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

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.

We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
