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.

Hi Emily, thanks so much for your review and we're really sorry that the waistband was too restrictive. Please don't hesitate to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) your Baggies if you were looking to do so. Your feedback has been passed along to the appropriate team.

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!

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.

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.

July 19, 2020

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 19, 2020

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 14, 2020

best mid thigh shorts

these are amazing and well worth the money! they fit well and are very comfy. good mobility and great material. also love that there are pockets its a big game changer!

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... Read More from trees, booty scootin', etc. but these were awesome. Love the pockets!!! Perfect for a mid or post dip in the water as they dry fast. I'm in love.

July 14, 2020

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!

July 13, 2020

The perfect short

I have several pairs of these and live in them all summer. They are the perfect length and have deep enough pockets that are great when biking. They are also super durable- they are literally the perfect short!

July 13, 2020

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. There is an adjustable drawstring which I use to tighten up the waist when I have the pockets weighed down with my cell phone and e-collar remote for my dog.

These are the best shorts and unlike the mens there is no silky brief attached.

These shorts are super comfortable and cute! I can wear them with anything for most events. I will totally order more

July 13, 2020

Fun shorts!

These shorts are so great and I have gotten so many compliments on them. They're just stretchy enough to form with your body while also being functional for hiking and other outdoor activities. I have such a hard time pulling them up over my butt, but once they are on they are perfect!

July 13, 2020

Fit is off

Okay, I wanted to love these shorts. But I am a true size 6, and the Medium was way too small! Its clear that the fit model is a certain shape and they arent taking into account other shapes (not sizes! Curvy doesnt mean bigger) However, I think if you know to size up - youll love these Shorts. Unfortunately, the L was sold out by the time I got th... Read Moreem. Prints are whimsical and fun! For context I ordered the shorter version in size L and love them.

Hi Lauren, we're sorry to hear these ended up being too small. Our designs are constantly being revised, and customer's feedback is one of the contributing factors to these changes. We hope that we won't disappoint you in the future. Thanks for your review!

July 13, 2020

Need all the colors

I love these shorts! They are a great length and are very comfortable. I am normally between a small and a medium and went with the small based on reviews. I am happy I sized down as the small fit perfect.

July 13, 2020

Finally shorts that I can wear at the lake!

I love wearing shorts at the lake. I can wear these doing everything and dry right away

July 13, 2020

great all around short

These shorts are perfect for long walks with the dog, SUPping since they dry very quickly and simply for every day active use. Love them!

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. Otherwise, these are my favorite things to wear because I feel like I can do anything in them!

July 13, 2020

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.

Hi Kimberly, we're sorry to hear the fit didn't work out. Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) them back to us if you were looking to do so, but haven't already. Thanks so much for your review!

July 13, 2020

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

My go to shorts

I originally ordered size medium and had to return them because they were much too big in my waist. I do see where other people are coming from because the small is tight as Im pulling them up but fit perfectly around my waist. The elastic band doesnt give too much but I actually like how fitted they are. These are so comfortable and I wear them a... Read Moreround the house, hiking and even when I workout. Pretty deep pockets with a band to hook youre keys to. I really do love them and will continue to order them in all the 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.

Love these shorts!

Love the material and the casual look of these shorts. As one reviewer commented about the waistband not stretchy enough for women with curves, this was true for me, but once I was able to squeeze it up my butt, it fit perfectly at the waist. I usually order a size xsmall in most sporty shorts in different brands and went with this size. I decided ... Read MoreI will be keeping them since they look so cute with a fitted crop top. My advice to Patagonia would be to make the elastic on the waistband more stretchy for curvy women!

July 4, 2020

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.

July 1, 2020

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.

June 30, 2020

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. They dry really fast. The waistband does not account curvy women! You do have shimmy them up over the butt, but once on they feel good. Great shorts! I am excited to start...

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.

women have butts!

I have loved baggies for so long for many reasons : the fabric, the comfort, and the casual design. However, I have always been in between sizes.

Cant say enough how much I love these. The fit was just right they can be worn high waisted or right at the waist depending on what your feeling, the elastic is great. I wear them constantly.

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. Luckily, these are long enough that it isn't an issue. However over a half hour of continuous walking, you may notice that the fabric at the hem will begin to...

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.

June 27, 2020

Most comfortable shorts I own

Great product! I love these shorts and wear them anytime the weather permits. I have even swam in them when the spontaneous moment called for it, and they dried super quickly. I'm planning to buy another pair when they restock in my size! If you're on the fence, they're definitely worth the investment.

June 26, 2020

Great Option for Water

My hips are 44 and the XL goes over them even when wet. I love these shorts as a more modest option for swim wear.

I love these shorts and wear them very often! I like that the pockets have enough space for my phone or other items.

June 26, 2020

Wish I loved them more

I was SO excited to buy my first pair of baggies, only to find them run small and arent really designed for a woman with any kind of hips. I wish they were a little more shapely so I could wear them all the time.

A true yeet

How I feel about these shorts is how I felt when Ross and Rachel finally got back together.

June 25, 2020

Love these shorts.

I am 55 and usually wear a size small in shorts. These shorts are a little tough to get on (seems like a lot of people had that issue, regardless of booty size) but once you do theres a good amount of space in the waist. Other than that, I love them and ordered 3 different colors. Super comfy and cute.

June 25, 2020

Comfortable shorts!

These are definitely baggy shorts! Once I wiggle them up over my hips and tie the drawstring, they are great. I love the deep pockets. They might not be super flattering, but they are functional and thats what counts! Im thinking about getting another pair in a fun color. Quality is apparent in these shorts. :)

Great Shorts - Need fit fix

OK, honestly love these shorts and soo glad they fit - however there is one thing I would change. The amount of elasticity in the waist band.

