The information available on the website at the time of this writing did not indicate that these are compression underwear, but they are made of a stretchy elastic type man-made material. They do not, however, have any feel like they are compressing. They do look like they are small enough to be compression gear (see comparison photo with a competitor, these are on the right), though . They really do turn out to be just thin, stretchy underwear (see close up photo). I found them comfortable enough, as they stayed in place during my runs and while cleaning out the garage one weekend. They didn’t rub or chafe, or cause any other problems “down under”. The thin material kept me cool, as well, but I didn’t notice any wicking properties outside of that of regular elastic fabric. The waistband is nice and thick, which helps position the pant and keep it in place. They do come with some ginormous tags that contain everything from Slovenian washing instructions to Chilean import tax codes (see photo). These tags are, fortunately, and wisely, tear-away material. (And yes, I tore them out in short order.)
Overall, these are fairly well-constructed, comfortable, seemingly durable, good looking underpants. I didn’t notice anything that would set them apart from any other brand, however, which makes them more or less an average choice in my running gear drawer, which is why I rate them at three stars.
Slowly I moved to put these on -- I didn't want to rip them, and wasn't sure they would fit. I will say that I was surprised by how much these stretch! They were actually fairly easy to pull on. The fabric was thin, but feels strong. I have had ZERO issues with these underwear 'riding up'. The 9" length is perfect for me - I tend to have issues with the 6" and shorter getting bunched.
As for the waistband - yes, it still feels weird. It feels really stiff, but yet I've not had issues with it 'rolling' (I have a beer gut) like some other brands and styles. It has been comfortable and does not cut into my waist.
Overall, I highly recommend the Armourvent Mesh! These are great for those days when you are going to be super active - regardless of whether you're working out (these are great for the gym or fitness training) or walking around a theme park with the kids all day. These will keep you cool and dry, and I found them to be very supportive in the right places. They also dry quickly and remain pretty odor free, which is good if you sweat a lot!
Note on tags: Under Armour does have a habit of using some ridiculously large and obnoxious tags - I have not yet understood that about them. But they also tear out easily, so long term it's no big deal. But I wish UA would stop using them, as I'm always concerned I'll accidentally tear stuff.
Some Under Armour boxers have a fly and some don't. A fly adds bulk and is probably less comfortable for hot weather sports. These boxers do not have a fly.
Under Armour sizing is a little smaller than USA standard. See the attached size chart.
Right out of the box I used these for a very active day including a 5+ mile trek. They performed beautifully, wicking sweat away where I need it most and keeping me from chafing. Also, the significant benefit of Under Armour underwear for me compared to much of the competition that I have tried is that the longer compression shorts don't ride up during activity. I have quite large quads and during activity, they seem to take most underwear that has coverage down my leg (which I like for no chafing) and ride them up over time. The Armourvent Mesh like other Under Armour compression shorts and tighter underwear stays firmly in place without readjustment needed.
The improvement in Armourvent Mesh compared to other compression short-style underwear I've used from Under Armour is incremental. It's not dramatic, but it is indeed improved especially in the moisture- and heat-transfer department. The price is not any more expensive than comparable products from UA or other companies. It's not a bargain, but for something that for me either makes a long run or stressful day comfortable or annoying, i think the extra money is worth it. Also, just based on a few years of experience, UA underwear seems to have a durability that outperforms competition. So the money you spend will last more than twice as long as something less comfortable that costs half as much.
I do recommend you do some comparison shopping as I found these a bit cheaper with coupon code straight from UA than on Amazon with more size options available at the time of writing this review.
