Women's Baggies™ Shorts - 5"

True To Size
March 15, 2023

love em!

Comfy yet practical fit! This shorts are my go tos in the heat. Also the length is just right, not uncomfortable short or weirdly long. They do not roll/ ride up either. 10/10

March 4, 2023

Comfy, cute!

Bought these shorties for my daughter who uses them as bouldering shorts and she loves them! Comfy, cute, a win/win!

March 2, 2023

I love it.

I like them, I really really like them.

March 1, 2023

new cut is not as baggy

I have a few pairs of baggies in the same size from many years ago and love them. These fit more snugly through the hips (and laying the new pair on top of an old pair indicates a ~1 in smaller cut). I love the pattern and they fit well enough, so will likely keep them, but I'm disappointed by the fit update.

February 26, 2023

Finally shorts that fit!

It's so hard to find shorts that don't ride up because they are too tight around the thighs. These fit well and are so cheerful looking!

February 25, 2023

I bought my first pair

I bought my first pair in '87. They last forever and dry quickly. This is my 5th pair. Clearly, I love them. In fact, I love everything Patagonia!

February 24, 2023


These are the gold standard. I use for boating and swimming. My last pair lasted 20 years.

February 22, 2023

just comfy and nostalgic

They are comfy. easy to wear. I can put bike shorts under if needed or as is. the pockets are large enough to be useful. Also nostalgic since I had pairs of these years ago!

February 17, 2023

Beautiful color

First I bought a L that fitted, but a little tight around the crotch. Exchange for xl which was big, but keep it as a loose fitting shorts. The Orange color is really beautiful.

February 15, 2023

Nice color and good quality fabric

The color, length, hidden pocket and stretchy waist are all positive! I notice that the hips are tight as I pull the shorts up, but if I sized up the waist would be too baggy. 27 in waist, 38 inch hips for reference. A little more room in the hips would be excellent for me, but I like the shorts.

February 14, 2023


I love these shorts, super comfy and cute. I wish they had the same colors/ prints in the 5 in inseam as the 2 1/2 in. The 2 in is simply too short but they have much better color options and it makes me sad

February 14, 2023

Worth the money!

These shorts really last. I've worn the same black pair of these shorts about %25 of every year for six years. They look the same now as the day I got them. I love them! I have over the years branched out to 5 other colors/patterns because I'm such a fan of these shorts.

February 13, 2023


My daughter likes it. the color and material.

February 11, 2023

Please bring back the pre-2022 design!

Tried on my usual size (small) in these a while ago and was incredibly disappointed to have the recent complaints in the comments being proven true. These indeed have smaller and impractically placed pockets, and they fit tighter, too. As someone who specifically loves the 5" shorts because they are boxy, the snugger fit was the absolute worst... Read More, and made buying these a dealbreaker. I love Baggies so much and was excited to buy more pairs in a bunch of fun colors...but this redesign is not it. Please listen to your customer feedback and consider going back to the original Baggies design, Patagonia! These never needed to be changed! :(

February 9, 2023

Great quality

These shorts are the best! They fit well, not too tight or too big allowing for good movement no matter what the activity. And the material is soft but very durable. And the color maintains its integrity. I have several pairs to prove it.

February 9, 2023

Great for swim/SUP

These shorts are really comfortable. I bought them to wear with my swim suit, but I wear them just about everywhere. The are really comfortable.

February 9, 2023

Works for both land and sea!

These shorts look great and I could wear them all day, including a hike to the beach. Definitely one of my favorites.

February 9, 2023

Getting returned

I bought these and the barely baggies for my wife. She very much prefers the barely baggies fit over these. The 5 inch inseam come down to almost mid leg on her.

February 9, 2023

Nice material

I ordered these shorts in 3 different colors. Nice material. True to size. Comfortable to wear , not too tight or too big Cant wait to wear this summer .

February 7, 2023

Miss old model

The new model doesnt compare to old model and fit. The fabric is not the same quality and it runs way too large with a very long elastic. Small details like the pockets and the fit are not as great. Patagonia should go back to old model exactly as it was with pocket aligned with lining, not a sleek in cut with this new design.

Best fit and comfortable

I love these shorts. I know own two of them in different colors. When I first got them, I took them out straight away for a summer hike and they were perfect. The size fits me great and I love that the elastic is not too tight. The length and the pockets are really good too. It really bothers me when the pockets are too small to put your phone in. ... Read MoreThese are a great size.

February 5, 2023


Just got my new 5 inch women baggies. Ive got about 10 pair as this is ALL I wear in warm weather & was excited to get these on sale. They have made changes like different (cheap) pocket lining, no seam across the back. The fit is a whole size bigger, NOT flattering. Patagonia has pulled the wool over on us- has no one else noticed??

