The Patagonia Hemp Baggies shorts are a variant of Patagonia's popular Baggies shorts that incorporate hemp as one of the materials used in their construction. These shorts combine the classic Baggies design and functionality with the sustainable and durable properties of hemp fabric.
Hemp is a natural fiber derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. It is known for being strong, breathable, and environmentally friendly. Hemp requires less water and pesticides compared to conventional cotton, making it a more sustainable choice for clothing.
By incorporating hemp into the Baggies shorts, Patagonia aims to provide a more sustainable option for outdoor enthusiasts. The combination of hemp with other fibers, such as organic cotton or recycled polyester, enhances the performance and durability of the shorts.
The Patagonia Hemp Baggies shorts are designed for versatility and can be used for various outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, or casual wear. They typically feature a relaxed fit, an elastic waistband with an internal drawcord for an adjustable fit, and a mesh lining for comfort and breathability. The shorts also have a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish, which helps them dry quickly and shed moisture.
In terms of pockets, the Hemp Baggies shorts usually have a rear snap pocket that doubles as a stuff sack for compact storage. Some versions may also have side pockets for additional convenience.
