    Snorkeling to stand-up paddle sessions.

    Maybe you're snorkeling through Belize's barrier reefs or SUPing along the Lake Tahoe shoreline. Either way, the Outdoor Research Men's Backcountry Board Shorts have you covered. These polyester board shorts are lightweight, breathable, and quick drying for all-day wear—both in and out of the water. Ultra-durable for the long journey ahead, these board shorts are ideal for long-distance thru hikers, backpackers, and minimalist adventurers who need one pair of shorts for swimming, water sports, and hiking. Their UPF 50 + rating ensures you don't burn under intense sun, and a zippered thigh pocket secures valuables and everyday items on the trail.

    Feels great!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    Awesome pair of swimming shorts, I wouldn't use it for anything else. One pocket but hey, it is a board short. OR did it again! feels great and packs super small for river trips. Has some belt loops as well but no belt, the belt loops are very small so not sure what belt I would use with this, although I did not need a belt. Fits true to size. A tad loose but I have a 33" waist and it was either the 32" or the 34" and opted for the 34". I made a great choice with that. 9.5" inseam puts it right above my knee cap. Love the feel and fit, feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
