Volcom Cinch Fly Patent Approved

COSTA MESA, CA (October 2nd, 2013) – Volcom has been awarded the patent to our “Cinch Fly” Volcom boardshorts technology!

“The Cinch Fly was created to eliminate the bulkiness and maximize comfort. Through the strategic design on the fly, we were able to discard the zipper without adding an inner gusset/extra fabric.. This dramatically reduced the amount of fabric & construction on the front of the garment which in turn makes the boardshort more comfortable in the water.. We were also able to eliminate one of the eyelets by using two drawcords that are bar tacked to the waist tab and engineered to make sure the fabric wears flat on the body.. When fully cinched and tied, the fly and waistband is locked into place.. No collapse. No failure. Ultimate comfort.”

– Joe Frizzelle, Senior Men’s Boardshort Designer
