    I like them pretty well

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: medium

    Ive worn them quite a few times in the warmer months on long hikes and backpacking trips - quick drying and functional. They are definitely much shorter than the original baggies and a bit slimmer through the hip. Im a curvier in that area and it would be more comfortable with a tad more room. My only gripe with these short is the low rise. If we could combine the higher rise of the original baggie and the inseam with the barely baggies then it would be perfect. Over all these are pretty good.

    Super comfortable and versatile

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

    I really like this short, I bought one and after using it I had to buy another one because it is exactly what I was looking for, it dries quickly, and it is versatile I can use it for hiking, canyoning, going to the beach, etc.

    Ehh

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

    I wanted to love these shorts so bad but they just didn't fit me correctly. I didn't try them in a different size because after paying to return them I just didn't want to mess with ordering them online again and will be heading to a store to try them on. There just seemed to be a lot of awkward extra fabric under the waist band that just wasn't flattering on my body. I've purchased quite a bit of Patigonia items and am never let down by the quality but something about the fit was just a bit off on these for me.

    Great Travel Shorts

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

    The size runs a little large and is baggy in areas I wouldn't normally like but in saying that they are super comfy!! And they're baggy for a reason; so you can do stuff without having to think first.
    I love the colour (HOWLING TURQUOISE), I LOVE the fast dry material. Def recommend these.
    My hips are 100cm (Australian) sooooo 39.3 inches and the large was perhaps a bit big.
    The pockets suck but I purchased the JanSport Waisted Pack and that makes up for it.

    Best short for outdoor adventures

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

    I love these shorts and need more. I wear them all the time whether I'm hiking, camping, and even fly fishing in the super. I'm always looking for a women's hybrid short and can never find any. These shorts are a great substitute and not to mention the fun patterns kill it!

    Adventure shorts

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

    I love the turquoise color of these shorts. They are comfortable and have a good amount of give when you move around. I have a decently size booty and athletic ski thighs and the medium fit just right – any smaller though and I would have swapped for a large.

    The best!

      Patagonia always pulls through, these shorts are perfect for casual wear / kayaking / beach days / just about anything. I bought two more pairs of these baggies and I still want more. Material is durable and dries super quickly. These are my main staple during the summer time!

      Summer Shorts Must, but pointless pocket

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

      I have averaged wearing these shorts at least 3 days per week over the course of this summer, and I (obviously) absolutely love them. VERY durable, dry quickly for those dips in the river or still wet bathing suits, and variety of colors and patterns allows for variety and brings lots of compliments! The only significant downfall is that as stated by previous reviews, the pockets are useless. Treat them as if they are not even there because EVERYTHING falls out of them.
      My last comment is that to look at the name of products you buy; in this case, 'Baggies'. They are not meant to look and fit as other shorts out there. When you sit, they become baggy in the front/crotch area. This doesn't bother me at all, but realize this when you go to buy them.
      I have found the size to be true to other brands sizing. I have a more athletic build, so the Large that I bought fits my rear as I would like it too. The tie on the top helps suck in the elastic if you have the slimmer waist as I do.

      Adventure on friends.

      Order Your Normal Size

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      I read the reviews and decided to go with larges instead of my normal size which is a medium. These were huge...practically falling off. They were also baggy in all the wrong places with my body-type. I would definitely not wear this size out, let alone out on the trail (or worse, swimming). Hopefully, I'll be able to exchange for a smaller size because I really want to love these. The fabric seems durable yet comfortable and the shorts are surprisingly light weight.

      Love the style but funky fit

        I wanted to love these so much and almost kept them in spite of the strange fit, but decided to keep searching for a water short. The waistband seemed a bit tight and fabric bagged out in the front, just below the waistband, even though they fit well everywhere else. Bummer.

        Comfortable Shorts, Pockets are No Good

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: Small

        I really do love these shorts to hike in, but the pockets aren't sewn up high enough so make sure to not put anything in your pockets or it will fall out while hiking! I usually wear XS in Patagonia and got a small in these and they fit great! They dry fast and are lightweight!

        Cute, but runs small

          Love the material. It's very different than a lot of the other Patagonia shorts. I ordered these in a Medium in the longer baggies and they are way too big. I decided to order a small in these and they fit like spandex. Returning and trying the medium.

          I don't need anything else!

            These shorts are the best things ever invented! I bought 3 :) I wear them to work, hiking, kayaking or just lounging around on the beach. I normally wear a size 4 in pants. I tried the small fit in store. It fit, but if you really want the comfortable, baggy feel, I recommend the mediums.

            Patagonia wins again!

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
            • Fit: Runs small
            • Size Bought: Lg

            I have 2 pairs of these great shorts- I typically wear a medium but sized up to a large in these. The 2 1/2" inseam makes for a great length for us shorter girls. I wear them casually and to hike in- either way the shorts are very functional, dry fast, and look great! Patagonia's product durablility makes this an easy decision to pick up a pair (or two, or three)! I love mine!

            Great shorts, super fast drying

            • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
            • Fit: True to size

            I gave these shorts to my Mother as a gift. She really enjoys wearing these comfortable shorts almost all summer. The length is perfect and she likes the material.

            Summer Necessity

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

            These shorts are ideal for any summer setting, dry or wet they are perfect. They come down just a few inches on your thigh so you can still be very active in them. I wear these hiking, climbing, swimming, and just about everyday casually. They dry in a matter of minutes and are the most comfortable shorts I own. Now that I have a few pairs of these I just added my new favorite to my collection, the quiver and quill/bleached stone color are so cute! I'm a 26 waist and a small fits perfect.

            Favorite Shorts for Everything

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

            LOVE these shorts so much I just bought another pair. They are the perfect go to short for summer. I've worn them hiking, running and just out doing errands. They are super comfy and cute and the colors are awesome. After reading the reviews I ordered a size large (5" 9") (155lb) and they fit just how I like which is a little baggie.

            Great baggies!

            • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
            • Fit: Runs small
            • Size Bought: Small

            I really love these. I am 5'4, 110 and I kept the small. I am almost always an xs, but the xs in these baggies felt a bit too small. The waistband was constricting-it fit, but didn't feel comfortable and easy, the way these types of shorts should be. They have a workable drawstring, which is great to tighten them up.

            The shorter inseam is the perfect length, given that the legs are looser. I bought them in black and red. I wish there were more neutral colors available like navy, gray or olive, because I would definitely buy them.

            Highly recommend!

            comfy baggies!

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times
            • Fit: Runs small
            • Size Bought: large

            Dries fast, looks cute, love the color (turquoise!). Great all-around shorts. I went up a size (i'm normally a medium and got a large) due to other reviews, and happy I did. They run slightly small - so the large is just baggy enough and not too short in the inseam.

            Does this board short have a liner? I've seen some swim wear shorts and you are exposed...
