    The Strider gets serious.

    The Strider Pro 5in Short was designed specifically for serious trail running. The polyester body wicks moisture and dries quickly, and a Deluge DWR treatment gives this pair of shorts water-resistant protection to help keep you dry in rainy weather. Air Flow mesh panels provide excellent breathability, and a built-in mesh liner offers more air flow so you can get out in hot temperatures. The liner also features Polygiene odor control to keep it from smelling like you do after long runs. Four envelope pockets are perfect for energy gels, and one zippered pocket makes sure you don't lose your keys on the trail.

    • Polyester (50% recycled) body with Deluge DWR treatment
    • Air Flow mesh panels
    • Polyester mesh liner with Polygiene odor control
    • Regular fit

    Good shorts but could be improved.

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

    Likes:

    - Decent overall running shorts. I would buy again.

    - Nice colors and stylish.

    - The fabric doest absorb sweat and get heavy in summer

    - Waist string on the outside of the shorts. The string doesn't stretch and is great in hot weather to keep up sagging shorts when loaded with heavy items in side pockets such as an iphone.

    -The side pockets will fit a pair of sunglasses or iphone 5 in a lifeproof case. If there was a zipper it might secure a small point and shoot camera but thats really asking a lot.



    Dislikes:

    Like a lot of Patagonia shorts I find the liner brief too shallow and not enough room for the goods. The leg openings are also too tight. I purchased a medium which is generously sized at the waist. I also think the leg openings need more elastic and a better material. They are tight, restrictive, and annoy me often, especially the exposed stitching which doesn't have stretch. MH or TNF do a much preferred liner.

    -Length. 5" is a ok length for casual use but a 3.5" option would be better. There is just too much extra fabric flapping around I don't need. It gets annoying going up steep hills in hot weather.

    Good shorts but could be improved.

    Great Shorts

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

    After seeing how much GoBroncoBilly like these shorts I gave them a try. These are by far my favs.

    Other than being very comfy, I stashed a Patagonia Houdini jacket, keys, and 3-4 Gu gels in these things ... or as I did on my last hike/run, iPhone, Gopro, keys, and 2 Gu gels. Geez!

    Definitely recommend and I will be getting more...and they come with the best product guarantee in the biz...Patagonia.

    Amazing Shorts

    • Size Bought: Medium

    I love these shorts. The outer material is very light and its very soft on the skin when your running. Drys very fast and is durable. The Inner is very soft, almost like silk material. I love the inseam, because it doesn't feel rough on the skin. I got a medium and the waist has a strong hold. It has a draw string but i don't use it. I like that i can move the draw string to the inner. Even the draw string is tough material and it doesn't feel cheap. The zipper pocket glides smooth when opening and closing. Just letting you guys know that be ready to show some legs because they are short but worth it.

    Who wears short shorts?

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: Medium

    As my review title suggests, these leave little to the imagination. But, they are 5" split shorts, so you probably know what you're getting into if you're even considering these. Let's just say that you and the rest of the world will be acutely aware of how little sun your thighs have gotten the first time you run in these.

    The pocket system is fantastic and mostly movement-free. Plenty of room for your key, some gels or chews, a pair of gloves - heck, a houdini will even fit in there, but it looks pretty goofy. For shorter warm weather runs, you can easily fit everything you need in the pockets and just carry a handheld bottle to eliminate the need for a pack.

    The fabric is super light weight and dries almost instantly. I've never had shorts with an integrated liner and was a bit skeptical. I had visions of the itchy mesh liner in bathing suits I had as a kid. After the first run in these, I could tell it wasn't going to be an issue. The liner is soft and chafe-free, and keeps everything in place if you catch my drift. All in all these are extremely comfortable and so light and minimalist you'll find yourself double checking to make sure you're wearing anything at all.

    Good storage

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

    Love the pockets on these. Great for trail running. Fit is identical to other patagonia running shorts I've worn. The liner is snug and I was initially worried that this might cause chafing, but I've since worn these for a marathon and a 6 hour trail run without any discomfort.

    Weightless with pockets

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

    Great side pockets in these light weight running shorts. The rear pocket could have been a bit larger, but certainly did the job. The addition of a compression short would make them perfect. Wash and wear great!

