Product Description Item No.   10235571

The Patagonia Men's Wavefarer Board Short is a swim short for surfing, wakeboarding, or just hanging out pool-side all summer long. The Supplex nylon fabric has a durable water repellent finish and dries quickly after a dip in the water. They’re lightweight so they won’t weigh you down and provide 50+ UPF protection from the sun from your waist to the knee. The regular fit allows you to move comfortably without restriction. The fly has a mesh gusset and a single rubber button for closure, with a drawstring waist to keep the shorts on your hips where they belong. A single zipper side pocket secures your keys and wallet and is self-draining. The money will dry out eventually.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

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 If I could only pick one item to cover my privates for the rest of my life, this would be it. Ok, everyone knows Patagonia makes quality gear that lasts forever. I have had a pair of these shorts for 5 years now and they are still in great shape. I wore them for 12 days straight once on a river trip. The only reason I got another pair is that I am getting old and fat and it is easier to buy larger shorts than lose weight. Nice that they offer in-between sizes so I can go up one inch at a time as I pack on the pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trunks for your junk I am a sucker for quality gear that is stylish and durable. So, yeah, I'm a big fan of Patagonia's board shorts. Not only do they fit comfortably (i.e. no chafing), they show very little wear and the color has not faded after using them as my primary swimsuit for the past 3 years. If it weren't for the cool new patterns, there would be little reason to buy more than one pair. (Variety is the spice of life, am I right?)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome board shorts with lots of style From swimming along south beach in Miami to climbing waterfalls in Jamaica these shorts were a hit. Great fit and very comfy. Loved the quick dry for when we were done playing in the water but still having fun on the beach or in the shops. Looked good too, at least that's what the wife said and she never lies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Rad These shorts are super light weight and fast drying - great not only for getting wet in but also fantastic for backpacking. Durable like all Patagonia products, I expect to be using them until they fall off my body.
