Why We Built The Backcountry Wasatch Ripstop Short

"These shorts are so tough, but I'm not missing out on any stretch." —Gearhead® Expert Jessie


Whether we're topping out or bagging peaks, we're wearing our Backcountry Wasatch Ripstop Short. The burly, quick-drying material holds its own in rugged conditions yet is light and smooth for comfort during warm-weather adventures. Thanks to the stretchy and gusseted crotch, we mantel and scramble freely while the integrated belt ensures a stay-put fit through it all.

These shorts are GREAT. I loved them so much that I bought another pair shortly after receiving my first pair. great color scheme, wears really comfortably/lots of flex, and can be put through the ringer. They're great for both around the house and trekking in some serious terrain. I love the water resistant nature of the short. Highly recommend.

Love these shorts! perfect material for breathability and stretch. I have used them so far almost everyday this summer from pack rafting to 30 mile hikes in Alaska.

Nice shorts, waist is tight

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

great shorts, lightweight, length is spot on. bought a pair a year or two ago and sizing must have changed though, new ones are very tight. Size large is just barely big enough for me with a ~34in waist. 33 or 34 waist pants/ shorts is generally my size. probably would go for XL if I get another pair

I snagged two pair of these shorts and absolutely love them! The belt closure took some getting used to but it actually functions better than other shorts I've owned. It's a huge plus being built into the shorts. They are a perfect length to not get in the way when hiking or running (even biking though I wouldn't choose these over dedicated MTB shorts.) Having 2 zipper pockets is an unexpected bonus for activities where things can fall out easily. The fabric itself is comfortable and sturdy. They dry really quick at the beach as well making them work decent for water activities. These will continue to be my go-to summer shorts without question.

I would highly recommend these to anyone, they have quickly become my favorite short. I'm about to use them to walk the Camino Frances, so am putting a lot of trust in them. I just wish they were not so expensive.
