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.

• Conforms to the body's contours.

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

• 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.

• 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 Awesome shorts in and out of water Have several pairs of these shorts and the are incredibly comfortable and versatile. Initially wore them mostly in the water but started doing Crossfit workouts about a year ago and quickly took a disliking to regular gym shorts and thought I'd give these stretch board shorts a try. They instantly became my go-to for any kind of workout and even running. Just wear boxer briefs underneath and I am set for running, jumping, lifts, inversions, etc. Just the right amount of stretch, with a slim but not too tight fit. Look like regular boardshorts but the stretch increases mobility for surfing and doing things like squats or box jumps in the gym. Came here to pick up a new color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome board short. Good basic item to own I have this board short and really liked it. The waste was a little higher than I initially liked, but for someone actually looking to use this surfing, that is probably the desired fit. The material and stretch are supremely comfortable. This was my favorite board short...until I bought the Patagonia Stretch Houdini board short, which is just out of this world (but also standardly priced out this world...I just got lucky to grab that on sale). This really is a fantastic piece of swimwear and seems to be very high quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A neat pair of bathing trunks I've never owned a pair of fashionable bathing trunks- especially the kind that tie in the front. It is a bit of an odd transition from the other pull- up kind, but I have adapted. I really like the zipper on the side for keys or coins. I got the black edition and really like it. The Patagonia logo is murdered out. I use my pair mostly for going in the hot tub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, simple short. Got this pair of board shorts along with some other ones, including the non-stretch version of this, and this is the only pair I kept. The stretch allows for more comfortable seating and moving. Material is same as stretch baggies, which is a plus. I'll be going to beach and to yoga in these babies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A high quality product Very soft tissue, the colours are just exceptionnal and in my opinion Patagonia Board Short are the best. Size match the description. I just bought it so I have to test the durability.... I'll write another review in a couple of months.,,,,Still, I think buying another colours..... so much I loved it !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft fabric, stylish as well Finally ditched my old Hawaiian print swimsuit for this fancy-looking pair of board shorts, and I'm glad I did. The suit is a) thin b) smooth c) stretchy d) durable. Also: the pockets are nice, and the tie on the front keeps things under control without being too bulky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb (a word that means really good) pair of board shorts These shorts are true to size and stretch as advertised so as not to constrict your movement while doing whatever it is you are doing while wearing them. As an added bonus that's (not) exclusive to Patagonia board shorts, they don't remotely resemble a banana hammock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit! I really like these shorts. Super light weight and dry pretty quickly. I didn't know that they didn't come with a liner like all the other bathing suits I've worn, but I kind of like that now. My only complaints is that single fly button is in an awkward spot.
