With inseam-free inner thighs, the travel-savvy Light & Variables™ keep you free of chafe while you strobe through barrels or trim down the line. Like Speedos but without all the bright white upper thigh, their light weight and functional simplicity make them a longtime favorite. Made of durable polyester ripstop with 40-UPF sun protection, they’re fully tuned with a trim silhouette and flat, low-drag waistband. Other features include a no-button, flat-lying fly with drawstring closure, and a back pocket that's self-draining, has an internal key loop and also doubles as a compact stuff pouch. Pocket has a noncorroding plastic zipper, and the turned, bartacked drawstring is durable and adds mobility. Outseam is 18".

bluesign® Approved Fabric

Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.

In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.

Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.

Water Resistant

DWR
 (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice! Great trunks. light, thin and comfortable.... but my only complaint would be that i wish they put the pocket on the side and not the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best water short out there My go to short for anything water related. Minimal cut, one little pocket for a key, nothing else. By far, my favorite short on the market. Dries quick and don't chaff. I lived in these shorts in warmer regions for weeks. Good replacement when running out of underwear although I suggest wearing underwear when you're out in public trying to impress as they are thin and show everything underneath. I'm 6'2, 175lbs, size 32" is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SICK AS FRICK Best trunk's I have owned to date. Dry quickly, good fit for slimmer guy, and so far no rashing. The only edit I would make if I were Patagonia would be to make the draw string out of a rougher material, as it seems to occasionally slip and untie with the standard knot. Not a big problem however with the ends acting as stoppers that prevent pulling through, but something that might bug you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and quick dry Amazingly light and comfortable in and out of the water. Highly recommend these shorts. I have two pair, and prefer to round down sizing slightly (personal preference, I'm 6'2", 165 lbs and wear a 30"). No chaffing issues while surfing, and they dry very quickly once out of water. I use them for yoga as well, and they are great. A minimalist short, if you're looking for lots of pockets, etc. these aren't for you. But if your looking for a streamlined, no nonsense boardy not covered in logos and graphics, you'll love them.
