The North Face Impendor Alpine Shorts Women, weathered black/tnf black
Even at high altitudes, temperatures in the Alps can rise to over 25 degrees in summer. And if you are not climbing straight or moving forward with hands and feet, you don't need long pants. The Impendor Alpine Shorts were developed precisely for this reason. They are made of ripstop fabric that is tough enough for you to wear these shorts every day, yet stretchy enough to ensure optimum freedom of movement. The FlashDry technology on the back wicks away sweat, and the durable water-repellent impregnation ensures that you won't be left with wet pants after summer rain. Thanks to the silicone strips on the inside of the waist, the pants stay in place even when you're carrying a backpack.
FlashDry fibre technology The North Face has developed innovative, proprietary fabrics to regulate moisture transport and temperature during outdoor activities. FlashDry helps you stay drier, dress more comfortably, stay out longer and do your best, regardless of weather conditions or environment. FlashDry makes clothes neither heavier nor thicker and does not wear out when worn or washed. With FlashDry fibre technology, the fibre surface is increased by the permanent inclusion of a microporous additive in the fibre. Together with the fabric structure, the surface-enlarged fibres accelerate the evaporation cooling and drying process.