Response from Patagonia
February 15, 2023

February 1, 2023

Comfortable, great length

I'm taller so I always worry shorts will not fit well and these are great! Comfortable and great for exercise or lounging

January 8, 2023


Love these!

January 4, 2023

I prefer these to the Men's Baggies.

the slight differences to these shorts make me prefer the tailoring and many colors they offer. A major plus is the pockets are regular sized, and they DO NOT have mesh liners in them, which many guys end up cutting out. I also have noticed they drag less and have a slightly more "athletic fit".

December 2, 2022

Miss the old baggies!

I am a baggies super fan, but sadly the cut of these new ones don't work well for me - too large, and loose in the waist. I returned them but am hopeful that the design team makes some tweaks for the next version

BEST Shorts But Need Neutral Colors

Guys, I'm obsessed with these shorts- this is coming from someone who is a total stickler for quality in clothing. I don't like loose seams, materials that wear or don't wash well, discoloration, or any of these things. But when I tell you that these baggies are the best shorts I've ever worn, that is no understatement. They&#x2... Read More7;re comfortable, cute, versatile in style AND fit, as well as indestructible seeming. Their longevity is fabulous, especially considering the price- these bottoms look new after three years!! I would be a happy gal if this were the only pair of shorts I could wear for the rest of my life. However, I am begging the design team to *please* release these in neutral colors! It's the only reason I've looked elsewhere for summer bottoms. Baggies in white, cream, beige, rose, and browns would be so incredibly appreciated. They would appeal to so many women on-the-go who otherwise don't have much room in their closets for the statement colors that baggies are predominantly known for!

October 19, 2022

Very comfortable

These shorts are very comfortable and quick dry. I wore it for sailing and hiking. It's also great for biking due to big and deep pockets.

October 10, 2022

Good and bad

The fabric and construction of these shorts is great. Fast-drying for the hiking trip I purchased for. But the elastic in the waste-band stretched out the 2nd time I wore them and hasn't returned to its original self. Very disappointing, since I have another pair of patagonias I've been wearing for ~15 summers and are in like-new conditio... Read Moren.

October 10, 2022

Exactly what I wanted

I've been trying to find a pair of hiking shorts with pockets that also has an inseam longer than my butt-cheeks. This pair DELIVERS. I'm a bit between the Sm and Med size, but the Med don't fall off. I meant to only wear them for hiking... Now I wear these shorts all the time. A+, excellent product!

October 9, 2022

Perfect Size

As a petite person, its hard to find shorts that fit me right. These are perfect. This piece of clothing is multi-use for water, gardening, running and comfy casual wear!

October 6, 2022

Love these shorts!

Great fit. Really comfortable. Super durable. I wear these all the time and will buy in different colors I love these so much.

October 6, 2022

Great Design

I have never liked baggies because the short legs always just bunched up and were not flattering at all. This higher waist design and maybe also the material makes both the short and longer ones flattering for any figure. The longer style seems to run slightly bigger than the short style, but I didn't try my usual S. Assumed the short and long... Read Moreer styles were the same. BUT, I am so happy I can finally wear baggies! 53 130. Bravo design team!

October 4, 2022

A classic

I've worn baggies all my life. I lived in Florida for 20 years and they were indispensable there. I'm now in the Northeast but with climate change, our summers are longer and hotter. And still my baggies are there for me. They will be my favorite shorts forever. And they last a lifetime.

October 2, 2022

Fit Great/Last Forever

This is a slightly different design of the baggies I've purchased in the past. I had mentioned in a past review that there was no little panel on the back waist and it made me have a Bunchy looking butt. LOL but after wearing them for a while it really isn't that way at all. I hadn't pulled them around evenly, with the seams at the s... Read Moreide so everything looked okay after all. I absolutely love these and I am slowly converting to just Patagonia baggies. My first pair was 1983 and they lasted forever and they just keep getting better. I will definitely get more I have told everyone about them and your company. More people have to get on board with sustainability and what your company is doing. It's awesome. Very pleased. Oh also arrived quickly.

October 2, 2022

My go-to shorts

I don't always feel comfortable in shorts but I do in these. Love the length and that they are higher wasted. I have two pairs with little to no elastic in the waistband and it takes some effort to get them over my butt. Once they are on they are good. These, to my surprise, are much much stretchier! They are the same in every way, just easier... Read More to get on. My go-to summer outfit is now a pair of baggies and a crop tank.

October 1, 2022

Love these shorts!

