The tough, technical design of the Escalante is ideal for anything from rock climbing to day hikes. The abrasion-resistant material and weather protection provide excellent performance for a range of conditions and activities.
Gear up for tough climbs and impromptu scrambles with the Men's Escalante Shorts. The abrasion-resistant nylon holds up against rocky outcrops, while the stretch construction means these technical shorts can keep up. The DWR (Durable Water-Repellent) finish will keep you dry, while the built-in UPF-50 protection shields your skin from the sun. An interior drawcord customizes the fit, and the gusseted crotch increases range of motion during steep pitches. Keep small gear accessible in one of the front hand pockets or back drop-in pockets.
Marmot's Escalante Shorts are a durable all-rounder that can cope with a wide range of activities. The abrasion resistant nylon is impressive and has already stood up to a lot of challenges. There is a good amount of stretch in the fabric and combined with the gusted crotch they make for a highly mobile pair of shorts that can cope with rock climbing as well as hiking. The waistband is super comfortable as it is lined with a separate material that wicks moisture amazingly well keeping you happy when things heat up.
The protection provided by these shorts stretches further than the abrasion resistance with a UPF 50 rating for keeping out the sun and a durable PFC-Free DWR treatment for repelling water and dirt. A practical assortment of pockets rounds out an impressive pair of shorts that will certainly be a top choice for the next adventure to the mountains.
