Patagonia Strider Pro Shorts Pocket science

Jeff Browning wanted trail running shorts with pockets—lots of pockets. For years he asked for more. Finally he sewed on his own, modifiying early prototypes until they could handle everything he wanted, from energy gels to a Houdini® Jacket. His tinkering resulted in the Strider Pro Shorts—built for a full day of mountain running and developed, tested and proven in the outdoor lab.


The Strider Pro 5in Short was designed specifically for serious trail running. The polyester body wicks moisture and dries quickly. Also the Deluge DWR treatment gives this pair of shorts water-resistant protection so you can stay dry in rainy weather. As for hot temperatures, the Air Flow mesh panels provide excellent breathability and a built-in mesh liner offers sufficient air flow to prevent you from overheating.

Four envelope pockets are perfectly suited for stuffing energy gels and you can safely keep your keys in one zippered pocket. So no excuses whatsoever for not going on a long run on the trails.
