Great Stylish Capri that takes a beating
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I need my gear to cross over. I can't have JUST climbing gear, I want it to be comfy enough to go to yoga, and stylish enough so that I can romp around the city in it. The Prana Nemesis Knicker (read Capri/Manpri) fits the bill perfectly.
On my 6'3 frame the knicker hits about 2 inches below the knee. The fabric feels tough and has held up in the climbing gym and is stretchy enough to make it into rotation at yoga.
Want a cool, comfy, tough stylish go anywhere garment, order the Nemesis today. DO IT!!
great pants for everyday. i highly recommended it. the size fits well to it description.
Hike, Climb, Lounge...prAna Nemesis
prAna makes a dang good active pant. These feel like their Zion Stretch pants, but in "Manicker" form. Now I just need to work up the courage to wear them around town. No complaints, just awesome durable and comfortable manpris. Own them.
Tough and Stretchy
These fit me in a Medium very well at 6' 170lb. They fit about 2.5" below the knee. Will report later as to how these wear over time.
very stretchy pants I'm getting another pair :)
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I was looking for pants or shorts for a DWS trip to Mallorca this summer when I stumbled on these. I have several pairs of prAna pants and love the fit and feel of them. These lived up to the brands quality and fit. Plus they stood up to hard climbing over 4 days on sweet ocean cliffs. I would be completely dry within about 20 min of getting out of the water and in the humid climate off the coast of Spain, these kept me dry while hitchiking and wandering the island. I would recommend these to anyone not afraid of going full Euro style...lol. They definitely fall between the knees and ankles but I dig the fit. Plus they looked good as new after I washed the saltwater out of them when I returned, no discoloration at all.
Way too long
- Gender: Male
I bought these for my husband since he's 6'4" and every pair of shorts is too short on him. But these are too long, like man capris. Manpris.
These Knickers would be perfect if they came in at about 2 inches longer then the knee, in my case they were about 2 inches above my ankle, I am 5'10". I love the fit and feel of prAna but the length of these were a deal breaker for me and I sent them back. I gave them three stars cause I really like the feel and how they fit and some people may like where these ride. I will be getting another pair of Zion's and just rolling the cuff just below the knee.
In my mind, the charictaristics of exceptional climbing pants are: freedom of motion, abrasion resistance (duability), and lighweightness. And as far as I can tell, these capris were intended by Prana to excell as a climbing oriented peice of clothing. I've owned these pants for many months, and though out their life time, they've seen several bouldering setions at the gym, a two week trip in Squamish, and many casual days of wear. I rank these pants very high among my climbing clothes, an use them very often. Its because they live up to my three golden expectations. They are very strechy in fabric and articulated in construction. A built in, sinch style belt makes shure they sit high on your waist, and a gusseted croch promotes freedom of movement, as well as flexibility during high steps and any other rediculous positions you might find yourself in on the wall. A durable nylon and spandex blend (97/3) helps protect your legs in the middle of knee bars, as well as any other types of contact with the unforgiving surface of which your ascending. And un-suprisingly these nickers also come in at a low weight becasue of their lack of length on your lower leg. Once you throw in the water resistant surface, and the five mesh pockets, these pants are a truly remarkable addition to your climbing wardrobe. I highly recomend them to any outdoor-er looking for an excellent pair of pants. I love my Nemisis Nickers, and I KNOW you will too.
Two Minor Problems
Love these capris. Face it that's what they are. They breathe well, they repel water better than some not as good as others but the fabric is light enoughto dry quick anyway so that's not a problem and they are light and don't hinder movement. I have only used them about town and on a few summits so I have not tested the durability yet.
My only gripes:
First, and this is for ANY pant, I don't mind the integral belts but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, start giving me belt loops so I have a choice. I am not a fan of how the integral only cinches from one side and also at some point that plastic buckle may fail. Then what? Like I said I have this gripe from these knickers all the way up to some of my pricey Arc'Teryx Gear.
Secondly, Give me a couple more colors LOL. I have charcoal and Khaki, so my only other option is green. Bummer.
These are durable and comfortable, great for climbing. They're a bit long for shorts, but I guess that's what you'd expect for knickers.
Great Climbing Bottom
I bought these for my boyfriend to climb in and he wears them all the time. They have good stretch, are light weight and are constructed of breathable fabric.
I bought the charcoal color, liked them so much, went ahead and got the green ones too. Comfy, stylish, breathable. No complaints.
Awesome capris, they're not loose fitting, so they look a little weird with certain baggy shirts etc. I love them though, I'd definitely recommend them.
Protects your knees!!
I bought these pants based on the previous write ups about protecting their knees! They are incredible...very light weight and dry fast. I bought the mediums with the idea that they ran a little big and they do, but it was a perfect fit for me (33-34 in waist). I recommend these pants!!
Great For Bouldering
Some of the most comfortable pants i have ever owned. they are durable, stretchy, and breathable. Perfect for climbing and bouldering.
Great for climbing, imperfect fit
Cargo green size medium seems a little big. I usually wear a 31 waist. I wish I had order small, but maybe they would have been too small~ Great climbing pants though! Fit should be slimmed down for better customer satisfaction.