I am older and appreciate the longer inseam in these 5 inch shorts. The color (orange) is beautiful and the fabric feels very light and moves well while being sturdy and definitely abrasion/tear resistant! I live in Arizona and have slid down rocks and waded through streams with them. They dry very quickly and are very comfortable! I love them!

October 1, 2022

So comfy and the print

So comfy and the print is great I could live in these shorts.

Shorts for life

I live in these in the summer. Deep pockets, light weight, and breezy. Pairs well with an oxford button down for a business casual and life is good!

I love my baggies that I have bought previously, but it seems that the fit and material have since been updated.

Lightweight, comfy, and made from recycled fishing nets!!

I'm 5'4" and 130-135 lbs and ordered a medium - they are a nice loose fit, just like I wanted. These shorts are a fantastic lightweight material that are super comfy during all kinds of movement.

I miss the old Baggies!

I've been wearing Baggies for over 20 years, and while I LOVE the green and zero footprint trend of production, the newly reworked styling of my old favorites just don't work for me. The material is stiff, rough, and too thick. The sizing has also increased...the same size I purchased ten years ago are 2" wider in the waist in the 20... Read More22 version. Please bring back the rear yoke, the subtle stretch, and softer feel of the Baggies we've been loving for all these years! Do the new ones work? Yes. Are they the excellent product we have been raving about for decades? Not even close.

I have been wearing a version of these shorts since I was in my 20s. I am now 66. They are still one of my favorite articles of clothing. I used top wear a pair my daughter handed down to me. I finally bought two new pairs, one in aqua and one in orange. I appreciated buying on sale.

September 18, 2022

I literally own 9 pairs

Could not recommend enough. I own 9 pairs and my roommate owns 6 of baggies in the 2.5 and 5 inch length- vintage and new. U have to get these! We have a baggies rainbow

September 17, 2022

Super comfy

Love these baggie shirts with pockets. Extremely comfortable and fun color. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars had nothing to do with the fit, but rather they changed to a darker orange once washed for the first time. I loved the soft sherbet color it was at purchase.

September 17, 2022

Nice color

I really like these shorts with the pockets the and fabric is very comfortable.

September 17, 2022

I love these shorts--they fit

I love these shorts--they fit great, they don't roll up the way some quick dry shorts tend to do, and I think they might be indestructible. I slid down a very muddy hill and was positive I'd ruined them, but every trace of mud was gone after they were washed. After buying one pair I got two more and wear them every day--

For the size I ordered, it was too tight

Sometimes I order large and it is very large and if I order medium sometimes it is good and sometimes very tight or short.

Baggie Shorts

Love these shorts! I am between a small and medium, so I went with the medium. They are super comfortable! The colors are great too.

September 16, 2022

Waiting to buy until fit is improved!

Leaving review for design team - manifesting a pair that fits me! I like the function of baggies, but none of them fit my curves. The 5" Small is too constricting around my hips (my hips measure 39") , but the 5" medium waist is way too big (my waist measures 26") . I own a size small of the Barely Baggies, but don't love ... Read Morethem because the 2.5" isn't enough to ~cover everything~ (I think because of being curvier) and they ride up which is not comfy. I just use them after surf sessions.

Weird cut to these new design Baggies

I have Baggies that I have been wearing for years- size small- and love. Wanted a couple more pairs; ordered aqua and orange, and due to various reviews I actually ordered a size larger (Medium). Result- mixed feelings on this new design variant to the otherwise forever-wonderful Baggies. Fabric remains fabulous. Pockets, fastening loop in pockets... Read More- all good, and typical of Patagonia paying attention to the needs of the people who wear their clothes. What is weird, is the cut of the shorts themselves. The hook (seam around crotch and up the back) seems super tight- just casually walking gives me a wedgie (does anyone use that term anymore? Sorry if not) because it is too short and narrow. This is a current fashion trend, which like most fashion trends will go away in a couple years; it disturbs me to find Patagonia following a whim of fashion in a garment that is otherwise intended to be worn in an active lifestyle. I for one find it amazingly annoying to walk along and have the shorts ride up into my backside. They are also slender around the hips and the leg- more slender than my older ones, size small, even though these new ones are size medium. And! The waist seems to have all the extra material- voluminous waist (I mean, its ok- there is a drawstring) but the insane thing is all that fabric up there, which tapers to not-much fabric around the hips and butt and hello, the average woman is bigger in the hips and butt, not the waist, so why is all the fabric in the wrong place? I kept the shorts because I really needed them but I am supremely disappointed in Patagonia changing a winning design in order to follow a fashion whim. If it made them a better hiking/running/walking/gardening/boating/whatever short- great. But it didnt. The fit makes them a distracting annoyance now. Why, Patagonia? Bottom line- size up unless you are a stick shape from waist to upper thigh. (I am 5 ft 6 inches, much of my height is in my legs; I weigh 130#, and am fit enough that my doctor called me buff. (I mean, I disagree but whatever). I have a fairly normal body. Just in case anyone thinks I must be shaped weirdly)

Great all activity short

Love these shorts for exercise but also bumming around. The pockets are big enough for a cell phone and the key tie is helpful.

