Prana Stretch Zion Pant – Perfect Pants for the Active Man
I bought the Prana Stretch Zion Pant ($89) for my husband for Christmas. They are pricey but so worth it! He has worn them hiking and snowshoeing several times now and there are so many features he raves about. I’m not kidding – he RAVES. About pants. Who knew?
