These shorts tick all the boxes for a pair of trekking shorts. They are stretchy, giving you a good range of movement and not too tight on the upper legs. There are belt loops if needed, but they are slim fitting and it wasn’t required. They dry quickly, so sweat or a rain shower won’t make them uncomfortable. Once again, the pockets are frustratingly small, barely big enough for fingers let alone a wallet, phone or camera. They also open from the top rather than the side so you can’t put your hands in them comfortably. There is a small security pocket which is only big enough for a few coins. The pattern is very cheerful and makes a change from block colours.
► Verdict: They tick all the boxes… apart from having useful pockets.
► Best for: Any warm weather adventures.
