Everything we love about the Guidewater Pants, and less. The shorts version has all the same water-specific features – including a zippered side-leg pocket, mesh drainage on all pockets and a remarkably fast dry time – that make these the fishing shorts of choice for anglers. And the comfortable fit, zippered fly and constructed waist with stretch sections and belt loops make the Guidewater Shorts ideal for pretty much any activity. Which is to say, you may find yourself wearing ’em everywhere – we do. Now made from even lighter, 3.9-oz, woven nylon fabric with DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 50+ UPF sun protection. Inseam is 10".

DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
Lacking fur, feathers or scales, we humans have to think up clever ways to protect ourselves from the sun. Products with the UPF designation provide built-in sun protection that won’t wear off.
UPF stands for “Ultraviolet Protection Factor.” This value represents the fractional amount of the sun’s harmful UV rays that pass through a fabric. A rating of “25” indicates that only 1/25th , or 4% of the UV rays pass through the garment.
Patagonia products with rated UPF protection are tested independently to meet Australia/New Zealand or AATCC protocols. A rating of 15-24 earns a product a rating of “good”; a rating of 25-39 is "very good"; and a rating of 40-50+ is “excellent.” *
* When tested in accordance with Australian/New Zealand test methods AS/NZS 4399 or USA test methods AATCC 183/ASTM D6603/ASTM D6544.