    Swing low, sweet chariot

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

    I can't find one picture of me running, cycling, or hiking where I am not in these shorts. Bought them two years ago and they honestly are my daily driver of active gear. They are featherlight and the pockets are solid for keys, bars, wallet, and phone. I have put well over 1,000 miles in these and they show little to no wear. I did remove the liner because, well, the boys need to breath.

    Great for long distance trail running

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

    I run long distances in the trail and in hot and humid conditions. Very frequently I had to wear a compression shorts just to avoid chaffing, not because I need the compression. I prefer to be free when running, with as little restriction as possible.
    Finally I found a pair of shorts that frees me from having to wear compression shorts. The inner liner is well constructed that I do not feel any chaffing at all. The out fabric is also light and you don't feel them in the way of your legs and there isn't bunching like you might get from regular running shorts.

    If you do long distance trail running, you are gonna like it.

    BEST...SHORTS...EVER

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

    Read all the reviews, watched all the videos. Investigated every trail running short out there...TNF, Salomon, Brooks. Bought em all and wear only one. Patagonia Strider Pro. These things are by far the best. Stop trying to decide and just place the order.

    The product is more fitted than a lot of shorts so if you like baggier size up.

    Nice Shorts...little snug

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

    I love these shorts. The material is extremely comfortable. Drys fast. Only drawback is the fit. They are snug. However, I wear a 32-33 in most clothes and the medium fits pretty well. I am able to throw a water bottle in my rear waistband without difficulty. Holds steady for miles and miles. Seem pretty durable. If you go to stretch, watch out, you may give a show to your neighbor. But will definitely buy another pair. My new favs. Holds a ton of food. Able to throw at least 3 gels in each pocket, as well as larger items like Epic Bars/V-Fuel/etc. Back pocket good for keys/ginger chews/etc. Only suggestion is to loosen the "peep-constriction" and to add a waterproof tab for e-lectro pills and they'd be absolutely perfect. Even so, will keep on buying. Great job P!

    Best short in the quiver

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

    These shorts are by far my favorite running shorts. They fit exactly how I wanted them too. Low on the waist and not too short. I use these for my long training runs and have never had any problems. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a solid/minimal long day trail short.

    Shorts for the Long Haul

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

    I have been using the Strider Pros for a couple of years now. There have been a few tweaks over the years and the most recent version is probably the best running short I have ever used. Last year I put over 3500 miles in on the trails and 90% of them were in Strider Pros. The pockets can hold a ton of food, an iPhone or camera, or even accommodate a light jacket like the Patagonia Houdini. I have ripped one pocket from overstuffing it, but it was easy to fix (and patagonia will fix that type of thing for free as part of their Ironclad guarantee). The length of the short is just right, short enough to not restrict leg movement, but long enough to not offend young audiences. The liner can develop a bit of a funky smell over time, but with semi-regular washings it can be kept at a minimum. I am 5'10" and 145 pounds and the small fits me just right. From racing to adventure running this is one of my favorite pieces of running gear that I own.

    WTH?

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

    Can't comment on the quality of the short or performance. I can comment on construction, which is absurd. I'm a 29 waist I wear size small in just about everything, including all Patagonia gear until now. Purchased a small and they would fit great if I cut out the liner. You have to size up unless you don't have testicles.

    Patagucci

    • Fit: True to size

    I like this short; it has been my go-to running short since I first found it two years ago. Downside: expensive. Good stuff: I don't notice them at all / light in weight and in feel; thoughtfully designed.

    The photo shows the pockets. There are two on each side; they close with an elastic gate; one is deep enough for an iPhone. There is one in the center-back, wide and shallow, with a zipper closure (it is also big enough for a phone.)

    Questionable durability

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

    When I first got these shorts I couldn't have been more pleased. Comfortable, nice fit, tons of storage, good looking. They became my go to short ahead of my The North Face Better Than Naked shorts. However, after having the shorts for little over a month and putting them through a handful of longer runs the mesh fabric inlay on the side started to split between the two seams. Highly disappointing for a Patagonia product and a pair of running short at this price point.



    The only reason I gave them three stars is that they are just that comfortable. I ran the 2014 Boston Marathon in them and couldn't have been more pleased with the comfort over the long haul.

    Questionable durability

    I do not have the new version (listed above), but I had a pair of the first version and had a similar problem with that mesh area ripping. It seems to be pretty delicate and wears down over time. I would hope that Patagonia would've solved this in the updated version but it doesn't seem like it.
