All about this product



Named for the Japanese phonetic for expedition, the Tanken range is designed for working up a sweat in the great outdoors. This means the Tanken Shorts are light, durable, quick-drying and, thanks to FlashDry technology, moisture wicking too. The Men's Tanken Shorts from The North Face are constructed with ripstop nylon for durability, and offer breathability for all-day comfort. The waist is semi-elasticated for additional freedom of movement, while two front pockets, including a zipped security pocket, provide plenty of room for essentials. The Taken is an ideal choice for summer trekking but also offer a classy casual style.

About this brand

The North Face
Founded in 1966 The North Face is named after the coldest, most unforgiving and harshest face of a mountain. Yet it was born on a sun-soaked Californian beach by two friends who shared a passion for climbing and the outdoors. Today, the iconic ‘Half Dome’ logo can be found the world over.

Basking on the sea shore, breaking virgin powder in the Alps, or standing on the summit of Everest. All because The North Face clothing and equipment is trusted by people who place their lives in the knowledge and ability of a world leading brand.


The North Face achieves this level of trust and success because of their tireless attitude towards innovation and progress. Which means their waterproof jackets, their super warm down vests and their extensive range of bags, footwear and clothing are all made with the common belief that you should never stop exploring.
