update from last update********26FEB2021**********
Reviewed in the United States on February 26, 2021
So it appears the original set of pants I bought are no longer available - but by comparison (since these are the same make and brand) it seems to me that the black color pants are just cut differently - which unfortunately for me means they don't fit my bum very well:-(
But, just like the last 2-pack I bought the non-black pair, in this case for this pack, the blue pair fit quite nicely. Not sure what's going on with that but it's almost as if the 2-packs are all coupled with a different color version to try to make up for the black pair - which they may know isn't going to fit properly.........
The short of it - IMHO they should probably offer this item as a stand alone so that a consumer can get a good fitting pare of compression pants and not have to worry about a useless pair - or - offer 2-packs that are paired without the black color.
Either way, in my book - the best I can give is a 3-star rating simply because I'm not getting what I paid for; two well fitting pairs of compression pants.
on a side note - I did order a size up from my previous order and the XL fits me just as comfortably as the L size.
*******UPDATE 16FEB2021*******Been wearing these for the past 4 days here in Georgia -we got a cold rainy spell that hit and these compression pants REALLY did the trick in that dreary mess:-) kept in the heat, felt great and made those 8 hour days out on the range go by much better/comfortably!**********
Original review -
Picked these up to try out during work and out on some 4-wheelin excursions:-)
So my first thoughts; I think I bought a size to small or my posterior is a little to big for them. I wear a large; 34 waist and these items fit just a little lower than I'm use to. The cut seems short for a man with a "round cute bottom" as my wife likes to describe it:-)
But that's really it. I like the cut of the legs, the fit; which is not to tight or to loose on my thighs and in the crotch area, the compression they provide is comfortable and functional.
