The men's Minimalist Wavefarer Board Shorts by Patagonia are perfectly proportioned – nothing wasted, nothing wanting. Made from light but durable 4.3-oz 100% nylon with a quick-drying DWR (durable water repellent) finish, these classic 8"-inseam boardies hit just above the knee and don't chafe. The self-draining, zippered side-seam pocket has a key loop, and the low-rise 3-piece, self-lined waistband contours to the hip line. Our new flat-lying heavy-duty webbing button and plastic zipper pulls are corrosion-proof for maximum stay-on power. Outseam (size 32) is 19". Recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program.
