Functional simplicity at its finest: Patagonia took their stripped-down, travel-savvy boardshorts and made them from superlight 100% recycled polyester with 2-way mechanical stretch, a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 50+ UPF sun protection. Fair Trade Certified™ sewing.
With a no-inseam design, the stripped-down, travel-savvy Light & Variable® Boardshorts provide chafe-free performance in the water and take up barely any space in a bag. Offering the best in functional simplicity with a trim silhouette and sleek, low-drag waistband, they’re 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 flat-lying fly has a ladderlock drawstring closure, and the pared-down back pocket is 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.
