The Briann Pant for women is made from our original Stretch Zion performance fabric and woven with a durable water repellent (DWR) finish. These mid-rise fitted pants feature quick drying technology, UPF 50+ sun protection, traditional 5-pocket styling, and a skinny leg in multiple inseams.
FIRST OFF BEWARE ON THE SIZE LISTINGS OF THESE PANTS, I chose one that just said 8 and received an 8SHORT. Make sure to double check when they are added to your cart!
CNTraveler, take note. There’s nothing you can’t do in these pants. They aced all of the following tests: sprinting through Istanbul airport, absorbing pints of sweat resulting from said sprinting without sagging, going from fully saturated to mostly dry within 10 min., sleeping in a car outside of the hotel because you arrived too late to check in, walking 10 miles in the city, hiking in the Alps, fine dining, air travel.
Water resistant pants that don't make you look like a dweeb. You can wear them as regular pants or go hiking in them. They have the typical girl pants problem of the pockets being pointlessly shallow. Otherwise they're great.
So I bought these and the Brenna at the same time to decide which I'd prefer for an upcoming trip. I've uploaded a side by side of both those styles for you to compare.
Purchased the Briann pant after researching good travel-worthy and stylish pants. I only wear skinny jeans when I'm not dressed up for work, so these are just my style for a trip to Europe. They were super wrinkly when I pulled them out of the package, so I was worried that they would not be appropriate for traveling. However, after a few minutes, all of the wrinkles were gone and they looked great! These pants look good with my casual sneakers and trendy booties. So comfortable. I am 5'3", 116 lbs, curvy. Waist-26.5" Hips-36.5" The size 4 short fit perfectly and the stretch allows me to wear a base layer underneath.
I bought these primarily because of the price. I own 3 pairs of travel pants, including the Anatomie Skylar pants. I like the Skylar pants more, but these are a great (and less expensive) alternative. They fit well, albeit a bit snug, but they're comfortable. I don't feel like my movement is restricted. I haven't travelled with them yet, but they shipped to me folded in a legal size envelope. I unrolled the pants, and there were fairly wrinkle free. That tells me that they should travel well. They're also light as a feather, which bodes well for packing.
5'11", 155lbs, smaller waist, bigger bottom and thighs. I would've gone w/ the 6 tall. They were long enough and seemed well made. I had a little gaping at the waist, & did not like the back pocket shape/placement on me. They were quite snug around the knees & it didn't seem like they would have much room for movement. (although they have some stretch) I opted for the Halle style instead.
I wore these on a recent trip to Yosemite and to see family. They transitioned seamlessly from hiking to Thanksgiving dinner and packed really well. They easily dried overnight in my hotel room.
These are so highly regarded in the onebag / herbag traveller community that these were high on my list to buy. They're quick-drying, UV resistant and really lightweight, whilst being able to wear them with just about anything. I bought the 'coal' version on PrAna's own website (which was on sale but ended up paying ~£90 with fees and taxes). A bit of a risk not knowing what size I would definitely be (a challenge for petite travellers too). I found this on Amazon to my surprise but never could get my size. But keep watching the item you want, you might get it... :)
The fabric of these is like work slacks, it isn't the same sort of stretchy fabric that my other Prana pants have, so these cant be used for hiking. They are very nice though. I couldn't wear them as tight as the models in the pics, and FYI that i wear a 10 in the Prana Halle pants, but have to wear a 12 for these and they aren't cut well for someone with a big butt and small waist.
These are awesome pants! Water just bounces off of them, they fit great, and are nice and stretchy. Look nice enough for in the city, but are technical enough for hiking. What more could I ask for?
