Description

Wind River are swim-hike hybrid shorts; lightweight and quick-drying for multi-activity days.

They're perfect for spontaneous mid-hike swims, deep water soloing or working hard on hot summer days.

The drawcord waist adjustment keeps the shorts in place while swimming, with mesh-lined pockets that drain fast and won't inflate underwater.

Made for movement in and out of the water, with a hanging loop for drying them out after a rinse on multi-day trips.

The shorts have a zipped fly and a secure zipped rear pocket for valuables.

Amphibious, adventure-ready comfort.

Designer‘s notes

"Making a pair of shorts that are at home both in and out of the water comes with some unique challenges. Little design details like plastic instead of metal snaps that won’t corrode, and a cheeky drying hang loop at the back are what sets these apart from regular hiking shorts. Plus the fabric selection that means they dry fast and the pockets drain easily instead of filling up with water (or air after that enthusiastic first dive in!)" - Ronnie, Design Manager
