Men's Low Drag™ Board Short is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from functual shorts Nice shorts, they look good enough to wear out for casual events not just for water activities. I found them a little tight at the belt line and I wear 36 on all other shorts, also, no zipper fly, just a Velcro closure, I find that a little inconvenient .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool design I really like the design on these board shorts. Every company's board shorts run a little different in sizing, it's always helpful to know how a particular brand fits your body. Some brands I wear a 34 and some I wear a 36. I have several pairs of these in the 36. I've been ordering these to fish in for the past 3 years or so and wouldn't wear anything else now. They help keep me cool all day, and if I decide to jump in to cool off on a hot day, they are dry again in no time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way too small and I have to pay to send it back. Not cool. This wasn't even close to size. I order clothes online all the time and have a common size. This was very small and now I have to pay to send it back. Not happy about that.
