Add some energy to you summer hiking trip by leaving the trailhead in a pair of comfortable, durable Outdoor Research Women's Kinetic Shorts. Their DWR-coated Schoeller nylon fabric stretches with you as you hike, and it dries quickly if you should feel the need to take a dip in a backcountry lake. Outdoor Research gave the Kinetic Shorts a Lycra-gusseted fly and lace waist for added comfort and style in the hills and around town.
