Why We Built This

These stretchy shorts are built for optimum, on-the-go comfort. Slip ‘em on for all your warm-weather, active endeavors.

Why It's Different

The Mariposa Short combines spandex and recycled polyester for a more eco-conscious fabric blend.

About This Product


Your life is all about maximizing mobility, so we made a pair of shorts with the same goal—the Women’s Mariposa Short. These soft, supportive shorts feature a high-rise waist for total comfort when you’re flowing through your yoga practice or bouldering at the gym, and the internal waistband stash pocket secures your smartphone, car key, and credit card during quick trail adventures. We also gave the Mariposa flatlock seams throughout for improved durability and next-to-skin comfort.


  • Supportive blend of recycled polyester and spandex
  • Polygiene® odor-control technology embedded in the fabric
  • High-waist silhouette
  • Internal stash pocket on back waistband
  • Durable flatlock seams

Why You'll Love It

Polygiene® Odor-Control Technology

The Mariposa Short’s fabric blend is embedded with Polygiene® odor-control technology to stop the growth of odor-causing bacteria during extended travels and long active days.

Moves with You

There’s nothing worse than a restrictive pair of shorts. These are made from a stretchy blend of recycled polyester and spandex, giving you ample range of motion.

Details that Count

Vibrant colors, a high-waist cut, and an internal waistband pocket? Yes please.
