    Patagonia is the go to

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    As with all other Patagonia products, I am very impressed with the quality of this product. Very soft fabric, strong stitching, great fit.

    super stoked

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

    im super stoked on these shorts. Really nice and great fit. Didn't realize they had a liner in them when I bought them but honestly the liner is really nice.

    Best Liner - Great Pocket Zips

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: 29
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    These are great shorts for hitting the trail. The liner is super supportive, and the pocket zips are tough and smart design-wise.

    Staple shorts in my everyday workout bag

      I pack a medium black hole cube in my work bag for mid-day workouts. Since first trying these on these are now my go to shorts in that bag. They’re perfect for almost any activity I can throw at them from a quick run thru the trails to hitting the company gym.

      I was sceptical about the liner after reading reviews and I don’t know what the previous liner was like, but these are great. I’ve never had a liner with legs before, but these feel snug and comfortable.

      I love that every pocket has a zipper so my phone isn’t taking its typically customary dive to the floor while sitting down on a gym bench.

      Perfect length. I ditched the attempts at orchestrating packing for any particular day - shorter short for runs, longer for climbing day or gym - these work for anything.

      Best Shorts of All Time

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 185lbs

      Why do these shorts cost so much? Because they’re worth every penny. After 20 years of running and dozens of shorts, I found the pinnacle (of shorts at least). Great liner, supportive but not too tight. The shorts breath well and they never bunch up on hot humid days. Mile 10 is as comfortable as mile 1 - no chafing or uncomfortable seams. Great length. If you are looking for the perfect jogging shorts, don’t let the price scare you.

      Comfortable

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      These are very comfortable shorts! They have a built in underwear style to them that I really enjoy. Very breatheable.

      The liner, man, the liner.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      If you're not wearing shorts with built in liners, what are you doing with your life? These are incredibly comfortable, durable and look great. Will buy again!

      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

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 145lbs

      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

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 140lbs

      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!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      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.
