The North Face Women's Paramount Highland Short:
Every year we add one or two versions of Paramount convertible pants and shorts from The North Face, but we really liked the fitted finish of the Paramount Highland Short over travel apparel with elastic waists. If you're looking for a travel or hike short with an inseam cut that won't destroy your hard-earned tan lines, the Paramount Highland Short is a no-brainer. The rugged and lightweight nylon Paramount fabric on The North Face Paramount Highland Short is tough enough to last through several years of hard use. We also like the 30+ Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) sun protection for those exposed sunny stretches of alpine trail. The jeans-style pockets in front and back on the Paramount Highland Short have Tek Mesh throughout the lining for fast drying and minimal lumps and bumps from excess fabric.
