Perfect and versatile Gym and Everyday Wear Shorts
I got the Patagonia Men's Baggies Longs - 7" in grey, for my teenager son who has them already in black and dark burgundy. They are his favorite gym shorts, as well as warm weather casual shorts, and swim shorts. They are very versatile, and well made, and "cool" looking. We buy a new color every year.
Best all around/durable shorts
These are by far the best all around shorts Ive found. Im big on having a few staples and wearing those for basically all activities and these work perfectly as that. Great for hiking/backpacking and just everyday wear. The only problem with them in my opinion is the liner. Never been a big fan of liners on shorts but the easy fix is to just flip t...

BEST SHORTS EVER!!!
Love the look and design of these shorts. Super comfortable and a good all around versatile shorts. I can use them for anything. I mostly use these for running and working out. Please Patagonia dont ever change the design and function of these shorts. These are perfect! Bought the 7in.
Finally, shorts I feel good swimming in
I was introduced to Baggies when my brother lent me his for lake swimming, and ordered 2 pairs myself immediately. Whether in or out of the water, these shorts are comfortable, dry quickly, and look + feel good on chunky thighs. Kind of a "no brainer" to chuck a few pairs into whatever bag you're packing for warm weather.
Different than previous style
I purchased a pair of these years ago for hiking and ended up turning them into my everyday shorts. Light weight, quick to dry and very comfortable. I ended up ordering a second pair as a spare and they are not like the previous style. The fit is looser a d they come with a loose fitting liner like the 5 style which are more like older swim shorts.... Read More I ended up returning them.
I have worked in the outdoor industry for over 45 years teaching and guiding white water kayaking and fly fishing. I have spent more hours wearing baggies than probably anything else. Nothing is more comfortable no mater what your age. If your hobby or job includes water or you just want comfortable short, then baggies are definitely the best.
Best Shorts I Own
I originally ordered an XL, since that is my standard size. However, had to return for the Large and they fit perfectly. They are definitely a great short for everyday where (WFH approved!). These shorts can handle everything I throw at them, from running, lifting, hiking, and swimming. They do it all! Would recommend getting a couple pairs to rota... Read Morete throughout the week! Thanks Patagonia for making such a great product.
Nylon Makes the Best Shorts
For years I had two pair of Nike Nylon shorts that were my go shorts for everything. They are old and worn out and current Nike shorts are poly propylene or some wicking slinky material. I am so glad to find Patagonia's nylon baggies and being made from recycled materials is another plus. Thanks Patagonia.
Not what I expected
I bought a blue pair of shorts and took them in the pool. After one day of them being in the pool the color completely faded from the shorts. Now they are gray. They said they were able to get wet and unless I missed something where it specifically says dont take them in the pool I figured the color should not fade away after one day. Also the line...

Hi Trent, thank you for your feedback! We're sorry to hear the color did not hold up as expected. Please feel free to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it back to us under our Ironclad Guarantee.
I own a half dozen pair of 7" Baggies that I've purchased through the years. I appreciate their longevity, simplicity, quick dry feature and wide array of colors and patterns. I wear these for summer casual and working outside in the TX heat. I'm not wearing these for swimming, so not a big fan of the built in mesh liner. My biggest ... Read Morecomplaint is the depth of the side pockets which terminate next to the bottom hemline. Car keys, wallet, change, phone, tools, etc uncomfortably bang against my thigh while I move and are difficult to reach (which has nothing to do with my arm length). I wish Patagonia would revert to an earlier design where the side pockets end 4-5" above the bottom hemline. This keeps pocket contents close to the body and readily accessible. I'd then give them a five star rating.

Hi Kent, thank you for taking the time to write feedback on the Baggies- 7". We're sorry to hear you're not a fan of the pocket depth. We've passed this feedback along to our Design Team who are constantly improving and revising our styles. If you're looking for a comfortable, quick-dry short, you could consider looking into the [Quandary Shorts](https://www.patagonia.com/search/?q=men%27s%20quandary%20shorts&prefn1=gender&prefv1=mens). Though they were designed for hiking, they are also great for casual summer days and working outside.
Super Comfy and Versatile
Ive worn baggies for about 6 years now and love them for wearing around the house or in the water (primarily around the house). I like most things about the current generation, but the white tag on the inside is much stiffer and less comfortable than previous versions. If they switched to the previous tag material they would be perfect!
Versatile, but lackluster fit.
The medium is a bit snug, while the large is almost too roomy.
Response from PatagoniaSeptember 2, 2021
Hey Jeremy! Thank you so much for the feedback on the fit. The Baggies may not be the right style for you. You might like our [Men's Lightweight All-Wear Hemp Shorts](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-lightweight-all-wear-hemp-shorts-8-inch/57805.html). They come in a variety of inseams and have a more uniform fit through the thigh. You're always welcome to return the gear that doesn't work for you.
I think I have had over a dozen pair of baggies. I use them three day a week for My water exercise class, kayaking on the salt here on San Juan Islands, body surfing in Mexico every winter, and when ever shorts are appropriate.

