Patagonia Men's Baggies™ Shorts - 5"

Excellent - deep pockets

Deep pockets all the way to the bottom so just be aware of that. Good at times, sometimes a little annoying with a big cell phone in it, but I usually put my phone in the back pocket if possible. Great quality and the 5s are the perfect length.

A Patagonia Staple

I've been wearing Baggies for a few years now. I love them in the summer. I think the best way to describe these would be adventure shorts. They are part swim trunk, part short. I've also used these as running shorts, worn them hiking and backpacking, and everything in between. I've never cut out my liners, but I know that a lot of p... Read Moreeople do. This is probably my biggest gripe with these shorts. I would love it if Patagonia paired baggies shorts with a built in Sender boxer brief liner... Think about it Patagonia, this could be a winning combination. Try it out, send me a pair to sample, I'll let you know what I think. I'll still probably keep buying them anyways.

Never Going Back to Other Shorts

These shorts are the BEST shorts ever, I got a pair for my birthday and I never want to take them off! Theyre super comfortable and durable, a great fit and so versatile. Im never buying another brand of shorts again, fan for life.

July 25, 2020

Pretty comfy

Got a size small but wish I went one size down cause they run a little big. They look more like six inch seam on me so if I went one size lower I feel like I would have the look I am going for. Overall very comfy though and still look great.

July 23, 2020

Best shorts ever!

These shorts are sick! I have 7 different pairs (one for every day of the week). They run a little big. Im 511 195ish lbs with a 31-32 inch waist and an athletic build. I have relatively big quads. I thought Id wear a large because I normally wear large shorts, but the larges fit big (especially on the waist) so I went down to medium and they fit p... Read Moreerfectly! I love these shorts. They are ridiculously comfortable, they look amazing, and you can wear them for any occasion. I will definitely be buying more!

July 21, 2020

Best shorts ever

I now have 3 pairs and they have completely replaced any other active shorts I own. I wear them hiking, around town, and lounging at home. The material feels great and feels like itll last. On one pair I cut out the lining on the other two I left it in. Both methods are great. Ive worn them swimming too and theyre great for that too. The pockets ar...

Versatile and Eternal

The baggies can seamlessly work for any occasion or with any outfit that I could ever need in the summer. For a quick trip to the lake, they breath easy enough to wear on the ride up, handle moisture with aplomb when jumping in the water, and dry off with speed so there's no need to change. I can wear them with a workout shirt or something mor... Read Moree casual. If I need a durable pair of shorts for work that will clean well after the fact, the baggies are my go to. They're the perfect clothing item for the season.

Great short

Great product, can be worn across activities.

July 13, 2020

Everyday wear

These are the most comfortable everyday wear at home. Have a few and have not put pants on since the pandemic.

July 13, 2020

Love the short shorts

I first purchased baggies 7, and they looked like board shorts on my frame. Ive got short legs. I recently switched to the 5 baggies and loved the fit immensely. The shorts land right above the knee, just how I like it. Also the prints and fair trade sewing are great

July 13, 2020

Comfort at its finest

These shorts are simply for best for everything. Swimming, lounging, exercising, etc. I wear them every day. Need more cool designs. Bring back Fun Hogs designs!

July 13, 2020

Light and comfortable, lose the lining

Baggies are shorts, but the lining has always baffled me. I decided on this pair to lose the lining (cutting it out myself) and I have used them immensely more than a pair I had years ago. Light, breathable with excellent pocket placements, theyre a summer staple.

July 13, 2020

These Truly are Lifes Shorts

Ill cut to the chase: when the weather warms up, I live in these shorts. If you value simply made and bomb proof pieces then look no further. These are the do it all shorts from morning yoga, all day pitches, afternoon swims and evening beers. You wont notice them on and they dry off faster that anything else. The pockets are perfectly designed to ... Read MoreKEEP things in them regardless of activity. Buy these and ask yourself why you even own another pair of shorts.

Still the best

This was my second pair of these shorts. The first pair was well worn over 5 years. My family and I purchase Patagonia clothing for durability and comfort. So we have many favorites. We hike, run, camp, and play hard. Patagonia fits our lifestyle!

July 13, 2020

Baggie Not Bulky

Easy to move in, with deeeep front pockets and a comfortable mesh liner to keep things in place.

July 13, 2020

Best Shorts Ever

Super comfy, true to size & these pockets are unmatched they are super spacious!

July 13, 2020

Versatile & Comfortable

Baggies are the perfect summer short for going from the trail to the river. Love the deep pockets and snap pocket for storage on the go. Tough enough for any activity. As a skinnier person, I do have to size down to get the best fit (29in waist -> XS size for me)

July 13, 2020

Great Construction

There are a lot of mesh lined, nylon style shorts out there. I have found that many are too stiff and don't sit correctly on the body or the lining is too rigid or made of low quality materials and tends to chafe the legs. This is not the case with Patagonia. Patagonia pairs top quality materials with superb construction for a perfect fit. Wea... Read Morer with confidence, comfort and enjoyment. Cheers!

The pants are good, but I think I could size down.

The go to short

I'm telling you, just try them. They are awesome!

