GOAT IS GOOD

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 6' 1"
    Weight: 165 lbs
    Size Purchased: M-32

These are a must have if you live anywhere in hot, dry, humid or cold climates. These are lightweight really breathable and durable. The zip on/off shorts are awesome and are really easy to do. The fit of these is a little more baggy/loose than I typically like but looks aren't everything as they function as they should.

Awesome Pants/Shorts

These pants are awesome! I am wanting to buy a couple more pair because they have been that great! They are super easy to convert into shorts and super comfy and durable. I hike and climb in these regularly and rubbing them against rocks, bushes and branches and there is no sign of wear or abrasion :) I would recommend these to anyone!

Great Climbing Pants! Sizing is Way Off!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 165 lbs

First, if you want a medium, buy a small. I usually buy 32" pants, and those usually run a little large on me (but only a little). In these I was swimming in the medium, I'd say the medium are around 34"-36". The small feels true to a 32", I cinch down the waistbelt just a little (which is all you can really do without it looking and feeling silly).

Second, The quality control is seriously lacking on these. My first pair seemed to be well-made, but I had to return it for a smaller size. The second pair fit well, but had loose threads and stitching imperfections all over the place. Not only was the stitching poor, but it just seemed in poor condition in general- it looked like it was made in a sweatshop, then tossed around a warehouse for a couple years.. The third pair still had a few loose threads, but it was better. [I should note that I ordered all 3 pairs at REI, since backcountry doesn't sell the 30" inseam version.]

That said, these really are great pants, once you get a good pair that's the right size. The stretchy fabric is wonderful, and feels good against the skin. I was concerned that the multiple openings on the cargo pockets would make items more vulnerable to falling out, but the zippers seem secure. The top zippers are protected by a tight fitting overlap, which makes them harder to open, but it's nice because even with the zippers open, items are fairly secure. Overall I'd prefer no side zippers, but the pocket setup works well.

My only complaint is the mesh hand pockets- sure the ventilation is nice, but it's not worth putting such a fragile and snag-prone material in a place meant to hold potentially important objects.. Still the mesh is quality, and not as loose or thin as some mesh material, so I'm hoping it will hold up for a while- I think with care I'll get at least a full climbing season before that happens. I expect the mesh pockets to be the first critical failure on these pants, but if that happens in an unreasonable amount of time, I'll bring it back to REI (or Prana) and get a new pair.

I'm taking off a point for the mesh pockets, poor quality control, and ridiculous sizing, but these really are great pants, and probably the best climbing pants out there. I like them enough that I'll probably buy a pants only version, for wearing around town when I want to look slightly less dorky..

Why just one when you can have TWO!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 3"
    Weight: 195 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

These pants are perfect....I took my first pair around the globe from Switzerland to Bali and they covered me in every climate! The fit is perfect and the fabric wears well. I have enjoyed them so much that I bought another color.....and now my wife swears that they are all that I wear.

Great pair of Shants (SHorts-pANTS)

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 1"
    Weight: 250 lbs
    Size Purchased: XL-32

I have been looking for a replacement for my old convertible pants, or as I like to call them Shants. The prana convertible pants were great. When I first put them on, they fit great, I almost couldn't feel them. They are very light and don't pinch around the waist or in the crotch area. I brought two pairs on an eight day canoe trip and that was all I used the whole time. On hot days I took the pant legs off and at night or on a cool day I put the legs back on. They shed water in light rain and when I got submerged in the water when are canoe got swamped my pants were the first thing to dry out.

Two minor things that would make these pants even better would be 1. slightly larger zipper handles for those cold days when your fingers aren't working as good and 2. marking the left and right pant legs so you don't have to think when you put them on, just look at the label.

Originally I bought two pairs. After trying them on, I order a third pair and now have three colors to choose from.

Great Quality, a bit too baggy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 165 lbs

The pants were great and held up well during my recent hike. They kept me warm when needed and the convertible feature worked flawlessly. My only complaint is that they are a bit too baggy for my personal taste.

Great all purpose pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 1"
    Weight: 190 lbs

Have had my original pair for 3 years. My go to for the approach, Have used on (4) alpine trips, including a decent amount of rock climbing mixed in, and most recent a 2 week outing in Ecuador where these were the only pants I took. Climbed Chimborazo using these as my soft shells (and thermals underneath). As others have noted a little heavy, but the durability is phenomenal. Highly recommend.

Great hiking pant!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 215 lbs
    Size Purchased: XL

I love the stretch fabric and soft feeling of an obviously tough fabric. I am a 38 waist and the XL fit perfectly. I prefer my hikin pants to be a little shorter that normal, so I like the length. The pant legs zip off and each leg is clearly marked. I will be using these a lot this year.

Very comfortable but cargo pockets...

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

Cargo pockets were too narrow for my liking. I had a hard time fitting a standard travel wallet due to the narrow opening. the pocket itself is okay, though, slightly wider and deeper would have been my preference, similar to the TNF Paramount pants. Compared to the TNF's, nicer styling (less tapered at the bottom, no elastic on the back waist) and feel lighter (less thick). If not for the cargo pocket, 5 stars.

Tough pants!

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

These pants are awesome! I bought them mainly for rock climbing, and hiking. The pants that these replaced were developing holes in multiple areas from scraping on rock. I decided to try them ice climbing the other day, my crampons accidentally caught the material in the leg but no holes! I love them so much I'm buying another pair. The only minor criticism I have is the legs run slightly long, but they still earn a 5 star rating!

So Perfect

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

I bought these upon the recommendation of a friend who raved about them. I'm really glad I did it. These are amazing! Unbelievably comfortable. I took the kids down to Goblin Valley (Utah) and hiked around the hoodoos, hiked Little Wild Horse & Bell Canyons and ended with Ding and Dang Canyons. The weather was cooler (November) and I was worried about getting cold – I did not. There were occasions where I had to hike through standing water in the slot canyons and these handle and shed the water so well. Even in the cooler temperatures these dried off very quickly. Also impressed with the durability after scraping against rocks and canyon walls, not a sign of wear. As others have noted, the belt does loosen after a while but nothing that was impeding or annoying.

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.

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?
