Really a great pair of boxers. Very Comfortable. These lasted me a couple years before the elastic gave out and they became enormous. Not sure if it was the washer/dryer setting or what, but the elastic starts to bacon. Oh well, will still buy replacements.

This jacket is obviously very well constructed and is made of the crunchy gore text pro that feels bullet proof. I just can't use this jacket because of the size. At 5-10 and a slim/average build the small is both overly baggy and too short at the same time. It's clear it's meant for layering in cold conditions, but then why barely make it come down to the belt? I would be swimming in this for just an outer rain layer climbing a 14er in summer.

This is a great day pack for the person who likes to bring a little more than is probably necessary and not have to worry about smashing stuff in and tight zippers. Sure you could hike a 14er with a smaller pack but if being prepared gives you peice of mind, this is the pack for you. I use it to hold 2.5 liters of water, extra layers, shell, lunch, snacks, gloves, hat, steripen, phone charging battery, headlamp and sunblock. Plenty of room. Trekking pole holder is nice. I like the clean flat back that Osprey uses. Originally bought the Camelback fourteener but this was much more comfortable on the back. The side straps are nice and sturdy. Strap pockets hold headlamps, bug spray, extra batteries, etc. I am really liking this pack.

Did not even take the tags off because the back of the pack has a large cushy foam-like back support piece near the bottom of the bag, along with with smaller ones that rest against your back that you can easily see in the pictures. I guess it's supposed to be for support but that large piece is just not comfortable. It felt like there was a lot of pressured applied to that part of my back. Hip belt is also flimsier than others in this range.

I wanted to like these pants. I really liked the shape of them in the images, but they just did not look anything like it in my opinion. I ordered both sizes as I was sort of between two. The biggest issue I had is they are overly bell bottom-ish. They got extremely narrow in the knees, and then massive at the leg opening. I mean I was wearing my snowboard boots and I was confused what an opening that big was trying to fit over.? Ordered the Volcum chino instead and they were a much different shape. The material was nice however on these.

These pants are really great. I am using these for hiking/travel. I kept running into the same problem when looking for this type of pants and tried on many many pairs at a local REI. All of the light material pants to me have the look of snowboarding pants, where the pant just extends straight down from the waist to the knee to the ankle with no shape or fit. If you find a pair with a little more fit, the material is usually thicker and more like a jean material. Prana's pants are the best of both worlds. These pants are made out of the most comfortable material i've tried on. They have this unique stretchy feel that I haven't seen anywhere else. They are light and feel great. The Brion's look great. I was a bit worried that they would look like hipster skinny jeans but I don't think they do. I would compare them to bootcut jeans with a nice fitted look. (there are some pics around the internet of people actual wearing them). If you want something a little looser, the stretch zion is the way to go. They are still not overly baggy, but are a little looser than the Brions. I ultimately went with the Brions, because of the fit and because there is no cargo pocket which, although could come in handy, felt a little awkward when walking, only being on one leg. The Brions are so comfortable.

I bought my exact size in other pants and they fit great.

I can't say how they hold up as I've just got them.
