Patagonia Men's River Shorts
Have been looking a long time for a replacement for my previous favorite river shorts. Well these are it, the web waist band is strong and these shorts won't creep down if your pockets are loaded, a major plus for us big boys with beer guts. Fabric is light strong, sheds water, and dries almost instantly, a nother major plus, so you don't get fell clammy when in camp. The lining is very good and dries not quite as fast but much better than anything else I've tried. I bought two more pairs after seeing the first one.

I love these shorts. They are everything I hoped for - comfortable and durable. It was difficult to find a pair of women's shorts with at least a 9" inseam so I took a chance and ordered men's shorts. I am short waisted and they fit me perfectly. I especially like the elastic waist, deep pockets and the option to use a zippered pocket when needed. They will be perfect for my upcoming trip to South America where I will be facing damp, humid conditions and traveling by canoe. The fact that they are quick to dry and offer protection from the sun is an added bonus. Thank you Altrec or offering this product to your customers.

not for just rivers
This is the most comfortable short around; the fit is great and the liner super. I wear them everywhere; not just while paddling or wading rivers. Quality, cut and material are the tops. I especially like the deep pockets and built in belt. Patagonia knows how to make action clothes!

Nice, well made shorts with a clean simple design. The fabric is sturdy, dries quickly and the shorts keep cool. One drawback is that there is no front zipper.

WAY too big!
I had a pair of River Shorts a number of years ago and LOVED them. Purchased these a few weeks ago (in a Medium) and they are WAY too big (10" inseam). They were never like that with previous versions of these shorts. Unfortunately, I have to return them. Be forewarned, these shorts look goofy as they are HUGE!
