Why We Like The Sandy River Cargo Short

We had no idea our family river rafting trips were missing something until we discovered the Sandy River Cargo Short. Extra sun protection is a good thing, and this short packs it on with UPF 30 for all-day paddling without the burnt thighs. The material is quick-drying, which is a bonus when we're sweating or our pup shakes out after splashing around.

Where have these been all my life?

I love these shorts. With a 6 inch inseam I have enough room to paddleboard and be active without feeling any constriction. The zippered pocket keeps my valuables safe and they are so flattering. The color is so perfect for the water. Glad I bought them.You should too!

All around great!

Love these shorts! I can put my license/credit card in the little zipper pocket and go. They are light fabric and wash well. The material does not fade or shrink. Great for hiking or just daily wear. I originally bought the black years ago and so glad i found this color too!

I have these shorts in every color.

I have been wearing the sandy river cargo shorts for years. I am so glad you brought back the bright colors. I love the red color you used to have. I do sea turtle monitoring from March till October and these are my go-to shorts for out on the beach. This purple color is awesome!!

Best shorts ever!

These are my go-to shorts. I wish I had discovered these sooner. I bought my first pair last year so this year I stocked up as much as I could! I will always buy these and have extra pairs on hand in various colors.

I have many pairs

The 5 inch inseam is great, and these shorts have a generous cut. The one downside is my phone always falls out of my pocket when I sit down.

womens sandy river shorts

Like these shorts. Of course!! I bought some 15 years ago and they are still holding up well but colors are fading slightly with time. I bought medium shorts years ago so I ordered mediums again. The sizes have changed thru the years. The new mediums were a bit smaller in thigh area and shorter waisted from crotch to waste band. I had to return them and order a large which I have never worn before. The large gives me more room in thighs and inseam, but now the waste is quite big. I will keep the newer ordered shorts but will have to cinch in the waist with the nice belts that come with. It will gape a bit at waist but I wear shirts out so this wont show. The quality seems good still on the newer short, just sizes, shape of short have changed a bit.
