The Patagonia Women's Happy Hike Short is a 4-way stretch short for summertime hiking. The polyester/spandex blend keeps comfort levels high while you explore the trails. The 4" inseam leaves your legs to soak up some of that sun and a hidden drawcord keeps them in place. Finished with a durable water repellent coating on the exterior, splashes from the creek shed off instead of soaking in.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

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 Great shorts! Perfect for our recent hiking trip in North Carolina. Stretchy yet sturdy and dried very quickly after becoming nearly soaked wading near a waterfall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! These shorts fit great, are breathable, dry quickly, and are very light! I took them on a multi-day backpacking trip and they were great! Didn't ride up or pinch. Overall, quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these shorts! I bought 2 pair of these a couple weeks ago and they are an almost every day wear for me. I love them! They can be dressed up or down and fit just perfectly. I don't know what the waist gap complaint was in some other reviews because I don't have that problem at all, they seriously are a perfect fit. I'm wearing them as I type now, I wore them to my son's baseball game and got lots of compliments, and I can be active in them and they stay cool and dry. The best! Would buy again for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts Very comfortable and versatile. I wore these for a hiking trip in the dessert where temps were in the high 80’s. These shorts were perfect as they are very light weight and have some stretch to them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So Disappointing -- Massive Waist, Useless Pockets I was so excited when I ordered the Happy Hike shorts, along with Patagonia's Quandary Shorts, thinking that at least one of them would surely work for me. Sadly that was not to be the case. The Happy Hikes were a disaster. Although the stretchy fabric easily accommodated my speed skater thighs (not a euphemism, I actually do the sport), the ridiculous amount of pocket flare and massive gaping in the back of the waist were a deal breaker. I don't mind a bit of pocket flare, but these stuck out so far, they made my hips looks 4 inches wider. Aside from how bad that looked, it meant that anything placed in the pockets would quickly fall out. The internal drawstring did not help with the waist gap -- even when cinched there was a noticeable gap, and the shorts would dip down so far when I leaned over/squatted, nothing short of a tunic would prevent the world from seeing my underwear in all its glory. In comparison, the Quandary Shorts fit better and had no pocket flaring, but still had a large waist gap and the additional issue of bunching in the front from excess fabric. Patagonia seems to style its pants/shorts for bodies that are more gifted in the midsection and backside. Unfortunately, I will have to send both shorts back. For reference, I have 36" hips, 26.5" waist, with muscular thighs and little junk in my trunk or stomach, and purchased my usual size 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Comfort and Quality Love these shorts! Fabric is super comfortable and stretchy (for those "shouldn't have eaten that burrito" days.) I bought these to replace a similar pair I've had for years that I lost. The only con I would have to say is the front pockets aren't very functional. It's hard to keep little things from falling out when you sit down (unless it's a burrito day and they are wedged in there) :) The older model's front pocket openings were horizontal, 6 star quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from can't have enough this short I have 3 of this shorts, I love it feels, light, easy take care and quick dry, its very travel friendly, its probably the reason I'm going to buy the happy hike pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can see why these are called Happy Hike Short Most comfortable shorts I've ever owned. Not tight around the waist, just the right leg length and you can actually put your phone and other items into the pockets. Love these shorts and will definetely be buying another pair.
