    Finally replaced my cargos

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33x11
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    I dig these. I had my doubts about the tighter fit of these than my usual cargo shorts, but I move much better, and definitely climb better, in these than the loose fit I was used to. These are a tough-ish material with no stretch, but they move with you rather than stick to your legs. Plus, my lady says they look good on me. Hahahaha!

    Strong yet sensitive

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    There isn't too much that I can add to the fray on these - they are indeed tough like work shorts - the cotton fabric is a tad stiff ( I like that) and definitely feels very durable. Seems like it will hold up well against rocks and other things adventures can bring. Now for the sensitive - Prana stuff is well known for mobility and these are true to form, super comfortable and with strategic stretch that won't restrict any movement.

    Great shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30X9
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    These shorts fit well and look great. The fabric is a little thicker with some stretch, which makes them a little better suited for activities that could rip or tear thinner material. The length of the 9 inch inseam is actually closer to 10 inches, but I didn't find that bothersome at all. Other than this, the sizing was true to size for me. I'm pretty short and wide, and these shorts work great for me..

    Durable and stretchy

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 28
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I couldn't believe how heavy duty the fabric was when I put them on. I thought they would be rather constricting when trying to hike or climb, but I was very wrong. They allow for a full range of motion no matter where your legs are headed. Very well made like all Prana pieces, I expect these shorts to last my lifetime.

    Absolutely loving these shorts. Great for casual walking around town but still incredible for camping, hiking, climbing, all the above. Super comfortable and a great fit.

    Can you go wrong with anything by Prana?

    Another Prana purchase another amazing product. Love everything they make. Great quality, material, sizing...list goes on an on. I have yet to find anything by Prana I haven't loved. Probably why half of my closet is Prana. Get you some!

    Great Quality Shorts

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

    These shorts are good looking, made with super durable materials, have nice large pockets, and overall just rock! I highly recommend purchasing a pair. If you're looking for a classic, well styled short to wear during the spring, summer, fall - then look no further!

    Second pair, probably gonna buy a third.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 38
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 225lbs

    Fits perfect, usual high -end Prana quality and style.
    Runs true to size and accommodates folks with athletic builds.

    Classic Good Looking Shorts

    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Great feel and fit, on par with all of my Prana clothing. Soft hand, yet durable fabric makes for a great ever day short. Highly recommend for anyone looking for their next favorite pair of shorts.

    Favorite Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    Come springtime, I look forward to being able to wear these again. I have them in Dark Khaki & Cargo Green - both of which look great. They're very comfortable to wear all day and I love the large pockets. I found them to fit a little small. I'm normally a 32-33 in shorts. With these, I have a 33 & a 34 - both of which feel great.

    Fits great and comfortable on 8 miler

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I took these right from the packaging and wore on an 8-mile day hike in the Rockies. They fit well and the fabric seems tough enough to hold up to the abuse I'm likely to put it through. I probably won't wear these while bouldering because they don't have as much stretch as I'd need, but they seem up to other outdoor tasks and will also double for casual indoor occasions.

    Fantastic company to purchase clothing.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Have purchased this brand before for my husband, and will continue to buy because quality and price are a great value. Not able to find shorts locally this time of year, Backcountry promptly shipped them. Five stars for a easy transaction.

    Comfortable shorts for work or play

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 34
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    These shorts fit thinner people well and have great stretchy fabric. They are little snug but move well. Great for climbing or the office. Pockets are snug. Tend to wrinkle in the dryer.

    Feel Great

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32 & 34
    • Height: 6'5"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    I've had these for over 1 year now. As others have said, they feel great against your skin - soft, but plenty of durability too. I love all the pockets - especially the smaller one along your right leg. This has been my go-to phone pocket to de-clutter my hand pockets.

    I have pairs in both Dark Khaki and Cargo Green - both of which are true in color to their online pictures. I am normally a 32 waist & have a pair in a 32 and a pair in a 34. Both fit well and provide enough coverage for my 36 inseam legs. Overall, a great purchase. If you're in the market for new shorts, definitely consider these.

    Great fit, comfy stretch

    As shorts go these will carry you far!. They feel as good as they look...and they look great. Thanks P for what you do!

    Comfy and Durable!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    These things are money! They are the best of both worlds. The material is very soft and comfortable. They are also extremely durable. I have just used them a few times but I am sure these will last for a very long time.

    Unanswered Question

    Im 5'10' & 135lbs. How is the sizing.? I got some Patagonis shorts in 28 and the fit good. Should I go with the 28 or the 30 with a belt.?

    thanks, jah bless..!

    Best Answer

    I usually like to go with a belt, that said Prana pants I find tend to be pretty true to size, even a bit large. I'm a size 34 and I fit into the medium which is supposed to be for a 32 - 33 inch waist. Prana also makes shorts that stretch like the Zion (which i love). The good thing about that short is that it already has an integrated belt that you can cinch down

    Prana lists these as 98% cotton / 2%...

    Prana lists these as 98% cotton / 2% spandex. But this site says they are 100% cotton. Just wondering which one is correct. I have some older ones that are the 100% cotton, but I like the newer ones with a little spandex in them. Don't want to order the older version.

    can you tell me what the inseam is on this...
