Lowe Alpine Traveller Shorts

With a sun protection factor of UPF 50 (great for the bits they cover) and a faff-free design, this is a robust pair of shorts. Not as light as others we looked at, the extra weight comes from an elasticated waist and two zipped, secure pockets. They’re very comfy and a popular favourite. (Women’s High Trail shorts also available.)
