    I have 3 pair of the Stretch Zion pants and I absolutely love them, so I figured i'd give the shorts a go and they were just as great as I knew they would be. So comfortable, great stretch fit, love the built in belt, and they fit super true to size. Overall everything that I always expect from Prana because they make such great apparel, give them a shot you will not be disappointed!

    • 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

    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.

    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 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".

    Unanswered Question

    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!

    Best Answer

    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.

    Hey David,



    Even the if medium is a bit loose, these have an integrated belt that will allow you cinch down the short to whatever size you need, without looking weird. I have these shorts/pants and it's all I wear year round. I love them. You won't be dissapointed.

    What is the color like on the charcoal? This site shows a black color, another site shows a lighter gray color. Thanks for any responses.

    I have a pair, they like Matt says, they are Not black but a darker grey. It's actually a cool color, just picked up a 2nd pair. But definitely Not black, very dark grey. Would love to see-em in Black too. Great shorts, awesome shorts.

    They are a darkish grey. Here is the color on the pants version. Same shade though. It seems a bit lighter than it normally is because of the lighting. Sorry, I'm a lousy photographer. Hope this helps though .
