“River Shorts have become standard fare for river guides, surf bums and water rats around the world (where currency is unstable, you can trade them for food). The durable, quick-drying 3-ply Supplex® nylon shrugs off abuse from the most turbulent rivers, rockiest put-ins and abrasive deck grips. The liner is a comfortable PCR (post-consumer recycled) polyester mesh brief. Velcro®-closing pockets are positioned horizontally to avoid snagging on oars. This year, we've made River Shorts one inch longer (5" inseam), and one inch fuller in the legs; the back rise is long for sitting comfort and the webbing belt and waistband (now with improved elastic) keeps your shorts secure in a swim. High-stress seams are triple-needle stitched. Mesh strips in pockets drain water and sand. Imported” (Patagonia, Spring 1998).

Please note that items for sale are vintage/pre-owned in nature, with most being previously worn.
