Haglöfs Climatic Rugged

Made from 100 per cent polyamide, these shorts have a really tough feel and come with the kind of cut that might roll off a high-quality lederhosen production line. Not as instantly breathable as others on offer, and we didn’t like the jeans-style front pockets, but they are ideal for spiffing Famous Five-style adventures on rockier ascents. (Women’s Mid Q Pocket shorts also available.)
