Sizing advice

These shorts have a straight cut that is neither too close, nor too loose fitting. Its length is above the knee. The material in the shorts contains spandex. If you are between sizes, we recommend choosing the smaller size. When you buy them, or after washing, the shorts may seem tight, but they relax a little with use (like jeans containing spandex).

What have we done to reduce our environmental impact?

The main fabric on these pants contains 79% organic cotton. Since 2006, we have been using organic cotton, a relatively small market that currently accounts for just 0.4% of global cotton production. This cotton is cultivated without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. It preserves biodiversity and soil fertility, and reduces the risk of groundwater pollution.

Your opinion counts!

Thanks to your feedback, we have improved the design and concept of our NH500 shorts. In this new model, we have changed the component to add spandex (2%) to improve your freedom of movement. The component is also lighter. We have also changed the shape of the shorts and increased the depth of the pockets to limit the loss of objects. Finally, we have improved the cut of the shorts at the crotch.



Product testing

Our design team conceives, plans and designs Quechua products in France, at the foot of Mont Blanc. We test them in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and durable. The Forest of Fontainebleau, Brittany or Corsica for example. We walk on as many different footpaths as possible, in all weather conditions. This provides us with a great opportunity to discuss things, enabling us to obtain your feedback and prepare our future products!

We recommend that you store these shorts folded or on a hanger, in a dry place.
