Trust us, they'll go everywhere with you.

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

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

    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

    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

    Comfortable

    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!

    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

      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

      Great All Around Shorts

        I wear these for every occasion during the summer. Swimming, working around the house, and even to work sometimes. Love that they have pockets and that they come in all different sorts of colors and patterns.

        nice color

          I could buy reasonable price because of sale terms and the color is great as we can see the monitor

          Great shorts that are super versatile. They work great in the water but I also like them for hiking and wear them in the garden. Lots of color and size options. Find one that you like and try a pair.

          Summer Staple

          • Size Bought: Small

          These have been around forever for a very good reason. I can't believe it took me this long to get on the bandwagon. Light, comfortable, and quick drying, great for swimming, but also great for hiking, hanging around the house, or anything in between! 2 inseam length choices and tons of awesome colors with something for everyone!

          Bought as a Gift

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

          I bought these shorts as a gift for my brother and he loves them! He especially liked the Solar Paradise colorway. He wears them swimming, camping, rafting, grocery hsopping, pretty much anywhere and everywhere! 10/10 would reccommend!

          Best short out there!

          I have 4 pairs of these and will probably get more in due time. I love the 5" inseam.. really shows my legs off! They are so light and comfortable it's hard to wear anything else. I wish they made a pant version that I could wear in the winter......Hahahaha

          They do! Baggie Pant, check it out

          Please redesign the pockets!

          I had high hopes after ordering my first pair of Patagonia Baggies Longs shorts (7"). The relaxed fit was just as I expected, the color was great, and the material feels really durable. However just as so many others say in their reviews, the pockets are terrible. They are way too deep and go all the way to the bottom hem of the shorts. It's really uncomfortable to keep anything in the two front pockets as it will flop around and smack your thigh as you walk. As far as I'm concerned, the front pockets are essentially useless. If the shorts had normal pockets, I'd be ordering a couple more pairs in different colors But because of them, this will be a one-and-done for me unless Patagonia takes all of these reviews into account and makes a redesign. Please please change the pockets!

          Bought these for my brother and he's obsessed. It's his first pair and he wears them almost every day. They're super versatile - you can work out in them, jump in the river, and even toss a polo on for the evening. They seem a little crunchy when you first get them but after a few washes/dips in the river they're broken in and very comfortable. He's definitely hooked and will be needing many more colors.

          I've put these shorts through a lot. They've survived a motorcycle crash, jungle trekking, and a whole lot of wear and tear, and they've come out the other side looking great. They're my favorite shorts to wear anytime I go outside or travel.

          Shorter the Better

          These are my main summer anything outdoor short. Swim. Hike. Roll in dirt. THA BEST

          Icon

          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: Large - 5in

          Not much as changed over the years for these iconic shorts, but why fix it if it isn't broken?
          I don't like the deep pockets as much, but can't argue with the price and versatility. I've used these as my go to lounge, hiking, and water shorts over the summer.

          I got a few pair for my husband and he loves them. They are definitely baggie but I love that they come in different lengths. It's hard to find shorts for my husband that are above the knee.
