If you're out on the trail in the summer there's every chance that a pair of trail trousers aren't going to be what you're after. Even if they are moisture wicking, you may still feel a little bit of discomfort, especially if you're on the trail all day on a very hot day. This range of hiking and travel shorts are perfect to give your legs a little breathing space (and a bit of a tan) when you're on a long-haul jaunt up and down the mountains. Plus there's the extra joy of plenty of pockets where you can store your snacks and gadgets!