July 13, 2020

Elite

Simply put the best swim shorts you could ever own. Baggies have the best designs and are made out of the best materials. As an undergrad myself, its nice to know I will be able to wear these well into adulthood and not look washed-up. Only thing that I dont totally love is that the inseams are a bit long even though it claims to be 5 inches.

July 13, 2020

Superior quality

Overall excellent shorts. These are the shorts Ive spent a lifetime looking for; great fit, comfortable, superior quality, stylish. Very versatile; great for casual wear, hiking, and swimming.

July 13, 2020

A swell pair of shorts

Used for fishing, swimming, and beach wear, these baggies do the trick. Durable enough for long days on a panga. Glad they are available in a shorter length, too.

July 13, 2020

Great quality

I am very impressed with the material this brand provides! The baggie shorts are my go to for daily activities involving water, outdoor exercise or even lounge wear. Super spacious for movement and they dry fast too! Would definitely recommend these shorts!

These shorts are great. I love the design and they are super comfortable to swim in.

I got these shorts as a gift for someone else and they absolutely love them! I am not kidding he wore them for 3 days straight. I was so impressed with the material quality and how well made they are. Love these shorts, love this brand.

Versatile outdoor shorts

Love these for all sorts of activities during hot weather. They run a little large/baggy, but since the material is sturdy and doesn't stretch it is nice to have the extra mobility. The side pockets are very deep which is kinda weird, but a great product overall.

July 13, 2020

True Classic

Have been wearing these shorts since I was 5 - 30 years later and they are still some of my favorite shorts. Perfect for rivertrips.

What can be said about Patagonia's Baggies that hasn't already been said? The shorts are durable and will last many seasons without needed to be repaired. My last pair has held up great over 3 years.

The 5 baggies are perfect for an summer outfit. Dress them up or down for any occasion. Very comfortable and great fit.

Just not good

For the price you would expect somthing long lasting, cumfy to wear and atleast higher quality than somthing at Walmart. I got none of this out of this product.

Read Moreed. The material has zero stretch to them and are very warm and humid inside. This fabric feels like wearing a camping tarp as shorts. For a brand like Patagonia to invest in using recycled material is great as long as the quality of the product does not suffer which in this product I feel as though it absolutely has. Would not recommend buying for any reason other than being a beach boys song kook and wanting to flex on the frat boys your patagucci swim shorts with ripped pockets.

Nice shorts but...

Nice shorts, but need stretch. I love the liner as I need my shorts to be as cool as possible. I work outdoors in hot climates. They would be the perfect short if they stretched. It is hard to crouch down quickly...or climb a ladder. Just not enough give in the material. Thanks-

Quality has gone down

The first pair I got were my absolute favorite shorts I ever owned. Unfortunately, I had to purchase a new pair after losing my first pair. Sad to say that the quality on my new pair is noticeably different from the first pair I got. The first pair I owned for about 2 years and never once got a hole in them. The new pair got 2 holes in them from my... Read More car keys after a couple wears. I was really looking forward to a new pair of the indestructible shorts i had originally but it seems that with how popular these shorts have gotten recently they have brought the quality down as well. They still look good and I will still wear them casually but they just arent the same anymore.

July 2, 2020

Comfortable & Stylish! Love love these

Just got these in the mail and absolutely love them. Super comfortable to wear, but look much more stylish than regular gym shorts. Got the pink color and they look great. Absolutely recommend

July 1, 2020

Order one size down

Im 6 feet, 175-180 lbs, a large normally everywhere but had to buy a medium. Fits fine

June 30, 2020

Insane comfort

I just got my pair today and was so excited to put them on and they didnt disappoint at all! i dont want to take them off! the best shorts ive ever owned.

June 26, 2020

Cute print

I am a woman, and I bought these men's baggies because there aren't that many cute prints for the women's options. These are very nice, but obviously do not consider hips and butts. I would appreciate the same options for the women's styles also so I wouldn't have to gamble with purchasing men's sizes.

June 26, 2020

John

This is a great quality product.

Rad

Sweet shorts, the only annoyance is the pockets are pretty big/ deep.

June 26, 2020

Good quality

These shorts are great only thing that kinda bothers me is the shorts riding up when sitting down. But that seems inevitable

June 26, 2020

Alligators and bullfrogs!

What more do you need?! Most comfortable netting Ive had in a swim suit. They also have deep pockets... havent utilized them yet, but I like that theyre available.

June 26, 2020

Wet and wonderful

These things are the perfect summer shorts work great for swimming. The deep pocket a my stuff doesnt fall out while running around. 10 outta 10 would recommend to a friend!!

June 26, 2020

Hip Creep

Shorts are great until you sit or crouch. They need a reshape in hips so that the front of leg area doesnt bind and pull on rear of short. I wore this model of your short back in 1989-1995 and they wore like iron and fit better in that area.

Great for everyday use, also can pass as swim trunks.

I use these shorts for literally everything. Swim in them, hike, rock climb, you name it! I love that i can wear them all day (without underwear), they are super comfortable to lounge in all day.

I like how big and comfy a L fits me. Im a 31 or 32 waist, so the L is a bit big for my waist, but there's a drawstring in the shorts i tie that helps it stay on my hips. Hope you luv them as much as i have

June 26, 2020

Lightweight and very comfortable

Overall my favorite pair of shorts, but one thing Id change is make the pockets smaller.

