The Quandary Shorts are a technical outdoor short with a women’s-specific fit and an ultra-durable build, perfect for travel and all-day summer hikes. They’re made from a blend of lightweight and quick-drying nylon (that’s 62% recycled) with a touch of spandex, offering plenty of stretch. Patagonia coated them with a durable water-repellent finish to shed moisture and has designated them with 50+ UPF sun protection. The waistband is curved to follow the hips, while a gusseted crotch allows for improved mobility. They also come in a slim-straight fit, which is perfect for women with lean-to-medium builds.
