    Leave the competition in the dust with the soft, stretchy, and moisture-wicking comfort of the Patagonia Women's Nine Trails Shorts. Bluesign-approved, the Nine Trails Shorts ensure the highest levels of overall sustainability through environmentally friendly production processes. Four-way stretch fabric conforms to your every move for unencumbered flexibility when you're blasting down your favorite stretch of dirt, gravel, or asphalt. The DWR treatment sheds outside moisture from dampening these shorts, should you encounter passing showers or run past dewy vegetation.

    The brief-style liner provides extra support, keeping these shorts from slouching during fast-paced movement. Microdenier polyester mesh lining keeps perspiration build-up to a minimum. Polygiene odor control provides freshness, even after sweaty summer runs and long-distance efforts. The flat-knit waistband prevents irritation while tightly securing these shorts with its drawstring tie. Other run-friendly features include one-inch side scoops, a reflective logo, as well as a zippered rear pocket with key loop.

    Love the length and colors

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    These shorts would be perfect if they were available in my size. Many of the reviews said the shorts ran small and to order up. I wouldn't agree with that review. I am a medium and ordered a large thinking they would fit due to some of the reviews. I ended up returning the shorts because they barely stayed up over my hips. I would order a medium next time.

    I could wear these all day every day

    My only complaint is that they tend to run a little small. The smalls are just barely too small but the mediums are too big. Besides that these shorts are awesome! The liner stays in place and the material is on point! I love taking these on weekend camping trips or trail run weekends because they dry so quickly. I recently went on a two week vacation in California and we stayed at camp spots multiple nights and I rinsed them off in the showers or the creek and they were dry the next morning. The waist band is also fantastic. No chaffing, super comfortable and it stays in place. You gotta try out these shorts no matter what your summer plans are, running, hiking, camping or just hanging out in the heat.

    This is my second pair of Nine Trails. Absolutely my favorite running shorts. The relaxed waist band makes these so comfortable - I definitely recommend!

    New favorite running shorts

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Height: 5'5"

    I originally ordered and returned the Strider shorts, since I found them to be cut on the small side.

    I realized when returning the Striders that the Nine Trails shorts were more of what I was looking for: better coverage 4" vs 3.25" inseam and a zippered pocket!

    Since the Strider shorts were snug, I sized up to a large in the 9 Trails (I am typically a medium, size 8)--the waist is a little big, but I like having extra room through the thighs.

    My favorite running short

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 138lbs

    These are the perfect length! My booty is covered but the short isn't too long either. I wear between a size 4 - 6 and tried on the size small in the store. It fit but was in the smaller side, so I ordered a medium instead. I like my running shorts to have some room to bust a move. It is perfect! I want more!!!

    Not for me

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    These shorts are too low rise for me to run in. If shorts don't come up over my hip bones, they are not going to stay on when I start running! I guess they'd be ok for casual wear, but I needed running shorts. I ended up with Marmot Circuit shorts, which worked much better for me.
