Men’s Blue Magic™ Water Short is rated out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DrMel from Just what I needed! It’s getting harder and harder to find a simple pair of shorts to wear in the water that have good quality. Happy to find a pair that weren’t board shorts...because that style short just isn’t for everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KarateJon from Nice and light shorts for the water and the graphics are a fun touch These shorts are super comfortable and very light. Good length (not too short or long). It's fun when you don't tell people they change when wet and then they're like "whoa".

Rated 3 out of 5 by DHop from Not what I was expecting I ordered a medium for my size (6ft 172lbs). Shorts were a very awkward fit. However, the quality was great. Not sure a large would resolve the fit issue which is sad. The material feels good and makes me think they would dry extremely fast. The fit itself is just something I can't get over. They're not tight while standing or walking and I would think a large would be a bit too large considering the waist space with the medium, but when I barely bend my knee the front of the shorts immediately pull on my front thigh. Not to mention the 8" length option is something that I'm just not comfortable in, nor does it look good. When you see guys with shorts riding way up on their thighs, these reminded me of that. Some people may desire that fit, but I was expecting something a little closer to the knee. I may try a large if they have them available when returning to the store, but I'm pretty sure the length will remain the same along with the frontside pulling with minimal flex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ReelLife from Perfection! Looking for a comfortable, fast drying, all day short that isn't down passed your knees? This is it. First short I found that's light, dries fast, has a back zipped pocket and two front pockets, yet isn't a board short. Loved the first pair I immediately bought a second just in case.
