Like So Much it's Pair #2

These are my favorite trail running shorts - love them for running and hiking both. The internal liner is longer than what I'm used to with traditional running shorts and I really appreciate it. And the pockets are super-handy and perfect size to bring along a phone. They might be a LITTLE heavy for hot summer road running, but otherwise they ... Read Moreare my go-to.

Favorite trail running shorts

Super comfy. Keep everything in place. No chaffing (up to 50k, beyond that need some lube). Just need to watch out with the pocket zippers. The new fabric flap gets in the way unless you make sure you pull the zipper back.

My gym shorts

Great for working out and shorter runs. Fit great, stretch material is great for movement and the pockets have zippers.

Softness with support

These feel good.

great shorts!

I love these shorts! They're so light and comfy. The liner comes in handy on both hot and cold days. These are my go to running shorts.

Luxury meets functionality

Lightweight and soft, these shorts are my new favorites.

bring back the Nine Trails

on paper these shorts should be better than the shorts they were obviously modeled after. i feel like the nine trails were lighter, and they felt like the next closest thing to being naked. the multi trails are still light but they are noticeable enough to not give that naked feeling. i dont know if its just me but either the multi trails are longe... Read Morer than 8 inches or the nine trails were shorter than 8 inches. and that storm flap thing outside of the zippered pockets up front, those have got to go. the zipper is constantly getting stuck on it. i just dont understand why such a beloved and popular piece like the nine trails were replaced by something that is trying to look like the nine trails but falls short.

They fit great. They feel snug and comfortable.

Nice shorts for hiking and running

I have the Terrebone shorts as well. It would be nice to have a shorter length Terrebone short as well, like 8in

October 25, 2023

Do it all shorts

Love these shorts, I own multiple pairs that I use for working out every day as well as hiking. I know people don't like lining, but I personally love it and the zippered pockets to keep stuff secure when I'm zipping through streets or trails.

Great hiking shorts

I recently finished a challenging section of the Long Trail a 5 day hike in hot and humid weather. I wore the same pair of Patagonia trail shorts for 4 of those days and only changed into the second pair I packed for my last day coming into town to meet my wife and go out to lunch.

I wasnt sure if I would like the inner mesh but now Im sold and am going to order another pair to add to my hiking gear.

Inaccurate weight

I returned these, no red flags regarding their size or quality though. I just wanted to write a quick review to let people know that the listed weight is incorrect. I had three pairs of mediums that all weighed >140g. Patagonia customer service indicated that they had ~150g on file for a size large and that they submitted a ticket to correct the...

A little baggy

I bought these shorts because I wanted a 2nd pair of Nine Trails shorts. I was sad to see that they were no longer available. These seem to be, and fit basically the same. Very comfortable. They are a 1/2 inch or so longer in direct comparison. My wife feels that they look baggier on me, and I would have to agree. (Both shorts are the same size) I ... Read Morealso appreciate the zipper closure on the back pocket on the Nine Trails, rather than the snap closure on these new shorts. Also, the Nine Trails front pockets have no flap next to the zipper. These new shorts have that flap, and that wants to get caught in the zipper frequently. Jamie A T thru hiker

Amazing summer shorts

The way they fit and feel are just top knoch. 👌🏼 I give them 10 out of 10 for running 🏃‍♂️ shorts.

These are great running shorts, I really like how light they feel. I could see replacing all my running shorts with these.

Good follow up to 9 trails

I've been waiting for a 9 trails replacement forever because they stopped making the colorful patterns. Was fortunate to get the green pattern ones on sale. I like these shorts and am grateful to get some new zippered pockets since my 9 trails zippers busted years ago and Patagonia warranty won't fix them for me. Guessing the zippers will...

I tried the lining but ended up cutting it out since I prefer wearing boxers. Fit is nice overall.

