Palm Horizon Womens Shorts Reviewed

Palm Horizon Womens Shorts

RRP: £64.95

Colour: Aqua

Size: W/L (UK14)

I’m still getting used to the fact that women’s kayaking clothes seem to fit rather easily now and I was super stoked when my Palm Shorts arrived.  The initial fit was good, Neoprene waist band fits snuggly across the stomach and hips, helping keep the shorts in place, but we all know how paddling down a river and jumping in and out a boat can twist and pull at clothing…

Well I can confirm, for me, this did not happen with these shorts.  Once they’re on, the movement is minimal and even after a swim my shorts were still firmly in place!  The fleece liner was warm and soft on my legs and thankfully not too tight against the skin.  It can get quite sweaty if you’re sitting around in the heat after a paddle but they definitely keep me warm enough on the ice melt rivers I’ve had them on so far!

The outside windproof shell looks good and fits the thighs and bum well.  My only criticism on this is the rigidity of the outside shell, however, I’ve been told this will soften with wear


  • Excellent Fit and shape
  • Doesn’t ride up or down when kayaking             
  • Looks great on
  • Comfortable fleece liner 
  • Value for money


  • Rigid outside shell
  • Only comes in one colour

I would recommend these shorts and hope in the future Palm will offer a few more colours to chose from
