    Super comfy

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    Fit:True to size
    Size Bought35x32

    First off, I love these pants, which is a bit of a surprise. I am very picky when it comes to the feel of any fabric that touches my skin. These pants have the feel of well worn jeans or your favorite sweatshirt. I am hardcore on my clothing when I’m out in nature. I’ve scrambled over rocks, low crawled through underbrush, crawled on hands and knees to get pictures, and sludged through ankle and calf deep mud in the middle of a down pour in these pants. So far so good. I was a little fearful that where the zipper is would rub on my skin and irritate me, but it hasn’t. The ability to remove the lower portion of my pants has been invaluable when I’m covered in mud or the sun comes out and I’m getting toasty.

    Great, comfortable, durable, convenient, easy zip on and off and slide over shoes. Double zippered side pockets are very helpful for quick access standing or sitting. Get a little shorter so they dont sag around your shoes when you have the zippers half zipped which is the way I prefer to wear them unless real cold. My original size was 32x32 then I chose a 31x30 for that reason.

    I purchased these Prana convertible pants with the intent of losing the lower half when needed, but zipping them back on when the temps start to drop. Great in theory, but I couldn't get the damn lowers back on while I was wearing the shorts. I had to take them off and then zip them back on. I would say these pants frustrated me to the point I doubt I will unzip while out and about. I will either wear them as shorts or wear them as pants. I think the zipper design could be a bit easier? No, I'm not mentally or physically challenged either.

    Im exchanging for smaller size as I bought waist 30 (Im a 28/30 waist, 130 lbs woman). 32 works for my 5'10 frame but 34 length might have been better but sold out.

    I use this for summit fever and outdoor concerts. Keeps me super dry, looks nice and can be worn in comfort where ever needed. Bonus, start the day on a cold summit in pants, end the day with chicken legs in shorts. Pros: Just get them. They won't rip on rocks while you're climbing, you can wear them to a cold outdoor event. Cons: None.

    Ok so I've been on this quest for the perfect pant that stretches but doesn't look stretchy for feel too light and this is the one...these pants have the balance that others miss and, and, and, they stay stretchy without losing their fit and falling down all the time....which is what happens with lot's of the other brands. As an added bonus, they will make you the talk of the office, trail, gym, or beach, as everybody will stop you and want to know what type of ants they are and where you got them. Step up....buy these pants now!

    Ok

    These pants were perfect for hitting the canyon at buckhorn wash in the San Rafael Swell. They dried really quickly and weren't too heavy even when soaked. Will definitely be adding more to my drawer

    33x34 has been my go to size in these pants for years with no issue. This latest pair are wwwaaayyy too big now, and I know for a fact that I'm not getting smaller. These new ones fit like 34x36 instead of 33x34. Come on Prana! You're better than that. Going to return for a smaller size.

    I was on the fence for a long time for these pants, Ive never been a fan of the convertibles. I finally took the plunge and was glad I did! These are super durable, lightweight and breathable. They dry fast when they get wet and are really durable. Would definitely buy again!

    I wear these pants for all of my outdoor adventures from backpacking the wind rivers to rock climbing in the desert. I love the convertible feature for days that turn from cold to warm really fast, because you can go from pants to shorts so easily. They also give you the perfect amount of stretch and movement for big moves while climbing. I highly recommend these pants.

    Just received these pants. Have not actually used them for hiking, but I do have some initial impressions after wearing them outdoors for a spell. First of all.. if you've read other reviews, there is a pretty universal opinion that the leg bottoms are too wide. I have to agree. I typically wear a 32-30 pant, and the fit of the waist is accurate. They fit nicely in that regard. The length seems to be pushing about a half to 3/4 of an inch too long, but hiking boots still keep the hem off the ground. The width of the lower legs is pretty huge though. They'll be swishing at the ankles when I walk, unless of course I zip off the legs and are using as shorts. My guess is that the extra billowing effect you get from the extra wide leg bottoms probably helps keep good air movement in there while you're actively walking. Perhaps that's the reason they are larger that normal? Or maybe they are larger to ease getting them over your shoes when you remove the bottoms, since an ankle zipper is absent. The material is awesome. If you've ever had your hands on the Marmot Scree pant, then compare it to that. I'm sure they'll repel light mist and dewy foliage well, and they seem to block wind pretty well too. But at the same time they seem to breath readily. The fabric is a little thick/heavy for dead of summer hiking, but I think they'd be fine up until about the 65-70 degree mark. I suppose zipping the legs off at that point is the thing to do. They appear rugged enough to take rock abrasions and busting though some brush if you need to. The thigh pockets are large enough, but the zippered openings are a little tight to reach in through. However, one cool feature is that the cargo pockets have a zippered top opening, but they also have a zipper opening on the side of each of those pockets. The side zip seems like it will make it a lot easier to retrieve anything you may have in there. Rear pockets lack a closure of any sort which is unfortunate, but not a deal breaker. I general only stash a Buff or bandana in there anyways. Overall, they are a nice hiking/camping pant and I'm sure to get plenty of use out of them.

    Odd Fit

    Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    Size Bought30x30
    Height5` 5"

    I have been looking for hiking pants to give to my boyfriend. I love that these are convertible and come in waist by length sizing! I decided to give them a try, but they were a really odd fit. The waist fit perfectly, true to size! The length was a tad long, but the legs especially the bottoms were huge! The legs looked double wide, it made the bottom look very weird. The pants just ended up looking huge over all and are going to be returned. On a plus side, the material of them is awesome, and it feels like it would be great for hiking if they fit right! They will definitely keep water out and be comfortable all day long.

    I bought a pair in the charcoal color, but the actual color is darker than pictured. I like the lighter, more faded look and I wonder if the dark color will fade over time, or does the color hold fast with this type of man-made fabric?

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

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

    it refers to the inseam

    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.

    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.

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

    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? Jesse

    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.
