Hit new speeds in the ultralight Patagonia Strider shorts, which are made of fast-drying polyester with highly breathable mesh panels and a liner that keeps you cool and comfortable.


Our Strider Pro Shorts carry what you need for a full day of mountain running, thanks to 4 overlapping, stretchy-mesh back hip pockets (2 on each side). An additional card-sized, stretchy center-back pocket closes securely with a zipper. The pockets lie flat and won't flap when empty, and are durable and stretchy enough to expand generously to hold everything from energy gels to a Houdini(R) Jacket. A fast-drying 100% polyester micro dobby forms the body while the side panels (on outer thighs only) use a highly breathable, 100% polyester mesh. Side splits promote airflow and the open-knit 100% polyester crepe liner (with Polygiene(R) permanent odor control) dries fast, weighs little and breathes freely. Brushed elastic lines the improved, lower-bulk waistband and the sturdy drawcord exits externally for enhanced comfort. With a reflective logo on the left hem, a locker loop for hang drying and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. 5" inseam with 2" split.

The Patagonia Men's Strider 7in Short offers the legendary comfort and security of the original Strider, but in a seven-inch inseam length for a bit more coverage on your daily run. Polyester micro dobby fabric is both smooth-wearing and durable, with a DWR finish that repels light moisture and passing showers. The supportive brief-style liner features Polygiene odor control for lasting freshness, even after sweating profusely. Keeping air moving across your upper legs, mesh ventilation panels keep you pleasantly cool on sticky summertime runs. Envelope-style pockets along the hips handily carry your energy gels when you're powering through distance efforts, complete with a zippered rear pocket for securing your cash and house keys. There's also a reflective logo along the front-left hem for added visibility when you're running after the sun goes down.
