Product Description

From Prana:

Built from a lightweight blend, the Mantis has European styling and finishes mid-calf.

* Lightweight fabrication
* New streamlined waistband adjustment system
* Inseam gusset
* Side cargo pockets
* Climbing brush holder
* 205” inseam medium
* 70 Cotton / 30 Poly 4.80 oz

My experience with the product:

I have used these knickers for about 2 years and I like them:
The cut is roomy and unrestrictive. Most Prana's clothing line is geared towards climbing and either have a nice roomy cut and/or some stretch to it.

The only problems I encountered with these knickers was that the (older model) velcro closures pretty much disintegrated before the useful life of the pants was even close to being over. I had to replace the velcros.

You better believe it. Have had a pair of these for at least four years. They are holding up well. Love them them for off trail scrambles, leg protection . Not hot like pants and great freedom of movement.
