I love these dang pants. They make my butt look good. I mean you would think it would be easy, right? However, it seems lately that the fashion world thinks the ideal female form is that of a 12 year old boy. So booya prAna for making a dang pair of pants that feature my assets perfectly. Vanity and shallowness aside they are also very functional, the gusseted inseams means slot canyons like Peek-A-Boo and Spooky are well… a breeze. The quick drying fabric comes in handy when you have to do a waist deep wade, it was literally just minutes before they were dry. Spring hiking in cotton is such a terrible idea. (We sell quick dry undies too!) It is nice to have a functional pair of pants that don’t make you look like a tourist in your vacation facebook posts.
Low rise relaxed fit prAna Performance Jasmine Knickers in Cargo Green.
“The prAna Jasmine Knicker is a performance knicker that can be worn around town before heading to the hills. Stretch fabric and a gusseted inseam allow for a complete range of motion that’s ideal for bouldering and longer ascents, while water resistance shrugs off puddles and surprise showers”. (swiped this description from the prAna website)
prAna is a company that is in line with Escalante Outfitter’s mission in that they use environmentally conscious materials and practices for all of their clothing. The clothing lines we carry focus on these same ideals. Functional for what you will use it for but good for the world in which you are using it.
We also carry a great selection outdoor clothing and natural accessories from these to vendors as well, check them out!
