Like the Exploration II Trousers, the Exploration II Shorts are not designed for a single use, but many. Quick-drying FlashDry technology actively wicks sweat and keeps him cool and dry – ideal if he runs rather than walks everywhere. Then there’s the water repellent finish, which brushes off summer showers. And the durable stretchy fabric comes in mighty handy when climbing over pretty much anything. Finally, the elasticated waistband makes light work of getting them on and off.
