The ultimate guide to trail shorts

When you’re exploring the natural world around you, it’s essential to choose the right equipment to maximize your comfort and performance. Trail shorts are one of the most important pieces of equipment. In this article, we’ll guide you through the key aspects to consider when choosing your trail shorts, so you can make the most of your outdoor experience.

  1. Lightweight, breathable materials:

When running on trails, ventilation and lightness are essential. Choose trail shorts made from technical, breathable materials such as polyamide or nylon. These fabrics effectively wick moisture away from your skin, keeping you dry and comfortable throughout your run.

  1. Freedom of movement and proper fit:

Trail shorts must offer great freedom of movement to enable you to overcome obstacles and move quickly over varied terrain. Look for a model with stretch panels or side slits for greater range of movement. Also make sure the cut of the shorts matches your body shape, offering a comfortable fit without being too tight or too loose.

3. Functional pockets :

When you’re running long distances, it’s essential to have functional pockets to carry your small essentials such as energy gels, keys, a cell phone or a map. Check that the trail shorts have secure pockets, ideally on the back or sides, to avoid distractions and give you easy access to your gear during the race.

Moov360 offers a range of different trail shorts for men and women, featuring several ultra-functional pockets. Whether in the back or on the sides, with or without a zip, they’ll make it easy to carry all your essentials (keys, phone, water bottle, energy bar…).

4. Reflective elements :

If you often run at dawn, dusk or at night, it’s important to be visible for your safety. Opt for trail shorts with reflective elements or reflective details, such as logos or stripes, which will improve your visibility and enable you to be spotted by other trail runners or vehicles.

If you’re looking for the ideal trail shorts to accompany you on all your outdoor outings, we’ve got the solution for you: Moov360 shorts. They tick all the boxes of the criteria we mentioned earlier, including lightweight, breathable materials, freedom of movement, functional pockets and reflective logos. Available for men and women, these trail shorts will be your allies for optimum performance and maximum comfort during your adventures in the great outdoors.

We offer these qualities in two different shorts, the Corbassière model in different colors and the Alttitude collection in black with a yellow logo. The latter is made from a highly technical bi-elastic material manufactured in Italy, with the thread designed in France. This fabric is one of the best in the world for trail running, as it is ultra-breathable and therefore dries even faster, while remaining elastic and comfortable. These shorts are particularly suited to professional use, for long-duration efforts.
