To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am coming from the TYR Fusion Jammers. These are a huge let down. These have 2 layers, and they do not stay put. It bunches up and rides oddly in various places, particularly at the bottom of the leg openings. Unlike the Fusion Jammers, they also hold on to water like a fluffy terry towel. They get VERY heavy when wet.
The worst part is that although they fit skin-tight everywhere, they leave a gaping hole right at your butt-crack where the tag is, so that the tag flips to the outside and there is a hole at that part of the jammers. I NEVER had this experience with the Fusions, nor my old Speedo Jammers.
I don't know why, but these also seem to smell. Never had that problem with Jammers, even when I forgot my wet Fusions in my bag for a week.
Used these about a month and a split formed right on my butt. I'm a skinny dude, so I know it wasn't on account of my girth. They haven't completely split, so I still wear them, which is a risky endeavor cause I'm always fearful that they will split wide open one day while swimming and no one wants to see that. For the price and based on other reviews, I expected them to hold up much better.
I purchased the 32" waist. When it arrived, my wife said "why did you buy our son another pair of jammers?" Our son has a 29" waist. She knew to buy TYR's one size larger. I just learned and ordered the 34"...
