“Delivered:” is a series in which we look at crowdfunded ideas that have successfully shipped to their supporters. We dive into the final product, after its long journey from concept to fulfillment.

The Aquanautia shorts are designed for the ultimate adventure, with pockets that keep dry even in the water. I can keep my valuables with me while swimming and not have to worry about them getting stolen. The creator of the Aquanatia shorts was inspired to create the shorts while at the beach. He found that there was nowhere to put his phone and wallet except in a dry bag. He took the bag and hid it to try to keep it safe. The bag was stolen and all he had left was the shorts that he was wearing -realizing that if he had waterproof pockets, then it would have saved him a lot of trouble.


Aquanatia shorts are designed so that I can keep valuables safely with me while swimming. The pockets are lined with neo magnets that hold my pockets closed.  The magnets instantly snap together on their own. The pocket is large enough that it can fit my phone, keys, and wallet. The aquanatia short pockets work by using water pressure that pushes the magnets even closer together, making a tight seal. My aquanautia shorts have outperformed dry bags and life proof phone cases that I have used in the past. The magnets inside of the short pockets are safe to use with credit cards and phones so that I don’t have to worry about any damage to my valuables.  


The Aquanautia shorts have many comfortable features. They have a tailored fit adjustable waist band that makes them easy to adjust. The fabric is very comfortable in spite of being made from 92% recycled plastic bottles, and has a 4 way stretch. This makes them easy to move around in. Not only are they comfortable but they are also stain and water repellant. The shorts have a dark fabric that looks nice and dries quickly, so I can easily wear them from the beach into public without having to change.

With the Aquanautia shorts, I am ready for any adventure. The shorts are designed to look good while on the go, or in the water. They have shorts that are available for both men and women. There are two different lengths to choose from, and the shorts come in black or blue.
