Throwback to where it all began. In 1990 we introduced our very first product. The Waterproof padded sailing short, the first of it’s kind. Many copy cats followed over the years. Now in Conjunction with The Bitter End Yacht Club on the island of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, we bring you the collaboration of the finest sailing short in the world. Introducing the New RailRiders / Bitter End Pro-Am Sailing short, and event that RailRiders has sponsored for the last 15 years. Ripstop Nylon Shell with 500 denier Cordura reinforced seat and Pockets for high abrasion areas
I bought these shorts to wear while splitting rocks often while sitting on rocks so I wanted something tough especially in the seat and these are it. They are cooler than canvas and they look good from the front. Back not so much but that doesn't really concern me working in a pile of rocks. Lots of usable pockets and velcro adjustment side tabs which is really nice to adjust fit without needing a belt. Wish they came in more than just gray color. A brown or tan would be nice.

My husband loves these shorts. When they arrived the material seemed very stiff but after a washing or two they softened up. They are made so well that I think they'll last almost forever. They also seem like they would be great for sailing - sturdy quick drying and comfortable. My husband hasn't worn them out on the boat yet but I'm positive he will
