Combining technical fiber performance and durability with natural fiber comfort, the easy care Stowe Short is designed for travel and works great as day to day wear. Made from BennettTM, 66% cotton, 31% nylon and 3% elastane blend fabric that's durable, quick drying, and has the cool comfort of cotton, the Stowe packs easily and wears well. The Trim fit is streamlined and moves with the body, and a gusseted crotch adds extended freedom of movement. Elastane fibers add stretch for increased ergonomic performance and comfort. Pockets are plentiful. Hand pockets stash grab and go essentials, two back pockets are flapped for security, and the zippered cargo pocket safely stores a passport or digital device. FOCUS ON PURPOSE Arc'teryx designs for performance and freedom of movement with a focus on purpose. With a short designed for travel and trekking, it was important to use a fabric that was air permeable and packable, but could handle the terrain. The ability to move freely is factored in as well. The result is a hardwearing combination of stretch and articulation that moves comfortably through a variety of environments.
