Pockets on pockets.

The Men's Flight Better Than Naked Long Haul Short is part of The North Face's Flight Series, a collection of clothes optimized for performance. In this short's instance, the compressive liner includes the support necessary for incredibly long runs. The North Face made it out of moisture managing FlashDry fibers to wick sweat and dry quickly, and it includes an anti-odor treatment for extra comfort. Fourteen pockets on this short maximize organizational convenience—good luck finding enough snacks to fill them up.
