Comfortable, functional, and hardwearing, these all-mountain shorts are perfect for cooling off on your scrambles and hut-to-hut treks. Designed to survive whatever the mountains throw at you, they’re built with a durable yet lightweight Matrix™ double weave fabric, which is fast-drying and offers great stretch and mobility. The result is a versatile short that keeps you comfortable in hot weather and gives you the freedom to explore over rocky alpine terrain.

The part-elasticated waistband with snap closure offers outstanding flexibility and comfort, while low profile belt loops give you the option of further customising the fit. Multiple zipped pockets are perfect for keeping your small valuables secure, including two hand pockets, a thigh pocket, and a hidden rear pocket.

The Torque Mountain Shorts have a classic design that will take you from your first hikes to sun-baked climbs.
