    You can't climb everyday, or can you?

    The prAna Stretch Zion Men's Short would prefer to spend the summer hiking and climbing, but like you, it'll tolerate a few down days in the city. It's four-way stretch fabric delivers mobility and quick-drying comfort, while abrasion-resistant nylon withstands the abuse the comes with long rocky scrambles and brushy approaches through brambles.

    Great short!

      Super comfy to wear. Great stretch which helps since they are on the long side. Mine hit me about the middle of the knee and can sometimes get caught on my knee. They vent great and are fantastic when it's hot out! Would like to see another cargo pocket...

      Simply awesome

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

      I've been wearing these shorts for years now. Though I have swayed from the Prana Stretch shorts I always come back. Why? I like being comfortable.

      These shorts offer the right amount of stretch. They breath well on hot days and they are super durable. I typically get a few years of use out of a pair. Also, if you're use to the old style of sizing I used to wear a large in these and the 34 fits the same as the old large.

      There can be only one

        These are the only shorts I need. Stretchy, comfortable, and they come in a bunch of colors so you can even pull off a business casual vibe for work before burning up a crag afterwards. Five stars aren't enough for these things.

        A New Staple in Dad's Wardrobe

        • Size Bought: 38

        I snagged a pair of these shorts for my dad's birthday, and he immediately asked for the link to the page so he could purchase several more colors. These shorts are ridiculously breathable, stretchy, simple, and comfortable without the bulk (or dweebiness) of some cargo-esque shorts. He's 6'4", 190lbs, and has a 38" waist. The 38 in these shorts fit him perfectly and were a good length. He hikes, bikes, and rolls around town in these shorts, and they'd be fabulous for climbing if I can manage to drag the poor guy out to the crag with me. Treat Dad (or yourself!) to a pair of these for Father's Day!

        Love the comfort

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: 35

        I have a few prAna products and love them all. All their products stretch in all directions like no pants/shorts I've worn before (even the jeans) so their are ridiculously comfortable for bike riding (which I do a lot of) and just for lounging around (which I need to do more of).

        Bought these for my husband

          I bought the mud color for my husband as a gift and he loves them. He has yet to climb in them as they just arrived yesterday, but we're going this weekend and I'm sure they'll be great. I love the color on him too.

          The Climbing Shorts you NEED!

          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: Large

          Shorts fit very well - not too baggy, not too tight. Stretch is minimal but definitely aids in comfort and is not restricting. Great Pants! Highly recommended!

          Best shorts ever !

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Size Bought: Medium

          I own four pair of these shorts and three pair of zion pants. This is the most comfortable, versatile and durable pair of shorts I have ever owned. The cut is slightly slim from what I am used to but the stretch makes up for it. I love the cargo pocket on the side, unless you love sitting on your wallet, it is very handy. I honestly cant believe that there are reviews recommending prana ditch the cargo pocket, that would be terrible. I have swam, hiked , biked, camped and also worn them out to dinner. My only complaint that I could come up with is that the exposed stiching on the exterior of the pants has broken on some of my older pairs after a few years of heavy use. Buy them ! I can't imagine anyone would be disappointed.

          1 year around the world and more.

            Packed as little as possible for a one-year trip around the world and glad these came along. Such great stretch comfort in all conditions and temperatures and withstood plenty of abuse when wet and dry - all with passport securely stashed in the cargo pocket. Still in great shape now that I'm wearing them at one in Utah again, although still finding some red Cambodian dirt in the pockets. Oneworldoneyear dot com.

            What a find!

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

            Will never wear another pair of shorts but I agree with Teresa below me...you have to ditch the cargo look because its no longer 1998 and Jnco jeans are cool anymore either. Sure you can make them with little side pockets with a zipper or something but not the cargo! Even with those I still love them and feel and stretch is amazing.

            Ditch the Cargo!

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

            I ordered these for my boyfriend because he loves his Zion pants so much. They are stretchy and super comfortable. These shorts are perfect for climbing or hiking. The only thing that would make these shorts 5 star is if they had a version with out the cargo pockets

            The best shorts

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times
            • Size Bought: L-32

            Love the shorts. When I'm not wearing the pants I'll have the shorts. Great fit and comfort. Like the pants I have 3 pairs of shorts and looking to buy a couple of more pairs. Highly recommend.

            Always a fan of Prana products

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

            These shorts, like everything else Prana I own, rock! Super comfortable, great stretch for the times your active, and excellent ventilation.

            As with other Prana products I have and love, I recommend trying them on first. Their sizing as a brand seems to vary quite a bit. A size in one style can fit me perfectly, while in another style I need a size larger to even get my thighs through the legs. Other than that, Prana products are great quality and value!

            Will continue to buy!

            I have the Prana Stretch Zion pants (love em) in small and they're still a little big, have to cinch the belt a little. I normally wear 30x30 pants, just wanted to know if the XS shorts would be TOO small. Any ideas?

            Are any of the pockets zippered and if so, which ones? Is the belt removable?

            The left side pocket is zippered (twice, actually, one facing up and one facing front - which is handy depending on if you are sitting or standing). The belt is not removable but it's very small and only shows in the front. Completely unobtrusive.

            Can an iPhone 6 plus fit in the lower leg pocket?

            Can someone help me figure out my size,...

            Can someone help me figure out my size, please? I wear the Prana Axiom jean in size 34 waist and 34 inseam. Some folks say these run large and some say these Zion shorts run small...



            Can someone help me out? Do I need a Medium or a Large?



            Thanks!!

            Kurt. Another Kurt here. I wear the Axiom 34 x 34 and the Theorem 34 x34. I have two pair of the Zion shorts, and both are Large. Fit the same as the 34 x 34 jeans. Measured the waist band with a tape measure, and they were identical +/- 0.25".

            Just received a pair in Medium (my waist measures 33in over my underwear) and they are clearly too big. I can fit 2-3 finger widths in between but I can make them fit with the nifty built in belt. Is it worth exchanging for the a Small? The sizing chart shows a two inch difference in the waist. If it matters the Prana Mojo Mediums I ordered fit me perfectly. Thanks!

            I wear a 28-29 short/jean. Will the small fit me? It's SO hard finding climbing clothing for my size!

            Mrwp269247,

            I know your pain.

            I too have problems not just with climbing clothing, but with basically all clothing, as my waist sits right at that 28-29in mark.

            That being said, I would go with the XS, I think the S would still be a bit too large for your waist, and you would probably have issues with the fit, as well as making them stay on while on the wall.

            I've included a size chart I found on prAna's website, and according to them, you want to take your waist measurement and subtract 2" from that to determine what "prAna size" to get.

            I notice that BC doesn't have any of that size in stock currently, so I would recommend chatting with a gear rep to see if they can find out when they will be receiving more sizes of the XS, if you do decide to go that route.

            Good luck, hope this helps.

            How true to sizing are these? I wear 31's...

            How true to sizing are these? I wear 31's in most shorts/pants. The sizing chart shows S to be 30" whereas M is 32-33". Obviously, I fall in between. Don't want too baggy but I don't want my range of motion restricted either. Any help would be appreciated.

            I wear a size 38" or XL in Kuhl, Outdoor Research,Mountain Hardwear and Patagonia. I just bought a pair of these in XL and although they fit, they're tighter than all others I have. I'm going to exchange for an XXL or more likely O.R. Ferrosi shorts which fit perfectly at XL.