Awesome fabric and weight

I bought two pair of these to replace an old pair of Nine Trail shorts that blew out at the seams and to have a second pair. I use them mostly for casual wear while camping and they are perfect. They are super comfortable and the fabric has an amazing feel. I bought them in large for extra room as my normal medium are a little too snug for lounging... Read More around. The internal liner ads to the comfort because there is no need for boxers underneath and give lots of room to move. They are great for hiking as well.

Great Shorts

Really like the length on these shorts and the color.

Great all day shorts

Comfortable, a size bigger than I thought compared to the baggies, the liner is loose. So far it’s my most comfortable shorts. I liked them so much I bought them in another color.

These Shorts Suck

I bought a pair at a Patagonia store while on vacation - I was looking for the nine trails, but they were no longer being sold. I would return them, but unfortunately the store is in Sweden and I am now in the US. Every time I wear them I know I will have to deal with a snagged pocket zipper.

I was fortunate later to buy a few 9 trails that were listed on this website before they sold out. Note that a popular outdoor review site does not list this short, and dropped 9 trails (as the winner) since it is no longer available. On the plus side they look nice, but not when I'm hunched over trying to unsnag a pocket zipper.

From sofa cushions to ottomans, these shorts are up for the task. They've ventured through the kitchen and into the backyard, conquering the entire house while keeping the tackle in place.

Perfect Trail Running Shorts

I just love the: high quality materials/construction; deep zippered pockets to keep snacks/doggie bags/stuff securely in my pockets when running; shorts lining to protect against chafing; comfortable waistband with tie string on the OUTSIDE for easier tying/un-tying; great color selections. This is my third pair, and like every Patagonia item I own... Read More, its highly functional and good looking athletic clothing.

Good shorts

Good shorts. They have pockets. They fit well. I run comfortably in them. I read some reviews before ordering and it sounds like there was another version which people preferred, but not having experienced this other iteration has me feeling perfectly satisfied with my purchase. Don't listen to the shorts-dorks. Follow your dreams

August 28, 2023


My husband finds these shorts very comfortable for dog walks, trail walks and around the house.

August 28, 2023

Great all-around exercise shorts

I wear these shorts for working out, hiking, pickleball, and as casual wear. The pockets are great and make these more useful than just running shorts. Nice soft feel and comfortable liner. I own several pairs of these now!

August 28, 2023

Quality product, unlike Nike

Patagonia has always made a quality product. I bought the purple color. Fabric is thin, soft, lightweight and stretchy. Liner is the same way. Not really good for running, I would recommend the 5" inseam rather than the 7". I wear them casually and occasionally for work.

August 27, 2023


Love these shorts!

Theyre not nine trails but theyre great in their own way

Lots of other reviewers miss the nine trails shorts and as someone who has multiple pairs, i do too! But that doesnt mean these multi trail shorts arent great too. They feel softer and more comfortable to wear almost like pajamas though also dont feel as durable for intense hikes and getting scraped by branches and such. I love wearing them around ...

Not into the liner at all

I hate a briefs-type liner because it digs in, but since these have a boxer-brief liner I decided to give them a shot. I really dislike it. I want more secure underwear. I want to minimize friction, you know? The liner in these are really loose in the wrong places. And since a liner is built in, if the shorts are sliding down at all then so are t... Read Morehe underwear. Since these have an elastic waist, it's hard to get them actually sag-proof like I could with something with belt loops, especially with things in the pockets. Even the tie-able cord inside is practically as stretchy as the waist itself so you can't get it secure, even if it's tight. And if you do make it tight, well there's no fly so you have to keep it loose enough to pull the front down to pee, or untie/tie it every time. How can you wear this for more than 1 day? If I'm hiking or something where I'm trying to pack light, I want to wear the same shorts for a few days and swap in fresh underwear daily. With a liner, that's too nasty, I'd need fresh shorts every day. I don't understand why anyone would ever choose shorts with a liner, but at least these dont dig in like briefs. I'll stick to independent underwear.

Poor replacement for 9 Trails short

I purchased two pair of these shorts to start replacing my well-worn 9 Trails Shorts. This product falls short in two ways. First, the 9 Trails' rear pocket zipper has been replaced with a snap.

