    Casual performance.

    People might just assume that you're always exploring mountain trails and trying new boulder problems, but the reality is you have a job and responsibilities just like anyone else. The Prana Men's Zion Chino Short can be worn during the adventurous and not-so-adventurous aspects of your life thanks to a performance-oriented design and casual look. Equipped with Prana's near-legendary Zion fabric, these shorts have a touch of stretch for those after-work climbing sessions and a moisture-wicking finish to dispel moisture when you're out for a hike. And since they have a classic chino construction, these shorts can be worn around town, without making you feel like you're wearing something too techy for the short walk to the coffee shop.

    • All-purpose shorts for the trail, crag, and city
    • Zion fabric is durable, stretchy, and moisture-wicking
    • UPF 50 rating protects against harmful UV rays
    • Mesh hand, back, and side utility pockets
    • Item #PRA00XY

    Out running bears

    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I bought these for my boyfriend and he likes them a lot! He says they are super comfortable, light, and stretchy. If he happens to be on a hike and suddenly needs to speed up to a sprint, nothing about the shorts would be holding him back. He could definitely outrun 2 or more elder bears.

    great shorts

    very comfortable, fit true to size. with just a little bit of stretch for ease of movement. good quality. I also have two pair of the Zion pants and really like them as well

    Love these.

    When these get tossed in the laundry I’m worried about what I’m going to wear next. They fit great, feel amazing and can wear hiking, to dinner, etc. There’s a reason Prana gets killer reviews on their shorts and many other things. My only knock on this model is I still almost wish they have the cinch built-in belt, so great but love em anyway.

    Yup...they work

    I'm a traveler who lives out of his backpack and was looking for one pair of shorts that could tick multiple boxes. I've found it with this pair of shorts. I've had them for a month so far and have been hiking, camping, done yoga, swam, and whatever else I get into. The material is easy to wash, dries quickly, and doesn't smell. The side pocket down the right leg fits sunglasses, beer, gum, remotes, water. Big fan of all the pockets and would highly recommend these shorts to anyone who is looking for one pair of shorts to achieve a variety of tasks.

    Where's the belt?

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

    First and foremost, I think Prana pants & shorts are my go to bottoms for most occasions. They fit very well and are super comfortable. From anything to lounging at home, mowing the lawn, hiking/backpacking, to bouldering. Can't go wrong. However, the reason I left off a star for these guys is the lack of the built in little belt that the Stretch Zion pants and shorts come with. This is essentially the same short, with different pockets and inseam but NO mini belt. I love that thing and it's sorely missed on these. Other than that minor detail, these are the perfect shorts for me and I will continue to pick up more

    Stylish and Comfortable

    The perfect summertime short; lightweight, stylish, and stretchy.

    These shorts fit true to size and I wear them everywhere, from the office to the golf course these can do it all.

    I would recommend these shorts to anyone looking for a nice looking and comfortable short.

    The Stylish Cousin to Stretch Zion

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

    I picked up a pair of these in conjunction with the traditional Stretch ZIon Shorts. I really like them both as they offer similar aspects but are also slightly different which also makes them both versatile in everyday situation.

    The chino is definitely more of a style piece as the shorts are an inch longer, 11 inches, and the chinos have less pockets. The chinos really dial in the simple and slim look when it comes to shorts. Don't get me wrong, I am still gonna be active as hell in these shorts and get after it.

    Great Comfort and Versatility

    I wear these shorts from the office, to the trails, to the fishing/swimming hole. Classic fit/design with modern tech. Stretchy ultra-wicking fabric allows for full range of motion during any activity, and quick drying after that post huike dip in the lake. These fit true to size.

    Great value

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

    These are the most comfortable and versatile shorts I own. Great for hiking, lounging, or hitting the town. Water beads off them, and they don't stink after wearing them, so you don't need to wash them after every wear. Would definitely buy these again.

    Upgrade the Standard Zion

    I have really liked these shorts, the fit is great, same amazing stretch zion material, and a refined look with no cargo pockets. I'd call that a win, win, win, win. Fit and material you know and love, with an updated, classier look.

    There are no better shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great quality material, soft, stretchy and ready for business or play. What's not to love? Grab a pair and you'll see.

    I bought these to replace some Chrome Folsom shorts for my daily work commute and they're perfect. The length, cut, fit and fabric are all just right and miles better than the Chrome shorts. I've had rides in 100+ degree heat and they stayed comfortable. The lightweight fabric and mesh pockets really help it breathe. I'd give it six stars if I could.

    Awesome lightweight shorts

    I love these shorts. Super comfy and stretchy. Lightweight and active for sure!

    My Favorite Zion Model Yet

    I have been wearing Prana Stretch Zion pants and shorts for 5 or 6 years now and this new chino style has quickly become my favorite yet. My main climbing shorts had previously been the original Stretch Zion Short with the 12 inch inseam, which is great when you are wearing a harness, as harnesses tend to shorten the effective length of your shorts, but were a little long for my liking for casual wear (at or slightly below the knee). When I saw that Prana was putting out a chino style short with my favorite stretch zion fabric I knew I needed to try it and I have been quite pleased. The 11 inch inseam is exactly the length that I wanted for casual wear and they still work great with a harness as well. They also have a much cleaner look since they took away the cargo pocket on the left thigh, so they are great for wear at summer BBQs as well as at the crag. I have been hoping for a short like this for years, and Prana totally read my mind and hit the nail square on the head with their execution.

    I have always worn 32's in my Prana pants and shorts, and these are no exception. I will probably be buying at least one or two more pairs in other colors.

    Same fit as original, but more stylish

    Bought 2 pairs in different colors. Same fit as other Prana Zion shorts/pants. For someone who loves the material, but wished for something more civilian/less rugged looking, these are for you.

    Wear anywhere and everywhere

    I purchased these shorts a few weeks ago and have worn them almost every day since. Having owned the stretch zion shorts for a few years I was already familiar with the stretch zion fabric, but was limited in when and where I could use them. With the zion chino I no longer have the same issue, I can put button up shirt and not feel out of place at a nice restaurant after a long day on the trail. The only noticeable differences in these shorts versus the stretch zion shorts is the lack of a cargo pocket and not having the inner thigh holes for breathability. I am already thinking about getting another pair after just three weeks with them.

    New Chino version of Stretch Zion Short

    Prana's new Zion Chino Shorts are made with the same stretchy, quick-drying and comfortable fabric as the original Stretch Zion Cargo shorts; however, they have an updated chino styling that really boosts their versatility in terms of dressing them up. While the Stretch Zion fabric's stretch and breathability is always ready for whatever you want to throw at it (Hiking, Climbing, Swimming, Relaxing), this new clean design makes the Zion Chino look great with a collared shirt as well - something that many people feel the Stretch Zion cannot do well. For fans of the Stretch Zion Short who are looking to diversify their portfolio, the Zion Chino is a must have.
