The Ranger Panty is a favorite of military personal. It is made of loose fitting soft tricot and it won't snag or run. The Ranger Panty features an internal liner, improved pocket for keys or ID, and will be the only thing you'll want to wear. The Ranger Panty is often referred to as silkies.
Wear the same short that US military uses. This running short is cut to a small 2.25 inches inseam for the seious runner looking for a true training fundamental.

There are plenty of reviews for these shorts, but I wouldn't feel right if I didn't help support them like they've supported me over the last 15 years. It does take a certain kind of courage to wear these shorts in public, but even if you don't rock them alone, they're the best choice for a daily undergarment, especially in the summer heat/desert combat environment.
These are $11.24 right now and prime eligible for free shipping. Even if you buy them direct from Soffe, they're $12.99 plus shipping. These used to be sold on base for 8 bucks a pair, but even now if you can find them at your exchange, they're $12.
They last forever. I think I still have a couple of my original pairs from the 90's. The elastic never wears out, and they hold up pretty well under all sorts of conditions. One word of caution though, keep them away from velcro. They are made of nylon, so they do snag and can get "runs" in them. Of the dozens of pairs that I've owned, the common failure after several years of constant wear for me is the inner liner, but this is usually after 60+ daily wears plus running, swimming, etc. Some of mine have discolored in chlorine, and if you wear them often in the sun, they will fade to a nice salty seafoam color. They look great on guys and gals. In fact, most of my female Marines prefer them for running.
The biggest difference between these shorts and a lot of the competition is the nylon material, the waistband, and the option of only 3 manly colors on Amazon (Soffe also makes a Gun Metal version). The waistband is not the typical elastic waistband that you might be used to. It's VERY thin and comfortable on these shorts. It will also last you a long, long time (I can't ever remember having the waistband fail on me). The nylon tricot material actually seems to be hard to find these days in other running shorts. Most of today's shorts are made out of the so called "dri-fit" polyester or microfiber. In my opinion, the dri fit shorts are great, but the waistbands are always thicker, and the shorts themselves just are not as comfortable as these, especially if you're wearing them under something else. These shorts, like others, advertise a key pocket, but I never felt confident using it, and if I had to take a key with me, I think threading it through my laces is a better option anyway.
Here's some product info and an accurate sizing chart so you can say my review was helpful:
-100% lightweight nylon tricot
-Inside key pocket
-2 - 2¼" inseam on all sizes
-Covered elastic waistband
MENS WAIST 28-30: SMALL
MENS WAIST 32-34: MEDIUM
MENS WAIST 36-38: LARGE
MENS WAIST 40-42: X-LARGE
MENS WAIST 44-46: XX-LARGE
My two cents: you can be at least 2 inches over the recommendation for each size. Enjoy!
The material is fine. I actually went to the gym with them on. I've got to admit I felt a tad self conscious on the drive over, but realized- "hey, I think guys who wear there shorts baggy and past their knees look idiotic! Who the heck cares what anyone thinks!"
So, I did my HIIT training on the treadmill- took a minute to get used to the feeling of running in briefs, but I figured if ya got it, flaunt it! Killed it on the treadmill followed by a Tabata session on the stationary bike.
People would gawk as I walked past, but I remained in MY zone!
I HIGHLY recommend you get yourself a pair of these bad boys, especially if you've got some quads and glutes to support them! IG_ sowhatmovesyou
