Perfect - Comparable to Baggies.

I love these. .I haven't taken them off. They are very comparable to the baggies but have a lot lighter fabric.

Quick Trying and Comfy

  • Fit: True to size

Bought these for a trip to Hawaii. They surfed great, stayed up, dried fast, were comfortable for hiking and cute enough to wear around town. I usually wear size 8 jeans. The mediums were just right.

Perfect Amount of Stretch

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Perfect for rafting! I recently bought a lot of stuff for my upcoming rafting trip and these shorts are one of the things I am the most excited about! (other than my pfd) Soft and stretchy and casual enough to wear around anywhere!

I need more colors!

I thought I was happy with the barely baggies until i tried these. These are AMAZING! they dont dig in to your hips like the barely baggies do (even with the elastic) and have just the right amount of coverage. Super lightweight and breathable - I would buy them in so many different colors and wear them as my everyday short if I could!