June 25, 2020

Little short in length

The shorts are just a little short in length, but other than that I love them. The bagginess makes the perfect for comfort wear.

June 25, 2020

Loose waist, designed like a swim trunk

These have a lining like a swim trunk and are a little on the warm side because of the material. I wear a medium in pretty much every other brand, but these are pretty big--even with the weight I've gained during the lock down, they are pretty loose.

June 25, 2020

Great all around shorts

These are great. I wear them all the time in the summer for pretty much everything! I wish they were a tiny bit elastic, but that is really picking at nits. Love these shorts!

June 22, 2020

Perfect For Summer

These baggies are perfect for summer I have multiple pairs and wear them non-stop in just about every activity.

The perfect pair of shorts!

I wear them for everything, hiking, doing chores and drinking beer. They so perfect for summertime I had to get a second pair!

Awesome All-Around Shorts

These 5" Baggies have quickly turned into my favorite shorts! I now have three pairs that I wear in constant rotation. They are extremely comfortable for leisure, day-to-to activity, and exercise. Additionally, I am 5'8" tall and weigh 140 lbs. and the Small size fits just how I like -- comfortable around my waist and fall about 4 ... Read Moreinches above my kneecaps. Lastly, people who often wear athletic or all-purpose shorts know that it can be a struggle to find shorts with reliable pockets; look no further than these shorts. The pockets are deep and hold onto my phone, wallet, keys, etc. very effectively, and also has a small elastic loop in one of the pockets which is perfect for hook-on keychains or small accessories you have. YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THESE SHORTS!

Bomber Baggies

What can I say? I love em. I practically live in them all summer, the purple are freaking awesome and make me feel like a rockstar. Even my 9yr old daughter loves them on me! If I had to choose one short to wear for the rest of my life it would be Baggies.

June 20, 2020

Awesome shorts

I'm 5'11, 170 lbs and went with a small and it fits perfect. I bought the mediums a few years ago and although they fit, were a little too baggy. They also appear longer than other 5" shorts. Super comfortable and high quality.

June 19, 2020

Year round quality gear

Patagonia baggies are my "go to / year round" gear. Be it for hikes (forests or streets), spring, summer, fall AND winter or just casual daily wear (like these were ordered for), simply quality gear.

Big Fan : lifestyle and up to task

Absolutely comfortable. Keep shape while also totally roomy, reading for activity or lounging.

Loose fitting

The Absolutely Best Designed and Long Wearing shorts on the market!

I have owned multiple pairs of these since 1982 , they wear like iron, have always stayed supportive/comfortable, virtually never faded and I wear them until they ravel and I buy new ones. Two of them lasted for almost 15 years of constant use as everyday shorts/swimsuits/bikeriding and hiking! Our whole family of four loves them and wears them fro... Read Morem April through August. . . it will be interesting to see if the newer softer fabric wears as well. We all like the new drain holes and key loop in the pocket. My wife and daughter would like to know why they don't get a snap pocket on theirs as we have on my son's and mine. Both of them have been know to wear mine, my son refuses to give his up to them. Still an OUTSTANDING Product . . Thank you for maintaining the sizes, pricing and quality! . . .Brian

Very comfortable and well made.

I like everything about these shorts except that the elastic waistband is not substantial enough. I would prefer a wider and stronger elastic band.

June 19, 2020

Great gift!

Bought these for a gift for my brother, he loves them! True to size and very comfortable I have heard from him. He is more of a clean cut guy/preppy so I bought him the shorter version, I was afraid they would be too short, but they were perfect! I also bought the longer pair for my fiancé, who is more casual and relaxed with his style, and got him... Read More the longer style, also a hit! Highly recommend both styles depending on the guy.

A little bit snug but over all a good fit.

Slip down

I love these, ived owned a bunch. They dry fast and the pockets are great. But I have no butt and these seem to creep down, so before you know it the top of my crack is showing.

Perfect for hiking, kayaking

I bought these shorts for hiking and kayaking and they are perfect, as I had hoped, for those activities. They're cool and comfortable with a great length, generous waist, and roomy feeling.

June 19, 2020

Great Shorts

These baggies turned out to be a great purchase. Bought some more after the first pair. They have deep pockets, like really deep, which help keep stuff from falling out. Took them boating and never had to worry about my phone falling out. One little thing is they can be a little tight in if youre really moving around. Overall great shorts.

June 19, 2020

High quality and stylish

Great for running, swimming, or just chilling. You can tell they are very high quality.

June 19, 2020

Comfy

I literally use these shorts for any occasion. They are very comfortable.

June 19, 2020

Dope shorts

Essentially lined bathing shorts. Super comfortable. Super versatile. Wear them around the house and out hiking or swimming.

June 19, 2020

Extremely comfortable

These shorts are perfect, versatile shorts that are good if you need to climb a mountain to just lounging in the swimming pool.

June 19, 2020

Still the best

The placement of the tags should be changed. Something about the size, shape or material is an irritant, poking into the skin.

Needs tighter elastic around waist

Needs tighter elastic around waist. Shorts slide down when I carry my cell phone in the pocket. Wish the elastic waist band was tighter/stronger.

