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.
-Both pairs have a rectangle of material, dead center where the inner seams meet. Think of it as a little shelf for your family jewels. Gives them some space. On the new pair, this rectangle is much smaller and oriented back-to-front. On the older pair, it is much larger and oriented left to right. The result is, the new pair is much tighter in the crotch. Also, because there's less fabric, they can expose your inner thighs and result in chafing. I have to continually hike them up when I'm on the treadmill.
It seems the fundamental difference between the old product and the new product is the lack of pouch for an athletic supporter. Under Armour no longer offers a compression short product with an athletic supporter. [...] . The old, awesome product has been discontinued. The current sub-standard product misleadingly carries over the overwhelmingly positive reviews of the original product. As I retire the last of my originals and am left with only the new ones, I cannot recommend the product. They wear easily. The inner thigh seams split with little use. I have the chafing marks to prove it. If you want a comfortable pair of underpants, they're great. If you want a product in which you can regularly exercise, do not buy these.
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. It is puzzling how these made it through testing at a company that prides itself on quality, design, and engineering. They should have never made it through.
-they provide no compression
-they ride/bunch up
-the vented material is tearing in less than 6 months
-can't rely on the audited reviews on the UA site
I'm 5'10'' and about 185 pounds. I wear 33-34 inch jeans and almost always have to wear a belt with those to keep them up.
You will definitely want to go a full size up. Don't make the same mistake I did, ordering 3 of these in a short time. Maybe get one, wait a month or more and then decide if the size works and you want more. I wish I would have ordered XL but it's too late now.
