These shorts feel premium to the touch and the fabric moves very well wet or dry. The printing is vibrant, the colors are bold and do not fade. The ties are long enough to actually use but they are not attached so don’t accidentally pull on one side. I would tag them as a 5 inch short so when sitting down, things can get tight with the liner. Do yourself a favor and locate all the “Bang” branding as you will get lots of attention with these. I also purchased the matching tank for a cool cabana look which also got lots of attention. Overall, great shorts, great material get several!
