Men’s Outback Shorts

Debuting in the Spring 1985 Catalogue, Men’s Outback Shorts did not run as long as Women’s Outback Shorts: “Hiking the harsh, demanding Outback, you carry as little extra equipment as possible and look for practical ways to distribute essentials. How best to manage this problem? Witness our Outback Shorts with expandable cargo bellows pockets and wide belt loops for fastenting canteen, army knife and compass. For valuables–the loops hold a money belt (as shown).”
