Long Baggies are a YES
I wear these all summer, then they turn into my house wear! Essential shorts for everyday. Some times I cut the liners out and wear these with compression boxers, or a bike shammy. Deep pockets the longer fabric is more modest for around town use. All around great fast drying shorts.
pockets are sewn in a strange way
whenever I hit the waves the pockets fill with water, they look like 2 balloons, there's a problem with the design. The stitch line goes above the mesh, that's why it takes a lot drain. It's physics... you should reconsider the pockets stitching.
Thank you for this feedback on the pockets, Juan; we're sharing your thoughts with our designers. If this gets to be too frustrating please keep in mind you can [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) them if you wish.
They ruined the best shorts!
I have been wearing these shorts for 8-10 years (I don't know). When I found them, I had found the best shorts I have ever owned. The fit great. They looked great. I wore them for everything from fishing to dinner out. When Patagonia resigned them and moved manufacturing, they ruined them. They are now heavier and the fit is terrible. There is... Read More a weird pull across my crotch. they fit funny in the thigh. I had hoped that this was a temporary thing, but I just spoke with a CSR that told me they have not changed in the last 12 months and there does't seem to be any information on a redesign in the foreseeable future. PLEASE, make them like you did 5-6 years ago. As of now, these shorts have went the way of Vasque Sundowners, Newcastle Brown Ale, and countless other products that I have fallen in love with & then the companies sell or "Improve" the product - leaving me sad and looking for a replacement.
Hey John, thank you for the feedback. We're sorry to hear that the redesign has been such a disappointment for you. We implemented these design changes in Spring of 2023. We'll share your feedback with our product team for future consideration.

Good shorts, bad tags
For some reason the shorts I bought don't have care instructions in English on them and the website smugly refers me to the tags when looking for care instructions. All in all an almost positive experience.
Hi Jones, thank you for this feedback. We're sorry if the tags proved frustrating! The care instructions for these shorts are posted on the product page: machine wash cold, do not bleach, tumble dry low, do not iron. You can find more detailed care instructions for our products [here](https://www.patagonia.com/repairs/). Please let us know if we can be of any further help!
Still Great Shorts
I have been wearing these baggies for about a decade, mostly for biking (over padded bike shorts). Still great, changes have been minimal over the years. Some people say they now run too small, some say too large, I think they are fine. And for all of those who say they are "too baggy," perhaps you should consider that shorts named "...

I love Patagonia Men's Baggies Longs - 7"
This new color called: Fitz Roy Patchwork: Ink Black is so good that I can wear any top or jacket and still be fashionably in sync. I think this is my 14th pair of Baggies shorts- I'm a BIG fan of the fit, material, warranty, construction, customer service, stand on saving our home planet and providing a living wage to all involved.
I have 3 pairs of Baggies purchased over the past few years. While my height & weight (155 lbs.), remain consistent, the shorts do not. One pair is uncomfortably tight (I cut out the inner lining but it didn't make a difference); second pair fits nicely: most recent pair is too loose in the waist. I've added a cord loc to the drawstr... Read Moreing but they still slide down over my hips. The elastic waistband seems ineffective. The shorts themselves appear to be quite nice. Hard to purchase more items when encountering this inconsistency. Seems like things aren't like they used to be. Too bad. I've been wearing Patagonia products since the days of the Great Pacific Iron Works Stand-up Shorts.
Pockets are so awkward to get into. I have to do like a mini backbend to get my hand in the pocket. Annoying. Pockets need zippers and a slant easy entry. Stiching on front is not attractive. Come on people, I love Patagonia. Let's get this together!

Enjoying this purchase
This is my first pair of Baggies. I wasn't sure if the Longs were what I would like but I find them to be perfect for hiking, walking, general wearing and (when I get a chance) likely swimming.

The shorts of summer
Ive been buying these shorts for 15+ years. Ive never worn a pair out. They are comfortable, regardless of what Im doing and look good enough to go anywhere you would wear shorts.

I Keep Coming Back to Baggies
I have worn countless number of Baggies throughout my life and continue to come back for more. Hard to imagine my new pairs are even better than the last.

