      Comments about Quick-dry Adventure Water Shorts:

      I used this product after only one wash. I found the inner mesh abrasive and the outer fabric not very soft. I am washing the shorts every week until an Africa trip in Spring 2014. I am hoping the fabric relaxes and becomes softer. This was my major issue with these shorts. Otherwise, they dry quickly, are difficult to wrinkle, have great pockets.

          My only difficulty with the shorts is that it has no front slit or zipper which makes it difficult when nature calls. And as I use it exclusively for sports and thus for nature's calls outside, it makes quick and easy relief difficult

          These shorts were enormous. Even going down a size would not help because of their very boxy fit. Not flattering at all.

              This rugged inflatable boat turns ordinary excursions on lakes, ponds, or calm seas into educational water explorations you'll never forget.

              A saltwater-resistant, 300,000-candlepower submersible light lures water creatures near so you can see them through the boat's clear-vinyl floor window.

              When deflated, it packs compactly for travel.

              We recommend using a personal flotation device while boating.

              It’s hard to relax and enjoy the view when you’re constantly swatting at bugs, but the most effective chemical insect repellents are often the least eco-friendly. Not only are bug bites annoying, they also carry the risk of Lyme disease, West Nile virus, and malaria. A breathable mesh bug shirt is just the answer for keeping bugs off of your skin altogether.
