A singular short with unlimited potential - durable enough for hiking or biking, tailored for everyday, built swim-ready, and comfortable in the broadest range of possibilities and destinations.

Cut from the same innovative, extremely durable, lightweight, breathable fabric as our award-winning Evolution Pant, the Evolution Short is the only pair of shorts you need.

With flow-through powermesh pockets, a curved waistband, a quick-dry drawstring and a C6 Durable Water Repellent, the Evolution Short is a short built for life, sport, and travel. A short that can be worn more and washed less.

My new favorite short!

These are perfect. Fit as comfortable as the evolution pant, the length is excellent, and the look fits in anywhere whether on a hike or in town (with a mask). If you lose weight wearing them with all the exploring you’ll want to do then there’s a little elastic tie to give you a more snug fit. The pockets hold their shape better than other lighter-weight shorts so you don’t look like you’re wearing a sack of bricks when carting phone/wallet/keys etc... Looking forward to traveling with these in the future. I will definitely get another pair...

Greatest shorts ever

These shorts are amazing...you can go casual/semi-casual (they are shorts of course), swimming, hiking and biking. I had a pair of shorts from other brands and now have replaced them with these. I'm a minimalist traveler and these are so light weight and replace several pairs. Great work Western Rise - more colors please!!!

Perfection

I highly recommend these shorts. If you like their pants, or really if you like Western Rise, nay, if you're human and are in need of a pair of shorts, then cash in on a pair of these bad-boys. They'll make your life easier in all the ways a pair of shorts can. Oh, and do it soon. They're comfortable, stylish and super durable. Great for travel as they are light-weight. Or at least they will be when we start traveling again.

style and versatile

I love these shorts - I wear them nearly everyday- they look good and still allow me to have fun.

Fabric

To create the most versatile pair of shorts ever created, we had to start from the yarn. We searched for years to find the ideal fabric with the soft feel and matte look of a cotton fabric, the durability and toughness of a nylon, stretch, and stain resistance. We finally found the ideal partner to create this fabric at our sustainable, Bluesign approved mill in Sweden.

The key to the Evolution Shorts is the nylon Supplex® fabric. Nylon is an incredibly durable fiber used in many products from rock climbing harnesses to parachutes. Supplex® takes the durability of nylon to the next level. The uncommonly strong fibers are air-texturized to make them incredibly soft. Supplex® takes hundreds of these extremely fine, air-texturized nylon fibers and spins them into thick durable yarns. The added fibers cause the yarns themselves to be stronger, but also more dynamic. The resulting fabric is incredibly lightweight, abrasion resistant, ultra-durable, with the soft hand feel of cotton, and the perfect drape and stretch.

Sustainably Bluesign approved for a more sustainable world.

Care

Due to our pieces having a Durable Water Repellent application, they will absorb less odor and staining. Thus, they can and should be washed less frequently. 

Wash with like colors with mild detergent cold. Tumble dry low or lay flat. Do not use fabric softener during wash as this may damage the water repellency. 

Please note that due to the stretch material of these shorts, you may experience up to a half-size shrinkage after washing and drying in warm/hot water. This is temporary and they will return to their normal size after a wear. They can also be stretched back out by hand if needed. 

Do NOT bleach. Do NOT dry clean. Low heat iron ONLY.  

Avoid oils and grease as they will permanently damage the water repellent treatment and possibly stain the piece. To remove oil stains use mild dish detergent like Dawn.

Water Repellent Treatment- To reactivate treatment machined dry on medium heat or iron on low heat no steam. Do not dry clean.