June 17, 2020

Like all things Patagonia makes these shorts are everything. Ive already purchased 3 pairs. Two of the 5 baggies and one of the 7.

June 17, 2020

Best Swim Shorts

I have a few of these baggies and love the all. They're perfect for the pool since they dry quickly and don't stick to my legs in the process. Wish I could find a pair in coral!

June 17, 2020

Very Comfy

Very comfy and durable shorts. I get plenty of compliments on them when Im out on the trail. They run a bit big (I have a 30 waist and bought a small) but I can tighten them up with the drawstring. I dont believe the product description mentions it, but they do come with a mesh liner so you can wear them without underwear, but it is loose enough to...

Pretty cool/some restricted movement

I really love these shorts! They can either be running shorts or a bathing suit because of the mesh lining. The pockets are nice and deep but I wouldnt recommend running with Your phone in the front pocket since it might shift around.

Fantastic shorts with massive pockets

I own 4 pairs. My only complaint is that the mesh liner is a bit baggy and uncomfortable feeling, but I just cut out the liner. Pockets are nearly the entire height of the shorts, can fit a nintendo switch inside. Material is sturdy, drawstring allows customization of fit.

First Pair and Not Disappointed

This is my first pair of baggies and Im hooked. I love the 5 inseam and the waist fits comfy but not too lose. I purchased a small and I wear a 29/30 In pants/denim depending on brand.

Awesome All-Around Shorts

These 5" Baggies have quickly turned into my favorite shorts! I now have three pairs that I wear in constant rotation. They are extremely comfortable for leisure, day-to-to activity, and exercise.

Lastly, people who often wear athletic or all-purpose shorts know that it can be a struggle to find shorts with reliable pockets; look no further than these shorts.

YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THESE SHORTS!

Theyre called baggies for a reason

First I will give the measurements for anyone that may want to know. I have a medium pair. All of these measurements were taken with tailors tape while the shorts were laying flat on the floor. The measurements are in inches. Waist 16 across. Outseam 16. Inseam 4.5. Front rise from crotch seam to the top of the waist is 11. Leg opening 13.5. The ma... Read Moreterial has changed a bit from previous versions, but I prefer them over my older pair. They seem to be lighter and thinner but not too thin. There is now a hook loop inside the right pocket which I appreciate . These shorts are baggy. Thats the point. Theyre literally called baggies.... If you want some tighter fitting shorts, get something else. Theyre 100% nylon so theres no stretch. If youve never had these shorts, the pockets are very deep. They go all the way to the bottom. Some people seem to dislike that but its one of my favorite features. These shorts are great for sleeping, swimming, hiking, climbing... everything. The only reason I give them 4 stars is because the I really dont like the mesh liner. If youve ever had a mesh liner in shorts, you know after wearing them for a bit you get some serious booty itch. I just cut out the liner. This will likely void any warranty but I am fully aware of this. If you choose to chop out the liner too, keep it in mind. Other than the terrible itchy liner, theyre my favorite shorts I own. If you want a no frills pair of shorts that you can basically live in all summer long, look no further.

Ripped 2 Days After Arrival

I was very excited when I received these shorts, but was disappointed to say the least when these ripped down the inseam after wearing them once. The sticking was weak, and easily ripped when under stress. Not as durable as expected, would not recommend to a friend.

Really great shorts

I really like these. They're good quality and feel like they'll last a long time. The mesh feels really comfortable too. My only issue is the waistband feels way too big. I have to tie the internal string really tight or else they'll fall down.

Unflattering fit

True to the name, these shorts are baggie and untailored. Standard Patagonia good quality, If you don't mind looking like you have a trash bag around your midsection. Too bad Patagonia doesn't offer an alternative 5" inseam water short that is slimmer and more stylish.

Little too baggie

I am 5'8", and wear a 31" waist and the mediums were too loose around the hip, as in they almost slide off when my phone is in my pocket. Definitely recommend going a size down. Otherwise great shorts.

I have 4 pairs of baggies. Three I bought a few years back and one that I bought this year. It seems that the material in my new pair is a lot stiffer than the previous ones. It now pulls on my thighs when working out and I wish I would have gotten the next size up instead.

I could barely move around in them without the shorts pulling on my legs, which isnt good with the tough (and very durable) nylon material.

No more restricting but they were super baggy and the only way they wouldnt sag and give me a plumbers crack every time I bent over, was to tie them ridiculously tight. I love these shorts and I tried and tried to make them work. The M fit well other than I didnt have a full range of motion in them, which really isnt ideal for shorts that are made for, you know, swimming and hiking and the outdoors.

Sizing.

These shorts are built big hence the name. I am 6' tall / 175lbs and the size Medium is a perfect fit. At one point I weighed 210lbs and I would wear baggies in size Large.

Good, but BRING BACK THE OLD BAGGIES

Baggies are my favorite shorts. I probably have 10 pairs (all 5 version). However, the new models are not nearly as good as the older ones. They fit larger, they dont stay up as well, and the liner is not nearly as comfortable. More specifically; they are slightly longer, they are not as tight fitting on the waist, the liner is not as soft and is l... Read Moreooser, and the shorts are looser and more sloppy fitting over all. In my opinion the short version (5) should be very short (not getting longer) and the people who dont like short can get the longs version. If you still want to buy baggies, my advice is to size down honestly. The size xs in the new model fits the same as size s in older ones for me. I even have a vintage pair in size s that is tighter than the newer pairs in size xs. *for reference I have a sz 28 waist and a slim, tall frame* Only positive things I can say about the new baggies is that the material itself is spot on (in my opinion) and they are still coming out with really cool colors and patterns (purples on my radar). Another note on colors, Patagonia, PLEASE bring back Spiced Coral and Surfboard Yellow.

