Ws Skyline Traveler Shorts - 8

May 15, 2021

Not ninja wear

I got a kick out of the material used for these shorts for some reason it seems crinkly and noisy when rubbed together. I liked the look and length, but they were a bit small. If you are not sneaking up on anyone or thing, they're probably nice for easy hikes. (not bird watching)

Extremely small; order one size larger

I ordered both this pair of shorts as well as the Quandry shorts in size 8. The traveler style fits like a slim size 6, so Ive exchanged them for a size 10, and they are still a bit tight. The size 8 in the Quandry size 8 is quite loose.

Perfect shorts for golf

I bought this for golf wear and I love it. I was worried if 8" going to be too long for shorts but for my height, it's perfect length and fit for me.

Great shorts

I love these shorts so much I bought 3 different colors. Now I hope they bring out new colors. I really like the length and a bit higher waist. They are great to hike in and dress up with a dressier top.

Great shorts!

I love these shorts! I'm about to order my 3rd pair. They are very comfortable, a good length (which can easily be shortened with one turn that stays), and stay looking good over multiple days of wear. I wash in warm water and hang to dry - they fit just as well as when they were new, and don't wrinkle. Dry quickly too.

Great fit

Love the fit and design. Good pockets and cut. I am 57 and 135-140 lbs. rectangle shape. Most shorts now are sooo wide, these are not. Fabric is odd, yet....Seems super durable. They do swish noisily. But are comfortable. And seems wrinkle-ly after washing. Easily avoided though. I cannot find another short to compare. So I am in!

extremely comfortable

These shorts are very comfortable. I like the light weight fabric. The snap closure is practical. The style can be casual or even some what dressy. I highly recommend this product.

Perfect pair of shorts

These are incredibly comfortable shorts that do it all. They can take a beating on the farm or look nice enough to wear traveling. I love that they are light weight and breathable. Oh, and last but not least, they are also very flattering!

Beautiful Material

This is my first purchase of Patagonia shorts, wont t be my last. They fit perfectly, so comfortable to wear, material is soft, smooth, and moves with you. Both thumbs up!

Loud difficult fabric

I was looking for a style similar to my husband's wavefarer shorts, which is a softer fabric, and a jean cut style easy for beach to hike to dinner. These shorts are an awful fabric, loud to walk in and plasticky. They are going back.

skyline traveler shorts

These shorts fit well, wear well and are comfortable. Stretch and move with you, but don't stretch out.

Form AND function!

These shorts are so comfortable! Just the right amount of stretchy material that makes the shorts move with you during activities. So comfortable I can even golf in these. The length Is perfect - transitions from daytime activities to dinner at a restaurant without needing to change. Hidden drawstring is also versatile without the need of a belt. I... Read Moret was a great purchase. Wish there were more colors available at my size.

Badly cut, cheaply made (in China).

Horrible cut, straight leg flares at thigh, belt loops and zipper with button protrude out over the belly, fels like grandma shorts and they are heavy. Not for hiking. Thick 'plasticky' material. Not ripstop derivative. Odor trapping.

Stretchy shorts

Perfect for hiking, all- around General use

Love the fabric & fit

I have a couple pair of the Skyline Traveler pants, which wash up well and dry quickly even when washing by hand and line drying. So although I haven’t worn these shorts, I have a lot of confidence and hat they will was and wear well. And since they are shorts, there’s none of the problems I had with even the 6s pants being quite a bit too long. I’... Read Morem 5’2” 120lbs and these hit about 3 inches above the knee, a length I prefer. I have fairly muscular thighs and these are neither too tight nor too loose. In short, they’re perfect! So much so that I bought 2 pairs:

Too small

I'm a 4 in most companies pants, often a 6 in Patagonia pants. These fit me like they fit the model, too tight in the butt and legs. The fabric seemed nice and I liked the length, wish they had fit better. I think a size larger would have been too big in the waist.

Love Patagonia.. I have their jackets but not pants. These shorts are what I was looking for.. comfortable, lightweight. I’m 5’3” 138 and usually an 8 or 28 and this size 8 was true fit for me.

Ordered to pair of shorts

Ordered to pair of shorts the same style and size but one pair fit better than the other. Not same fit:(

Best shorts ever

These shorts are the perfect length and weight and can be dressed up or down. They are very flattering and slimming. I did have to order a full size larger than I typically wear in Patagonia bottoms.

Best shorts ever

Loved ‘em. Perfect pockets, perfect fit, perfect length, perfect fabric. Go Patagonia

Thank you designers! The fit is perfect for me; 110 pounds, 5'5", straight and slim. I bought a pair for hiking, but I'm finding they are too nice looking to get sap on.....they are my "dress shorts". I like how you can change the length by folding up the hem once or twice; it stays put and isn't bulky. I bough 2 more ... Read Morepairs, and would really like capri pants with the same fit, please :-) The Patagonia pant with a similar fit is the quandary pant (fabric was changed last year; I have the earlier version); I wear a size 2 in the pant, and a 4 in the shorts.

‘Back to the Future’ !

Like the new fabric and style. I purchased two pair. The fit reminds me of how Patagonia previously sized shorts. I have a very old pair that has traveled the globe with me and still works. Love the new ones but could use a style with more pockets for hiking. My size is usually a four or six and in this style; I wear a six.

Sizing on the larger side

The features are wonderful for an extremely hot and humid tropical weather. They also dried fast after washed by hand. I purchased a size 10 based on the website's size chart and slim fit description. The shorts actually felt like a relaxed fit than a slim fit. Luckily, the drawcord helped keep my shorts at my waist even though there was gathe... Read Morered excess fabric. Unfortunately, I did not have time to exchange for a smaller size before the trip which is my fault. But I am pleased with the performance of the shorts.

Way too small

I'm 5'0" and 115 lbs. I almost always wear a Patagonia XS or a size 4 in shorts. I ordered a size 4 and they are WAY too small. It almost seems like the tag is wrong. I don't even think I could fit into a size 6, which would be really, really odd for me. Otherwise, the shorts are nice and seem to be a great fabric for traveling.... Read More

Great Shorts!

I was looking for a pair of shorts that were long enough for me to wear to work in the office, but a material that I could use for outdoor activities. These shorts are perfect. They are very comfortable, stretchy enough to move around and also flattering.

Too small

I wear a size 8 normally so I got a size 10 Incase only tiny people can fit Patagonia. It’s true only tiny people can fit Patagonia. They were too small
