If you long for the days when shorts were actually short, our new 8 Sandy Cays are for you. Just as tough, cool and light as the original, longer version, the 8-inchers stop above the knee for old-school style and comfort. The quick-drying 3.5-oz 100% nylon taslan fabric with 50+ UPF sun protection takes care of the weight or lack thereof and a double fabric layer on the high-wear leg-front zone ensures serious durability. Two mesh-drained slash pockets in the front, two pockets (one drop-in and one zipper) on the back and a bonus drop-in utility pocket on the right thigh provide ample storage. And if youre packing more gear than the comfy, elastic-back waistband can handle, the belt loops are aLightweightays there for backup. Inseam is 8 .
