THE TRADITION LIVES ON
The Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT) were an elite special-purpose force established by the United States Navy during World War II. Their primary function was to reconnoiter and destroy enemy defensive obstacles on beaches prior to amphibious landings and were also the frogmen who retrieved astronauts after splashdown in the Mercury through Apollo manned space flight programs. The UDTs pioneered combat swimming, closed-circuit diving, underwater demolitions, and midget submarine (dry and wet submersible) operations. They were the precursor to the present-day United States Navy SEALs. This tradition lives on in the shorts they made famous.
- Adjustable front poll strap with anodized brass O-ring
- Single back patch pocket
- Button fly
Well made and ture to mil spec original
Many mahalos for having these available, they are the same durable, comfortable construction and fit I Remember from the navy in the eighties, made to do hard physical labor with comfort, pull on a wetsuit over with ease. Run, pt whatever, now I just pt, stand up paddle surf , and whatever's. They do outlast by far most expensive name brand board shorts that run close to five times the price. Aloha.
I have been looking for a pair of these for years! Nice!! Would be perfect if you had them in another color like black.
The real deal design. Love them.
