Marmot's Arch Rock shorts are made from a technical softshell fabric that makes them durable but still lightweight. The fabric has a stretchy property which makes the shorts comfortable and allows a full range of movement.
Synthetic but modern; this technical hiking short is built with abrasion-resistant nylon that wicks and quickly dries. Stretch and a gusseted crotch allow unencumbered movement. Rated with maximum sun protection and coated with a water-repelling finish, the Arch Rock has two hand pockets, two back pockets and a zippered side pocket.
Marmot's Arch Rock Shorts are made from a stretchy softshell material which is ideal for most outdoor activities. They're rugged enough for climbing & mountain biking and comfortable enough to wear for days on a long distance trek.
The pockets are big and useful and the extra zipped thigh pocket is a bonus.
