Protect the ocean so it can protect us
Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.
We do our best to process and ship orders within 1-2 business days (Monday-Friday, excluding holidays). We kindly ask that you choose standard shipping where possible to reduce our environmental impact. If you have any questions about your order, you can reach out to our Customer Service team and we will be happy to help.

Could be lower-rise
I have to hike them up to get the crotch at the appropriate height. Then I need to roll the waist over a couple of times, so that the waist isn't at the bottom of my rib cage. I think they'd be ideal if the waist were about 2" lower. I like the deep front pocket and the back pocket. Rolling the waist, though, makes it difficult to ac... Read Morecess the pockets.
Tricky Back Pocket Colors
Absolutely love these shorts for all around use and they pack small for travel. Note: Be careful on the colors you order. Most are one color but I've ordered two 5" shorts where the pictures had a default navy color on the model but then shorts arrived with a totally different pocket color. (ie. red shorts had blue back pocket?)
Not ready for the adventure
I bought these to replace a pair that I have worn regularly for water centric adventuring for 8 years (Gi III). They were not a very good replacement. Something about the waistband design causes the shorts to roll down with hardly anything in the pockets. The pockets use the front of the shorts as their front side, so the seam that makes the bottom... Read Mores of the pockets (which is visible on the front of the shorts and also susceptible to wear, probably one cause of the failure) only needs to fail at one little lockstitch for the whole pocket to come apart, which it will. In my case one pocket failed in two weeks, the other in 2 months. In the single season I had the shorts the fabric was bulletproof, seeing plenty of possible snags in coral and cliffs on less than ideal water approaches. If you don't care about pockets, these could be perfect, if you always end up with trash or snacks or shells or rocks in your pockets, you might want to look elsewhere. I have had ok luck with the everyday short and loved the Gi III's. The belt waist on both of these is more comfortable for me, and the pockets stand up to much more abuse.
Who needs a liner?
It's taken me a long time to enjoy baggies. Every time I've tried them on, the mesh liner has always turned me off to them. When I mentioned this to the salesperson they shared that everyone on the staff just cuts them out. It seems like a universal thing among the staff. And I've got to admit that taking a pair of scissors to my bra... Read Morend-new shorts felt weird, but removing the liner made a massive difference! Here's my question, How many people are removing the liners from their baggies?
Thank you so much for your review! We are stoked to hear that you were able to find a solution to your shorts and that you are enjoying them fully. Please note, although many individuals do cut out the liner, this does void our warranty on the shorts.
Perfect casual round the house shorts
I have three pairs of these and they have become my absolute go to for a casual short around the house. Pretty much the first thing I put on Sunday or Saturday morning when I begin my house/yard work. Great for jumping in the pool to cool off and then they dry quickly. Will always have two or three pairs in my collection.
I wear them in the summer heat and love that I don't have to worry about getting them wet when the opportunity to cool off presents itself (pool, river, lake).

Ok if you like really, really baggy shorts
I'll only wear these (size large) around the house as they are overly baggy which I don't particularly like. I also bought a medium size awhile back and although they are ok in the waist, they are too tight otherwise. Maybe at some point I will either get smaller and wear the medium or, I'll balloon and then like the large.
Hey Dennis, thanks for the review. We're sorry to hear that the fit of these shorts isn't working for you.

Greatest shorts ever - except for one small detail
These shorts are the best. They last forever and fit well. I hate the mesh liner so I cut them out, it would be cool if they offered these with optional mesh lining, perhaps for a small discount. One small detail I wish they would change: I appreciate the elastic key loop in the right pocket, but I carry my keys in the left pocket. Please give us a... Read More key loop in both pockets!

Been wearing Baggies, both short
Been wearing Baggies, both short and long, for 45 years. Bought two new pairs because I could no longer be seen in public in my old ones, according to my wife and daughter. By the way, my daughter wears Baggies I bought in 1987! These new ones will last the rest of my life.
Great all around shorts
I have a pair of baggies from 15+ years ago and I couldnt stand the liner so I cut it out. This old pair is also a size or two too big so while at REI the yellow pair caught my eye.

