Where have you been all my triathlon life?! Review by ShellyG
Quality
Price
Value
"Half a wetsuit but everything you need for cool to warmer-weather distance swims."

Tried out this invention today in the pool and all I can say is "HELLO Lava pants, where have you been all my life?" These wetsuit capris run from hipbone to mid-calf and have a drawstring waist. The first thing I noticed was that my hips popped to the surface of the water so well I didn't even kick for the first 250m. It was like I had pull buoys all along my lower half! The second thing I noticed was my stroke became more powerful, likely because I was finally in the right position on the water. The capris felt soft, light, and just like a normal wetsuit except my upper body was FREE and I could breathe with ease.

If you hate your wetsuit but still want buoyancy, you deserve these pants! (Posted on 7/28/14)
Awesome training tool! Review by Jeff

I have been thrilled with the Xterra Lava Pants. I have used at the pool where they allow me to focus on my technique with my arms because I don't have to think about my legs. I have also been using at the lake when the temperatures are a bit warmer than what I would prefer in a wetsuit. This has been a great option to keep me moving and feeling more safe than swimming without a wetsuit in open water. Awesome product!! (Posted on 7/17/14)
Great Training Tool Review by K
Quality
Price
Value
Just finished my first 5K swim with Lava Pants and they worked great. Here is what I learned:

1) The buoyancy of the lower half of my body was greatly increased and allowed for ease of both T.I. and Quick form swimming technique.
2) Due to positioning and streamlining went from 20 - 22 strokes per length to 16 - 18 strokes. Note: I train for Triathlons so I only use arms to propel and only kick to adjust body position as apposed to propulsion.
3) May need to invest in anti-chafing item due to a seam that rubbed low on my backside during flip turns.
4) Thermal retention of this item is very high. If you need to always be cool in the water you may not like these, otherwise this is no major issue as new cold water can replaced the water your body has heated inside easily.
5) My only con to these is the price. I had a coupon code that had them bundled with the Xterra Transition Bag but it had expired. That deal, if available again, I advise anyone of which to take advantage. A training partner gave me another code that took some off the initial price which caused me to decide to buy Lava Pants

Conclusions:
Buy these if
-- you get a good deal
-- you want to improve training
-- you want to simulate using a pull buoy w/o having to concentrate on maintaining grip with your legs

The extra days for the return policy on the Lava Pants is a great aspect of these, but I know that I will not be returning them. These are a great item in my training toolbox.

I wish I had been able to get the bundle deal with the Xterra Transition Bag included in the price before the offer expired. (Posted on 6/26/14)

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)