I like these shorts for lots of different activities and I can tell by how they feel they will last many, many years (one of my main reasons for buying from Patagonia). Nice big pockets!

June 22, 2020

cute and casual

These shorts are cute and durable. I wear them for casual weekends or an easy walk or hike at the park. The pockets are amazing and a large phone does not fall out. Only minor complaint I have is that the waist band is a little rough!

Goes with anything!

My favourite short, I can wear them to the shop and then go for a hike without having to change. The quick dry material makes them perfect for those warm summer showers.

Almost Perfect

I wanted to love these but the fit is a little funny.

Great / Disappointing Shorts

These shorts are mostly great. I got the Spanish red color, and I love it. They are baggy in all the right ways - relaxed without being too bulky, and they have nice deep pockets. My complaint is the same complaint I have with almost all Patagonia Womens products: they just do not take our curves into consideration. These shorts have no give in... Read More the waist band. Once the shorts are on I really like them, enough to give five stars even. But getting them on, especially when my skin is damp from swimming or sweat or the shower is a struggle. Its like a man with no grasp on womens bodies designs everything. Like the muse for every item is a super skinny marathon runner body type. That is never going to be me, nor do I want it to be. Even in my best shape, my thighs and butt are big. I love Patagonia products because of the quality and thoughtfulness in technical design as far as pocket, fabric go etc, and the colors are usually great. I just wish the designers would consider more shapely women in clothing cut.

Retro Comfy Casual

Brings me back to 1982. Elastic waistband, full pockets with key holder loop. True to size. Love them.

June 19, 2020

Best Shorts EVER!

Pockets like mens pants have! Pockets that can hold my phone, pocket knife, and keys PLUS the leash to clip my keys onto. These shorts are loose but flattering, comfy, lightweight, and quick-dry. I bought 3 pairs and I live in them now. And then I bought a pair for my toddler. Best shorts ever!

June 19, 2020

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!

Favorite shorts!

Super comfy and versatile shorts. I am 510 and ordered an xs. These are not to long and not too short, perfect length for me! Ordering in another color!

Love them but runs small

I am 21 years old, 5"10, 160 pounds and I had to order a size large. Typically I would be a medium and I wear a 6 or an 8 in leggings from Athleta. However, I could not get the size mediums over my thighs. Pretty wack sizing, especially since the material has little to no give. It makes me worry about the lack of size inclusivity for all body ... Read Moretypes. The large is VERY big in my waist since I am a 27 or 28 but it has a drawstring so I can cinch it tight. I bought these in 2 colors and literally wear them every day. Love the pink with floral print. So comfy and easy and flattering. Deep pockets too!

Baggies are the BEST

This is my sixth pair of womens baggies. I have worn them every summer for more than 10 years. Each pair (and I expect my new shorts) has worn beautifully.

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!

Cute shorts

These shorts are cute but the fit is completely wrong. The small is way to big and the XS is tiny. Im a size 2-4 regularly but I cant find a size that fits. Now that all the stores have closed for good in this area I wont be ordering online.

She wont buy anything on her own.

I bought these for my wife. She loves them. We live in California and it gets warm here. These are ideal.

Comfortable + Versatile!

These shorts are a legend for a reason! They are so incredibly comfortable. You can be more rugged in them or make them more street casual. I personally love how quickly the fabric drys! Perfect for beach days, camping, hiking, or traveling.

June 19, 2020

Great style but runs small

I have several pairs of these, but the fit is weird. I am a size 4 in most bottoms and the size small barely fit over my hips. The elastic waist is not very stretchy. Patagonia needs to adjust its sizing and widen its range of sizes to accommodate women of all sizes.

June 18, 2020

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. There was no way I could comfortable wear these and move around, m... Read Moreuch less wear them during outdoor activities.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

June 17, 2020

Goes with anything!

My favourite short, I can wear them to the shop and then go for a hike without having to change. The quick dry material makes them perfect for those warm summer showers.

June 17, 2020

Love these shorts

I want to have these in every color. Theyre comfy and flattering. I shouldve probably gone a size lower though. I am 53 and 123 lbs I purchased a medium but they are slightly big. A small wouldve fit better.

Very durable

Love these shorts - I feel like they will last forever! Great for day to day activities or outdoor activities like hiking.

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 :(

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.

June 17, 2020

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

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

Great comfy shorts. Dry quickly. For true to size.

June 17, 2020

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

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.

June 17, 2020

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.

I purchased my first pair of these shorts 10 years ago and still wear them to this day. I live in these shorts during the warmer months and have collected quite the collection.

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!

June 17, 2020

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.

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!

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.

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!!

Not sure why the sizing on these is kinda strange, but would really appreciate it if they accommodated bigger butts better.

Quick Dry Dream

I absolutely love these shorts. They are incredibly comfortable and only get better with time. I wear these hiking and they are perfect when I choose to stop and swim in a stream or waterfall. Just today I went for a swim and less than an hour later they were dry. The only reason I give these 4 stars rather than 5 is because the waist band is kind ... Read Moreof tight.

very comfortable flowy shorts! im five foot exactly and less than 90 lbs , i am so happy i got the xs! thank you so much!!

May 27, 2020

runs small

180 lbs, 5'9", tight across my upper thigh and not much room in the waist as I'd expect, fabric has no 'give'. But I like it and bought a 2nd pair.

May 26, 2020

Better than expected!

