309 Fit Board Short Review - Branden DeFilippo
Branden DeFilippo - "Alright guys here we have a pair of the 309 OG athletic fit board shorts made by CG Habitats. These are a pair of my personal favorites and a team favorite, they’re a four way stretch with quick dry. They have an above the knee length to them with a retro style feel. A little cut to the side.
These board shorts are extremely convenient because they have maneuverability that you need. You’re not worried about them tripping up or stashing on your knees when you’re trying to surf or do any water sport for that matter. These things are a 46% polyester with repreve and 8% elastic. So that repreve means that they were recycled so being a surfer, I should be conscious of the environment. You’re always wanting to give back and that’s what’s awesome about CG, is that they are aware of that and they’re always trying to be on top of innovation.
These board shorts have a triple stitch through the back, through the front, and then a double stitch on the trim. These board shorts offer a non corrosive zipper pocket on the side as well as a convenient nylon loop good for storing your key and or your fin key if you need it and you’re on the go, you need to boogie, need to cruise. Stash your key inside, you’re out there. The pocket on the back is a very very durable strong velcro with drainage holes in the back. These pockets don’t fill with water, drain perfectly. What’s also convenient about these board shorts is that the velcro does not frail and or lose it’s strength.
I’ve had some board shorts in the past with other companies where that tends to be an issue and this is not one with these board shorts. Again in the front, two velcro spots to keep everything intact. There’s an inch nylon give to them so if you’re feeling bloated from the night before pounding too many beers with the boys, you can loosen it up and go out there. What’s also cool is that these nylon strings are non slip so when you tie it once, it’s done, you don’t have to re-tie it, you’re not having to worry about “I need to tie it” or whatnot. What’s also convenient is this loop on the side, when you’re finished surfing and you got to cruise to work, you kind of just put your keys on the side, get out there, cruise to work, put your wallet in the back, cash in the pocket, and you’re on the go.
These board shorts retail for about $62 so if you’re interested in picking out a pair, click on the link and we’ll get you all set up, The 309 OG athletic fit board shorts made by CG Habitats."
While the 309 OG Athletic Fit gives a nod to the past, these board shorts are built for the future. Their classic silhouette blends an athletic fit with an above-the-knee cut. An adjustable waist, no-slip drawstrings, and four-way stretch fabric match your moves. And when it’s time to step out on the town, slip your keys and cash in the Velcro back pocket.
