Absolutely love these shorts. Enough elastic to be perfectly comfortable and not slide up or down. Super light weight, love the zippered cargo pocket for my cell phone. Pockets are deep enough that money or things dont fall out when seated. I bought 2 pair of the grey colored shorts and one pair of the kakki. Both are light colored and go well with...

I have a hit/miss relationship with Patagonia and 34 waists. These happened to be a little large, with the added help from the elastic. I still called it true to size, as 34 is the bottom end of the large size spec. Zippered pockets are handy. Love the weight (feather) and comfort (soft) of the material.
These are very lightweight, but well-made shorts. I use them when interpreting birds for the public at a Nat. Wildlife Refuge. They look good, but are tough too. Big belt loops, strong zippers. There is one thing I miss....there was a time when Patagonia bottoms for men had the back pocket on the hip- you could sit down without the big wallet lump ... Read Morescrewing up your posture.

Ms Sandy Cay Shorts - 8
Great, functional shorts. the two zip pockets are key as I use the shorts in the water and can easily lose things if they are not secured. My only ongoing and endless concern with Patagonia shorts and pants is the front and back rise. I've contacted customer service and gotten the lamest of all replies. I am 5'7". My front and back ... Read Morerise is NOT the same as a person 6' tall. Yet all Patagonia shorts and pants have a standard front and back rise for any size person. I beg you to consider not just offering a shorter pant leg but a shorter front and back rise. My short's/pant's crotch from Patagonia sit 4 or more inches below where they should because of this. If I hike them up then they come up to our over my navel and I look like a complete Dork.
Hi Andrew, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're sorry to hear about the trouble you've experienced with our front and back rise. We normally offer a graduated front and back rise that gets longer as the waist size increases. Feel free to [contact us](https://help.patagonia.com/s/#searchterm=contact%20us) if you'd ever like the specific rise measurement for a particular pair of shorts. With that said, we truly appreciate this feedback and we'll pass it along to our design crew!
New go-to shorts for array of uses
I needed to replace a pair of quick drying shorts with a fly that had fallen apart after six years of use. It was another brand I relied on for only shorts. I rely on Patagonia for everything else. I decided to look at Patagonia's offering in shorts for the first time. This pair fit the bill. The sizing was different (I'm usually a Patago... Read Morenia small but took a medium in this piece). I've since bought two more pairs, putting one away. Zippered pockets are great add, since my original shorts made by other brand didn't have them. Only downside in my opinion is not a lot of color options. But the fit, material and design can't be beat. I wish there at had been a built in belt like the more expensive short. At first I thought wearing my leather belt with these shorts would be weird, but it's turned out not to be an issue.
No Back Left Pocket; Cost $5 to Return
They took away the back left pocket that had been on the shorts for years. Had to pay $5 to return given this surprise
We're sorry to hear these didn't work out. Please feel free to [reach out to us](https://www.patagonia.com/customer-service.html) if you have any questions regarding your return.
Great shorts, it's a bummer the sizing is way off
These are great shorts but the sizing is way off. I have 8 pairs of various shorts in size medium from patagonia that fit great. The Sandy Cay shorts mediums are way too big and smalls are too tight in the waist. I wish they would've stuck to their standard sizing on these shorts.
Disappointed with sizing of this garment
After reading many of the reviews on the Sandy Cay Shorts I was convinced they were written by the usual crew of people that simply can't be satisfied and love writing negative stuff. I have a mannequin body and wear medium in everything PATAGONIA,The North Face,Pearl Izumi,etc. so I wasn't going to order these in any other size than med... Read Moreium. Wow,was I mistaken. The length was way too long and the waist was too big as well. After contacting customer service,which was excellent and addressed my needs nicely,they promptly sent out a replacement size small. These shorts are way too tight in the waist and I'm not even convinced the length is right. Own two pairs of smalls and don't think I will be satisfied with this purchase. A FIRST for me in what has been a 20+ years relationship with PATAGONIA.
