Patagonia Men's Baggies™ Shorts - 5"

True To Size
July 21, 2021

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 :))

Good fit

Great fit I have big thighs and they surprisingly fit very well. They do ride up but other than that perfect.

July 21, 2021

Great swim trunks

I like these trunks a whole lot especially because they aren't long like board shorts. The crazy design is an added bonus. Comfy + durable like all Patagonia stuff.

July 21, 2021

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.

July 20, 2021

Baggies are the best!

Love love love the deep front pockets. And the key loop inside. The style is forever right. Why change what doesnt need changing after all. This will be my fourth pair. I still have and wear the other three. Highly recommended!

July 20, 2021

Overall great experience

Great price for a great product. Fit great. Huge pockets. Shipped and delivered very fast. 11/10 recommend

July 20, 2021


Great quality shorts

July 20, 2021

Good Quality

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". My only complaint is the mesh liner which gets uncomfortable on my man parts. For a liner, I would prefer a solid material rather than mesh. I own three of these short... Read Mores in different colors, so obviously, I'm a satisfied customer.

July 20, 2021


Awesome shorts! Super comfortable. The only gripe I have is the leg width. I could probably fit a whole extra leg in there. I might size down on my next pair to see if it is different but after all they are called the Baggies. Love them though!!

July 19, 2021

Nice trunks

I used to buy the baggies lite short as my primary swim trunk and tried these out. They are comfortable and dry as fast as the lite. I find the fit a bit too large, particularly the width of the legs. I wondered if I should have bought a medium. Slimming that dimension down just a bit would make them perfect.

July 18, 2021

Very comfortable

Very nice looking , I'm only 5-3 and its perfect.

July 17, 2021

High quality

Really great shorts for the type of day when youre not exactly sure what youre gonna do. Youre prepared to go swimming in these, but theyre also stylish enough to just wear around. Nice material, nice pockets.

July 16, 2021

Great Shorts

I wear these all the time, have 2 pairs. If I order more, I'll probably try medium because the large are big on me. In probably 32 - 33 waist and 6'2

July 16, 2021

Perfect if you wear whitey tighties

These were the perfect hiking shorts you could wear in a restaurant, but, they have this bikini short lining that completely ruins the shorts.

July 16, 2021

Best all around shorts!

I own 6 pairs of these shorts with the first pair purchased 8 years ago. I live in a pair no matter what the activity all summer long. Whether Im swimming, hiking, camping, running or working out, my baggies are always ready. Material is rugged and dries fast. The built in liner is perfect and means I go sans undies from June to September in the no... Read Morertheast. No better short on the market!

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 .

July 15, 2021

Great shorts

Over all the shorts are awesome. Super comfortable and breathable.

July 15, 2021

Best materials

Best shorts Ive ever purchased thanks!!!!

July 15, 2021

Great shorts!

I wear mediums for swim, larges for hiking and casual wear. You can wear them with or without bikini underwear and still feel comfortable and protected.

July 14, 2021

Nice shorts

Comfortable, fit well. Good purchase.

July 14, 2021

sizing issue

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.

Response from Patagonia
July 16, 2021

Thanks for your feedback! Our Baggies are very similar to how we have made them for nearly 40 years, but recently we switched the fabric to 100% recycled nylon, and that may be what you're noticing. If the new shorts are not working for you, please reach out to our Customer Service team to return them. We'll be happy to [help](!

Go anywhere do anything shorts

If I was stuck on an island with only one article of clothing it would be a pair of baggies. Comfy, breathable, fast drying.

July 14, 2021

fast drying

Don't care for draw string, prefer the old round one.

July 13, 2021

Everything I wanted in a short

Its light, its comfortable, the mesh is really useful if youre a guy who likes a breeze, its truly a dream short. Feels pretty sturdy but with the guarantee I dont really mind it its not indestructible. The colors are choice, the pockets are deep. Although, I wonder why theres a little elastic loop in one pocket. For your keys Im guessing? I get my...

Great Short, just too big

Fantastic shorts. I do not know why companies even bother with liners, but they were no match for my trusty pocket knife. Just wear your fav undies and call it a day. Now I know the shorts are literally called Baggies, but they're real baggy. These shorts definitely run larger. I have a 33-34 waist and can fit into my roommate's small a... Read Morelthough my preferred size is Medium. If you're in between sizes, definitely order the smaller option.

July 12, 2021

Comfy, many uses

I love all my patagonia stuff and these shorts are no exception. Durable, comfortable, and they look good. The opposite of fast fashion and wasteful trends. These will last for many years I'm sure.

July 12, 2021

Baggie Shorts

Good pair of shorts. Use them for many different activities.

