I just got a pair of the Hurley 4D board-shorts from The Clymb and my first thought was "wow this is one expensive pair of swim trunks." They need some more colors, i chose the multi-color pair and they look better in person. Anyways they were selling for 79 bucks and i had some store credit so i was able to get them with shipping for about 40 $ which is a STEAL!
I was excited to get them and put them to good use, and they did not disappoint. One of the most comfortable articles of clothing i have put on my body. You feel like you can karate kick like Jackie Chan and run as fast as Usain Bolt. The waterproofing of the suit is second to none, it just falls off the board-shorts like little balls of water. The waistband technology is also very comfortable and secure, but without the feeling that you have them too tight.
Overall i was scared of spending the money, but these shorts of the best of the best! If you're willing to spend the BIG$ and want the best shorts for the summer do it, but try to find a deal for them. If you just want to lay by the pool and not use the parts of the suit designed for activity then these are not for you.