A master-class pair of shorts -- until they stunk

So I got these shorts over the Summer and immediately put them through a stress test -- 10 days of backpacking through Cuba. I swam in the ocean, rode horses, did some minor caving, and hiked all over the island and these shorts handled it all with aplomb. I made it back stateside and gave them their first wash. Not because they reeked or even smel... Read Moreled a little bad -- I just thought I would do something nice for such dependable shorts. I wear them all the time now. I live and go to school in Central Texas, so it's hot. These shorts are so loose, thin, and comfortable -- I can't remember how I endured the heat before I bought them! The pockets are another huge plus -- literally. They're enormous. If the opening were slightly larger, I'd be able to throw a Nalgene in each one and be the guy with 2 Nalgenes in his pockets (tautology anyone?). The rear snap pocket I'm sure is secure, but since the front pockets are basically reusable grocery bags, I tend to throw phone, keys, wallet, etc. in them. They each hold upwards of 4 tennis balls. There's a loop inside the right pocket, which I'm sure is useful for somebody but I haven't used it. I appreciate the utility of the tough, quick drying nylon these shorts are made of and the giant pockets. And as a male, I feel like I'm doing by body a favor by wearing shorts with this much breathing room! Also, they're great for rock climbing (if you like climbing in shorts), biking, and casual games of tennis. Recently, however, my experience has taken a dark (rank) turn. My shorts stink -- specifically, the liner stinks. I've heard some people cut it out, but personally I really like not having to wear underwear, so I kept my liner. I was washing my shorts once every 2-3 wears. But as of about a week ago, they've started to stink (badly) after only a couple of hours of wear. I'm confident my personal hygiene is good. My other clothes don't stink. I've tried hand washing the shorts, to no success. I talked to customer service, and they recommended I wash with vinegar, which I'll try (and if it solves the problem for 2-3 wears, I'll update this review). I think the problem is probably because the liner is not made of nylon, but polyester. I can't find this information on the product page, but it's clearly indicated on the tag of my shorts. I think what happened is the polyester for the liner was treated in some way (and I know Patagonia doesn't use silver nanoparticles, so some other treatment) and after about 3 months of lots of wearing and washing, the treatment has faded. Personally, I think the liner itself should be made out of nylon. The body of the shorts being made of nylon -- and so being resistant to bacteria and stinking -- is a major selling point of the product. The liner seems like the most at risk (of stinking) part of the whole shorts, and it's not a lot of fabric, so you'd think making it smell-proof would be both a priority and not terribly expensive. I also know Patagonia's warranty is incredible, and I have no worries that if I am unable to use these shorts, that I'll be able to return them or replace them. I'm actually bothering to write this review (instead of just returning my shorts) for 2 reasons. First, I love these shorts and I'm really hoping I'll perform a cleaning miracle (maybe with vinegar) on them and bring them back to life. Second, I respect these shorts as a feat of engineering and I'm hoping this review will find its way to interested parties and the shorts will be perfected -- impossibly tough nylon shorts, made by adequately compensated laborers with low environmental impact materials, featuring enormous pockets and a nylon (or better!) liner that real humans can wear day after day, year after year -- in SHORT, the greatest shorts ever made.

Favorite Shorts

The new baggies are great for just about anything and you get what you pay for. The liner is comfier than the older edition, which a definite plus.I wear these for mostly running, beach, and gym days. The 5" shorts are the only way.

October 3, 2019

Great Fit

My first pair of baggies and they are great. The large is roomier than I expected. I'm on the huskier end of the large spectrum and the fit is comfortable.

October 3, 2019

Amazing but limited

Baggies have been my go-to shorts for a long time now. I first got the grey 7" pair, and then I got the 5" royal blue pair. I use the grey ones as daily shorts and the blue ones as a swimsuit, the best one I've ever had. I liked both of them so much that now I have 4 pairs of baggies and want more, but every color I like is getting r... Read Moreemoved. They had the mayan yellow, neon green/yellow, burnt orange, and many other colors I liked but are gone now. I just wish they would have more variety and then keep them in stock.

Overall Good but Some Complaints

Overall, the Baggies Shorts are of good quality. After constant wear, they've held up very well, and are simple enough that you can wear them in most summer scenarios when paired properly. I also love the variety of colors and lengths. My complaints about the Baggies are regarding the pockets and mesh lining. Because the pockets are so deep ... Read Moreand go all the way to the leg opening of the shorts, even light-weight items will drag your pants down and you have to constantly pull them up. It also feels weird having items flail around just above your knees. It can also be a hassle getting items like a phone out of your pockets because of how deep the pockets are (especially when sitting down). I also don't understand the mesh underwear lining because during the summer it chafes you and feels incredibly awkward and uncomfortable for shorts that are more outdoorsy geared. I cut mine out.

