2. Go for a hike- Prana’s Zion Stretch Short

Described as “an adventurous traveler’s best friend,” it’s no wonder these shorts continue to be a favorite of hikers.  The amount of stretch in these shorts is just right, and their abrasion resistant material leaves you worry-free while taking that weekend trail run.  These also dry extremely fast, so you can breathe easy in the Zion short.

Honorable mentionHowler Brothers’ Sayulita Watershorts

We couldn’t make a post about the best shorts for fishing without including our new brand, Howler Brothers.  Based in Austin, these designs take the classic fishing short and upgrade its cool factor with modern influences.  The Sayulita short is perfect for the person wanting to look cool after leaving the dock, but still wants the seriousness of a short made for outdoor sports.
