The water might have cooled off a bit, but the Sierra sun is shining and there’s no one around but your best friends and your backpacks. When you find that amazing pool in the river—the one with the perfect boulders for backflips—toss off your shoes, throw on Baggies™ Longs and plunge in. Made from durable, quick-drying SUPPLEX™ 100 % recycled nylon (for less impact on their planet) with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, they’re a Patagonia classic with a decidedly casual fit. Details include an elasticized waistband with internal drawstring, polyester mesh lining, rear snap pocket and front pockets (with self-draining mesh corners) positioned to reduce drag in the water.

They work hard to produce innovative, high-quality, simple and utile apparel that help explorers and outdoor enthusiasts achieve their dreams.