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. As I get older my body tolerates short shorts less (not a great look!) so I decided to try these instead. I am 58, a size 8 or 10, with a 31-32 waist and 44 hips... Read More and I got a large. There is some minimal tightness when I pull the shorts up but once on they fit great: comfortable at the waist (there is a drawstring, someone elses review said there wasnt), loose in the thighs and hips per the described style of baggies. They are going to be great for all summer. I am definitely ordering another pair!

May 26, 2020

Bad fit in larger size

These are super cute! These are not a good fit for me- but maybe for you? If you're smaller size, its probably a great short for you. But- the larger sizes run small. I would not say the XL is 16/18. Its more like a 12/14. Love the pockets, they're cute on- looks like the larger model photos. But very uncomfortable. If I want to wear tig... Read Moreht, restricting shorts, I'll wear everything else on the market. I'm right at the cusp between a 14 and 16 in jeans. Solidly a 16 per the size chart. Straight boy hops, with a butt and party thighs. They are not even feasibly relaxed fit, much less baggy. So very sad to be returning these. Was hoping I had found a great short for my adventures.

May 23, 2020

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. Easy exchange process, but I wish I had just ordered both sizes to begin with. Def try on in store before ordering.

May 23, 2020

Ive loved them for 30 years!

I have owned so many pairs of these and still love them. They are timeless.

May 22, 2020

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

Plus size baggies, hooray!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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).

May 18, 2020

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.

May 16, 2020

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.

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.

I was so excited to get these. When I ordered I checked the sizing chart, which said that a Large was 12-14.

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.

If You Are Curvy, Consider Sizing Up

I'm usually a size 4 in the waist, but because I'm a powerlifter, a little more 'gifted' in the booty and thighs, and tend towards clothes marketed as 'curvy'.

I debated buying a pair based off of some reviews stating they were too small and not satisfied because of past styles being better, but I am so glad I purchased a pair!

Great multi-activity shorts

I use these shorts for hiking, backpacking, and climbing. While they do run a little narrow in the hips, I appreciate the slimmer fit of the legs. I usually wear a 0/XS in Patagonia, but for these, I went up to a small to accommodate my hips. I also love the Spanish Red color!

Love My Baggies

Absolutely love these shorts. No other company has something of the same great quality and durability. I've been wearing baggies for about five or six years now and keep coming back for more. The only downside I've noticed is the size difference between a medium and a large. It's MASSIVE. I ordered both sizes this past year just to m... Read Moreake sure, but even though I fit in a medium in everything else Patagonia (5'6 140 for reference), the mediums in the baggies seem to not have enough fabric on the butt. Going a size up fixes that problem except the waist band on the larges seems to swallow me. I am able to use the drawstring to keep them (barely) up but wish Patagonia would have figured out the sizing discrepancy by now. Despite this weird sizing, I do love these shorts. The inseam length is perfect, I can put stuff in my pockets which is a win as a girl, and I'm not afraid to get water/mud on them. Highly recommend.

Again, don't mess with a good thing, this is my .....6th pair of baggies, I think, keep the new colors coming.

Love them, not as soft as my first pair, but will soften I’m sure over time! True to size! Great for wearing and rewearing esp with kids/outside. The water repellent material was a pleasant surprise!

August 19, 2019

Durable and great fit

I purchased my baggies in the summer of 2012 and have been wearing the same pair for 7+ years now. During the spring, summer, and fall months I wear them every single day and have been pretty rough on them on occasion! I hike, run, commute on bike to work, play field sports, swim, and run errands in these shorts and they hit the mark for all activi... Read Moreties. They amazingly still fit great and show almost no signs of wear. I'm finally breaking down and buying a second pair for fear that my favorite shorts will finally bite the dust and I won't have a pair to fall back on. Cannot recommend these shorts enough for quality, durability, comfort, and how quickly they dry. Also, the pockets are deep and awesome!

August 19, 2019

i love these! i will

i love these! i will only buy baggies from here on out, this is my 5th pair or something like that!

August 15, 2019

Cute, but a little long

I loved the idea of having a swimsuit set with matching shorts for when we are on the river etc, but I do wish they had this print in the shorter baggies version. I am actually someone who typically prefers a longer inseam, but these seem quite masculine in length since they have a wider leg as well. Other than the length, they are comfortable, dur... Read Moreable and again, I love that they match the bathing suit!

August 15, 2019

love these shorts.

These are my favorite shorts. I wear almost daily because they are so comfortable. Wash and wear well, length is good, waistband is comfortable. I upsized because I like a loose waist. This is my third pair and may order another!

August 15, 2019

Love these shorts!

I live in these shorts during summer. I own over 10 pairs (some over 20 years old) and use them on a daily basis for hiking, biking and just general wear. I bought these for my 90 year old mom who admired mine. She loves them!

August 15, 2019

Perfect all around short

I'm usually a size 10-12, and the L baggies are my perfect short for climbing, hiking, camping, kayaking, swimming, or just beach lounge days

August 15, 2019

Love the OLD version of the shorts.

I used to love these shorts, but this new version with the string in the pocket is a different cut than the other version. This new version is more snug around the leg hole area. I miss the old version, please bring them back. I’ve been forced to buy more of the old version shorts second hand online.

baggies changed :(

I practically live in baggies in the summer! However, the new pair I bought this year are a slimmer fit than my older ones. The waist is still true to size but they are slim on the hips and thighs...no longer truely baggie :(

August 15, 2019

Great shorts for your favorite lady!

