    Fit: Tight. They're compression shorts. Of course they're tight. Maybe a little tighter than previous versions of this product.
    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).

    Edit 12/4/2013
    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.

    History: I owned 6 pairs of UA compression shorts prior to purchasing these "newer" shorts. They are thick material and provide good support, don't bunch up, and very high quality (3 pairs are 8 years old and 3 pairs are 4 years old). I purchased 3 pairs of these compression shorts from UA's site without knowing UA changed the material and design. I also own many pairs of UA shorts, Ts, Polos, Sweats, and Boxer briefs and always thought their products the best.

    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.

    Ordered these not realizing that UA has since changed what their compression shorts are made of. The older more durable ones (the ones I've had for 7+ years of incredibly heavy use and are now just starting to fall apart) are made of nylon/elastane. These ones are made of polyester/elastane. They are way thinner and less durable than the old kind. Not to mention there are plenty of substitutes (nike/reebok/eastbay to name a few) that are just as good quality, if not better. If you're looking for the older style UA compression shorts THESE ARE NOT IT. Look elsewhere! You've been warned. I've been a user of UA since they started (I was in high school at the time playing football) I'm incredibly disappointed in the drop in quality and unless they go back to the old way I supposed I'll go for one of the other competitors who are much better priced.

    I feel like I got scammed. I'm so glad I didn't throw out my old compression shorts. These shorts are the same as underwear but less compression.
    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

    My sons wore these while camping and hiking. They were recommended as preventative measure, to wear under shorts to prevent chafing. Worked like a charm, and no complaints about being hot.

    Bought these for the Tough Mudder because al of my other compression shorts weren't for hot weather. They worked great, dried quickly, no chaffing. Top quality. They are also good as new after a wash.