Good if it was 1994
I wore a pair of 5 baggies in the 90s as a rafting guide and loved them. The design has not changed much, but that is the problem. Short technology has improved since then and now these shorts just seem like relics. They have no stretch and the liner is stiff. IMO they are overpriced and uncomfortable.

Hey TK, thanks for leaving us a review on the Baggies Longs - 7". We'll be sure to pass your thoughts along to the design team. We feel that some things are good from the jump, which is why you haven't seen many edits on this design. There is a reason people have consistently been buying them for decades! But nonetheless, we hear your concerns. We recommend checking out 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) as they'll provide that slight added stretch you're looking for.
Casual comfort baggie shorts
These shorts are great! I have several pairs of the 5 baggies for the beach, pool and surf. I needed a longer version and the 7 baggie fit the bill. I worn them for 10 days in Hawaii. Super comfortable, still wore them swimming, cliff diving, hiking and out and about town. Great construction, easy fit. Thanks Patagonia!
Comfortable, fast drying, but a bit too baggy for me
Very happy with these overall - they are comfortable and dry quickly so you can go from the beach to the bar. From a quality/comfort standpoint I give these a 5. My only issue, which is on me, is that I bought the 7" when I should have gone with the 5". The 7" hang just on my knees, and since these are a little baggy (hence the name)... Read More I end up looking like an 80s cartoon character with these on. I returned these and got the 5" version which I will review as soon as I get them.
Outer short fit but material heavier than hoped or; inner brief was baggy and useless. Just an oddly out of sorts product from Patagonia from my perspective.

Cannot be used for water sports
Water collects in the pockets and does not drain due to thickness of materials. Thus useless in any form of water sports. Essentially can only be used as a pair of shorts that never sees water.
Response from PatagoniaAugust 20, 2021
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the shorts and the water that collects in the pockets when you've worn them in the water. Although many of our customers have found these to be a good short for both in and out of the water they aren't designed to be a swim trunk. If you'd like to take a look at a pair of shorts better suited for the water we'd suggest checking out our [Board Shorts](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens-board-swim-shorts).
much larger than before
I have 2 pairs of these, in medium, same exact style... one from several years ago and one ordered last year. I wear them all the time. I ordered another pair recently and the waist is a full inch larger than the 2 previous pairs and did not fit at all. I haven't changed, and the other 2 pairs still fit fine.

I like these shorts (4 pair) in the 7" length. Love the not too tight elastic and baggie room in the legs and body. Perfect for any activity and daily wear here in Florida. Glad they are not of a stretch material!! Look good and feel good. The 7" length is perfect for a little more coverage.

Like anyone nowadays I like to provide feedback regardless if anyone would see it. We all have a voice thanks to the internet. That being said , these are a great product and I will buy again.

Perfect all day every day short
5" baggies were my go to for years, and I'm surprised by how much I prefer the 7" length. It's better coverage. They're great for all day, everyday, especially when going in and out of water. Comfortable for backpack and climbing harnesses. Quite durable, though after 3-4 years the elastic and liner finally give way.

Hey there Ben, feel free to send in your old baggies to us for a credit you can put towards a new pair. You can either [send back to us](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html), or return in store, which ever is easier for you! We're so glad to hear that you've gotten so much wear out of them.
Shorts that just work
I have had a pair of baggies, longs, for years. They have been buried in my shorts "rotation" for a while, so when they surfaced, I forgot they were Patagonia. Until I put them on. Wow. The fit and feel were both so good, compared to the other brands I'd been wearing, that I just had to check the tag ... yep. Patagonia. I ordered an... Read Moreother pair on the spot. I have no idea as to how many years I've had my originals ... no question in my mind I'll have both pair long into the future.
Baggy - large - as named. A bit stiff.
I was between sizes and ordered up, which was the right decision. Pros: Deep, sewn-in pockets Comfortable, brief-style liner High percentage of recycled materials used in manufacture Cons: Recycled, synthetic outer fabric takes a few washings to soften up. Oversized, baggy as the name implies Expensive
Love these shorts, but, as usual, sizing is weird.
I have about a 30 to 31 inch waste, and I ordered the mediums. I am finding that in order to make these shorts fit snugly I have to tighten the draw string to its max, which is fine. I really liked the fit and the material so I ordered a second pair, but in small this time. The small fit great around the waste, no draw string action required, but w... Read Moreere super tight in the butt; think Nacho Libré wearing Chancho's sweats. I find these kinds of sizing grey areas to be very common with Patagonia. Still love 'em though!

