An Amazing Product!

This is one of the best shorts I've ever worn. The fabric is soft and comfortable and yet durable. On the right lower thigh pocket, there's a smaller pocket for a phone. The overall design is very pleasing and professional. I highly recommend buying this product. It's well worth your money. It also comes included with a belt and a plastic holder that goes over the pant waist so you can hook the shorts anywhere. These will also fit boys of the age of 12 and up. The pants will be a little loose but tightening the included belt will do the job.

  • 88% Polyamide


  • 100% Polyester cationic

How are the dark gray and brown models eco-designed?

For the dark gray and brown versions of the shorts, we used a bulk-dyeing process called "dope dyeing". This process incorporates the color pigments from the initial thread manufacture to reduce water consumption. As a result, we reduced the carbon emissions by 31.5% for the dark gray version and by 21.7% for the brown version.

Hybrid structure

Shorts designed with 2 different materials: - a durable fabric (7.3 oz/m²) on the areas that need protection from abrasion (seat). This fabric also has stretch properties. This gives you plenty of freedom of movement. - a lightweight and breathable fabric (4.4 oz/m²) on the rest of the shorts.


2 zipped hand pockets 1 zipped pocket on the left thigh 1 pocket with a flap on the right thigh and 1 phone compartment. Shorts sold with a belt.

Sizing information

Straight cut with stretch fabric used where needed to guarantee a high level of comfort on the move. Choose your usual size. Inside leg 11.7" in size L. Hem width: 10.3" in size L.
