Why You Should Buy Nylon Shorts from 1921 Movement


Nylon is excellent at allowing air flow and keeping you cool during intense workouts. Its porous fibers help sweat and moisture evaporate from your skin. This breathability will prevent overheating and keep you comfortable, even during high-energy cardio or HIIT sessions.


Nylon shorts are very lightweight, so they won’t weigh you down or restrict your movement. You’ll barely notice you’re wearing them. This makes nylon ideal for activities where flexibility and range of motion are important like running, biking, CrossFit or plyometrics.


Despite being lightweight, nylon is a durable fabric that can withstand repeated wash and wear. Nylon shorts will last through many workouts without losing their shape or performance abilities. They are resistant to damage from abrasion, sunlight and chemicals as well.


Nylon effectively pulls sweat away from your skin to the outer surface of the fabric where it can evaporate. This will keep you feeling dry and prevent chafing.


Any moisture that does build up on nylon shorts will dry very quickly, minimizing how long you feel wet from sweat.


Nylon is resistant to odor buildup from bacteria growth. Your shorts will not retain foul smells even after the most intense workouts.

So whether you're running sprints, doing burpees or riding hills, nylon shorts will keep up with your workout needs. They offer an ideal combination of performance properties to keep you comfortable, supported and focused on your fitness goals.


So there you have it, a stylish way to represent your HBCU and look good doing it. These nylon shorts are comfortable, breathable, and the bold designs will make a statement whether you're in the stands, on the quad, or out on the town. The best part is you'll be supporting your school at the same time. It's a win-win.
