You can throw some serious bushwacking, grovely offwidths and miscalculated stream crossings at these shorts, and they’ll still look unfazed back at the pub. Lightweight Quandary Shorts have a fabric blend of quick-drying stretch-woven nylon and spandex that takes hard use and bounces back for more. Made for the kinetics of climbing and backpacking, the versatile fabric stretches, resists moisture with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and provides 40-UPF sun protection. The curved waistband provides a contoured fit at the hips to keep your shorts from migrating downward when you’re highstepping upward, and a gusseted crotch lets your legs move without restraint. Pockets: two in front, two in back, a stealthy coin pocket and a zippered right-thigh pocket for security. 10" inseam.

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.

UPF Fabric

Lacking fur, feathers or scales, we humans have to think up clever ways to protect ourselves from the sun. Products with the UPF designation provide built-in sun protection that won’t wear off.

To achieve sun protection, Patagonia takes a varied approach, depending on the degree of protection desired and the fabric used. Elements of the strategy can range from yarn selection to fabric construction to the use of special finishes (especially for light colors which generally provide less protection).

Men's Quandary Shorts - 10 In. is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for most experiences The Quandry short is perfect for most everything. The light, technical material laughs at spilled coffee and mud while staying mostly wrinkle free and odorless. My only update would be to add a closure (flap, button, Velcro®) for one of the rear pockets to help secure a passport or wallet when traveling. Because the material is so light and flexible anything put in the front or leg pocket tends to bounce around a bit. Other than that you should add to cart immediately, these are great. I'm 5'7" 165lbs and wear a 33" waist in both the Patagonia jeans and these shorts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Disappointment I like to buy clothes that can serve many purposes, and that way I can buy fewer clothes. I purchased two pairs of these shorts from last year. The were the best shorts ever: light, soft, stretchy, and they looked nice! I use the shorts for everything and anything, including outdoor sports, and casual wear. I was looking forward to stocking up on more of these shorts for this year. Unfortunately, the design of this year's quandary shorts is a giant leap backwards. The clothing designers for some reason decided to eliminate last year's attractive design. These shorts have one use and one use only: they look like ugly hiking shorts, thus eliminating their multi-function value. Plus the slimmer design is less comfortable. I'm returning the two pairs that I purchased. Bummer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shorts I've Ever Owned. These are, hands down, the best shorts I've ever owned. Most comfortable. Extremely durable. Quick drying. Water repellant. Dirt has trouble sticking to them. Pockets positioned just right and deep enough so that stuff doesn't just fall out of them when you're seated. I love them so much that I own four of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer shorts Can't take these shorts off. Light, comfy and surprisingly breathable. I'd take these anywhere - hike, paddle, river, pool, beach, etc. Easily my most versatile garment at the moment. Wearing them to dinner tonight too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most excellent shorts I love the lightweight feel and cut of the shorts. After the first pair I bought the grey and the green. My go to shorts for the summer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts I've owned I have absolutely no complaints about these shorts as I just bought my second pair. They are lightweight, comfortable, not restrictive, and look classy enough to fit any setting. These are shorts for the outdoors or the office and I can't stop wearing them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great shorts bought two pairs for Zion and they have been awesome. We hiked all the core trails aggressively and they felt great the entire time. Even better, I felt fine throwing on a new shirt and heading straight into any of the restaurants in Springdale wearing these. Obviously darker colors hold up better during longer days. Two minor demerits: pockets will hold water, fabric "beads" formed where my hiking fanny pack sits after an aggressive hike to angels landing. Wish these came in dark red, blue, and black. Would buy more.
