Prometheus Design Werx is known for the many stylish yet utilitarian creations they produce for the modern male. For the Summer 2017 season, they have released a new wilderness-grade short capable of standing up to whatever nature throws at it.
The Rapide Field Short ($119) is a purpose-driven design which provides functionality in every situation. The material, while rugged, is light enough to provide comfort in all summer weather conditions while the length is set at knee level to facilitate bending, walking, or scrambling up and down slopes. The short has bar tack reinforcement throughout, a horseshoe gusset panel, and multiple specially-designed EDC gear pockets.
Although this Made in the USA piece of apparel is function-oriented, it still provides a smooth, simple style that can be easily paired with other outdoor wear. Available in three nature’s shades of Dark Arid Earth, Dark Leaf Green, and Machine Mineral Gray.
