May 10, 2021

Runs small

Super flattering, I ordered up a size since I never have ordered pants from Patagonia before and Im glad I did. In womans clothing typically wear a L bottom but in some juniors stores (like AE) I wear an XL. Would say if you are used to ordering juniors clothing go for your juniors size- but if you are used to wearing adult sizes (loft/ Ann Taylor)... Read More size up. But over all I love the fit!

Dependable product

I have always loved the patagonia baggies. I wore the 2.5" length for a whole summer of kayak guiding but wanted a longer fit. The longer fit is great and feels like more coverage. Dries really fast.

LOVE the Baggie shorts, even after all these years!

Hands down my favorite shorts. I've been wearing them since they made only men's and I would cut the liner out, and now that they make women's I've been wearing the same pairs since the early `00s. I bought these because I like the print and know they will last. I wear them all summer - SUPing, hiking, hanging out in the Adirond... Read Moreacks. Quick dry and pretty much indestructible. I can't recommend them highly enough. You'll keep them for 20 years or more.

For the Love of Turtles!

Well, I cannot tell a lie. I have loved turtles since I was a child and when I saw these shorts I had to have them! I usually buy the mens and cut out the mess. This was much easier. Super comfy. The leg openings are a bit too big for me. I would buy again.

May 6, 2021

Not for me

I really wanted to love the Women's baggies because of the material and versatility, but the sizing is off. The M hugs my hips and butt and just doesn't feel right. I opted for the Men's S instead and feel much more comfortable with the high waist and coverage.

May 4, 2021

sizing

The sizing is off. I normally wear a size 4 shorts but the small is more difficult to get over my hips and the medium is too big

May 3, 2021

The perfect shorts

These shorts are actually a practical but cute length. I like the wider leg fit, and overall they are the perfect short for when I want to dress more masculine or laid back. These are true to size. I am 55, 140 lbs, and athletic and the size small is perfect. These are not flattering on the butt if that is what you are doing for, but personally tha... Read Moret isnt my interest when I grab these to put on.

Fit snugly around the backside

These shorts are great but they run small in the backside. When I opened the package and tried the shorts on the waste and length were fantastic but the backside was a bit tighter than I expected. I had to return them because I didnt have the required range of motion to keep them.

April 30, 2021

Comfy and Modest!

These shorts are so comfy and cute. Perfect length not too short so theyre modest but also not too long that they look like boys shorts. Love the material and love the style.

April 28, 2021

A Perfect Staple

I got these at the beginning of spring hoping they would fit and be comfortable enough for a variety of activities this summer. I have worn them so many times already and they go with everything in my wardrobe which is a huge plus. Thank you Patagonia for making such a solid pair of shorts!

April 28, 2021

Baggies fan

Love the print and the length. The waist band is not very stretchy and is a little small compared to my other baggies. Hard to get over the hips and booty but fit well around the waist. I wish they had a little more stretch to make getting them on and off easier.

April 27, 2021

Love them

I like these. The medium was too small on my butt, but the large is a little too big everywhere else. Overall love them thi

Most versatile shorts EVER

I love these shorts so much. I had them in my cart for 3 years and kept almost buying them, and I can't BELIEVE I waited that long. If you're thinking about it, take this as a sign to buy yourself a pair of baggies. You won't regret it!! I use these for work, hiking, casual wear, climbing, running, and honestly anything else. I can&#... Read Morex27;t recommend these enough.

April 26, 2021

Very comfy

Comfortable, so much so I am going to get a second pair in another color! Flattering, lightweight, highly breathable but durable. Flat enough waistband they will work for backpacking and climbing. I wish they had a zipper pocket for my house key when running. I am 5'5 115lbs and got an XXS.

April 26, 2021

comfy and cute: the everyday summer short

I could not recommend these shorts enough, they are extremely comfortable and cute (in my opinion!). I got a size small, and I am around 5 7 and pretty thin, but I also enjoyed wearing my friends size mediums when I was looking for a bit more of a baggy look (one that I enjoy fondly). The material of these shorts is great for summer as it would rea... Read Morect well to sweat and water. Overall, I highly recommend- I want them in every color and am currently refraining from purchasing another pair.

April 25, 2021

so great

these are my favorite shorts ever, so light weight and great for any outdoor activity as well as for casual outfits when out and about

April 21, 2021

Great Material!

These shorts are such a thick material, similar to a thicker swimsuit. They are perfect for any physical or outdoor activity. I am excited to wear them as a counselor at day camp this summer!

April 21, 2021

Well-made, colorful shorts!

Only wore these out once so far, but really liked them! The color's a vibrant blue, they feel durable and well-made, and fit well (good length!). I'm a 26" waist, 38" hip, pear shape and the size small fits great! No need to shimmy over my hips. Can't wait to wear them on trips.