A little disappointed

My husband ordered theses shorts to hike the AT. The shorts are comfortable. The reason for the 2 star deduction is related to the pockets. However, within The first few days he wore the shorts the stitching of both pockets came undone. This is odd since he didn’t carry anything in his pockets. We expected more from Patagonia quality.

Sizing is forever changing and

Sizing is forever changing and difficult to estimate. I used to be men's medium but now it seems I'm a small. I understand that freedom of movement is important.

September 10, 2019

Bummer Sorts Man...

At the price they could be designed better. Movement and quality of the fabric is fair and the pockets drain but add difficulty when items need to be stored in them. Also, the webbing for water play is on size fits all and is not kind to movement of flaccid flesh...just cut it out and wear your own underwear.

Good shorts

I like these shorter Baggies better than my old longer ones. The legs might be too baggy for rowing, though. The legs might catch in the slide; but I haven't tried them for that yet. Beach wear, mowing the yard, good for those things.

Only 4 stars because Patagonia changed the drawstring, and now it hangs up in a knot if you're not careful about untying it.

New School 5” Baggies

These are awesome shorts for sure. I loved my old Baggies and I haven’t had any of those for many years so I got some New School ones last month. Are they the Baggies you once had before? No. Things have changed. These are a more durable, 100% recycled nylon product that feel twice as thick as the originals, more robust. The added thickness makes t... Read Morehese shorts feel bomber tough. The only drawback is that the original Baggies were shorter, like 80’s short - these are just a bit longer at 5” long. Pro Tip here: the original Fun Hog uniform was mid-weight Capilene bottoms with Baggies worn over them in the cold. Why? Because the Baggies have a drawstring to keep them and the long tights in place, and the Baggies also have three useful pockets for lip balm or whatever. Looks funny, but works great! That’s how I plan on wearing these, old habits die hard. I love the solid colors, this is my second pair purchased recently. Pick up a few pairs and you’ll be set for summer. And winter!

Surprise ending

I admit that I bought these entirely for myself, a woman, because I wanted to try baggy shorts with the liner in them to see if I liked it better than the unlined women's version. Also, there were way more fun colors on sale in the men's version :) When I tried them on, I loved how they fit and was excited to wear them even though my par... Read Moretner told me they looked like I was wearing men's shorts (which I was, to be fair). When I told him to try them on to see if they fit him too, he said, "Oh, these are actually really comfortable." and proceeded to wear them for the rest of the weekend. He also insists that they are swim trunks because they are lined, and I can't convince him otherwise. Anyway, long story longer, I loved the shorts and my partner loves the shorts and we will be "sharing" them because they are so comfortable and well-made. For context, my partner refuses to wear anything besides jeans and sweatpants so the fact that these shorts won him over is a standout review in itself. Thanks for the cool shorts, Patagonia!

August 21, 2019

Great Shorts!

This is my second pair of baggies and my first pair of 5". I love them as casual shorts, a swimsuit, and even have worn them climbing in the gym even though that isn't their intended use. Would recommend.

Best Action Shorts Ever

Great for being active

The shorts are perfect for swimming, running and hiking. Durable build and great cut. My only issue is for casual wear when I have to carry phone, wallet and keys. The weight is too much for the elastic and drawstring to keep the shorts from riding down.

An Ode to Baggies

I own two pairs of baggies. One I bought May 2019--less than three months ago as I write this. The other pair I have had since 2008ish. I firmly believe that baggies were the best product that Patagonia makes, and I have loads of Patagonia clothing. I've had baggies since I was a little kid and looked up to my dad wearing them. I love baggies.... Read More At work as a wilderness therapy field guide I wear my old baggies at every moment that I can possibly bear being in shorts. When I'm not working I wear my newer baggies. If I had to wear a single piece of clothing the rest of my life, it would be a pair of baggies. When the weather is amenable I wear baggies almost constantly. I wear them thrashing through brush, climbing, hiking, practicing yoga, dipping into swimming holes and hot springs, surfing, laying in parking lots trying to diagnose or fix my van, and even sometimes while skiing. I am wearing baggies as I write this. The stitching on my older pair of baggies is finally starting to fail in bits and pieces; more than a decade after purchasing them. Each time I lovingly sew them up. It's getting to the point where there is more of my own stitching on my old baggies than Patagonia's. The older pair is wildly durable--and what few small holes I've gotten from wearing them constantly I've patched myself or sent them in to Patagonia for their excellent repair work. The leg elastic now bags out a day or two after washing. The drawstring once got caught in a dryer and ripped; I spent over an hour fishing a new drawstring through. My old baggies are hosses and I love them. They are burly and rugged. The new baggies are a different story. While I am not gentle to my clothing, my newer pair of baggies live an easier life. They spend more time in low wear environments like "around town" or "hanging out" than the thrashing that my older pair endures at work. And yet... Two weeks ago, I put my hand in the pocket of my new baggies and found my finger poking out the bottom. The stitching had ripped and was backing out. I bought these baggies less than three months ago. I sewed them. The fabric must either be a lighter weight or a different weave. I climbed in them once and now they're covered in scuffs which are wearing into full on holes. I bought these baggies less than three months ago. Maybe these changes in baggies are a result of Patagonia's continual push towards more environmentally friendly products... At this rate though, I'm looking at going through a pair of baggies per year while my old pair has kept truckin' for more than a decade. Is whatever Patagonia doing on the supply side so much more environmentally friendly that it's worth making a product that lasts a tenth of the time? Patagonia are you still making clothes for people who live their lives outside or for someone else? My old baggies are my favorite piece of clothing and their scars are memories of the fun hog ideology that Patagonia uses in their marketing. My new baggies are only fun hogs in the sense that they demand the attention of my sewing kit and wallet while I could be having fun. I would also like to suggest making the leg openings a bit narrower; I believe they would fit much better while wearing a climbing harness and create less potential for wardrobe malfunction.