Bought a pair of women’s baggies for my wife. She absolutely loves them! We now both own “patty” baggies and couldn’t be happier with our purchases. Durable, comfortable, clean lines and a classic look, what more does one need.

August 15, 2019

Great shorts!

These shorts are amazing, just wish they would stretch just a bit more!

August 14, 2019

Most comfy short ever!

I love these shorts so much! The deep pockets are amazing, and they get softer with time. The length is flattering to everyone, and they dry so quickly, too!

August 14, 2019

Perfect

Love these shorts! Originally ordered these to throw on after a bike ride but wear them all the time.

Baggies Rock!

Just got my first pair of baggies and they definitely live up to the hype! Can’t wait to order my next pair.

August 12, 2019

Can't believe it took me this long to find this short!

Just got my deep plum baggies and haven't taken them off since opening the package. I agonized a bit on sizing as I read all the reviews and this is my addition to the dialogue: I purchased my usual size Medium (I'm a size 6-8 usually in bottoms, size S/M in tops, 5'8") and they fit perfectly, waist hits right under the belly bu... Read Moretton and the 5" length covers what I like to with my upper thighs. AKA the perfect short. The material is amazing and the pockets have this beautiful lay flat seam...just the best shorts ever for adventuring and running after a 9-month old! Also this print is amazing. Thank you Patagonia!

Baggies Shorts 5 Fit

The fit on these shorts could be improved a bit. They tend to make my butt look flat. And the back seam sometimes gets stuck in between my butt crack, which becomes a pain in my ass (literally and figuratively). I bought a size M since my waist line is wider than my hips (I normally wear a size S in shorts/pants in other brands). The fit around my ... Read Morewaist was ok, but it was too loose on my backend. I find that a lot of the pants/shorts that Patagonia makes the sizing doesn't account for different shapes and sizing tends to always run small.

August 12, 2019

W's baggie shorts

I love wearing these shorts for hiking, kayaking and working out. They dry fast when in water! The only downfall to these shorts are the waistbands. I got a size medium and they fit great but getting them over my hips, especially if wet or sweaty can be tough- there's no stretch!

August 12, 2019

loveeee these shorts

I wear these shorts constantly and are a great thing to have in a town with a river!

August 11, 2019

Most comfortable shorts I have ever owned.

Great quality, style, comfort and color.

August 11, 2019

Perfect

Love my Patagonia shorts. Just what I was looking for.

August 10, 2019

Crunchy, uncomfortable

Love the look of these, but the fabric is so uncomfortably stiff!

August 10, 2019

Go to shorts

Live in my baggies. I wish the waistband had more stretch to it, but that’s my only complaint. The pattern is cute and the fabric seem durable.

August 10, 2019

Perfect Everyday Short

Great for your everyday activities! Washes well and good length!

August 10, 2019

Comfy once they’re on!

These shorts are really comfortable once I get them on, but they are quite hard to pull up over my butt. I have size small. I tried medium but it is so large it looked stupid on me. The small is super comfy at all times except when I am putting them on. Just a bit more elastic in the waist would solve everything!

August 10, 2019

Love my Baggies

The most comfortable shorts I own. Wash up well and are super durable! Fun prints too! I love the parrot print the best!

August 10, 2019

W 5’ baggies

These are great shorts. I am a camp counselor and these shorts can do anything. Hiking, swimming, horse back riding, you name it these shorts can do it. I would definitely by them again.

August 10, 2019

Sweet shorts

good fit, sturdy design but airy at the same time. patagonia outdoes themselves yet again...

August 10, 2019

Not for big thighs

I guess I have big thighs. These were better than most shorts but still felt awkward/uncomfortable when sitting or squatting. Didn’t bother to take them hiking. The pockets are great though.

Response from Patagonia
August 13, 2019

We are sorry to hear about the troubles with fit on these shorts. Since they do not offer a lot of stretch, they can be a bit restricting if you are wanting to squat or hike in them. We'd recommend you save those other activities, or you are welcome to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) them back to us.

Love Women's Baggies

Nothing more comfortable, durable, great colors and enduring style than Baggies. Worn them for decades because they work in Houston heat and humidity. I can even swim in them when desperate to cool off! Patagonia provides fast, accurate availability and shipping.

Just-Right Basic Baggie

My 16 year old loves these. They are not too loose and baggie. He’s 6’2” and 200lbs, athletic but his waist is average, not tight. Purchased size Large. These fit him really well.

August 10, 2019

Baggies are the Best

I love these shorts. They last forever! I have two older pair that I have had for decades. So glad I added these two new colors for my summer vacation.

August 7, 2019

New sizing doesn't work for me

The medium "baggies" are no longer baggy. They're a tight fit over my hips and sizing up to "large" works only if you're in the market for a pair of clown pants - they're ENORMOUS. Foolishly, I bought these in a shop while traveling because I needed a pair of shorts and "knew" these would fit as I own ma... Read Moreny pairs that all work perfectly. I'm out $$$ with shorts that don't work for any outdoor activity except standing still.

August 7, 2019

In Love!!

I am so happy that I can finally wear a pair of baggies! The new design works much better for me. They are long enough to wear with my harness, which is a big factor I look for. Plus, they are lightweight, comfortable, and cute. Although I love the violet, I wish there were more dark colors in stock because I get them dirty super fast. Do recommend... Read More!

August 1, 2019

i LOVE!

I absolutely love my baggies!! they are violet and the color is so beautiful. they are so comfortable and i wear them all the time. they fit is great and makes me feel confident. my only complaint is that the waist band doesn't match the color of the shorts (it's white), because sometimes I like to roll it up by one for a different fit.

