  • 9/7/2013 great tri shorts

    4 Review Stars By zul m.

    Just used these shorts for my first tri in open water and they worked great!  After reading the reviews before purchasing on "feel too small," I ordered one size bigger, making them a perfect fit!  The pants stayed-put during the swim and run, and were comfortable during the biking.  Can't be beat for the price!  Delivery was fast and efficient, too!

    5 Review Stars By LRr

    Great tri-short - Have done sprint triathlons and medium length cycling rides in previous pair.  I re-ordered this brand as it had worked so well and lasted.  Warning though - last time I ordered (a few years back) I was a small.   This time I had to exchange for an extra small as sizing had changed.  Now they fit and stay in place as they did before.  Recommended.

  • 8/19/2013 Highly recommended tri shorts

    5 Review Stars By Salad

    Just recently wore these for my first sprint triathalon. I am 5"6 and usually wear a size 4, and the medium fit well w/use of the drawstring. They aren't too short either & never rode up during the bike or the run.

    Positives: Great/flattering fit, quick dry true to the purpose, fair price. Def. recommend these!

    Negatives: Highly recommend HAND-WASHING. Don't think these would last long w/use of washing machine & (due to comments on this message board) looks like the drawstring will come apart. Very thin padding for bike, but this was also not a deal breaker since tri shorts can't really have much padding if you also want to swim & run in them.

  • 9/26/2012 Comfortable Tri Shorts

    4 Review Stars By FirstTimeTriWannaBe

    Sized just a tad too big for me in the thighs but still a great pair of workout shorts. Next time I would order a size smaller to get a bit of compression.

  • 8/19/2013 Great fit- needs to be tighter at bottom

    4 Review Stars By Renee K.

    Used to swim/bike/run in my Sprint TRI. Great shorts. Feel like the elastic at the bottom of each leg could be tighter, seems to bunch a little, but overall didn't seem to affect performance.

  • 7/20/2011 too small

    4 Review Stars By Elizabeth G.

    I ordered this product for a triathlon.  It's a very good product, just too small.  I'm a size 10 and ordered a L.  It was so tight, I struggled to get it on and then I was "muffin' topping" over the sides.  Not pretty!  I still like the product though!

  • 8/16/2013 Awesome Tri Short

    4 Review Stars By Denise R.

    These fit and feel great.  They dry quickly, the compression is nice and I love that the pad is minimal, perfect for the run off the bike.  I also like the length of these shorts, not too long and not too short (I'm 5"5").  houwever, the all black shorts seem to be  slightly longer than those with the patterned waistband.  I actually bought one pair and loved them so much I bought two more.

    The only drawback and only reason for the 4 star rating instead of 5, is that the drawstring keeps coming out in the washer.  I have finally chosen just to leave it out since they seem to fit fine without it.

  • 1/4/2013 nice style, but way too small

    2 Review Stars By janice g.

    Of the 5 items I ordered from Swim Outlet, 4 were too small.  On one of the reviews for these shorts, it commented how small it was, so I ordered bigger.  still too small.

  • 8/3/2013 I love these shorts!!!!!

    5 Review Stars By Lisa M.

    I bought a pair of these and as soon as they arrived I put them on. I swam, biked, and ran in them and I love them. I bought another pair right away. They don't give you the "sausage" legs as they are not overly tight around the legs and the wide band across the top is of perfect comfort!! I love them

  • 4/29/2011 Good Product!

    5 Review Stars By Hannah

    I used these for my first sprint triathlon with included 300yd. run, 13 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run. I was pleased with the product (as well as the shipping). They dried very quickly and were very comfortable. The padding in the crotch was kind of wierd at first, but I got used to it very quickly. I only wore these once before the actual race and they were great. The biking was kind of uncomfortable, but definitely bearable (This might have been different if the biking had been longer). These were great and fit really well, not too tight., but snug enough. I liked the drawstring. Oh, and if you didn't know, don't wear underwear when using this. I used antichaffing product on my bottom and legs just in case and had no issues. Also they look spiffy too! Overall a wonderful product!

The founders of DeSoto are Emilio De Soto and Dan Neyenhuis. Emilio De Soto is a triathlete who is racing in his 27th consecutive season of triathlon competition. He is also fully immersed in his athletic lifestyle as a fitness trainer and coach. Dan Neyenhuis is an age-grouper triathlete who has been helicopter skiing for 20 years. Together, they created a company that designs cutting edge triathlon gear for triathletes, by triathletes.

DeSoto gear is designed to enhance performance in each leg of the race. The founders created the first mesh running cap, zippered tri tops, pocketed tri shorts, transition packs, tri suits, and tri shorts with discreet pads for cycling.

One of their other achievements was creating the DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit that is two pieces instead of one. The DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit was designed to make a better fit for triathletes, and each year, more DeSoto tri tops and DeSoto tri shorts are being added to the line. DeSoto is still the only company in the world that makes a two-piece triathlon wetsuit.
