- Q & A
Usual Patagonia quality, poor sizing
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 2
I've been a consistent size 2 in Patagonia pants for a few years now. I even ordered last year's Island Hemp shorts in a 2, which actually started to feel small (probably change in me, not in the size). I confidently ordered a 2 for these shorts and found they were 1-2 size too large (hips 35.5"). Per other reviews, the waist gaps quite a bit, even with a normal fit around the thighs. The style is nice and functional, with great pockets and good quality fabrics--as usual with Patagonia.
Good shorts, bad sizing
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Cute shorts, substantial fabric with good stretch, good pockets. I fell between sizes, though, so had to return. 8 fit best in the butt and waist but the legs were weirdly tight. 10 fit well in the legs but the waist was too big - and it gapped in both sizes. I'm hoping the next version of these shorts will have a better cut.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size

These shorts are so rad, I need to get like 3 more pairs so I stop wearing them every day haha. Nice fit for me (usually a 4-5 in pants and I got a size 4 for these shorts) Fabric is a little stretchy which is perfect for all activities from work to hiking. The length is perfect for me and might be a little long for those with shorter legs but I am about 5'11'' with long legs and I definitely wouldn't want anything longer than this. So many people keep asking me what shorts these are because they're so rad! You should buy these because they rock, patagonia rocks and you rock.
Good Fit, Nice Stretch

I, for one, am super picky about shorts, but these fit the bill! Super stretchy and a nice, relaxed fit. The fabric is soft and comfortable, and the buffalo green is a nice addition to my mostly chromatic wardrobe. I think these shorts could easily be my summer go-to.