July 31, 2019

My favorite summer shorts

These are my go-to shorts for the summer. I own four pairs, so I wear them pretty much everyday. The five-inch inseam is perfect, and they really go well with just about any situation. $55 is a bit pricey for a pair of shorts, but they are worth the investment. I can tell they will be worn for many years to come! Get a pair today!

July 23, 2019

I want to like them but...

I want really bad to like these because they have an inseam that actually works with my 38" inseam but the flaws are really annoying. I don't need the waist bant to sit at my belly button! and for some reason, the elastic on the waistband is exposed (unlike with the barely baggies or men's baggies) which is super uncomfortable.

Bring back the old design

I LOVE BAGGIES! I have 6 baggies and I wear them constantly. I just ordered a new pair and I was so excited to wear them. Little did I know that Patagonia changed the design. I STRONGLY dislike the new design. The new baggies do not fit as the older baggies do - they are too tight in the hips.

Too Tight in Crotch

I have the shorter baggies and 5-inch baggies. I wear an M in the shorties but had to go up to an L for these, and they are still too tight. I can not run or really walk without my legs being restained. Wish Patagonia would go back to how they were originally made. I will be purchasing a men's to see if they fit better.

Literally in Love!

These shorts are the perfect length, thickness in fabric, and are so, so comfortable!!! They are multifunctional and just work so well when you have to do so many different things in a day. They dry quickly when wet, and easy to pack! I especially love the key chain holder that is in the pocket so if you find yourself in a river or water you don&#x...

Really Wanted to Love These

These are great in theory. For me, the waist band ruins it. Way to tight, needs more elastic, and maybe something more comfortable or wide right at the waist. Also, a zipper pocket would be nice.

May 24, 2019

Not as fabulous as the originals

I was SO hoping to love the return of baggies shorts, but when I tried them on was sorely disappointed. The fit is really slim, so they don't have the roominess and movement of the original baggies. The 5" inseam is shorter than 5", and the elastic on these isn't covered with fabric on the inside as it is on the shorter version ... Read More(why the difference?) and the elastic is scratchy against skin. I really wish Patagonia would bring back the real original -- they were roomy, decent length, well made down to every detail, great 3-pocket design. And they were truly baggy, not just a quick-dry nylon short.

May 22, 2019

Way Too Long

I initially tried these 5" Baggies b/c I wanted a more modest length. I am 5'1 (95lbs) and these 5" Baggies are super long and swimming on me. I tried on size XS and S. Both way too long on me. I went with the 2.5" Barely Baggies, and they aren't *too* short/showy.

May 17, 2019

Great shorts, but sizing isn't great!

I ordered these shorts in both a medium & a large. The large fit in my hips/butt, but was HUGE in my waist, so I exchanged for a medium. The mediums fit my waist great but were so tight on my hips. So, I now missed out on these shorts because they don't fit women that aren't straight up & down in the waist & hip regions. If Pa... Read Moretagonia ever revisits the sizing & fit of this product I would definitely check them out again. Great material & seemed very durable. Rated so low due to the weird sizing.

Expecially good if you are tall

I saw some negative reviews so I wanted to be sure to add something positive. Are you tall? Do you dislike typical shorts due to the short inseams and short waists? These shorts solve those problems. Get the same size you would wear for any athletic clothing. The elastic is snug going over my hips, but perfect once around my waist. Yes, they are ba...

Can't Stop Won't Stop

My mom gave me a pair of her baggies a couple of years back. Mind you, I'm in my twenties and these baggies are about as old as I am. But they just won't quite. I have worn these trail running in the Tetons, swimming in the ocean, sleeping among Sequoias, and sitting in the car putting thousands of miles on my odometer. The elastic is sti...

Great shorts, Strange Sizing

LOVE baggies. Great shorts for everything in the summer. However I hate the change in size from medium to large. They almost need a size in between. The large shorts drown me, but the medium ones I can barely get over my waist. It's a very dramatic size difference. So when in doubt I'd size up just to be on the safe side. I'm a mediu...

Odd fit and not 5”

I had been coveting these shorts for several years now, and finally broke down and ordered two pairs. I’m a big Patagonia fan (have lots of other Patagonia stuff) but I’m so disappointed. The fit is just odd, and really uncomfortable. I wore them around the house to try to convince myself to keep them because they’re so cute in all the pictures. Bu... Read Moret after an hour I couldn’t wait to get them off. One of the big issues is the true inseam measurement. It’s 4”, not 5”. I measured. That extra inch makes a big difference for me - I’m 59 and although I’m in great shape and my legs look pretty good (especially for my age!) I’m just too old for short shorts. To make it worse, the odd fit causes the shorts to hike up really high on my legs when I sit down. Oh! And the fabric is stiff and scratchy, I was really expecting something soft and comfy. I had read the bad reviews and yet was hopeful. Sadly, these are going back. :(

March 13, 2019

Comfortable, functional and look great

Fantastic casual fit, functional shorts for a variety of activities. The fabric options are awesome too. Thanks Patagonia!

March 12, 2019

Woohoo Baggies

I got these last spring before any reviews were out on the new sizing. I got an XS per the sizing chart, and I could get them on, but they were incredibly tight. The next size up was sold out, and I really didn't want to pay return shipping for wacky sizing, but luckily customer service took good care of me! The S fits great. They are expensiv... Read Moree for shorts, but I have worn them so much in just the past year the price per wear is definitely less than a dollar. I love them. I sleep, swim, climb, lounge, and play in these bebes. They are seriously the best climbing shorts. I really dig how you can wear them high waisted or low for a more tomboy look. I'm a bit confused as to why the men's have a pocket on the back and a liner for the same price, but maybe I'd hate them with those features. Who knows. Anyway, I love my baggies and I think I'll have them for a really long time!

