Though each Patagonia® product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, we can generalize our fit descriptions in four ways:
Formfitting: Conforms to the body's contours.
Slim Fit: Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.
Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body.
Classic Boy Fit: Boxy, athletic, with a traditional crew neck.
Anika Fit: Formfitting and longer in the torso, with a wider, deeper neck (not quite scoop).close

not what expected
May 05, 2009
The shorts were much more colorful and baggy than expected. Had to return.
May 29, 2009
Wish more people carried odd sizing. Perfect fit, dry quick, just what I was looking for.
November 08, 2006
I wore these shorts for nearly a week straight while camping on the Outer Banks. They rocked, dried quick with sufficient pockets for the "essentials"
June 28, 2009
These shorts are the best! Fit, quality, and brand.
September 11, 2005
Like the zipper instead of velcro nice touch.
February 06, 2010
These are simply the best board shorts I have owned. I have a few pairs and pretty much spent all summer in these things. Very light and comfortable and dry very quickly. A+
The shorts for me
April 06, 2013
These are my favorite board shorts. Fit true to size, nice fabric and super comfortable. There is a reasonable amount of size adjustment in the waist (better than a couple of other brands I have tried). The length is perfect on me and they look great.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever
Great Board Shorts
August 11, 2010
These fit perfectly, super comfortable and they don't fade when you wash them to boot
August 14, 2006
Shorts are cool and dry quickly. The plaid gives them a scottish flair.
Had to return.
March 22, 2010
I ordered these for my husband when they were an Altrec Deal of the Day. Being female, I am not familiar with men's board shorts, but I assumed there would be a liner in them as in swim trunks. I was wrong--no liner. Also, they ran small. My husband usually wears a 32 or 33, and the the 34 was tight on him. Although they were attractive and well made, I had to return them:(
June 10, 2009
The best pair of board shorts that I have ever owned! Great fit, dries fast, and look great. Buy some now!!!!
Another great Patagonia product
April 16, 2005
I bought these for my husband and he loves them!
June 27, 2006
look good, fit good,quick to dry.and they even look good on an old man...whats not to like
June 03, 2009
Theses boardshorts have surpassed my expectations. They are comfortable, dry quickly and well constructed. Pocket location on the side is ideal....
Style and Substance
May 17, 2010
I bought 2 pair of these board shorts and am very pleased with their fit, finish, and construction. Patagonia is well know for the quality of their gear and clothing, so I am looking forward to wearing them for many summers to come.
favorite pair of boardshorts
January 20, 2010
awesome fit, really well made, dry super fast, very comfortable, very stylish. my favorite pair of board shorts ever.
July 10, 2013
These are nice board shorts. Patagonia always makes great products. I like the zip pocket on the side. I'm 5'8" and 165lbs, so the 33 waist fit perfectly.
November 03, 2006
Very well made and comfortable. I had to buy a slightly larger size so that they would sit lower on my hips. The price was definitely right.
My first, but not my last!
May 17, 2010
Love the fact that they don't have the muffin top thing going on when I'm in the water. Drawstring works very well and the zippered pocket with the stretchy loop comes in handy for keys. Length is just above the knees.
Best board shorts
May 05, 2010
These have a awesome fit, dry super fast and are comfortable. I have several other pairs of boardshorts but always wear the patagonia wavefarer.
Just what I was looking for!
December 17, 2009
I was looking for a board shorts that I could both swim in and wear casually for quite a while and finally came across just the right pair. I'm happy with the style and would recommend going a size above for optimum fit. I'm looking forward to wearing them both in and out of the water on my upcoming trip to the tropics!
great shorts - perfect for comfort and style
June 28, 2005
The shorts are great; I received them in a very short time; I am very pleased with the whole process. The only drawback is that I can't wear them everyday to the beach! (I do have to work!)
Love these board shorts!
December 30, 2013
True to size, I am a 33 waist and ordered these in 33 and they fit perfect, I love the fit and feel!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
April 04, 2010
I own two pair of these shorts. Durable and comfortable. Highly recommended.
August 05, 2009
I work at a canoe livery, so I need something rugged and reliable to pull on in the morning. These are great shorts to wear day after day, and they look and feel great even without washing! I also love the handy pocket placement and the built in pocket drain: a very nice feature if you're in and out of the water constantly! These shorts will be a great addition to your outdoor wardrobe.
Fit is awesome!
March 21, 2005
The meshed lined waistband is super plush and fits right on the hips nice and secure, even after dunking a 5 wave set. Zippers are killer for ez acess and doesn't stick to everything or blow out like velcro does, the zip fly is much nicer to lay on too. Key clip works great and there's the option of using the elastic cord for those large plasitc top keys as well. Drawstring occasionally comes undone, but I just double tie it and it's fine. It's cool to finally have a pair of shorts that gets the job done without all the flashy visual bells and whilstles. I'm very pleased and I can't wait to get a few more!
Not a good fit for me
March 13, 2010
Quality shorts with good features. Unfortunately the legs are cut a little baggy for my liking, so I sent them back. Sizing is true to waist measurement.
Another quality Patagonia product
September 29, 2006
Sizing runs small, but since I knew that I ordered a size larger and they fit perfectly. I have worn a Patagonia boardshort for the last 5 years and they have held up to any activity which demands quick drying, strong and secure fitting shorts. I dont think you can find a better short, especially at this price. These bad boys arrived at my place within 3 days of ordering too. Thanks Altrec.com!
September 16, 2013
These are my go-to shorts for just about everything. They're great for the obvious uses at the beach and lake, but I like them for everyday use as well. Solid, durable and dries quickly. Bought 2 more pairs after my first summer with them, just so I had some variety.