We appreciate your feedback, Christian!

An old friend
Baggies are baggies. And that's a good thing. I've worn Baggies for the past 30+ years and highly recommend them for all sorts of wear besides casual. Fit is generous no matter what size is ordered. Basic short fabric is sturdy to the touch and assures the purchaser many years of carefree wear. Brief style inner liner isn't restricti... Read Moreve and can be worn comfortably with undergarments. One wonders why Patagonia don't offer a liner less version at a reduced cost...HMMMMM.
Great shorts for just about anything
Perfect river shorts. I could never decide if I liked the original length better or the longs. Since they fixed the pockets on the longs (cut them a little shorter - thanks guys!) they're my go-to shorts. When rowing all day I find they keep most of my thigh covered and out of the sun. They wash easy, repair easy, and seem to last forever.
The Do Everything Shorts
These shorts are amazing. I fish for a living in SWFL and wear these 7 days a week. Theyre light, dry fast, super deep pockets & perfect length. Also wear them swimming and around the house casually. They do everything you could ask for in a pair of shorts. Dont ever change them!
Way too large
Yes these shorts are called baggies, but they should Atleast fit in size. I also tried a medium and it was too small. The fit is way too loose and even with a drawstring they slip off. I dont have a flat butt and I dont have a large butt, but my wife who has a thick butt didnt fit either. Sad because I love Patagonia.
Response from PatagoniaJune 14, 2021
We're so sorry the fit didn't work for you on these. You're welcome to return them.
This is my fourth pair of baggies. The two I have now dont offer a lot of support, so I thought maybe if I bought a new pair Id luck out. I am into packrafting now, so 7 inch baggies seemed like a good idea. You have a choice with them: hike the baggies up high like Stan Laurel, wear briefs or live with no support. Amazingly, I still like the short... Read Mores. The Patagonia mystique has carried me along for many years and lots of clothing.
Old school shorts
Bought two pairs back in the early eighties, couldn't find them anywhere in the house (x wife must have comshawed them!) Bought a new pair (May 2021) Love affair renewed! The "brief liner" is ok (I could do without it tho) Don't like to go "commando" so I wear them for "knockin about" casual. Fit is "roo... Read Moremy" hence, "baggies" duh! Substantial weight to the fabric is comfortable, yet not stiff or "boardy". Looking for the "go to casual" shorts? give them a whirl, they won't disappoint. Wish they came in that beautiful Patagonia "cobalt" blue, otherwise, go for it! Gonna give the 5 inchers a go in pink... I feel lucky! :)
Liked them so well I wanted more pairs. Not available in my size xXL. Then realized there was a store here in NashviIIe. Went to the store and no shorts in my size. BUT salesman said let me check our other stores. He got 3 pair from three cities on their way to my house two day air no extra charge. I love my baggie shorts!
Exactly what I was looking for
Well I ordered a medium 7" when I meant to order a small 5", but they're still exactly what I was looking for. Comfortable and durable shorts with massive pockets make it easy to bring things with hiking or running. There's a little loop, almost like a hair tie, in the pocket and it gives you something secure to attach your keys... Read More to while your out. As well as, a button on the back pocket to keep your wallet in place. Really makes my running experience much easier without having to worry about my keys falling out. Overall 10/10 would recommend. Full disclosure: I bought the correct size shorts later and somehow they're even better.
Waist & leg bands
My governing issue is that the elastic properties of the product exhaust, over time. I now machine wash cold and LINE DRY the product, which I hope will increase its wear life. If Patagonia Inc. concurs, I would suggest that you adjust the product's washing and drying care instructions.
Inseam weird & super long
Inseam / Groin area is off and I'm not a fan of the netted liner.

Not the best overall quality
If you recall how these shorts fit before the last corporate revision, you will recall that the elastic was very good. Today's version reminds me of what shorts most have been like before elastic materials. That is, the waste is nearly totally reliant on the pull tie and the leg elastic is pretty much none existent.

