Every Triathlete's Dream Review by Marty

I have worn the Desoto Speed Tube and like those pantsa lot. Although I love the Desoto pants, I like these even better, more comfortable, better fit, and even cheaper. I have completed 2 one hour sessions in them the past 2 days and have had my best 2 swims ever. I will be buying a second pair real soon. (Posted on 4/14/14)
Tend to slide down waist Review by Doug
Quality

First, let me say I love my Lava Pants! They are a great training tool. My only complaint is they slide down my waist after every 500 yards or so in the pool. I have to stop and tug them back up. I'm sure I have the correct size as they are very tight/snug when I put them on. I tie the waist band tight but they still slip down. I've been training in them for 3 weeks now and have tried pulling the leg bottoms almost up to the bottom of my knees to no avail. Anybody else having this problem? (Posted on 3/14/14)
Superb Review by Ray

The Lava pant does just what it is designed to do. Like most triathletes, I spend a lot of time in a pool. I work on form and technique so I can be a good swimmer. Wetsuits do make us swim a bit differently and I have never wanted to wear my wetsuits in the pool. The Lava Pant is great for getting in and getting the wetsuit feel. I think they would be great for a warm water triathlon because they allow you to maintain your kick and they keep you on top of the water. I think these are a great tool and fun to swim in!!!

I could live in these pants! Review by Gina

I tried the Lava Pants in the pool for the first time the other day. Normally I feel like a manatee in the water. I'm slow. Since I registered for my first Ironman this season, I need to go faster. In the first swim session, the pants shaved off so much time it was CRAZY! I felt more like a shark!

They are easy on and off and you barely notice that you are wearing them (other than your warp speed laps!)

I cannot wait to use these all the time and watch my swimming improve! I highly recommend them! DON'T HESITATE to get them! (Posted on 1/29/14)

BRING IT PEOPLE!!!

LAVA PANTS are the equivalent of going from a STEEL TO CARBON framed bicycle. Never have I had speed increases from a product since that upgrade.

Yes, LAVA PANTS for training purposes, ARE AN UPGRADE from normal suits and a cheap one for this day an age. Top off your butt kicking workout with LAVA PANTS and you will know your game instantly improved. (Posted on 1/17/14)

What Took So Long? Review by Skel

I gave the pants a good hour workout Sunday afternoon and the first thing that came to my mind was, “what took you so long?” Really, I don’t ever want to train in the pool again without them. First the obvious. In eliminating the need for a pull buoy I swam faster and smoother with less effort. And of course the slick skin of the pant eliminates even more drag. Having my legs totally free allowed me much more freedom in my hips, again creating more speed with less effort. In the recent past I’ve had some issues with my lower body position on my backstroke. Not anymore. The pants put me right where I need to be for a good kick, good hip turns, and a smooth stroke. Really, I’m a very average swimmer but these pants allowed me to kick it up a notch without exerting additional effort.

Now as for the size. At 205 with a 35 inch waist, I’m right on the cusp between a medium and a large. Thus, while the medium was tight leaving me minimal coverage, the large will be too big once I drop 10-15 lbs. No worries, though. The pants are priced right and buying another pair in a couple of months is minor compared to the benefits I expect I’ll get from them. (Posted on 9/10/13)
AWESOME Training Tool Review by Chelo

I just completed my 1st training session with my new LAVA Pants....they are AWESOME!!! I was able to shave 20 seconds and 16 strokes off my 100 interval. I in an outdoor pool and it was sunny and 85 degrees. I was very comfortable and never felt like I was roasting. For anyone who trains mostly in a pool (like me) these are a MUST have. The sizing chart is accurate. I have a 34" waist and I ordered the large and they fit perfect. I was told by customer service - if you are close to the larger size - order the larger size. Do not be put off by the "low cut" as they are cut no lower than the speedo shorts I normally wear. (Posted on 8/30/13)
Frickin' Awesome Cheater Pants! Review by Avery Steve

Got my Lava pants today and did my regular lake swim. Love them. I like the safety that a wetsuit's buoyancy gives when open-water training, but don't like wearing a wetsuit (even my Vector Pro) when it's hot in July-August-September and the water's warm. The Lava pants are perfect - the lower-body lift of the suit, the safety factor of being able to float effortlessly, and the feel of the water on my arms and chest. Absolutely what I hoped for when I ordered them. Thanks! (Posted on 8/30/13)
