A quick-drying, lightweight running short built for the alpine athlete. Now with an updated, quick-drying interior liner.

If you want one pair of high output, active shorts, look no further. Meridian™ ripstop nylon is super fast drying while newly updated inner briefs are comfy and cool. The Second Light comes equipped with two hand pockets, a zippered security pocket in the back for a gel pack or key, and a fixed, low-pro waistband that works well under a pack's hip belt when the trail calls your name. It's also naturally packable—at only 5 ounces, you can stuff a pair in your running shoes while traveling—perfect for weekend getaways where plans can change from trailhead to poolside. Sits at the hip with an 8“ inseam.
