- Appalachian Outdoors refers to the men's version

The problem with shorts is you need to change them every time you want to go river rafting or attend a funeral. Not anymore with the Patagonia Multi-Use Shorts. Hike the Appalachian Trail one day and then swim along The Great Barrier Reef the next-assuming you own a supersonic plane that can take you across the globe (all without changing shorts). These durable, supple shorts go from a press conference where you lie about hiking the Appalachian Trail to an afternoon of swimming with dolphins.
