The Torque Light offer a versatile pair of soft shell shorts, ready to take on anything. These shorts use a light, breathable and fast drying softshell fabric that still provides protection, stretch and comfort.
Whether for traditional ascents or via ferrata, our flexible, quick-drying Torque Light Shorts are built to take the heat out of warm summer climbs.
While our Torque Light Shorts were primarily designed for summer ascents in warm climates, their value as a general-purpose warm weather garment is plain to see. Features include a lightweight Matrix™ double-weave softshell construction, a part-elasticated flat-front waistband with double snap fasteners and numerous zipped and open pockets for storage. With a leg length of 12.5 inches and incorporating a tapered crotch gusset for dynamic movement, their comfy high-stretch fit makes them well-suited to agile hot weather ascents.
With an active cut, a high-stretch fabric and a weight of just 230g, our Torque Light Shorts are the perfect companion for cool, ventilated summer climbs.

Rab's Torque Light Shorts offer a lightweight option for hitting the mountains in warm conditions. They use a lighter weight fabric than the original Torque softshell range that improves breathability dramatically along with the ability to dry quickly. The DWR coating helps provide some weather resistance for changeable conditions in the mountains. These are really comfortable shorts with loads of stretch that make them pleasingly versatile.
The slim fit with crotch gusset and stretchy fabric is ideal for a range of mountain activities where a wide range of movement is vital. The waist is part elasticated with a wide comfortable section around the back which again, helps with freedom of movement in addition to the comfort factor. There are plenty of pockets (two zipped, two open) for keeping essentials close and secure.