July 11, 2021

Perfect Short

It took me a while to pull the trigger and get a couple pairs of these shorts. One hesitation was size; I tend to run between small and medium with Patagonia sizing and shorts are a hard thing to fit right. The other hesitation was color; all the cool colors were hard to come by. I finally got two pairs of Medium in some colors that are brighter th... Read Morean I normally wear. I am happy with the fit; the waist is a hair large for me (30 waist), but I just pull the draw strings and its good to go. One thing that surprised me was the toughness of the material. It feels rugged and long lasting. Its a little heavy for hiking and running for me, but they would work well for those activities for some folks. I will surely be purchasing more in the future in some toned down earthy colors.

July 11, 2021

Good swim trunks

These are great looking swim shorts- wish it had the boxer brief lining- Im concerned the mesh lining might stretch out- but REALLY like these.

Waist size does not match leg and mid area size

The waist on the smalls fit perfectly but the mid-area is too small. There is not a lot of mobility moving because the mid area and thighs catch when you sit or stretch. The size Medium waist was way to big but the legs and mid-area feel way better. Seems like a sizing issue when matching the waist size to the thighs/mid. I almost always wear mediu...

Swim shorts

Bought for my husband. Great fit and love the tie front. So good we bought 2 pairs!

Fun shorts

Since I lived in Galápagos for three months and absolutely love blue footed boobies I had to get these shorts. I was worried they would fit short on my legs but are definitely plenty long. 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]( 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.

July 8, 2021


Comfortable, look good, dry quickly, sturdy

July 7, 2021

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.

Great Product

Have been purchasing Patagonia products for over 30 years. They are truly the best - in both their products and philosophy. I would never think of purchasing from someone else. They are indeed 10 stars. Philip Kercher

July 7, 2021

Very comfortable

I very much enjoy the comfort and breathability of the shorts, and they look sick. Beware, however, that the pockets are very large and extend down to the bottom of the shorts. I dont mind but I think its important to note.

July 7, 2021

Patagonia baggies - great shorts

Great shorts XL works best for me 5 foot 10 inch 205 pounds. I also have L which is true to fit just not as baggie.

July 7, 2021

Top shelf fun hog shorts!

Picked up my first pair of baggies a few years ago and it was time to add some fun colors to the collection. Purple and red look great! Best all around swimming, biking, camping, relaxing in the backyard shorts ever. Get em!

July 6, 2021

Purple Baggie

I love these.

July 6, 2021

Style First!

Got three separate compliments on these shorts on the first day I wore them... so they look pretty good I guess. Very comfy, and worn them outdoor climbing, river swimming, hiking, you name it. Love my baggies.

July 6, 2021

Perfect shorts!

These are the best shorts! Easy to wear, breathable, comfy

July 6, 2021

Great, classic pair of trunks

5" is the perfect length. Booby design is great and was a topic of conversation. Really happy with my purchase!

July 6, 2021

Versatile Shorts

These shorts are great for pretty much anything, super durable, dries easily, comfortable and presentable. A little long for my personal preference, a 3 inseam version would be perfect. Aside from that no complaints about these shorts!

July 5, 2021

Better than womens

Im a woman with big hip, womens shorts are too shirt for me I feel like Im in underwear. This mens shorts is perfect, not too revealing feels comfortable. Just the fabric is a bit stiff

July 5, 2021

Great Shorts

Classic versatile shorts that work for nearly every occasion.

July 4, 2021

Great boating shorts

My husband and I are whitewater boaters (canoe/kayak/raft. We have worn these shorts for years. We love the mesh liner. I know they are mens shorts, but they are great for women too. I wear them casually as well.

July 3, 2021

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.

July 9, 2021

Thanks for the feedback. You're welcome to return them if you'd like. Take care.

July 2, 2021

They are baggy, baggy is good.

The elastic loop in the pocket is great for securing your keys. The back pocket snap keeps does the same for your wallet. Little things are what make these shorts great. They run kinda large-ish (they call them baggies for a reason!). Just buy them.

July 2, 2021


Never owned a Patagonia product before. The quality is great! Nice deep pockets too so your items wont fall out. I went down a size since reviews said it ran big. Fit was slightly snug but still breathable. I bought 3 different colors.

June 29, 2021

Horrible lining

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.

Vital summer gear

I like thousands of other people live in these shorts in the summer. Last count I had five pair. One thing that could be improved upon is the elastic in the waistband. the elastic gives out after three or four seasons. but no worries, Patagonia stands behind it. It's all good. Chore On

June 28, 2021

The best

Great shorts. I love baggies. Theyre my uniform for the summer - hiking, kayaking, swimming.

Baggies are great, but the liner is miserable.

After cutting out the liner, I love these shorts.

Sorry to hear that the liner wasn't working for you, Stacey. While this does void the warranty, we're very glad to hear that you love the shorts now!

The Legend but...

I bought a pair of these shorts after my wife and brother both rave about their baggies. I have found them comfortable and great to do just about anything in. However, the mesh lining that is included doesn't provide me with enough coverage to feel comfortable in without wearing underwear. Granted, that could just be me and I accept my insecur... Read Moreity in that area so take this as you will. Yet, the advancements that other companies have made with their mesh linings, or compression linings, leave me wanting more support or more coverage with these shorts. In the end, I still wear something underneath, so the mesh lining will likely get cut out at some point.

