I love the concept, look, feel, & fit. My only complaint is that they don’t breathe. Not sure that is fixable with recycled plastic.
The pattern is fantastic and the material is high quality - soft, smooth, and sturdy. Fits great. Not so sure about the button - some loose threads that needed to be snipped and buttoning seems slightly awkward. Am used to velcro fly but definitely wouldn't want to take a chance of snagging these and they are comfortable. Despite that minor detail, these are replacing an old flimsy and faded pair and expect to get many years of paddling and swimming in the ocean with these! (My wife did notice that the pair the model has on has a white paracord tie?)
As a diver, lover of marine life, and person who has often found men's trunks/shorts offerings underwhelming, I was pleased to find Waterlust. As a frenemy of the invasive lionfish, I ordered these given my interest in the fish and the brazen yet restrained pattern, coloring. And the quality is sound. Hopefully, Waterlust thrives.
My husband has had the whale shark print for a couple of years and loves them. We were so excited when the lion fish print became available. It’s a really cool design.
The board shorts are light weight without being flimsy. Very comfy. The wide waist band conforms well and is easily adjustable wirh the drawstring. Good length without extra fabric at the knees. Wore them kayaking Sat and biking Sunday over a pair of bike shorts. They allow good air circulation so they dry fast. By not relying on elastic in the waistband for fit, I hope they will still work well for years after the elastic in baggies is shot.
