    So I pickeuome UA's and ended up returning them... they were very thick and felt kind of akward, also the 'longs' were too long and the 'regular' felt kind of short... going to get the Nike Pro and try them out (plus they are a few $$ cheaper I think).

    I have a couple pairs of UA, my only complaint is the pilling that occurs around the crotch/asshole region but I suppose it's to be expected from all that friction. I wear mine mostly for running but i never found out, are you supposed to wear boxers/briefs with them? I just put them on top of my boxers but i always wind up with a nasty wedgie so i don't use them as often now.

    You wear compression shorts then whatever your regular workout shorts or pants. You don't wear boxers or briefs with them. They're meant to be worn as workout underwear so wearing them on top of your boxers or briefs defeats the purpose of them.

    UA compression shorts for me, I find the best fit will be the football style with the velcro straps and cup holder.

    They are a must when playing rugby. I have found that the
    Kooga brand isthe most durable. You can buy them from some US rugby retailers.

    Otherwise, I understand that the nike compression shorts are a good choice.


    What others brands have you tried? So far (~2 years) I'm happy with my Canterburys.

    I used to wear under armor a lot when I played basketball/soccer/football and they were just fine. I also wore the nike ones and the generic brand. I found that the name brand ones were a bit more tailored but I've never ripped any of them. I have the same waist size as you and I have huge thighs and I wear a medium. A large is going to be too big for you, in my honest opinion.

    It's all about UA. +1 to whoever said to go mid thigh length. They're my go to underwear. Breathable, comfy, no thigh rash from rubbing, they don't stink, and they can absorb a ton of perspiration, I've had one of my pairs for almost 7 years now, and the only problem is a bit of pilling. They work great for walking or working out, and refuse to tear. The Nike shorts felt really thin and cheap when I tried them,

    yes definitely go with the mid thigh. HK you dont find them to be a bit hot? I mean Im not a fat guy but damn my package gets uncomfortable after a while in them.

    Nope. It's probably just because I'm used to sweating (I got genetically fucked on this end), but it doesn't bother me at all. UA under my shirt is another story, however.

    man your genetically fucked...hell I am having this battle with underarm sweat and I am not on the winning end. I mean I wear boxer briefs and I dont mind them, but if I am going to the library to study I definitely wear just plain woven cotton boxers.

    I highly recommend them for a few reasons. I bought a pair of them accidentally at the Off-Sax 5th Ave in Schaumburg, Il. They were regular price $68.00 marked down to $19.99 and for some reason I was in a hurry assumed it was a three-pack. It wasn't. But I swear it improved my posture and stance, and made sitting in a driving position for long periods more tolerable. when I got around to working out in them, they breathed well and the sweat seemed to evaporate faster, and no feeling of swamp-ass as you might expect.

    The brand was Equmen and I think it may be exclusive to Sax, but I was so impressed, I went back and picked up two more pair (they didn't have many in stock to begin) before my size was gone. I've laundered and line dried them through several dozen wears and workouts with no pilling at all and yes, keeps the junk where it needs to be without strangling them.
