patagonia does not fail

I am a huge fan of all things patagonia - I got these shorts to go with a patagonia bathing suit (which I also love). They run a bit small though so heads up - I'm 5'5", 145 with "thicker" thighs.. my patagonia bathing suit is a medium that fits perfectly and I am usually a size 8 but I had to go up to 12 in these to get a good fit. Otherwise, I really love them they are the perfect length and they are very comfortable - I want to wear them all the time!

i really hope they make these shorts forever, because i don't ever want to be without a pair. I am 5'5, 120, and bought these in a size 6 - they fit perfect. I swam, hiked, boated (all in one trip) - and these rocked!!!

Love these, perfect fit, very comfortable!

I LOVE these shorts, just got them, but they will be perfect for the river!!! The fit/length is absolutely perfect. I order an 8 in khakis and jeans from Gap/Old Navy/basically anywhere, so ordered an 8 in these and they fit PERFECTLY!!! I love the waistband tie instead of a snap, so they can be let out a bit if we happen upon a big post-trip meal (or camp meal, at that!). I ordered the Patagonia Kupala Bikini Top in Babylon: Flash Pink which has the exact same colors, different pattern. Goes together perfectly without being too matchy. Patagonia has never let me down!

Love these, perfect fit, very comfortable!

Suppose I should add, I'm 5'11" and weigh 140 pounds, almost always wear a size 8. :)

I want to know if these shorts will 'poof'...

I want to know if these shorts will 'poof' out (exterior fills with water and looks ridiculous) as some swim shorts do in the pool...

Responded on

these don't "poof" they are actually a bit stiffer material, and don't look ridiculous for your underwater photo shoot.

super small

So disappointed when these arrived because they are super cute. I ordered a size up, as suggested, and still they look awful.
Really nice shorts, but beware they definitely run small!
Sad to say these have to go back :(

Go shorts

Best shorts ever, wore them hiking, swimming, running, bike riding. Great fit and very comfortable - great length (not too short shorts, just short enough to be a bit foxy, sporty, and action packed all in one)

Great color on someone who is fair. You should know before you order it there is no liner in the shorts. Also it tends to run small so order a size up.

Wave bye to other board shorts
