    The prAna Brion Shorts utilize crazy-tough nylon to keep you covered in outdoor conditions where cotton might rip, tear, or just leave you feeling sweaty or soggy. Durable construction means these shorts will stand up to desert excursions and deep-forest bushwhacking. Plus, thanks to their laid-back five-pocket design you'll look good when you're hanging out around town, too.

    • Abrasion-resistant, quick-drying nylon can stand up to aggressive encounters with rock faces and tree branches while a bit of Lycra adds flexibility
    • DWR finish repels moisture so you won't get soggy in a drizzle
    • Standard fit is balanced, not too tight and not too baggy
    • Five-pocket styling with rivet reinforcements adds a classic look
    • Item #PRA1640

    My Favorite pair of shorts ever!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34x11
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I bought these to try and I love the fit. I bought the 11" inseam and they hit just below my knee. If you are not a fan of shorts with pockets on the sides, these are definitely the shorts for you. They have pockets on the front like a pair of jeans and they don't stick out whan you sit down (like the afore mentioned shorts with pockets on the sides) I love them and will be buying more.

    Another 5 Star Review

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33x9
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    I'm on 3 pairs of the Brion pants, so naturally I picked up a pair of the shorts for summer. Expectations were high and easily met! This fabric is one of my all-time favorites for comfort, stretch, wrinkle-resistance, you name it. The shorts have a great fit, move well and are perfect for just about any outdoors activity. It won't be long before I'm back for some different colors.

    I'm On my 3rd Pair...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    These shorts are pretty much perfect. They have a good amount of stretch, but the material still feels durable. The pockets are horizontal instead of "chino" style or more vertical, so they dont flare out and let your phone fall out when you sit down. The 9" short goes right above my knee cap, and fits well around my bubble butt. They're my favorite shorts so far, and I'll definitely be snagging more of them.

    Comfy, Durable, Quality!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Weight: 170lbs

    I have been going with prana for my short and pant needs for ages. I like the slimmer fit of these compared to many of the other prana shorts. there is plenty of stretch that even with the slim fit there is no problem getting high feet when climbing or any other mobility issues.

    Love These

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    These quickly became my favorite pairs of shorts. They are super comfortable, and the stretchy material makes them great for any type of adventure. I found the fit to be true to size, even though Prana sizing can be spotty.

    Go to shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30”
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    Who wears anything, especially shorts, without stretch these days? These shorts have the right amount of stretch to climb in, hike in, or just kick it around town. Best part in my opinion are the pockets. It seems like 95% of shorts these days have pockets that run vertical down the side of your hip. Inevitably the pockets bow out which in turn pushes up your shirt. It may just be me but that drives me crazy. These shorts are like jean pockets that run along the top of the short horizontally. This completely alleviates the above problem. Overall, totally dig these shorts!

    Shorts made for movin

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34X9
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    These shorts are some of my favorite shorts of all time. The strech nylon and the 9" inseam is perfect for just about anything you can think of from hiking to biking, to wade fishing, and even to sleep in . Amazing shorts. Would wear them everyday if I could.

    Very versatile

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    These shorts offer the ruggedness and range of motion you can count on from anything in the Zion/Brion lineup, but also is sleek enough to be worn around LA or Miami on a Summer night! Be sure to go with these for your next set of dress, climbing, and hiking shorts-- they're unbelievably versatile!

    Brion = Dressy Zion

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I love the fit and the fabric of my Brion shorts, and the style (5 pocket, like a jean) is great and way more versatile than the Stretch Zion shorts I have. They are just a little too tactical, but the Brions are great for work or casual wear.

    Love my Zions, and my Brions

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I have a handful of Zions that I love. Decided to try these. I really like them. They are a little slimmer and don't have side pockets like the Zion. I will pick up a few more.

    quality material but average fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    • Weight: 195lbs

    The materials Prana uses in these shorts are great! They also seem to fit true to size. However, they are like a LOT of shorts on the market right now and baggy at the bottom. I'm a runner and have fairly fit legs, so I'd prefer shorts that are more fitted (but not skin tight). Yes I'm picky, but after trying several brands I found that Royal Robbins makes shorts exactly what I'm looking for.

    these things are awesome! they fit just like the pants. i love the 11in inseam and stretchy fit. Its a great short for just about anything. get out side and enjoy some activity.

    Get them

    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    Indisputable 5 stars. Worth every penny.

    The fit is awesome. It's abrasiveness versatile style meets any outdoor activity. I have two of these shorts, they are a little different in waist, as the other reviews were stating. Don't be discouraged, get 'em.

    Awesome shorts

    This is my second pair of these Prana shorts. I usually purchase/wear Patagonia Stand-Up shorts, but I needed something a little less feral to wear out-and-about. These totally fit the bill. These shorts are super comfortable and if Prana made a cargo version with the 9" inseam, I'd wear them for all my spring/summer backcountry hikes. The pockets fit all my daily carry stuff and the stretchy fabric is soft and breathable.
    My only beef is that the color shown in the photograph on the site as "dark khaki" looked more like "light tan," so when the shorts arrived, I was momentarily confused. I still kept the shorts, but y'all might double check with Customer Service to make sure the color you ordered is the color you see.

    Want them in every color

    I bough a pair of these shorts to test them out and I immediately wish I had them in every color. Nice and comfortable fit but even better than that - they have some stretch in the fabric so they are flexible and easy to move in. Definitely recommend.

    Liked the shorts, but didn't keep them.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30X9
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    Bought these shorts and liked the fit and look, however, I ended up returning them. I was comparing these shorts directly to the Kuhl Ramblr's and the Kuhls ended up fitting and looking just a little better. I'm pretty short and wide, so that might be the reason. Despite all this, if these shorts were my only option, I would be very happy with them.

    Best all around shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I own 3 pair (both 9 and 11) for a long time now including another 2 pairs of brion pants. Super comfy, look great, fit great, and you can do anything athletic in them. I love finding them on sale for under $50; worth every penny. Have owned 2 pairs of Stretch Zion and another pants for many years, but the Brions on the bomb (no cargo pocket and a slimmer fit).

    The reviews speak for themselves

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

    These shorts are awesome and I would highly recommend them to anyone. I started out wearing the Stretch Zions and loved those shorts. Someone said that I should try these because they are very similar but just without the cargo pocket on the side. I have these in multiple colors and use them for all sorts of activities; bars, golf, work, you name it. Prana has it figured out when it comes to comfortable/stylish articles of clothing. Let me know if you have any questions on the fit of these or any other Prana pieces.
