Technical information

Size advice

These shorts have a straight cut that is neither too close, nor too loose fitting. Its length is above the knee. The material in the shorts contains elastane. If you are between sizes, we advise you to choose the smaller size. When you buy them, or after washing, the shorts may seem tight, but they relax a little with use (like jeans containing elastane).

What have we done to reduce our environmental impact?

The main fabric that these trousers are made from contains 79% organically grown cotton.
Since 2006, we have been using organic cotton, a relatively small market that currently accounts for just 0.4% of global cotton production. It is cotton grown without chemical fertilisers or pesticides. It preserves biodiversity, soil fertility and reduces the risk of polluting the water tables.

Our design team thinks up, draws and designs the Quechua products at the foot of the Mont Blanc, in France.
We test them in the field with other hikers, to check their comfort and durability. In the Fontainebleau Forest, Brittany or even Corsica for example. We go on as many footpaths as possible, in all weather conditions. This creates plenty of opportunities for discussion to get your feedback which is used to plan our future products!
