Technical sailing shorts and pants are built for performance, comfort and protection. Whether you're cruising or racing, these shorts and pants designed for sailing are key items to have in warmer weather. Technical bottoms come in waterproof, water resistant and quick drying fabrics in men's or women’s styles. Styles are articulated to accommodate a range of movement. Seats are generally double reinforced with abrasion resistant fabrics to hold up to sitting on nonskid decks. Padded sailing shorts have a rear pocket for an optional seat pad(s) that can be inserted as needed for all day sitting comfort. All tech pants and shorts offer sun protection, and some are made with UV rated fabrics.
