Shorts that won't, well, fall short.

Instead of owning a pair of shorts for climbing, hiking, backpacking, and mountain biking, get the Outdoor Research Women's Ferrosi Shorts and be ready for everything. Outdoor Research made these versatile shorts from a stretchy and durable softshell fabric and hooked them up with a low-profile waist band to keep them comfortable when you're wearing them with a backpack or climbing harness.

  • 90D stretch woven ripstop fabric

My go to shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I love these shorts! This is the third pair I've purchased. They are lightweight and so comfortable. Even though they are lightweight they are so durable! I have not gotten any holes in them, even though I've used them climbing and scrambling. I like the length-down to the knee. Great product!