April 20, 2021

Cute and comfy

Come but not too baggy. Pockets are great with a loop to hold keys or a wallet

April 18, 2021

Comfortable shorts

Very comfortable, loose fit, a little stiff. Will wear them often

April 18, 2021

Great shorts!

This is my second pair of Baggies. They're great for just about anything. Love the deep pockets, which make them perfect for pickleball!

April 18, 2021

Theyre orange!

I really love these shorts, I would say size up if you want a baggier fit. Im an xs/0/25 and I got a small. The paint brush red is definitely more orange, but still a gorgeous color. Cant wait to hike and swim in these!

April 17, 2021

Cute but see through

I ordered the baggies in Saffron color. Im 56, 135 pounds and ordered a size S. Fit was great, but when I turned around to look in the mirror, the shorts were very sheer. You could see every stripe on the underwear I had on underneath. I tried a lighter color of underwear, but still could see everything. I would not be comfortable wearing these cas... Read Moreually knowing theyre nearly see through and dont have a built in brief. I was very disappointed especially reading reviews that the older versions of baggies were made of beefier fabric. Ill sadly be returning or exchanging for a darker color.

April 16, 2021

No comment

I don't know how these shorts could fit anybody - they are way out of proportion - the waist is too tight - the leg openings are the circumference of a California redwood tree - huge.

Thanks for the feedback on the fit. In the future we're happy to provide garment dimensions for any gear prior to purchase.

Great Shorts

Super comfy. Love the loop latch in the pocket! I would love these even more if there was a 6" inseam option

April 13, 2021

obsessed is an unterstatement

This is my 4th pair of the Baggies and I cherish every one of them. I wear them almost every day when it's warm out. They pack lightly, dry quickly, and last through years of wear and tear. It also helps that the colors and patterns are always amazing and eye-catching!

April 13, 2021

Ok but not great

I got these shorts for paddling and bumming around at the lake. I've had my eye on them for years after knowing guys who have loved them. I was tempted to try a mens pair because this fit is ok but not super comfortable. They should be a tad looser around the hips and butt. I think they were trying to make a more feminine cut but it just doesn... Read More't fit right and ends up feeling like it pulls in certain places. I kept them because they are good enough. I often find that women's versions of great mens pieces just don't hit the mark for us women.

April 12, 2021

LOVE these shorts

I have these in the 5 inch and 2.5 inch and I love these shorts. I keep coming back for more. I am typically a 4/6 in pants depending on the style and I have both a small and medium in the baggies, but I like the medium for a looser fit. I highly recommend these!

April 11, 2021

Favorite shorts

By far my favorite shorts Ive ever owned! Perfect for any outdoor activity and also very cute. Would highly recommend

April 11, 2021

Super comfortable.

These are the fifth pair of shorts I have. Two pairs of black, green, blue and pink. I love these pants. I wear them riding my recumbent bike outside.

March 30, 2021

Great pair of shorts for everything

I'm already a big fan of the short's versatility (biking, hiking, hammocking), they're obviously activewear but in a smart way. I'm short so the 5" shorts make for a modest cut on me: the shorts pull up to my natural waist and the hem is below my upper thighs. I told my friends the shorts make me feel like one of those cool... Read More, active 90's moms.

March 30, 2021

So comfy!

I have a 24" waist and 34" hips, and the xs is a nice looseness. The only thing to keep in mind is the fact that your phone will weigh down the shorts and pull them down even if you cinch the waist at the tightest setting.

Loved but tight waist elastic

I have always worn these and medium always fits but this year the elastic waist was just really too tight. They are almost too large elsewhere but I knew I wouldnt wear them because the waist wasnt comfortable. But I had no trouble returning them and found something else I liked. I wish the waist fit because I loved the pattern but they just had a ... Read Morestiff waist compared to other years. I would say they I not true to size.

Xxl!

Im so excited they started carrying xxl. Bought two different colors. Also bought some other shorts in xxl that were true to size. The shirts are not tho. But will be buying a ton of bottoms now that I know they fit!

March 26, 2021

Wanted to love these...

I wanted to love these based on the positive reviews, but I ended up in the negative review camp. The crotch is too low and the waist definitely runs small without much give despite being elastic. I never know whether to purchase XS or S because they are pretty inconsistent. Sometimes I swim in a small other times I suffocate in an XS. Back to the ... Read Moreshorts, the material is also much more like a board short than I expected and didn't seem like it would be too comfortable for longer summer alpine approaches which is what I was hoping. The prints and colors are fantastic and I wish the fit were right. I tried the shorter baggies in a S with hopes the crotch would fit better, but it was sadly the same.

