Description

This short's up for anything; even so, don't feel guilty if all you do is relax in it.

Stuff your towel and a good novel in your backpack and head to the beach in the Patagonia Women's Baggies Short. This classic piece has been around as a comfortable do-anything short since Patagonia's beginning. Mesh pockets and quick-dry nylon mean you won't stay wet for long if you decide to splash around in the surf. Patagonia designed the regular-fit Baggies Short with vertical pockets so they won't snag on paddles if you wear them river rafting. Since the short is so light and comfy, it works well for the occasional hike or trail run too.

Great All around shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These shorts are great for any summer activity. I can use these for fishing, kayaking running and swimming. Love the colors as well! These fit true to size and go to my finger tips when my hands are down by their side.

Could be better

Pros: Fabric dries stupid fast, great for the river, never look dirty, POCKETS
Cons: The fit is super weird (really tight in waist, too big in hips), the waistband has actually cut my skin with a pack on, they stretch out and make your butt look big after about a day

Can't go wrong

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've tried many river shorts from other manufacturers, but none of them live up to the Baggies standard. The DWR is excellent, the nylon is not stiff or scratchy, the pockets are a useful size, the waist can be cinched down nice and snug so they don't pull off in the water, and they have a great quick-dry : durability ratio. I have hiked hundreds of miles in Baggies, biked many more, maintained trails and gardens, and spent countless days on the water--swimming, canoeing, and kayaking. With these shorts and the right sports bra, I don't even miss my swimsuit on backpacking trips. I'm 5'5" with a 26" waist and muscle-y hips/thighs. The S gives a better range of motion for hiking, but for beach and casual wear, I find the XS much more flattering. It's worth having a pair of each.

Tip for guys: If you dislike the mesh liner in the men's version, just go a size up and buy the women's. You know you wanna rock that pink floral... ;-)

Favorite Shorts

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I wear these shorts at some point almost every day, just because they are so comfy. Other than just hanging out in them, they are really great for water sports since they dry really fast. I have two pairs, black and deco palms alaska blue, and will definitely buy more in the future.

Fits kinda funny

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

If you have hips, these are not flattering shorts. Better for narrow hipped types. Otherwise, you need to size up.

Just Okay

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have actually had several pairs of these shorts over the years because I get them for cheap through my work. They dry quickly, are durable, and are pretty comfortable. That being said, they are not a good material for running because the material is a little thick and stiff. I wear mine on the river, but only for paddle boating. They have front pockets that I have (many many times) caught my oar handles in the pocket when I'm pulling. I'm not that impressed with this Patagonia product, but it's a classic and if you can get it on sale, it's not terrible.

Ehh...

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Granted I had really high hopes for these, i was really disappointed when I received them. Why exactly are they $50?? They don't seem like magical shorts or anything really special. The fabric seems like any other board short. The cut is not flattering, it's quite boxy. Not impressed!

A must have!

I just got back from doing the top down overnight hike in Narrows and I wore these shorts the entire trip! They're very lightweight and they dry super fast! The pockets are great too. Now, I find myself wearing these more than my regular boardshorts!
My only wish is for a liner. They are true to their name, "baggies"and flare out a little.

Do these shorts have a panty?

The perfect shorts

These shorts are PERFECT. When I say perfect, I mean they are a flattering, comfortable fit and they're really functional. They dry fast and feel super durable. The best part? They have POCKETS!!!!!! I loved these so much, I bought 2 pair.
I'm 5'9, 145 lbs and usually wear a size 8, and the mediums fit great on me.

A staple!!

Baggies are a staple for me. I had one pair for 10+ years, split the back seam and sent them to Patagonia to repair - I was more than willing to pay for it - and they sent me a brand new pair!!! Love dealing with reliable companies like this!! The fabric in the newer shorts may not feel as durable as the older fabric, but I've had no issues with them. They really are great shorts!

great shorts

got them for my girlfriend and she loves 'em! perfect for paddling, biking, swimming, or just chilling.

A pair in every color...

Running in these would be my least favorite use for them, although it certainly can be done. Tennis, hiking, rafting, gardening, hanging out around town...These shorts are great for everything and look nicer than many other shorts. One word of caution - Patagonia does has changed the style of these. I happen to like the current style best as the elastic is looser and there is a more relaxed feel to the fabric.

LOVE THESE SHORTS!!

I have worn PATAGONIA BAGGIES for all activities: running, exercise, white water, etc....
BUT, especially LOVE them for tennis! They are lightweight, non binding, AND the pockets each hold 3 - 4 balls for serve practice and warm-up. Love the patterns- they are so darned cute and the black makes a superb competition outfit... serious tourney uniform!! I have a drawer full as does my husband. They also last forever but I always MUST have the new prints & colors!

Perfect wingman

i bought these for my girlfriend for our anniversary. she says they feel great! she's been running and biking in them and says they don't chaffe around the inner thigh, which she has had problems with other shorts in the past. needless to say she is very happy with 'em.

Killer shorts!

Baggies are awesome. They are great for running, playin' a little ultimate or just lounging. They come clean even when caked in dirt and they dry in a snap. Since they are 'baggies' - beware of unintentional exposure - anyone else have this problem? I still highly recommend these shorts - they're great.

Do these shorts have the underwear in...

Baggies last forever!

I had two pair of these shorts for 15 years. The shorts never wore out, although the elastic in the waist finally did. I still wore them using the drawstring though. I finally decided to get some new ones, and the new style/cut is much improved over the old ones from the 90's. These are great for running, hiking, kayaking and other water sports, or just hanging out. Highly recommended.