March 3, 2019

Size up and roll the waistband

I love my baggies - they've been with me through it all: climbing trips in Moab, trekking in Peru, rollerblading and running in Texas, lounging by the creek in Colorado. The shorts dry super quickly and I like the looser fit. The shorts have also gotten softer with repeated wear/washes. That said, I bought a large in these shorts (I'm 5&#... Read Morex27;6", 150 lbs) and roll the waistband twice to get the look I want. I tried on the large 3" inseam baggies and they were just too tight along my upper thigh. Also love Patagonia as a brand and their dedication to quality and environmental causes. Would definitely purchase again, but I have a feeling I won't need to... they'll last forever.

February 12, 2019

LOVE these shorts

Definitely runs small and has little stretch, but when the right size these are amazing shorts! They are durable and dry very quickly. Great for climbing, hiking, (mild) biking, etc. Highly recommend.

February 12, 2019

Terrible fit for my shape

I ordered the RoK Vibrations color and loved it. The fabric felt a bit stiff, but I figured it would soften a little over time. From there it went downhill fast. The fit was way off. I wasn't sure whether to get an XS or small, so I ordered both. I tried the small on first. There was a bunch of extra fabric that poofed out in the front down lo... Read Morew. My first thought was that I received a men's pair! Then I decided I must have put them on backwards, but when I checked they weren't. Really they were too big anyway, so I decided I just needed the extra small. But I could barely get the XS over my hips, because the waist doesn't stretch that easily. When I got them on they seemed ok, except that they still had fabric pooching out in the front down low, although to a lesser extent. Not an attractive look at all, and I've never tried another pair of shorts anywhere that did that. So I don't know exactly what's wrong. I'm thinking maybe the front rise is just too long. Whatever it is, it's way off for my shape. For reference I'm 5'5", 107 lbs., with an hourglass shape and hips about 36" - 36.5". Your results may be different, and Patagonia has a good return policy, so I'll still give two stars.

January 3, 2019

Sizing has changed

I have 3 pairs of these in medium - 5'10, 160 lbs., size 6/8 in jeans. They are a little high waisted, but I like them that way. They dry quickly and I love wearing them for travel and biking around town in the summer. They are my favorite shorts! I bought some from the Spring 2018 line and they have a tighter fit.

November 15, 2018

Different than before

I love baggies, I own three pairs from past seasons but I wanted a new color so I ordered my usual M size and the fit is definitely tighter than before. For one the give in the waistband is 1/2-1 inch less than it used to be (I even side by side compared my other pairs, one which is still newer from past season.) The shorts fit like previous models... Read More around the bottom part, but around the butt/waist they are just tight, not to the point of not being able to wear them, but to the point I don't feel mobile or that they are flattering. I feel after buying my usual Patagonia items year after year the sizing is getting tighter and tighter for women. None of my other clothes or brand sizes have changed so this isn't a vanity issue, but an inconsistency issue with Patagonia clothing. Sometimes I'm a small in one Patagonia thing, a medium in others, and now apparently I'll need a large in baggies to feel comfy. I'm disappointed that Patagonia keeps making their women's clothing form fitting when it shouldn't be considering it's for active use. Also the baggies material is slightly thinner than before, I think the quality is starting to lack. I'm glad I bought them on sale but they are going back! FYI I'm 5'7" 145lbs, usually a size 6 pant and small or medium in tops and bottoms depending on the brand.

November 10, 2018

You may need to size up

Bought these shorts before the summer season an they’re great! As other reviews said, the waist band has very little stretch and you may need to size up.

Significant Difference in fit from original style

These shorts have always been some of my favorite! Patagonia very rarely fails me and I own many Patagonia products. I have multiple pairs of Baggies and quite honestly, they are all I prefer to wear in the summer. They are extremely durable and I feel like I can get many wears out of them before I need to wash them. This summer I bought a pair in ... Read Moreblack and there was a distinct fitting difference. Like other lady reviewers have noted, if you have wider hips and a skinny waist they are difficult to put on and lack stretch. In the past, the shorts were never really the stretchiest and I acquire that to the character of the short. However, it is much more noticeable with the change in fit of the newer Baggies. I highly recommend the shorts, just be aware that you are likely to size up. They have little stretch, but are extremely comfortable if you find the right fit!

September 5, 2018

Style #57057 was perfect

You changed the Women's Baggie Shorts style from the original #57057 to a new style (#57058) which do not fit right! Shame on you! Don't change a style that is already perfect!

August 29, 2018

Women's 5" baggies different than before

I own two other pairs of these and love them so I ordered another pair this year. I am very disappointed in the quality. The material is so thin compared to the previous years. The older pairs are more beefy. These shorts are comfortable , but I like the feeling of the others better. I feel like these will rip and wrinkle easily.

August 28, 2018

Not made for women with hips

As a few reviewers have noted, if you’re a woman with larger hips and a smaller waist, these may not be for you. For reference, I have a 29inch waist and 44inch hips, and usually wear a 12 in pants. I ordered both the L and XL in these shorts. Because the waist band has no stretch, the L was difficult to get over my hips, but once they were on, fit... Read More snuggly at the waist. In contrast, the XL is easy to get on and fits in a “baggy” way, including the waist falling down below my underwear unless I tie it. I’ve decided to keep the XL because they are comfy once I tie them and I like the pockets, plus I got them on sale so the less than perfect fit doesn’t bother me as much. Had I paid full price, these would probably be returned.

