How to choose the right hiking shorts?

To help you choose the hiking shorts that are right for you, take a look at the following criteria:
  1. Materials: Choose shorts made from lightweight, breathable materials such as nylon or polyester. These fabrics are moisture-wicking and quick-drying, which is essential for intense activities such as hiking.

  2. Strength and durability: Make sure your shorts are tough enough to cope with rubbing, branches or rocks. Look for reinforcements in the areas of greatest stress, such as the crotch and buttocks.

  3. Freedom of movement: Shorts must offer good freedom of movement to enable you to walk, climb or overcome obstacles without constraint. Choose a model with a loose fit or stretch panels for greater flexibility.

  4. Comfort: Choose shorts with an adjustable or elastic waistband for a personalized fit and good support. Flat or displaced seams prevent chafing and rubbing against the skin.

  5. Pockets: If you need to carry small items such as keys, phone or compass, look for shorts with practical, secure pockets. Make sure they're well positioned and easily accessible.

  6. Sun protection: If you're planning hikes in intense sunlight, opt for shorts with built-in sun protection, usually indicated by a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor).

  7. Length: Choose the length of your shorts according to your preferences and the weather. Shorter shorts offer greater freedom of movement, while longer shorts can offer extra protection against the elements or insects.

With these criteria in mind, you should be able to find the hiking shorts that best suit your needs and hiking style.

Men's and women's shorts?

Morphological differences between the sexes, particularly in the pelvis, can influence the choice of shorts. However, it's also possible that some men have a wider pelvis, and some women a narrower one. Therefore, it's a good idea not to limit your search to your gender when looking for shorts that will fit you perfectly. Don't hesitate to explore the options available in the other department, as you may find a model that better suits your morphology and offers you greater comfort during your outdoor activities.

What type of shorts?

When choosing from our range of shorts, there are several criteria to take into account. Apart from size and number of pockets, the main difference lies in chafe resistance. Shorts specifically designed for trekking are reinforced on the areas most exposed to friction, such as the buttocks. However, these reinforcements make trekking shorts heavier than conventional hiking shorts.

As for fabric, cotton shorts will be heavier and less breathable than synthetic shorts. If you're planning an intensive sports outing, it's best to opt for synthetic shorts that are lightweight and breathable. On the other hand, if you prefer the feel of cotton and are planning a more relaxed outing, you can opt for cotton shorts.

It's up to you to determine your specific needs: very light shorts that are easy to forget during effort, or heavier shorts that allow you to take many comfortable breaks on the rocks. Take these factors into account to choose the shorts that best meet your expectations and offer you the best possible hiking experience.
