The North Face Men’s Tanken Shorts Review

posted in: Hiking & Walking | 0

Spring and Summer can bring a wonderful sense of freedom. You do not have to put on layers to stay warm (assuming it’s seasonal weather), or wrap up against the down pours of wintery rain. Your outfit is lighter and you can enjoy the warmth of the sun.

Alternatively you do not want to over heat either. Here are a pair of shorts from The North Face, to help you stay cool while enjoying that sunshine.

These shorts are designed for hikes in ‘better’ weather, the name “Tanken” is the clue. Named after the japanese phonetic for “expedition”.

The fabric is nylon ripstop, tough, light and quick drying, so if you do fancy a quick dip, they are just the job.

The Tanken shorts have two hand pockets and a zipped security pocket, semi elasticated waist and easy roll up legs


  • 100% Rip Stop Nylon
  • 2 hand pockets
  • Semi elasticated waist
  • Left hand pocket includes a zipped security pocket
  • Roll up leg with tape detailing.
