Show Description

An update on Patagonia's classic Wavefarer boardshorts, the Patch Pocket Wavefarer features a contrasting pocket that gives you more storage space than the original. The contoured waistband and flat fly is comfortable when you're paddling out on a board. And the button closure is backed up by a durable bartacked drawstring to secure them if you get dumped into the surf. The cut and length give them a traditional look and generous coverage.

  • Nylon fabric is tough and quick-drying.
  • Made at a Fair Trade Certified™ facility, from bluesign® approved materials.
  • Contoured waistband.
  • Flat-lying fly is comfortable when prone paddling.
  • Rubber button closure is backed up with a durable bartacked drawstring closure for a secure fit that won't blow off during wipeouts.
  • Self-draining pocket features a button closure and internal key loop, and doubles as a self-storage pouch.
  • 20-inch inseam for extended sun protection
