Haglöfs L.I.M Fuse Shorts | Review

These minimalist, durable, shorts from Haglofs are suitable for a variety of activities

Why We Chose The Haglöfs L.I.M Fuse Shorts: Lightweight, excellent stretch, quick-drying properties

A brand that regularly serves up quality gear, Swedish clothing brand Haglöfs are no strangers to our annual Outdoor 100. A fusing together of minimalism and functionality, their L.I.M Fuse shorts are a fine showcase of what keeps their fans coming back year after year. These shorts are, we think, absolutely perfect for when you’re getting out and about on the hot ones.

Who Are The Haglofs L.I.M Fuse Shorts For?

If you’re planning to make the most of your relative freedom this summer by going for a load of long walks in the hills, these shorts have got your name written all over them. Anyone who prefers to spend the warm months getting active in the outdoors, rather than chilling on a beach with a rocket lolly, will appreciate what this hiking lifestyle item brings to the table.


Made from bluesign-certified Climatic fabric which is 93% Polyamide and 7% Elastane, these shorts will stretch with your movements rather than keep you ‘locked in’ like some shorts can. They also have superb moisture management properties and, thanks to Fluorocarbon-free DWR treatment will protect you against the elements.

We’ve touched upon this briefly in the materials section above already, but the stretchiness of these shorts are one of the best things about them. By going with your movement rather than working against it, it’s a set-up that nicely elevates things in the comfort stakes.

“The shorts also come in a variety of colourways, meaning you can get a pair that’ll suit your summer aesthetic.”

Speaking of comfort, the elasticated waistband with internal drawcord here means the fit of the L.I.M Fuse shorts can be optimised to suit the wearer.

Two open hand pockets and one zippered thigh pocket mean you’ve got options here when it comes to storing essentials, and standing around looking moody.

The shorts also come in a variety of colourways, meaning you can get a pair that’ll suit your summer aesthetic. The colours available are ‘Maroon Red’, ‘Stone Grey’, ‘Tarn Blue’, ‘Deep Woods’ and ‘Magnetite’.


With an RRP around the £56 mark, they might seem slightly on the steep side. However, when you consider how versatile, functional, and comfortable they are there’s a case to be made that they’re well worth the investment.
