Women's and men's shorts that go the extra mile

 

Backcountry backpacking trails aren't known for going easy on you. When the going gets tough, our trail shorts get tougher. Our durable shorts are more resilient than our standard board shorts or joggers. Water-resistant and water-repellent, you don't have to fear getting splashed when hiking beside a stream. In the summer sun, several of our shorts join our selection of sun protection clothing, offering coverage. Don't be afraid to stuff your pockets with baggies full of snacks, grab your water bottle, and head out all day. Your outdoor shorts can go just as long and hard as you can. And when the weather turns colder, reach for our equally durable hiking pants.

Match any pair of shorts with one of our other best sellers for the perfect outdoor outfit.
