With inseam-free inner thighs, the travel-savvy Patagonia Light & Variables keep you free of chafe while you strobe through barrels or trim down the line. Like Speedos but without all the bright white upper thigh, their light weight and functional simplicity make them a longtime favorite. Made of durable polyester ripstop with 40-UPF sun protection, they’re fully tuned with a trim silhouette and flat, low-drag waistband; the fabric is bluesign® approved. Other features include a one-button, flat-lying fly with drawstring closure, and a back pocket that's self-draining, has an internal key loop and also doubles as a compact stuff pouch. Pocket has a noncorroding plastic zipper, and the turned, bartacked drawstring is durable and adds mobility. Outseam is 18".

Patagonia Size Chart - Men's
Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions, and are in inches, unless otherwise noted.
* Inseam will vary depending on style; when lengths are offered, "short" is 30, "regular" is 32 and "long" is 33, unless otherwise noted.
DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
Bluesign Approved Fabric
Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.
In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.
Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.
