    these are really great shorts. I normally wear a small in other shorts and pants, including Prana. I ordered these in a small and they were about 6 inches too big in the waist. I could have fit a 2-liter bottle in the front and still had room for some snacks. I'm normally about a 30" or 32" depending on the brand and how crazy their sizing is. An extra small in the sutra fit me just great. Update: these need a button or some elastic in the waist. In order to take a leak you basically have to forcefully and awkwardly pull down the front and since there is zero give in the waist after a few iced teas the waist is stretched out and its like wearing a size larger. They stretch and dont shrink back when washed or dried. Ive worn them twice and the waist is an inch bigger already. By the end of the summer I may not be able to wear them out if this keeps up.

    My go-to shorts for everything! The short is lightweight and comfortable enough for lounging, and you can seriously use this short for anything. It has full legs and an inseam gusset for advanced mobility, and a drawstring waist that lets you customize the fit. You can't go wrong with these shorts you will end up ordering more!

    Great comfort

    Extremely comfortable. I’m 6ft 175lbs 32in waist. Length is perfect. Waist is on large side, but drawstring works fine.

    These are so comfortable that I wear them at least once a week. The colors are very earthy and go with everything. I just need to pick up a few more pairs so that I can wear them even more. They are very lightweight and the drawstring waist makes it convenient so you don't have to wear a belt.

    Tech specs are wrong

    Familiarity:
    I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    Fit:
    Runs large

    The pants are ok, but the tech specs are wrong. I bought the pants in black based on this "(Black and Espress0) 54% hemp, 44% organic cotton, 2% spandex" and found out they are mostly made of polyester. Unfortunately I read this on the label after I washed them. I wouldn't have bought them if I knew.

    I love these shorts! I have worn them around town, to class as well as climbing and hiking. They are so light and breathable sometimes you'll wonder if there still on. I really like the drawstring feature as it keeps the shorts in place. Also if your planning to take these backpacking it will reduce the friction between your hip pad and your hip typically caused by a belt. The only draw back to these is that the front pockets are a bit shallow so my phone has slipped out. Overall I love these shorts!

    When I bought these shorts I had never owned any clothes or gear from Prana... I'm now completely sold. These are the most comfortable shorts I've ever owned. This summer I lived out of my backpack for 3 months and these + a pair of baggies were all I needed. The material is a little thin, but they've held up to almost 2 years of abuse. Buy these shorts if you like... Climbing, bike commutes, being comfortable, slacklining, impressing your friends, drinking your morning coffee... and anything else you'd ever need to do short of a denali expedition.

    He says that the only con is these don't have a fly, other than that, really likes them! Runs a little big, too.

    Overall I'm very happy with these shorts. The material is soft, they fit well and are generally very comfortable. Three relatively minor complaints: (1) I wish they had more of a fly (currently there is none) -- it's currently a bit difficult/awkward to urinate while wearing them, (2) I wish they had a belt loop -- if nothing else to connect my keychain to, and (3) the rear pocket is on the left side but being right handed (as most people are) I always reach back to the right.

    Almost perfect. Lightweight, no belt required. 32 waist = medium. My only feedback for Prana would be to add a button or something on the back pocket. If you are going to have a pocket, you might as well make it somewhat secure.

    Got these as a gift but have feedback. These are a great summer short, light weight and comfortable. They are nice because they are breathable as well. Purchase these in every color if you can! They are a must for summer!

    Versatile, lightweight, airy short

    The Sutra is spacious and comfortable. These shorts don't have much stretch nor an elastic waistband, but don't necessarily need it. The fabric drawstring is tied like a shoe and gets the job done just fine. Feels exactly how it looks, if that makes sense. The fabric feels thin and dry, which is more of an observation than negative descriptors, because these shorts are great. The pant version are exactly the same, just longer. Medium fits well on a 33" waist.

    I purchased these thinking I'd just use them as climbing shorts after reading all the great reviews(they are!) but I ended up getting sucked into just wearing these shorts pretty much all the time. Then I bought another pair...and I'm about to buy another. If you're multi-sport active they're the best shorts I've found. The only wear I've had were some holes from slipping in a crack when climbing, but overall they've taken a lot of abuse without signs of wear. Another killer product from prAna.

    Thought the "Pineneedle" would be a lighter green with more white highlights, but really is a pretty dark green. I returned them and got the "Black" instead which is really just a nice dark gray. I'm a 31" waist and size Small fits great (would have ordered a Medium if I didn't read other reviews).

    I normally wear a medium but small fits perfectly as I like my yoga clothes slim fitting. These shorts are constructed beautifully with hemp blend that makes the short pop in a subtle way. I use these as sleepwear as well.

    What is the inseam?

    What is the inseam?

    A size medium has an 11" inseam, and that will vary slightly if you buy a larger or smaller size.