June 27, 2021

Good Quality

I have had two M baggie shorts years ago, but have gained weight. I should have ordered a L ,since the XL is a bit too large. However, the quality and look are great.

June 26, 2021


The shorts are exactly what I expected. Superb quality and design

June 26, 2021

My favorite shirt!

These are my sons favorite shorts. Because the waist is elastic, size small was perfect.

June 26, 2021


Best ever

June 26, 2021

Not like my old one

I miss the 4 inch baggies. Plus, this one is a medium and runs large. Hard to carry a phone without really cinching up the waist. Still, better than Beans.

June 25, 2021

Beach favorite

Earth friendly , abrasion resistant, quick drying warm weather body armor, highly recommended.

5 baggie shorts

Very comfortable and fast drying. I wish they were a bit more tailored. I wear them for tennis every week, 52 weeks of the year.

June 23, 2021


Ive been wearing Baggies since I bought my first pair thru LL Bean in the 80s. There have been tweaks and experiments (stretch Baggies?) but the only way Patagonia has been able to improve on them is by making Baggies Longs. Comfortable, sturdy and dependable. Theres really nothing more to say. Highly recommended.

June 22, 2021

Perfect Summer Shorts

Material is great, as is the fit.

June 21, 2021

King of the shorts

I just bought my second pair of baggies. The first pair I bought in 2013, wore for 4,000 miles of backpacking, countless swims, day hikes, runs, and house projects. I practically lived in them from spring to fall for eight years, theyre still fine by the way, I just wanted another pair for when I was doing laundry.

June 21, 2021

Best piece of clothing ever created

If I only could own one article of clothing, this would be it. You can do anything and everything with the baggies and at the same will hold up to any circumstance you throw at it. Comfortable, reliable, simple yet pretty stylish.

June 19, 2021

Nice Shorts

I like these shorts, the are good for both casual and swimming and hiking. If you do not like nets in the shorts you will have to cut them out is the only thing but I don't mind the nets personally.

June 18, 2021

Pockets are too big.

Dont get me wrong, the quality is great. The pockets on the front are huge. They are the entire front of the short so your wallet hangs to your knee. If you like that, you will love them. For me I just dont like my belongings hanging that low and for that I would not buy again. Everything else about them is great!

Baggies, what's not to like?

Warrantee replacement for a very well worn pair (thanks Patagonia!), same fit, drawstring is more of a tape than the original (circa 90's) string.

Best all-around short in the game

Love this short perfect for about any activity you enjoy. Except nudism.

June 17, 2021

Great Every Day Shorts

Super comfortable and great for any occasion. Pockets are extremely deep which at first was strange but I quickly got used to it. Could probably fit an entire tube of Pringles in there if you so desire. A must have for anyones wardrobe.

June 16, 2021

Love them but takes a day to get use too

I love the shorts. I bought 4 pairs within 2 weeks. The pockets are alittle tight in the groin area but deep enough that your phone can fit and wont fall out when your sitting, running or biking.

June 14, 2021

Super versatile

Been wearing baggies shorts for over 45 Years the best go to shorts ,would not wear anything else

June 14, 2021

Highly recommend

I purchased a size medium and a small to see which would fit better. The medium is a bit lose on me and the small is almost perfect. If they had a in between size thatd be great.

June 13, 2021

Great short but dont like sizing chane

I love the baggies! However, the sizing became bigger in the last year and the drawstring changed. I prefer the drawstring remain on the outside as in previous years. This, the 3 star review due to those two changes. Quality and functionality is superb!

June 13, 2021

Classic shorts

I bought these for my boyfriend in large and medium. The mediums were awesome.

June 12, 2021

Great all around shorts to own

I have always loved Baggies. I just bought my 4th pair, over a period of 7 years. I still have all the older pairs. All of them have held up very well. No rips, holes, stains, or worn out spots, on any. They are well well constructed, and designed with function in mind. I love the 5 inseam, as Im under 6 ft. So the shorter length works better with ... Read Moremy height. The 7 inseam is just to long for me.

June 12, 2021

Quality as always and blue footed boobies!

How can you go wrong wearing blue footed boobies? The fit is the usual for the baggies, and makes for more fun runs!

June 12, 2021


Great look and fit, better company.

June 12, 2021

Great Multipurpose short

Great for running, swimming, back yard and even ok to run an errand in. Deep pockets and snap pocket keep a key, ID, or other bits safe. Dries quickly.

June 12, 2021

Comfortable, durable, and versatile

Best pair of shorts Ive ever owned

June 12, 2021

Title fits

I like these shorts a lot. I like that there are a ton of options to choose from. They fit really well and the length is perfect. One thing I do not like is that there is no option of the same shorts but without the liner in them.

