These shorts were superb for my boys' swimming lessons. Good fit no matter what body shape you are.
Good value .

Starting to sag
I was initially really pleased with these. Good fit, good looks. I swim three or four times a week and rotate three or four pairs of togs. Sadly, after just six weeks and no more than twelve swims wearing these, the Zoggs material has started to get that saggy chlorine-depleted feel. The Speedos I bought at the same time are still going strong.

I brought these for my son as he is learning to swim at the moment.
He had a pair of beach style swim shorts before which he did OK in but since using these his swimming has got better.
They are a better fit and do not create as much drag in the water as the old shorts he was using.
I believe these will enhance his swimming and help him to learn far more effectively.

They are good quality and wash well. Might need to go down a size as they are a generous fit.

Fit my son well, seem to resist clorine quite well. They also have very little drag compared to shorts

Zoggs Boys Cottesloe Hip Racer
Good pair of trunks for general swimming and training. Keep their shape colour well, dry quickly. Give a good fit. Good price.

good product which looks like it will last
we bought the 23" waist 6-7 yrs.
this is the minimal size and will stretch much more.
my sons waist at 6 yrs is 22" so a little baggy on him #he's quite well built for his age# but he'll grow into them and they look like they will last well. they have a drawstring too so no problem with loosing them when diving in!
probably a better fit for 7yr old

good value classic
Great appearance but as my son is tall and lean around the tops of the legs the trunks are a bit baggy so sould suit a chunkier build better. Nevertheless he is wearing them for swimming classes and says they are comfortable and seem to wash and keep shape well so far.
Very prompt delivery, thanks

These are fast trunks
My son 7 says "These are fast trunks, dad". Can't really say any more.

Good purchase, excellent service
They are a good pair of trunks, as described and appear to wash well so far. Sizing was a bit confusing and I think they are on the small side but that suits my son. Very speedy delivery.

Good training swim shorts.
Good sizing, comes up just slightly on the small side (1/2 inch or so) so if you are right between sizes, go for the upper choice. The leg is slightly shorter than other similar products (e.g. Maru Pacer short) giving more of a trunk look than short look. Usual hard wearing Chlorine resistant material similar to other manufacturers. Could do with a slightly longer tie cord, but sufficient. Probably not suitable for children with particularly skinny legs, but otherwise very cool for Children.

Not too bad. Haven't tried it yet, but looks good for value.

Great - both boys love them and they an wear them as bathers or under board shorts at the beach.

Previous Adidas swim trunks have sagged within 3 months, the fabric not being able to cope with chlorine although I do wash them after every swim. 6 months after buying these they are as strong and tight fitting as ever - great quality.

Excellent pair of trunks. Fit my 'skinny' son perfectly with no baggy bits.

may have got the wrong size
Appears to be of good quality, but they do not seem to fit as snuggly as other brands have a tendency to sag, perhaps I bought a size to big, they are for my son.

Trunks of dignity!
I don't want to say too much about boys swimming trunks!, but these are a great design. Good fit, little drag in the water without having to resort to old skool trunks and a lack of dignity. Much better for kids to learn to swim in than baggy shorts.

Simple shorts for my son

Looks and performs well
I really like this swim short and so does my 6 year old. Particularly good as he likes to put them on at home before going to the pool - he says they feel really good! They also look great on him, so much so, that we've bought the mens version for his Dad.

Nice pair of swimming shorts
Fit well, stay up without needing to tie the drawstring

I bought these trunks for my son who swims several times a week, they not only fit well and look good but have been washed and washed and still kept their shape. I would definately buy another pair!
