    Details

    You may not wear anything else this summer.

    Stuff your towel and an exceptionally bad book in your backpack and head to the beach. Or go for a run. Or get in a quick seaside free-climbing session. Or, actually, do just about anything else you can think of in the Patagonia Women's Baggies Board Shorts. The Baggies have been around for as long as Patagonia has, and with the all-purpose function of a DWR-coated nylon, elastic drawstring waist, and mesh hand pockets, they don't show any signs that they'll be going away any time soon.

    • Durable, comfortable, and versatile summer favorite
    • Nylon with DWR-coating keeps up with adventures
    • Adjustable drawstring provides just the right fit

    Just throwing this out there... Gunna go right ahead and move into these shorts for the summer. Just joined the baggies club and I plan to renew my membership in the future :)

    Patagonia Baggies

      If you have never owned a pair of these shorts, you are missing out. I have tried the barely baggies out the past few years, but these ones are still my classic go-to for summer adventures. They are lightweight, dry quick, and can be used for a variety of activities. I would kayak, SUP, raft, hike, or bike around town in these. They are higher waisted, and a baggier fit for sure, which is what I like about them... I don't like to be active in tiny shorts. If you want a similar quick-dry board short with a mid-rise and shorter cut, try the barely baggies, they are great too!

      Classic

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 130lbs

      You just can't go wrong with a pair of baggies. Super versatile - they can be worn athletically and also as a board short as they dry so fast. Such a timeless piece!

      Runs Lg

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Small

      I like everything about these shorts but I had to return them for a smaller size because as the name implies, they are baggy! If it weren't for the bagginess in the back and the flaring at the sides I would've been fine with the smalls... But I went for xs instead.

      Good but Poofy

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'3"
      • Weight: 130lbs

      I do like these, but now that I have my own pair, I am a little surprised at how much folks rave about them. I found the fit to be a little poofy in the front on me, and the fabric was more stiff than I would prefer...but I kept them because they dry quickly, which I needed for some tropical hiking/swimming adventures.

      They can do anything.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      • Weight: 160lbs

      I bought these shorts after reading many reviews as well as following a few people on Instagram who hiked the entire AT in a single pair of Patagonia Baggies. As a 5'9" woman with big thighs and quads, I am constantly looking for shorts that fit well and don't look or feel too tight. These were the ticket - I bought a size medium - and I would actually recommend them to women of all shapes and sizes. They are tight to get over my butt, but once they are, they fit super well and are already my favorite pair of shorts. I have worn them mountain biking (before I got some MTB shorts), hiking, swimming, camping, to bum around town, etc. and I LOVE them. They seem sturdy, they dry out really fast, and they are incredibly comfortable! I only wish they had a little zip pocket - but otherwise, best pair of shorts I own.

      Just great shorts

      My old baggies finally died after 10+ years. I had to get more. No other shorts could replace these.

      Not my favorite

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 145lbs

      I loooove Patagonia but I feel like their sizing is hit or miss with my body size. I am 5'10", 145 lb, long legs/arms, average torso (usual sizes: Carhartt 4 long, Prana 4, American Eagle 2/4, Patagonia 6). I ordered these in M and while the waist was comfortably snug, they were super weird on my legs. Billowy and just not cut for me - not sure if my legs were too skinny (they aren't that small...?) or what but I think I will try the Barely Baggies because I really wanted these to work.

      Love these shorts!

      I am a huge fan of the Patagonia baggies. I had been buying the barely baggies for a while, but I wanted something with a little more modest inseam. They're comfortable, lightweight, and versatile. I love them for kayaking and traveling.

      Awesome hiking shorts

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I already have three pairs and still want more. I wear these in so many different situations - soccer practice, the beach, long hikes, and everywhere in between! Most recently I was hiking The Subway in Zion and we were in and out of the water all day; these shorts dried so quickly and kept me feeling comfortable all day. I wear the waist a little higher than I do in other athletic shorts and I feel like that makes the fit really work for me. Would absolutely recommend baggies

      They really do mean baggie.

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'5"
      • Weight: 139lbs

      I bought these and returned them immediately. I ordered a small. They were really baggie through the legs and fit weird through the croch. The material was a little rough/stiff and caused the shorts to ride up my thighs. The print was super cute.

      So versatile

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 130lbs

      I love to wear these shorts on days when I plan on playing in the woods with some water mixed in. They dry so fast and stay comfortable after many wears. The swishy sound the shorts make when you walk might wear on some people, but I didn't notice. Perfect summer-round shorts.

      Awesome

      Great for pretty much anything. Casual and comfy! The best summer shorts yet. I love the fun patterns too.

      These shorts are the best!

      I absolutely love these shorts. Super comfortable and perfect for just about anything. Since I've gotten them I've worn them almost every day. I usually wear a small and they are pretty true to size.

      These are the freakin' best

      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'6"
      • Weight: 145lbs

      I own three pairs of shorts- total. Two of them are baggies. They are a staple item and I can't imagine going through a summer without them. I'm pretty much always a medium in Patagonia and every other brand, and these ran true to size- they hug my waste a bit if I skip my runs for too long, but still fit great.

      Baggies are the best!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      These shorts rock! I wore them for the first time yesterday on a river float and they were great! They fit true to size, have an elastic waist band and draw-string, have pockets, the DWR coating kept them mostly dry, and when they did get wet they dried super quickly!

      I don't mean to "bag" on the baggies...

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 128lbs

      Rookie mistake, I ordered the "baggies" instead of the "barely baggies". The difference? A very noticeable 2.5" inseam. I can't bag on the shorts though, because I simply rolled the waist up twice and went on ahead with my bad self in the carve coral. (I doubt anyone notices) The coral color is killer and made even my patsy pre-summer legs look at least partially ready to hit the beach. Plus the fabric is quick-dry making it the perfect short to throw over a swimsuit without the awkward "wet pants"....

      Durable and have pockets!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small

      I ordered two pairs of these, one in the darker blue and one in the coral. I loved the blue. The coral shorts were a bit see through... so I decided to return them for that reason. I also didn't fit in the size small I initially ordered and got a medium in the darker blue. The small was too tight around my hips and butt. I would not have been able to utilize the pockets. They feel durable and I'm happy with my purchase.
