Whether you're scrambling up a steep trail or strategically setting yourself up for a big move on the wall, The North Face Horizon Sunnyside Short gets you to where you need to be. Its gusseted crotch provides plenty of unrestricted movement, and the UPF-50 rated fabric protects you from the sun's nasty rays when they're blazing down on you. The Horizon's roll-up tabs let you change the inseam to 6.5 inches, and its quick-drying, lightweight, abrasion-resistant, and packable fabric make this a go-anywhere, do-anything short.
I have had these shorts for a year and love them. They are nice looking but also comfortable. Not too short. The fabric is light weight and good for hot weather. They have held up well, and I expect to have them for a while longer. I just ordered another pair.
