Buying a pair of pants isn’t usually a guy’s idea of fun. It’s hard enough finding a pair that fits you right, let alone will give you enough room to move around comfortably.
That all changes with the Zion Stretch pants from Prana. Here’s why:
Just like it says in the name, these pants have some stretch to them, which makes it more comfortable doing any type of activity which requires moving. They’re great for hiking, climbing, biking, and even weight lifting because they will allow you to move much easier than any other type of pants you’ve ever warn.
The Gusseted Crotch
I never knew how much a gusseted crotch could improve comfort until I tried on a pair of pants that had it. For those who don’t know, a gusseted crotch basically means that there is some extra fabric in the crotch area that makes it very comfortable to bend and squat without the pants constricting your movements.
One of the best things about these pants is that they look great. Yes, you can use them for any type of physical activity, but you can also wear them to the office or to church without looking like you just hiked a three-mile trail. They can be casual with a t-shirt and a pair of flip flops, but will also look great for business settings with the right shirt and shoes.
Not only is the material stretchy, but it is also great at drying quickly. This is great when you’re out hiking or doing any other activity where you might get them wet. They’ll dry quickly which will keep them from chafing your skin as you keep hiking or engaging in similar physical activities.
Finally, the pockets on these pants are a great addition. There are two back pockets and one side zip pocket. What I like most is that the pockets are very low profile. They don’t stick way out like traditional cargo pants pockets. The side pocket especially is low profile and is hardly even noticeable. It even zips on the side and on the top to make it easier to store your stuff.
