Prometheus Design Werx – Rapide Field Short


Prometheus Design Werx introduces the Rapide Field Short 5050RS for the start of the 2017 Summer Season. These are the one wilderness grade, expedition capable, all around outdoor short that will tackle any land-based adventure.


Ultra clean, purpose driven design and styling will confidently take you from trekking to the top of a mountain peak, discovering a mysterious desert ruin, to sharing your tales of adventure with new friends in a hidden tavern. Utterly functional design to industrial work wear grade construction and bespoke tailor level detailing makes these the one field short to rule them all.

These are a best in class, field and utility short for exploring the wilderness, use on expeditions, overlanding to warm weather camping and the workshop.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“We set out to make the finest, modern field and utility short for the discriminating and demanding adventurer. The one outdoor short the user would go back to again and again. The MILSPEC 5050 NYCO is not bulky or too heavy yet is robust and rugged enough to last season after season. The cut suits most body types and the leg hits right above the knee for ease of movement-bending-scrambling on the trail but long enough to use with any climbing and rap harness. Our new horseshoe gusset pattern gives even more range of movement while being active. Like our other CORE-Line apparel styles, the Rapide Field Short is an apex apparel style and uses best in class US production quality. The highest single cost component in the production of this short, is skilled US labor. There are 20 years of performance apparel design study and experience behind these shorts. Followers of our design ethos have been in some of the world’s most wild and dangerous places, and require apparel and goods that perform superbly and can be relied on. We believe we built the finest American field and utility short available today. Overbuilt, packed with functional design details and features, our core customers are men of capability, detail, confidence, and discriminating taste who understand what goes into our goods. The outcome of this design created a clean styling that is easily paired with a tee, flannel or technical fleece. To our amusement, we’ve even had numerous bespoke suit tailors comment how impressed they have been with our functional apparel styles. These shorts are intended to be the one all-rounder style that can be used over and over for the field, for adventure, for expeditions, chaotic travel to street and warm weather work wear.”
