Last year I started becoming more aware of the quality and source of my clothes. I noticed the clothes I invested in were the ones I loved, wore the most and they didn’t wear out as quickly. My cost per use for my more expensive items was actually lower than the impulse cheap purchases. This is where prAna entered my life. I fell in love with a handful of their pants and shorts that were originally designed for climbing or yoga to wear them bike commuting and perfect for my active lifestyle. Today I’m going to introduce you to my new favorite pant to pedal around in or to slip on over spandex after a ride.
prAna Annexi Pant
I was a bit hesitant ordering these pants. I’m 5’10 with a 33″ inseam. Typically capris look silly on me or simply don’t fit. The Sutra® stretch and elastic waistband somehow do magic and they fit me perfectly out of the box. Sizing wise, I’m a size 8 and ordered a large for length.
- MSRP: $85
- 53% Hemp / 44% Recycled Polyester / 3% Spandex
- Sutra® stretch woven pull on jogger
- Front and back pockets that can actually hold things
Let’s Talk About Hemp
Before prAna, the only thing I knew about hemp were the necklaces I wore as a teenager. Once I started reading about “Why Hemp” from prAna and other companies I realized this was the fabric I needed in my life. It’s lightweight, resembles linen and doesn’t wrinkle as badly! It seems to be the perfect travel fabric.
prAna Annexi Pant for Bike Commuting
These pants look good paired with a t-shirt or with a dress shirt. Thanks to the slim leg and capri cut they are perfect for pedaling. Another nice function of the hemp is it seems to breathe well which means ventilation when riding! The elastic back band makes for a nice fit when leaned over, but I do wish it had a drawstring or something to tighten up the waist.
