Terribly awkward fit.
The new design of these shorts is mind-boggling. They fit awkwardly, ride up in the front & or back within 10 steps. The pockets are too small for my phone. Just awful. I don't have a Patagonia store within 5 hours of me, so I can't return to a store for free. I have to pay $5 to return by mail. Unfair.
We're sorry to hear that the fit and revised design on these has been disappointing. We welcome a return under our Ironclad Guarantee and we'll reach out to you by email to further assist you. A possible alternate product could be our [Women's Outdoor Everyday Shorts](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-outdoor-everyday-shorts-4-inch/57456.html) which has also has a relaxed fit, similar inseam and fabric (with 5% spandex for a bit of stretch) plus bigger pockets for more storage. Thanks for taking the time to send us a review, Nadine!
Love walking my dog in these. I am normally a size 6 - 8, but had to get a large. There is no stretch to these for someone who has a lot of their weight in their mid section and hips. Love the color, love the comfy baggy feel. No other shorts like this! Recommend, but order a size up if you are more pear shape
Way smaller than I expected.
Love the color, fabric is different but ok I suppose. If you are a tall (5'10") curvy gal like me, I'd most definitely recommend sizing up. I got an XL and they are so tight on my thighs and bum, so I can't even wear them :(
Thank you so much for writing this review and we are very sorry to hear about the sizing and fit issues you've encountered with this product. Please know that you are more than welcome to [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) your item as we want you to be completely satisfied with all of your Patagonia purchases. In the meantime, please rest assured that we will be passing this feedback along to our Product Design Team.
Baggies best ever
I love my baggies. Live in them. Read reviews of this season, i sized down from L because 10% body weight loss. Love that these are more fitted and the material is lighter, softer and the stitching and pockets feel neater. I ordered 3 colors and would order more, as they are my favorite after 7 years ordering.
2023 batch of baggies
I have several pair of Patagonia baggies 5 inches from past years. Size medium. They are wonderful. Comfortable, fit very well, very durable, for every day where. But this new batch of 2023 baggies brand so large that my regular mediums are loose in the waist band and very baggy in the sides to the point they look like dresses. Please go back to th...

Do not be fooled by the redesigned fit
The redesigned fit of this shirt is horrible. They fit in the waist, but the band doesnt stretch to go over hips. The legs are parachute-like. Last years baggies were nothing like this. These are both too big and too small at the same time. Such a disappointment! If you have no curves at all, size down and they might work fine for you.
Thank you for sharing this feedback, Christi; this is very helpful to our designers and also other customers. We're glad to see you're returning these, and we hope we can do better by you in the future.
I love these shorts- super versatile, easy to move around in, and an adjustable fit! The one note I will mention is that they are a lighter green than I initially expected. Think of something between khaki and army green. I ended up liking the color even more than the color I was expecting, but its nice to know!
I bought a size larger
I bought a size larger bc I really like the baggy look. I am long-waisted and wish the rise were higher but bc the shorts are so baggy, they are still very comfortable. I like to wear them when I am hanging around at home. The material is nice and light, and the colors are unusual.
Comfortable and good-looking
I got these in orange and love the color and the lightweight fabric. I most recently wore them for hiking in a highly vegetated area and they held up well to thorns, etc. It's true that they are a bit hard to pull over the hips, but when I tried a smaller size as recommended by some reviewers, they were too small. Once you get them on they fee... Read Morel great.
I bought theses Baggies as a birthday gift for my friend, who is skeptical of my devotion to the products AND principles of Patagonia, an obviously high end outfitter.