August 27, 2018

Not 5" inseam

These baggies are a bit shorter than indicated in the above description. They are about 4.25-4.5 in the inseam, so a bit shorter than expected. I bought a blue pair of 5" baggies this spring at a Greater Outdoor Provision Co in North Carolina and they were accurate at 5". Need to get this consistent.

August 23, 2018

Not made for women with any shape at all.

I have purchased patagonia wear before and still have several of their items. I expected these shorts to be the same way. I bought them and took them home noticing right away the awkward fit. I thought I might just need to break them in. I tried but with no avail, the shorts didn't budge. They were uncomfortable and not proportionate to a woma... Read Moren's body. I only wear them on short walks and hoped they would be great on campus. I have been washing on cold and air drying but today I noticed PILLING EVERYWHERE. On my crotch, on my bottom, and my thighs. This really frustrates me because I have only had them for three months. I will not be buying this product again. Cute color though.

August 22, 2018

Not as good as the original

These new baggies have a nice fit (I'm 5'6", 140# and the medium fit well) but are much more trim than the originals. They are unlined, and I miss the inner nylon brief of the originals, which was great for water sports. Also, the originals had a a fully encased elastic waist -- the elastic on these is just sewn in, so the elastic is... Read More against your skin, which I find less comfortable. All in all, not a great reproduction of the original baggies and I'm sending them back -- hope they improve on them next season.

August 9, 2018

Different than before

I don't know if it is the new material, but these do not fit the way my older baggies do. Far too tight across the hips and rear. Unfortunately couldn't exchange for larger size as it was sold out in the color I wanted. Luckily, found it on sale on a different site, and hoping that sizing up is the answer. I really love my older pair of b... Read Moreaggies, so I hope Patagonia takes these reviews to heart and improves the fit of these in the future.

Best shorts I’ve ever bought

I just am in love with these shorts. They are comfy from day one. I like the shorts for everyday things. They also dry really quickly and easily.

I was nervous about the sizing on these,given others' reviews about them running oddly small. I actually didn't have this problem with my pair (so maybe the odd sizing de... Read Morepends on color or production date?). I am 116lbs and 5'7" (skinny/lanky build) and ordered a S even though I usually wear an XS in Patagonia (and most other brands). They fit as I would expect Baggies should fit -- loose around the legs and room to spare around the waist. I wear them above my hips which I find most comfortable,but can wear them on my hips if I just pull them down a bit. The elastic waist is as stretchy as I would expect an elastic waist to be,and the drawstring secures a tighter fit in place. I probably would have been fine with an XS but I am happy with this pair as is.

Good quality short, but a different fit

I wanted a nice quality short that dried fast for fun in the sun this summer. It took a few returns before finding the right fit and Patagonia online returns aren't as friendly as other sites. I'm 5'3' and 170lb. The picture below is the Large which I'll keep. At first ordered a size 12 board short but it felt too snug on h... Read Moreips/butt. Then the XL baggies were huge, returned for the L baggie and fit nice. As others mentioned the waist is snugger compared to other brands of athletic shorts and a touch snug on my hips but I don't mind. I think they thing of not of an athletic type fit when they design these. It's hard to find a fit for everyone I suppose. The initial fit finder had me at 53% XL and 47% L so that didn't help much.

Super High-Waisted

With all the rave reviews out there,I was sorely disappointed when my first-ever pair of Baggies arrived and I found them to be incredibly high-waisted. In order for the crotch inseam to hit me,well,in the crotch,I have to hike these things up way above my natural waist line. Terrible! Admittedly,I prefer a lower-mid-rise waist,but these things are... Read More crazy high-waisted. The model photo is super misleading as it shows the shorts sitting below her bellybutton. When I do that,the crotch literally sits about 3 inches below my crotch. With all that said,there's no arguing with the quality of the shorts,so if high-waisted is your thing,go for it. For me,never again,unless they completely redesign the shorts.

Love these

These are my new favorite shorts! They're super comfortable and fit great. Plus they're pretty cute as well. I can work out in them and I can use them as everyday shorts. I'm usually a size 6 in pants and I got a M and they fit perfect.

Different fit,but for the better

I own an older pair of baggies but bought some this year (2018) and they definitely are trimmer around the area just below the top waistband,as other reviewers have said... but I actually think they fit better that way! I found the top of the old baggies to be a bit "poochy" but liked the fit anyway,after all they are activewear. But,I li... Read Moreke the new fit! They're comfortable and still plenty of movement.

Poor fit

These are not as 'baggie' fitting as I was hoping for. They are oddly snug below the elastic band,and kind of buckle at the top part of the pockets. When I sit I have to hike them up my thighs otherwise they are uncomfortable. And they've given me a wedgie a couple of times. I normally wear a medium,but I even bought these in a size ...

Fit is off

My friends all rave about these so I thought I'd finally grab a couple pairs. I was so disappointed to receive them and find that the fit is so bizarre! I ordered in two sizes just to be safe - but in both pairs the waist is awkwardly tight,the front/back balloons out,while the legs tighten up again. I don't have this issue with my Barely...

A bit snug

I have to agree with the other reviews. These are the first baggies I've owned,so I can't compare them with the previous style,but I am normally an XS in Patagonia stuff,and this year I had to return everything from an entire order - including the baggies - and exchange them for a S. Even the Small that I exchanged them for is tight!!! I ... Read Moredon't mind them being ever so slightly tight in the hips because I'm an athletic build with thicker thighs and butt,but I do mind them being tight in the waist. I'm even wondering if I should order a Medium,which I've not ever had to do. So if you're like me and don't want them tight in the waist,definitely size up one - or even 2 sizes! I wish I had a place close to me that sold these so I could have tried them on before buying.

