    Stay cool, literally.

    A favorite among climbers and yogis alike, the prAna Men's Mojo Short brings big-time comfort to complement your balanced chi. The lightweight polyester fabric wicks moisture when you break a sweat, and it dries quickly after a quick dip in a cool mountain stream. Mesh-lined pockets reduce weight and increase ventilation, while the soft-brushed waistband offers all-day comfort.

    Just the best

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

    If you've ever owned Patagonia Baggie Shorts, I know you're thinking you've found the best shorts in existence. I'd be willing to bet my bottom dollar that the Mojos will swoop that title in a heart beat.

    Love These!

    I run in these shorts, mountain bike in them, walk in them, hike in them, go to the gym in them, I do everything in them. I have three pairs! They are just the best, everyone will tell you, I am endorsed by friends who are big, really big. Just buy a pair already. -Endorsed by Donald Trump (No really, they are pretty sweet!)

    Everyone Should Own a Pair.

    These are my favorite shorts I have ever owned. They are durable comfortable and looks pretty good. If you wear shorts you should wear these.

    Let me tell you about these shorts...

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

    They are awesome, seriously. I love the elastic band and fit. I’m 6’2, about 200lbs and the L size are a perfect fit. The material is durable, light, and breathable. I chose the Classic Blue, and as you can tell from the pictures, they are true to color. They rise above the knee, which is what I prefer for trail running and hiking. I really like how curved the front pockets are! Anyone who actually utilizes their pockets knows how frustrating it is to have things constantly falling out when you start setting a pace… not going to happen with these surefire shorts! The only thing I wouldn’t comment on (because I’m just picky) is the horizontal stretch across the thigh. The shorts fit great, but as you can tell, I have tree trunk thighs... so I noticed some restraint while squatting… but nothing that was uncomfortable. Bottom line you ask?! These shorts will perform for you, and will turn into you “go to” shorts for any activity. If you have any questions about them, feel free to shoot me and email! Talking gear is what I do!

    The Most Comfortable Shorts on the PCT

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

    These shorts are absolutely amazing. As a thru-hiker the 2 qualities I have to rave about the most are as follows:
    1. The elastic waistband - this perfectly designed waistband somehow eliminates the lower back chafe common on a thru-hike at the spot where your shorts and hip belt rub together day in and day out while sweating.

    2. They truly are quick-dry. I've been blessed with an amazing weather window on the pct (so far - I just got to Washington so knocking on wood). The worst rain we've had were tiny little drizzles 3 times. Yet each of these times the shorts have gotten soaked from the water on bushes as I walk past and then as soon as I'm clear again it won't be more than 30min before I can feel them getting noticeably dryer again. They also double as an awesome bathing suit for the much needed lake R&R during lunch breaks.

    I am in love with these shorts and will probably own a few pair just to wear around the house as well as hike and climb in once I'm done.

    Awesome for hiking and climbing

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

    Shorts are perfect and quick drying as well. The length is perfect, just above the knee, but the waist does fit a little wider than I would like. I wear a 31 waist and the medium is just a little too big. I wouldn't go a size down but the medium are a little too big.

    Pretty good

    • Fit: True to size

    These are my go-to shorts for a lot of activities. Overall, they work well. My only wish is that they had a gusseted crotch. Prana puts gussets on a lot of different shorts and I'm not sure why they didn't for this model. Hopefully in the future they add that design. Until then, I'll keep using the ones I have.

    My Mojo!

    • Size Bought: XS

    Jeez I love these shorts. I have several pairs and they are my go-to's for swimming, hiking, and just hanging around. The fit and quality are both great. I have a 29-30" waist and the XS fits perfectly.

    My New Go-To

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

    I bought my first pair in the spring and just got my second pair. These are easily the most versatile shorts I have. I can use these shorts daily, hence the second pair.... The tough and light material lends its self well to hiking, climbing, and just plain bummin' around. They even dry fast after a dip. I use the small size as the medium felt a little loose,usually a 31 waist. If you are looking for a new go-to, you've found it.