Good but could use a few changes

I loved my black baggies. However, I recently purchased the tiger lily color. The lighter color stains very easily and the stains won't come out. I will stick with darker colors moving forward. Also, when will the womens version get the same butt pocket as the mens? Also would love a similar built in underwear as the mens.

Why did you mess with perfection?

Baggies are so fun because you can generally fit into a couple of sizes and just choose the fit that you like best. I like them a little big, so I have three pre-2022 pairs of 5" baggies in a size small that I LOVE, so despite the negative reviews of the re-design, I thought I'd try a new pair. I wanted to love them, but sadly, I will be ... Read Morereturning them. Now that the design has been simplified (more economical to make now?) to omit the back yoke and piece of fabric to shape the crotch they do not lie the same. They bunch when you walk and flare out and just are not as comfortable. The pockets are more in the front and smaller now too. Does any woman ever ask for smaller pockets? I am trying to imagine the pitch meeting for this re-design: "Hey, you know our iconic baggies with the cult-like following? Let's change them up." It is disappointing for a company that is consistently so reliable with attention to detail and responsiveness to customer needs to revamp a customer favorite. Patagonia, put this batch on clearance and bring back the originals which I would rate 6 stars out of 5.

Bummed about these new pockets :(

Baggies are my all time favorite bottom, and I own more than I care to admit, so I feel crazy giving these less than 5 stars. I will clarify that this is only for the redesign: Im so disappointed that the pockets have been moved to the front of the short. They seem smaller than they used to be, both in depth and width. However, the main issue is in... Read More mobility. It is now impossible to bend over to pick something up with my phone in my pocket without it painfully stabbing me in the stomach and leg. I have developed a bruise after wearing these for one day and doing my daily tasks. The pockets on the sides were great for carrying things and keeping them away from your bending hips, but these push everything towards the groin. I wear these for function, not fit, so its a bummer to see that overrule function in the design.

One of my favorite products!

I already own 3 other pairs of baggies but wanted another to add to the rotation. This season feels a bit lighter than previous seasons. The fit runs a little baggy (to be expected) and is great for casual wear, hiking, and running.

September 12, 2022

Wear them for years

I bought my first pair of baggies over 10 years ago; I wear some version of this short almost every day and I absolutely love them. They've never fallen apart, they look amazing on my body, and they are the perfect amphibious shorts.

Bummer sizing

The sizing in the new baggies are SO OFF. Im usually an small across all patagonia and the small fit like a medium, but my biggest issue is size to size ratio. The small has an absurdly large waist, Im a 26 waist, 37 hips. Pretty standard, the waist I have to cinch all the way down and it still gaps. The xs runs tight across the hips and digs In p...

Better, not great

5'4, 205lb female, typically wear a women's size 16 or XL, with a butt. The fit is better than the 2016 version, but on my body the crotch rides up after walking around for just a few minutes. 3-stars because they're fine for lounging around at home, but I would not wear them for any strenuous activity or prolonged walking. There is ... Read Moreno stretch in the material, which I expected, but takes away from the comfort nonetheless. I kept them because of cute print and because these are the only shorts Patagonia shorts with an elastic band and 5-inch inseam; enough to cover my butt. Perhaps if youʻre a person who has a ʻstraighterʻ body/ less butt, these shorts would be more spacious and comfortable. In general, iʻve found Patagonia shorts and jackets to fit too tightly around my butt compared to other brands like Arcteryx.

I had a pair of baggies I wore for 30 years for rafting and kayaking. I have lost enough weight recently that they were too baggy, so I ordered the new shorts. I love that they are still the classic design with ample pockets and the same fit. I also like the new key loop inside the pocket.

My go-to favorite shorts!

I treated myself to another pair of Baggies, even though my 5 year old ones are still prefect!! I like their casual and comfortable fit. My granddaughter keeps borrowing them, I'm going to get her some of her own!

September 9, 2022

I could live in these

We live on a lake. These shorts are great for most things outdoors. I play tennis and pickle ball in them. Love the pockets for tennis and pickle balls. The length and comfort of these shorts are great. Not too short, there is a lot of bending over picking up balls. I own 4 pair all different colors.

