Enjoy a Chafe-Free Summer with Coastal Dog Apparel

“I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Dad Central Consulting for Coastal Dog. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.”




 If you’re a New Englander like me, you have been anxiously waiting for Mother Nature to make up her mind, put an end to those chilly mornings and finally bestow some consistent sunshine and warm weather upon us. Well, now that we’re beginning to see high temps remain steady throughout the week, it looks like that time has come at last. For my family, this means that it’s time to dust off the air conditioners, clean the grill, find my 4 year old’s bug-catching equipment, and most importantly, replace the swim gear that both of my boys grew out of in the prior year. Since we have family in both New Jersey and Maine, it is not uncommon to find us during the summer in any one of the many pools, ponds, lakes or beaches from Atlantic City, to Old Orchard Beach and anywhere in between. This is why when my wife and I are shopping for swim clothing; we are always looking for something that is comfortable, but also easy on the wallet. Luckily, I was recently tapped by Dad Central to test out a pair of Coastal Dog swim trunks for my 4 year old and I was very impressed with what they had to offer.

What is Coastal Dog and What Makes them so Awesome?
Coastal Dog Apparel is a Massachusetts-based company that manufactures swim trunks for boys and men. Their colors and designs are great, but what makes this company special is what’s on the inside of them. Instead of the uncomfortable, chafe-inducing mesh that runs rampant inside of most swimsuits, Costal Dog has literally solved the Rubik’s Cube that has plagued every male that has ever donned a pair of trunks.


Instead of the mesh underwear, there is a soft and comfortable compression short material that (though some sort of wizardry I’m assuming) completely removes any possibility of itching and chafing. That means playtime at the pool can last a lot longer than it used to.

 

As if you needed another reason to love Costal Dog, there’s something else you should know. 100% of their profits go towards charities that help children such as Horizons for Homeless Children, Youth Villages and Big Brothers Big Sisters. That way, you can walk away feeling all warm and fuzzing knowing that your purchase is actually making a positive impact on the lives of children. I know what you’re thinking, “A company with a revolutionary product, takes said product and is using it to make the word a better place with no strings attached?” Sounds too good to be true, but that's exactly what they're trying to do.

So to recap, Coastal Dog swim trunks are:
  • Made in the USA
  • Gets rid of that itchy, chafing feeling
  • 100%  of profits go to charity

 Before you and your kids decide to hit the beach this summer, consider Coastal Dog Apparel for all of you anti-chafing needs; You certainly will not regret it!
