It looks great when its been ironed, but as soon as you sit down it looks like you slept in them for a week. Don't like the material.
Hi Gregory, thank you for sharing this review. We're sorry you weren't happy with this fabric! Your satisfaction is guaranteed, so we will reach out to you about returning these shorts.
Fit great, awesome feel, looks nice. But man, they show every bit of sweat like my crotch went swimming. My wife doesnt comment on my clothes much, but shes instructed me to change out of these before because its so noticable.
Hi Grant, thank you for taking the time to submit this review. We're sorry this fabric wasn't good for you, but glad to see you've returned the shorts. Please let us know if we can help you find an alternative that will suit your needs better!
A 33 is more like a 29. I wish Patagonia would get their sizing right. Leg opening is way too big. Looks more like a skirt than shorts.
Thank you for sharing this feedback on the fit of these shorts, John. We appreciate hearing from you about your experience and we will share this with our product designers. We want you to be happy with everything you get from us, and we're happy to see you've returned the shorts that weren't going to work for you. Please let us know if we can be of any further help!
Very nice casual short
These fit TTS. No vanity sizing here. Love these shorts, but would like two small changes. The zipper fly cover folds a little weird and leaves the zipper showing. They also have zero stretch. 2% stretch would be great in these. Crotch sits pretty high so any large leg movements get tight quick.
We appreciate your feedback on the fabric and fit, Mark!
These are good quality, but didn't work for me style-wise. Purely a matter of personal taste. I read other reviews saying the waist was a little small, which I agree with. I ordered a size one inch up and the waist was fine. I just didn't love the overall fit (a bit baggy and an inch too long), both of which would be fine for others. Th... Read Moreese wear like they might be more comfortable on the golf course than the trail, which is probably what they're designed for. If that's your vibe, these are a great choice. It's just not my vibe.
These shorts are great for the first wearing. Great fabric, cool in summer, TTS. The first time we washed them, the gray dye started to streak. Having had this problem with gray Patagonia cotton shorts, we returned them for a refund. Wish they had held their color. They were great otherwise.
Hi Laurel! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the dye started to fade and streak after you washed them. We're happy to hear you returned the shorts as we definitely consider this a warranty issue. Feedback like this is crucial to improving things for future seasons so we'll share this with our design team.
Not what expected.
Sizing is way off. I have a couple of pairs of Quandary shorts in 33" and they fit great. These shorts in 33" are way too small. Can't even button when sucking in my gut and I don't even have a gut. Leg opening is way too big.
Hi John, we apologize for the off fit on those Lightweight All-Wear Hemp Shorts. Please feel free to begin a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) for a new size at any time.
Issue with this color
I purchased 3 identical shorts with different colors, this one would not fit me, the other two did just fine
Hi Thomas, this sounds like it might be a quality control issue and we'd be happy to help out with a [warranty return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) under our Ironclad Guarantee. We'll reach out to you privately as well, just in case you need further assistance.
Just really good shorts.
Had these a week or so and really dont want to take em off. Lightweight is an apt description, theyre super comfy even when its warm out.

Ripped after 1 month
I bought this shorts for my daily use .. but it is ripped after 2-3 wash . I wish I can share pic but there is no option
Thank you for submitting this review, Amit. We're so sorry to hear those shorts have already ripped! They should hold up better than that. We will reach out to you about returning them.
Great fabric for the tropics, worn in Costa Rica all year round
I use to wear stand up shorts and while the fabric seemed and is heavier it was always very comfortable and cool. Hemp is even more comfortable but maybe not as durable. The stand up shorts from the 70's and 80's use to wear longer than the hemp but that is not the case today.
So wrinkly, I tried everything, hang dry delicate wash, iron them steam them. After a couple hours of wear back to a wrinkled mess. Way to much work for casual shorts
We're very sorry to hear that the fabric of these shorts has been a disappointment. We recommend closing the button and zipper, turn them inside out, then machine wash warm with a mild detergent. Hanging them to air dry is best, but you can also tumble dry on low heat. No fabric softener should be used in wash or dry. In addition, your purchase is covered by our [Ironclad Guarantee](https://help.patagonia.com/s/article/Ironclad-Guarantee), so we would be happy to help you with a return and we're reaching out privately.
I normally wear a size 30 but ordered a 31 based on the reviews I read. They fit great and are comfortable. They are very light weight and will be great for the hot humid summers we have here. I have ordered them in every color. If there were additional colors I would order them too.
My waist looks like an accordian
Each time I wear these, the the shorts are completely covered with wrinkles radiating outward from the crotch like a sunburst. The fit on these shorts was what I expected, but the quality of the material is reminiscent of something that would cost 1/3 as much anywhere else.
Hey Matt, we appreciate the feedback on our Lightweight All-Wear Hemp Shorts. These shorts are a 76% organic cotton/24% hemp blend, so they can definitely be prone to wrinkling; nothing an iron shouldn't be able to smooth out. With that said, if you're unhappy with their performance, you're always welcome to return. Perhaps something with a synthetic material will be better suited to your needs, like the [Men's Quandary Shorts - 10"](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-quandary-hiking-shorts-10-inch/57826.html?dwvar_57826_color=FGE&cgid=root).
Bring back the original All-Wear shorts!
I like that these new All-Wear shorts now use a hemp/cotton blend for breathability, but durability has been compromised. These shorts wear out faster than the original 100% organic cotton All-Wear shorts (and the Stand Up shorts are not a good alternative as they are too heavy and chafe with their rough texture). Please consider bringing back the ... Read Moreoriginal All-Wear shorts!
Not my style
The fit around the waist is good. However, the way the legs are designed and cut is weird. They should have an almost imperceptible taper, it would make them less stodgy, but instead they go straight down and almost flare out in this odd boxy silhouette that isnt stylish or flattering. Its not even dad shorts, its grandpa shorts. The material itsel... Read Moref is a bit like crepe paper. I was expecting it to be thick and casual but it looks thin and formal like one of those cheap looking suits made from a shiny fabric except its matte. It needs to be thick and ropey and hang like the trail harbor line, those are excellent casual pieces. Would not recommend for a casual, worn in short.
Runs way too small
I wear a 33 waist in all my of jeans and shorts from other companies. These were extremely tight, unwearable, no stretch at all. I would probably have to order two sizes up for these to fit right. But Im just going to return because the giant logo on front ruins them and the material has no stretch to it. Would not recommend.
Hey Adam, we appreciate the feedback on the Lightweight All-Wear Hemp Shorts. We're sorry to hear that these ran small for you, and we will share your feedback on fit with the team. Details like logo placement and whether a material is stretchy or not can be found on the product page specs and features. For a pair of similar shorts with stretch and no logo, we recommend checking out the [Men's Altvia Trail Shorts - 10"](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-altvia-trail-shorts-10-inch/57185.html?dwvar_57185_color=NENA&cgid=root).
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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