Going strong for nearly a decade

I have had my baggies for nine years,and though they have faded a bit,they are still hands-down my favorite shorts for activities. They've been on backpacking trips,hiked half dome,scrambled peaks in the Wasatch,been fishing,and been my post-biking go-to shorts on desert trips. I can't speak to the new fit,but can attest to the durability... Read More of these adventure shorts!

New Cut not up to par

Ordered 2 new par this year noticed the difference and pulled out old one to compare. After comparing everything it seems they are not as full under the waistline.

Weird sizing

I have two pairs of the barely baggies,both in a small and they fit PERFECT. So I wanted to try the baggies for some extra length. Bought a small in these and the waist was pretty tight and it was uncomfortably tight over my butt. So I went to a store to try on the mediums and they completely fell off of me. I have an athletic build,smaller waist a... Read Morend bigger butt/thighs. I don't know if they changed their cut/sizing but if you have an athletic build I'd try them on somewhere if you can before you order online.

The new cut is terrible!

I was really excited to get myself some brand new baggies based on how amazing my friends older style fit me. The new "style"/cut of these shorts is terrible,it was uncomfortable and awkward fitting. PLEASE bring back the old cut!! I would buy 10 of them if they hadn't changed.

Used to love them!

I recently purchased two new pairs of Baggies. They are strangely tight at the bottom of the pocket opening. This causes them to pull across and scrunch up above my butt. I ordered my normal size medium because I already have three older pairs that fit perfectly in this size. I'm not sure why the style was changed,but it is extremely disappoin... Read Moreting.

My new "go to" shorts!

Although I agree with a couple of the reviews that the waist band doesn't give much wiggle room,I love these! The relaxed fit is awesome and I really like the length. I purchased a L and generally fit a size 10 and I feel like the fit is good. I would spend my life in running shorts if I could get away with it,but these are a super comfortable...

My favourite shorts

Ok,let me just put it out there that these are some of the world's best shorts. I own 3 pairs (more as time goes on) and consistently rotate them through the week. I LOVE the pockets,waist band,and the feel of them. I wear them at my natural waist which makes them just as short looking as the barely baggies but without the tightness or muffin ... Read Moretop. I do,however,note that they are not built for someone with a larger behind as they don't really have much stretch to accommodate different body types,so proceed with caution if this might affect you. They're super durable and don't get dirty,they're nice and loose which makes them nice for hiking,climbing or running. I also adore that they're unlined as I'm often in a position where I wear shorts over bathing suits (WW Kayaking,lifeguarding). Huge fan,thanks Patagonia for yet another knock out product!

Am I the only woman with hips??

I wasn't quite sure what size to get these in, so I ordered a medium and a large. There is such a HUGE size difference between the two! They need like a medium-and-a-half. I could barely squeeze my hips into the medium shorts (there is NOOOOO stretch at all, and the waist band doesn't have allowance to go over hips), but I have a ton of e... Read Morextra fabric in the back of the large - I look like I'm wearing coullottes. It is just a really strange fit, and really doesn't work well for women with hips. I'm typically a size 6-8, and the pockets bulge when I wear the mediums. These would be awesome with a little bit of stretch, and not such a huge jump between sizes.

Best all-purpose shorts!

I am 6' 2",super tall and athletic-skinny with minimal curves. I bought a size small and they fit perfectly! The inseam is actually only 4" on the pair I received,but not a big deal.

Worth a Try On

Thought the story behind the 1968 pattern was super cute,the pattern just makes me smile. Normally wear a extra small but purchased the size small and have plently of room,like the baggy look. Worth a try on.

Meh.

Definitely not for curves + small waists. Tried the L and XL. The L fits the waist but too tight over hips and thighs to be comfortable while moving about. Yet the waistband on the XL is hardly elastic and does not tighten the shorts enough,so that the overall result is a very,very low rise. It would be great if the waistband actually stretche...

New Fave

After my husband bought a pair,I had to have a pair myself. They are really comfortable and just the right length/fit great.

Wish the color had been clearer or better named.

These are the classic baggies,so I don't have much to add about fit. I just wish that the "beryl green" was actually green and not a gross teal color. I know it's hard to tell on the internet but beryl is a green gemstone,so I figured I'd be getting green shorts. I got the smalls and they fit like they should. Waistband ela...

Slim fit baggies?

Just a suggestion for a style of women's baggies ... stretch,or slim fit... giving a little more form around the leg.

Had a hard time with the sizing...

I was very torn on what size I should get in these. I did not order my baggies from this site because I found some on sale on another site. I read tons of reviews on here and other websites and what sizes other people chose. I also checked the site to see what size they recommended for me. I felt I needed a medium (as this site recommended) but I ... Read Morehave purchased the barely baggies before in a medium and they were too tight. Many others had sized up in reviews I read so I decided to size up to the large and unfortunately they are way too big. I know I would love these had they been the right size. I am in the process of returning them for the right size but I hope this is helpful for anyone who is unsure about size. I am 5'4 and 155 pounds. The pic is a little embarrassing but it is to give you all an idea of just how big they are. Try to stay true to your size! I honestly think I could wear a small in these.

Love these

I bought these about 6 months ago and wore them for 3 months in Africa. They are great. Lightweight,comfy,and with nice large pockets. I'm 5'7" 140 and the medium was perfect. I will be buying more.
