Fully re-engineered with a new four-way stretch fabric, the versatile, performance-focused Stretch Planing Boardshorts feature a slimmer profile with minimal drag. Similar to Patagonia's trusted Wavefarer® Boardshorts design but with an updated fit that maximizes stretch and minimizes seams, the superlight Stretch Planings are made of durable, fast-drying 91% recycled polyester/9% spandex with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 50+ UPF sun protection. The traditional multipiece waistband and fly have been replaced with a fused waistband that conforms to the shape of the hips, improving comfort and staying snug to the body through a full range of motion; the design also eliminates a fabric layer to reduce weight. A forward inseam helps eliminate chafing, and the curved outseam design moves more naturally with the body. Self-draining pocket on right hip has a corrosion-proof plastic zipper, internal key loop and added zipper pull for ease of use. Outseam is 19". Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.
