An admirable rethink of the sailing short. No more saggy pockets down by the knee, these are tapered for a less bulky fit and are aimed at sailors who spend long hours afloat or who prefer wearing shorts from spring to autumn. Comfort comes via a four-way stretch, with extra give in the thighs, plus industrial-level abrasion resistance on the bottom, and a raised cut for back protection. The material is water-repellant and protects against UV rays.
