These shorts are dressy enough for a job interview (at least any kind of job I’d ever care to have), yet stretchy, tough, and ready for whatever mountain rambles you can throw at these soft-shell shorts. 

The Exolite 210 stretch double weave fabric is the stuff of gods: comfortable and high-performing, these shorts dry fast and still feel good even in crazy hot temps that make your crotch feel like a sauna or monsoon summer downpours that will soak you to the bone. They come with four zipped pockets and feature an integrated belt that sits comfortably under a pack.
