The North Face Women’s Altertude Shorts

Haven’t you heard? The Eighties are back! Bring on the elasticated waists, scrunchies, and bright contrast.

Women's Altertude Short Cosmic Blue

Make a statement in these comfy, colourful shorts. They are so loose and comfortable that you might just forget that you’re wearing anything (until you look down).

They’re lightweight to boot, at only 99g.

A generous zippered pocket in the back is big enough to fit a large cellphone and few keys. Built-in briefs are soft and stretchy, not allowing the load in the rear pocket to pull the shorts down, nor letting the shorts ride up.

Gathering from the waistband, the fabric allows plenty of room for movement and ventilation.

The fabric has a spandex look, but is light, low-stretch, and quick-drying. This is due to the FlashDryTM technology, which will never wash or wear out! During testing, on a muggy day, the shorts were the driest of the reviewer’s sweat-soaked gear, and the pattern hid all muddy marks.

Made from 97% recycled polyester, these shorts are not only great for your summer workout, they’re environmentally friendly.

Make a bright statement, and stay cool on the trails, with the TNF Altertude Short.

From the tester’s mouth:

“I find myself reaching for these more often than not. The combination of a generous pocket, soft inner-brief, and loose fit makes it perfect for hot Durban runs. I love the fact that the waistband doesn’t ride up or down like most shorts and tights. A zipped pocket means peace of mind for my keys and phone (both of which have taken a dive while on the trail in my pre-Altertude days).” Heloise, SA
