Rated 5 out of 5 by AlaskaRyan Excellent fit
I really enjoy my pair and I find the fit to be excellent. I wear mine for swimming laps and unlike other trunk-style shorts, I don't feel as though I'm dragging a parachute behind me.
I've used them for 2 years now and they held up to 1-1.5 mile swim 3 times a week. I hang mine up after swimming but they still tolerate me forgetting them in the gym bag on a regular basis.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Zdobro Quick dry, No Way.
I bought the swimsuit on the ad claim that they dry in minutes. This is simply not the case. On the swimsuit tag, it says dries faster than a similar cotton bathing suit. That may be true, but cotton is not mentioned in the LL Bean ad text. When was the last time you had a cotton bathing suit? Temperature was over 80 degrees here today. After an hour and a half in the sun the bathing suit was still damp. Be forewarned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tgriff29 Shorts Run Small
Just received my order and these shorts definitely run small compared to other shorts I've purchased from LL Bean. Medium isn't comfortable for a 33 waist. Will have to return and try again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Seattlejanie Runs small but good basic shorts
I ordered a pair of these for my son, he liked the way the shorts looked but upon trying them on, they were too short and too tight. He has only worn medium in all things Bean so far, but for these I needed to return them for a large.
He wears them just as board shorts, we don't spend a lot of time at a pool unless on vacation. I don't know if there will be a problem with fading if exposed to chlorinated water in a pool; for the purpose he uses them for they work well. Cool in warm weather, look nice & comfortable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer No fun at the pool.
I bought these in March for the pool season. The first few times I wore them I immediately noticed the color changed drastically. Now they seem to have disintegrated and have worn areas all over that rip open. I don't think the pool had excessive caustic chemicals. I will be sending them back (good thing they're guaranteed for life#, but I don't even want a replacement. Save yourself some time, money and embarrassment #my pair had a huge hole that exposed my buttocks) and buy a towel to cover yourself instead.

I just returned this. I went swimming and the Blue color faded to Green. I do not recommend this because it. I am very disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LiberatedFromTheCubicle Maine Camo!
I have just received my first pair of Maine Camo shorts and the design makes a unique fashion statement about the state of Maine that no tee shirt or sweatshirt has yet to make. I have several pairs of LL Bean supplex sports shorts, but the Maine Camo shorts will be my primary pair on my upcoming vacation. I am hoping the LL Bean will realize other products in the Maine Camo design, but in the meantime I will order another pair of these shorts.
