With out a doubt, these are the "go to" short for beating around in the summer if you're near water (or not). Patagonia used to tout these as "put them on in the spring, and you don't need to take them off until the fall, literally". While that sounds disgusting, as long as there's a shower involved occasionally, it's not too far from the truth (just wear them in the shower too so they get washed as well). While I have had a pair or 2 of these handy for at least 20 years now, the only thing I've noticed about them you should be aware of before getting them for the first time is that the mobility is just slightly limited when scrambling around, and if you're rowing a boat in them, watch out for catching the oar handles in the pockets and ripping them, but I won't drop a star because of that simply because they are one of my favorite shorts out there.
I'm a husky fella (5'9" 225lbs) and these are the best fitting/cut swim trunks I've ever come across. The lemon lime trunks I originally got (large) still look the same as the day I got them. I recently picked up a another pair, but I decided to go down a size. The mediums are a tad too small, and the larges a tad too big.
I've worn them for a week straight while camping/hiking and didn't have a single problem. No chafing, no riding up or falling down. Just comfort.
I sported these on a 33-day canoe trip this past summer, with rugged conditions and the did an amazing job. They would dry quickly, were a tough material, didn't chafe and had a great retro look to them. They are a little short, but they are better to walk in because of that. Highly recommend.
I wear these everywhere. In the summer I'll wear these wading in the river while fishing. I've taken them on the AT and they held up well. They're super comfortable and fit well. I wear a 38 and the L was a bit tight on me, I recommend a XL for that waist size.
I got them on sale so it was a complete no-brainer but seriously, if you're considering at all, get them. I don't need to go into details because these are so solid they don't matter. The comfort, look, and durability are simply things that you want and these will give you all three.
I had a pair off these years ago. Of course they dont make them the same now, different material. There great and all that but I have an issue with their sizing. I ware a 38 and they say a 38 is XL so thats what I got and their tooooo big. Large would of been just fine. Like all Patagonia stuff its only worth buying on sale.
