Trekking over the toughest terrain, or riding downhill through the woods – these tough, stretchy and water repellent shorts can take it all.Read more…
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.
95% polyamide, 5% elastane.
Pack Size: 550ml
Drying Time: 3 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.
Building stretch into our fabrics offers some big advantages. It allows us to make very comfortable, streamlined clothing. And a close fit has big advantages for active people. Clothes don’t flap in the wind, they work well in a layering system without bulking up and because there is less fabric, they are lighter, dry quicker and pack smaller – all critical Rohan virtues.
Our durable water resistant finish, which forces water droplets to ‘bead up’ and run off the outside of the jacket, is designed to remain at 80% efficiency – even after 20 washes.
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.

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.
