Perhaps you are perplexed by the referral to bungey shorts in the comments, and in case you have been looking for this product in your local store, let me explain: When I prepared for my trip to BC, I was told to travel light, because everything I would possibly need could be provided. Wouldn't you know it, the weather was warm and I started looking for shorts. My traveling partners came in size XXSM and XXL and since I am sort of in between, we came up with the bungee shorts. "One size fits all". You can always count on every guy traveling with duct tape and a bungee cord.
So if you find yourself in a tight spot. . . look for a bungee cord. It could keep up your shorts or help you free fall, which ever suits you!!
