These Under Armour heatgear compression shorts are made of a single thin, breathable layer of moisture-wicking fabric. They have a distinct elastic waistband that is fairly soft, but sturdier than the Nike Pro Combat waistband. They have a low crotch and relatively flat front panel, similar to the Starter, but not as low as those. They still feel like they push everything back between your legs, but there is some small amount of support, rather than just hanging. Although they seem like they are higher quality and they are certainly a popular brand, I didn’t really like the way they fit.
