    I am never buying another pair of Prana Mojo shorts! The Rab Crank Short is a WAY better product! First off, I've noticed a lot of inconsistencies with Prana quality in manufacturing and definitely in their sizing. These Rab shorts are spot on! I like the cotton better than Prana's nylon fabric, both for durability and breathability. The fit is similar but the Rab Crank seems to fit just a little better. I am almost always a 32 or Medium in all shorts, pants, etc. I am a 30 or Small in Prana...32 in Rab (I am normally a medium). I was a little concerned at first with the Rab Crank Short fit in the was a little tight but because they are cotton, they now fit perfectly only after one day wearing them. I am fully SOLD!!! I got these primarily for climbing and wearing a harness and the fit did not let me down. The way that the crotch is gusseted fits very well with a harness on. Awesome waistband!
