Brion Short

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

These are downright the BEST shorts I have ever owned. full stop. climb, run, ride, go on dates you can do any thing in these AND be super comfortable and stylish. I seriously can't say enough good things. I'm Just slowly replacing all my shorts with different colors of these. I normally have problems finding shorts that fit without a belt or in general as a very athletic 6' 185 lbs normally the thighs are FAR too tight or the waist is too large. These have none of those problems.

I’m a full figured guy and sometimes my hips don’t fit where my waist wants so shorts can be difficult. I’m on the fence between 36/38 most of my life. These are on the bigger side, or stretchy and more forgiving. If your in between size down!

I was needing to replace some equivalent Patagonia shorts. These are a better length and a more durable material. They're not heavy, but they have some heft to them. The form and fit are perfect.

I have 3 pair of these shorts. They are great for casual wear or activities- hiking,... the ,arterial stretches and there is a gusseted crotch, so no bunching or tight feeling when being active one pair is the 11 inch and the other 2 are the 9 inch length- both are ok, but I would be fine with 10 inch length. I compared to s fall other brands- Kuhl, and others and I like these much better

These shorts have a bit of stretch to them which makes them really comfy. If I had it to do over again I might have ordered them one size smaller as the stretch would account for the smaller waist size.

I own 3 pairs of these shorts as well as 4 pairs of the pants version. The stretch fabric, larger gusset, and water repellant finish are all great and make for an extremely versatile and comfortable pant. The only issue I've seen with all of the pairs I have is that occasionally some of the stitching on the seams has been defective on arrival for one pair and wore prematurely on a second. Not a huge deal, but definitely keep an eye out for it when you first get them. Overall though, I'm a huge fan and will keep buying more.

These shorts are near perfect, they have the right amount of stretch and the Mud color is my favorite. They run big so I recommend sizing down.

You are spot on! I’m same size as you went with 36. Very happy!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
