With a new no-inseam construction, the men's Patagonia Light and Variable Board Shorts keep you chafe-free while trimming past sections at some empty East Cape point. Patagonia's most minimal board shorts, they’re a field-tested ambassador favorite – they like the simple design and lightweight fabric, which can handle underwater drag when diving or bodysurfing. Made of a lightweight and durable polyester ripstop with 50-UPF sun protection, they’ve been fine-tuned with a flat, low-drag waistband, and they pack into their own tiny travel bag. Other features include a flat-lying, no-button fly with drawstring closure, self-draining horizontal side pocket with internal key loop and rear pocket that reverses out as the integral storage pouch. Pockets have noncorrosive plastic zippers, and the secure bartacked drawstring is durable and increases mobility. 18” outseam.

How to shop for men's Patagonia board shorts
"Over the past couple of years, Patagonia has both expanded and tweaked their best-selling collection of men’s board shorts.