June 11, 2021


Very solid all around pair of shorts. I have two pairs in two sizes, a large and a medium, the large works great for hiking yoga and just about anything you can imagine. The medium works great for swimming and other stuff where youd want a slightly tighter fit. You wont regret getting these shorts

June 11, 2021

Super comfortable and stylish

The shorts are very comfortable. They are very light and you can stretch any way when wearing them. The only downside is that the pockets seams are tricky to get into.

June 10, 2021

A Classic in need of an update

Let me start out by saying--I REALLY wanted to like my pair of Baggies. I'm a 30 size waist and went with the size guide to choose a small. I have large, athletic thighs though, and while the waist fits, there's not a lot of give in the thighs, constricting mobility. When just standing, it's fine, but walking around, sitting, squatti... Read Moreng, or really any movement, it squeezes my leg from the sides in a not so comfortable way. If I hadn't removed the tags and walked around in them to test them out; I would have returned it to try a medium, but I feel like then the waist would be way too baggy/billowy. I really wanted to like these, but the lack of mobility and way it restricted my movement would lead me to buy other alternatives with 4-way stretch. If I get another opportunity to buy/exchange these for a medium, I'll give them another shot.

I take my two dogs Bronx and Charli to the doge park everyday and these shorts have plenty of pocket space for treats and poop bags. Much versatile, MUCH WOW!

June 4, 2021

Add zipper pockets!

I own more than one pair and these shorts look better on me than any other pair I own, I just find myself on fishing and hiking adventures wearing a different brands pair that have zipper side pockets and no liner. 5 baggies the best looking swimsuit tho and to wear around town. If they had side zippers would be 5 star.

Best, Everyday Short

These shorts are my go-to for general activities and errands. I own these shorts in three colors, and I would purchase more if they also came in stretchier fabrics.

Look and feel great

Love these shorts overall, only one minor complaint: the pockets are very deep, the deepest of any short Ive ever worn.

May 20, 2021

Fit is really nice

I really like these shorts especially due to the 5-inch inseam that sits higher on the leg above the knee. Also, you can use the shorts for almost any activity.

Deeeeeep pockets

That's all, super comfy but best of all they have the pockets you can shove your whole hand in and more!

I really love these shorts. I cut the lining out of them and use them as a light hiking short, paired with briefs.

May 18, 2021

Great fit but one big design flaw

These shorts are great and I love the fit. My only issue is because the pockets go all the way to the bottom of the shorts, if you put anything in them it anchors the shorts down.

The best short!

Cant say enough about these shorts. Comfortable, well made, and stylish. Wear them around the house, on the trail, and around town!

Holy f**k. Baggies could replace all my other clothes. I dont even need shirts or underwear, NOTHING. These shorts are the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. I want every single color. Best. Shorts. Ever.

Perfect in every way.

Great quality and perfect fit -- the best shorts I've ever owned.

May 16, 2021

perfect classic

i repeatedly buy these and wear them very often please keep the fit the sameand continue to offer wide range of colors and patternsappreciate that some of nylon is recycled

New Baggies

Great looking shorts, produced in an environmentally friendly way.

May 16, 2021

Great fit

Great for walking around when not swimming. Also, comfortable when swimming.

May 16, 2021


I bought the medium baggies for swimming; I bought the large baggies for casual. They both are perfect.

May 15, 2021

As expected

Great as always

May 15, 2021

Great Product

I love the feel and look of these shorts. They dry quickly in the event you chose to take a swim. The only negative is the liner. The leg openings want to slide down which is a bit uncomfortable. Patagonia should either make the leg openings a bit smaller or, eliminate the liner and you can chose to wear your favorite underwear or go commando!

Great hiking shorts!

I am a 52 woman who finds the fit of the mens baggy shorts With elastic waist,to be perfect. They are simple, well-made, loose and perfect for hiking and other outdoor activities. 3 Low profile pockets that are perfect for putting a cell phone etc. into. Im so glad I tried some shorts on in the mens section.

May 14, 2021

Good over all short

I wear these every day in the summer. they are super comfy the only issue I have with them is they arent great for Lou tian biking. Too baggy so they get stuck on the seat and stuff.

May 14, 2021

The best shorts

The best shorts, great for biking and yoga, but also quick drying and great for surfing. Comfortable, short, and baggy but you johnson doesn't hang out.

Very good

These shorts are indeed quite epic. They are good shorts.

May 11, 2021

Love the baggies

Started with a large but exchanged for Medium. First Medium anything I've written in years

May 8, 2021

Best all around shorts

These are my go to shorts for just about anything. I have a pair with the mesh in just to keep things from floating away when swimming, and then I cut the mesh out of 3 other pairs that I use as knockaround shorts. Super durable, super comfortable, colors are awesome. Buy one or 3 and be happy.

May 8, 2021

If it ain't broke, don't fix it

5" baggies have been a staple of my wardrobe for 25 years with little in the way of updates or improvements - and that's a good thing. Some changes to the liner or cordage in the waist band have been fine but recently someone decided to move the tags from the lower back to the front left hip - where it now is a constant source of irritati...