These shorts are my favorite Patagonia item so far. I got them for 50% off so they were 100% worth it. For MSRP, I dont think Id buy them though. They work great for hiking and running. They were ok for swimming but the seam at the bottom of each leg is a bit too scratchy. Water beads up on them as well unless theyre completely wet through
GREAT - same as they ever were.
I don't get all the negitive comments about these shorts. I wore them at 35 and I am wearing them at 55. If you're looking for technical surf shorts - these are not them.

SW Desert Hiking
Around dawn in the Southwest, once the coyotes are gone but before the heat comes on, I take my morning hike in my Baggies Longs. I enjoy the varieties of colors they come in, but treasure their durable structure, their pockets, key cord, and that back pocket to keep my bandana in reserve, if the sun starts to cook my neck.
A timeless classic
Been a fan of the Baggie line for years, but as I've 'aged', was grateful to learn of a longer inseam option. Overall, this short brings to bear all of the things that the originals offered, but I was hoping that the liner material might be a bit less 'stiff' or course. One additional suggestion would be to incorporate mate... Read Morerial with some stretch to it.
Perfect for cumfy every-day wear, but don't put anything in pockets!
I really like these shorts for everyday wear. They are extremely comfortable, and nice and roomy. The only downside is they are a bit on the baggy side, and if you put anything in the pocket with weight (ie your cell phone), the shorts slide down as you walk. They do have a waistband tie string, but tying that makes the shorts much less comfortable... Read More. If Patagonia increased the width of the elastic waistband a bit, I think that might provide just enough additional elasticity around the waist to prevent sliding shorts. The current waistband appears to be about 1/2-inch wide. I own other Patagonia elastic waist shorts where the elastic waistband is closer to 3/4-inch to 1-inch wide, and those shorts stay up much, much better.
A must have staple in your summer wardrobe
I have purchased two pairs (a large and today a medium) and absolutely love them. Great to slip on after work to chill around the house, and, bonus, they work if I jump in the river to throw the fly, these are tough, sturdy, comfortable and they look good.

Not too happy with my baggies because long story short, theyre simply not baggy. Im 6ft, 200lbs, size 32 waist, with the ever so slightest athletic build, yet these choke my groin/gluteal region. The waist is too large to be worn without tying them, so its hard to justify that I sized them too small. I would be hesitant to go larger because I feel ...

It. Has. A. Liner.
The product description definitely says it has a mesh liner, but Patagonia should really include a picture with the liner prominently displayed. I don't know how this is supposed to be comfortable unless you're not wearing underwear, unless that's the point.
We're sorry to hear that the liner in these Baggies is a disappointing feature. It is designed to be used in place of underwear. We recommend that you return them to the Patagonia-owned store in your area, or use our online Return Portal. You may prefer our [Hydropeak Volley Short, Outdoor Everyday Shorts, or Funhoggers Cotton Shorts](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens/bottoms/shorts) without a liner. Thanks for taking a moment to send us a review, Andrew!
Latest Version Runs Large
I have worn the 7" Baggies for nearly 10 years and love them. However, the latest iteration of the short runs a full size larger than its predecessors. The inner liner didn't provide support, and the length struck the middle of my kneecap instead of above my knee. The waist requires that the drawstring be tied, or they will fall off. The ... Read MoreXL fits like an XXL. I also laid the old on top of the new and there was a significant difference in sizing. I will still recommend them, but with the caveat that you need to size down.

Great if not for liner
I like them other than the liner which is uncomfortable and ruins the short for casual wear. As far as I can tell; there are no pictures of the liner in the marketing and the only place you can tell there is a liner is in the Features/Specs. Another small issue is that the liner is described as "black mesh". It's clearly white. Doesn... Read More't matter since I cut it out.
Hey Sean, thanks for the feedback. We're sorry to hear that the liner is was not comfortable in your experience. We'll check in with our website team to work on any discrepancies with the color description. You're correct that all shorts will outline whether they have a liner or not under the "Specs & Features" tab. If the product has a video as well, it will typically also be mentioned there. We're glad to hear you ultimately made these work for your needs.

Change in sizing?
I love baggie longs, they've been my go to shorts for at least 30 years. (OK, maybe they were just baggies back then.)

