Men's Baggies™ Longs - 7"

True To Size

Since 1981.

Not my first pair but hopefully not in a bigger size when they wear out!

Spider monkey proof

I bought these shorts because Josh wrote an epic review on November 3, 2022. What a legend Josh is. You can trust Josh that no spider monkey is getting through these bad boys.

Little scratchy

I love the durability and the quality but wish they were a little softer and the inner lining provided more support -little loose. Otherwise same great quality product I expect from Patagonia. Maybe its the recycled material not so soft.

Cool swimwear for full bodied guy

Waist and length are great for swimwear. Legs pretty baggy but that comes with the territory. Have 5inch inseams too for workout and casual wear but these are better as swimwear for my body shape. Pretty cool pattern too

December 12, 2022


The fabric and quality of the shorts were very good, as one would expect from Patagonia. However, the fit is very strange as it was somehow tight and loose at the same time. Overall, I am disappointed in the comfort and fit of the shorts and would not be interested in purchasing them again.

Wore these while snorkeling in

Wore these while snorkeling in Puerta Vaillerta Mexico. Dried quickly,felt great.Love the recycling of fishing nets.

Probably The Best Pair of Shorts Ive ever owned

This is the first thing Ive ever owned from Patagonia and it will for sure not be my last. These shirts are simply brilliant. Ill call these Goldilocks shirts.

I really love these shorts.

I really love these shorts. like everything yinz(pittsburgh PA slang) people make it is high quality and very comfortable. My only complaint is that the shorts have to be tied or else they start to slide down.

From Nine Trails To Baggies Days

While Iv'e been a big fan of the Patagonia Nine Trials for all workouts (love the inner lining and zippers), but decided to purchase the Baggie 7" for post run, post gym, rest days & the Baggie did not disappoint. Its my relax, cool down, go to and the big pockets work well for someone who likes shorts with zippers!!

September 16, 2022

Great shorts with one drawback.

The shorts fit me perfectly and are true to size (Large). The material is rugged, yet comfortable and they dry in a few hours. The only drawback is the inside liner rides up towards my waist when my phone and or wallet are in the pockets. This is due the extra weight of the phone and wallet pulling down the outer shell. Shell goes down and liner ri... Read Moredes up. This happens even when I tie the waist string to tighten around my waist.

I live in baggies.

For many years (decades?) Ive lived in my baggies all spring and summer. From the dog park, to bike ride, yoga and tennis. Cant water ski in them as I fall too often. Use surf shorts for that and the ocean. The longs are slightly dressier than the original, so perfect for dining, picnics or even grocery runs.

Better Than Ever Baggies

Used to wear Baggies shorts a lot, back a few years ago (ie, 1980s!). On a whim, I picked up two pair this summer on sale. Both fit great, feel terrific, and are often the first thing I put on in the morning. Hi

Shorts tend to slip

These are great shorts except that the elastic on the waist is pretty loose and the it is quite difficult to get the drawstring tight enough. So, if you have anything in you pockets your short tend to slip down. Bit tired of re-tying the drawstring....

A true classic great for any water sport or mowing the lawn.

August 31, 2022

Solid purchase

I have been on the cusp of purchasing a pair of baggies for over a decade. Finally did it, and I just as I suspected, they're perfect . I wear them in the ocean, and running w the dogs, and chillin on the couch. Im hooked.

August 29, 2022

The right fit

I originally purchased the shorts in XL, the size which works with all of my other pants and shorts. The cut was much to full though, for a baggie. The large works well. My weight is 205. The shorts are quick drying and, after only a month of use, seem well made.

August 29, 2022

Super confortable

Love the fact that the pocket in the back clips closed and can keep a wallet secure. Big pockets also help carry phone and more. But sure about the net at all times, but can be handy

August 27, 2022

Great when one is going to get wet!

Fits great, looks good, nice fabric texture, and well constructed. A home run of a product.

Shorts are more than baggy. Felt like a large. If I wear them at my natural waistline ( where most guys pants end up), the crotch of the shorts is between my knees and my real crotch. As for the liner, it is huge. If it is supposed to prove an undergarment feel, it is no where close. When hiking, it is like nothing under the short. In the pool, it ...

I have not returned them because I believe in what you are doing, and am a loyal customer. Just making the adjustments and moving forward. I am sure the work fine for most customers.

Hey Forrest, we appreciate the feedback on our Baggies - 7" shorts. We're sorry to hear that you were not fond of a few different aspects, including the liner.

I recently purchased baggies shorts

I recently purchased baggies shorts but the length is 9 inches rather than 7.

If I ride that trike with anything in side pockets that dont close the contents of the pockets will fall out. I take that into account and carry nothing in those pockets. With the zippered side pockets the worry is gone. My keys are safe. If the baggies long 9 inches had zippered pockets that would be fantastic. Large secure side pockets would be great. I am hoping to see that refinement next year.

Nice enough

I ordered a pair of the Baggies longs - 7" inseam. It seemed more like a swimsuit than a pair of shorts - inner mesh and drawstring, but no belt loops.

So relaxed

These are the most relaxed and comfortable shorts I've ever owned. We're sailors, and these are the perfect shorts once the boat is at anchor or on the mooring ball. They're great in the water as well. I bought three pair, and could have bought more.

Horrible fit

I don't know what kind of lower body the person has who designed these but they must have zero butt or muscle, these are some of the most uncomfortable fitting shorts i've ever had the misfortune of owning and bringing on a beach trip.

Perfect travel shorts for rainforest hikes & swimming

Bought these for my husband for our Costa Rica rainforest trip. Our clothes never dried out because of the humidity and rainstorms every day, so these shorts became only shorts he wanted to wear.

July 14, 2022

Is multi-use better than focused?

This is a tough item to review. The shorts seem like they could be great for a lot of different activity, but they don't stand out as excellent for anything. The material feels a little...something...stiff? Robust, certainly. I believe it will resist wear very well over time, but it is a heaver weight for the type. The legs are baggy, as the n... Read Moreame implies, so that helps a bit with air flow. The inner liner makes these feel like swim shorts, and they're fine in water and dry quickly, but the liner is a little loose for my taste to wear the shorts on their own. The baggy nature of the legs also captures air and (potentially) shows off a bit more than some may be prepared for. The liner isn't so loose as to flash people, though, so perhaps I'm overcritical. All of that makes it sound as though I don't like the shorts, and that isn't true at all. They are convenient and a bit like an AWD crossover. For basic use in almost any activity, they'll be fine. The construction lends itself to water, and hiking with a chance of waterfall is probably their perfect home. You could surf in them, maybe even run a bit. There are better options for both, but if you suddenly needed to run to the beach and hit the lineup, you could.

July 8, 2022


I ordered these for my 19 year old son. He loves them! The fabric feels good, the fit is great. True to size. Easy to care for and always looks good. (Even when thrown into a duffel bag for a few days)

The versatile always ready shorts. In the summer months I wake up play a round of golf, fish and then take a dip in these. Once dry I rock them to my local farmers market. They are comfy but durable.
