Takeaway: Modern cut and fit, ample waist but not baggy, comfortable; made with durable quick-drying fabric.

The swim trunks come in about a dozen different color choices. They're made of a 100% machine-washable nylon fabric that is smooth with a bit of texture. The material is thicker/heavier than I expected, like wind breaker fabric, and opaque even when wet. However, it still manages to be quick drying.

There is no fly on the front of these shorts. Inside, you have a soft, mesh liner. The waistband is moderately stretchy and covers a range of about 3 inches. In the middle you have two reinforced button holes for the high contrast neon drawstring. On both sides are mesh-lined pockets that allow the water to drain through. On the back there is a Velcro pocket on the right-hand side.

If we take a close look at the stitching and seams on these, for the most part, the stitch is straight, even, and precise. Only upon close inspection would you notice slight unevenness at closure seams or the occasional loose thread end. According to the sizing chart, the Asian Medium which is the equivalent of a US men's extra-small for waist sizes 28-30" though I found it to be slightly oversized and a better range would be sizes 29-31". The outseam on the "Medium" size is 15.5 inches and the inseam measures 5 inches making these a thigh length short.

The fit was slightly loose for me but with the drawstring tied, managed to stay on securely. It fit much better on a 30" waist. The medium length cuts off just above the knee for a sporty look. As for drying time, after getting out of the water the shorts dried after about 10 minutes in 85 degree weather after toweling off. Overall, these swim trunk beach shorts have a nice modern cut and fit, with an ample waist without being baggy, are comfortable to wear, and made with durable quick-drying fabrics.

Separatec Basic Bamboo Fiber Dual Pouch Underwear Review

Separatec Basic Bamboo Fiber Dual Pouch Underwear Review

Takeaway: Soft and silky, comfortable and breathable, great range of movement without bunching or sweat retention.

You'll receive 3 pairs of identical boxer briefs individually boxed. These boxer briefs are made with 95% Rayon 5% spandex and have a soft, silky, slighty slippery feel to them that glides onto your skin and stretches generously for a form-fitting breathable fit on nearly any body type. The material performs like sportswear and is derived from bamboo and pairs perfectly with an active lifestyle. The easy tear-off tags remove cleanly and quickly so you never have to deal with a scratchy piece of plasticky paper digging into your back.

Separatec's main feature is the dual-pouch system which segregates the male anatomy into two separate areas. The port hole access for the front pouch holds your penis away from the scrotum, which sits cradled in the lower support pouch. This two pouch system encourages air flow and reduces heat and moisture buildup. The low-profile seams are few and barely noticeable against the skin, and the silk-like feel almost feels like wearing nothing at all. The front flap of the pouch lifts up from the bottom for convenient access to relieve yourself when needed. Compared to Separatec's Everyday collection that I reviewed previously, these have a slightly shorter waistband, more modest branding, and performed better at wicking away perspiration making them are a great choice for warmer weather.

Overall, I found Separatec's basic bamboo fiber boxer briefs to be super soft and comfy while allowing for plenty of freedom of movement without bunching, riding up, or causing any uncomfortable stickiness.
