Why We Like The Brion Short II

We appreciate that the prAna Brion II Short uses a stretchy, tough nylon blend to keep us covered in outdoor conditions where cotton might rip, tear, or just leave us feeling sweaty or soggy. A durable construction means this short stands up to desert excursions and deep-forest bushwhacking missions alike. Plus, thanks to its laid-back five-pocket design, the Brion II looks good when you're hanging out around town, too.

I liked the color and the stretchy material but the size 33 waist fit very tight on me. The length of the shorts were fine. I returned this item.

Poor Durability

I have worn these shorts for about 7 months. The amount of pilling on loose threads on these shorts is surprising. I had higher expectations. I have worn the shorts primarily as casual wear, with some hiking and climbing as well. Particularly given that they haven't seen much abrasion I am very disappointed with the excessive wear. Very comfortable shorts, but I cannot recommend and will not buy again. The photo provides a representation of what the shorts look like, though I think it looks worse in person.

Not Durable At All

I did a lot of research on these before buying. The reviews were great. I swallowed the blue pill and bought three pairs. Wow, what a disappointment. If tofu and tissue paper had a baby, this would be their offspring. I've hardly worn these (wash on delicate, line dry) and they're already showing signs of wear on the legs. There's also a lot of pilling. Seriously, for this price, you should be getting a lot higher quality. I've bought shorts from Goodwill for a couple bucks that were higher quality than these. Bottom Line: I have no idea who's writing these reviews (Prana bloggers?), but these are the least durable shorts I've ever owned. I'm actually afraid of hiking in them. Please don't waste your money. You've been warned. Oh, and btw, the sizing is very inconsistant. So, don't expect to get the sizing right the first (or possibly second) time. Update: I talked to Prana corporate. They said to contact Backcountry and ask for a refund. I then contacted Backcountry and they indicated that since they're used and outside the 30-day return window, I'd have to contact Prana. Prana said that they'd only provide a partial refund for the lowest sale price on record. I asked for an exchange instead. They said, "We don't do that." So, I'd have to return them, receive a partial refund, then pay full price for something else on the Prana website. No refund, no exchange. Wow. Prana is owned by Columbia. I've been a loyal customer of Columbia for decades. Unfortunately, more and more apparel companies are acting like this. So, be warned. This is how Prana treats their customers. Profits over quality and customer loyalty.

These pants Rock

The material is sturdy enough yet not too hot on those uber warm days. They feel indestructible but look very nice and not out of place in a classy setting. i should by more colorways of these!

Perfect for climbing and everything else

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Basically the best climbing shorts I've ever owned. Got the 11" inseam which is perfect, I don't want to be that dude with really short shorts at the gym. Great for lead or bouldering, high-stepping is not a problem with the flexible material. They seem durable. I like that there are no cargo pockets so getting a harness on/off is no problem. I started wearing them most days and will probably get more.

Perfect shorts. I have 3 pairs.

Familiarity:

These look like classic 5 pocket shorts, but are way more comfortable with the stretch fabric and gusseted crotch. I have 3 pairs and wore these almost everyday this past spring and summer.

Fantastic cut and fit there's nothing I'd rather wear in warm weather! They will pill a little bit but are easy to remove. I plan to use these for hiking, travelling and everyday of the summer.
