Filson & Birdwell Link up for the Perfect Pair of Shorts for the Summer

As two integral brands to West Coast culture, it only makes sense that Filson and Birdwell are joining forces once again. By enhancing their first joint effort, the two clothiers have crafted the Tac Short 2.0.

The new collaboration is a brainchild of Filson’s rugged woodsy appeal with Birdwell’s surf-ready style. By making use of the latter’s trademark Surfstretch tech, this pair of bottoms features a 90% poly/10% spandex makeup with four-way stretch capabilities. Birdwell has also finished off the shorts with its proprietary SurfNyl reinforcements, for an added dose of durability. And while the updated Tac Shorts are immensely comfortable, they are also extremely sturdy, boasting a double-needle topstitched construction that’s rounded out with reinforced seams.

At the end of the day, comfort isn’t everything, which is why this pair of shorts is incredibly functional, as well. Thanks to its phone-sized utility pocket, additional cargo pocket, and stainless steel hardware, you can rest assured that any gear you have on hand is safe and sound. Plus, thanks to the adjustable side tabs, you can practically tailor these shorts’ fit to your liking. Colorwise, the Tac Short 2.0 comes available in either Khaki or Charcoal, both subtle choices that go with basically everything.

Like anything you pick up from Birdwell, the Tac Short 2.0 is backed by its lifetime guarantee. Make the most of the summer with the latest collaboration, now available for $140 on Filson’s and Birdwell’s online stores.
