Good board shorts. Note, there's no inner lining but I suppose that's how board shorts come. Only complaint is that there's only 1 small pocket on the shorts. I often wear these as regular shorts and the lack of pocket space is annoying.
"These shorts are so comfortable I sleep in them, really."
Look good, while treating your lower torso to a little stretchy ecstasy. These shorts are very light, durable, and dry in minutes. The only con in is that the pocket is a bit tight against your thigh,and makes it hard to carry anything that's not shaped like a pad of post-it notes. However, I don't think that matters since I won't be swimming with my wallet.
Ordered these pair of board shorts for a gift for my boyfriend. He loves them! He said the material is very comfortable and looks forward to swimming, kayaking, and water sporting in them. As a women, I think the fish design satisfies my fashion approval. Most of all, i think he's looking forward to having a pair of board shorts that he can spend all day in for all the summer activities we have planned! Great product Patagonia!
