Bring Back the old Baggies!
I am a die-hard Patagonia fan, and have been wearing baggies for 30 years now. I regularly wear some baggies that are 20 years old and just keeping trucking. However, the last couple of Baggies I have purchased are not nearly as durable, nor as high quality as my old one. I typically only get 2 years, maybe 3 out of the more modern pairs. The moder... Read Moren liner (recycled) is not durable at all, and rapidly gets holes and renders them indecent. Also, the modern elastic in the waist and the thighs is also quite fragile. Let's hope a better material can be found so they begin to last as long as the old stuff. I hate steadily returning and recycling my shorts after just a couple years.
Wish the elastic would last longer
Love these shorts and have had several pairs over the last 7 years or so. However, I wear them daily in the summer running and swimming, and I only seem to get 2-3 years out of them before the elastic waistband stretches out so much they donstay up unless the waistband string is tied. I feel like you pay too much for these to only get 2-3 years out... Read More of them. Overall though great short for running and swimming.

The Perfect Shorts
I am on my 6th pair of Patagonia 5' baggies and they truly are the best shorts ever made. I have worn them everywhere: climbing, skydiving, the JMT, surfing, bodysurfing, the pool, concerts, and just around the house. They are amazingly comfortable but the lining does take some getting used to. I think it is worth giving them some time to adju... Read Morest and I prefer to keep mine in. The pockets are huge which is always a plus. I am 6'2ish and hover around 195 pounds with an athletic build and a large fits me perfectly. I was wearing a medium before but I tried sizing up and that was a smart move, I suppose I was hitting my squats too much. As long as Patagonia keeps creating funny designs I will continue to buy these shorts. I could not recommend them more.
Great water shorts
I guide and wear the Patagonia baggies which keep me cool on the hot days and dry really quick when I get them wet getting in and out of the water. I like that they come in shorter sizes which is nice on cooler days so they dont get wet in shallow water. The shorts have a soft inner lining which never itches wet or dry.
I love these shorts. I call them my Adventure Shorts because they're perfect for whatever kind of day. Hanging around the house? Amazing. Walking the dog? Awesome. Hiking 15 miles? No problem. Only thing is they can't handle much in the pockets or they'll ride down, but they're so worth it :)
My go to shorts!
The Patagonia baggies are easily the best shorts out there if you're looking for multipurpose use! I wear mine all the time.

5 Inch Baggie is My Favorite
I have had both the 7 inch and 5 inch baggies, and I much prefer the 5 inchers for the daily walks and hikes I do here in Santa Barbara.

5" Inseam Heavy Hitters Clean Look, Super Comfy
I bought these after hearing about them on a podcast called throwing fits. I was looking to upgrade from a pair of cheap ones I snagged a few years back that were coming apart. These are soft, and super comfy, I usually blow the brains out (cut the mesh lining) but I haven't done that with these since the liner is unobtrusive even when wearing... Read More boxer shorts or briefs underneath. They dry quickly and can double as swim trunks easily. Great shorts to pick up for the summer and for general activity around the house or the great outdoors. The inseam is short and the fit is modern without being too baggy. I am a slim 5'11" and weigh around 67Kg with a 30" waist and bought a size small which fits perfectly. They are very well made and did show some excellent moisture wicking as droplets of water beaded right off the short even after the first wash.
I have three pairs (black, gray, and navy) and alternate between them most days of the week. Incredibly comfortable and durable enough to handle playing with my kids, working on the house, camping, working from home, etc. I waited around 10 months for my size to come in stock, which was the only downside as I could have been living in these sooner....

Best shorts ever
Bought these as a hiking short and they ended up becoming my all-around short.

