Lightweight, everyday shorts for traveling, trail and around-town adventures made of recycled stretch nylon with 50+ UPF sun protection and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
You can throw some serious bushwhacking, grovely offwidths and miscalculated stream crossings at these shorts and they’ll still look unfazed back at the pub. their lightweight Quandary Shorts are built with a quick-drying blend of 94% stretch-woven nylon (62% recycled) and 6% elastane that takes hard use and bounces back for more. Made for the kinetics of backpacking and travel, the versatile fabric stretches, resists moisture with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and provides 50+ UPF sun protection. The curved waistband provides a contoured fit at the hips to keep your shorts from migrating downward when you’re high-stepping upward, and a gusseted crotch lets you move without restraint. Pockets: two in front, two in back, a stealth coin pocket and a zippered right-thigh pocket for security. 12" inseam.
