Planet Earth Swim Shorts
Built from ultra-tough compression fabric they’re crazily stretchy and strong.
- Extreme four way stretch
- Ultra-soft Italian mesh lining
- Treated with plant-based water repellent technology
There are over 510 million square kilometres on the surface of Earth, and the Planet Earth Swim Shorts are designed to work in every single one of them. Whether you’re on a beach, a boat, a paddleboard, or a wave the size of a building, these are the most advanced shorts anywhere on the planet. Made from ultra-tough compression fabric they’re highly abrasion resistant against reefs and rocks but stretch like an elastic band. And with three streamlined zipped pockets, a feathersoft antibacterial lining and plant-based water repellent technology they’re not only the world’s best board shorts, but the most versatile shorts ever made – as high-performance on a mountain as they are in the mid-Atlantic.
As soft as a sweater and hard wearing as a jacket
You probably won’t have ever worn a pair of knitted board shorts before, but they represent the holy grail of sports gear – incredibly strong, stretchy, soft and lightweight all at the same time. By blending elastane with a super tough nylon yarn, we’ve created a unique knitted fabric. With millions of microscopic knitted loops, it manages to feel as soft and stretchy as your knitted socks and sweaters, while being as hardwearing and smooth to the touch as a mountain jacket.
Plant technology makes these shorts water repellent
For decades, brands have been using toxic fluorocarbons to make their clothing water repellent. But ocean spray simply rolls straight off these shorts without a chemical in sight. We’ve gone back to the Stone Age and used a plant-based technology that penetrates deep into the fibres and makes water simply slip off the surface. The same tech makes them fast drying out of the water, and when you want to hang them up to dry you’ll find a reinforced drying loop just above the waistband.
Elasticated and rope tied waist
The shorts are elasticated at the waist and fasten with a metal-tipped rope. The rope is woven through laser cut holes which have been welded for extra strength. The inside of the waistband is soft, highly elastic and high wicking.
Wear the softest material on earth next to your balls
Good design matters, even when you can’t see it. And it matters even more when it’s next to your balls. The shorts’ inner lining is made with one of the highest grade and lightest materials on earth – an Italian mesh fabric that’s so soft and comfortable we used to build entire pieces of gear out of it. It’s fast drying, breathable and treated with an antibacterial coating to keep the shorts fresher for longer.
