Great product but low cut
I bought this product to do the Ironman Steelhead 70.3 swim. I have issues with a full wetsuit--can't breathe very well. I tried them in the pool and they were excellent. I used them for a swim in Lake Michigan before the race and they were great! The only problem is that they are very low cut. Need to wear something underneath even when training. Other than that, I would highly recommend them. Unfortunately, Lake Michigan was too warm to use a wetsuit (76.7 degrees) so I couldn't use it for the race! If you are considering buying these, do it. You will not regret it.
Fit: Feels true to size
Your comment has been posted.
Reading the size chart carefully and double checking on the hip measurements, I ordered the large. Even though I was super doubtful that I needed a large, but folks seem to be certain that IF the hip measurement was measured correctly, the fit would be correct. Well, I am 5'2", 114 lb. However, my hip measurement reads 36". Based on my hip measurements, the pants should be large. However, upon receiving my pants, before I even tried it on, I knew it would be too large. I tried it on and tried to see if I couldn't just pull the draw string really tight. No! The pant legs were super loose, too! So, it is obvious, that the sizing chart is insufficient to help the customers to find the proper fit. Perhaps, the sizing chart can also supply a weight range for each size. It sure would have saved me some return shipping cost and time!

Fit: Feels too big
Provide great Hip support!
I used these pants to swim a 4.4 mile open water event. They gave me great lower body support, allowing me to focus on my upper body. I noticed a significant difference when training with these pants in a pool - meaning I can feel myself gliding through the water at a pretty quick pace. It's a low cut suit, so wear a jammer or speedo brief underneath for full coverage. I had practiced with these pants only 3 times before swimming my event - so they are not totally broken in yet - but the fit was comfortable. I'm 5'7 and 182 lbs. I ordered a large and they fit fine.

So far, so good
I do Olympic and 70.3 triathlons and wanted to try these to replace my traditional wetsuit (which always gives me fits during transition). The bouyancy of the pants isn't quite what I'd hoped but it's still pretty good. They also have a drawstring which I specifically wanted but wasn't mentioned in the description. Still a new purchase but it feels like the drawstring is kind of stretching the neoprene when I tie it. No failure yet, just feels questionable. Final conclusion: worth the price.
Good Product, glad to add to my tri training arsenal.
Finally, I was very happy to see a 3/4 length workout pair of wet suit bottoms. They have met my expectations, gives me another option for swimming portion of triathlons.

Too tight and too small. I returned it. Hope to get refund
Not made for bigger people. I am 6'4" tall and weigh 225. Not ideal
Fit: Feels too small
Work great for me!!
The Lava Pants help me train in the proper position. I'm more confident in the water and swim faster. Swimming faster improves my morale and feeds my motivation. I started using them in place of a pull buoy, but now use them all the time. As other reviewers have mentioned, they ride low. The fit was true if you follow the instruction and measure hips, not waist.
Very Low Cut Waist
I ordered a large. I am 5-5 and I weigh 177 lbs. The pants are made for a person with a flat stomach and a flat butt. When I put the pants on I had to struggle to get them up over my butt. After I got them on I saw they only covered half of my lower body. I was going to exchange them for x-Large then I realized that would only make them wider not longer. I like the pants if they had fit but you need to offer pants that are waist high. Not everyone likes pants to stop at their hips and the crack of their butt.
Xterra Lava Neoprene Buoyancy Pant

Lava pants has helped me reduce drag due to my poor form. I look forward to long training sessions in the pool.