What is going on here?
Its odd, I have been doing business with Patagonia since its inception. I believe the baggie 5" have been around since the mid 1980's and for me, they exemplify perfection! Its the absolute one "go to" that gets packed for someone who spends time on the land and sea. A pocket that snaps closed, a key loop that defies any attempt... Read Mores to come undone, fairly quick drying, but above all real comfort for all activities! So for 35 years they have been the "One" For All!" So why pray tell why would you attempt to redesign perfection? I heard I was in the minority in my disdain for the new design. But, I literally couldn't hike with them without them binding on my quadriceps. Even getting up from guitar practice they would bind. HERESY I screamed. Of course, I will always be a loyal customer. Patagonia exemplifies the model companies should follow in this age of environmental degradation. And the iron glad guarantee...well we all know that it rocks! I wanted the stand up 5" as well, but I know that 7" wouldn't work for my femur length! Oh worries me what's a lad to do? If Patagonia is failing me, I think its a dire warning for the future of our Water Planet!
From the first touch, great fabric weight, soft and comfortable interior mesh - one of my favorite features of this type of short, and what a happy color and design. All of these features, and more, are why I continue to get my clothes at Patagonia. I appreciate the thoughtful sourcing and design. Well done. See you out there. Michael
These shorts are ok: good durable fabric and relatively comfortable. The pockets are poorly designed. First, they cut the bottoms off at an angle with the mesh drainage bit on the upper diagonal. The first result is that items in the pocket (phone, wallet) sit at annoying angles. The second is that stuff other than water you want leaving the pocket... Read More (e.g. sand while body surfing) will settle in the non-mesh bottom of the pocket, defeating the purpose of the drainage mesh. Second, the pockets are too long-they run to the bottom of the short. The result is that items "bounce" on the thigh above the knee. This is a classic and annoying long dumb cargo short problem. The pockets are nice, deep and secure, but they could be so about 2" higher on the thigh with a flat mesh bottom. Do that and you've got a great pair of shorts.
Response from PatagoniaSeptember 29, 2021
Thanks for the feedback on the pockets Kyle. We'll pass it along to our design team.
I have several of these shorts, which I use for casual wear and working out. My one complaint is that you don't carry enough of the popular colors, so I've had to settle for a second or third choice, or not ordered.

Durable but Odd Fit
I use these shorts mostly for water activities (SUP, canoeing, kayaking). They are durable and quick drying and I like the pockets. What I do not like as much is the overall fit of the shorts. I realize they are designed to be baggy but the height of the crotch seems excessive. (The waistband of the XS rests well above my navel and I'm 6'... Read More1". Wearing the shorts at a more natural hip level causes the brief to sag and be unsupportive.) To alter the fit I sew a seam across the liner, about 2" from the bottom of the brief. This still allows for a relaxed fit stops the brief from sagging.
Favorite pair of shorts
These 5" Baggies are my favorite pair of shorts that I have ever bought. I shamelessly wear one of three pairs I own pretty much everyday throughout the summer. Personally I have found that these shorts fit best one size smaller than most other athletic/hiking shorts I have worn. My only complaint is that they are not made in a forest green t...

I find that some of the more flashy colors I would only want as a bathing suit rather than as a multifunctional pair of shorts. Please, Patagonia, make the forest green color happen like you have in some of your other pants and shorts selections.

Close to Perfect
Loved the shorts, length is nice and material is durable. Fits true to size and in the water they wont pull off.

Baggies need to evolve
I bought My first pair of Baggies shorts in the 80's and I had many pair. I backpacked, climbed, ran, kayaked & swam in them. Then I stopped wearing them for whatever reason. But I recently ordered them and remembered the reason. The mesh lining is uncomfortable. I have other shorts that have a Lycra liner (like bike/yoga shorts). They now...

Great shorts, but...
These are great and I have several pairs, but be warned that if you stretch too much the stitching holding the side pockets to the outer fabric can break, and, if this happens, you have a gaping hole in the pocket that your things can fall through (this has happened to two pairs of mine). I recommend the pocket be constructed as a self-enclosed uni...

My WFH workwear
Ever since WFH restrtictions began in late March 2020, I have been wearing my baggies (one blue, one gray) in my home office, Monday thru Friday. After repeated washings, they look and fit just like new. I might need a new pair with some print on them, just to add a bit more color into my office attire!
Too tight on the thighs

Hey Erika, thanks for the review on the Baggies Shorts - 5". We're sorry it didn't end up working out. If you'd like to exchange for a size up or return, please click [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
My son wore these all summer as a counselor and found them to be comfortable and stylish. He is 18, 5-10 and 172lbs. He says the shorter 5 inch inseam is the style these days. I think he likes to show off his quads! He has them in 2 colors. He does not like the lining so he cuts it out. These are a huge hit!!
The BLACK ones are cut differently
We need to address the fact that the black baggies are cut very differently from all the other colors. I love baggies. I've had a pair I still use for 30 years. They are black. The new black ones are not only cut differently than the new ones but also my old pair. The front fabric is too restrictive and bunches up. You can see it in the produc... Read Moret photo on REI. The 30 year old black pair are not like this. Neither are my Blue ones. It's just the black ones. Patagonia can you please look into this? The black ones are the best looking ones. I usually wear large in every color of baggies except the black ones. In the black ones the legs are restrictive and tight and the waist is perfect. So I have to buy an XL, then the waist is too big but the legs are good. There is a female reviewer who mentions it also somewhere. My wife has the exact same problem. She has multiple colors and it's only the black ones that are cut weird for her.

