Paddle pants

These pants are so comfortable being seamless in areas of concern. I now have 4 pairs to match my 4 Vaikobi long sleeve rash shirts.

UV Paddle Shorts

This is my 4th pair of Vaikobi shorts - but these are the first which aren't black. They give more comfort in the seat than the padding would suggest and the higher waste is good to avoid getting scrunched with the spray skirt for my kayak. It is such a refreshing change to have paddling specific gear, so I would recommend them without hesitation.

UV Paddle Shorts

As I have been wearing Vaikobi paddle shorts for some years I can 100% observe these newest range shorts are more comfortable on the buttocks and the pull straps are an great idea to avoid embarrassing shorts being pulled down in large swells if tipped of one's surf ski!

Fit Tips

If one of your body measurements is in between two sizes, order the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit. If your body measurements for hips and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, order the one indicated by your hip measurement.

How To Measure

WAIST: Measure around the narrowest part (typically where your body bends side to side), keeping the tape horizontal.
HIPS: Measure around the widest part of your hips, keeping the tape horizontal.
CHEST: Measure the fullest area of your chest. Stand up straight and breath normally.
