Salomon Vertigo Shorts

Made from actiLITE Tech nylon, these were noticeably the lightest shorts we reviewed, making them an ideal extra to throw in your sack if the weather looks promising. They have a sun protection factor of UPF 50 and benefit from draw-string adjustment at the waist (ideal if you shed a few pounds on a long distance path). Simple, but all you need.
