A summer classic for a reason, the Patagonia Men's Baggies Shorts are at home in the water, on the trail, and everywhere in between. A DWR-coated nylon body lined with comfortable mesh dries quickly and breathes well, and the elastic waistband with an internal drawcord gives you a casual fit with the ability to tighten when the going gets a little more serious. Patagonia designers have integrated a snap back pocket to secure valuables when you get to bushwhacking.

  • Lightweight, durable board shorts that go way beyond the beach
  • Water-resistant, quick-drying nylon fabric won't slow you down
  • Adjustable drawstring at waist secures an exact fit
  • Mesh pockets stash small items and drain excess water

Shorter the Better

    I love these shorts! I wear the 5" and they are perfect. I do everything in them from climbing, running, and hiking to wearing them out downtown.

    Went short and I'm stoked!

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

    I've been a 7" baggies guy for many years, but this spring I decided to try the "short" version in the 5" inseam. I'm pleasantly surprised to say that they shorter version isn't too short - personally, I think they are great.

    Almost Perfect

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    My gripe with these is the pockets. They go all the way down to the end of the short. They fit a bit tight also. If the pockets were better, these would be a 5 star product.

    Quite Possibly the Best Shorts Ever Made

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS-5

    Is there anything these shorts can't do? No. No there's not. They can do anything. Trail running, long distance trekking, hot tub soaking. Beach weddings, casual Friday, regular weddings. The Baggie rules. I always opt for the 5in inseam and this time went with the Stone Blue. Color looks spot on and fit is exactly what I expected. There's even an elastic loop in the right hand pocket now for... I don't really know. Keys I guess? I wear these shorts enough that I'm sure I'll find a use for it.

    the all-terrain vehicle of shorts

      Super comfortable, lightweight, quick drying. These are great for hiking, swimming, running, or just cooling off on a hot day

      Great Everyday Shorts

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Medium

      I love using these shorts for everything between lounging in a comfortable chair to running up a mountain. They also dry out quickly and have nice pockets.

      One Short to Rule Them All

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium-5

      I do not know why i own any other shorts. climbing, hiking, swimming, running etc... the list of things you can do in baggies is pretty much endless, I even snowboard in them on closing day most years. Great shorts that are super versatile. I wish they sold some without the liner since i just end up cutting the liner out and wearing them like normal shorts/board shorts.

      The ATV of Shorts

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: M-5

      These things are amazing. First of all, I love how you can use these for any activity under the sun. They feel durable but not stiff or uncomfortable. You can use them as a swimsuit! They are quick drying and lightweight. The huge selection of colors and even inseam is a huge bonus. Great pair of shorts by Patagonia.

      Going to be my go

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Extra small

      I haven't used these shorts too much yet, but I'm loving the fit. Can't wait for a restock of 5 inch, good all around short.

      Dad’s favorite shorts!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      I have now gotten my dad a pair of these every year in a different color as he loves them so much. He uses it as a swimsuit or as walking shorts and prettty much doesn’t wear anything else in the summer. They fit true to size and are very durable


        Best backpacking short out there. Dries super fast.

        Awesome set of shorts!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These shorts really can do it all! From days floating the river to backpacking trips in the desert. These Patagonia Baggies became my go to shorts this summer for anything outdoors.

        Good material, comfy fit.

          All pockets seemed to hit the right depth and feels like a really versatile material. I haven't had the chance, but am betting that you could wear it over a huge variety of use cases.

          The shorts to end all shorts

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

          I bought these at the start of the 2018 summer and ended up getting them in several colorways because they were so great. The material is super durable, reasonably comfortable, and looks nice. They are pretty stylish I think, the length is good and the colorways are great. I expect to be wearing the pairs I bought for several years

          The shorts to end all shorts.

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

          These are my favorite shorts I've owned. I bought them in several colorways I liked them so much and just rotated through all of them for a whole summer. They're pretty stylish, with a really nice length and shape. The material is insanely durable, moderately comfortable, and looks great. I'm expecting to wear them a few more summers


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

          I have worn these almost daily since purchase. Most comfortable lounging and workout shorts. Beyond sweat wicking and stylish. Versatility is the name of the game here.

          Bring back the stretch.

          • Size Bought: Large

          These are definitely a classic that will never go out of style. You can seriously use these for anything super versatile and ready for any situation. I just wish Patagonia would bring back this model with the stretch fabric. The cut on these is not restricting or anything but the stretch model was the bee knees and added a little bit more comfort.

          Great shorts!

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

          I have three pairs of these bad boys and bought a pair to give my brother in law. They are great to wear during the summer months in the south. They don’t dry completely if you decide to wear them in the ocean but they do dry enough to make them a great hybrid short. It has a nifty lanyard inside one of the pockets you can hook your keys to in case you want to jump into a river but still get home. If you like short shorts don’t be afraid to get a size smaller.

          Want to love them, but only like them

            I really love the style and material of the Patagonia Baggies Shorts. I got them in a bright orange flower pattern that I think is awesome. I also love the enormous pockets. That makes me like them.

            On the downside, I don't love the fit. I find that they ride up awkwardly when running or climbing, and aren't as comfortable as I'd like. But I still wear them regularly, so yeah ... like but don't love.

            great swim trunks

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

            Patagonia has been making the baggies for as long as I can remember and for good reason. They fit great, look good and are simple. Big pockets. Comfortable. I wear these every time i'm close to water
