Comfy, Versatile Swim Trunks
on February 14, 2016
Like walking around in a comfortable t-shirt, these Speedo swim trunks are comfortable, fit in almost everywhere, and allow you freedom of movement and motion without a scintilla of constriction or discomfort.
I began swimming with great frequency after recovering from a herniated disc. My old swim trunks were too loose and baggy for lap swimming and for the pool-specific exercises I needed to engage in with my physical therapist. That's how I settled on these trunks, which are versatile in a variety of circumstances -- whether lap swimming indoors, lounging on the beach, doing pool stretches and aerobics, or just traveling to and from the water.
+ Secure & Comfortable Fit. The combination of the elastic waist and the drawstring provide a solid fit.
+ Functional Yet Comfortable. Great compromise between being overly form fitting versus too baggy and loose. Perfect for swimming laps, but not overly tight or form fitting.
+ Interior Full Mesh Liner. It provides a secure and comfortable nest, never riding up or chafing.
+ Length. Trunks rest just above the knee, a great compromise in length.
+ UV trunks provide a UPF 50+. (I've spent enough time in the Florida sun to verify, believe me.)
+ Pockets. Two hand pockets and a back zippered pocket.
+ Dries Quickly. Even the waistband seems to dry fairly quickly with these trunks.
+ Sturdy & Durable. So far they’ve held up well to stains and snags.
- So-So Looking. Aesthetically, they’re not the most stylish looking trunks.
- I am 6’1, 185 lbs. I went with the Size Medium, which fit fine. I think the Size Large would’ve also fit me well.
