These men’s shorts from Helly Hansen are slightly loose at the waist, but the quality webbing belt makes for easy adjustment. They are quite long in the leg, and the feel of the nylon/Lifa fabric is excellent. Cool and breathable, these are wonderful in dry conditions. They soak up rain easily, but the fabric still feels warm against your skin.
Verdict: A top summer short that will double for travelling and casual wear.
Features: Nylon/Lifa fabric, webbing belt, breathable
