Mountain Hardwear Talus Pack Shorts

These shorts are a miracle of modern engineering, featuring welded seams that promise no chafing and reduce weight. The fabric is laced with elastane to give extra stretch and there’s a micro-chamois area around the waist for comfort. They feel almost creepily perfect, but perform exceptionally well outdoors. (Women’s Futuna shorts also available.)
