The North Face says about the Speedlight Short Women's
Like the Speedlight Trousers, the Speedlight Shorts are rugged and durable yet light and stretchy. Made for summer activities above the tree line, these quick-drying shorts boast FlashDry™ fabric that actively wicks away sweat. WindWall™ technology and a water-repellent treatment make light work of difficult weather and four-way stretch means they won't get in your way when moving quickly on undulating terrain. Three zipped pockets and a removable elasticated belt finish them off nicely.
