    Thanks

    Great for swimming, chilling, doing stand up, doing anything other than grappling. I have ripped a few pairs of those to shreds and so has one of my pal's.

    Are the shorts only made for training or can you wear them around the street too?

    I believe yes. But I can't remember anyone putting a definitive answer with regards to the effect of chlorine on the nogis
