I got these for bike rides and hot yoga. They are ok for hot yoga, but not great. They really show sweat and the sweat makes them fairly see through. That is not a huge deal since they come with the black spandex-like "underwear". However, when wet you can see the front pocket distinctly since there is more fabric. Makes you look a bit dorky, which does not help if you are trying to impress the hot girls in hot yoga. Also, since I got the orange ones your beans and frank are more obvious when wet. The black version would keep it all ambiguous. The 5" seem might have also been better for yoga and maybe bike rides.
