The pared-down back pocket is self-draining, has an internal key loop and doubles as a compact stuff pouch; the pocket has a corrosion-proof plastic zipper.

Water Resistant

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.

Men's Light & Variable® Boardshorts - 18" is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Really lightweight, extremeley comfortable, fabric feels nice against skin, dries very quickly... the only thing I would add is 2 cm to the back pocket width - I think it wouldn't compromise the design and instead would add a little bit of capacity to carry, for instance, a surf dry bag more comfortably. Excellent product, great work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thin and comfortable Got these for the past summer and have other Patagonia board shorts, these are much thinner, which for hotter days has been great, don’t feel like i am out on display even when wet. Love the fit and feel, if prefer shorts with some substance these aren’t for you. Want something lite that you feel like your not wearing anything these are perfect. I have also warn them doing yoga which, and the stretch has been great and no chafing on the waist is always a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for swimming or yoga My only complaint is not enough colors or inventory

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Miss the old Light & Variables Got the Ink Black pair of these shorts, hoping they would be like the old Light & Variable shorts, which were my all time favorite shorts (discontinued last season). When they came in, I was a little bumbed that they weren't really "black", more like a dark grey. No biggie. The stretch is comfy, but doesn't have that bullet-proof feeling the old ones did. Also, the material tends to stain easily. All in all, they're solid in the water, but the waist band tends to stretch a little, so I wish I got a size smaller. Just miss the old, bullet-proof material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Trunks for surfing light, non-constrictive movement, quick drying, athletic fit that is not too long but provides coverage. Best trunks for surfing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Boardshorts I owned the first generation version of these shorts and loved them. Recently bought one and these are even more comfortable than before. Lightweight, great for travel, surfing and unbelievably comfortable. Has some stretch and isn't too long or tight or baggy. I wear these daily when in weekend or vacation mode. Should be a staple in everyone's gear stash. I suggest darker colors if you're a dirtbagger like me and don't want to take these off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and quick drying! Super comfortable because they're just so lightweight and feel like they're barely there at all. Dries in ridiculously short amount of time and stows away nicely. Highly recommend
