Initial Thoughts on the Helly Hansen Tech Trail Shorts

The Helly Hansen Trail Tech Shorts are super comfortable, soft, lightweight shorts that are perfect for trail running or hiking. I barely noticed I was wearing them when on the trail! The wide elastic waistband provides a snug and cozy fit.

Pros Cons
  • Zippered security pocket for valuables
  • Back zip pocket can be difficult to open/close with one hand
  • Moisture-wicking and quick drying
  • Waistband rides up a touch, even when the drawstring is cinched
