Your typical board short might dry quickly, but the Men's Thrive SUP Short dries with lightening speed and it boasts supreme comfort thanks to highly breathable Thrive fabric—top that, surf companies. Need another reason to ditch your simple, plastic-bag-like boardies? Stoic engineers outfitted this short with fully-welded construction to eliminate chafe-inducing seam bulges, and this short has a tapered fit that plays nice with the stance required for stand-up paddleboarding or surfing.

  • Breathable and dynamic Thrive stretch-weave material vents body heat and wicks sweat away from your body while you paddle
  • Thrive material dries quickly once you're out of the water
  • 3-D Ergonomic fit tapers from the waist to hips and uses a slightly looser fit towards the knees so this short can move as you move
  • Welded construction eliminates annoying seam bulk and reduces the opportunities for uncomfortable chafing in or out of the water
  • Thigh zip pocket gives you a quick and easy place to store your car keys or a small snack

Best short ever.

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

Lightweight, tough, quick drying, soft and stretchy...need I say more? 3 pockets and one is zippered with a drain and they have waist cinches! Wore them all day everyday in the Hawaiian islands for a month. Please Backcountry, don't discontinue this
Model!!!!!!!! I want more!!!

Great cool short

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This is my 3rd one I am getting. Light thin silky feel make it an ideal short to wear in tropical heat region. Suitable to carry for travel since it is light weight and don burst your luggage limit.

Took these on a climbing trip to Brazil, and they're basically the only shorts I wore the whole time on the beach!
Super breathable, and didn't stick to my legs once while climbing.

good stuffs

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

these are super lightweight, quick drying, comfortable shorts. Copped the smalls in the light blue and brownish red for cheap and I wasn't disappointed. The welded seams are great, same great quality that has always come from stoic. I just hope they bring this short back once stoic transitions to the backcountry brand. I will buy some more. I got the small size and wear a 29-30 waist. The length is long but not too long.

Great Shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

These are amazing shorts, no stitching on the seams. Everything is welded together pockets and all. The material is super fast drying and stretchy. I did find that they ran small. I'm a 33" waist and found the Medium to be too tight, the Large worked perfectly. Snag these shorts, you won't regret it.

Fits smaller than the Thrive

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Have a pair of the Thrive shorts and love them. These Thrive SUP shorts are the same awesome material but they are significantly smaller. While the size M in the Thrive fits perfectly if a bit loose, these SUP shorts are uncomfortably and immodestly tight. Bummer. I'm 6", 180lbs, 32 to 33in waist.

Super comfortable

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

A lot of my friends have these shorts and absolutely love them. I own some of the Stoic womens shorts but always liked these a lot so I decided I would try them out. I am a 5'3 125 woman and got the mens smalls in these shorts. While they are really long on me the waist fits well. I have ended up rolling them once so they fit better in length but I think I may get them hemmed so they fit my little legs. All in all they are super comfortable, light weight and breathable shorts. I just wish Stoic made something similar for women!

Awesome Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've bought a few of these. They are some of the most comfortable shorts you can get for an active lifestyle. I use these for everything from Mountain biking to Rock Climbing and they hold up great. The fabric stretches enough to allow you to move the way you need to when you're active. Would highly recommend these to everyone!

Love these shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great quick drying lightweight shorts. Only complaint is pockets don't hold much. There are two front and one cargo, no rear. Still i own a pair in each color and they are great.

Great boating/hiking short

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Extremely comfortable. Super light and stretchy. Great for any activity from hiking to running to kayaking. For just casual wear I prefer something a bit longer, but these are still great. They are comfortable when wet and dry incredibly fast. The best all-around high activity short I own. I think the pockets are great - not so deep to have stuff bouncing around when running - but plenty deep for wallet, a few jells, keys, etc. I think they run slightly small as a medium fits me (32/33 waist) just right. The two straps used to adjust waist are a bit funky but work fine.

Still Deciding...

I bought these shorts to travel. I have "tested" them once so far. I have two issues with them: 1) there are lines on the shorts that aren't part of the design. It appears as though some glue is used in the construction of these shorts. On my pair, you can see lines of glue where they glued the fabric together. 2) the shorts didn't dry lighting fast like advertised. I didn't lay them flat in the sun but I did spread them out over a surface in the bathroom and they didn't seem to dry much faster than standard swimwear. I wasn't timing it, though...I'll update as I use them more.

Nice shorts, but thigh pocket came off

I really like these shorts and ended up buying 2 pairs. The material is light and stretchy, great for rock climbing. But, the thigh pocket started to peel off after about 6 months of use. It's just a piece of fabric that's glued on to the outside of the shorts. Other than that quality control issue, they are great.

very nice shorts

I really like these shorts. The stretchy material is great for climbing, exercising, or just lazing around the house. These are incredibly light, but they feel strong as well. I haven't used them for water sports as other reviews have mentioned, but I'm sure they will work great.

The pockets are a bit shallow, but there is a zip pocket on the rip leg which works great for holding money, keys, crack, etc.

For sizing- I wear a 33-34 in jeans, have big skier quads, a bit of a beer gut, and a size Large works great with these shorts.

I have used these swimming,cycling, yoga and casual and find them really comfortable.

Great shorts for active lifestyles

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Nice fabric - stretchy and breathable. I actually like the short front pockets, as it lets me run with my phone and it doesn't flop around.These are probably not the toughest shorts for crawling through briars, etc., but they're super comfortable, versatile, and handsome.

Stoic Thrive SUP Short - Men's

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought both colors and love the how they fit, look, and especially the positive comments I get on them. Guys and gals asking where I got them. I wish there were more color choices. I am so glad I bought both colors when I bought them. No regrets. Dry super fast!

Awesome

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Use them for a swim suit. A little thin so wear under armor shorts underneath if you know what I mean. Very flexible. Use them as an alternative to gym shorts.

Bad fit, Useless pockets

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The positives: very lightweight and the material is really stretchy. Would probably work really well for water sports and rock climbing.

The negatives: these just didn't fit me at all. I'm a 32/33 waist and the large was too loose and medium was too tight. They're also longer than pretty much all other shorts. The pockets are absolutely useless. They're way too shallow to be any good and are placed right in the front, not the side so you would have your belongings rubbing against your front upper thigh all day on hikes. Also, the leg openings are really wide. Someone else mentioned they could fit both legs in them. I tried it and I could too.

A few minor changes and these shorts would be awesome, but I'll be returning them.

Lightweight Shorts

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love these shorts. They are very lightweight and extremely comfortable. They are incredibly stretchy, great for climbing. I have the original Thrive's as well and it is nice to have the extra pocket on the Thrive SUP shorts.
