Water-resistant and quick drying, the Calient shorts are ideal for summer alpine use in warmer conditions. Made from lightweight Matrix™ fabric, the UPF 30+ protects from the sun while the DWR treatment repels water during light showers.
Designed to have a slim fit, the Calient Shorts have a double snap waistband closure, zipped fly and a removable belt with low profile buckle. A single zipped thigh pocket and two zipped hand pockets will hold the essentials on a short hike, with the left-hand pocket also doubling as a stuff sack.
Rab's Calient Shorts, are a well featured and feeling softshell trekking short at a reasonably low weight. The pants have 3 zipped pockets for security, 2 hand pockets and one on the thigh. There is a removable belt if want to save some weight.
They are made from the fabric Matrix™ which is a tried and tested thin softshell fabric to protect you from the elements.
It is worth noting they are a slim fit I found them a more of a squeeze at my usual Rab size.
