Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay for pool, NOT for the beach I live in Hawaii, I take my son to the the beach a lot. These shorts are made of durable material, which I appreciate it, but they also have a couple features that trap a lot of sand: a 4" strip of velcro right below the board short string, and the annoying mesh underwear. We took these shorts to the beach today for body boarding and my kid got out of the water with a butt full of sand trapped in the underwear. I know that I can just cut those out but the sand trapped in the velcro is annoying. Sometimes I wish the designers of these outdoor companies vetted their designs with real people to create functional clothes, especially for kids. LLBean: I shop your website a lot. It's my go to when I am looking for quality and functionality. I was looking forward to using these shorts after a bad experience with another brand's shorts that tore badly after a few weeks of use. These shorts, not your best design. Get rid of the velcro and mesh underwear in future designs and I'll happily keep buying your board shorts for my kid and as gifts for other children. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best board shorts! The best and smartest feature is the adjustable waistband (interior elastic strap w/button). which works great for boys on the slim side. Keep producing these board shorts with this feature LLBean as it's very difficult to find any board shorts that include an adjustable waistband. Am hoping for some new designs and bright colors . The bright colors are "in" plus it's easier to spot a child.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Board shorts My son loves them, loves the fabric- a little more substantial than some other flimsy brands.
