What have we done to reduce our environmental impact?
The main fabric of these trousers contains 79% organic cotton.
Since 2006, we have been using organic cotton, a small market that currently accounts for just 0.4% of global cotton production. The cotton is grown without chemical fertilisers and pesticides. It protects biodiversity, soil fertility and reduces the risk of groundwater pollution.

Your opinion is important to us!
Thanks to your feedback, we have improved the design and concept of the NH500 Fresh shorts.
In this new model, we have changed the component to add elastane (2%) to improve your freedom of movement. The component is also lighter. We have also changed the shape of the shorts and increased the depth of the pockets to reduce loss of objects. Finally, we have improved the cut of the shorts at the crotch.

Our design team conceives, designs and creates Quechua products in France, at the foot of Mont Blanc. We test them in the field with other hikers, to check their comfort and durability. In the Fontainebleau Forest, Brittany or even Corsica for example. We go to as many trails as possible in all weather conditions. This creates plenty of opportunities for discussions to get your feedback which is used to plan our future products!
These NH500 Fresh shorts were tested and approved in April 2019 by a tester group during a walk on the island of La Réunion.
