The Ascendor Light Shorts are a lightweight Matrix double weave short with a slim fitting stretch waist band, perfect for summer climbing and long hot multi-pitch routes.

Rab says:

Our Ascendor Light Short is built for ultimate freedom on strenuous summer ascents. At 133gsm, the advanced two-layer Matrix™ softshell is the lightest double-weave stretch fabric we use. It comprises a tightly woven exterior for excellent abrasion resistance and weather protection. In tandem with the lofted internal layer, that helps wick the moisture away from your skin, keeping you comfortable when working hard on exposed rock. Built for lightweight mountaineering, summer climbing and long, hot multi-pitch routes, the diamond gusset makes best possible use of the fabric’s inherent stretch.

In addition to a rear pocket and pair of mesh-lined hand pockets with secure zips, the new pant uses tough twin-needle top stitching and a reinforced hem for extra durability on long, challenging days at the rockface.
