RAB's Longitude Shorts are so light - yet are still tough with key features like front pockets, security pocket and rear zipped pocket.
RAB says: The Longitude Short is a very light-weight, quick drying short, in a Matrix SW stretch fabric, for general outdoor use in warm conditions. With a tough and durable flat fell inside the leg and back rise seams, the Longitude Shorts are ideal for long mountain walks and treks.
A YKK zipped rear pocket doubles as an integrated stuff sack, enabling the Longitude Shorts to be packed away quickly and easily, taking up minimal space in a pack.

RAB's Longitude Shorts are amazingly lightweight and yet there's no real sacrifice of features. The front pockets don't have zips (although the right hand one has a zipped double pocket) but there's a rear zipped pocket, belt loops and semi elasticated waistband.
You don't get a belt, which will push the weight up compared to other pants yet they still remain comfortably below the weight of other similarly spec'd offerings.
The material is thin (of course), but its tough, cool in summer and has a nice feel to it.
