Boys and the outdoors—the two have a way of finding each other. Summit Shorts are sympathetic to the symbiosis; they are lightweight, tough wearing and quick to dry. Built of 100% nylon with 50+ UPF sun protection and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, these mega-durable boys’ shorts have an internal waist adjustment for a stay-put fit; roomy patch-on, drop-in back pockets and a zip fly with button closure. Gusseted crotch allows improved mobility. Below-the-knee length and 9" inseam.

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.
