I bought these last summer for surfing in SoCal. Before buying the shorts I was surfing in a 2 mm wetsuit jacket and board shorts (in late summer). I do get cold easily, but with board shorts I was usually so cold after an hour or so that I would have to get out to warm up. Wearing thesereally helps to keep my lower body warm so I can enjoy longer sessions.
These are great. thin and they stay on.
A Good Buy
Reviewer: Kyle B
These 2mm O'Neill Hammer Wetsuit Shorts were a good buy for the money. They seem to be of top quality material and they have a nice, comfortable fit.
Excellent service and equipment
This is my third order of different items and I have been pleased with all items and the excellent service.
Great service and equipment
I returned a suit because I felt too confined. No questions asked, they gave me a complete refund. These shorts are comfortable and well made. The service and equipment they sell is the best.
O'Niell Hammer Wetsuit Shorts
High quality product, very form fitting, the elastic bands just above the knees are a little more snug than I would like but nothing I can't live with. Haven't worn them yet but they look and feel like a high quality paisr of shorts. I will be using them for swimming/tri's.
Removed uncomfortable elastic-band on legs.
I am 6'2" tall and 225-pounds. I bought the 2XL-size. The shorts fit fine. Not too loose; not too tight. Very form-fitting.
I found the added elastic-band around the bottom-most part of the leg to be uncomfortable for being tight. I was able to cut the threads of this band with cuticle-scissors, and remove the band from each leg without damaging the neoprene. This took me over an hour to carefully do. The stretchy neoprene of the shorts still fits very snugly around my leg without the added elastic-band. Maybe the added elastic-band is needed for surfing; it is not needed for swimming.
The waist also has an elastic-band which is not too tight. The waist has a thick drawstring, which I do not think I will need for swimming. You might need the drawstring for surfing.
I have not tested the shorts for warmth yet. The 2mm neoprene seems thin, and not noticeably different from my 1mm or 1.5mm tops. I plan to wear these shorts over Lycra shorts, and I am optimistic. The shorts are flexible enough that I can layer if I need more warmth.

I live in SoCal and was quite comfortable taking a dip, wasn't surfing so I can't comment if they would be appropriate for that but I KiteSurf and they work just great!
