Adventures in Acai Activewear Summer Hiking Shorts
Meet your new favourite shorts for forays into the great outdoors. Water and mud resistant and so flexible and comfortable you can barely feel them on, Acai Activewear’s new summer shorts, £45, are tough beauties that can take on any challenge, perfect for hot weather travels and active adventures.
Pull on a pair of Acai Activewear shorts and you’ll be instantly smitten by how well they fit. I love the high-waisted, relaxed cut and the stretchy Teflon-coated softshell material, which moves with you even when you’re working up a sweat. I’ve hiked come rain or shine in my khaki pair, and even wear them for running – they’re that breathable. The shorts sport deep pockets on the front and back, including a handy zipped pocket for your phone.
Wear in all weathers
Okay, so they’re comfortable. But the best thing about Acai Activewear’s new shorts is their water repellency – raindrops literally roll straight off the material, keeping you dry even in a storm. Mine have stayed reliably waterproof even after washing, but you can also keep your shorts water resistant in the long term by using Grangers wash + repel treatments.
In a world of functional but often unflattering female outdoor kit it’s such a pleasure to find a pair of active shorts that look fantastic on. The high waist and wide rolled bottoms of the Acai Activewear shorts remind me of the clothes that stylish hikers in the 60s would rock, and they look good with everything from denim shirts and technical hiking tops to cosy jumpers when evenings draw in. If you’re packing light for a summer camping or trekking adventure, these are the perfect quiver-of-one shorts.
After a wear-everywhere pair of shorts? Look no further than Acai Activewear’s shorts, £45 available in khaki and black. For cooler weather, switch to water-resistant slim fit chinos or Acai Activewear’s Instagrammer-favourite, their much-loved skinny trousers.
