These shorts from Rohan are a good fit, with a double-button fastening for security. The elasticated waist adjuster has a fairly limited range, but the longer-cut legs are excellent. They don’t absorb water, yet are cool, breathable and wind resistant, with an SPF of 40+. The bellowed pockets take a map.
Verdict: Rugged shorts that won’t let you down. Dear, but worth every penny.
Features: Double-button fastening, adjustable waist, bellowed pockets
