Camp Shorts / Olive Drab Ripstop
Battenwear Camp Shorts are ideal for summer trips camping, river rafting, canyoning, tropical spelunking, canoeing, kayaking, waterfall diving . . . you name it, and these shorts are up for the adventure. While we didn't design them a swim short per se (more as an in and out of water pair of shorts with pockets, etc), our customers have written to say they like them for swimming. Now we do too! Basically, they're a great pair of shorts to take on a vacation and to count on being ready for anything.
Fabric Notes: For SS23, we are using one of our favorite fabrics, a ripstop cotton. Military fabric engineers developed ripstop fabrics during WWII, using double warp and weft threads woven into a crosshatch pattern which is resistant to tearing and ripping. This crosshatch construction makes the fabric feel heavier, but this particular ripstop is only 6.5 oz, making it lightweight while still durable.