So Comfortable

I just bought my second pair because I wore my first pair all last summer and loved them. I can wear them to town, swim in the river, and play pickleball in these shorts.

May 7, 2021

Super Warm

I have a 31 inch waist and the medium was a little too big for my liking. I bought the small and love them, wearing them around the house, outside, and for hiking and biking. Highly recommend!

May 6, 2021

Weird sizing

I bought the M size but they we too snug on the legs and eggs. No way could I execute a roundhouse kick without tearing my Baggies asunder.

Too small or too big

I started w the medium but they were a little snug in the legs and the male private area- no way I could throw a roundhouse kick lest my Baggies be torn asunder.

May 4, 2021

great all around shorts

I have been wearing baggies for working out, hiking, and casual wear for decades. I give them as gifts and they always get rave reviews.

May 1, 2021


I started wearing these baggies 30 years ago when i worked on sailboats - in and out of the water 9 months of the year. Now, semi retired, again in and out of the water 9 months out of the year. These remain perfect shorts for me. Thanks for continuing to make a great product

April 30, 2021


Very very nice short

April 30, 2021

The best

Not much can be said that hasnt been said before. These are a classic and perform as a classic piece should. There are imitators out there but nothing better. These are a summer go to pair of shorts that you should definitely add to the arsenal.

April 30, 2021

Great shorts

I got a large and it was too baggie for my taste. I returned them for a medium and they are my favorite shorts now!

April 29, 2021

Best Summer Shorts Around

Perfect length, super deep pockets, and mesh on the pocket bottoms to reduce drag in water. The best summer shorts Ive owned. Fast drying material too

April 29, 2021

Super warm

Great short durable last forever and well-made Only complaint put tag in the back of short not in front near drawstring

April 28, 2021

Little bit long

The size itself was great nice fit for me (32 waist) the only complaint I have is the length. I personally prefer shorter shorts, and was expecting them to be more towards my center thigh. That's my only complaint it would probably look better if I was taller.

April 26, 2021

Now i know whats the hype is all about

Im usually size 30 in everything yet decided to go on 29 opting for a regular fit, fits me ok. Durable material but still allow for breathability (not much).

I own 7 different Patagonia baggies and use them for literally everything. I live in Florida so they are great for that weather.

All around good buddies.

I purchased a pair of royal blue Baggies in 5 length about four years ago for an upcoming hike on the AT. Since then, they have been on five multi-day section hikes on the AT for over 200 miles, they have been worn kayaking, fishing, working out, driving range, to the beach on four trips.

They have become like a friend and I always feel like they need to be with me on any adventure. Although they are a bit faded and a little softer i have no doubt they will outlive me.

April 23, 2021

Very Versatile

Great shorts that I wear all the time in spring, summer, and fall. Sadly, the seam in my first pair's seams in the pocket ripped during COVID so I was unable to send them back to Patagonia for replacement... So had to stitch it up myself. Love that they aren't warming and they also dry quickly from water/sweat.

Perfecto Rio Shorts

I love these shorts for running the rio, when it's hot. They dry super fast and they're so comfortable you could only be more so, if you were naked!

April 20, 2021

The perfect shorts

Probably the most comfortable shorts out there even with the inner lining. So comfortable that I bought 2 other pairs in different colors. Material is lightweight and great for almost any outdoor activity.

April 20, 2021

Favorite Dual Purpose Short

This is my third pair, just getting a new color. Comfy, simple, multi-functional and durable. I love the 5s but if you want length closer to knee fo 7s

April 19, 2021

Good everyday short, runs a little wide/large

These shorts are maybe one of Patagonia's most popular items of all time. They also have a lot of hype surrounding them regarding their place in the world of fashion. They're loved by hikers, runners, swimmers, pink Polo-wearing bros, Dads, normcore crowds, and celebs and rappers alike. However, I feel the hype surrounding these shorts ... Read Moreis just that -- hype. At then end of the day, they're just a pair of shorts -- albeit, well-made. For me, they're a bit too wide in the leg. I like my pants and shorts to be a bit more fitted (not tight/skinny, just fitted), and with the Baggies, at certain angles, I feel like it looks like I'm wearing a skirt. The size guide for a medium says the waist is 31-33. I am a hard 32, pushing 33. But right out of the gate, these were a little loose. I have to tie the drawstring pretty tight for them to feel snug. I've sized down to a small. The crotch is a little tight, but the waist and legs feel more fitted. Also, the pockets on these shorts are HUGE. They're not only wide, but deep. Anything that goes into them (phone, keys, etc.) ends up falling way to the bottom of the thigh and flops around uncontrollably. Still giving them 3/5 stars because they are well made, simplistic, and somewhat affordable. But I wouldn't be mad if Patagonia came out with a "slim" version one day with smaller pockets.

April 18, 2021

Deeper pockets

This all-time favorite just got even better with deeper pockets and a plastic loop inside the right pocket for hooking up keys.

