This is my second pair of Zion shorts and man do I love them. They are true to size and are very durable. I have used them on long hikes and as daily home use. If I every wear these out I will buy them all over again.

4 Times charm
I bought a pair of these for my husband. He loved them so much, I bought him another pair. My son thought they looked great, so he bought a pair. He loves them so much he bought this pair. They both live in these shorts. They fit well, wash up great, and dry very quickly (on the line). I wish there were a few more colors, but the ones that are offered are very nice. Could dress up or down.

My favorite climbing shorts
I own three pair of these shorts and two pair of the long pant version. These are my favorite shorts to climb in after the Arcteryx Rampart shorts. They are durable and just stretchy enough. They dry quickly and they are super comfortable. I recently bought another pair in2011 (after the redesign in 2010) and the 2011 fabric seems slightly different. I'm not sure if drying them in the dryer for a year has caused it to lose some of the strech or what. The newer fabric seems slightly stretchier although the label indicates the same material content.

Just got back from rock climbing wearing these shorts. I like the added protection because the shorts are longer than most. Was concerned that the sharp rock I was climbing around would tear up the shorts, but they did very well. The adjustable belt is nice because it runs the whole waist so you don't have that bunching in the front. They are a little pricey, but if they continue to hold up to the rugged environment I put them through without a scratch, they are worth it.
