The Band competition swimshort is designed for intensive training and racing purposes with the Waternity technology allowing for longevity and comfort. More time in the pool translates to improved results, increased enjoyment and top performances. Waternity provides maximum resistance against chlorine degradation and sunlight. Waternity contains no elastomer, which is the fibre most susceptible to the harmful effects of chlorine, yet it remains perfectly elastic. Waternity feels incredibly soft to the touch, despite being an extremely robust material, it dries extremely quickly with significantly reduced water absorption compared to conventional polyester/elastomer materials.The shorts also feature an inner brief for extra support and comfort.
'I have him bitched, balloxed and bewildered, for there's a system and a science in taking the piss out of a screw and I'm a well-trained man at it.' So writes Brendan Behan, poet, writer and literary legend, of the episode that coloured his life. Arrested in Liverpool as an agitator for the IRA, he was tried and sent to reform school. He was sixteen years old. The world he entered was brutal and coldly indifferent. Conditions were primitive, and violence simmered just below the surface. Yet Brendan Behan found something more positive than hate in Borstal: friendship, solidarity and healing flashes of kindness. Extraordinarily vivid, fluent, and moving, this is a superb and unforgettable piece of writing. Borstal Boy was adapted into a film in 2000.