Read Moremountains, you only need ONE pair of shorts. Baggie are awesome.
Between sizes but live in these
I started out with an XS which fits amazingly but is a little snug getting over the hips as there is a limit to elastic stretch. I tried a small this time and found they are on the big side. I still really love the look of both, but will go with an XS going forward as the small is a bit too baggy.
Size was much smaller than listed on the size chart
These short would probably be great other than they were MUCH smaller than listed on the size chart. I ordered the small and I could barely get them on and based upon the size chart they should have fit me. I returned them immediately
Hey Jayne, thank you for the review. We're sorry to hear that the size chart was misleading. We double checked and the size chart says the size small should fit a 28.5" waist to a 29.5" waist. The shorts themselves have a 14.5" waist laying flat and relaxed, so they should still work if you fall within that measurement bracket. If you need garment measurements in the future, please connect with customer service and we'd be happy to assist. We also offer free [exchanges](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Great style and fit- no build in underwear
Love this style and fit but I give it three stars because there's no built in underwear.
We appreciate your feedback, Erin! You might want to check out our [Women's Multi Trails Short](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-multi-trails-shorts-5-half-inch/57631.html), with a regular fit, lightweight polyester/spandex fabric blend, similar pockets and inseam, but with a brief liner.
Didn't fit as expected
They're a bit tighter across the middle, below the waist, than expected. Designed for folks with very narrow hips, maybe?

A Not-So-Great Update
I've been wearing and "collecting" Baggies for about 30+ years now so I've had them over many seasons, and I seem to buy new ones each year. Starting from a few seasons ago, the changes starting to show and this year is probably the most drastic. However, I still bought some because of the colors that I really wanted - the mater... Read Moreial itself is much more lightweight, feels thinner and not as robust. Then the fit - so much narrower through the legs, backside and somewhat in the waist. The older versions are much more flattering and comfortable and made me appreciate the feminine cut. I normally wear an XL in baggies but I felt more comfortable in the XXL this year even though it's actually too big for me and I have to roll the waist. Please change them back to the older version as they are so well loved among all and so much nicer to wear. Even the pocket lining and depth feels a bit off. I do love some of the colors this year and the Garden Green is the BEST - perfect Neutral!
Women 5" Baggies
I love these for running, have used every day for 3 years. As a runner, my butt muscles are getting stronger and my XL size has gotten tight across the butt. Going up to the XXL is too big of a leap. Way too much fabric at the sides. The waist works at it's smallest size, but just barely. Don't want them falling off when I run. There shou... Read Moreld be a size in between the XL and XXL. Great design, though. Love the concept.
Durable and cute, but fit is slightly off
I like the variety of colors available for these shorts. They fit well in the thighs and are a little loose as the name suggests, which is comfortable and flattering. The waist is very small - it is not a problem for me, but does create a bit of an unflattering bulge in the front of the shorts. Overall I like these shorts for casual use, they seem ...

One was perfect, the other was okay.
I ordered the same 5 inch baggies in two different colors. Same exact product, just different colors. The navy blue ones were exactly what I was hoping they would be!

They were too large
Hey Diane, thanks for the review. We're sorry the shorts ended up being too big! If you haven't sent them back yet, you can begin the exchange process for a size down on [this page](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html). Please feel free to reach out if any questions come up.
Women need pockets!
I will continue to prefer the mens baggies until the womens have the same size pockets. I tried a womens pair to see if I liked the fit, but I couldn't even fit my phone in the pocket without it falling out.
Thanks for the feedback, Sara. The men's and women's Baggies have different cuts, and overall the men's will be bigger in proportion. Patterning dictates how big we can make a pocket, but we understand the frustration. We'll share your thoughts with our product team.

Can one own too many Baggies!?
I have been a huge fan of these shorts since I received my first pair in 2018, which I still wear and love. I probably own upwards of seven or eight pairs now, and truthfully, they are the only shorts I wear.

I recently bought the Joy Pitch Blue print and absolutely love these for casual shorts. I then bought the Surfboard Yellow print and they fit a little more snug than the first ones.

I have been on the hunt for casual hiking/camp shorts for some time now. I was hopeful that these would fit but even with the recent size increase, they still are too small. Id really like to see Patagonia extend their sizes even more to include more plus size women. Im dying to own these shorts and would buy every single color.
Hi Abbie! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We really appreciate your feedback here on our sizing, and we're sorry to hear that we aren't currently carrying the sizes you seek. We have no doubt that people of all sizes have a love for the outdoors and sustainable practices, and we would like to expand our brand to better reflect that-- extended sizing is definitely a priority as our brand grows. Each season we add more depth in sizing to dozens of new and existing styles in our line, so you can be sure that we'll continue to add more options in the future. We are moving in the right direction, albeit slowly, and your feedback is highly valuable toward this goal.
Baggies are the bomb
These are my second pair of baggies. I got some old black ones second-hand last year. This time I got like a khaki color that was on sale. The current newer model has more flattering side seams.

