The Men's Guide Shorts from Immersion Research are specifically designed to be able to handle the rigors of everyday use in whitewater. The durable polyester ripstop dries quickly, since there's not much worse than feeling as if you're still floundering in the water, hours after you hit the last set of rapids. A hook-and-loop side cargo pocket allows you to keep essentials handy, and the drawcord waist make sure these won't be ripped off you, even if you get turned over.
IR Men's Guide Shorts - The classic Men's Guide Shorts by IR are the perfect choice for summer fun. Soft, durable polyester fabric can be worn on or off the water. The DWR finish helps repel water. A zip fly and lace-up waistband make getting the shorts on a breeze, yet hold them securely in place. Two self draining side pockets and a rear patch pocket give you places to stash cash or your ID. The shorts also have a grommet sewn into the back of the left leg making them easy to clip to your other gear or for hanging to dry. A relaxed fit, 10" inseam, and crotch gusset keep these shorts from binding when you move. The IR Men's Guide Shorts are made for working and playing on the river!
Whether you're a professional rafter or just heading out for your first kayaking trip this summer, the Guide Short from Immersion Research is a good bet for day-long comfort.
