These shorts may look like they're half-patterned and half-plain, but think again. Get 'em wet and you'll see a hidden design where there was none thanks to our "magic" HydroPrint designs. Another surprise is that they're made using polyester (PET) fabric that comes from recycled plastic bottles. This special material is lightweight and comfortable no matter how many dives or cannonballs you do thanks to the addition of spandex that gives 'em just the right amount of give. One more thing you can't see is the built-in UV protection that blocks many of the sun's harmful rays.
