Slub shorts have the aesthetic of a modern walking short and perform like a flexible surf trunk. These hybrid shorts are constructed with 4-way stretch for maximum mobility in any direction, allowing for free range of motion when surfing, swimming, running, or skating. The recycled polyester, as well as the hemp used, show that Volcom is stepping up to reduce wasteful practices and exploring just how useful quickly renewable resources can be.
V4S Technology - V4S technology creates an ultra-light 4-way stretch and water repellent fabric, providing unrestricted movement to keep you light in and out of the water.
Hemp Fiber - Hemp fiber is one of the most durable materials available. The hemp plant is naturally robust and able to thrive in adverse conditions without the attention that other crops require. This quality makes the cultivation of hemp more ecologically friendly.
Recycled Polyester - Approximately 31% of plastic bottles produced in the United States are made from a material called PolyEthylene Terephtalate, "PET" or "PETE." Usually clear or green, the plastic is mostly used for consumer goods such as soda bottles and food jars, but once recycled and processed, it has a wide variety of eco-friendly applications. While recycling is not the end-all, be-all solution for ridding the world of the plastic bag beast, it is a sustainable path for plastic products and takes less energy to produce than traditional polyester.
Repreve® Recycled Fiber - Repreve® fiber is transformed from at least 95% post-industrial and post-consumer waste like trashed bottles with a trace additive invisible to the eye. It's a difference that can be measured, not just claimed.