April 16, 2021

good shorts, slightly weird sizing. I know they're baggies

Mediums fit well for a 31-33 waist but legs are too small and large is good for legs but waist is way too big. My legs aren't exactly big either. Cutting net out is first thing you should do when buying other than slight size issues the shorts are amazing and should last for a long time.

Response from Patagonia
April 17, 2021

Thanks for the detailed feedback on the way your baggies fit. By cutting out the liner you void the warranty on that area of the garment. If you're looking for other board shorts with no liners you might check out the [Men's Stretch Wavefarer® Volley Shorts](

April 13, 2021


I purchased baggie shorts in Large. They are a little on the loose side. I have other baggies I have purchased in the past that were large and fit fine.

April 12, 2021

Best shorts ever

I bought these for my son who is tall and thin. He absolutely loves the fit and I love the durability!!! We bought several pairs and would definitely recommend

April 11, 2021


One of my favorites everyday shorts. Deep pockets, great quality, and love the key loop. Perfect sizing too, I definitely recommend!

These shorts are so perfect for use in daily life. They dry fast, have a good quality fabric, and come in all the right colors. I'll be getting more, thanks Patagonia!

Best Shorts Ever

Like no gonna lie or sugar coat it, but these pants slap. Never have I ever felt so comfortable without boxers in a pair of pants like these.

Pockets are not great

The pockets go the full length of the shorts, which is not what I was expecting. It makes it a little uncomfortable to have your phone all the way at the bottom of your shorts.

I have 8 pairs of 5 baggies. I wear them most weekends from the ocean to the mountains and everywhere in between. Highly recommend for any activity you think they might be good for, and far more durable than any similar articles I own.

March 27, 2021

Win win shorts

5 baggies are probably the most comfortable do it all shorts out there. theyve been my go to shorts since 1992? when I got my first pair. Great for hiking, swimming, around town, you name it. I love the grey color the past few years. If I could make one request it would be more earth tone colors. Keep up the good work!

March 26, 2021

Men's baggie shorts

I use these shorts for senior swimming aerobics, in a warm salt water pooling Olympia WA, I have had many of your baggies, great product. Only shortcoming is the fade quickly in the pool water.

March 26, 2021

Great Swim Trunks

I am in the pool 3-4 times weekly and these are my favorite swimming trunks. The chlorine can be a little hard on them-they fade after a few months but the durability is great.

March 26, 2021

Lighter colors are see-through!

I love Patagonia Baggies - I own probably 5 or 6 pairs. I recently ordered the 'Jellyfish Yellow' colorway (I'm really into that yellow-lime green color right now) knowing it was risky because colors on a screen don't always represent the actual color well, and it turns out I was right to worry - in real life, it's more of ... Read Morean anemic highlighter yellow color. This might not be that big a deal on its own, but it's also so light that it's see-through (which the picture online doesn't show at all!). It's not even about wearing the right colored undergarments - the built in liner is dark grey and shows through the yellow outer fabric regardless of what color your underwear is. 4 stars because the shorts are great and fit well, but sadly this color is a miss.

March 26, 2021


Best piece of sports clothing I have ever owned. Thats why I keep on repurchasing year after year.

March 26, 2021

Baggy, rugged, comfortable

These are the go-to hang out around the house shorts, or the go-to trail runners. I have yet to try them in the water but Id sure theyre fantastic. Pockets are massive, your phone might fly out on a run. 10/10

March 25, 2021

Utilitarian and Versatile

Shorts that feel like they'll last for years!

March 25, 2021

Classic shorts, good for anything!

A great pair of shorts. Perfect for lounging, working out, or hanging at the beach. The only thing it needs is a smaller, dedicated cell phone pocket. The pockets are very large and deep, and my cell is always flopping around when I wear these. Otherwise, highly recommend!

Best Shorts Out There

I've been wearing these shorts for five years now. They have replaced all workout shorts for me and my khaki chino shorts are all but forgotten. I use these to lift weights, run, swim, and hike.

Moral of the story, these shorts have replaced all my other casual shorts and swimsuits. They Helped downsize my wardrobe.

They put up abuse from workouts, running, climbing, Spearfishing/fixing cars(working on pavement), surfing, thrown by waves, the works. I love the webbing in them. But I also dont wear chonies with these shorts. So, to each their own.

I wear these shorts all the time in Lake Tahoe during the summer! Swimming, Stand Up Paddle board, hiking, you name it!

Nice fit

Besides all the great colors the biggest reason I like buying shorts from Patagonia is all the options for lengths. I have a short inseam. And have a shorts so long they look like "manpris."

January 30, 2021

Cool Shorts

Shorts are kinda big and for me do not fit like 5 shorts, definitely fit more like 7. Maybe I couldve gone with an XL but the sizing and fit isnt the same as other workout shorts I wear - they actually fit kinda funny. I guess my body type doesnt quite work for these shorts very well.