New material is awesome but the fit is really strange. If old nine trails shape and construction could be made with this material it'd be a primo short but otherwise I'd skip them unless you're 6ft plus.

While not the Nine Trails, still very good

So I feel compelled to defend these shorts based on some of the other reviews. I have a handful of the previous iteration (Nine Trails), which I love, and I was hesitant to give the new version a try based on some of the other reviews. I took them for a spin yesterday on the trails, and I was very happy with them. I don't find that the sligh... Read Moretly more billowy leg opening to be an issue at all - it offers a little more range of motion than its predecessor. I prefer the fabric of the these over the Nine Trails - little lighter, more stretch, and per the tag, better odor control. And while I do prefer a zipper on the back pocket, it's not really an issue for me as that pocket is primarily for small trash I find while in the woods - I don't think anything will fly out of them. I do not use the pockets when running/hiking because I always have a pack on which carries everything - I do not like anything bouncing around in my pockets. The shape of the pockets is a little wonky (not sure if it's just my pair or they're all cut the exact same). When I was wearing these to walk the dog, my phone was in my pocket, and it had the tendency to slip sideways inside the pocket, which was a little awkward feeling and I had to keep adjusting it. The pocket of the Nine Trails was more narrow (up and down), and my phone always stayed vertical. I agree with another reviewer that the zipper has a tendency to catch on the fabric that surrounds the pockets/hangs over the zipper (for protection of the zipper?). I will say, however, that the overall fit is a little more loose, and the drawstring is a little stretchier which was needed to tighten it all up. All my Nine Trails are Larges, but I might be better suited in a Medium in these. Overall, an incredibly comfortable short, which I am happy to add to my collection of other Patagonia shorts and a go-to choice when hiking, running in the woods, walking my dog, and lounging.

Great shorts needing one imporvement

I'm a huge Patagonia fan. Adore these shorts for working out in, cycling and yoga. I have three pairs. Very light breathable material. Liner is not too tight. Nice zippered pockets.

Comfortable shorts

I am a long time daily wearer of the 9 trails shorts. Since they are being discontinued I have been looking for a replacement, these are almost a great pair to replace the old.

Best running shorts

By far the most comfortable shorts I have ever worn

July 12, 2023

Flexible and comfortable running shorts

Very comfy running shorts with a slightly longer inseam which fits covers also bulkier thighs well and prevents chafing. The purple is a fantastic color!

July 9, 2023

Not Quite Right

These were purchased as run shorts and find that I prefer Baggies to these. These are light, soft and comfortable but not quite the right material for me to run in. And not the right storage situation to make up for it. I now run almost exclusively in Baggies and they make me wish Patagonia made them in a more typical run short style.

July 6, 2023

Great for running, with room for improvement

Lightweight comfy running and trail shorts. Phone doesnt bounce in the pocket. My only complaints are nitpicks. Zippers get caught on the fabric flaps of the shorts. Not a dealbreaker but annoying on longer runs. Not really sure why the Capilene lightweight fabric is the liner. Its comfortable but performs much worse than the Sender fabric. Seems...

Some of the Best Shorts I've Owned

Those that are unhappy with these shorts, because they're comparing them to a similar, discontinued product aren't giving this product a proper, unbiased review and allowing them to shine as a standalone product. These are some the best shorts I've ever owned. At 5'8" with a 32" inseam, these shorts sit a few inches ... Read Moreabove the knee which is exactly where I want them and where a short functions best for general recreation activities from hiking to climbing. They're long enough to provide suitable coverage from the elements while short enough and mobile/stretchy enough via the fabric to move with your body. The liner doesn't ride up my larger thighs and I've experienced zero chaffing or discomfort, even while working in the very hot Arizona sun for hours on end. The waist is true to size and sits well without being overly constrictive or feeling too loose. The fabric is soft and manages sweat and dirt well. The side pockets are deep enough to carry a wallet or large phone with issue and they don't flare out like the pockets in some running shorts, keeping the overall profile of the shorts very composed. The rear pocket snap button works well enough and I don't feel concerned for my wallet. After purchasing a few pairs, all I want to wear are these shorts, especially when comparing them to similar products from other brands, or shorts that are outdoor or activity focused. I'll be placing an order for more and hoping Patagonia keeps these in their line up for several years.

