Don't Over Think the Colors
Love these board shorts, but you guys need to have a core set of colors that you offer year in and year out ( and not variations on a color i.e Guard Red - that should be a standard offering). It's very frustrating when you're looking to replace your shorts and all the colors have changed and frankly it seems each year get less and less a... Read Moreppealing. (BTW the standard offering applies to solid colors only. Think about it.... it will make everyones life much easier and less stressful....
I live in PA and we usually have a wide range of climates yearly.I have a few different pieces of clothing from patagonia for different purposes and weather conditions e.g ( dirt roamer jacket for mtb, better sweater for hiking in cold etc.In all honesty I only surfed in them once , but i lived in them for a week ,which included surf fishing daily ... Read Moreand swimming everyday. The quality is absolutely what I expected. I couldnt believe how actually quick drying they were and fit was perfect. I wouldnt say the fit was slim but maybe athletic. Also im big on pocket functionality. I have an Iphone11 w an otter box and in water I have a waterwallet containing my id and credit card. Zipped up w ease. Obviously youre not gonna need your phone in the water but wearing them on the beach, boardwalk or in a kayak it should fit fine. Also the waistband ties up nice and strong. Listen I just want to give an honest review of a great product, this checks all the boxes. So hurry up summer is almost over here on the east coast grab a pair and live the life you love.
These run small and the fit is tight overall, and actually restrictive in the thighs. For size 31" waist the drawstring might allow for that with stretch, but they would seem to fit correctly at 30", roughly 1" smaller than advertised in the waist. I'll need to try a larger size to see if it can be comfortable.
Thank you for writing this review Neil! We are truly sorry to hear about the fit and sizing issues you encountered with these boardshorts. If you find that the larger size does not work out, we would recommend checking out our [Men's Wavefarer Boardshorts](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-wavefarer-boardshorts-19-inch/86623.html?dwvar_86623_color=FSSI&cgid=root) as they offer a slightly larger thigh fit.
Good overall board shorts
I live in hawaii and paddle outrigger canoes almost daily, either OC1 or OC6, works well and fits well in water. Good for surfing and swimming as well. General at home Im just in board shorts all day and night and these fit well and have good breathability and keep me cool on hot days.
Epic with the side pockets
These are a home-run. I would not buy them before because they only had butt pockets which are useless for anyone actually surfing. Cannot put wax or keys in them when surfing and cant put a phone in the pocket when you are. With a side pocket these might be Patagonia's best board shorts for surfing. thin and quick drying, but tough. Thanks fo... Read Morer the Side Pockets!
