    My favorite shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I have a couple different colors of these shorts and they are always the ones I reach for, regardless of activity. Sizing seems correct, material is pretty robust, pockets make sense and I like the length.

    back for more...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'1"

    travel, yard work, mountain biking, hiking, wet wading, around town, around the house...best shorts ever. Biggest issue is BC (and other retailers for that matter) keeping the size/colors in stock...

    O So Great I Bought 2 More Pair

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36' waist 12" inseam
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    This is my 2nd & 3rd pair of these shorts as I bought a pair in a dark charcoal color and love them. I am 6'2" with long legs and the 12" inseam are great as they fall right at (above) my knee. Durable, roomy and comfortable with deep pockets and a single 'cargo' pocket gives you ample room to hold you wallet, keys, phone, etc without the bulge. That said these aren't blousing out either. These have supplanted my Kuhl shorts as my fav and staple for the summer. Guys with less leg length should probably plan on 10" unless you like your shorts over your knees.

    Great shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    • Size Bought: Xl

    • Weight: 240lbs

    Just bought my 6th color of these as well as the pants. These are the best shorts around for hiking and everyday use. Super comfy, awesome pockets, good stretch, reasonable price, and after 2 years of wearing my first pair purchased, they still look pretty new and have no problems. And i wear them a lot and sit on granite frequently. I usually dont love built in belts but these are a big exception. Even the belt system is great, 8t doesnt twist or ever have the end be sucked inside the loop. Try these but pls dont take my size.

    Took hiking in desert heat.

    I really like these shorts. Very comfortable, stretch, and light for hot days. I took them hiking in Arizona in July and they were perfect. They fit true to size and do stretch lol I mentioned. You won’t be dissatisfied or disappointed.

    Pair #2 for my Husband

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

    I bought a pair of these years ago for my husband (then boyfriend) when I worked at another outdoor retailer and while that pair is still holding up after 7 years (!!), there was enough pilling, stains and overall wear that I went ahead and bought him another pair when these went on sale. He is between a 34-36 and luckily Prana sells these in 35 so the fit is great, and they're just so durable that I'm glad these are a staple style for Prana -- my husband loves them! We live a pretty casual lifestyle, and these get us through 98% of any summer activity we have going on, outdoors or around town.

    Jack of all trades

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32x10
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    I have used my Zion shorts for everything from mountain biking to traveling to lounging. The stretch fit is wonderful, and they look great on top of being very functional.

    You can't go wrong with the Zion short

    I got these for my dad, we are going on a trip to Africa next month and he needed something to withstand the hot dry weather there. These are the most versatile short on the market, from safari to climbing to mountain biking.
