I haven't worn boyshorts since 8th grade or so. Gave them a try, love the material and the cut. Soft, dry quickly, really cute. I was worried about them riding or rolling up due to my pear-shaped lower half, but they stay in place nicely, and are even quite flattering. Looking forward to summer, after reading reviews that mention these doubling as impromptu swimsuits. Between camping and spontaneous dips, I think they'll see tons of use.
I solely bring these on long trips. They are great for travelling because they can easily become a swimsuit with a bra without looking too much like a bra and pair of underwear. Plus they give just a little more coverage so I don't mind drunkenly stumbling to the bathroom in these when I am at a hostel, or sleeping in them for that matter. They can ride up, but the fabric is so light that you won't even notice.
These are my go-to workout undies. The material is light and breathes well, they're super comfortable (including under jeans, when I go straight from work/life to the gym), and they don't ride up or shift uncomfortably. They stay put -- when I'm bouldering, when I'm running, and all the way from half moon pose to shavasana. Bonus? They wash really easily and are really high quality. Buy 'em!
These boy shorts are so cute and comfortable - I love them! They don't ride up at all, either, which is great. They are very durable, and so one pair will last you a long time. They dry quickly, and don't stretch out or shrink in the laundry, either.
Supersoft material, and a cutesy little print to boot! I like the flattering low rise fit. And it's worth the price for a pair of underwear that DOESN'T RIDE UP/DOWN/AROUND! It controls moisture so you don't have to worry if you sweat too much. Great job Patagonia.
I love these and wear them as a perfect base layer under running shorts for hiking, under jeans for chilly days, and alone for hitting the sauna/steam room at the gym. The fabric is very stretchy and is very flattering. These destroy the similar version made by Under Armour , as the fabric quality is way better and they don't ride up, roll, or constrict. Love 'em!
"Totally worth it!! Favorite pair of underwear EVER."
I bought a size smaller than I normally would and they fit AWESOME. NO wedgies!! The fabric is so incredibly comfortable and they don't bunch at all. I'm going to definitely buy a few more pairs. I've been looking for a great pair of active underwear and boyyyyy is this it!! TWO THUMBS UP!!!!!!!!!!!!
Based on the size chart, I ordered a Medium, but it turns out I should have ordered a Small because they are a bit loose on me - not in a way that they would slip down, but just a tad looser than I feel is normal. [I'm 5'3'' and 128 lbs]. Aside from that, they are a nice lightweight short to wear under shorts/pants for things like hiking, biking, climbing, or just for pajama bottoms. FYI the legs do roll up.
I bought the old style of Patagonia's boy shorts and hated them. They rolled and folded and fit horrible. But.... I love boy shorts, so when I heard that Patagonia had done some re-designing, I gave them a second shot. I'm so glad I did!! These are great. I'm going to buy a bunch more. They fit well, stay in place, dry really fast, and no more bunching. Finally, these are the perfect pair of underwear. Get one for every day. Tip: Buy a size down from your normal undies.
