I have been wearing this type of underwear for years on a daily basis. My legs run together which causes me to chafe constantly and this type of underwear prevents that from happening. I also am very active with things like jui-jitsu so this type of underwear is great. I think spending $22 on underwear is ridiculous so I have bought all sort of brands, in this style, when they are on sale. Here is my ranking of a few brands:
#1 - C9 - this is the Champion less expensive brand at Target. You can pick them up for $11. They fit great and they last a long time. The only reason I don't exclusively buy these because they only sell it in black, gray, and white. They do not have multiple band colors which makes it difficult to distinguish when traveling. Fyi, the white is pretty much see through which I am not a fan of.
#2 - Champion - also great but they are more expensive than the C9 and basically the same product so just go to Target to get the C9.
#3 - Reebok - fits great, light weight and seems to last a while. Will buy more when I see them at the store.
#4 - New Balance - these are good but they have a tag in the back that wraps from the inside all the way around in order to cover up the seam for the band. If you can get past it they are fine.
#5 - The original black Under Armor underwear are not too bad.
#6 - The Under Armor Heat Gear - I will not be buying these again. They fit too tight in the thighs.
I have not tried the Nike Compact yet but they seem like they would fit nice. The compact shirts fit nice.
The last thing I would say is do not buy the 3" cause it defeats the purpose, and the 6" can at times tend to ride up which can get annoying. Hope all this helps.