Weird Fit

I wanted to love these when I received them. The fabric feels very durable and they are well made, not to mention more environmentally and socially responsible than most other companies options. However, the sizing is very weird if you have a thicker bum/thighs like I do. I wear a Large in pretty much every other pair of leggings and shorts I own, ... Read Morebut the large in these shorts was extremely tight around my butt, and almost too tight in the waistband. I exchanged for an XL, which are way too big and loose. Unfortunately I have to send both back.

Great Shorts!!

These are my favorite shorts I have ever worn. I have two pairs and they are amazing! The fabric is great for the lake or the beach as it dries so quickly. I would also describe my body as more pear shaped and they are really flattering for my body. Love love love!

March 17, 2021

Nice fit!

Fit great, even with muscular thighs

Love the Saffron color!

Bought XS in dragonfly and exchanged for xxs because for too much bulk in material above my bottom.

Runs small

Overall I like these shorts but they are NOT true to size. I am a true xl and I could get the xl on but they were so tight and uncomfortable that I didnt want to wear them for long. I recommend sizing up. Hoping to try the xxl soon. Annoyed that my true size doesnt fit.

January 29, 2021

Cool Shorts

Its winter in Maine so I havent had an opportunity to wear them yet, but Ive tried them on and love the fit. The length is great- not too short, and I can tell the material will be really quick drying this summer. I love the print and Im excited to wear them when the weather permits.

Extremely comfortable fit

These shirts are amazing. Even though they are elastic band and drawstring they can pass for a really relaxed casual look with a nice T. Definitely purchasing other colors. Please make more prints.

January 22, 2021

Beautiful Blue and resilient

These shorts have great pockets, accommodate a tummy and are a terrific blue - plus well made. However, by the nature of the material, they don't contour to your body, they drape to their design.

FAVORITE shorts

These shorts are my summer uniform. Have converted my mother and sister in law as well. Theyre comfortable, dry quickly, move easily, and the colors are so great. Literally have 8 pairs. They fit consistently with other Patagonia stuff, maybe a little smaller than some leggings, but theres some stretch

Very comfortable

These shorts are awesome! They fit great and I can tell they are very well made.

Back pocket please

I have had two pairs of the men's Baggies shorts for TWENTY FIVE YEARS and they are still holding up strong. My husband bought me a pair of women's Baggies for a present - I was excited to have women's ones as I thought they'd be a bit more fitted. But wait - no back pocket, unlike the ones I already had? I was confused and thou... Read Moreght maybe they've eliminated the back pocket over the years for whatever reason. But I looked online and nope, the men's shorts still have a back pocket. Does Patagonia think that women do not need to carry things securely too? Do they think we are doing sports carrying a purse or something? Do they think most women who shop at Patagonia are so vain that they care more how their butt looks than actually being able to carry their phone or wallet with them? (And if they did care, they could just elect to not put anything in the pocket). I know from the Baggies that I already have that it's quite uncomfortable to carry something heavy (like a phone) in one of the front pockets when running or doing anything where you are moving a lot. The back pocket is much more useful. Please add this to the women's shorts. I still gave 4 stars since the original ones I had have held up for such a ridiculously long time and these otherwise look similar, but I will not purchase another pair of women's shorts without a back pocket.

The perfect shorts for any activity!

If I could buy these in every color, I would! I love them so much. They go with everything and are great for any activity.

November 11, 2020

My new favorite athletic shorts

These shorts are so versatile and comfy! Once I got them I started wearing them almost everyday for morning yoga, skateboarding, or just a comfy outfit at home. It's slightly on the looser side, but fits perfectly when you tighten the drawstrings.

October 8, 2020

Love it except for the waistband.

I am 42 years old, 5'6", 160 lbs. I wear size 6 on bottoms, and as per size guide, I am a small. Fits perfectly, except for the waistband.

Comfy and perfect swimming shorts - but be aware of the waist size!

I love these shorts. Perfect for summer - swimming, hiking, camping etc. I have a 26" waist and the XS fits me well on high waist, BUT they are a little snug. I tried the small and those were falling down my waist! I wish the XS was a little less snug and had room to breathe a little.

September 16, 2020

Fun patterns and comfortable

I love the fun patterns that these come in and that they are so comfortable as well as practical for just about anything.

September 16, 2020

Super durable

These shorts are amazing and dry fast. I have 4 pair and want more

September 12, 2020

Comfy and Cute

I opted in to get the longer baggies because I have a bigger bottom and wanted it to all be covered. These are great. They are water repellent, light-weight, and so comfy. They also have and elastic band. These are my go-to shorts and I wear them all the time. They kinda feel like swim trunks.

