    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 or get stained if you spill your beer on yourself
    • Standard fit is balanced, not too tight and not too baggy
    • Five-pocket styling with rivet reinforcements adds a classic look
    • Item #PRA1640

    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
    • Height: 6'2"
    • 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.

    Prana Knows comfort

    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

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    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

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    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
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    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.

    Amazing Everyday Use Shorts

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30x30
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I absolutely love these shorts. Amazing fit and the fabric is super stretchy and comfortable. I love the shorter length on them and they are very light and good to wear when the weather is hot. I got the 30x30 and they fit like a glove.

    I Wear This Short Every Day

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    This short is amazing. Seriously comfortable, and with amazing quality, I seriously wear this pant every day. The material used is nice and soft, and it really does have a lot of stretch to it. I have used them to climb in, and found that they contour to my movements really well; there was absolutely no problem with climbing and stretching in them.

    I am about 6'2", and that 9 inch inseam hits just below the knee for me. I got a 36 waist as well, and it fits perfectly true to size!

    I would definitely recommend this short to anyone that is in the market for one. I have loved it, and am planning on buying more of them in different colors.

    Good fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 36
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 198lbs

    This shorts fabric is stretchy and very light to the touch, which makes it perfect for work or hiking.

    Ordered one in brick, and the color is slightly darker than what is shown on the picture.

    Great warm weather travel short

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Bought these to take to Singapore and they are perfect in the hot, humid weather - extremely breathable and comfortable. As noted by others, they work great for active wear (hiking, climbing, etc) and work equally as well for heading to a restaurant for dinner.
