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 Stretch Wavefarer® Boardshorts - 21" is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from A movable feast! The stretch fabric is comfy in the water or out, moving with me in every direction, even doubling as a workout short. My only gripe is the suppleness of the fabric makes the portion over the button fly protrude in a somewhat eye-catching manner. If it really needs an "open-able" fly I suggest going back to good ol' hook and loop closure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Snugger than the Original Wavefarer I'm a board short junkie, have many "standard" patterned Wavefarer's and decided to grab a solid color. Did not realize I was ordering the stretch version, fit is much tighter/narrower through the legs, which offers significantly less water drag. So for my lap pool routine outstandingly great, no more water anchor, but just FYI there certainly is a snugness to them in the legs and your, well you know, privates...All around like them a lot, have not surfed with them yet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Perfect but not perfect Used these for about 10 days in the water last summer, then put two more weeks on them in Nicaragua before the seam along the back of the shorts quickly began to fall apart, opening an uninvited and inappropriate gap. Luckily I saw it when drying out the shorts and sew the panels back together on the run with a thick white thread and was ok for the rest of the trip. Shorts are normal fitting and unconstricting (I am relatively skinny), so I feel there is a QC or material issue (or bad luck) here in my case. Have had other Patagonia boardshorts and never run into this kind of problem. Otherwise shorts are quick-drying, featherlight (so perhaps not as bulletproof as more traditional materials), tend to stain a bit but nothing too bad, have just enough stretch and look good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good board shorts I've been hesitant to buy 'board shorts' as I never really cared for the drawstring closure in the front, but after trying a bunch of swimwear options, I actually liked these the best. The fit is great, it's awesome Patagonia offers them in a 35-inch waist. I feel like the fabric is a really nice weight, not too thick, and not too thin. The only thing I'll mention is that they lycra stretch part of the fabric makes them take longer to dry completely, especially if you're in a humid environment. My recommendations for improvement would be to add another zip pocket on the back, and it would be nice to see the same short in a 23" length for a little more coverage. Lastly, as another reviewer mentioned, the stitching seems a little weak, i.e. low stitch-counts, relative to other Patagonia products. But overall still a good swim trunk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not like most of your products. I've been and will remain a dedicated customer, for years I've enjoyed the wavefarer board shorts in length 21". I own 3 pairs and wear them like a second skin for a third of every year, to say I am impressed with the quality is an understatement. I noticed that you guys don't make that style anymore and sadly I've had to part with a pair of my beloved boardies due to wearing the heck out of them. So I gave the "new & improved " stretch wavefarers a try and was terribly disappointed. I've ripped them over 6 times in three months, the seams aren't stitched well and the fabric tears easily? I'm a big guy, you guys are one of the only companies that make clothes that fit my gorilla frame. And since your stuff lasts so long and you stand for purpose through transparency I am only hoping you will at some point bring back the tried and true original that won me over in the first place. Thank you for your time and for building such great stuff, most of the time. Cheers, Matt Kern

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect board shorts I've had two pairs of these board shorts for over two years now, and feel like I've worn them long enough to provide a review. They are extremely comfortable immediately and there are no uncomfortable seams or fit issues to cause chafing or discomfort. I like the button fly and the fact that the lace is permanently attached to the shorts. Enough stretch to be used for working out and yoga, in addition to beach/pool wear. They are light weight, dry quickly and fit great, not too long or too loose. I'm 6'2" and the size 33 hits right above my knee. On a recent trip to the beach I hardly took them off and I was always perfectly comfortable. Perfect board shorts.
