Performance: Unreal. They wick away sweat from the hottest, sweatiest part of a man's body. If you're curious, get a pair. You will not be disappointed.
Quality: Lacking. If you're biking/running/walking in them 4-5 days a week, you'll have to replace them in six months or less. I'm not aware of a better performing product.
When I first bought these, in 2011, I would have given them six stars. They're amazing. They're life-changing. However, the "Under Armour Men's HeatGear® Compression" underpants product line has changed over time. It was once a sturdy product with heavy cloth waistband, crazy-strong stitching on the seams, and lasted years. The current generation is flimsy in comparison. I'm now retiring shorts I bought in early 2012, along side ones I bought in mid-2013. The product I bought in 2011/2012 for $30 a pair (B001EN027S is unavailable. The current generation of this product performs well, but does not last. All the awesome things you read in the other reviews are true, but not for long. The inner thigh seams tear after six months of exercise (treadmill or biking 4-5 days a week).
I compared a new pair with an old pair and noted the following differences:
-The fabric is lighter and thinner.
-The waistband is lighter and thinner.
-The stitching in the new pairs are uneven. The seams on the inner thigh are not symmetrical.
-The new pair does NOT have a pouch to put an athletic supporter. The old one does.Read more ›
Findings: These have very thin material for the shorts and the vented material is even thinner. I've had them for 6 months now and each pair gets worn once a week for running/working out/rec sports depending on the day and the vented material is tearing already! The shorts don't provide any compression due to the thin material. There is a thick band at the bottom of the legs which is supposed to keep them from riding up--it doesn't work. The previous version had the seam down the side, thick compression material, a cup shaped vented material that kept everything in place, and don't ride up.
I submitted the above review on UAs site and it was rejected. I reviewed the negative reviews on this product and they only stated poor fit so it appears UA won't allow negative review that call out poor quality. I also went to the UA outlet store so I could review the compression shorts before buying more and they were all--vented and nonvented) on the discount rack for 12 bucks. The sonic nonvented shorts are the same thin material with no compression. Finding UA compression shorts discounted was unheard of for the previous compression shorts. You couldn't find them discounted anywhere--because they were the best.Read more ›
The bad : paper thin, no compression, super short, and couldn't stop the burn of my legs rubbing together while running.
I'm scared to buy any other pairs of under armor compression shorts, may have to move on to a new.brand

Quality has been reduced in these things. I have a older model FROM UA, and they are totally different. I went and bought some Tesla ones. Do not recommend this anymore.Published 7 hours ago by D. Herasme