Response from Patagonia
March 3, 2021

We're sorry that these didn't work out for you! The 5" and 7" are referring to the inseam on the short, there is potential they could look longer depending on how low on the waist they're worn. They're intended to sit mid-waist as shown on the product page. Our Baggies are day to day shorts, that work in and out of the water. While they could also function for work outs, that's not necessarily what they were intended for. If that's what you were looking for, we'd recommend checking out the [Men's Endless Run Shorts - 5"]( which are made for high output activity.

Need more room

I bought the Pink ones before and loved the fit . Went for a second pair in Purple but, they are cut slightly smaller then the Pink one. No Bueno!

December 10, 2020

Breathes, Nice for Summer

The fit is great, love the netting, allows you to wear it as swimwear or casual wear. Nice in spring for running, great in summer, breathes great through the netting. Runs a little large. If you're considering what size to get, I'd recommend sizing down. I'm 5'8 135, XS fits perfectly.

November 28, 2020

Time tested

I started wearing Baggies in 1985 and se no reason to switch. They last a long time and as I'm a Dive Instructor in Florida I am hard on my shorts. I will continue to wear them as long as they are still made as well as they have always been.

Indestructible and Machine Washable

Took them on a 20 mile hike and couldn't be happier. The mesh, built-in underwear is breathable and comfortable. I hopped in the lake and they dried what seemed like instantly.

Read Morenkle, and me deep muscle contusions and these babies did not even get a stretch mark. In my haste to go get help in the dark, I proceeded to fall off another 30ft cliff. I sustained a two torn MCL's, more muscle contusions, lacerations on my ankle down to the bone, and a concussion. Once again the Patagonia Baggies, held together by quality craftsmanship and top tier material, did not flinch. I was lost and spent the night buried deep in the dirt, so as to keep warm and conceal myself from mountain lions, and these top notch shorts didn't even come out dusty. My mental state held together only by the strength and superior comfort of these shorts, I finally made my way to help and got my friend a helicopter off the mountain. It took us several months of recuperation and physical therapy to heal from the traumatic experience. These bad boys, soaked in blood and mud, only required one quick wash and they were ready for the next hike (in a couple years when my family lets me hike again). 10/10 would recommend. Wish I had every single pair.

true to form

I probably own 10 pair of baggies - definitely my go-to shorts. The pockets are deep so when I keep my phone or keys in them, they sag a bit, but it's not a deal breaker and just a good reason to get a waist pack.

The Best Pair of Shorts I've Ever Owned

I'm usually skeptical of taglines, but "Life's Shorts" is probably about as concise and real as it gets for these bad-boys. These are quite simply the most versatile, durable, comfortable, and wonderful pair of shorts that I have ever owned. I lived out of my van for 3 months this summer, (exploring the western US with my girl... Read Morefriend) and I wore these shorts every. single. day. - no exaggeration - and wow did they stand up to the task with flying colors. I would bike, run, and hike multiple times a day, and not once did I run into any odor issues or a breakdown in construction, even if I didn't touch water for days at a time. To shower I would wear the Baggies into rivers and lakes, and when I emerged the shorts were as good as new. I really value low maintenance clothes, and hot dang these puppies put in WORK. I think it's important to note here that by the end of the trip my girlfriend was a very vocal proponent of the Baggies, and I think that says a lot about what these shorts have to offer the world. I was initially concerned about the liner being uncomfortable, but I don't even notice it! In fact, it turned out to be super breathable and a fantastic feature. The liner served as a great no-nonsense retaining system and frankly rendered underwear irrelevant for all of my backpacking/mountain biking excursions and most of my trip. TMI? maybe, but this is the kind of hard-hitting data you need when making a critical decision like this. I'm not usually one to review products, but these shorts have just given me too much. TLDR: Get these shorts. It's the best shorts-related decision you'll likely ever make. And if you're choosing between the 5" and 7" in-seem: Go for the 5", live a little!

Improvement suggestion

DURABILITY I use a pair of baggies daily. The outer shell is very durable and drys quickly. The inner jock support elastic fails. Frustrating to discard a good looking garment due to internal elastic failure. I keep replacing them. My Favorite here in Florida.

Comfortable shorts

Other that the liner the fit is relaxed. The liner is super relaxed and needs tighter elastic at the leg openings. The outer fabric is comfortable. The waistband elastic appears to have a limited life expectancy even though not used in water-sports and washed according to Patagonia guidelines. Im pleased with them.

Mesh liner is too big

I'm a fan of Patagonia, especially after having read "let my people go surfing" multiple times. The ethos behind this company is up my alley!! I was really looking forward to some classic shorts for hiking/backpacking/gym when I ordered several pair of Baggies but quickly found out that despite my 35 1/2 - 36 inch waist (I'm 45... Read More, just shy of six feet and 188 lbs) they were huge. I returned them all and exchange for one Medium Stone Blue pair. They were still a little big, which is crazy to me. I decide to commit and give'em a go for a weekend backpacking trip near the Stuart Mountains in Washington. Yeah, they're big...I can get away with them for sure, but after some heat and sweat they feel especially large and the mesh liner is undoubtedly on the large side. I was often pulling up the shorts so that the leg holes in the liner would return to wear a standard underwear would sit around my upper thigh. Then, because there's too much fabrics, they bunch up on the rear and I'd have to pull out a wedgies periodically; all the while the mesh would overflow out of the back waistline as my backpack would sometimes push the exterior of the shorts down. It was a mess! LOL! All in all, I'll keep'em for now (perhaps I'll ebay'em later) but for a 5 in. short they're pretty baggy and perhaps the Small is ideal, but for my height and weight small doesn't really compute. So strange. Keep up the good work Patagonia!

