    Comfortable and Perfect Length

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs small
    • Size Bought: 32"

    The Stand Up Short is incredibly comfortable and I love the 5" inseam option. Too many of the shorts I find online and in stores have long inseams that run down to the knees and while there's nothing wrong with this inseam length, I prefer to have a short that is on the shorter side of things for hiking and relaxing.

    The only issue I have with these shorts is that the waist size is not normal. I ordered a 32" waist, which always fits me in all brands, and these were WAY too tight. I had to order up 2" to a 34" to get them to fit properly. I even have 32" pants from Patagonia that fit fine, so I'm not sure why the waist is so small on these!

    Take my advice and order a couple inches larger on the waist than you normally would and feel awesome rocking these for years to come on the trails and on the sidewalks, too.

    Skinny dudes beware

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

    I don't have any doubts about the fabled durability of the Patagonia Stand Up Short. The material feels like soft steel forged in the fires of Mordor and the construction is obviously designed to reinforce high impact areas. But I can't really figure why the thighs are so large. Combined with the funny pocket set up(again I recognize this is more about function than style) they literally look like JNCO decided to make short shorts. All it's missing is some psuedo-urban tag patch on the back. If you have big thighs these are definitely the shorts for you. If you have medium or small thighs these will be highly unflattering.

    THE FIT ..

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs large

    These are sturdy and the 5" inseam could be perfect for not having to cuff them BUT they are SO incredibly loose in the leg.

    I have tiny little get-away-sticks but these look like a skirt on me.

    I was so frustrated with their look that I gave them to my neighbor, a bicyclist with massive trunk-like legs that are ripped to shreds and he has the exact same complaint.

    If you buy them, plan your underwear accordingly.

    Everyday pair of shorts

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

    I bought these as a gift for my father in law and he couldn't be more pleased. These have been his favorite pair of shorts for the last few years and he is always wanting a new pair. He wears them almost everyday so it isn't surprising they are the ideal gift!

    Second pair, and many more

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs small
    • Size Bought: 30 Waist 5" length

    I first bought this pair of shorts from a retailer nearby my home, but found it to be better priced online. I use these shorts for anything and everything. The canvas comes clean even after I get them dirty every day. The pockets are great for hiking. The 5" shorts are very short so beware your choice of underwear if you wear any with them. The 7" would definitely be the safer choice of the two, but honestly most of the time when I wear them they are so comfortable I don't notice.

    Great shorts, horrible sizing.

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

    I have several pairs of Patagonia's Stand Up shorts and have always loved how durable and comfortable they are. These shorts can literally stand up to years of rough wear. The only issue I have ever had with them is sizing; for some reason the waist size differs significantly from all of the other Patagonia garments I own. These run at least 1" small on the waist, i.e. if you are a 34 order a 35 or 36.

    Could be the last pair you buy.

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

    I wanted to love these shorts; I was looking for a pair of tan shorts made of rugged canvas -which these are. But thighs could be a little snugger and my legs feel a little goofy swimming around in them.

    Don't let my personal aesthetic keep you from buying them though! They'll last you a lifetime and I plan to keep them as my 'outdoor' shorts.

    Photo for reference; I'm 5'8

    shorts that can take a beating

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 38

    You won't find a more durable pair of shorts, and they are very comfortable, except when they are soaked. The fabric, hardware, and construction all indicate great quality and design. Like any cotton short, they tend to chafe when they're wet, and they take a good while to dry. i managed to kill one pair in the late 80s by using them constantly canoeing lakes and rivers - the front button/rivet eventually rusted and broke. i have 2 pair of the 7 inch, each about 15 years old, and the hems are frayed a little...and a pair of the 5 inch i bought a year ago. Caveat - these aren't a slim-fit short. if you don't like oversize thighs, you may not like these.

    Great shorts!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 32x7

    Everyone should own at least one pair of Patagonia Stand Up Shorts. They are comfortable, reasonable priced and extremely durable. If you have long legs, the 7" shorts are perfect. I had a pair of 5" but they were a little too revealing.

    Best Shorts Ever

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

    Best Shorts Ever

    Hugest thighs ever

    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 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
    • Size Bought: 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
    • Size Bought: 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.

    my 35 year old pair has a stain

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

    World's best shorts = Patagonia Stand up

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 38 x 7

    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.

    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.

    5'7", 130 lbs, fairly skinny. 5" inseam or 7" inseam?

    Eric,

    Short inseam is really personal preference. Some shorter gentlemen will lean towards the shorter inseam since it might be more proportional to their legs. But at the same time you'll definitely see some tall guys rocking the shorties. (as a note a 5" is a very short pair of shorts in my opinion)
