Harken Sport Ballistic Eco Padded Pants are reinforced in the knees and rear with ballistic nylon that stretches, a Harken-exclusive material that delivers the utmost in comfort and durability. They are made with renewable and sustainable resources in a factory that meets strict bluesign® environmental impact criteria.
"Our customers keep telling us we got sailing shorts right with the toughness and barely-there mobility of our Ballistic Eco line, and we're pleased to have been awarded this recognition," says Design and Production Manager Heidi Harken.
Harken Sport Ballistic Eco Padded Pants join the popular Eco line, which also includes unpadded pants and shorts for super comfortable everyday wear. The Eco line is made from an environmentally friendly blend of antimicrobial bamboo charcoal and odor-fighting carbon. In addition to 4-way stretch and abrasion resistance, this custom fabric dries quickly, breathes, wicks moisture, and has a soft brushed interior that helps regulate temperature. Shorts and pants include a diamond crotch gusset for mobility, extra-deep hand pockets, a zippered leg pocket, two back pockets, a semi-elastic waistband, double-stitched seams, and YKK zippers. Colors include Carbon and Sand with select versions in Navy and Rust.
