Even classics can use an upgrade sometimes, so Patagonia has added a bit more technical comfort and performance to Patagonia's Scallop Hem Stretch Wavefarer® Boardshorts. Made of quick-drying 96% nylon (62% recycled)/4% spandex with 50+ UPF sun protection and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, the design features a functional, heritage-inspired hem that offers increased range of motion in the water. The natural fit has a slightly trimmer silhouette through the thigh, seat and leg; the 3-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 corrosion-proof plastic zipper, internal key loop and added zipper pull for ease of use; the pocket also doubles as a self-storage pouch. Outseam is 18". Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.
