too thick for convertible

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

Fabric is little bit thick.
The fabric is suitable for original Stretch Zion, but it is not for convertible pants.
I think convertible pant should be made of more slim fabric.

Anyway I can say it is more comfortable than any other convertible pants I have ever put on.

Stretch Zion Convertibles are my go to!

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

Performance:
The Stretch Zion convertibles where my go to pants for my 12 mile hike link-up of the lower Snoqualmie Pass lakes ( Mason lake, Rainbow lake, Island Lake, Olallie Lake, Talpaus Lake). To do this my wife and I stashed our bikes at the Talapus Trail-head and drove over the the Mason Lake Trail-head to start the hike. After linking up all the lakes we grabbed our bikes and road back to the car.

Through-out the trip, the Zion convertibles hiked well and never let me down. Stretch Zion Pants is like your trusty outdoor partner, always with you, through thick and thin. One of my favorite features are the pockets which have zippers latterly and vertically, giving easy access to whatever you need no matter what activity you may be doing.

Summary:
Prana has made one of the best and versatile outdoor-wear with the Stretch Zion Line. If I'm hiking or climbing the stretch Zion line are my go to bottoms. They may not be the fanciest or the most expensive, but they are one of the most durable, comfortable, and versatile pieces I've ever used.

Pros:
Stretch Zion Fabric breathes extremely well
Great DWR
Fits almost anyone
Fantastic performance / price ratio
Durable
Pants are cut to move with the body instead of impede it.
Pants, Shorts, Convertible; there is a style for everyone

Cons:
Built in belt sometimes loosens

Sturdy, Comfortable, Sweet!

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

I've worn these pants for 3 backpacking seasons and have logged about 100+ miles with them and the only real sign of wear and tear is on the butt, where I sat on a pitchy log. We primarily hike in the Sierra Nevada - often cross-country over rugged terrain with thick, thorny brush, knee-scraping granite outcrops, pant-ripping shale, thundershowers and heat - and these pants have held up great - not a tear yet. The lower legs are easy to remove and reattach, and the pockets hold a Leatherman knife, "Kit" sized energy bars (3), lip balm, stick sun screen and insect repellent. I just purchased my second pair - not because the first need replacing, but because I like them so much I wanted another pair! I highly recommend them.

Sweet digs

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I got a chance to try out my new stretch zion pants this weekend on a backpacking trip and I was very happy with them. Not only do they look good, but they are comfortable as all get out. The waist strap is definitely a nice feature, I am 6' and my waist is between a 34 and 36; the large 32 fits perfect with just a little pull on the waist band.

Great pants

Great fabric, great feel, great fit, great colour( have the charcoal), cargo pockets work great to keep the extra legs.

Awesome

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

These pants are the best pants ever made. They fit true to size and are well made. Have worn them on overseas trips, backpacking through Zion, Bryce, Appalachian Trail and have held up nice. Will be buying more.

Might be the only pants/shorts you need

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

I live in the Rockies, so the one thing I would say is that they're of heavier construction and might be a little warm, if you're somewhere that the temps get up over the 80's, even as shorts. Aside from that, I haven't owned better. Great construction, great fit and with the ability to convert them, what else do you need?

So Perfect!

  • Fit: True to size

I love these convertible pants! The zipped off length is perfect & the material is soft, breathable, stretchy, & surprisingly tough! I have a 33" waist & the Large is a little roomy but the built in belt fixed that. I wouldn't change a single thing about these!

What is the inseam length when zipped off...

Anthony,
The prAna Stretch Zion Convertible Pant has a 12" inseam when they are converted into shorts.

I really want to love these pants!

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

I like Prana, they generally make a very functional and comfortable product. However, I was a little disappointed in these. I'll start with the pro's.

As shorts these are awesome, I love 'em. They fit great (I'm usually a 32-33 waist and the Mediums fit great), have a great length and tons of pockets and features. As pants, they are mighty sharp looking!

The cons are they feel a little stiff and aren't as soft as I've come to expect from Prana garments. The other big complaint is the construction seems kinda shotty on these. Lots of loose threads as well as extra material left untrimmed concerning the zippers which I had to go in and shave down with my pocket knife 3 miles into a hike because the plastic coating around the zippers was scratching into my legs.

I'm not sure if I just got the bad banana in the bunch so I still gave them 4 stars. I hoped for better though.

does the 32 in the size refer to the waist...

does the 32 in the size refer to the waist of the inseam?

Responded on

As Alex said, the 32 does refer to the inseam. Those without a number listed have an inseam of 30 inches. prAna also makes them with a 34 inch inseam as well, but backcountry.com does not seem to carry them. The Sizing chart provided will give you a good idea as to what waist size (M, L, etc) should fit. I personally find that prAna clothing is a bit loose in waist, and I usually wear a size down from my normal in order to get a good active fit so I don't need a belt. This would be best determined by trying some stuff from them on though.

thanks for the feedback. wish BC carried the 34s. just gave my dad the 32s i bought because they fit too short. though as terran mentioned, the M waist fits loose and wasn't a problem.

Responded on

I agree. It's a bummer that pretty much all of backcountry's pants are a 32" inseam. What about the guys who wear a 30x34? I guess there's few of us. I'd be cool with a little looser waist, but you can't pull off pants that are too short.

Great backpacking pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Had a chance to work these pants out this past weekend on a three-day backpacking trip in the Sawtooth mountains of Idaho. The pants are very comfortable, with ample pockets and flexibility. I had no trouble converting to shorts or pants, but needed to be sitting to do so. The only issue I had was when walking through some bushes near a stream, the fabric snagged on my thigh, so now I have a pretty large run right in front. I was hoping to get many miles out of these pants, but will have to find some tougher fabric when backpacking in the rough. They are great for general, all-around hiking, though!

Awesome Hiking Pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great for everything. Between these and the non-convertible version I find myself wearing these 4-5 days a week, they're so comfortable. They look great and extremely versatile. I wear these hiking and rock scrambling and they work really well due the stretchable nature of the fabric. Additionally, they're extremely breathable. They come with a water resistant finish that will eventually wear off after multiple washings, however they dry extremely fast. I went backpacking in Europe last summer with them and was doing laundry in the sink of our hostels/ motels and after ringing them out they'd be dry the next morning.

I have a 33 in waist and a 34 in leg...

Posted on

I have a 33 in waist and a 34 in leg (inseam). It's very important that the leg of my pants is long enough. Is a large going to be long enough in the leg? or is there another brand that accommodates to us lanky fellows?

Best Answer Responded on

No, it will not be long enough. This pant comes in a 34" inseam available on Amazon or the PrAna website. I made the unfortunate mistake of thinking the 32" would be long enough for my lanky legs. It didn't work. That being said, these are some of the most comfortable pants I have ever owned. They stretch nicely and look good enough to wear everywhere. Great for hiking. I have a 31-32" waist and the M is a perfect fit. They also very long inseam for the shorts.

Great hiking pants

Best hiking pant I've used, very comfortable and, so far, durable. The stretchyness really makes it easy to move in. (36in, XL fits well)

Excellent Pants!

I have these in both the roll up and zip-off versions. Hands down, both are my favorite pants for climbing, backpacking, or just general outdoor-wear. They are nice and stretchy but also durable. I'm 5'8" and the legs zip off just below the knee in the size L. They are true to size in the size chart (I have a 34in. waist and the L fits like a glove)

Do yourself a favor and buy these!

Great pants

I don't usually like zip off pants but these are really cool. They are made of the stretch Zion material that is soft, durable, and stretchy. When they are zipped off they are a really nice.
