Prometheus Design Werx’s best selling EDC Short from 2016 returns at the peak of the 2017 summer season in a new Wolf Gray colorway, along with their popular Dark Arid Earth and Dark Leaf Green colors. This short design features their proprietary 4-way stretch Guide Cloth for unrivaled comfort in a short in this category. From trail to street the EDC Short is designed for every day wear. Designed for today’s active EDC user in mind, these shorts are designed with a total of 11 pockets to stash and organize as little or as many EDC items in a streamlined, clean and tailored design. Pocket Clip Docks™ are found on the main hand pockets to accommodate the clips of folding knives and flashlights. Dual no-twist custom made delta rings for keychain-carabiner clip points. Produced with industrial grade triple needle stitching on all major seams. Cut and sewn in San Francisco, California, USA.

The EDC Short is an evergreen seasonal style for Prometheus Design Werx and part of their Built in the USA CORE-Line.


The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“We wanted to create the short that we would wear every day on and off the grid. This is not a mass volume, compromised, lowest common denominator product. No corners were cut, no corporate budgeting committees to answer to, we stuck to the intelligent features we wanted, and secured the best in class materials to make this short. You will not find superfluous details or unnecessary affectations in outcome of our design process in crafting these shorts. Each feature and component serves a purpose for utility, versatility, movement, and comfort. The industrial grade construction was perhaps a bit overkill, but hell, our office is a metal shop. Our proprietary Guide Cloth is some of the most comfortable technical performance fabric we’ve ever developed, used and worn. We also made sure to produce these shorts locally in CA with skilled labor being paid a living wage. This is a pair of shorts that will be long wearing and worn frequently.”

The 2017 edition of the EDC Short in Guide Cloth will be available on Wednesday July 12, 2017 @ 12noon via their website,
