" I'm new to open water swimming so bought a lower priced wetsuit this Summer which burst around the tummy area and scratched me around the neck really badly.
I'm petite, but have a fairly broad build with large arm and leg muscles. I decided to go for this wetsuit as it looked more forgiving around the neck and I really wanted something comfortable to swim in. This wetsuit really does fit like a glove. Absolutely no problems around the neck as it's cut lower. It's not a big hassle getting into it and it comes off with no problems.
It's so easy to move around - arms and legs move easily - I don't feel like there's any restrictions at all - nor are there any parts that are too long or baggy!
I usually mountain bike, but do some running. I'm training for a triathlon this year, and have been out in the open water a few times in this wetsuit. I've been so delighted with it. For me it really was worth going over budget this time. "

" Bought this for open water swimming - really good fit and adjustable - so friends have borrowed these too and found them great. Also use indoors for 2 km stretches and never have to adjust these mid swim - so really ideal for long swims. Also look nice - which is always a bonus! "

" Had been looking for cycling shorts and was a little surprised when these arrived in the post. My mistake really - should have changed the info properly. However, am delighted with these, they're really cool and excellent quality. Love wearing these all the time. They're very flattering and I've had a lot of comments on the fit. They really do fit like a glove, they're trendy. A really great pair of "must have" casual shorts. "

" Found these shorts whilst browsing - spent quite a bit of time comparing them with others on line. Have been wearing a pair of hand-me-down cycling shorts for the past 2 years - and the bum in them is really worn! These shorts are great - allow full movement for crosscountry and downhill and material is really strong and durable. The pockets are handy and the shorts reflect well during night cycling. Really pleased with these shorts - they have a fully adjustable waistband which is great - the only downside for me is the velcro around the waist digs in on one side no matter how I adjust the waistband. "

Cons: scratchy velcro

Does it have a built-in chamois padded liner?

No it doesn't. These are more casual shorts than cycling ones.

Are the ladies baggy shorts water proof?

no way.... but they are strong and durable. Better than cycling in wet 3/4 length shorts and when you're out there - it doesn't matter when you get wet and muddy - that's the fun!!!
