looking for lightweight shorts without mesh liner on 05/10/2012 11:37:10 MDT Print View

I think I prefer my microwool boxer-breifs. Does anyone make a good, basic, light (preferably green, hiking style) short without mesh? I'm thinking something like my mountain bike shell shorts, but not so heavy or bulletproof.

if you find a pair of shorts you like, you can always just cut the mesh liner out. that's what I do.

I picked up a pair of a shorts almost exactly as you're describing, even in green, at my local thrift store. They were soccer shorts, complete with emblem. They weigh 3.9 oz. I think they were $3. I don't do liner (edit: lined) shorts either.

So thrift it up.

You might also find a lightweight pair of board-shorts, something with a shorter cut, they don't have liners.
