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!
nope just elastic, but i have the arc'teryx rampart shorts which i use for everything you listed and can have a belt in them unlike these shorts. not to mention but the ramparts are great for swimming cause they dry out way faster than and swimsuit I've ever had and dont limit any movement in climbing
These are my favorite shorts of all-time. Put them on in April and take them off in October. I used them doing everything from trail running rolled up to swimming. The elastic has stayed very tight over the years and the fabric dries very quickly. I'm 5'10'' 150lb and i wear a large. Come to think of it I dont have a green pair yet. Another impulse buy!
These shorts do EVERYTHING. I take em out evertime I go climbing because they're so comfy and you can move around great in them, and after im done climbing I jump in the lake or the local swimming hole and soon after that they're completely dry. Also a very good looking pair of shorts, I take them to school and around town and get alot of complements.

I have a 29/30 waist and I'm about 5'10....
I have a 29/30 waist and I'm about 5'10. I typically go with small for a lot of my clothes, but occasionally a medium fits more comfortably. Should I go with a small for these shorts or will I find them too constrictive? I'd like to use them for climbing/yoga/hiking/everyday kind of stuff. Thanks!
I would say a medium against the small. I am a 32 waist at about 5'11-6'0. I've got two pair of LG and one XL. For me the large is perfect for athletics; they fall just barely shy of mid knee-cap and are not too tight. For lounging the XL is fine - a little longer and baggier, but the waist still works well.
My advice would be to choose between M and LG. I have no doubt that both would fit you just fine, so it would come down to personal taste. Small I'm thinking would be too small.
Great shorts for yoga, climbing, and hanging around! I wear them whenever I can.
I really wanted to like these shorts and as you can see they have a cult following and great reviews. But for someone with a different build than your average outdoor athlete (google Ma'a Nonu) they don't fit as comfortably as they would for a more slender legged person.
With a build like mine there's only so much stretchy fabric can do. Add in the longer inseam and the shorts actually felt quite restrictive as opposed to comfortable.
Something to think about for the larger legged person
I KNOW the shorts are great but just not for me/my build.
best shorts ever... know about 20 climbers who say so also... one dude, only shorts he'll wear anywhere... went to e-rock in texas when it ended up being 100+ and these babies breathe so well... used to do hot power yoga in them also... wore a medium when i was 155 lbs 32 inch waist... now at 180 lbs 34 inch waist a little snug but, can still climb in them... mediums are little short since i'm 6' but, functionally rules in climbing... if you're afraid of them being too short go with the large... BUY THESE!!!
Must... Resist... Austin Powers... Mojo... Joke.....
I have 3 pairs of Mojos. They are *the* goto summer short around Salt Lake City for sport climbing, bouldering, running and sitting around being sore from those activities.
They dry quickly. The butt pocket is the perfect size for stowing your car key and iPod when you're running, but they won't bounce around in there like a slow-motion intro shot of Baywatch babes running on the beach. What?
The material is light, smooth and amazingly tough. For all the times that Andy has started climbing again without telling me and I've dropped the 2 feet onto my butt, they've never ripped or anything. He's a jerk, but these shorts are the bee's knees.
Try them paired with a Red Bull and some Chaco flip-flips. Superb.
Yeah... these shorts are perfect. I have nothing negative to say except for perhaps the price... a little steep - but worth it. I wear these all the time for everything.
Just got a pair
Loved these shorts immediately. Want to buy 2 more pair! Perfect for climbing and yoga. Great fit w/o restricted movement. No more climbing in ratty old shorts
Could be good, depends what you're looking for
I heard a lot of stellar reviews about these shorts, so I figured I better try some. The materials are fine, and I can see why some people love them, but they're not what I thought they would be. I can't imagine getting too hot in them, since the material is so lightweight and airy. But on the flipside, it's really annoying when you put anything in the pockets, because it'll make the shorts swing around and get all out of wack when you move or sit down. I think they may as well not have pockets at all, and I've stopped trying to use them for anything. The other thing I wasn't stoked on is the waistband. Again, I'm sure it's great for some people, such as those wearing a harness, since it's flat and won't dig into you when the harness is on over it. But aside from the harness thing, I think it's just annoying because it makes your underwear/boxers ride up like no man's business.
Light, Airy and Comfortable
These are super comfortable since they are so light and airy. With the elastic waist they never get hung up on your harness either the way a belt sometimes does. I have used mine a ton and they are still going strong!
Shorts are very comfortable and easy to move in. I have a 31 waist and medium is perfect. If climbing is not your thing they transition well to running, hiking and swimming.
I am 6'4" and have a 36 inch waist and the XL fit great in the waist and in length. Great all around short. Lots of mobility, I even use mine for swimming. Get a pair
Best shorts ever (so far)
I bought them cause my other shorts tended to stick to my legs in hot conditions. This dirty phenomena often restricted movement. These shorts weigh nothing and you don't feel them during bouldering. Even in hot, humid weather. I have three pairs now!

This is the end of week 3 since I purchased this product. I use these shorts in the gym. They do not ride-up when I'm on the seated leg press or while doing sit-ups. The fabric and cut are both excellent. I am completely satisfied with these shorts.
At 5'11", 190lbs, and 21% BMI the waist band on the XL feels a little snug. Not uncomfortable, but any tighter and it would bother me. I am a size 34 waist and originally bought the Large size but the waist band was noticeably tight.
Not too shabby
I have had these shorts for 4 years now and I am still wearing them as often as I can. I am 6 feet and 175ish and the large fits me fine. They have kept me cool on long hikes, been comfy while climbing, they don't fall down when swimming, and look good enough to wear around town whenever you feel like it. The shorts are great to have and wear, you won't regret buying these.
Dressed but Naked!
Perfect shorts! Light, airy and very comfortable. The material dries quickly and the waist band wears like an under garment. Nice work!
Just finished wearing these for 5 days straight on the West Coast Trail, and these shorts performed extremely well. The elastic band is the best part, never too tight or too loose, but the fact that it doesn't bite into your hips under your pack's hip belt was a life saver. I'm 5'8", 31" waist and the shorts were down to my knees and fit well enough to hike all day with a camera in the pocket, and swim with at the end of the day.
These are the best climbing shorts ever! Rear pocket, side pockets, gusseted crotch, stretch material, quick dry, Prana craftsmanship...there is no need for any other climbing short. Probably the best short for under a harness too!
