The Outdoor Research Rapid Short's stretch-woven polyester fabric breathes well, sheds water, and allows total freedom of movement for hiking, climbing, or biking. In fact, these Outdoor Research shorts even have a gusseted crotch to ensure nothing holds you back from cruising miles and miles of trail. The Rapid Shorts' low-profile elastic waistband eliminates pressure points when you wear it under your backpack's hip-belt.
