Best Shorts Ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 210 lbs
    Size Purchased: 34x7

For the big thigh small waist guys like myself these are hands down the best fitting shorts on the market. They not only allow you to move around and go about your daily activities in comfort, but they allow you to do so in style. The durability of these shorts is unmatched as well. They can take on anything from climbing mountains to lounging with your friends while sipping on a cold one.

I bought my first pair at the great outdoor shop in Pinedale, Wyoming 5 years ago since I left my trusty Gramicci G-shorts at home and I wasn't up for battling mosquitos short-less while deep in the Wind River Range . Needless to say the Gramiccis are buried in my closet and haven't been worn since.

If you decide to liberate yourself and get a pair of these bad boys you will not be disappointed! The hefty price tag is worth it trust me!

Hugest thighs ever

  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 6"
    Weight: 145 lbs
    Size Purchased: 32/7

These are quality shorts. I really wanted to like them. The 7" inseam is why I bought these -- the fashion for men's shorts has become far too long -- though this pair seems more than 2" longer than the 5" inseam which I also tried on.

I returned these because the thigh openings are gigantic. In size 32" the waist is great but the thigh opening is 13" diameter. Something closer to 10" would have been appropriate for me.

Baggy and awkward on the thighs

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Height: 6' 4"
    Weight: 240 lbs
    Size Purchased: 38x7

I bought these for my fiance who strictly wears a size 38. He is 6'4", 240lbs, muscular quads. These shorts were very baggy around the thighs, which is unusual. The poofed out awkwardly, and it looked almost as if he was wearing a skirt. Definitely not the right fit for his build. We still love Patagonia gear, just not these on him.

Not true to size

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 165 lbs
    Size Purchased: 32

I wear a 32 in all brands. These run very small. Order up 2" in the waist. Also, I found them overly thick. They're shorts not work pants. The material in these things would withstand a slide down a mountain on your ass. I can only imagine they would take forever to dry. Pass.

Stand Up shorts are tough and that's how they have been made for years. Yes, they will withstand sliding down a mountain on your ass, so you can beat the sh!t out of them. Can't comment on waist size. Mine were always true to size.

Responded on

You're right... They are thick, and have been for years. That's why they call them "stand up" shorts in the description.

my 35 year old pair has a stain

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 160 lbs
    Size Purchased: 32-7

It's impossible to kill these shorts. I have been using them for 35 years and still have some of the old ones that might have a stain or possibly a small tear. Ordered some new ones for the summer. You can't go wrong with these. I challenge you to tear them.

sky's out, thighs out boys

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 1"
    Weight: 175 lbs
    Size Purchased: 32x5

I bought these shorts in 2013 and have wore them almost every day of every summer since. These ARE the shorts you're looking for. I'm 6 feet tall and bought the 5 inch for a couple of reasons. 1) I have great legs 2) going commando with the 5 inch inseam means you get steady airflow up there all day. Swear to god it keeps you at LEAST 10 degrees cooler 3) This isn't AND1 mixtape vol.22, shorts are supposed to be short otherwise we'd call them shants. These shorts are extremely durable. I've used them for climbing, hiking, swimming and picking up women. I get compliments every time I wear them and guess what? All the compliments are from women. It doesn't matter what your male friends think. As you walk through Whole Foods on your way to buy quinoa and kombucha, people's heads will turn as they admire your confidence and physique. Do your love life a favor and buy these shorts.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 9"

I've tried lots of shorts from many places and these are always THE BEST. Patagonia products are not cheap but last for years and years.

Love these shorts

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

7" is the perfect length for me. Hit just above my knee at 6'1". Super comfortable and durable fabric. Doesnt wrinkle too easily.

Stand up indeed

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

Had these shorts for nine years now and aside from the Velcro coming loose recently, these are my go to shorts. Love the deep back pockets, perfect for dropping my phone and wallet and easy enough to reach down into. Comfortable, breathable and time tested. Testament to good design and quality. Time for a new pair...

