Patagonia Men's Baggies™ Longs - 7"

True To Size
July 2, 2020

Great all around athletic shorts

Comfortable, durable, and quick-drying, these shorts are excellent. I bought my first pair over 30 years ago and have used them for hiking, running, rafting, swimming, kayaking, and even for basketball and tennis. At 5'10" and 160 pounds, I find the medium size just right.

July 1, 2020

Fits Perfectly for Athletic Thighs!

I think I have bigger quads than other people from all of the weightlifting I used to do and I was afraid I would have to order a Medium and a Small to compare the sizing, but my waist size is about a 30/31 so I went with the Small. I was surprised that there was still a lot of room in between the shorts and my thighs even though my waist is smalle... Read Morer than legs . The recycled nylon is a light material and more airy compared to Columbia's similar version of the shorts. I would definitely recommend getting the 7" if you want the shorts to end about an inch and a half above the knee.

Great shorts

Really comfortable shorts that fit well. Im usually a 36 and the XL fit well as I have pretty big legs and knew the large wouldnt be enough. These are perfect for a long lake day or anything involving water.

June 26, 2020

Comfortable and durable

Comfortable, fast drying and long-lasting. Hard to beat.

June 26, 2020


My new Baggies fit well and look great. Several people have told me that the color is sharp.

June 25, 2020

Nearly Perfect and Super Comfy

This is not my first buy of Baggies, I love them. Versatile, comfortable, bomb proof. The only thing I would wish for is as a zipper instead of a snap on the rear pocket for an added level of secure storage when romping in the surf with my dog

June 25, 2020

Met my expectations

Other reviews said they run a bit large, but I found them true to size. The medium is a little too snug on my muscular thighs. But a large would be too "baggy" for me, so all good. The quality is good. I wore them all day at the beach both in an out of the water and I was comfortable. I'm not a huge fan of synthetic materials (recycl... Read Moreed or not), but these are tolerable. I'm not blown away, but five stars for a well made product. These days that is an accomplishment in and of itself. Oh and kudos to Patagonia for calling out Facebook for what it is. We all have a part to play in this.

Nice Relaxed Fit

I'm a lean 6'2 with long legs so I ordered the 7" inseam size medium and they fit perfectly. The 5" inseam would be too short for my liking. After the first wash/dry they shrunk a tiny bit but not much to make a difference and it didn't take away from the comfort. I'll be ordering more colorways soon.

June 21, 2020


I love my baggies. Im 62 210 and prefer them slightly fitted so I went with M. Perfect fit.

June 21, 2020

Great pair of shorts

These shorts are great. They're comfortable, fit great, and work for a variety of activities. The only downsides I can come up with is that I don't like liners so I cut it out and the tag is on the front of these. I keep trying to put them on backwards. Other than that two thumbs up.

June 21, 2020


I'll us these for a bike tour in July for off the bike duties. I can hang out, swim, etc. and I know they'll dry quickly. It's this versatility that I was seeking.

I was so excited about getting these baggies. I ordered a large because thats what I normally wear. They were huge!! I kept them and gave them to my husband. I will try a medium next time. Love the quality and color!

A classic Patagonia shorts, what more to say!

June 19, 2020

Comfy and all around great

Great pair. The liner isnt too tight and is breathable. Have used them for hiking and casual wore. Caught in the rain and drys quick like advertised. They are pretty comfy that at times I end up sleeping in my pair after a causal Day with them. I usually do well in smalls but had to order XS cause small ended up being too baggie for my taste.

This is comfortable to wear. Nice design.

Perfect shorts. Only desire, boxer brief cut mesh rather than brief. Like the nine trail (is that right?) running shorts.

Wear these all the time. Does not matter what the occasion is!

Not a good range of motion

Super comfy

The material feels durable yet comfortable, and it fits well even on my thighs that resemble a cross between ham hocks and tree trunks. I also feel like they are never wet even after hopping out of the water. Great all around casual shorts.

June 17, 2020

Where did they go wrong?

I've been wearing baggies for more than 5 years, and have loved them. The recent iteration has a liner that doesn't provide any support, and just kind of hangs there. 5 star's on the outer short, and 0 on the liner. Patagonia has done better, and needs to step up their game again.

