Mens Light and Variable Board Shorts - 18 in.
With an inseam-free design, the stripped-down, travel-savvy Light & Variable Board Shorts keep you free of chafe while you thread through barrels or trim down the line. Something like Speedos but without all the bright-white upper thigh, their light weight and functional simplicity make them a longtime Patagonia favorite. Now made from superlight, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester with 2-way mechanical stretch, a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 50+ UPF sun protection, the hydrodynamic design has a trim silhouette and sleek low-drag waistband. Other features include a flat-lying fly with ladderlock drawstring closure, and a pared-down back pocket that's self-draining, has an internal key loop and doubles as a compact stuff pouch. The pocket has a corrosion-proof plastic zipper, and the side seams have small notches for increased freedom of motion. Outseam is 18". Fair Trade Certified sewing.