September 7, 2020

One pair can do it all

5'7" / waist 31" / hips 36.5" and the mediums fit perfectly. The small is a little snug on the booty and I still have them but my mediums are my go to. I seriously live in these. Recently went on a weekend outdoor climbing/camping trip that included a dip in the river. The rest of my clothes smell horrible and my baggies have a ... Read Morelittle bit of a smell if I stick them against my nose. Lighter colors easily get dirty but are really easy to clean since they repel water (I've even easily gotten blood stains out of the light beryl green using hand soap in a bathroom sink). Great for swimming in because they dry with a quick wipe from a towel or a few minutes in the sun. Great for biking because there are no seams in the saddle area. I'm to the point that I try to wear these out so I have an excuse to get another pair. I look forward to that day when they need a repair because that means both the shorts and I lived a good life.

September 3, 2020

Run small

I really wanted these shorts to work but unfortunately they were way too small, particularly in the hips area.

The best shorts ever!

I have probably 15 pairs of these shorts and I notice the current cutting is slightly slimmer than previous seasons.

These fit exactly how I was hoping they would. I can't stand when shorts are too tight and I like them to have a baggie look/feel and these are perfect.

Literally the best shorts! Great length - not too short not too long (Im 49) - great pockets - comfy - and cute! Worth the money!

September 1, 2020

Excellent unisex short

Like the 5" inseam and no internal mesh liner. Pockets hold my iPhone. Comfortable for all-day wear. As a guy, this design is better than the traditional men's 5" inseam version. Wish Surfboard Yellow XL had been available when I ordered.

I am 5' 3" and weight abut 116 lbs, I bought the XS size and they fit great! I l love that these shorts are a little high waisted too! I got them for sailing and and they very comfortable, quick drying, and sturdy. I also found that the right pocket has a small elastic loop in it for attaching things to! Pockets for the win! My only disap... Read Morepointment was that, even though these shorts are made of recycled materials, they still come in a plastic bag that is difficult to recycle.

August 18, 2020

THEY ARE WONDERFUL

I'm 5'6 and pretty athletic with most of my muscle in my thighs/butt so shorts sizing can be a gamble, but the medium fit me REALLY comfortably and were a little on the loose side! The material is perfect for more rugged trails with scrambles and/or rougher outdoor adventures. They are definitely worth the price!

August 5, 2020

Restrictive Waistband

If you are shorter (5'1-5'3) and have any sort of hips, I would not recommend these shorts. The width of the legs clearly was the right size but I could not get the waistband past my thighs/hips at all.

Rugged and Cute

These are great all-around shorts that I use for both casual wear and for hiking. They are well made and I feel like I don't have to be too careful in them to avoid ripping or staining them. It is for this reason that I bought my 7 year old son four pairs of Baggies in his size! I bought the 5" pink palm fronds for myself, which is a uni... Read Moreque color combination and pattern I receive lots of compliments on. My only minor issue with the shorts is that they "puff" out a little at the top under the elastic waist band in the back more than I would like ( which luckily can be disguised by the position of my shirt). Good shorts overall though!

July 24, 2020

Very cute, but maybe size up

I am 54 and around 160 lbs. I go between a size 6 and 8 so I bought the medium. I feel they are a bit snug and wishing I would have sized up. They fit, but I would have appreciated a little bit extra room.

In Love

I bought a small, Im 56, 130 lb, athletic build, 27in waist 38in hip. They are so comfy and the 5 inseam is perfect (I was worried they would be awkwardly long). No liner, so probably wont wear for running, but theyll be perfect for kayaking, climbing, hiking, and even swimming.

July 19, 2020

Can't recommend these enough

These shorts are amazing. A great length (not too short to freak out conservative moms and not too long to prevent my thighs from tanning). They're super comfy, and are great for crop tops or tucking a shirt French style or full on. I got them in pigeon blue and like that they're almost denim neutral but have a bit more pizzazz. I want at... Read More least one more pair because I literally have worn these 6 days a week since I bought them in May. If you're reading this review, just go buy them already you won't regret it.

New favorites

A little over a week, and my baggies are my new favorites for outdoor activities. The loose sizing gives a different look than athletic shorts, but they dont ride up and are extremely comfortable. A little pricey, but worth it in my opinion.

July 14, 2020

Best hiking shorts

I bought an x-large because other Patagonia shorts (not baggies) have run small. These ran much bigger. I was too lazy to mail them in to exchange and just rolled the waist band sometimes. I used them to hike all over, especially the high peaks in the Adirondacks. This is the perfect short for booty scootin' down those rocks. Other shorts tore...

Perfect Baggies

I'm very pleased with my purchase, kinda bummed that the colors sell out so fast in my size though. Will definitely purchase more in future. Perfect baggie/retro fit. A wise investment.

July 13, 2020

Fantastic all all sport shorts!

I now have two pairs of these shorts and absolutely love them! I use these as every day wear and wear them hiking and biking as well. They are super comfortable and dont ride up like most other shorts. Highly recommend!

Great fit and comfort

I love these shorts. They are great for hiking, walking, hanging out. I like the fit-loose but not too loose, and the length-great coverage/not too long or short. I wish I ordered more because they sold out so quickly.

