I bought 2 pairs of the larges and they are killer. I've hiked, climbed, traveled, etc. in them and they've held up amazingly.
I'm 5'11" and usually wear 32s. The fit on the waist is a bit large and they're a bit longer and baggier than I prefer. Luckily they're adjustable. I'd probably try the mediums time. They have tons of great features.
Just one negative I can think of. The bottom pocket has a top zipper and side zipper to access the same pocket. I've lost things by not realizing the side zipper was open. Maybe it's useful for climbing or some situations but overall I'd say the side zipper is unnecessary.
The good...I really love the fit and the style of these shorts. They're short but not too short. Love the stretch in the material. Love the colors (I got the Vintage Blue). The materials is soft and super comfie. I usually where 32s and got the 32s and they were spot on.
The bad... These have the worst fly ever. There's a small gap below where the waistband ties but there's no velcro to completely close the fly--kind of like boxer shorts. It's really odd. I actually had somebody sew a piece of velcro there for me. Also, they're light colored and the material doesn't seem to clean very well. Granted, I took them on a river trip and got them pretty dirty but it seems that most board shorts would clean up better.
I'm 5'11 and 175lbs and usually wear a 32 but the 32s were a bit tight so I got the 33x32 which are just a bit loose in the waist. Fit through the legs is perfect if you prefer slim fit or skinny jeans like I do.
These are the most comfie pants for traveling, climbing, or just kicking around in the outdoors.
My only complaint is that they don't have anything to adjust the waist band so you may have to wear a belt if they don't fit tight enough. I've also got the Zion pants which have an adjustable waistband so I'm not sure why PrAna left this nice feature off the Brions. If they had the adjustable waistband, I'd give them 5 stars.
I bought two pairs of the exact same style and size (32). The black ones which were just a tad bit too tight but perfect in the length. The grey ones had plenty of room but were probably a good inch too long. super frustrating. Returned both pairs...
