Our lightest board shorts are made of polyester ripstop, with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 40-UPF sun protection; 18" outseam.

With inseam-free inner thighs, the travel-savvy Light & Variables® keep you free of chafe while you trim down the line. Like Speedos without all the bright white upper thigh, their light weight and functional simplicity make them a longtime favorite.

Other features include a no-button, flat-lying fly with drawstring closure, and a back pocket that's self-draining, has an internal key loop and also reverses into a compact stuff pouch. Pocket has a noncorroding plastic zipper, and the turned, bartacked drawstring is durable and adds mobility.

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.

Sun Protection

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.
