These board shorts are schnazzy. The 22 inch inseam means they come right down on my knee, unlike most other board shorts which stay above it. The trend among board shorts recently is getting shorter, but I'm a fan of longer board shorts because my thighs aren't much for the ladies.
The H2 Repel coating is great. It beads water away quickly and dries faster than other shorts. It's nothing like Billabong's PX1, but it does the job better than other shorts. It's likely that the H2 Repel coating will wear off in years of use and abuse, but you're more likely to rip your shorts gaining weight before then, right?
