The Patagonia Men's Gi III Shorts can just as easily go for an afternoon swim as a weeklong trek through the Sawtooths. Made from a light nylon taslan fabric, they have a gusseted crotch that allows unparalleled hip and leg mobility, a zip fly with button closure and an elastic waist with a built-in adjustable belt with separating buckle. The fabric feels light and supple yet resists abrasion; it has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and provides UPF 50+ sun protection. Four pockets (all with mesh lining) include two in front, one zippered drop-in at right rear and a zippered right thigh pocket with an internal key loop.

Is the belt removable or sewn in?
What is the dimension of the belt, i.e., is it 5/8", 3/4", 1"?
Asked on 5/31/2013 by Jester from Cleveland
The belt is a 3/4" piece of webbing and yes it is sewn in at the left front before the buckle.
