On and off the water comfort.

Patagonia designed its Men's Guidewater II Shorts specifically for fishing, but that's not to say you can't wear them on the trail, on the beach, or in the backyard. Their quick-to-dry nylon fabric provides protection from UV rays, and their elastic waist makes them super comfortable whether you're lassoing a sipping brown trout, or just enjoying what the summer has to offer.

Wear em all the time

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium
  • Height: 5'9"
  • Weight: 155lbs

I have a 32-33in waist and i went with the medium. Super lightweight yet durable, comparable to the Quandary shorts. I use them for wading and they dry really quickly. Just like the Quandary you can wade in them all day and wear them to the bars afterwards. Great product from a responsible company. What more could you ask for?
