    Great Runners / Athletic Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    These are now my favorite running shorts so far. Many running specific shorts are a bit too short for my taste, but normal athletic shorts are a bit long, but these fall about an inch or so above the knee for me which is perfect. The material feels super light and breathable, but somehow still durable. The zipper on the pocket is also pretty clutch. I can go grocery shopping in these and have pockets to put my phone, keys and wallet. But when its time to run, I can zip the pockets up to make them feel like a more traditional running short. The liner on the inside is also really nice and breathable, and not too restrictive. They're also surprisingly versatile as they didn't look out of place when I wore them to play basketball or to use as hiking shorts. Overall I'm a huge fan and I definitely plan on picking up more pairs of these in the future.

    One of Each Color

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

    I bought these as a gift. The are a great short for running and hiking with lots of zippered pockets. He wants one of every color!

    some changes to the new edition

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    five stars. i have many pairs of the older model and they last forever but i wanted to try a set of the new...the drawstring is external on the front which i prefer. the side pockets are positioned better and easier to use. i feel like the internal liner may be slightly less tight which is a good thing. perfection as usual.

    Favorite pair of runners

    The only bad thing about these shorts is the lack of colors available. Super comfortable, great fit, and convenient storage with zipper pockets

    Solid Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    These are great shorts for trail and all around everyday use. They're comfy, stay cool in the heat, and the length is just right.

    Weird fit - returned 2 pairs

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    These were redesigned in 2018 and fit terrible. Last years version was perfect, these are not. These shorts are so baggy now. The main reason I liked them before was the leg opening was a trim fit. Tried the small and medium, and both are too baggy. Patagonia you ruined these perfect shorts.

    Can't stop buying these

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    Just bought my third pair, I wish they had more colors. By far the best shorts I've ever had. The lining inside is comfy, the length is perfect. the zippered pockets and back right wallet pocket are so convenient. The draw string stays tight. It's hard to find a flaw with these shorts.

    Great Find

    I bought these looking for a pair of cross training shorts for the winter, but now that Spring has finally bloomed, I've really started to appreciate these for their actual intended use: Trail Running.
    They are on the longer side, but I love the storage capacity, and they can seamlessly go from a trail run to being in public, something my 5inch competition shorts cannot do.

    Full Disclosure, I cut the liner out. Not for me.

    Great shorts deliver for a fussy runner!

    I'm fussy when it comes to my running kit, and I was really pleasantly surprised when I receive my new Patagonia running shorts. I wasn't convinced on the lining initially, but after a few runs have found them really wonderful. Love the pattern too. They are a little longer than I'm used to, but I've adjusted to them now.

    Great pair of athletic shorts!

    These are sweet man! they got a built-in compression short, so you are ready for any activity. I love to wear them for hiking, and then an easy transition to getting in the water. But seriously man these are made incredibly well, they have little slits at the bottom, so your strides aren't ever interrupted. All the pockets have zippers on them, so you know your personal stuff isn't going to fall out on a trail run or hike.

    The nine trails shorts have been my go to running shorts for a long time now, and I have needed get another pair because I can only do laundry so many times a week. The small tweaks made to these shorts have actually been beneficial, often times I see Patagonia mess with something perfect. For example, the new liner is much more breathable (I can now wear these above 70 degrees, which was something I was always disappointed to do with previous years models) and the pocket lay out being slightly closer to the front keeps items more secure. Having a lighter liner actually allows these shorts to breath, but I was worried they might not be as secure (glad I was wrong about that). The inseam length actually does feel about an inch shorter, which isn't a big deal. The face fabric feels slightly stretchier and breathable. After about 40 miles this weekend in these shorts I am happy to say I am as always stoked on the nine trails shorts!

    Comfortable

      Nice short, the liner is supportive without getting in the way. The pockets are great with the zippered closures. Make sure you tighten up the knots on the cords attached to the zippers, they will pop off and disappear if you don’t.
