Otherwise, You wont regret your purchase and I am very confident for this shorts that I will be wearing them for... Read More years to come. Again, thank you Patagonia!!!
Perfect for athletic builds
Its been impossible to find shorts that fit because I have a small waist and big thighs (theyre not big but apparently my waist to thigh ratio isnt the norm). Im 55 125 lbs with an athletic/fit frame. These fit perfect on my waist and are looser around my legs. I appreciate how short they are because they dont ride up when I run or walk.
I bought these shorts for a white water rafting trip and was very impressed by the fit and quality. I wore them many times over the 14 day trip, both in the water and on hikes, and they held up great! They dried very quickly, had a perfect sized pocket, and wicked away any stains/sand. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.
Great board / beach / swimwear shorts
I love these shorts! Unlike the W's Wavefarer boardshoarts, which fit tight, these are loose and fun to wear. I am 5'4", 125lbs, with wide hips so shopping for shorts is always difficult. These are one of the few W's Patagonia shorts that fit me well. I normally wear a size 4 or 27/28 in jeans, and the size (S) fit me perfectly....

Best Paddling Shorts
These shorts are super light-weight, comfortable, and dry in an instant (no liner). They are perfect for paddling. The length is just right for sitting in a kayak or canoe and is not too cumbersome for swimming. The best part is how quickly they dry - especially for multiple day paddling/camping trips. Highly recommend. I wish Patagonia could make ... Read Morea comparable bikini top!
Great summer short
Bought a small based on what they stated for model size compared to my height/fit, and exchanged for an xs (which I've never bought myself before), so from my perspective they run a bit big. Unless you're looking for a looser fit, I'd buy a size down. However, I highly recommend!! -- comfy, lightweight, fast-drying.
Worth the purchase!
I tried searching for months to find a pair of plain, simple, comfortable black swim shorts that fit not too loose and not too tight. FINALLY I found these, and they fit perfect! Normally I wear medium in bottoms, but for these I found the small fit best. They are light fabric, very comfy. I actually bought a 2nd pair because I lost the 1st pair wh...

The best river shorts I've found to date
As a river guide, I picked up a pair of these a couple weeks ago to replace a pair of missing board shorts. Easily the best river shorts I've found to date! Super light and without a liner, they're both super comfortable and dry extremely fast. They're also the perfect length for sitting in a boat all day or swimming in the river. Lo...

Ordered a pair of these in medium with high hopes they would fit my thunder thighs. The wavefarers in medium were so tight,I couldn't believe it. I'm 5'5 and 150 lbs,curvy butt / thighs. These shorts fit so well that I'm ordering a second pair. Will be great to surf in and they're so light,they'll be perfect for hot we... Read Moreather.
Great shorts,especially over a bathing suit
I bought these shorts to wear over my bathing suit for beach days. I do not love the little star patterns,but with the grey color,they are not very noticeable. There is no inner lining,which makes these shorts more comfortable over a bathing suit and a small zipper pocket,which is convenient. These shorts are comfortable,water resistant (dry quickl...

I am 5'3" 130 lbs and wear a size 2 & 4 and small in shorts/pants and the size small fit me well. They are not too short,but if anything on the slightly looser size,but look great!
