    Details

    Living up to their name, the Patagonia Men's Stretch Wavefarer 20in Walk Shorts are a stretchier version of the original Wavefarers. Made of a lightweight, stretch-woven nylon blend with a DWR-finish and built-in UPF 40+ sun protection, these shorts are ready to spend all day out in the sun and by the water. A contoured, self-lined waistband with a ladderlock drawstring offers a secure fit, while the forward inseam at the crotch eliminates chafing and the seat design enhances movement.

    Worthy of higher cost.

      A lot of thought was put into the creation of these shorts. Images do not show rear view; large back pockets slanted for easy access from natural motion of reaching back. One pocket contains additional pocket with a elastic string (connect keys, etc) secured by a zipper. Front: No zipper, "zipped out" with 2 reinforced bottoms and tie string.

      Chino meets board short

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 33

      These are a great combo of two different types of shorts. As described they're a chino style with stretchy board short material. This means you can pretty much do anything in them...be it casual or active. I've ridden my bike, sprinted and conducted intense calisthenics sessions in these with absolutely no restriction in movement. I have not worn them in the water, yet as I own Patagonia's stretch wavefarer board short for that use. However, it is nice to know that if I needed to I could, and I feel confident that these would perform just as well.

      As usual with Patagonia these are very well designed and constructed. Great mesh pockets, flat buttons and a draw cord for those who find themselves in the water swimming or surfing. My only issue was with the sizing. I usually wear a 32 in Patagonia, but noticed some inconsistency in the current line up. I prefer my boardies to be slightly tighter due to the material giving a lot when submerged. Since I am using these more for dry/land pursuits I went with the 33's. I recommend ordering a couple of sizes to alleviate potential fit issues.

      All in all these are great and perform as described. I'll probably get another color.

      Super excited to wear these more often

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 34"

      Just got 'em and I can't wait to wear them more. So far I've worn them hiking and to a dip in the river, post hike. The material is slightly thinner than an average hiking short, so not ridiculously durable but will stand up to some abuse. More of a board short material but they look and act like regular shorts. Very light weight and perfect for California summers.



      Sizing is perfect for me at 34" and comes down to right above the knee.

      Super excited to wear these more often

      Great all around adventure short

      Casual looking short with a great fit! They stretch, dry quickly, and so far have held up pretty well during weekend trips to the desert. So far I'm really impressed by the versatility and durability. I will definitely be getting another pair.
