Hemp is an alternative natural fiber that’s cultivated with low impact on the environment. It requires no irrigation, uses no pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, and is harvested and processed by hand. It’s one of the most durable natural fibers on the planet, and results in a fabric with a wonderful drape, comparable to linen.

Unfortunately, industrial hemp is illegal to grow in most parts of the world because government agencies continue to associate it with marijuana. We currently import our high-quality hemp from China, and continue to hope that it might someday grow freely again.

Patagonia makes garments with hemp alone or blended with other fibers like recycled polyester, organic cotton and spandex.

Men's Back Step Shorts - 10" is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfortable! Love these shorts, the waist is a little tighter on me then other mediums I have purchased in the past. I am 5'9" 150 lbs. Other then that they fit perfectly, and are great for relaxing, climbing, or something a little more formal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a warm and humid climate I've worn these shorts almost daily during the late spring and early summer here in Florida. Temperatures are already rising and the famous southern humidity is here in full force, but these shorts are great and lightweight and work really well for the warm days here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical Light. Easy to pack. And cooling during those blistering hot days. My favorite daily shorts; matches my t-shirts, polo tee's and even shirts when out and about meeting friends. Worth every penny spent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these shorts -- like wearing nothing! I got these shorts a few weeks ago. They are super comfortable and lightweight. Kind of feels like I hardly have shorts on, which is a great feeling in the hot, humid summer. My only complaint is that I wish the back pocket had a button closure (or some other closure). Walking around town, I always like to close the back pocket when I have a wallet there, so a button would have been a great addition to these overall wonderful shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Comfortable Very light weight and comfortable. The Back Step shorts are perfect for lounging around the fire pit or a night out on the town. Go anywhere shorts. I wish it maybe had another pocket, but the just pushes me to live simply... Another stellar product Patagonia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in warm weather Bought these shorts for warm/humid weather music festivalling. My lady liked how they looked and I stayed comfortable and dry. Washed cold and line dried. Only one back pocket but I don't use those anyway so not a deal breaker for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Favorites These are excellent for daily wear as casual around-town shorts. They work well walking trails, running errands by bike, or catching up with friends over a few beers. They breathe well and feel light. You almost forget that you're wearing them. Put a cell phone, wallet, and keys in the front pockets and the pockets feel full - as in weight, not volume. I often wear cargo shorts - these don't compete with regard for carrying items, but they hold a few necessities easily without looking weighed down. I recently met two guys who have some from the first release (over seven years old, they said) and still going strong, which is why I decided to give them a shot. So far, they are my new favorites. They wrinkle easily, but they feel great and they look good many days in a row.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pants, please? I bought a pair of these for my husband. Beautiful fabric. Light! Airy! Overdye or fabric texture gives the shorts a depth that regular dye/fabric doesn't. Please make pants in this fabric next year. It would be a best-selling summer-weight pant. Dressy. Classy. Considered some of the Spring pant lines available but the fabric is SO dense as to be unbreathable. Like tent fabric. Thank you for these wonderful shorts. Pants are a must!