Hey Rick, thanks for the review. We double checked on these shorts to see if we made any changes to the fit, and it looks like the only redesign we've done is to the material package, not the fit. If you prefer an older pair of these shorts, we recommend checking out our available selection on our [Worn Wear website](https://wornwear.patagonia.com/shop/search?q=baggies).
Not remotely as good as they used to be
I am a fan of Patagonia's products and the company but I have no clue what the company was thinking when they changed the Baggies to whatever they are supposed to be now? First, why add the liners? It limits the all-around functionality of these shorts. I guess if you want to wear swimming and want a liner, it makes sense. With the liner, fo... Read Morerget about wearing baggies mountain biking, running, hiking, etc. The liner is just annoying and a "bug," not a "feature." Seriously why the liner? It makes ZERO sense. Second, the material has taken a step back. The previous versions of Baggies were softer and offered more "stretch." The new version of Baggies are "course" and not stretchy. It makes the shorts less comfortable but I guess dry quicker (not worth the tradeoff). To wrap up, I used to wear Baggies ~3 days a week in the summer and they were perfect for whatever I was going to do. Even though I cut the liner out of my new Baggies, now I just decide to go with other shorts that are more comfortable for me and adaptable to what is my day brings. .....Overall, a big fail by Patagonia designers.

Super versatile short. Pack for every adventure
Been using this short for the last 8 years. I pack it in hydration pack mountain biking for enroute swim and comfortable post ride wear. Great for paddle boarding comfortable enough for short hikes and great for pool swimming. Pocket layout is great for a casual short. Super simple design easy to change into.
Not All Baggies Longs are the same
In the hot desert summers I exercise at dawn with my Baggies Longs and a light T-shirt. Recently I ordered two new Baggies Longs, one in black, the other in greenish. I was surprised to see they were apparently of different vintage. The black pair had a key loop in the right hand pocket, the greenish pair did not. The black pair was a tad heavier t... Read Morehan the greenish pair. Both were the same price. On more thing, both pairs camd with a 4 inch plastic notice about recycling them. But the notice chafed against my bare skin while exercising. When I cut the labels off with scissors, unfortunately I also cut the mesh brief where it attaches to the waist, on the greenish pair. So, after first use, one pair is slightly damaged. I hope the rip wont worsen. Its a nuisance but not worth an exchange, especially since I did the damage, inadvertently. BTW, the old prior pairs I had given to Goodwill.
These are my 6th pair of Patagonia Baggies and I am a repeat buyer becasue, like everything Patagonia, they are durable (I've never worn a pair out), comfortable, fit great and look awesome.

Best all-around shorts
PATAGONIA: Please make these with and WITHOUT liners. Make that an option when purchasing please. I have seven pair, four Ive cut the liners out of. In an effort to reduce waste please offer them linerless for those of us who dont want/need a liner. That would reduce waste, reduce cost, and make for a product thats more versatile! Ok, these short... Read Mores are amazing. Wear them for nearly all my activities and for casual wear outside the house. Theyve been climbing, rafting, hiking, swimming, fixed cars, been repaired, and keep on ticking. I love the bungee to keep my key when Im trail running, love the rear snap pocket, and the drawstring. The mesh pocket bottoms help when Im swimming and I appreciate how quickly they dry. Dont love the super deep pockets, and wish they had a linerless version as I dont need a liner when Im wearing them out with friends or around the house. I have seven pairs and theyre the best shorts around. Theyre durable and really the only shorts I wear. Cant recommend them enough!!
Comical That a Version Without a Liner Doesn't Exist - Please Make One
While these are great swim trunks, they're also marketed as all around fun shorts. This would be true if they didn't have a mandatory liner that made your boxers ride up and out, every time you didn't want to go commando, or weren't planning on swimming. I've seen hundreds of posts on social media/Reddit of people cutting ... Read Morethe liners out their baggies so they can wear them normally, and the fact that after 20+ years Patagonia hasn't figured this out/provided a version without a liner, is genuinely comical. This wouldn't be as funny if the solution didn't also involve streamlining/reducing materials, a core design tenet of Patagonia's development team, and overall brand philosophy. The Baggies are one of Patagonia's flagship products, and a consistent summer revenue driver. I can think of nothing more obvious than introducing a non liner version of these shorts for fans who don't want to go commando every time they wear them. Patagonia, please make a liner-less version.

Hi Aidan, thank you for taking the time to submit this review. You're right that these Baggies aren't designed for a snug fit, but rather a more relaxed fit.

