I just received my shorts. I ordered a pair a couple years ago, they fit well and wore well, so I wanted a second in a different color. The cloth of the new shorts is significantly thinner and flimsier than that used in my older pair, and there's a Patagonia logo label on the front hem (I should have noticed this when I ordered, but didn'... Read Moret). These shorts are too expensive to justify poor quality materials and enforced brand advertising. I'm returning them to my local store for a refund.
Thank you for the feedback Tim. We've made some recent changes which has resulted in a lighter fabric. This allows for more breathability. We've also added the p-6 logo to the pocket as you've stated. We're always happy to discuss updates and changes to gear with you prior to purchase, or to make suggestions on other gear that may suit you better.
Not what I thought
These were not as I excepted, I have bought the hemp style shorts the shorts I received previous to these were much heavier fabric (which I thought these would have also). The shorts are fine but not what i wanted them to be.
Hello James, we appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry the shorts did not meet your expectations. You are certainly welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) them at your convenience.
Great fit fades and wears easily
The fit has been great and sits easily on hips with or without belt. Like the soft feel and length is right where expected.

Hello Brandon, thank you for taking the time to leave a review for the shorts. We are sorry to learn about the fading and wear on the fabric. We do offer an Ironclad Guarantee on our product so you are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) the shorts as we want our customers to be 100% satisfied with their purchase.
Not as good as old style
I'll echo other sentiments that the old 100% organic cotton model was a better overall short than the hemp blend. These are very light and comfortable, but the fit is different and the material doesn't feel as solid as the previous models. I have almost exclusively worn these shorts for the last 4 or so years, but I will have to start rep... Read Morelacing them with a different style going forward.

Thin shorts run a little small
They looked great and I was happy with them until first wash. They didn't shrink as I was careful to dry on low but they do appear very worn already. They also wrinkle very easily. I will wear them for yard work and fishing but not for social outings based on their appearance after a couple washes. I suspect this is indicative of hemp.

I am 5 foot 9 inches, 165 lbs. and athletic. Shorts are probably a little snugger than I expected in the seat, but relax with wear.

I bought two pairs and am considering r... Read Moreeturning them.
Thank you for the review on our Men's Lightweight All-Wear Hemp Shorts - 8". Natural Fibers do have a tendency to wrinkle unfortunately.

Great shorts but VERY wrinkle-prone
I LOVE the fit and feel of these shorts. However, the material is extremely prone to wrinkles, particularly if you're going to be sitting for long periods. Even if you're not sitting, they come out of the dryer quite wrinkled. Much more so than my other shorts, including linen shorts. I'd still recommend them, but buyers should be aw... Read Moreare.
Great Fit, My Favorite Shorts
I was a little nervous about the fit when I ordered 34, thinking they would be a little too big but they fit great. I love the fabric and feel of the shorts, they've quickly become my favorite. So far I haven't been disappointed with any Patagonia product I've ordered.
Not quite right for me
I love the Patagonia brand but the feel of the fabric and the corresponding fit didn't work for me. Love the my Baggy Hemp Natural shorts by Patagonia, but these weren't quite what I was expecting.
Hey there, thank you for the review on the Lightweight All-Wear Hemp Shorts. We're sorry to hear these didn't work out for you! If you haven't already, feel free to begin the return process [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Comfy (but inconsistent sizing)
Comfy, sleek, soft. As others have noted these shorts run small. I'm normally a 32, these I needed the 33. Only thing is I bought 2 pairs of 32s, returned them, and bought 2 pairs same 8" inseam in 33s and the blue ones are tight, the gray ones fit perfect. Will return the blue ones in hopes it was a manufacturing error and try a new 33. ... Read MoreHope they work out.
Could pass for dress but
I have several pairs of shorts left to my disposal. I have GAP cotton/linen blend, and two of your hemp blend shorts. Your shorts are extremely comfortable and light weight. Living in Michigan, were getting more hot and humid days strung together. Your shorts are a perfect weight for the weather. As I said in my title, they look so good, I could we... Read Morear them to a summer party that may be on the more formal side. Unfortunately, the Patagonia label sewn into the front leg precludes that. Im betting Id get enough compliments on my shorts, I would get asked where I bought them, take care of your marketing needs.
Disappointed... material covering the zipper fails at its assigned task...does not cover the zipper. I've also purchased 'Standup' shorts this season and experienced no issues... just 'cheap' I suppose.
We're so sorry to hear these didn't live up to expectations. You're absolutely welcome to send them back for a return and if you're interested in checking out a similar pair, we'd recommend the [Men's Lightweight All-Wear Hemp Volley Shorts - 7"](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-lightweight-all-wear-hemp-volley-shorts-7-inch/57870.html?dwvar_57870_color=MJVK&cgid=root).
Not Very Durable
I bought these shorts about two months ago and wore them primarily to work every day. Last week I noticed that the concrete countertops had worn a hole in the shorts. While I wasnt completely surprised as the countertops at work have worn holes in clothing before I had hoped that Patagonias material would have been tough enough for the job. Other t...

