The mark of well-designed gear, whether it’s a backpack, boots or warm-weather shorts, is that it goes unnoticed while in use. These Filson x Birdwell Swim Trunks are so comfortable, they seem to disappear when you’re wearing them, just like good gear should. Handcrafted in the USA with Birdwell’s proprietary SurfStretch™ and SurfNyl™ fabrics, they’re quick-drying, lightweight and roomy–ideal for the beach, a summer alpine hike or warm-weather fishing.
Birdwell has been building the best board shorts in the business since 1961, when Carrie Birdwell Mann transformed her Santa Ana, CA home into a sewing room and became one of the pioneers of clothing engineered for beach life. Sixty years later, Birdwell still runs their business with same principles that are foundational at Filson–manufacture purpose-built goods, craft them with the best materials and construction and stand behind them without fail.
The base fabric for these exceptional shorts is Birdwell’s SurfStretch™, a 90% spandex/10% nylon that provides unparalleled freedom of motion, dries quickly and is quite durable. The seat is reinforced with SurfNyl™, developed by Birdwell to mimic the strength of a spinnaker sail while being softer against the skin and much more flexible. Hand- cut and-sewn with double-needle stitching, they’re built for a lifetime of warm-weather adventure and action. To carry all the little necessities, the right leg sports a button-flapped cargo pocket, and each hand pocket hides small internal pocket. The fly and waistband secure with mil-spec buttons, and adjustment tabs in the waist prove the security of a belt–so go ahead and dive in with confidence.
