  • 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.

  • 6/1/2017 Great Shorts, but smaller than sizing chart

    4 Review Stars By John M.

    These are 5 star shorts but the sizing chart forces me to drop a star.
    I use these for pool training and they have held up well, no discoloration or deterioration. I do rinse them after each pool swim. I did happen to create a small tear on the hip. This was caused by how tight these fit. ORDER 1 SIZE UP!!! These are too small according to the size chart.
    Yes I can get them on but it's like squeezing into a sausage casing. I'm 5'9" and 190lbs and large is too small.

  • 12/12/2016 Runs small

    4 Review Stars By Josh

    I'm 5'7" and 156lbs and a small is to small.  I exchanged for the med and like them.  They do add a little drag (not very much) but the buoyancy is pretty good.  These will be my full time lap shorts.

    2 Review Stars By Doug

    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.
