I've been wearing a sarong on the river for a decade at least. They work great when "hanging" out naked and you need to do a quick cover up... it's right there, tie one knot and you're good to go.

Sarongs are great, but I actually prefer the cheap, long, unfashionable skirt I bought at Sears a few years ago. My sarong-tying skills are not the best, and I like that the skirt stays in place while moving around the boat or hiking, is easy-on and off, and I don't worry about subjecting trip mates to racy games of peek-a-boo.

Guys got a preferred way to tie your sarongs?

Do you go for the fancy "shorts" styles, or do the simple short or long wrap with a knot or rolldown at the top?

I use a soft cam strap, wrap the sarong and secure with the strap as a "belt". When I wear a Sarong and not a Kilt, I prefer the long style.

Someone shared a way to secure a sarong that he learned in Hawaii. A bus driver was wearing one, and my friend asked how he kept it on. The reply,
"Oh, I just roll it." Try it. Works great. Wrap it around your waist so the end by your ankles is even and it's the right tension, then just put a few rolls at the top. It holds great, AND it gives you a little pouch to carry small items.

The caveat to that is you need to roll quite a bit to get it to hold, tried the method years ago and is fine for just sitting with little activity, but does not work well for setting up camp etc. I did get it to hold that way by rolling up quite a bit, say 5 or 6 complete rolls, but then the sarong was almost up to my knees (that being said, I'm 6'3" tall)

Also good beta.

At 6' 5.5", I'm also much taller than the original target demographic.

How can it be "so wrong" when it feels "So Right"?!
