    Details

    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 new favorite

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    These are probably the comfiest pair of shorts I have ever owned. The stretchy material makes for a real comfortable snug fit. Made of real high quality material bound to last me years. I would recommend these to anyone with an active lifestyle!

    Super Versatile

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34x11
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    I love these shorts! Great for any activity but with a classic style that's great for everyday wear. Super durable, lightweight material that's also comfortable. What more could you ask for? I'll definitely be adding more colors to my collection!

    Awesome - Flexible

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32x11
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 187lbs

    I was looking for an attractive modern fitting short that could do a couple key things: Total free movement at the gym for stretching, running, lifting, and climbing; And look great and be comfortable for any summer outings with friends. These shorts are perfect in all of those capacities. I'm 5'11 187 lbs with long legs and pretty thick thighs and butt. I got the 32x11. They are form fitting high if you have some butt muscle then keep sort of a straight leg (it doesn't really taper to hug your leg towards the knee). The 11 inch inseam sits nicely at my knee cap. Great shorts.

    The perfect shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I've owned two pairs of Bronson shorts for years and love them. I bought the Brion pants last year and guessed that the Brion shorts would be awesome for warmer weather. They did not disappoint. The cut is perfect; nice and trim but not skinny hipster uncomfortable. I like the 11" inseam. I have short legs and they sit right over my knees when I'm standing and just above them when I'm sitting. The Bronson shorts have the exact same fit, but are a heavier cotton canvas. So I put on the Bronsons when I want more durability and the Brions for hotter and sweatier feats. Both look and feel just right.

    Best Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 31 x 9
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    These shorts are amazing.

    Fit is excellent - definitely not baggy but not slim cut and constricting. They allow plenty of flex when hiking or biking. Waist size is accurate - I usually wear a 31-32 waist jean, due to the material that was a bit loose while a 31 fits perfectly. Length on the 9" is good for taller folk who like a shorter short that's not too short.

    The material is quite lightweight while still durable. I wear these day after day and they don't get disgusting fast. The material has a bit of stretch, doesn't get too wrinkly, and dries fast after jumping in the lake. I plan to buy several more pairs.

    My Summer Go-To Everyday

      These shorts are incredible. Highly recommend if you’re the type who likes an easy choice for every adventure whether it be a regular work day or a full day ascent up el cap. These shorts do it all. Just bought two more pairs in different colors, I plan to use them until they fall off my legs, which doesn’t seem likely to happen any time soon.

      Buy 'em

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

      I can only echo what everyone else has said: these shorts are awesome. They're comfortable to move in because of the stretch, they're not cumbersome or baggy and are they're nicely fitted without being skin tight. I'm 5'9" with short legs and went with the 9" inseam, which was just about the perfect length. If Prana came out with an 8" or 7" inseam I would be set. They're rugged enough for hiking and climbing, and even look comfortable enough for commuting (although I'm not sure how reinforced the crotch is) but don't look silly or out of place off the trail. I'll be buying more pairs in the future.

      Zion made for office

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Size Bought: 36
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 200lbs

      These are great for everyday wear. I can wear them at the office or hiking. I've always worn the Zion, but recently have wanted something different. I went to the Volcom Chino stretch and loved those, but the material just isn't' as great as this stretch Zion fabric. These have a much cleaner look and fit just as great as the stretch Zion. I bought multiple pairs of these at the 36" waist, I could wear the 34 but I enjoy a little more room and don't mind wearing a belt. I wear a 34 in the Zion for hiking/backpacking, but 36x11 in these for casual.

      Perfect Fit

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 165lbs

      These shorts are awesome. I got the 9 inch inseam. It hits perfectly above my knee. They have a little stretch and are super comfortable. I have loved all of the Prana shorts I have owned and these are no exception.

      Great Shorts, Perfect Length

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

      What can I say? They are great pants! They have the zion stretch fabric with 4-direction stretch. Event he waistband has a little give for when you are moving and groovin' around. I'm a big fan of these because they are perfect for the golf course and can be turned around for a quick climb or hike. I love these shorts and the pants are just as good!

      Another 5-Star Review

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 30x9
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 155lbs

      I don't like to rate everything I buy 5-stars, but I can' think of anything I dislike about these shorts. They do everything! Dress them up for a summer dinner date or take them out on your mountain bike as an overshort. As the proud owner of four pairs, I can say I have one for every occasion.
      The nylon-lycra blend offers a great range of motion that's boosted by the gusseted inseam. I've never experienced issues with pilling despite trying very hard to wear them out. Buy these shorts.

      MacGyver's shorts!!!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 30x11
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      So I know that the T.V. show Macgyver has been off the air for several years but the name still represents something. A person who is extremely creative and versatile in every scenario. If Macguyver was still on the air I'm sure Prana would sponsor him and these would be the shorts he would wear on hot summer days. They shed water easily and anything they absorb will evaporate what seems to be instantaneously!! The fit of these shorts is phenomenal and maybe only surpassed by their looks.
      If you're looking for an affordable pair of outstanding, high quality short,. then look no further. These are for you. You will not be disappointed!!!

      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
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32
      • Height: 5'11"
      • 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.
