    Details

    The prAna Brion Shorts utilize crazy-tough nylon to keep you covered in outdoor conditions where cotton might rip, tear, or just leave you feeling sweaty or soggy. Durable construction means these shorts will stand up to desert excursions and deep-forest bushwhacking. Plus, thanks to their laid-back five-pocket design you'll look good when you're hanging out around town, too.

    • Abrasion-resistant, quick-drying nylon can stand up to aggressive encounters with rock faces and tree branches while a bit of Lycra adds flexibility
    • DWR finish repels moisture so you won't get soggy in a drizzle
    • Standard fit is balanced, not too tight and not too baggy
    • Five-pocket styling with rivet reinforcements adds a classic look
    • Item #PRA1640

    Zion made for office

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Size Bought: 36
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    These are great for everyday wear. I can wear them at the office or hiking. I've always worn the Zion, but recently have wanted something different. I went to the Volcom Chino stretch and loved those, but the material just isn't' as great as this stretch Zion fabric. These have a much cleaner look and fit just as great as the stretch Zion. I bought multiple pairs of these at the 36" waist, I could wear the 34 but I enjoy a little more room and don't mind wearing a belt. I wear a 34 in the Zion for hiking/backpacking, but 36x11 in these for casual.

    Perfect Fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    These shorts are awesome. I got the 9 inch inseam. It hits perfectly above my knee. They have a little stretch and are super comfortable. I have loved all of the Prana shorts I have owned and these are no exception.

    Great Shorts, Perfect Length

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    What can I say? They are great pants! They have the zion stretch fabric with 4-direction stretch. Event he waistband has a little give for when you are moving and groovin' around. I'm a big fan of these because they are perfect for the golf course and can be turned around for a quick climb or hike. I love these shorts and the pants are just as good!

    Brion shorts give you the perfect fit

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30 x 9
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    Breezy shorts at the 9-inch inseam do it all while staying light weight.

    Another 5-Star Review

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30x9
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I don't like to rate everything I buy 5-stars, but I can' think of anything I dislike about these shorts. They do everything! Dress them up for a summer dinner date or take them out on your mountain bike as an overshort. As the proud owner of four pairs, I can say I have one for every occasion.
    The nylon-lycra blend offers a great range of motion that's boosted by the gusseted inseam. I've never experienced issues with pilling despite trying very hard to wear them out. Buy these shorts.

    MacGyver's shorts!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30x11
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    So I know that the T.V. show Macgyver has been off the air for several years but the name still represents something. A person who is extremely creative and versatile in every scenario. If Macguyver was still on the air I'm sure Prana would sponsor him and these would be the shorts he would wear on hot summer days. They shed water easily and anything they absorb will evaporate what seems to be instantaneously!! The fit of these shorts is phenomenal and maybe only surpassed by their looks.
    If you're looking for an affordable pair of outstanding, high quality short,. then look no further. These are for you. You will not be disappointed!!!

    My Favorite pair of shorts ever!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34x11
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I bought these to try and I love the fit. I bought the 11" inseam and they hit just below my knee. If you are not a fan of shorts with pockets on the sides, these are definitely the shorts for you. They have pockets on the front like a pair of jeans and they don't stick out whan you sit down (like the afore mentioned shorts with pockets on the sides) I love them and will be buying more.

    Another 5 Star Review

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33x9
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    I'm on 3 pairs of the Brion pants, so naturally I picked up a pair of the shorts for summer. Expectations were high and easily met! This fabric is one of my all-time favorites for comfort, stretch, wrinkle-resistance, you name it. The shorts have a great fit, move well and are perfect for just about any outdoors activity. It won't be long before I'm back for some different colors.

    I'm On my 3rd Pair...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    These shorts are pretty much perfect. They have a good amount of stretch, but the material still feels durable. The pockets are horizontal instead of "chino" style or more vertical, so they dont flare out and let your phone fall out when you sit down. The 9" short goes right above my knee cap, and fits well around my bubble butt. They're my favorite shorts so far, and I'll definitely be snagging more of them.

    Comfy, Durable, Quality!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I have been going with prana for my short and pant needs for ages. I like the slimmer fit of these compared to many of the other prana shorts. there is plenty of stretch that even with the slim fit there is no problem getting high feet when climbing or any other mobility issues.

    Love These

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    These quickly became my favorite pairs of shorts. They are super comfortable, and the stretchy material makes them great for any type of adventure. I found the fit to be true to size, even though Prana sizing can be spotty.

    Go to shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30”
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    Who wears anything, especially shorts, without stretch these days? These shorts have the right amount of stretch to climb in, hike in, or just kick it around town. Best part in my opinion are the pockets. It seems like 95% of shorts these days have pockets that run vertical down the side of your hip. Inevitably the pockets bow out which in turn pushes up your shirt. It may just be me but that drives me crazy. These shorts are like jean pockets that run along the top of the short horizontally. This completely alleviates the above problem. Overall, totally dig these shorts!

    Shorts made for movin

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34X9
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    These shorts are some of my favorite shorts of all time. The strech nylon and the 9" inseam is perfect for just about anything you can think of from hiking to biking, to wade fishing, and even to sleep in . Amazing shorts. Would wear them everyday if I could.

    Very versatile

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    These shorts offer the ruggedness and range of motion you can count on from anything in the Zion/Brion lineup, but also is sleek enough to be worn around LA or Miami on a Summer night! Be sure to go with these for your next set of dress, climbing, and hiking shorts-- they're unbelievably versatile!

    Brion = Dressy Zion

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I love the fit and the fabric of my Brion shorts, and the style (5 pocket, like a jean) is great and way more versatile than the Stretch Zion shorts I have. They are just a little too tactical, but the Brions are great for work or casual wear.

    Love my Zions, and my Brions

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I have a handful of Zions that I love. Decided to try these. I really like them. They are a little slimmer and don't have side pockets like the Zion. I will pick up a few more.

    quality material but average fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    The materials Prana uses in these shorts are great! They also seem to fit true to size. However, they are like a LOT of shorts on the market right now and baggy at the bottom. I'm a runner and have fairly fit legs, so I'd prefer shorts that are more fitted (but not skin tight). Yes I'm picky, but after trying several brands I found that Royal Robbins makes shorts exactly what I'm looking for.

    Prana Knows comfort

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 35x11
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 205lbs

    these things are awesome! they fit just like the pants. i love the 11in inseam and stretchy fit. Its a great short for just about anything. get out side and enjoy some activity.