June 21, 2023

Overall my ideal type of short!

I love these shorts. Super comfortable and fit perfectly to size in my opinion. The waist band isn't too tight but also feels snug. The liner isn't cutting off my circulation, which some other short liners do! I'd recommend these to anyone who just wants a comfortable everyday short perfect for any occasion. I'll definitely look... Read Moreing to get another pair of these when they comeback in stock. Highly recommend!

Ruined short designed based on Nine Trails Shorts

I've been a huge fan of the Nine Trails shorts and no shorts have ever come close to these. They were perfect in every way the leg opening had a nice taper and zippers on every pocket was amazing. I never had bounce, the material was perfect. I had nothing negative to say about these. I bought these because I don't see the nine trails r... Read Moreestock and I really really hope you aren't going to discontinue the nine trails. Anyways, lets start with the leg opening, I don't know what makes you go towards this sort of cut but it is terrible. It is boxy, way too loose, the leg opening is like dress also because you made it more loose there is much more bounce of the items in the pocket causing a more frustrating experience while running. That in it of itself kinda ruins the whole thing. You say its to create better range of motion regardless of body type and I don't buy that what so ever. I have large thighs way bigger than the average, and I never felt any sort of restriction. So I don't really understand this decision whatsoever it is oblivious. If anything you should've kept the same cut since you are using a more stretchable material, that should result in better range of motion! No need to ruin the cut of your products. Next the length, I own 4 nine trails and compared them all side by side and the length is a bit longer again again referring back to the horrible cut. Its unflattering and do not feel confident in these shorts. If the goal was to make them "lighter" these shorts should not been the ones. If you run trails you wont even noticed the difference what so ever, so why try to achieve a lighter profile. Keep that to the shorter inseam running shorts. A couple grams is not going to weigh anyone down. Now onto the snap button, just a horrible decision to switch from the zipper. I always felt confident with the nine trails zippers and now you have to worry about damaging the button if you decide to rest on a rock while on the trail. Now that's another frustration to consider, when it rubs and scrapes on everything. This button is going to wear out at this rate. Also a button has a higher failure rate than the zipper. I always carry my wallet in the back pocket I feel so secure knowing its zipped up. A button does not give you the same confidence of your pockets security. Overall if these are going to replace the nine trails then we just lost a great product. In conclusion, these shorts are a collection of horrible design decisions and genuinely believe these did not need to go intro production to replace an already perfect product.

Weird fit

Often the only difference these days between expensive, athletic clothing and cheap. Athletic clothing is the cut of the material and how it shapes your body. Well, the cut on these is terrible.

I have these shorts for about 2 weeks and haves used them from running, hiking and working out in the gym. The material is stretchy and light - which is comfortable and great in warmer temps.

The nine trails shorts have become one of my favorite products and these new ones are almost better in every way but the one downside for me is the length. Even though the inseam is the same at 8", it's definitely a little longer than the old nine trails shorts. Not sure if it's just the tolerance or something else. Would honestly lo... Read Moreve if these came in a 7" inseam, but even the 8" inseam on the nine trails was better. These are just a tiny bit too long for me.

I can help you make a better trail running short.

