    Feels true to size

    Bought these compression shorts prior to a trip to Nicaragua to de-risk the effects of the inner seam on my board shorts... mission accomplished, 4 sessions a day for 6 days straight in 75 degree water, and the "boys" were feeling no pain.

    Feels too small

    As a scuba diver working with public, these are NOT shorts you want to wear.  Weather just sweating or wet from a dive, the material is 1) not soft, 2) 40% transparent, and 3) lacking in room for your manhood.  I'm a fit 6", 170lbs, with a 32 waist (no love handles) and your average swinging Johnson.  I wear three other brand of shorts and wanted to give Oakley a shot (I love their glasses).  Oakley should stick with what it does best -- glasses.  The Oakley Compression Shorts are simply not on par with other shorts and not on par with the Oakley brand.

    I like the feel and fit. Supports well for exercising. I was however hoping to use them as a swim suit for lap swimming. Too thin and translucent for swimming. Also the drawstring needs to be about 6 inches longer. It is difficult to tie.

Among the many surf-style clothing companies, Oakley™ is becoming increasingly well-known for their men's and women's clothing, Oakley board shorts, Oakley sandals and Oakley backpacks. Oakley combines technology with art to make their products the most appealing on multiple levels. They claim that "Mad Science" drives them to find problems, create revolutionary solutions and package the finished product in eye-catching art.

Centered in Orange County, California, Oakley headquarters looks like a space station. In the Oakley research labs, over 600 patents have been awarded which have increased comfort, style and use. Take a pair of Oakley sandals for example. Its product description has an unbelievable amount of technology: Compression molded footbed with foam and laser-etched graphics for traction, Unobtanium® rubber for durability and Microban® antibacterial material to kill bacteria. It sounds more like an astronaut's boot than an affordable Oakley sandal.

The surfing world needs surfing fashion that can withstand the rigorous waters without compromising style. And with Oakley's technical achievements, the science fiction world meets the sporting world. Now, Oakley is worn in over 110 countries by surfers, beach goers, pool people and anyone who loves water sports. Oakley's line of board shorts, bikinis, one-piece swimsuits and sandals have the best mix of technology and style.
