These are the Camet Nantucket Sailing Shorts. They're made of a SUPPLEX nylon, which is nice, lightweight, fast-drying, breathable, and has a cotton-like feel, so they're very comfortable against the skin. Working from the top down, this has belt loops all the way around, and if you're not wearing a belt and need adjustability, Camet has this adjuster right here on the side. You just open this Velcro tab, pull in as much material as you need, and it lays flat and doesn't come undone. Simple, but very effective.

In the front, it has a nice, large button that won't pop open when you're straining, and then, it's a zipper fly right here. The pockets on these are nice and deep, so you can get lots of stuff in them, and on either side. And then, we've got a cargo pocket on the side with double Velcro. On the back, heavily reinforced Cordura seat, and these are padded, optional. You can buy these optional pads. They come in a pair, left and right. Take the shorts off, open this envelope, slide them in on either side, close this up and you've got padded sailing shorts. These are the Camet Nantucket sailing shorts.

Aaron from Sales  and Customer Service takes a look at one of his favorite technical shorts, the Nantucket Camet Shorts.

Nantucket Camet Shorts

These shorts are great for racers and non-racers alike. They’re made from fast drying, lightweight nylon with DWR coated material for maximum comfort and the protection of a UV40+ rating. The Cordura reinforced seat will let the Nantucket stand up to even the most aggressive nonskid or years of hiking on smaller boats.

With a plain front and cargo pocket, they distinguish themselves from our most popular Camet Shorts, the Camet 3000 Sailing Shorts.

Nantucket Camet Shorts

A big durable button stays buttoned and can be undone with gloved hands – something that many other sailing shorts can’t say!  With additional pocket for seat pads, they're ready for long days on the water.  They have a Velcro cinch on the side that lays flat – a nice feature for added flexibility in fit, but beware of the sizing as they do run large.

At a 36” waist, I’m a medium (which I can’t complain about!).  Make sure you check the sizing chart for to find the right fit. The shorts are very versatile and the only thing that makes them a true sailing short and not as much of a lifestyle short is the lack of back pocket. So you might want to change out of these workhorse shorts when going out after racing, unless of course, you’re not the one paying!

Overall, the Nantucket Camet Shortsare a lightweight, comfortable and functional pair of shorts.  And since it's almost the 4th of July, another great feature of note is these shorts are made in the good ol' USA.
