"Highly recommended all purpose short especially in rainy conditions."
I purchased these Patagonia shorts for a trip to Disney World. It was a very muggy, rainy week at WDW. The shorts were cool when the sun was out, and were pretty water resistant during the frequent rainstorms. I was impressed with how quick they dried after a rain shower (or water ride) compared to a cotton type fabric. The zipped pockets front and back were also a plus because there was no danger of losing my wallet or cellphone on the various rides. I would highly recommend the shorts especially if you are expecting wet or rainy conditions.
