These are the best looking boardies I have bought in a while. I hope Patagonia continues to make them. I like the side tie, it doesn't leave a big lump under my tank top. These also stay in place very well for a short boardie. The only problem I see is that they stretch a little when wet. I bought a size 10 & a size 8 would have been better when wet. But, they are very comfortable when dry.

These shorts are great for canoeing/kayaking. Very comfortable, don't ride up. They sit at the hips and the fit is great, although I would order a size up. I usually wear a size 6 and while the 6 fit, it was very tight. Material dries very quickly.

Awesome Board Shorties!
I ordered these board shorts to go with two different bikini tops, both different textures and colors... and these shorts work perfectly with the multi-color design! The fit is great, not too short for this 30+ year old mom with a little extra in the back. AND the quality is excellent of course as always with Patagonia! The material is super comfortable and not stretchy like others that tend to sag after wear. I totally recommend these!

I was looking for a board short that would provide enough coverage so I wouldn't have to worry about "wardrobe malfunctions" while being active, yet still be small enough to get some sun on my Pacific Northwest skin during the short summer. These shorts reach that goal, have a perfect fit, and look good all at the same time.

Well, they've done it again. Another product from Patagonia that I am very pleased with. I love my new Patagonia Shortie Boardie swim shorts. They're a good length, not too short, not too long, and super cute. They seem to be made of great quality, as are all of Patagonia's products that I have owned. I will be wearing these for years to come!
