Fair Trade Certified™ sewing.

They’re like a double classic combo—animal style. The Wavefarer® Stand Up Shorts® are built from our light and durable Wavefarer nylon (38% recycled) with 50+ UPF sun protection and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, offering versatile performance through morning paddle-outs or afternoons spent mowing foam in the shaping bay. With styling inspired by our much-loved Stand Ups, they have a doubled-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 20". Fair Trade Certified™ sewing.

Recycled Nylon

Although we’ve been using recycled polyester in our garments for 20 years, for some reason locked deep in polymer chemistry, nylon is more difficult to recycle than polyester. After years of research, development, and testing, we’re finally finding some recycled nylon fibers that are suitable for apparel.

Some of the recycled nylon we use comes from post-industrial waste fiber, yarn collected from a spinning factory, and waste from the weaving mills that can be processed into reusable nylon fiber.

We’re diligently searching for a success story with recycled nylon. The challenge lies ahead of us, and we’re committed to discovering the best methods to recycle nylon fiber, but it appears this evolution will take many years.

Men's Wavefarer® Stand Up Shorts® - 20" is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Way too small Every pair of pants I own is a 34" and almost all of them are loose on me. These (size 34") were snug at the waist and way too tight at the seat (there was not enough room for my butt). I'd like to try another pair but I don't trust the sizing

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little too tight These shorts seem like super hearty work shorts, but they were just too tight in the waist. I would recommend going one inch larger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great blend of style and function I love the fit, big pockets, and the classic fabric. These are a great everyday short for summer action - great for active wear, river action, or bike rides to the bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wavefarer Pants These shorts are made from great material. The fit is comfortable and true to size. I use them for rock climbing, paddle sports, and going out on the town. So far they've been perfect for every occasion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid go to shorts i bought a pair forge grey about a year ago. they are mo go to short/trunks. i got another pair about a week ago in the woodland camo. the new ones seem to be a heavier fabric then the pair from last year. not sure if that is a good thing (more sturdy) or a bad thing (longer dry time)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy them in bulk I am a true 31 waist. 30's are too tight while 32's slide over my butt. These fit great with enough room for a cycling thigh. I've done everything from running to remodeling in them. I'll buy two more to go with the two I already have. Saying goodbye to all the misc shorts I currently own will be easy. I hope this design will get extended into full length pants. I don't need no stretch in my britches. Nice job and love the camo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect beach/hike shorts I currently live in Hong Kong where the top two outdoor activities are hiking and beach. I have been searching for a pair of shorts that are light, fit well and work well for a long hot hike or the beach. The wavefarer material is awesome and these shorts are just right. I'm not the usual Patagonia size, so I went a size up for full comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts ever Loaded with features without feeling loaded. I'll be buying another pair only because when I really love something that really works, it becomes unavailable.
