Colors seem a little off

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 6' 1"
    Weight: 170 lbs
    Size Purchased: Small

Thought the "Pineneedle" would be a lighter green with more white highlights, but really is a pretty dark green. I returned them and got the "Black" instead which is really just a nice dark gray.

I'm a 31" waist and size Small fits great (would have ordered a Medium if I didn't read other reviews).

Light and Durable

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

I normally wear a medium but small fits perfectly as I like my yoga clothes slim fitting. These shorts are constructed beautifully with hemp blend that makes the short pop in a subtle way. I use these as sleepwear as well.

My favorite shorts!

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

These are the best shorts I own! I bought them for yoga, but soon I was wearing them for climbing, lounging, anything! They are lightweight and very comfortable, offer completely unrestricted motion, and look pretty great. Thinking of ordering another pair!
Make sure to check the sizing chart, I normally would order S but should have ordered XS; it doesn't really matter because they have the drawstring.

Great yoga shorts

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

Prana makes the best yoga clothes, and these shorts are no exception. Really comfy, with lightweight yet kind of stretchy material. I've used it for both vinyasa and yin practice, worn them to work and to just lounge around. I also have a pair of the sutra pants, which I also highly recommend.

A size medium has an 11" inseam, and that will vary slightly if you buy a larger or smaller size.

Prana Yoga shorts

Another Great pair of shorts in my Prana collection. A nice alternative to the synthetic Mojos.
I got the Medium ( I am about a 31" waist) and they fit great. The Tie waist has Not come off no matter how many Sun Salutations and Downward Dogs i do.

The most amazing shorts out there. Super lightweight great for chilling on the beach or climbing! Super mellow tie around the waist which makes them comfortable beyond belief. I am a bigger guy and was actually shocked these shorts fit comfortably.

Silky Smooth for Yoga Studio

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

These are made for yoga: they do not have any zippers, buttons, thickly stitched areas to interrupt your flow or prevent you from connecting with the floor. There is no zipper-fly or fly of any kind (NO button closure as listed under specs), and shallow pockets, so be aware of these characterisitics when making your decision. The drawstring for the waist is all you're using to keep these shorts up, so make sure to buy a size that'll fit you snugly without extra room; you won't need it.

The color and appearance is a sleek, modern, simple approach that'll have you staying centered and focused both in and out of the studio.

Love 'em!

The material used in these is perfect for summer. It's lightweight, breathable and moves with you. The only thing that really surprised me was the sizing. I'm normally a medium in almost everything. I have a 31" waist, and went with medium here.
I ended up exchanging them for a small, and even those had more room in the waist than I was expecting. They have a draw string though, and the lack of fly requires them to be a little bigger to get in/out, so they're perfect.

Great Shorts

I love the Sutra pants so I decided to get some of the shorts. Light, stretchy and super comfortable.

Nice Shorts!

nice shorts minus the sizing chart is off. I am a 33 and the large was 4 inches to big. Mislabeled as well, because the crotch does not have a zipper. Backcountry has a problem with selling gear that is mislabeled. otherwise a nice pair of shorts.
