These hiking shorts were created for light winds and very warm weather conditions. The material of choice is the stretchy, very comfortable and fresh 1.5mm M-flex airprene (perforated neoprene). The preformed thin (1mm) superstretch inserts in the crotch area make these hikers comfortable even when crouched inside the boat. The AirXlight shorts are extremely comfortable and light, but still maintain a high level of hiking performance due to the application on the upper legs that prevents the battens from moving. Unlike the long pants the shorts do not have suspenders but a velcro side adjustment at the belt.