    My favorite shorts

    These are the best shorts around. The waist band is super comfortable, the material is durable and they look great. I recommend them to everyone. If you have any questions about these or any gear on the site, feel free to contact me directly.

    Killer Shorts!

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

    These shorts are a great all around option. I personally have used these from everything from leisurely strolls on the beach to intense workouts. They fit true to size and are super breathable! If you have additional questions please feel free to reach out to me directly.

    I love these shorts!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I wear them all the time. Chilling at home, climbing at the gym, back packing, swimming, music festivals, hiking, everything.

    I am 6'2" weigh 190 lbs and have a 33 waist and a good day. The large fits great.

    Unfortunate sizing change

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I've owned 4 or 5 pair of these shorts and love 'em for hiking and trail running, especially in warm weather. Recently ordered new ones in the medium size I've always worn, but apparently Prana changed the sizing and cut because the waist was too big. Exchanged them for smalls and was disappointed again because the length of the waistband to crotch is too short and tight. Now my favorite outdoor shorts are unavailable to me due to sizing changes. When I called customer service for the exchange, the person I talked to said she'd been hearing complaints from people about the sizing changes, so it's not just me.

    Terrible Re-design

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

    I very write reviews that are this strongly worded. I have never been more off put by the re-design of any item as I was this one.

    Don't bother with these. These shorts have shortened about 2 inches in each size. The waistband, as all other have said, has cheapened in quality. I won't speculate as to why this is but I've heard rumors of an acquisition of the company by a larger outdoor retailer. Clothes are made to fit. Just because a fabric is suitable for active use, doesn't mean the product has all the requisite qualities to be best in its class. I agree with the fact that these tend to actually run a bit larger than they used to in the waist, and shorter in the legs. The XS literally barely made it mid-way down my thigh.

    If you're going to buy a company, don't change one of their most popular offerings. Very, very disappointed.

    Amazing short, odd sizing.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XS

    For years these have been my go-to short, they are comfortable, quick-drying, and versatile. I wear them from the climbing gym, to the pool afterwards, and then downtown to end the day. However, somewhere along the line prAna changed up the sizing and it is all wacked out now. I originally wore a medium, but now I'd down to XS and they are much shorter, which is disappointing. The change in sizing didn't detract from the overall versatility of the short, but it did make it more of hassle to fit and size.

    Don't let the sizing get you down, these shorts are well worth it because you can do anything in them! I would still highly recommend them.

    Obesity Sizing

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: M and L

    These used to be my favorite shorts, hands-down. I'm an avid climber and these were pretty much the only shorts I ever wore climbing. I've owned several pairs, all in size Large, purchased a few years ago. My waist is 31" so in terms of waist size, a Medium may have suited me better. However, the elastic waist on the Large fit me just fine and I preferred its longer length (I'm not a "short shorts" kind of guy).

    Fast forward to this year when I decide it's time to get some new Mojo shorts. I have a bunch of these shorts in Large that I love so I should just order them in Large, right? Wrong. The Larges were huge - they'd literally almost fall off me if I simply moved around a bit.

    So I decide to order a Medium, and while those don't fall off, they still fit too loosely. The last thing I want to be thinking about while working my project is whether my shorts are going to stay on. To make things worse, the length is much shorter than it used to be. In this new sizing paradigm, my waist size probably warrants a Small, but given that the length on a Medium is already too short, I see no point in trying a Small.

    It's super disappointing that a brand like Prana would succumb to such egregious vanity/obesity sizing. Seriously, Prana, have you ever seen a halfway serious climber who is obese? I'm actually more built than your average climber (I like to lift weights, what can I say?) and if a Medium is too big for me, something's wrong.

    Prana has clearly strayed far from their roots and have lost me as a customer. I was initially going to give these shorts one star, but they admittedly are not quite deserving of the "straight up sucks" requirement that one star represents. I'm thus giving these shorts two stars as they are definitely NOT RECOMMENDED.

    Use for EVERYTHING

    • Size Bought: medium

    I purchased these shorts as a gift but have received amazing feedback on quality and functionality. He wears these for all types of activities and always is satisfied. Fit runs just a little small. He will definitely have multiple colors in his closet by the end of summer.

