William is going to the World Scout Jamboree in America this summer and with less than 100 days to go we have started thinking about the kit he will need to take with him. The site in West Virginia looks amazing with and there will be lots of water activities on the various lakes on the site so when I was offered the chance to review some swimwear from the Simply Swim website I looked at swimming shorts for William straight away.
Simply Swim have a great choice of swimwear and the website is really easy to use. There is a lot of choice but you can easily filter by department, brand, size, colour etc making your final decision much easier. There is a handy size guide which I found useful as sizes do tend to vary on different brands. I knew better than to choose shorts for William, gone are the days when I could buy his clothes and he would wear them! He had a look on the website and chose two pairs of Speedo swimming shorts which will be really practical for camp. The shorts arrived quickly and were well packaged in a plastic bag that easily fitted through the letterbox.
The first pair he chose were the Speedo Gingham Check Leisure 16 inch watershort which have a tailored finish and look quite stylish. They have two front pockets and a button down back pocket and are made from polyester. The fabric uses an environmentally friendly dying method that results in less water, energy and chemical usage, as well as colour that is more resistant to fading. I hate faded swimming costumes/shorts and end up replacing them frequently so I will be keen to see how well these last.
William has tried them on and said they fit well and feel very comfortable. I have had a look at the stitching and they are very well made with no loose threads (another pet hate of mine!) and they will be perfect for the Jamboree.
The second pair he chose were the Speedo Solid Leisure navy shorts. These are a comfortable loose fitting swimming short, ideal for leisure swimming which will be perfect for the water activities on the Jamboree.
These shorts have an elasticated waist with drawstring and again have two front pockets and a rear one. The rear pocket is secured with velcro and again they are very well made.
William wore these to go swimming this weekend and said they are comfortable to wear and dried quickly.
William already has goggles but when I was looking at Simply Swim's website I noticed they have a good range of Speedo Goggles and with prices starting at £11 there is something to suit every budget.
If you are looking for swimwear then the Simply Swim website is a great place to start, there is a huge choice and something for everyone whether it is swimwear for holidays or swimwear for keener swimmers.
