Men's Ferrosi Shorts - 8" 2021

Final Sale

Not too short, not too long, these are basically the Golidlocks of hiking shorts with one exception...they’re even better than “just right.” A warm-weather favorite from our award-winning Ferrosi Collection, these softshell shorts are everything you need in outdoor bottoms. DWR-waterproofed, breathable, and well-designed, down to the last detail, these men’s hiking shorts are ready for any adventure. They’ll feel great under your pack’s hip belt and also have a conveniently placed zip pocket so you don’t have to worry about sacrificing your phone to the river gods every time you get into your canoe. They’re also durable enough to put up with squeezing through slot canyons or bushwhacking through thorny thickets (have fun with that). Plus, they’re lightweight, UV-protective, made with all the stretch you need to have full freedom of movement. Basically, the only thing these pants can’t do is protect you from poison oak. Once we figure that out, we’ll let you know, but until then, count on these shorts to make all your warm-weather adventures much more excellent.
