Material

While many trunks use the same type of materials in their construction the quality of those materials can be drastically different. These shorts use a high-performance polyester for the majority of their design. This material offers great flexibility. What this means is these shorts will truly move with you. Another great thing about them being 100% polyester, is the fact that they will do an excellent job at wicking moisture away from your body. This will give you a much more comfortable experience even if you spend long hours training in the gym. You will be cooler and drier. There are two other materials that are used in this option. They have a wide elastic waistband. There is also a drawstring so that you can easily adjust the fit. All of the material seen within the shorts are quite durable and offer a good deal of comfort. Overall, customers are exceptionally satisfied with the choice of materials used here.

Fit

The fit of these shorts is not exceptionally flowy yet they are not exceptionally tight either. They are slightly loose and will offer you great range of motion while you are wearing them. This is due to the fact that the material stretches in every direction easily. The traditional wide waistband plays a major role in the fit of these trunks. It truly helps to keep them in place and it also makes them more comfortable. Obviously, the elastic waist will give you extra room to accommodate equipment like groin protectors. They also have a drawstring on the inside. This will allow you to easily tighten or loosen them depending on the equipment you may or may not be using.

Durability

Polyester is known for its excellent durability.
