Excellent Pants! The best pair of all around adventure pant I have. Very durable and water repellant. The stretch feature is great for those weird leg angles when climbing. They still look new after a week on the rock and trails. NOTE ON SIZE. I wear a solid 32 in the waist. The 32" waist that I ordered fits more like a 34" July 11, 2014
Slick. Durable, look good, and what else do you need? Oh ya - super comfortable as spoken by the husband who wears them. Thanks M.H. for making nice looking and functional stuff. June 5, 2014
Greatest work pants ever! Most durable work pants ever. I wear them in the toughest environments and they stand up to it all. March 31, 2014
Best Pants Ever I loved these pants from the moment I put them on. Fit great, and are also the most comfortable pants I own. I work in the apparel business and have access to every manufacturer. I have Columbia, Kuhl, North Face, you name it, but these are far and away the most comfortable and durable pants I own. I mentioned great fit, I have long legs and with most pants after a few washes the length and fit isnt as good as when the pants were new, but not so with the Piero. You will be happy with the Piero pant. March 21, 2014
My Second Pair I like these pants so much I bought a second pair. The Piero is made of a tough stretchy fabric with a loose fit that permits great freedom of movement for most outdoor activities. The zippered side pocket keeps your smart phone or wallet secure. The comfortable "jean style" design also makes them great for casual wear. A good solid pair of pants for exploring the outdoors and the city. March 2, 2014
duable - wind resitstant I used these pants for windy wet days at the beach golfing. Works great to keep you warm and dry with a lot of flexibility. January 23, 2014
Love these pants Fit is slimmer than most tech pants, and material is thicker, great fit and feel. Couldn't find any 32 x 34 in the khaki or I'd have ordered a pair or 2 of those too! January 12, 2014
Way too small I loved the previous pair of pierros you guys made, except when the stitching blew out pre-maturely. You've fixed that with this pair, but now they are way too tight around the thigh and crotch area. They used to be a lot looser - I could roll them up without the cuffs becoming constricting - but now they're almost skin tight and even restrict my movement a bit which is not ideal for a climbing pant. Also the previous generation of leg pocket on the right was a lot better in my opinion. December 31, 2013
Quite Possibly the best pants ever So I am writing this review while wearing my Piero pants. Incredibly comfortable, incredibly stretchy, and also super rugged. I own 2 pairs of these pants, and have put them through the tests. I've slid down scree slopes, gone rock climbing, and even played in the desert. These pants always standup! If i had to say one thing, they do get a bit warm when it's super hot outside (90+) but i'll take sweaty knees over a lesser product any day of the week. November 13, 2013
Great pant I'm a skydiver by trade and jump/ land in all types of conditions due to my work and these pants are unbelievable. Wicks dew and light moisture away very well, warm yet breathable, one of the best all-around pant I have ever owned. You can also where them out on the town. November 13, 2013
Nice balance of style and function. These pants are comfortable, tough, and stylish. I use them on remote canoe trips in the Far North and for outdoor trips in national parks across the US and Canada. Only thing that would improve them is more zippered pockets to keep things secure in the bush or city. November 10, 2013
she ain't what she used to be MHW has changed their country of manufacturing and it shows. Why Why Why change it... These pants (my old pair) haven't failed me yet. I bought two new pair in different colors to add to my collection. However the waist sizing is now way off and is to large. I typically wear 32" waist in Designer jeans and ordered a 32" w in the Piero pants. Well the waist on the new Piero pants are just as large as another pair I own which are 33" waist and were a gift. The Belt loops are now half the width on the older pair which makes me suspect to the durability of these new pants. Whats with the main button snap being so cheesy compared to the original, I hope it doesn't fall off from use. I'm sending these back for 31" waist, I pray that they fit and that they hold up to the same abuse I put my old ones through, otherwise MHW just lost a repeat customer. My old pair have been through a lot, I've worn them through all seasons from +95 degrees to 17 degrees Fahrenheit, they shed rain well enough and I stayed dry when kicking around in the snow. I hope MHW gets it right soon November 8, 2013
Great Pants I just got the pants for my outdoor hiking and climbing adventures. I tried them on and they were so comfortable that I wore them all day and loved them. I even wore them to work the next day with a dress shirt and they looked really nice for work. I love the pants. They do fit a little big but not much. I will be ordering a few more pairs in different colors. October 30, 2013