Classic baggie perfection

I like a very loose fit and go up one size (med to lrg). Actual color is softer and brighter than shows on my pc. Color and comfort, the best.

I love my baggies! These shorts are workhorses: sturdy, comfortable, lightweight, comfortable. I ordered two pairs, the solid orange and the lighter blue print, in the medium for a baggier fit. I want to wear them every day!

September 7, 2022

Super comfy

Easy to pull on for early morning activities with great pockets for all things chore related. Lighter fabric for warm weather - watch out for engagement with sharp material!

September 7, 2022

Comfy +

I love these shorts! They are roomy without being super baggy.

September 7, 2022

Redesigned since I last purchased

I own 2 other pairs of baggies and bought my 3rd with the annual sale. The shorts are now a thinner material and seem to have gotten a little bit larger overall. They also dont come as high of a rise. I do not like them as much as my other pairs, but theyre good shorts regardless.

September 7, 2022

Love the new fit!

Love the new fit with the higher waistband and the more streamlined silhouette. Way more flattering for me than the previous iterations! Comfort wise, I prefer the older fabric covered inner waistband versus the exposed elastic. One weird thing is that the fit is slightly different between colors; the Tiger Lilly orange fit perfectly, but the Fresh... Read More Teal color fit a little larger. Teal are physically wider and longer when i hold them up to compare. Not a huge issue. Overall still 5/5

Best shorts ever!

I love these shorts so much! They look and feel great, and perhaps even more important to me, they are super durable! They are cool in the Texas heat, and the dry really fast. The black ones are my favorite, which I've worn most of the year for at least six years now. They look like they did when I first got them! I've since added 4 other...

Awkwardly baggy

I get that the name of these shorts is 'baggie' but they really are TOO baggy and not attractive, and I didn't feel good having them on. The bright orange color is fun. I returned them.

September 6, 2022

New and improved

Slimmer than my old pairs which I believe were a 2002 varietal, longer inseam too? Altogether very nice short.

September 6, 2022


I have been wearing Baggies for your and they never disappoint! Great fit and do comfy I wear a lot! Perfect short length

September 5, 2022

Nice easy dry well fitting short

For those of us with big hips having a large fit well is a real pleasure. Color is great and it dries fast.

September 3, 2022

Nice longer length

Ws Baggies 5in longer length feels better for coverage when kayaking(seat), walking or casual wear. The inner waist band has the elastic band exposed and is not really stretchy. IMHO, I would prefer the inner waist band to be covered with material and stretchy like the 2.5in Barely Baggies(which is a little thicker at the waist but NOT noticeable a... Read Morend still very comfortable). Both Baggies 5in and Barely Baggies 2.5 really takes a beating with NO no fading. Note the lengths differ in Fit so here are my sizes: 5in is Relaxed fit size =XS Baggies 2.5in Regular fit size =S Barely Baggies

September 2, 2022

Great shorts

I thought I reviewed these but I guess not. I really like them - the length is perfect especially for aging legs. They are a bit tight in the waist area but if you are slim that may not be a problem. It would be super awesome if they had back pockets! Overall very happy with them though and would recommend - bought several colors and hope to have t... Read Morehem for many years to come.

Great Old Faithful

Ordered a pair of baggies for the first time in a loooong time but I was tempted with the great colors and a little longer inseam. I'm 5' 2" and 112 lbs, the XS is perfect. Really comfortable fit but not too baggy. Will use them on the boat and pool side.

September 2, 2022

I have a similar style

I have a similar style short from 12 years ago that I wear to this day. They fit like butter. This is my second recent purchase of the same short and while the waist and leg fit is the same, the newer pairs go up the butt so to speak. I have a curvier waist/butt/thigh ratio, so this problem happens often in bottoms of any kind. I fell for the older... Read More Patagonia shorts because they somehow hit the sweet spot in all measurements and hiking was so comfy. These newer shorts work alright save for tugging at hiking wedgies.

Horrible fit

They fit has been completely redesigned and does not work for me at all. There is superfluous, bunchy fabric in the front and the pockets are smaller than before. The pockets used to run alongside the seam but now they are slightly angled, which I like a lot less. I play tennis in the previous design and the pockets were great to hold balls, but th... Read Moree new pocket design is too small to carry two tennis balls comfortably. I thought that perhaps they would fit better in a smaller size, but I tried those on and still had the same issues.

Old time favorite short

Been buying these for quite awhile. A great all a rounder that works well while pulling weeds or kayaking. Great selection on prints and colors. A favorite.

August 31, 2022

Why no back pocket?

