very nice hiking shorts~ just enough length in the leg without being restricting when climbing, durable fabric & deep back pockets. Size 0 was j Just a little too big in the waist, but not a deal breaker

Patagonia stand up short

  • Size Bought: 2

I’ve had a bit of a problem finding a Patagonia short to fit me. This one is perfect. Has a touch of stretch , long enough in the rise for a 5’8’ person and sits slightly below waistline.

Too big

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 0

I've tried a few sizes in a few different types of patagonia shorts, including the Stand Ups. Patagonia may not be the right brand for me since everything is over sized. Im normally a small or extra small (size 2) and their zeros don't even fit me. My advice is to size down since their clothes run large.

Solid. As Usual.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a solid pair o shorts from Patagonia that will last you from years to come.
The fabric was honestly a bit thicker than expected, but it's comfy to wear and it's very durable. This I know from hiking around and camping in them all summer.

The best part about these shorts is the length.
It's a nice compromise between:

"Hi. I'm not a teen with cheeks aglow"


"Hi. I'm a mom. Need a snack?"

It's Goldilocks style juuuuuuust right. Not too long, nor too short. Perfect for cruising to the coffee shop on my bike, hiking, or an evening concert. Slap a fresh belt on there and add cute sandals and you're styling.
Pocket size is rather generous for a women's style as well, which I know all ladies can appreciate.

Fit is true to size and comfy as can be.