Great Pants! I normally wear size 34/32. But in these pants i Wear 34/30. I bought the pants to be able to wear to work and have a nice pair of tech pants for hiking or casual wear. I have two pair, one in khaki and one in grey. Good buy, worth the money so far. September 30, 2013
More Piero pants Not my first pair of Piero pants. As usual the quality, fit, and function are great. I've recommended them to friends who continue to buy other colors as well. Had to speak with customer service regarding shipping issues in my area. They were friendly and more than helpful. One suggestion: MHW - make the front pockets on your pants a little deeper. September 30, 2013
Bring it back! i have used piero pants for a few years back now. Recently MHW has change them a bit. I think changing belt loops for weaker ones without chackbag attachment was not a good idea. Material seems a bit different but I yet still have to test it. Pocket modifications and removal of hammer loop were NOT welcome either. Knees reinforcements were great and now are weak. Thanks for your time. September 23, 2013
Piero pants review by ryanb206 So the best thing about these pants are the fit. Im a short dude with even shorter legs and they fit true to size (30-30). The style is basic, the material is comfortable, breathable, and quiet. This is my second pair. If i was made of money I would buy a few more pairs for cold storage. The first pair are a year old and have broken in nicely and stay clean (looking) after 5 or days of wearing them. No complaints. ryanb206 September 18, 2013
Not as heavy duty as expected These are solid pants, and they've been holding up well so far. They are described as "durable canvas" which they are - but - I bought these sight unseen, sort of hoping for a heavy jean/work pant type of material to take a serious beating. That's not what these pants are. They are however excellent climbing pants with a ton of stretch. They also dry off quickly. August 23, 2013
A great all round outdoor pant I have used these for several activities and the pants stack up well. I have put many miles on them from backpacking and summiting peaks to rock climbing and snowshoeing. The fit is true to size. The range of motion, good breathability, slight 4 way stretch and reinforcement in the knees and crotch make them well conditioned for a myriad of activities. I highly recommend this pant if you are looking for a good all around outdoor pant that is adaptable for multi season use August 13, 2013
Sound product, true to its value Second pair of Piero pants I bought. Very functional and prior reviews are accurate. I wear them at work and to relax in. They are very durable. Side pocket useless as its too small and sits at the back end of the pant. But other than that problem, I would buy another pair if the colors choices improve. July 31, 2013
Go anywhere in these pants! I love these pants and I have 2 pair in different colors. I am part of a K9 Search and Rescue team and I wear these pants blasting through thick brush, scraping over rocks, crossing rivers and in the rain without a single issue. They have proven themselves durable and reliable. Even after all that abuse, they still look good enough to wear around the office or out anywhere else for that matter. Great pants and I would like to have another pair and maybe even the shorts version too. They seem to run a little on the large side but that works for me as I enjoy the extra room. Highly Recommended! July 12, 2013
Tough pants I was surprised at how thick the fabric of these pants is. It is very close to denim, but stretches willingly and is exceptionally breathable. It is certainly a heavier fabric; from the moment I put them on I could tell they were down for anything. The weave is so tight that even after washing them a few times, they still repel liquids. The size is big. I wear a 32w and went with a 31 because I intend to wear tights under them, but if I wanted an exact fit, I would have sized down to a 30w. The pockets are lined with the same soft stuff that is around the waist and are pleasing and intuitive to use. The zippered pocket on the right leg was confusing at first, but actually keeps whatever is in it out of the way when you want to high step or even lay down for a sec. Very clever. It seems the rear pockets are sewn in a way as to prevent items from falling out of them in the sitting position. I could just be making this up, but i rode around on a bike with a phone and wallet back there and didn't think twice. The cut of the knee is spot on and below the knee it does seem to open up a bit. I liked this. It feels a bit odd with city shoes, but sits very well over boots. I have had these for a few months now, slid down some choss, sat on some questionable rock and have tried my best to beat them up. Not even a loose thread. They wear well and can take whatever you have in mind. July 5, 2013
Fit of the pants The pants are great in hot weather and just all around good fit. July 3, 2013
