You guys are mere children. I'll be 77 next birthday - in August. Speedo Endurance is my favourite. Very hard wearing and I prefer the boring black and blue ones. My club colours are blue and yellow but the club briefs have worn too thin to wear in public.

I defer to the wisdom of my elders, Richard, and will go with Speedo blue.

I don't get it. To me the jammers are the best for training and the most modest? and they last forever, unless you sit in an rough rendered hot tub in them.

Yeah, the jammers work fine. Maybe mine are the wrong size but the leg part just feels tight and confining... that's where all this began. I pull them up as high as I can when I swim so I thought why not just buy a suit with less leg...?

I haven't been doing a bunch of leg work recently although I did swim 47 miles in 42 swims recently as a part of a challenge. Maybe my thighs got bigger, I don't know but my weight has actually gone down a little so it's not just me getting fatter. :-)

Thanks,

They're not really short, the Endurance line is pretty heavy-duty and won't die easily, and they're less binding than jammers. They run a size small though.
I recently completed an experiment with the Speedo Endurance line. After years of not being able to wear a competitive swimsuit for more than about 6 months (at the most) before it began to fray around the rear seam or became so limp that it would slide down as I was climbing out of the water (unless I pulled the draw string super tight), I decided to buy an Endurance suit. That was about 4 years ago, and it wasn't until this year that it finally started to get a little limp from the chlorine and I decided to replace it.

I didn't find the Endurance line to be undersized.

Another line worth testing, Bob...
http://www.skylinenw.com/c-154-barracuda-swimwear.aspx
(Also available through many retailers)

"The Barracuda polyester blended Fastback utilizes a revolutionary Italian Darwin fabric that is chlorine-proof, making it a great pool training swimsuit.
The quick drying stretch polyester material will not lose shape or color due to chlorine and also provides 50+ sun protection."

Last one held on for two years, about three-times longer than most Speedo suits I've worn. The suit was still in great shape but the lining - front only - shredded.
Its replacement is fully lined. Friend at the pool has had hers for a year, swims about three-hours weekly and claims that the suit shows no wear.

No, I don't work for the company.^
