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 4 out of 5 by from Up to the task A really good pair of board short: tough and comfortable. I wear these to the beach a lot and have put them through their paces wearing for 60 days in Baja while sailing and sea kayaking. Comfortable to wear around town as well and they have great styles every year. My only complaint from wearing these in the water and to is after they're wet they start loosening and riding up more then I'd like but maybe I should just go a little smaller on the sizing. Also I eventually ripped out the fly buttons thinking I could get them on and off without undoing them so watch out, but sewing another one has worked just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd like to buy a vowel.... These board shorts are possibly the best that I have ever had the privilege of owning. I got these shorts in the Buy A Vowel Ultramarine. They have a zip pocket on the right side that is fairly large that I use to keep my phone and wallet in. There is also a key loop in the pocket for leashing your lock pickers. There is a single button tie closure which I prefer over other closures. The length is good and hangs to the middle of my knee caps. There 100% nylon and they feel like they would dry out pretty fast on a sunny day. The people up here in Fairbanks Alaska had really weird looks on their faces when I strolled by in these bad boys. Overall a great pair for anywhere highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect men's boardshort, the girlfriends will approve! SO, I gave these shorts to my boyfriend for his birthday. Let me tell you, he is one picky guy. He appreciates quality products that do their job and have a classic style. These shorts do just that. He also is particular about the length of board shorts and fit around the leg. "Boardshorts can be too long or too short or too bulky." These rules make it hard for a lady to give gifts! But I found a winner with these. They have enough give to appropriately run and play catch on the beach while also being modest. And the cute at the waist is pretty sexy. pick these, in any color. They are great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Boardshorts Ever Now, while these don't dry as quick as others—the fit and detailing are impeccable. I'm tired of velcro fastened flies on boardshorts that tear up the drawstrings after two wears. These on the other hand have very thoughtful features—low forward seams on the inner thigh, button fly closure, great positioned pocket, and varying lengths to satisfy any style. The fabric is substantial and has great hand and the fit is wonderful with anatomical curvature at the waistband.,,,,I use them for surfing and skimboarding and I couldn't be any happier witht hem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best board shorts money can buy These days it's hard to find a set of boardshorts that actually fit, aren't too baggy, and allow for a nice range of motion. The Wavefarer shorts are all of that and more. They dry extremely quickly, especially when the DWR finish is new, and they fit pretty well. They will expand a bit when wet or if they've been worn for awhile (like a pair of jeans), but a wash should bring them back down to size. Very solidly built and they should last awhile!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't take them off! Great for hiking, did the Kalalau trail in these with no problems. Wore these for everything for three weeks in Kauai. From sneaking into the resorts to sleeping in a cave, these will not fail you. The pocket is big enough to load in a cell phone and a wallet with some room to spare. These dry in about 8 minutes. Highly recommend for dirty hippies.,,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Muy Durable! Board shorts that actually look good on an older guy! The Glowing Ember really Orange! Order one size smaller and they will fit great! Fabric is durable and wears well with constant sand dives. Dries quickly. The zip pocket is great for your stuff so you don't lose it in the ocean. Better than Velco!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boardshorts-Patagonia quality! I have three pairs of these board shorts and they are really sweet. The fit is very comfortable, they dry really fast, the pocket is very handy, and there are many fabric choices which change every year. These shorts have been more durable than many other brands like quicksilver and they dont fade.
