Women’s hiking shorts : How to choose them ?
...Women's hiking shorts can fit multiple uses. During the summer, they can be worn anytime : During your city trips, your mountain adventures and your classic Sunday walk outdoors. Some even wear them at work !
During spring and autumn, our women's walking shorts will be a perfect ally for your mountain and outdoor adventures, for the warm days.
You will find multiple women's shorts, fit for various uses. They're mostly differentiated in inseam length, colours and styling ;
We have multiple colours, from black flashy colours. In between we have several discreet colours such as grey, burgundy, petrol etc... You will find the colours that fit your tastes !
Inseam : From 3 inches to 12, we have walking shorts for every person. It's not so much a matter of your height, it's about how you want to wear your pair of shorts ! If you prefer longer shorts, choose an inseam around 8 to 12 inches. It will cover your tights better and allow more pocket room. Longer inseams are often fit for city trips and hiking in various conditions. If you prefer a shorter inseam, pick your shorts in between 3 and 6 inches. They will turn out to be extra light, breathable and comfy. Shorter inseam shorts are perfect for active sports : climbing, hiking, walking and running, generally while the weather is warm. Choose your regular size.
Last but not least, our women's walking shorts come in different cuts : Some are ample and more loose, some are closer to you and some are even leggings. It's mostly a matter of taste. But, know this : ample shorts will please persons who prefer a wider cut and more pockets. Tighter /
shorts will suit you if you want total freedom of movement, excellent breathability and a lightweight fabric.
There is technology in our walking shorts : Discover why
Our women's walking shorts are unique. At Columbia, we think of clothing as a technical ally that can help you to overcome nature's hardships. Hiking shorts are part of this philosophy. Here are a part of the technological promesses of our women's walking shorts :
• Omni‑Wick™ is an enhanced wicking technology that is particularly efficient for active sports : walking, hiking, trail and running. It moves the moisture away from the skin and disperses it across your shorts fabric for a rapid evaporation and drying. Stay dry and comfortable during your outdoor adventures !
• Omni‑Freeze ZERO™ reacts with your sweat and provides a cooling effect ! Yes, it sounds unbelievable, but we have designed a cooling technology, within our fabric. The blue ring reacts with your perspiration and lowers the fabric's temperature, so you can stay cool in your walking shorts.
• Omni‑Shield™ is another technical asset Columbia provides to hikers and walkers : This is made to protect you from water and stains. We've designed a fabric that repels water and stains by preventing liquids from absorbing into the yarns and saturating or staining your hiking shorts. It incorporates a quick drying feature.
Are you afraid of going for a mountain adventure without women's trousers ? Shorts might not be enough when the temperatures drop at nighttime : Get yourself a pair of hiking trousers or zip off pants.
