Full of surprises.
It's surprising that the Men's Horizon II Cargo Shorts remain The North Face's lightest pair of hiking shorts because they're jam-packed with features. Qualities like the hydrophobic QuickDry treatment for speedy moisture management and the DWR coating for optimal water-resistance are what set this hiking short apart from most. What's really amazing is that the Horizon sports a relaxed fit, a wide thigh, and a gusseted crotch for more mobility while still maintaining an ultralight weight of seven ounces. The Horizon owes its featherlight weight to the thin, woven nylon ripstop that remains durable and strong enough to provide a UPF of 50.