They're fine, not mind blowing but fine. Thick material. Good for hiking, not good for trail running. Why does the men's version get a back pocket but the women's doesn't? Makes zero sense.

Love Love Love

I like these shorts so much. I get separation anxiety on laundry day. I wear them climbing and they are the perfect length so that my harness doesn't chafe.

Favorite quick dry shorts

I wear these bad boys to the beach, hiking, walking around town, or when I'm working on the farm. They dry quick and are easy to clean so they are PERFECT! They are a flattering fit and seriously my favorite shorts. I probably have 8 pairs of baggies between my pairs of the 5" and the 2". 10/10 would recommend!

Completely different shorts

I've been wearing Patagonia Baggies since the 90's and buy a few new pairs every couple of years. This year, I was surprised to see so many options still available in August (they usually sell out); now I know why. These are completely different shorts. The best way I can describe them is that, when I'm wearing these new Baggies, I c... Read Morean always tell I have them on because they're bunching or binding or constricting somewhere. The pockets are different and the waistband is weird. This isn't just a tweak as in years past. They took out the yoke, which completely changes the silhouette. The classic Baggies were great because the fit flattered and you never noticed you had them on--even when hiking or climbing or doing lawn work. Patagonia--any plans to bring back the Classic Baggie? Also, I cut my tags off and washed my recent purchase before I realized they're completely different--can I still return? Thank you.

Thank you for submitting this review, Deann; this feedback is very helpful not only to other customers but also to our product designers. We made some significant design changes to these shorts this season, with the intent of improving the fit by tilting the side seams and removing the back yoke for what was meant to be a more flattering fit​. We're sorry to hear this wasn't the case here. We want you to be happy with everything you get from us, so we will reach out to you about return options.

Good quality and great length

I ordered these thinking they might be too long but they are a perfect length and I love them!

Shallower pockets :( but good otherwise!

The 2022 version has a pocket design that diminishes the capacity and security of the pockets in 2 ways, as compared to the 2021 version: (1) 2021 pockets have an in-seam opening, which maximizes the area of the pocket-front in a way that holds in essentials like cell phones much better, whereas the 2022 pockets have a slanted pocket opening that l... Read Moreeaves an exposed triangle; and (2) 2021 pockets were way deeper. I *much* prefer the 2021 pockets, as at least one other reviewer has noted. Otherwise, the 2022 version seems good! Originally bought my 2021 pair for a kayaking/camping trip, and it did the job beautifully - sturdy but also flexible, and very quick-dry. Now, I wear it everywhere to do everything, including on summer walks to the beach, where I continue to benefit from the quick-dry action when I wade too deep into (or get caught unawares by!) the waves. Looks like my new 2022 pair are about the same, except the pockets. Please bring back the 2021 pocket design! :)

Great Shorts! Sizing was strange.

I love the color and the fit; they are so comfy! my favorite non-denim summer shorts. I wear them casually but also for bicycling, hiking, and paddleboarding. I haven't gone swimming in them yet so can't comment on how they feel in the water or the drying time. They're very breathable and great for keeping cool. The biggest downsid... Read Moree of these shorts is the variation in fit between different colors. I've never owned baggies before so i went to my local patagonia shop to try on the different lengths and find my size, but i knew i wanted Fresh Teal. The 2in baggies in Fresh Teal (size Medium) fit well but since there is no inner lining when you sit cross-legged your underwear is visible up the leg holes! The shop didn't have the 5in in Fresh Teal so i tried on the mediums in black - and they wouldn't fit over my hips. None of the black pairs in medium would fit over my hips. I moved up to a large in black and they were too big! so, i grabbed a different color (sunshine dye: current blue) and the mediums fit me perfectly. I tried on the tidepool blue in medium just to see and they fit me differently than both of the other colors. It was very surprising and made me worried to order my color online without trying it on first. I had low expectations when i ordered but thankfully they fit when they arrived! I would also appreciate a butt pocket like the men's baggies have.

August 25, 2022

Best Hybrid Shorts

I use them for everything. They are quick dry, durable, and cute! They have that baggie look, hence the name, with a synch waist. I pair them with a tight shirt, loose shirt (tuck the front, or a crop top. They are part of my weekend summer uniform!

August 23, 2022

Dont go with the black

I have these in two colors. The orange feel incredible and so comfortable. The black has a weird stiff fit, seems more meant for a males body than a female. My friend has the exact issue with the black but loved the turquoise one. Will try and return if possible. Dont order online, try it on at the store first. The orange is amazing.

Don't fit or feel like classic baggies

I am bummed that Patagonia has changed perfection with its Baggies.

I bought three pairs of baggies last year and was so excited to buy two more this year. Sadly, the cut has changed so much that I had to return these shorts.

