Prometheus Design Werx has introduced their new expedition grade, field short with low profile cargo pockets in Technical Ripstop Nylon – the Delta Cargo Short TRS – for Summer 2021.

The Delta Cargo Short TRS is designed for rigorous and protracted adventures and exploration. Constructed in a new, 6.13oz, technical, 4-way stretch Technical Ripstop nylon with a quick-dry and DWR finish for durable wear, these shorts are built for use in all terrains and climates. They are also expertly produced with industrial grade triple needle stitching on all major seams, and proudly made in California, USA.

A total of 13 pockets to stash and organize as little or as many EDC items as the user needs. Pocket Clip Docks™, quad no-twist custom made Delta-Rings for keychain-carabiner clip points, double reinforced seat, and a Hide-Away waistband pocket round out these shorts’ features.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW went on to explain the inspiration behind this design:

“A number of years back we remember a story in National Geographic documenting an epic transect of the Amazon. This was an amazingly grueling and challenging lateral traverse of the entire Amazon by a team of scientists and explorers making their way often if not usually in, dense, tractless jungle and nameless waterways. We thought, what short would we wear if we found ourselves on a similar journey. Something that would stand the constant wear over many months if not years in soggy, rough, and utterly wild environments. We trialed numerous technical fabrics, to finally arrive at our TRS (Technical Ripstop) fabric, which would dry quickly, withstand frequent abrasion, allow plenty of movement and at the same time not be so heavy, it would be a chore to wear. We chose to add the low-profile cargo pockets to this design to cover the additional storage needs while on the go. While most of us won’t find ever ourselves transecting the Amazon, the Delta Cargo Short TRS is ideal for many of summer’s adventurous pursuits on land or in and around water. From packrafting, jungle trekking, international adventure travel, or a 30 day backpack, these shorts are built to withstand the most challenging adventures.”
