Poor quality

Reviewed by Amanda from California on Sunday, July 31, 2016
This is the first, and probably last, purchase of a prAna product I've ever made. I'm typically weary of these very expensive and hyped-up brands, but I figured since the clearance is $18, I'd give them a try. I'm a very active person, so finding quality athletic clothes is important to me. I was really disappointed by the quality of these leggings. They appear to be defective. The stitching is poor: there are loose threads in the stitching, some crooked stitching, and places where the fabric doesn't come together cleanly. The fabric has some weird stretching in spots, and when I stretch the pant in these places where the fabric gets funky, there is a dark streak in the fabric. It appears that this was a defective pair of pants. I would speculate the prAna has passed some of their poorly manufactured items to discount sites like this. I don't know how these could MSRP for $89 with these quality problems. If that's the case, I'd hope there would be more transparency in the product's potential defects. If that's not the case, then prAna is really way too hyped up.

I will probably hold onto these because I don't want to have to deal with returning the item and paying for the return shipping. At least all of the other items I've purchased from Sierra Trading Post have been good quality, so I'm generally satisfied with the site.

Oh well. I guess I should stick away from these overpriced brands.
