Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite shorts (next to my cut off Levi's) I've been wearing these for at least 15 years, and they're great! I don't like long shorts (I'm a 70's throw-back), and the 5" inseams are just right on my short legs. I also don't like synthetics, so the heavy cotton material is like wearing a good pair of Levi's. They last longer than any shorts I've ever had, except for a pair of hemps that I finally wore out. My last pair have now become frayed at the leg hems, the belt line and the pockets, but they just keep on going. I can wear them to work in, to play or (when yet un-worn out), for casual outings. They seem to be hard to find unless you really look for them, but as long as they're making them, I'll buy them. And, thanks Moosejaw, for the almost impossible to find sale price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic By far the most versatile shorts out there. Strong not binding and super comfortable. Great for just taking a walk with the kids or on a trek in the woods. I have worn these for many seasons to find that they just keep getting better with time like a pair of broke in boots. They fit pretty true to size and are pretty short in the 5 inch version but if that's what your shooting for these are the shorts for you. You will find that it's hard to abuse these with the supper rugged canvas material but with washing will become soft. Five star get a pair and see for your self.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shorts for short (vertically challenged) individuals. The ones you always grab to throw on, and they age so well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from stands up to the challenge Worn while backpacking in the Cascades; canoeing in N. Idaho, and dining with the in-laws in Seattle; these shorts can take it all and come out looking as good as I do (OK, better than I do). The material is strong wash after wash, it doesn't break down from extended uses and washes and looks great after a run through the dryer or air drying. ,,,,I prefer the shorter inseam for greater range of motion while scrambling or getting in our out of the boat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't find a better pair of shorts. Honestly the greatest shorts on this planet. Doesn't really matter what you do, if you do it in these shorts you'll probably be better at it. The older they get, the more comfortable and better looking they get. Extremely durable, unless you dip, in which case you'll get some pretty significant fraying on your ass. Might be a little short for some folks over six foot, but a little summer sun on the nethers never hurt anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect set of shorts I've been wearing Patagonia Stand up shorts for 15+ years. I used to wear other brands of shorts but once I got a pair of Stand ups I was hooked. They are super durable, never tear, fit me great, have lots of very usable pockets, last for years... What's not to love? They look great; toss on a nice shirt and it's off to the opera or a wedding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only Shorts You Will Ever Need! These are the alpha and omega of shorts. Tough enough for yardwork, nice enough for Easter Sunday, comfortable enough for lounging, and flexible enough for climbing. I have never seen a short with this much versatility. Throw away every other pair of shorts you own (except maybe some patagonia baggies) and buy these. You won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reach for these for every activity Got them for hiking, use them for everything. My favorite tennis short, can fit a whole can of balls in a pocket. Comfortable for canoeing or kayaking, but do take a while to dry out. Older ones find their way to yardwork - last forever. Sizes run big. My wife thinks I buy them because it's the only way I can wear a 34.

can a measurement be made from the waist of one of these given the conflicted reports on sizing?

Asked by: Greg
Hiya Greg, thanks for your question! The short has a 5 inch inseam and a 15 inch outseam (from the waist to the bottom of the hem). The measurements were taken from a size 34 short. Hope this helps!
Answered by: Alice in Wanderland
Date published: 2017-05-23

Apologies, meant actual measurement of the waist itself, preferably from a tagged 32"

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.