Hi Jake, thanks for the comparison on this newer model compared to older designs. We are sorry to hear there have been some revisions that are causing some troubles. We thank you for the feedback and welcome you to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) these back to us.
This is a staple
If you dont have a pair, get to. Baggies are staple for everyone. They apply to every single check box, last forever, and while they not be the most fashionable short available, they are far and away the most universally applicable. It doesnt hurt that they are made by a company who cares about the planet.
Best Swimsuit Ever
This is my 3rd pair of baggies in the past 20 years. My first pair (5" before they started making the 7") is still rocking and in great shape. When I went to the 7" longs, I had to go from a medium to a small to find the fit that I wanted (5'10" & 145lbs). My wife and I both work in schools, and I am around the water ev... Read Moreeryday in the summer with summer camp, so a good swimsuit is a must. We have 4 daughters, so when they saw the baggies in pink they made me get them. I can't wait to take a dip in them, and I love that y'all made the front pockets not as deep. Nice upgrade.
I live in Florida, hot almost year round. I wear these for almost everything. I live on a lake and fish, go to beach, boat on ocean, swim, I even wear these taking kids to Disney / theme parks (I wear tight briefs with them on those trips). The netting I like as during the summer, I can go without wearing underwear with them so less sweat (near 100... Read More% humidity is rough on cotton!). I have almost all the solid colors, and love em!
I am about 190 lbs and 6'2". I would say these shorts are larger than your average size large athletic shorts (which are usually a good fit for me). The waist ties are nice, but by the time they're tight enough, the fabric is bunched up in the front. On top of that, the inseam is such that when I sit down, almost my entire inner thig...

Its been a lot back and forth .... Emails and phone calls.... very nice people .... it all worked out at the end buying 2 shorts, getting only one w E mail saying 2 has arrived! Calls and Emails ..... finally got my 2. short and a 3. !!! Returned the 3. short as I promised. Jenni has been on top of it - thank you. My boys like these shorts A LOT.
Tried a large in these and they were the size of a small tent - medium was much too small - need a medium and a half !! Quality looked great -try to support Patagonia but finding it difficult as sizing varies so much product to product.

We're sorry to hear these didn't work for you, Richard!

They are the best!
From the first time I saw these shorts, I knew they were for me. I wear them all of the time in all parts of the year. They are tough, light, and super comfy. Now, if they would just make the red pair in the 7" again. That is the one color that I want but don't have. Keep up the good work guys!!
Perfect for fun-hogging
Been wearing baggies for two decades now. It is the go-to shorts for just about everything. Pretentious, tried, and true. So here is my review; 1.) love that it came back with the bottom hem line for the pockets. Baggies a few years ago started losing this hem line. This caused articles inside the pocket to slap your thigh crazy when you are in str... Read Moreide. This problem is now gone. 2.) baggies I just purchased are still fairly new but it feels like the newer recycled material feel more durable than previous ones. I will continue to give feedback as time progress. 3.) the only gripe I have with these shorts is that the rear pocket flap rolls up or folds up on the edges over time. Maybe another snap closure button might solve this issue. The stitching around the crotch area is starting to show some wear quite early but my bum is constantly on a bicycle saddle so no fault on Patagonia for this. 4.)nevertheless, baggies are designed well, fits great, and keeps going. 7inch inseam is just the right length for most tasks.

Can't beat baggies, but the fit has gone downhill over the years!
Baggies are absolutely the best and most versatile shorts around. BUT... somewhere over the past couple of years Patagonia decided to change the fit.

I started wearing these this past summer and used them for anything from lounging around, to trail running, to swimming, to hiking. They are comfortable and my go-to's for nearly everything.

New favorite shorts
These are the most comfortable casual shorts Ive had. Perfect longer length avoids the 70s b-ball look, and the liner is not too restrictive, like a lot of workout short liners tend to be. Large front pockets and back snap one are convenient; only drawback is that heavier items like a larger phone tend to pull down a bit.
These shorts are probably some of the worst shorts I've ever bought, honestly. I thought they would be great after reading the reviews but they don't allow for much movement in them at all. They're really tight in the worst places and the lining is awful. I had to cut mine out just to even bear wearing these at all. Really bad shorts... Read More

Baggies - a friend from the past
I haven't bought a pair of baggies in a long time. My last pair was holding together by threads after 15 years of hard use. It was time to get a new pair. What can you say? Baggies work well in a wet environment, drying fast and letting you slip into a restaurant, in pre-Covid days, for something to eat after a sail, paddle, or swim.
A little large
Purchased 2 pairs of these Baggies 7in shorts. I think I'm somewhere in the nebulous region between size M and L, so I went with the Large just to be safe. The shorts are a little more loose than I'd prefer in some spots, but they're also kind of tight in others. The netting inside is interesting...as a result I prefer to wear them w... Read Moreithout anything underneath; it's actually more uncomfortable to wear them with boxers (they bunch up). The pockets are deep, but the opening is angled in a sort of way that makes it difficult to reach into them unless you're standing. The right-hand pocket has an elastic just inside the opening which can be very handy -- however I wish this loop was available on both sides. Overall these are good shorts. Decent amount of mobility when doing yoga, but can occasionally be constricting. I may be an outlier but I feel they also run a little large so if you're between sizes I would opt for the size down. I can't personally say I would buy them again. If I did, I would either go for a size Medium or get the 5in version.
