The Prana Men's Stretch Zion Convertible Pant is a convertible hiking pant for ever-changing weather. The Stretch Zion Convertible is made with a nylon and spandex blend for lots of stretch and movement in the outdoors. The zip-off legs make it possible to get an early start in the chilly mornings and move right into the mid-day heat without skipping a beat. The cargo pockets on either side can handle plenty of snacks as you move along the trail. A durable water repellent finish prevents a light rain from soaking in and quick dry time keeps you comfortable. A non-bulky cinch belt in the hem holds them up right where you want them for the full day.

SPECIFICATIONS of the Prana Men's Stretch Zion Convertible Pant
If I could only own one pair of pants, it would be the non-convertible version of these. If I could own two pair of pants it would be the non-convertible version of these and these. Moral of the story is I need the non-convertible version of these too.I am going to make it my mission in life to get more of these pants and wear them everywhere. I am pretty sure I can get away with wearing these to work, if not certainly the non-convertible style. These are easily the most comfortable pants I have ever owned, and that is coming from a guy that doesn't like wearing pants. I usually don't give my opinion on matters, as I know that nobody cares, but these pants are the bee's knees. Yep.The quality is top notch, the fabric is unnaturally comfortable (not a religious man myself, but I see how the more conservative of us might find these pants sinful for some reason), and they look pretty sharp. Without a doubt, the only complaint is the price. I usually do not spend this much.
Can't say enough nice things about these pants. Breathable, durable, allow for great movement, and damn if they don't look nice. Oh, and they can also convert to shorts which is fantastic if you're hiking in the mountains where it's really cold in the morning, but warms up a lot throughout the day.
These pants fit better than any other I've tried. I have an athletic build and muscular thighs and these look great and are very comfortable (they're not super baggy like the North Face convertible pant). They also stretch, so even better. The pockets are deep and functional. The extra zip on the leg pockets is a nice touch. Also, the length of the shorts when the legs are zipped off is perfect.
The pants are excellent, get rave reviews everywhere, I won't go into too much detail there. The pants have unique belt tightening system, but I failed to realize it had no actual belt loops as well, so you can't wear a belt with it even when you want to. This can be an issue if you planned to camp and were bringing a flashlight/camping knife/whatever else you may have wanted to attached to a belt. So just be aware.Comfort level is unmatched, though. Great pants.
These pants are your perfect companion for your next trip to the mountains. The quality of the material seems superior and the zippers are extremely easy to use. No fumbling or jamming of the zippers like other pants. Also, they respond very well to rain and don't get wet at all (light rain).I'm pretty slim and the pants don't look like a potato bag on me. Def front country stuff. :)
These are the best outdoor pants I have ever worn. They are durable and light enough to be used for extended backpacking trips and versatile enough to use in a multitude of weather conditions. The pants are made of nylon/spandex (mostly nylon) so they offer a fair amount of "stretch". I would definitely recommend this product to a friend and have already ordered a second pair in a different color.
"Super comfortable and convenient but lousy pockets"
The stretch in the pants make them super-comfortable for all day and all night wear. You name it - transoceanic plane rides, 24 hours of travel including a nighttime hiking up a mountain, fitful sleep at the summit, and hiking down the next day, or just plain walking - you hardly even notice you are wearing them. The convertibility into shorts is perfect for cutting down on packing when traveling to a clime with some swings in temperature and they do shed water for those times when you get caught in some rain.BUT - who designed the pockets? The zippers are hard to grip and the opening is barely big enough to put a passport in. Make them an extra inch or so wider and add a something bigger to grasp when opening or closing and they would be perfect. As they are, they are not quite good enough. I had to resort to a fanny pack to carry incidentals.
It had one of this and decided to get another one of different color. Very comfortable to wear and can be used from climbing, skating to general usage. Very versatile - can be pants or shorts depending on your needs. And it is quite water resistance as well, good for light rain till you find a shelter. Quality better than Columbia convertible pants which tore off after months of usage.
"Great movement in these pants! Loved it"
First the bad points...the "size guide" is useless and incomplete, MooseJaw please fix this. It doesn't address all the sizing options available when you order the product. I had to send my first pair back for a different size because of this. The only other bad thing is that these things are pet hair magnets. Get a khaki color if you have pets.Now for the good points...I have a thicker lower body build and these pants were not constricting at all. I was trying to get the pants to bind up by doing awkward things in them but they were great. They are thin enough for summer hiking and have functional pockets. They are also very very comfortable. I definitely recommend these pants!On a side note, if you are looking for an even thinner convertible hiking pant check out the Columbia Silver Ridge Convertible. They are definitely not as roomy, but are considerably thinner and not water resistant, so they should dry faster.
The material has just enough flex to allow for a full range of motion but also remains durable. I ran them under the faucet to see what their water resistance factor is and it should hold up to some light rain but I won't be leaving my rain pants at home. Fit is perfect - not tight, not baggy (Medium/32" inseam for me @ 5'11'', 165lbs). I'll be buying the non-zip version for travel and keeping these for the trail.
I had been deciding between these and Patagonia's rock craft pants but decided to go with these. So glad I did. I'm pretty surprised that Prana has managed to design a pair of zip-offs that actually look good (well, relatively good). The material is INCREDIBLY comfortable and so stretchy that it basically feels like you're not wearing pants; perfect for huge moves and acrobatics. The waist is reinforced with softer fabric, too. The waist strap eliminates the need for a belt. The zippers are pretty high-quality and hold up to a lot of abuse. Oh, and the pockets (there are a lot of pockets) have top- and side-zippers for when you're in a harness. These are not wind-proof -- they're not designed to be -- so keep that in mind, and go with a softshell pant if you're climbing in windier ranges. Oh, and the button is hard to button at first, but it gets easier with use.
