Long-lasting comfort.

When you’ve finally worn out your Patagonia Men’s Stand Up Shorts, grab a fresh pair and raise a glass to another ten years of durable comfort. It's tough to resist the durable, double-seat construction made from organic cotton canvas, and just the thought of a summer day hike or sunny jaunt up a granite trad climb without these shorts is a tough pill to swallow.

  • Comfortable shorts don't shy away from an adventure
  • Durable canvas fabric made from organic cotton
  • Reinforced seat for enhanced abrasion resistance

  • Size Bought: 38x5

I'm 5' 7" with some big ole legs. These shorts are awesome. I love a short inseam as it helps with movement on the trail. Some of my shorts that I have enjoyed over the years were just a bit too long, but these are perfect with the 5 inch inseam. I'd advise going up by 1 inch on the waste. I'll be purging many of my shorts and sticking with these until I die, or someone makes something better....I'll probably die first. I agree with another review on the velcro. Take a seam ripper and nix it. The back pockets are deep and if you are really worried about getting pick-pocketed, leave the velcro on the smaller rear pocket.

Great shorts with one flaw

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 32

Just got these so can't speak to their durability but I wanted to share a few first impressions.
Bought them because I love what patagonia does and also have trouble finding a 5" inseam short, so it's a win win. The material is heavy and they are apparently a very solid short. Deep front and back pockets, the back ones are shaped somewhat strangely but it's no biggie. The way they're cut is kind of weird, pretty big around the thighs (similar to baggies) but I like it, they fit me well.
The flaw here is that there's a velcro closure on each of the three back pockets. It's completely unnecessary and feels/sounds terrible every time you reach into one. If anything there should be a button like a normal adult pair of pants. It's beyond me how this seemed reasonable to whoever designed them. I took a seam ripper and removed all of it and am now perfectly happy.

Greatest. Shorts. Ever.

Get these shorts. Look great. Feel awesome. Order two waist sizes up though for example if you normally wear a 32 get a 34

Thank you for the awesome feedback, we appreciate the review!

Runs slightly small

Patagonia once again lives up to their reputation as having really solid casual shorts that can be used in many different settings. Unfortunately, I thought I was good enough to get away with have a the 34x5, but I was mistaken. These shorts waists run a little too tight, and I even tried on a pair of 35's and still they were too tight. Normally I am a size 34 waist, but these were suffocating me. Once I have a size 36, I will report back and tell you all what I think.

Also, just my personal opinion, but I think 5 inch inseam is just too short, and recommend a 7inch instead.

best shorts ever

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34

I must have worn about a dozen pairs of these over the years. During the summer I practically live in them. They are tough and can take a beating. Over the years Patagonia has improved the fabric for the pockets. In older versions my keys always destroyed the pockets first. Now they seem to last forever and after two/three years the entire pair of shorts pretty much falls apart to be given a decent burial.
Some folks claim they got smaller over time. I cannot confirm that. I've worn 34 waist for all my pants and shorts since high-school and while they are sometimes a bit tighter, sometimes a lit wider, that has nothing to do with the pants/shorts. :-) I'd say they fit like every other of my pants / shorts.

Best shorts ever, run 1 size small

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 34

Wore these every single day on a month-long trip to europe. They are incredibly comfortable. I wore them hiking, walking around cities, and biking. I dont wear any other of my shorts now.
These definitely run 1 size small. I am a 33 waist, and a 34 fits nicely.

Eh...

I got these for my boyfriend and they were nothing like what he thought they would be. They are VERY short, but granted he's tall and the picture does show they are on the shorter side... His other issue were the back pockets, they look like front pockets.. It looks goofy .. We returned all three colors.. Patagonia is probably just not his style.

Just what I wanted

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

Was looking for some shorts that were actually short, but still rugged enough to use on the trail and when doing work around the property.

When your thighs are in suit pants all week, they want to breathe on the weekends. These are really great. Maybe a little stiffer than I expected, but that goes with being rugged.

One word of warning, the inseam is short.

So, if you wear boxers or are a free baller--and you have cajones grande--those cajones are likely to pop out the leg from time to time.

Bomb Proof Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 40

I’ve owned four pairs of these shorts and absolutely love them. Great organic cotton canvas. I recently had to purchase another size and will agree with others that they run one size too small (the waist specifically). Great shorts, love them - highly recommend them!

Maybe just not for him?

    I got these pants for my boyfriend assuming they would fit the same as his 5 in baggies but the fit just seemed off. The waist was pretty tight but the width of the legs seemed way to wide? Maybe it is just his body shape. The quality of the short obviously seems to be there but they just didn't work out for him.

    I have multiple other Patagonia shorts with a 32 waist, but this model runs small. If you buy them, size up.

    2018 Stand Up shorts

      I bought my first pair in 2017 and loved how durable and short they were. The thighs are a lot wider than normal shorts, but I like the range of movement it allows since my thighs are more athletic. I decided to get a second pair on sale and the shorts this year do fit a little more snug. The material seems slightly thinner too, but it still feels durable. The thigh opening isn’t as big either and looks more like normal shorts. I give it 4 stars because I like the new smaller thigh opening, but don’t appreciate the tighter fit.

      My Go-To Shorts

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

      Patagonia's stand up shorts are my all-time favorites. The fabric is comfortable, but tough and durable. I own these shorts in several colors and have been wearing them for decades. After years of use, it was finally time to get some new ones! Only one small disappointment – the Forge Gray color seems to fade easily. The Khaki colors hold their color just fine.

      The BEST!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32

      I own more than 6 of these in different colors, I use them in hot days while on walks, hikes or a farmers market visit. I love them, they are strong enough to sit on dirt and wood or cement benches and such and they don't get damage at all

      Great shorts

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: Runs small

      I got these for my dad and he really likes them. They do run small - we had to return the first pair and order a size up. He says he especially likes the length and that they are very comfortable.

      Runs very small

        Order one or two sizes up!

        He Thinks they're too loose and wide

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

        Bought this as a gift for my friend because I thought they looked really cool and seemed like very sturdy pants. I thought they would be great for him for outdoor activities like climbing because they were a bit looser on the legs. However, this was actually the downfall for him because he thought they were too airy and open for climbing. He is pretty slim though which could contribute to the issue. He did have to size up.

        Way Too Small!

        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: 31

        I based my size choice on other shorts purchase on this sight. I bumped up one size based on the feedback I saw on size and it was not enough. I own Patagonia baggies small and they fit great. Most other shorts size 30 waist fir great. 31s are usually baggie. I can’t button the stand up shorts. I owned this short 30 years ago and wore them to sherds. They were my favorites. Comfortable, durable and versatile allowing easy movement. I don’t know why the size is such an issue. I’m very disappointed.

        Weird Cut

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: 34x7

        I had a bad feeling when I ordered these. I have slim thighs to start so I am always swimming in shorts, but these things were flared out like a skirt. There must have been 10 inches of additional fabric on each leg. If Jncos made shorts this would be the pattern they follow. I liked the length but couldn't get around the excess space in the leg.

        • Size Bought: 30x5

        I snagged 2 pairs of these at the beginning of summer and have loved them. I debated between the 7 and 5in inseam and went with the bold 5 in. They fit me better and show off these wonderful legs my Momma gave me.
