They might look like dad shorts at a first peek, but the Edgevale Cast-Iron Shorts ($90) are actually super-sleek, even for a dad (hint: Father’s day is coming), featuring a tough-as-nails construction and a few smart touches.

Made of American-milled, Cordura duck fabric which is 4X stronger than regular duck cotton, the shorts are ready to take some serious abuse in your wildest outdoor adventures. They’re fortified with triple needle stitching, plus bar tacks at stress points, a crotch gusset, double back pockets, and Edgevale’s signature reinforced pockets to hold small knives or other clip-able gear. Thanks to the brush treatment the material receives and the tailored, athletic fit, the shorts also work well in different scenarios, whether you’re fishing in Colorado or wine-tasting at a fancy party in Tuscany.