New 2023 version is just terrible.
Wow these USED to be my favorite shorts of all time. The new 2023 version feels way cheaper and not high quality at all.

The pockets are no longer lined with the shorts material and are smaller in capacity. The fabric is much much th... Read Moreinner as well.

2023 version changed for the worse
I've been wearing baggies for years and love the shorts despite some of the wonkiness of the fit. Thanks to Patagonia's great gear warranty I was able to replace an old pair that were ripped pretty badly on a river rock, and I have to say the latest version of the women's baggies are a downgrade in terms of quality and fit. The 2023 ... Read Moreversion are smaller than the 2021 version, the fit is weirder, and the fabric is quite different IMO. Patagonia historically SUCKS at making clothes to fit women with any sort of butt or hips, and the latest version of these shorts is such a strange fit. The waist fits fine, but the hips and leg holes are smaller and less baggy! The material is also thinner, less nylon-y, and more fabric-y feeling if that makes sense. I will still wear these shorts because they are so good for hiking and swimming, but I am sad they don't live up to past versions of the short.
Fit is too straight
I don't know what changed in the fit of the baggies in the past 2 years, but I was so sad to received my new pair and realize what a slim fit they are. I am definitely on the curvier side, but my older large baggies have always fit me very loose and comfortably. These are definitely built for a straighter body type. Please bring back the old f...

Waist too tight, fabric too baggy
I have five other pairs of baggies, most recently one purchased six months ago, and they always fit right. This time, these don't seem like a Patagonia product at all. The waist is too tight, and the rest of the shorts are too short and loose. I need to return it. Please advise.

Cute but not the right fit
I want to love these shorts! I'm in between sizes. The medium looks good when on, but is hard to pull over my hips, and is not long enough to sit properly over my hip bones. It causes some constriction when lifting my knee high, and when squatting, and bunching in the front that doesn't look right. The large is too baggy, and still sits f... Read Moreunny on my waist. For reference my measurements are 29" waist, 41" hips. I have an slim/athletic build, flat stomach, hourglass shape, they just barely fit around my hips when pulling on.

I have a pair of baggies that are a medium and probably 6 years old, I love them but I have yet to find a pair to replace them.

Back pocket please Patagonia!
These are my go to shorts. I love the durability and fit and length (Im 5 11, so these hit perfect). But why oh why oh why do the mens shorts have a back pocket and the womens do not? Patagonia, you guys are better than this :) might actually try the mens for my next pair.
So I ended up with a large after exchanging my medium at the store. The medium fits like a small.

This is my second time writing this review. The first time, I never received a confirmation email which is funny because I submitted another review for a different product, and that came through just fine. First, these shorts were perfect when I tried the perennial purple in store in size small, my usual size. Bought those and had to order the Su...

What I received in the mail was a pair of shorts that were slightly tighter around the waist and hips, and my husband noticed one leg was longer than the other. I looked in the mirror and sure enough, the right side of the shorts were longer by a couple of centimeters. I am surprised by the low quality control for Patagonia and the weird sizing in not just shorts but for the Women's clothing in general. I had to buy a size Large in their women's t-shirt recently and I am 5'6"/27" waist/38" hips/130 lbs/34B bra size... Highly irregular sizing.
Quality control is lacking
These shorts are great when they are made correctly. I tried on the perennial purple color in store, in my usual size small, and they fit perfectly so I bought them.

I have had Patagonia Baggies for years and have always worn a medium but bought a pair from the store during Covid without trying them on and they were quite a bit tighter than my old baggies so I decided it was time to move up a size.

Comfy and Functional
I sized up from a medium to a large to get that right loose but comfortable fit. The material is light weight and comfortable on the skin, the pockets are a game changer, and the length is great on my 5 10 legs to be appropriate but still short for the hot weather.

I am a size 12 and normally wear a Large. I wanted them to be a bit baggy so I sized up to an XL. I was really excited to use these for backpacking this summer.

Sadly Patagonia has destroyed what was an almost perfect pair of shorts. They used to have a cute back yoke and pockets that sat at the seam.

