Quick Dry Travel-Friendly Shorts?

Hi all,

I’m after some quick drying and easy to look after shorts that don’t look like travel gear.

So something that looks like regular chino shorts - not extra pockets or extra zips etc, cut above the knee - but will dry quickly, and maybe pack up without creasing too much.

Any ideas? Most of the ones I can see have lame zip pockets or other silly details.


I’ve been wearing Myles Apparel shorts for the last year. I’ve put them through hell and they are still rocking!


I’ve been using Outlier New Way shorts, and they’ve been absolutely fantastic. http://shop.outlier.cc/shop/retail/new-way-shorts.html

They look great, if not a little sporty. Can’t seem to see a UK supplier though.

Again they look good, if not a little pricey. Can’t see a UK supplier though either!

Check out O’Neill shorts. They have tons of choice of patterns and colors, and the shorts are made of a very durable and quick drying fabric that doesn’t seem to crease. You can also swim in most of them without a problem. http://us.oneill.com/shop/mens/clothing/hybrid-shorts/

I use these - they are pretty perfect. http://www.rohan.co.uk/mens-travel-and-outdoor-shorts-Fusion-Shorts
