UPF Fabric

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.

To achieve sun protection, Patagonia takes a varied approach, depending on the degree of protection desired and the fabric used. Elements of the strategy can range from yarn selection to fabric construction to the use of special finishes (especially for light colors which generally provide less protection).

Recycled Nylon

Although we’ve been using recycled polyester in our garments for 20 years, for some reason locked deep in polymer chemistry, nylon is more difficult to recycle than polyester. After years of research, development, and testing, we’re finally finding some recycled nylon fibers that are suitable for apparel.

Some of the recycled nylon we use comes from post-industrial waste fiber, yarn collected from a spinning factory, and waste from the weaving mills that can be processed into reusable nylon fiber.

We’re diligently searching for a success story with recycled nylon. The challenge lies ahead of us, and we’re committed to discovering the best methods to recycle nylon fiber, but it appears this evolution will take many years.

Boys' Wavefarer Shorts is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this short Finally, I had to retire our first pair of these shorts. They are EIGHT years old, My boys grew out of them. (they were size XS - maybe even XXS) sizing has changed. My nephew will enjoy them now. PLEASE bring back the fun prints from 8 years ago. There was a fabulous dragon print. Hawaiian flower print. PLEASE make them in a size 6. The size 8 almost fall off my 11 year old. (yes he is slim - but a size 8 is too big??) While they do not really understand "brands" They will not wear swim shorts, other than Patagonia. ( They say "like those shorts") They Love the comfort, quick drying and ease of these shorts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from These are nice sturdy shorts. The only drawback is they are too roomy in the waist for my slender son. I have asked Patagonia different times, to consider making board shorts for slimmer boys. I think a board short with the Summit shorts features, would be a great idea;) Maybe soon?
