I am looking for some water shorts that are quick drying, heavy duty, abrasion resistant, but without a built in belt. I saw the TAD shorts in another thread but they appear discountinued. What have you seen?
Thanks, I'll watch for them. Do you guys know if the Exoficio Amphi shorts can use a regular belt? I like those too.Al,
We actually just got the Granite Creek shorts in stock! I'll be adding them to the site this week. We also carry the ExOfficio Nomad Shorts. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions (or check out the ExpeditionApparel link in my signature for my phone number).
I found these on their site that mostly fit what I'm looking for. Real belt loops are a "must have" deal breaker. I'm not swimming any more class II-III rapids with my shorts around my anklesNot sure what your budget is but I recently aquired a pair of Pelagic shorts. www.pelagicgear.com. Not affiliated but being in and out of the water they are great. belt loops, front pockets and cargo pockets on the side for wallet and cell phone for when you are on your way to the water. Will hold a fly box if you are wet wading. Waist seems true to size. Length is about what a board short would be. I am too old and fat for the tennis short cut/fit of patagonia baggies of my youth.
