Vaude Farley Bermuda

These have an anti-UV treatment and a great cut, making them a good pair of lightweight, quick-drying shorts that easily earn their place in your pack. Their ‘boy scout’ factor is high, but they benefit from Velcro fastening side and back pockets and a cut that makes them ideal on the hill.
