This lightweight polyester pant stretches enough for heel-hooking boulder junkies and features a gusseted crotch for a comfortable but crazy day in your harness. As you roast in the open sun, the breathable fabric vents your covered parts so you don't have anything else going on in your head while you send.
With 4-way mechanical stretch, there is no movement the Men's Outdoor Research Express Shorts won't accommodate. Breathable, super light fabric provides comfort by allowing body heat to escape and sweat to evaporate quickly without ever feeling clammy. Whether a hot climb takes you high into the desert sky or mind-clearing trail run winds you through humid forest, these shorts will be so comfortable you won't give them a second thought after putting them on.
