Never discounts?
We don't do discounts. That makes it possible for us to make garments that last, with high quality and lifetime service. But because we sell the same products year in and year out, we are constantly trying to improve both the design and the quality. After improvements like these, it's hard to proudly sell the old versions at full price – especially when they aren't quite at the level of quality we want to offer. After multiple years of feedback from customers, we are now working on improving the design of the Zipshorts™ padded. The new version should be in stock shortly.

We are constantly discussing if we should be true to our idea of not giving discounts, or if we should be transparent and tell you that certain products aren't quite up to par, and cut the price in an "in between phase". Two good principles go head to head. What we know for certain is that products should be used and not dust away at a warehouse. The conclusion: we have now cut the price of Zipshorts™ padded from 90 Euros to 450 Euros. Think of it as the exception that proves the rule.

The story
The idea behind Zipshorts Padded was born on a sailboat on its way from France to Norway. After sitting for hours on end without any cushioning, the crew cut up styrofoam boxes to make padding they could put in their pants. It worked as long as they were sitting still, but as soon as they stood up it was useless. But what if the padding was flexible and built into the clothes?

Today, Zipshorts™ Padded is used just as much for sailing as for other acitivities: fishing, alpine skiing, kayaking and all other situations where you can get cold and spend some time on your butt.

Our thighs and bottom are are big sources of heat loss. Zipshorts™ Padded can be used as a base layer against your skin, as a mid-layer or outside your pants. The zippers make it possible to take off the pants and put them back on without removing your shoes.

The difference between Ziplongs® Padded and Zipshorts™ Padded is the length. The first goes below the knee and has padding in the knees, while the shorts stop over the knee.

Removable padding
When in direct contact with the ground, your body starts to lose heat. With 4mm of padding you basically have a heated seat included in your pants. Perfect for breaks, around the campfire or any activity where you spend a lot of time on your butt.
