There’s one thing every waterman has in common, and that’s the need for a great pair of board shorts!  Patagonia’s MOC Hybrid Shorts are built for the ocean obsessed.

The Stuff of Legends

Patagonia’s MOC Hybrid Shorts are made to be light, durable, and quick-drying. They consist mostly of a light nylon solution, fortified by a spandex fabric with a durable water repellent finish. Their UPF-rated board shorts use yarn mixed with titanium dioxide. These additives are permanently locked into the yarn, providing long lasting, durable protection. This simple and effective design utilizes the best materials in swimwear design to deliver a durable pair of all purpose boardshorts.

Pockets for Every Adventure

Patagonia understands the need for versatility, which is why each pair of MOC Hybrid Shorts comes built with extra pockets for travel and fishing. The front slash pockets provide easy access to personal items, and are ideal for casual outings. MOC’s right-leg pocket is fly box compatible, freeing up an extra hand while fishing. The right leg pocket also contains a key loop, giving ocean goers the ability to securely fasten keys to their person. With this reliable key string, watermen can paddle out worry free, without having to stash their keys in a tailpipe or behind a hub cap. The MOC’s back pockets feature securable flaps, for added protection.

You can sleep easy, knowing that when your adventures land you in Bali on that once in a lifetime surf trip, you’ll have no worries on any disappearing wallets or passports.

Surf or Turf in Style!

The MOC Hybrid Shorts combines the functionality of boardshorts with the look and style of your everyday shorts. MOC closely resembles street clothes, allowing for seamless transitions from the surf to the beach side bar. The three-piece, self-lined waistband features belt loops contours, compatible with your favorite leather accessory.

MOC’s durable bartacked drawstring and ladderlock drawstring closure allows for simple waistband adjustments. As you grow, the shorts can follow! That’s some practical innovation that all of us at Vanish can’t get enough of!

No More Scabbed Gonads!

Let’s not forget a vital concern for every waterman: the way a pair of boardshorts handles the goods. Low quality boardshorts are infamous for the rashes and chafing that can result from a single ocean outing. It’s uncomfortable, and can result in days out of the water. The fine folks at Patagonia have taken this into consideration. MOC Hybrid Shorts feature a gusseted crotch so beach goers can move comfortably in the sand and the surf, without having to worry over the family jewels.

Save the Ocean with Enlightened Consumerism!

A moral quandary that nearly every waterman grapples with is the need for more, better equipment, and the environmental impact of unabated consumerism. Patagonia is dedicated to maintaining the integrity of our natural world, which is why they build high quality products made to last. MOC Hybrid Shorts are made primarily from sixty-five percent recycled nylon, and a durable spandex fabric. By using recycled Nylon, Patagonia helps lessen our dependence on petroleum as a material source.

Wear and Tear? No Worries!

Planned obsolescence is a shady, unsustainable business practice. Patagonia products are backed by an ironclad guarantee, and the company is willing to repair most products for free!

Better Brands Do More Good

Let’s not forget that Patagonia is also leader in the global fight for sustainable business solutions. They work hand in hand with bluesign® technologies, to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in their materials supply chain. Patagonia’s self-imposed Earth tax, “1% for the Planet”, provides support to environmental initiatives across the globe.
