Ready to suit up? Let us help. We took the time to hand-pick our favorite men's competition swimsuits and assemble them here to make your choice easier. Every pair of jammers is designed to compress and streamline the body, aiding in acceleration, efficiency, and coolness.
Compete in Style
Want to win the race? Sport a pair of sleek Speedo jammers to maximize your hydrodynamic potency and shave seconds from your time. Jammers by Speedo are graded according to the hardiness, weight, and water-repellancy of the fabric. Speedo's FINA-approved AquaBlade blend tops the list with its "water-channeling stripes" that make you feel positively slippery in the pool. But most of Speedo's swimwear is made from one of the brand's most popular fabrics − Endurance Lite or ProLT. For more information about Speedo's proprietary blends, check out our Speedo fabric guide, a comprehensive resource for coaches and athletes.
Jammers by TYR are equally well-made, fitting true to size and coming standard with UPF protection and anti-microbial linings. TYR's exclusive fabrics are exceptionally durable, with many suits exceeding 200 hours of swim time.

How to Fit Jammers
If you've got your eye on a pair of jammers but you've never tried them before, know that they're supposed to be tight. They shouldn't be affecting your circulation, but don't take that to mean that you should order a larger size, even if they're for a growing child. Loose fabric causes drag.
Once you have your new jammers, you'll want to put them on carefully to avoid stretching or ripping the fabric. Keep your fingers as flat as possible to avoid using your fingernails. Pull the lower hem all the way over one knee, then the other. Then slide the fabric over your thighs, situating your legs in the suit. Make sure your seams are positioned properly and slide the jammer all the way on.
Caring for Jammers
Now that you've invested in a new pair of jammers, the last thing you want to do is ruin them before they've seen their first race. Because exposure to chlorine causes swimwear to bleach, stretch, thin, and sag, it's important to remove chemical residues after you swim. Taking care of your jammers is simple: after your swim, soak your jammers in the sink with some swimsuit cleaner. The formula gently washes away chlorine, bromine, and copper deposits and binds to the suit fabric to protect it from future chlorine damage. Then, gently squeeze out excess water and hang your jammers to dry indoors. If you swim at a YMCA or community pool, just rinse your swimsuit thoroughly in fresh water, dry it with your towel, and hang it up when you get home.
