Lafuma Roots Shorts

Even with shorts on, moisture control is important on the hill and these feature an airmesh system to move sweat away from the body for rapid drying. They’re anti-bacterial, with a sun protection factor of UPF 50 and a mid-thigh cut ideal for walkers. (Women’s Explorer shorts also available.)
