Made from all recycled fibres, including marine plastics.

We loved getting out-and-about in our Action Shorts last year. Ed walked the whole of the Pennine Way in his. He also ran hundreds of miles and, when he wasn’t skinny dipping, he swam in tarns, dams, streams and lidos in them. During moments of repose he did a bit of mooching about town and ate a lot of ice creams. All in the Action Shorts.

Bringing them back for a reboot was a no-brainer. But we wanted to make some changes, starting with the cloth.

This year we’ve upgraded to 2-way stretch cloth made from all-recycled polyester and elastane fibres

Lightweight, breathable & quick-drying

Integrated adjustable belt that continues the full circumference of the waistband.

British-made zip fly

Plastic-free top button made from nuts. More here.

Two front pockets

Zipped back pocket

V-cut side vents for ease of movement (makes you go faster, even at a standstill).

The “ball bag” mesh liner is made from recycled polyester yarn, of which 10% is sourced from plastics found at sea.

Designed for going commando. The mesh liner is comfortable and keeps everything where it needs to be.

But there’s plenty more where that comes from…

    Super comfortable and lightweight summer shorts, really happy with them. Used the online size guide and got a perfect fit.

    Had them for a month and no complaints!

    Supremely comfortable. I ordered size 32 waist initially but they were a little snug, so I exchanged for size 34 which fit perfectly with a small cinch in at the waist.

    I love the waist adjustment method, I love the light and smooth fabric, the lining is also comfortable but secure. The pockets are nice and deep.

    Going to do a big walk in them this weekend (40miles) and I’m looking forward to every step.

    I initially purchased the 36 in teal but found they were a bit snug (I normally wear 36 in Hebtroco jeans) so I swapped them for a more comfortable fit in 38. I also changed to the blue to give me a more flexible colour to go with anything – both colours are pretty good! Looking forward to using them over the summer for hiking, kayaking and a bit of swimming
