Additional Information

We took two Patagonia® classics—our Stand Up Shorts® and Wavefarer® Board Shorts—and fused them together. These shorts feature the classic Stand Up Shorts silhouette and styling, but they’re built out of our durable Wavefarer Board Shorts quick-drying nylon (38% recycled) fabric, with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

It’s like a double classic combo—animal style. The new Wavefarer® Stand Up Shorts® are designed for the dedicated surfing life. Built from our light and durable Wavefarer Supplex® nylon (38% recycled) with 50+ UPF sun protection and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, they offer versatility and performance during morning paddle-outs or afternoons spent mowing foam in the shaping bay. With styling inspired by our much-loved Stand Up Shorts, they have a double-fabric seat for abrasion resistance and a flat-lying rubber button fly with bartacked ladderlock drawstring for long-wearing comfort in the water. Loops allow you to add a belt on land; the large topstitched front pockets are self-draining and have reinforced stitching for utility and strength. One of the two large self-draining rear pockets is zippered to keep your essentials secure. Outseam is 18".

Recycled Polyester

In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.

Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.

Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.

Men's Wavefarer® Stand-Up Shorts® - 18" is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but . . . These are great hot weather shorts, my favorites, EXCEPT that the two buttons and waist tie-up present frustrating blockades when you really have to go. : (

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Hot/Humid Weather Kit Awesome super lite weight shorts; super quick dry; durable. BIG BELT Loops:)!!! Don't put anything in the pockets; stuff falls out when active; but big enough. Draw strings bonus when I space the belt...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome True to size. Easy to move around in when surfing or SUP. Look great just to wear out and about as well. Love these shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multipurpose shorts I bought these because I love the regular stand up shorts but wanted something made out of synthetic material that wicks moisture and drys quickly. The wayfarer stand up shorts deliver perfectly. Very happy with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Short, but Not for Bodysurfing Love these shorts. The fit, the features, everything. Then I went bodysurfing and the rear pockets act as little parachutes. While swimming they filled up with water to slow me way down. Once I catch a wave it wasn't as pronounced, but its good that there is a drawstring otherwise they'd end up around my ankles with the force of the water pulling them down via the pockets. So yeah, love them for casual swimming, board surfing, around town, daily wear, but not the ideal bodysurf short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great combo Wavefarer Stand Up = great shorts. Wavefarer fabric is tough enough for climbing and hiking, the stand up pocket setup has always been my favorite, and the drawstring and pocket drainage make it suitable for a little water action. They're more like around town shorts that are water-ready, than water shorts that are around town ready, if that makes sense. Super functional, comfortable, and durable.<br> <br> I don't share other reviewers concerns about the opening of the leg (it's wide enough for active movement), or about the efficacy of button fly (undo two buttons and drop 'em, just like your 501's), or about the button vs drawstring (if you've been in moving water, you know why the drawstring is important). <br> <br> The ONLY gripe I have is that the description talks about a ladderlock drawstring, which I think of as the 4-grommet setup on surf trunks. This isn't that. This is a standard drawstring on the inside of the waistband, though I think it's bartacked so it can't pull through on either side. Totally functional, but not what I'd call a ladderlock closure.<br> <br> Anyway, I hope these shorts stay in production!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all around swim short. I wore these while in Hawaii. I have two pair and these were the only swim trunks I wore the entire trip. I wore them snorkeling, cave swimming, hiking, in the shark cage, and just swimming on the beach. I was impressed with there quick drying and overall fit.
