Birdwell’s signature boardshorts have been a favorite in the industry for 60 years, and that’s at least in part due to the brand’s trademark water-resistant SurfNyl material. Now, Birdwell is bringing their water-wary know-how to expert bag-makers Herschel Supply Co. on a line of beach-ready bags and gear made from SurfNyl-inspired material.
The Herschel Supply Co. x Birdwell collection is stocked up with practically everything you need for a day at the beach — or any other outing that requires rugged, water-resistant gear. The collection includes four bags, all of which feature co-branding and styling inspired by Birdwell’s very first board shirts from 1961 and are crafted from water-resistant rugged nylon that bears more than a passing resemblance to SurfNyl. There are Birdwell versions of Herschel’s Heritage Backpack, Alexander Tote, and Seventeen Hip Pack, along with a fun and beachy long tote that features a large screenprint of the Birdwell “Birdie” mascot. The capsule also features co-branded t-shirts, a SurfNyl hat, and — of course — some co-branded boardshorts. The collection is priced from $40 and is available now from both Birdwell and Herschel Supply.
