Best shorts ever!

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

I bought a pair of these over a year ago and they are my favorite. I just bought another pair in a different color. They are stretchy, comfy and wear like iron. I don't think they will ever wear out....at least I hope not.

The real deal

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

I bought 2 pairs of the larges and they are killer. I've hiked, climbed, traveled, etc. in them and they've held up amazingly.

I'm 5'11" and usually wear 32s. The fit on the waist is a bit large and they're a bit longer and baggier than I prefer. Luckily they're adjustable. I'd probably try the mediums time. They have tons of great features.

Just one negative I can think of. The bottom pocket has a top zipper and side zipper to access the same pocket. I've lost things by not realizing the side zipper was open. Maybe it's useful for climbing or some situations but overall I'd say the side zipper is unnecessary.

Good all-around outdoors shorts

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

Bought these on sale on an impulse and never looked back. If I pack one pair of shorts, these are it. I've worn them on week-long backpacking trips, at the crag and at the gym, these shorts seem to do it all. Great for climbing , hiking and backpacking. They are very breathable, dry quickly, have a nice range of motion and don't smell (too bad) after a week without wash.
Zippered pockets mean you don't have to worry about dropping anything while three pitches up, but I've never needed to use the side zipper of the cargo pocket. The cinch-belt is nice, but tends to need readjustment, and I broke the rear belt loop using it to attach my chalk bag.
All in all, good shorts for multiple activities, but not perfect. Definitely pick them up if they are on sale, but $70 for a pair of shorts?

BEST.DAMN.SHORTS.EVER

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

These are solid shorts, buy them, don't ask questions....
Need I say more?

I have put these things through the ringer. From Zion to Moab to Jackson to Glacier and to the bar in back. They are comfy, durable, fit great with a bit of stretch, and stylish. I honestly don't know what else you need in a pair of shorts.

Where it is at!

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

Love these shorts. No longer do I need to deal with the gaggle of belt/harness/short clash. You know, tighten the harness, belt becomes loose, pants don't fit quite right. With these, not a problem. In addition, the material of the shorts is super stretchy. Comfortable for so much more than climbing.

Great Shorts

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

Got these for my trip to Costa Rica Knowing that it was going to be very warm. Can I tell you, these shorts felt great.

Top Notch Shorts!

The prAna Stretch Zion Short have become my favorite shorts. I am not a fan of overly short or long shorts and these prAna Stretch Zion Short are right in the middle. Coming down just slightly past the knees, they are perfect. Upon putting them on you will notice a high amount of mobility versus other shorts and a cool little waist tightener on the side. I have concealed carried in these prAna Stretch Zion Shorts and the best part is they stretch so they expand as needed in that situation. I do not hike or backpack in shorts, but they do make a long pant version of these shorts which I would certainly be using as I use another pRana pant for backpacking (The Bronson Pant, previously reviewed).

The simple design and layout adds to this prAna Stretch Zion Short. Having a hidden pocket here and there helps. The rear pockets have always held my wallet and papers in nicely, and I have really come to love the stretch over normal shorts. They look awesome, feel awesome and ride awesome. True to size for the most part on the sizing side of things. The only thing I have seen is some wear on the belt loops, I would like to see some upgraded material for those, but I have used my 1.75" tactical belts plenty of times over the last few months and cannot complain. I would suggest the price come down some, as these are around $68 and I do not see many places with cheaper prices. So I would wait until they are on clearance and clean them out!

I have seen barely any wear on this short, minus the belt loops. They look just the same as they did prior the my 50 times wearing them and multiple laundry trips. Color is still strong and the construction in place. These look like they will last a long time, and I look forward to them doing just that.

My go to shorts

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

These shorts are absolutely fantastic! Lightweight, good pockets, nice stretch, great for hiking, and can even double for swim trunks in a pinch.

The built in belt is a nice touch and handy since i think these run a bit large. I typically wear 32/33 inch waist pants and purchased the mediums. At this size, the belt is cinched 1/2 - 3/4 of the way. The legs feel right though, so i wouldn't go any smaller.

Best shorts

Best shorts I have ever owned. Comfortable. Buy them. Look good & are super comfortable.

Favorite shorts!

Super comfortable and great for climbing/hiking/traveling/lounging.

Nice, sturdy.

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

My husband always wears a 32 in prana. I got him the medium and he says they fit well. They are a really strong but stretchy fabric. They are generous in length, which is good for going through brush. If you need a super durable short, the fabric is definitely tough.

Perfect "go to" shorts

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

These stretch just a little with movement, and have quickly become my "go to" weekend shorts. Very, very comfortable, great pocket locations, soft materials that are holding up.

The BEST!

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

These are my husband's absolute favorite shorts. He has two pairs and wears them for climbing/hiking/traveling/lounging. They have the perfect amount of stretch for a good range of motion and they look good too.

Large Waist Size

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

I have a true 30 waist size and my prAna Zion pants in size small are a little loose, but wearable, I bought the shorts in a size small and they are at least an inch wider than the pants I currently have. I would guess they are a 32 inch waist. Sadly I'll be returning these and be looking for them in size XS if I can find that. My prAna Zion pants are my favorite for climbing in and I want to wear them all the time. I know the shorts will be amazing, but sad that I have to find a different size than the pants. Luckily, Backcountry has a great return policy.

Favorite Shorts Ever!

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

These shorts and the stretch zion pants are bomb proof and the most comfortable shorts I have ever owned. I use them all the time for all kinds of activities and of course for lounging.

Simply awesome

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

If you are looking for a great outdoor pair of shorts these might just be for you. The stretch fabric makes them ideal for hiking or climbing. The range of movement in these shorts is awesome, so mantling over the top of that boulder problem won't be a problem. I love the feel of the material which is more supple than many of the nylon shorts I have tried, while the spandex provides the added stretch. These shorts are also a favorite of mine when traveling since they tend to not wrinkle very easily. These shorts are great for hot humid areas where cotton just seems to never dry out. I recommend these shorts to anyone looking for a pair of shorts you can wear from the outdoors right into the pub for some cold suds.
For a size comparison I am 5'10" and weight 165 lbs. My waist is a 34 and the large fits well. I should still have some room to grow in these if needed.

Boyfriend Approved

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

So I got these as a gift for my amazingly talented boyfriend Pictured below (Grant Kates) and he loves them. He loved them so much he bought them in two other colors just so he could wear a pair when the others are being washed. It's rather hilarious! He loves how light and breathable they are. Also how much stretch they have to allow better movement while climbing. They look great for causal events and for outdoor activities. They are truly a diverse pair of shorts and I think they are a perfect gift for any outdoorsy guy! He's a 32 waist and the size Small fits him perfect.

Amazing product

Amazing product

These shorts are the first prAna item I have owned and will not be the last. They are comfortable, breathable and fit excellent. My waist size is 32 and I got the small. They are light weight and fit well even with a climbing harness on. I climbed 9 hours on Memorial Day and had a harness on the entire time while remaining comfortable.

Love them!!

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

Bought these shorts for causal wear and I love them!! They are comfortable, stretchy, and move great. Totally worth the money.

I am 5'10" with about a 31" waist and a small fits great. A little room in the waist and hits me right at the knee.

Just like the Stretch Zion Pant

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

These shorts feel just like the Stretch Zion Pant without the extra fabric. I have these, the Stretch Zion Pant and the Knickers and I am happy with how the thigh pockets are designed on these shorts. They have side access zips so you can easily access your gear while sitting in a harness. Highly recommended, very comfortable!