Not as good as before

I've been purchasing Patagonia Baggie shorts since the late 80s. At times the quality has been better and other times not at good. I purchased my most recent pair of 5" baggies because one of the pairs in bought a few years ago did not have a rear pocket big enough to fit even the smallest iPhone. Although I appreciate that this material ... Read Moreis recycled nylon and is free trade sewn, the interior liner is way to big to be functional if one is interested in not wearing underwear. The length of the shorts is actually getting longer as well. I also don't like the internal drawstring which is like a flat shoe string; the rounded drawstring from earlier years was much better and more colorful. Finally, I don't see why there's a hanging loop (if that's what it is) on the inside of the right front pocket. The better place (IMHO) would be where the inside label is located (or to design the inside label so that it could function as a hanging loop. I would hope that you would offer more of the shorts with 5" inseams and it would be great to have some travel shorts with zippers for the pockets. I will continue to be a supporter of Patagonia but I'm disappointed that you're continually changing the country in which your clothes are produced. It seems like every time you do, the quality changes. Some of us would like to know that we could get the same quality and the same commitment to the environment every time we purchased a product from Patagonia. I wish you continued success with your products.

Good, not great

I love these shorts. They're great quality and like the fact that the pockets run deep. They run true to size and stop right above the knee which are perfect in that aspect. The one thing that is stopping me from leaving five stars is that the lining in the middle of the shorts run lower than I'd prefer which prevents me from having full ...

Pockets way too long

The pockets go so far down that putting anything in them looks and feel ridiculous

These are great for women too!

I prefer the length and fit of these over the women’s styling. I inherited a pair from my husband and bought two more pairs pretty quickly. The 5” inseam provides great coverage. I wore them to the Y and the length was fine for core work on the floor. These are my go-to in the summer for casual wear. I don’t mind the liner but it could be cut out. ...

My husband's GO TO shorts

I bought my husband (a professional stay at home dad) two pairs of these and he rotates wearing them each day.

Perfect in every way

My outdoor fiend son loves these in Albuqerque and the Pacific Northwest!

Great for swimmers

I've been using Patagonia Baggies as a bathing suit for about 25-30 years. They are simply great.

Awesome - could be shorter

I love my baggies. I have a couple of pairs of old vintage baggies shorts from the 70s and 80s and while my first pair was a 5" inseam and I love them, I am anxiously waiting for the day when I can buy a new pair of 4" inseam baggies and wear them without my wife rolling her eyes at me. I have 5 pairs now, ranging from the 70s to new, and... Read More I love them all. (The new peach sherbet color is on point.) I originally bought them as a pair of backpacking shorts, but I quickly had to get more and they are now my every day shorts. As soon as I'm home from work, the baggies come out and on. Absolutely worth the eye rolls.

The omnipotent 5 inch baggies

I now have 10 pair of five inch baggies....I add 2 or 3 every year....they just won't wear out. I swim every day....chlorine in the pool has not faded or worn them down in any way. Indestructible, versatile, highly social depending on which loud color you're wearing, and for the money....worth every cent!!

Do it all short

At the bouldering gym, going for a swim in Lake Michigan, or just stopping into my local watering hole, these are the shorts I wear all summer. I especially like the drawstring closure for a secure fit as well as the corded loop sewn into the right pocket to keep my keys tethered.

May 8, 2019

Best shorts I own.

I love my baggies, they pair a nice classic style with great durability.

Great shorts

I used to have Patagonia baggies in the '90's when raft guiding in Colorado, I am very pleased to have found the product again. Nice styling and comfortable materials make it my got to shorts.

Men's Baggies

Extremely comfortable and bulletproof. Almost indestructible and yet feel light and breezy.

Good Shorts

I used them for hiking to and swimming at some beaches and they did well. They have an internal mess, but I would recommend wearing a layer underneath them for hiking to prevent chaffing. They run on the bigger side. I was between sizes and went up, but wish I had gone down. Also, the side pockets are gigantic.

Love these shorts

I prefer the men's version of these shorts. They just fit my middle-aged old lady body better. As a bonus my husband and I trade off on them when backpacking. We both love them.

Baggies Waistband

I have worn these shorts every day for three decades. I have noticed that the tension of the elastic waistband has declined.

My suggestion is to u... Read Morese an elastic drawstring to allow individual tension adjustment.

Sadly, patagonia quality has decreased

These shorts WERE the best, now inferior quality and it shows. They don't stay up even when the drawstring is tied. Pockets too long and put stuff in the pockets and they sag. The drawstring has cheapened, the elastic does not last. Too bad Patagonia has trashed a great product - the almighty dollar (make more profit) is in charge, once again....

