Default Open water swim in Lava pants

I recently competed in an open water swim that was too warm for a full wet suit. I wore my new lava pants that I purchased from xterra wetsuits. Literally the first time I put them on and I felt like a rocket in them. I do have a problem with balance and my legs tend to sink a bit when I tire so the lava pants corrected that problem. They are really a lot like a pull bouy but you can do the 2 beat kick in them. What I need to do is correct my balance. I do not think that using them on a regular basis is a good idea because they give you a false sense of balance but they sure made a difference in my 3 mile open water swim.
