Comfortable and Durable
December 06, 2012

These shorts were perfect in material and comfort. Quality I expect form Patagonia. Great for hiking or just around town. I even wore them biking long distances.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use

love these shorts
December 18, 2010

I originally bought these shorts for my mom and loved them so much that I bought 3 pair for myself. Love the fit, material, and style and you can't beat the price.

Love the color but not the fit. Sits almost uncomfortably lower on the hip line than I thought it would. Described as Regular Rise. They are not.

super light weight

these shorts are extremely light weight and are great for heat and humidity.


Great shorts
February 26, 2011

I needed travel shorts and these are the perfect pair. Excellent fit, material, construction. A bit expensive but totally worth the price for Patagonia quality.

These are very comfy shorts and run true to size. I like the lower waist line. The length is as stated...long. It hits me just below the knee but then again these are large for me so they fall at the waist. I ordered a 4 would probably fit better in a 2. Nice materieal.


Great warm weather shorts
March 22, 2011

These shorts were a nice length - just below the knee and a very light, comfortable, quick drying material. They do fit low on the waist. My only con is that they have a large amount of spandex and stretch out terribly. Mine fit nicely when they arrived and were way too big all over, especially the waist, after wearing them for one day. Order smaller.
