New from Alpine Parrot, the makers of the outstanding Ponderosa Pants are the Cypress Shorts!

These lightweight super-comfy shorts are made from the same stretchy, quick-drying, and durable fabric as their best-selling longer-length sibling, the Ponderosa Pants. Boasting unique, high-up but deep side pockets, that can each hold a mobile phone, beverage, or even a Kindle, plus a comfortable, elastic waistband, these shorts are ideal for your warm-weather adventures.

Unlike the Ponderosa Pants, the Cypress Shorts only come in one Fit Style. The elasticated waist band means they fit a far wider range of body shapes so different fit styles have not been necessary after rigorous testing. 

To find your size please measure your body and compare to the size charts. Note that the sizing is different to Outdoor Research X sizes.


  • Elasticized waistband with belt loops for comfort
  • 9" inseam
  • Two deep side pockets
  • Quick-dry, breathable, and abrasion-resistant material
  • UPF 40 for sun protection

Fabric & Care

Easy-care, planet-friendly, abrasion-resistant fabric with two-way stretch and UPF 40 protection.

94% nylon / 6% elastane body; 86% nylon / 14% spandex waistband.

Made in a WRAP Certified factory in Honduras.

Wash in cold water with a mild detergent. Tumble dry on low heat or hang to dry. We don’t recommend ironing your shorts, but you can use the nylon setting (low heat) for a quick touch-up if needed.

Size charts: Alpine Parrot Cypress Shorts

This chart is based on body measurements. Please use a tape measure to find your bust, waist and hip size, and find the closest fit.

Note: there is just one 'fit style' in the shorts because the waist is elasticated.
