5.0 out of 5 stars Super comfortable, November 5, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This shirt is super soft and comfortable. It isn't as snug as I expected, and didn't shrink as much in the wash as people would have led me to believe, but it still fits like a glove (albeit, a glove with a bit of wiggle room). It's longer than your average shirt, warm in the colder months, but still not so heavy that you couldn't wear it in spring. Great for layering, or just wearing on its own.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good on their own, but together, crap, September 3, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The compression shorts are comfortable, fit well, and keep everything together nicely. You know, where it all should be. The cup is solid, but flexible, and breathable. But when you actually put the cup inside the pocket on the compression shorts... you have to wonder what the people at Shock Doctor were thinking.

First of all, the pocket for the cup is OUTSIDE of the compression shorts. So when the cup is inserted, it just kind of floats there above your junk. It's not very snug, not very tight. Lo and behold, the first time I was kicked while wearing the cup/shorts combo, it pinched something fierce and scared me for my future progeny.

There is a quick fix: if you wear the cup in a jock underneath the shorts then all is well. It works quite nicely this way. But that entails buying a jock. Which was not my intention in buying this combo in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid knee pads, August 9, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I set out looking for good, cheap pads, and ended up on these. I train in a stand up striking martial art, and these are good for the occasion that we go to the ground, or for a kick to the knee. My only gripe with them is that they're thick and retain a lot of moisture, so they can get uncomfortable after prolonged use (especially if you sweat a lot). If you're on a budget though, these are good, solid pads.
