Why we created these shorts:
"I served in the Marine Corps from 2003 to 2009. Specifically, with 3D ANGLICO which stands for Third Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company. Because of our missions, we had to be well versed in Air, Land, and Sea operations. Our training reflected that — it’s not unusual for our Marines to jump out of an airplane, conduct water rescue exercises, and run long distances through mountains all in the same day. Because of that, any gear that excelled in multiple environments was highly valuable to us.
After I got out of the Marine Corps, I continued to train in the same way. I lift weights, run, swim, grapple, kickbox... yet I didn’t own any one pair of shorts that could withstand the demands of every sport I did.
So I wanted to make a short that can meet the demands of all aspects of training. A short that would be valued for both civilian and military use. Meet the Amphibious MK2 Shorts." - Bart Kwan, Chief Executive Officer
