The Maui shorts are for people who need comfort and freedom of movement in a rugged pair of warm weather shorts.

During warm weather activities you need clothing that helps you stay cool while providing protection from harmful UV rays (UPF 50+). You also need secure storage for your walking and travel essentials.

The Maui shorts combine the cool, protective and durable Parameta A Cotton+ fabric with secure, hidden pocketing. They also ensure excellent freedom of movement for a wide range of warm weather activities.

The Maui shorts provide secure storage while protecting the wearer from harmful UV rays.

  • Unrestricted movement is provided by a tried and tested shaped gusset.
  • Generous and secure storage from a rear zipped pocket, pleated map sized cargo pocket and two hip pockets.
  • Safe, hidden storage from a zipped passport-sized pocket within the cargo pocket.

Parameta® A fabrics are rapid evaporation fabrics that help to keep you cool and protect you in warm environments.

Parameta A FabricAll Parameta A fabrics wick very effectively, rapidly spreading perspiration over a large area to provide maximum evaporation in order to keep you cool at higher temperatures. It blocks virtually all damaging UV rays (UPF 50+), and the close weave deters biting insects.

Parameta A fabric comes in assorted weights to suit different requirements:

  • Parameta A Light for travel shirts (100% polyester)
  • Parameta A Cotton+ for legwear (cotton blended with modern synthetics for a rugged, fast-drying fabric).

Choose the Maui shorts for warm weather comfort and protection...

The Maui shorts use rugged Parameta A Cotton+ fabric that is cool, lightweight and quick-drying and also protects you from harmful UV rays (UPF 50+). The 5 pockets provide ample storage while a clever design maximises comfort and freedom of movement. So expect warm weather protection coupled with useful pocketing in a travel-friendly package.

How will my Páramo Cotton+ garments outperform other travel outer wear?

The Nikwax Cotton+ fabric used for Páramo’s travel jackets and gilets provides superior performance for warm weather outerwear. The blend of cotton with modern synthetics provides the best qualities of both fabrics. More lightweight and fast-drying than many other comparable garments, they are tough, UV protective and highly wind resistant — ideal for load carrying in warm conditions.

  1. Fabric provides protection from UV rays (UPF 50+) and biting insects
  2. Easy to wash and quick to dry, ideal when travelling
  3. OS Map sized cargo pocket with secure hook and loop fastening
  4. Zipped passport sized internal pocket “hidden” within cargo pocket for secure storage of travel essentials
  5. Secure zipped pocket on the rear provides additional storage
  6. 2 front “jeans style” hand pockets
  7. Elasticated waist with belt loops for a secure and comfortable fit
  8. Unrestricted movement from a shaped gusset

People who have bought the Men’s Maui Shorts say this about them...

“Comfortable, durable and completely practical. Plentiful pockets (including the travel-friendly stealth variety) make them the ideal travel companion.”

Peter Ridley

Grough“All in all, this makes for a comfortable pair of shorts, aimed mainly at travellers in warm climes, but we found them equally at home on the UK hills on warmer days. There’s no restriction on movement when stepping up.”

grough.co.uk, gear review site

“I have just received the Maui II Shorts and am delighted with the product. It has taken me some time to source shorts/trousers that function as walking trousers in that they have a proper map pocket. You should advertise that they take an OS laminated map. I think they are one of the best walking clothing products I have seen for some time. Many thanks and please don't stop making them!”

In what weather conditions can I use my Maui shorts?

The lightweight Maui shorts provide UV protection (UPF 50+), making them ideal for warm weather activities. The fabric is cool and quick drying, spreading moisture laterally to keep you cool. Because the fabric is not waterproof and is designed to wick effectively, this garment is not suitable for cold, wet conditions. In this case we recommend a Nikwax Analogy® or Nikwax Wind Resistor garment.

Which garments should I use with my Nikwax Cotton+ garment to get optimum performance?

Nikwax Cotton+ is a lightweight, fast-drying fabric, providing protection from the wind, harmful UV rays and biting insects. It is designed to work in warmer conditions and does not offer any significant insulation.

It is particularly effective when combined with our ultra-cooling, high wicking Parameta® A travel shirts.

Alternatively it can be combined with any of our wicking baselayers using Parameta T, T+ or G.
