    Details

    If there is one thing that surfers, stand-up paddlers, kayakers, river rats, and beach bums can all agree on, it's the outstanding comfort and performance of the Patagonia Men's Stretch Wavefarer Board Short. Some may be disappointed by the lack of wild prints or loud colors, but true watermen recognize quality gear when they see―and wear―it.  Lightweight, quick-drying stretch fabric, an updated waistband that says put, a new seat design that enhances mobility, and a highly functional pocket all add up to a must-have piece for your next adventure, water-based or not.
    • Lightweight nylon fabric woven with spandex for mobile stretch
    • Deluge DWR finish slows fabric saturation and helps it dry quickly
    • Updated contoured lined waistband offers a secure fit with its a flat-lying fly with a single rubber button and ladder-lock drawstring closure
    • Forward inseam at crotch eliminates chafing, and straightened side seam aids mobility
    • UPF 40-rated sun protection lets you play in the sand and waves longer
    • Self-draining pocket on right thigh has a non-corrosive, recyclable plastic zipper, internal key loop and added zipper pull
    • Item #PAT3492

    Bomber boardshorts

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    Love, love, love these boardshorts! I was worried that they would be too short for my liking since I use the old 23" Wavefarers that they no longer make but I decided to give them a go and I am super happy with them. The stretchy material drys crazy fast too. I'm definitely going to have to buy some more before they sell out.

    Perfect

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

    I should have bought the 36 instead of the 38, the draw string brings them in a bit but they ride a little low even with jammers under.

    Other then my mistake they are perfect, I use them paddle boarding and enjoy shorts that move with me these have a light stretch that does just that. The red/rust color is great and has held up well to the sun and water. Super comfy shorts.

    Super Stretch

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

    These shorts are great! I bought the size 32 and the fit is spot on. I'm 5ft 11in tall and roughly 150lbs. I swim, run, and hike in these shorts. They dry super fast and can take a substantial beating in the mountains.

    Lovely shorts

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 36

    I found these to be excellent build quality, and great to wear and fit. My only reason for 4/5 stars is that there is very little adjustment in the waist. I'm about a 35, and the 36's I got are slightly too big, and the 34's are slightly too small... I wish there was more play in the drawcord.

    Great boardshorts

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

    First pair of Patagonia boardies and I must say these are awesome!!! Great length, fit is perfect and true to size, quick drying, and extremely comfortable with more use. Shipping was stellar as usual w/BAckcountry

    If the wearer is between size 34 & 36, which size should he purchase given the material stretches a little?
