When covering greater distances in summer, you need legwear that offers complete comfort and versatility. The Momentum Shorts are light and robust with a quick dry time and full freedom of movement.
From steep climbs up jagged peaks to traversing ridges, the Momentum Shorts are designed for covering greater distances at pace. Made from lightweight but durable Matrix™ double weave fabric they offer full freedom of movement when hiking, running or scrambling in the mountains. Treated with a DWR these shorts will repel water during light showers and dry quickly.
Features are stripped back with a simple elasticated waistband with drawcord adjustment, a zip pocket in back waistband and two hand pockets.
Rab's Momentum Shorts are a stretch woven short in lightweight Matrix single weave fabric, designed for active use in warm temperatures. The fabric choice and styling makes them incredibly versatile so could be used for anything from hiking to running.
They have kept the feature set simple, with two open hand pockets with mesh vents and one zippered pocket in the back of the waistband. The waistband is a little different to most, it's elasticated with an elastic drawcord adjustment, that when pulled can be put under a small fabric loop to the side of it to prevent it from sticking out. There's no fly on these shorts but the overall low bulk design means it will sit comfortably under a harness or hipbelt.
