The Parapet Short is designed for the trail but has a contemporary styling that makes it an excellent short for travel and casual wear. Freedom of movement, an Arcteryx design essential, is built in with carefully articulated patterning, a gusseted crotch and the TerraTex fabrics stretch. The shorter length and women's specific trim fit add another layer of ergonomic freedom. The Parapet's wide waistband offers a clean look and is exceptionally comfortable, even under a hip belt.
Arcteryx designs for use, and that means selecting fabrics that deliver function without sacrificing comfort. TerraTex, a plain weave nylon blend that is one of the most versatile fabrics Arcteryx employs, makes the Parapet Short perfect for summer weather and long trails. TerraTex provides sun protection and is quick to dry. Highly air permeable, it stays cool and breezy. Elastane fibres are added for performance stretch and the comfortable nylon weave provides durability without feeling heavy or stiff.
