These are the only shorts I wear
These are the most perfect shorts, and have been for decades. They are tough! And they have great pockets!!! Especially the back pockets, i never have to worry about stuff falling out of the back pockets when I a on my bike. Great when you have to carry phone, wallet, keys, other keys, cash, change, flashlight, bandana, couple of face masks, intere... Read Moresting rocks, kids toys etc. I wish they came in more colors, they used to have a beautiful blue. The only negative is my front pockets wear out fast
High Quality Fabric
I wore these almost every day for work this summer as a residential carpenter. I really like the length (well above the knee) and the fabric is durable and comfortable and breaks in nicely. I would much prefer a utility pocket on the right thigh (like most other work pants and shorts have) instead of all the space in the back pockets though.
Well made but material/finish is delicate.
Have bought these same shirts before in size 30. Way too small! Ordered this pair 31. Way to big! Dont know if different colors run bigger or smaller but cant afford to attempt a fit again. Though the construction of the shorts are first rate, the material is super delicate. Got a small stain on the leg and tried to remove the stain with some mild ... Read Moresoap and water. Result was the stain remained and the finish was removed. So you have a dark stain highlighted by a light scuff mark. Now if this was just one item noticeably blemish, this wouldnt be a big deal. But I have experienced this with another pair of pants by Patagonia. Same problem, same result. I actually live in my clothing day to day and cant afford to have such finicky items in my small wardrobe. Oh well.
Hi Glenn, thanks for taking the time to write a product review. We're sorry to hear you struggled to find the right size. We're always happy to provide exact garment measurements so that you get it right the first time rather than have to exchange them. You can also check out our [stain removal guide](https://www.patagonia.com/product-care.html) for instructions on how to remove different stains. We stand by our products and are always happy to accept returns for items that don't perform well. We have emailed to assist with this.
Ive had multiple pairs of these shorts over the years. I still have and wear all of them. They just keep giving! Ive purchased them at different times and always bought the same size and had the same fit. The last two pair I received fit nothing like the others . Im either shrinking or they are running 2 sizes larger.
Love these shorts
I've kept a pair or two of Patagonia Stand Up Shorts in my wardrobe for many years.

I've been wearing Stand Up shorts ever since I was into rock climbing. They are tough and I love the wide leg openings.

We appreciate this feedback and we'll pass it along to our design crew. We can't promise that we'll offer the same style in the near future, but we definitely hear your call.
Shorter and need more colors
Love these. Used to love them more. There was previously a 6.5 in version. Just sayin, you can get 7 shorts anywhere and these wear better shorter (though the 5 might be too short). Plus, there were more colors. If you had more colors you would sell (me) more shorts (blue, navy, yellow, red).
Bring back 5" inseam, please
I've been wearing these shorts for years, to the point of wearing them out entirely. I'm supremely disappointed the 5" inseam has been discontinued. 7" isn't bad, but I have pretty large thighs (ex-rower) and always found the 5" inseams to be more comfortable than the 7".

Longer would be good too!
I've owned stand-up shorts in a variety of lengths over a number of years. I see that a lot of people are wishing they came _shorter_ (in a 5" length in addition to the current 7" length). I'm one of those who miss the 8" length, maybe because I'm 6'3" and a little leggy and the shorter ones risk looking like...

New Favorite Shorts
Materials have definitely improved in the 10+ years since I last owned a pair of Stand-Up shorts. Comfortable and durable.

I bought three pairs of the stand-ups with a 5-inch inseam before they were discontinued. They're looking pretty worn.

Almost great, but still my favorite shorts
I bought these shorts about a week ago and I absolutely love them. They are a bit restrictive when you extend your legs so I choose not to wear them while climbing... bummer.

In between sizes
Ordered 31 which normally fits me fine but found to be too small. Got the 32 which is a little big and overly baggie but better that too tight. I have tried multiple pants and shorts and seem to be in between in the patagonia size templates. Also wish shorts came in shorter inseams.

Great shorts, but size is wrong. Very large
This is my 4th pair of stand up shorts, but I was very disappointed with these because they were huge. I always wear a 38 and I was drowning in this pair. I tried washing in hot water, but alas, no shrinkage. They went to the Salvation Army donation pile.

Men's stand up shorts
Can't figure out why Patagonia doesn't make any shorts in a 29 in. waist . This is the size I prefer! !!!!!! A size 30 is too big. But I came up with a solution.

Perfect except for one tiny thing
I absolutely love these shorts. So nice to have shorts that don't cover my knees. I used to wear these years ago and loved them. Since then, a wallet pocket has been added. It's a great idea but why is it only on the right-hand side? Many of us carry our wallets on the other side. Why not do both? Seems like a small thing to ask.

Great durable, textured ,flexible material. Like the fitted waist (darted above the back pockets) makes the fit very comfortable.

This year's shorts seem a bit closer to the original design though the fabric is definitely thinner than it used to be (as was the case last year too). The bigger issue to me is quality control. This year I ordered a pair of 33's and they were way too tight in waist and seat. I ordered another pair, same size and they fit really well. Last year the same thing, though the pair I kept are a bit too big (also 33 but fit like 34.5). Prior to last year, all of my Stand Up Shorts over a 20 year period fit fairly uniformly.

