Patagonia delivering functional simplicity at its finest: a pared-down, travel-savvy board short made from super light, 100% recycled polyester with 2-way mechanical stretch, a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 50+ UPF sun protection.
The performance focused Light & Variable Boardshorts feature a slimmer profile, minimal drag and highly functional 2-way stretch. Based on Patagonia’s trusty Wavefarer design but with a streamlined waistband and closer-fitting through the thigh, and made of durable and fast-drying 100% recycled polyester with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 50+ UPF sun protection.
The inseam is shifted forward to help eliminate chafing for extended wear; the closure is a flat-lying fly with single rubber button and bartacked ladderlock drawstring for durability. Self-draining pocket on right hip has a corrosion-proof plastic zipper, internal key loop and added zipper pull for ease of use. The pocket also doubles as a self-storage pouch.
