Vertex Long Shorts are the lightest zero degree (0oC/32oF) down trousers we’ve designed – for adventure racers, lightweight backpackers, bike-packers, multistage ultra-runners, lightweight campers and wilderness trampers and anyone who needs the lightest. 

The natural complement to the Vertex Jacket. Cosy camp gear, which will boost the warmth of your sleeping bag too. This is the ideal warmer for spring, summer & autumn camping, when that cold little evening wind makes the sunny afternoon a distant memory. And if the night's a bit colder than you expected, keep the Vertex Long Shorts on inside your bag: a definite booster, particularly if you've got the Vertex Jacket on too.

For the midsummer months we're launching our Vertex Collection: the lightest Down Vest, Jacket, Shorts, and Sleeping Bags in their class. Only available May and June at never to be repeated prices.
