Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 115 lbs
Size Purchased: 2 Regular

Apparently in Prana I must be a size 0, because these are enormous on me. The waist is too big so the pants sag so I am standing on the bottom 2" of the legs. But I won't be exchanging them for a smaller size....
The pants are very heavy due to excess fabric "features". Both the rear and the cargo pockets have enormous bulky double-flaps to cover them, and as a previous reviewer noted, they have button closures but the button holes are covered so you can't actually button them - a baffling design. Also all the pockets have sewn-in exterior "pleats" that don't actually expand - so they are just a design feature that adds bulk to your pockets on your butt and thighs (right where you want it, right?) As noted by others, when the legs are on, the zipper pulls are on the inner thigh rather than the outer thigh - so they rub with every step. Huge design flaw. The legs are wide, and get wider at the bottom, so you could probably put these on over your shoes/boots.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 115 lbs
Size Purchased: 2x32

I am 5'3" 115 lbs and ordered the size 2x32. The color "shark" is a very dark gray.
Pros: They fit me exactly. They look great - no weird bulky or tight spots, no saggy crotch, no back gap when sitting/leaning forward. They are extremely lightweight and comfortable. They are long enough that they cover my ankles when I am sitting. When converted to shorts, they look like regular slim shorts that stop just above the knee. The side cargo pocket is big enough to accommodate a phone (and more) and has a Velcro closure. This pocket is pleated such that it doesn't bulge out when empty.
Cons: as with all convertible pants, the zipper at lower/mid thigh is a little uncomfortable/stiff feeling. The back pockets are small and have no closure - I wouldn't use them for money or a phone. All of the button holes (one at the waist, one on each lower leg to hold strap for rolled-up legs) are too small for the buttons, but you can force them a couple of times (requires strong fingers) and they stretch out. The front zipper (not the leg zipper) is so short that when the pants are fully unzipped, they *barely* fit over my (quite petite) bottom & hips to get on/off.
Overall once they are on, they fit so beautifully and are so lightweight, I would definitely buy these again.
