It's also naturally packable— at only 4 oz. you can stuff a pair in your running shoes while traveling - perfect for weekend getaways where plans can change from trailhead to poolside.

Perfect for any activity
Review by Ian

Simply put, these are my new favorite shorts. I wear them for working out, hiking, fishing, swimming and find myself putting them on just because I love how they look (the Magnet Camo is even better in person). They are made of a tough, super lightweight material and dry very quickly - they have even replaced every other swimsuit I own. At 6 ft and 160 pounds, the Second Light Shorts in a medium are the best fitting pair of shorts I have.

Perfect trail/gym/swim shorts
Review by Burch

I love these shorts for all-around utility...so much so, that I bought a second pair in short order. I wear them hiking, to the gym and for water sports (paddle boarding, kayaking - impromptu swims ;-) Can't beat these when you want an ultralight, athletic-fit short for all your adventures. I should also add they dry super-fast.

Great Color, but a little long to for running
Review by PeterK

I bought these shorts because I was attracted to the color. And it is a great color, especially when paired with Divide Tech T. The material is nice as well; light and comfortable. However, they are just a little too long. Maybe if you were 7 feet tall they'd be just right, but for me at average height they need to be at least an inch shorter. And I thought running shorts were going back to a shorter length anyway?

Great shorts for just about anything
Review by MA Mike

I was looking for a short like this for a while. Nice and light. I can wear them running/hiking or to the gym. They dry quickly so you can also wear them for a dip in the pool/lake. Great product.

Not quite the perfect summer exercise short
Review by Bill

I don't know if the newer version of this short has changed, my only issue with them is the lack of eyelet holes in the pockets. They are very light; I use them for running, tennis and hanging around but if I jump in the ocean at the end of a run, the pockets don't drain. They would be perfect for my spring and summer activities if this was changed.
