Patagonia Women's Island Hopper Shorts:
A pair of tropical shorts should protect you from scratches when you're bushwhacking to the beach. They should also protect you from the elements, allow ease of movement, and possess the degree of modesty appreciated by most island cultures. Island Hoppers, the lightest shorts we make, achieve all that. Made from a soft but resilient nylon/polyester blend with built-in sun protection (30+ UPF), they feature a seamless waistband that has a snap closure and wide belt loops. Pockets are plentiful and include two front passport-size pockets, two thigh pockets (one of which zips for security) and two rear drop-in pockets. Regular fit.
