The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“Since first debuting these a year ago, the Rapide Field Short has quickly become our favorite for every day wear during warmer seasons. The newly updated Guide Cloth we’re now using also makes this short quite suitable for the spontaneous dunk into a mountain lake if the opportunity arises. And if it does, certainly don’t hold yourself back if you’ve got a pair of these on. The Guide Cloth 2.0 fabric totally moves with you, dries fast, and the mesh pocket liners drains water fast. We truly believe these will be the most comfortable field short you will wear and own. Just recently, one of us travelled from warm, dry and sunny Arizona for 7 days, then almost right back out for 5 days in hot muggy Georgia, and the one goto short was the Rapide in Guide Cloth. We’re glad that we can continue to build these in our home state of California, are looking forward to hitting the trails in the Sierra this summer, any other points out bound across our nation and beyond.”

The PDW Rapide Field Short GC will be available for purchase on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 12:00 Noon PDT via their website,
