These SHARKSKIN SHORT PANTS use a Chillproof and 4-way stretch neoprene hybrid design to provide maximum warmth, maximum fit, and maximum mobility when in and on the water. The Chillproof material in the legs and crotch provides wind and thermal protection. The neoprene in the seating area provides more comfort for extended periods of sitting and more stretch for a better fit. The high rear waist provides exceptional comfort and warmth when in a seated position.
Great short pants for all paddle water sports, power watersports including jetski, board watersports, and inshore and ocean sailing.
