Inspired by looser Japanese silhouettes and pocketing, our Index Shorts are a new take on a versatile athletic short. We tweaked the everyday workout short with a maximalist pocketing system and our recycled polyester fabric made from water bottles—made for movement on the trail, in the gym, or through the city.
At 686 we understand that sustainability is not a destination but a way of behaving that aims to lessen our impact on the planet. For us, however, sustainability does not end there. We are committed to the fair and equitable treatment of everyone along our supply chain. Our commitment to people and the planet guides us.

A regular fit throughout the shorts with a length that extends to above the kneecaps.
Recycled Poly fabric, at its core, is a recycled polyester fabric. Each yard of fabric is generated from 7 plastic bottles. It just so happens to excel where movement or comfort are concerned. It’s a moisture wicking fabric that dries fast, keeps water and stains at bay with a DWR finish, and holds off the suns attack with a UPF of 40+. Our Recycled Poly fabric is comfort.
DWR (Durable Water Repellency) coating is the outermost finish applied to exclusive 686 fabrics increasing their contact angle and thus repelling water while maintaining high breathability. DWR also helps repel stains and oils that can damage your garment's surface.
