Speedo Boys' Gala Logo Panel Jammer - Size 26 / 128cm / 8 years
I've always worn Speedo swimsuits myself because of their quality and fit - they last forever, with the material taking years of repeated wear before it thins or sags. These kids' swimming jammers - basically, short tights in chlorine-resistant fabric - are great. They are stretchy, made of 4:1 polyester:elastane. The drawstring waist makes sure they don't slip down when you're swimming quickly or diving into the pool. They also have a layer of lining at the front to provide a level of modesty and support. The sizing is correct.
They also provide SPF 50 protection against UVB sun (the sort that causes burning). That means they would be suitable for snorkling, when you can be exposed to the sun for a long time without realising you're being burned because you're being cooled by the water.
Please note that, because of the positioning of the lining and seam, they would not be suitable for a little girl unless she wore knickers underneath.
For sale at the time of writing this review at £15.
Our boy loves these jammers. They are really convenient as they take up hardly any space in our bag, they dry really easily using the pools drying machine. A far cry from when I used to wear swim shorts at that age! He finds them very comfortable to wear - although they are snug they have stretch in them so he doesn’t feel constricted at all. I like the fact this style is quite long and they have tie strings on them allowing you to adjust things a bit to suit you. They look pretty cool with their green print on one side on black material. Overall very impressed.
These are well designed and made Speedo swimming trunks in black with a green design and logo down the leg. They fit well for the advertised age group. The material is chlorine-resistant and Speedo is obviously a top brand in this market. Reasonable at the £15 advertised price. My son is very pleased with them and finds them comfortable to swim in.
