Runners can be fickle when it comes to shorts and with good reason. You want something that’s breathable, that wicks moisture, and moves with you, but you also want something that looks great and has the streamlined pocketing needed to keep small essentials at the ready. Well, Outdoor Research delivers on all of those demands with their Swift Lite Shorts. The bluesign-approved recycled polyester exterior has a comfortable feel, has integrated stretch, and uses laser-cut vents to further increase breathability. A gusseted crotch and notched hem enhance fit and maneuverability. In addition to moving moisture and drying quickly, the fabric also provides valuable UPF 30 sun protection. An interior polyester/spandex liner adds chafe-free comfort. Throw in a streamlined zippered security pocket (on the back for men and on the left side for women) and you’ve got one great pair of running shorts!
