JD Short...The perfect yoga short for me
I use these shorts for any / all yoga practices. To me, they are especially good for Ashtanga and any hot vinyasa classes or Bikram. There's no extra fabric to get sloppy, drippy or catch your feet while moving about. If you are averse to the feel of cycling shorts you probably wont like these, otherwise they are the perfect short for yoga. They just need to expand beyond black. Certainly if womens leggings can have rainbows and unicorns and mermaid scales, the men can get blue. Or a stripe... Just saying.

The best
The first pair I purchased on the recommendation from a fellow Ashtangi who stated that these were the best (after a led practice one Sunday morning) I liked my first pair so much that I purchased five more pair to have one for everyday of the practice week. (I prefer to wash prior to wearing again, though I hear they dry quickly and sufficiently as well) The fit is good, snug, but not revealing (you know what I mean) No extra loose fabric to get in the way or be adjusted in obtaining the pose. I have tried many, but will stay with these as long as they continue to make them. Have had one pair for 3 years now and still going strong.

The Perfect Yoga Short
I am an ashtanga yogi with a regular practice. I have tried every possible short and had settled in wearing mostly shorts from a popular retailer for my practice. However, those tend to soak through and get in the way. These JD prAna shorts are perfect for yoga. They are "close-fitting" without being tight and squeezing the privates. They breathe. They move with you. I would love to see them in other colors.

PS Oh... The stitching on the inside (in blue) is quite fun... you may want to consider doing so on the outside of the black shorts for added interest. :)

The best I have found
I use the JD Short in all my Bikram yoga classes. When I first started practicing a few years back, I looked around the studio for what others were wearing. I saw a lot of options, from knee length baggy shorts to speedos. I think the JD Short strikes the right balance. They are short enough to allow for uninhibited movement but also long enough to feel comfortable modesty wise. The biggest selling point for me is that they don't distract me and let me focus on improving during class.

great short--sizing a little tricky
These shorts are pretty much as described. I like that the main component of the fabric is recycled polyester and that it is made in the USA. I use them for teaching and practicing yoga. I found the sizing a little tricky. I think these run a bit larger than most comparable athletic wear. Here's my experience with sizing. I am 5'8" tall and weigh 155 pounds--usually I am on the cusp between small and medium. Usually either one would be ok for me. I bought the JD knickers in medium, but they tend to slide down pretty quickly. So I bought the small for the shorts. They work fine, but I think I would like them even a bit tighter. I think they might be a problem for a really slim guy. All that being said, I still love wearing them. I would buy more if they came in dark maroon and deep forest green.

Best dude yoga shorts ever.
Best dude yoga shorts ever made. Period and the end.
But... we need more colors, please! Would buy one of each color made, if they existed. Thanks!

My favorite Ashtanga short
A great short for vigorous asana practice. Breathable and lightweight, but not overly revealing. Highly recommend to any Power, Ashtanga or Bikram practitioner looking for an all-around great asana practice short.

Comfortable but not baggy
My husband has a few pair of JD Shorts that he loves for Ashtanga practice. I borrowed a pair when we were on vacation and I couldn't find my bikini bottoms. The shorts were so comfortable that I ordered some for myself when we got home. prAna should market these to women and add basic colors like navy blue and heather grey. I've been wearing my own pair as pajama bottoms, but when winter is finally over, I'll be wearing mine to the yoga studio too.

Product fits as advertised.
Product useful in yoga. Sizing true. Stretches with body. Solid construction. Washes well, air dries quickly.

Great fit, hope you like black
The fit is great. The belt doesn't cinch up like most shorts, but it doesn't need it. I was surprised how well they stay in place. They're very comfortable.

They're a little pricey, but I guess you get what you pay for. After many washings, they still feel like new.

The logo is small, subtle, dark, and out of the way (unlike some brands I could mention). These are perfect for the stage, where you need something that is inconspicuous, and lets you move, and is fitted so you can add other elements of a costume over it.

The only downside is that black is the only color option offered. I went looking for this but in another color today (it's oddly difficult to find this on Prana's webpage), and was disappointed that black is it. If you're only going to offer one color, black is the right choice, but I really wish there were other options available. For the stage, it'd be useful to have light gray, dark gray, and then maybe some fun bright colors just for kicks.
