The new Trail Raider Shorts are still lightweight, quick drying and super comfortable to wear. They are now stretchier and provide more pockets for extra storage on longer runs. Ideal for anything from walking to long distance runs.
The Trail Raider Short is perfectly simple, but technical, with the multi pocket waist band it is perfect for carrying a few items securely. Its lightweight recycled polyester dries very quickly and is highly breathable.
Raidlight's Trail Raider Shorts are loose fitting shorts made from recycled polyester which is quick drying, lightweight and super comfortable to wear. Every part of these shorts is super stretchy and really comfortable. In addition to this is the inside which has an attached full mesh brief that is light and airy. The seams of the mesh brief are inside out so it feels smooth against your skin but the mesh will split opinions and it's definitely not for me when compared to the Lycra tights style linings.
The two side pockets are pretty large for what you expect on short and they are definitely big enough to fit a phone, an iPod or energy gels inside. There is also a small, zip secure pocket on the rear of the shorts and two smaller stretch mesh pockets along the waistband at the front of the shorts giving you loads of options. The extra stretch in the shorts along with the wide waistband provides a more comfortable fit for when you are constantly on the move. Ideal for running, hiking or just everyday wear.
