The Patagonia Men's Cotton Minimalist Wavefarer Board Short is a swim suit for spending the summer in the water. Whether you're a fan of the pool or spend your days at the beach, the retro look of the Cotton Minimalist Wavefarer fits right in. The blend of organic cotton and nylon creates a soft feel that dries quickly. A durable water repellent finish helps bead water up off the surface of the fabric as well. The seventeen inch outseam is a tad shorter than the original Wavefarer board short, so everyone can enjoy your lovely knees. Seam-free at the inner thigh prevents chafing while the single button closure with drawstring ensures they stay up when diving into the water. A single back pocket closes with a flap and single button, an attached key clip inside provides a little extra security.

Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. It's cute to think of a fabric as being afraid of water. Now if only they could make a bearphobic coating. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Men's Fit Guide Details & Info

Patagonia's measurements refer to body size and NOT garment dimensions. Sorry for yelling about it.

Each Patagonia product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, and below are their generalized four fit descriptions, and details about each fit. The Patagonia fit for each style can be found in the product description features or specifications.

FORMFITTING
• Conforms to the body's contours.

SLIM FIT
• Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.

REGULAR FIT
• Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers. Men's regular fit pants have a slimmer fit through that thigh, lower leg, and cuff.

RELAXED FIT
• Drapes loosely on the body. Men's relaxed fit pants have a bit of extra room through the hip, thigh, lower, and cuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I look awesome in these shorts I ordered patagonia board shorts last year and loved them, but they were tighter in the thighs and a little longer. These are perfect - a little roomier and the small slits on the side really help when I sit down since they don't taper at the bottom. Fit true to size and great vintage colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Board Shorts Patagonia EVER Made I have been buying Patagonia board shorts for the better part of 12 years (still own 5 pairs). These are by far the best shorts they have ever made!

Do these shorts have netting inside?

Asked by: dzbeitz
Hey dzbeitz, The Patagonia Men's Cotton Minimalist Wavefarer Board Short does have netting inside. Patagonia refers to that netting as a functional mesh gasket that drains easily. I hope that this helps.