    Yogi

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

    I bought these shorts as a gift but I have a review to share.
    "I wanted these to use exclusively for hot yoga and they perform exceptionally better than a regular pair of gym shorts. The material is similar to that of a swimsuit and therefore seems to be able to handle to major amounts of sweat and moisture better than normal gym shorts. The Mixology Gravel is awesome and due to the pockets I could wear these shorts on a daily basis if needed. I am a 5'11" male, 180 lbs, with about a 32 inch waist and the Medium fit great. The only small issue I have with these shorts is that the groin region of the shorts gets a little tight during certain yoga poses."

    Use it for everything

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

    Got these on sale with some funky design and they turned to my most used shorts. Take them to yoga, climb, bed, and gym. They are breathable, light and have stood up so far. Only thing could have made it better was the fit or maybe some stretch material, the waist band is great but it feels close to the crotch and without stretch on the legs material. Or maybe I just have big legs from biking. Still use it everywhere and get compliments on the design.

    Looks like a cool concept, but...any reports on that waistband? Looks like what I'd use for underwear. With no apparent belt provision, that better be one heavy duty elastic there.

    Best Answer

    The waistband is nice and rather wide so if will hold your shorts up if that is what you are concerned with. Due to it being elastic if you fill the pockets with rocks you may be sporting some crack or lose them completely.... I have bought several of these for the guys in my life and they are all really stoked on them.

    Heard great things about these. Sad to find out that the smallest size, XS, is made for a 30 in. waist. Wish I could buy a pair for a 28 in. waist.

    How secure is the elastic waistband?



    Has anyone had these fall off when bodysurfing, diving, swimming a rapid etc..?

    My husband has two pairs of these that he uses for climbing and swimming. He's never had them come off while diving or swimming a class II-III rapid. I don't think he's ever body-surfed in them though. These are his favorite shorts.

    What type of material is this, is it...

    What type of material is this, is it stretchy?

    The material is a 100% lightweight polyester microfiber with mesh lined pockets. In addition to the plush elastic waistband, the shorts themselves also have some stretch. Many people like their soft feel against the skin, versatility and range of motion.

    I wear a size 29 jean/pant. Should I go with the small? I'm a pretty skinny guy. 5'7" 130.

    I am nervous. I always wear a 32. I ordered the Medium stretch zion pants and I loved them so much I ripped the tags off and wore them, but now regret it. I have like an inch and a half between me and the pant when pulled. The tab holds them up though. SO my thoughts. Do they run big or small? Mixed reviews here..

    I am not sure if you are asking about the Stretch Zion in your post or the Mojo short that this post is attached to. The Stretch Zion seem to run a little bigger, I wear a 30/32 jean and I fit in a small St. Zion. As for the mojo I would definitely size up. I wear a medium in the mojo and I like the way they fit.

    Cannot tell - do these have a mesh liner?...

    Cannot tell - do these have a mesh liner? If not, suggestions of a brand that might?

    Does the waist band stretch out over time?...

    Does the waist band stretch out over time? I'm deciding between a large and extra large, both of which fit and stay up, but I'm worried the extra large will stretch over time and not stay up as well.

    Will Backcountry be getting these shorts...

    Will Backcountry be getting these shorts in other sizes (smalls and mediums) any time soon? I'd rather get them here than anywhere else, you know. Thanks in advance!

    Do these have a drawstring or anything to...

    Do these have a drawstring or anything to stop them from coming off when you dive in the water? If not any other suggestions for a do it all short that would work in this setting (hiking, climbing, swim/surf)? Thanks!

    Best Answer

    Nope, gotta put your faith in the elastic band on these puppies..so if you want to wear them on land and sea they'll be great..if you dive however, well I just don't recommend doing that in these, unless you're going for the exhibitionist look when you emerge from the depths..sans Mojo shorts. For something like that you might be better off w the Stretch Zion, a cotton blend that will still dry pretty quick. Take a look:
