Up for anything.

From day hikes to down days in town, the Prana Men's Bronson Shorts will handle just about any aspect of your lifestyle. They're crafted from an organic cotton material that's triple-stitched through the seams for increased durability and blended with just a touch of stretch to boost mobility. And if that wasn't enough, Prana added a gusseted inseam so you can wear them to the climbing gym or to the crag in total comfort.

  • Casual shorts that can handle the crag or trail
  • Organic cotton canvas with stretch
  • Inseam gusset promotes mobility while climbing or hiking
  • Triple-stitched seams increase durability
  • Prana's standard fit with 11 inch inseam

Great all Around Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 36

I recommend these to someone in the market from a durable pair of shorts. I found them to be a little tight but NOT a deal breaker.

I absolutely love these shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34x9

I had heard great things about these shorts, so I decided to get a pair, and boy oh boy do they not disappoint! The material made out of them, which is great cotton, with just a little bit of spandex, makes it a great pair of shorts for any occasion. 10/10 would recommend! I ended buying another pair because of it!

Best Shorts Ever!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 32x9

I bought a pair of 32x9 charcoal and khaki, and they are both terrific. They blend comfort, quality and a ruggedly nice look, plus they're made of organic cotton, which is good for consumers, growers and the environment.

Memo to Prana - do not change the design/quality/build! I am frequently disappointed when companies unnecessarily change a good thing for no apparent reason and screw it up. Leave these as is - you have a winner!

TOO TIGHT !! YIKES

  • Size Bought: 35

I purchased 2 Prana shorts both 35 but this pair was Way Too Small
How can that be when the other fits perfect!!

PrAna

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 32*9

I love PrAna. They seem to hit and miss like do us all but when they hit, they hit. These are a hit. They are a little tight in the pockets for putting your hands in or mobility, you can feel the pressure when you try to climb but they stretch so you soon forget about it. Waist fits well, legs are tightish. Still love them though.

Awesome shorts!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got my boyfriend 2 pairs of these shorts and he absolutely LOVES them! The material is lightweight and stretchy. Whether we're climbing all day or just hanging out in the back yard these shorts are perfect!

Great Product!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 35X11

Excellent quality, as with all Prana items I've puchased! Buying several to replace my outdated cargo shorts, just like other reviewers.

New favorite shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 32x9

Ditto Francis Whitney's review, on all accounts.
Great shorts

Finally replaced my cargos

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 33x11

I dig these. I had my doubts about the tighter fit of these than my usual cargo shorts, but I move much better, and definitely climb better, in these than the loose fit I was used to. These are a tough-ish material with no stretch, but they move with you rather than stick to your legs. Plus, my lady says they look good on me. Hahahaha!

Strong yet sensitive

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

There isn't too much that I can add to the fray on these - they are indeed tough like work shorts - the cotton fabric is a tad stiff ( I like that) and definitely feels very durable. Seems like it will hold up well against rocks and other things adventures can bring. Now for the sensitive - Prana stuff is well known for mobility and these are true to form, super comfortable and with strategic stretch that won't restrict any movement.

Unanswered Question

x9" or x11"?
The sizing choices for Bronson shorts appear to include bot 9" and 11" inseams... but the description says the shorts come w/ 11" inseam... can you please clear up this inconsistency?
Thx,

Great shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 30X9

These shorts fit well and look great. The fabric is a little thicker with some stretch, which makes them a little better suited for activities that could rip or tear thinner material. The length of the 9 inch inseam is actually closer to 10 inches, but I didn't find that bothersome at all. Other than this, the sizing was true to size for me. I'm pretty short and wide, and these shorts work great for me..

Rock solid

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

I dig these shorts. They're comfortable, durable, and I like the way they fit.

Durable and stretchy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 28

I couldn't believe how heavy duty the fabric was when I put them on. I thought they would be rather constricting when trying to hike or climb, but I was very wrong. They allow for a full range of motion no matter where your legs are headed. Very well made like all Prana pieces, I expect these shorts to last my lifetime.

Absolutely loving these shorts. Great for casual walking around town but still incredible for camping, hiking, climbing, all the above. Super comfortable and a great fit.

Can you go wrong with anything by Prana?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 35x11

Another Prana purchase another amazing product. Love everything they make. Great quality, material, sizing...list goes on an on. I have yet to find anything by Prana I haven't loved. Probably why half of my closet is Prana. Get you some!

Great Quality Shorts

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

These shorts are good looking, made with super durable materials, have nice large pockets, and overall just rock! I highly recommend purchasing a pair. If you're looking for a classic, well styled short to wear during the spring, summer, fall - then look no further!

Classic.

    Classic Prana fit, classic quality, classic design. You really can't go wrong here. These are a great everyday short for spring/summer/fall.

    Second pair, probably gonna buy a third.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 38

    Fits perfect, usual high -end Prana quality and style.
    Runs true to size and accommodates folks with athletic builds.

    Classic Good Looking Shorts

      Great feel and fit, on par with all of my Prana clothing. Soft hand, yet durable fabric makes for a great ever day short. Highly recommend for anyone looking for their next favorite pair of shorts.
