Designed and refined for the core trail runner who loves to go long, the Strider Pro Shorts are breathable and flash-drying with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
Over alpine switchbacks and under redwood canopies, wherever spectacular trails lead, the Striders follow. Our Strider Pro Shorts carry what you need for a full day of mountain running, thanks to four overlapping, stretchy-mesh back hip pockets (two 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 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 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.

Polygiene® odor control permanently protects your garments from smelling like a middle school locker room. Sweat itself is odorless, but it creates the conditions that bacteria need to multiply, and some of those bacteria produce odors. Polygiene permanent odor control stops the growth of odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, so you can wear more and wash less.
Active only on the fabric surface, Polygiene permanent odor control does not interfere with perspiration or with the skin’s natural bacterial flora. Polygiene particles are more than 100 times larger than nanoparticles and therefore are too large to penetrate to the skin’s barrier. Polygiene-treated fabrics have received Medical Class 1 approval in Europe, the same class that includes bandages.
|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.
Patagonia's Strider Pro Shorts 5"are a lightweight, super airy short made to perform under high intensity. The material is super breathable, high wicking and fast drying, making them awesome for gym sessions, trail runs or simply wearing in hotter weather. With a nice split up the side, good venting and an in-built super-light brief, these shorts are supremely breathable.
These shortshave additional weight to the longer Strider shorts but they have extra features. A single zip pocket on the rear of the waistband made with super stretchy material and a fabric key loop inside is all most people need for most runs but these give you a lot more options. With four more stretch pockets around the waist you can take all the gels, snacks and extras like your phone, with ease. The elasticated waistband has a durable draw cord for extra adjustability.
