    These shorts are awesome. On my way to collect all colors. They're comfortable at the waist with adjustable strap to tighten. They are stretch fabric with great pocket capacity.

    Awesome shorts! Looks great feels great. Cant think of anything to not like. I will be buying multiple pairs of these nothing to complain about!

    Best Shorts Ever!

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

    These shorts are my favorite shorts I have ever owned. They are stretchy and lightweight to fit your active lifestyle and can adapt to anything. Great pockets and breathable material. I need about 3 more pairs of these to replace all my current shorts!

    Fashion and Function

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

    These Prana shorts are nothing short of fantastic. Are great for hiking, can get wet, and dry fast as well. They come with a built in belt that actually functions quite well, however feel free to still throw a belt over anyway.

    Wicked comfortable and versatile

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

    I love my Prana Zion Stretch shorts. They're incredibly comfrotable and versatile, whether hiking or just bumbing around town.

    I especially love the mesh pockets which are incredibly soft and comfortable.

    Looking Fresh, Feeling Comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33 waist 10 inseam

    What makes these shorts great is how comfortable they are. I use them for everything (hiking, camping, and wearing out on the town). I am impressed with how versatile these shorts are!
    They fit true to size, I'm 5'10" 170lbs and am usually a 33in waist - 33's fit great.

    Favorite Travel/Hike/Do everything short

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32

    What else can be said about these shorts...They are the most comfortable shorts I own. Great for traveling - built in belt, zippered cargo pocket, stretchy and breathable. Great for hiking, and look good enough to wear on a casual day.

    I literally wear these every day

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30

    I don't need to say much more than what I said above. These are the absolutely perfect summer shorts for all activities.

    Strong yet sensitive

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30x12

    Hard to say more than others already have on these versatile shorts. The defining feature is the fabric - stretchy for supreme mobility yet surprisingly tough. Easily moves from trail to town. I am a huge fan of the offset integrated belt, really thoughtful detail. The 12 inch inseam hits me right below the kneecap. These will become your go-to shorts for anything outdoors!

    The OG hiking and camping Shorts!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 31x10

    If there were 10 stars I would give these bad boys 12. Seriously, figure out your size and buy every color, you can thank me later. They fit very true to size in the waist, and with a short or long inseam you can dial in a super solid fit for your liking. Personally I am a shorter guy, and these in the 10" option have a perfect above knee length in the leg.

    The 4-way stretch fabric that Prana uses for these as well as so many other great styles is simply bomber. This stuff stretches with you, feels great to the touch, sheds dirt or water like a champ, and looks great while doing so. Did I mention the fabric was Bomber?

    Climb in them, summit summer 14ers in them, wade your local stream in them, and then meet your boys for well deserved cold brews in style.

    In summary the Stretch Zion Short is pretty awesome; buy them, conquer the world in comfort and style.

    The OG hiking and camping Shorts!!

    I have 6 pair

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33

    They are the best shorts you can put your legs into. Don't have a bathing suit? No worry these will work. Want to have that extra pizza slice? 4-way strech! Fun colors, stylish for being so casual. Highly recommend!

    only short i wear

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    I am in love with the stretch zion material. If it is climbing up rocks, or just going out around town these look great, feel great, and perform like champs. Well designed pockets with zippers for phones and such. I prefer the 12 inch inseam to protect the world from my man thigh. Don think just buy they are perfect. If you want a more casual version the brions are the same feel just less alpine inspired.

    comfortable!

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

    Love these shorts. I really appreciate pants/shorts that don't require a belt when hiking. I find belts to be bulky and infrequently have the right snugness with them. These shorts eliminate that need and are great thus far.

    Unanswered Question

    I've got a pair of Larges from an earlier version. What size corresponds well to that? I wear a 34 - 36 depending on the pants (there is lots of variation these days).

    Unanswered Question

    color?
    I ordered a pair in the indigo color and they look just like the blue ridge color from the photo. Are there two colors of blue, because mine are not indigo?

    I love my size medium Zions, and they fit perfectly, but now they've gone to numerical sizing....do I want a 32 or 33 waist in the new regime?

    I have the Prana Stretch Zion pants (love em) in small and they're still a little big, have to cinch the belt a little. I normally wear 30x30 pants, just wanted to know if the XS shorts would be TOO small. Any ideas?

    Are any of the pockets zippered and if so, which ones? Is the belt removable?

    The left side pocket is zippered (twice, actually, one facing up and one facing front - which is handy depending on if you are sitting or standing). The belt is not removable but it's very small and only shows in the front. Completely unobtrusive.

    Can an iPhone 6 plus fit in the lower leg pocket?

    Can someone help me figure out my size,...

    Can someone help me figure out my size, please? I wear the Prana Axiom jean in size 34 waist and 34 inseam. Some folks say these run large and some say these Zion shorts run small...



    Can someone help me out? Do I need a Medium or a Large?



    Thanks!!

    Kurt. Another Kurt here. I wear the Axiom 34 x 34 and the Theorem 34 x34. I have two pair of the Zion shorts, and both are Large. Fit the same as the 34 x 34 jeans. Measured the waist band with a tape measure, and they were identical +/- 0.25".

    Just received a pair in Medium (my waist measures 33in over my underwear) and they are clearly too big. I can fit 2-3 finger widths in between but I can make them fit with the nifty built in belt. Is it worth exchanging for the a Small? The sizing chart shows a two inch difference in the waist. If it matters the Prana Mojo Mediums I ordered fit me perfectly. Thanks!

    I wear a 28-29 short/jean. Will the small fit me? It's SO hard finding climbing clothing for my size!

    Mrwp269247,

    I know your pain.

    I too have problems not just with climbing clothing, but with basically all clothing, as my waist sits right at that 28-29in mark.

    That being said, I would go with the XS, I think the S would still be a bit too large for your waist, and you would probably have issues with the fit, as well as making them stay on while on the wall.

    I've included a size chart I found on prAna's website, and according to them, you want to take your waist measurement and subtract 2" from that to determine what "prAna size" to get.

    I notice that BC doesn't have any of that size in stock currently, so I would recommend chatting with a gear rep to see if they can find out when they will be receiving more sizes of the XS, if you do decide to go that route.

    Good luck, hope this helps.

    How true to sizing are these? I wear 31's...

    How true to sizing are these? I wear 31's in most shorts/pants. The sizing chart shows S to be 30" whereas M is 32-33". Obviously, I fall in between. Don't want too baggy but I don't want my range of motion restricted either. Any help would be appreciated.

    I wear a size 38" or XL in Kuhl, Outdoor Research,Mountain Hardwear and Patagonia. I just bought a pair of these in XL and although they fit, they're tighter than all others I have. I'm going to exchange for an XXL or more likely O.R. Ferrosi shorts which fit perfectly at XL.
