Lightweight, comfortable shorts that are ideal for hard gym sessions or long ultra runs. With a lycra inner to reduce any chances of chaffing while breathing really well, wicking and drying quickly.
The ultralight 2in1 short combines a long leg inner short in ultra comfortable DryLight fabric and an outer short in rip stop Eco polyester. The side pockets are attached directly to the inner short, this prevents the contents from bouncing too much causing annoyance and discomfort.
Raidlight's Ultralight Shorts are a light and airy piece of kit that suit high intensity activities. With a stretchy lycra inner short and a loose outer these shorts look good and work so well. I wouldn't go back to shorts without a lycra inner short for running again. The level of comfort through wicking and pretty much eliminating chaffing is so worth while. These shorts are ideal for long sessions with four stretch mesh pockets around the waist and an additional rear zip pocket for you to store all the keys, gels and snacks you want with you. I think there are too many pockets and rarely use more than the rear zip pocket but if I'm running for more than an hour or two I will be using a vest pack anyway.
These shorts are best in warmer conditions outdoors or for indoor activities as they work brilliantly in terms of breathability, wicking and drying. The thinner materials help with this but don't provide much warmth on genuinely colder days. The lycra undershort is designed to reduce friction which normally increases in warm, sweaty conditions too.
The Polyester Eco fabric used in this garment is recycled from plastic waste materials.
