    My Favorite Shorts

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

    I could spend the rest of my life in these things. They fit great and don't impede movement. I plan to own a plethora of them.

    Overall good, a couple annoying things

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

    Overall I'm very happy with these shorts. The material is soft, they fit well and are generally very comfortable. Three relatively minor complaints: (1) I wish they had more of a fly (currently there is none) -- it's currently a bit difficult/awkward to urinate while wearing them, (2) I wish they had a belt loop -- if nothing else to connect my keychain to, and (3) the rear pocket is on the left side but being right handed (as most people are) I always reach back to the right.

    Prana sutra

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Almost perfect. Lightweight, no belt required.
    32 waist = medium.

    My only feedback for Prana would be to add a button or something on the back pocket. If you are going to have a pocket, you might as well make it somewhat secure.

    Love them

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

    Got these as a gift but have feedback. These are a great summer short, light weight and comfortable. They are nice because they are breathable as well. Purchase these in every color if you can! They are a must for summer!

    Comfortable Loungers

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

    I have a pair of these in the pants and have enjoyed wearing them around the house and to bed on cooler nights. They are really comfortable. I bought the shorts hoping that they will be good for the gym, but I have a bit of a reservation - I was trying them on last night and tied them up, but as I was walking around the house with my phone and wallet in my pocket, I had a hard time keeping them up. Maybe I'm just not good at tying them very tight, but the lack of any elastic in the waist may make it difficult at the gym. I am still going to give them a try though and hope that they don't fall off! Either that or I will just have to go a little lighter in the pockets.

    Versatile, lightweight, airy short

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

    The Sutra is spacious and comfortable. These shorts don't have much stretch nor an elastic waistband, but don't necessarily need it. The fabric drawstring is tied like a shoe and gets the job done just fine.

    Feels exactly how it looks, if that makes sense. The fabric feels thin and dry, which is more of an observation than negative descriptors, because these shorts are great. The pant version are exactly the same, just longer.

    Medium fits well on a 33" waist.

    Best shorts you will own!

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

    I purchased these thinking I'd just use them as climbing shorts after reading all the great reviews(they are!) but I ended up getting sucked into just wearing these shorts pretty much all the time. Then I bought another pair...and I'm about to buy another. If you're multi-sport active they're the best shorts I've found. The only wear I've had were some holes from slipping in a crack when climbing, but overall they've taken a lot of abuse without signs of wear. Another killer product from prAna.

    Colors seem a little off

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 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.

    Prana Yoga shorts

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

    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.

    Perfection.

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

    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.

      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.
