Another perfect, versatile pair of pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have these in Espresso, size 6 (I am 5'6", 135), and they are super comfy. I have a tendency to rate clothing on a scale from 'Zero' to 'Can I climb in it?', and these max out the scale pretty well. The attention to feminine and functional detail is something that prAna does better than many of their competitors, and these knickers are no different. They come out of the wash like new, look great running errands or being casual at work, and are the perfect weight for heading up the canyon on the way home. Love these!

    Great For Petites

      Bought all 4 colors since I am petite they fall just below the knee and the rise is perfect, Very comfortable. Easy care, and I don't dry them in the dryer just fluff on air and I hang them on my drying rack. I recommend them to anyone who has a short torso and with the draw string adjusting is easy.

      Perfect fit!

        I am SO happy about the fit of these shorts! It is rare that I find a pair of prAna shorts/pants in a size 0, usually I only see them go down to a size 2. I have decided that I cannot wear prAna pants because they do not make them long enough. If I get a size 2, they are WAY too wide in the hips but still to short in length. But when getting a short/capri I don't have the length problem anymore and because these shorts came in a 0 AND they have a drawcord waist, I can make them fit my hips perfectly! It's a wonderful feeling when clothes truly fit :)

        I was also pleasantly surprised with the color. I got these in the zinc color and it ended up being darker than the picture, which I like because then they won't look dirty too quickly. And the mesh pockets? Icing on the cake!

        Perfect fit!


          I returned mine, the color (chocolate) was a little green looking, and I did not like the draw-strings hanging everywhere. The main problem, though was the fabric- it was just too heavy for my super-hot climate. (It seems like Columbia is making the lightest-weight clothes out there right now.) I am petite and these pants did fit well, hit just below the knee.

          So Comfy!!!

            These pants are great... I ended up buying these in a size bigger than normal hoping that they wouldnt be too big and I could have plenty of room to move...Big mistake...they are huge! But still good enough for a light hike, run, or grocery store run! These are SUPER comfortable and are very flattering for my figure. I love the dangeling cords and the drawstring close! If they had them in more colors, I would buy them all!!

            too cute

              Loved it so much I bought two. Finally a cute pair of womens' capris with large cargo pockets! Front pockets are deep with mesh interiors. Tie waist is indeed low-rise. I'm 5'4" and the capri length just covers my knee caps, maybe a bit lower when the waist is tied looser. Have a 39" hip and the size 8 fits very well. Fabric is light weight but sturdy. Buttons are flat so I can sleep in these without the buttons jamming into me. Aegean color is more blue-green than shown in the photo -- it's a beautiful rich color. Stone color is a light khaki that goes with just about anything.
