Hybrid Shorts: The Surf & Turf of Stretch Shorts

The surf and turf of summer shorts and a Flag & Anthem customer favorite year after year, our MadeFlex Any-Wear Hybrid Short will get you anywhere you need to go in comfort and casual style.


The Only Short You Need This Summer

Hybrid shorts are the perfect crossover between the typical casual short and your favorite board short or swim suit. In other words, they look like the standard summer short but have all the performance technologies of a swim or board short, including quick-dry, incredible stretch, moisture wicking and mesh pockets that let water drain easily. 


The Catch? Just The Next Wave

Our MadeFlex Any-Wear Hybrid Short will take you from land to sea (and vice versa). Made from a premium stretch performance fabric equipped with moisture-wicking and quick-drying technologies to take both wet and dry in their stride and offer you full range of motion as you move throughout your day.

Our hybrid shorts can take a splash - or even a swim - and look great in time for happy hour.


Wear-With-Whatever Versatility

Our hybrid shorts aren't all about the tech features - they also look great. Available in tons of colors, textures, fresh patterns, and versatile prints, plus two great inseam lengths (classic 10" + new 8"), you can dress them up with button-downs and short sleeve shirts or keep your look more casual by pairing them with your favorite graphic tee.

Trying to decide which pair is right for you?

Here's a little about each of our favorites. 


The most versatile all-around, this style features a zipper side pocket on the right leg great for storing a scorecard on the green or keeping your valuables safe in the water. 

The same as the regular Any-Wear Hybrid short except without the side pocket for a more streamlined look. Both styles have the fastest drying material of all our shorts, great if you plan to wear them in the water. 

If you're after a more refined look, grab these. The added cotton gives a softer, more traditional-shorts feel, but they won't dry as quickly as the regular and Ripstop versions. Also available in prints.

The softest in the bunch with the highest cotton blend, the "slub" (a subtle, irregular horizontal banding in the fabric) adds some visual interest and helps mask dirt if you're planning to be active all day.