Baggies are THE BEST all around summer wear. Add boating (kayak, rafting) and gardening for the other places these get worn. Not yet decided whether or not to keep the liner. Thanks for great products and environmental ethics.

Great fit, great quality

Be aware that the product title is "Baggies" and this is correct -- these shorts run large to you give you a little more room. It's definitely a relaxed fit.

June 17, 2020


Love these shorts, I have them in 5 colors

June 17, 2020

Very similar to the Patagonia Baggies I wore in the late 80s

This pair of shorts feel great, lots of room by design, and are a tad too long for someone who is 58 BUT that can be easily fixed by tightening the drawstring. Ive been buying these shorts for years and will buy them again. The Patagonia brand is one of the few in my wardrobe that stand the test of time.

Versatile baggies

The fit is nice, I'm in between sizes 32-33 waist and the medium fits great with the drawstring waist. Deep front pockets can hold alot of gear and nothing is gonna fall out when you sit down, it's a bit of a challenge to grab small items out of the pockets but that's ok, liner is comfortable without underwear but if you just want ca... Read Moresual shorts then I would suggest cutting out the liner. Also I'm 6'2" and thought the inseam would be too short but its honestly just right

June 17, 2020

Awesome shorts with one exception

Absolutely love my 7 baggies. Super versatile and comfy. My only complaint is the mediums seem like a BIG jump up in leg width from the smalls. The leg opening is very wide. Theyd be perfect if they were a little less wide. The smalls are a bit tight but meds are super baggie. Guess I need a small+! Otherwise, best shorts ever.

June 17, 2020


Purchased these to hike and bike in. However, when I put them on they never came off. I wear them to bed to lounge in the house to run to the grocery store. Extremely versatile. Sturdy and the deep front pockets and massive back pocket fit just about everything. Very pleased with the purchase.

June 17, 2020

Great stuff

I use these shorts when Im around the water, boarding, kayaking, and general outdoor fun. They are great.

June 17, 2020

Unlike any other shorts

You simply have to buy them to experience how great they are. Lightweight and durable shorts perfect for any activity.

June 17, 2020

Best all round short this side of the pecos

Live in these and have for 30 + yrs. yard work and into the pool. Bike rides, everything. Sure wish you would make me the old white ones. Best , Andy

Great shorts with one flaw!

I think these are possibly my favorite shorts to date. I love them with one minor flaw. I feel like these shorts are made for the slim frame in mind.. I have considerably large thighs & butt and as I bend down, the shorts dont come with. Even when tightened, seems like the shorts miss a little baggie-ness in the rear for the guys who arent 150 ...

Best water shorts

Ive been wearing Baggies for nearly 35 years and this batch is as good as its predecessors. They are rugged yet comfortable and not too hot for fishing the Gulf or lounging around the pool. Very thankful they fixed the pockets so the contents dont drop all the way to the hem. Recommend Baggies highly.

Versatile shorts

All around versatile shorts. Play, skate and swim!

VERY versatile! They go anywhere, and do anything, and dry quickly.

Could be better but...

Maybe I got an older version after reading reviews? They were on clearance. I love that the pockets are big. Also hate that the pockets are big haha. My phone slaps me in my knee when I wear them.

June 11, 2020

Almost perfect

Material and fit impeccable. Only hope is that the mesh liner was boxer-brief shape and feel like the strider running shorts (rather than the brief cut liner).

June 11, 2020

perfect pants

have been wearing these for years. have several pairs just bought some while on vacation in the 5 inch size by mistake. prefer the modesty of the 7 inch. I prefer to remove the linings and wear with boxers. they are great all around shorts. I am surprised that some don't like the deep pockets I like them as my phone, change, keys etc won'...

Not made for an active lifestyle

I wish I could like these shorts more. Such a great concept to have an everything-pair of shorts, however these miss that mark. From the top of the inseam to the waist line - the length is so long in proportion to the shorts that it substantially limits movement. Enjoy biking? Hiking (actually steep inclines)? Yoga? Climbing?

Not for tall people

Love Patagonia so wanted to try these shorts out. Love the look/range of functionality, I just don't think they were built for taller guys.

Material is thinner

Okay finally the pockets are perfect! the previous pair I had the pockets bottomed out with the seam of the shorts... also the older pair I have the material is thicker.. just wish you guys kept the thicker material.

