Description of 🩳 Zone3 2019 Buoyancy Shorts 'Originals': Enhanced Performance with 5/3mm Thickness

NEOPRENE SHORT: Our 'Original' buoyancy wetsuit shorts are made from top Yamamoto Smoothskin neoprene. The shorts are designed using 3mm neoprene down the center for buoyancy and 5mm neoprene down the sides to promote hip rotation through each stroke. IMPROVES CORE STABILITY: These buoyancy shorts help place you in the correct horizontal position, helping to build a "neural pattern' of how you should feel in the water. These swim shorts help keep you afloat so you can focus on your arms and legs. Studies show that with continuous training in our buoyancy shorts, your body position, speed and endurance can be significantly increased. SUITABLE FOR OPEN WATER AND POOL SWIMS: These shorts help develop your open water swimming technique while in the pool, where wearing a full wetsuit would either be too hot, or banned by the life-guards. The buoyancy shorts can be used in open-water training or races as an alternative to swimming in a full wetsuit (when the water is warm enough!). PERFECT FOR A VARIETY OF WATERSPORTS: These shorts are not only good for training triathlon and swim, but also make a good short for cold water swimming, winter pool swimming, surf, windsurfing, kitesurfing and any other outdoor adventure sport. QUALITY GUARANTEED: Zone3 is an official sponsor to the USAT (USA Triathlon) for Goggles, Wetsuits, Trisuits and more. Our products are made from high quality materials. 100% money back guarantee! Our customer service team will address any questions or concerns you may have.

Great product, great customer service.

excellent product. Excellent customer service. The package got lost in the mail because of the postman, but the customer helped me a lot to find my package. Her reaction time was less than 30 minutes. Great product and great company. Easy to use.

Gorgeous swim shorts

What you see is what you get. Get the right buoyancy to keep your hips flatter in the water. I'm a cyclist and I use swimming for cross training, which helps me stay in better shape. Very convenient. I've been using them for about a month so don't know about durability but they are very well built. Excellent value for money and quality.

Ideal for long sailing.

I think I'll need her for the rest of my life! By wearing it I can survive longer swimming sessions. The only downside is that neoprene tears easily and is not easy to repair. Didn't learn this from previous couples, I'm very careful when putting on and taking off - keep my nails off the neoprene.

Poor seam design

Last pair only lasted 2 1/2 months (75 days) before the belt seam started to unravel. Extremely disappointing considering the price. The previous pair lasted two seasons. In addition, they help provide good buoyancy support to improve body position. I just can't justify buying 3-4 pairs a season when that's the new quality control standard for Zone 3.

Comfortable and effective

They are easier to put on than the shorts I used and when I first went swimming I liked them. Having the 5mm neoprene on the side and wrapping it around the bottom of the shorts seems like a better design than my old models with 5mm thickness on the front and 3cm over the bottom. The Zone 3 design is dead effective in terms of buoyancy and might be better than my old shorts in terms of body rotation control.

  • Great price
  • boring packaging

Good but not great: water sports

Pros: 1. Good size 2. Basically as described in the description - only exception is that it is not "shorts as an alternative to a buoy". Cons: 1. They give you about 1/3 the pullbuoy for buoyancy. It's not enough to match a wetsuit like a buoy in a pool. So if you're training for a triathlon and only want to use it in the pool you'll be left out - but if you use a buoy you'll benefit from a streamlined body position to train form in the pool.

the belt quickly discolours and becomes unusable

light, they work perfectly as floating shorts. VERY tight at the beginning especially around the waist and crotch for a man. (They are unisex - they look like a woman's haircut). But it fits well (I have a 34" waist and pretty big quads from cycling, but the big one was the right choice). However, after about 10 swims (mostly in the pool, once in open water), the belt, which is made of a different material than the rest of the suit, has turned mustard brown and is pilling. He seems to be…
