Women's Water Shorts are a magical thing. They have lightweight and quick drying properties that can have a profound effect on adventures. Whether it is a day trip to the river or an extended trip into the backcountry, water shorts can make life much easier, even on a biological level! Think of introducing a damp pair of non-water shorts to the rest of the clothes in your pack... the dark and damp conditions are begging for mildew. The thought is off-putting. By utilizing water shorts, you can extend the life of your trip and the longevity of your gear.
