    The only shorts you'll need.

    You can bring a lot of gear on river rafting trips, but the only shorts you'll really want, or need, are the Patagonia Men's GI III Shorts. They're made from durable nylon, which is quick to dry, and treated with a DWR finish to repel moisture. The GI III also boasts UPF 50 sun protection to protect your gams from gamma rays. And, when your camp just happens to be near some irresistible boulders, the gusseted crotch, elastic waist, and integrated belt will make sussing out a few quick problems just a bit easier.

    Great shorts but baggy

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

    These are a great lightweight adventure short. They fit great but the legs are a little too baggy. The UPF 50 is nice for long days in the sun and they dry very quickly if they get wet.

    So far they are killer

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

    ***I am going to start this review off with the precursor that I have yet to do anything seriously active or in water with these shorts***

    I got these shorts to add to my arsenal of all around, do everything, adventuring shorts. They have awesome features such as a quick-dry material, enough pockets for the essentials, a gusseted crotch, draining pockets, an already-faded look, an integrated belt, and a super sturdy feeling button. They are the perfect length for my style and I don't see too much stretching going on.

    I am about 6', 155lbs, and my waist is 30 on a good day. I bought the size small and they are perfect for me.

    I could see these shorts being amazing for hiking, rafting, camping, climbing, boating, traveling, and drinking at the lake. There is no mesh liner so wearing some undies would be recommended (plus they have a zipper so commando could mean danger). Another note is that the tolerance for the button hole is actually so tight that I had trouble getting them buttoned initially. My guess is it'll get easier over time.

    So far so GREAT!

    These shorts really do it all

      I am 5'11 and weigh 180 with a waist size of around 33 and large fits perfect. What I really like about these is the adjustable belt that is sewn into the shorts. There are drainage holes in the pockets so these shorts can be used as swim trunks. The shorts dry very quickly after they get wet. They are very comfortable and very well designed. I would recommend these shorts to any adventurer out there. These are a true "GoTo" pair of shorts
