    Have it all.

    The Men's Wavefarer Stand-Up Short is the hybrid love-child of two of Patagonia's most beloved shorts—the Stand Up Shorts and Wavefarer Board Shorts. These shorts give you the best of both worlds with a quick-drying nylon fabric that's been treated with a DWR to decrease drying time. Built-in UPF 50+ sun protection lets you enjoy more waves, while a double fabric seat increases abrasion resistance for those times you're really getting after it.

    • Hybrid shorts for all-purpose summer wear
    • Quick-dry material won't leave you soaked after a dip
    • Self-draining pockets won't hold water
    • Security pocket stashes your keys
    • Fabric is bluesign approved
    • Item #PAT02CG

    Great do-it-all shorts for summer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    I've had the Patagonia Wavefarer Stand Up Shorts since early last summer and have plenty of time to put them through the wringer. Since they are made out of a durable boardshort material (Patagonia's "wavefarer" fabric), they are ready and willing to jump in the water at the drop of a hat. For me, the amphibious qualities are great, especially considering they look and wear like real shorts. They have deep pockets, belt loops to fit a wide belt like the Tech Web Belt, and an internal drawstring that is great when you're in the water.
    I'm a huge fan of the original Patagonia Stand Up shorts, and these are quite similar in terms of design/fit/pocketing. If you're looking for a pair of shorts you can put on and wear to brunch, then go for a hike and jump in the lake without changing shorts, I would highly recommend the Patagonia Wavefarer Stand Up shorts.

    Terrible fit

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

    These shorts have a terrible fit, however the absolute worst feature is a half/button fly that isn't described by Backcountry in the product specifications at all. I gave Backcountry a second chance when making this purchase and they failed again. That, coupled with the fact I have to pay to return this poorly described product can assure I will never use Backcountry again.
