8incher Boulder Shorts | Men's

Colour: Khaki

Waxed cotton shorts built for years of hard use

In all our years in outdoor gear, we've never come across a company so fanatical about shorts as Norwegian gear brand Amundsen, and these 8-incher boulder shorts are among their most versatile models. Built in herringbone weave organic cotton with a light wax finish, they've been purposefully designed to develop a great patina over years of rough-and-tumble adventures. The fabric from legendary Scottish mill Halley Stevensons is lightweight and breathable but tough as old boots, making these shorts a dependable companion for climbing, hiking or general travel. The folks at Amundsen reckon they look best when they’re all dirtied and scuffed up, but they’re easy to wash and quick to line-dry if you need to freshen them up.

    • Sustainability through Longevity: While the biggest polluters in the outdoor industry compete to make the most noise about recycling and other green initiatives, Amundsen focus on what matters most: fewer products. Through the use of quality materials, technology and craftsmanship, Amundsen continuously make sure your timeless and versatile garments last for generations.
  • Amundsen clothing is named after one of the greatest explorers ever to walk the Earth. No pressure there then. In fact, the company’s co-founder, Jørgen Amundsen, is a relative of the legendary man himself, and the brand’s designs are based on classic styles from the golden age of exploration. Throw in a generous dash of 1960s Nordic ski resort chic and you’ve got a unique range of good-looking kit that’ll get you noticed in all the right ways.

    However, there’s nothing old-fashioned about the way Amundsen’s gear performs. Ruggedly built from merino wool and waterproof triple-layer cotton, these are serious expedition-grade garments built for a Scandi outdoor culture – a concept that the Norwegians call ‘friluftsliv’, or ‘open-air life’. It’s the idea that time spent enjoying the freedom of the outdoors should be a core part of your life, since it enhances just about everything else. Now that’s something we can all get on board with.
