If home had waving palms, a wave-swept coral reef and a warm lagoon full of hungry bonefish, we’d never want to leave. But for those of us who rely on our all-too-short escapes to tropical climes, the Away From Home Shorts are just one more reason to wing away south. Made from durable, quick-drying nylon taslan, they provide reliable 50+ UPF sun protection and have a DWR (durable water repellent) finish for water resistance and faster dry times; the stretch-woven 96% nylon/4% spandex seat moves with your body and adds long-wearing comfort. With travel-friendly, jean-front styling, they also feature a nylon utility keeper, belt loops and a pair of back drop-in pockets; a double side utility pocket holds essentials on and off the water.

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.

Women's Away From Home Shorts is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light and comfortable I originally bought the khaki but as it was so excellent I ordered the grey as well and I simple love them. Very light, very comfortable and cool even on hot summer days. Perfect for everyday walking with dog and hiking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I should have read the reviews! I would have loved to keep these but they run at least two sizes small. A size 12 is usually loose on me but I couldn't even zip these up:( They are cute and lightweight but guess I'm out of luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuter in reality I should've paid attention to the reviews about the small sizing. I ordered a 4 bc my other Patagonia pants are 4s. These shorts in a 4 were snug. I'm exchanging them for a 6. Love the look and fabric. Will be great for travel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality and comfortable even though snug I wear a size 2 or 4 in Banana Republic. I bought these shorts in a size 6. The waist fits perfect. They are snug everywhere else, but I will admit I have very athletic (?beefy) thighs and posterior. I will definitely need to wear my no visible lines underwear with these, and that might not be enough. I like them for their length and feel of the material. A larger size would likely cause a huge waist gap so I'm keeping the snug size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I bought them twice... in both colors It's usually a good thing to lose weight, except when it means your absolute favorite shorts no longer fit. What's a woman to do, but buy the next size down... in both colors. The Home Away Shorts are super comfortable, and the side pocket is a great spot to stash my smartphone. They can be a bit wrinkly, but it's not as if I'm wearing them to the opera. Love 'em.
