A few years ago, I purchased my very first pair of what I call “outdoorsy” pants, made from durable fabric with some stretch to it. They were made by prAna. The comfort factor blew my mind, and they warmly welcomed me to my new “Life Beyond Jeans”. I was hooked. Now prAna pants are better than ever.
I was recently approached to try out a #7DayStretch test in some prAna pants, and quickly accepted the challenge. Excited to see they come in three length options, I selected a tall pair of Women’s Halle Pants.
My mission: To sport my new prAna Halle pants for 7 days straight, testing out the fit, fabric, and wear.
Unfortunately for me, I can’t really go play outside for a week straight.
But fortunately for me, prAna Halle pants look great and work for just about anything you plan to do during your day.
Are you ready? Here we gooooo…..! (Plus there’s a prAna discount code for Colorado Mountain Mom readers at the end.)
One Week of Adventure in prAna Halle Pants #7DayStretch
[Subtitle: A week’s worth of Shoes Tami Wore.]
That’s a wrap! A full week wearing my prAna Halle pants. Here’s my thoughts after taking this #7DayStretch Challenge.
Overall Take on prAna Halle Pants
Fit: I’m a bit curvy, and these pants fit like a glove. Flattering cut. True to size, not too tight, nor too loose. Even thought they have stretch, they don’t start to fall down after wearing them a few hours. They have an internal drawstring at the waist to customize the fit even further, but I found I didn’t need to use it… even on subsequent days of wear. Love that they are available in three lengths.
Fabric: I was really impressed with this fabric technology – ‘Zion’ performance woven with durable water repellent (DWR) finish. Although I haven’t had them long, I can tell they are durable, and are unlikely to snag or fade. The fabric is thick, but breathable – I wore them on some hot Western Colorado days, and didn’t feel overheated. The stretch is fantastic, and I’m not sure how they do it… but they really don’t stretch out when you wear them. Let’s hear it for #7DayStretch – hip, hip hooray!
Quality/Design: Well built, quality materials. Nice double seaming and design touches. My only quibble is that neither the slim leg pocket (which is a nice feature), nor the front pockets are large enough to fit my iPhone. Only the rear pockets, which isn’t my preference of where to store my phone. Otherwise, great style.
Eco-Friendly: Bonus points to prAna for the awesome way my Halle pants arrived. Sturdy paper envelope, straw string tie, zero plastic packaging (see opening image). A+.
I can’t wait to take these baby’s hiking! They roll up so nicely for capris, with snap tabs to hold them in place… making them super versatile for both coverage and temperature regulation. They won’t be left behind on any future outdoor adventures of mine! The Halle would work great for both travel and outdoors.
