In my last golf blog post I reviewed the Antigua Men’s “Quiet” polo, a very stylish and comfortable shirt. A perfect match for the shirt are the shorts I’m wearing even as I write, the Antigua Men’s Santa Fe Shorts.
Santa Fe Overview
Santa Fe is an artsy city located in New Mexico, approximately an hour north of Albuquerque. Santa Fe is the capitol of New Mexico with a population of 68,642. Oh wait, I’m reviewing Santa Fe shorts, not the city…
Santa Fe Shorts
Antigua’s $50 (retail) Santa Fe Shorts are a combination of 95% polyester and 5% spandex. No cotton, which is a very good thing. No wrinkles, no shrinking, no ironing, low maintenance.
The shorts employ the same Desert Dry technology as the Quiet Polo, a technology which pulls moisture from the player’s skin and helps it evaporate, keeping the player dry and comfortable.
A styish “contrast piping detail” runs down the side of the leg.
The Santa Fe Short is available in five colors: Black/Steel (pictured), Navy/Apple, Smoke/Melon, Steel/Margarita, White/Steel.
On The Course
These are some of the most comfortable golf shorts I’ve ever worn. They’re very light on the skin and lightweight. I can definitely attest to the Desert Dry technology, as I feel nice and cool with no excessive moisture, even in some very hot 100+ F rounds.
Even with sweaty hands getting in and out of the pockets is easy.
During the golf swing I feel no tight spots or binding anywhere. The swing is free of restrictions.
One pair of Santa Fe Shorts is most definitely not enough. I could replace all the billions of shorts in my wardrobe with these. I just might. I have yet to find a better combination of style comfort and performance in a pair of golf shorts.