Not Cut for Athletic Legs

I practically lived in Baggies during summers in the late 1980s and 1990s. When I learned Patagonia made Baggie Longs I was excited to get a pair. I would otherwise love the shorts but they are too tight in the legs and rear. When I bend over the start to slide off and reveal the dreaded "plumber's crack". I am an athletic 5'9, ...

Runs large

Ordered a size large for my husband who wears a 34” waist. Definitely need the medium.

February 11, 2020

Best all around shorts

Never write reviews, but these shorts are great. I found them a little more comfortable after cutting out the inner liner. I have 3 pairs now about to order 2 more.

Super comfy

Love them! Comfy and they look good.

Bought them in black and grey. They look and fit great! Need to try out the 5” next!

Best swim and everyday use shorts ever. Thanks for making a great product. This new version, my last ones are over 10 years old, are more comfortable than the last. Thanks!!!

Great Shorts

I love the baggies and how they fit. I wish that the pants were a little bit more stretchy when using them for climbing or spike ball. Use them all the the time and definitely need another pair. Thank you!

Baggies are tight

Tight in the sense that they're aesthetically pleasing. They're comfy, versatile, and look great. The matcha color is a perfect subtle fall green without being too dark. I personally cut out the liner but that's just a personal preference. Excited to buy some 5" when I see those on sale!

Husband Loves Them!

The Baggies were a big hit for my husband on our recent vacation. They traveled easily between strenuous hiking, casual touring and the beach (swim/surf/snorkel), with no chafing issues. His first pairs, but certainly won’t be the last! Thank you, Patagonia! :)

September 6, 2019

Amazing! Even for Athletic Fits

I'm 6'1" and ~200 lbs -- usually I have issues with needing athletic fit pants due to wide hips/thick thighs and not wanting them to cramp my style, so to speak. These fit the bill in a Large (L), great length, great fit. Even the internal lining isn't bad (I usually cut it out, but not here!). I'd 100% recommend these.

September 6, 2019


I sleep in mine, do yoga, go hiking then swimming, and by bed they're dry again. 7" ers are moderately more presentable as I'm a leaner-backer in chairs.

20+ years of Baggies

I used to wear short baggies and now wear the longer ones (7") because of my kids teasing. I have been wearing baggies for over 20 years and still have my original pair, yes they need some help with their leg elastics, but still their over 20 years old and are still wearable and look great. These are a great product, don't change them

September 3, 2019

Great baggies!

Love the new baggie shorts; great for trail running, hiking or really any outdoor activity! This is my 2nd pair-wound up giving my 1st new pair to my 18 yo son...who wore them for about 12 straight days; great shorts!

September 3, 2019

Just Okay

Wanted more of a hiking short with a stretchy waist. Did not know they had the built in underwear. So I guess that makes them more of a swim short? A little expensive too. Sizing was good. It returned these.

Baggies Terrific

True to size, uber comfortable, stylish for all occasions.

These Aren't Just Baggie...They Fit Much Larger Than Advertised

I have a 29" waist and cyclist legs (i.e., big quads for my size). The size chart indicates I should take a sz. Small but those seem to be made for someone with a 32"+ waist (despite the 29"-30" listed in the size chart). I then tried a sz. XS (a rare size find from any manufacturer these days - thanks). They were OK but still a... Read More bit loose in the waist (perhaps better for a 30" waist but not the 28" in the size chart) and they are still way too baggy such that I look like a sack of potatoes in them. I get that these are called "Baggies" but that doesn't excuse Patagonia for "size inflation" especially when their pants are notably trim fitting (i.e., the 30"w Quandary's fit me great). Otherwise they seem just fine as watersport shorts (and the pockets weren't too deep on the pairs I tried on), though they are quite pricy for the simple materials & features provided. NOTE to Patagonia: smaller athletic-build people deserve to wear shorts that don't make them look like clowns, so please revisit the sizing on these (and also the Nine Trails too - see my review for those too)!

Response from Patagonia
September 4, 2019

Sorry about the sizing. You're welcome to [return]( them to a Patagonia-owned store or send them in for a refund or merchandise credit.

