    5 Review Stars By Just keep swimming

    Answer to question on the item page:  The inseam for a Medium is 12".   Based on the picture, I thought these may fall just below the knee, they are definitely above the knee shorts.

    Was looking for something to mimic wet suit buoyancy during pool practice and these fill the need.   They are thick, well made and the flat tie string is on the exterior allows it to be easily tied and adjusted during practice.   I purchased the Medium and they fit good (5'11" 157lbs),   I wear them over my 2xU Tri shorts or Speedo Jammers,  I would wear these on a warmer water, wet suit legal sprint tri. The shorts are very stiff in the leg and hips, a good thing since it help develops proper position.

    If I had to be picky about one thing, is the neoprene smells very strong.   Anything these touch also picks up the smell.  I had to move them to the garage as they made my laundry room and anything they come in contact with smell.

    Good shorts and what I expected, but since I have big thighs I couldn't get them all the way up and I even went up a size from my waste.  That's the only reason it didn't get 5 stars

    I am 6' at 185 pounds and the large was way too small. I have large quads from biking and could not pull the shorts up without risk of tearing. Ill order the XL and hopefully have better luck.

    3 Review Stars By Matt

    Great product! But you must order a size up from what you think you need! I'm 6'2 and 195 large is way small! Also if like me you're buying them based on the picture and think they go over your knees they don't! Just below mid thigh on someone my height!

  • 9/8/2017 Really Great

    5 Review Stars By DT

    These are GREAT! More flexible/comfortable than I was expecting, compared to some others I've tried. Buoyancy is as advertised, about the same as the others I've tried. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the external drawstring, so I don't catch hairs and skin in it. After reading other reviews, I ordered a large, and I'm 6'1" with a 32" waste. It fits perfect, tight enough to not fill with water, but loose enough to be comfortable and get on easy enough. The only reason I chose "feels too small" is because had I ordered a medium according to the chart, I'm sure it would have been way too small. This suit it Looong and I love the fit. it comes higher than any other buoyancy suit I've tried, and it's nice not showing the top of my crack off at the pool, or having it fill with water when I make a turn. The legs are long and come to the top of my knee, but not over my knee. It even has some styling and looks really good. The first time I swam with these, I took over a minute off my 2.4 mile PR. I like these so much, that I'm thinking about getting a Desoto Speed Vest, and using it with these for bottoms, at wet suit legal triathlons.
