Although durable, good-looking, comfortable and functional, Atlantis Weathergear’s Shipyard shorts have always had a serious flaw: they were only available in men’s sizes! Fortunately, the company has since made good and begun marketing the same quick-drying pants, which come complete with a zippered pocket and integrated multi-tool sheath, in women’s sizes as well. A word of warning, though, ladies: once you’ve done a race or two with these things on you’re not going to want to go sailing with anything else!
