These shorts are environmentally friendly and packed with great features for travelers, including a waterproof pocket.

Tuck your phone into the waterproof side pocket and you can even go swimming without a care in the world. It might seem risky, but the brand behind Sloppys Shorts is completely confident your device will emerge unscathed.

In addition to the pocket, the shorts are water-repellent and super breathable for when you are hiking or exploring, with odor protection and quick-drying materials for those long backpacking trips.

Every material used in the shorts is vegan friendly, too, so you can be sure you are not contributing to damage to animals or the planet as a whole.

There are men’s and women’s shorts available, with slightly different cuts to better suit different body shapes. As part of the hugely successful Kickstarter campaign for the shorts you can also bundle up with an eco-friendly, stainless-steel water bottle to save using plastic.

The shorts will cost you $110 when they are released in July 2019. That may seem a bit steep, but if the waterproof pocket works as advertised then you might find Sloppys to be a bit of a bargain.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
