loving these shorts
These are my "go to" shorts in warmer weather. Very lightweight, they look good weather I am hiking or running out to the store or dinner. Durable and very comfortable. Built in belt is a plus. I highly recommend.

Great, like the Guidewater Pants...
I bought the pants a month ago and like them so much I decided to get me some of them short pants just like them. Very comfortable, light, nice length. Can't wait to fish in 'em.

Great shorts
Another outstanding patagonia item. Excellent fabric and construction, very tough and durable. These run a little snug so you may want to try one size larger if you like a relaxed fit. Highly recommended.
