Men's Wadi Rum Pants - Short


The pinnacle pant choice for hot weather, harsh climate, and dry desert climbing
FIT: Standard fit
COLOR seaweed
SIZE: 38
Infinite Guarantee
Inspired by the steep, remote rock walls of southern Jordan, the new Wadi Rum Collection includes feature-packed pieces that fit in just as nicely on the crux of a climb as they do in the director's chair. Purpose-built for climbing and detailed for trail-to-town versatility, the Wadi Rum Pants and Shorts use a durable Cordura nylon, spandex, and cotton blend to match the real-world ruggedness of the Middle Eastern routes from which it was named. A gusseted crotch adds extra mobility, while a standard fit and lightweight construction keeps the wearer cool and comfortable with whatever the next pitch throws their way.

My go-to summer pants


I bought these same pants in the khaki color over a year ago and I love them so this year I got a second pair. I work in a casual office environment where we are not allowed to wear shorts in the summer but we don't have to wear dress pants. These pants keep me relatively cool in the summer months and breathe well. The pant legs roll up easily for bike commuting with them as makeshift capris rolled up to just below my knees. Great for hiking and biking and my active lifestyle outside of work as well. They are very comfortable and have plenty of pockets making them a great choice for traveling. They've been with me to 6 different countries so far! They also dry out relatively quickly as well considering how breathable they are. They are not water or wind resistant. My only complaint is that the waistline on my khaki pair has absorbed a lot of the coloring from my black leather belt and from my black backpack.



Great pant.


Great pant for being out in the great outdoors!

Great material, good climbing pant.


Climbing, biking, wearing, everything. Even took a yoga class in them and they were fine. (Wish they had a waist adjustment thingy, though.)



Great pants!


Great pair of pants, but the only (slight) con would be the brightness of the green on the pants. haha!! I know it is petty, but they are quit green; however, I still wear them and it will take a few months for them to fade to a "weathered" green. BUT I love my pants and I love my Outdoor Research clothing, gear, and hats!

My New Favorite Pants


Ditched all my other pants for these. Fit me perfect.

Virginia Beach, VA


I won't buy again...


I loved the old OR pants (Deadpoints (which they don't make anymore) and Ferrosi). Having had about 10 pairs in those varieties thy felt true to size, the OR Wadi Rum pants miss the mark: weird fit, weird cut, too light, and not durable. I'd pass on these if I were you.

With the wadi rum pants, is there a difference in the crotch/pant rise between the short and regular? These pants are great, but 3/4" long in the pant rise... they should sit more on the hips and less on the waist.


david, no difference in the crotch rise but I will send your thoughts up to our design team to consider on coming versions!
