When it comes to selecting women’s shorts, there are two important factors to consider: which activity the shorts will be used for, and what kind of coverage you’ll need. Gym-going gals need lightweight, moisture-wicking fabric in their women’s shorts that won’t restrict movement as they log treadmill miles; conversely, hardy hiking women are going to need sturdier fabric blends that hold up to the great outdoors. That’s why we keep a full stock of women’s shorts ranging from tough Carhartt women’s shorts to trendy ExOfficio women’s cargo shorts; from lightweight Columbia Sportswear hiking shorts to moisture-wicking Pearl Izumi and New Balance women’s running shorts. We want to be sure to cover the long and "short" (or shorts!) of your active lifestyle.