My favorite pair of Baggies is the first pair I purchased years ago and still wear, where the front pockets are normal size and hold contents close to the body. I wish Patagonia designers would address this. With this complaint out of the way, I can confirm they are true to size, very comfortable, quick drying, have an appealing variety of patterns and colors and a go to option whether in town or in the mountains.

Great shorts, but drawstring ripped easily

I was very excited to get my new shorts, but I was disappointed that after you use them with time the drawstring guide starts to rip. I really enjoy the material and color, just disappointed with quality of the drawstring.

Great Shorts

I like the lighter fabric on these compared to some of my older pairs. I also didn't notice anything unusual with the pockets so maybe that has been changed since the handful of reviews of too-deep pockets. I use them for everything from running to riding to outdoor work. They are indestructible!

MS Baggies, 7”

Extraordinarily well designed, well made product. These will last for years & I wear them almost every day for 8 months out of the year. They dry quickly after washing as do all Patagonia polypro/fleece. I have a jacket I’ve had for 20 years. Also love the colors of the clothing. Thank you for your good work.

Amazing piece of apparel! The deep pockets are nice. They take awhile to get used to but your phone and what ever else you store will not fall out. These shorts are amazing!

August 15, 2019

So dope.

I'm super stoked to say I've finally invested in a new pair of Baggies. The pair I was rocking before was from 1992 (almost as old as me and older than my wife), was passed down to me from my mom, and they're still awesome. I've ripped the old ones down the side and re-sewn them several times (mainly due to my bad stitching), so... Read More I figured it was time to put them on reserve status. The new Baggies are awesome. I've had them for a few weeks, and they're great for hiking, swimming, lounging, and looking super cool in any casual setting.

Great Shorts in stylish prints for men

These are my favorite shorts for summer. I can where them anywhere and feel in the moment. With a liner and deep pockets, they are perfect to travel in and they are good for a day at the pool.

August 13, 2019

The best, most versatile shorts I own!

I'm a big fan of the men's baggies. These are the ultimate summer shorts - I wear them to the pool, around the house, for yard work, hikes - everything! They fit great, have a great liner, and last!

August 10, 2019

Love them

I'm not sure why people have been writing complaints about the pockets, this is the first pair of baggies I've ever owned and I love them the way they are! Super comfortable, my new favorite shorts for every day use during the warmer months.

August 10, 2019


My husband is picky when it comes to swim trunks and he loves this pair. Not too long, not too short. Not slim fit but also doesn’t look like an old man’s pair of trunks. Just right.

Used to be excellent

These used to have a seam sewn into each pocket so their depth was about mid-thigh. That seam is now gone and the pockets go full depth.

New Pockets = Perfect Shorts

I prefer to spend most of the summer in baggies. I switch back and forth between the long ones (7") and short ones (5"). I like them both, but, like other reviewers, thought the pockets on the long version were just too deep. I got a new pair for 2019 and the pockets are fixed! They stop about 1.5" up from the bottom hem. Kudos to Pa... Read Moretagonia for addressing this issue. They're just about perfect now. I'm 5'8"/170ish and medium fits fine.

Skeptical at first because of the price but 10/10 product. The spiced coral looks amazing in person.

Perfect unless you carry stuff in the front pockets

I have so many pairs of these shorts from various retailers, seasons, etc. A few of them have the front pockets go all the way down to the hem. Big mistake.

Perfect pants

I'm 5,7 and 144 lb (173 cm/65kg) man with a little skinny leg. I bough small and xs and compared two. Small was good with waist but little boxy and longer.

These are a little small on me lengthwise, but I’m used to it. Otherwise these are some durable, good-looking, comfortable shorts.

Bring back the old pocket design

I have a number of these shorts and absolutely love them. They're virtually the only shorts I wear throughout the summer.

Better than ever

I have been wearing baggies for twenty years and still love them, but I felt inclined to write a review on a product that’s been around for decades due to the three star deep pocket review trend.

Re: Men's 7" baggies

My husband has worn baggies for years. Usually the 5". I bought 3 of the 7" for him and as usual they didn't disappoint. Baggies are the best shorts out there by far. The pockets have nice depth and well what can I say. He loves them. Patti from California:)

Great all-around versatile shorts. I wear these for all kinds of activities ranging from hiking and swimming to bbqing and lawn mowing.

