Room for improvement

    Cons:
    Shallow pockets , no zippered back pocket
    Pros :
    Comfy

    Bought Another Pair

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34x12

    Perfect: Lightweight, some stretch, fits well. I typically don't pay much for shorts but I had to go back and get another pair after wearing these for a day on an assignment in Florida shooting for a short film.

    Put them on and went "Aaahhh"

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 40/12

    Very comfortable, and with plenty of room in the thighs where I am perhaps heavier than usual. The 12" length seems good for using a harness with; the 10" length would be good for casual wear. Got the 12"s, going to get a pair of the 10"s shortly (no pun intended).

    Solid Short

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    Have used these shorts a few times indoors, since it isn't quite short weather outside at the moment. I love the loose fit through the thighs and the stretch in the material, I don't feel nervous about tearing the seams when stretching my legs on big legs. Comes with a built in waist strap that can be adjusted to tighten or loosen the waist line, but also has belt loops so a belt can be added if you prefer that route or for added style. I can't wait for the warmer weather so I can test these out on the trails.

    Great hiking shorts -- sizing a bit meh

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 28x10

    A note on the sizing, since that's the only real reason this wasn't a 5-star review: I'm a pretty short guy, so sometimes even a 28" waist can be a bit large -- the Stretch Zion are that way on me. The length ends right around the knee.

    Apart from fit, though, the shorts are really awesome hiking pants. They're durable and seem to breathe pretty well. The cargo pockets -- also a taste thing -- I'm not a huge fan of, but I'm happy enough to have found a pair of shorts that fit decent enough and that don't look out of place once I'm back in town.

    Legendary

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

    I pretty much live in the Stretch Zion short in the summer months. They are comfortable right out of the bag with enough stretch to allow plenty of movement.

    Fabric is breathable and the small crotch vents help keep things regulated down south on hot summer days. The integrated belt offers on-the-fly adjustment and the pockets handle all my daily carries with ease.

    Awesome shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32

    Easily the best shorts I own for hiking, climbing or pretty much anything. Stretchy, breathable and comfortable. I'll definitely be getting another pair.

    Awesome Multi-Use Shorts

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

    I’ve used these shorts to hike, run, workout at the gym and ride my mountain bike with padded liner under them. They’re light, stretchy and comfortable. Easy to care for, too.

    Just like the pants but short

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

    Just as reliable and comfortable as the stretch Zion pant in a short version. These are my go to for any outdoor endeavor.

    The Only Shorts I Wear Now

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

    I'll just say that these shorts are outstanding. They are now the only shorts I wear and I have three pairs. The waste is amazing with the integrated belt, which is really incredible. The stretch fabric, length and look can't be beat. It's all about comfort for me, and so I go no further than these.

    Great

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

    Great shorts. Very comfy. Definitely reccomend for hiking and everyday use.

    Definitely the new go to.

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

    New go to hiking, and board shorts for the husband. I'm pretty sure they are all he would wear if he could.

    Good but...

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

    I love the shorts for climbing, hiking on hot days but the pocket material is pretty crumby. After two weeks the right pocket developed a hole which I didn't catch. The pocket didn't catch my new iPhone7 either which apparently went right through and is now lost forever. Result - very expensive pair of shorts...

    New Favorite Shorts

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

    I gave these to my Uncle as a birthday gifts and he absolutely loves them!! He has been eyeing these shorts for a while so I decided to get them for him. He loves them because they are a stretchy material, making them very comfortable, but also still look like nice shorts. He says "They can transition from a coffee shop to my bike with no problems." He also loves all the pockets on him.

    They sizing was true to size. I got his waist size, and he wanted the shorter inseam. They were a perfect length on him.

    These will go a ton of use! They are all he has been wearing since I gave them to him. They are the perfect summer short for casual or adventure use!

    Stretch Zion

      200 5-star reviews can't be wrong. These are my husbands favorite shorts. I think he has 3 pairs. He wears them for everything: canyoneering, mountain biking, and even extreme-gardening. Highly recommend.

      New favorites

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Size Bought: 32x10

      These are my husband’s new favorite shorts. His words:
      •Great material
      •Excellent fit
      •Love the built in belt
      •Perfect amount of pockets

      His Favorite Shorts

        My husband refuses to wear anything else in the summer. These fit super well, wick quickly, and look great. He has 4 pairs!

        Love 'em

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

        If I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times, Prana's Stretch Zion fabric is the best. I bought these as a gift for my dad because I love every pair that I have. Super light and comfortable but very durable and they dry FAST. Great for almost every outdoor activity but stylish enough to wear everyday.

        So comfortable

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

        After liking the first pair I bought so much I purchased 3 more in different colors and now it's all I wear in the summer. The pocket options, fit, material, and the integrated belt make it my go to shorts.

        How to Measure:
        For best results, take measurements over your underwear.

        Waist:
        Measure around the natural waistline.
        Inseam:
        Grab your favorite pair of jeans/pants. Measure the inseam of these pants starting at the crotch seam to the bottom of the pant leg (round to the nearest 1/2 inch).
        Sleeve Length:
        With your hands on your hips, measure from the center of your back neck, across your shoulder and down the outside of your arm to the wrist bone.
