The advantages of swim shorts
Swim shorts have become the preferred swimwear of many men in recent years, and we know why! They offer the best of both worlds: they're made from state-of-the-art swimwear fabric, which features a fun mix of colours and prints, and they're perfect for wearing to the beach and the pool. All of our swim shorts have an inner lining for added comfort and either a slit pocket, a zip pocket, or a Velcro pocket – perfect for your cash or your keys! Just make sure you empty the pocket before you hit the water... All of the swim shorts in our collection feature an elastic lanyard for your keys, which significantly reduces the risk of losing them.
To prevent your swim shorts from sagging off during a game of beach volleyball or beach football, all of our swim shorts feature a sturdy waistband. There are two types of waistbands: semi-elasticated and fully elasticated. Our semi-elasticated styles only have elastic on the back of the waistband, and our fully elasticated styles have elastic throughout the waistband. The only difference between the two is how they look; a semi-elasticated waistband is no more likely to sag than a fully elasticated one, and vice versa. All of our styles come with a drawstring that can be used to tighten or loosen the shorts, as desired.
Short or long swim shorts?
Protest swim shorts come in three standard lengths: 16 inches, 19 inches, and 21 inches. The 16-inch swim shorts are the shortest in our collection and fall mid-thigh, making them perfect for beach sports such as volleyball. The 19-inch swim shorts are our average length. They fall just above the knee and offer excellent range of motion. Our 21-inch swim shorts are our longest style. They fall to the knee and are aptly referred to as 'shorts'. The 21-inch shorts are the perfect length for surfing, as they protect your knees better than the other two styles.
Swim shorts in different colours
We add new colours to our men's swimwear collection each season to create a vibrant collection of swim shorts to choose from. Our swim shorts come in all colours of the rainbow, although our black shorts are a popular style that is available each season in different styles. Colourblock swim shorts are also a popular choice.
Swim shorts with different prints
In addition to a wide selection of colours, our swim shorts also come in a variety of prints, the most popular being the floral/leaf print available in each collection. Microprints have also been gaining in popularity over the years. The term says it all: a microprint is a tiny printed image, such as a palm tree or a person. Microprints add a fun and unique twist to your everyday swim shorts.
Our men's swim shorts are available in a variety of sizes, from small to large. After all, size should never stop anyone from enjoying a day at the beach or the pool. For this reason, many of the swim shorts in our summer 2020 collection are available in a new size: XXXL. This means you can now shop for stylish swim shorts in sizes XS to XXXL!
GeoGreen swim shorts
The waves and the mountains are our playground, and it's our responsibility to take care of our incredible planet. For this reason, Protest strives to be as environmentally friendly in its processes. An excellent example of this is our GeoGreen swim short line. Several of our swim shorts are made from recycled PET bottles, which is our way of helping to reduce plastic pollution. Recycling polyester is one way to address the plastic pollution and waste issue; developing innovative new fabrics is another. This is why we are increasingly using a sustainable bamboo blend to make our swim shorts. The biggest advantage of bamboo is that it's incredibly fast-growing, which means it can be harvested several times a year. It also requires a third of the amount of water that cotton plants need and has no natural enemies. As a result, bamboo can be grown with little to no pesticides or herbicides required.
