  • 1/15/2018 Great REAL NYLON(!) suit

    5 Review Stars By Steve

    Great product, and one of the few swimsuits still available in 100% Nylon, now that other manufacturers have unfortunately abandoned that fabric. Fits well, good style--all good.

  • 7/24/2013 A Really Great Pair of Shorts

    5 Review Stars By Pete

    I use these shorts for lap swimming. The material is light and dries quickly. They are short, just the way I like them. They are definitely not for street or casual wear. They provide adequate coverage because of the inner liner which holds everything securely in place. I bought one pair to try them out and liked them so much I've ordered a couple more to have on hand.

    This swimsuit fabric and cut was exactly what I was looking for. I like the short style and side vents. It is quick drying which is another plus.

  • 8/7/2013 Resistance swim shorts?

    5 Review Stars By Arthur E.

    This fine garment has a misnomer.  It does NOT resist the water, feels very comfortable, is modest, and looks nice.  I order two at a time to use for lap swim.  I alternate them so as to make them last.  About every 6 months I replace them with the same as the chlorine loosens the elastic. I usually  order royal blue and navy.  I have order red, but red does fade quicker.   I have ordered this exact suit about 12 times.

  • 10/31/2017 Great Recreational Fitness Suit

    5 Review Stars By DANA V.

    I’m a fitness/recreational swimmer and use this suit where more modesty is in order. Very light and really don’t notice it’s a drag suit. Durability is excellent. Just bought my third one. I’m a 34 waist and buy this suit in a large.

    5 Review Stars By Robert R.

    I've been swimming in these shorts for years. Light weight. Comfortable fit. Fast drying. Tried all the colors and found only the red doesn't fade quickly. Unfortunately, they discontinued the red color. The black and blue both fade.

  • 8/6/2017 Fabric Too Light for My Liking

    2 Review Stars By tcboyd

    One of the pitfalls of buying online is that you can't "handle the merchandise".  While these swim trunks were likely well made, the fabric was way too light for my liking.  I returned two pairs for a credit.

  • 7/28/2017 Sizing wrong . . .

    1 Review Stars By Gary

    I have a true 32 inch waist, so I ordered the Medium in accordance to the TYR size chart for this item that states if you have 32 to 35 inch waist you should order the medium. When I tried it on I could not get it over my thighs. So best to order up a size, as I will be ordering the size Large for my 32 inch waist.

  • 5/19/2014 Great item

    5 Review Stars By Jarred C.

    I primarily use these shorts for the pool at the gym. They are very lightweight and comfortable. When getting out of the pool you don't feel weighted! I highly recommend these shorts to anyone looking for some lightweight lined swimwear!

Founded in Southern California in 1985, TYR™ has since developed a reputation for high-quality products and equipment. TYR competition swimwear and triathlon gear have been a dominant force in their respective industries. The company is also known for its TYR goggles, swim apparel, triathlon wetsuits and a wide variety of swimming equipment.

TYR was the first company to introduce a pair of goggles designed to fit a woman's face (the TYR T-72). TYR was also responsible for the famous red bathing suits featured on the hit television series "Baywatch." TYR consults with current and former athletes when developing its products. Swimmers know that TYR is a leader in swimsuits, warm-up suits, and swim training equipment. The TYR Tracer Series is one of the most advanced technical suit lines on the market. The TYR Hurricane wetsuits and the TYR Torque collections include top-of-the-line suits for the competitive swimmer.

TYR has also moved into competitive running equipment. From running shirts to shorts, its apparel is designed with the runner in mind. Built with moisture wicking fabric and antimicrobial material, TYR running apparel is designed to give the athlete the most comfortable, dry clothing on the market.

The name "TYR" is derived from the Norse god of warriors, who is said to have embodied victory and glory. Much the same can be said about the athletes who started TYR. Executive Vice President, Steve Furniss, was an Olympian who competed in the 1972 and 1976 Summer Games, and captained the 76th U.S. Olympic Swim Team.
