The attack pants are a little heavier than the prana zion. I really like the kuiu tiburon for mild-warm weather and they are more comparable to the prana pants.
The attack pant material is slightly heavier and probably a bit more durable - more of an all-around mid-weight. They have a great anatomical fit, flex well. In addition they have zippered hip vents which are priceless for dumping heat while climbing. I also have and love the Prana Stretch Zions which I love for early season hunts but feel the Attack Pants are better for varied conditions and mountain hunting.
Can't compare to those, but the Attacks were my first Kuiu purchase and since then I've bought the Peloton 118 tshirt, Peloton 240 hoodie, Guide Jacket, Ultra Merino Pro 200 zip T, Attack gloves, and a few accessories for the bino harness that I bought off the classifieds. And just ordered the zip off Peloton 97 pants which rounds the kit out for now. Each piece has been great, and I wouldn't have ordered more if the pants didn't exceed my expectations for fit, comfort, DWR, and durability. Can't go wrong
They're a helluva lot better than the Prana Stretch pants. I'll never buy the Pranas again. The other Kuiu clothing I tried fit funny and I didn't like it. The other clothing was a Peloton 1/4 zip and the zipoff baselayers. The baselayers are great on paper, but didn't fit right.
I think you’re right. My issue is the waist vs calf sizing, almost like the calves are a size smaller than the waist. However your typical waist band has about 10” of play and no zippers.They fit slightly odd for me, but nothing I don't get used to. I attributed the fit to the zipper...zippers don't stretch or bend well.
Based off of this, both versions appear to be crap. The synthetic version is too loose in the waist, too tight in the thighs, and too loose in the calves for me.Zip off base layers are the only item I would consider from kuiu. Be advised the merino is a looser fit similar to wearing mc hammer pants with shit in your drawers. The peloton fits like a next to skin base layer is expected. I really hope FL or another high(er) end seller steps up to the plate and makes zip off bottoms similar to kuiu. Total game changer and my favorite piece of gear .

Thanks for the heads up. I'll stay away from the merino version, too.
