I work from home and in the summer I'm in shorts 99% of the time, so the ultralights would not be everyday pants. Do they work well in that role with the understanding that they're a bit more delicate?

It's not going to look pretty (How the pants drape or how they snag and catch all white flacks that exist and don't exist) but it does its job very well.

Have you had any durability issues with your UL pieces?

Can't decide on keeping my UL freeshell or not...

Posted this on outlier's reddit yesterday regarding pilling on the UL. Mine are a light colour so I they don't pick up lint. Pretty happy with them except for the pilling.

Those are the gray ultralights from last year, wore them 15 times at most. I was fatter and probably should have sized up, the thighs rubbing under stretch was probably the cause. I haven't seen anything similar in any of the other models but have read at least another guy reporting the same in sufu or styleforum. It's a pity because it makes me wary of the ultralight fabric and you are creating lots of great stuff using it.

Thanks for that. Is that "new slate" or a different shade of gray?

I don't have big thighs but I'm going to give the ULs some hard consideration before deciding whether or not to keep them. The pilling seems inevitable given enough wear, and stretch/friction seems to speed it up. I had to raise an eyebrow a bit to Tyler's comment about the Runweights pilling after 100 miles of running. Does not sound like they're up to the task of being "running shorts" but may work as shorts that you can occasionally run in.

It's a different shade that hasn't been released this year.  I just checked the receipt for the order and it's just called Ultralight_Pant-Gray-31  (ordered june 2013).

 

I think this is the one: http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/95/37/2f/95372ff49dfc49ec89e1d2b6f6aadf8f.jpg 

 

They also made the ultralight blazer in that color. Search in google for "outlier ultralight gray" and you'll find some pics mixed with the graytint and new slate.

I will post picture soon, but the inside of the pants is where its really messed up and the pilling around crotch to upper leg is actually starting to get a little scratchy. Applying lotion on thigh after shower fixes the problem but I'd rather just give away at the end of season. The search for the ultimate summer pants resumes..

Clothes are only as durable as the seams which hold the fabrics together.

 

What are your thoughts on this?

Received my Black Slim Dungarees yesterday. I'm on the fence with them. The fabric feels much lighter than expected, which is good and bad. They feel kind of cheap due to the weight, but being in Florida the lighter weight felt manageable when I was outside midday yesterday. I'm used to the 4 way stretch in my 60/30s which feel much more substantial overall. The fit is better than what I thought though - not too slim.
post #1318 of 1363
The 60/30 is fantastic (my favorite pair of pants) but they're just way too hot to wear in the southern summer. That makes me really appreciate the light weight of the slim dungaree. Really nice cut, too.

On a completely unrelated note, the new OGs that I ordered to try out are going back. Just can't get past that pocket flare.

The Slim Dungarees are growing on me. Worn for 3 days. They are definitely good in the heat. The insides softened up and they drape nicely. I think they might be one size too large though. They feel a little baggy/long in the top block but still narrow in the hips. I'll have to think about returning them for a smaller size.

I just got a pair of the Outlier SD and feel pretty much the same way as Velobran- perhaps I should have gone for a 31 instead of my usual 32. I haven't washed them yet, so not sure if that'll make a difference. They fit very well everywhere else (I'm 6'2" 165lbs) so I don't want to size down and mess up another area.

 

I have worn them for 2 straight days and they are very comfortable, close to a pair of TAD pants that are my favorites. Based on web reviews, a few more days of wear and perhaps a wash should help.