Late to the Glory that is the Baggie
Since the 1980s I have been a Stand Up kinda guy with a pair or three in continuous rotation from April to October in Vermont.

I have worn baggies for the last 10 years. Not only are they the most incredibly made products, but they are also the best colors, and shorts that I can wear grabbing coffee, doing yard work, fishing, playing pickleball, swimming, surfing, whatever it is I want to do.

Seem bigger than before
Bought 2 pairs of mens baggies 3 years ago in size Small. Simply put, I loved them. Recently purchased another pair in Plume Grey in the same size.

Go to swim trunks
I wear baggies for anytime I think i'll be wet. Could be hanging at the pool, swimming in the lake, paddleboarding, rafting, etc. Super comfy, not too long in the leg so they don't grab my thigh.

Fit/Cut Has Changed
I bought my first pair of Baggies in 2007 (and another in 2008) and they're still going strong. I have worn the heck out of those shorts and the elastic is as good or better than any other pair of shorts (other than Baggies) I have bought new within the last year. I decided it was time to grab a new pair of Baggies after 14+ years of wear. My ... Read Morefirst thought was that the new Baggies (Size Medium) were huge. I measured them against my old pairs and the waist was almost an inch longer (laid flat on my bed and measure across the waist) and the outseam was easily 1/2 inch or longer. The inseam feels much more like a pair of 7 inch inseam shorts, like a pair of Stand Ups. I thought this was a potential one-off pair and reached out to Patagonia. I spoke with two reps and both of them gave me great information, each something a little different. One mentioned that the cut of the short has not changed, so the sizing should be the same, and the other admitted that it is more than probable that they have changed since I bought my last pair - totally reasonable. So I went ahead and sent them back, thinking they were abnormally big. I went to a local store and tried on a pair of Smalls and they were hardly Baggies - more like Slimmies. So Medium was the right fit for me, and I used the credit from the return of the first shorts to grab a new pair. Unfortunately, the new pair is just as big, perhaps even slightly bigger. I guess all great things come to an end, but the fit of these shorts now is just not the way it used to be. Such a bummer.
Hi Brody, we're so bummed to hear that the Baggies Shorts didn't meet your expectations regarding fit. It's very possible that the sizing has slightly changed throughout the years, and we completely understand the frustration. Please be assured that our Design Team will take your feedback into consideration moving forward. In the meantime, if you find the fit too bothersome, please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) those at any time.

Bigger than last season
I bought these in the summer 23 sale. Compared to last year, the size small is much bigger. I put the new pair up against my old ones and the new ones are 2-3 inches bigger in the waist. Overall, it is a much bigger fit. Crazy the discrepancy.

They fit right in the waist and seem appropriately baggy, but then theres no stretch in the shorts or liner material so you cant do much in them.

Hey Brian, thanks for your review! We're sorry to hear you've had some issues with the black color of our Baggies Shorts.

Softer fabric than the womens
So, Im a woman, and I have like 10 pairs of the womens baggies.

We're glad to hear you're loving these Baggies! Both the Men's and Women's Baggies are currently utilizing the same 4.5-ounce recycled nylon (4.3-ounce for the print fabrics) so current season product should feel the same.

I am all for baggies! This is my second pair of this color and I love theses shorts. However, it seems Patagonia has changed their design even from last year when I had purchased other pairs. They seem to be looser around the legs and more boxy than before. Still love them for everyday wear.
Close to great
I have thick thighs from biking and they seem a bit tight there. The waist fits fine, the bottom opening is fine, but for someone with thick thighs you might want to reconsider. I also didn't know they came with a liner, it's an easy fix to just cut it out. Build quality seems great as usual.
Thanks for the review, Hunter! We recommend always reading the product description before purchasing an item, this will give you an idea of what to expect and where you'll find info on different features (fit, liner, pockets, water repellency, etc.).

I really enjoy the feel and shape of the shorts, I wear them all the time when I get home from the office. They're great in the summer when I wear them outside to hike and camp. The pockets are great, sometimes it's hard to dig in them since the pockets are so deep but the pocket size is my favorite feature. It's hard to synch the wa...

