Rated 3 out of 5 by mark304 from dont wear in a pool These are great fitting and very comfortable shorts.....one problem...they are advertised as swimming trunks, but no one tells you that teal turns to army green/yellow after swimming 20 laps in a pool. My trunks immediately lost its color and look ridiculous. I found the inside tag and in very hidden area it says....don't use chlorine based bleaches......thanx! Maybe that fact should be highlighted in product description....still great shorts, but just swim in FRESH WATER ONLY..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Awesome! I purchased these for my boyfriend after I ripped his favorite 25 year old pair from kmart. He adores them, they were a little stiff but after one wash they are perfect, I can barely get them off him to wash. He runs in them, works in them and lounges in them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robert69 from Excellent shorts I have been wearing this style on my daily exercise walks for years. Very lightweight and comfortable. Dry quickly if they get wet. Fit true to size. I wear the six inch length which works best for me but they come longer. Plenty of pockets to carry whatever you need. Well constructed and last forever. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mapaches from swim trunks great trunks. The waist band tie strings are on the inside of the trunks; this is hard to find now; most trunks now are made with tie string on outside of trunks, a very silly look. Also, inseam is only 6 inches, so trunks are a very nice length, providing a timeless classic look. I have only had them a month or two; elastic waistband, so far, is holding up very well. They have been washed and dried 5 or 6 times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GentleOak from Classic Supplex Sport Shorts - 6 Inch These shorts are great for hiking. I hike about 15 miles three times a week and the shorts make a great base layer when it is cold, and then transition to shorts when the temperature warms up and I shuck my trousers. They dry quickly. I bought a second pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mark5168 from shorts I purchased these shorts, before our trip. I ordered from llbean because I knew they would fit and be good quality. You pay more but you order with confidence that the product will be good. I tired them on for the first time before we went out for dinner no problem. You can buy with no worries good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AustroHiker from SUMMER BASIC I wear these shorts daily. I live in a very warm climate where Summer runs from April to November. The shorts are multifunctional. I wear them to hike, walk, around the house, run errands, and even to swim and hangout by the pool. My only objection to the newest version of these is the embroidered logo patch on the leg. The older versions had L.L. BEAN embroidered directly and subtly on the leg in thread the same color as the shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ILoveMyDogsWoman from Quick drying swim trunks These swim trunks can double as running shorts. They dry quickly and are a great length (they hit just above the knees). they have side pockets and a velcro closure on the back pocket (good for money and keys). As with all LL Bean products they are durable and made with quality. The drawstring waist is also a plus for making adjustments.
