You guys have been asking us for new shorts for years, and we’re beyond excited to offer these incredible versatile tactical shorts — ready for your warm weather adventures.
Summer is my happiest time. And I want one pair of shorts that I can wear, no matter what I’m doing. They need to move with me, featuring enough pockets to carry everything I need, but not so loose that my stuff is all over the place.
So we made a pair of chino shorts using our Ascender fabric and a streamlined pocketing design for everyday carry. I tested them all last summer so I could confidently approve them to share with you guys.
Meet the Fabric
Our amazing Ascender fabric is extremely soft, with built-in stretch, and performs just the way you need it to:
- 100% technical polyester twill.
- Wrinkle-resistant and breathable.
- Moisture-wicking, quick-dry, anti-microbial.
- Machine-washable. Line or tumble dry.
- Lightweight 5.31 oz per yard fabric.
Like other men’s chino shorts, these are made with a twill fabric that has a nice matte finish. We’re launching them in two classic colors for easy coordinating across your closet: an earth tone and a navy.
And of course the fabric has all the standard Bluffworks benefits: machine-washable, moisture-wicking, quick-drying, and odor-resisting. So your shorts are ready for wherever the day may take you.
Meet the Pockets
A few of our favorite pockets:
- Signature Bluffworks phone pocket
- Zippered pocket
- Regular slash pockets
- Regular pocket
- Zippered side pocket
We used our Ascender Chino pants as the basis for the design, so they have a classic look of casual shorts for men. But we included the pockets you need for them to be practical as hiking shorts or on trips.
So our shorts have a total of 9 pockets, including a small multi-tool pocket (for a KeySmart or pocket knife), our signature Bluffworks waistband phone pocket, and zippered security pockets.
The side zippered pocket is our answer to having a cargo pocket that doesn’t look like one, thanks to our streamlined design.
