Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Color! Just received these in the blue gingham and the color and quality are great! Perfect summer purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trunks These are great trunks, very lightweight but made well enough to last. The only complaint is they run about a half size large. I ordered the XL which is my size in 95% of all swim trunks, but would consider a L next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts! I purchased these super backcast shorts in navy gingham for my teenage son. He has gotten so many compliments on them and he loves them. They are great quality and perfect to wear all summer especially if you are in and out of the pool- they dry super quick. These super backcast shorts are just a little bit shorter than the regular backcast shorts, and the fit is great. Would highly recommend!