July 13, 2020

So Easy to Wear!

I've had these shorts about a month now, and I wear them any chance I get! I got a size medium because they were out of smalls in the color I wanted, so they're a little baggy on me, but the drawstring keeps them held up. However, the waistband isn't very stretchy so I have a bit of a hard time getting them over my hips, even though ... Read Morethey're loose on my waist.

Hips dont lie

I really do love these shorts and the colors. But its made for women that have no shape. When I pull them up its a little hard to get over my butt. Once they are on, they fit okay just a little snug around the hips. I still wear them because I really do like the material and theyre easy to match with other clothes.

July 13, 2020

Now I understand

I tried these on last year and decided no to get them but wanted to give them another shot since they are so popular. At first they seemed too, well, baggie but Ive gotten used to the fit and really like them. They are cute and comfortable. I originally got them for water sports but have only worn them casually so far. I plan to get other colors.

My old friend

Patagonia baggies- my old friend that never wears out. Bought my first pair in the 80s! I've climbed and hiked in these- they are every bit as rugged and versatile as they have always been! I'm a muscular girl ( climb, telemark, bike, hike and run) and you have plenty of room for movement with ample coverage.

Amazing Shorts!

Look and fit great. Sooo comfortable, and light, and sharp look. Great to wear in warm weather. Love this color!

Nice Summer Short

The shorts are baggy, but the waist is true. Im 58 130lb, and I ordered a medium, probably would have been fine with a small.

Womens Baggies

I wish I read the other reviews about this short and I would have probably just went for the mens version of these shorts. I have a curvy body and the shorts have no give and are cut for someone with very straight hips.

Not for curvy women

I wanted to love these shorts so badly, but they just did not work on my body. I ordered a medium based on the sizing guide and I could barely squeeze them over my hips. Once on, they were huge in the waist and very tight in the hips/butt. I would not recommend these if you have any curves.

So Easy to Wear!

I've had these shorts about a month now, and I wear them any chance I get!

Hard to get on

Like some other reviews mentioned, the shorts were really hard to get on the first time. I really had to tug them on, which is why I said they run kinda small. That being said, once they're up on your waist, they fit perfectly, and true to size. I always wear a small, and the smalls fit me well once they were up on me.

Just right.

I was looking for shorts for the South Florida weather. They are comfortable and do not stick to my skin as other shorts that I own. I would have preferred it an inch longer but I am very happy with my purchase. Highly recommend them.

Durable yet light

High quality, nice feel and fit. A little stiff at first but can tell these shorts are well made and will stand the test of wear and tear- built to last! A rear pocket would be a suggestion for future design.

Awesome versatile shorts!

Thank you Patagonia for offering these shorts in XXL! I bought myself the bright blue and my husband got me the black ones for my birthday. Perfect for water sports and swimming.

Plus Size Review

I am a 5'8" gal, 270 lbs, and have shorter legs but a longer torso. I appreciate how long the baggies were because my thighs touch, so an inner thigh rash is always a concern.

Comfy Work Look

The design on these are so cute and creative! The only downside is that they run a little large, so i have to tie the waste band pretty tight.

Great style but runs small

Very small

These run very small for women and girls but true to size for men and boys. I did have to return mine and my daughters and get larger sizes, but both boys fit fine. Love these shorts for the whole fam!

My new every day shorts

I absolutely love these shorts, they fit great and the higher rise/longer inseam is perfect for me since I'm tall. They're so comfortable and the pockets are great to have. I've worn them for many an outdoor adventure! They do ride up on occasion but nothing too bad!

Not accurate plus sizing

I wanted to love these shorts SO MUCH. They are everything Ive been searching for, and I was excited when Patagonia started carrying XXL. Its definitely a far cry from size inclusivity, but I usually wear a 1X/2X so I had high hopes for these. Unfortunately they fit like a roomy XL.

Amazing

I had been debating these shorts for a while due to mix reviews. But Im glad I finally went for it I got two different colors and I wish I would have gotten more. Super comfortable.

June 18, 2020

Not easy to pull on

Other reviewers commented that the fit on these shorts does not work well if you're curvy. If you have any sort of butt, these will be hard to pull up. I got a medium, which is what I wear in other Patagonia shorts, and they require a definite squirmy wiggle pull up. Not a quick up or down. Once they're on, they feel fine. The fabric ... Read Moreis quick dry, and I don't worry about getting wet or dirty. I've worn them hiking, in the garden, camping, and been satisfied. I would size up to a Large, but I'm worried the baggy-nature would mean you would easily see up my shorts. If these had a liner like running shorts, maybe that would be fine. With an elastic waistband and a drawstring, I would think Patagonia could give them more stretch within each size.

These are great

These shorts are versatile and comfortable. I take them running and wear them around when its warm.

