Uptown Pant Review: The Ultimate Travel Pant

These pants will make your next long-haul flight that much more comfortable. I’ve worn them now on both a shorter domestic flight from Boston to Florida, and also a red-eye from Boston to London and can attest to their comfort and durability.

Uptown Pant Review

Price and Where to Buy Uptown Pants: Uptown Pant from prAna, available on their website for $89.

How Uptown Pants Rate:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Comfortable clothes for long plane rides are hard to come by, so I was happy to find this pair that’s soft and durable, and their quick-dry material was a plus. The deep pockets are also great for holding your phone and passport during travel.
  • Value: 8/10. While these pants are under $100, $89 is a little more on the expensive side. However, I have found less expensive counterparts to be uncomfortable and itchy, especially when worn for a long period of time.
  • Durability: 10/10. So far these have survived numerous flights for me and the 4-way stretch material is super comfy.
  • Cool Factor: 9/10. The rolled hem and drawstring waist put these on trend, and both the black and grey color options will match almost any top.

Final Verdict: If you’re in the market for some new travel clothes, the Uptown Pant is a great purchase. Its quick-dry material is great for traveling and if you’re hiking or participating in any other activities during your vacation. Whether it’s a short or long haul flight, I always wear these on travel days as they are super comfortable, but still look stylish. Pair with Lucy’s Do Everything Button Down Long Sleeve shirt, for the complete, comfortable travel outfit.
