That being said, these things fit me like an absolute dream, and have enough stretch in them that I can do a full split and they move with me. The gusseted crotch really does help when you're reaching out/flagging at awkward angles, and once again these jeans move with your body so easily. I feel like it's the guy equivalent of yoga pants, however they're not skin tight.
The fit around the thighs and behind is comfortable, sculpts the rear end well. Down to the knees they leave enough room for your leg muscles to flex, and look fitted, however aren't skinny jeans. Below the knee, they don't flare, however they're not tapered. Not quite boot cut, but not purely straight fit. Lastly, the pockets are really deep, stopping about 3 inches above the knee. Kind of a nice feature. They're soft, look worn (but not worn out,) and can be used as your regular daily workhorse jean.
I took these out of the box and tried them on, and still had them on 7 hours later. Definitely worth the cost.
The deep pockets and gusseted inseam is what really makes them, though. With the gusseted inseam, I can sit cross-legged or throw a high kick with no problem (I actually can not throw a high kick but if I could, I know it would be no problem!).
They are comfortable and look great. Machine wash and dry. I have 3 different pairs of these and I can not imagine owning a different type of jeans. 100% vegan, too, including the leather-like tags (I forget what they are made of but it is listed on Prana's website--no animal ingredients in these jeans).
Cons: Very baggy. I can take these jeans off without taking my shoes off, for instance. I personally prefer a more straight legged fit, and I feel like the picture they have of this pair doesn't accurately reflect their actual fit. Also, while climbing I found that these jeans would bind at the hip which did limit movement to a degree. Still much more freedom than a regular pair of non-stretch jeans but nowhere near as good as a pair of athletic shorts or similar.
Inconsistent fitting? First pair of pants fit a bit more tight and slimmer. 2nd pair was baggier than the first. I'm not sure why this is.
These jeans do have stretch in them. They have extra stitching under the crotch that allows a fuller motion, like a diamond stitching with extra fabric. It does poke at your taint a little. The pockets are deep. The length of the pants are a little long.
I went rock climbing in these and completely forgot I was in jeans. I couldn't ask for more.
I also bicycle in these daily; their range of motion makes riding more comfortable than most jeans. (The material is still denim so they're nowhere near as comfortable as proper riding gear for long rides.)
I wear these everywhere.
The pair I had before these were $170 Joe's. While these are not quite as comfortable or good looking as the Joe's, the range of motion and durability makes these by far my preferred jeans.
- Range of motion (!!!)
- Looks decent
- Good sized pockets (big enough for my iPhone 6 to not get jammed into my hip while I'm riding my bike.)
- I've had better looking jeans (although these aren't bad by any means)
- Slightly too long in the legs.
