Great Pants
July 22, 2012

I've purchased numerous Prana clothing items over the years and am always more than satisfied with the quality and style. The Essex pants are no exception. I have 5 pairs of these pants and would purchase more if they had more colors! The fit is perfect, they are lightweight, water resistant and super comfortable. Perfect for both activities like hiking as well as traveling.

Perfect for Hiking
April 19, 2012

These pants are perfect for any young woman who wants something a little more fashionable. I weigh 145lbs and am around 5'6" and ordered a size 6. They fit comfortably almost like a good pair of jeans and ride a few inches below my bellybutton which is perfect. The Prana Essex Pants for women will be a great asset to your camping/hiking wardrobe.

Great Pants for active lifestyle
April 26, 2012

I was looking for a lightweight and fast drying comfortable pant that I could travel and hike in. I think the Essex pant is perfect. I rate these pants very well for their comfort and quality. These will be my go to pants for any hiking trips or travel. I was worried the pockets would look bulky looking, but with the fit they work great. I am 5'5" and 135 lbs and the size 6 fit perfectly.

Love them!
April 25, 2012

I am always looking for pants that look good, FIT, and aren't jeans. These fit the bill! I'm tall and 145 pounds. The size 8 is perfect. I am going to Portland OR for a week of exploring in June and they ate going to be my "go to" pants. zip pockets a plus. From plane out to red eye home to NH. I've already worn them on 2 hikes and they fit the bill.

Pros: fit like a glove, Ease of use

Great lightweight pants
January 31, 2013

These are my third pair of Prana pants - love this brand. I'm 5'8" and 170 and the 12's fit perfectly. Love the flat pockets on the back, side pockets are zippered and they're a secure zipper without being bulky. Length is great for taller people. LOVE the fabric, lots of stretch and give, and fast drying. Don't hold stains or dirt. Fantastic products!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
