The Odlo Flow shorts are extremely comfortable, made with a lightweight, double-weaved nylon material that is both soft to the touch and good against the skin. Although soft and breathable, a DWR treatment wards off showers, and the lightweight material dries off quickly, even if you do get a drenching. Add this to good wind resistance, and you've got a free-moving, comfy pair of shorts which is suitable for all types of activities and weather conditions.
The slim-fit is more suited to serious walkers who put performance above casual style, however the benefit is you're not going to get snagged on anything - even a coffee bar stool.
In line with the fairly minimal styling, the Flows feature two side pockets with hidden zips, so you can keep your belongings safe. There are no belt loops but a wide elastic waistband at the back of the shorts ensures a secure fit.
Overall these are comfy, practical shorts for serious walking or hiking in all weather but the steep price tag makes them a considered buy.
