We recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. They still offer solid UV protection—it’s just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.Learn More

Practical shorts for pandemic times
The pockets are super roomy, and I have a giant wallet & smartphone that most shorts pockets don't accommodate. I saw other reviews commenting on not so flattering pockets BUT-- they will hold all your stuff securely while biking and walking around. Like you could handily use them to hold a 12 oz. bottle of water. The waist is cut a little... Read More narrow , which is always the case for me in patagonia clothing. However, my usual size 14 was really uncomfortable in the waist while the legs fit-- so the waist runs on the small side, at least as of 2021 season (and earlier). IMO they'd be great shorts for gardening too!
I'm a late 50's gal with thicker waist at 5'6", 150lb, so size 12 shorts a a little loose in the hips, but easy to move in for house repair and yard, and for walks with the dog, neighborhood biking. Basically, once I'm off work, these go on and I'm moving. Tough fabric but not heavy with lot of deep pockets. Easy to w... Read Moreear in hot summer days. No fraying of the fabric seen. Washes great. Expect to wear for years.
I like the shorts, but they are a bit long and a bit wide in the leg. Granted, I have slim legs. I miss your stand-up shorts and would love to see them come back for women at something like a 6 inch length.
We'll pass this along to our product designers. Thanks for your feedback on the fit and style of these shorts, Julie!
Great fit, great comfort,
These shorts are exactly what I have been looking for in casual wear shorts. They are a bit stiff, but the fabric does give, the pockets are deep & plentiful. But most of all, the length is exactly what I like. So many shorts are too short. These are a normal & comfortable length.
I dont think the grommets on the pockets are a good idea. They may be fashionable but are just another thing to fail or get hooked on something. Stick with the old stand up shorts with the reinforced pockets that are sewn (tacked). I had to replace the first shorts I bought because having never been worn but washed before wearing, a grommet fell of... Read Moref. Not a positive feeling that the shorts are going to last.
We're so sorry to hear you had an issue. Everything we make is backed by our Ironclad Guarantee and we'll always take care of you if the shorts fail. We'll pass along the feedback to our design team.
Usually love all Patagonia but not this
These shorts were very boxy and park ranger look alike...usually size 8 fits nicely but these were huge and loose. Kinda boxy and not feminine at all.
Hi Cindy, we're sorry to hear that the Women's All Seasons Hemp Canvas Shorts - 8" we're as feminine as you had wanted them to be. We do have a different length in this short that may suite your needs better. You can find the Women's All Seasons Hemp Canvas Shorts - 5" [here](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-all-seasons-hemp-canvas-shorts-5-inch/57096.html?dwvar_57096_color=SNBL).
Good shorts but fabric is already wearing out
These shorts fit me well, but the material isn't very durable. The fabric is already starting to fray and look discolored, even though I've only worn them a couple times. I was hoping for something more sturdy.
We are so sorry to hear about the fraying and discoloration, Mercedes. We certainly expect more from our product and encourage you to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) these back. We'd be happy to get you an exchange or refund.
Not For Curvy Chicas!
I really wanted these to work for summer hours working in Parks and Rec in AZ. I have the hemp overalls thats I love. The 6's were so tight I could barely get them on, the 8's were still tight on my thighs but gapping horribly in the back. For reference I am 5'6" and 150lbs with most of my weight in my butt and thighs, with a sm... Read Moreall waist. The stand up crops fit me perfectly in a 6. Finding athletic attire with a small waist is a huge ordeal.
Awesome Shorts - Thumbs Jump for me
I read some of the review and was not sure at first what size to get so I order my size and a size up. The shorts are true to size. I love the pockets in this shorts. They are very versatile. In fact, I bought another pair in a different color. I wore them while traveling. The shorts are very comfortable and because of the number of pockets, I was ... Read Moreable to put varies things in my pockets, ids, cell phones, coins without any worries.
Durable fabric, funky back pockets
Im 5 feet tall, and about 120 pounds. I have a long torso; my hips are somewhat slim, but I have wider than average thighs. I normally wear size 26 pants so I chose the size 2 shorts and they fit me pretty great. I love the green color. The only drawback was the odd back pocket design, which look like front pockets (I dont really want to look like ... Read MoreIm wearing my shorts backwards). Though all the pockets are deep and overall very comfy. Would recommend.
Durable hemp work short
I work outdoor maintenance and ordered this short for summer work. The fabric seems durable. The pockets, inseam length, and higher waist seem practical and functional for active use. I initially ordered a 10, a size that I do wear in Patagonia (typically M/8-10), however, it was fuller in the fit. I exchanged the 10 for an 8 which fits better and ... Read Moreeliminated the fullness. Could use a bit more space in the waist but anticipate that the hemp/cotton will stretch a bit in humid weather so should fit just right. We shall see.
High rise way too high
The high rise was way too high! It pinched my belly every time I bent. I really wanted to love it b/c the material is sustainable and so soft, but I just couldn't. Please make it midrise. The world needs more hemp and sustainable clothing in workwear.
Hi Melodie, thanks for taking the time to write this review. We are sorry to hear that the rise is uncomfortable for you. We've passed your feedback along to our Design Team who are constantly working to improve the style and fit of our products. Of course, if you are not sold on these, you can absolutely [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) them back to us under our warranty.
Super comfortable and thoughtful
These are very comfortable. Ive had to return them because the size I ordered was too big. Im not a big fan of the curved pockets and when I walk the front inseam rides up, but this could be fixed with a smaller size? Because of how good these feel Im now looking into buying some other hemp products from Patagonia.
I tried to make these work
And for the right body type they'd be very flattering. I went with a size 12 because I wear a W31 in jeans (which is actually not a big size). Using Patagonia's size chart a W31 translates to an L (size 12). I'm a fit althletic type and usually wear men's slim jeans because they fit me well. Note that I do not have an hourglass ... Read Morefigure ! I tried to like these shorts (which I optimistically purchased in both colors) but they looked like grandpa's shorts on me. The waist size fit perfectly but I lack the booty and voluptuous body to fill these shorts in. I wore the mustard color around for a day then had someone take a pic of me to post on Instagram. When I saw the pic I realized that this style simply doesn't work for me. I'm 5'1, 140 lbs and have a stocky but lean boyish body. But pay close attention to the model for these shorts ! She's got a small waist and a big shapely butt. That's exactly the kind of body you need to make these shorts work. Also I don't think these are particularly flattering on short people. So I ended up returning both pairs this morning. This is the first time that Patagonia didn't work out for me !
Thanks so much for your detailed review! We're sorry they didn't work out, but all information you can provide regarding fit, sizing, fabric and your own measurements is incredibly helpful for our designers as well as other customers.

