Daybreak shorts are light and stretchy, but also very durable. The ripstop fabric can take years of climbing, biking or hiking. The Houdini design department always try to create that extra feeling of comfort in the garments they design. Daybreak shorts are Houdinis version of the classic heavy duty outdoor shorts. But while they have the same durability and sturdy design features, the fabric is much lighter and softer than what could be expected. They are also designed with Houdinis Made to move concept for full freedom of movement. The fabric Prime Ripstop™ plays a big part in the added comfort. It’s a light, soft and stretchy ripstop fabric that will last for many years of hard use. It’s made in 38% recycled and fully recyclable polyester. The shorts have two zippered hand pockets and an open back pocket. Houdini can recommend Daybreak Shorts if you are looking for a pair of tough outdoor shorts for anything from boulder climbing to week long hikes. When the shorts eventually wears out, you can return them to Houdini for recycling.
