The Faro shorts are a super stretchy softshell short (try saying that quickly!). Ideal for active pursuits, when trousers would just get in the way, but you still need a technical feature set to see you through.
Whether you’re out on the bike, trekking through the Alps or enjoying some hot rock climbing somewhere exotic, the Faro fit the bill. Cut just above the knee, the high UPF fabric will prevent sun burnt thighs from ruining your day out, and the fabric stretch will let you move pretty much any way your body will let you!
There are plenty of pockets to stash your stuff. On the front - 2 YKK zipped hand pockets, one of which has a clip loop sewn in. On the thigh a zipped pocket with an internal pocket (fits iPhone). On the rear there is another zipped pocket.

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
