Providing exceptional moisture management and comfort, these boy short–style underwear are made of our superwicking 93% nylon (70% recycled)/7% spandex jersey Active Mesh fabric with Polygiene® permanent odor control.
Our Active Mesh Boy Shorts are game for creekside sun salutations or lunch dates atop Mt. Jumbo, all the while providing stalwart performance and comfort.
They’re made with soft, breathable recycled nylon blended with spandex and have a moisture-wicking finish. These boy shorts have a low-rise; a short, flat waistband that won't roll or bind; and stretchy, shaped leg openings for a no-bunch fit. Seamless construction eliminates chafing.
Pairs well with our Active Mesh Bra.
Although we’ve been using recycled polyester in our garments for 20 years, for some reason locked deep in polymer chemistry, nylon is more difficult to recycle than polyester. After years of research, development, and testing, we’re finally finding some recycled nylon fibers that are suitable for apparel.
Some of the recycled nylon we use comes from post-industrial waste fiber, yarn collected from a spinning factory, and waste from the weaving mills that can be processed into reusable nylon fiber.
We’re diligently searching for a success story with recycled nylon. The challenge lies ahead of us, and we’re committed to discovering the best methods to recycle nylon fiber, but it appears this evolution will take many years.
Polygiene® odor control permanently protects your garments from smelling like a middle school locker room. Sweat itself is odorless, but it creates the conditions that bacteria need to multiply, and some of those bacteria produce odors. Polygiene permanent odor control stops the growth of odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, so you can wear more and wash less.
Active only on the fabric surface, Polygiene permanent odor control does not interfere with perspiration or with the skin’s natural bacterial flora. Polygiene particles are more than 100 times larger than nanoparticles and therefore are too large to penetrate to the skin’s barrier. Polygiene-treated fabrics have received Medical Class 1 approval in Europe, the same class that includes bandages.
