Way Too Small
We love this suit, but it way too small. Order at least 1 or 2 sizes up.
Fit: Feels too small

Bought this for my son who is a top competitive age group swimmer. He has a preference to briefs over jammers. This is his racing suit and he loves it. Bought his true size and he says it is a tight fit, but he prefers it that way.
Fit: Feels true to size
Great competition suit
This is the only suit my son wears for competition. This is at least his 4th suit of this type. Since he competes year round, they generally last full year with proper care and cleaning. He does not use this as a practice suit.
I have been swimming many years and have gone through dozens of suits over the years... The AquaBlade remains a favorite for several reasons. The cut is just right for an adult male swimmer. The fabric is a polyester blend that is smooth and feels a little less stretchy than other nylon suits which means this suit has a nice way of form-fitting your body, keeping things firmly in place. This is the same kind of athletic support men need in other sports and it helps me to concentrate on the swimming. I have muscular legs and usually wear size 32 or 33 jeans, but the size 34 suit is the best fit. It is a smoother fabric than other suits and I am convinced it is faster in the water for this reason. The weave is tighter, so tight in fact that when you first get in the pool you will notice the suit is actually repelling water and takes a little while to actually absorb water. The sides are 3 inches and for an adult male, in good shape, this is very comfortable around the waist and not too long as to dig into the top of the leg. I am not sure these last any longer than other suits, perhaps a little longer but just like most suits, this one also contains spandex which eventually breaks down. Other than the longevity issue common to most suits, this one performs better than almost every other suit I have ever tried... and that is a large number btw! I have this in Black and the always brilliant Royal Blue.

Good training suit
Overall this is an awesome suit. One thing to be aware of is that the Speedo sizing guide (or the suit) is off. While the waist sizing is accurate and the suit fits snugly as a competition suit should, the leg openings feel uncomfortably tight compared to the rest of the suit. I have about 20 hours on the suit and they don't show any sign of relaxing in the slightest. Will probably go back to jammer for longer training sessions.
Speedo has always been a favorite swim suit line. I like the snug fit of briefs or square cuts for much greater freedom of movement in the water and less drag especially when in the ocean surf and wave riding.

It's not 26. To smallest.
I put 2 images to compare.
Nice brief suit but turned out to be too small and had to return it. Purchased a jammer one size up no objection.
Nice Suit, But Couldn't Keep
My son reports that he generally likes this suit, but it runs big by about 1 size.
Fit: Feels too big
Excellent Competition Suit!
This is a competition suit and is designed to fit very tight when sized properly. It does not have as much "give" as a lycra suit. The Speedo size chart recommended size 26 for a 30" waist but I found that was a little too small. If you are going by the Speedo chart I would suggest going one size larger. Otherwise I would go one size smaller than your waist size. For 30" I would recommend a size 28. Again I would stress that this will fit very tight and that is how it should fit. The suit has an elite cut with narrow sides and rides low, but it looks and feels fast. If you are looking for a practice suit or one for recreational swimming, this is probably not the best choice because it's not designed for that.
