Rated 4 out of 5 by charlietuna Will use for swim workouts
Since you can not see many of the swim short items in a store I ordered these and the Dolphin water shorts and Dolphin Guard shorts. I agree with the one commenters assessment that the Dolphin shorts are cut too wide at the leg. The only difference in the 2 Dolphin shorts are that the Guard shorts have pockets. I returned both Dolphin shorts.
The Speedo surf runner shorts I will use for swim workouts. It has an inseam of 4" so shorter than the 6" I have used in the past. I have not found a 6" inseam swim short yet. The Speedo surf runner volley short does not have pockets. I think the shortest "board" short has an 8" inseam and may try one with pockets for the beach.
This is just my out-of-package assessment. I have not gone swimming in them yet, but they do look perfect for swim workouts.
