Patagonia Strider Field Shorts - 9"

September 7, 2021

(almost) Perfect for me.

No complaints at all about these shorts. The fit, styling and material are exactly what I was looking for. My only wish would be for them to have a small pocket somewhere for a key. Pocket-free means that I have to either tie my key on my shoes or leave it somewhere safe during yoga or a workout. Thank you for asking!

Worst shorts ever...

My bad for thinking these shorts were the 9 inch baggies, and they had pockets. Not even close. Must be the cheapest, and thinnest pair of shorts ever made by Patagonia. Very disappointed. Dont waste your money on this product.

Thanks for the feedback Robby. These shorts are a lightweight short made specifically for Ultimate Frisbee. We do offer our Baggies™ in a long version [here](

Nice particle, fits too slim

For an active wear short, this is just too tight through the crotch and upper legs. Couldnt return it so Im living with it.

This is the lightest and for me best fabric I've found on a running short, especially an unlined short, my preference. They are maximum length for running and I'd LOVE to see them offered in a 7" inseam, and I'd like to have the waist ties about 3" longer; but otherwise change nothing.

Super comfortable

Very comfortable but hard to wear shorts without pockets when I carry my cell phone everywhere....

Light weight

Love these , would be great with pockets !

basic casual shorts

Material very light weight, excellent for hot weather. No liner, no pockets, no problem. Length is good, hits me about an inch above my knee. I wear them with a T shirt and flops around town and enjoy the sporty casual look and feel they provide. Waist tie could be a bit longer, but it's adequate for the job. Spring clasp is handy. Overall, ve... Read Morery nice, glad I bought them.

Super lightweight, great for working out

I bought these for generic workouts. I am not a runner, so I can't say anything about whether these would be good for that. I've been really impressed with Patagonia's materials lately...light...breathable...etc. My only gripe with this short is the drawstring is nearly useless. I bought a Large, have a 34" waist and I can barel... Read Morey tie the drawstring on these...and yes, I do use the drawstring because the last thing I need is to be fussing with my shorts falling down when I'm mid-set, or doing some other movement that might jerk these things around. Otherwise, great short.

Hard to call these Every-Day Run shorts

I don't understand the lack of pockets. These can't be called trail running shorts without pockets. The website copy reads, "We make shorts designed for all the ways you run." Sorry, but no, no, you don't.

Hey Ryan, thanks for taking the time to let us know your thoughts on the construction of these shorts. We completely understand how our minimalist approach, with a lack of pockets, caused some inconveniences. We always want to ensure you're satisfied, so please feel free to [send]( these back to us.

Fantastic material

You enjoy the shorts: Non bulky, very easy to wear. Maybe pockets would be nice. The fabric has an attractive pattern. You can tell it's a quality product.

I bought these as a pair of casual lightweight shorts for summer. When the shorts arrived the fit was not what I expected based off the photos and fit description. The waist was fine but the length was not. The length was too long extending well below my knees. Luckily, the fit my 6'2" son far better than they did me.

No pockets?!

These shorts would be such a great, lightweight, comfortable option, but I can to learn that there are no pockets! What a bummer!
