Additional Information

Story
The pinnacle of freedom of movement is of course being naked, but the classic runner's split short comes pretty damn close. Both share two weaknesses though. One, that freedom of movement completely melts away in social situations unless you are particularly immodest and two, neither gives you much in the way of pockets for carrying stuff.

The Ultralight Split Mids are designed for extreme freedom of movement and activity in social situations. The longer length provides coverage, the tacked split keeps them from flying open in flexible positions and the front zip pocket and smuggler's waistband means you can carry your phone and some cash around.

The four-way stretch doubleweave Ultralight Cloth is lightweight with a soft three dimensional inner face that reduces skin contact for comfort. It's UPF 50+ with a light water resistance too, but it's a short so that's more of a bonus than a feature, but it does help them stay a bit cleaner.
Fabric
Ultralight Logo
Ultralight Cloth is soft and flexible with an elegant drape. Durable for its weight (145gsm) and rated UPF 50+, it's meant to handle the summer with ease.

The Ultralight Cloth is a yarn-dyed doublewoven intimate blend of various nylons. The micro-nylon fibers create a soft loose inner weave that helps pull moisture from the skin, while slightly thicker nylon is tightly woven on the outside to give it a degree of water resistance. The self-cleaning NanoSphere® treatment adds in some wine, beer and iced coffee resistance. A four-way stretch means you'll move with a breezy freedom all across a beautiful summer.

We wanted to see how this fabric handles sunlight, specifically UV radiation, so we sent it out for testing. The results show that a single layer of Ultralight Cloth blocks the transmittance of over 99% of UV radiation, giving the Ultralight Cloth an Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 50+, the highest rating possible.
