Product Information
In hot, steamy weather, the last thing you want is hot, steamy shorts. Which is exactly why we created our Tropical Flats. These are the lightest, most comfortable tropical shorts we've ever made. A cool, airy 3-oz nylon/spandex blend dries quickly, floats over the skin and provides 30-UPF sun protection. For even greater ventilation, the unique pocket snap system holds the pocket bag open to catch cooling breezes. Mesh drainage ensures you won't carry half the ocean in your pockets when you get out of the water. The elastic waist has a drawcord for comfort. Ideal for all warm-weather fishing, hiking or camping. And because the shorts practically disappear when folded or rolled up, they're perfect for travel. Inseam is 11".
