These are extremely well-thought-out, rugged shorts that are lightweight and built for hill-walking and scrambling. Like everything from Páramo, they’re designed with moisture control in mind, using rapid-evaporation Parameta A fabric. These have plenty of secure pockets, jeans-style at the front (which may not appeal) and a variable hem.
