Saba Recycled Seam-Free Boardshorts

Best of Category: Men’s Lifestyle Apparel

A pair of boardshorts that cares about the environment? You got that right. This is AFTCO’s first dive into recyclable material integrated within our technical fishing clothing. Saba recycled boardshorts are made out of sustainable 88% recycled polyester and 12% spandex fabric that is feather-light. In fact, these are the lightest boardshorts ever built by AFTCO. To accomplish this, AFTCO reduced the amount of seams and other unnecessary trims to deliver maximum comfort for a “Seam-Free” construction.

The only shorts you need to diffuse any situation. AFTCO checks yet another box off the innovation bucket list with the first pair of technical fishing shorts made entirely of our breathable yet durable Air-0 Mesh® material.