Super Cute

Great shorts. I love the alligator print and strong, lite weight material I would have given them a 5 star rating but as with Patagonia clothing I am in between sizes.

True To Size (snug waste band)

True to size but waste band needs a little more give to get over the hip area (Its a little bit of a shimmy and wiggle situation getting them over the hips) once its over it fits perfectly.

June 17, 2020

Size Runs Small

I'm normally a medium, but I should've purchased a large. They're tight everywhere, in the thighs and waistband. Once I get them up to my waist they're not the worst, but getting them on is the biggest struggle! Go a size up :)

Great Shorts

As an active, outdoorsy, bigger gal - I can honestly say these are the best hiking shorts I have ever worn.

I Like the Old Sizing Much Better

I have a pair of Baggies that are, probably, at least 25 years old, size M. They fit perfectly. The new Baggies, size M, fit way too snuggly. The pockets are on the inside, so they take up space (the old style has pleated pockets on the outside of the shorts. The waistband doesn't stretch much either.

Perfect Mountain Wear

I have three different pairs of the baggies. Wear these shorts for all my summer adventures in the mountains. They're light and comfy, which makes them totally perfect for hot days living in New Mexico. They provide enough 'room' for movement, so are great for running and climbing, or any of your other mountain adventures.

Way Comfy

Most versatile pair of shorts I own! I actually ordered a S and a M and after trying on both went with the small. Liked the fit of the S better which was a surprise.

ideal casual short

i purchased these in a medium in saffron- i normally wear a small but accidentally ordered a medium and didnt notice too much of a difference. when i want them a little more snug i just pull the drawstring. these are my third pair of baggies! theyve all been through hell and back and have held their quality!

Quality but tight

I ordered a medium and I love these a lot but they dont have too much give around the butt. Im 57, size 4/6, definitely more pear shape and I found the hips/butt are a bit tighter than Id like.

June 17, 2020

Disappointed

These shorts are awkward. I would say Im a fairly normal mom figure. The medium 5 in swallowed me. The small was loose in the waist, snug in the butt, and loose in the legs. Overall, super disappointed. My daughter got the xsmall 3 in. They are fine. She is super thin and 14 years old. I guess they are just a teen kinda short :(

My Favorite piece of clothing

Comfortable, fit well, wash wear like iron. And they get complimented. The new prints are cute! I wear these basically every day.

June 17, 2020

Baggy for sure

These shorts are so bulky around the waist and abdomen. And the elastic band Is so high it makes me look like Bill Haders impression of Clint Eastwood. These look like mens shorts.

Comfy walking shorts

Great for walking, pockets perfect for phone and key

Cute shorts but not for me

I normally wear a size S in all shorts and a 2 in jeans and I bought the small and the waist was way to big for me they just looked kinda frumpy. I then ordered the XS and they didn't even get over my thighs. These shorts aren't made for a curvier/athletic body type. Wish they did fit right because they're so cute

June 17, 2020

Overall good fit

I love the fit once they're on but they are snug pulling them on over my hips. I have 41" hips and a 29" waist and the stitch used to secure the elastic on the waistband does not accommodate enough stretch to slide over my hips and to fit at my waist. That being said they fit pretty well and I will wear them often!

Nice colors. Dries quick

They do say baggie in the title

Love everything about how these feel and perform, but you wont win any style point for them. They are slightly puffed making you seem larger and more shapeless than you actually are, but they are great in and out of the water and super comfortable.

Amazing Shorts, Sizing Different Than Other Years

I love these shorts and this is my fourth pair of baggies. I have always purchased XXS and keep wearing my XXS, but I could barely get the XXS on. They don't have much give so I sized up to the XS.

Very cute and practical

First things first, sizing. A lot of the reviews actually steered me in the wrong direction.

I have these in a few colors, the saffron color is so cute; a little see through in the front but nothing major and im also very tan so maybe thats why. Either way, you cant go wrong with these. Great for hiking, walking, swimming, hanging out, anything you want! Deep pockets, quick dry material, cute colors and prints!! I will keep buying and wearing them and I tell all my friends about them!!

I have muscular legs and a booty so it's often hard for me to find baggy shorts/pants that fit right on my body type. I'm 5'3, size 27 waist so I purchased a small.

First off, I really like baggies. I have a number of pairs of Barely baggies, which I'm a size L in no doubt, but was looking to have a higher waist and a bit longer fit. I ordered the size L in the regular Baggies, but the size was really weird on me, really large waist and just looked strange. For reference, I'm between 5'6" a... Read Morend 5'7" and weigh 155-160, with bigger butt/thighs. My sister wears the medium, which actually fit me really well, as I was happy to find out, BUT they're quite difficult to pull on. Really takes a lot of shimmying due to my larger butt, but once they're on feel fine. Not sure why the sizing on these is kinda strange, but would really appreciate it if they accommodated bigger butts better. They do have a drawstring waist, so seems strange that the waist is so small still.

