Your professor has one rule: no board shorts in the classroom. But how can you resist when you live on a freaking island with mind-blowing surf just five minutes away? Lucky for you, Patagonia's got your back with the Men's Wavefarer 20in Walk Shorts. Made from the same quick-drying fabric as Patagonia's classic board shorts, the Wavefarer is designed with the style of everyday shorts, making it hard for your professor to call you out on breaking the rule. So as soon as class is done for the morning, hop on your bike and meet your buddies at the beach for a couple hours of surfing before you have to head back to campus to take that test you've been putting off.

Size Up

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 33
  • Height: 6'0"
  • Weight: 180lbs

Great fitting short but these run a little small. I normally wear a 32" waist but had to go with a 33" on this pair for the same fit. The only other thing I don't like about these shorts is the button fly instead of a zipper.

snug fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 34
  • Height: 5'10"
  • Weight: 196lbs

be prepared for snug fit. if you prefer a little room you might want to consider going up a size. other than this material is perfect for active use and does great when wet. short stops right above knee when standing.

Do it all summer shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 33
  • Height: 6'2"
  • Weight: 195lbs

These are a great do it all summer shorts. I recently purchased these shorts and this past weekend was the first time i had a chance to try them out. Wore them to brunch sat morn, wore them to watch a rugby match in the afternoon, went for a trail run sun morn to a lake where i swam in them. After the swim they dried quickly. As for the fit I got a 33 they fall at the knee (I'm 6'2) and are loose enough for me in the seat and thighs(I have bigger thighs).