August 5, 2022

Sizing a little weird

I have purchased these shorts for many years, and I have a lot of them. But I found the sizing a little funky. One size sort of too big/off, sized down and definitely too small. Still love these baggies, and yes, they are a little baggy.

August 1, 2022

Runs small

I definitely don't agree with the size guide for something that is supposed to be a loose fitting short. According to the size guide, I would wear a medium, meanwhile the large was too tight on me, so I bought an XL. The XL fits me how shorts called "baggies" should. I should note that I do have a size 8/10 waist and size 12/14 thigh... Read Mores, which sometimes accounts for me having to size up one size, but not two, so I do think they run at least one size small. I do wish the waist tie cinched a bit more, given my waist to thigh size ratio. When I am walking a lot they do ride up a bit in the thigh area and have to be pulled down occasionally to prevent chafing, although I realize that might be more due to my body type rather than the shorts themselves. Other than that️, I am very happy with these! They were comfortable to wear walking around all day during the heat wave that just happened in Seattle. I bought the bright light orange color, which is a really cheerful and fun nod to the 80s/90s. I wouldn't exactly call these shorts "flattering," on me, but that's not the reason I bought them, so I don't care. They're very functional and I think they're also fun.

First time trying Baggies

I haven't seen many reviews from those who bought larger sizes, so wanted to add my two cents. I was hesitant to try these as I'm a 16-20 (240 lbs, 52 inch hip) and am often sized out of conventional brands, but I needed a pair of casual shorts that weren't jeans. I bought a XXL and I'm happy with the fit. They were a little tig... Read Moreht in the hips when I first tried them on, but they loosened as I wore them. There is a bit of an a-line feel to them overall (tighter at the hip then the legs kind of flair out), but overall they're comfortable and fit well on me. I wouldn't size up even if it was offered. It would be great to see Patagonia commit to extending their sizing because everyone, regardless of their size, deserves well-made and environmentally responsible outdoor apparel.

July 23, 2022

Dislike the New Fit

I agree with many of the reviews. These were the perfect all around outdoor hiking short. My go to for years. The new fit is tight in butt and straight up and down. They are uncomfortable when hiking and sitting. I love the color but Im unhappy with the fit.

"Fitted Baggies" is better term for these

I LIVE in these shorts in the summer and have 4 pairs from previous years. This year's iteration is tighter in the rear end so the legs of the shorts feel a little restrictive when bending over, taking a big stride, etc. I wear these for everything from trail running to hiking to running errands. I wore this new version on a super hot, humid l...

Super comfy but small around the hips

Prefer these over the mens version

Ill be completely honest, I wear these as a guy. I prefer the women's baggies over the mens for a few reasons. 1. No liner 2.

baggie smalls

Usually a medium in Pat bottoms but sized up because this version is somewhat unforgiving if you've got glutes. Wore them every day on a week long SUP trip. Love the deep front pockets.

Inaccurate colors and using a new pattern?

I ordered two new pairs, but was quite disappointed by the changes made to the pockets - they seem significantly shallower and were made out of a mesh material rather than the same fabric as the shorts themselves (like all my previous pairs of baggies are). Additionally, I found that neither the sumac red or dark camel colors were true to the photo... Read Mores, the red was quite a bit more orange than expected and the tan was noticeably lighter than the color shown.

I bought a couple pairs of these for m'lady as casual shorts in the summer because she works at an outdoor venue in the humid NC heat. The solid earth tone colors are nonchalant enough to get away with in her semi-casual work environment, and they've turned into her go-to shorts for every warm weather activity.

Love these shorts!

They fit perfectly and look great. The fabric seems extremely durable. Love the side pockets. Based on the quality, I expect to wear these for years.

Great outdoor shorts

Great for outdoor activities. The only issue is it fits great through the thighs, however its little difficult to pull on as the waist doesn't have much give. My daughter had the same issue and is 10 pounds lighter than me. Her friends complain about the same thing. Would be great if the waist is slighter bigger.

Great over the bathing suit

Great over the bathing suit beach walking shorts! Looked everywhere for shorts with big pockets- gotta take the phone! Love these!!! Now have 4 pair!

