Notes: An extremely rare and highly sought after pair of vintage Patagonia 5” River Shorts in excellent lightly worn preowned vintage condition with minor signs of wear including mild loss of elasticity at the waist. Made of 100% quick-drying lightweight ripstop nylon with a 100% polyester mesh lining. Complete with webbing belt, mesh liner, two side pockets, and one rear pocket.

“River Shorts have become standard fare for river guides, surf bums and water rats around the world (where currency is unstable, you can trade them for food). The durable, quick-drying 3-ply Supplex® nylon shrugs off abuse from the most turbulent rivers, rockiest put-ins and abrasive deck grips. The liner is a comfortable PCR (post-consumer recycled) polyester mesh brief. Velcro®-closing pockets are positioned horizontally to avoid snagging on oars. This year, we've made River Shorts one inch longer (5" inseam), and one inch fuller in the legs; the back rise is long for sitting comfort and the webbing belt and waistband (now with improved elastic) keeps your shorts secure in a swim. High-stress seams are triple-needle stitched. Mesh strips in pockets drain water and sand. Imported” (Patagonia, Spring 1998).
