Anywhere watery.

Whether you're casting for bonefish in the Bahamas or jet-setting to exotic beaches off the coast of Thailand, the Patagonia Men's Sandy Cay 8in Shorts are just the ticket to easy-wearing bliss in balmy conditions. Lightweight enough for warm-weather comfort, yet tough enough to withstand serious use and abuse, the nylon taslan strikes an ideal balance between airy-cool comfort and durability.

Since nylon resists wrinkles, these shorts are a great choice for extended travel, where regular changing is often a luxury. Plus, its UPF 50+ rating ensures proper protection from the searing-hot sun when you're casting a line or kicking back on the beach. Moreover, there's plenty of storage space including: mesh-lined hand pockets for quick drainage, a zippered utility pocket, and drop-in thigh pocket.

  • Light shorts for tropical travels or fly fishing
  • Quick-drying taslan fabric offers 50+ UPF sun protection
  • Elastic back assures a secure fit

Awesome shorts

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

True to size, perfect length not too short not too long. From the skiff to the pool to dinner.

Cannot Find a Size to Fit

  • Size Bought: medium and Large

Ordered the Grey in Medium - nice color but too small. I'm 5'11 and 165lbs and found the medium waist a little small but more of a concern was how restrictive they were in the crotch. Sent them back and ordered the large - just too big!! I've been a Patagonia fan for a long time but their sizing has changed. I will be very selective ordering any of their shorts or pants from now on. Someone needs to have them get some regular guys in their design department.