Perfect length - fit depends on body proportions

5in shorts are perfect - still feminine, but don&#x27;t ride up. I tried on several colors and noticed some minor size differences among them (not dramatic, I was able to pull them all on, but since my butt and waist juuuust fit the medium, it was definitely noticeable). The black run smaller than the others enough so that I would need to size up b... Read Moreecause they were mashing my butt, and I checked this by trying two different pairs. Overall, the amount of space you need in the butt and waist will determine what size you get, I think, and if you're on the edge of sizing, they offer no stretch but the size guide is pretty accurate. The leg holes are plenty roomie and that's coming from someone with fairly athletic legs. I tried on a L and the legs were too baggy. In order of small to big, all size M: - black - pink - teal - orange/royal blue/navy blue (all about the same) - blue pattern (noticeably a little roomier in the butt, not so much so that I'd change sizes though)

Perfect for every activity

I truly LOVE these shorts and wear them several times a week. They are so comfortable and work for every summer endeavor. The higher rise waist and 5&quot; inseam is even bike friendly, I wear them over a liner when I am riding and they never fail. They are truly quick to dry and unlike some performance fabrics don&#x27;t compromise against the ski... Read Moren comfort.

Colors are beautiful. Fit is

Colors are beautiful. Fit is very comfortable (I like clothes loose). I love all Patagonia clothing I have purchased and I wear them frequently

Love the color and fit

The fabric is great as well. Very happy with my purchase. In fact I bought another pair!

Great quality, 0 stretch

I&#x27;m a big fan of these shorts overall. I was worried the inseam might be too long (nope, it&#x27;s perfect) and the color would be too wild (sumac red is a great balance and works as a neutral!). My only gripe is the lack of stretch. The length, waist, and width around my legs is perfect. They&#x27;re just a touch too tight around the hips/but... Read Moret on my athletic/curvy build. If you're unsure on sizes, I'd go up just for the fact they aren't forgiving as the fabric has 0 stretch to it.

Hi Abby, we're so sorry to hear about the fit issue with the Baggies. If you find the constriction at the waist too bothersome, please feel free to begin a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at any time.

Great, utilitarian, but runs very small

The waist is okay, but the butt is really tight. Grabbing it in one size larger after trying to manage with them. But otherwise, great, versatile shorts.

telegraphs casual

Buy BIG for ultimate casual elan. I wear them to the market and walking 7 am East River loops. I'm 64, and living my best life summer-to-summer, smile-to-smile.

Best cut in years!

I work in outdoor education/wildlife biology so I live out of Patagonia Baggies for 3/4 of the year and I typically buy one or two new pairs every summer to keep the rotation fresh. I can say with enthusiasm that the cut of the short this year is superior to the past 4 years at least. Even bloated, there is no uncomfort pulling on, and wearing thes... Read Moree shorts. The netplus fabric is also sturdy but lightweight and feels really good (almost silky), dare I say BETTER, than ever. I really hope someone can pass on my enthusiasm and love to the design team on this one. I am such a happy camper and I cannot wait to wear the green and khaki colors not only in the field but also in semi professional outdoor ed settings. We have BAGGIES that are BAGGY again!!

Great Shorts-if you buy 2 sizes too big

I love the material and utilitarian style of these shorts! They&#x27;re lightweight, quick to dry, and virtually indestructible. HOWEVER, the fit is odd and they run very, very small. I normally wear a small or a medium in shorts. I had to buy a large in these. Getting them on was a struggle with the mediums, and once on they fit perfectly in the w... Read Moreaist but felt like they were cutting my butt in half. This caused the material across my hips and butt to pull, and made it difficult to even put my hands in the pockets. I couldn't imagine wearing them around the house, much less hike! I ended up with the large which is enormous in the waist, but fits in the baggy style around my hips, butt, and legs which is what I wanted. I have a muscular butt and thighs, so if you're of a similar build, size way up. For comparison, the large baggies are the same size as a small pair of shorts from Mountain Hardware in the hips and butt. These are definitely shorts you need to try on in the store, and you should expect to size up. For reference, Im 5 ft 3in tall, and I weigh 135lbs.

I love these shorts. I

I love these shorts. I have 5 pairs now. I bought the most recent pair to support your efforts cleaning up fishing net. I love the orange color. I saw a comment from a woman wishing there were both 5 inch and 7 inch length for women. I agree.

great length and fit. Just

great length and fit. Just the right amount of roominess. Love the rust color. And light weight enough for our hot humid summers

Truly so much better than I thought

To be honest, I wasnt expecting much. Im a larger body who loves a company with good values. So I always so badly want to support, but cant always get what I want, in my size. I went on a limb to order these after reading some iffy reviews about fit &amp; size. As a woman with a wider stomach, these are so forgiving. I range btwn a 14-18 &amp; I lo... Read Moreve them. They are SO comfy & in this 100+ heat, I feel like Im wearing nothing! Sadly, if you were bigger than me, its probably a no-go. So I really hope Patagonia does the work to make these & all their products accessible to those existing in larger bodies!
