Designed for rugged travel and tough trekking, our Consignment Shorts are made from a robust polyamide with our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish for complete comfort in hot or humid conditions.
In fact, the fabric is one of our toughest and ticks all the Rohan boxes – durable, packable, quick drying and lightweight.
They’re easy to wash too, something you'll appreciate if you're doing your laundry on the hoof. Give them rinse in a hotel sink or the nearest stream, hang them up and they’ll comfortably dry overnight - ready for more action the next morning.
They feature two hand pockets, two rear pockets and a cargo pocket on each thigh, offering you plenty of storage options for outdoor or travel essentials.
They've also got a concealed zipped security pocket inside one of the hand pockets, perfect to store valuables such as keys, cash or that all-important mobile.
Pack Size: 950ml
Drying Time: 4 hours
Pocket science at Rohan is all about precision and detail of design, but most of all, it’s about keeping your most important stuff safe at times when losing keys, passports and wallet is more than just an inconvenience. We use several different methods – whichever is the most appropriate. Some pockets are completely hidden with micro zips, some are touch and close with roll-over tops and some are high quality zips.
Our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish is a permanent, wicking treatment that rapidly spreads moisture, such as sweat, over a wide surface area of the fabric. This ensures the garment dries more quickly and you stay more comfortable - even in the hottest and most humid conditions.
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.
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.

My husband loves to wear these as they're comfortable and have the requisite"plenty of pockets". However after only 2 washes the fabric has started to "bobble". Not the quality I was expecting from Rohan. It's becoming a problem with recent purchases. Perhaps go back to the criteria you had a few years ago for durability please
The Consignment Shorts are wonderful for hiking and trekking – very tough and durable – it is actually difficult to damage them in any way. They can be washed and dried in a couple of hours – very useful when trekking in wet and dirty conditions. The inside leg length is 10 inches – not too long and not too short, offering protection if coming into contact with plants, trees or rocks when trekking.
Made of polyamide, they feel very soft when on, and are effective in hot and humid conditions such as South East Asia. I have worn these shorts for hiking in a tea plantation and trekking in a rainforest in Sulawesi, Indonesia – they were fantastic. I cannot vouch for the longevity of these shorts as I purchased my first pair only a couple of weeks ago, but having worn them a few times I am sure they will last for many years.
Possibly the best feature of these shorts is the amount of storage space available. There are two hand pockets (one with a zipped security pocket), two large cargo pockets and two rear pockets (one with a zipped security pocket) – more than enough space to carry most items you need for a day of adventure. Sometimes I do not even need a rucksack or day bag – camera, phone and other items all fit inside the pockets of these shorts.
The Consignment Shorts work very well with the Expedition Shirt – a great outfit for hiking and trekking in tropical conditions.
