Introduction

PREORDER LIMITED
Even Thinner and Lighter, 5-Pocket Shorts

The Light 5-Pocket Shorts are the lightest of our shorts, with shorter length for ease of movement, great for runs or fast packing, and a waist adjuster that uses a flat string rather than a draw belt to keep the waist area neat.

However, we have received frequent requests for the Light 5-Pocket Shorts to have longer length, from those who want lightweight shorts but feel uncomfortable with the shorter length, so we decided to make a longer version of the Light 5-Pocket Pants, the 5-Pocket Pants Light available through preorder.

The 5-Pocket Shorts Light carries the same design as the Light 5-Pocket Shorts, using the thin and lightweight Pertex Equilibrium fabric, but with a slightly longer pants length. It also uses the same waist adjuster as the original 5-Pocket Shorts.

Preorders are currently closed. The next order and production period is undecided.

Form and Function

Pockets for Smartphone and Maps

Yamatomichi 5-Pocket design can neatly store your map, snack, wallet, and other items you need during hiking, without interfering with your leg movement.

Especially, our smartphone pocket at the side is so well-positioned that it fits your phone while keeping it securely in place without bouncing around when running. The map pocket is large enough to store a water bottle.

Ultra Light. Ultra Flexible.

By using the Pertex Equilibrium fabric, we managed to create a pair of pants weighing only half of our regular 5-Pocket Shorts. The Equilibrium is also slightly elastic allowing for great flexibility when hiking.

The twist-processing of the fibers and optimum weaving design create a slight two-way stretch even without the polyurethane material, which is elastic but easy to deteriorate with age.

The Pertex Equilibrium comprises 20 denier threads on the surface and 40 denier weft threads on the backside for more flexibility and lightness; a combination of the fibers with different deniers creates a unique irregular texture to keep your skin dry.

Super Fast-drying

As the fabric is super thin it dries in no time! The elastic waistband uses mesh material for quicker dry and better comfort when it gets wet from sweat or rain.

The chart below shows the moisture content in the fabric after 15 minutes of spin-dry. It compares our 5-Pocket Shorts Light with the base layers of major manufacturers, as well as a standard cotton shirt.

The lower the moisture content, the faster it dries. The 5-Pocket Shorts Light show that it is only 0.3% of water content after 15 minutes of spin-dry, which means it is almost completely dry.

5-Pocket Lineup

Yamatomichi offers three types of bottoms for the three seasons of spring, summer, and autumn: the standard 5-Pocket Pants/Shorts, the origin of the series; the Light 5-Pocket Pants/Shorts, that are super light and offers exceptional breathability; and the DW 5-Pocket Pants/Shorts, which are somewhat in the middle between the two.

Each has its own advantages and disadvantages depending on the situation, season, and application, but all of the designs are similar. Please visit the following link for details.

Material

Pertex Equilibrium

Pertex Equilibrium uses a unique double weave construction for lightweight and comfort. Our Light 5-Pocket Shorts and Pants uses a lightweight Pertex Equilibrium, weighing only 55 grams per square meter, achieving a significant weight saving (About half the weight of our conventional Pants and Shorts.

Though the material is paper-thin, it comprises 20 denier threads on the surface and 40 denier weft threads on the backside, making it more robust than most other textiles with a similar thickness. The combination of the fibers with different deniers creates a unique irregular texture, to keep your skin dry.

The twist-processing of the fibers and optimum weaving design create the slight two-way stretch even though it is a non-polyurethane material.

The material is a blended fabric made of nylon and polyester, creating a unique heather pattern on the surface.

Please Note

Relatively Weak

The Pertex Equilibrium, the fabric used in the Light 5-Pocket Shorts/Pants, is very thin and lightweight.

The rip-stop construction provides some strength, but sharp objects such as rocks and branches can scratch and possibly tear the fabric. Please be careful when you walk through rocky ridges or sit down to rest on a rock.
