Bombproof Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I wore these shorts diving, snorkeling, fishing, rafting, kayaking, and hiking. The shorts stood up to salt water, pool water, coral, sand, rocks, grass and dirt. They look brand new and feel even more comfortable than new. Despite the layers (which help protect against chaffing immensely but which take getting used to), the shorts dry super quick. My girlfriend comments about how good they fit. Buy these and jump into lava. The shorts will be fine. Four stars because they only have the one side pocket. Another pocket would be nice. Even a small one.
