These feel great and I really like them a lot. BUT, the string comes out every time I put these in the washer/dryer. Even when I tie the strings together!! I can make this work with a double knot. I just wish they would design that a bit better.

Rating: Very comfortable and helped protect against chafing.
I wore these while snorkeling and scuba diving in Grand Cayman underneath my swim trunks. They were comfortable and really protected me against chafing. I have had problems in the past with chafing from swim trunks. These really helped.

Rating: Great for under wetsuit
Reviewer: Holly L.  -  View all my reviews
Bought these for my husband to use under his wetsuit. very pleaded with them says they are much better that a pair of swim trunks that always get bunched up. Also makes getting the wetsuit on a bit easier. Material is quick drying and seems to be pretty durable so far.

Rating: Gets The Job Done
Reviewer: Michael B.  -  View all my reviews
Correct fit- no sagging elastic or funny seams. You dont really notice them beneath your board shorts, but they give you just the right amount of protection and support. Now I dont have to go anywhere to change in and out of my wetsuit!

Rating: Very Comfortable
Reviewer: Terry P.
I bought the large shorts. The shorts fit very well, no large bulge on the front or anything. They were very comfortable under my wetsuit. The only minor problem I had was the draw string getting pulled into the shorts. Took me forever and a day to fish the string back out. Now I am very careful when putting them on or taking them off so i dont loose the string. But dont let that stop you from buying these good looking, nice fitting shorts.

Questions and Answers for Mares 6oz Trilastic Rash Guard Shorts:

  • Bansi:

    Is this shorts (need M size) available in your stock? Last time I ordered it was so delayed that you gave up & refunded me.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Bansi, we are current out-of-stock on this item till 5/23/2013.

  • Mamdouh:

    Hi, is that short thickness 0.5mm or skinny short ?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Unsure exactly what you are asking here, but a 6 ounce short has roughly the same thickness as a .5mm neoprene suit. When you see an item listed with an "ounce" rating that will denote it as being a fabric based garment. Any items you see listed in mm will be a neoprene based item.
