Sturdy and fast-drying, the lightweight nylon Patagonia Men's Guidewater II Shorts feature a partial stretch waist for exceptional fit and comfort, a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 50+ UPF sun protection; 10" inseam.
Everything we love about the Guidewater Pants—and less. The shorts version has all the same water-specific features—including a zippered side-leg pocket, mesh drainage on all pockets and a remarkably fast dry-time—that make these the fishing shorts of choice for anglers. And the comfortable fit, zip fly and motion-friendly waist with stretch sections and belt loops make the Guidewater Shorts ideal for pretty much any activity. Which is to say, you may find yourself wearing ’em everywhere—we sure do. Made from lightweight, 3.9-oz woven nylon with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 50+ UPF sun protection. Inseam is 10".

Patagonia Size Chart - Men's
Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions, and are in inches, unless otherwise noted.
* Inseam will vary depending on style; when lengths are offered, "short" is 30, "regular" is 32 and "long" is 33, unless otherwise noted.
DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in their materials supply chain, and to assist with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.
In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.
Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.
