PranaMetric E-Waist Boardshort - Men's

It's summer somewhere.

Summer never lasts quite as long as you'd like. But with Prana's Metric E-Waist Shorts, you'll have no trouble taking advantage of the season while it lasts. A DWR finish wicks moisture and dries quickly as you navigate from surf sessions to beach hangs, and a UPF 50 rating gives you all-day protection from the sun. The shorts are also performance-woven from organic and recycled materials.
