Durable briefs, not quite as good as the predecessor
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 December 2018
These Speedo Endurance+ briefs are a revision to the original excellent Endurance. The fit is almost the same, 34” means 34” as before, however there are subtle design changes to the styling which lessen the quality, and I do not expect my latest purchase to endure as long as the previous one (six years of two or three two-hour sessions a week before the stitching began to wear out).
The new + version has bigger logos on a stiffer backing that pull on the fabric when worn, the front lining is cut short so no longer reaches the side seam, the waistband is thicker and deeper, the gusset wider and the sides deeper. The apertures for waist and legs are the same, as is the style of stitching at all the seams, and both fabrics seem to be the same.
When swimming one can feel the difference at the top of the legs and I prefer the more comfortable original style.
As with all costumes made with these materials, do not wash them with detergents in a machine and do not tumble dry. I rinse mine thoroughly in the shower after the swim, sometimes using some hair shampoo on them if the chlorine was really bad, and allow them to dry naturally.
