Excellent shorts for climbing and hiking.


  • High-quality material
  • Comfort
  • Breathability
  • Doesn't restrict movement
  • Durable

I have the Renegade in both the Shorts and Pants versions, and I primarily wear them climbing and hiking.  The stretchy, light fabric is what sets these apart from everything else I've ever worn.

They are very comfortable, and easy to move in, which is the primary reason I purchased these. The pocket options are great as well, especially with the side pocket that zips shut. I've put these through a beating in all kinds of conditions and terrain, and the aren't showing much wear, even after 2 years. 

I have the charcoal/gray color, which looks great.
