    Great trunks

      Great trunks for anytime outdoor activity. However, i got the orange pair and they seem to stick to my legs when they're wet. I know that that's a typical occurrence for any trunk but , these turn semi-see through and also reveal quite a bit .

      Wear them to the beach and beyond

        Great versatile pair of summer shorts. You can wear them to the beach and when the group decides to head straight to the bar, you can roll with your group without worrying about changing. They are lightweight, comfortable and have deep pockets to accommodate your gear. Go for the Original 5" if you're mainly wearing them as a suit, and Long 7" if you are wearing them off the sand.

        All Day Comfort

          Patagonia does it again with these. I wear out on the boat fishing all day. They're comfortable and lightweight but have deep pockets to hold extra gear. Exactly what you expect from such a quality brand.

          Wear 'em e'r day

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: Medium

          Got these since I can't find my TNF versions for sale anymore.

          The fabric has some texture to it; it's not totally smooth as are my TNFs. Not sure that matters, but FYI.

          I plan on eventually cutting out the swim suit liner because eventually I'll find a situation where the hem on the liner chaffs. I've worn these on an 8 miles run on the mulch track in Liberty Park and had no chaffing issues, so may be I won't have to cut out the liner. But you can't wear anything but tidy whities underneath.

          I wish one of the hand pockets zippered, like my TNFs. But the pockets are relatively deep, so keys and pepper spray and gummy bears don't fall out.

          The adjustable waist string is a nice option, but not critical.

          Overall, I prefer my TNF version of these, but since I can't get them anymore, I'll wear these til I wear them out. Then I might look at other brands' offerings. Still, a very well designed and made item, just not quite the same as my beloved TNFs.

          Shorts I was searching my entire life :)

            This is the kind of shorts I was looking for. More casual, and smaller (more of a European style). The color looks awesome. The short is super light and comfy. I would recommend it anytime if you also like this style. Five Stars!

            Great swim trunks

            • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
            • Fit: True to size
            • Size Bought: M-7

            Bought these for my swim trunks for this year since apparently no one makes trunks anymore, only board shorts! They are capable of a lot more though. I originally got the M-5s but when I tried them on and realized I was 40 years old, I returned them for the M-7s. Perfect fit.

            • Size Bought: S-7

            Your quads deserve some exposure on those sunny days at the crag. The 7" works great under the harness if you'd like to stay on the modest side while still crushing with maximum mobility. Under the harness, the 5" version is definitely for experts only.

            Go-To Everything Shorts

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

            I've used these for everything. Hiking and swimming especially and they've done amazingly. The net is a little unnecessary but other than that, the build is terrific. They've snagged on rocks, trees, and cacti without so much as pulling a thread out of place. Great shorts and I'll definitely be buying more soon.

            Patagonia Baggies Shorts

              I bought t"hese shorts for my boyfriend, and I consider them the perfect "adventure shorts". You can pick your length, if you want to show a little thigh, go 7", if you want to show a lot of thigh, go 5".

              They do run a little big, He is a size 32 - 34 waist and the larges were huge on him and we had to return for a medium. Other than that they are great! I got two colors :)

              Just the right amount of thigh

              • Size Bought: Large

              Great pair of shorts. Wear these for everything. From working out, to hiking, to swimming, these things hold up. Just make sure you tie up your drawstring before going into the water.....

              Great Shorts, sizing was off for me.

              • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
              • Fit: Runs large
              • Size Bought: Small

              I typically wear a 32" waist so I ordered the M-5. I like the length and I'm a big fan of the shorts. If i'd wanted to really pull on the drawstring and tie them tight I could have made the medium work. It was just too big though. I returned my first pair and am waiting for the color I like to show up in a S-5.
              Update: 2 pair and counting.

              Perfect Shorts

              • Fit: True to size
              • Size Bought: Medium

              I love these 'Baggies' shorts. They are super comfortable, fit really nicely, and are usable in just about any situation. Great for lounging around the house, going for a swim, taking a hike, or going kayaking. They dry out quickly after a day of activity.

              Love that they still make these in a nice 5" inseam, too. It's a perfect fit.

              Great for the gym, or whatever

              • Size Bought: Small-5inch

              Great, comfy shorts. I use them for the gym and lounging around. They dry quickly and the liner isn't too restrictive.

              • Size Bought: medium

              These shorts are comfy, simply put. I've worn these for lounging, SUP, swimming, hiking and camping.Great range of motion all around. They run a little short on the legs but it gives you that retro look. Love these shorts. Everyone needs at least 1 pair!

              A.O.K.

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              I really like the diversity of these shorts. I have worn them swimming, hiking, running, and to play soccer... The durability seems solid. I recommend these.

              Shorts for everything.

              • Size Bought: Large

              I've worn these shorts from Mississippi to Utah and they are good for everything. Climbing, hiking, water....laying around, whatever. They're somewhat short, so if that isn't your end game, might look elsewhere, but if that is your cup of tea, go ahead and scoop these up!

              Best multi-purpose shorts ever

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

              I have these same shorts in about 5 different colors, and these are definitely my go-to shorts for the summer (well, year-round for Houston actually). Ready for the pool or stuff around the house/yard, I wear these pretty much all weekend long. The only thing I would change is to reduce the depth of the pocket (they go all the way down to the bottom hem) and possibly offer with a boxer-brief liner instead of the brief liner, but for the versatility, they just can't be beat. I have bought both the 5- and 7-inch inseam, and I think I prefer the 5, but they are both great.

              Swimsuit plus

              • Fit: True to size
              • Size Bought: large

              readily usable as a swimsuit, but the fabric is sturdy enough to hike or do yard work. The toughness of the fabric can translate into some chafe potential if you hike in them a lot. i just replaced a 10+ year old pair - the elastic in the waist was cooked and no longer stretchy. side note - if you tend to jump into deep lakes or quarries from high up, or use them for surfing, windsurfing, or other water sports where you get smashed around in the waves, the snap rear pocket tends to blow open. Better off with Patagonia's board shorts & the zippered pocket for those conditions. these run a bit oversize - i often wear XL shorts but prefer the large in these.

              Unanswered Question

              These shorts are too tight! These don't quite fit the way that Baggies used to fit. These are now more trim in appearance but don't allow the freedom of movement that the older ones did...

              Can anyone recommend a pair of shorts of similar quality and material, just made a bit more functional than these are? These will work fine as a swimsuit but not quite as the do everything shorts that Baggies used to be.

              Thanks folks!

              What is the inseam length of the Patagonia baggies shorts? In inches, please. It now simply says " above the knee" which might be very different for tall & short customers. Thanks.
