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.
