Cypress Shorts



The Cypress Shorts are a lightweight, must-have closet staple that are made from the same stretchy, quick-drying, and durable fabric as our best-selling Ponderosa Pants. Their summertime sibling, if you will. Boasting unique, deep, side pockets that can each hold a cell phone, beverage, or even a Kindle, plus a comfortable, elastic waistband, these shorts are ideal for your warm-weather adventures.

Different from our other offerings, the Cypress Shorts only come in one Fit Style. We know, we know. Our Fit Styles are what set us apart and help us provide a superior fit. But trust us when we say this decision was made after vigorous testing with two Fit Styles and then realizing that the elastic waistband allows for a more utilitarian fit. Try them and celebrate for yourself.

They FIT!

I have a hard time finding bottoms because my waist and hips are different sizes and these shorts fit just right. Love love love the long inseam. Thank you Alpine Parrot.

in LOVE with these shorts

Super excited to get these today!! (earlier than I expected based on the preorder!) they are SO COMFORTABLE. Excellent length to stop any inner thigh rubbing, great stretchy waist, really lightweight but soft fabric. 10/10! I was worried about the fit when I initially ordered, because there wasn't the Mountain style that made me love the pants so much, but both waist and hips are a great fit. I'm 39" waist, 52" hips in a size 2 -- no waist gap! If only it was already warm enough to hike in them!

For the days that are long, we made shorts.

One Fit Style For All

These summer essentials have so much stretch in them that they're great for every shape!
