    Fantastic company to purchase clothing.

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit:True to size

    Have purchased this brand before for my husband, and will continue to buy because quality and price are a great value. Not able to find shorts locally this time of year, Backcountry promptly shipped them. Five stars for a easy transaction.

    Comfortable shorts for work or play

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs small
    • Size Bought: 34

    These shorts fit thinner people well and have great stretchy fabric. They are little snug but move well. Great for climbing or the office. Pockets are snug. Tend to wrinkle in the dryer.

    Feel Great

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 32 & 34

    I've had these for over 1 year now. As others have said, they feel great against your skin - soft, but plenty of durability too. I love all the pockets - especially the smaller one along your right leg. This has been my go-to phone pocket to de-clutter my hand pockets.

    I have pairs in both Dark Khaki and Cargo Green - both of which are true in color to their online pictures. I am normally a 32 waist & have a pair in a 32 and a pair in a 34. Both fit well and provide enough coverage for my 36 inseam legs. Overall, a great purchase. If you're in the market for new shorts, definitely consider these.

    Great fit, comfy stretch

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 32

    As shorts go these will carry you far!. They feel as good as they look...and they look great. Thanks P for what you do!

    Comfy and Durable!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size

    These things are money! They are the best of both worlds. The material is very soft and comfortable. They are also extremely durable. I have just used them a few times but I am sure these will last for a very long time.

    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 33

    I've been looking for a new pair of climbing shorts over the last week. I've been to all of the major outdoor retailers in my area and literally tried on almost 2 dozen pairs of different shorts. Finally I tried the Bronson and found the trifecta. Fit, style and freedom of movement. I'm actually wearing them as I'm writing this review. :-) I already know they're going to be my favorite "everything" short. Climbing, biking, going out, etc. Thanks Prana! Also Backcountry for the great prices!

    Jewel of the Nile

    Good quality but fit poorly

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I purchased these as well as the prAna Zions short having never purchased anything from prAna. Ultimately they'll be for hiking but my first experience with them has been to wear them around town.

    The quality is great. The only issue I had with them is the fit to my particular body type. I'm 6'2", 190 and ordered a Large. On initial wearing they fit well at the waist but were a little tight through the hips. The flex of the shorts are great but they have started riding up in casual motion.

    I've returned these shorts and ordered another pair of the prAna Zions short which fit much more comfortably for my build.

    A fine pair of shorts

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size

    They feel great and wear great. They got good elasticity to them and move with you not against you. I'm a size 32-33 waist and got the 33's and depending on the day I usually go with a belt to keep them where I want them. A 32 would have been perfect, but no complaints, they are a quality pair of shorts, well made and solidly stitched.

    Durable, soft, and classy.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    The Prana Men's Bronson Short is strong for rock climbing, soft for casual days, and stylish for just about any occasion. I've taken it up offwidths without a tear, on the sofa for a comfy nap, and to bars for a lot of nice compliments. I guess you just can't go wrong with triple-reinforced organic cotton.

    Perfect for just about everything.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    Just picked up my second pair of these, and I know they will be my go to short from now on. Not too long, not too baggy, with a true to size fit ( I got these in my normal 34 waist and wear them without a belt ). Classy enough for dinners and outings ( looks awesome with a button up ), and rugged and enough stretch for a day of climbing. Prana is slowly taking over my whole wardrobe. They do it right.

    they run big

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs large

    I'm a 33 waist 99% of the time. I need a belt with these. Not important enough to return, but to order again I'd get a 32.



    Otherwise, love em.

    Good Shorts... But Rivets Will Scratch

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    The Bronson shorts are one of my favorite pairs of casual shorts. Like most Prana products, they are very durable, have a bit of stretch to the fabric and intelligently-placed pockets. My one complaint about them is the riveting on the seat of the pants. As you can see in the detail pictures above, there are small metal rivets on both sides of the back pockets. *Be careful: these rivets will scratch chairs and leather seats. I have matching gashes in my wood dining room chairs from scooting back.

    My favorite pair of shorts!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    First the fit is awesome, not too baggy, not too tight and they fit comfortably around the waist. The fabric is durable but remaining very supple and lightweight enough to wear without a belt. The pockets are deep and will hold your essentials safely while hiking or climbing about. I wear these every day!

    • Fit:True to size

    Just an FYI.



    Also, these shorts have a really solid button (not a snap) for securing the waist. Also, the stretch in these and the length make them great for hiking and messing around on rock. When you're not out in the great outdoors, their smart and clean presentation will make them suitable for a first date, family party, etc..

    Im 5'10' & 135lbs. How is the sizing.? I got some Patagonis shorts in 28 and the fit good. Should I go with the 28 or the 30 with a belt.?

    thanks, jah bless..!

    Best Answer

    I usually like to go with a belt, that said Prana pants I find tend to be pretty true to size, even a bit large. I'm a size 34 and I fit into the medium which is supposed to be for a 32 - 33 inch waist. Prana also makes shorts that stretch like the Zion (which i love). The good thing about that short is that it already has an integrated belt that you can cinch down

    Prana lists these as 98% cotton / 2%...

    Prana lists these as 98% cotton / 2% spandex. But this site says they are 100% cotton. Just wondering which one is correct. I have some older ones that are the 100% cotton, but I like the newer ones with a little spandex in them. Don't want to order the older version.

    can you tell me what the inseam is on this...
