A bit long
waist ok, length an issue if you're 5'6. they're almost knickers not shorts.
Thanks for the review Brandon. These shorts do have a 10" inseam, but we have other comparable shorts with a shorter inseam if you're interested. We recommend checking out the [Men's Outdoor Everyday Shorts - 7"](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-outdoor-everyday-shorts-7-inch/57436.html?dwvar_57436_color=PIBL&cgid=mens-shorts), the Men's Nomader Shorts - 8" or the Men's Quandary Shorts - 8".
My "go to" Fishing & Hiking Short
This short fits true to size and I really enjoy the flexible straps in the waist. It's quick drying, light weight, and the pockets provide ample room for gear while fishing or hiking. I own the previous version of this short and they remain my "go to" fishing and hiking shorts.
I'm a big fan of Patagonia. This product meets a good bit of what is needed in a great product, with one major flaw. If a shirt is not tucked in, the elastic stretch waist band rubs you the wrong way, it needs a material cover to encase it. I hope the future version would account for this.
We're sorry to hear about this design flaw you noticed with our Men's Swiftcurrent Wet Wade Wading Shorts. We went ahead and reached out to you via email to offer some help with your return. We also passed your thoughts along to our Design Team. Thank you so much for your feedback.
I'm a large man around ~250Lbs. The shorts ride slightly lower than I expected them to and this causes a few cascading issues. For example, while walking, the crotch settles down to a position that affects my stride unless I either wear a belt with them or frequently pull them back up to where they should stay. This happens whenever I have my ... Read Morephone, wallet, and keys in my pockets. Issue #2 is that the crotch is almost completely unyielding to the point that I feel like I'm going to break through the material anytime I need to crouch, squat, etc. So far the shorts have endured, but I'm considering exchanging them for a size up before something terrible happens.
I got 2 pairs of these shorts for this summer and find them to be extremely comfortable. I wore them to the river last weekend to walk my dogs and of course got splashed. Dried quickly in a very moderate temperature. Haven't fished in them yet, but as soon as the weather warms a bit and I can wet wade I'll definitely be wearing them.
I bought a medium because of what I saw the model wearing. However, the shorts a little tight and I hope they do not shrink. I maybe should have bought a large.
Hey John, thank you for leaving us a review. So long as the shorts are still in new condition, you're welcome to exchange them out for a bigger size. To begin that process click [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
