Prana Nemesis Knicker Reviews:


Though I have some quality concerns about them, I love these pants. Seriously, they are perfect manpris in terms of the fabric (light, but not fragile). I was initially concerned about the attached belt, but it works great and is really easy to deal with. I also love the crotch vents (wow, just re-read that and it sounds so, wrong). They are really the perfect summer pants for those who can't deal with jeans in the summer, but can't get away with shorts at work. These seem to be the ideal compromise. Now for my concern: the stitching on these (and I have two pairs -- they both have this issue) is uneven. It would almost appear as though they were handmade on a sewing machine, but by someone who had only a few months' experience. They hold together of course, but they do look a bit "unfinished" as a result. And of course, my main concern is for their longevity. Given that Zappos has such a great return policy I'm sure that if I have a problem I can return them for replacement. But it is something I wanted to mention here for all of you. Right now I (clearly) love them. Time will tell how they hold up. If something happens, I'll amend this review.

I got me a pair of Knickers! "What's that?" my friends ask, and I peddle away on my shiny red beach cruiser with my knickers coyly revealing & hiding my calves and purple socks. They ooh and aah. These Pranas add pizazz to every guy's closet of drab ordinariness. While I ride my bicycle in my Pranas girls are scratching their pretty heads, trying to decide if I'm wearing shorts or long pants. And just as they're about to come to a conclusion--kapow!--a flash of my calves jolts them back to undecided confusion. Prana Knickers are great for bicyclists, especially in winter. They let your thighs breathe while keeping you styling at the same time. Prana knickers -- every fashion-dullard's nemesis.

Great climbing "pants"

I love these shants! I own two pairs and I like this seasons better than lasts. The cut is the same as far as I can tell but they gave it a new buckle that is much easier to adjust. I was surprised at how durable these are for how they feel. After a whole summer of climbing they still look good! My favorite thing abot these is that they are stretchy and don't restrict your movement at all! I can high step without any problem!!

I love these knickers! They are soft, yet very durable, as well as comfortable. They look great with a polo pullover or a plaid shirt! I say, buy these britches, you will love them! I can't find anything like this in stores and Zappos make it so easy and affordable!

I really like their light weight and comfort factor. The pull tight built in belt feature is cool so you can adjust the fit throughout your day. The material breathes well and moves with you. These are great for summer. Buy these!

I love this material. It is the same material that prAna uses in their Stretch Zion product that I love. Durable, stretchy, wouldn't change a thing.

I love these pants! Super comfy, great stretch, if you start feeling too warm roll them up to shorts length.
