Arc'teryx Solita Short - Women's - $37.48

We tried to think of really lightweight objects that we could compare the Arc'teryx Solita Short to, but then we realized that lightweight objects actually aspire to be as light as the Solita Short. It really sets a standard. At a scant 3.2 ounces (102 grams), this short still boasts supremely comfortable articulated construction. Its Altavela stretch fabric wicks and dries in a snap, and its flatlock seams eliminate chafing or rubbing. A gusseted crotch maximizes your freedom of movement, and a wide, smooth waistband won't dig into your stomach. An integrated moisture-wicking brief lets you go undies-free (who wants extra bunched-up layers'), and a small zippered hip pocket stows your car key. - $37.48
