The Full Story+

Our Escaper Shorts are designed for active, outdoor performance.

Made from a light but tough stretch fabric and featuring an elasticated waist, they flex with you and wick away moisture – giving you greater comfort and freedom of movement for a range of activities.

They’re built around our Forward Pitch Cut™ principles – they look totally conventional but the back is cut slightly higher, so, when you’re ‘in position’ on your bike for example, the coverage, fit and feel is absolutely perfect.

They’re also treated with our Durable Water Repellency™ finish, so they can take the spray of a downhill bike ride or easily shrug off a summer shower. They’re also quick drying, so you can wash them at night and be ready to hit the trail again in the morning.

Fabric: 95% polyamide, 5% elastane.

We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.

Low pack size is a benefit whether you’re packing for a day’s walking or for the trip of a lifetime. We continually scrutinise fabric specification and garment construction to minimise the packed size of our clothing. The actual pack size is tested and listed.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 3 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 3 hours

All Rohan clothing is designed to be very fast drying – as much a benefit for unexpected downpours as anything else. It’s easy to wash and often needs no ironing. Almost all garments will dry overnight, meaning you can take less with you. We test every item and list its drying time.

DURABLE WATER REPELLENCY™

Our DWR ™ finish is an advanced treatment which dramatically increases the water repellency of our fabrics. On its own, it offers a useful level of shower resistance; used in conjunction with our Barricade™ technology, it reduces the tendency of the face fabric to wet out and maximizes breathability.

2 Secure Pockets

Losing the odd bit or bob when you’re close to home is rarely an issue, but losing car hire keys, passport, phone or wallet becomes more important than ever in a far off land. That’s why lots of thought goes into safer pockets – deeper, zipped and hidden.

Shorts for all occasions and locations

★★★★★

I needed a pair of stretchy shorts for walks in countryside with many stiles and would also be acceptable on golf courses where "tailored" shorts are required ie not cargo shorts. The zipped leg pocket is so discreet that it passes inspection by the keenest committee member. As other reviewers have said, they are good for cycling though not long rides as the lack of seat padding is soon realised. They are hard wearing, easily washed and keep their shape extremely well so that they can be worn in all but the very exclusive restaurants. I am going to purchase a second pair soon as they provide comfort in hot, humid climates, and are tough enough for walking in hills and waist high vegetation. I strongly recommend them to all ages.

Probably Rohan’s Best Shorts

★★★★★

The Escaper Shorts are probably Rohan’s best all-round shorts – they really do not have any weaknesses. The material is polyamide with some elastane which makes the shorts stretch – very effective for active use such as walking on uneven surfaces and trekking in mountains.

Less than 250g in weight, these shorts are light – actually the material feels very thin indeed, but thankfully is very strong and durable. They are absolutely fantastic to wear in hot and humid conditions such as in South East Asia as the material is very breathable. The Durable Water Repellent technology keeps rain water out, although they are obviously not 100% waterproof as I discovered during the Indonesian monsoon rains. And they are quick to wash and dry – a couple of hours and you can wear them again.

Storage options are great, with two mesh lined hand pockets and two external zipped pockets. I can store most of the items I need for a day of hiking or city sightseeing in these pockets, including a wallet, phone, camera and camera batteries.

The inside leg measurement is 11 inches – quite long, but a very effective length for all purposes, especially providing good protection from sun in hot environments. And the elasticated waist is a fantastic feature as the shorts feel much more secure and comfortable when doing action-based activities – they really sit well on my waist all of the time.

The Escaper Shorts are my go-to Rohan shorts, just as the Escapers Trousers are my go-to Rohan trousers. It is almost impossible to improve on these two products.

Excellent travel shorts

★★★★★

Have had two pairs of these for about two years now and they have become my go too shorts during high summer.

Comfortable, cool and good for the hills or town walking, also very acceptable in a smart restaurant.

An all round great buy

★★★★★

Bought these shorts as a pair of casual cycling shorts which would also function & not look out of place for general use. They have proved particularly functional as cycling shorts without shouting cycling shorts.

They are without a doubt the best pair of Rohan shorts I have bought; and I've bought a few over many years.
