Great shorts - order up a size
These shorts are a nice, lightweight fabric with a flattering fit. They do run quite small in the waist, I recommend ordering up a size or two.

Awesome shorts but fit is on smaller side
I got a size 31 which for PrAna typically is perfect for me; these fit more like a size 30. By the time the shorts were delivered, a larger size wasn’t available anymore so I’ll keep the pair I got and stay away from extra dessert. Fabric is light and stretchy but seems like it’ll last, too. Blueish color is cool.

Nice style and fabric. More attention is needed.
I have these shorts in two colors which I really like. With that said, they could use more attention on the following:
Fit: They fit slightly higher on the waist which I'm ok with since this fabric is really nice and is very forgiving in many ways. I'm a true size 32 waist. First purchase I bought a size 33 as the 32 were too small. Second purchase I went up another size to a 34 to wear comfortably.
Quality: I had to re-enforce (both pairs) the main button closure.

Airy shorts
These are the lightest shorts I've owned. Very comfortable and actually has a cellphone side pocket that will hold a big phone!

Great material and so comfy!
Overall I love these shorts. The material is very comfortable and also water resistant and stretchy. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the shorts are tight in the waste/hip area on me. I have larger legs so this is a common issue for me but wish these would fit a bit looser in that area.

GO 1 SIZE UP - I SECOND THAT!
I tried a pair of these on recently and loved the material and cut, but I agree with the previous reviewer that they are a bit tighter in the waist than other Prana products. I own several pairs of Brion and Stretch Zion shorts and pants (as well as the Vargas shorts which are a similar material to these but different cut) and the waist on all my Prana bottoms fit great in 32, but when I tried these on in 32 they were a bit too tight. I tried on a 33 and they fit much better.

Go 1 Size Up
Short is great - very flexible, no movement inhibition. The drawstrings are easy to tuck into them to give them a more formal look.

I'm 6'4, ~195lbs, athletic build. I ordered a size 32 in these and the zion chino shorts - zion's fit perfectly, but the ansa's would've been better in a 33. Still fits, just tight and pulling on the button quite a bit.

ANSA Short fits just right
They fit me just right. I wear 32/32 in Bridger Jeans and these shorts are on the money. Stretch fabric helps in case I need a little extra room in the waist. I love 'em!
