Toughest pants ever owned! Super abrasion resistant, still look great after several years of serious abuse!!!

32 Long fits great for 5'10"/160lbs.


  • Abrasion resistant
  • Comfortable
  • Waistline works well with hip belts


  • A little pricey

I simply cannot wear these pants out! I think it was 4+ years ago I bought these, and the stitching is still holding tight everywhere! I like climbing gear for backpacking due to its abrasion resistance, and this pair of pants is the single reason I support Mountain Hardwear products. I would estimate these pants have been worn a hundred times, and gone on several dozen backcountry trips and day hikes. I realistically expect these pants to last another 4+ years before they start getting ratty.

These pants are a 32" Long, and fit well. I do roll them up one hem when wearing under raingear. The waistline and pockets have a very soft inner lining. These are very durable pants, nothing wearing out after years (machine wash/air dry). These pants are resistant to water, but I'm certain would soak in a downpour. They are pretty breathable pant that I would not consider quick-dry. A medium weight pair of long johns underneath is sufficient in cold weather. If its wet also, my eVent rain pants finish the system. 

These pants are a version (or two) old comparing to the MH website; these have standard front and back pockets, with a deep side pocket on one leg. 95% Nylon, 5% Elastane material makes for a stretchy (but loose fit) that wicks well. The MH reflective logos are wearing, but that's it. I would put these pants on par with anything on the market at double the price-point.

Here's what other sites are saying:

Mountain Hardwear's Piero Pants are worth buying in two colors. Versatile, durable against rock and brush and made with stretch fabric for movement for climbing, hiking or just about anything else you can do outside.


The Mountain Hardwear Piero pants are built to take on climbing adventures with their tough-yet-supple canvas fabric. A touch of elastane adds a comfortable amount of stretch.


After it was introduced to the outdoor community, the popularity of the Men's Piero Pant spread like wildfire. Mountain Hardwear has since updated the style to bring this pant in a little closer to the body for a cleaner fit, but don't worry, you won't sacrifice any mobility when you're scrambling over rocks or 'packing the Long Trail.