great pants!!! These are amazing pants.... my son recommended them- he is a climbing guide and outdoor adventure leader. they look great- even after abuse, fit very well (if you are slim), wash and hang dry very quickly...the type of pant that you literally can travel throughout Europe, climb in, not wash for days and still look good enough to wear in public or at a function. One note of caution...due to the cut and stretchiness, they are sized small. I usually wear a 32 and with these wear a 30 waist. May 22, 2013
Great Climbing Pant I own 2 pair of these pants. After ordering the first I ordered another a year plus later. The style has somewhat changed but the material is still durable and slightly stretchy. Perfect for climbing and allowing total range of motion with your legs without restriction. Heel hook by your ear if you want. My first pair could have been a half inch to an inch longer in the legs, but my second pair is right on. The waist on the second pair is slightly large, but I usually wear a belt so no problem. The second pair also has a different button to close your pants with that I am not a big fan of. It works, but the inside part against your body is a little sharp and I sometimes notice a slight sense of discomfort. Besides these slight problems I think these pants rock and continue wearing them all the time! I am hard on clothing and these pants are continuing to hold up to what I throw at them. I guess the slight amount of stretch keeps them from tearing on rocks? Whatever it is it works! May 12, 2013
Review from a perfectionist I bought these Dec 2012 apparently right after the redesign so they will be just like the ones you would get. First off these are my most favorite pants i have ever owned. And generally i agree with the majority of what everyone else is saying. Order a size smaller waist I am a very particular about what i buy, i have literally been looking for over 3 years for a pair of pants that looked decent but were actually functional. I bought these and wore them everyday for 3 months. Especially the Shark color looks casual if you have a casual shirt or looks dressy if you put a nice shirt on, and thats what i did every day even to nice Christmas work parties etc. The good: -The are functional and Flexible: I have been indoor rock climbing in these you forget you even have pants on. I've also done yoga in them, i dont do Karate anymore but you could deffinetly kick someone in the head easily with out worries of ripping them -They are water resistant: shed a light rain -Front pockets like jeans deep not an issue -Fairly light weight -dry fast The not so good: -do attract hair little more then denim but not horrible -They fit too big around the waist. (i ordered my size 30w32L which i have been for over 10 years and i was swimming in them, i should have returned them but didnt in time, so i just wear a belt and i bought another pair 28wx32L which fit great around the waist but a little snugger around the legs, which is okay makes them look a little dressier) Order a size smaller waist -i want a different color but There other colors are weird, the bone and khaki are too similar and the new stone green looks like washed out and faded, a lighter green then would prefer. -the side pocket is a little weird, its very deep and narrow, like a painters pants but with a zipper. Its too deep for a phone and odd sized for papers. Overall still best pants i've ever owned and happy with them. April 25, 2013
Comfort, performance and good looks Very happy with the durability, look, feel, and function of these pants. I've tried all brands and nothing compares to the total product peformance of the Piero pant......finally April 21, 2013
Great pants, but if it isn't broken... I wear my Piero pants almost every day. This is my 4th pair, but the first since they were updated. I bought this pair because they finally came back in stone green. I really like the new front pockets. They are much deeper and have a notch for a pocket knife with a clip. I'm not a fan of the rivets on the back pockets and I hate the new belt loops. The old belt loops were wider and supported a riggers belt. The new right leg pocket is no better or worse than the old style pockets, but I would have preferred another pocket on the left leg. The new pants run bigger in the waist, but tighter through the seat. The length didn't change, but I had to go down 1" in the waist. That extra inch would have been better served in the pant legs as the cuffs are about 1" too narrow when wearing hiking boots. Overall these are my second favorite pants, right behind the original Pieros. March 27, 2013
Virtually indestructible!! I bought my first pair in February '12. I bet I've worn them 150 days in the last year and wahed them maybe 20 times. The first test I put them through was a weekend of shed hunting in northern MN. I put over 20 miles hiking cross country through some of the nastiest scrub brush, blow downs and pine trees that the BWCA can throw at you. Add to it, it was snowing one day then 50 degrees the next. These pants amazed me. I thought I wrecked them because they were no longer "shark" in color. They were a blend of pine sap, dirt, mud and whatever else I got on them. I washed them up Sunday night and wore them to a business meeting the next day. They looked like brand new. These pants spent 5 straight days 10 miles up in the BWCA during moose season and they NEVER came off. Of course, I washed them and wore them to the office the following week. I just ordered a second pair today (just so I have another color) and I hope the redesign doesn't disappoint. Yup, every time I lay down on a rock or floor, the pockets empty themselves. Annoying, but man oh man, I still love these pants! March 19, 2013