Great all around shorts
I've worn these around on the weekends casually and also playing sports, running, working out, etc. The lining means you can also swim with them. Made from tough material but still lightweight. Also I don't think these retain sweat or smell as badly as other workout shorts do, especially if you're wearing underwear too and not just r... Read Moreelying on the internal liner. Definitely a great pair of all around swimming/workout/outdoors shorts. I usually wear a 34" waist but found the Medium to be a bit small since I have a big butt/thighs. The large was a bit looser on the waist but fit better overall.
I'm brand new to the world of baggies. Just bought a couple on sale. Im 5 ft 9in around 150 lbs, and the small fits me very well. The waist has some elasticity too, so if I add a few more pounds it should expand just fine. To me, they're less baggy, and more.. airy.. if that makes any sense? I see reviews about it not being the same short... Read Mores as in decades prior (which I have no knowledge about), but they feel rugged and versatile enough AND they fit really nice and make my legs look great. Will probably be buying more right after writing this review.
Not Made For Squats
I bought the Patagonia Men's shorts because I wanted a durable pair of workout shorts. Mainly to squat and lunge with. The shorts seem to be made well, and the material feels good and sturdy. However, as you squat, the shorts slide down. If you have a cell phone in your pocket, they kinda slide down. When you're active, they slide down an... Read Mored don't stay on in tact. You might say I got a size too big, I originally bought a medium and the problem was worse. I love Patagonia as a company, love their shirts. But, I called and asked which shorts I should get for lifting and they suggested these. I'm disappointed. While these might work for someone else that's not as active, maybe great for walking shorts, for me, they don't work so well. It's as if the elastic waist needs to be made stronger, I don't know. I don't like to leave a bad review for Patagonia since I do really like the company, but, after getting emails about my feedback, I thought this would help improve the quality of the shorts going forward.
Hey Robert, thank you for the review. We're very sorry to hear that these shorts were recommended to you for lifting. While we do not make any of our gear with lifting in mind per se, these would not be the first that we would suggest. The Baggies are great for casual day to day use, but they won't have the technical features that you'd find in something like our [Men's Strider Pro Running Shorts](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-strider-pro-running-shorts-5-inch/24633.html?dwvar_24633_color=LTPG&cgid=mens-shorts). They come in a 5 or 7" inseam, so you can choose your preference. As the name suggests, they were designed for running, but we think the breathable fabric and lightweight built-in liner would be great for lifting, checking them out!
Love them Baggies
I got the mushroom design, and I love it. These are super comfy, and I wore them kite surfing this week, as well as on a long hike. Trouble is, I also have a pair of Baggies that are >20 yrs old, and same size, supposedly, but the new ones have a larger waist, and kind of more puffy and big. I like them a lot, just wish they fit like the old sch... Read Moreool pair.
Classic shorts. I dislike the liner so I cut it out, frees up a ton of space down there! I am typically a size medium in shorts, but the waist on these fits between a medium and a large, so I have to tie the waistband if I want to do any sort of activity without them falling down. If you are between sizes I recommend sizing down. Additionally, bewa... Read Morere that the shorts are made of real strong nylon. This means they will last forever but also that the fabric is quite stiff, hence the necessary baggy-ness.
The GOAT of shorts
Baggies are my go-to shorts for the majority of the year when applicable. Perfect for camping/ backpacking, their lightweight yet durable design allows for optimal comfort without the concern of a wardrobe malfunction (looking at you Ms. Jackson). While wearing these you may be called "crunchy" but will you care? No, you'll be comfor... Read Moretable and ready for adventure.
I like the idea of deep pockets, but when I put my wallet and handphone in them they kinda swing left and right when I walk. It may be lesser an issue for taller folks.
We appreciate your feedback. You might prefer to utilize our Ultralight Hip Pack or check out our other Men's shorts made with predominantly nylon materials like the [Men's Wavefarer Hybrid Walk Shorts](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-wavefarer-hybrid-walk-surf-shorts-18-inch/86775.html). We welcome you to return the Baggies if they're not working for you. Thanks Victor!
