I originally previewed these Outlier Ultralight Pants two weeks ago for Merckx Mondays and today the official PR went out for them. After swinging by Outlier today and seeing them in person, I can assure you that they’re unprecedented. Super light, soft and tough as all their garments.

Check out the PR below, along with a few more photos, or head over to Outlier for the scoop!

The ones that barely exist. The Ultralight Pants. Soft, supple and tough. Perfect for those hot situations where wearing shorts just won’t cut it. In fact they actually weigh a hair less then our Summer Shorts, despite the full leg. They breathe incredibly well, with a soft lux handfeel and elegant drape. Yet when it comes to durability they’ll outclass pants more than three times their weight.

The Ultralight fabric 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 and excellent abrasion resistance. The “self-cleaning” nanosphere treatment adds in some wine, beer and iced coffee resistance so you always step clean through those summer splashes. A four-way stretch means you’ll move with a breezy freedom all across a beautiful summer.

Made in New York City with Swiss fabric. Available in Minted Gray and Dusted Blue. $198 while they last. For more images and sizing.