Not the same....

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

Granted is has been many years since I bought my last pair of Stand Up shorts from Patagonia, but I was truly disappointed to see the huge change in fabric. Yes it is organic cotton, but I was more concerned about getting that heavy, tough, rugged, long lasting fabric same as the vintage stand up shorts in my dresser. Again, I understand things change with time, but in my opinion, this was not a change for the better. Would not buy these again!

I have thrown out all other shorts

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

I guess I am just adding to a perfect review line up here, but I have to make my case. First off, I am a short, stocky guy (imagine rugby player build). Suffice to say, I am not a fan of the long shorts movement. I like short with a 7" inseam. I first bought the standup shorts in a 5" inseam but it's really too short. The 7" is perfect. The shorts feel like they could take a direct grenade hit. The material is really sturdy. Also, love love love the pockets. All pockets two main front, two main rear (with a separate wallet pocket) are deep (like to the bottom of the shorts). I've bought like 8 pairs of these shorts in different colors and basically thrown out all of my other shorts.

what is the difference between the 5" and...

what is the difference between the 5" and 7" shorts? is that the inseam?

Responded on

Hey Brel,

You are correct, the 5 and 7 reference the inseam of the shorts. I will see if I can bribe one of our content guys to get that added to the tech specs.

What's not to love

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

I love the Patagonia Stand Up short so much I own about 6 pairs and they are my go to casual shorts in the summer months. I bought the 5 inch inseam 'cause I've got short (29 inch inseam) legs and feel like the 7 inch inseam looks too long on me. Admittedly, the 5 inch inseam on these shorts seems even shorter sometimes (like when I sit down), because the material is so stiff that it sort of pulls up (or back) when I sit. I feel a little extra exposed in those moments, but not enough to stop wearing them.

I love how thick the material is (they really keep their shape), and I love the deep pockets - particularly in the back. Generally, when I wash them I let them air dry rather than putting them through the dryer (for some reason I think this keeps them stiffer, but that maybe is just me). Can't go wrong with these shorts.

Wear'em casual, wear'em technical

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

I have had these shorts for about a month now and they have been very multipurpose. They look nice and presentable when you aren't climbing or trotting down a trail, but it has enough flex to allow for that too.

Killer shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Look like your old-school dirtbag heroes with these canvas short shorts!
They looked goofy with my chicken legs at first, but I've grown to love these shorts over the years.

I love the functionality of these things. Lots deep pockets, and generous leg openings to allow for climbing/high stepping.
The fabric is super tough cotton canvas, and should definitely last you a few seasons.

Let the sun shine a little on those pale legs of yours with these 7 inch wonders. Make sure you're wearing some briefs though...

The best

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

These are my go to shorts during the summer. They are very durable, and fit comfortably. I'm on my second pair of shorts (still use first pair from many years ago, but the color faded). If you want something that will last a while, these shorts are perfect.

Good old fashioned shorts

Had a pair of these 25 years ago and wondered how the changes might have affected them. After a few weeks of steady use, I really appreciate the new wallet pocket and the fabric is great. These are dependable, comfortable and tough shorts that you won't be disappointed in. I like the length- not too long like so many shorts these days. When you hike or clib stairs the bottom of the short isn't bunched on top of your knee. Great product that will last.

Talked into them

So when Pata had their 50% off sale a month or so back, I went to order the duck shorts. The girl on the phone told me they were out of stock, and my heart sank. She recommended these, and I asked if I'd love them as much as the duck shorts. She said yes, and I took her word for it. Long story short I'm quite glad that I made the purchase because these things rock. My jealous friends make fun of my legs, as the shorts are a little short. They're super durable, but not heavy like carhartt. They're reasonably quick drying, but not like swimtrunks. All around they are my go to shorts. I love being able to climb in em all day, and then head to the pub for a couple beers and not have to change shorts.
