So I love these shorts. I use them to Golf, Hike, Climb and work. they are super light weight. Water just beads right off them and they are breathable. You don't feel like you are wearing a board short because they don't cling or suffocated the skin. They dry fast and keep you dry and the length is stellar I don't mind showing off leg but not too much. On me it hits about 5" above the knee when standing. I love prana and this short is no exception either! I highly recommend them to any active lady. I have the Black Flora color and it is adorable. I am 5'4" with a 25 waist and the XS fits perfectly!