June 5, 2020

Love them

I am 5 ft 6 and 140 lb. Perfect length. Only thing is I have wider hips so they flatten a little on butt area - but I expect that with most clothes. I got a M and the waist and legs are great the rear is a little tighter than I like.

I went back and forth about sizing on these after reading reviews about the baggies redesign. I had never tried baggies, I always wore barely baggies, so I couldnt compare the older style.

Great Shorts! - Sizing is iffy

Not a negative about the Baggies themselves, they're great shorts! The size recommendations are just off imo. I am 5'8" 130, and was swimming in the small, even with a bigger butt to fill them out.

I lived in my baggies when I was a thin young river guide :) Fast forward 15 years, 2 kids later, and I usually buy clothes in XL. Knowing that baggies run on the smaller side, I would need an XXL to have them fit the way I like them to fit. I was so happy to see Patagonia expanded their sizing, so I ordered the XXL. I love them and am looking forw... Read Moreard to quarantining in my baggies this summer!

Love them

These are the best shorts, The pockets are deep they fit true to size, Im a little thicker in the waste but they fit perfect. They wash and dry a very quick overnight if I wash them out by hand sometimes I do. I just wish they had more colors

Wanted to love them....

I love the fabric so much but the fit is definitely not for a curvy girl. I wish I had read the reviews and sized up. The waist fits great and is loose at the leg opening but the midsection pulls so tight at the pocket that its borderline obscene. There is no wiggle room for the booty! Such a bummer. I will be returning these and unfortunately, I t... Read Morehink the next size up will be too big.

Runs small

These run small and are unforgiving with curves. They fit in my thighs and waist, but are way too tight on my hips.

Size up

I am 5'7, 135 lbs and a pretty true size 4 or 27 in bottoms. I do have larger hips and bottom, but I usually have no problems fitting into those sizes. I ordered a small in these shorts based on the size chart, but they are incredibly restricting in the hips and seat, but fine in the thighs. I'm returning these for a medium, but I'm ... Read Moreconcerned those will then be too baggy in the thigh. I guess we'll see! The color I got was beautiful, but just a warning, the lighter colors can be see through. Amazing shorts and I love the fabirc, I just wish the fit was a bit better.

Size down.

I usually am a small. Size 4 or 27 pants. I originally bought a small and ended up exchanging for an XS. The small was just a little too baggie looking especially from the side. XS fits much better! Love these shorts!

May 19, 2020

Great fit and feel

Usually I try not to buy shorts online as I am larger in my hips and thighs and much smaller in my waist, but these fit just right. A little snug around my bottom which I didnt mind as most things are, but the legs taper out slightly and made a comfortable amount of room for my thighs. Bought 2 pairs and will probably buy more for the summer as I a... Read Morem always out by the water. Very comfortable feeling material and sturdy as well. I can tell they will last me a long time!

If youre on the fence, size up

I ordered a pair because they look like they could become my new favorite shorts. Im a size 8-10, played college volleyball so I have bigger thighs/glutes. Definitely experienced the struggle of getting these shorts over my butt. Strangely, once they were on, the fit wasnt horrible? I was able to fully squat without feeling like circulation was bei... Read Moreng cut off, or I was in danger of ripping the pants. For as hard as they were to get up, there wasnt the pocket stretching that happens when shorts are too tight on curves. My butt still felt like it was being squished & I did some heavy breathing at thought of trying to get them on a second time, but they were the most comfortable, well-cut pair of shorts that Ive ever tried on in a size too small. As of 5/18, they come with a drawstring as well. I put in my return request & ordered them in a size up (the color I wanted was already out by the time I went back, sad).

Cut for a mans body

These shorts are cut very weird. Its as if Patagonia is unaware that women have hips. Im not curvy. I have more of an athletic build and still these shorts are big in the waist and not roomy in the hip area but then flairs out especially on the inner parts. Its not cut to suit women. I read other reviews about how people felt the rise was short and... Read More thought that maybe overweight people were complaining. Nope. Im slim and these do not work. Its a dorky look because the legs wind up being slanted (higher on the outside legs and lower on the inside). Too much room in the belly area. Makes you look like youre wearing a diaper.

I Wish You'd Bring Back the Old Baggies!

