Mission Workshop Apoch Shorts

Whilst we’re in the midst of a mini heatwave here at Coolector HQ, it goes without saying our clothing choices are all about shorts at the minute and we find ourselves on the hunt for some adventure ready apparel that can be worn in ridiculously hot weather. This leads us nicely onto these superb looking Mission Workshop Apoch Shorts which are just some of the coolest looking on the market, they’re also some of the top performing to boot.

Fairly priced at £120, these Mission Workshop Apoch Shorts are billed as a do-it-all pair of shorts which have been purpose built for activities like hiking, climbing and casual biking with clean tailored lines that seamlessly blend into the city or backcountry. Available in grey or black, these top notch shorts are stylish enough to be worn to your taproom with impunity but robust enough to be ready for any wilderness wander – the definition of win, win.

Hit The Hiking Roots

We’ve featured Mission Workshop on the pages of The Coolector a lot in the past and we’re only too aware of the considerable quality of their wares and this latest offering, the Apoch Shorts, is certainly no exception. Each pair is crafted from an incredibly durable and hard-wearing stretch-nylon textile that sheds light rain (DWR), is breathable, dries quickly when wet, and stretches for enhanced range of motion. So, long story short, will keep pace with you on any outdoor adventures this summer and autumn.

The Mission Workshop Apoch Shorts (£120) boast a similar design and fit to the brand’s best-selling Stahl shorts with an added built in webbing belt that will help to keep the shorts exactly where they belong when wearing a pack or harness. The Apoch Shorts are available in two different fits- either straight and slim – so you can pick the one that best fits your style and wear requirements. The straight fit closely matches the Stahl and the slim fit is slightly narrower in the leg opening for a bit more of a fashion conscious fit.

Made in California, each pair of Apoch Shorts from Mission Workshop has got a lot of stand out features that helps set them apart from the competition. Some of the most eye-catching of these features includes the built in webbing belt, purpose built knife pocket, two way stretch, DWR material for all-weather activities and two back and two hand pockets for keeping all your essential EDC close to hand.

All Action Shorts

Most shorts are built for either style or action but seldom both but these Mission Workshop Apoch Shorts do a fine job of straddling the line between the two. Made from incredibly robust materials but designed with both work and play in mind, they have the sort of aesthetic that is suitable for more or less any occasion. The quality of the finish is second to none and you’ll not find a more adventure ready pair of shorts on the market.

Available for £120, which is a fair price when you consider the excellent materials that have gone into their craftsmanship and the versatility of their performance. If you’ve long been searching for the ultimate pair of shorts which are ready for anything at the drop of a hat, you’ve just found them.
