The Shorter Shorts - Hiker Midnight

The Shorter Shorts - Hiker Midnight


More thighs = more skies, or at least we like to think so. Our new and improved shorts sport a fashionable 5” inseam, and we’ve made them even better with upgraded quick-dry fabric, ultra-durable stitching, and an adjustable belt with literally 8" of stretch for any adventure. 


We don’t like to mess with perfection, so we kept the pockets the same: two hip pockets and a zippered mesh catch-all on the thigh. We like to call it the trash pocket, but you can put whatever you want in there. Gummy bears? Small rocks? It's totally up to you. Our shorts are constructed with double interlocked stitching on all seams, so they'll stand up to the toughest conditions. Guaranteed chafe-free for 4,000 miles and counting.

    Thru-Hike Guranteed

    If you see this stamp on any of our products, it means that we will guarantee the life of this product for any thru-hike you embark on. Whether that is the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail, or an obscure route that you convinced yourself was somehow a "good idea". From terminus to terminus, and sometimes from middle of nowhere to another middle of nowhere, we will have you covered the entire way. If this stamp is on the product you purchase, you may disregard all of the below, and instead know that no matter what ElevenSkys will have the important bits covered so you can safely resupply in town without hanging in the wind, so to say. We guarantee at least one full thru-hike, and hopefully many more!
