Prana Hydra Short - Women's

Tame the wild waves.

Surf can be a many-headed beast, but Prana's Hydra Women's Short is capable of taming the most unpredictable conditions. Prana cut it from Hyperstretch neoprene to provide killer stretch, awesome comfort, and protection from the elements, and finished the panels with flatlock stitching to prevent chafing. An inseam gusset lets you move comfortably, and a zippered back pocket comes with a key loop so you don't lose your keys to Davy Jones' locker.

Quality Performance Bottoms

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I have been wearing these to train for my first triathlon (probably not the typical use) and I LOVE them. Comfortable fit, actually pretty cute, and probably what I'll wear during the race. These are certainly not a casual bottom, but are a quality performance short and would be great for surfing, or open water swimming of any type. They fit true to size -- snug as a glove, just the way I wanted!

High quality, great fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XS

These fit great and are very good quality. I didn't pay much attention when I bought these and bought these thinking they were regular swim trunks. They are in fact made of neoprene and would not be good for casual swimwear.

Are these shorts waterproof , will they keep me dry in a hotub?

Hello Lance,



No these shorts are not waterproof. they are made from Neoprene and great for water usage, but you will definitely get wet.