Hello. As I've been a runner for 45 years and worn lots and lots of shorts I've has the opportunity to experience what is and what isn't good. My needs have changed as have shorts. While it's very possible that I am not the mainstream and what I am looking for isn't as sellable than what Patagonia and every other short man... Read Moreufacturer design. I will say though, I think Patagonia is closer to my ideal than anyone else. I should add I am an old-school minimalist. I don't carry a belt or water. I want my shorts to do everything. And I like to wear shorts and a t-shirt that feels like cotton, even if it is technical. Here's my preference: Length - Your two mainstays are 8" and 5". I'd actually prefer a 6" or 7". 8" is more like a basketball short. Too much material. I think you used to. make a 7" in your first version. Liner - I can't stand the compression shorts, but I do appreciate a liner. What's wrong with the old underwear liner? The compression shorts seem to sag and I keep pulling them up. They feel weird on my legs. The lighter mesh ones you are now using are better than the Pockets - I do like the zip pockets you now put on the front and back. I need a pocket that'll fit my phone and is sturdy enough. What I'd like to see is a back pocket that has thicker material around it so that the phone does not flap and is big enough for a Galaxy or 14 Max... with a zipper to protect it. On the 5" model I have tried to get the phone in their and it's a struggle. On the 8" model if I put the phone in the front it flops around. The phone needs to go in the back, but you need more material to keep it from flopping. I did see another company that puts a pocket on the liner in the leg, but that's weird too. I don't want to feel it. The back is best. The pocket needs to be able to hold a phone. It needs to have a zipper to keep the contents contained. And it needs to be substantial to keep it stable. Material - lighter weight that dries quickly. The version I bought yesterday is the best, but I've seen you make them in several thicknesses. It just needs to be a little more substantial in the phone pocket. I hope this helps. I am happy to talk with a designer in more detail. I have thought a lot about this for a long time. I appreciate your taking this all into consideration to make a better trail running short. Thanks! Grant

Fantastic healthy option to Nine Trails shorts

So these shorts are almost identical to the Nine Trails ones, with the exceptions that they are lighter, as I believe another reviewer mentioned; as well as PFC-free which is huge. My mother had cancer and chemo messed her brain up, and PFCs/PFAS have a risk factor for certain liver and kidney cancers. My jobs at the mo are personal training and so... Read Moreccer coaching, so I would wear the Nine Trails shorts (that contain PFC/PFAS, and can transmit via skin contact and dust inhalation) for entire days, and now finally I can wear shorts without potentially increasing the risk of a health situation that affects millions of Americans. I know it not may seem like much to some, but that peace of mind is great, particularly when your profession is so reliant on clothing of this ilk, and I cant wait for Patagonia to be entirely PFA/PFC free.

Thanks for your review, Ryan! We're so glad to hear you're loving these shorts, and appreciate the work we're putting forth to eliminate PFCs entirely from our line. We'd like to mention one thing, the PFCs that do exist on our clothing are strongly bonded to the fabric and pose an extremely low risk to the end user. PFCs are dangerous to humans primarily through ingestion of tainted water or food, just something to keep in mind! We look forward to also ridding our line completely of these chemicals. In the meantime, you can search PFC free items on our website by entering "PFC free" in the search bar.

Please add some storage to these shorts!

My wishlist for a pair of running shorts: boxer brief liners, 7-8 inch length, and storage for my cell phone, a key or two, and a credit card. When I do longer runs, I generally have a hydration pack or something that can carry the items I want to bring with me, but often I am doing shorter runs and these shorts won't allow me bring those item... Read Mores. Please give us a version of these shorts with no bounce/secure storage for the items I mentioned. I'd prefer the phone pocket be built into the liner, but a zip pocket in the back would work as well.

Hi Orion, thank you for sharing this feedback; we're passing it along to our design team. It sounds like these shorts aren't going to work for you. We're sorry to hear that! Please feel free to [return]( them if you wish.

the Ultralighters DREAM shorts

these have a very similar resemblance to the Nine Trails shorts except one major difference, these are nearly one third of the weight. at 81 grams or 2.85 ounces, these multi trail shorts are lighter than the Nine Trails, both strider and strider pros, lighter than the trailfarer and baggies lights, these are even lighter than their underwear, and ... Read Moreit has built-in underwear. i purchased 4 pairs already, and Im ready to ditch my nine trails and strider pros. this in my opinion is the most innovative product Patagonia has released this year. this is as close to being naked without being naked as it gets.

Comfortable & Stylish

These fit great and I love the built in underlayer. They're very light, perfect length/size, and look great.
