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

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...

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.

    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.

      Is this my third or fourth pair now?

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32 / 12

      These are pretty much the only shorts I buy now. Just got them in the (light) grey. While these show the dirty more easily, they still wash up great.

      Wore almost every day during beach week

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32x10

      These were super comfortable, breathed well and didn't seem to get dirty or hold odors during a week at the beach. I've started wearing them on a regular basis now.

      Love them so Much I bought 2 of them!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 36 in

      The shorts are lightweight and very comfortable. The pockets are great in that one has a zipper and the others are deep. I don't wear a belt with these shorts as the fit is just right. I originally got a size 38 with 12 inch inseams, however they were too big on me so I purchased a size 36 with 10 in inseams - these fit perfectly and look good.

      Super Comfy.

      • Size Bought: 30x12

      This is the first time I have purchased these type of shorts, and I must say they are very comfortable. The only thing that I can say the cargo pocket could be a little larger.

      Excellent Shorts

        Super comfortable, and the fit is spot on. I fluctuate between a 32-34 inch waist, and the 33 size fit like a dream. Some of the most comfortable shorts I’ve ever worn. I bought them in 2 colors...charcoal & blue. Prana does it again!

        Comfy and durable

        They Stretch Zion short are my go to for pretty much any activity I'm doing from climbing to backpacking to canyoneering. They stretch and have a gusseted crotch so you'll never be held back from making your next move. The built in belt is great as I don't like wearing a belt under a harness or hip belt. When backpacking that comes in extra handy as you lose weigh along your trek. The Stretch Zion material is also quite durable and puts up well with abuse. Fit is true to size to slightly large. The stretchy material can make them fit a little on the large side so I size down slightly.

        Quit Searching....This IS the one!

        How do I know? I guarantee you that your boyfriend, son, husband, brother (in-laws), uncle, friend of a friend's wife's nephew, or dad will enjoy these Zion shorts.

        What is this stretch Zion material? It is everything you want it to be. Stretchy, durable, breathable, lightweight, while being casual! (Pictured is the 30X10 in the Mud color)

        Wear it to the gym, to go climb, to your hike, to Disneyland with your little brother in the middle of California's average 90 degree + weather, or to meet a legendary climber.

        Whoever it is, the person you are buying them for will appreciate it. YOU will appreciate them appreciating it. You champ, can give yourself a pat on the back for making a purchase that will last them a lifetime.
