Summer is in full swing and, for many, that will mean heading to the beach over the next few months. If you plan on heading into the water and, in particular, surfing, paddle boarding or taking part in any other watersports, a good pair of board shorts is a must and, truth be told, they won’t come much better looking or well made than these brilliant The Anaga Board Shorts from the guys at Mission Workshop.
The Anaga Board Shorts from Mission Workshop are a 19” pair of board shorts which make use of the most advanced materials and manufacturing techniques available on the market right now and this makes them excel in the comfort and performance departments. Costing $180, something which puts them in the upper echelons of pricing so far as shorts are concerned, you’ll understand why when you see they are crafted from a lightweight, 4-way-stretch fabric which is hydrophobic, dries quickly and is fully seam taped for comfort in and out of the water.
One of the best things about the products from Mission Workshop is their “Guaranteed Forever” policy which means that if any product fails as a result of defects in materials or workmanship, they’ll repair or replace them with a like item free of charge and cover the shipping back to you and this is something which applies to The Anaga Board Shorts as well. These brilliant looking, adventure ready shorts aim to be the most advanced and functional board short possible and, from what we’ve seen, it might just be mission (workshop) accomplished.
The Mission Workshop The Anaga Board Shorts are stealthy aesthetically and the material sourcing and garment production of these shorts comes from Europe. A year in the making, which consisted of many tests to ensure the materials used were just right, the Anaga Board Shorts ultimately went with a 150gsm 4-way-stretch woven textile from one of the brand’s favorite Italian mills, Mectex M.I.S.
This fabric is extremely lightweight, flexible and very robust so the Mission Workshop The Anaga Board Shorts will be ready for whatever water based adventures you’ve got in store over the next few months. Incredibly fast drying, the material is treated with an extra durable water repellent, which means it is efficient at shedding water and will be ready to hit land even more quickly when you’ve finished up on the surfboard or paddle board.
The Anaga Board Shorts from Mission Workshop are crafted by skilled workers in Portugal at one of the most advanced technical garment factories in the world. By choosing to make the shorts at this factory they could incorporate a laser-cut paneled construction and taped seams to do away with the issue of chafing whilst also maintaining maximum flex and durability. In addition, bonded seams, taped hems and a sculpted waistband all join together to deliver a board short just as capable both in and out of the water.
For those of you in need of some adventure ready, exceptionally well made board shorts for the summer months ahead, look no further than The Anaga from Mission Workshop. They might be quite pricy at $180 but you get what you pay for in the quality, performance and comfort departments so if you’re prepared to push the boat out a little, these would definitely be one of our top picks here at Coolector HQ.
