Size Purchased: Medium

First, I am so glad I bought two pairs of these shorts. Love the colors and patterns and wish I got more. However, after knowing Patagonia pants can sometimes run small, I read multiple reviews to see how I should size. I decided to go with a Medium, which is my normal size based on reviews saying how baggie they were. The size chart said a medium was for size 8 & 10 - I wear a size 8, so figured even if I went up a size to a 10, that would still be a medium. Wrong. Technically, they fit. I can get them up and around my butt and the legs are a little loose, but don’t think they will remain comfortable for hours of hiking. The waistband cinches so tightly, it creates muffin top, which who wants to worry about when you’re out in the woods. I am exchanging for a large (which thankfully, Back Country was so awesome about and handled quickly!)