Long time customer wants 5 length to return
Ive been wearing stand up shorts for more than 40 years due to the fit and great durability but am disappointed that the 5 length was discontinued. I still purchase them but now I have the added expense of having them tailored back to 5. Please honor your loyal customers like me and save us the added expense
These feel as good as the 20 year old pair I've got. They have a roomy fit in the legs which give just the right amount of ventilation. I was a little worried about the length (my older pairs are 9" and 11"), but I appreciate the cut and can respect the decision to settle on a single length.
Pategonia took down my previous review so I will post again. For those of you like me who are a little bit shorter and loved the 5 inch. Do not waste you're time with these, they are way to long. For those of you 6 foot plus, sure. For everyone else, unless you like your shorts to be at your knee caps, don't buy these.
Way to long
Bought a couple pairs or the 5 inch a few years back. Wear them so much that it is time to replace. Unfortunately I cannot. The 7 is way to long at 5'9". From what I can see, I am not the only one who shares this displeasure. Just hope Pategonia listens to its customers in the future.

No 5 inch- Im finished
Worn stand ups since 1995. Moving on to another short now. No 5, no dice. Wasted money on 7 and had them hemmed to 5, still not right. Its obvious Patagonia will not go back to 5, even though there are hundreds of below reviews wanting them back. Ridiculous.

These shorts were advertised as a "throw back" to the old days when "shorts were shorts" - meaning, they were up above the knees, not at the knee caps.

Too long -- bring back the 5" versions, please!
These are just too long. I have worn the 5" stand-ups for years and need to replace a couple of pair that have lived a good life. Thought I'd try the 7", but just like so many of the reviews, they are just too long and uncomfortable where they hit at the knee. Bring back the 5" versions, please!
Thanks for the feedback Ed! You're not alone and we've let our design team know that the 5 inch is a popular inseam.

I have probably eight pairs of these shorts. I think they're the best shorts made. I have some that I think are 3" inseams. But I only wear my 5" ones. Keep trying to bring myself to get some 7"ones. But I cant quite pull the trigger. Seems like you'd sell more if you offered both lengths.

Bring back the 5"!!!
I just bought two pairs for my husband. He's worn the 5" for 30 years and loved them. He recently purchased 3 pairs of lighter-weight shorts and told me he hates them, that he wished Patagonia still sold his beloved stand-ups in the (also) beloved 5". These will be a surprise but I'll have to shorten them for him.
I have used versions of these shorts for many years. I love them. They are my favorite shorts for golfing with the four large pockets. I do remove the Velcro closures in the back pockets: useless and annoying. My only disappointment with the current version are the longer legs. I hate this trend in mens shorts. I will probably have them shortened.
Better than ever....
Okay-- I bought my first pair of standup shorts in 1980. Folks writing reviews appear to want the short inseams to come back, but, frankly, they were always too short; especially, if you were wearing a climbing harness. I think the 7 inch inseams are perfect. As for sizing: I am a 36 inch waist. For many years, I had to order the 38 inch waist size... Read More in the 'Standup Shorts' because the 36 inch shorts were too tight. I just bought a new pair and ordered the 36... they fit perfectly (not too snug and not too loose). Actually, for shorts that get used in the mountains, waist sizes should run a bit on the large size, so that they sit more on the hips and do not get bunched up under pack waist belts or climbing harnesses. At any rate, this iteration of the Standup Shorts (Dec. 2020) are the best fitting yet. Of course, I wish the canvas was thicker and more tightly woven, but I am probably in a minority here. I wear the Standup's every day even in winter and cannot imagine life in the mountains without them. But, please, make them super thick for climbers.
Are your thighs feeling restricted by small leg openings? Well then these shorts are for you. Flared leg openings let you move with ease. The fabric is super tough. My favorite part is probably that the pockets made of very sturdy fabric that seems indestructible. The shorts get better and better over time as they break in.
Miss the 5 stand up
These are the best shorts made. I have been wearing these shorts year around for decades and have some are thirty years old before they added the wallet pocket in the right back pocket. I have several pairs in a each of a few sizes 32-36. The 5 version are dearly missed. They tend to ride lower on the hips and the 7 model is too long. Please bring ...

Durable and comfortable
Bought my first pair of stand up shorts in the mid-1980s. Got two more because I liked them so much. It took me 20-25 years to wear those out, and the replacements are similar quality. If anything, the cotton used the past several years is more comfortable. I like the double seat/rear pockets and the wider leg openings.
Best Damn Shorts
Had my last pair of Stand Ups for seven years, and they finally became unwearable. Just purchased myself a new pair of the 7" in Earthworm Brown. Love these shorts, but miss the 5" inseam. Just took them to the tailor to get them hemmed. Looking forward to having my favorite shorts back, and to the adventures ahead.
These are great shorts for the fall...but, the legs are way toooooo wide. I had to have them taken up about two inches in width. I could have gotten both legs through one side with the width they came. Also, the back pockets are way toooo deep. My wallet hangs half way down the back of my leg...or maybe I'm just toooo picky. I just like my clo... Read Morethes to fit!
I'm 78 years old, and I have been wearing the 5" inseam standup shorts since they were introduced. It was so long ago I can't remember when that was. Anyway, I wear these shorts 12 months out of the year. Now, I found out that you have discontinued them. I understand change for the sake of improvement, but I cannot understand change ... Read Morefor just the sake of change. I've tried the 7" inseam; they are too heavy. I wash my shorts in hot water to shrink them, and dry them in hot heat. After a few washings and dryings, they are just right, like an old friend! Your products are very good, but go back to some tradition. I am hardly the only one that feels this way. My review is just one of many that is requesting the reintroduction of the 5" inseam. Please take note!
Newly acquired, this style, #57228 bot w/35" waist and 7" inseam is easily 1" larger waist, and 2" longer inseam than earlier #57227 I had hoped to replace. Maybe it was was mis-labeled, but I'm disappointed that Patagonia let that happen. The construction & fabric are the same functional, comfortable sturdy cotton, and...