Poor design - right on top, baggy on bottom
I had really high hopes for these and plans to use them in the pottery studio. Theyre incredibly high waisted (to my belly button) with little give and make it incredibly uncomfortable (kind of unbearable) to sit down in. The legs were disproportionately baggy around my thighs. I really hope Patagonia can get their sizing/designs figured out for wo... Read Moremens wear. The material is good and sustainable and I support that.
Thank you for your feedback on this and we are sorry to hear that these missed the mark in some ways. If you decide you don't have use for them, please feel free to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) those back.
I bought my first version of these shorts in 1997 and Im still wearing them so decided I needed a new pair. The new shorts are longer than my old ones and the fabric a little heavier weight. I love them and will probably wear them this Fall and Winter with a sweater (Texas heat). Same great fit and very durable, I expect they will outlive me!
Wear them all the time
These shorts are terrific. I usually wear a 6 but went up a size for a loose-fitting fit which is very comfortable in my hot climate. The shorts are a heavy weight but they're breathable and feel light when wearing them. I have both colors and may order duplicates as they are my favorite shorts in many years.
Sizing is off
I bought these shorts to do a long bike tour in. Unfortunately, the sizing is off by a lot. I got a size 2, which I usually wear, but everything was huge. The fabric felt really soft but also very durable and the pockets are as deep and wonderful as they look online. I would recommend them if you can find your size.
We're sorry to hear this item didn't work out for you! Please note that your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you would like to initiate a return or exchange, you may do so [HERE](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=returns).
I ordered the shorts from the web site. I am in Honolulu. I went topics up the shorts at the Patagonia store. I wear a size six in the Patagonia traveler shorts. ( Love them). The ' All Season" hemp shorts were extremely large in the size 6 and the material was dense and heavy. Not a fit for a warm climate. I returned them.
We're sorry these didn't fit your needs! [Let us know](https://www.patagonia.com/customer-service.html) if you have any questions regarding your return.
Nice shorts, bit the sizing....
I have the Iron Forge Hemp work pants and thought these would be sized the same. They're not. These run way smaller. So that was a pain having to exchange size 10 for a 12. Regardless they are nice shorts. I'm 5'3" and they're a bit too long, but I roll them up and they're fine. And, like all Patagonia shorts/pants the... Read Morey're tight in the waist. I do really like the fabric and the utility. They're great summer work shorts -- mowing the lawn, spreading mulch, working on my car. Patagonia quality is always great.
Ws All Seasons Hemp Canvas Shorts
LOVE these shorts!! They are great for working in the garden and the dirt doesn't really show if I suddenly need to run an errand in the middle of it. The pockets are perfect for anything and everything, you don't need an addition belt to hold hand tools or whatever. Super handy, super cute and seriously durable.
I love these shorts. They are so well made and comfortable. They don't necessarily run small, but I always have to wear one size up with Patagonia clothes, so I just ordered a size up and they fit well. I would say they are not particularly flattering, but I like them so much, I don't care.
New gardening shorts
I love the fabric and the differently cut pockets in the back will work really well for holding tools, etc. The fit is weird, though. Extremely high waisted, but the waist cinches in a different place than my natural waist. I’m hoping they’ll stretch a bit, but right now they cut off my circulation a bit when I’m bending over.
Thanks for your feedback! Please don't hesitate to send these back if they didn't work out after all.
Great, sturdy fabric that's already soft, a good length, nice utilitarian pockets. My only problem is with the sizing. I initially ordered a 10-- I checked the size chart and honestly measured my waist-- and the shorts were way, way too big. I just received the size 6, and these fit just fine.

Whoa these are great! I've always worn Columbia's PFG canvas shorts. They have discontinued them to my dismay. So I found these fabulous fitting hemp shorts. They are perfect......the size chart (I came up as being a size 12) worked. Thanks Patagonia. I love the fact that you are Fair Trade certified too.
