Shorts for action-packed adventures

These shorts have been influenced by the design and functionality of Särmä Outdoor Pants, so they don’t just look good, they also work. These have stretchy fabric at the crotch, pockets, and backside. You can easily crouch down and raise your legs without a problem.

A high-quality YKK zipper on the fly plus two snap fasteners. Spacious side pockets plus cargo pockets on the front for e.g. a map. No back pockets. The waist is comfortably high at the back, so you can bend over as much as you want without revealing too much and getting mosquito bites on your behind. These come with belt loops for a max. 5 cm (2") belt and a hook and loop adjustable elastic waist.

Size info

The measurements differ to some extent from Särmä Shorts. So, don’t buy them based on an old pair of those. Instead, check some key measurements in the charts below. Not that these are the actual measurements of the garment, not the recommended user measurements. The front rise is measured to the stretch fabric (crotch).

When guesstimating a suitable leg end girth, choosing a bit tight fit is unlikely to cause problems, as part of the circumference is elastic.

Materials

The primary material of these shorts is 65% polyester and 35% cotton. This combination makes it a tad stretchy and very comfortable. Polyester is made of recycled plastic bottles and cotton is organic. Secondary material: 4-way stretch 92/8 percent polyester-elastane. Very breathable and comfortable.

These shorts are comfortable as hell. The fabric is rugged but not so tightly woven that your ass and junk cant breathe.

If you are a semi fat orangutang shaped person like me, the sizes may not be optimal for you (like almost any other clothing for that matter). The 2xl is way too big and the xl's are too tight for my thighs.

But if you are a normal sized human being there will be no problem at all. I imagine that these shorts are the best you can get for the prize so go ahead and buy some.

Jos ostat nämä siinä toivossa, että saisit kesäksi shortsiversion Särmän retkeilyhousuista, jätä ostamatta. Shortsit ovat paljon tiukemmat ja jäykemmät kuin täysimittaiset retkeilyhousut. Eivät jousta eivätkä ole läheskään yhtä mukavat jalassa kuin pitkälahkeiset.

Super comforable. Feel lightweight and stretchy, but the fabric still has a bit durability. Nice, deep waist pockets and handy cargo pockets that are easy to access while sitting.

Sizing wise, I am right on the edge between a medium and large (88cm waist), and went with the large. A loose fit for sure, but not falling down and don't need a belt.

Very pleased with purchase. These shorts have rendered a bunch of my other BDU style cargo shorts obsolete.

Tilasin nämä XXL:nä ja palautukseen menee. Syy on että läskinä lätkänpelaajana nämä puristava etureisistä aika ikävästi joten kyykätessä tai istuessa ei osaa arvostaa muiden osien jousto-ominaisuuksia kun puristaa niin ikävästi. Sinänsä vyötärö ei ole ylikorkea kuten Särmän normi shortseissa joten möhömahakin saa nämä oikealle korkeudelle, mutta reisien ahtaus on dealbreaker paksureitisille.

Bought it because of the MEGA project discount. Quality is fine, but sadly the cut/fit is nothing like the outdoor trousers. The shorts are much smaller and tighter fitting than the outdoor trousers with the same size. It's not just the waistband, the legs are also a lot tighter.

It still fits, but not as comfortably as I had hoped. It's also sad that there is no green color available.

The shorts are of great quality. However, the cutting is awful. I bought the L, XL, and 2XL in three separate purchases, and none of them fit properly. The 2XL was so loose around the waist that the shorts would literally fall off without a belt, but they were actually restrictive around the groin and thigh area. The XL fit fine around the waist, but was uncomfortable to walk around in due to it being very restricting. I wanted to like this product so badly, but I may have to either return them or give them away. Us larger people have different ratios than skinnier people, and we often require more room around the groin and thighs.

Do these have the very useful mobile phone pocket that the outdoor trousers have?

Once again no 3xl option. I guess us giants are out or luck everywhere nowadays.

Critical error! Why do the shorts come with adjustable waist but the pants do not?

Is the waist sizing identical to the outdoor trousers?
