    A bit snug in some areas

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:Runs small
    • Size Bought: 32

    In agreement with one of the other reviews below, these fit a bit snug. I am a 32 waist, and to be clear, the waist size was fine. Unfortunately, it was the abdominal, butt and upper-quad areas which were tight. I am athletically built through these areas, and it seems that these are made for a more 'slim' or 'skinny' build. Could be perfect for the right body type --- I really wanted to keep them as the quality, colors and style were exactly what I wanted. Unfortunately had to return them...kudos to backcountry for an easy return process and excellent customer service.

    Change is not always good

    • Size Bought: 34 waist

    I own several pairs of Patagonia Board Shorts, both the 19" and 21", buying them several years ago. I just went into the market for another pair and found that they have changed, even though Patagonia suggests that they are the same old style. Many of you will like the change I expect, because they simply trimmed them down. I understand the desire to keep up with the trend that "Mad Men" started, the skinny look, but that look doesn't suit everyone. I assumed that Patagonia's alternative versions of the board shorts, with elastic and which are expressly stated to be trimmer meant that the originals were just that....original, but I was wrong. I kept them in the end because they were still passable, but I am worried about their functionality. For the record, I am 6'1", 195 lbs, 34" waist, and my thighs and butt are big. So, if you are a more typical physique you probably will like the change.
