Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Patagonia Quandary Shorts - Max Utility The Patagonia Quandary shorts maximize usefulness. Because they are available in numeric waist sizes (both even & odd) they fit extremely well, and they also have an interior draw string so there is no need for a cumbersome belt (think airport security). In addition, the shorts have 5 pockets including a front and back zip pocket to secure personal items. They are the perfect shorts for "any" activity (biking, swimming, running, hiking, climbing, walking, traveling, camping, lounging and sleeping). To that point, I recently brought 12 pairs of old shorts & work-out trunks to the Goodwill drop, and replaced them with 3 pairs of the quandary shorts reducing my clothing inventory some 75%. In fact I'm wearing a pair while I write this review, and I couldn't be more comfortable. Great design, great features, and an all around quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shorts Best shorts for climbing, riding and just plain daily wear. Extremely comfy yet robust. Fit is slightly large but the drawstrings or a belt take care of this no problem. My new favorite shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around short! I bought my first pair about 10 months ago and since then I've really put them through the ringer. I've worn them wet wading while fly fishing, under fishing waders, hiking, traveling and even working in the yard and I can still wear them to dinner the same night and still look good. I bought 2 more pair a couple months later! I'm a sz 31 waist in most stuff including Patagonia but I did find these running a bit large. A 30 waist fit perfectly in the 10" inseam. These are really quick drying so they worked really well for wet wading.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great shorts The shorts fit well and you can move easily in them. They dry off quickly if they get wet. I've already purchased a second pair. Great shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Quandary With These Shorts Patagonia Quandary Shorts for Men are the best. Plenty of pockets and the fabric is very lightweight and stretches. These shorts have 10" inseam and I have them hemmed 3" to make 7" inseam. I am an older, avid hiker and like the shorts above my knees for more freedom of movement. I asked Patagonia to make a 7" short but no luck so far. It only costs about $10 to hem so for me it is worth it.
