    Strider Pro 7in Shorts

    Who wears short shorts? Not you, so much. Offering a slightly longer cut than their 5-inch companions, the Patagonia Stride Pro 7in Shorts provide added coverage without sacrificing their airy feel and wicking performance as you run. The body of the short is made with a lightweight recycled polyester ripstop fabric that wicks moisture and offers breathable comfort on your warm-weather runs, even giving you an added dose of cooling airflow with a slight split at the leg ends. You'll have all the storage you need on longer, high-mileage runs with four open waistline pockets that stash energy gels and packable weather shells easily thanks to their stretchy construction. There's also a zippered security pocket in the back that keeps keys and IDs from falling out in the middle of a ten mile out-and-back on the trail. Plus, these shorts have a comfortable, moisture-wicking liner that gives you constant support and won't gather odor after even the most grueling runs and workouts.

    • Lightweight running shorts for any and all of your workouts
    • Polyester ripstop fabric wicks moisture and lets you move freely
    • Inner lining offers support and wicking performance while you run
    • Four stretch pockets give you storage for energy gels and snacks
    • Zippered security pockets keeps keys and cards safe on the trail
    • Adjustable drawcord waistband ensures a snug and comfortable fit
    • Reflective elements keep you visible on low-light sunset runs
    • Item #PAT02TJ

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Very comfortable and light for run.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I am just a casual jogger. My other runner shorts are air force PT gears for my reference. This one has multiple useful pockets that kept things in place. My LG V30 phone fit in the back or side pockets.

    consider upsizing

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: M
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 162lbs

    First of all, I am a huge fan of Patagonia's products. To to be fully unsatisfied by one of their items was a bit of a surprise. I have not tried the previous version of these shorts with the longer liners, but as others have said, the brief style liner in this version is uncomfortable and in my opinion, too small. I am 5'9

    Step Backward

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 205lbs

    The previous version of these shorts were amazing and I hiked the entire PCT in them. The new version has a brief liner not boxer brief and feels like cheaper material. Sadly, will be returning and looking for something else for next thru hike.

    Please go back to previous years design

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

    much preferred the old boxer brief liner vs brief liner and the old materials in liner, short and especially the side pockets. Old material in pockets allowed you to put much more in there.

    Loved them

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    Shorts are great! Love all the pockets. You can't put to many heavy items or shorts will bounce a lot. But over all a great pair of running shorts.

    They ruined the liner

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

    The liner on these (2019) are not like previous years. Instead of the spandex-ish like boxer briefs liner they now have an egg basket style brief with hard elastic edges. Ruined the best shorts ever made

    VERY NICE SHORTS

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 168lbs

    Very nice short for trail running ¡¡,, i would love it in 6" and with a little bit of spandex ( maybe 5%),, but they performance great ¡,,and i love the several performance pockets arrownd the waist,,,,perfect desing and quality like patagonia uses to.

    so light you feel naked

    really nice shorts. super light and breathable. bought a second pair however these ones just have a brief in them were as the older pair had a short in them. keep that in mind.

    Best Running Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    These are the best running shorts I have worn (compared to Nike, UA, Arc'teryx, etc.). They have a snug fit but are breathable and stretchy. I like the pockets but they are nothing to write home about--I don't think expectations should be high with pockets on running shorts. I like that they have slimmer legs where as some running shorts turn into parachutes.

    Best long run shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    Absolutely the best long run shorts. The pockets are great for gels or snacks or wallet - and you will forget they are even there. The compression built ins are amazing too. My favorite shorts now.

    Amazing

    • Size Bought: M
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 163lbs

    This short is amazing! The liner is long, boxer-like and it feels extremely comfortable. the fabric breathes perfectly and makes running on hot weather easier. It runs a tad small, so if you're on the big side I'll recommend a size up.

    Still running ...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I own several pairs of past model strider pro's (5 inch and 9 inch) and these provide all of the same features at a different length option. I have worn them recently on day hikes and trail runs in weather conditions that ran the gamut and on terrain that included some rocky scrambles and dense bushwacks and they show no wear and tear despite being snagged a few times. The stash pockets are big enough for trail food and light accessories. I carried 3 cliff bars, a houdini and an iphone without feeling like the shorts were too weighed down. They resist water and dry quickly if they do become soaked (the liner takes longer to dry). One change from other models is these have a bike short type liner. I typically cut out the liner and wear my own compression undergarment, but i have been wearing these with the built in liner and I have not experienced any chaffing. My only complaint would be the liner material is a bit too thick for my preference and makes the shorts feel hotter. They fit true to size, if a bit roomier than other versions.

    Best shorts I own

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I own two pairs of these shorts. I find them very comfortable and I love the available storage. The two larger stash pockets will fit my MSR trailshot so for most runs with available water along the way I don't need to bring a bottle which is nice. I was able to fit 5 12oz beers in the shorts which is a bonus. I have not had any problems with the draw cord it stays tight and needs to be non elastic or the shorts wouldn't work. i find the boxer type liner more comfortable than my shorts with a regular liner. One thing to note is they do shrink a bit with washing.

    Great short

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 205lbs

    I really like these. The liner makes them great for working out, whether running, using the elliptical or exercise bike in the gym, hiking it whatever. Multiple clever pockets. My new favorite.

    Draw string.....

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    Love these shorts I have a couple pair both with long liner and standard "brief" style

    Pros:
    Pockets that work and don't bounce things
    Rear pocket holds IPHONE 6(s) in waterproof case
    liner is breathable (both versions)
    Colors are great
    very light

    Cons
    Drawstring on this years (2017?) are thinner and appear to be smaller than my previous years (2015?) not sure the reason, just dont like the "newer" string/drawcord.
    COST- HOLY COW, I can only afford on clearance or discount ( thank you BACKCOUNTRY) I keep myself plugged in to the e-flyers/product updates.


    Different liner

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M
    • Height: 6'2"

    Purchased these for my husband, thinking they would be similar to his previous pair of Patagonia Strider shorts. However, the liner in this pair is more like bike shorts and he finds this uncomfortable. Apparently this is now true of all styles of Patagonia running shorts. It may work for others, but he prefers the old liner style.