I won't name names, but there are other multi-use shorts out there that I find better fitting, quicker drying and much more comfortable.

I recently purchased baggies shorts
I recently purchased baggies shorts but the length is 9 inches rather than 7. I do have multiple pairs of the baggies long 7 inches and I really lke them The 9 inches are better for me as they have bigger side pockets and a snap closure rear pocket. I also have recently purchased nine trail running shorts 8 inches. These shorts have zipper side po... Read Moreckets and rear pocket. I ride a Catrike Dumont recumbent. 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.
Fit great/ color is off
The shorts fit great, but the colors are completely different online as compared to in person. Both the gray and blue shorts are much lighter in person.
Hi Evan, we're sorry to hear that the colors didn't come through correctly on our site with your Baggies. We'd be happy to accomodate a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) whenever you're ready.
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. They fit okay until I put stuff in the pockets, like my wallet and cell phone, and I had to keep hitching them up, which was annoying; so I exchanged them for a pair of Quandary shorts, which a...

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. The pockets are way too deep as well. The upper thigh portion in FRONT of the shorts fits so oddly, its ... Read Morelike you weren't meant to move around in these. Kind of odd for swim shorts. Lastly the liner is the weirdest fitting piece to it all. I don't even know how to describe it other than extremely uncomfortable.
Hi Charles, thank you for leaving this review! We are incredibly sorry to hear that you are disappointed with this purchase. Please know you are always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) an item at any time if the item does not fully work for you.
Best travel shorts
Lightweight, packable, and durable. Just returned home from a 12 day road trip to Acadia National Park and had 3 colors of these shorts with me along the way. They held up well all over and around Acadia and into the Atlantic Ocean, were there atop Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, and took a dip with me in Huron, Michigan, and Lake Superior, and al...

what's working for me is
what's working for me is the incredible customer service. I have ALWAYS loved Patagonia products despite the inflated price tag--they are durable, I am still cross-country skiing in Patagonia apparel that I purchased over 3 decades ago. Recently I bought a pair of baggie shorts and the medium was too constricting (ah age...). Exchanging the pr... Read Moreoduct for a pair of large baggies was seamless and pleasant.
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. The mesh liner kept him cool and dry and the shorts didn't cling to his legs. He also wore them when we went snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, an...

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.
"Put them on in May, take them off in September"
Not an original title. This was the slogan for Baggies way back when I ordered my first pair maybe twenty years ago or even longer. They are a staple of my coastal New England lifestyle and I wear them all summer as my go to swimming, kayaking, sailing, biking shorts. Actually, I pretty much wear them as my every day around town shorts too. Super w... Read Moreell-made and super quick drying. Great colors. Proud to wear the Patagonia brand. JMcG
Good for casual swimming
I typically wear a 38/40 in things and the site recommended an XL. I found them to almost be too roomy, but they do have tie straps to cinch them up. They have good coverage on the legs, and the little mesh undies built in. Comfortable, the exterior dries very fast, the liner is slower to dry. I feel like the color faded on them very fast. Only wor... Read Moree them on and off for a week to the ocean and a pool once, and I feel like the blue color has already faded to a pale blue. Other than that, they're great, and would definitely recommend.
Thank you for sharing this review, Clinton. We're sorry to hear the color has faded! If it ever bothers you too much, please remember you are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) them.
I wear the Baggies daily from April thru October, actually year round, just under long pants in the winter waiting for the sun to come out and temperatures to rise. They hold up great for work (I build and maintain trails), at home in the yard, playing volleyball, and as casual wear. I pretty much live life in them. Itll be interesting to see how t... Read Morehese new ones, made from recycled plastic, hold up. So far so good
Patagonia successfully helped the planet by using recycled fishing nets to make these shorts, and created the best shorts I've ever worn for summertime fun. I use them in the garden, in the river and around the back porch listening to music in the evening. Thanks for using recycled fishing nets!
My Favorite Pair Of Shorts
I have had a pair since 2019 and they are by far my favorite pair of shorts. I wear them all the time casually, for running and hiking and to swim. I especially love them for summer trips where there is access to water. They are extremely hardy, and work great for all sports. I occasionally use them for Mountain Biking and they work great. I highly... Read More recommend buying a pair.
