Patagonia built the Patch Pocket Wavefarer Boardshorts by taking their classic Wavefarers and adding a right-thigh patch pocket and contrast waistband. Now made with quick-drying recycled nylon fabric that provides 50+ UPF sun protection and has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, they have a natural fit with a slightly trimmer silhouette through the thigh, seat and leg; the three-piece, self-lined waistband contours to the hip.
The inseam is shifted forward to help eliminate chafing, and the flat-lying fly with single rubber button is optimized for comfort while paddling. Closure is a bartacked ladderlock drawstring for security and strength. Self-draining thigh pocket has a button closure and internal key loop; the pocket also doubles as a self-storage pouch. Outseam is 20". Fair Trade Certified sewn.

Patagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers. Alpinism remains at the heart of this worldwide business that still makes clothing for climbing – as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, paddling and trail running. These are all silent sports. None require a motor and in each sport, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between us and nature.
Patagonia only use organic cotton, recycled materials or repurpose worn-out products within their product line. At Patagonia, a love of wild and beautiful places demands participation in the fight to save them, and to help reserve the steep decline in the overall environmental health of our planet. Patagonia donate their time, services and at least 1% of their sales to hundreds of grassroots environmental groups all over the world who work to help reverse the tide.
