Great Boardshorts!
Needed to update some swimwear and these shorts were the answer. I'm not the tallest so going with the 'minimalist' version and shaving 2" of the legnth was perfect for me (they still come close to my knees). Fit was perfect in the waist so definitely order your proper waist size. Big pro was how fast they dry. Being that I tend to wear my clothes out, I'm definitely going to get another pair and probably not have to update my swimwear for several years. Altrec delived on time and as advertised. Well done.

Awesome Shorts!
Theses shorts are just awesome! They are extremely comfortable and the quality of materials are top of the line! Took them out to the lake already and they are some of the quickest drying shorts I have ever owned.

Patagonia Board Shorts
Wore them swimming on my recent trip to the Philippines and I have to say that they did the job. They're light and fast drying. I'm short (5 ft 7 in), so the length is perfect...they end right below my knees. I like the small zipper pocket below the waist...good for storing your keys. Definitely worth buying.

Patagonia Men's Minimalist Board Shorts
I am in the YMCA pool 3-4 times a week and I like the drying features of the 100% nylon. The midsized length is perfect for my size (5'9") and better looking that the below knee typical board shorts. They are cfortable and I like the modern "Moorish Tyles" pattern I chose. I always have good luck with Patagonia products