Favorite shorts ever

Bought these (grey), wore them for a day, and immediately bought two more pairs (navy and black). Ive tried similar shorts from other brands, but my search has ended. Please never change these. I plan to buy more in the future. I like all 3 but grey is my favorite.

Excellent product and high quality

September 6, 2020

Better than the first version 40 years ago.

Back in the day, when I was a size smaller and routinely jogging around Washington Square, I had these shorts in all the colors and used them all the time. They were light, lined, comfortable, flexible, they dried fast, had a good pocket, and wore like iron. I kept watching forth to reappear at Patagonia, and now finally they have. They're not... Read More cheap, but they're worth it; I tried a red pair to see, and they are great to exercise in. As far as I can tell, nobody else makes anything comparable. Now I have to collect the other colors (although they have also added creative patterns), which will, I hope, motivate me to work out regularly.

5" baggies are just the perfect summer short. They fit perfectly and can take you from the beach to dinner if you really need them to. The fact that they are made with 100% recycled nylon should be enough to make this a yes for everyone looking for a do-everything short.

Nice design - Patagonia quality

Love the seagrass pattern and colors. The bathing suit is constructed well and fits comfortably. Id like a slightly shorter inseam option as I like my swim suits to fall between my thigh and knee, not just above the knee. Other than that, its a total winner!

September 2, 2020

Great despite the pockets..

Id give this short 5 stars if it werent for the fact that the pockets reach the bottom seam of the short. It gives the short an awkward look when youre carrying around keys, wallet and phone.

Patagonia Baggies do it all

I have hiked, swam, and casually wore baggies for over a few years now. They dry quickly and do anything you could need them to, as simple as that.

The only shorts youll want to wear.

I bought a couple pairs that I cut the liner out of and I wear them almost every day. Theyre comfortable, breezy, rugged, and you can fit a tall boy in each pocket. Wearing anything else feels almost wrong.

Wish they were made of Stretch Wavefarer

I love being able to wear these all day in the heat of the summer, though when I load them down with phone, wallet and keys, they become a bit much -- and the material is a bit heavy and rigid for athletic adventures -- would LOVE to see an option with the Stretch Wavefarer fabric please! Thanks for being a responsible company in the world!

Hi Sabastian, sorry to hear that the liner in the Patagonia Men's Baggies Shorts were a bit too confining.

Better made than the women's version

I'm a woman, but I bought a pair of the men's Baggies in an XS because I liked the color and they were on sale. I was surprised (and rather dismayed, honestly) to see that they appear better made than the women's version of the same style, which I purchased at the beginning of the summer. Specifically, the men's shorts have back... Read More pockets with a snap closure (!!), a covered inside waistband for comfort, and a built-in mesh brief. None of these features are present in my women's sized Baggies. Also, note that the men's shorts do not have a drawstring, and the sizing is generous, so if you're on the slimmer side, you may wish to size down. Overall, these seem very well made, and I still like my women's Baggies. I love the generous pockets on these shorts; they're excellent for playing tennis. The 5" length is just right to provide enough coverage for active pursuits without being bulky. I like the colors available, and I plan to get many years of use out of these. I just wish that the men's and women's shorts were made with the same features. Especially for a progressive company like Patagonia, it's disappointing to see that the women's version is not quite as nice as the one made for men.

Need More Baggies

I bought a pair, wore them for a week straight, and then bought another pair. Can't stop wearing them. I wear them running, short bike rides, boating and swimming on the lake, and for my go to everyday shorts. Small fits perfect for my 28-30 waist, and the shorts end above the knees which is great. I just wish Patagonia would release more!

Classic but the fit needs an update

Classic shorts and the material is tough. Big sewn in pockets are a plus, but the fit is rough. Even in a medium these shorts are too loose in the waist.

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.

The shorts are very comfortable and look great but they have a major design flaw in my opinion. I ordered 2 pairs of baggies at the beginning of June and I didn't notice until they arrived but Patagonia has begun sewing the pocket into the front of the pants so instead of having a loose pocket, you just have one extra piece of material that is... Read More sewn to the front of the shorts to create a pocket. Within 2 weeks of getting these shorts the stitching on one of the pairs of shorts has popped about halfway up on both pockets which means that now both pockets have giant holes in them. I'm pretty sure that it happened while I was climbing in these and having to lift my legs up pretty high. If the front pocket was still loose then that wouldn't have happened.

A Patagonia Staple
