Tight leg cuff
Aug 29, 2013 | Posted by | Gender: Male Sport Interest: Swimming Age: 35-44
The issue with these jammers for me is the tight leg cuff. It feels like the stitching is not allowing the cuff to stretch as much as the fabric. It feels a like a shockcord tightened around my quad...and I don't have big quads. The rest of the jammer fits fine, so I would not size up to alleviate the issue, that would just make the rest of the jammer fit baggy. I bought a Nike jammer that has a wider leg cuff and I don't feel it after putting it on. The TYR's are un-wearable...too bad, as I love the brand and products up until now...should have returned right away but hoped it would get better as I wore them...bad strategy, as I'm stuck with them now.

Poor Fit Means Poor Comfort
Aug 23, 2013 | Posted by | Gender: Male Sport Interest: Triathlon Age: 35-44 Size Purchased: 36
These are loose in the crotch/thigh yet tight in the leg cuff and waist. This makes for a saggy fit around your crotch that feels like what I imagine a wet diaper feels like or wet cotton whitey-tighties. Flattering visual, eh? Not.
The material is thin which, beside contributing to the sag, also makes it seem see-through only after a couple months of pool/open-water use. I followed the manufacturer instructions for hand-washing and line-drying.
Speedo Endurance+ material feels much thicker and worthy of abuse without fear or wonder of it being see-through. I have not yet tried TYR's Duralast material.
I have somewhat short legs (31" inseam on a 5'10" tall body) so the 9" inseam on these jammers is a bit on the long side for me but that's personal preference. I purchased a size 36 when I had a 36" waist. There was definite sag then. Since then I've dropped to a 34 and have not even considered using these again.
The design looks nice though but I would not recommend this to a friend.

As the previous reviewer mentioned, the fit is poor at best. It feels fine dry but gets saggy and baggy in all the wrong places when wet. Ironically, the leg openings and waist seam seem tight but the crotch and thighs do not hold shape. I considered that perhaps the sizes run smaller but the tightness of the leg openings nixed that idea. Because the fit is so loose, it does not feel fast in the water and thus, performance and overall comfort suffers. As for the material, let's just say it's not as durable as Speedo Endurance+.

the fabric at the butt degraded and became see-through within 4 months. White stripe started turning yellow/brown the first week or two. Fits well when dry, but bags and feels loose in the water. Care instructions make it seem more delicate than a raw egg. Really not happy that I have to buy a 2nd suit in a single 5 month swim season. Never again.
