    Relaxed fit, lightweight jean

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 4
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    These were a go-to short for me this summer on rafting and camping trips. I love the longer length that added some sun protection, and they easily fit over a bathing suit with room to spare. If you want bum-hugging or waist-synching jeans, look elsewhere. These are nice and relaxed.

    Good Coverage

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 4
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I really love the length of these shorts. They don't expose too much, but are still very cute. However, I'm not crazy about the back pockets. They're a bit oversized which kind of gives you the illusion of a mom butt. Runs true to the size chart but Prana pants are vanity sized.

    SO Comfortable

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

    I bought these for my girlfriend: These short are so comfortable! The material and soft and stretchy. They're just the right length too. I liked the Indigo color so much that I also bought them in Cargo Green. Highly recommend!

    Nice fit!

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

    The Wife: Just bought these looking for something that matches my age. I didn't want short shorts but also wanted to stay away from board shorts and these were just the item! The fit was nice and they are a good length that I can feel comfortable in.

    Okay shorts

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

    I bought these shorts looking for a basic jean pair. They definitely get the job done but they were a little saggy on my bottom and ended up returning them. They just weren't for me but Prana always makes great quality products and these were no exception.

    Best jean shorts I own.

      I am in love. As a mom who doesn't want to wear "mom shorts" I found the perfect pair that are not too long and not too short. I'm not exposing the gluteus maximus and it's not a Bermuda short. That only took me 4 years to find.

      Comfy, soft but thin

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 4
      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 125lbs

      I like the cut of these shorts a lot. They offer the ability to roll them up or leave them longer, which is nice when I'm wearing them to work. They're not too baggy so I enjoy avoiding the camp counselor look. Perfectly snug around the waist and looser in the leg room. I'll be wearing these all summer for sure. They are a really thin material so I'm interested to see how they last over the summer and if they'll get worn out quickly.

      Perfect short

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 10
      • Height: 5'5"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      These shorts are perfect! They are the perfect length. Not too short, but not too matronly at all either.
      I love that they are a little stretchy, so I can hike, climb, do whatever in them comfortably! They are such cute prints that you can dress them up or down as well.

      I have the Kara Pant and I found that these are actually a little smaller than those pants. I had to order one size up from the size I have in the pants and they fit great. I am 5'5, and 160 lbs and wear a size 8 usually, but had to order a size 10 in these.

      Now, I just need to order every color and I will be set!

      only one disappointment

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 8
      • Height: 5'2"

      These fit well, and are made from a super soft material. However, the bottom rolled up hem is not secure. I found that odd. Also the actual edge of the material does fray a lot. Only washed them once so far--we'll see how it goes.
