RAB's Vertex Shorts are among our lightest trekking shorts (as opposed to running shorts), so as you'd expect the fabric is very thin and hence breathable - but its also super stretchy.
The Vertex Shorts are a lightweight climbing and trekking short in Matrix SWS fabric.
The Matrix SWS fabric is lightweight, quick drying, and comfortable whilst offering durability and sun protection. The Vertex features 3 zipped pockets along with more climbing specific features like a double snap waistband closure for security, and stretch fit for fantastic freedom of movement.
The Vertex Short is an ideal all round mountain short for walkers, climbers and trekkers alike.

Feature wise they have twin zipped handpockets with a low profile thigh pocket, twin poppers and belt loops on the waistband.
Vertex shorts are very comfortable to wear and are pretty much ideal for summer treks.
