Quick-drying freedom.

The Patagonia Men's Stretch Wavefarer 17in Volley Short is designed with a stretchy, quick-drying fabric that's ideal for cooling off at the lake and lounging on coastal vacations. Its unlined design aides in its ability to dry quickly, as does the moisture-shedding DWR finish.

The fabric's UPF 50+ rating ensures full protection from scorching UV rays on the brightest days of the year when the sun scorches overhead. And because Patagonia is dedicated to improving worker's wages and reducing the environmental impact of their garments, the fabric is Bluesign approved and the stitching is Fair Trade Certified.

Nice, but run Small

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

Very nice but way too tight in the waist and legs! Gave them to my nephew

Good shorts!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: Medium

Loved the stretchy material, very comfortable. Returned the shorts because they were too tight, the waist fits perfect but they're too tight around the rear, should have ordered a large.

These shorts Rock!

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

I have baggies, Mandukas, Prana Mojos, Etc, but these are hands down my favorite of any of them! Just a super classic style with a stretchy material that I really dig. The inseam is a perfect length at a few inches above the knee. I think these are just as at home in the Yoga studio, as they are on the river. Bought them in three colors and plan to wear these bad boys for many Summers to come. The fit is solid and true to size. Good job Patagonia!
