by TerryTfromNot good in/after the swimFeels comfortable when dry. Unfortunately, when you swim the back pocket feels like a parachute and the padding feels notably wet for an extended period of time after exiting the water.
May be fine for a wet suit swim; otherwise, would not recommend for triathlon use.

by AndyWfromComfortable when wetUnlike others, I found these shorts chafe right on my jimmy while biking dry. I've worked around this problem with a quick squirt from the water bottle before hopping on the bike. Luckily the fabric is dark, so it doesn't look too noticable.
Otherwise they are extremely comfortable. Never a concern when you swim before biking.

by chris the topherfromGreat tri shorts, but fadesi purchased this for my sprint/olympic triathlons. i ended up using this for swim training as well in my local gym. overall the fit is great, chlorine didn't damage the stitching as stated. now for the cons, the material is black, but with usage now is very light brown/orange. the effects of chlorine has faded the color. the thin foam padding has disintegrated to nothing. i mainly use this for swimming now. im too embarrassed to wear it out publicly.
