Whether it's a deluge from the sky or an upsurge at your feet, damp conditions are no match for the quick-drying AmphiTM Short. A Teflon finish means the gear you've stashed in the back zip pockets, side cargos, and other handy storage spots will stay dry. UPF 50 fabric keeps your thighs from baking, but you can also cinch the thigh cords when crossing a stream or for more breeze on the legs. And go ahead and run for the bus-the built-in belt customizes the fit, and the full inseam gusset won't stifle your sprint.
Protection is the Amphi Short's specialty. A built-in removable belt and Indestructible Button System are durable and keep them where you want them. UPF 30+ repels harmful rays. The Durable Water Repellent-treated nylon fabric dries faster to keep you comfortable and allows for easy washing. The full inseam gusset lets the Amphi move with you, and multiple security zip pockets keep items safe.
