New Favorite Daily Driver
These are my new favorite shorts. A bit of a style upgrade to my usual gym shorts (in other words they look better). But once they get a bit ruffed up I see wearing them constantly, including to the gym. The fabric feels great and the elastic waist band doesn't intrude like unforgiving board shorts. The pockets hold a phone, keys, and wallet f... Read Moreor excursions or errands. They are short! Most of my 6'1" height is in my legs, so they hit well above my knees. I've always loved short shorts but my advanced age doesn't make them appropriate in some public situations. But, screw it, I think they're fun and during the hottest days I noticed a lot of guys pulled out the shorties to push up the tan line a few inches.
I love these. Super durable, perfect weight for any amount of activity or just lounging around the house. I bought 4 pairs and wear them 7 days a week. Hight recommended! Patagonia, if you are reading this PLEASE make the medium with a lil more room in the butt next year. As an avid cyclist and skier, I cant be the only one with a bubble butt. Ju... Read Morest gimme a little more room in the trunk!
These are excellent lightweight shorts that work for almost anything: the gym, running, swimming, etc. They do not have a liner, which is a huge plus for me, and why I chose these over the baggies. The only drawbacks are: they are definitely short. I was not used wearing shorts that far above the knee. 2nd- Ive found that they take longer to dry t... Read Morehan I expected. But overall these are really great and versatile shorts. I wear them all the time!
Cool shorts, but unsure how to use them
These shorts look like swimsuit, but dont actually are? I dont know if are made to wear with or without underwear. Its tricky cause they don't have the typical mesh inside. But, i like the design and are well made. Runs a bit large on the waist.
Thank you for submitting this review, Mauricio. People use these shorts for a variety of activities, including swimming and surfing, as well as for casual wear out of the water. Some prefer the lack of a liner when using them in surf. Please let us know if we can be of any help in using these shorts, or in finding another option if you prefer.
My favorite summer shorts
For those out there with big thighs but a small waste. These are the perfect shorts for you. Go with whatever your waste size is, they do also have a break in period. At first you will think these are too small to wear in public. Wear them around the house for a bit. They have a lot of give. But I will say wash then air dry so that the fit stays th... Read Moree same. Ive been a Patagonia supporter for over a decade!!!
I've got thick thighs and it's always tough for me to find shorts that fit and are comfortable. I bought a pair of these about 3 months ago, and I love them and wear them so much that I recently bought 2 more. These shorts are great for everything! I wear them while biking and running, exercising, around the house, and going out to run e... Read Morerrands. I've even gone swimming in these shorts and they're perfect. HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend!!!
Almost Perfect Short
Love this short; its like a better version of the baggies and would (for me) be perfect with two, minor modifications. One would be to add a liner, and the second would be to make the back pocket a zip pocket. With those two mods, I could use this short for more than just casual wear and actually put it to use for swimming and running. That being s...

Drawstring Issues - First Wash
I got the Rincon Hunt Micro shorts and I liked the style and how they fit, but the issue was with the drawstring around the waist. After the first wash, the string was out of the shorts. For the price, the quality wasn't there. Bummer.
Hi Britt, thank you for submitting this review; we'll share this feedback with our product team. We're sorry that drawstring came out in the wash. If it turns out to be a deal breaker, please remember you are always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) them.
The perfect shorts
I tried baggies, but returned as they have no stretch/give. These, on the other hand, do just that, are quick dry, have pockets, and are generally perfect for gentlemen like myself who happen to have beefy thighs. I have a terrible time finding shorts that fit but these are perfect so i picked up a second pair. Thanks Patagonia!
I was looking for all-around shorts for Running, Pilates, Tennis, and Swimming in the hot and humid southeastern US climate. These shorts are the best I've found. They're typically not soaked in sweat after a 5 mile run in 95 degree heat with 95 degree humidity. The only reason they're not perfect for running and pilates is that they... Read More have a snap pocket on the rear right butt cheek. Runners prefer a rear center pocket for key storage, and Pilates shorts are better if they don't have snaps on the butt that you can feel while you're lying on a reformer. Maybe one short can't do everything perfectly, but maybe one could... I typically do 1-3 different workouts/day and the laundry piles up.
Superb and quality form and function
Really thoughtful stitching on someone 5'6" and 145 pounds. Expect to use these for the gym's hot tub and sauna as well as jumping into the ocean or spending time at the pool. I read reviews that people would even bring it while kayaking so I'm stoked to wear it and feel comfortable!
Doesn't Meet Durability Expectations
I was hoping these would be a replacement for my baggies, without the liner. However, after less than a month of wear, two pairs out of three I bought have developed holes and tears from what I consider normal activities to wear baggies during (hiking, kayaking, surfing). One pair I've already returned to REI, and the second pair looks like it... Read More might be going back there or to Patagonia for a repair. I love the shorts, but if they're going to need repairs every month of wear then they're going to spend more time in the mail than in my closet. The third pair I haven't even worn yet, but I'm expecting them to follow suit.
Hey Matt, thank you for the feedback on our Hydropeak Volley Shorts. We're sorry to hear that they're not living up to the anticipated durability level. Unfortunately, we do not offer repairs on "next to skin" items such as boardshorts or underwear, but we'd be happy to evaluate them under our warranty. You can either go in store to do this or you're welcome to [send them in](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) as well. Once they've been evaluated, you'll either receive credit back to the original payment method or merchandise credit to spend as you wish.
Light & Cool
I purchased these shorts for my husband who is around 165 pounds and around 6'1 in height. He is a thinner frame and the medium fit perfect. No sliding down but not too tight. He has literally not taken them off since giving him these for Father's Day. He has now asked for another pair. He says they are cool and very light. He is wearing... Read More them for casual wear and was happy to find they did not have the liner inside. He claims the liners are sometimes itchy and hot. Great job Patagonia...and I love the different patterns.
The shorts fit great. I bought them for my honeymoon in Hawaii. I new I was going to get by either rain or jumping in the ocean. They worked well everywhere I went and were so versatile. The only improvement I would make is the draw string material started to deform a little bit after a few wears but is still holding for now.
Great fitting trunks!
These are some great trunks and as usual a home run from Patagonia. I have quite a few different styles of shorts from Patagonia and these are hands down the most comfortable so far. The 4 way stretch is excellent in letting you remain flexible and unhindered during activities. They quick dry is a nice touch as well and the shorts are very light ... Read Moreweight. Pockets are deep but not like baggies where they fall out of the bottom, rear pocket is Velcro with a key loop as well. Anything from casual wear, lake/beach day, fishing or surfing or just tossing water balloons in the yard with the kids these are awesome shorts. I have a feeling these will be very popular. I got the floral print and couldnt be happier with the colors.