I love baggies, these purple obese were no exception. Theyre great for casual wear, hiking, and Ive even biked in them. One tiny complaint is how it can be hard to take things out of the pockets because of the small opening and my pair came with a small fray on the stitching. But all in all great shorts!
Awesome design and it fits great which is why I always buy patatgonia, when I order something I know it will be great quality and a great fit.

Best shorts ever!
I bought these for my son who is hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. Baggies are his favorite thing to hike in. He started his hike in an extra large but now that he is over half way done he lost so much weight he needed a smaller pair. In his opinion Patagonia Baggies are the best shorts ever! .
Not exactly true to size
I love the color and materials but the sizing is off by I'd say almost two sizes . I most of the time but north face shorts so I'd figure I'd give these a try as I heard good reviews. But when I tried on they were a bit on the snug side . My advice go a size up if you can . If you are already a 2X avoid buying or loose weight :))

Great quality, great fit
I found the fit to be a little awkward when I first tried them on, but I quickly grew to love them. I think this is because they don't stretch. However, the cut leaves plenty of room for a good range of motion without looking too big/sloppy. Love them. Will probably buy more in other colors.
The quality of these shorts, constructed from recycled materials, is excellent. The 5" medium short is a little baggy on me, but they are, after all, called "baggies".

Pickle Ball Shorts - bring on the sweat
These shorts are perfect for my two and a half hour pickleball sessions. With high temperature and humidity, I need shorts that don't hold onto the moisture. The nylon does the trick. I have always used my Baggies for all water sports. The new use makes them indispensable .
I have had these shorts for some some 25 years. I am still wearing the original ones I bought, but the newer ones don't have the same fit and material. The most recent ones feel a couple of inches longer than the old ones and are also a lot looser in the waist.

They fit a little baggy, which can be good if thats what your looking for. Overall comfortable with super deep pockets which are great. They meet my usual expect... Read Moreations for Patagonia.
Fun colors but leg opening too big
I am a 32 waist and usually a M but the M was too big so I got a S. Even with the S the leg opening is about 2-3 inches bigger than most of the similar shorts I have. This results in extra fabric between the legs bunching up and flapping around. But I like the colors enough that I am keeping a couple pairs and having the legs tapered 2 inches by a ...

Thanks for your feedback, Shawn! The Baggies design has been a classic since 1982. If you're looking for nylon shorts without a liner, we recommend Guidewater, Quandary, MOC or Wavefarer Shorts. Please reach out to [Customer Service](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) if you have any questions!
Excellent shorts for nearly everything
These things are so comfortable whether Im lounging around the house, swimming, or even out for a hike. The mesh basket is also soft enough where you dont get irritated after wearing them for a whole day. The pockets are waaay bigger than I would have thought, and theyre just awesome shorts. Worth every penny.
Best Shorts Ever!
Love these shorts, they are the most comfortable shorts I have ever had. The material is sturdy, the fit is spot on. Even though they are called Baggies, they don't seem baggy and don't get in your way when moving. These shorts are lined so easily can function as swim trunks and the drawstring in the waist keeps them in place. I bought on... Read Moree pair and liked them so much I immediately ordered another. I plan to buy more once the colors I want are back in stock.
Fits kinda small
I wanted the purple baggies 5 inch for almost a year it was sold out. Finally got it. Im a little disappointed. Im usually a medium, in shorts. These run kinda small, I wish I knew the fit first. Well Im not sure to return it now. But over seems like pretty cool shorts. Im not a fan of the liner. But hey each is own.

Thanks for the feedback. You're welcome to return them if you'd like. Take care.
These are great shorts but the lining is a disaster. Way too loose, leaving a visible bulge in front. Adopt the lining from your Nine Mile shorts and youll have perfection and Ill buy every color.
