Board-short simplicity and style in a true hiking short. Sometimes less is more. We’ve streamlined this hiking short to the bare essentials by doing without a hard waistband seam, zipper or any other bulky hardware. The result is a simple, functional short that feels great, especially under a pack. UPF 50 fabric blocks out UV rays.
Low-profile simple tie waist
Two hand pockets
One zipper pocket at side leg with key clip
Seams rotated away from pressure points for comfort under a pack
Great Lightweight Short Bought these a few weeks ago and can't wait to use them more this summer. They are a good lightweight short and I like the drawstring waist. Basically feels like a board short, but it's nice to have a zippered pocket on the side along with two hand pockets. Can be used for hiking or hanging at the beach! I'd recommend going up a size instead of down if you are in between sizes. May 23, 2013
