Rab Vertex Shorts

Colour: Strata
Size: X-Large

The Vertex Shorts are a lightweight climbing and trekking short made of Matrix SWS fabric, the same stretchy sun-protective fabric found in the amazingly versatile Rab Boreas Pull-On. They are light, quick-drying, comfortable, and offer surprising durability for their weight. The Vertex features 3 zippered pockets along with more climbing-specific features like a double-snap waistband closure for security and articulated knees for freedom of movement. An ideal mountain short for hikers, backpackers, and climbers alike.
