prAna Zion Pants– The most comfortable, stylish, durable, and affordable pants you can buy for weeks on end use of backcountry exploration.
Finding a pair of outdoor pants that works in the field and in town can be hard to come by. Fortunately, prAna, created the Zion pant for anyone serious about living in a pair of pants for weeks on end. I bought the prAna Zion pants for my trip to Patagonia in 2015. They were comfortable to wear, shed light rain, and didn’t smell after multiple days of hiking. When we were back in town, a quick wipe down and they were good to go for dinner that night.
Ever since purchasing these pants for our trip to Patagonia, they’ve been my go to for our weekend adventures. Most recently, Cassie and I took a week and half traveling through Alberta, Canada and parts of Montana on a road trip that was full of hiking and adventure. Going in the middle of September, we hoped for late Summer sun but were greeted with early Winter snow. The Zion pants performed amazingly yet again, in fact I only took them off to sleep. They handled a stiff breeze on ridge tops, shed light snow and moisture from walking through wet brush, and when they finally did get wet, they dried quickly as I continued on hiking. The Zion pants never got that “stiff” feeling from a weeks worth of sweat, dirt and grime.