hmmmmm.... The first day I wore them I "lost" a snap/rivet. They seem less durable than my older pair.....We shall see March 6, 2013
One Year in West Africa I bought these pants for my 27 month service as a rural health worker in Ghana. They are ideal for the environment and culture. The Piero pants are stylish enough to wear to meetings with communities and local government, but also rugged enough to stand the test of serious time in the bush. They dry very quick, which is important because all laundry here is done by hand and line dried. During the height of the "hot" season they are a little warm, but not unbearable. I stand 5'7" tall and have around a 30 inch waist. The 30 small fit perfect. I've also tested these pants in Senegal. They are great for West Africa and you will not be disappointed if you grab a pair. March 1, 2013
Piero pant These pants are great and perfect for casual work, hiking, climbing, bending, etc. The stretch in them allows great mobility and if it is a little chilly the lined pockets help to warm your hands up. I purchased 36x30 and it was a good fit. I'm 210lb, 5'10. There is a little play in the waist, but after a good wash and dry they are right where they need to be. Great product. February 17, 2013
Piero Pants are great for work I have three pairs after getting one a month ago. I'm a landscape Architect/Contractor and in the elements every day. They shed water and dirt right off for walking straight into client meetings. Good for every day and the trails. BHM February 15, 2013
Worth the money I bought these expecting to use them for daily indoor use and potentially cross country skiing. They're lightweight, and versatile. I did expect them to be a more canvas-like material, and instead they have a tech-ey feel, closer to ski pants. No complaints! January 15, 2013
Not made like they use to be. The Piero have been a little redesigned since I purchased my first pair. Since their redesign I have noticed they fit larger and are less warm than their previous design. I bought these for a two week trip to Hueco. I did not get to test the durability of the pants since I ended up injuring myself on the first day so my trip. January 5, 2013
Great pants Material is very comfortable and flexible. It does attract hair easily from pets, more than denim, etc. December 18, 2012
An average pant for a company descending to mediocrity Nothing like what they used to be, Mt Hardwear still provides a decent tech pant. However, I still feel that these were built for around town over the back country. Needs better pockets too. All this aside, I'd still buy another pair...at a much discounted price. I measure a 32, but I should have bought a 30 or 31. The inseam is true to measured length. December 12, 2012
Agreed...great pant, pockets are a problem The quality and feel of these pants are ideal. however, like others have mentioned, there are issues with pockets. two side pockets would be great and better designed for activities with gadgets, maps, etc. in mind. Love the fit, love the feel. December 8, 2012
Pockets In today's world of mobile electronics we all need pockets that can hold a smartphone and other EDC items. Please do not limit us to pockets on one leg. Additionally, related to my comment above this is supposed to be an active pant - make the front pockets deeper. I found that sitting made items in my front pockets to fall out. I would not use the front pockets if I planned on doing anything active. November 15, 2012
Great Pant I originally bought a pair of these pants a couple years ago for a backpacking trip across Europe. These pants fit so well and were so comfortable on that first trip! The material is tough like brush pants, yet feels soft and has an unique stretch to them. I am in the design and build business and my daily job takes me into the thick back country of nc on a daily basis. I wear these pants with a dress shirt to meet clients, they look that good, yet they will push their way through the thorns without a scratch (me or the pants). I continued to purchase these pants until I had enough to wear every single day. They are all I wear. The only remark I would make would be about the design change from last years model to this one (the latest as of Nov, 2012), would be that I love that they opened the front pockets to feel more like jeans.....yet the side leg pocket was change to a single zipper and the open pocket was removed. Please MHW bring back the old open leg pocket design with small side zip. That open pocket is perfect for stashing passports, maps, small notebooks! Otherwise these pants are perfect and I will continue to add to my collection. Some more colors would be nice as well! November 8, 2012