Run big

I'm a size 30 waist and usually wear a small (in most shorts and the older baggies). However, this new version runs big. The earlier baggies were shorter, had a snug liner, and fit trimmer in the waist. I sized down to an XS and they fit perfectly now. Other than sizing, the baggies are great. Durable all around short.

PHENOMENAL SHORTS

These shorts are the most comfortable shorts I've ever owned! A lot of people have complained about the mesh liner, but I honestly don't notice it when I'm wearing them. The only gripe I have with these shorts are the overly large pockets, but that's more of a personal preference thing. I am 6'2 with long, womanly legs, and... Read More a '30 waist (for reference).

Great can be better

Used for years, Baggies wear like iron. Pockets well designed not to "scoop' water. However... (1). Mesh pockets: Way too fine not to trap coarse sand body whomping.

Good All-Around Shorts

Really comfortable shorts, pretty much all purpose (can swim in them easily). Personally, I cut the mesh out because I usually wore them with boxers and it was unnecessary. Another minor complaint is that the side pockets are pretty deep (so I just used the back pocket for my phone/wallet). The length is perfect.

February 5, 2019

Great shorts, but....

I’ve had these shorts for about 4 years now and have loved them. However, over time, the elastic in the waistband is practically gone even with only moderate wear. It’s unfortunate that the elastic goes out so quickly in this product. However, overall, they’re an exceptional product!

February 2, 2019

Best All-around Shorts

Amazing value in a pair of shorts that you can literally do anything and everything in. Extremely comfortable, looks great, and drys fast. This has been my go to for any trips we've taken near bodies of water or just being outside in the warm weather in general.

Elastic lasted less than one year in one pair; other pair separated in the seat.

Years ago, I bought a pair of these, and they were awesome. Lasted for years and the only reason I don't have them anymore is that I lost them in the San Francisco airport. I bought two new pairs, and the quality has declined quite a bit. The elastic in one pair has stretched from a small size to a large, and the seam in the other separated, c... Read Moreausing a rip.

Used to be great, but no longer

I've been wearing Baggies for many years as swimsuits in saltwater and swimming pools but the recent iterations have serious quality control issues.

Run big

I ordered these for my husband and they're great shorts! You can tell the material is worth the cost and I wouldn't be surprised if they lasted years. He really likes them, the only problem is they run a bit big. I would advise you to size down or maybe even two if you're small.

My Go to Shorts

Whether I'm going to the gym, the pool, hiking, biking, or running, these shorts are what I wear! They are so functional and dry out well.

Favorite warm weather shorts

I wore these all summer. Long hikes, trail running, water sports, anytime, these are great . The lining is comfortable and has enough room to move within. Pockets even on the 5” have enough room where my iPhone 7 Plus won’t fall out when I sit down .

What was Patagonia thinking.....pockets on Baggie Shorts M7 way to deep

I own several pairs of Baggy shorts purchased over the years....my go-to casual shorts. The 2018 shorts have pockets that go the the bottom hemline....a whopping 3" deeper than the previous versions.

Solid Versatile Shorts

These shorts are the best. I use them for wake boarding, fishing, sports, and pretty much everyday life. Pockets are roomy enough to fit anything you need. I love how they lay flat and dry quickly.

Pockets too long

the pockets go to the very end of the pants, which makes it hard to reach and increases the distance your stuff gets flung around with each step

The best shorts on the planet

The Platonic form of shorts. I wear 'em all summer,for absolutely everything. You'll never hear me say,'sure,I just need to change quick' in the summer,because these shorts do it all. Plus I've had pairs for years that have been worn & beaten,and they look exactly like the new pair I just bought.

Superior Blue is an outstanding color and as another review stated,the key loop is a great feature. Also,I find the back pocket perfect for my wallet or cash. I highly recommend these shorts for your next adventure,whether that is a trip to the market or around the world!

Baggies short

bought these shorts because they are Patagonia and I've been satisfied with other Patagoia items. The shorts fit fine and the quality is outstanding. However,the liner inside the shorts is FAR to loose,to the point that I feel like I'm going to expose myself and need to wear underwear. Patagonia missed the mark on the liner.

May 23, 2018

Too big!

I was expecting something "baggie" but this go beyond,we could save that extra polyester. I was expecting a shorter short,not a same large different inseam short,it is a nonsense. Great pockets by the way.

Nice Shorts

Just got my pair today,but I'm certain I'll be putting plenty of miles on 'em. They're very comfortable and fit as expected. Went with the Yurt Yellow color and they look great. Only gripe is the mesh liner,I decided to cut them out of my pair. They are little pricey,but worth it!

Changes for 2018?

Just got a new pair of Yurt Yellow baggies. They are about 1/2" longer than past years - just enough to be noticeable.

In the past,it was sewn between the linin... Read Moreg and the shell - this is my umpteenth pair of baggies and until I received this pair,I wasn't aware that there was a tag.

Incredible versatility

These shorts have a very flattering look. They are minimalistic,but still offer an impressive amount of versatility. My favorite thing about these shorts are the pockets.

I can certainly appreciate the thought put into this product. I also run and cycle so my thighs are thick and muscular.
