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.
For the runner who needs a fully featured and versatile running short, the Nine Trails Shorts are made of a lightweight recycled polyester/spandex blend with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and a supportive, odor-resistant, moisture-wicking boxer-brief liner for additional chafe protection. Details include a drawcord, a rear zippered pocket and zippered front pockets. When your daily ritual centers around covering ground, our time-honored Nine Trails Shorts enable your great escape. These versatile, fully featured, tough yet breathable running shorts use a supportive and wicking polyester/spandex boxer-brief liner (with Polygiene® permanent odor control) for additional chafe protection, complementing the main body’s hearty yet lightweight blend of 75-denier 91% recycled polyester/9% spandex fabric with 4-way stretch and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. All three pockets (two front, one back right) close with zippers, and a drawcord at the waist fine-tunes the fit. Inseam is 8" with 2" side notches. Reflective logos on front and back.
