Wind River are swim-hike hybrid shorts; lightweight and quick-drying for multi-activity days.
They're perfect for spontaneous mid-hike swims, deep water soloing or working hard on hot summer days.
The drawcord waist adjustment keeps the shorts in place while swimming, with mesh-lined pockets that drain fast and won't inflate underwater.
Made for movement in and out of the water, with a hanging loop for drying them out after a rinse on multi-day trips.
The shorts have a zipped fly and a secure zipped rear pocket for valuables.
Amphibious, adventure-ready comfort.
Main fabric: 100% Polyester, 96gsm

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.
