Love that they are made in the USA (big plus). Fit is snug but not too tight. I have used them as swimwear since the hang-tag states "Performance Blend of Water and Wind Protection". Love the 4" length since the length of the men's jammer swimwear is to long for my body. Note: the lighter colors (Pink, Red and Orange) may be see through when wet so I will usually will wear a nylon bikini brief, in a matching or contrasting color, as a lining. After swimming, I make sure that I rinse the shorts thoroughly in fresh water and lay them out flat to dry. Since, they are fairly quick to dry, I will sometimes wear them the rest of the day and let them dry on my body.
I bought these for my 11 year olds playing volleyball in middle school - size XS fit perfectly for them. They say they are comfortable and I have very picky (about clothes) kids, so that is a win. They are long enough that they don't show things that don't need to be shown.
