Nike Dry Fit:
-Medium size pockets that hold a cell phone in place while moving in gym
-no vented sides
-deep pockets that won’t hold wallet/keys etc in place while hiking, moving etc. (hits a guy in the crotch while moving!)
-Poor stitching on outside ( poor aesthetic looks)

The Good – Great fit at the waste. I am currently a 34 although I can wear a 36 (in denim pants) the L size of these fits tighter but not overly so. The XL size still fits fine but is more loose. If you wear a 36-38 consistently, I recommend XL or XL-T. If you are more 34-32 then get the L or L-T. I go between 36 and 34 so I got both! The T just means “tall” and the inseam is 2″ longer.
The waste band is different from normal elastic (better) The fabric is 4 way stretch so it is comfortable lets you move however you want. Extremely good in HOT temps. If there is any wind it’s like you have nothing on. Even with no wind or indoor, they are extremely “light”. Even in winter, I wear these to bed with long johns under or just these.
The thin, light fabric seems to last. I have washed them normally with darks in a normal washer and they still look and fell like the new ones.
The Bad – They are expensive. (but worth it) You need the right size, The fabric is so thin it’s almost see-through with a light source behind it especially when stretched. (if you care)
There are more “trendy” or others with stuff printed on them, but I don’t care about what others think. Any downside is what other might think of them (on you) wearing them is a pleasure. I think they look very good.
A phone in your pocket weighs more than the shorts do.
For men…the pockets are nice to have, but running or being active….anything in the pockets can bounce around and hit you in areas that things shouldn’t hit.
Neutral – If you find a product from UA you like – pay close attention to the exact details. They have a bunch of different technologies and fabrics. It’s hard to find the exact same thing you own months or years later. I’m pretty sure they have changed or discontinued some of their “models” but overall UA is excellent IF you get an item that fits – and is made of the kind of fabric you like.
Charged cotton shirts are some of the best fabric I’ve ever worn. (These are not charged cotton, but I think this fabric works better for shorts, for me)
While looking for these I got a pair called UA 9″ Qualifier Woven. They are a totally different fabric. Not a bad thing, just different and not as good for me. (refer to neutral section)
I once got a UA shirt with the strangest magnetic, static electric, dust collecting properties I’ve ever seen. It was unusable.

The pockets are a mesh-type material and are strong enough to hold just about whatever you might need on-the-go. I can see how some people may view them as being “see-through”. If you stretch them out, you can see light through them. However, even on “lighter” colors like my orange, I can’t see my own underwear through them. You shouldn’t have any issues with people getting a good look at anything when you get your pump on, except your tremendous gainz.
I’m 5’7″ and these touch just past my knees. They are great for the money, especially if you can catch them on sale. They’ll definitely last and prove to be worth the $25-$30.
Needless to say, running in these feels fantastic as they are SUPER light weight and really helps you establish a strong stride and maintain form. But yeah, the capering was unexpected with the stock photos.
