WK Supershorts (8oz)
You asked, and we answered. customers in warmer climates have asked for a lighter weight version of the WK Short – and here it is!
Made from the same 8oz c-canvas fabric as the WK Lites the lite supershorts give all the rugged good looks of the standard supershorts, but with a slightly lighter weight – perfect for those more tropical climates – or simply for people who prefer a lighter weight short.
Still super durable and super breathable – these puppies will outlast the summer sun for sure.
- Proofed 8oz C-Canvas – all the wayfrom the land of edam and windmills
- Bar-tacked at all stress points
- YKK zip
- Phone pocket for easy access to your digital companion
- Available in some custom leg length options
- Colour: Black (only)
- Weight: 500grams
- Fabric: Proofed European 8oz C-Canvas
- In response to numerous requests from our more out there customers we are offering the shorts in three leg lengths.
- Standard length which gives nice, total thigh coverage.
- The mid-thigh version is around 12 cms shorter than standard length
- And the risqué shorty short option is a full - you bet ya - 24 cms shorter than standard length.
- Please note that custom length shorts and trousers cannot be returned so please choose and measure carefully - call or email us if you are not sure
- Use mild detergent or pure soap (preferably one that's nice to the earth)
- Our canvas has a water resistant coating which can shift and discolour through the initial break in period
- For best results handwash until the garment is broken in machine washing is fine after this
- Drip dry without creases (it won't take long as the polyester in the fabric doesn't hold much water)
- Close zips while washing (they'll last longer)
- If you get attacked by a pig and the fabric gets holed while saving your reproductive potential send it back and we'll patch it
|WK Supershort sizing chart - make sure you measure yourself where you intend to wear the waist band as every manufacturer sizes differently so you can't reliably base your size on other garments.
|Waist - these are actual waist band measurements excluding the overlap for the button. ie, from the edge of the fly round your waist to the same edge. The pants don't stretch or shrink but they will "give" about 1cm once the fabric has softened. Worth noting, particularly if you're at the top end of a size range.||CM|

Customer Reviews:HarpoonKing (Monday, 20 February 2012)
Got a pair for my 16th. best pair of shorts I have ever owned! (Custom length) Just wo
in now. Hillarious when first bought as they stood up on their own. Had a catch up with a friend that had just completed a 3 week outward bound course, he proptly informed me of his monumentous jealousy towards my shorts, as they are gorse proof. I am now saving my pocket money for some pants or even a Jacket. Cactus I love you and can't wait to get more gear. You may be pricey, but why bother buying a $100 pair of pants that will last you a year when a $200 dollar cactus pair will last you 10.