Switched to Men's. Women's Unwearable.
I've been a big baggie fan since I was a teenager. As old pairs have worn out, I've replaced them with men's or boy's pairs because of the extreme changes they've made to the fit of the women's edition in recent years. Unfortunately, the new new women's edition are basically unwearable for me because the sizing an... Read Mored fit is so bizarre.

I ordered the small and Medium in two colors. The small ones in orange were too tide, the small ones in aqua fit a little better and the medium ones are too baggie in the front. This is my first time buying these shorts and I was excited to buy them but in my opinion, these shorts should be a little more stretchy.
Im normally a medium, and while the mediums fit in the waist they were tight at the hips so I recommend ordering a size up, especially if youre on the curvy side. Other than that the material is nice and comfortable and the pockets are a good size. Tags are easily ripped away(you will want to theyre itchy).
I ordered 2 pairs of these baggies in XS, one black and one green. The green fits perfectly but unfortunately the sizing is inconsistent and the black is much smaller so Ill have to return them.

no longer "baggie"!
I buy a new pair every year, live in my 5" baggies all Summer...new fit feels way too tight, cant walk a block without them riding up. Will have to try a size up now, hope they work better
Thank you for your feedback, Lauren! We have made a few revisions to all of our Baggies over the past few years and we're sorry the changes are not a good fit. Our online exchanges for color or size are free of charge. We recommend taking a look at a couple other [Women's Shorts](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/womens-shorts) styles like our Outdoor Everyday Shorts or Trailfarer Shorts. For any returns under our Ironclad Guarantee, please don't hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service team. We'll be glad to help!
Cute color but disappointing fit
These Baggies in orange were the first pair of Patagonia shorts I have purchased (I have many Patagonia jackets/vests/shirts). As soon as I start walking around, the crotch rides up in the back, even as I try to tug the shorts down. I thought it's because I'm more used to a 3" inseam but I have this same issue with another pair of 3&... Read Morequot; Patagonia elastic waist shorts. These shorts are definitely roomy on me, and it's not tugging or tight anywhere else, but something about the construction makes them ride up the back as soon as I'm in motion, so I will have to return it. I have not experienced this issue with other similar brands.
Thank you for your review, Jennifer. We're sorry to hear that these shorts are riding up! We definitely want you to feel happy with your purchase, so you're welcome to send them back for a refund or merchandise credit. You can return through our online portal, or in store if you happen to live by one of our retail locations.

Not like they use to be!!
I have worn/ bought these shorts for over a decade and the quality has gone downhill over the last 2 years..they are thinner and run smaller than they use to be...these were my favorite shorts!!
We appreciate your feedback and we're sorry that the purchase was disappointing! Our design team revised the Women's Baggies Shorts in Spring 2018 and Spring 2022, with slight fit modifications and utilizing recycled materials wherever possible. The fabric has gone from a 4.3-ounce nylon to a 4.9-ounce NetPlus recycled nylon with a PFC-free DWR finish. Please don't hesitate to reach out to our [Customer Service](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) team if you have any questions about product measurements, returns or exchanges. We'll be glad to help!
Weird fit but comfy
Bought these shorts because they are a classic style and my favorite color was on sale. Tried two sizes - XXS and XS. Both fit, but neither fit exactly right. Both sizes were narrow in the waist, and hard to pull over my hips - almost like they are designed for a men's fit. The pockets seem too far to the front of the shorts. The XXS was a bit... Read More too tight for comfy casual wear, but the XS felt a bit too baggy and wide (once I shimmied it over my hips). Overall, a solid pair of shorts but maybe not designed with women's bodies in mind.
I love these shorts and this color! The in seams don't quite match up.. witch probably wouldn't bother the average jo but as a seamstress it definitely gives me a little ocd haha
Hey Brittany, thanks for the review. It sounds like you might have a quality control issue on your hands.

Fun for summer
I like the fun bright colors, medium length, and relaxed fit. The proportions aren't perfect for my body (loose in the waist, snugger around the hips) but the drawstring helps. As others commented the pocket placement is a bit odd, too far forward. I am a size 8 or 10 and sized up to large; I think medium would be too snug.
