After it was introduced to the outdoor community, the popularity of the Men's Piero Pant spread like wildfire. Mountain Hardwear has since updated the style to bring this pant in a little closer to the body for a cleaner fit, but don't worry, you won't sacrifice any mobility when you're scrambling over rocks or 'packing the Long Trail.

These pants are so useful you might want more than one pair. Versatile, durable against rock and brush and made with stretch fabric for movement for climbing, hiking or just about anything else you can do outside.

The Piero's are outstanding pants if you're a trad climber or avid hiker that demands durability. My other favorite in this category of pants is the Prana Zion but these are better. The stretch and comfort is insane and has a sweet zippered thigh pocket that is perfect size for your phone. I own two pairs in Grey and Brown and looking to add a third in black before they get discontinued or something. They fit a little baggy which I prefer but the newer models are a bit closer fitting.
I bought 2 pairs of these in 2010. After 2 years of daily use on farms, the only thing that cut the fabric was when I got myself in the knee with a bill hook!
They dry really fast, have just the right amount of pockets, and are thin enough to be comfortable in fairly warm weather. Sadly, I'm going to have to retire these for the summer in Thailand, but I'm hoping that the Mesa pant can more or less replace them....Time will tell!
