Heavenly Pants: Three Scenarios for the PrAna Stretch Zions

Whether you’re meeting friends at the crag or that special someone for coffee, the Prana Stretch Zion Pants deliver the performance needed for outdoor pursuits, along with the look for fashionably navigating everyday life. Because of their versatility, the PrAna Zions have become a staple of many outdoorsy men’s and women’s wardrobes over the years. But, out of all possibilities, there are a few ideal scenarios to have these rugged pants on you.

Scenario One: The Lunch Lady

Most days at lunch, you escape your desk to stroll around the wooded trails surrounding your office building, trying to squeeze a little bit of nature into your sedentary work life. A few weeks ago, you were shocked to discover a proud boulder with a steep face standing alone in the forest not far from your office. Upon closer inspection, the face appeared to have enough holds to make it climbable, even if the slopey top out looked a little sketchy. Since discovering “the office boulder,” you’ve haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.

Over the last week, your lunchtime walks have turned into bouldering sessions, as you work the moves on what you’ve started calling The Lunch Lady. Although the PrAna Stretch Zion Pants haven’t helped you send yet, their good looks have fit right in around the office, while their stretchy material has allowed you to spend your breaks with The Lunch Lady without having to change between work and play.

Scenario Two: Hiking for Answers

This project at work is killing you. You’ve been stuck in the same spot all week, and you still haven’t made a breakthrough. It seems your best ideas come when you’re the farthest from your computer. Tomorrow, you’re going to hike before work.

It’s still dark outside when the alarm goes off. “There’s nothing like an alpine start to a work day,” you think to yourself as you pull on your PrAna Stretch Zion pants. You begin your hike as the sun rises and the morning’s cold darkness begins to ebb. You’re thankful you wore your Prana Zion Pants as you’re pushing pretty hard to make it to the office on time, and their breathable fabric is helping you stay comfortable in the warming air.

Descending to the car, it hits you: the key to your project! You’re so excited when you get to work, you forget to even change out of your hiking clothes. Not only did nobody notice, but instead, everyone has complimented you on how good you look today.

Scenario Three: Trying Without Trying

Everyone is meeting at the climbing gym this Thursday night and then heading out for drinks…including her. You’ve liked her for a while, and this might be your best chance to impress her with your skill on the walls and your banter at the bar. But, you don’t want her to think you’re trying too hard, either.

You walk into the climbing gym, wearing the same PrAna Zions you graced at the office, and pull your harness on over them. Of course, you did roll up and snap the pants’ legs, hoping she’ll notice your footwork on the wall. So far, so good: You’ve styled most of the routes you’ve been on, and thanks to the Zion’s abrasion-resistant material, you look no worse for wear. You’re sure she’s impressed, but you can’t let her know you’re trying, either. Removing your harness, you notice your pants still look great, so you play it cool, leaving for the bar in what you climbed in and knowing that, worst-case scenario, if she throws a drink at you, at least your Zions are water resistant.

 

From the outdoors to the office, the classroom to the crag, or the boulders to the bar, the PrAna Zion Pants will get you there in style.