Great shorts up until last year

I have been buying baggies for awhile now and honestly they are the greatest shorts out there. I wear them nearly everyday in the summer for pretty much any activity.

Perfect except for the pockets are too deep

I love the fit, pattern, and durability of these shorts, but the pockets are so deep that they are annoying. Things with any weight, like keys will bounce against my thigh like a pendulum with every step. Such a surprising design flaw.

January 2, 2019

What happened to the pockets??

I have several pairs of these shorts. My wife purchased me two more for Xmas ... I can't wear them. The front pockets are too deep!! You guys need to fix this. I get your emails. Send something out ... Otherwise, I will need shop somewhere else.

My best swim trunks

These turned out to be my most expensive and best swim trunks. Very comfortable. Only use them for doing laps in the pool, like my other trunks. Never wear these things casually. So, I am technically ambivalent to the absurd pocket depth, because I never use them. Again, great for recreational swimming.

Deep Pockets are terrible

The Fun Hogs pattern is incredible. It would be really awesome to see this on a shirt, maybe even a Pataloha shirt!!!

Almost perfect, but major flaw

These could easily be the most versatile shorts in the world if they just had functional pockets. Instead, the pockets are so deep and low you'll literally have to pull the bottom of your shorts up to get to anything in there. If you can see, make your pockets more shallow

September 14, 2018

Embrace the deep pockets!

Perfect length and bagginess. Top 10 gear pieces of all time. Deeeeep pocket, nothing will fall out of them! All these pocket haters are straight trippin. Swimming town long runs, anything! 6’3 190 went with the medium. Found one at the store that’s a deep purple....💜

New design disappointing

Was a great product for 20 years! The pockets in the new design go to the bottom of the shorts. The old design had a sewn seam 3 inches up from the bottom of the shorts.

Pockets are pretty not rad. I use these in the pool and when running so I carry little things in my pocket when wearing these, but still. Patagonia please fix this. I would also like to see zippers as my items have fallen out a time or two especially in the car.

Why did you deepen the pockets???

I have several of these shorts. They WERE great,until somebody got the terrible idea to deepen the pockets. I bought a new pair this season and took it back immediately.

Please bring back the shorter pockets.

Everything about these are great. They look the part,are quick drying,include a great mesh liner. But this new version has pockets that go all the way down to the bottom of the seam. Raise the pockets 2 or 3 inches,and these are a 5 star pair of shorts. Pretty disappointed with this design change. It seems the other reviews feel the same way,too.

Pockets! Pockets!

My wife bought me three pair to replace the ratty ones I wear all the time. The fabric seems the same durable quick drying nylon and the mesh liner looks to be more durable but the deep pockets are a deal killer for me. The cut through the hips also seems slightly tighter than my other shorts. I had to return them.

outstanding shorts!

Wonderful,great-looking and well-made shorts,used for hiking,surfing,yard work,and just walking around. Great shorts to live in as I do with shorts. I have five colors.

Read Moreacross to the side seam stitching,and about 4' up from the bottom of the shorts. That way you can easily create a side pocket you can actually use for a wallet or stuff. You only need to do one side of the shorts,preferably on the opposite side of the back pocket so things are balanced when the pockets are filled. And it won't take away from the look of the shorts if the new stitching matches the material. I'm thinking of doing this myself,and if I do,I'll send a pic.

June 2, 2018

Great material,but the pockets suck!

The baggies have always been the best shorts. The latest revision with the deep pockets has to go they aren't really functional anymore with stuff in your pockets. Please raise the pocket line 2-3inches

Fit great and comfy

Love the baggies shorts,have some baggies pants and they are my favourite for travel and adventures. The shorts don't disappoint,my only problem is the newest version has pockets that's go all the way to the bottom hem which is uncomfortable with things in them. Not a massive deal as I plan on using them mostly as swim trunks.

The Perfect "Do Everything" Shorts

I've been a commercial river guide since 1990 - I've literally spent the overwhelming majority of 25+ summers wearing Baggies. I've climbed and hiked in them. I've run and swam in them.

The other problem is that because the pockets are so deep and everything has settled at the bottom of the leg,it slams into your leg or knee as you walk and is annoying and painful.
