The Arcteryx Aptin Short is a super lightweight unlined, stretch short ideal for running, climbing or biking. Constructed from a super lightweight Fortius DW nylon, with a four-way stretch it provides you with total freedom of movement. The fabric is also DWR treated, reducing the fabric retaining any moisture and being quick drying.
The waistband is minimally elasticated and has an easy to adjust drawcord while laminated hems save weight and help to prevent chafing. There's also an invisible zipped security pocket for keeping small items safe, and reflective blades making you visible when out in low light. They also feature two hand pockets, the right one hides an internal media pocket with a cord port to locate your head phones through. The shorts are regular fitting and cut with a slightly longer length providing you with a bit more leg coverage.

Customer Reviews of Arcteryx Aptin Short
To be honest I wasn't comfortable spending this amount on a pair of shorts but I thought it was worth a shot as I struggle to find a short I like the fit of (prefer longer inseam). These fitted the bill. They ooze quality and are a pleasure to wear. Not too baggy and not too short. I use them for running, biking, climbing and just everyday stuff. They have some water repellency which I think is a bonus. Welded seams which look and feel great. They are not your average pair of shorts. I am 6'2" and 85kg. I am usually around a 32" waist and a Medium fits me well. They finish just above my knees when standing. Fast postage. Can't complain.