I've ordered several pairs of baggies in the past couple of years, hoping to find a pair that fits like my very first pair that I've had for probably 30 years or more. Your new sizing is so disappointing. I'm 70 years old, still athletically fit, still wearing the same sizes I wore in my 30s and 40s. The large size is gigantic. I wea... Read Morer them while running because they have large pockets that accommodate my cell phone. I have to cinch the drawstring waist as far as it possibly goes so that the shorts don't sag uncomfortably. I don't wear them for anything other than running because they look ridiculous on me. The medium sized shorts are almost as bad, but in a very different way. They're too snug, too form-fitting, and seem shorter than 5". My iPhone makes them fit even tighter when it's in my pocket. There is a HUGE disparity between the medium and large sizes. I wish you'd make an in-between size - or better yet, make your medium size a true medium again. My old Baggies have pockets that are sort of a patch design, with a pleated bottom, so that when anything is placed in the pocket it doesn't take up room in the shorts themselves. I suspect that's the major difference in why my old shorts are more comfortable, accommodate my phone better, and appear longer, even though both the old and the new have a 5" inseam. It's possible too, that the side seams are slightly more generous in the older version. Whatever makes the difference, if you'd go back to the old design, I'd buy several more pairs. As it is, I'm not purchasing any more.

Size is off and no liner

Wanted to love these but like many other reviews, the cut was made for someone with no curves. Im 59.5, 135 and the medium waste band is hard to get on and too snug on the waist but the legs are loose. Also WISH these had a liner like the mens baggies have one. Hoping for a redesign soon, wanted to love these but just couldnt.

May 15, 2020

Not fit for curves, super bummed

Im so sad these dont work for me. Ive tried two sizes. I got them in Medium and they could barely get over my butt and remained tight around the waist, yet were baggy around my slim thighs. I bought a second pair in large thinking it was a size issue. They went over my butt better but were still tight around the waist and now huge on the thighs. I ...

Bought my first pair in early 90s and still bombproof

I bought my first pair of baggies in the early 90s as a Mothers Day gift for my mom, a sailor. I bought her a pair and myself a pair too. I now own a few more pairs but still have the originals. When spring comes around baggies are pretty much all I wear. They look good with a race shirt and some flops, and have cavernous pockets. They dry quick ...

Color and sizing WAY off.

The fit for these shorts are WAY off. Based on the patagonia bottoms size chart, I'm a M (a true 8-10 pant). I could literally not get the shorts above my thighs. The waistband barely stretches. I ordered size L as a backup based on reviews, which fit ok.. the waistband got up over my thighs and butt but the thighs were a little tight compared... Read More to how loose the waist was once the shorts were on my. The fit is meh. But I like them enough to keep them. Also, the coloring was way off. Iordered Mellow Melon and the color of the actual shorts is like a light peach, not close to the color in the picture.

May 10, 2020

Size Up!!!!

These shorts fit like a size small once you get them on. However, the designers forgot to consider that one has to put them on to get them on. The waistband should not be considered elastic because it does not really stretch. They are incredibly difficult to get over your legs and butt, and I don't even have a booty. I normally wear a size sma... Read Morell, I'm 5'9 and 145 lbs, and rarely have to size up but I suggest you do if you want to get them on. The saffron orange is also completely see-through.

Weren't true to size (L)

I was so excited to get these. When I ordered I checked the sizing chart, which said that a Large was 12-14. That's my typical size so I ordered the large and when they arrived I literally couldn't even pull them over my thighs. The elastic waist doesn't have much give. I literally looked at the size, thinking I'd been sent the ... Read Morewrong ones, because they were SO small. I ordered another pair of shorts in the same order in a Large, and those ones did fit!!

Love these shorts

These shorts are great and so cute! Love the peachy color I got. And the pockets too! You can't go wrong with these!

May 6, 2020

Pretty Great

These shorts are versatile, breezy, and have giant pockets. Theyre the perfect length with a perfect rise, right up to the belly button. The only con is that theyre a little tight on the butt, and they slightly flatten and restrict the butt. Im a solid medium, with an average sized butt, and I feel the shorts press down on my butt. They dont ride u... Read Morep on the inner thigh which is great. I ordered the sulfur color, and I was afraid theyd be too see through. They are a little bit see through, but the color is so beautiful and vibrant, that Im totally okay with the slight transparency.

Bad Fit

Just for reference I am very active. I am almost always a size small in everything. I am 140 lbs and 5'5" with a 27" waist and 39" hip measurment.

the best shorts ever!

I love these so much. They are true to size, have big pockets, and dry quickly. I work outside all summer and these are practicably all I wear.

Really cute but wish they were drawstring!

Love these shorts, but wish they were drawstring. I got the light beryl green and theyre a really nice color. I am a large 4 / small 6, 5 ft 10, and about 135 lbs and the S fits pretty well. BUT even though they have a little drawstring on the inside to tighten them, they are super hard to get over the booty. And then they are a little loose on the... Read More waist. Theyre comfy and I love them, but definitely a bit of a pain to take off because they dont just slide off! Not bad, but wish Patagonia considers the female body a bit better next time.

Love it!!

Just got my first pair in Pigeon Blue and I'm already obsessed! Love the style/feel of it. Going to be buying another pair very soon!
