Polyester vs Nylon

We offer shorts in two fabric options: polyester and nylon. We've outlined the features of each one below, to help you decide on the perfect pair.

  • Weight: The most noticeable difference, our polyester shorts are lighter in weight than our nylon shorts. The polyester shorts are similar to the weight of standard basketball shorts, while nylon has a more substantial feel. 

  • Drying Time: Polyester dries faster than nylon, making it a great choice if you'll be in a hot and humid environment.

  • Pet Hair: If you have pets, nylon tends to attract pet hair more than polyester.

  • Preference: Overall customer preference is generally the same, with no clear favorite between the two.

Printed patterns are offered in Polyester only.
