    Fits according to the size chart. Can be used as trunks or under your wetsuit. The ends do not roll up when you pull your wetsuit on over it. It moves with you and has good flex and stretch. Keeps you warm.

    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 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.

    Reviewer: Cary   |  3-5-2013

    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.

    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.

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Removed uncomfortable elastic-band on legs.
    Reviewer: Ed   |  4-30-2012

    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.

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Perfect fit!

    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!
