I’ve had multiple regular 5.5” chino shorts that have held up very well but sadly these swim trunks have ripped in the crotch area. I’ve had these shorts for a couple weeks now and have worn them around 4 times at this point. Really sucks as I’ve had great experience with the quality and fit of bearbottom shorts in the past and so have my friends.
Love the design, love the material.
They fit a little tight and squatting isn’t the easiest, I already have a seam starting to tear but those are the only issues I have with it.
The netting in the pockets are very, very easy to break apart from the actual shorts. Break out your sewing kit.
Besides that, great pair of shorts!
I absolutely love the design, however when I bought them I expected them to fit like my pair of "guardians" that I had previously owned. The fit was much tighter and the material was different than what I was expecting. I ended up giving them to my boyfriend and he likes them but I was disappointed that they didn't work for me. I'm going to buy a pair of the stretch swimsuits that y'all just released and see if that works better.
I have 2 pairs of these and they're amazing for the most part. I have a black pair I got 2 or 3 years ago and another pair in a different pattern last summer. The ones I bought last summer seem to have a new liner that has slightly smaller holes and is a softer material. I hardly wear my black ones now because the old liner is so uncomfortable compared to the new one. That being said, I highly recommend the direction they're going for comfort.
