As the sun makes more frequent appearances in the sky and the weather warms up, the mind turns to outdoor activities. This might be camping, hiking, cycling or simply enjoying walking a little more often. Whatever the activity, the right shorts are crucial for enjoyment and comfort. Here are four styles that cover the most important activities of the summer – the workout, outdoor activities, swimming and hiking to mention just a few.
Condor Celex Workout Shorts
The Condor Celex Workout Shorts offer the balance of comfort and performance that comes from using four-way stretch material. The material also has a Micro Ripstop finish that makes the shorts more durable and long lasting. Perfect for outdoor activity, the material is both breathable and moisture wicking with a tie closure at the front for a secure fit regardless of the activity undertaken. The shorts have an 11-inch inseam length and zippered pockets for those essentials such as keys or smartphone.
Brandit Savage Vintage Shorts
The Brandit Savage Vintage Shorts are the classic cargo short style with two regular front pockets, two rear pockets with both flaps and press studs and two side cargo pockets. There are even two small pockets on each of the lower legs and a small zip pocket on the lower right leg. The shorts are made with 100% cotton while the breathable lining uses polyester and cotton. The result are shorts that are extremely practical, have that vintage look and are very comfortable.
Pentagon Hippocampus Swimming Shorts
The Pentagon Hippocampus Swimming Shorts feature a quick drying polyester material that makes them ideal for camping trips or holidays where you can simply lay them out in the sun to dry. The material has a velvet finish and there is a fishnet inner lining. Triple stitching at stress points ensures the swim shorts are durable and there are front and back pockets with inner linings to store essentials when out of the water.
Helikon Outdoor Tactical Shorts
The Helikon Outdoor Tactical Shorts 8.5″ are part of the Outdoor Tactical Line produced by Helikon and are based on their top selling pants from the same range. They have an articulated, anatomical cut with breathable and lightweight material that makes them ideal for a host of outdoor activities. They are popular with law enforcement and military users and have an elastic waist with a Velcro fastener to ensure comfort. There is a range of pockets and the exterior has a DuPont Teflon coating for waterproofing.
Choosing the right shorts
The great thing about these four examples of shorts styles is that they easily interchange. You can wear the swim shorts to go swimming then once they have dried, go for a hike in them. The vintage combat shorts look great when you are walking the dog and just as great meeting friends for a coffee or a playdate with the kids. Having quality shorts means that whatever the occasion, you have the clothes ready to step up for the job while keeping you cool and comfortable at all times.
