The Full Story+

The Pioneer Shorts feature an adjustable and removable webbing belt, large functional pockets that allow you to carry all essentials needed on any trip. There are three external zipped security pockets to hold all of your important valuables, one of which has a concealed Tri-ring for your keys or accessories. They also have two large drop-in pockets on the thighs for maximum storage.

Made using an advanced blend of strong Polyamide and stretchy Elastane, offering an unbeatable combination of freedom of movement and great long-term durability and comfort. This modern fusion of fibres are combined with Dynamic Moisture Control, a wicking treatment for enhanced breathability, keeps you feeling cool and comfortable even in hot and humid conditions. 

Insect Shield® technology provides long-lasting, effective and convenient insect protection against most pesky bugs. It's bonded tightly to the fabric fibres and will retain its effectiveness throughout the life of the product.

Insect Shield® Note

Insect Shield® technology converts clothing into convenient, comfortable and effective protection against biting insects. Each Insect Shield® - labelled garment is treated with Permethrin – an invisible and odourless treatment which protects against insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges. The treatment is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibres that it retains effectiveness through the expected life of the product – well beyond the limits of most fabric treatments.

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.

Packable - Pack Size: 700ml

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: 3 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 3 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.

3 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.

Dynamic Moisture Control™

DMC™ is a wicking treatment that rapidly spreads the moisture our bodies create across the surface area of a garment. This can be achieved through the technical construction of the garment or by a performance coating and ensures that the garment dries more quickly, encourages evaporative heat loss and helps you stay cooler and more comfortable for longer.

Insect Shield®

Insect Shield® technology converts clothing into convenient, comfortable and effective protection against biting insects. Each garment is treated with permethrin – an invisible and odourless ingredient that helps protect against insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges.

Nicest shorts I've owned

★★★★★

I've had loads of shorts like a lot of people but I've decided that these are the best I've had. Traditional looking cargos with all the high tech touches plus look like just a really high quality pair of cotton shorts. Could wear them anywhere if it's warm of course. Thanks again Rohan.

My Review of Men’s Pioneer Shorts

★★★★★

This is my first pair of shorts from Rohan and I’m not disappointed.

They fit me well (size 34 reg), they have ample cargo style pocketry and they’re not too high above the knee, just right. I wondered about the absence of a central waist button, but soon realised the alternative press stud fastener to be a comfort plus in warmer weather. Very satisfied with this purchase.

Wowsa, The Future Is Here....

★★★★★

Wowsa, the future is here with the Rohan Pioneer collection. They have reached the top of their game with these shorts and equivalent Pioneer trousers.

As expected these have Insect Shield, Dynamic Moisture Control, 40+ sun protection, Easy care, Lightweight, Packable, Quick drying and Tri-ring inside left external pocket.

In addition they are extremely comfortable and hard wearing. The zipped pocket easily holds my large mobile phone. These shorts are my go to every day trousers whether I'm walking in the New Forest or travelling and they are now in my top five favorite Rohan products.

I purchased these from Linda in the Lymington Store. Linda is old school with her product knowledge, customer care & efficiency. She is a credit to Rohan.
