Sizing notes

Inseam varies depending on style. Measurements are stated in inches unless otherwise indicated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fatest drying suit I've owned Suit is ultra lightweight and dries incredibly fast. It is a little short on inseam so doesn't protect against wax rash as much as longer suits. Not as stretchy as Phantom shorts but has some stretch.