100% organic cotton is better
I've worn this model shorts for years. They used to be 100% organic cotton; now they are a blend of cotton and hemp. 100% cotton is much better: heavier, more durable, and more comfortable. I would like Patagonia to bring back 100% organic cotton.
Thanks for your feedback on the fabric change. You might like the [Men's Stand Up® Shorts - 7"](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-stand-up-shorts-7-inch/57228.html) for an all organic cotton casual short.
Perfect fit, super comfortable
I wear shorts year round. I often look for the perfect shorts. These are them. Super comfortable, great fit. They work while standing knee deep in a creek, fishing, or standing in a bar with friends. (Except for Covid. Wear a mask). I have these in a few colors, and will probably get more. Please make these forever.
Please lose the brand logo
I've had many iterations of these pants through the years. They typically last 2-3 years of casual summer use before the hems start to fray. I do not like labels on clothes. It's acceptable when they are on the back but on the front is too conspicuous for my taste. I had not ordered them for this fact, but finally ordered 2 pair which arr... Read Moreived today. Shorts are great but labels on front leg is obnoxious. So I removed the label and I'm happy with a nice pair of shorts. 4 stars for limited durability and the label.
Thanks for the review David. If you're finding that your gear isn't holding up the way you'd expect you're always welcome to send it back for a warranty evaluation. We'll also pass along the feedback regarding the logos to our design team.
Super Breezy and Comfortable
I'm 6'0" and 245lbs, these shorts are very fresh and comfortable for Puerto Rico weather (average 90°F) and they are very easy wearing and provide enough mobility to not have to worry about any tears or rips. Also, if you get a stain it's very easy to wash since the knit is open and lightweight without sacrificing strength.
Shorts. Wrong ones :(
I intended to buy swim shorts that were made of cotton and hemp I mistakenly ended up with the shorts that were sent to me which are comfortable however they require a belt
Hey James! Thanks for your review on the All-Wear Hemp Shorts. These are not advertised as boardshorts. Perhaps you were looking for the [Organic Cotton Canvas Boardshorts](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-organic-cotton-canvas-boardshorts-18-inch/86710.html?dwvar_86710_color=PKNA) instead? We hope this helps!
Don't sweat the wrinkles or the fit
Reading other reviews, I was concerned about wrinkling, and whether the fit is consistent with the old cotton All Wears. While these do wrinkle a bit when you're sitting, it's nothing like linen or dress shirt cotton- they look fine. Likewise on the fit, these feel very, very close to the 2019 All Wears they replaced... exactly the same l... Read Moreength/width when overlaid.
Good short, runs small and long.
It took me several tries to get the right size for these. I finally landed on 35 waist - 8 length. I normally wear a 33/34. I have 10 shorts from other brands that arent too long but these 10 were too long and too baggy. Great lightweight short. While I love Patagonia and support their mission, I kind of wish the branding was on the inside too... Read More. If I put on a Patagonia jacket at the same time as the shorts it makes me feel like an unwitting walking catalogue pic.
I can't even picture the body type these are meant for but it's not mine. I want them to fit because I want some shorts that are a bit heavier than the 'baggies' ones but still not super heavy. These would be a good medium. I tried a few sizes and lengths and they all have the same terrible fit. My waist measures 32 with a tape ... Read Moremeasure but usually 29-31 is what fits. 30 of these has far too big a waist. The fit top to bottom of the short is such that the belly part digs in but the rear falls down. The butt also just has no shape so you feel weird pressure points constantly and are always uncomfortable. It's like theyre for someone with literally zero glute muscles. Because of all the above they also then are always tight against the front of your knees but have way too much space behind your knees. Complete nonsense. They also have the horrific black patagonia logo on the knee that totally stands out against the color of the shorts and is just tacky and ugly. Very disappointed and really curious if theyre even having anyone actually wear their clothes for more than the time it takes to do a photo shoot for the website.
Great lightweight shorts
I ordered these shorts in Mojave Khaki for my husband, who is 5'7" and 34" waist. He loves them -- very lightweight (for hot VA summers) and comfortable with a TTS waist feel. As some other reviewers have noted, because these are hemp shorts, the legs tend to wrinkle if you've been sitting for a while and the wrinkles stay unles... Read Mores you walk around for a while. My husband doesn't mind/notice this -- I do, but I don't think it looks sloppy so it's not a big deal (I think wrinkles would be less noticeable in one of the darker colors). He wanted the 10" inseam originally but I felt like those would be too long so I ordered the 8" which are perfect.
Nice shorts, size is crazy-making
They are nice shorts, but my Size 36 stretch out to a Size 38 within day, and shrinking them in the washer did not hold. Bought a pair at Size 35, and they came out of the envelope Size 37---went back.
Hello Pete, we're really sorry the sizing didn't work out. Your feedback has been passed along to the Design Team. Please don't hesitate to reach out to our [Customer Service](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) team if you have any questions regarding your return.
I love these!
I was initially disappointed that the all-cotton All-Wear Shorts were replaced with a new cotton/hemp version. But having these new All-Wear shorts have changed my mind in every possible way! The fit and finish are perfect and the weight is perfect for hot summer days. I'm so happy and in love with these shorts!
These are really nice casual shorts. Light weight and very comfy. The only thing that I found to be a bit off the mark is the sizing, at least compared to some of the other shorts. I have several pair of the stand up shorts and compared to them, the LW Hemp shorts run about a size large.
I loved the fit, color and comfort of these shorts. I didn't love how wrinkly they get with big creases in the groin area giving them a sloppy look. That's a dealbreaker for me and I'm sending these back.
