Designed and refined for the core trail runner who loves to go long, the Strider Pro Shorts are breathable and flash-drying with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
Over alpine switchbacks and under redwood canopies, wherever spectacular trails lead, these shorts follow. their Strider Pro Shorts carry what you need for a full day of mountain running, thanks to 4 overlapping, stretchy-mesh back hip pockets (2 on each side). An additional card-sized, stretchy center-back pocket closes securely with a zipper. The pockets lie flat and won’t flap when empty, and are durable and stretchy enough to expand generously to hold everything from energy gels to a Houdini Jacket. A fast-drying 100% polyester micro dobby forms the body while the side panels (on outer thighs only) use a highly breathable, 100% polyester mesh. Side splits promote airflow and the open-knit 100% polyester crepe liner (with Polygiene® permanent odor control) dries fast, weighs little and breathes freely. Brushed elastic lines the improved, lower-bulk waistband and the sturdy drawcord exits externally for enhanced comfort. With a reflective logo on the left hem, a locker loop for hang drying and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. 5" inseam with 2" split.
