A packable, quick-drying short for your water-adjacent adventures. Our new crinkled nylon material is extremely versatile—sturdy when dry, yet it becomes extremely soft when wet for extra freedom of movement. As you charge through different terrain, the Drift Short will adapt with you.
Please Note: this garment is intended for freshwater usage. Saltwater submersion may impact garment features such as the zipper and button.

We are committed to the fair and equitable treatment of everyone along our supply chain. Our commitment to people and the planet guides us.

A regular fit throughout the shorts with a length that extends to above the kneecaps.
Fashion forward with outdoor versatility in mind; rugged when dry, soft when submerged. Our crinkled nylon has an almost three-dimensional depth to its texture yet is quick-drying and holds off stains with its DWR finish. It’s lightweight and street-tough with a bold style.
DWR (Durable Water Repellency) coating is the outermost finish applied to exclusive 686 fabrics increasing their contact angle and thus repelling water while maintaining high breathability. DWR also helps repel stains and oils that can damage your garment's surface.
