A soft-knit short to wear over a suit is an essential for alpine lake swimming season and our Hylas serves that purpose perfectly. Designed for a flattering fit—dry or wet—it is made with Helion™ stretch nylon knit fabric that blocks sun at a UPF 50+ rating. The low-maintenance wide elastic waistband adjusts easily while a three-inch inseam hangs loose. Flat and flattering in back, this is the short to pack for summers at home or long days on the SUP.

Breathable and quick-drying Helion™ fabric protects against high-altitude rays with UPF 50+ rating. Constructed with 90% nylon, 10% elastane, Helion™ offers lightweight, 4-way stretch ideal for activities on and off the water.
