Rating: Body Glove 6 Oz. 540 Lycra Rash Guard Shorts Review - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews
Reviewer: Craig F.
These shorts look like bicycle shorts in that are snug and a little long. I live in the South Pacific and dive 4-5 times a week. Down here the reef is huge and sharp. You have to have a second skin to provide a measure of insulation between you and Fire Coral. These shorts have held up well and dry fast. Its no fun putting on cold wet gear. I shopped around, and I found the price and shipping very competitive. What more can you ask for?

Im very happy with this product. The sizing is dead on (Im 5 11", 175 lbs., 32" waist, so I got a medium), good quality, and very comfortable. I use an open-cell wetsuit, so in my case any dive skin is going to be less comfortable than no dive skin at all, but I need one as a modesty preservative and as a means to avoid an indecent exposure charge when suiting up at the lake. This is perfect for that role.

Reviewer: Paul S.
These shorts, like all other Body Glove products ive owned are excellent,they fit perfectly.The sizing chart (which scuba.com in their infinite wisdom has supplied right below the product ) is spot on. Good quality product, good price and excellent wear under any wet suit, stop searching...this is it.

Rating: Sizes run a little small
Reviewer: Jeffrey J V.
Yes I understand these need to be a little tight to work well but I will order the next size up next time. I wear Xlarge sized things normally but I think an XXlarge in this would work better under my wetsuit. Quality of the item is A++

Rating: Great Shorts
Reviewer: James Ricci
These shorts are the most comfortable I have ever had. They dont ride up in your suit and they are great between dives. I went on a trip to the channal islands for three days and wore my shorts almost the whole trip. I have tryed numerous brands and stumbled on these by accedent. I would recomend these shorts to anyone who was looking for a great fit and comfortable feeling. GREAT SHORTS.

Sized as stated, thin so it doesnt bunch up under my wetsuit and dries quickly! I am pleased with the product and would recommend it.

  • John:

    I get this itchy, prickly heat rash in the summer that has nothing to do with scuba diving. I’m interested in the “rash guard” feature of these shorts. Do you think that it would help to clear up my rash if I purchased these shorts. I’m itching to know.

    Kevin  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This would be an question for your physician. Rash guards are designed to protect from salt, sand, or dive gear rubbing against your skin.
