    Amphibious by design.

    The Patagonia Men's Stretch Wavefarer 20in Walk Short transitions from sea to skyline without skipping a beat. Chino styling handsomely disguises its coastal heritage on casual work days in the city. Hand and rear pockets offer functional storage for daily essentials, complete with mesh pocket bags for quick drainage after hitting the beach.

    It's made from a lightweight four-way stretch material, with a DWR finish rapidly accelerating drying once you leave the water. This quick-drying fabric allows you to hit the beach in the early morning, then transition to grabbing lunch downtown without dripping all over. Another summer-friendly feature, UPF 50+ sun protection shields you from scorching UV rays when you're hanging on the beach and commuting through the city.

    Best shorts I've owned in a while.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33

    I'm currently deployed to Bangkok and needed a light short that wasn't too tight or too baggy (I'm 40 and don't like today's skinny fit), that didn't need a belt, and could handle the humidity and sudden downpours we get in Thailand (these repel water). I have two pairs and they have been fantastic walking around the city and at the beach. Pockets are a good size and are mesh to let sand out. Other reviewer is right that drawstring is on the short side but it doesn't bother me as I don't want long strings bunching up. I'm 6'0 at 165lbs and the 33 fits perfect.

    Regressed

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 33

    I have last year's version of these shorts and they are great. Unfortunately Patagonia changed a few things on this year's version that I think are a regression in functionality. 3 issues were enough for me to return these.
    (1) The draw string is absurdly short...to the point that I'd have to tie a square knot in these to secure them.
    (2) The elastic key fob/lanyard is missing...so no way to take a surf /water key.
    (3) They switched from a button fly to a zipper fly...just not a fan.
    Admittedly these items may not be an issue for most folks who may just use these as casual shorts. However, I rely on these for casual attire, flat-water paddling and (as advertised) impromptu surf session. So they're a no-go unfortunately. Will look elsewhere brand wise for a hybrid short for this year.

    The good side to look its best...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33

    Fellows, the new age of shorts is here and now. IF you want a pair of shorts that one ups the money maker and puts your good side on another level, then these are the shorts for you. Your milkshake is gonna bring all the girls to the yard, and then some.

    Don't get me started on the the flexibility. I bend like a pretzel....and I ll tell you what these shorts kept up with my every move. Never even had to worry about losing a plum or two out the bottom.

    Hands. Down. 5. Stars.