Sturdy pant These are great pants for hiking and climbing on chilly days. The fabric is sturdy, warm, and somewhat water repellent. The first time I wore them was a snow hike and I stayed dry and comfortable while moving with no other bottom layers. They will probably be comfortable about 30F-60F. I wear a 31/34 in Levi's, but these pants fit best in a 30/32. They're slightly stretchy. October 28, 2012
Rugged and Comfortable! Great Pants The Piero Pants are great for cool weather hiking, hunting or sporting events. My only complaint is that they only come in two colors..... I have both of these! Thank for making a product that is both rugged and comfortable! October 23, 2012
Why the changes? I have the Pieros from spring 12, and can't say enough about them. They fit absolutely perfectly, and are my favorite pair of pants ever. Unfortunately I only bought one pair. So when I ordered the new Pieros from fall 12, I didn't expect there to be much of a change. I ordered the exact same size as my others, but they fit entirely differently. The crotch is way baggier, and it feels like the pant legs are wider. The deeper pockets might be the only improvement. Other than that, the huge change in measurements is a big disappointment. Sending back for a refund. Swing and a miss, MHW. October 17, 2012
Great Work Pant I have a pair of the 2012 men’s Piero pant in Khaki size 32,32. I am 5,11 and 160lbs. These pants fit great. I’m not a mountain climber, I’m just an average guy that likes to play outside and gets work/projects done. These pants help me do what I do. They are a great canvas pant without the drawbacks of real cotton canvas. Stretch: The fabric looks and feels just like canvas. But it is so much better. When you squat down the fabric stretches. This prevents the bottom of your pant legs from riding up. It also doesn’t rub all the skin off your knees like a canvas pant would Sheds Water: If you spill a glass of water into your lap, no problem, the fabric sheds the water. It literally beads up and runs off. The fabric remains dry and not soaked like canvas would. Breathability: The best part about these pants is that they breathe. If you start to work up a sweat these pants will help reduce the heat and moisture that builds up. Don’t get me wrong, they won’t keep you from getting hot and sweaty but they are way better at breathability than canvas or denim. I own a pair of 2011 Winter Wander pants as well. These Piero pants are not going to be as warm because the fabric is just a bit thinner than the Winter Wander but close. The stretch is about the same and so is the water repellence. I would say that the breathability is about equal as well. Where the Winter Wander pants are more of an outdoor adventure pant, the Piero are more of a work pant in my opinion. I think the Piero pants are going to be a bit more durable than the Winter Wander when it comes to scraps and abrasions. The outside surface of the fabric of the Piero just seems tougher. I’m still looking for Mountain Hardware to make a pant with the same fabric as the Winter Wander that looks just like a pair of khaki Nike golf slacks so I can wear them to the office on cold days. No zippers, no cuff cinches, just khaki slacks suitable for the office with all the benefits of stretch, breathability, and water repellence that comes with Mountain Hardware clothing. The 2011 Winter Wander was close. The 2012 Piero is just too much of a work pant for that. A great work pant! October 9, 2012
The last pant I'll ever buy? I have issues with most pants because of my bulky thighs-- soccer and weight lifting. With the Piero, I don't even know I have the pants on, that's how comfortable they are. Even with the stretch and synthetic material, there is no annoying 'swishing' noise when you walk, and liquid beads right off the pants, so they're perfect for when I'm tending bar, or going hiking in Oregon. To top it off, they are stylish enough to wear basically anywhere (I peg mine, because of the slight bell-bottom cut, but I plan on having them tailored). Can't recommend these pants enough. October 2, 2012
great pant Just the right amount of stretch. Fits great, looks great. Only down side is there a little warm. October 1, 2012
Why should the ladies get all the cool structure? I often complain to my wife women's cloths have cool tailoring while men must be satisfied with sackiness. Mountain Hardware has addressed my grievance. My Piero Pants have tailoring and structure and look good without being in-your-face technical. Would be perfect with two side pockets, one for phone, one for eye glasses. September 23, 2012
I like them, but... I would have liked to give the Pieros four stars but I just couldn't. What is the deal with the pockets?!? They are so shallow that change falls out while you're walking. If you're going to put fake pockets on a men's pant at least give them zippers so that we can actually be "active" without worrying about losing everything when on a hike or worse, on the trail in the middle of nowhere. The shorts have the same issue. C'mon folks, you can do better. August 13, 2012
