Don't want to worry about packing swimsuits in your luggage? No problem. Our water shorts and other water gear are perfect for splashing around without stressing over your clothes.

 

Splash without worry in our water shorts

 

You don't need full swimwear to wade in the river or splash in the shallows of the lake. Ditch the swim trunks for water shorts and a water shirt. The quick-drying, water resistant design makes these shorts perfect for hiking, camping, wading, and even watersports like riding jet skis. Add in some waterproof shoes and you've got the perfect outfit to make it through the splash zone unscathed. Like our other sun protection clothing, our shorts have sun protection factor up to UPF 50, to help protect you from sunburn.

 

Choose your style: belted, board short, mini, and more

 

Go for style with a colorblock look, a bold pattern, or simply a one-tone bright color. Try mid-length men's and women's board shorts for a classic summer look. Or throw on a shorter inseam style with an elastic waist. Grab a pair of shorts that ties in the front or even go for a skort. Whatever you choose, accessibility to the lake shore or riverside has never looked this good.

Shopping for someone else? A gift card is a great way to share The North Face style while letting your loved one pick their favorite look.

 

No need for swim shorts: our water shorts keep you comfy

 

Relaxing at camp or out on the trail, we want you to be comfy in your new water shorts. A drawstring waist lets you adjust the fit just to you. Plus, check out our extended women's plus size up to XXL and 3XL for the best fit. Our stretch board shorts move with you, letting you run, jump, and climb. The moisture-wicking fabric keeps the sweat from building up, and they're perfect to pair with your favorite classic t-shirt and some waterproof boots. Plus, cargo pockets lets you keep your necessities on hand on the trail. Just make sure to be careful of any electronics while wading!

Add some new favorites to your outdoor wardrobe with our best sellers.

Don’t fear a little splashing water, whether you hike next to a waterfall or go wading in a river. Shop our water short and other water-ready styles.
