Lightweight, unrestrictive and taking up the bare minimum of rucksack space, the Teleki Short has been designed for summer hillwalking, multi-day backpacking and alpine hiking.
- Tailored for freedom of movement with a neat cut and two-way stretch
- Perfect weight of material for summer UK and alpine walking
- Lightweight, packable and easy-care for multi-day trips
Many summer walking shorts are either too flimsy or too restrictive for the rough and tumble of proper hiking. For the Teleki Short we’ve chosen a hard-wearing yet exceptionally lightweight fabric that provides an unrestrictive two-way stretch for high-striding hillwalkers.
The articulated fit we’ve used is tailored for long days of leg-lifting: up hill, down dale, up hill, down dale, up... phew! We hate all that irritating flappery you can often get on gusty cols and airy ridges so we’ve also reduced any unnecessary excess material.
The Teleki Short are the ideal thickness for long summer days on the fells or the baking midday sun of Alpine walking holidays. Plus you can roll them up neatly into rucksacks and wash them through easily on multi-day trips.
Nylon doesn’t absorb any water into its fibres and, because of the weight of the fabric, it’s very fast-drying and great at wicking away sweat. It's also deceptively abrasion and tear resistant and the dense weave of the material makes the Teleki highly wind resistant.
“Because of the fabric we’ve chosen, we’ve managed to avoid using any extra chemical finishes on the Teleki. We didn’t feel a Durable Water Repellent was necessary for a summer walking trouser this fast-drying, and wicking finishes can often cause early-morning dew to spread up the trousers to your knees – not what you want first thing in the morning!” - Ronnie, Design Manager
