Men's Fit Guide
Though each Patagonia® product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, we can generalize our fit descriptions in four ways:
Formfitting: Conforms to the body’s contours.
Slim Fit: Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.
Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body.
Functional simplicity at its finest: We took our most stripped-down, travel-savvy board shorts and updated them with superlight, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester; the fabric has 2-way stretch and 50+ UPF sun protection. Fair Trade Certified™ sewing. With an inseam-free design, the stripped-down, travel-savvy Light & Variable® Board Shorts keep you free of chafe while you thread through barrels or trim down the line. Something like Speedos but without all the bright-white upper thigh, their light weight and functional simplicity make them a longtime Patagonia favorite. Now made from superlight, fast-drying 100% recycled polyester with 2-way mechanical stretch, a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 50+ UPF sun protection, the hydrodynamic design has a trim silhouette and sleek low-drag waistband. Other features include a flat-lying fly with ladderlock drawstring closure, and a pared-down back pocket that's self-draining, has an internal key loop and doubles as a compact stuff pouch. The pocket has a corrosion-proof plastic zipper, and the side seams have small notches for increased freedom of motion. Outseam is 18". Fair Trade Certified™ sewing.
