The Full Story+

The Savannah Shorts are the spiritual successors of our famous Bags Shorts.

Made from proven Rohan Airlight™ fabric, they are durable, lightweight, easycare, quick drying and crease resistant – so you can happily leave the travel iron at home when packing for your next trip.

Cut slighter longer in the leg than the Bags Shorts – by roughly 3.5 inches - they offer a little extra coverage for those that aren’t particularly a fan of ‘short - shorts’.

Equipped with two large zipped pockets on the front and a rear pocket with snap closure to keep your valuables nice and safe. We think they’ll become a firm favourite with our customers.

Fabric: Airlight™ 52% polyester 48% cotton.

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.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 4 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 4 hours

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.

Airlight

Originally introduced in 1983, Airlight™ is the fabric that revolutionized travel clothing: it’s a classic, perfectly-balanced fusion of cotton and polyester. Lightweight, hardwearing, wind resistant, breathable and compressible, it’s easy to wash, very quick drying and feels wonderfully cool and comfortable next to the skin. 

2 Secure Pockets

Losing the odd bit or bob when you’re close to home is rarely an issue, but losing car hire keys, passport, phone or wallet becomes more important than ever in a far off land. That’s why lots of thought goes into safer pockets – deeper, zipped and hidden.

Good All-Round Travel Shorts

★★★★☆

The Savannah Shorts are good all-round travel shorts. Similar to the Bags Shorts, the main difference is the Savannah’s are about 3.5 inches longer in length, coming in at 8.5 inches for the inside leg. And, the Bags have an accessory d-ring (to attach keys etc.), but the Savannah’s do not have this feature.

A mix of polyester and cotton, the Savannah’s are breathable in hot and humid conditions. I have worn them in South Sulawesi, Indonesia for beach and boat activities as well as for exploring tea plantations and other mountain areas. Washing and drying can be done in a couple of hours – very useful if a quick change of clothing is required.

Many items can be stored in the pockets – there are two large zipped ones at the front and a rear pocket with a snap closure. I can usually carry most or all of the items I need for a day of exploring or hiking easily and safely – camera, phone, small torch and a wallet can all be fitted in.

As an alternative, I really like the Escaper Shorts – I use the Escapers for more arduous mountain trekking activities as the stretchy elastane material offers more freedom of movement and the fabric is slightly more breathable as it does not contain cotton and is thinner. But I have become a big fan of the Savannah Shorts – they are very impressive for slightly less demanding activities – I will probably buy another pair quite soon!!

Usual great Rohan quality but not really travel shorts

★★★★☆

Whilst I like the shorts, as they were a present I went by the web description of travel shorts.

However they are really too short and tightly cut to use whilst travelling.

They are not appropriate for wearing on a coach or in a restaurant which I would wish to do whilst travelling. They are fine for wandering around once you have arrived.

They are well made as I expected, I have other Rohan trousers.

It is suggested that I should try the Escaper shorts which are longer but the web site steers you to these if you are looking for travel shorts.

I will continue to use Rohan as they are great quality and style but make sure I try them on first rather than relying on the web site description.
