M's Baggies Lights - Matcha Green
Versatile and multifunctional shorts from Patagonia, designed to be used in and out of the water and made from a recycled polyester ripstop material.
A sleeker version of the original Baggies shorts, but with all the features that earn the Baggies name: Lightweight, fast drying and made of a durable 100% recycled polyester ripstop fabric with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to shed moisture. An elasticised waist with an internal drawstring will keep them in place, with vertical side pockets that have a draining mesh inside to reduce drag in the water (and can be reversed to create a storage pouch when you need to pack light).

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
Patagonia was founded by Yvon Chouinard in 1973, the company's roots are in clothing for rock and alpine climbing, but they now produce a diverse mix of apparel targeted towards skiers, snowboarders, surfers and climbers. Patagonia are a world leader in creating ethical, sustainable clothing.
Recycled Polyester - In 1993, Patagonia adopted fleece into their product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles making them 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. Using recycled polyester lessens dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
