The Maui shorts are for people who need comfort and freedom of movement in a rugged pair of warm weather shorts.

During warm weather activities you need clothing that helps you stay cool while providing protection from harmful UV rays (UPF 50+). You also need secure storage for your walking and travel essentials.

The Maui shorts combine the cool, protective and durable Parameta A Cotton+ fabric with secure, hidden pocketing. They also ensure excellent freedom of movement for a wide range of warm weather activities.


The Maui shorts provide secure storage while protecting the wearer from harmful UV rays.

  • Unrestricted movement is provided by a tried and tested shaped gusset.
  • Generous and secure storage from a rear zipped pocket, pleated map sized cargo pocket and two hip pockets.
  • Safe, hidden storage from a zipped passport-sized pocket within the cargo pocket.


Parameta® A fabrics are rapid evaporation fabrics that help to keep you cool and protect you in warm environments.

Parameta A
All Parameta A fabrics wick very effectively, rapidly spreading perspiration over a large area to provide maximum evaporation in order to keep you cool at higher temperatures. It blocks virtually all damaging UV rays (UPF 50+), and the close weave deters biting insects.

Parameta A fabric comes in assorted weights to suit different requirements:

  • Parameta A Light for travel shirts (100% polyester)
  • Parameta A Cotton+ for legwear (cotton blended with modern synthetics for a rugged, fast-drying fabric).

How will my Páramo Cotton+ garments outperform other travel outer wear?

The Nikwax Cotton+ fabric used for Páramo’s travel jackets and gilets provides superior performance for warm weather outerwear. The blend of cotton with modern synthetics provides the best qualities of both fabrics. More lightweight and fast-drying than many other comparable garments, they are tough, UV protective and highly wind resistant — ideal for load carrying in warm conditions.

In what weather conditions can I use my Maui shorts?

The lightweight Maui shorts provide UV protection (UPF 50+), making them ideal for warm weather activities. The fabric is cool and quick drying, spreading moisture laterally to keep you cool. Because the fabric is not waterproof and is designed to wick effectively, this garment is not suitable for cold, wet conditions. In this case we recommend a Nikwax Analogy® or Nikwax Wind Resistor garment.

Which garments should I use with my Nikwax Cotton+ garment to get optimum performance?

Nikwax Cotton+ is a lightweight, fast-drying fabric, providing protection from the wind, harmful UV rays and biting insects. It is designed to work in warmer conditions and does not offer any significant insulation.

It is particularly effective when combined with our ultra-cooling, high wicking Parameta® A travel shirts.

Alternatively it can be combined with any of our wicking baselayers using Parameta T, T+ or G.


How do I look after this Páramo item?

This garment can be treated with renewable PFC-free Nikwax water-repellency to help it dry more quickly and reduce weight gain if it gets wet.

Maintain its performance with these Nikwax products:

Cotton Proof: adds PFC-free Durable Water Repellency to speed drying and renew breathability.

Tech Wash: cleans effectively, reviving breathability and aiding water repellency.

What if I damage my Páramo clothing?
